Singapore, you need a break...

No. I'm not doing a commercial for Jetstar. There's this online petition going on right now for an extra public holiday in Singapore. The petition stays open until 13-Sep-09. Go on... Do your part for Singapore.

Family Gathering = Majong

It's feels good whenever I get a chance to have a round of Majong with family over the weekend. And Majong reminds me of this music video...

Some pursue their dreams by travelling
Some live with their dreams dangling
Some thought their life were fulfilling
Some wish their lives had been more enriching...

Sometimes, all you need is a SIGN

Not too sure if you guys have seen this before. But damm solid I thought... It is one of the Cannes Lions winners in 2009. This movie is actually an advertisement for Schweppes. If only we can see more of such great adverts.

Giving Blood

Found this interesting story and thought I should share

Many years ago, when I worked as a transfusion volunteer at Stanford Hospital, I got to know a little girl named Liza who was suffering from a disease and needed blood from her five-year-old brother, who had miraculously survived the same disease and had developed the antibodies needed to combat the illness. The doctor explained the situation to her little brother, and asked the boy if he would be willing to give his blood to his sister. I saw him hesitate for only a moment before taking a deep breath and saying, "Yes, I'll do it if it will save Liza."

As the transfusion progressed, he lay in bed next to his sister and smiled, as we all did, seeing the color returning to her cheeks. Then his face grew pale and his smile faded. He looked up at the doctor and asked with a trembling voice, "Will I start to die right away?"

Being young, the boy had misunderstood the doctor; he thought he was going to have to give her all his blood.
