I was just strolling along Orchard road earlier this evening at about 10.30pm and a group of people standing around a zebra crossing between Lucky Plaza and the Rolex building caught my eye. I knew something was not right. As I approached the area, I saw a champagne-gold Toyota Altis crashed right into a pedestrian barrier, at the road which has the traffic flow apposite to the car’s direction.

As you can see from the last picture.. imagine if the barrier wasn’t there. The car could have gone for alot more distance, and injured/killed people as well! No relevant civil servants were present at the scene. The driver must be somewhere there disguising himself as a on-looker.. LOL!

Despite this news flooding the “blog-lines” this morning, I had to post this to show my grief for the king whom I started listening from much younger days. His tunes were simply awesome, and I got hooked to all his albums in no time. I started with his Dangerous album, and backtracked to Bad album and also the Thriller album. I moved forward to Blood on the Dance Floor, HIStory and so on.

Paramedics were called to the singer’s home around midday local time on Thursday after he stopped breathing. He was pronounced dead two hours later after arriving at hospital in full cardiac arrest.

Speaking on behalf of Jackson’s family, his brother, Jermaine, said doctors had tried to resuscitate the star for more than an hour without success.

He added: “The family request that the media please respect our privacy during this tough time.”

“And Allah be with you Michael always. I love you.”

Jackson, who had a history of health problems, had been due to begin a series of comeback concerts in the UK on 13 July.

Ok.. I knew many of us saw this coming. From the moment we had out mobile phones from China, followed  by food, vehicles and probably almost anything else. We also know that stuffs made in China suffers from quality and safety. Think about the excess dangerous chemicals asserted into food products!

The economy is so bad and cheap labour is treasured right now. Even planes are being made in China! I understand that safety and quality is paramount when building planes for passenger in particularly. Even a 0.5% crash-rate is considered disastrous for any airline. Well, Airbus decided to assemble its A320 plane in China.

AIRBUS delivered its first plane assembled outside Europe to its Chinese owner yesterday as the world’s largest plane maker and rival Boeing seek growth in major developing markets to combat weak demand at home. Another 10 planes will be assembled this year in China and production there will be ramped up to four aircraft per month by the end of 2011.

Airbus began assembling the A320 in the port city of Tianjin, near Beijing, in September from parts shipped from Europe.

The plane maker has estimated China will need more than 3,000 large aircraft by 2025, including 180 super-jumbo passenger jets.

One of my friends actually called such planes as “Flying Coffins!” Well.. we can only hope for the best. Will you select your airline/tickets based on where the plane is assembled?

I was at Suntec City last weekend for a sale and happened to use one of the toilets. Being a convention center at a strategic location, it’s a pretty “high-class” place compared to your favorite hawker center toilet. Nevertheless,  here’s what I found written on the wall of a cubicle:

It’s quite common to see this in certain toilets, but what amazed me is the conditions this guy is setting. No fat guys, no private number, and finally no Indians! It’s totally hilarious. Probably it’s the color that turns him off. I guess he hasn’t eaten chocolate bars before :P The first thing that came into my mind is Russel Peters, where he quotes in one of his shows: “We are Indians and we are gay!”

Anyone wanna call the above number? Not me.. I don’t meet one of his condition and I’m certainly not gay.
