More Pickomino

I'm doing well in the Progressive Mode game. I have spent my powerups though.

Siu Hean is at level 20, Zann at level 14, Teck Loong (Lao Hobo) at level 8, Zenn (Zennkey) at level 7 and Brian at level 5. Levels are not indicative of much except that one has played more.

Singlish is the ultimate turn-off

Singlish is the ultimate turn-off. When I hear or read people spewing Singlish, I shudder.

Mandarin, Hokkien, Malay or English? I have no problems with those.

This is not a sales call

'This is not a sales call.' This was how a call started. The caller proceeded to invite me to a launch of a new property, saying that they will be giving me some free gifts and that there is no obligation to purchase. I told the caller that he is lying. This was a sales call. He protested that there is no obligation of buying. Doh. In any case, I didn't bother, I put my mobile in my drawer and left him to talk. He didn't get the message. He hung up and called back.


I started playing Reiner Knizia's 'Pickomino' after Siu Hean mentioned it on Facebook last night. This is a Facebook adaptation of the dice game released in 2005. Great fun. Additive too.

Siu Hean at level 19, Zann at level 13, Zenn at level 5! Wow!

I wanted to finish some drawings and was at Spinelli's at the Heeren in the afternoon, foregoing a Portrait Day session. I managed to finish three pieces and the linework for a small one which I would paint later. Mitchell came and joined me and he drew parts of a tree. Last week, I had managed to finish two. Later, we bought 220 gsm Daler-Rowney paper from Art Friend at Ngee Ann City. I also bought a medium tip Derwent water brush.

I joined my father and sisters at Ku De Ta at the Marina Bay Sands at 9:00 pm. We visited the Skypark and saw fireworks at Sentosa in the distance and fireworks at the River Hong Bao and Chingay procession over the Singapore Flyer. Wonderful view from the 57th storey.

Friday night

Friday evening. I met Zennkey* and Lao Hobo** at Borders. We browsed and had drinks at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf at the Forum shopping mall (formerly the Forum Galleria). Expensive drink. Heh.
