Mom’s Company CNY Dinner 2004

Met up with my Liaison Officer today in SP at the café. He need some help on how to install Apache, PHP and MYSQL. Also showed him the work that I have done so far. He seems to be satisfied with my work so far. Went to meet Geargina in 2055 to take back my Heer Card.

Came back, played abit of Final Fantasy VII. The game have some compatibility issues with Windows XP and ATI Radeon 9800 but thanks to Google, I managed to find a good site which provides all the necessary patches. 6 Years ago FFVII I find that the graphics is good and running in 640×480 is the best. 6 years later (now) I find the graphics is average and the resolution is too low for my LCD monitor to displayed it properly. No choice but to bare with it because I just love FFVII.

The Last Samurai

Been a long time since I last overslept, maybe the weather today is good to sleep or I am just plain tired or my alarm clock is spoiled. Suppose to meet Xiu Yu at 10am but I woke up at 9.30pm. But luckily my mom woke up on time and ask me whether I want a ride to Marina Square, and due to that I was late for only 5 minutes. I think Xiu Yu can be considered the most punctual girl in DMMT because every time go out with her she is always on time. =p

Had the $1.80 Sausage McMuffin With Egg for breakfast and watch The Last Samurai at GV Marina. The show last for around 2 hours and 30 minutes, and yes the show rocks. So far all my friends who watched the show, said it was good. At first I thought it was just another crap movie, but after watching it, it was nice. The show tells us alot about honor and the last battle was touching. They did not use much special effects, maybe only for the start of the movie and I think ALOT of casts are involved because of the battle.

Happy 21st Birthday Laily!

Woke up early yesterday and went to take my scholarship from Singapore Toys and Confectionery Association. It is a $500 scholarship. But rather this is an unforgettable event. I will explain it.

The Singapore Toys and Confectionery Association is located at one of the street in Geylang, there are no more parking lot along that street so I proceed on to the next street. Saw a parallel parking lot so I went in. As the lot is beside the construction site, I felt it is not safe. So I moved off bit by bit till my car is 1/4 out of the parking lot. Then suddenly one taxi traveling straight hit my car front part. It was a very minor accident. Both parties is at fault but due to the fact that straight road have the right of the way, 90% is my fault. I am at fault because I did not see the taxi as I thought 1/4 of my car is out and most people will give way to you. The taxi is at fault because it is traveling at a very fast speed in a very narrow lane. When I say very fast I mean at least 60km/h because after hitting my car’s front part, the taxi still did not stop completely but continue to move on and that explains why there is a long scratch on his car. Luckily my mom was around and can settle it with him as I got no experience in this. The worst part is that I dreamed I got involved in a car accident also where 1 car knock into my car behind the previous night. Talk about Deja vu

An Hai Association’s Scholarship

Yesterday, had a steamboat dinner at Marina South with Serene and Co. I think our guest-of-honor is Terry because seldom get to go out with him. We tired the one at Super Bowl. They have alot of variety and I think the food is also nicer than that of Dragon Inn. No wonder the Super Bowl one is always crowded with people. They even have live prawns and crabs. The table we sat at is a little far from the food section, thus I think we eat very little as least for me. I still think all of us talk more than we eat because we have lots of catching up to do.

Woke up at 10.30am today to go and collect my scholarship from “An Hai Association”. They ask us to be there at 11am but they start at 12pm. But the 1 hour wait is worth it. They did not state how much is the scholarship, but when I receive it, I got a shock. It is $600, and that is why I say the wait is worth it. =D

American Idol 3

Finally continued work on my ITP project. I don’t really feel stress doing the ITP project maybe I think I am used to php programming. But when I am stuck at somewhere Google has always been a great help. For example when you got an error and you have no idea what the error is, just paste it in the search box of Google and you will get the solution.

I have finished coding the polls plug-in for WordPress, I will upload it sometime next week. I think I will be busy during this weekend.

CNY Dinner 2004

Yesterday fixed some serious bug that went though me un-noticed in the wp-archives.php page. When you enter the page, it will generate 644 MYSQL queries.

Had lunch with my mom and brother at Great World City. I drove my mom’s car there. When parking in the car-park, my engine went dead 3 times. I hate Manual Transmission Car because I am no car enthusiast. I just want to get from point A to point B in the shortest and easiest way and that is what I think car is made for.

River Hong Bao 2004

Yesterday, Victor and Yong Tang came my house. I helped Yong Tang to do some programming in ASP for his FYP. Lost touch of my ASP skills ever since I stop doing my FYP. I kinda like his FYP idea. It is about bus arrival time information. You are able to check what time a bus will arrived at the bus stop you are currently at. The deliverables is of course not the actual thing as we do not have the information from SBS, is more like a stimulation.

Met up with the rest of my secondary school friends for dinner at Marina Square. Wanted to play CS, but could not even find a single LAN shop in Marina Square. End up we went to River Hong Bao. It was drizzling. The rides there are VERY EXPENSIVE, and this year I think is different vendor for the fun fair because ALOT of rides are missing and sad to say, my favourite Music Dance was missing too. Wanted to sit a ride(not sure of the name), but it cost $20 and only 2 of us wanted to take it. If there are 4 of us, I will definitely take it. The ride has 2 carriages that can sit 4 people each and they will lift the carriage and rotate it.

End Of Holidays

Yesterday, my mom’s friend came over to my house for Chinese New Year visit. Every year each of them will take turn to host this ‘event’, so this year is my mom’s turn. So my dear friends, next time when we are all married we shall do that, every year each take turn to host. It is a good idea right? =D

My mom prepare lots of food and they are small eaters, thus alot of food are left over. I love my mom’s blue berry cheese cake, so far all the blue berry cheese cake I had eaten, NONE can beat my mom’s one.

My Brother’s Samsung E700A

Had my lunch at Heeren’s Sakae Sushi again because my mom got $40 worth of voucher. Wanted to buy my brother’s handphone from Hello@Orchard, but it is not worth it, $888 for 12 months upgrade. Went to Far East Square to look for Mobile Square either it is closed or I could not find it.

Saw Yong Tang, Chee Wee and Xiu Ling at Hello@Orchard. Chee Wee handphone which is Nokia 6100 got stolen in his camp, and he went here to get a new phone. Argh, cursed those handphone stealers die a horrible death. I don’t think my S500 will be safe in army too.

Silver Hawk

Watched Silver Hawk starring Michelle Yeoh and Richie Ren at GV Plaza. The show was not too bad, still acceptable. After watching the show, I realize that Michelle Yeoh is pretty even though she is quite old. After the movie had some light snacks at Mos Burger. Surprising, almost all the food outlets in Plaza Singapura are open for business and they are quite packed. But I think as times goes by, more shops will be opened for business unless the economy recovers. Currently I think Chinese New Year is the only time of year where most of the shops are closed for business.

Went to my auntie house later for a late lunch followed by my grandmother brother’s house to collect red packet. Today, my business is bad, only 1 red packet collected. Sigh =(
