The Skaters and the Handicapped   Leave a comment

I would like to emphasis on the ability and freedom of movement here. We do not appreciate our good health and the ability to enjoy our movement with our able limbs like legs and hands. Recently. I suffered from joint pains from my pelvic bone and walking each step is a painful affair. Now, I know what is walking, running and jogging without effort and pain. We must enjoy our good health and take care of ourselves.

Classmates Get-together at OFA   Leave a comment

Having received a call from Hock Eng, we shall be getting together for a luncheon get-together today at Old Frees Association, Penang. It was indeed a small world as we entered the Tavern where members of OFA can dine in private and comfort with a discount to boot. Who did I see in the same dining room ? Firstly my 5th brother-in-law – Teng Chye, wife – Ai Gaik and the mother-in-law also having lunch there. In the next table, I saw our brother photographer David Wong having a meeting with his friends or business associates. We had a delicious nyonya-style lunch on Ban Bee. Thanks. Ban Bee and of course Hock Eng the organizer.

Working Day and Movies   Leave a comment

It has to happened on my working day to Bukit Mertajam on the Mainland. I have to travel by the 13.5 km Penang Bridge from Penang Island to my work place in the morning. Crossing the bridge and about 4 km from the Mainland end of the bridge a jam developed with the 3 lanes packed with vehicles. Another 20 minutes later we were at the “cause” of the traffic jam. A lorry had turned on its side spilling cylinders of gaseous products on to the road. One lane was closed as the police and other Bridge personnel were there to direct traffic and investigate the accident. Unluckily, I had not brought my camera to shoot the incident. After a delay of more than 45 minutes, we were soon headed along the highway to Bukit Mertajam.
After work, moving island-wards again another smaller jam developed. Oh my, another accident? Luckily one traffic lane was closed as bridge maintenance vehicle was parked on the outer lane so resulting in a traffic jam. Only 10 minutes of delay was recorded. Back home, it was catching up with my old movies.

1. ” Amen ” – A film by Costa-Gavras – France- 2002 – 130 minutes in Colour and in English. This watchable movie is centred on a story unwavering conscience and unspeakable horror of the Holocaust. It dramatizes the true history of how religious leaders in Germany and the Vatican ignored the plight of the Jews of Europe during the Second World War. Recommended.
2. ” Spartan ” – Franchise Pictures with the cast of Val Kilmer, Derek Luke, Kristen Bell. The daughter of a high-ranking Americal government officer was kidnapped but as the story unfolds, the simple search-and rescue operation becomes complicated by the political ambitions of those in high places. Interesting plot. Recommended.
