if sky is clear..you will see forever

If sky is clear, you will see forever. That’s the tagline for Ion Sky, newly opened observation “deck” for public visits.

It’s 55 storey high and it’s the highest point in Orchard area. Admission is SGD16 per person and it’s free if you were to dine at its restaurant (but you do need to make advance booking, which is like 2 weeks prior)

It was quite alright as we had the whole place to ourselves (it has to do with the SGD16, I reckon). It was a clear day and I looked for forever and I think I saw straits of Johor. If you ask me, I would however prefer Hong Kong’s Victoria peak on any clear day.

Still, we saw forever on that very day.

celeste is getting camera shy?

Is Celeste getting camera shy, of late or is she just giving me a hard time?

Lately, when I try to snap a picture of her, she refused to “act” normal in front of the camera phone. Then again, she is acting like kids her age, I guess.

one of the better chicken rice?

My sister took us (myself, Celeste and my parents) to one chicken rice shop along Killeney road (directly opposite Singtel?) and I wasn’t disappointed at all.

It’s one of the better chicken rice shop around, as I was told. I have to agree as the chicken rice tasted much better that those serve at one of the 5 star hotel along Orchard road.

If you ask me what makes a good chicken rice, its rice has to be fluffy and fragrant (cook with chicken fat) and chicken meat is still slightly pinkish.  And I guess what makes the  whole world of difference is its “must have” condiment;

CHILLI SAUCE. It has to be sour and tangy and packs a punch.

I am pretty sure there are chicken rice stalls which are much better out there waiting to be discovered. 

Care to share, anyone?

coitus interruptus? what’s that?

Right after my post about stuff found under the beds, an ex male colleague of mine asked me what the heck is “coitus interruptus”?

It’s basically a love-making method where the guy will withdraw his banger” right before volcanic eruption.

I am sure he’s gonna ask how does a guy know when to withdraw his “banger”? You see, right before the volcanic eruption, there will always be “seismic activities” to look out for. As I mentioned before, the guy’s will-power is paramount to prevent over-spilling of volcanic lava.

What’s a banger then?

Ever heard of bangers and mash”?

It’s sausages and mash potatoes! That’s what they call in the UK.

Astro boy…YESSSSS

I am really esctatic when I read the paper quite recently and got to know there will be a movie version of Astro boy!! Hooray!! Why?

Ah Boy loves Astro boy!!

I used to glue myself in front of the black and white idiotbox to watch Astro boy in the 70’s. It was really my real favourite cartoon character.

Astro Boy is a cartoon series set in a futuristic world wherein androids co-exist with humans. Its focus is on the adventures of the titular “Asto boy”, a powerful boy robot created by the head of the Ministry of Science, Dr Tenma, to replace his son Tobio, who died in a car accident.

Dr. Tenma built Astro in Tobio’s image and treated him as lovingly as if he were the real Tobio, but soon realized that the little android could not fill the void of his lost son.Tenma rejected Astro and sold him to a cruel circus owner, Hamegg.

After some time, the new head of the Ministry of Science, noticed Astro Boy performing in the circus and convinced Hamegg to turn Astro over to him. He then took Astro as his own and treated him gently and warmly, becoming his guardian.

He soon realized that Astro was gifted with superior powers and skills, as well as the ability to experience human emotions.

Astro then is shown fighting crime, evil, and injustice. Most of his enemies were robot-hating humans, robots gone berserk, or alien invaders

Cant wait. cant wait.
