Words of Wisdom IV

1. Clumsy? Avoid cutting yourself while slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold them while you chop away.
2. Avoid all arguments about lifting the toilet simply by using the sink.
3. If you have a bad cough, take many laxatives, then you will be afraid to cough.

Road Trip

I'm off to Melaka to visit my mother's family. Ironically, while I'll be surviving for three days without internet, I have all the sports cable I can watch there. If you need to contact me urgently, call or SMS my dad's mobile at 94501613. See you on Sunday!

Week 15 Review: Fantasy Football

Well done all!

Week 15 has just passed.

Aaron (1244 pts) consolidates 1st place with the joint-3rd highest Week 15 score of 90.5 pts, thanks to Liverpool duo Fernando Morientes and Jose Manuel Reina.

The gap is now 143.5 pts as Chongkiat (1100.5 pts) slips in 2nd place with 76 pts, no thanks to the limited playing time of Jermaine Defoe, Luis Garcia and Steven Taylor.

Benedict (1088 pts) consolidates 3rd place with the 2nd highest Week 15 score of 94 pts, 12.5 points behind Chongkiat.

Amos (901.5 pts) consolidates 10th place with the joint-3rd highest Week 15 score of 90.5 pts.

Jasmine (829 pts) rises three places to 7th, just 4.5 points ahead of Benedict (927 pts) with the highest Week 15 score of 102.5 pts, thanks to Reina, Dean Whitehead and Djibril Cisse. SHe's been top scorer for the3 last two weeks now.

At the other end, there's nothing too fantastic about Benedict (721.5 pts) with the worst Week 15 score of 26 pts.

See you next week!

Charlie Torzen in Aeon Flux

Jasmine says: "I have tickets to the movie you want to watch the Charlie Torzen one."
Yes, that would be Aeon Flux.

Generous people shouldn't ask questions

If you give money to the poor, they call you a saint; if you ask why the poor have no money, they call you a communist.

Fantasy Football Week 15

Darius Vassell
Couldn't penetrate a compact Blackburn side.

Fernando Morientes
You win some you lose some. Morientes goalscoring display was the beneficiary of luis Garcia's early injury.

Ahmed Mido
Scored early and was a thorn in the Hammers' side throughout.

Henri Camara
The Gunners are never great defensively, and Cygan and Campbell were always going to be exposed for pace by the quicksilver Camara. This was a gut feel.

Luis Garcia
Was in good form for Spain midweek, but got injured early.

Steven Gerrard
Low-profile game from the skipper.

Belezoglu Emre
If I had known Owen was out, I would've left Emre out as well.

Sun Jihai
Played in midfield and got the clean sheet.

Lee Young Pyo
Was 1 minute away from a clean sheet and 4 points when Ferdinand struck.

Wes Brown
Unlucky to get booked.

Jose Manuel Reina
Could be in my team for a while. Problem is, so will many other teams.

Words of Wisdom III

1. The severity of the itch is proportional to the inability to reach it.
2. The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.
3. A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad momory.
4. A fool and his money are soon partying.
5. It was recently discovered that research causes cancer in rats.
6. Success always occurs in private, failure in full view.

I like No. 2. In which case Manchester United have all the time in the world to reel in Chelsea. Those cancerous rats. Abramovich and his money are partying for now, but you'll see.

Men at Work

Who can it be now?

It's me back at work and with a 25% raise! Earning $60/day now; $100 if I work full OT. But I can't with Food Fiesta coming up, even if I want to.

Monday, November 14, 2005

Literati, Minesweeper etc.

This is an open challenge to All:

Challenge me to Literati and Miesweeper when you see me on MSN!

Saturday, November 12, 2005


I'm now officially jobless, one of 3.3% of Singaporeans. Despite my best efforts, the company was never going to keep me beyond three weeks since the event is next week. Telemarketing needs some lead time; one week is just about right. I left on excellent terms and told them to give me a call if they need me. I earned $588 over three weeks and 12 working days including two skipped lunches, which is about $196 weekly and $49 daily.

I really think NSFs are undercompensated.

Week 13 Review: Fantasy Football

Well done all!

Week 13 has just passed.

Aaron (1153.5 pts) clings on to 1st place with 92.5 pts, no thanks to Claus Jensen and Robert Pires.

The gap is now 129 pts as Chongkiat (1024.5 pts) consolidates 2nd place with the 2nd highest Week 13 score of 94.5 pts, thanks to Belezoglu Emre and Pascal Chimbonda.

Benedict (994 pts) consolidates 3rd place with 68 pts, 8.5 points ahead of Gareth.

Lianbin (772 pts) consolidates 14th place with the 2nd highest Week 13 score of 98.5 pts.

Jasmine (829 pts) rises three places to 10th, just 10.5 points ahead of Edgar (818.5 pts) with the highest Week 13 score of 116 pts, thanks also to Emre and Chimbonda.

At the other end, Keh (615 pts) clearly needs some Tongkat Ali with the worst Week 13 score of 26 pts.

See you next week!

Being a Good Neighbour Requires? by Pastor Koo


a. Don't LIVE like the world
b. Don't LEAVE the world
c. LEAD the world to CHrist

a. Inconvenience
b. Time

Fantasy Football Week 13

This is my team for Week 13.

Darius Vassell
Too expensive to drop.
Just didn't click.

Dennis Bergkamp
Replaces Michael Essien. Hoping he'll start ahead of Robin van Persie.
Why, oh why, didn't I take Robin van Persie?

Darren Bent
Picking him up when everyone's dropped him.
No wonder everyone fropped him.

Morten Gamst Pedersen
Replaces Laurent Robert. Fingers crossed against a very good away side in Charlton.
When Blackburn score four, you expect to get at least a goal with one assist, didn't happen. Not bad though. Better than expected. Two SCs showed he tried.

Claus Jensen
Replaces Dean Whitehead. Cheap and proven.
Hmmm, late injury news?

Robert Pires
Replaces Danny Murphy. Let the Pires-Henry show take to the road!
Probably the only Arsenal midfielder who didn't perform.

Belezoglu Emre
Replaces Joey Barton. Can't afford Owen, so Emre is the mext best thing. Could've been N'Zogbia too.
Scores the fortuitous winner, but his all-round game was pleasing too.

Peter Ramage
Replaces Radostin Kishishev. Gut feel.
And the gut is right for once! Ramage causes the Damage! Maybe he can keep Carr out!

Gael Clichy
Replaces Leighton Baines. Arsenal's home banker.
Stubbs' goal made the difference.

Nigel Reo-Coker
Replaces Asier del Horno. Cheated of a goal recently. May he come good.
Had a quiet game.

Jose Manuel Reina
Cheapest of the lot. Can't afford anyone else.
Well done.

Projected points: 89.3
Actual points: 92.5

Fantasy Football Week 12

This is my team for Week 12.

Darius Vassell
Replaces Hernan Crespo. Renews partnership with Cole against Villa at home. 'Nuff said.
Saved my bacon.

Darren Bent
Scored midweek against Chelsea. Against Bolton at home.Where was he?

Laurent Robert
Set-piece specialist against Sunderland.

Dean Whitehead
Replaces Nolberto Solano. Cheap and proven.
Got lucky.

Michael Essien
Decnt enough.

Danny Murphy
Home against Bolton. The assist kin.

Joey Barton
Hoping for Man City this week.

Radostin Kishishev
Replaces Nigel Reo-Coker. Plays in Charlton midfield.
Not much expected from him.

Leighton Baines
Replaces Chris Powell and Stephane Henchoz. Wigan's defensive record will stand.

Asier del Horno
The revelation of the season continues!

Jose Manuel Reina
Cheapest of the lot.
Finally makes good.

Projected points: 98.6
Actual points: 79.0
