Tram ride in Night Safari

You all should seriously visit the Night Safari once in your lifetime especially Singaporeans. I went on the tram ride that brings you around the habitats, with presenter explaining all the different animals and their behaviours.

Yes, yes, we do get freebies as one of the tenants there but I do not mind paying if they ask me to.

~

I tell you......It was so so COOL !!! I wanna go walking in the trails the next time round and hope 'A' will do it together with me. I believe there will be more "Wows and Ahhs" as we walk pass the habitats for the good physical and brain workout and the fabulous time we spend together.

Being an animal lover, I relish at all the beautiful animals in the kingdom and their adaptability and freedom. Yet aother side of me detest the fact that most of them are in such dangerous positions worldwide, ironically due to man and their ambitions, of which I am part of. Nevertheless, I'm glad that there are still people who care enough to "encage" them in a man-made world so as to preserve their lives and their species. Personally, I am now looking at how I can help these animals, be it a cat/dog/lion/elephant/etc.

Nibbles @ Singapore Night Safari

After two months of suspension for you...I'm back to post exhilarating news. After much presentations, we will be starting a new branch at the Singapore Night Safari. Yea!!!

Seriously it's really a miracle since we were competing with the BIG BOYS... but unfortunately, this means more work for us.

Another notes, I would suggest Singaporeans who would like to try the fish spa go to our Chinatown branch for it instead of the Singapore Night Safari since the prices are meant more for touring groups of people.

Anyway, the supposedly fully furnished shop without all the decorative trimmings.

Doesn't it look dainty.... *giggling and covering mouth*

Real and Fake doctor fish - all the rave online

I have previously stated in my earlier post, there are real and fake doctor fish spa treatments.

I am really glad to know that at last there are people who can see and feel the difference and are speaking up for the real fish spa treatments so do not be scammed by the fake ones.

http://reviews.pinkelle.com/2008/05/09/garra-rufa-or-not/

http://www.slipperylittlesuckers.com.my/articles.php?subaction=showfull&id=1197972934&archive=&start_from=&ucat=4&

The real 'doctor fish', garra rufa have evolved to feed on dead skin cells due to their natural living environment when they are first discovered in hot springs in Turkey. Hot springs as you have called it have Hot spring waters up to 40 degrees Celsius and most bacteria or plankton do not survive under such hot temperatures hence, they have no choice but to feed on dead skin cells. These dead skin cells in layman's terms are just a small pesky blob on proteins, fats and minerals that are useless to us and removing it means only benefit (giving space for new skin cells to grow) and no harm. But for the real doctor fishes, even though these dead skin cells are not much of nutrition, at least they are food and it's better off than starving. :P

For the fake doctor fish, it is more or less like animal abuse. Just starve the fishes for a couple of days and they eat anything you give them, heavily calloused hand and feet including.

I'm so glad we have been using the real ones from the start hence, no case for being startled by people exclaiming our fishes are fake. Ha.

Starving Dog as "Art"

HSI
Millions of street dogs like this one
need help.
Word has spread around the world of a 2007 incident in which Costa Rican artist Guillermo Vargas featured a starving street dog as “art” in a Nicaraguan gallery. Reportedly, Vargas wanted to make the point that the starving dog on the street is ignored but, when placed in an art gallery, becomes visible, leading to outrage.

After seeing images of the dog on Youtube and other websites, thousands of angry people have signed online petitions demanding that Vargas be excluded from the upcoming Central American Visual Arts Biennale show in Honduras.

According to local animal welfare organizations, the dog was in a state of starvation when he was captured from the street for display in the exhibit—not unlike millions of other street dogs in developing countries. HSI has been informed that the dog spent one day in the exhibit and later escaped the gallery.

Although conflicting reports exist, we condemn Vargas’ actions and the use of live animals in exhibits such as this. Even if he wished to bring the larger picture of the state of street animals to the attention of the public, exploiting an already-suffering animal is unacceptable. An animal welfare organization in Honduras is keeping close watch on the case and assures us that Vargas will not repeat his objectionable exhibit there.

Unfortunately, the lack of animal cruelty laws in Nicaragua means that no charges can be sought for the earlier event. HSI is currently assessing how we can assist the Nicaraguan government in developing such laws.

Excerpt courtesy of HSI

How can a sick jerk like that be allowed it scot free and perhaps have the chance to contribute to the art society by repeating the same exhibition again? This is absolutely revolting.

I seriously rather believe in those hearsay and not give this bastard another chance at abusing and killing another harmless poor pup that is just minding his/her own business roaming the streets, looking for scraps.

How can a human being, made of flesh and blood, starve a dog for ART, and claim himself an artist. I would spit at all those people (if i see them) who go for the exhibition to look at the poor mutt, sympathizing its plight yet do nothing about it !!???

All beings are humane in their own ways and deserve to live. There is no one living in this world that was born and deserved to die in such a cruel way. We, as human beings are so-called of higher morals and intelligence should know better than to torture a poor animal to death. We have a choice to decide, to be benevolent to animals that do not pose a threat to us when we don't provoke them. We can survive on our own ways of survival to improve our lives; we plant, we can treat our own water, we have chef to cook up fabulous world class cuisines, we have designer apparels, bags and shoes. But the animals CAN'T and DO NOT have these privileges, why can't we LEAVE THE ANIMALS ALONE to survive on their own ways ??!!!

It has happened no doubt of my rage. However, to show my anger and to support the millions of people who boycott the stupid, idiotic jackass of the century, I've signed the petition online against him. If you feel the same rage as I do or more sign the petition.

These animals cannot speak but can only suffer in silence, but they have the right to survive. One day when he/she dies, it is answerable to GOD because the BLOOD is on Their HANDS.

All dogs go to Heaven

Inspired by a story by: Earl Hamner Jr.


An old man and his dog were walking down a dirt road with fences on either side.
The country they were traveling through was strange to them and a little unsettling.

On both the left and right the man saw a magnificent panorama of fields, streams, hills and valleys - just the sort of country a man and his dog can only dream of - but all long the fences on either side large "NO TRESPASSING - KEEP OUT" signs were posted every few feet, so they walked on.

Soon the two companions came to a magnificent gate chased with gold and encrusted with precious stones. An imposing figure in a flowing robe of the purest white stood there beside it.
 

"Welcome to Heaven" the man in the robe said.
 

The old man was stunned beyond words. He hadn't even realized that he was dead! At least, he thought, his hound, the closest friend he had in all the world, had made the trip with him. With a sigh and a smile, the old man started through the gate with his dog at his side, but the gatekeeper stopped him.
 

"Dogs aren't allowed." he said. "I'm sorry but he can't come in here with you. He'll have to stay out on the road."
 

"What kind of Heaven won't allow dogs?" asked the old man. "If he can't come in, then I won't either. I'll just stay out here with him. He's been my friend all his life. I can't walk away from him now."
 

"Suit yourself," said the robed figure, "but I have to warn you, the Devil's on this road and he'll try to sweet talk you into his place. He'll promise you anything to get you inside, but the dog can't go there either. If you won't leave the dog, you'll spend Eternity on this road. There's no room in Heaven or in Hell for a man's dog."

So the old man and his dog went on their way.
 

In time, they came to a rundown fence with a gap in it - no gate, just a hole where a few boards had fallen off or been removed. Another old man, humble in appearance, was fishing in a pond just inside the fence. The man and his dog stopped at the gap. "Excuse me, Sir", the old man said. "My dog and I have been on this road for a long time now. We're getting mighty tired. Mind if we come in and sit for a spell?"


"Of course!" said the man inside the fence. " Come right on through.
 

There's some cold water under that tree over there. He gestured toward a huge old oak tree with majestically spreading branches. At it's roots a bubbling spring rose, cool and refreshing. "Make yourselves comfortable.
You're welcome to stay as long as you please."
 

"You're sure my dog can come in, now?" the old man asked. "The man down the road said dogs weren't allowed anywhere around here."
 

"Would you come in if you had to leave the dog?" asked the fisherman.
 

"No sir, I would not!" the old man replied. "That's why I didn't go to Heaven back down the road. The man there said my dog couldn't come in with me." He shrugged and continued. "We'll be spending Eternity on this road, I suppose, just the two of us. A glass of cold water and some shade would be mighty fine right about now, but I won't come in if it means my friend here has to wait on the road."
 

The man behind the fence smiled a big smile and said, "Welcome to Heaven, friend."
 

"Hold on, now! You mean THIS is Heaven?" asked the old man, quite surprised. "Dogs ARE allowed? How come that fellow down the road told me different?"
 

"That was the Devil back there." St. Peter replied, for indeed, the old, ordinary seeming man behind the fence was none other. "He gets all the people who are willing to give up a lifelong companion for a little comfort. They soon find out their mistake, but by then it's too late."
 

"The dogs can still come in here," he continued, " but the selfish people stay back there. God wouldn't allow dogs to be banned from Heaven. After all, He created them to be man's companions in life, how could he separate them in death?"
 

A smile that went from ear to ear broke out on the old man's face. He reached down to his side, ruffled the fur on his dog's head and said, "C'mon, boy!" And with that, the two of them passed through to the other side of the fence.
 

The two of them walked up the gentle rise to where the shade of the oak and the cool water from the spring awaited their coming.

This story and versions of it have been circulating around the internet for a 
few years now. The original author of this story was Earl Hamner Jr. written circa 1962.  
The story was first told by Rod Serling in episode 84 (The Hunt) of the TV 
series: The Twilight Zone Episode.

The original story went like this:

Hyder Simpson and his dog Rip dive into a lake after a raccoon. Only the 
raccoon emerges. He and Rip awaken the next morning next to the lake. When 
he gets home he finds that no one can see or hear him, not even his wife - 
they all think he's dead. He finds a fence beside the graveyard and follows 
it to a gate. The man at the gate tells him it is the gate to Heaven, but 
dogs aren't allowed. Hyder takes Rip and leaves. Further down the road he 
meets an angel. The angel explains that the gate was actually the gate to 
Hell, and Rip wasn't allowed in because he could have smelled the brimstone.

NOTE: Earl Hammer Jr. also created The Waltons.

Insight

Just a little insight to some of my thoughts...

Just another week had passed and the world met with another disaster, the Sichuan Earthquake.

It makes me think how vulnerable, we human beings are, succumbing to the forces of nature. From the land, sea and sky that once sustain animals and us, comes the power to destroy anything that breathes.

I should really further prioritize my live, living and loving it to the fullest, before one day, I regret and there will be no turning back. Just as Mark Twain so aptly put it:

"Time and tide waits for no man"

China earthquake

Thousands dead in Chinese quake

Parents wait outside Juyuan Middle School in Sichuan, China, where 900 students were buried
Parents wait anxiously outside the flattened Juyuan Middle School


A powerful earthquake has killed at least 10,000 people in China's south-western Sichuan province, up to 5,000 of them in just one county.

Many more have been killed and injured in other parts of the country after the 7.8-magnitude quake struck at 1428 local time (0628 GMT).

At least 50 bodies have been recovered from the rubble of a school where an estimated 900 students were buried.

President Hu Jintao has urged "all-out" efforts to rescue victims.

Search teams were sent to the area but struggled to get through because routes were blocked.

The BBC's Michael Bristow, in nearby Chongqing, said torrential rains had also prevented helicopters gaining access.

With communication links down, he says there is still no real indication of the death toll at the epicentre, in Wenchuan county, about 92km (57 miles) from Chengdu, Sichuan's provincial capital.

'Major disaster'

One of the worst-hit areas appears to be Beichuan county, part of the Mianyang city municipal area, about 50km from the epicentre.

Some 80% of buildings there were reported to have been destroyed, leaving between 3,000 and 5,000 people dead and up to 10,000 injured.

Meanwhile hundreds of people were reported to have been buried in two collapsed chemical plants in Shifang in Sichuan, and at least five other schools were reported to be in ruins.

More than 150 people were killed in the other provinces of Gansu and Shaanxi, and in Chongqing municipality, Xinhua said.

REPORTED DEATHS
Sichuan province: 10,000
Shaanxi province: 61
Gansu province: 48
Chongqing municipality: 50
Yunnan province: 1
As reported by Xinhua, 2200 GMT Monday

The death toll could turn out to be much higher once the damage in Wenchuan county - the epicentre - is assessed, says BBC China analyst Shirong Chen.

The area is very rugged, full of mountains and valleys and a number of roads are connected with bridges from one mountain top to the next, he says.

A top official from the region, Wang Bin, appealed for outside help quickly.

"We are in urgent need of tents, food, medicine and satellite communications equipment through air drop," he said.

"We also need medical workers to save the injured people here."

There were fears that China's programme to save the endangered giant panda may have been affected.

 We were in quite a narrow street where everything just started shaking... people were panicking... It was mayhem 
Casper Oppenhuisdejong
BBC reader in Chengdu

Wenchuan county is home to the Wolong Nature Reserve, the country's leading research and breeding base for pandas - but the centre could not be reached by phone.

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, who flew to Chengdu immediately, said China needed "calm, confidence, courage and strong leadership".

"We will definitely overcome this major disaster," he promised.

US President George W Bush expressed condolences to victims' families, while Japan offered to send aid.

The Chinese Red Cross has sent hundreds of tents and thousands of blankets to the afflicted area.

Cries for help

There were harrowing reports from the scene of a school collapse in Dujiangyan city - just south-east of the epicentre - where 900 students were buried and 50 dead.

Teenagers buried beneath the rubble of the three-storey Juyuan Middle School building were struggling to break free, while others were crying out for help, state news agency Xinhua reported.

Parents were watching as cranes excavated the site. Villagers rushed to help with the rescue.

Two girls said they escaped because they had "run faster than others".

Dozens of aftershocks have been reported since the quake, which was felt in Beijing, 1,545km (960 miles) away, and the Thai capital Bangkok, 1,800km (1,200 miles) away.

RECENT CHINA QUAKES
March, 2008: 7.2 quake in Xinjiang - damage limited
February 2003: 6.8 quake in Xinjiang - at least 94 dead, 200 hurt
January 1998: 6.2 quake in rural Hebei - at least 47 dead, 2,000 hurt
April 1997: 6.6 quake hits Xinjiang - 9 dead, 60 hurt
January 1997: 6.4 quake in Xinjiang - 50 dead, 40 hurt

The earthquake was China's worst since 242,000 people were killed in 1976 by the Tangshan quake.

Sichuan province is the most populated part of China - home to 87 million people.

The provincial capital Chengdu, which has a population of more than 10 million people, was comparatively lightly damaged - though Xinhua cited an official with the local seismological bureau saying 45 people were killed there.

Some 5,000 troops have been sent to help with relief work.

The BBC's Quentin Somerville says this is probably the most significant natural disaster to hit China in recent memory, but that the Chinese army has a good record of mobilising and getting people to safety.

He also says it is one of the most open and speedy responses to an emergency he has ever seen from Chinese state media.

The quake was felt as far away as Beijing, he says, meaning millions of people will feel connected to the disaster and will be watching TV screens closely to see how the government responds.

Can you imagine how terribly depressing it is, if you are one of the survivors and the people who are crushed to death are people you know and/or loved. I would rather die than survive this catastrophe. At Least the Chinese are more realistic and receptive to outside help.

Unbelievable

Almost a week has passed and the burmese are still holding on to their so-called principles. Slowly and indirectly, they are killing their people by not letting aid into the country be it from foreign countries or local volunteers.


What's good of the outcome of which political party wins the upper hand when the country is left tattered and torn ?!!! Ignorant people without foresight... Argh....

Myanmar Cyclone Nargis

Over 200 dead as cyclone devastates Myanmar

Sun May 4, 2008 5:13pm IST

By Aung Hla Tun

YANGON (Reuters) - More than 200 people have been killed in military-ruled Myanmar by a Category 3 cyclone that ripped through Yangon and the Irrawaddy delta, where it flattened two towns, officials and state media said on Sunday.

Packing winds of 190 km per hour when it hit on Saturday morning, Cyclone Nargis devastated the former Burma's leafy main city, littering the streets with overturned cars, fallen trees and debris from battered buildings.

"Utter war zone," one Yangon-based diplomat said in an email to Reuters in Bangkok. "Trees across all streets. Utility poles down. Hospitals devastated. Clean water scarce."

A government official in Naypyidaw, the ruling general's new capital 390 km to the north, said the latest death toll was more than 200.

The BBC, citing a report on state television, said 243 people were dead and more than 20,000 homes were destroyed. State MRTV later said the death toll was 241, including 19 in Yangon and 222 killed in the hardest-hit Irrawaddy division southwest of the former capital.

Official newspapers in Yangon said only one in four buildings were left standing in Laputta and Kyaik Lat, two towns deep in the rice-producing delta and accessible mainly by boat. There were no details of casualties.

In Yangon, many roofs were ripped off even sturdy buildings, suggesting damage would be severe in the shanty towns that sit on the outskirts of the sprawling riverside city of 5 million.

Foreign aid workers, whose movements are restricted by the ruling military junta, had not managed to reach many impoverished areas to assess the impact.

"I have never seen anything like it," one retired government worker told Reuters. "It reminded me of when Hurricane Katrina hit the United States."

Although the sun was shining by Sunday morning, the former capital was without power and water, and food prices had doubled, with many storeholders unsure of when they would be able to replenish stocks. Most shops had sold out of candles.

An Electricity Board official said it was impossible to know when the power supply -- hit-and-miss at the best of times in one of Asia's poorest countries -- would be restored.

"We still have to clear the mess," the official, who did not want to be named, said.

United Nations disaster experts said it would be days before the full extent of the damage was known in a country ruled since 1962 by secretive and ruthless military regimes.

Bunkered down in Naypyidaw, the junta's top brass will almost certainly have avoided the worst of the storm.

The military authorities declared a disaster in five states and state media carried footage of soldiers clearing trees from roads and Prime Minister Thein Sein, a lieutenant-general, meeting people sheltering in a Buddhist pagoda.

DEATH TOLL COULD CLIMB

The death toll could climb yet further as authorities slowly make contact with outlying towns and villages along the coast, where weather forecasters had predicted a storm surge of up to 3.5 m.

They are also likely to uncover victims beneath some of the buildings that collapsed in Yangon under the force of the cyclone, which had been gathering steam for several days in the tropical waters of the Bay of Bengal.

"It was a direct hit on a major city," said Terje Skavdal, regional head of the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA).

"The government did warn people to stay inside and that might have had an impact, but the material damage is enormous for sure," Skavdal said.

The U.N. had made an offer of assistance but was yet to receive a response from the junta, he added.

It remains to be seen what impact the storm will have on a referendum on an army-drafted constitution scheduled for May 10.

The charter is part of a "roadmap to democracy" meant to culminate in multiparty elections in 2010 and end nearly five decades of military rule. The opposition and Western governments say it allows the army to retain too much control.

An official at Yangon International Airport said all incoming flights had been diverted to the second city of Mandalay, in the middle of the southeast Asian nation, and all departures from Yangon had been cancelled.

Thai Airways in Bangkok said flights would not resume before Monday.

State media said four vessels sank in Yangon harbour, and jetties in ports had come loose.

By 0900 GMT, Nargis had tracked northeast into northern Thailand, where it was dumping large amounts of rain but with dramatically reduced wind speeds.

My mouth dropped open reading this on the news. It is utterly heart-wrenching to see, disasters of that scale hitting developing countries who may be struggling with their own country's financial and political status.

A conversation between a Professor and a Student in regard of GOD.

An atheist professor of philosophy speaks to his class on the problem science has with God, The Almighty. He asks a believer...
Prof: So you believe in God?
Student: Absolutely, sir.
Prof: Is God good?
Student: Sure.
Prof: Is God all-powerful?
Student: Yes.
Prof: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to God to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill, but God didn't. How is this God good then? Hmm?
(Student is silent.)
Prof: You can't answer, can you? Let's start again, young fella. Is God good?
Student: Yes.
Prof: Is Satan good?
Student: No.
Prof: Where does Satan come from?
Student: From...God...
Prof: That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?
Student: Yes.
Prof: Evil is everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything, correct?
Student: Yes.
Prof: So who created evil?
(Student does not answer.)
Prof: Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don't they?
Student: Yes, sir.
Prof: So, who created them?
(Student has no answer.)
Prof: Science says you have 5 senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son, have you ever seen God?
Student: No, sir.
Prof: Tell us if you have ever heard your God?
Student: No, sir.
Prof: Have you ever felt your God, tasted your God, smelt your God? Have you ever had any sensory perception of God for that matter?
Student: No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't.
Prof: Yet you still believe in Him?
Student: Yes.
Prof: According to empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, science says your God doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student: Nothing. I have only my faith.
Prof: Yes. Faith. That is the problem science has.
Student: Professor, is there such a thing as heat?
Prof: Yes.
Student: And is there such a thing as cold?
Prof: Yes.
Student: No, sir. There isn't.
(The lecture theatre becomes very quiet with this turn of events.)
Student: Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat, but we don't have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can't go any farther after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.
(There is pin-drop silence in the lecture theatre.)
Student: What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?
Prof: Yes. What is night if there isn't darkness?
Student: You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light, but if you have no light constantly, you have nothing, and it's called darkness, isn't it? In reality, darkness isn't. If it were, you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?
Prof: So, what is the point you are making, young man?
Student: Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.
Prof: Flawed? Can you explain how?
Student: Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life, and then there is death, a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, science can't even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor. Do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?
Prof: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course I do.
Student: Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?
(The Professor shakes his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument is going.)
Student: Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an ongoing endeavour, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher?
(The class is in uproar.)
Student: Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor's brain?
(The class breaks out into laughter.)
Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures?
(The room is silent. The professor stares at the student, his face unfathomable.)
Prof: I guess you'll have to take them on faith, son.
Student: That is it, sir. The link between man and God is faith. That is all that keeps things moving and alive.

Nephew's birthday

Happy Labour Day! and Happy birthday to my nephew, Ryan, an absolutely funny and cute terrorist at home. 


Had a great dinner with my family at Bo Kee restaurant, that specialises in Cantonese cuisine. One of my aunt's favourite eateries. It's located opposite the Tiong Bahru market and food centre. No photos to show since we were all famished and gorging ourselves with food. kekekeke

Pet cafe

Brought the girls to Earth Cafe @ Upper Thomson yesterday night. 


Fabulous experience with this well kept cafe with friendly staff. Four stars out of five. *thumbs up* 

Tasty human food and the dog food looks nice too just that I did not try the taste. The girls were jumping so much and eating from other dog's bowl that I cannot bear to keep them waiting for their food too long. 

Overall: Recommended for dog lovers.

Undecisive

Should I take up Muay Thai or just continue with my Yoga sessions? (I have abandoned them 2 years ago since school started) Or should I just pay for gym membership in the same club as my colleague and workout together?


'A' says people who really want to exercise do not need expensive gym memberships as they are motivated to do it themselves. People who go gym are either people whom fit the phrase "monkey see, monkey do" or treat it as a form of mating place where they can impress the opposite gender... Then again, personally it's pretty true as well but I may just pay so i can use the sauna and observe all the ahem hunky guys.... *runs away before getting killed by 'A' *

For now... It's procastinating time....

Freaking amazing



It's quite scary but amazing at the same time. An oxymoron isn't it?!

Chased and chopped like a chicken

Chopper attack after complaint over cold chicken rice
Incident stuns diners at Smith Street
April 09, 2008

A CHICKEN rice chef allegedly went berserk on Sunday night in Chinatown, slashing a customer with a chopper after he had complained that the chicken served was too cold, reported the Lianhe Wanbao.


The incident happened at 8.40pm, just as the dinner crowd was out in full force at the stall in Smith Street. Stall helpers had taken back the customer's dish after his complaint, allegedly dunking his chicken into hot soup to warm it up. They also told the customer he need not pay for his meal. But the man, who was there with his girlfriend, remained unsatisfied. Eyewitnesses said he walked up to the glass counter separating the kitchen from the dining area and scolded the chef, and allegedly challenged him to a fight.


One eyewitness, Mr Tan K C, a lawyer in his 40s, claimed: 'The customer was hurling vulgarities, scolding the chef's father and mother.'


The chef kept silent and continued working as the dinner crowd looked on stunned.
He ignored the customer's taunts but, as the man turned to leave with his girlfriend, the chef snapped. He charged outside with his chopper and allegedly ambushed the customer as he was walking down the road, slashing him on his back and thigh.



CHEF TURNS HIMSELF IN


The customer collapsed, bleeding profusely, as his hysterical girlfriend scrambled around for tissue and cloth to stop the bleeding. Eyewitnesses said the chef looked shocked afterwards and fled, before returning later to turn himself in. In the meantime, the customer was taken to the Singapore General Hospital (SGH).


The chef started working at the stall about four years ago. Helpers at the chicken rice shop said the chef would often buy food for them or treat them when he won the lottery.


'He was always joking around,' said Mr Andy Puah, 26, a stall assistant.


Mr Tan said the customer was about 1.8m tall and weighed about 90kg. A police spokesman said they recived a call at 8.40pm about a fight at Smith Street. When they arrived, a man in his 40s was found with injuries on his back and thigh. The spokesman added that the police later arrested a man in his 60s.


Investigations are ongoing.

Personally, I think the customer had it coming. What's the big deal right? Just a cold plate of rice or chicken. The stall people had already offered to heat it up and best of all, he got his chicken rice for FREE. What more to ask right?!

You may argue that maybe the customer had a bad day or had a big fight with the girlfriend or something earlier on or whatever, but that does not give him the right to scold someone's parents, best part over a miserly plate of chicken rice! Who would not be pissed immediately? I would definitely F*** him big time, stupid jerk! If he had the guts, why not just wait for him to get of work and challenge him face to face or even better complainhis attitude to the boss or someone who could do something about it.



Apparently, he's just one of those people who belong to the group NATO "No Action Talk Only". ha! He deserved it.



Anyways, apparently, I think the chef had a even worst day than him and it's just his luck. *smirk*

It's pretty tiring being a hawker already, with all the heat and oil and picky people.

(I'm one of them sometimes. runs away in fear of being stoned)



To ice the cake, this jerk comes along and the carefully buried anger and frustration got let loose, the volcano erupted.



I'm not encouraging the venting of anger in such a violent manner, however, I think that one should be able to manage your emotions properly. Attend anger management class if the need arises. :P
