Marina Barrage

Last Sunday, I went to Marina Barrage with a few friends. The view there is pretty nice, especially from the green grass roof. The Marina Bay Sands construction looks pretty fast, without about 3/4 of the hotel towers completed. I guess it would be nicer when the building is completed. There were also a lot of trees and plants around the Gardens By The Bay construction area. Actually, there isn’t much things to see at the barrage, except for the Sustainable Singapore exhibition gallery, in which they show you how Singapore manages its water supply and how the barrage works etc. You can walk on the bridge across the river and see how the dams work. My friend joked that the black pistons that push the dams look like those Fort Canning kind of cannons. haha. Can shoot enemies at the sea. lol.

After that we went eat some Hokkaido sandwiches at The Sail. The signature King Crab one is a bit overpriced ($8) and little serving, but the beef and prawn fritters one were pretty good. Good thing that there was free coffee with any sandwich purchase of $5 and above. They mainly cater to the weekday working crowd. Not too bad.

We also went to watch The Shinjuku Incident. As the reviews say, it is quite a violent (and scary) movie, showing a dark side of Jackie Chan, in such that he is not always the hero. After all, he’s the main person involved in the mafia wars portrayed in the movie.


Last week my CS1102 Practical Exam sucked. I could not do the second question and the first question output was wrong. Feel so dumb and stupid now. Especially when my friend finished 45 minutes earlier. This Saturday got another test for CS2100! No more long weekend to enjoy.


There’s a theory that it rains every Good Friday. Well it’s raining now.

From noon to three, the whole earth was dark. Around mid-afternoon Jesus groaned out of the depths, crying loudly, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?” …But Jesus, again crying out loudly, breathed his last.

– Matthew 27:45-50

April Fool’s Day

Today my lecturer Mr Tan gave us a surprise pop quiz in the middle of lecture. There were 3 questions and he said it is 10% of the final grade. And we only had five minutes to do it. Halfway through we were discussing and some quipped that today is 1st April. After that he said he will reveal the answers now. He scrolled down the word document and it said Happy April Fools Day. Haha.

There are also other April Fool’s jokes around the web.
