bringing twiggy alone to the vet was alright. but she puked when i stopped the car. guess it's motion sickness since i used the pet taxi crate instead of her royal purple baggie. twiggs growled at other dogs at the vet at bukit purmei. vet's a young chap n the recept's a saucy eloquent lady.
i told myself to check my storage if i still have one toothbrush spare, i'm real stingy when it comes to food n necessities. n truly, after getting buy3get2free generic oralBs, i found i have one superior one waiting at home for me. gave one toothbrush to my dad as inteneded, n i'm gonna choose red for my current brush. i love red, like cherry F&N, taste sweet.
got my $4 voucher from gamescore for they have altered the price for Lost Planet. collected my art book that came in different shipping as the game. n EDGE .... buying magazines again ???
a swift wind blew n now i'm hunting for a psp game .... might target rideg racer 2 or killzone liberation.
oh my xmas gift from my wife which i have not taken a pic of. gonna fill the cup with fizzies after dinner.

my front lip was done by him quite awhile back, got busted at the carpark of a hotel, n got it patched by old friend hwee boon, whom now takes charge of his father's car paint spray n repair workshop at sin min. it's nice to have him as an alliance, on car accident matters n such. i have avoided driving near his workshop, because many times it became a bad omen to visit him soon after. at least 3 occasions i remembered.
i've added a muffler tip i bought from autobacs this evening. feel strange without a exhaust tip.
my wife smsed me this afternoon, informing me she'll be extending another day stay at PJ KL. looks like i gotta bring twiggy to the vet alone 2mrw at PAWS. she'll be getting her 3rd vaccination. she's 4mths old now.
with my wife away i took a chance to hang out with my 2 nephews, don n emmanuel, took them for a short drive around the neighbourhood. and too, time to catch up with some gaming. my 5hrs sleep isnt helping, but my mind seems at ease 2nite. yep i do missed my wife .... hope we'll spend some quality time over xmas dinner. my devil tattoo on my right chest. i've got 4 tatts so far, would like to have a star tattoo someday.

i've lost my smile. happiness are short pulses that subside in hours [my tension headaches last longer than happiness, ironically]. pain and suffering will live with us til our last breath; i consoled my mother, so why worry, but i just cant get this idealogy into my head. the king of pain is no king if i cant endure. quest n quests continuously challenged me, for i was once self-pronouced strong has gone weak for many years.
there is no hiding at work. i failed to find a spot i could sit to rest my disturbed mind. i resort to "getting busy" to bury the worry. i did suceed in not throwing my phone or kickin a steel plate o vent my frustration.
i was born weak and i grew up worrying the slightest. God pampered me with little failure as i was brought up.
time to change .... when i am complete, i will tackle all pain that comes head on. if i pray hard, God will be there.

collected my SW kubricks series7 from Falcon's Hangar earlier and located a classic Iron Man at Toyquest.
sarah machaclan dvd+cd and Hot Stuff. wonder when this car mod zine will take the ladies off the cover?
i left the Shell Petrol Kiosk at Bukit Timah Road and while i made a turn towards Lornie Road a big black Lexus MPV flash his high beam on me protesting me of being slow. i decided to slow down while the driver continued to harrass, tailgate and flashing his lamps. instead of speeding up i put on my hazard lights and he had distance off. looks like i found a way to keep these normal pple away from a psycho like me. i finally filtered off to my exit and left him far behind wondering, was it not my day he asked?
technically F.E.A.R is my first FPS on 360. my 17th game on 360.
my flats are being constructed in a steady pace. the highest building now stands at 16floors.

my hd dvd addon drive for the 360 finally arrived after a month's wait. this is a japanese version. and here's my viva pinata faceplate that i am entitled with the purchase of the limited edtion of the game. the faceplate came only yesterday while i got the game earlier. and of course, i cant resist superman returns the videogame, tho i'm not much of a DC comics fan, this game is pretty cute.
as my instruction sheets were in japanese, i was pretty worried if the HD DVD would match my local 360. i ran thru some video guide on the net b4 hooking it on.
the set comes with it's own power supply, a usb cable to hook the player to the usb port of your 360, a jap universal remote, and a installation disc. i plugged the power, hook up the 2 via usb, and power up both equipment. only when i insert a HD Dvd disc i was prompt to update the player. the update was done over with xbox live so the disc was meant for customers whom were not live enabled.
i tried 3 of my disc, and watched House of Wax for the nite, perhaps not as crisp, cos this movie was done in 2005, i'm sure MI3 and Batman Begins would appear awesome. sounds was as reported as i dont have a HDMI connection, i needed to tune up for a louder bomb. overall, the experience made me complete.

my new pass pink holder MIJ, playstation official and WIRED. gonna start follwing WIRED as my regular zine. 's time i grow up. knowing that i'm getting alittle bonus extra, i brought my wife to kinokuniya taka for alittle shopping and omu rice.
me and couple of colleagues decided to meet up at T1 canteen for breakfast after our nite duty, and then to change our airport pass for the new biometric upgraded version. me, NCL n HT were quick and we arrived the pass office at 830am, so we were told "we're not opened yet". smartly me and HT proceed to RMG to get our annual audiogram done. when we returned, there was like hundreds of low-lifes in the queue.
if i could have waited at the pass office door at 0830am, the 3 of us could be number 123. we could have finished at 10am perhaps. there was a nice high post officer who did came from the back door for a quick route, but he was understanding enuff to speak with us, listen to our frustrastion, talked to the fool department of what's going wrong. he also gave us a go ahead to go infront of him, but we kindly rejected his kind offers. unlike some VIPs, who cant get his shoulders straight, had took 6 pictures so he wont look stupid in his airport pass. ultimatley got booed off by the whole room of impatients.
i deserve a new airport pass holder after losing sleep. HT had sacrificed his dogs' hunger to wait in the queue. one manager of ours had to leave the queue after stayed for 3hrs cos he gotta go to work by 1pm.
word of advice for changing your airport pass? come after your nite duty or off day, u are bound to wait.

first point was the CCK columbarium. my aunt, whom i have never seen before and died at 4, my great grandfather (founder of Ai Tong Primary School) and my granddad, were dugged out and urned up and remembered here.
then it was the CCK infamous cross junction cemetery, where my grandmother that passed on in april 1991 was buried.
my wife and i used to go cemetery visits in the past. the peace here is what u'll never find in the urban singapore life.
and as usual, my dad and i argued on which is the best route back home.
managed to collect my GoW at 2230hrs at Funan 2nite. i only got to know the game was officially out 2day at 2145hrs. thx to jaclyn of gamescore who called me at 2210hrs when i was about to leave my in-laws place, that gamescore will wait for me if i can make it 2nite. amazing
my terrapins will get their fave food when they finished their little prawnies.
