Thought I might want to borrow some books from the library since I’m not in a good mood today. Happily searched for books and got myself 3!
The borrowing station indicated that I have unpaid fines and doesn’t allow me to borrow any books.
(then I remembered that NLB had recently – few months back – implemented this rule that you can only borrow books if you are fines-free)
So I headed to the payment machine. Remembering that the new ez-link card is not accepted for payment yet, I whipped out the old card. Feeling glad that I’ve yet exchanged it for the new one, was stunned when the machine rejected it.
Tried at the e-kiosk. Same error.
Unfortunately, I have no cashcard. Didn’t bring my NETS card. Proceeded to the service counter to enquire if I can pay by cash instead.
THEY DON’T ACCEPT CASH PAYMENT!!!
Best is, the system says I’m of DELIQUENT status! Simply because I have an outstanding fine of THIRTY CENTS! *facepalm*
Haiyo! I’m already feeling moody from the morning’s incident liao, NLB must treat me like that! 🙁
So I had to leave the library empty handed. 🙁
NLB, you are so friendly.
Had not been getting quality sleep for the past few days. Dreams and nightmares.
Woke up as usual this morning, feeling a little bit grouchy when I saw my bus leave the bus stop just as I was reaching =
Thankfully the next bus came within 5mins! With many vacant seats somemore! 😀
Traffic jam along PIE till BKE. Not a good way to start the day, but I’m used to jams along BKE/PIE. It’s a norm.
Managed to catch the bus (that I had to change to) that was in front. As it was packed, I was standing at the entrance.
And I got a scare/fright at the next bus stop. Almost jumped when I heard a pretty loud “HOI!” over the shoulder. Turned back and saw an old uncle wanting to alight. Thought to myself, I didn’t hear him saying he wants to alight, nor did he do any indication leh.. I was facing the front, he was behind.
For an instant, I was shocked. You want to alight, cannot tell me is it? I’m not a tiny animal that can be scared away to make way for you! Bloody hell.. scare me you very happy is it?
I gave him the same respect I have for the elderly, gave way to him without complains. But I sensed a black face when I had to move elsewhere to make way for him. Uncle.. the bus very packed leh.. Not a lot of free space to move around, what do you want from me?
If he hadn’t had his walking stick with him (met this uncle a few times on the bus, he had to walk with the walking stick), I might have turned nasty.
Felt disrespected as a human. Is there a need to do a loud “HOI!”? I have ears if you make a request. I have sense organs if you tap me. There’s no need to scare me away to make way for you.
Was being asked via facebook chat, if I have any blogger friends interested in attending the Changi Airport Race event.
Of course I’d say I want to go right? 😀
Who knows.. at the next instant..
So.. I’m not as famous as Pat Law.
So my blog stats isn’t high up on the chart..
Even if you were asking as a friend, you’re still talking to a (not so famous) blogger. To think that I was so supportive of your projects over the past 2 yrs..
So if any one of you’s interested in attending the event, I can help pass to him. But I need details like “Your blog, Stats, hits, genre. and include 5 friends”.
Remember, they “have to screen” and you have to be “as famous as Pat”.
First time at a pub with the dept. Known to be the boring aka no life dept for some, I think it’s a great achievement for us to get out of our standard routine for a simple dinner and drinks at Wala Wala. Feels good for such a bonding session. Pity the boss’s down with MC. Candid photos might be up soon, but probably no tagging on facebook. Hahha..
K off to “enjoy” the band’s performance! Such an irony when I seldom listen to English songs. It’s like they know me but I dunno them =)
