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>>>

SGH ENT Clinic Patient Experience

Registration using the automated registration machine is fast and convenient. You can scan your IC/ID card and it will generated the slip if you have a schedule appointment. The slip will show you the clinic and room to proceed for your consultant review.

Of course, seeing the consultant still take some ample waiting time. I see this is a major improvement as you can skip the registration counter.

But now the lag is at the payment and appointment counter. Just imagine, there are at least 20 consultant rooms but only 2 staffs to serve your payment and appointment needs. You need to wait at least 30 minutes on a normal day for them to serve you. It can be quite frustrating as they use a very manual method and that is by calling name instead of utilizing the queue number.

It is time SGH looks at how NHG Polyclinic is resolving this issue. At the poly clinic, you can proceed to made payment using the automated counter or back at home using AXS or internet banking. You can then queue at the appointment counter to book your appointment.

We should learn and adopt best practices in the healthcare sector for the benefits of the patients. There is no need to re-invent the wheel but sharing among each other to improve the services together.

I will email SGH and let’s see what is their comment on the payment and appointment counter issue.

Mum at SGH Day 1

We arrive at the Same Day Admission Centre located at Block 5, Level 1. 


My mum need to goes through the usual checkup such as temperature check and pressure measurement. As usual, you will be seen by a small doctor (小医生)who will take down his observations and update the case note. The doctor then ask us to wait for the ENT doctor(大医生), who will provide us more info on the operations. The ENT doctor updated us on the operation and the risks involve although it is very minimum.

You can wait at the Same Day Admission Centre but you will be chase out after 530pm which is their closing times.

I have opted for a B2 ward ( 6 beds) but she was send to Ward 55A which is a B1 ward (4 bed aircon area). Tomorrow, I will need to check with the admission office that she got the free upgrade due to no B2 beds available.

The operation went on smoothly and was sent to the ward at around 630pm. Her throat was slice and the thyroid remove. A tube was left at the throat side to collect any excess blood from the operated area.

She feel hungry as have not taken any food since 12am. She vomited a bit as she has a empty stomach. I tried to get some food for her to filled the stomach. But the nurse said she cannot have any solid food and gave her warm Milo only. She drink the warm Milo and went to sleep. I left the place after spending 10 hours at SGH.
