Cockroach is back!

posted by cockroach//蟑螂 at 10:40 AM

Hello! Cockroach is back with much awake now. Ha! Ha! Ha! Image people keep asking you to drink so many wines and their excuse is “We are driving and you aren’t driving.” But I am under age, how to drink, and later police found out knock my door while sleeping how?

Oh, by the way, there is a lot of interesting stuff happen on Sunday open ceremony and the open ceremony dinner. I was dieing to draw them out, but my drawing isn’t good. I will still try, see will it get published or not.

For the last few days, I had been quite busy, busy helping to write 2 books (even though cockroach English isn’t good) and also continue reading the storybook (It’s a kid story book but I do find it meaningful even though I had read it several times.) and yup, I finished it. Also, help pigirl to write a game guild and will publish soon. So I think I am almost done with my report on what I am ding for the pass few days. Keep checking the site please, and enjoy your stay.

Drunk now...

posted by cockroach//蟑螂 at Monday, November 28, 2005 12:58 AM

I will blog tomorrow. I am drunk now. But thank goodness is not drunk until I can’t even walk to the taxi stand. Drink too much today, all uncles fault! Okay, seriously I need to rest. Em… Sorry if there is any typing error, and see you tomorrow.

Now feeling like taking off clothes and jump onto the bed. Em…for…because I am now too hot, so…I want to…I want to…I want to SLEEP! What are your thinking about? Ha! Ha!

See, Cockroach so power. Drunk also can make joke. *Unless your don't find it funny* Joke idea from here.

Guess! Guess! Guess! 我猜!我猜!我猜猜猜![Nov. (2)]

Guess is back! This time round I won’t be so stupid ask you to guess who is the person in the photo, but we will guess something that maybe girls would be interested. As your know, my mom says there is SGD$5 per tie, so on the next day, Dad went and find and brought 2 tie for me. And here is your question:

《我猜!我猜!我猜猜猜!》回来了!这次我没有像上次那么笨。我不会问你们照片里的人是谁,而是问一些女人有兴趣的东西。大家都知道,我的老妈说新加坡的默默角落有领带卖新币5 夬钱的。第二天,老爸就自己去找,结果买了两条领带给我。哈哈!问题来了:

Q: Guess how much does each tie cost.

Because I don’t want your start scratching your head, here are the hints:
1.Mom said SGD$10 very expensive, would dad go and buy more than SGD$10?
2.Dad didn’t mange to find tie that sold SGD$5.
3.Here are photo of the tie, the photo isn’t very good. But let me tell you something, the tie design is excellent with the material used.

2.老爸没有找到新币5 夬钱的领带。

Guess the price. 猜价钱

Don’t say too much, start guessing now! Please provide E-Mail so I can send your gift if you guess correctly. Of course won’t be like the first one, give your cockroach photo. Ha!

Buying tie

posted by cockroach//蟑螂 at Tuesday, November 22, 2005 1:27 AM

Bilingual Fingers//双语手指 - Ties

Today is a wasteful day. Why? I went out wanted to buy ties, but ended up get nothing home because of my mother.

I already give my mother face by going Bedok Interchange and buy. She says her friend said that there got and some places sell $5 per tie. Cockroach here also wants to save money, so went there and take a look.

Asked a few shops, they sell ties in the range of $10 to $20, which consider very cheap. So cockroach started to ask help from those shop owners, ask them to help Cockroach choose ties. But…

Cockroach: Uncle, how much is the tie?
Uncle: First time is it? Charge you $10.
Mom: Oh… (Already not happy, she wants to buy $5 tie…)
Cockroach: Eh…Uncle can help me choose, see I like it or not. I first time buy tie.
Uncle: *choose a tie with pictures of a panda eating bamboo stick*
Cockroach (Thinking): Got people wear tie that got panda eating bamboo stick pictures?
Cockroach: Don’t want!!! I don’t want picture, just normal tie will do, this look very cartoon.

Uncle: Don’t want pictures har?
Uncle: *choose again, and choose a super red tie*

Cockroach: Eh… got other type? I don’t want it too be so bright, maybe dark colours will some lines? *Actually saw a tie that I like. It is a light and dark blue with lines that make it into lots of small little square.*
Uncle: How about this one? *Uncle chooses the tie I am aiming!!!*
Cockroach: Yes, like it very much. $10 is it?
Uncle: yea, give you discount is $10.
Mom (Suddenly shouted): $10??? Cannot discount some more?
Uncle: Cannot liao lah. See *show the price tag* from $12.90 to $10, discount a lot liao leh. I see him student I discount so many.
Mom: but $10 very expensive leh.
Uncle: No lah, this one is good material, this tie no matter what won’t have folded lines. Why not discount $1 more. $9 for this tie, very cheap liao.
Mom: eh… we walk around first and come back and see want or not.
*Mom drag cockroach away.*

I want that tie! I like that tie very much! Eyeing for that for more than 1 minute! The tie design and colour represent honesty, firm, gentlemen, mature, and many more! So much that I can’t list them all. I am so dieing to get it but mom said…

Mom: Auntie Susu said our area, Tampines got $5, come here pay $10 for a tie for what? Don’t want lah, why you so stupid?
Cockroach: but where?
Mom: Don’t know leh, Auntie Susu forgot liao. She last year got buy $5 tie for his son.
Cockroach: you don’t know where, expected we look shop by shop in whole Tampines is it? And now the shop still around meh? Won’t the shop close down because of big lose?
Mom: *Scold and scold and scold…because I want that $10 tie…*

Here is the problem when Aunties believe other Aunties words. And worst, believe with no sense. Last year price can be $5, but this year GST increase, this and that increase, how can it be $5? And I don’t know where to get that $5 tie, will I like the design? Will it suit me? Where is the shop located???!!! *sigh*

Still, I ended up didn’t buying that tie, wasting one whole night hanging a round Bedok Interchange. A waste, from $12.90 to $9…maybe mom is right, maybe there is a $5 tie selling one small corner of Singapore. We shall see can we get a $5 tie or not.

Singapore Aunties! 《新加坡阿嫂!》

posted by cockroach//蟑螂 at Sunday, November 20, 2005 3:36 AM

This post is in Singlish and hope other people don’t mind as the conversation that will posted is in Singlish, sorry about that! Recommend Teachers, student and parent to read it. Muhahaha!!!

This few days, I don’t have peaceful day. Why? Because of those parents, a group of devils who always worry about their children.

It’s end of year, and also marked as primary school student getting back their report books. And of course, Primary 1 kids will be getting their report books for their very first time. This will also make their devil parents nervous and worry. They will be worry their child overall marks, class position and etc. Yeah, this had made those parents so worry that everybody is talking about it when they are fetching their child from school.

So one Wednesday, the student will be getting their report books. Great news for the parent who will be using the result to make money! I mean, parent who will be using the result slip and go and apply non-government companies or organisation scholarship. Seriously, I am not joking. Some parent “invest” (tuition) a lot in their child to get $50 to $200 scholarship from non-government companies or organisation scholarship.

Of course, some parent would want their child result slip got photocopy because they want to apply those things. So got one auntie say:

Die lah, tonight no time go out and photocopy the result slip. How???

Cockroach being a nice guy, told her:

You can come to my house and photocopy! Free of charge, can come any time after school, but not so late. I want to sleep.

So cockroach had done a good thing, right? Cockroach is a nice and good boy right? But what I said to the auntie had caused me a lot of trouble.

On that night itself, a lot of people came to my house and want their child result get photocopied. It weird, I only told one auntie and there are about 30 aunties came to my house and wanted me to help them…

*Bang bang bang*(knock on the door)
Cockroach: Eh…who are you looking for?
Auntie 1: Oh…come here to photocopy result slip hor?
Cockroach: Auntie May not free so ask you to come?
Auntie 1: No lah, I don’t know her. I heard my friend here can help to photocopy result slip. Free some more, so I come lorh.
Cockroach: Oh…

And it is not Auntie May told them! Auntie May came at about 9pm and the Auntie came at 8 plus. It just got spread within hours! Guess who told them…

Cockroach: Auntie May! You told other people here can photocopy result slip?
Auntie May: No lah, Why? Those aunties come and photocopy also?
Cockroach: Yeah lorh, don’t know who so big mouth go and spread. You got tell other people or not?

Suddenly, got someone came to us and said…

Auntie 4444: Oh, I told some of them. I heard your conversation outside school. So thought I free one mah then tell other this lobang lorh.

Cockroach: …

Seriously, how can that person go round and spread? I am not angry about what. Is that, those aunties came to my house…

Switch on lights, fans, TV, as if this is their house. And also, talk and laughs and not watching their TV!!! Waste my electric…

Worst, on the second day, at around 6 am in the morning, some one knock on the door…

Uncle 5566: Eh… here photocopy result slip har? Can help me photocopy? I am rushing off to work.

Wah kao! That uncle knock on the door at 6 am in the MORNING just want me to photocopy the result slip.

Okay, cockroach cannot get so angry, if not will grow old faster. Relax, Relax…Think about the funny things that those aunties made.

Funny matter 1:
Explaining how the 100% for the end of year being calculated…

Cockroach: CA 2 stands 20% and the End of year exam stand 50%.
Auntie 4488: Then other 30% leh? Teacher eat it away har?
Cockroach: Ha…ha…ha…your joke not funny. The another 30% is from CA 1 and SA1 the first half year one.
Auntie 4488: Ai yo, why like that one? First half year don’t care liao mah. Why also include? Other school also like that meh? Ai yo, want to find that teacher liao lorh.
Cockroach: yea, other schools also like that, even secondary schools.
Auntie 4488: chey…*start scolding her child* you see lah; pull you down 4 marks lah. If not can get second in class liao. You lah, you lah…

Funny matter 2:
Asking the parent to sign at the first page in report book, Specimen Signature. See, Cockroach good boy, also help the school to check whether the parent got give Specimen signature or not.

Cockroach: Eh…Auntie, the front page not signed yet.
Auntie 2505: For what?
Cockroach: Eh…maybe next time teacher want to check the sign is it sign by parent or those little devils.
Auntie 2505: No need lah, so troublesome.
Child 2505: Tea-cher said ne-ed to sign al-so.
Cockroach: yeah, here is the pen, sign here, and ask uncle sign here.
Auntie 2505: Ai yo, so troublesome. Like didn’t sign the school will collapse like that.
Cockroach: Eh…next time if I become teacher, teach you grandson. I said very troublesome to take bus and go to school and teach. So no need to teach liao har?
Auntie 2505: Not the same lah. That will be your job, teach. Our job is just look at the result. And get money from the what …what “save you”.
Cockroach: It’s Edusave, not save you. It is just money, cannot save you.

Aunties nowadays getting more creative, from Edusave become “save you”. Ha! Ha! Ha!

Funny matter 3:
Last by not least, I think the following auntie very cute. Why cute? Carry on and read it!

Auntie cute cute: Eh…can help me put back the result slip inside the pocket?
Cockroach: huh? Why? You don’t know how to put? You come here just want me to put your result slip back into the pocket?!?!
Auntie cute cute: Because I scare the result slip spoil if I put inside mah.
Cockroach: then why the result slip hot hot one?
Auntie cute cute: oh…because I iron the result slip, to make it more smooth.
Cockroach: Oh…Ha! Ha! Ha!

Suddenly, think that Singapore Aunties are really funny. Because of their child, they made so many jokes. Ha! Ha! "Singapore Aunties!" Chinese Podcast coming out! Is the story friction or non-friction? You decide! Hope you like this "Singapore Aunties!" Chinese Podcast Intro. : ) 《新加坡阿嫂!》中文Podcast即将发行。是真是假,由你来决定!

What makes life 100%?

posted by cockroach//蟑螂 at Friday, November 18, 2005 12:24 PM

I got this from Mediacrop Radio Class 95 FM. And think it will be great to share it with others.

For those of you who are mathematically inclined.

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?
We have all been to those meeting where someone wants over 100% out of you.
How about achieving 103%? Here’s a little math that might prove helpful.

What makes life 100%?

If: A B C D E F G H I J K M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
Is represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26

Then: HARDWORK (8 1 18 4 23 15 18 11) = 98%
And: KNOWLEDGE (11 14 15 23 12 5 4 7 5) = 96%
But: ATTITUDE (1 20 20 9 20 21 4 5) = 100%
And: BULLSHIT (2 21 12 12 19 8 9 20) = 103%

So, it stands to reason that hard work ad knowledge will get you close, attitude will get you there, but bullshit will put you over the top.

And now, let’s take a look how far ass kissing will take you.

ASSKISSING (1 19 19 11 9 19 19 9 14 7) = 127% (WOW!)

So…What do you think?

There are two stations in North-east line that had not open yet. Few months ago, people put white cardboard elephant at Buongkok station to “beg” the MRT Company to open the station. I know its old news already. And yesterday, it is announce that Buongkok station will open next year. Yea, is it with this help of cardboard elephant? By the way, it is not my topic of today. I don’t care even bother about that station, but bother about the other station that is not open yet. I wonder why, wonder why…

I asked around why other station, Woodleight is not open and yet nobody went to complain, nobody went and put white cardboard elephant there. It makes me curious, very curious. But no one willing to gives me the answer. Most of them will say:

“You don’t know? It is better than you don’t know than you know.”
I can’t stand it anymore! Really, no one wants to tell me why that station is not open until today. There got treasure? So government needs to go there and dig out all treasure? Eh… I don’t think so, so I look more information in the Internet, and I found out…

(scroll down...)

Yeah, there is a lot of “treasure” there. In fact, the Singapore government really moving the treasure to other place and the place is call cemetery, and the treasure is the dead people.

So now I know why, why nobody complains about Woodleight station is not open yet. Because people living there cannot complain and they don’t need to take MRT! Imaging one day, there is white cardboard elephant at Woodleight station, the MRT suddenly stop at Woodleight station and the door open even though the station is not open yet…

NS in Singapore

posted by cockroach//蟑螂 at 2:48 AM

This few months when I visit some blogs, they are complaining about NS (National Services). NS is introduced in 1967. All 18 year old able-bodied male citizens were call for part time or full time national service for training and commanded by a small regular force.

“!@#$%^&*, who is the stupid idiot came out with the idea of NS?”

“We, the Singaporean guy did not benefit because, oversea workers don’t have to go NS, and they can show and prove themselves while we are away for training.”
And etc, etc, complaining none stop and cursing the person who came out with the idea of NS.

But ever wonder people like me, who want to get muscle, six packs, National Services army training is the great place. In fact, guy who went there will become fitter, and of course, as what Kim (My friend) said “When a guy just comes out from NS, he is a real 100% big man with man smell.”

Cockroach here can’t longer take it. So here I am! Here, the Cockroach will give people lesson why NS got started in the first place.

To defence Singapore, Singapore had used a two-pronged approach for peace and security which is Deterrence and Diplomacy. And under Deterrence, we got this Military strength which stated that “armed forces are powerful enough to deter any aggressor – a potential enemy thinks twice before attacking.”

In deterrence, we got A Citizen Armed Forces, Total defence, Defence Industry and Military Co-operation. And “Citizen Armed Forces” is how NS come from.

Based on the premise that Singapore must be military self-reliant and ready to defend itself and Singaporeans are duty-bound to defend their country. With comprised only 50 officers and 1,000 men, and two small naval vessels, no air force at the time in 1965, NS is introduced. Image, only 50 office and 1,000 men to fight for country at that time, with small population of less than two million and REMEMBER, manpower is need in factories in industries. The government have no choice to come out with this idea. Once more, at that time, there were insufficient funds to support a professional army. (That time Singapore no money!!!)


Think again, now Singapore is rich, now men are busy working for money. Now is “No money, No talk.” Maybe, Singapore may change a bit, can we don’t go back for training after our NS? Or, maybe, gives us SD$1,000 per day after our NS for the days we went back for training. Ha! Ha! Ha!

Hope that people who read it will love NS and not hate NS. Looking forward your NS life and blog about it in a fun way!

“Code 9” system

posted by cockroach//蟑螂 at Thursday, November 10, 2005 4:20 PM

In my hotmail, I received some chain mails again. But luckily the hotmail account is for friends and schoolmate. And gmail is for internet friends. And one more account hosted in a company is for serious things only. Ha! Ha! But this few days in my Hotmail account I received some interesting E-mail. Yup, they are the same E-mail but from different people. I wonder why so many people send that E-mail to me, so decide to read it.

In the E-mail, it wrote (E-mail got edited):

There is a new online code out, kind like “lol” (Laugh Out Loud) or “brb” (Be Right Back). This one is a little different though. You all know how it feels when you're talking to someone online, and you Mom is standing right behind you, reading every word that is on the screen. Then of course, the other person swears vulgarity or talks about how much you love your crush or something and your Mom reads it and tells you to get offline that instant, and not talk to
that person anymore. Well, what can we do about that? To solve this problem, now we have started the "Code 9" system.

In code 9, u simply presses "9" when your parent or sibling is watching over your shoulder as you type. That way, the other person will know what you are talking about, and begin a conversation about homework or something. When your Mom or dad leaves, press "99" to let the other person know that they are gone, so you can have a normal conversation again.

I wonder who came out with this “Code 9” system. I am sure it is by someone who always talks about sex, swears vulgarity or talks about how much they love their crush etc on MSN. Ha! Good idea for them, but I am going to forward this to all parent, to let them know this “Code 9” system…Muhahahahaha!!!

I am Singaporean!

posted by cockroach//蟑螂 at Wednesday, November 09, 2005 1:40 AM

此博客帖子(Blog post)会在英文文章后被翻译。

I love Singapore, I really love Singapore, please stop saying I don’t sound like a Singaporeans!!!!! I am getting more fear of people saying that I don’t sound and speak like a Singaporean, really, I am so fear of that until I am afraid of speaking to other people.

This begins with Chinese, and happens during June school holiday last year when I am having a conversation with a teacher in school, an old and already retired this year Chinese teacher came to me and ask “You are not from Singapore, you from Taiwan? Because you don’t speak local and sound like from Taiwan.” Tell you, I got shock of my life, I don’t know head and tail and suddenly a teacher came to me and said I don’t sound local. I politely answer “No” to her and she start to ask another question “Then your parent one of them is Taiwanese?” I reply “No” to her again. She had a weird at me and wonders why I speak with Taiwan voice in Chinese.

Worst things for me are that this year, the first half of the year that teacher takes my class Chinese. Me, the poor guy sitting right in front of the teacher desk, she asked same question again “why you don’t sound like local?” Seriously, one day I really want to give up Chinese, move to the back of the class and join the rest of the class to have Chinese party, a party that don’t listen to Chinese lesson but play during Chinese lesson. Because I feel the stress, how come I am Singaporean but people said I don’t sound like one? But luckily I don’t do that, if not I will regretted it.

It is not the end that is just Chinese part only; I haven’t talk about English, English??!! Yup, got someone told me that my English don’t sound local too. It happens near End of Year exam period when I revise my work in the School library. So one day, after revising I went to the Library lady and start chatting with her. (Eh…That lady I guess she already marry, so don’t anyhow think.) After chatting a while, she suddenly said: “Hey! You are not from Singapore is it? You are oversea student?” Ha! Ha! Ha... I wonder is she insulting me that my English didn’t speak as good as other Singaporeans or praising me that my English have no Singlish (Singapore style English).

I really don’t know why, why people say that I don’t sound local. I AM LOCAL!!!! Please, both my parents born in Singapore, I born in Singapore. And I don’t really know the different between my speaking and other local speaking. I just don’t hear the different, really. I am so stress now, because people said I am not from Singapore, the country I love the most…Even if I don’t speak local, what the problem that caused me don’t speak local? How to speak local if I don’t speak local? Eh…very confusing right?

I hope I really hope that people who read this post, and heard me talking before, tell me, are I don’t speak like local? And also, please when Bilingual Finger English/Chinese Podcast release, please tell me the truth that I speak local or not. Thank you.



我爱新加坡, 我真的很爱新加坡, 请不要跟我说我讲起话来不像来自新加坡!!! 我现在真的很怕人家说我讲起话来不像来自新加坡。而那种恐惧使到我害怕与人谈话。

这从华文开始, 是在去年6月假期期间发生的。那时我有一次与老师在学校交谈时, 有一位满老并且已在今年经退休的华文老师走向我问“你不是新加坡人, 你是从台湾来的? 因为你讲起话来不像来自新加坡,听起来是来自台湾。” 让我告诉你, 我听了吓了一大跳, 我不知道头和尾而老师突然走来讲起话来不像本地人。我很礼貌地回答“不是。”可是她开始问其它问题“那你的父母他们的当中一个是台湾人?” 我再回复她“不是”。她有一种古怪的眼神看着在我,可能在想为什么我讲华文时是台湾音。

最坏的事在今年发生。上半年, 那位老师当了我们的中文老师。可怜的我刚好坐在老师书桌前, 她再问同样问题“为什么您不听起来不像本地人?” 有一天我真的好想要放弃不华文,而搬走到后面去座。在后面参加班上的华文Party。那华文Party是在华文可不听老师讲课的Party。哈!哈!我感觉很有压力。 我在想,为怎么我是新加坡人但人们说我讲起话来不像来自新加坡? 但我幸运没有参加班上的华文Party, 如果有的话我一定会后悔。

我还没讲完呢, 我还没有说说英语的部分, 英语??!! 对咯, 有人告诉我, 说我的英文听起来不像本地人。这是发生在今年终考试间。当我在学校的图书馆里温习功课。有那么一天, 当我在学校的图书馆里温习完功课后更图书馆人员开始聊天。(嗯... 我猜测图书馆人员已经结婚。)。在聊天一会儿以后, 她突然说: “嘿! 你不是新加坡人吗? 你是外国学生?” 哈!哈!哈!我想知道是她欺辱我, 说我的英文没有讲得象其它新加坡人那么好或称赞我的我的英文没有新语(Singlish)。

我真的不知道为什么, 为什么人们说我讲起话来不像来自新加坡。我是本地人!!!! 拜托啦,我的父母都在新加坡生的, 我也是在新加坡生的。而我真的听不出我的音更其他新加坡人没什么两样。我现在感觉很大的压力, 因为人们说我不是从新加坡,我爱新加坡!!!既使如果我讲起话来不像来自新加坡, 什么引述导致我讲起话来不像来自新加坡? 要怎么做才会讲起话来像是来自新加坡? 嗯。。。很乱吧?

我希望, 读到这个博客帖子(Blog post), 和听见我讲话, 告诉我, 我真的讲起话来不像来自新加坡吗? 对了, 请当双语手指英文/中文Podcast 发行后, 告诉我真的讲起话来像不像来自新加坡。谢谢。

有人投诉说本站的中文的博客帖子(Blogger post/ blog post)不多,一来到本站就是英文。根本不像什么双语手指。好啦,好啦。知道是我的错,是我不好,原谅我好吗?因为这几天我都很忙,还有我刚刚才变成一只蟑螂,当一个“双语手指”博客(Blogger)有时还是有点不习惯。有时还会在电脑前抓头, 想今天要有什么语文来blog才好。哈哈哈!!!

对了,不只是中文读者投诉哦。还有英文读者投诉说本站的“Tag!” (七嘴八舌) 都是中文的TAG,害到他们不敢tag。还有说我的英文很烂,不资格写英文blog。可是,要写英文blog要英文很好吗?糟糕,我中英文不好,那我不是不可以当博客了?救命啊!我死都要当博客!!!

1.英文博客帖子(Blogger post/ blog post)会占60%,中文占40%。其中,将会有40% 会翻译成两种语言。(蟑螂自行翻译的。)


-----English Translated-----
Someone complain the site.

Someone complain the site saying that the site Chinese blog post is not many. Once come to the site, it is English everywhere. Not act like a Bilingual Finger. Ok, I know is my fault, I am in the wrong, forgive me please? Because this few days I am very busy and I just become a Cockroach, become a Bilingual Blogger, sometimes I still not use to it. Sometimes I will stare in front of the computer thinking which langue to blog on that day itself. Ha! Ha! Ha!

Oh yea, it is not Chinese reader complaining. Even English reader complaining saying that the “Tag!” got too much Chinese taggers; they are so scare until they (the English taggers) don’t dare to tag. And also, they said I am having bad English, not fit to become an English Blogger. But want to be an English Bloggers need to have good English? Die, both my English and Chinese not good, so I can’t me Bloggers?!?! Help!!! I die also want to be Blogger!!!

About problem, I had thought about it:
1. English blog post will stand 60%, Chinese blog post stand 40%. In which, 40% of the blog post will translated to both English and Chinese. (Cockroach translates by itself.)
2. Improve my English, read more English storybooks.
3. Learn from Lizard, having English and Chinese tag board. So, my blog will go to have two different worlds!

Honestly saying, want to take care of both groups of readers isn’t easy at all.

Cockroach Santa for Christmas

posted by cockroach//蟑螂 at Friday, November 04, 2005 6:19 PM

Cockroach is thinking of becoming a Cockroach Santa for Christmas. Yea right, go round giving gifts to Blogger. Wait a minute; is there a problem with your eye? Go round giving gifts to BLOGGER??? Yup, nothing wrong with your eye, Santa Claus is for kids, so Cockroach Santa is for Blogger. Because kids is afraid of Cockroach, if Cockroach Santa gives gifts to kids, he don’t ever get the chance because when Cockroach Santa get close to them, they will use insecticide and start spraying Cockroach Santa...

Actually, Lizard knew about Cockroach Santa few weeks ago and one day he even said “I am waiting for my Christmas Gift.” But now, I got sad news for him. Cockroach Santa will only choose 3 Blogger to have Christmas Gift and not only that; there will be three packages for the “lucky Blogger” to choose.

Don’t think choose those 3 “Luck Blogger” is not easy. Santa Claus see children got good boy, good girl or not. Then Cockroach Santa will see this 3 had been a good “boy” good “girl” Blogger or not. Ha! Ha! Ha! Cockroach Santa doesn’t have an easy time when choosing this 3 “lucky Blogger”, Okay? Cockroach Santa even got stuck between two Blogger, who should take the last seat of “Lucky Blogger”?

Oh yea, those “Luck Blogger” doesn’t even know what gift is inside the packages! It may be a BIG Cockroach, it maybe something else. Ha! Why should I tell you’re what the Gift going to be? It should be a secret, a secret between my elf and me. No one should know about it even Lizard. Let’s have fun guessing.

I know 3 people are not many. In the world got over millions of Bloggers. So Cockroach Santa came out with a plan. Each “Lucky Blogger” will receive 3 invitation, they can use this invitation to ask Cockroach Santa to send Gift to other friend. Cool eh? How they are going to settle this 3 invitation will be up to them. They may post in their blog to ask who wants it, or maybe gives their loves one a “surprise” (Giving a BIG Cockroach isn’t it a surprise?)

This three lucky Blogger will come from both Singapore and Malaysia. So hope this can make both country people and government relationship better. Becomes friends and not enemy. “Lucky Blogger” blog comes with English, Chinese, or both. They must publish their E-Mail address in their blog or their Blogger profile. So will you be the lucky one? Check your E-Mail on 5th November 2005! E-Mail will send by address of Please don’t send E-Mail said “Cockroach Santa! I want Gift, I want Gift!!!” You not scare; Cockroach Santa will scare one, okay?

P.S: There is some invitation left; you never know you will get invited. Also, Cockroach will be keep looking at this blog post comment and tag! Board. Just leave a comment when you got E-Mail from Cockroach Santa and said a BIG THANK YOU to Cockroach Santa in comment of this blog post.

Honour Blog is Blog that had received a bunch of invitation from Cockroach Santa for their blog readers and their friends. They are selected to be Honour Blog because of their unique blogging style and their blog readers. If you are not selected to be Honour Blog, don’t be sad because you are one of the “Luck Blogger”.

MSN WERID Conversation

posted by cockroach//蟑螂 at Thursday, November 03, 2005 11:00 PM

Few days ago someone added me in MSN but I have totally no idea who is that person. I though it is someone who I had lost contact with or something so I accepted him or her added to my contact list in MSN.

I got no chance to talk to that person. Because every time when I talk to he or she and ask who he or she is, he or she went offline.

Today, just a few minutes ago I manage to ask her a few questions and she replied. But the way she replied is something I don’t understand:

Cockroach says:
Hi, who are you?
Cockroach says:
You added me few days ago
That Person says:

Cockroach / says:
Cockroach says:
Do I know you?
That Person says:
That Person says:
That Person says:
That Person says:

That Person went offline.

Seriously I wonder what the hack the person is typing about… Should I delete him or her???

UPDATE: After a few minutes I post this blog entry, another person added me and same thing happen:

Cockroach says:
Hi. who are you?

Person B says:
pije m ka

Person B went offline.

Why Like that?!?! Are those two from the same person???

CISCO Car Park

posted by cockroach//蟑螂 at Wednesday, November 02, 2005 2:35 PM

This post is in English and will not translate to Chinese.


This post contains Bad quality photos.

Yesterday while I was on my way back home by bus, a guy sitting behind me said “I wonder why this few days I saw so many CISCO people…” I was laughing to myself, thinking “He doesn’t know that this boy sitting in front of him also somehow related to CISCO.

Bilingual Finger: CISCO

And this post, I will fully talk about CISCO car park. Wah… This stupid cockroach what thing not happy? Even car park also wants to talk about it. But seriously I bet that everyone have not seen so many CISCO van in one car park right?

Bilingual Finger: CISCO van

Oh, by the way. CISCO is that group of people you always see outside the ATM machine where they help you put lots of money inside the machine. Without them, when ATM machine running out of money, you got no money to take from machine! So must give them a bow and said a big “Thank You”!

Bilingual Finger: CISCO
Thank You!

So yeah, in the CISCO car park, it is in basement 1. And when you enter the car park, you will say “Wah! So many CISCO and police vans…” (Seriously this is my first reaction when I first step into CISCO.)

Bilingual Fingers: CISCO van & Police Van

And you will also see them “know law still do unlawful thing”, anyhow park the van.

Bilingual Fingers: CISCO anyhow park.
CISCO anyhow park

But cannot really blame them on that, the car park is small yet some of them who working in CISCO park their cars that (and there is nothing wrong with that.)

Bilingual Finger: Non-CISCO car parked
See the bottom-left hand conner

What the most interesting I saw inside CISCO Cark Park is there is a sign located at the end of the cark park says: “Speeding No.1 killer”. I was thinking, why they put this sign inside CISCO car park? What happen if someone stole the money and the officer have to chase after right? What happen if the robber speeds? Does that means that the CISCO staff cannot speed and have to drive slowly and let the robber speed off???

Bilingual Fingers: Speeding NO.1 Killer
Speeding NO.1 Killer

I know this won’t happen, Singapore police network so wide. Some one stole money, press computer and all police will be all direction to catch the robber. But, but what happen if really in emergency? I think that sign of “Speeding No. 1 killer.” Doesn’t really need to be there, it is really useless. Ones more, they all are trained, why need to put a sign there??? I think it should be placed in all HDB car parks, not CISCO car park. Ha! Ha!

Ok, Ok. I got to stop writing and get back to my reading. Just to remind your that don’t ever think you can stole money from the CISCO car park. They had taken out all money boxes out before it got parked. So never ever think of going there and rob the van. Once more, there already got a lot of police. You do that, police arrive not in 5 minutes but in 1 minute, see how you run.

Hope CISCO doesn’t sue me because of this blog post…


A guy who lives in a small island call “Singapore” where through his everyday life, he found that life isn’t perfect.
