Small world

Doing my reservist now, and it sure is a small world out there.

#1 This morning my company went to the Singapore Discovery Center. Among the exhibits was a video segment about a music producer; none other than my ex-course mate Mr Clifton See.

#2 Eve's ex-classmate's cousin's husband is in the same cohort as I am.

#3 Same goes for my ex-colleague.

#4 This evening I was introduced to someone working in the automotive industry. Turns out we contracted his father's services just 2 days ago and he remembers me.

#5 My section mates were in the same batch as my cousin during active service.

#6 The perennial party-goer in my section also knows Eve and the extended Zouk fraternity.

Operative word: HOT!

Sam's car
Originally uploaded by crufty.
The A/C has been down for the last 2 days, and with just a fan for ventilation it gets unbearably hot to even think.

This week's mode of color: white! The shop has seen 3 white cars spending a lot of time in it. A few weeks ago it was red. Wonder what color would be next...

Speaking of colors, finally managed to capture Sam's car in its true hue. More pix here and here. Results best viewed on a properly color-calibrated Mac. Enjoy!
