"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”"

"Writing is the only profession where no one considers you ridiculous if you earn no money." - Jules Renard

Orchard Road on the first day of Chinese New Year was pretty much the same as on the second day last year (and certainly the second day this year, i.e. today), complete with cars speeding down the (relatively) deserted streets, i.e. more crowded than continental European cities on a Sunday.

Some Japanese teens didn't seem very happy, probably because they were conned by this sign outside Wisma Atria:


"Business as usual for the Chinese New Year on 26 & 27 January 09"


What Business as usual in Wisma Atria means


One of the few ice cream men selling ice cream - with a surcharge


The rare disfigured ad, on boarding outside Mandarin


And despite the 5 megapixels, autofocus and Carl Zeiss lens, my Nokia 6220 Classic is still inferior to a real camera. I should've used my real one (in my bag, but I was lazy and wanted to test my phone). Meh.
