"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”"

Observations - 12th September 2011

"An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field." - Niels Bohr


Formspring question: Is science compatible with religion?
Me: Their compatibility is like deep-fried ice cream - you need elaborate manoeuvres, it doesn't last very long on its own and the taste is questionable.

Wondering if taking pics of ugly people and telling them it's for a blog featuring pretty people would work

If you complain government sites are stuck at IE6, don't complain when they spend taxpayer money upgrading them.

"i wish i put in more effort as a student :(... i took grades too seriously and missed out on a lot of learning in the process"

"Why is that the law cant care less when a man is beaten up silly ("Non-seizable offence"?) but unleashes it's full wrath when a man pinches the buttock of a woman?"

It seems everyone who takes time off to travel the world spends most of their time in developing countries - because otherwise they wouldn't be able to afford it

“Lenin wrote: ‘We will support Henderson as a rope supports a man who is hanged.’ It is curious how Communists used outrageous phrases publicly and were indignant when these phrases were turned against them.” (English History 1914-1945) --- A.J.P. Taylor

When someone answers "How are you?" with "Not bad", "Not bad" means bad .

Apparently using the word "lame" (as in "that's so lame") now constitutes ableism. That's dumb.

If you fly AirAsia, you must now pay a S$5 fee if you check in at the airport counter. AirAsia is becoming like Ryanair.

I am told that Malaysians are like Singaporeans in looking to government for the solution, i.e. "the government should..."

"NE has had strange effects on students. most of them will say that it is propaganda and resist it, yet they seem to have internalized the lessons in social studies--in short, adopting national values does not lead to being nationalistic. the other day some students were saying that welfare is a bad idea, because of the way the UK's system is failing and that we shouldn't help the poor because they're lazy (the UK example was from the SS syllabus). but when i asked them if they knew about countries where welfare is more viable or how it could be implemented more discriminately they hadn't thought about it."

"Today, my friend and I gave our numbers to some guys at a bar. Twenty minutes after we had left, we got a call. We excitedly answered the phone, only to hear the guy ask, "So are you the fat one or the ugly one?" FML"

RT @edchng: "don't let your writing be so obfuscating and claim your impenetrability is your point"

"I was happy to doubt everything. Until the death of my friend forced me to acknowledge the reality of life"

RT @Fake_PMLee Let me remind the Tans, that no matter what you say, the Lees are in charge. #SGPresident

RT @chewlink: I'm not sure what it says about our politics that it now becomes necessary to overtly say "Singaporeans first"

RT @PrettyAndieRock: Les filles intelligentes ouvrent leurs esprits, les filles faciles ouvrent leurs jambes et les filles naïves ouvrent leurs coeurs.

RT @lactualaloupe: Hommes : ne soyez jamais faibles, émus, fainéants, effrayé ou découragé. c’est pas viril.

RT @Isaamia: Avoir un orgasme, c'est comme laver ma voiture, je peux le faire moi même, mais c'est tellement plus agréable qd un homme le fait pour moi..
