Why Are Some People So Thick Skin?

I had received a surprise phone call from one of my cousins early this morning, just as I was about to set out to Marine LIfe Park.

This cousin of mine told me that one of my friends, whom I introduced her some years ago had asked her for a loan, despite meeting her only once. I have since cut off contact with this friend of mine, also because of money issues about 4 years ago. I have since advised my cousin not to let her any money, unless she wish to see the last of her money lent to her.

Something left me rather disturbed. Why is it that up to now, ever since I know her, she has been going around asking people for loans, living off friends’ friendly credit terms, and now, you have the cheek to ask from a person that you have only met once?

Just hope that this person can really change for the better as I believed she has married and her behaviour still leaves much to be desired.

An Update To The Walking Bus Guide

I decided to clear my mind of the work troubles that I decided to take the bus and update my bus routes knowledge with the recent amendments to some of the bus services in the area that I am staying in and the transition to the Bus Contracting Model, where LTA is now the central route planner of the bus routes.
Here are the list of updated bus routes that I have known since my last post about this in 2014.

My Hosting Script for The National Day Event

I just managed to work out the draft hosting script for the National Day Event I am hosting. I am thankful for all the comments that I have received from my fellow RC members and friends.
Just feel that sometimes, no matter whatever you do, some people, no matter for what reasons, will not be happy with the arrangements. I just wish to say that I am already trying my best to try to get this event going, considering the fact, that this is the 1st time I am organising an RC event. I have also tried my best, despite the fact that I would like to have a free hand to organise the event, just like what I usually do for the KTV events I have on Facebook, I accommodated to the requests that I should somehow follow the past years’ format to do the event. I know that I am not very familiar with how things are run at the RC, therefore in the end, my organising committee only made some changes to the event as we had a limited budget to work on. I even volunteered myself to do the hosting for the e…

Pantang- Meaning Things Not To Do In Hokkien

There are certain things which some Chinese are pretty particular with:- Happy and sad events can't clash together within 100 days to a year. If a relative or loved one were to pass away, the immediate family member can't attend a happy event, like wedding & housewarming.The Teochews treat their eldest male grandchild as their youngest son. If you are getting married & your friend who is getting married invites you to his wedding, u are not allowed to attend. The old people say happy events clash.The red packet can't be given twice for a happy event. Likewise for the condolence packet.One should not give shoes or lamp to a birthday boy or gal, as it is believed that you may bring the person to his deathbed.These are some interesting stuff to share, especially to some blog readers who are not living in a place filled with Chinese.
