This & That Including What Ails

Sunday News

on March 27, 2016

Reading the Sunday Times in the morning over breakfast is a tad depressing!πŸ˜“

Brussels recent bomb attacks and the second man being caught gives room for cheer but the carnage is done. The dead cannot rise like Christ and walk amongst us whole!

Sadly, Brussels and Europe are hurled more terroist threats by ISIS.

My lil red dot knows that sooner or later we will be hit. I see military men guarding our airports, MRT stations and public areas. Are we anti terroist ready? As a lil red dot, are our people resilient?

2 young men were killed whilst walking on the MRT train track to resolve signalling issues. Safety lapses caused the sad end of these 2 men aged 23 years and 24 years respectively. Killed in the line of work! I read their families’ obituaries placed in the papers, thanking all who tried to lessen their heart ache.

Weather is reported to be at 34 degrees celcius. We had 35 degrees celcius! It is crazy heat wave in March. I shudder to think what June to August temperatures we will get given these are our hottest months!

Joseph Schooling our national swimmer sliced off more seconds in the fly event for trials. Good to know that though he is a sophomore at U of Texas, he is still training hard.

Meanwhile columnist Sumiko Tan is griping on her new year resolution of reading 50 books in 2016. It is March and she moans that she has not even completed one book!

Hmm…my own check at NY resolutions showed me that I was on track for being civil and a tad kinder to my Ex Boyfriend, a.k.a Mr Ex! LOL!

Our local Spelling Bee has attracted close to 1,800 students! An all time high participation. Yup, we have smart kids here.

As I pored over the newspapers, I read of how a singleton bought a government 2 bedroom flat and took pains to make it “grubby chic” – worn look with taste! New descriptive words for interior design ha ha! Paying a bomb to make your apartment look “grubby” – so much for my sense and sensibility 😊

Meanwhile, kind Dr Lui has remembered me. I got his Easter greetings whilst he was on ward rounds. I thought nobody cared. He did! So did Mr Lawyer from Perth, WA. Nice to be remembered as I often wondered when I cease to exist, will anyone miss meπŸ˜‰

Monday beckons and I dread the work week.

Ms 17 years at work with Electrical Lord has plunged 2 knives in my back during Saturday evening.

Monday will be painful removal as I will get beration from Electrical Lord.

Office politicks suck and if I was an evil witch with witchery skills…boy oh boy…would I cast spells on the evil folks such that they know what pain is!

Yup it is Sunday folks….Monday is on the horizon and I dread it with every drop of blood in me! Sigh….πŸ˜•
