Bugis day out, new wallet, new fyp parts, new eating place

Popped by Bugis today and if you are there, you will come to understand that the traffic lights in front of bugis street leading to Parco is the ultimate display of the phase "no man's an island" - just think close to 60 people packed onto the lane divider crosswalk island. Unreal! Even the cars are afraid of the...

Dinner with the Puah Family

Got an unexpected call from Cousin Gordon last Sunday telling me about expanding his home internet network for two PCs from one, only that he does not know how to go about doing it.

Previously one of my Uncles kinda like went down in a family contractor business. Being in-debt...
