World Cup 2014

I have happy memories of watching the World Cup four years ago. I remember going to a community centre in Tampines and watching it. It was quite something.

Jurong Region Line

The Jurong Region Line (JRL) is finally announced. I think the line is much needed from what I have heard, the crowding at the stations in the western region of Singapore. Given that Jurong is a large area in Singapore's context, the number of stations seem right.

I do wonder if there are enough lines linking Jurong to the city though. If not, the East-West line would still be choked. I suppose the last segment, the JRL extension will alleviate that.

Buffets. It makes me sad when I think of them now. I haven't eaten at a buffet for a few years now.

It was 24.5 degrees at 6:00 pm yesterday and 23 degrees at 9 pm this morning. Apparently, it did drop to 22 degrees last night. It rained the entire night. It had been raining for three or four days continuously.

This has been the coldest in Singapore in a long while.

It is one thing to be stoic and resolute in the face of adversity and challenges and it is one thing to be fatalistic. There is a difference.

Acceptance and understanding versus just rolling over.

There is also a third category where one simply rationalises to oneself that it is actually for the better, that's the Ah Q way.

Oh well, I observed a few bit of defeatism and self-deception in some people lately.

I wish the weekend were longer. There is so many things that I want to do. Not enough time and energy. Oh well.

I found an old 'I love you' card that I had wanted to give her. In the end, it was never given. There it was, lingering in the corner of that drawer.

It is a chilly 24.5 degrees this morning. The monsoons are here in full force. I think it was never generally this rainy or cold at this time of the year.
