I had my birthday meal together with my family on Sunday at Por Kee Eating House, a well-known chinese tze char restaurant. Nothing lavish, just a simple evening together.

Here are some photos of the mouth-watering food:

To everyone who SMSed; facebooked; emailed; PMed; commented on my blog; or even wish me in person, happy birthday – a big THANK YOU. 🙂 Appreciate the gesture although the thought of getting another year older and none the wiser is not exactly that “happy” to me, haha.

Happy Birthday to…

Birthday celebration - Chipmunks style!
Birthday celebration - Chipmunks' style!

Me, my sister and Rachel! Yes, all three of us share the same birth date! Shocking?

Oh and yesterday was my best friend, Mark’s birthday. Somehow, most of my close friends and loved one have birth dates near to or on 26th October. Maybe it’s a Scorpio thing. 🙂

Single Fondue @ Andersen’s Ice Cream

Single Fondue
Single Fondue

Ah… the rising cost of living and the impending economic recession makes me feel shitty even when just eating a simple ice cream desert.

Rachel and I ordered a Single Fondue at Andersen’s Ice Cream yesterday. It was a very hot day and we wanted a cold desert to share between us. On the menu, the price is stated as S$9.90. After the 10 percent service charge and 7 percent GST, the bill comes to $11.60. Steep. Somehow, even ordering a small item like an ice cream makes me feel guilty for not being more frugal these days.

Are you feeling the heat too? 😦

Evidence Batman is Gay

Via EDMW. Here’s the piece of evidence which will answer the age old question of whether Batman is gay and having a secret affair with his crime-busting partner, Robin.

When faced with impending doom, all the other superheroes thought of their female loved ones. Only Batman had a very different thought going through his head. 🙂

Man jailed for life for hacking wife to death over facebook relationship status

Via The Inquirer. Serious. This shit is for real man, don’t play play. Facebook really can kill one. You can read the full report below:

Wayne is… facing life imprisonment

By Sylvie Barak: Friday, 17 October 2008, 3:38 PM

A SOUTH LONDON man has been banged up for life after stabbing his wife to death when she changed her Facebook relationship status to “single”.

34-year-old Wayne Forrester was apparently emotionally wounded when, after he moved out of their home, his wife Emma updated her profile to “single” and wrote she was “looking to meet men”. Talk about twisting the knife.

Forrester had purportedly left the house on suspicion that Emma was poking someone else after 15 years of what was described to the court as a “volatile marriage”.

High on cocaine and booze, Forrester drove back to their home in the middle of the night and began stabbing her with a kitchen knife and hacking at her with a meat cleaver as she slept.

The jury heard how Forrester was not being particularly social when he beat her, tore out clumps of her hair, and stabbed her again and again in the head and neck.

Neighbours called the cops after hearing screams and finding Wayne, covered in blood, sitting outside the house.

The court was told that, on the day before Emma was murdered, Wayne had called her parents to moan that her Facebook entry “made her look like a fool”. He later told police, “I loved Emma and felt totally devastated and humiliated about what she had done to me.” In our humble opinion, he could have had another stab at making the relationship work.

Instead, Forrester pleaded guilty to murder and has been ordered to serve a minimum term of 14 years.

Advanced Style – Elderly with Style

Check out this interesting blog showcasing photos of elderly folks caught in the street in stylish attire, no less loud or chic than teens, at least five decades younger than them.

Below are a few samples I like (pictures via Advanced Style):

Style also can evolve with ages.

Just for fun, who do you think are a few elderly figures with the best style in Singapore? Personally, I find the Executive Director of GIC and Chairman of SPH Holdings, Dr. Tony Tan‘s large framed glasses and comb-back silver hair quite an eclectic mix:

Any other nominees? 🙂
