Post A Week2011: What does “home” mean to you?

What does “home” mean to me? How would describe what it feels like to feel “at home”?

Let me link you to one of the familiar songs that Singaporeans used to hear it during national day parade in 1998.

Home is a place that I won’t feel alone. Home is a place where I can feel the warmth. Home is a place where I can rest and relax in my own comfort zone with my bed and toys.

This song describes part of what I feel what is home like to me. Familiar with such a place and streets of where you live at. Is not it great?

How about you?

Music: Jay Chou’s Fragrance of Rice (稻香-周杰伦)

稻香 by周杰伦

It’s quite a meaningful song to motivate people when things do not go on the right way. I do like the lyrics and the melody of the song that was composed and written by Jay Chou. He did put in a lot of effort to write such a great song like this.

Hope you will enjoy this song 稻香 (Fragrance of Rice) by周杰伦 Jay Chou.

Goodbye Borders Singapore!

Borders Singapore at Parkway Parade

Yesterday was the last day of operation at Borders Singapore at Parkway Parade. I went directly to Parkway Parade straight after work just to take picture of the shop as this was the last remaining Borders Singapore shop left after the closure of Borders at Wheelock Place.

Although I live near Parkway Parade, however, I did not visit Borders bookstore that often until the recent news that Borders plans to close down its Singapore branches. People started to visit Borders to get great deals and cheaper books. Me too. I bought a few books at Borders Parkway branch at a great discounted rate. Some even took baskets from the stores too.

Felt sad that Borders Singapore will be gone. Not much bookstores will welcome people to read the books without buying them.

It was a rare opportunity for me to witness all the Borders Singapore staff saying thank you and good bye yesterday night at Parkway Parade branch as well as sadness as I won’t see Borders near my home anymore.

This will remain as part of my memories. 26 Sept 2011 – Last day of Borders Singapore at Parkway Parade –  It’s time to say goodbye!

Hugh Jackman stars as Charlie Kenton in Real Steel (coming in Singapore Cinemas on 6 Oct 2011)

Hugh Jackman stars as Charlie Kenton in Real Steel the movie. It will be shown in Singapore Cinemas on 6 October 2011 onwards! =)

 

A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech, “Real Steel” stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring.

Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender.

As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.
