Proving the fairer sex...loves their balls as well

Gal in a little island called Singapore (yes, the country that has nice airport, is super clean, canes people who vandalise, bans chewing gum...but that's another story...).

Just like most people, she adores her balls, big or small. Before you start conjuring kinky thoughts, we're talking about sports here, my dear. Ball games.

Of course, she doesn't mind those balls too. Heh.

Moving House

Not going to be hanging here anymore.

No particular reason lah, just that...i miss my old blog.

Yup, I used to blog pretty actively on another site, and of another nature. Very different from what you see here. Those who know me understand I thrive on diversity. Haha.

And these days, I'm too tired to write in full sentences all the time anyway, so it's really the best time to move back.

If you like, you can always pay a visit - http://strangecloud.efx2.com/

If not, guess this is adios! : )

Bangkok

I love the taxis in Bangkok...they are bright pink!






The cabs in Singapore are comparatively so boring. SMRT should consider switching to pink, seriously. Instead of the dull yellow-top and blue, a dash of dynamic pink will no doubt electrify our roads.



Had a wonderful time immersing myself in the hustle and bustle of busy Bangkok...it's really a shopping haven for all shophaholics. Plus food and beer is cheap!





Have a 'Heineken Draff Bear'? Hahaaa.



And, while I was there, I bought Palmy's new album Beautiful Ride!





Loved the girl since 2004...love her songs, her spunk, her energy on stage. That year, I remembered when I heard Palmy was coming for Tiger Beer's Birthday party concert Euphoria, I jumped at the chance to go and had to psycho my journalist friend in bringing me along to the press con - where i got to shook hands and take photos with here...very memorable - and also get VIP tiks to the concert itself. On this album (her third), she's matured quite a bit, image-wise. But her songs still rock. And that's what's important.

For some odd reason, I returned to Singapore nursing a cold. Bleah. There seems to be a flu bug going around, take care everyone.

Oh Lions, you were so close...

By now, if you haven't heard of our Singapore national football team's oh-so-very-close encounter against China, you must have been living under a rock.



The Lions put up a gallant fight against their higher-ranked opponents, and was so near to holding them to a draw...then everything crashed down when a penalty was awarded to the Chinese in the very last minute of injury time.



Now, how sway can that be?



But in any case, hopefully, the Lions can keep their heads up and brace themselves for a better challenge when they take on China again in the return leg, right here at the National Stadium!





Fans, time to turn up in full force and recreate the atmosphere during the Tiger Cup! Hehe.

Grasshoppers

Watching the Grasshoppers 2005 comeback concert is sheer delight...it's like tunneling back in time and revisiting all those songs you love during your childhood.





Remember Bao Bei Dui Bu Qi and Ai Bu Pa, among other catchy, wonderfully irreverent tunes? Only the Grasshoppers could pull them off with such effortless piazzaz.



Besides those jumpy songs, I also like their slow, moving ballads.






失乐园 (Sap Lok Yun) is a perennial favourite of mine.



"结果我共你
仍然逃不过被围攻被舍弃
爱得惊天动地总算运气
无论褒贬尊与卑
爱可有定理
谈情谁讲理越无理越凄美
就算飞天遁地万年千里
亦决定要共你一起

苦恋注定难我已经习惯
沿途承受不留情的双眼
请给我负担叫世上人间
平凡情侣为你共我轰烈汗颜


苦恋注定难我却这样贪
途人凝望中寂静的称赞
请给我负担叫世上人间
惶惶情侣在美丽与悲哀之间
留一线空间..."
