After 1 month of weekends into my Mystery Shopper part-time job, time for me to blog/rant about it so that I can share it with you all.
Mystery shopper may sound like a nice, interesting, and perhaps a unique job. I would have to agree on that at the beginning and totally disagree on that after just 1 day of being a mystery shopper as it is becoming a chore instead.
Zhang Dong Liang (Nicholas Teo) Concert
Li Xiang bought the S$98 ticket to the Zhang Dong Liang Concert as there is a 10% discount from SISTIC. Apart from there, I think that SISTIC ticketing is a rip off. They increase their surcharge from $2 to $3 and apart from that, I have to pay handling charges. This is so ridiculous. This is what happen in Singapore when there is a monopoly. Just look at the fares for public transport, they keep increasing and increasing and we cannot do anything about it but to suck our own thumb.
Putting the price aside, the concert was fantastic, I think it is the best concert I have been to so far (I have been to only 3). The location is good, it is at Suntec Convention Center. The lighting is good. There is 2 screen projection on the left and right side with transition when switching to in-between cameras. There is even lyrics on the screen when he sang the song. I like concert when there is some talking and interaction rather than just pure singing. Zhang Dong Liang did just that by sharing us his life story including pictures of him when he is young projected on the screen.

It did not rain for many days, and it finally rain so heavily for a short while yesterday. After sending Li Xiang home, I went back home. As usual, I traveled from PIE (towards Changi), then exit to Clementi Ave 6 and followed by going straight to AYE (towards Keppel). I have been going by that route for 3 years plus and nothing happen.
I was at PIE (towards Changi) on the extreme left lane, some distance just before the slip road to Clementi Ave 6, the car in white (which you can see the photos below) was following me very closely behind me. The lane on my right was a slow moving car, so I decided to speed up a little so that he got enough space to cut to the lane on my right. But I didn’t expect him to exit from the same slip road as me (he is still following closely behind me), as all the way from the slip road to the bend, there is only 1 lane, so I maintain my speed. Once I reached the bend, the road is split into 2 lanes.
Ever wondered who is behind the voice of our MRT announcements? She is Juanita Melson. Check out this Youtube video! She is so much better than the current Ah Tiong voice. I wonder why SMRT change that. Sight, yet another part of our nation heritage being take over by Ah Tiongs.
Prior to my ordering of Dell Monitors, my desktop computer crashed after 15 minutes into a demonstration of a 3D application. It always happen when I run 3D applications. But this time after it crashes and reboots, it can’t detect my Ethernet Card (Intel PRO/1000 CT Network Connection) which is embedded on my motherboard. I tried installing drivers but it still does not work. I got quite pissed off with it and hence I formatted my computer. Even after formatting, it still cannot detect my Ethernet Card. I got even more pissed and feel like throwing my computer out of the window or even smashing it with my hands.
I left my computer as it is and went to pick LiXiang up. We went to Jurong Point for dinner and on the way I bought a Linksys Wireless G Adapter (WUSB54G). This is the second time I am buying this adapter. The first time I bought it for my camp and then after I ORDed, I sold it to Laily for half price and now I am buying it again for S$59.00.
