Thinking of getting a Tattoo?

Ask yourself these questions first.
Would you wear the same clothes every day? 
Or would you prefer variety?

Why go for something permanent when you can change the design anytime you feel like.

I am quite sure that there will be an occasion for something permanent... 
BUT... think carefully before you make your choice.

Remember... there are options for permanent & temporary tattoos.

Look Ma, I got a Henna Tattoo
The ink on her skin raises eyebrows wherever she goes.

But unlike tattoos, the intricate art on Miss Nadia Rahmat's body can be easily removed.

That is because the designs are inked using henna, a plant-based dye.

The designer in question is her friend, henna artist Tiffany Tan, 24, who manages a Japanese art gallery.

Ms Tan, who started dabbling in the art last year after being invited to an event featuring tattoo artists, said: "My inspiration comes from everyone. It's all about the fusion and collaboration with clients. Everyone has his/her own idea of what he/she wants."

She added that the clients usually show her a picture of what they would like to have drawn. She would then incorporate her own style into the design, drawing inspiration from traditional henna designs.

Miss Tan said that Miss Nadia encouraged her to do "crazier" designs with henna, after which she started experimenting with various other genres such as Egyptian and Wiccan art.

Her popularity as a henna artist grew after she started posting pictures of designs done on herself and her friends on her Instagram account @lovage, which has almost 50,000 followers.

Said Miss Tan: "It is only through Instagram that people started knowing about my work because that is the only place I post my pictures. The rest was through word of mouth."

At first, she drew only on her friends. But as her popularity grew, she started to get clients willing to pay between $20 and $25 for her art.

Ms Tan can draw at any location, as all she requires is for her client to be seated comfortably.

The impermanence of henna, which lasts up to two weeks, allows her clients to change designs once the henna fades. And Ms Tan's quirky designs have started to get her a small but dedicated following.

Ms Carolyn Kan, 42, founder and designer of Carrie K. Artisan Jewellery, said: "Tiffany's work is funky and contemporary, it is not something you expect from henna art."

My wife & daughter were with me in Australia and this brand of 'Macadamia Cookies ~ Butter Shortbread ~ Borlands, Australia' just took my breath away. 

I love it. It has a nice crunch and still soft, so soft that I think my 80 year old father-in-law will be able to eat it.

News ~ Nicole Seah to make her acting debut in SG50 film 1965

News ~ Nicole Seah to make her acting debut in SG50 film 1965

Nicole Seah to make her acting debut in SG50 film 1965
TODAYonline > Entertainment > Movies, Singapore

SINGAPORE — Former opposition politician Nicole Seah, who attracted much attention during the 2011 General Election, is back in the limelight — making her movie debut in the highly-anticipated SG50 film, 1965.

Following inquiries to various parties, TODAY can confirm that the former second assistant secretary-general of the National Solidarity Party — who resigned from the party in August — will be playing the main supporting role of Mei, the wife of a police inspector played by MediaCorp artiste Qi Yuwu.

“It seems ironic right? That I moved to Bangkok for some solace and suddenly I’m in a movie,” Ms Seah, 28, said with a laugh during a phone interview yesterday from Bangkok, where she is now based after moving to the Thai capital earlier this year to further her career in advertising.

Ms Seah, whose debut role sees her portraying a 29-year-old Singaporean housewife and mother of one, will be speaking both Mandarin and Malay in the movie.

1965, a movie to mark Singapore’s 50th anniversary next year, follows the stories of locals and immigrants in the years leading up to independence and focuses on the fragility of racial harmony. It also stars Mr Lim Kay Tong as former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew, and Ms Joanne Peh.

Ms Seah, the second-most popular politician online — after Mr Lee Kuan Yew — during the 2011 polls, said her first instincts were to say “no” when director Randy Ang offered her the role.

“I’m fully aware that there will be huge scrutiny and people are going to say things. And honestly, if it were any other movie, I really wouldn’t have done it,” said Ms Seah, who was genial throughout the interview.

The film is currently being shot in Batam and TODAY understands Ms Seah has about eight more days of shooting left. Ms Seah said she decided to accept the role as the script was interesting and 1965 is markedly different from other local films.

“I really love local films, but a lot (are) about HDB (Housing and Development Board flats), the PSLE (Primary School Leaving Examination) and yes, all these issues are really relevant to us on a daily basis. But I just think we are so much more than just that. There are so many more dimensions to being Singaporean,” she said.

“And there are parts of our history that people don’t really think about or talk about on a daily basis. So, the fact that we are bringing that aspect, that part of Singapore, to life from the standpoint of people who have lived during that era is really interesting. And it’s not only from a Lee Kuan Yew biopic kind of standpoint.”

As for the possible brickbats that might come her way, Ms Seah is determined to take it on the chin. “There are going to be tons of people out there who will say things like, ‘Oh, politicians and actresses are like the same thing!’.

“There are going to be naysayers who will say I’m just asking for attention. And I’m well and fully aware of the potential backlash that could happen from taking on a role like this.

“But then, I thought to myself, ‘Why should I be governed by what people think? And why should I be so afraid of what people might say or might think of me just because I agree to do a movie?’ ... It’s nothing controversial or something extremely provocative.”

Ms Seah described her involvement in the movie production as a great learning and humbling experience. “It’s been a huge step out of the comfort zone and a challenging experience. But hey, I like challenges. I like being uncomfortable.”

Warning! Profanities ahead...

This is a little funny... BUT... do NOT be mistaken. This is NOT giving up. This is realizing and knowing that continuing in the same way is pointless. It is time to sit and think... 'how can I do different?'

Poem ~ Singlish Rap ~ Dinner Tim Sum

1st... the story. I'm going to relate this in Singlish so do NOT check my English. 

Friends told us this kopitiam got good Wonton Noodles that opens at 7am. We went there for Breakfast on Monday morning but Wonton Noodles close. Since other stalls were open, we ordered other food. 

Wife went to order Kopi (coffee). Sign above this stall showed Kopi. But the grumpy lady there said, "kopi. the other side." When wife pointed to her that the sign say Kopi, she curtly said, "this Chicken Rice Stall... lah!". 

This same lady was also serving the Kopi. Wife ordered Kopi and Soft-boiled egg. Soft-boiled egg comes with Hot-water. After waiting a few minutes, wife proceeds to break egg which came out too soft and runny. Lady comes back, sees the egg and says grumpily, "Aiyah, wait 7 minutes laaahhhhh... Aiyooooohhhh!". Wife said, "I am not coming back here, ever again." 

There was a Tim Sum Stall there preparing to open so we could not have it for breakfast. It looked good. When wife emailed me and asked "where are we going for dinner?" This is what I wrote.

Dinner Tim Sum

But we don't care...

Prostate Cancer ~ 6 things to know

News Article
6 things to know about Prostate Cancer
Sources: Singapore Cancer Society; The Straits Times' Mind Your Body

The prostate is the gland below a man's bladder that produces fluid for semen. Prostate cancer occurs when the cells in the prostrate grow and multiply uncontrollably, eventually spreading to surrounding tissues, lymph nodes, skeletal bones and other regions of the body. -- ST GRAPHIC

Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong underwent successful surgery at Singapore General Hospital for prostate cancer last Saturday.

Mr Goh, 73, was prime minister from 1990 to 2004. He is expected to make a full recovery as the cancer was localised and detected early, said his doctor, Dr Sim Hong Gee.

Here are six things you should know about this type of cancer:

1. The prostate is the gland below a man's bladder that produces fluid for semen. Prostate cancer occurs when the cells in the prostrate grow and multiply uncontrollably, eventually spreading to surrounding tissues, lymph nodes, skeletal bones and other regions of the body.

2. Prostate cancer is on the rise here. According to the Singapore Cancer Registry, 3,456 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer from 2009 to 2013. This makes it the third most common cancer among men in Singapore and the fifth leading cause of cancer deaths.

3. Men aged 50 and above are at the greatest risk. Age, family history and a high-fat diet may also increase your risk.

4. There are no warning signs of early prostate cancer. The symptoms of advanced prostate cancer include difficulty in passing urine due to obstruction to the passage of urine, back pain due to the spread of cancer to the bone and weakness or swelling of lower limbs due to cancer obstructing the lymphatic channels.

5. A key way to monitor signs of the cancer is with the prostate specific antigen (PSA) test. However, this test has come under controversy in recent years as it has been said to lead to misdiagnosis and overtreatment. A very high PSA level suggests the presence of prostate cancer - but the test is not specific, so there may be other non-cancerous causes for high readings too. Despite that, doctors here have since said that the test should not be dismissed as it remains useful.

6. For localised prostate cancer, treatment involves prostatectomy, a major surgery to remove the prostate and adjacent seminal vesicles. Radiation therapy is an alternative.

POSB ~ Retirement Plan 2014

I've just spent some time doing this Blog for various reasons.

I like mathematics:
~ if a day of savings cost $10 a day, then
~ a year would cost $3,650 ( = 365 x 10).
~ and to add $10 every 4 years during the Leap Year

I like savings:
I have always liked the idea of savings and retirement have always been something I have been planning, which began way, way back even while I was as a child.

I like GIF Animations:
I just happen to like animation so I'm dabbling with creation of GIF files. 
There are 2 Websites that I use to help me do these. They are...
Scroll down to see my GIF making adventure.

3rd and Final attempt using 'Screencast-O-Matic'

This is a bigger image. Done so that the 'Screencast-O-Matic' stamp will appear smaller when i shrink the whole image. Click on image to enlarge.

2nd attempt using 'Screencast-O-Matic'

Found that I could actually start the animation with a button at the bottom left corner of the image. I realize that the 'Screencast-O-Matic' stamp was too big.

1st attempt using 'Screencast-O-Matic'

Had to start the Flash animation using the right mouse click. You can see the mouse at the almost top right hand corner of this GIF animation.
