3 Days and countless things more to do


Yup.. 3 more days and its the promotional exams. However, there is still a pile of things to be done and revised... ARrgh!!...

Went to school today.. Class was half empty / half full.. Half of the class stayed home today...

For the first time, we had lessons in the Watson and Crick biololgy IT lab...

Oh gosh.. I did not know that sitting in the school were 13 Apple G5 Macs... I aren"t sure whether its G5 or the new macs with Intel Processors, but definitely a Mac... And thats only the Watson lab... I assume that Crick"s lab would have the same facilities which means that we have 26 Apple Macs.

Those labs must have cost a lot.. And oh... I like Apple"s mighy mouse... haha


When I was surfing the net to relief some stress, I was surprised to find that Microsoft made Virtual PC 2004 free.

Wow.. I've been hoping for this to happen. However, it seems that the only supported platforms are Windows XP Professional and Windows 2000 Professional... Windows XP Home aren"t even supported.. But I installed anyway... Shouldn" be a problem since XP Pro is supported..

Blog Layout and Singapore Idol

yup.. changed layout.. so happy with this new one...

For the first time it is a fully fluid layout. Its still standards compliant as usual, although I am still having problems with the blogger inserted codes as they aren't standards compliant rendering my site uncompliant with stricter doctypes..

Couldn't migrate fully from iframes also because browsers have restrictions on cross domain XmlHttpRequest. Thus I have to use back and iframe for the tagbaord...

Any comments welcome... whether its on the improvements of the site or the layout, or the accessiblity... Thanks.

OK.. enough tech stuff.

Singapore Idol!!! Finals!!

Yup Singapore Idol 2 finals result show is now shoing... wonder who will win... This time round its a bit hard to determine...

Oh well... off to watch it...

Wrong Timing

Oh man... first mouth got ulcers, then found out that one of my wisdom teeth is growing. Arrgh...

"Wisdom teeth are third molars that usually appear between the ages of 17 and 24 (although they may appear when older, younger, or may not appear at all). They are commonly removed when they affect other teeth—colloquially known as "coming in sideways."

Wisdom teeth are often described as an example of a "vestigial" trait. Some argue that recent changes to softer diets which cause less wear on the teeth may be causing the third molars to be less useful, and, in fact, problematic in many humans. Alternately, it is possible that wisdom teeth were useful when it was common for humans to lose several teeth to decay by the age when they appear.

Although most people have four wisdom teeth, it is possible to have more or fewer. Absence of one or more wisdom teeth is an example of hypodontia. Any extra teeth are referred to as supernumerary teeth.

Hope it can hold out until after my A Levels when I decide to remove it.

More chaos and something else...

On Thailand

Martial law.. Never thought I will hear the phrase out of the history class context.

For those who are unsure, "Martial law is the system of rules that takes effect (usually after a formal declaration) when a military authority takes control of the normal administration of justice." (source: Wikipedia)

Whats even more surprising.. Thailand's King Bhumibol Adulyadej on Wednesday, 20th Sep 2006, endorsed coup leader to head the new governing council, according to a televised announcement. (Source: International Herald Tribune)

That was something quite unexpected... Endorsement of a coup... I am curious what's going to happen next...

On a SideNote

Quite a remarkable download speed... Didn't believe my eyes... Too bad its a one off thing.. Never happened again since then.

Anyway, for those curious, xampp is a integrated installer for a WAMP setup (i.e. Windows, Apache, MySQL and PHP). I was setting up a development server on my computer to test my websites...

Starting Soon

Promos are starting soon.. I really need to find time to mug...

oh well

IMF Woes

So its been decided that 22 out of 27 banned activists will be allowed into the country, with the remaining 5 subjected too screenings and interviews first...

While there has been outcry, surely there are people out there who agrees with what SG has done (the ban)...

You may argue that I am young, but I believe and agree that security is also a human right. If we were to make an exception just because a world body is coming here, then will the citizens or even other people respect our laws?

I really can't comment... I don't know the entire picture... Neither will we know the actual impact of this event...

Maybe we should have done things differently... We could have relaxed the security... Take the risk... But if something really happens, they will blame us for not increasing our security...

haiz.. such a dilemma.

Going on and on.. and getting no where....

yea right.. life's going on but it seems that I aren't getting anywhere with revision. Promos in 3 weeks and still got hmwk to clear which is taking time away from revision.. sighz...

Today, the area was undergoing fogging. Came back... on the pathway back to my block, I conuted... About 110 cockroaches and 8 were still alive, before I lost counted.. Thats because I got too distracted when I walked past the lift landing of the adjacent block... There were already about 30 died cockroaches in that area..

oh man... should have taken a picture of that gross situation.. too bad I didn't think of it... BUT I aren't too keen on seeing that scene... HAHA.

.......gy.jz out............

Finally the green light for SJI (International)

Just in the news a while ago. Its announced that the Ministry Of Education has approved the application for the opening of the third international school in Singapore.

St. Josephy's Institution (SJI) International is now officially recognised. An announcement will be made to the current students and parents soon... I think recruitment has already started. Even the new principal for SJI(International) has been chosen.

I wonder we will hear from the SJI Old Boys Asscociation (SJIOBA) too... haha


Shock the other day, Scare today

On Steve Irwin

The other day, the news of the untimely death of Steve Irwin met with disbelief... I actually got the news early in the afternoon when i chance across a blog post about it. I was skeptical of it until I double checked the authenticity of that claim with Australian News site.

The fact finally sunk it when I saw it on the television.

At home

Got such a scare when my uncle's maid called saying that she couldn't wake my grandma up from her sleep.

Turned out to be a false alarm... It seems she had fainted or something along that line.

We still don't know the cause, but I'm are just thankful that nothing happened.
