Happy Birthday!!! Singapore!!!

It is the 42nd Birthday for Singapore.
This year has been exceptional as :-
1) The celebration is brought to Marina Bay and on a water platform.
2) A set of brand new experience for the audience attending.
3) A water curtain in between the display and with laser beam through it.
4) Firework at various locations.

Indeed it is a very spectacular expereince for all at the Bay.
I did enjoy myself to the show.
Although I didn't get to see it at the ceremony stand.
Watching the display from the opposite end is also an experience.
It's been also 20+ years I've never been to watch NDP live.
Today is an exceptional for me.
Being interested in the above reasons for this year NDP.
I also would like to capture some enchanting and beautiful moments of NDP.
Mainly because it's held at the waterfront and it's my favorite views.

So I have captured some beautiful and lovely shots of NDP & waterfront.
Do enjoy some of my pictures below and also the slide show at the side column.

5 Years....

5 Years is such a significant period for me.
Many things have happened over these 5 Years.

1) Mum's Anniversary
Within a few more days of the Lunar Calender.
Mum would have passed on for 5 years.
Had gone to the temple where she rest yesterday...
To pay my due respect to her.
As I had not visited her for a long long time.
Took the chance of my rest day to go over.
Things have change in the temple.
Renovation has been going on to upgrade the facet.
Good for the temple so that it will be rejuvenated.
So that Mum will have a better environment there.

2) A Step Closer to Financial Freedom
Received the credit of my investment profit back in my CPF.
Took the time to visit the HDB office to clear my remaining loans.
Didn't have this plan out during the time when I bought my current flat.
Was actually planning for a 10 years period to clear my loans.
However, it seems that things just being in the advantage for me.
Done some investment about over 5 years ago.
The investment seems to have progress pretty well.
It had make a tidy 160% profit for me.
This is what I had not expected to happen.
Hence, with the current economic instability condition (overheated).
Took partial profit out to repay my loan (in case anything happen to the economy).
Keeping the remaining still vested for more or better gains.
So I am one step closer to financial freedom.
Will work on more financial initiatives to improve my financial position.

3) Perspective of Life has changed
My perspective of life has changed.
Have learnt to take life much more easily.
Learn to appreciate the moment in life;
Learn to appreciate the people around me more;
Learn to appreciate the things I am bless with;
Learn to appreciate the time I am given;
Learn to appreciate the opportunity of giving and letting go.......
I'm no more the young lad that took life so hard.
Missing a lot of moments, time, people, things etc in life.
When I was younger I had tend to push myself too hard,
Not knowing that infact I lost more than I gain.
As an energectic and active young lad - Achievement is all I care.
After all these years when I reflected back - What is Achievement after all?
It is all but a passing cloud - it comes and goes.
Of course in between the experiences gain is valuable.
It is something that the book will never be able to teach me.
I am not into any regrets for what I've been through.
But the balance in life that I had not been able to achieved earlier.
Probably it's the family background that I have.
Was too eager to achieve more to
let my parents have a better life.
Seeing them toil all their life to support us is a pain.
Anyway these 5 years after mum passing on has changed me completely.

What's installed for me over the next 5 years in life?????????..................

Super Busy

OMG....Had been super busy over the last few days.
So many things to do and happen all almost at the same time.

New Boss was on reservist so helping the seniors to coordinate works.
As he will be away over three weeks period.
Had to help out due to manpower shortages over the three weeks.
Woking a little extra to help clear the load and meet the target.

Friend's father passed on so went over to condole.

Had to meet agents to discuss on my new investment.
Was talking to them on my new requirement and needs.
So that they can work out the investment plan for me.
Got all of that done within two evening.
A few new investments are in force now.
So now I have to monitor them to see the progress initially.
Just to make sure that the $$$ invested is really working for me.
Short term may not see the effect but looking at mid term and long term.
Next is to await the earlier return-on-investment to be credited.
So that I can get the housing loan settled.
Then I am down with 1 debt free planning.
More to come.
Can't afford to live on debt - pretty dangerous these days.
But the commercial world just try to get all of us into debt.
Leveraging may be a way for some or many.
But this tool has to be used careful.
If not careful then can get ones into big trouble also.

Next thing to work out is my old age fund............
Am I that OLD yet?????? WinkTongueSurpriseShockedSmile
Nah... Just trying to plan a little further to make sure I have enough to retire.
Also to make sure that I can retire without having to worry about 3 meals.
And still benefit to enjoy a carefree life.
Am I thinking too far away??????

Then there were some home related and personal issues pops up.
Tried to have them settled within the shortest possible time.
Manage to get them all almost settled.
There are still few issues bugging me.
Hopefully can get them settled next week.

Phew!!! I am all drain out.
I must take a rest to energise.
Or else there are two more weeks ahead to be busy with work.
Had been missing out on all my SMS's, emails, missing calls etc.
Will try to review them all and start getting back to them.

Still awaiting for my interview result.
Don't know what happen to it?
Was told being reviewed and it's already more than a month now.
Has it been trash or is it still in KIV?
I don't know??????
Really don't know who's suppose to make the decision now.
(Another failure in the system in this co.)
Probably I'll be more proactive by going to the HR and ask about it.
If it had been trash then I can concentrate on what I'm suppose to be doing.
If it is still in KIV then how long more have I to wait?
I need an answer to this.
As I still owe New Boss an answer on this.
(Did inform him about this application and he's been supportive)
That's why he can't plan for my job right now.

Well....Busy week ahead.

Time To Harvest

I think it is about time to harvest my strawberry.
Will harvest those that have ripen soon.
Will do it tomorrow.

My neigbours are complimenting my strawberry too....Big SmileSmileBig SmileSmile
So proud of them.

Also it is time to harvest some of my investment.
Have just got my agent (sis) to work out my investment.
In order to reap some profit first before the market get too hot.
Will clear out my housing first with the profit.
Then, will sow more investment at the right price and right moment.
In a way to get her going.
At the same time help myself with a bigger retirement fund...Wink

Good to see her pulling up her sock after "adviced" by me.
Now she had shown a good attitude and improvement in finding her own path.
Working hard full time and wanted to keep a few more jobs to save more.

Dazzy-----Dreaming-----About my retirement fund now.....
Not forgetting my round-the-world tour........AngelWinkAngelTongue
Oh..Oh..also not forgetting - Three-Blind-Mice - Ten Year Tour....Tongue

Things Ain't Right....

When things seem to be on the wrong side of the bed.
Everything else just don't get right.
Everything that I do or did just don't get done smoothly.
Is it a psychological effect or is it a Dilbert effect?
I don't know.
Everything just not in my favour.

One last thing that I am still hoping to get it right is my last interview result.
Yet to hear anything after the interview.
But am hoping that things will turn out in my favour.
For I have been longing to get into this position.
So that I can have another profile to add on.
And it could lead me to a better prospect.
Probably it could be my next career advancement.

Positively thinking of it to happen.............................

Patience Wearing Out

I don't know how much longer I can hold my patience?
His unreasonable behaviour and nonesense is wearing my patient out.
I am afraid that I will loose control of my patience
And do the most destructive thing by throwing out everything in my mind.

I hope I won't have to do that.
Trying very hard to keep my cool.
Not because of anyone but for the sake of mum.
Nagging at me for every details that I do for him.
Complaining about every small details that must be done his way.
Always assuming that he is right.
Most words used by him are very piercing and hurting to hear.
If not for my cool I would have tell him off long ago.

Keep my cool....Keep my cool....Keep my cool....
Smile like an idiot....Smile like an idiot.....Smile like an idiot.....
Be like a fool....Be like a fool....Be like a fool....

Anyway maid was deported for good reason.
Indeed she had misbehaved.
Got pregnant for about three months by some unidentified foreign worker...
That she got to know probably during one of her Off Day or...
Probably introduce by some other maids in the same block...

Had told and advice her many many time to becareful of whom she get to know.
Yet turn on a deaf ear.
That's the dramatic ending she ended up with.
Deported and never ever to come back to work here.
Now pregnant and who's gonna be responsible?????
Off Day for maid is doing more harm than good????

Fortunate

I think I am very fortunate.....
To have friends whom care.

During this down period of mine
I have been receiving encouraging words and supports.

"Smile and you will see rainbow.... "
"...life is hard, but such things makes us stronger..."
"...send a smile with the heart out to people we like and who need assistance. There you stand in the first place. I hope it will help..."
"...CHEER UP ya I believe you can overcome this..."
"...just call if you need a friend to talk to..."
"...take care and see you smile again..."
"...hang in there..."
"...God loves you so trust him with your situation..."
"...feeling better today..."
"...have peace within and get some slumber..."
"...have a good rest and take care..."
"...let's have dinner and talk about it..."
"...like to share and breathe out the stale air inside you...cheers..."

Indeed I felt I am fortunate and bless with such good friends around me.
Thank You my friends and I will love you all always.

Toss & Turn

Been unable to sleep again.
Toss and turn and still not able to get to sleep.
Much as I would love to turn in.
But the moment I close my eyes,
The images just play in front of me.
For I know if I still don't sleep
Then it's bad for my health and bad for my concentration.

I just can't help it.
The image just keep playing.
It is not of any fantasy images but the tears rolling down the corner of Pa's eyes.
This is second time this month that I have seen it.
Have tried to ask him what had happened but he just won't tell me.
That's what make me even more worried.
With his mood swing now - I'm just feeling more uncomfortable.
Am afraid that his mind will run wild and think of silly things.

Mum........If you are around me now......
Please tell me what should I do?
This arithmetic problems is getting more and more complicated now.
I am just finding clueless to any lead to find a solution.
For I probably would have guessed what's happening...
But I don't wanna stir the sediments and create more issues now.
Just in a dilemma as to what should I do.
And I am also getting very very tired in solving this arithmetic problem.
But I know I have to continue to try to solve it for your sake.

Maid has been deported.
Was told she had been under performing lately.
Telling lies and been in bad companies.
Eversince she had her Off Day.
Would have expected such things to happen.
Had observe it for myself.
She had been dolling up herself and wear pretty clothes.
Not concentrating and on the SMS most of the time secretly.
When ask her to errands she would take longer than expected to return.

Now with the maid deported.
Not sure how things would turn out.
Just have to pray hard that the table would turn around.
