We have a newly certified driver in the house! Tien Yew just passed his driving test last Fri and he’s been happily driving me around in his dad’s car….with his dad in tow. So I’m sitting in the back seat with his mum and his dad is at the front giving him directions. Haha and [...]

Pulling out of the Performance

Published on May 24, 2006

Its wed today, the day of the first performance. I should be excited but I’m not, cos we’re not going to be in it. Our decision to pull out of the performance was not easy and it was painful. But we were in such bad shape I didn’t think we would survive the intensive training. [...]

Birthday Reprise

Beta Testing

Published on

Well, I’ve essentially become quite a beta tester for Microsoft.? I’ve downloaded the betas of both Internet Explorer 7 and Windows Media Player 11.? Other than their version numbers being prime numbers, I thought they looked classy and that maybe I’d give them a try.? I’ll probably be posting about my experiences with these useful [...]
