The Passing Of A Legend - Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew

Tribute site beside Jurong Regional Library

Grave news shook the world in the wee hours of March 23rd 2015. 

Lee Kuan Yew, the former Prime Minister of Singapore has passed away peacefully at 3.18am. He has been warded at the Singapore General Hospital since February 05 for severe pneumonia where he remained critically ill. He was 91.

For the days leading up to his demise, the PMO (Prime Minister's Office) has been updating Mr Lee's health status daily. His deteriorating  health is worrying and I knew what is to come but still, I was shaken when the inevitable happened. 

I thought I would remain indifferent to his death but I was dead wrong. I may not see eye to eye with all his decisions or agree with the policies he make but I have to give him credit for the contributions and sacrifices he has put into our nation building.

Nobody is perfect but he did what he thought he had to do in the way he thought best. And for that, I am grateful.

Several community tribute sites has been set up all over Singapore for Singaporeans to pay their tributes to the great leader. I visited two of the community tribute sites to pay my respects.

A Day With The Singapore Zoo, River Safari And Night Safari!

Last Sunday, I spend my birthday at the Singapore Zoo and River Safari for the second consecutive year ever since I found out that Singaporeans enter WRS (Wildlife Reserves Singapore) parks for free on their birthdays.

I arrived at the Zoo bright and early that morning to collect my complimentary tickets from the ticketing booth.

After getting my tickets, I head straight for the River Safari because I wanted to see the Manatees and Araipaima first.

While most people visiting the River Safari naturally turn left towards Rivers Of The World, I head for the opposite direction towards the Amazon Flooded Forest where the Manatees and Araipaima are.

The River Safari is designed in a loop so visitors can just go clockwise (or anti-clockwise like I did) around the park. The Rivers Of The World is at the beginning of the loop while the Amazon Flooded Forest is at the end of it. Since the majority of the crowd are at the other side, I have the Amazon Flooded Forest all to myself!

DIY: Biological/Chemical Filter For Aquarium

I have been toying with the idea of making my own biological cum chemical filter for a long time. I am using a overhead filter but it is kind of small to add in any other media after putting in the filtration wool.

Since my overhead filter is only fulfilling the mechanical aspect of the filtration system, this project will enhance the biological and chemical step.

There are three components to the filtration system:

- Mechanical
- Biological
- Chemical

Our Army Exhibition - A Soldier In Every Family

Our Army Exhibition - A Soldier In Every Family came to the open space beside Westgate, Jurong East two weekends ago. 

I took the opportunity to visit the exhibition to learn more about the technology and weaponry used in our defenses. It was an eye-opener to learn about the latest technology and also seeing some familiar equipments which accompanied my days with the armed forces.
