The Law of Gravity Define

Galileo in 15th century, discovered that any object falling to earth, fall at the same rate of time . He mentioned that a cannon ball and a feather, if dropped from the same height will touch the ground at the same time provided there is no air resistance. He had difficulty explaining it for quite a long time and also unable to prove it visually.

4 centuries later with the current technology it has been experimentally demonstrated. 

Its a super visual treat to watch the video 👌
Please show it to your children .👇

North East Line Down 8 July 17

The North East Line went down in the wee hours of Saturday.


Information is up but with a small mistake which I think you can spot easy.
(Picture credit of my FB friends)

The delay travel spell into a full break down of services.

It is a common since to see passengers battling to get up the buses due to the large human traffic. The train will also be pack like sardines when it started to resume operations.

It looks like the signal fault is creating an uphill task for the operator. There may be other issues which is not visible to us and unspoken by the staffs who are aware of it. We just have to live with it as LTA try its best to resolve the issue.

Train breakdown 28 June 17

This is the first major breakdown that affect both directions on the North South Line. Free bus boarding services were available for those buses that ply past the MRT Stations.


It start with the notification and LTA also got the time wrong. 

Notice the timing difference with the posting and the actual content. The notification always are later than the actual event. Twitter is the best place to get the latest news than the incumbent news agency. There is a lot of procrastination on the ground level to prevent the out flow of information.


The massive crowd overflowing the Jurong East Station platforms. Everyone is eager to get home after work.


Everyone queuing to get heir chance to enter the station to proceed to the next destination.


The incumbent news agency had inform the communters to endure for a few more months. Singapore residents are gullible and had to listen. There are limited venues for you to get your message across in Singapore.

We have to endure as they fine tune the system at the expense of our time. Bosses, I am late as the public transport need times to adjust accordingly.

SGH Clinic A Payment

It is Friday and the SGH ENT Clinic is packed with patients. The current bottleneck process is the payment and appointment counter. You will have to patiently wait for your turn. This may take 30 minutes to one hour.

Everyone is trying to pay attention to the staffs calling the patient to make payment and fix the next appointment. I am wondering when this process can be change or there is limitation in their work flow. My advice is to apply for the service express and skip the payment and appointment counter.

Apply for Service Express>>>
