My original choice of a phone was the HTC Desire but the darned thing was upgrading so fast that the price went beyond what I was prepared to pay. I decided to settle for a lower end HTC phone but at the shop I ended up with this:
A LG phone! Ha ha so far I don't know anybody who owns a LG phone but after playing around with it I must say I am pleased with the purchase since it only caused me S$46.00!
Battery life was okay. Roughly 10 - 12 hours of standby plus some fiddling around so far. Fairly easy to use although some functions still leave old foggy like me lost but got the Princess to the rescue.
Camera quality is impressive. The 5m camera phone took fairly good pictures:
And so now with a data plan I can now use Whatsapp, FB on the go and etc... So I am in contact with the world 12 hours a day? Heck no There is limited, actually almost no signal in that little corner where I sits in the office. Sighed! Back to square one!

Obviously, that was a most ridiculous and stupid solution and this immediately led to an outcry on the web as bloggers, forummers and everybody took up the cudgels for the Indian family with many baying for the blood of the PRC family, presumably to cook curry! Ha ha but fear not, they just want the PRC family to balek kampong. The other half of the vitriol went to the mediator and CMC for proposing the solution. And of course the gahmen got slammed as well for neglecting the rights of local and championing that of the FT. What type of silly solution is that? Next we know, some other FT will complain of durian smell and durian will be banned from HDB flats or worse the country! I think those buggers at CMC need to be sent for a course on learning how to mediate.

Anyway, with the closure of the Margaret Drive Hawker Centre, he has now moved to Telok Blangah Crescent. Since the move late last year, I have not been there and so I was all excited when a friend invited us there to sample his father's Char Kway Teow and it turns out his father is the famous Hai Kee Char Kway Teow!
So a big group of us gathered for a Char Kway Teow feast and we had CKT with hum (cockles), more chilli, less chilli, no hum etc. After a rather lengthy wait, (son also got to queue up), we finally got our order.

Thank goodness it did not! It still taste the same, not too wet and not too dry and comes with a generous heap of cockles. Mind you, this is sinful food and not for the health conscious but I enjoyed every single bit of it and slurped down every single morsel even before the rest of the noodles came for the other people in the group! At $3.00 a plate, (I think price has increased), it is still worth every single cents if you don't mind the cholesterol inducing oil and lard!

Whoever approved this need to be thrown off the floating platform and fed to the sharks!
