Stranger as they come

This boy behaved quite annoyingly. in the MRT train, on my way home. He was not keeping to the usual good behaviour in a crowded train. No wonder, he is not local (not that all non-locals behave badly). Lesson in point: if you are wearing a brand, be careful what you do, or do not do, in a crowd.

Chickety chick

Well, ok, I relented. My companion is more forgiving, so we tried our 'luck' at the cashier counter and they said we could take the table. What went in? Some chicken meat. fries and pancakes (sort of). How much did it cost me? Too much. That said, the sizes of the chicken wings were quite large, and it comes with a pair of gloves, gratis.

Beauty and the bench

This restaurant refused to seat me and my companion (yeah, just the two of us) at this table, because it is meant for 4 people (maybe five if you squeeze). There wasn't another empty table in sight. I was so flabbergasted that I walked out, taking my money with me. Maybe they just don't need my business anyway.

Spitty bus

You usually would not associate this "do-not" sign in Singapore, more like in China. People in Singapore are not accustomed to such icky habits. This picture was taken off a bus in Singapore. Would it be any wonder as this bus was a China-manufactured one - something that is becoming quite common on Singapore roads.

Haggardly Fashion

Once upon a time, women would do anything to mast off any hint of white hair, typically by dyeing their hair black. You know times have changed when women intentionally dye their hair white, no grey in this instance. Frankly, it makes them look old, haggard even. I wonder why.

Doubly smoked

A woman (in red blouse) smoking away while standing outside the building. It was quite hazy that day. I suppose they are used to this.

New in the old

Malls are fond of putting up retro furnishing nowadays. This TV set harks back to the 1960s and 70s. Except, there is one problem. Can you guess what is wrong?

Careful now, don't slip off the chair.

Tablets at the Table

TV-dinners were common 20 years ago. Then came the kiddy-tablet meals. Move over junior, mom wants to do it too.

Seat or sh*t

What an unfortunate word to use for a seat/chair.

Passing time

A well-stocked toilet cubical indeed. Don't have to worry about passing the time.

Women have been carrying out-sized bags for some time now, and I've gotten used to squeezing around them. Size-wise, this one must take the cake.

We, I or me Got

Charities are not so well endowed that they can afford someone to check their grammar for them. So I'll do them a favour here. Clean it up if you have the time. Otherwise, the sentence makes sense to me. The meaning is not lost just because someone was careless with his English.

Fidgety Google

I can't understand why Google removed the picture in this post. It isn't pornographic at all. It is just the picture of the cover of E.L. James' runaway best seller, Fifty Shades of Grey, which I took with my phone camera in a local bookstore, displayed in broad daylight. This bookstore is frequented by parents and children as it specialises in school text and assessment books. The book cover had an added label on it warning that it was strictly not for browsing. That was what I was trying to highlight. That's all. I am puzzled that they think it was pornographic. Or was it a case of violation of copyright? Or did Google just relied on their spiders to remove ANY picture in a post which had words like pornography, sex, and such like?

I am keeping my fingers crossed that they will not censor this post. To think that they stood up to the Chinese government by closing their business in China because they did not agree to China's attempts to restrict certain content on Google.

Hmmm...just so that it is all above board, I have taken a screenshot of this post. So if it disappears, it can resurface, perhaps in a freer platform?
