Myanmar beauties

Last Saturday I was going to the Kreta Ayer Community Club to watch a Cantonese Songs Concert when I saw some pretty girls in costume outside the Kreta Ayer People's Theatre. Then I found out that there was a Myanmar Culutral show in the theatre. 

Unfortunately, I had no spare time. Otherwise I would go in to watch an item or two. Although a ticket was needed, I thought I could persuade the young man at the entrance to let me in.

Some people were taking photos outside the theatre. So I joined in. Here are some beauties .....

I believe all of us have prejudices of people and things. Once I bought a Panasonic camera. I found that it was not easy to use. After that, when I want to buy a camera, I will not consider any Panasonic brand.

I was trying to see if I could find my old classmates, old colleagues and old NS comrades on Facebook. I was disappointed. I found only three. A few have the same names but no photos, so I don't know if they were the ones I was looking for. Actually few of my friends have FB accounts. Even those who have accounts are dormant users, seldom posting and I guess only going online occasionally.

I bought a green papaya (as shown in the picture below) about three days ago. Now it is still green, but a lighter green. How to make a papaya ripe faster?

In recent weeks I met two old friends whom I have not seen for a few years. Both have put on considerable weight. I was not surprised. I myself have also put on some weight. I think this is a result of eating more but without an increase in physical activities.

Actually I have decided to do something about my overweight. But I have not started on my plan yet – delaying and delaying. It is like people making empty resolutions at the beginning of a new year.

This is procrastination, one of the human weaknesses. 

However, after seeing how fat one of the two old friends has become, I am confident that I will start on my plan soon, .

We still read about Singaporeans being cheated by scratch-and-win scams in Malaysia. I am certain these victims know about such scams. So how come they still fell for them? Is the chance of getting something free so irresistible? Or are the tricksters so good at it? 

I cannot say I will not be a victim myself because greed is another human failing.
