I find myself doing repetitive task of searching good books in amazon site and checking NLB online catalogue if they are available in the library. Very time consuming, so this site combines information from Amazon and NLB under one page. Do check it out.

Risk - The more levels you build, the higher the risk that it may topple. The taller they are, the harder they fall. Also, the bigger the structure, the greater the cost (more time and effort). The more time and effort you put into building up something, the greater your desire that it wouldn't topple, and the harder you work at trying to ensure that it doesn't.
Procrastination - When procrastinating, you can do the weirdest things...

Singapore Critic takes issue with the meaning of ownership as defined by HDB and compares it to renting a private apartment.
...an overwhelming 95.6 percent of households interviewed prefer to own rather than rent a flat. ".
My question now would be:
- How many of these people actually think that they "own" their 99 year lease hold flat?
- How many of these people actually know that they are actually "renting" these HDB flats from the government, and not "buying" them?
- Or are these people voicing their unhappiness that these flats are "leasehold"?

Lancerlord said "In the Straits Times today regarding the topic of having ca-Sin-No here in Singapore, it says that "Gambling addicts: 55,000 at risk".
But on the other hand, in today's Today frontpage news states "What gambling problem?"
So is having a ca-Sin-No here a problem or not? One paper says at risk, the other says what problem."
