Sentosa with Xiao Lan

Time really flies

Well, it is already very long since I update this blog. So many things have happened, and I don’t have a single free time to write down.

It have been sleepless tonight, so I thought of getting up, and write something.

Job searching

I am searching for a new job now, cos this job, is not good for any learning of new skills. I am working as a maintenance technician in a local hospital. And well, they just “washed out the almost entire previous batch, leaving two people behind. The job is simple, just change bulb and some small cleaning and that is all. When things breaks down, and spare parts is required, the engineer simply don’t approve the funds, and we have to dig our head out to think of a way to solve it. In the end, we come up with a temporary solution for a permanent problem. For technical people, let’s say in the flushing system, the swing rod is corroded, and when you press the handle, it doesn’t respond. This is because the swing rod, is halfway corroded, and the only way to solve it is by putting a washer, between the flushing handle and the valve seat. This is deemed as a temporary solution, but should the swing rod give way, the assembly have to be removed, and replaced. This ends up to be a more job.

Even the escalator and lift contractors knew about the problem we face. They have complained about the technical fault, and have written recommended repairs and given the quotations. Yet, it is not approved, and should the things drag on, the entire escalator may one day give way.

Anyway, two of my colleagues have started to look for new job, and I am also starting to look for one.


I brought xiao lan to sentosa on the 6th May. I think this is the best memory for her, cos I did not spell a single word, until when we reached the cable car station. I like to take the cable car to sentosa. Cos it is very fun in it, and it goes straight all the way into the hot spot, where there are many amenities around. I have a resort reserved, and it is on the 3rd floor, with a sea view, and a swimming pool. It is a NTUC resort in sentosa. Should I spend 3 times more the price, I can get my butt into the Shangri-La hotel and enjoy the view fully.

Sentosa looks the same I visited some years ago, and the only thing that interests me is the beach. It is really clean. And swimming in it is certainly more better than the one in Sembawang Beach.

Somewhere in palawan beach, there are two wooden towers, where people can climb up, and enjoy the sea view. I like it but a pity it was dark and there is nothing to see except the ships.

Thank God for the free ride of trams and buses in sentosa. Because to get from one point to another point of sentosa, is really far away. And also, the operating hours of the trams, are extended to the wee hour of the night. Up to now, I still don’t understand. Why the teenagers who are spending the night, struggle to be awake, and playing things in the hall? Hmm….

If you ask me what is the best attraction, I like the Luge ride. Yup yup. Luge ride is really fun. It is a small car, that goes from top of the hill in sentosa, to the bottom. Hmm… it was the first time xiao lan playing, so she doesn’t get the hang of it. As for me, I got used o it the first time. A pity, it was an expensive ride.

I think Xiao Lan is very happy with the trip to sentosa, because she have never been before, and each time, she can sees it only, and now that she have seen it, she must be very happy.

4 more Clown loach

This is regret to say, that some of the cardinal tetra, somehow got their way into the sewer system of the fish tank, and got sucked up to the filter. Thus, the number of cardinal, got from 10 over fishes, until only 4. I don’t get anymore cardinal fish anymore. They always hide away, and refuses to be seen, or even seen feeding.

For clown loach, they like tow swim around,a nd really fast. And they are always hungry, and ready to feed the moment there is food.

Xiao lan fishes the clown loach up from the tank in the aquarium shop. And yup, it really is fun, and one of the clown loach is a small one. After they were let into the fish tank, they somehow hide away, probably they are unfamiliar with the environment.

Thankfully, two clown loaches in the tank went and look at the four new members and they followed the 2 master around the tank. Now, they are swimming in the new houses, and happily as they swim up and down, and the dory and algae eater doesn’t seems to care, and go about their own chores.
