Crazy property prices

Was browsing some forums and i saw this old thread from June 2006 on seng kang BTO flats (Fernvale Vista). The prices were:
3-room: $94,000 - $123,000
4-room: $131,000 - $182,000


Here are the most recent seng kang BTO flats (Fernvale Palms) from Oct 2009, almost the SAME location, same size.
3-room: $129,000 - $163,000
4-room: $214,000 -
$262,000

That's an increase of $40,000 and $80,000 for 3rm and 4rm flats respectively.

WTF HDB. Thanks for the "subsidy".

Woman tried making love to burglar

Mon, Jan 25, 2010
China Daily/Asia News Network

A woman tried making love to a burglar, mistaking the intruder for her husband, in Changsha, capital of Hunan province, last Wednesday, the Xiaoxiang Morning Post reports.

The woman, surnamed Qiu, woke up when she heard someone enter the room and threw herself on the person, thinking it was her husband.

The man pushed her down on the bed and started cuddling her.

That's when Qiu realized her husband's hair had suddenly grown unusually long.

She switched on the lights to find a stranger on her bed and raised an alarm.

Qiu's husband, who was playing mahjong at a neighbor's house, rushed in and subdued the intruder.

Loads of new ramen shops in Singapore nowadays.

Here's my Love List.
  • Tanpopo (Liang court/Ngee ann city) - wide variety (more than 10types), awesome soup base (pork bone/miso but seafood isn't nice), awesome noodles (hokkaido/kyuushuu), generous ingredients (bamboo, veg, egg, average pork)
  • Miharu (Gallery Hotel) - awesome soup base (pork bone or miso), awesome hokkaido noodles, good pork
  • Santouka (Clarke Quay Central) - limited choices awesome pork bone soup base/spicy miso, to-die-for pork cheeks, good kyuushuu noodles
  • Hakata Nihon Ryouri (Mohd Sultan) - VERY limited choices, awesome soup base, good kyuushuu noodles
  • Ippudo (Mandarin Hotel) - awesome pork/miso soup base, nice kyuushuu noodles, good pork, horrible queue/overhyped/overpriced. [I visited it in Ginza and it was just a casual eatery.]
  • Yoshimaru (Holland Village) - Interesting peanutty soup base, nice kyuushuu noodles, forgettable pork. but i loved the grind-it-yourself sesame seed condiment! :D
Here's my Crap List.
  • Aoba (Ion Orchard) - shitty oily soup base, half chicken-half pork), crappy hokkaido noodles, the pork belly was so fatty i wanted to gag.
  • Bishamon (Raffles city) - shitty soup base, shitty noodles, but pork was marinated quite well.
  • Shokudo (EVERYWHERE) - shitty soup base, shitty noodles, not served hot, ughh.
Neutral List
  • Ajisen Ramen (Everywhere) - I think it's really average, but my Japanese friend said its pretty authentic Kumamoto ramen...
  • Marutama (Central) - I just don't like chicken based soup. It wasn't tasty enough. (but everyone else loves it?)
  • Sun with Moon (Wheelock, Central) - very limited choices, and their hokkaido ramen was just "nice", not really "woah". Expensive!

時々に日本語を使いたいけど全部の日本人の友達もう帰国しまった。
親友達は日本語をあまり話さないも。
同僚の専門は日本語だった。NUSで勉強したのに今日本語を話せなくなった。だって12年前に卒業したの。^^;
姉も日本語の会話好きじゃない気がする。会える機会も少ない。

ナンチャこれや!まさか自分と会話しなきゃならないの?!

woooo!!!!!!!!
