Date with my buddy

I called my Buddy Jose and suggested 5 ways for our "date":

(1) Go East Coast Park to "watch" the sea and enjoy the scenery. We can read a book or listen to music by the beach

(2) Go Singapore Art Gallery for art exhibition, it is opened daily until 7pm

(3) Go Expo Singapore to attend the Food and Beverage Fair

(4) Go Novena Church which was renovated recently to look at their renovated church building and attend a Sermon to have a feel

(5) Movie date

Guess which one my Buddy choose?

Stay tune and I will update with photos of our outing, in the meanwhile have a good weekend everyone!

Lobsters liberation activity 龙虾放生活动

Today is the second time i joined the life liberation activity. At 2.30pm we boarded the ferry. I understand the lobsters and fishes we liberate are "hijacked" or bought while they are on the way to seafood restaurant from malaysia or either they are bought from the Wholesale Centre. I also understand from the staff that they will put oxygen tank and salt in the water tanks to ensure that the lobsters are well alive.

Before we reached the spot for liberation, as usual we chanted the mantra. After that we take turns to liberate the lobsters, i have a little phobia of shell animals like lobsters so the staff rendered some help to me in liberating.

After the liberation, refreshments were given out. Before end of the trip, we transfer the merits to all the sentient beings by chanting.

The ferry returned to the pier at around 4.20pm and that ends our activity.

Sharing a light hearted song - Please Mr Postman by Carpenters

I love the Carpenters! This is one light hearted song of Carpenters which I like. Just sharing.

In these days when mails and messages are sent electronically via SMS and Whatsapp, the role of Mr Postman is no longer as important as those days, oh how I miss those good old days.

Have a good week ahead, everyone!

Have you heard of this song before?

These are the lyrics.

"Please Mr. Postman"

Oh yes, wait a minute Mister Postman
Wait Mister Postman

Please Mister Postman, look and see
(Oh yeah)
If there's a letter in your bag for me
(Please, Please Mister Postman)
Why's it takin' such a long time
(Oh yeah)
For me to hear from that boy of mine

There must be some word today
From my boyfriend so far away
Please Mister Postman, look and see
If there's a letter, a letter for me

I've been standin' here waitin' Mister Postman

So patiently
For just a card, or just a letter
Sayin' he's returnin' home to me

(Mister Postman)
Mister Postman, look and see
(Oh yeah)
If there's a letter in your bag for me
(Please, Please Mister Postman)
Why's it takin' such a long time
(Oh yeah)
For me to hear from that boy of mine

So many days you passed me by
See the tears standin' in my eyes
You didn't stop to make me feel better
By leavin' me a card or a letter

(Mister Postman)
Mister Postman, look and see

(Oh yeah)
If there's a letter in your bag for me
(Please, Please Mister Postman)
Why's it takin' such a long time

(Why don't you check it and see one more time for me, you gotta)
Wait a minute
Wait a minute
Wait a minute
Wait a minute
(Mister Postman)
Mister Postman, look and see

(C'mon deliver the letter, the sooner the better)
Mister Postman

A visit to guan yin shan temple

Today @2pm i met up with my buddy jose to pay a visit to guan yin shan temple to make our offerings. Before that we went to ntuc supermarket to purchase our offerings of rice, vegetable oil and sugar etc. I bought 5kg of Song He Fragrance rice, a bottle of New Moon premium vegetable oil and a packet of SIS fine sugar whereas jose bought 10kg of Royal Umbrella rice, oil, sugar and 3-in-1 coffee. After that we trolleyed our puchases to the taxi stand and hailed a taxi to dunearn road.

We had a chance to chat with the Shi Fu for a short while and we stayed at the temple until 5pm, after that we took bus 170 to bugis and had our dinner there. As we do not have anything to buy after that so we headed home.

Mission accomplished *grin*

Here are some photos of the temple to share.

Interesting Advertisement

In the past, when I used to work for an advertising firm, one of our clients is Volvo. I have the chance to look at the many different advertisements my company produced for our client, some are rather interesting to look at. I like the font they used for the Volvo print advertisements.

Here I share one old print advertisement of Volvo which I found on the Internet.

Happy viewing.

Life Liberation Activity on CNY Day 4 (19 Feb, 2018)

My friends came to fetch me @8.45am to go to East Coast Park for life liberation. Before that, we went to fetch Shi Fu at Butterworth Lane. After that, we went to Seng Shiong Supermarket to buy the clams which we wanted to liberate. Sometimes we may even get scolded by the public as they said we bought all the clams and they are left with no clam to buy to eat, LOL. After the staff packed the clams, they brought them to the car and off we go to East Coast Park.

Before liberating, the Shi Fu and us chanted the Mantra. Then we released the clams into the Canal. After the activity, all of us went home.

It is a meaningful and joyful activity.
