My Father’s Hands

A son asked his father, ‘Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?’.
The father who, despite having a heart condition, says ‘Yes’.
They went on to complete the marathon together.

Father and son went on to join other marathons, the father always saying
‘Yes’ to his son’s request of going through the race together. One day, the
son asked his father, ‘Dad, let’s join the Ironman together.’ To which,
his father said ‘Yes’ too.

For those who don’t know, Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever.
The race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile (3.86 kilometer) ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometer) bike ride, and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometer) marathon along the coast of the Big Island.

Father and son went on to complete the race together.

The Ping.Sg Highway goes on

Normally I refrain from commenting on disputes or scandals happening on the local blogosphere.

Coz I always believe that’s more to what we read than meets the eye and I’d rather not make a judgement in case I might not have the complete picture.

And also coz I’m usually too busy to find out all the ins and outs of the community and attend a lot of the events – especially with my being on the road since April till 2 weeks back.

But having said all that, do allow me to share a little bit of my humble thoughts on Ping.Sg, what I consider as the local highway for bloggers.

I have observed that Continue reading

Talking about cute babes

You know, since my posts on cute babes have been extremely popular, I decided to go for a part III 🙂

I’ve talked about squirrels and my favorite doggie, how about some really really cute babes whom I’ve had the chance to meet as through blogging as fellow co-sojourners?

Sometime back, a friend and I talking about the local blogging scene noted that most of the posts that struck us or posts that our topics revolved around came from one blogger, a very cute one for that matter :

Yes, Meet Qiaoyun a.k.a. Sheylara. WARNING : DON’T go to her blog. I repeat, DON’T go to her blog.

You end up laughing yourself silly and totally hooked to it.

Which explains why she’s been nominated as one of the most entertaining blogs in Singapore.

Go Go vote for her, just requires a simple email and password and you can vote daily!

While you are at it, look out for the Best Blog Shop by another cute babe whom I’m never met in person.

She’s so cute and sexy she has stayed elusive from the public eye so this may be the best picture we have of her :

The sexy maths tutor Celine Loi of 五大超级补习天王天后 (lit. The Five Heavenly Super Tutors) fame

Go vote for her under the Best Blog Shop category!

Celine has put together a dummy’s guide to voting for her here.

For the rest of you wondering what I’ve been up to, I’m on a new religion and playing tonnes of basketball.
