Happy Mother’s Day!

May 14, 2006

I would like to wish my mother a truly Happy Mother’s Day! You are the greatest mum one can ever have and all three of us are testament to your success! More than just mere tokens of gratitude, the gifts are simply symbols of our love for you! I love you Mak!

Anyway, the cake above was a Premium D24 Cake from Emicakes. When I ordered the durian cake, I did not know what to expect, except, well durian! But the cake totally exceeded my expectations in terms of its taste, texture, aroma and over all presentation. Its simple design is truly exquisite, and does not distract the eaters from the truly intoxicating aroma of the durian. (And I mean that in a good way!) What I found truly shocking was the layers of durian cream in the cake itself, and I mean 100% durian cream taken off the fruit itself! Even a non-durian fan like me could help but take a second helping of the cake, simply because it was so good! AAHH!!!

Happy Mother’s Day!


Singapore’s ruling PAP share of vote falls

May 7, 2006

SINGAPORE, May 7 (Reuters) – Singapore’s ruling People’s Action Party (PAP) won 66.6 percent of the votes cast, down from 75.3 percent in the previous election in 2001, state television said on Sunday.
Earlier, the elections department said the PAP won 82 out of 84 seats in parliament, the same number of seats it had in the outgoing parliament.

Well no surprise. PAP retained its position in Tampines GRC. I was very sad over the fact that Aljunied GRC still went to the PAP and that Mr Steve Chiva still could not win the seat in Chua Chu Kang SMC. Although both lost by relatively smaller margins as compared to the rest. Thankfully Mr Low Thia Khiang and Mr Chiam See Tong retained their seats for Hougang and Potong Pasir SMCs. I guess there are people who are not so easily swayed by 80 million dollar lift upgrades or new parks in their constituencies. The biggest loser? No surprise again, with SDP losing by a significant majority in Sembawang GRC.

Ugh. No more election analysis from me. Time to sleep and think about it tomorrow.
