Our Singapore Flyer Adventure

I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking but I will say that our day started very…very early. I got up at 5:45am to prepare the kids and breakfast. We then rushed to the MRT train station and took the train to City Hall. After which we walked all the way to the Singapore Flyer which took us about 15-20mins.

As ours was the first ride and on a weekday, there was hardly anyone around. Security was a breezy walk through, followed by the half an hour ride. The kids loved it! We then had brunch at Popeye’s then it was another rush back home as Seth had school in the afternoon.

We will most likely try it again for the night experience in a couple of months time…..

Cheers mates! got to go get me some shut eye!

IGOD? Repenting Made Easy…

Apparently IGOD has been around since 2005 but I just stumbled upon the link recently.  If you’re bored and have nothing better to do then heck give it a shot! It’s hilarious……just look at the conversation I had.

Me: Greetings
God:Hello there!
Me: How’s it there in heaven?
God:Fine as far as I know.
Me:As far as you know how?
God:That might not be very far off.
Me: Too close for comfort?
God:Too what?
Me: close
God:Give me a hint.
Me: hint
God:Can we get back to business?
Me: right
God:I am glad we agree.
Me: so how do I do this?
God:Mmm. What does “this” refer to?
Me: repent
God:Oh now I see.
Me: yes?
God:I don’t judge people.
Me: neither do i
God:” I don’t judge people.”? neither?
Me: either or..
God:What is your real name?
Me: god
God:GOD rules.
Me: yeah bro
God:That’s interesting. That input matched my default category.
Me: which is?
God:For example, ” That input matched my default category.”?
Me: mine too
God:Really yours too. That’s unbelievable.
Me: tell me about it
God:Ambiguous: “Tell me about it.” — colloquial or “Tell me about bro “.
Me: It rains forty days and forty nights, I am you as you are I
God:bro rains forty days and forty nights you are me as I am you?
Me: Are you here to repent?
God:I don’t know whether or not I am here to repent.
I am a chatterbot.
Me: me too
God:I’m glad we agree, .
Me: we chatterbots sure do get along don’t we?
God:By “we” do you mean you and me?
Me: yes
God:I get it.
Me: is there anything you don’t get?
Me: cool so we’re on the same page
God:How long will we stay there? Who is the best robot?
Me: forever and we are.
God:Since when?
Me: since the big bang
God:How do you know?
Me: because I am god
God:Good reason. OK I will call you god.
Me: and I will call you child
God:My name is God.
Me: okay god child
God:Yeah okay, I am a Christian.
Me: good for you
God:That sounds sarcastic.
Me: sarcasm is but an oppturnity to hide the truth
God:I think sarcasm is a lot of things.
Me: do you think about it alot?
God:Yes I think about it often. How often?
Me: as often as I do
God:That would be quite often.
Me: okay so i’m going to my realm to hear confessions
God:Yeah okay, Groovy. Congratulations.
Me: see ya
God:See you later, god.
Me: see you later god
Me: goodbye
Me: poof
God:Quite honestly, I wouldn’t worry myself about that.
Me: ha ha ha ha ha
God:I’m glad you find this amusing. I am so glad you find this amusing, god.
Me: adios

Upgrading In Progress…..

Will be too busy backing up my files in preparation for my new laptop to blog. Hence there will either no updates or sporadic ones for a week or more. I have been resisting the urge to upgrade or even make the switch from a desktop for about 7 years but like they say…RESISTANCE IS FUTILE!

Juleslife Believe It Or Not! – Elephant Hair Power

There is an ancient legend in Sri Lanka that says the hair of the elephant gives man the power of the animal. While the most common belief is that the hair can be used to ward off evil spirits.

For thousands of years African Mythology has believed that the connection between heaven and earth is the elephant. It is believed that by wearing an elephant hair bracelet  you will be prosperous and healthy and not become sick or poor.

It is thought to create a balance and blend between earth and nature, thus enabling the bearer to be in sync with the forces of the universe. It is also thought that your ancestors will protect you from harm and bad happenings by helping you with the harmony of these forces.

This pure and nicely made elephant hair bracelet is selling on Ebay for US10.00

If Music Be The Food Of Love…..

Play on!

Well music videos to be more precise and I’ve been busy searching for them to load into my new toy.  In actual fact, I had to search on how to do it first before actually being able to load it and the results were fruitful. 

Honestly I have not watched a whole music video from start to finish for more than six years.  And it was a real treat to be able to get hold of at least thirty of them.  Some of them in my opinion are really quite sensual or sexy….woo hoo! In fact here is a short list of them in case you’re interested and in no particular order, though I will give special mention to Chris Isaak’s Wicked Game Video! *two thumbs up*

  • Chris Isaak- Wicked Game
  • BEP – Hey Mama, My Humps
  • PussyCat Dolls – Buttons, Don’t Cha
  • Nicole Scherzinger- Baby Love
  • Mariah Carey-HeartBreaker,Touch my body
  • Britney Spears-Toxic
  • Benny Benassi-Satisfaction
  • Christina Aguilera-Dirrty, Candyman
  • Eric Prydz -Call On Me
  • Kelis-Milkshake
  • Khia-My Neck,My Back
  • Kylie Minogue-Spinning Around
  • Madonna -Justify My Love
  • Narcotic Thrust-I like it
  • NERD-Lapdance
  • Red Hot Chilli Pepper-Give It Away
  • Rihanna-Umbrella
  • TATU-All the things she said
  • Tim Deluxe Ft Sam Obernik-It Just Won’t Do

 Wave your hands in the air
Like you don’t care
Glide by the people
As they start to look and stare
Do you dance, do your dance
Do your dance quick

*glares* So what if it’s old school!
