29 Mar 2011 – Comments Flying All Over (edited 1700hrs)
Only one NSman is represented in this pix, there are others like my two grand-nephews ANG Kee Yang & LAM Sui Chang who are good citizens and serving their country with pride, my respects to them! Even if it means to add it in after the posting, formally Ghost from this morning, but edited to Believe It or Not. Had to do as a reminder and hopefully not happen again!
A series of photographs making its rounds on the Internet has generated much debate about whether Gen Y soldiers in Singapore are too soft and spoilt.
The photos which were taken off Facebook and posted on The Straits Times’ online portal Stomp features a young man, fully decked out in army fatigues, with his maid trailing behind him carrying his large backpack…
This was posted on FaceBook by CHENG Chee Hoew later… imagine the comments this incident generated. Since my name has been taken in vain here, had to put in my two cents!
Ghost*** In Your Arms Again is a remake of the 1990 Ghost and is a co-production between S Korea and Japan. Previously titled Love and Soul. Except this flick is a role reverse. Nanami is a successful Japanese CEO and Joon-ho is a Korean potter who lives in Tokyo to learn pottery. They become a couple but Nanami dies due to an accident. Nanami hangs around Joon-ho even after her death because she couldn’t leave his loved one and then she eventually finds out the truth about her death.
Had to watch this as the original Ghost with Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze was rather touching and Whoopi Goldberg did such a good job as the psychic! This Asian version is different even with the same music, Unchained Melody! Both stories reflect on love even after death. Is it possible for some souls to linger on and this story touches on that.

A strange thing happened while flossing my teeth. The floss just vanished out of my hands! No did not swallow it, not illusions or imagination. Yes checked the sink and fine-combed the area throughly and am aware that Ching Ming is just round the corner! Will not disclose the location as others might get freak out.

The Lincoln Lawyer*** Mickey is a LA criminal defense attorney who operates out of the back of his Lincoln Continental sedan. He has spent most of his career defending garden-variety criminals, until he lands the case of a lifetime: defending a Beverly Hills playboy accused of murder. But the seemingly straightforward case is more complicated and develops into a deadly game of survival for Mickey and his family. Worth the watch if you have the time.
