Oh Let’s Just Call It What It Is… The Friday Post…


Forever and ever til a toxic waste spill

1) Awkward wedding photo bombs.

2) Can’t improve on: funniest autocorrects of Aug

3) The quote that may change your view: “If (Lance) Armstrong used banned substances, he was only leveling the playing field. He’s still the one who overcame the odds.” Liked quote, found it here: Newsweek’s Buzz Bissinger still believes in Armstrong.

Not that I condone cheating, but that I condone partial disciplinary action if it might affect a half billion dollar-strong cancer foundation. I don’t think the guy who receives aid to fight his cancer cares Mr Armstrong cheated though yeah it’s uncool. But you want to throw the book at cheaters? That’s great – get ‘em all. Start with the ones that don’t have half billion dollar-strong cancer foundations.

4) ”For every hour a Facebook user spends on the site, Team Zuck makes 6.2 cents. LinkedIn makes 20 times that.”

Aren’t you even a little curious why investors (more than consumers) love LinkedIn?

5) What this?

This a squid’s skin reacting to listening to Insane In The Brain by Cypress Hill. Backyard Brains hooked it to an iPod Nano. (Think one of Rockstar’s I Wonder Why mentioned squid communicate by changing the colors on their skin, among others.)

Oh, something to do on Friday at the office. All you need are a squid, electrodes and iPod. (Well you probably have the iPod/phone.) From Bored Panda.

Gotta have another one:

Awwww the dolphin is so happy for them!!!

Ps: 

(Old pic that I never managed to wait til Merdeka to post…)

SELAMAT HARI MERDEKA, YA!

Pps: How we survived the week coming up; just need a bit more time to finish the post…

About Aileen

I blog about living and raising my son in Hong Kong - where toddlers have entrance interviews, parents keep test score spreadsheets, private school debentures can trade for more than half a million USD. Raising Rockstar's the most important thing I'll ever do. We show our true colors by the choices we make in bringing up our children. My blog is a message to my toddler son, about what the world and his parents are like today - for when he becomes a teenager and knows everything.

      Not very much that I know of, among those I mix with… Maybe as another excuse to gather for drinks or a meal, but I think not as “yeet lau” as Malaysian/Singaporean brand of CNY with the “lo hay” which is not that common in HK… I start to think of it as “Lo Hay Pride” :D

      If I could be presumptuous enough to say I think Malaysians here do more of a “Kevin Bacon Game” i.e. “Oh you’re Malaysian too, do you know — who is also —’s friend and at — school where —- also sends their kid to school…” Some HK mums I know do that re Malaysians too, “Oh you’re Malaysian, do you know — who is also Malaysian in — class/school/living in this development etcetcetc”

      I recently then also met a HK mum whose daughter is attending SIngapore International School (not say HK IS or C IS)… Hope to ask her more if we can get to know each other better, when I initially asked her her reply was “My daughter’s personality is very different from my son (who was playing with Ryan)’s – she loves homework”
