Lido – movie watch

24 10 2007

My God brother is in town.. so brought him to Rabbit and ate our dinner there…


Yummy …


And followed by a movie at Lido.. Not much selection.. was thinking of catching Mr. Woodcock.. a comedy… but alas.. my God bro preferred the “Resident Evil: Extinction”.. Yes, so we watched that in the end… *regret* …

I think my life is stressful enough without all these ‘ghosts’, ‘vampires’, brutal people scaring the hell out-of-my-life… Luckily my heart is strong enough.. though i was sitting lower and lower… and covering my face/eyes here and there… and of course, screaming when the scary scenes were up… *roll eyes*

*sigh* finally able to breath after the movie finishes.. I was glad that it is only 1.5hr movie.. and tapped myself on the back… saying “well done, I’ve survived a horror flick.. it is not that scary after all… ” hoohooo… =p

Followed by a meet up 刘谦益

Me + Mr Liu

Very young looking in person.. =)

He was there to watch a movie, but prob missed the timing..

So on the escalator down-wards, I went up to him and requested for a foto-taking..

ended up quite a few shot.. =p

I praised him of his acting and told him to continue to JIA YOU! =D

Also happened to take this poster of “BALLS of FURY”.. note anything?? *wink*

Balls of Fury

阮诗凯 Keely – 原来爱情这么伤 

Very nice … kind of miss her voice and smile.. thought her voice is kind of special..

Her 平常心

Anyway never know she is an item with Javin… I initially thought she already had a bf before she enter this CSS competition.. Oh well..  But I like Javin.. and they both look sweet together… Javin is from NYJC too.. *Yeah*


21 10 2007

Was reading blinkymummy‘s blog entry..

Finding some 感触 on certain topics..

She was saying ..

“The other day, X was lamenting how Y had such a smooth-sailing life, and that the former must have a really lousy destiny.At the same time, I have also witnessed many people comparing themselves with others, and in the process becoming bitter.”

And she shared more on ONE’S CONSTRAINTS & CONTEXTS where she thinks that everyone is limited by his/her own

  1. Energy
  2. Potential
  3. Time

The interesting part is when she introduce this “Partnership”.

“I believe in any human partnership (work, family, love, friends etc) lies the power of the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.This is the true reason why people come together in work, in life… But again… many people have forgotten/are without understanding of this, and instead come together because the next group of monkeys are doing it.

And, all things equal, the only way to unleash this power is Trust. And while sometimes you and your partner may feel the electrifying energy between, and believe you see all sorts of cryptic messages of a blissful eternity, sustainable Trust, in reality, takes time and probably luck to build up.”

Ok what I am thinking abt these few days is not like the scenario of X & Y. More of like … why is there pple earning much more… why is there pple doing very well in work… why is there pple knowing what they really want to do in life…. why is there pple being happy… is being satisfied with what u have – then u will be happy… Is the thought of upgrading and progressing up – an expectation – will lead to disaappointment… Is “No expectation is called happiness” correct… isn’t that loser’s mindset… why pple can be happy just like that… is it really simple life is what pple are seeking… is family, marriage, love – the solution for problems… is…why… what… how… when… where….  …… endless qs ….

no answer… not really seeking for one now… but will continue exploring these qs..

Healthy, Happy People 

Line dancing promotes healthy mental health


Step, Hold, Side Step, Coaster Step, Forward Lock Step, Rocking Chair,  ½ pivot, Triple Full Turn R, Toe Strut R, Rock Back, Weave R, Side Rock, Touch, Heel Dig, Touch, Cross Rock …

These terms are not foreign to Mr. Ong Kee Lin who is very experienced in line-dancing. Mr. Ong, a line-dance instructor, has always love music and dancing since young, he picked up social dance in 1987 and switched to line dancing 9 years ago.

Mr. Ong is not the only exception here. Magdelene, a kindergarten teacher, also switches from social dance to line dancing in 1999. Why the switch? She shared that social dance needs partners, and with fewer guy partners, it was difficult to continue her favorite activity. One day, she came across a group of people who were dancing and her amazement is they were all dancing in a line! Line dancing solved her problem and she has been line-dancing these past 8 years.

“Line dancing is suitable for everyone, with or without partner, young, old, single, married with kids, married without kids. There are not many restrictions and we all can do line-dancing anywhere and anytime as long as there is music and space.” said the mother of two girls.


Line dancing is also a form of exercise and relaxation. Relaxation is good for the mind and the body. Life is not all about work and not having time to relax.


“Works is stressful sometime, so I took up line dancing to sweat it out and at the same, relieve some stress,” said Dolly, who is currently working in a trading company.


Dressed in comfortable attire, Dolly and with other sixty dancers could be found enjoying line-dancing in front of Singapore Post Office, next to Paya Lebar MRT Station every Friday night. Mr. Ong, who is the organizer for this event, shared that such line-dancing jams are organized to provide a venue for the students to practice their line-dancing steps outside classes. People who turned up at the jam are not entirely his students, but most turned up with their groups of friends or ‘kakis’. Some may even have a certain color code for their group.


This is also how line-dancing helps to create opportunity for bonding, keeping-in-touch, and meeting new friends of same interest. You can even try finding your life-partner here! A great example is Mr. Ong, who fell in love with his line-dancing student, Jane. Their love for line dancing has brought them together. They are now happily married and are still dancing together.


For Magdelene, line-dancing provides her more opportunity to interact and bond with her sister, Suzanne. Suzanne was introduced to line-dancing by Magdelene four years ago and there was no turning back. Now Suzanne, a housewife, checked up the new dance steps in the internet and shared her findings with her sister.


“My sister loves it! She said line dancing is her longest hobby so far! And look, she now knows the new dance steps, better than me!” Magdelene added with a smile. They now meet up weekly to attend the line dancing jam.


Though physical exercise is important, this year’s National Healthy Lifestyle Campaign also stresses the importance of mental health to our well-being. With mental well-being, one can have the capacity to enjoy life the fullest and deal with the normal stresses and challenges of life constructively.


So why not try Line dancing this time? After a fun and rejuvenating activity, you will feel refreshed and be ready to take on any challenges at work or at home.

Line dancing classes are charged normally for about $55 for 10-12 lessons. Go to your nearest Community Centre and sign up now for a healthy and happy you!
