One way street? think again before you cross the road!

It's quite outraging to read on the papers about the woman who was knocked into coma by a reversing vehicle on a ONE-WAY street to get a parking lot ...

a mere fine of $500 with demerit points were imposed on that driver ...

As a pedestrian. . i would have to say. . . .

There are many inconsiderate and downright STUPID drivers/motorcyclists in SINGAPORE!

I have seen vehicles reversing or even driving against the traffic along a entire stretch of road!

Even the pedestrian pavements are no longer safe! Motorcyclists are zooming at high speeds along pavements and even honking/screaming/scolding pedestrians who block their breakneck ride to their destination.

But then as a motorist. .

The onus should be on the pedestrian to check before stepping onto the road....

simply put - the road is meant for cars just like the pedestrian walk-ways are meant for people (and not bicycles/motorbikes)... u want to walk onto the road, u, as a pedestrian, should check before u step onto the road or try to cross the road...

furthermore, as a pedestrian, u do not have blindspots and it's a lot easier for u to spot a big moving mass (i.e. the vehicle) than for the driver to spot u since u might be in a blindspot. besides, if anything happens, it's ur life at stake so u ought to take more precautions...

Two headed snake??

Maybe. .

On a side note, had a damn super happening weekend in JB.

Lost a parkin ticket.
Lost my passport
Caught with 40 pirated DVDs at SG customs.

Anyway came out of the whole ordeal unscathed, save for waiting for the DVDs to be censored and returned to me.

Yes. . u hear it right. .

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at this infinate goodness,
wisdom and power.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Howdy

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."
