Old photos…

Sky line... Red House

Changi Airport Deep Blue Ocean

Fishing Boat

Found some old photos that I took in the 90s. Photos were taken using negatives then. Scanning technology was poor at that time and I had to make do with what was available. It’s such a pity now that I can’t find these pictures anymore, only got the above digital copies left. emoticon

Lips Cafe…

lipscafe

While going for a movie at Cineleisure a couple of days ago, I passed by the Lips Cafe and realised that it’s now closed. Think it has been closed for quite sometime. While they were still opened, I used to go there with someone I was infatuated with for a shake and pizza before movies ‘cos she liked the mango shake and pizza. The shake was good but I wasn’t too crazy about the pizza but it didn’t matter then.

Things eventually didn’t work out between us and I stopped going there ‘cos I didn’t take it too well. Over the years I would still pop by occasionally for a snack but not as often. How I wish that I had gone for a shake and pizza before its closure.

Are you sleeping?

Mandrake talks about cats. Reminded me of a story a friend of mine told me.

When they were still kids, she and her sister once found this cat and made a nice little cote for the poor little bugger. They found some clothe and made it into something like a bed, made sure the sweet old thing was absolutely comfortable.

They sang a lullaby and stroke the cute kitty gently and it purred warmly before going into a blissful slumber.

Then with mischief, strength and violence you’ll never know existed in them, they flipped the dang thing over.

Army joke…

Very old joke during army days….

3 generals from 3 countries including Singapore met up for a talk cock and bragging session. They were bragging about how brave their soldiers were.

General 1: My soldier brave, I tell him jump from ship, he’ll jump.

He orders one of his soldiers to jump from the aircraft carrier and the soldier jumps and plummets to his death in the murky sea.

General 2: My soldier better! Ask him jump off a cliff, he’ll do it without thought.

He orders one of his soldiers to jump off a cliff and the soldier makes the ultimate sacrifice for his country plunging into the dark ravines far below.

Singapore general: I’ll show you two!

Then he orders one of his men to jump off a plane without a parachute. The soldier looks at the general, shows him the middle finger, said, “You siao ah?!!! KNNCCB! F***ING MORON! WHY DON’T YOU JUMP YOURSELF??!!!!” and walks off.
