Greed of the Dragon & A spooky Halloween Poem: One Dark Night, In the Middle of the Day...

Fast painting of an epic battle against a great red dragon. You wanted it, you got it! What we have here is a clash of the titans. A face-off between two great hoarders. Who will win?! Dragons are well known for their greed and desire to hoard treasures. But so are squirrels.

From a very talented Mary Doodles.

My other favourite is her "A spooky Halloween Poem: One Dark Night, In the Middle of the Day...":

of "Heartening to see how readily S'poreans help woman having seizure"

With regards to STOMP article, "Heartening to see how readily S'poreans help woman having seizure", I just wonder how the STOMPer knew that the good Samaritans in the heart-warming article are Singaporeans. See, they may be foreigners--and not necessarily Singaporeans. Unless of course, the STOMPer inquired the nationality of the caring individuals.

Instead of the word 'Singaporeans' in the article, I'd prefer the more accurate 'people in Singapore'.

Keep up the good work, Singaporeans people in Singapore!

Quoted from the STOMP article:

STOMPer Seaeagle was proud to see these Singaporeans step forward and assist a woman, who apparently had a seizure and collapsed near MacDonald House in Dhoby Ghaut this afternoon (Oct 20).

The STOMPer compares this to a recent story where a 2-year-old girl who was run over by a truck in China, and 18 passers-by did not come to her aid.

The STOMPer wrote:

"At around 1pm today, I spotted a woman who seemed to be having an epileptic seizure near MacDonald House on Orchard Road.

"Luckily, there were many good Samaritans nearby to help.

"So Singaporeans are not like apathetic and always inconsiderate.

"This is not the first time I have witnessed people stepping up to help someone in need -- I was at Chinatown when a man had a seizure and people came forward to help him.

"What a contrast to the recent case in China where a Chinese toddler who was ignored by 18 passers-by after being the victim of a hit-and-run accident in a wholesale market in southern China.

"Keep up the good work, Singaporeans!"

Harmoni One Batam Escapade by Liveoffcoupon

Went to Batam for a relaxing 2D1N stay in Harmoni One courtesy of a great deal by Liveoffcoupon.

What a minute, did I say great? The only great thing is the hotel: Harmoni One. Others 'privilege' like a city tour (boring, incompetent tour guide from Best Batam who misplaced my disembarkation 'white' card), seafood lunch (totally below the standard - avoid Golden Prawn 933 at all cost!), flying fox + paintball (actually quite fun!), Balinese massage (hard & painful), $10 batam shopping center (which only valid at one obscure Factory Outlet and only redeemable if you purchase minimum Rp 200,000.00).

All in all, the hotel Harmoni One is the only GREAT about the trip. Still I manage to snap some photos. So it's not altogether a wasted trip. Heh.

1. Klenteng Nabi Khong Hu Chu

2. UFO - Unidentified Floating Object (Enlighten me what the ship is about, pls...)

3. A statue of the Buddha

4. Chan Chu or the Lucky Money Toad

5. A ceremony which involved a beautiful maiden wearing high-heel shoes freeing turtles to the pond??

6. Statues of beautiful maidens (not the previous one, though) taking shower?! How this becomes a part of the temple is beyond me...

7. Guanyin and the Thousand Arms

8. Free, but not impressive seafood lunch at Golden Prawn 933. Other bad reviews here and here.

9. A statue of a winged lion and a moon (taken from Harmoni One hotel, sixth floor - the level where the swimming pool & gym are located).

10. Two winged lions - I just love the statues! Heh.

Tick Tock ... Your Time's Up ... Everyone's Really!!

Beside its curious way of playing the scenes backwards, I too like how the short film, "Tick Tock"--uploaded to YouTube on 22/02/11 by campusmoviefest--ends with an incredibly apt quote from the recently departed co-founder of Apple, Steve Jobs.

By the way the full quote of his is as follows:

Almost everything--all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure--these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.

Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

Rest in peace, Steve Jobs. You've done a fantastic job to follow your heart...

Tanya Lovework or Tanya Chu?

Tanya Lovework

The photo was screen-grabbed from Facebook "SOL Singapore". The reason is because I'm wondering whether Tanya's real name is Tanya Chu or Tanya Lovework.

In my previous post, "FHM SOL-diac babes: Who is the fairest among them all?", the Taurus babe is named as Tanya Chu.

In the Facebook "SOL Singapore", however, hers is Tanya Lovework. As well as this Facebook, "Tanya Lovework" or "Tanya".

Curiouser and curiouser. Heh.
