Sunday.......

afternoon went out with family....at least now mrs joining us for outing as she is better now...in 3rd Trimester liao....days are getting closer and closer.. to new addition...in our family....



also Mrs made a comment i can open a Toy shop already....took 960 to Little India Station and cross over to take a bus to UE square...over at the bus stop opposite Little India Station...the open grass field is filled with Cows..!!...



Again made a trip to United Square to get a extra set of the nissan skyline vol1 and vol2 ... afterwhich we made our way to Orchard Road by MRT


Going down to Orchard we stopped by Somerset Station...we needed to do 2 things...
1)sign up a new mobile line and renew my cable internet contract to Qualify for the Starhub Canon Video Cam Promo
2)Collect Huggies backpack at Singapore Post Office at Killiney Road ...

In the end spent nearly 2 hrs at Starhub center at Ihub...and managed to be the last few to be eligible for the Free Canon Video Cam Promo..also got a New V3 to replace my old mobile...i go for cheap phone.. $98 only......but missed exchanging the huggies backpack ( as Singapore Post Office closed at 4 pm) ..mrs was a bit fustrated as weather was hot and we were all hot and sweaty....spent some time in OG Orchard to cool down and get some essential baby stuffs.....Going to use Avent Brand items liao...Marcus started with Piegon...


Time was already 530 pm...so decided to take dinner at the hawker street corner beside Meriden Singapore..


After filling up tummys...told mrs...time neither here or there...lets go SunTec to walk..... :) by the time we called it a night and returned back home ...9 pm...

Saturday... TRU

warehouse sale at United Square.....2nd time to United Square and i still am amazed at the number of children theme shops there......

Arrived there about 1:30 pm and no crowd at the TRU sales....items were cheap...StarWars..etc...i got myself some Tomicas...Cheap .....and also a 1:18 scale HotWheels Nissan Z...



The Nissan Z was bought from Unite Square TRU sale $20 and the other car at the bottom from the Mattel warehouse sale last week at The Concourse $30 .. if i were to get them from retail ..would cost me more about $49.90 for the Nissan and 69.90 for the Maserati


The Tomicas i bought..the nissan skyline set was cheap..in the end i got 2 sets....not bad wor...


by the time i got home... was about 4 pm..and Marcus was so tired that he slept on the way home on the bus....

Last Tuesday brought him back to the doc again as his cough was recurring again...doctor was so worried ..so were we...doc said he will be prescibing 2nd level medicine and if it does not work..Monday Labout day have to bring him back to him for a revive...by Thursday he recovered..but the Anitbotics has to finish the full course....

$500 carrot in liao

earlier than expected... no wonder i see long queues at ATM forming...all drawing out the $500 in case govt change mind...lol....long and tired week in office..imagine last weekend also got activated by customer ..had to work by phone over last weekend..damm boring leh......

business are smart also hor...if you notice the papers.. OG , Seiyu / Taka are having 20% sales...so coincidence....and TRU is also having a warehouse sale on Hasboro / Mattel / bandai items at United Square.

this week had to do all my staffs appriasal...also my boss have not done mine...but got the letter liao.. :) ....7 yrs and at least i am somewhere....like i always tell my staffs...wherever you work..its the boss that matters most....

Marcus did a horrible thing last night....i was clearing up the place and i noticed his number of toy cars were lesser...and i thought he had thrown the cars all over the place....mrs told me his toy box was near the drainage hole...and to my horror...i opened the drainage hole in the kitchen..and there they were.....nearly 19 pcs of them....



i screamed ...and took them out one by one..and soak them in Dynamo water to get rid of the smell....Marcus!!!...boys will be boys....

Also bought a bike on Thursday from Carrefore Suntec...and guess what...no taxi wanted to pick me up upon seeing my bike...even those that stopped after realising i have a bike gave fucking excuses like boot no space...fuck....if boot no space dun be a fucking taxi driver....so what did i do in the end...cycle from Temasek Ave back ome to Bukit Panjang...luckily i know the roads well..i cut across from Suntec to Bugis..and from there on ...cycled on Bukit Timah road all the way...straight slopeless road....took me an hour to get home.....been a long time since i cycled that far...guess it must have been 20km...

Marcus is happy....

i guess must be very happy...

was surfing the web last night and saw this electric jeep this lady was selling...wanted to buy one for Marcus ... the sort of electric car which runs on a 6V battery....this lady was selling it for $49 in Yahoo auctions..so i bidded and won the jeep for $52...she said that the jeep is in very good condition and has not been brought outside of home to play....but thing is the battery cannot hold the charge....as far as i know this sort of battery are not ex..the most $20 ...so i decided to get the jeep....

Won the auction on Friday night...and borrowed my Parent's car to pick up the Jeep... as she was staying in the east side..

Brought Jeep home..Marcus was happy..and i also bought a spare battery in case its really the battery that was spoilt...but i found out that it was the charger that was actually faulty...could not charge the car...luckily i have those lead acid battery charger which i use to charger my heli's field battery...and i managed to charge the battery full...

So in actual fact the battery was ok ..and the original charger she used was spoilt...

so for $52 i cant complain much...a new one would cost about $200 for a car this size





Also after which we went to town...again only daddy and Marcus..as mummy was tired...



Toys R Us Suntec..Marcus found a baby pram with a doll in it and hew was pushing the pram around.....training for upcoming duties...

Stupid transitlink reader..

what happen was that i was on this bus 170 travelling to Kranji MRT and was about to alight in the front ...as you know there are 2 readers 1 pair in the front the other pair at the rear door...as this was a short trip 170 ( meaning it would terminate its trip at Kranji MRT from Johor ).

By right upon reaching the Kranji MRT both the front and rear card reader should show "Entry/Exit"...but only one of the front reader was showing that mode..and the reader i tapped my card was showing "Entry" Only..SHIT!!!...what did that mean...well a lot of people do not know that upon exiting the bus and if you should happen to tap on the card reader showing a "Entry" Mode.....the card reader automatically deducts $1.45 ( full fare price ) plus another 65 cents...!!...Total of $2.05......dammm....



and guess what a lot of people and elderly ppl do not know about this...cause i happen to see a lot of old ppl tapping when the reader shows "Entry" Only mode......meaning Transit Link is collecting a large sum of money....and on the other hand claims that rising cost etc..equates to transport price increase........i just dun understand..why cant the front reader be kept on the Entry/Exit mode...must the reader change to Entry mode only??...and from what i understand to a technical person from Transit Link office the Entry mode is triggered by the bus's door sensor...and should only be in the mode for 15-20 seconds after doors has closed.....but this was not the case in many instances i have seen....Which the Technical person said that could be due to a faulty sensor or a slow responding door sensor...

So i called up TransitLink and complain..and today a Coporate communications lady called me to explain.. i just told her..simple...just tell me what happen to all those extra funds which commuters do not come foward to claim...?? And on the other hand Transitlink keeps on telling the public about falling revenues due to high cost and bus cheats...a bus cheats not much compared to the amount many ppl are fasley deducted due to the Entry Mode

She kept quiet for a moment ..and then asked me for my email address saying she would write to me....about it....i am waiting...once i get her reply..i will email ST forum and ask them to dig into this..Remember the old man who did some survey and ST reported that story...hehehehe.....

So tap on exiting the bus when the card reader shows "Entry/Exit" mode only!!!...

Sunday

and just now went down to the Post Office at Killney Raod to send 2 packages....hehehe..sold some items off ebay...made some $$ ..Profit nearly 150%... lol i think i will focus on some selling on ebay...there are items and money to be made...just have to think hard.....and saw this lady driver...fickle minded..want to stop ,pls stop before the white line...dun stop in the middle of the pedestrian lane...ppl crossing the road was so piss with her....



Saw the papers Starhub offer....lol...made a fuss with them just now...long story short...i was in the wrong... :).... so should i go for the offer...since my Maxonline no contract..and mobile contract ending soon..less than 4 weeks....should i recontract and get the Cannon Camcorder Free....looks like a good deal for me....



oh btw...you need to have at least a new service...so only way for me is to terminate the current contract i have...and get a new mobile number...isnt Starhub a bit dumb...more paperwork for them..to me i dun bother....

Saturday...slow..and Tikam...

Sat yesterday was a slow day..did nothing much...wanted to go out..but Marcus did not sleep...so in the end..he slept at 3 pm..without his pants on!!...Rascal...



but i managed to go out to get some material to start planning to scratch build a building....material is cheap less than $15.....and came home ...Marcus was still sleeping...so decided to go out after buying back dinner...told wife ..and off i went...

i was halfway to the bus stop and wife called me saying the rascal is crying for me....urrr....turn back again...went home..and true enough the moment he saw me..he kept quiet and called " papa..". ... i was like ..WTF...

Quiet him down...clean him up ..and told him.."lets finish your dinner then daddy bring you out"...his whole face lighted up...cause he was sick for 2 weeks and was "confine" at home...lol...

After dinner brought him to Carrefour-Suntec...and on the 3rd level above Carrefour there is a family link..and there was a Capsule exhibition..lol..those "tikam" machine...and i found a "Tikam" Machine having TOMICA JR!!!...change $20 worth of coin and off we went "tikamming" Father and son..lol....

Oh BTW Saw the price of the TOMICA DieCast cars price has gone up from 2.95 to 3.50!!

i counted the number of tomicas i bought before the price increase...217 cars total..and most of it i did not buy it at the full price of 2.95..normally 20% discount or 10%...lets assume i bought all at 10% off 2.95....would be 2.65 each...

Total for 217 cars - $576.15 * 2.65
If i had started this hobby later...it would have cost me $683.55 ( with 10% also )..
pianz...i just saved $100 plus total...heng har....

Back to Tikam
The number of Tikam capsules i have amassed ...


Ok For the Tomica Jr .. its $2 per try...and guess what...try till i got 4 buses..lol...will get rid some of the extra on ebay..with a profit of course...

A Perspective of how small the cars are..thats a Singapore 10 cents!!







i luv this truck!!


Reach home late.....oh and now i am coughing....got the virus from Marcus... :(
