The telephone cannot stop ringing today. It was when I was about to get some work done, there would be a call from Mapletree then, the Korean Trade Board, then, a tenant, then... It's endless. I can't get anything done at this rate. Focus and accuracy.

It is not surprising that some of the letters that I had typed had a few typos. Oh well.

And I am grappling with a cough that is interfering with my speech.
Day four of the week. I'm still as busy. I have been sleeping early throughout this week. I needed the rest.

On the road to a full recovery. Alas, now, one of my sisters seem to be afflicted with the cough while the other is giddy. The papers had reported an epidemic that is afflicting Singapore. I had also read the status updates of people I know on Facebook and a large number had reported being down with a cold or flu.

Alarming. I had a cold. Imagine if that had been flu.

I can almost pinpoint the source of my cold but I will not say it here. Heh.

All my most urgent and crucial tasks have been completed. The week should be smooth sailing ahead.

Munching on his donuts

Shyue Chou Chuang says (2:17 PM)
The emperor was in Singapore just now.
But he could not visit me.
As I was sick.

Kuoby says (2:17 PM)

Shyue Chou Chuang says (2:17 PM)
Been rather ill yesterday.

Kuoby says (2:17 PM)
typical of royalty

Shyue Chou Chuang says (2:17 PM)
He came back for 48 hours

Kuoby says (2:17 PM)
arrogantly munching on his donuts no doubt

Tasks completed. Now, the receipt of the payment. Then the follow-up tasks.
The Emperor is back. However, I was down with a headache and a cold last night and did not get to meet his Highness. Oh well. On another front, most of the paperwork is done and things are going without a hitch. Smooth sailing ahead.

Now, I will need to list tasks to be accomplished today.

Paperwork prepared. Now, it is a matter of waiting. So much accomplished and there is more to be done. The more crucial aspects. Eric should be over here this afternoon with the keys. I better have my mobile out of the drawer.
Busy busy busy day with several impending things to deal with. Some of these will potentially be messy. One step at a time. Settle them all. Then, the weekend will be here.

And much needed rest.
I seem to have lost my voice. Oh well. This lingering cold is more annoying than I would have thought.

Back to gaming!

An excellent gaming session today. Terence, Siu Hean, James the Younger, Chew Ming and I played six games! We played Dixit, Pieces O' Cake, Money, and Santiago twice! It has been a year since I last played games. I hadn't the heart then. Now, I'm back! Whee!
Seven days of papers. Eight days of diary entries. Lots to catch up. Heh. I will be back!


I was at the Pompeii exhibition after my dentist appointment in the afternoon. I learned to my dismay that it was the Museum Open House as hordes of Singaporeans on hearing that it was free admission crowded the venue. It was pretty much impossible.

I was then at Spinelli's at Orchard Central. Mitchell came to join me after and we talked till evening. He also found the CD of Antal Dorati and Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra's performance of Tchaikovsky's 1812 overture which had utilised a period bronze cannon!
