"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

I was forced to watch a CD with MTV videos downloaded from the Internet sometimes this week. Kylie Minogue was prancing around the screen, baring flesh tastelessly. I don't know why people always think that the more flesh you reveal, the better. If you want to show flesh, please do it more tastefully next time instead of just relying on your body and your sickly sweet voice reminiscent of the odour of putrefying flesh to attract attention! Tangentially, I suspect that male strippers have better technique than female strippers.

After the MTV was Enemy at the Gates. It's interesting how the woman had money for lipstick in wartime, and how all the Soviets had American accents.

Someone left a F&N Fizzkidz notebook, with a trivia quiz inside, in the dispensary. Now, if the Fizzkidz are all kids, why does the sole female have disproportionately big breasts? Weird. And there doesn't seem to be minority racial representation inside either. Too bad for political correctness :)

My Pilot G2 07 got stolen at Tengah Medical Centre while I was accompanying 2 patients there one night. One medic asked to borrow it and didn't return it to me. Gah. I had that pen since the good old RJC days and it has accompanied me through BMT and SMM! Grr.

Support Company has a Unisex toilet ala Ally McBeal. Heh. Open minded CSM.

I wonder which drill command sounds funnier - Panji Panji / Punji Punji or Masek Masek? I haven't decided :)

Someone suggested calling the Pseudo-Western food that SAF Cookhouses give us "Fusion" food. LOL.

There was this show on Channel 8 where lithe women were bouncing on big air filled balls and smiling. Exercise fads are very weird.

The most popular brand of bath gel in my unit seems to be Shokubutsu. It is advertised, on the bottle, as having 99% of its active ingredients coming from plants. One wonders about the 1% that doesn't come from plants, and about the passive ingredients. Bad marketing, but at least they're honest.

Most of us call Jason, Jason Toh Ah Beng, for he has some Beng tendencies, but compared to real bengs, he really cannot measure up :) (This is meant as a compliment)

My white hair is growing in quantity and becoming more and more visible. Oh dear.

Effeminate males, ceteris paribus, tend to be nicer than more masculine ones.

They always like to use the Imperial March from Star Wars during SAF parades. I bet they don't have any permission from Mr Lucas, but he probably won't care to take on the SAF in court. Any local court would probably throw the case out anyway, though with his clout, he *might* be able to lobby the US Armed Forces to pull some strings. Anyhow, the Imperial March is the theme of the bad guys. Probably a Freudian slip on the part of parade planners.

Melvin has been picking up many of Boon Huat's bad qualities, rather one major one - irritating people. Tut tut. Kiong and I must scold him more!


Quotes:

[On 'Letter to a Son'] I read it before... Read it on your website. Very funny what, your website. Especially the referrals. You mean people actually search for... [Me: Yes]

[On my Strawberry and Red Berries exfoliating body scrub] Kanna. Tastes like fruit punch. (smells)

[Me: Do you think he looks like Gollum?] Gay boy. Gay boy cum Porn Man. [Me: Why is he 'gay boy'?] He keeps trying to fondle me.

[On a whiteboard in the Treatment Room] Quote of the day:
13/01/03
The unexamined life is not worth living - Socrates
Life w/o sex is not worth living - ALLAN TAN

Why you got so many condoms in your cupboard? Got something wrong with you? [Me: They were there when I moved in]... When do they expire? Don't waste. Give me, I go and cheong. (do you have, Is there, waste them, and I'll)

[To me] A lot of people decided not to keep diaries, because of what happened to you, except that it was in a diary format (have decided, what happened to your weblog happened to their paper diaries)

[Sign in food court] no pork, no lard, cater for all 'races' (people who don't eat pork, but not vegetarians or people who don't eat certain types of meats other than pork)


Actually Letter to a Son' goes rather out of point towards the middle. The writer would fail his GP. I'm not vehemently anti-PAP, and the writer does start to rave incoherently towards the end, but much of the 'letter', especially the first part, *are* true :) I think it's meant to be a spoof of the "letter" that was in "Shoulder To Shoulder - Our National Service Journal".

He Who Must Not Be Named was not pleased by my attempt to bring some closure to our exhausting debate. My main gripe with his arguments really, were that he had many creative (to put it charitably) interpretations of various written creeds and dismissed offhand documentary evidence laying out specific mantras and doctrines to be followed. And his argumentation technique seems to involve wearing people out by carpet bombing till they give up. And since he will probably read this, there is no need to ICQ it to him.

I seem to be getting at least one search referral saying "gabriel seah" per day. My infamy preceds me indeed. Beloved where e'er I go, indeed. *cough*
