A Boy and His Voice

Surprise Travel

Sunday, August 31, 2008

I had a surprise when I woke up this morning, I was told that I needed to travel.

I found out that my Grandma in Malaysia had passed on and as such, I would not be in Singapore for a couple of days. How many days I'm still not too sure. I'll still be reachable via my mobile. Internet... a bit hard la.

I'll be away, don't miss me, be safe.

Thoughts from holiday

Friday, August 15, 2008

I'm back from my company trip to Bohol-Cebu. I realised that the people there are really poor... with squatters sprouting out from many parts of the city. I also managed to visit a church (Living the Gospel) that helps out poor children by providing them with school essentials and stuff - I'm glad that I was able to help and put a smile on their faces (details to be posted soon).

The thing is, some of these people (those I passed while I was in the coach, the kids, etc.) seemed contented with what they have. Seemed being the keyword. I guess I would never know unless I really speak to them. That brings me to a thought...

If you don't know what's outside your world, you would not think of pursuing (hence to a certain extent, feel contented), but if you do; you would never be satisfied.

I guess to some, ignorance is indeed bliss.

IF it were you, would you choose to know?

This piece of news just came in.

Mr. Harry Tan has passed away. Rest in peace Mr. Harry Tan. I'll not forget how you let us watch the repeated telecast of the World Cup Finals in the morning, and how you asked a parent to cane his own child harder. Most importantly, even though you never taught me and I never spoke to you (extensively) before, I'll not forget your fierce dedication to the school.

Once a Saint, Always a Saint. You will always be remembered.

Details of the wake:
Mount Vernon Parlor 1 from 06 Aug 2008.
Update: The wake will end on Saturday 09 Aug 2008.

Note: for those going tonight (06 Aug 2008), please go after 8pm.

Ad Bloopers

Tuesday, August 05, 2008

I realised that I haven't been blogging about ads for a while and I'll like to start. Small problem though... I don't have anything clever to say. So I thought... why say anything? I'll let the pictures do the talking.

I know I have an amazing readership of about... 5. So yeah, what do I have to lose? I'm going to try to post on a weekly basis, some form of Ad Bloopers. In other words, ads that got screwed up but still got printed. It could be a spelling error, a bad lasso job or whatever. I thought I'll just post it up and have some fun. =D So, my faithful readers of 5... if you come across any ad bloopers, snap a pic, send it to me via email or mms and I'll post it up.

For the very first Ad Blooper, who better to kick-start it by the company that threatens to take over the world. No, not Microsoft, Apple!

See if you can spot the mistake. Have fun! Oh, and don't forget to send me any ad bloopers you see. :)
