Absolutely gibberish...

Here goes...

The website for Resorts World Singapore is up and running : RW. So far I have had absolutely no luck in making any hotel reservations for mid-February. Turns out they are fully booked for the Chinese New Year week until 21st February within hours... Perhaps next time.... probably after Universal Studio's opening.

The HK police caught someone who might have been the person behind the acid bombs a few days ago. But is he the real culprit, one of many copycat culprits, or just an unlucky dude who decided to go upstairs for a smoke? [被捕人為大廈住客,他未能合理解釋為何會在大廈天台出現].

Today's headlines : [警員早到半分鐘 可擒廟街腐彈狂] - The police could have caught the acid terror if they were 30 seconds earlier. So the person caught earlier was really just an unlucky fellow. And how can anyone be sure that they are only 30 seconds late? And now that it is all over the news that the police will seal all staircases/entrances to buildings in affected area within ONE minute, the culprit may change strategy and leave the bottle or bottles on a ledge somewhere hoping for a strong gust of wind to knock it over, giving him/her ample time to walk away from the scene. Perhaps they should just keep their mouth shut and implement their actions...

Just realised that I missed out on many Singapore fare on my recent trip. Katong Laksa, Hokkien Prawn Mee, Fried Kway Teow, Indian Rojak, Fish Ball Mee Pok, Kueh Tu Tu, Mee Goreng... I'm really sick of this wet and cold weather... I'm glad we have a heater, otherwise we would have turned into ice in the middle of the night!

It was great sleeping out in the living room with the dogs~ Could see that they were contented little puppies. Perhaps that's the best location in the apartment to sleep in, dogs and humans alike. Read an article regarding a dog farm somewhere in China. I'm sure there are many similar farms in China, producing enough dog food for people who decide that eating dog food will warm their body up for the winter months. Richard Gere and a dog, Avatar, Robin Williams... some movies out there but no time no time!!! I really need to find time for a show this weekend...

The situation in Malaysia is doing nothing to help Islam's image in the world. Feed molotov cocktails and paint just because of a word. I love this quote from their Home Ministry the best: "Be fair, you have to compare apples to apples, oranges to oranges. Our landscape is different from other countries. Malays here are different from (Muslims in) other countries."

Basically it means non-Muslims can use "Allah" as a translation for God in other countries but in Malaysia they can't. Isn't that depriving other religions of their right to address their own God in publications? Hey why not someone come up with another word for God in Malaysia?

You can buy a landed property in Malaysia for a tenth of the price you pay in Singapore. One wonders why so many Singaporeans don't just buy a place across the causeway... or maybe they already did? Gotta ask my mum...

How many dogs -- not to mention endangered species -- die because of ridiculous Chinese superstition and "medical" beliefs?
