Party Rockers in the House Tonight

It was a lazy Saturday afternoon, and with both parents in China and my brother at a scouts camp, I had the entire house to myself. Naturally I made a few calls to the Scam bros. "Hey bros, I have the whole house to myself for the next three days. No adults around... No one to supervise us... Are you dudes thinking what I'm thinking...?" "Hehehe..."   Five hours later:   Rather than the drug-fuelled, alcoholic rave party we were supposed to hold as respectable youths of our generation, we ended up belting out various Taylor Swift songs while dancing [...]

The Joys of Teaching

Most of the time, teaching classes is quite a pleasure. I get to share fun facts, interact with children and command the only people who will probably still listen to me around. The marking may be a chore, but I generally look forward to the classes themselves. This was not the case when I was asked to take a Pri 5 science class on Reproduction. You see, drawing on my knowledge of what 11 year old kids are like, this was what I imagined the class would be like: Me: "Good morning class, I'm Mr. Oh and today I will [...]

The Story of the Cake

Hi people. For those who don't know, I have recently started something I like to call Writing Sunday as part of my mission to get more writing (duh) done. This basically means that I shall take some time each Sunday to write a little piece and upload it here. Whether or not I can sustain this is highly suspect, but wish me luck anyway. This isn't one of my Writing Sunday posts, but someone requested for me to post this so here it is, uploaded as requested. Till next week, tata! The Story of the Cake Prologue: “Let them eat [...]

Scramble Cram Ramble Amble Am

For the past few days I have been playing Scramble CE on my phone so much, that when I tried to call my mum on the phone last night, I physically couldn't for a moment because the digits weren't connected on the number grid. When I close my eyes now I see not darkness but D-E-A-R, E-A-R, R-A-D, D-A-R-E, A-R-E, R-E-A-D morphing into and out of each other. I can no longer look at a game of tic tac toe without muttering to myself that XXX and OOO are not words and therefore should not be linked. Someone save me. [...]

Adventures in Taiwan – Day 1

Hello friends. Or rather hello to the three or so obsessive stalkers still left checking this space after a 6 month long posting vacation, congratulations! You are the ultimate survivor. I’m currently typing this post a gazillion miles or so above the ground in an SIA plane. Yes, you saw that correctly, an SIA plane. A plane where dreams come true and rays of hope beam around so much you expect to look left and see a bloody care bear in the next seat. A plane where the in-flight shows don’t consist of just old hong kong serial reruns and [...]
