How many forms do we have to fill before we call it a day?

Birthday Form, Jab Form and the X-ray Form

Your Childcare Form, your Kindergarten Form and don’t forget your primary school Enrolment Form

Your Secondary School Form, Pre-U Form and University Form

And what about the National Service Form

When you graduate, you got to fill your Interview Form

If you lucky it lasts you forever,

And if you are not so lucky

You got to fill it over and over

One form to another, one form to another

When you got your first pay

You will get your Credit Card and Insurance form

Later part, follow by your Apartment Application Form

And, your Loan Form is on the way

One form to another, one form to another

CPF Form, Medisave Form and your Broadband Subscription Form

What happen if you got a car?

There are many forms to go

And you go for many forms

When your kid comes

Another set of forms begin to go

Until you are six feet down under

Your forms will be filled up by others

One form to another, one form to another

Friend (12) – 3P Porridge / 朋友(12)- 3P 粥

Posted on Updated on


能够暂时离开繁嚣,找个安静的角落,来一碗清淡小粥,享受恬静淡雅的一刻,人生何求!
Able to leave the hustle and bustle aside, find a quiet corner, have a bowl of light porridge and enjoy the quiet and elegant moment, what else do we ask for in life.
这是一碗3P小粥;平安,平淡,平凡的粥。
This bowl of 3P porridge; peaceful, plain and pleasant.
一碗毫不起眼的粥,没有名气的架式,没有奢华的点缀,没有高档的环境,没有美食家的评语。一副苍白虚弱的样子,默默摆在我面前,就为了填饱我们的肚子。
A bowl of humble porridge, not known in the rack, there is no luxury embellishment, upscale environment, no gourmet reviews.  With a look pale and weak, quietly placed in front of me, just to fill up my stomach.
尽管它没什么分量,但他还是紧守岗位,作为一位“护胃者”。
Although it has no load, but he still stick to his position as a tummy guardian.
这种3P无声无息摆在眼前,用天平称不到,长在额头的眼睛看不到,更别说走进时尚的高档品味。
This 3P sits quietly before us, can’t weigh it with a set of scale, catch no sight with our eyes, let alone into the upper crust.
所谓各花入各眼,这3P是一种福气,有异于一般。
As Beauty is in the Eyes of the Beholder, this 3P is a blessing, as it is different from the others.

Friend (11) – Monkey / 朋友(11)- 猴子

Posted on Updated on


在驶往贝雅士蓄水池的小路上,发现一头猴子蹲在路旁,外表逗趣可爱长相令人发笑。灰色的毛发与傻呼呼的样子,在看守来往的车子。

In Pierce Reservoir along Old Upper Thomson Road, saw a monkey kneeing along the roadside. His cute appearance looks ridiculous and his gray hair and insensibly manifestation guards at every car that passes by.

车子慢慢移近,它站起了身体,对车子有所期待。我没把车窗调下,以防它来个七十二变。它等了一会儿见车里头没动静,又坐回原位。我拿起相机拍它的样子,但它却不理不睬,还故意把脸转向另一边。它似乎提醒我,要拍就要有酬劳。

He stood up to the body, whenever a vehicle move closer to him as if there is something to look forward from the car.  I decline to unwind the car windows, just in case he stuns his“Seventy Two Transformation”.  While he waited for awhile and see no movement in the car, he sank back in situ.  As I direct my camera towards his direction, he ignore my interest on him and turn his face away from me.  He seems to be reminding me for a reward if I demand a snapshot from him.

有关部门提醒公众不要餵食野生动物,这不是没有理由。

Reminders have been put up constantly by relevant authorities to the public not to feed wild animals without invalid reasons.

自然界里的一草一木,自有它求存的一套本领。每一各体总有他的强项与天分。这套本领舍弃了而去依赖外界的施舍,到头来只剩下外界的怜憫眼光与那副博人同情的可怜相。

Flora and Fauna in their natural habitat has its own sets of survival skills.  Each bodied its own strength and flair.  Once the skills are discarded, it relies on external aid to subsist.  End of the day, what is remained and reminded is the pathetic vision asking for mercy from our human eyes.

幸亏猴子还算可爱,再来几只也无伤大雅。

Fortunately, monkeys are delightfully adorable, a few more to come is harmless and undisruptive at least to our very own nature that is loosing out in no time soon.

**There is a belief that the Monkey God has capabilities to do Seventy Two stuns with different transformation.

7) Friend – colour / 朋友 (7) – 色彩

你可以在色彩的世界里找到朋友。大自然赐与你无数的调色板让你无止境发挥。

如果你喜欢蓝,去找海洋,接触和平的使者。

If you like blue, get to the sea, contact with the angels of peace.

如果你喜欢红,去一下秋天,那枫叶红得令人迷醉。

If you like red, go look for Autumn, that Maple Leaf is so ravishing red.

如果你喜欢绿,只需要打开窗户或走出门外,一片绿油油的草地等着你。

if you like green,just open the windows or go out of the door,  lush grass is waiting for you.

就算你喜欢黑也没错,来到原始的宇宙,黑是如此高尚与神秘。

Even if you like black is also true to the original universe, black is so noble and mysterious.

所以朋友,你的名字叫‘色彩’。

你有无数追随者,伤心的画家与开心的气球。

在缤纷的世界里你静静的喝彩,在喧闹的世界里你保持沉默。

你有你缤纷的春天,你有你白皚嵦的雪。
