Did you know you can call HDB to clean your ****?

After Nathaniel was born, Mrs Neo, in her confinement holiday of 4 months, spent a great deal of time at home.

In this period, she saw that the parapet area, where the aircon compressor was installed, is getting very dirty and was blocking the hole that was meant to allow water to seep through.

She called the local town council and they sent their contractor to clean up the parapet area for free!

I believe they are obliged to do this as water clogging will damage the cement which was outside the flat and it was too dangerous for house owners themselves to clean it.

Just bought a nice bag that has a funny print for my wife

On the bag, there is a badge that says [ILOVEUCB]

Saw the bag in Thailand Bangkok Airport.

Bought it..

This funny tag which says ILOVEUCB will be very ambiguous especially for Singaporeans..

UCB actually means United Colors of Benetton but apparently, most Singaporeans will think otherwise!

Photo capture of an angel!

Following my own picture of the grim reaper in Batam,

This is another picture [ not taken by me ] of an angel..

Again, many will try to explain the phenomenon with science and even claim that the picture was staged..

See for yourself.

I bet most Singaporeans didn't know this political history!

Just found out that :

PKMS [ Singapore Malay National Organization ] was a branch of Malaysia's UMNO [ United Malays National Organization ] previously when Singapore was still a part of Malaysia.


PAP [ People Action Party ] had a branch in Malaysia before its independence, AKA DAP [ Democratic Action Party ].

Of course, after Singapore's independence, the main parties and their branches no longer have any affiliation (**) across the borders but it's interesting to know such political history.

Perhaps something good (learning about political history) came out of the fight between PKMS incoming/outgoing councils. By "fight", I mean a real brawl! Read here for more details on the skull fracturing brawl..

No need to flush, save WATER!

I'd seen more and more of these waterless, zero flush urinals installed nowadays in Singapore. The urinals are chemically treated and does not need water to flush for every use.

Come to think of it, it's amazing how much water we use to flush the urinals for every use. I believe for every 200-300ml of urine, a litre of clean water is needed to clean the urinal. Multiply this amount by the usage pattern of each urinal, we actually waste a lot of clean water just to flush our pee from the urinal into public sewage.

However, these zero water flushing systems require chemical treatment and my guess is that there are some costs involved in the regular chemical treatment. Not too sure of the costs of the treatment will outweigh the cost of the water used by the conventional flushing.

In any case, this trend is only beginning and no one knows if in the long run, the zero flush system will really prove to eliminate stain and smell and maintain the same level of hygiene. We shall see.

One of the systems I saw in Singapore is of this particular brand

If it's environmentally friendly and saves costs and still maintain the same standard of hygiene.. why not?
