A house with outdoor pool, latest gadgets for my Smart-Home (everything controlled electronically), bathroom the size of two rooms (with jacuzzi of course), a complete home studio, walk-in wardrobe (my clothes arranged according to colours, styles), entertainment room (cinema-style).. I can go on and on..
17. Tell me something about you that I don't know.
hmm.. I am a smurf fanatic. I have about 600 Smurf figurines! I put them in my room. I have 2 defunct fish tanks (2m long each, stacked on top of one another) which me and Idi converted into Smurf Villages. 1 3-tier display cabinets with smurf playset pop-ups and smurfs too.
18. If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?
The world? too ambitious.. let me start with just Singapore.. I would have a 4-Day compulsory work week for teachers instead of 5-day.
Reason being: Teachers need to get in touch with themselves. I see my fellow colleagues being all tired and stressed out ( me included.. but i love my students though
I miss my 2005 batch terribly) and they are counting the days to weekend. Work quality will definitely drop. With 4-day work week, we will teach of course. The fifth day, will be compulsory for us to pursue our own interest. Like mysef, Photography is my current second love
. So we will have to prove that we do pursue that interest and come up with a journal.. a portfolio.. and that portfolio will be included when we are to be graded on our work and performance at year-end.
19. Do you like to dance?
I dance only with my girlfriends.. the last time we performed "Hey Big Spender" for our Principal's farewell dinner. Recently, went to Franz Ferdinand's and Oasis' concerts.

Do what you like.. but what goes around comes around... good or bad will come back tri-fold.

Mira!! There was this Malaysian Movie, "Mira Edora", starring Julia Rais.. and she is PRETTY!! Besides, Mira means Miraculous in Latin.
22. Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him?
Eka!! Eka means The One in Sanskrit.. I am half Indian, half Javanese... marrying Javanese-Chinese.. what is to become of our kids!
23. Would you ever consider living abroad?
not permanently though.. maybe a holiday home.. my heart is with my country.
24. What do you want God to say to you when you reach the pearly gates?
25. 4 people who must also do this memo in THEIR journal:
anyone actually.. YOU!! if you are not too busy..
