GUNS FOR SALE! + Free gifts 1 year free of bullets?!


Went Singpost to buy F1 ticket today during my lunch time. Luckily the organiser introduced the 1 day pass for walkabout as i do not intend to attend on all 3 days mainly because of the weekend crowd. Bought a Friday pass, at least it's not so bad on friday...but weekend....F1 crowd + weekend crowd, sure traffic jam.

But i can only collect the ticket anytime in July.

There is one thing i have in mind, what if there's a blackout during the race?...... :x

Wah headroll already.........

The superintendent of the Whitley Road Detention Centre sacked. Went CNA website to check after i took a glimpse on channel 8 news. I didn't get it wrong, several officers were either demoted or charged.

Our reputation really hurts this time round, but then, it's an isolated incident. Overall, i still have strong faith in our security. But Selamat is still missing, how? How long would we take to find him? Singapore is so small but yet it's so difficult to find someone missing....

Don't want to talk about it now, so disappointing.


Bought Football Manager 2008, FM2007 was fun and addictive, 2008 is even better. Haven't get to play much yet except for a few friendly matches, loading time is much faster. This game is more addictive than any other games i have played.

Games aside. I find that i am not very profficient in investment, although i have some profits from penny stocks like KTL, around 18%, unit trust losses have reduced, few funds are back in profits. My portfolio is in better shape now. (I took a peek today)

So i decided to do somemore reading on fundamental analysis, went to NLB to borrow a book by Damodaran, Investment Valuation, to spruce up my skills. Close to 1000 pages, so this will take me awhile to finish.

I think i have the most boring blog in blogspot

I guess so. Lack of image and writings. Hmm... i write boring stuff. I need some suggestions to improve this thang.

Euro 2008

Wednesday, May 21, 2008 / Comments (0) / by sw

It's coming this June. I will be supporting my fav team Holland a.k.a Netherlands. Tough for them i guess, fall in the same group as France, Italy and Romania. No luck in world cup 2006, hopefully euro 2008 will be better for them. One thing, I don't see many Holland's supporters around, any bloggers out there support the team?

Holland really needs some luck because Marco doesn't look like a confident coach....

Any update on Mas Selamat?

What happened to him? What's the status of the search now?

Praying at Wei tuo

Saturday, May 17, 2008 / Comments (0) / by sw

Reached Changi jetty this morning at around 10am. Weather was fine, i didn't see that much people at the jetty. Boarded the bumboat immediatetly with no waiting time.


Very good weather

My breakfast. Mee goreng + fried youtiao with stuffed sotong.

The crowd was fascinating at Ubin, it was very crowded at that hour. Wanted to go chek jawa by foot but then realised that it will take at least 40 mins to reach there....i gave up. Checked with Nature Park information counter about the trails at chek jawa, but then i think there too many people asking the same question..LOL. He looks quite irritated. He talked as if he was rapping.

Anyway, i went over to Wei Tuo Fa Gong which i missed during my first trip to pray. I was surprise to see the couple tending the temple there. We took the same boat to ubin, i thought they were visitors at first.


Entrance to wei tuo

Feeding the tortise at the pond. $1 per packet of treats.

Tried the fortune telling at wei tuo. Not bad, but not very detailed. Ang pao $12. Waited for a long time before my turn, around 1 hour++. Finished at 3pm+, then took a taxi back to the jetty for $5.

Bumboat tickets at $2.50. Anyway, it was a good trip.
Forgotten to call Rajan for my membership.

Nothing much to write

Finally it's Fridayyyyyy.......

I am going to ubin tomorrow morning, will catch the morning bus to changi jetty. Miss the seafood there. The weather looks good today, so i assume tomorrow will be just as fine.

Will stay there until 1 pm, most probably get a taxi at ubin to go chek jawa instead of walking, and leave the place around noon. Cannot stand hot sun.


Got a shock when i read from a forum that LSE passing mark is 40 instead of 34, but thankfully, it's a misunderstanding. UOL's passing mark remains at 34. Heng.

Took leave for so long and i didn't realised that today is Thursday, was thinking that it's Tuesday, didn't realised that Monday is a public holiday. Long weekend is coming...time to visit my tailor to get some new clothes.

Sleepless but not tired

Wednesday, May 14, 2008 / Comments (0) / by sw

Strange isn't it? I have yet to sleep since yesterday for more than 24 hours now. I rushed home after my last papers to take nap (was really sleepy yesterday, lack of sleep for days since the exams), BUT saw the mess in my bedroom, papers all over the place, had to do room cleaning instead. Well, after cleaning up my bedroom, saw a few books which i have borrowed from the i went to return those books by the time i am done..strange! i don't feel sleepy anymore...this is so weird.

I ended up staying awake and alert throughout the whole night till this morning, till this moment! I can't believe it. In fact, i am till alert now...but i am sure i will fall asleep after 12. Is there anything wrong with me???

By the way, i am so free now with basically nothing to do in the evening. Got to find something to do soon. I cannot stand idle around, i have to keep myself busy even on off days...

I will be going to ubin this saturday...too free on sat..hopefuly the weather will be fine. I wanted to visit chek jawa and look at the marine life. Got myself a canon 6mgp camera recently after all the positive reviews i have read. Will try out the capacity of this cam when i am there.

I am going to switch job soon

Tuesday, May 13, 2008 / Comments (0) / by sw

As mentioned earlier, i am looking for a career switch soon, leaving behind a less fulfilling job to embark in a more challenging career.

Silly as it sounds, after working in this company for so long, i still have to leave. It was a tough decision to make. I guess most people will be against this idea of career switch. It won't be easy i supposed as i am not that old neither that young, better do it now then to do it when i am in my 40s.

So i need to spruce up my resume now, making it more perfect.LOL and more marketable. My current format doesn't look too good as compared to the last time i review it. I will have to start from Zero as soon as i get one. Will do that immediately after my break. After sleepless nights, finally i can put down my notes and take a good rest. Got to comb the straitstimes on every saturday from now on. Have to get one before the chinese new year whereby employment will dropped around that time.
Have to get back to work tomorrow. Sianz. I dreaded of going to work now. Sianz..sianz..sianz... nothing else can describe. No more mood for my work already. My marginal utility is diminishing, 5 on a scale of 10.
OK. so much on career. I am going back to my books but this time it's leisure reading. Have a few books in mind now...Richest Man in Babylon, Intelligent Investor and the 2 books i got from

Time to log off. zzzZZZZ soon.

......................................See you.......................................

It's over! time to rest

Tuesday, May 13, 2008 / Comments (0) / by sw

Exams over! I hope my results won't be too bad which i will only know in early september, but for now i can take a long break...maybe go to the beach or town to get some new clothes...and continue my toastmasters. It's tough handling both work and studies...i didn't even go to Formula drift in changi because of the exams....

Nevertheless i am also planning to look for a new job. Good luck to me for job hunting and plenty of good luck for my exams....

Good luck to fellow strugglers whom have other papers to clear.

It's fake and i just realised it. SPI debunked it, but their explaination wasn't correct. GMP did it. So there's no excuse for not working over time now. :(

Finished my stats paper closed to 12pm today, i have some time to rest before to do my next paper on tuesday.

Managed watch Ghost Ship, Killing Words and Crazy Eights today on VCDs. Only Ghost ship is nice, the other two are real boring shows. But i don't quite understand the part where the captain said there's one survivor on the ship and hand a photo to Murphy, was that man in the photo Santos? Was the man in the photo the same person whol killed everyone on board?

I am quite confused about this part, I guess only those who have watched the movie can answer this, i pity the lady actress who ended up in the ghost ship again after she bombed the ship.

Tough tough tough...

Took UOL intro to econs this morning, real tough questions....most probably the lack of practice from me:(, went all the way for my revision until 2.30 am this morning, by the time i woke up...around 7am, i couldn't open my eyes, and i almost went blank during the exams...

So good luck to those taking Intro to Econs today.

Statistics for tomorrow.....

Lazy day for me

Thursday, May 01, 2008 / Comments (0) / by sw

I haven't been updating this blog for a couple of days due to my exams. I can't seem to have enough concentration these days, no matter how mnay hours or how many times i slept in day i will still feel lethargic.

Managed to revised a little bit for my exams this morning, then i left to watch Ironman, but i feel real good after stepping out of my house for a few hours.

Nevertheless, the movie was good. The Ironman suit is very nice and i thought at first, this hero will be a little clumsy in his movements, it's actually the opposite of my assumptions. The ending could have been better. Hope that the incredible hulk will be a feast.

I went to the NTUC club for a game of jackpot before this movie and eventually lost all my tokens. Win some and lost some, in the end i ended up with zero winnings. The club is a little disappointing with ONLY jackpot machines to play... i will get bored if i would have stayed for another 30 mins.

OK. I need to signed off to rest before continuing with my revision.
