Interesting People In Singapore

I was at King’s Centre just now to pass something to my friend as she had asked me to help her to purchase online some stuffs some time back on her behalf.

I was quite shocked by the attitude of the security guard as he was chasing me and another gentleman around my age out of the building. The gentleman was reacted angrily after being chased out of the building that he shouted that the security guard was crazy and the security guard told him off saying “God is great”.

Not wanting to be part of the topic of the heated argument, I decided to walk out of the building and waited for my friend outside the building.

I feel a little uneasy when I saw this incident happening. This was going through my mind as it happened.

  1. We were waiting at the lobby in front of the security counter, which I feel was in no way obstructing or causing any disturbances to any of its tenants as it was definitely after office hours. I did tell him that I was waiting for my friend and had attempted to contact her but to no avail.
  2. If he had felt that our presence had caused unnecessary disturbances, he could have told us in a polite way to get out of the building, instead of hurling remarks at us.

I wonder if this security guard had learnt basic courtesy in school previously.

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.
