I've got a mail...

A mail requested for my opinion on some forum and it started with,

' Dear author of 'What's in store for a God-Blessed Box...' '

DAH... I'm totally embarrassed, for I've forgotten clean that I own a blog! And wait a minute, having a blog makes me an 'author'? =P

Anyway, the never-have-been-blog-savvy me offered no comments, but I thank it for the tight slap that my blog is staling.

I have news, and trivas too. ;P

1. Bear has received result for his annual health screen, and he's beary healthy!! I claim no credit, as we owe everything to God who has blessed us with good health, and every other good things we least deserve. Simply said, we're simply blessed. All thanks to our heavenly Father above. =)

2. Lil bro serving in the army, is back home in a piece after a month of intensive overseas training. =D I was praying that all typhoos would shun Taiwan and come Japan instead. =P My sweet hunk is assigned to combat, so everything's naturally tough but he has never complained. Army has made the boy a big man now.

Kudos to all Singapore's boys who serve and protect our country!

3. Japan has enjoyed a good long holiday amidst the comfortable autumn, and still enjoying local produce of huge plump juicy grapes ( 巨峰 ). If you think you like grapes, wait till you've tried Jap's. It' so good, it's insatiable!

Some vegetables are dirt cheap these days, a carrot comes with 4 free. If nutritionists are right about ' you are what you eat ', come see me look like grapes and carrot in a week.

4. Tsk. What's up with the blog radio again. =( Gotta start searching for a new radio. Grr...

5. I've received another mail from a reader. The font of the blog is feedbacked ' too small '. Do you think so?

6. I'm having a new love...


I shout ' GORGEOUS!!'. Nod your head this instant. Fully-bloomed at last, 3 weeks after acquisition ( one bud outstanding actually ), and I can't wait to show off my new love. =P


7. My instincts have named it 'Grapey'. Its blooms look like bunches of mouth-watering grapes, you agree with me? Yeah? Horrid Bear calls me ' predictable '. Grrr...

Right, I'm done for this week's, and I'm reaching for a bunch of grapes now. I said 'grapes', not 'Grapey', you heard me. =P

Glorious summer night

Summer of 09 has absolutely left in a hurry. A week or so of hot brew is all I can remember,with the rest nice and breezy. Now that I'm typing this, the weather forecast is declaring today as a ' fair-weathered autumn day ' and yes, I'm already putting on my fleece jacket.

We managed to catch the last fireworks of summer this year, and we're incredibly blessed as many other prefectures have had their events terminated due to economy blues.

Neither did the local organizers stinge on the crackers, and the recent new works ( 新作 ) were truly one of a kind. WOW!

Unlike my usual self, I rested my camera for the most of the evening to relish the show. Honestly, I didn't expect us to turn up for the fireworks display this year, so it all felt extra special, or even priviledged... Anyway, here's sharing the very few pictures of the night.






A splendid evening it was though it must have been 15 degrees or so. We were smart to be prepared with some warm clothing. You should see how the others, kids and elderly alike, dressed in their cooling summer outfit, some sleeveless, and I couldn't help feel bad. But I guess the exhileration of watching the glorious combusts must have warmed many from within, for everyone stayed to the end of the show.


Prelude to the fireworks, everybody wowed and watched the beautiful full moon raising from behind the mountains, illuminating the waters and excited faces. For the first time, I was admiring the full moon with full appreciation and , hmm... for a moment, I thought having some mooncakes at hand would have made everything perfect. =P

Nevertheless, it was a beautiful Summer night to remember. =)

Zzz... Gimme my drums!

Gotta settle a mail, so I made a trip to the post office yesterday.

There weren't any other in the line besides myself, but it took some 15 minutes to get attended to.


I swear I'll bring my drum set next time.
