Off to Japan, Kyushu

In another 5 hours, i will be flying off to Kyushu, Japan. I am not feeling eager or in anticipation, Kyushu is not the most exciting nor the most scenic place in Japan. Its a business trip, not holiday so that will explains why i am not looking forward to it.

Nonetheless, i planned to make the most out of this trip, work-wise and personally. I have no idea how long i planned to stay at this company, since over the past few days, i see a ugly side of many colleagues (including my two bosses) and think that i really want to move on. Two years in this place is considered too long. Fuck the Lehmann Bros for this economic depression.

So, as i try to enjoy myself for this trip, i also hope to bring back many photos. As long as i don’t fall sick while i am there, haven’t really recovered from the flu and sore throat.

See you all in one week.


Fuck terrorism

The impact of deadly terrorism attacks like 911 probably did not hit on us Singaporeans as much as the death of Ms Lo Hwei Yen. She is very unfortunately our nation’s first ever victim in a terrorist attack.

I felt the hurt, maybe because she is about the same age as me. I felt the anger when those fucking terrorists won’t even spare an unarmed innocent woman who could never have helped them achieve their aim, whatever it is. Killing innocent people can never be justifiable, and i simply cannot understand what is the fucking religion or beliefs that propelled these young men into the carnage we see on papers and TVs.

Rest in peace, Ms Lo Hwei Yen. I believed you will be badly missed by your loved ones and many fellow Singaporeans like me.

As for those fucking terrorists who happened to die for their so-called cause, may you all rot in eternal hell.

AFA 08

For the first time, this is the anime exhibition that is held outside Japan. 33.3% managed to get me a free ticket and i was looking forward to it even though i don’t know what to expect.

I brought along my camera, having just 2 hours earlier added a Hoya UV filter for it. Supposed to help reduce glare (not noticeable at all) but mainly serve as a first protection for the more expensive lense. Cost me $20 from MS color @ AMK hub.

I was quite surprised to see that the crowd was not sparse. In fact, it was pretty crowded. Cosplayers can be seen walking around (i followed one Kakashi to the hall) and its a good sign that we are catching up on the daringness as compared to Japanese.

Enuff of talking. Here are some of the pictures i took. Was quite disappointed, thought they turn out well when i saw them on the camera. On the screen, KNS.

Argh!!!! Patlabor models tat i have never seen before! And they are not on sale! Argh!!!!

Was very sian when i saw this pic on the screen. Can’t seem to get the focusing right for objects behind glass.

Shana look very cute, pity about the anime though.

After this, we went to the mini concert by May’N who sang most of the theme songs for Macross Frontier. The crowd in front of the stage was fantastic.

May’N hasn’t come on stage yet, but the crowd was cheering and yelling at every possible indication that she is coming. I expected the crowded to be more subdued, after all, 宅男 are not known for expressing themselves.

I must say that the live performance is very impressive. Her vocals are powerful and she did a very good job of bringing the audience alive.

May’N mini concert brought an end to the whole anime festival. This maybe msh less impressive than what Japan has, but i am very glad to have attend this one and surely lookig forward to the next one at 2009.

Lastly, to 33.3%, the vid i took got sound de ok?

Top 10 dangerous dog breeds

Check out this list. I cannot believe it when Chow Chow is actually one of them.

Its my turn now~

I can often remember when i young, i caused a lot of anguish to my parents. Its probably my turn to feel the way they felt now.

My dad, as you may know, is not that old at sixty but due to the illness he is suffering, can be a bit slow on movements and speech. His thinking, until about one hour ago, i assumed was still alert and clear-minded.

My dad has this wart/corn on his left feet. Its been bothering him for a year plus and despite my repeated attempts and persuasions to get him to see the family doc, he stubornly refused. Until about 3 weeks ago, he applied some cement paste on his feet, thinking that its gonna help. Yeah rite, the wart/corn or watever went worse and got infected. The wound got covered in pus and the whole feet swelled and in the end, he asked us to take him to see a doctor. Not just any doctor, but this one clinic 5 min down the street. Apparently, he trust this doc very much.

So for last week, my sis and i brought him to see the doc. Because he couldn’t walk, i had to drive him there. We would see the doctor together with him since he has trouble expressing himself. For three days, we repeated that routine. I did so even though i was pretty upset that all this wouldn’t have happened if he had heed my advice much earlier. Why i am going through this fuck shit because of my dad’s stubbornness?

The doc instructed my dad to keep the wound dry and take the anti-biotics on time. I had to change the dressing for him everyday too.

So about an hour ago, i reached home and saw that my dad did not cover up the dressing when he bathed. When i asked him, he said that since the dressing is going to be changed everyday, it can afford to get wet. I just simply had to give up. I controlled my tone and explained that keeping the wound dry is critical to any healing, its not about the dressing. And after he bathed, he wrapped his feet in a plastic bag, thereby trapping the moisture in. These effectively wiped out my efforts and time and money. Had this person being someone else and not my dad, I will very likely rub some salt onto the wound literally.

I can almost imagined my parents feeling similar anguish when i was young and reckless. Now its my turn. Pls, treat your parents well, while they are still healthy. It will not remain pretty forever.
