STRONG WINDS IN SINGAPORE
The National Environment Agency (NEA) says a tropical storm is the reason for the strong winds which blew into Singapore Wednesday night. A wind speed of up to 83 kilometres per hour was recorded -- the strongest in nearly nine years. Among the damage caused - fallen trees and a broken construction crane.
Residents of private condominium Abelia woke up to find their Ardmore Park neighbourhood, near Shangri La Hotel, behind police lines. A construction crane at a neighbouring building had snapped into two, with most of it dangling precariously from the 30th floor. Police say a lifting kit connected to the crane was found along the road. No one was injured. But the Manpower Ministry has stopped work at the site while it figures out how to safely recover the crane. It is investigating the incident, which has also attracted the attention of other builders nearby. Tan Heok Ngee Benjamin, Project Manager, C@nspecs Pte Ltd, said: "This crane is commonly used in a lot of construction sites. So if some problem happens here, we want to see if there is anything we can do to prevent this from happening." Officials from the building company involved, Poh Lian Construction, were tight-lipped about the incident. Like many others across the island, residents in the neighbourhood say they experienced unusually strong winds last night. The winds also wreaked havoc elsewhere across Singapore last night.
The NEA says the strong winds were caused by a Sumatra squall, named as such because the storm usually develops overnight in Sumatra and the Strait of Malacca, before sweeping into Singapore between midnight and daybreak. NEA says such storms usually occur between April and September. For the rest of the month, we can expect another one or two Sumatra squalls, but they are unlikely to be as severe as the one on Wednesday night.
it is definitely uncommon to experience such strong winds in singapore:D and the feeling is really 爽!! after suffering from days of killer heat, finally a windy one:D
and this blog is dead.

Isn't it amazing that George Carlin - comedian of the 70's and 80's - could write something so very eloquent...and so very appropriate.
A Message by George Carlin:
The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers,
wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints.
We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less.
We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time.
We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.
We've learned how to make a living, but not a life.
We've added years to life not life to years.
We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor.
We conquered outer space but not inner space.
We've done larger things, but not better things.
We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul.
We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice.
We write more, but learn less.
We plan more, but accomplish less.
We've learned to rush, but not to wait.
We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships..
These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes.
These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill.
It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom.
A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete...
Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.
Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.
Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.
Remember, to say, 'I love you' to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.
Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.
Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Reshaping Teaching and Learning at Hwa Chong. We are the future.
Being the ultra-conservative one, I am entire resistant to changes; in fact i despise changing for the sake of changing. I prefer the status quo, especially when the current situation is good enough to produce so many A's for A-levels examinations.
Hence, I suggest the tried and tested method of using the whiteboard to teach, instead of spending vast amount of money on smartboard (those digital ones with digital pens and digital touchscreen), touchscreen notbook, when lecturers barely scratch the surface of the potential of these teaching tools. I see no effectiveness in using the new media, such as videos and animations to teach concepts, when students tend to find such sessions most suitable for sleeping, coupled with the ambient lighting and the monotonous/melodious voices from the speakers attempting to lull us all into deep slumber.
If we are the future, do not destroy it for us! Stay to the status quo where everything is working well, and keep taxpayers' money for better use.
The Jalan Besar GRC Youth Executive Committees
warmly invite you to the
PAYM Policy Forum @ Jalan Besar GRC
Participants get to interact with Dr Lee Boon Yang on their views on new media. There will be a group discussion and panelist session before the dialogue to get a grip of the issue. It will be a lively session,where people get to sit around in comfy and start talking, instead of a formal one like the assembly we have in school.
It is also a chance to get to know our politicians as well. :D

Reshaping Teaching and Learning at Hwa Chong. We are the future.
(pardon my horrible incoherent language. )
While the rest of wonderful you(s) are phooling around, having semi CT dinners with crashers coming too, to replace the rest of us, i'm here to blog about our future. nope. wait read the question again. it says we ARE the future. alright. i shall blog about us as the future.
Reshaping teaching. at hc. Teaching at hwachong is something really hard to define. Sometimes, we get really coherent ones. Just like some lectures where it's fun and yet we learn many things out of them; in some tutorials, our doubts are cleared each time. However, we also do have instances where information were shot to the wall at lightning speed and unfortunately reflect at an angle so accurate that it went in from one of our ears and went out from the another, almost instantaneously. So how can we improve this so that learning in Hwachong will be more effective? Seriously, after much thoughts, I still do not have an answer.
Personally, excluding the subject math, I think that peer tutoring works better for me. I think i work better when i'm allowed to think in my own pace. Having made myself to think as fast as how others can is a pretty demanding task for me. However, for me to sit down to think and process requires an environment with least amount of destruction. Although moving to different classrooms are meant for the teachers to stay in a particular classrooms each, but I do not think that it has been effectively implemented. This has caused the noticeboards in the classrooms to be unused and, at the same time, students to not have a proper classroom. ( i want a classroom! although there's a csc room. but huangcheng is always using it. >< ).
if a teacher were to stay in the classroom, the noticeboard can be fully utilised to post summaries of topics and important learning points so that we can learn, or revise, in a more effective way. if each class has a classroom, students get to have a more condusive environment instead of one where we get easily distracted by people around us playing frisbee, playing guitars, screamming and shouting and random crashers occuping our already extremely limited studying area. (and on a side note: how are we expected to study with tables that have spaces in between each horrizontal planks. ) we as the future, can try to earn money/ raise funds to build more classrooms or replace the benches. Or you can raise the quality of teaching by studying hard now and teach in hwachong in the future. Haha! What a horrible ending. What say you then?
this blog competition ends tomorrow, so voice your opinions today!
somebody saved this as draft. so i shall just post it.
for man u fans. i guess.

OBVIOUSLY I'M THE ONE IN YELLOW LA!!! THE WHITE AND BLUE ONE SO NOOB :p HAHAHA BUT THATS NOT THE POINT. HAHA. THE POINT IS HCJC FLAG HAS YELLOW BUT NO BLUE!!! HAHAHA
saw ryn's post below, so i decided to post the match report here. (save ur time going to hcunite website to find it:D) the words in red are the main points:D
The squash season kicked off today as the guys team faced their first opponents from TPJC.
Although TPJC was not one of the stronger competitors in the competition, the guys were not complacent and did their best to secure a resounding 5 - 0 victory over their opponents. The first game was played by captain Chan Zhi Jie, who whitewashed his opponent 9-0, 9-0, 9-0 in straight sets. This raised the team's morale as they fought to secure the following games.
Next up, I crushed a snail on wednesday bassist, superband finalist and talentime band winner Jonathan Soh showcased his versatility and all-roundedness as he took an easy win over his opponent in similar fashion, with individual set scores of 9-0, 9-0, 9-0. The third game saw Ryn Aldridge Wu face off against the captain of TPJC. However, he remained unfazed and kept his composure as he clinched the victory in 3 straight sets of 9-0, 9-1, 9-0.
Following that, Darren Toh overpowered his opponent with a series of hard drives and amazing agility as he too obtained victory in straight sets of 9-1, 9-0, 9-0. The last game saw Tan Yi Wen playing against his former senior. However, this did not upset his concentration as he wrapped up the game neatly with straight set victories of 9-0, 9-1, 9-0.
This was a good start to the season as the boys hope to continue with their excellent form in their upcoming matches.
