... a very small portion of the human chain that over 30,000 youth from 53 schools in Singapore had formed around central Singapore, like Ang Mo Kio, Yio Chu Kang, Bishan, Toa Payoh and even a bit of the Kallang River.

The main highlight? This was a D Gray Man event. Really. There were a few groups on both days and if you’re using a regular 35mm lens you’re sure to see at least one of them in every frame. It’s just like the Bleach and Naruto effect last year, which appears to be dying down already.

The only person that I have kept contact with is my best friend of 20 years who makes sure that I am at least in touch with our circle. Once in a while, she would pop an email to tell me who is busy doing what. I wish I could reveal as much details as she usually does in her emails but for the purpose of keeping things simple, I'll just summarize it in one sentence. Everyone is getting married...

Amidst the tight security today, we saw some good cosplay characters at Ngee Ann City’s civic plaza. The event was the semifinals for this year’s Cosfest, and the finals will take place next Sunday at Downtown East. For now, here’s a gallery of today’s event.

- We bitch a lot. A lot.
- We think about you all the time. Yes, girlfriends, friends’ girlfriends, your girl-friends, your girl-friends’ friends.. All of them.
- We actually aren’t that faithful. Each and everyone of us has a secret partner - with the rifle. In fact, the rifle is the wife and you’re just the mistress. Accept it. We don’t want it either. We were forced okay, forced!
- Yes, we do think of you, for the umpteenth time.
- We are tidy and untidy at the same time. If we see our desks/bunks/toilets in a mess, we won’t hesitate to do something about it. However, we might not. But eventually we will, and it won’t be more than a day.
- We aren’t really that garang either. We just think that, since there’s no way we can not do it, we just do it with vigour so it can help us get it over and done with - fast.

This is not an exercise in misogyny. Rather, it is a general diatribe against modern society. We - and by this, I mean both men and women - have unconsciously conspired to allow mediocre women to stagnate happily in their mediocrity.

In my short hour with them, never once did I feel intimidated. In fact my opinions of them changed and I felt that even though they speak their mind (read: loud), they're very real. Ros might look menacing with her height or tattoo, but she's really a nice person to talk to. Wendy, spews as much vulgarities as she does on her blog, but we discovered that hey, she is still a harmless little girl inside.

Skipping away from the relatively sybaritic Switzerland for the time being, we turn our attention to Singapore, that famously repressed city-state which isn't the kind of place where you'd want to flout the law—lest you want a hearty caning (which we know some of you do, but still). Similarly, in this set of galleries and forum, you don't want to post any actual porn—lest you want a hearty banning. You can, however, browse and post photos of scantily clad girls and search the collection by nationality, dress and genre. They may be prudes, sure, but at least they're some seriously organized and efficient prudes.

I swear I never had such dire longing to kill a living thing than the moment I realized I probably have scabies. I began picturing mites feasting underneath my skin and I suddenly wished I could bathe on a tub of kerosene to end the lives of the goddamn mites. Then again, I was afraid the kersone might damage my skin more.

Drama shows are driving men nuts!
We are expected from the girls when we're in a releationship to be like the main characters in a drama. We must be darn romantic and like present her with gifts, flowers and other bullshit that these shows made customary.

Lurtz is the inaugural piece in Sideshow Collectibles’ line of Premium Format Lord of the Rings figures. Captured mid-stride, Lurtz is intricately recreated in 1:4 scale stalking toward his intended prey. The sculpture perfectly conveys the malice and single-minded purpose of Lurtz’ attack on the Fellowship.

Finicky Feline explains why girls studying engineering are not hot and sexy:
How to wear short skirts when we’re dismantling a car engine? Sure chao geng wan. How to wear makeup when we’re cutting wood in the workshops? How to have nice long nails when we’re forever using our hands to build clever little gadgets like robots to clean the hulls of ships or fishing rods for quadriplegics? Give us a little respect. We may not be hot and sexy, but we’re trying to save the world.
Warning: incomprehensible theorems and equations inside, but other than that, an enjoyable read!
