Xiaxue will save the planet

“Eh, why you all wear green?”

“It’s Earth-Fest”

“I’m not wearing green!”

“It’s ok. It wasn’t stated in the contract”.

Xiaxue has taken over the blogging station and has started her shift at Earth-Fest. Her pledge is “I will use my air-con for 2 hours less a day”.

And you know even though she forgot to wear green today, her heart’s green and in the right place. If you want to see her blog ‘live’, come down now to One Fullerton, and you’ll see her scurrying in and out of Starbucks, taking pictures and then running back to the computer to upload her pictures of the event, taken on her fancy pink camera.

Live Earth

WinliveI’m blogging ‘live’ from One Fullerton for Earth-Fest, a local event that ties in with Live Earth, and I’ve just put up my first blog post for the event. Then I’m going to sit back a bit and tune in to the rest of the planet’s concerts. I hear from Joe Augustin’s computer (volume very loud) that the concerts in Sydney have already started, and are quite happening.

Mari kita bomb dia!

It’s comforting to know that no matter how objectionable one finds one’s country’s senior statesmen’s statements, the neighbouring country’s senior statesmen always manage to trump ours.

…(the) MIGs are given, are sold to us without any condition, if you feel like bombing Singapore, for example, the Russians are not going to object…

…But this great aircraft called F-18, which we bought from America, after buying it, after several months, I got to know that this aircraft cannot be used for any attacks against any country, even if this is not Singapore.


Mahathir is da bomb!

Singapore rated in bottom 10 of world’s most courteous cities

Talking CockReaders’ Digest surveys are skewed. Our fair country rates lowly among the courteous cities of this world (bottom ten leh!) only because in our First World nation with First World amenities, doors open and close themselves and most public toilets have automatic flushes.

We don’t need to be courteous! We have machines to be courteous on our behalf! Serious! You’ve been spoken to by those very courteous talking lifts which very kindly not only tell you what floor your lift has stopped at, they also tell you if the door is opening or closing.

So misleading, these surveys.
