Public (Service) Announcement


While the haze seems to have settled down quite a fair bit since late last week, I think it is still prudent to avoid food prepared outdoors. This is especially since a friend of mine reported a fresh layer of dust on his cardboard boxes in his shop each day during the hazy period, despite being indoors. Now extrapolate this situation to the hawker centres and you'll get the idea.

Also, I'm going to be taking a short hiatus from flogging because my life has just been so packed with appointments and lists of things to do. Every. Single. Minute. is without rest, oh except the one-hour-a-day-break perhaps. And even that ends too quickly.

Have you ever felt so up to your neck in work that sleep really feels like a waste of time? That at every moment, your mind is running through your many mental lists of things to do that seem to surpass the horizon. That life seems so compartmentalised yet messy at the same time. That you wish you could just stop all the clocks in the world, sort out your life, then carry on with everyone else's.

I'm sure everyone has felt this way at some point in their life. Some me-time is definitely long overdue.

Hi daffy, i remember you did a review on wild rocket a while ago. can i just ask what is the shortest way up to mount emily, if you're going by bus, or walking?

Nonchann>I'm not! *grin* I was just doing a recording for a radio show, Lunch Time Crunch Time with Gabe!=)

Fel> if i record an album, u'll have to buy one, i'll NEVER give u. heh.

Anonymous>Hi, by bus I'm not sure but if you want to walk there, walk towards Mount Emily/Mount Sophia. At one point there will be two slopes upwards (from ground level) for you to choose. Choose the one on the right and walk, keeping to the right hand side. Look out of a sign that says Hangout Hotel that should lead to a pretty long flight of stairs. I hope this helps! If all else fails, ask someone?

Totally know what you are referring to.. the days when you wish time would stop and let you do your stuff, think everything through and that things will stop coming at you... when you don't feel that you want anyone around... just laze and do nothing... cos' everything seems just as important... take care gal

NC>I agree with you on that! Maybe you can walk down by the staircase when you go back, to familiarise yourself with the walking path. It really isn't that far, just a little hidden away.

Jing> I knew you'd understand. You would be far busier than me.

Oi Daffia! You have to bring me around, or at least give me all the locations of the food stalls when I'm back.

Heh.
