Goals scored by Diego Ribas da Cunha (20), Ronaldo de Assis Moreira aka Ronaldinho (26) and João Alves de Assis Silva aka Jo (81). Brazil leads 2-0 in the first half. One red card was flashed to Alex Silva in the 90th-minute for elbowing Singapore forward Qiu Li. Qiu Li was then unofficially sent off by referee Abdul Malik after getting treatment on his bloodied face.

My Last Housekeeping Day

26 Jul

Yesterday was my company quarterly house keeping activities.

House Keeping Day

All those stuffs are not mine! Mine was buried deep under the dustbin. Not much to throw in anyway.

Ramly Burger Special Now $2.80!

23 Jul

Quite some time that I had not eaten a Ramly burger. I think the last time I eat it was during last year fasting month at Geylang Serai bazaar. Today I decided to buy one Ramly burger special at the pasar malam near my home. It used to cost $2.00 and $2.50 for the normal and special respectively, but now it cost 30 cents more for both types.

Ramly Burger Special Now $2.80!

The Ramly chicken burger wrapper with the Malaysia’s Halal logo. Actually inside is a beef Ramly burger with egg and cheese. No beef Ramly burger’s wrappers?

Ramly Burger Special Now $2.80!

Can you see the cheese and egg inside? I’m craving for more. I think I will buy again tomorrow.

The Meaning Of Retrenchment

22 Jul

The company that I had worked for the last seven years decided not to renew my contract because there is no more money left in producing DVD recorders for next year. Half of my colleagues had either left the company or are going to be transferred to the other departments and divisions of the company. Some of them are having their early retirement with their retrenchment benefits.

Within those seven years, I had tried to secure a stable employment at the company and other companies, but was unsuccessful. Nine more days I will be jobless and my main source of income is gone, cut off. Now I’m depending on my online incomes from Nuffnang, TLA and Google Adsense.

Why do someone do not want to hire me? Is it because of my resume? Or is it because of my high expectation salary? Or is it because of my age? Or is it because of my race and religion? I only received ONE interview (the interviewer had spied on me by asking one of my ex-colleague who is working there) after sending thousands of applications. For me, it’s their great loss of not employing me as now I got the opportunity to start a new career in a field that I have a whole lot more passion for.

Now I had a good reason to become a pro-blogger like John Chow. I hope with this, I will be a lot wealthier, happier and have a greater sense of freedom and purpose.

Bishan 5 Rooms Flat Almost 1/2 Million Singapore Dollar!

22 Jul

Last Friday, I received a pamphlet at the mosque after my Friday prayer. Someone is selling a 124sqm corner unit with 4 bedrooms at Bishan Blk 268. He claimed that there is no morning and evening sun, windy and quiet place. He is looking for a minority buyer since the Chinese ratio had been filled.

The 5 ‘I flat was valued at $485k and he is selling it at a price of $475k. There is also a referral fee of $2000.
