Saddest Blog entry ever ...

"God, please protect uncle in heaven..." exclaimed J and G's 5 yr old cousin. J and G are equally young as well, J being 6 yr old and G, 7. Their father, D, collasped yesterday and their life changed since then.

D was a salesperson and on 9th Feb, he was suppose to represent his company for a dinner. An expensive dinner to be exact, it costs $1600 for a person to enjoy the dishes which includes things like abalone and shark fin. Before dinner, D went back home to take a shower. In the afternoon, J & G were in school and only their mother, M, was at home. So D headed for the washroom to freshen himself.

All of a sudden, M heard a loud "thud". It came from the toilet. She rushed there and knocked hard at the door.

"D, are you okay ?? "

There was no reply.

She shouted and banged on the door.

But there was just no reply.

She began to worry for D. Using her strength, she tried to force open the door. It was hard as she ain't a strong woman. Then when she finally managed to force open a gap, she squeezed herself in. And there she saw D lying on the ground. Motionless. His face has turned purple. She shaked D's body but, there was no reply.

She then rushed out to call 995. But some how, the line was engaged and nobody answered her call. She tried a few more times but she just couldn't get thru. Remembering there is a clinic at level one, she got her keys and ran for the lift.

Upon reaching the lift, she fell to the ground. All of a sudden, her legs gave way and she got to crawl into the lift. She was too shock by what has happened to D. As the lift reached level one, she managed to walk that few steps and shouted her way into the clinic.

Her screamings caught everybody's attention and the doctor (from the clinic) came out and listened to her. He then went up with her. But it was too late.

At the hospital, D was officially proclaimed dead.

J & G and their drawings of D

The above is a rough description of what happened. It was also feature in today's Shin Min. I was at D's wake just now and i heard it from L(J & G 's auntie). J & G were running and laughing around. It seems that they don't really know what has happened to their father.

It was sad to witness something like this. Imagine losing either one of the parent at such a young age, i will feel terrible.

All of a sudden, the family burden fell onto M ; who always rely on D to bring home the income and settle the bills. What can she do now ?

Recently, there are many cases of people dying in their sleep, during a run, etc. These people dead all of a sudden, even in those who exercised regularly. What is wrong ah ? I don't know the cause but it definitely requires lots of attention and investigation.

SUBWAY 10th Anniversary Promotion

Woo hoo ~~ Subway is having promo for this period. Such a pity that i only found out recently, but late is better than never mah. At least i still have a chance to grab some of the mouth watering offers... Yummy...

Subway sandwiches are very easy to make but it is very troublesome to prepare the materials needed - need to cut the tomatoes, the veggies, get the ham and stuffs... For people like me and most of you, we will just pay and get the products. Save time and trouble. Seriously, i wonder what other thing we will pay and let others do in the future. If i know of it, i will definitely open a shop to offer that kind of service !!

More information @ SUBWAY, EAT FRESH

Spore WON and Diya LOST

Woo hoo... after the uneventful match on last Wednesday, on 4th Feb 2007 Singapore has managed to beat the Thais and defended the trophy !!

I don't watch a lot of soccer but i think this is one match that is worth watching because, "We are Spore, We are Spore..." Although, i must say the standard of the asean countries still have plenty of rooms to improve, they tried their best.

The Thais were very aggressive and they were determined not to let the Lions have an easy time. Quite obviously, the Spore team was struggling to fight back and luckily they managed to do so.

"Ole, ole ole ole ~~, Ole~~, Ole~~~"

MAny cheers to the Sporeans who made their way to Thailand to support our players !! Despite of the "danger", they still went, power sia !!


I was switching between Ch U and 5. Two competitions in a row. It wasn't that hard as PSS2 was not exciting at all. Although the performance is better, the "Superstar" factor is missing. Not that i am agreeing that Tan WeiLian is a superstar but at least his vocal is good and Kelly has the X-factor. Nope, don't see it this time round.

Plus, i have predicted Darren Tan to be the winner and indeed he managed to clinch the title. With his huge support base, they can call and call and sms and sms, donating to Mediacorp.

Seriously, i think ppl on this isle is getting sick of the "vote for me by calling XXXX..." competitions. Give us something else please !!
