I was here for a wedding last weekend. I just read that it's the oldest existing church in Singapore. It's also where the Singapore Boys' Brigade was founded.

Read more about this building at their church website or Wikipedia.

Shepherds need to dig their nose too.

I looked through the photos I took these few days and saw this. I laughed when I saw this.

Just a cheeky post today. I am sure you dig your nose in public too right?

Orchard Rd closed...

This was yesterday at Orchard Road. Part of it was closed to traffic and it's a rare opportunity to walk on the roads without vehicles.

The malls were packed with people going for post-Christmas bargains. It was madness!

Have a Blessed Christmas!

The year's almost over. A time where many count their blessings.

If you are feeling down and rejected, it's time to find out the real reason for Christmas. Talk to a friend whom you know is a Christian and find out from them why. It's the best time to ask without feeling awkward ;-)

Matthew 19:26 - Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." (NIV)

Have a very Blessed Christmas!

The Filipino community sings..

Looks like it is really multi-cultural this year.

There are also Korean and Japanese community performing too.

If you have been curious and wanting to know what Christianity is about, if you find it threatening to walk into a church during normal days, this week is the best to walk in. Grab a friend along and head to a church that's around where you live.

A few colleagues are already on leave till next year. *envy*

Sleeping with legs so high...

Saw this yesterday when colleagues and I went out for lunch.
We passed by a park and saw someone sleeping with legs crossed up so high.

Everyone sleeps differently. I guess if he's comfy like that it's ok.

What kind of sleeper are you?
Face up, face down or side sleeper?

Lights... Camera... Post..

Just passed a tiny bit of Orchard Road after having dinner with friends.

Saw the lights, took out the camera and took a picture while on a moving vehicle.

Maybe tomorrow I shall walk along Orchard Road and pick up a few presents.

Bus Tracking Project - ShuttleNet

Few days ago, I saw one of the wifi routers around. Ah... saw another router hanging at another bus stop. With hints from the notice there, I found out it's the ShuttleNet project by the Communications and Internet Research Lab at the School of Computing, NUS.

It's dangling very dangerously isn't it?

If you are bored and want to find out where the Internal Shuttle Buses in NUS are right now, click here. It shows that these dangling stuff works!

The Postlady arrives...

I seldom get to see this. I am usually at work when the postal ladies come along to deliver posts.

The other lady is seen waiting patiently for the postal lady to put mail into her postbox. Wondering if she's expecting some Christmas cards or something.. Hmm....

Sailorboy's wedding.

Attended a friend who has the nickname Sailorboy's wedding. It was such a light-hearted church wedding. We could not believe what they said during their vows!

The above is the Sailorboy's mates from the Republic of Singapore Navy giving him the Arch of Swords after they march in. Really really cool!

As usual, friend's face photos do not appear here. :-)

Why is it fix at the bus stop? There's even a big chain too.

Momo took this photo earlier when she was in her parents car.
It's always nice to view bright colourful lights ya?

The air blower...

Looks like a big monstrous hair dryer don't you think?

Many car parks seems to be using this now, depending on the design of the car park.
I call it the hair dryer type air circulator. Do you know the name of it?

Same church with two locations.

Today a whole group of us attended our friend's wedding. Congratulations B and L!
You all made a great couple.

The wedding was at Telok Ayer Chinese Methodist Church. (TA2) at Wishart Road (Off Telok Belangah Road).

We had a good laugh when a few people sms some in our group. "Is the wedding today? How come the church is closed?" Did they decide to cancel the wedding?

Of course not!

They have gone to the wrong location. This church has two Sanctuaries. One at Telok Ayer Street and the other off Telok Belangah Road. They all rushed over quickly and got to catch the bride enter the Sanctuary ;-)

The Long Escalator

I was at a recently refurbished shopping mall with colleagues for lunch.

We saw that they now have escalators that directly goes up to the 2nd storey and also the 3rd storey from the 1st storey. (aka ground floor in many countries).

I guess they are trying to make it easier for people who knows where they want to go, to get there quicker. ;-)

Remember the old bus stops?

Long long ago, bus stops in Singapore looked like this.

The bus stops no longer look like this. This is an exception, I guess because it's a temporary bus stop while there is roadworks around.

What happaned to your sticker books?

A look at these men replacing the "big stickers" on the 'billboard' suddenly brings to mind: "What happened to all the stickers I collected when I was young?"

Did you all have stickers and sticker books? Where are they now? :-)
