It's amazing what a wikipedia entry on a heartland estate in this country can turn up.

Regarding the contest over Cheng San GRC in the 1997 GE:
The vote was deemed too close to call such that the PAP thought it necessary for ministers to visit the polling stations on voting day. The opposition later charged that the PAP had violated the law which prohibits politicians from being in the vicinity of a polling station but the Attorney-General found no impropriety on the part of the ministers as the law only prohibits politicians from the vicinity of the polling station but not in the polling station itself.

ただいま (revised)

お久しぶり。Long time no blog.

Japan. Finally got a chance to visit. And whet my appetite for more.

First impressions.. Japanese seem humble yet proud. Proud of their language, country, culture. Even using their own year numbering system (based on the reign of emperors) for a notice at the airport. Yet humble to one another, even to stranger gaijins. Parts of it were as neat and tidy as their disneyland, not a single leaf out of place, even more extreme than Singapore.

Attack of the kawaiis. Somehow all products have cute line-drawn mascots. Even the inflight video (which very gently informed passengers of dos and don'ts) was an animated comic drawn on lined paper. Akihabara (秋葉原) was full of girls in maid costumes.

Mount Fuji. TV or poetic descriptions pale in comparison to the real thing. But we were freezing inside the bus as we rode up to the 5th station (9 stations in all, only lower 5 accessible by car).

Sakura. A little disappointed? Somehow the colour is not as brightly pink as it appears in photos, but a more subtle shade of pink.

Crazy transport costs. At every highway toll station or carpark, the bus had to pay like $30-50 worth of fees. It cost SGD 2000+ in toll charges to drive from Osaka to Tokyo. A 1-hour taxi ride will set you back about $500, and I don't mean yen. Shinkansen costs $25 for 1 short stop.

Shinkansen. AWESOME! Tried to take a photograph of a passing train but was blown away. When I recovered from shock, the train was gone. There was a smart girl who took a video of it though. Top speed: 300 km/h

Flight there was very eventful. Someone fainted on board, but apparently there wasn't a single doctor on board, in spite of the stewardesses' pleas for help. And still a couple of hours before touchdown. Hope that guy was ok.

Ramen. Only had a chance to try out a couple of shops. The one near my hotel was pretty decent, but the one at the airport wasn't too great. Abit disappointing, I think even Ichibantei in Singapore can easily beat those 2. Oh well, better luck next time.

Haruki Murakami (村上春樹). Picked up Kafka on the Shore at Narita. Am currently hooked on it. At this rate when I finish it I think I'll pick up the original Japanese edition as well. Or maybe the untranslated edition of his new novel, After Dark.

Regrets.. no time to visit Shibuya, Shinjuku, Harajuku, back alleys of Akihabara (where bleeding-edge stuff like invisible cameras and other prototypical tech resides), Ginza, Sony tower. But perhaps graduate studies there will fix that.

And wow so many things I missed this last week.. Apple allowing users to dualboot windoze, Anthony Leggett visiting NUS, and OMG the Big Red cannon sitting in front Fleming House (the house I was in) at Caltech was swiped by some MIT kids pretending to be "Howe & Ser Moving Company" and transported all the way to the East Coast?! "Howe & Ser Moving Co. is an accomplished national moving firm known for its excellent customer service. It has been described as, "assertive, low-key, and really willing to go the extra 3,000 miles to ensure a bang-up job." I guess they finally started to get a little upset about the "MIT" T-shirts that Caltech people were distributing at MIT's Campus Preview last year.

What is the meaning of life?

Not feeling suicidal or anything, but recent events have set me thinking about what it's all about. Is it about learning physics? Or aiming to become a 20 kilobucks/month tenured full professor (ie. my boss)? Is it becoming another cog in the wheel? In particular, a cog in the homo economical system of singapore? Or perhaps getting married and give unborn kids the gift of life so that they too can ponder this point? Or end up as cogs as well? Or what?

Please, feel free to leave your take on this.
