Anyway, the MBC was definitely a blast! Spectators started queuing before 7 p.m. Young and old, male and female, Singaporeans and foreigners alike, thousands of people chose to leave the comfort of their homes to participate in the countdown. That may not have been enough to fill the 30,000 seating-capacity in the world's largest floating stage. But for those who chose to take part in the biggest New Year’s Eve celebration event in the country, they couldn't have been disappointed. There was a bit of a ruckus between 9:00 - 9:30 p.m. when a number of people crossed over...

We live in a fast-paced world, function in accordance to a defined logic and play by the rules of social norms.

An elderly man nearly drowned at Splashdown 2006 on Sept. 9 while attempting to set a record holding his breath underwater.
Organised by the NUS University Lifeguard Corps on an annual basis, this year’s Splashdown event marked its 18th inception and was held at the NUS SRC swimming pool.
Peter Yan, who is in his fifties, was struggling three minutes into his record setting attempt which was to have been the finale for the event.
“He gestured to the lifeguards who were beside him in the water that he did not want to give up initially,” said Adelyn Yew, a fourth-year English language major who was participating in Splashdown and witnessed the mishap.
Yan, who was earlier introduced as a ‘qigong’ master, was hauled out of the pool 270 seconds into his record attempt, when the two lifeguards who were within an arm’s length of him in the water, realised he was motionless.
“He (Yan) was found to be in a state of shock,” said Joel Chua, vice-president of the Lifeguard Corps. “The medics from the St. John’s Ambulance reacted after he was dragged out of the water.”

This website offers a free file delivery service for Singapore residents to share their files easily and anonymously. Its server is connected directly to the SingaporeONE network, so you can expect the upload and download speeds to be "blazingly fast". It's like the yousendit, rapidshare and megaupload of Singapore.

My company had already issued a warning becoz this blogging business is going out of hand. For those who faithfully read my entries, I dare say that never once have I painted a negative image of my company. But alas, some out there decides to bite the hand that feeds them, bitching about the very same people who puts food on their table, n thus, I am no longer allowed to carry on with something I throughly enjoy.
