Thio Su Mien: “Some of us live till 73 to celebrate feminism. We don’t go around shouting and shrieking. I believe I am a ‘feminist mentor’…QUIET please, because you have put me in your book. All of you have been asked to read about women who are first in their fields and I was so charmed to discover that I was in book on page 73. I was the first batch of law graduates and…SHOW SOME RESPECT TO YOUR ELDERS….”
[Somebody from the crowd shouted “You have to earn the RESPECT!”]
Lois Ng: “Ladies and gentlemen, please sit down, I have already mentioned to you about the house rules. We do not interrupt when somebody is speaking. There are many people here who wanted to speak.”
[The noise from the crowd continues to drown Thio Su Mien’s speech]
Thio Su Mien: “I was very charmed when I discovered I was in this book. Please show humility. I acted a point that I stand to stay something because it’s my desire, because you are women who are descendents of the pioneers of Singapore….I am disturbed, I was the first Law Dean, I was also the first to establish……YOU HAVE NO RESPECT FOR YOUR ELDERS”
[A lady pointed at her watch and shouted to Thio: “Your 3 minutes is UP!!”]

接到电话，叫我到Fuji Xerox Towers Level 6 应征management trainee 一职： “there are a variety of positions , come down and we can talk about it”。
我的戒心很重，问了两次 “Where did you get my particulars?”
本打算问一大堆刺激性的问题来jixiao 一下， 可惜没问。
In the Straits Times, May 19, 2008:
Buddhism is the main religion here, and fast growing: The number of people aged 15 and up who said they were followers jumped from 27 per cent of the population in 1980 to 31 per cent in 1990. In 2000, the last census, the figure was 43 per cent, or 1.1 million people.
Buddhist converts told The Straits Times that the religion offered comfort in the face of uncertainties and disasters, and a constant reminder to look beyond the materialism of the rat race and to attain calmness and happiness through meditation and reflection.

I don’t know why I always have something to say. My mind is good for everything except work.
Quite tempted to create a Facebook group named “I blog in Chinese and am proud of it”
or “Chinese-speaking Singaporeans” or “Young Chinese-speaking Singaporeans” or “Let’s keep in touch with our mother tongue”
Urgh, advertising is ugly, exploitative and a bane to this world.
Especially when money making is the only thing on the agenda. They really shouldn’t bother writing the ethics section in textbooks since there isn’t any.
I never realised this until I had to pick a local company for my Advertising and PR project.
It’s quite ironic that as a Singaporean, I can’t think of a local company (that hasn’t already gone regional/global) without squeezing my bwains dry.
Do I blame globalisation? Am I truly Singaporean? How can I not know? How can I not support local brands?
Our lives are inundated with global man-eating MNCs and that’s making us lose a big part of our identity. Like it or not, they are encroaching on our space and diminishing the importance of local brands in our minds.
It’s mind-numbing and slightly humiliating to see taglines like America’s Very Best plastered all over Singaporean shopping malls. We’re too busy hobnobbing with Mac’s and KFC to even cast sideway glances at that sad little local start-up dying for our attention.
I will make a conscious effort to support local brands from now on! Ay, these local brands should have some form of identification so I know I’m buying local/indie. Like a “Uniquely Singaporean”/ “Lovingly Local”/ “Incredibly Indie” sticker or something. :X
Boycott Man-eating MNCs, everyone! Support local, support indie!
Most importantly, support ME!
No, I didn’t teach my father to act cute. Not me.
I think we need more normalcy.

Isn’t this price revolting?! Might as well buy my yummy durian-flo! Got so much change to spare some more! My sister was classic: “It’s cheaper if you cook rice and use it to stick.”
Had no choice but to buy it cos Popular at White sands is monopolised by UHU glue. Was horrified when I saw Bostick glue of the same size HALF this price at Orchard Popular!!! Buy Bostick, everyone! UHU is a total letdown, despite being part of my childhood art and craft memories. I had to re-glue my advertising mock-up 1000 times before it would stop falling apart.
And I’m quite disturbed that their pens are now individually packed in sinister plastic. A horrid and needless waste. Been boycotting these individually packed pens. Boycott them, everyone!
A reporter from omy.sg called me some time ago and asked me to answer a few questions via email. She also asked me to attach a photo that “must be taken outdoors, by someone else”.
Take short cut take until a bit obvious, lor! Make readers think you went out to do interviews while you shake leg in the air-con office!
I interview people via email
because I’m downright lazy for the sake of convenience, but I’ve never asked them to attach such photos.
Tsk tsk, should I learn from her?
