I’m liking the new Blogger. I’ve finally have what I’ve always wanted to have – labels! Now I can categorize my posts and choose to read which category I want at one click.
There’s also the ‘widget’ feature which I like, once I’ve adjusted it, it will stay the same, no matter what template I change to. But now that Blogger has upgraded from CSS to XML, I believe alot of blog-skins will cease to work. Fortunately for this blog, it has a very simple design. 🙂
I had a lovely day on Thursday which was the eve of Teachers’s day. I still went to work even though I had another day to rest – I was concerned as there wasnt anyone manning the pictures and the video for the school. I was feeling better anyways.
I felt well enough to attend the teacher’s day lunch. I asked Sophia, the admin manager, where the place was
Sophia : Its at River View Hotel
Me : Err .. Where’s that?
SOphia : Do you know where Havelock Road is?
Me : No … Where’s that?
Sophia : Its near Zouk (a night club)
Me : I dont go clubbing
In the end we consulted streetdirectory and read the directions from there but just to be double sure, I asked some of the staff who were driving if I could follow their car.
V : I’m not sure if that’s a good idea
Me : Why not?
V : I’ll be driving quite fast
Me : Just say that you dont want me to follow you
V : Its not that, I’m not sure if you can keep up
In the end, I said nevermind. It was obvious that he did not want me to follow his car so I proceeded to go to the journey by myself. Should be easy. Ayer Rajah Expressway leading to the Central Expressway, turn right and then ride along Havelock road.
I rode along Ayer Rajah Expressway, and then exited the Central Expressway as I was supposed to but I couldnt recognize any landmarks. What made it worse was that it started to rain heavily. Raindrops started to fall on me like tiny spikes. I never realised how painful it was to ride in the rain.
I stopped by the Tanjong Pagar Railway to consult my streetdirectory book and after getting the directions proceeded on my journey again.
Cold, soaking wet and miserable, I finally found the right road but I still couldnt find the hotel. It was so annoying.
Only when I left that I finally found the building. Printed on the high rise hotel in red words, River View Hotel. I could almost hear the angels sing.
So stressed out I was, I signed up for the karaoke competition on a whim. And guess what? Me and my partner won first in the duet category!
Hee Hee hee!
