What kind of Singaporean you are?


Source: It’s My Turn

Do you know what kind of Singaporean you are? If you don’t, try this quiz to find out. If you do, try it as well to see if you are right!

question1I tried the quiz and the first question I got was “When I talk” aka how I talk! Being a true blue Singaporean, I chose Option One – rojak of English, Mandarin, Malay, Tamil and Singlish!

Then, there were questions on National Service and Singapore’s delicacy and so on…


And guess what, my result is: PATRIOTIC ONLY ON NATIONAL DAY SINGAPOREAN!!!! I was expecting to be TRUE BLUE, seems like I need to work harder on my Singapore Spirit!

Give the quiz a try and see what kind of Singapore you are!

Mr ACTIVE @ Everest Base Camp

Trekking up to the Everest Base Camp (EBC) is no easy task. One has to be physically fit and mentally strong to conquer all the challenges that come along the way.

Look! That looked like Mr ACTIVE!!!

Nothing is impossible for Mr ACTIVE! Taking one step at a time and hanging on till the end, Mr ACTIVE also reached EBC!


The trek up to EBC is definitely something that I am proud to do. I made the right decision to go.


Some of us fell sick along the way up and guess what saved the day? Tiger Balm!!! And we didn’t have to worry if we ran out of Tiger Balm because at more than 3000m above sea level, the shops do sell Tiger Balm!!!


It was definitely a surprise for me to see Tiger Balm high up in the mountains. For those who were uncomfortable, Tiger Balm made them better and we were in time to enjoy the wonderful scenery!


EW Barker Race 2012


Last Friday, we stayed in school for the annual EW Barker Race. It is a 4 x 600m relay run around the NIE Triangle. Did we win? Is that important? Well, what was really important was that we represented Class 3B and we had fun!

New prices for McChicken and Double Cheeseburger


Source: McDonald’s Singapore

$2 for a McChicken burger or a Double Cheeseburger is something of the past. Ever since McDonald’s extended the promotion for the Extra Value Meals to the whole day, prices for McChicken burger and Double Cheeseburger had gone up too at $3 plus.

Some how we are made to believe that the Extra Value Meals are really value for money and it will be better to buy a meal rather than a burger. I will definitely miss the day when I popped in and grab a $2 Double Cheeseburger just because I felt like it.
