STGCC 2010

Ol'Dan is back at STGCC this year with the Singapore Garrison of the 501st Legion and trooping as an AT-AT Driver as usual (below right):

and as seen at AsiaOne:

I not only had a good time posing at our photo booth to raise funds for the Singapore Children's Society, I also got to meet StickGirl (at last):

Pardon my 'janitor' outfit, StickGirl. AT-AT Driver also need to take five. XD

To top it off, I bumped into an ex-JC classmate of mine whom I only knew for three months before I transferred out. After 20 years, he still recognises me and called out to me. Great to see him getting his son acquainted with Vader's finest troopers.

This will be a day long remembered.

p.s. Drop by the Legion photobooth to support our fund raising for the Singapore Children's Society.

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's...

For non-Chinese readers:
The second and third chinese characters, 鸡 and 机 (ji) have the same pronunciation.
飞机 (fei ji) literally means 'flying (fei) machine (ji)', i.e. aeroplane.
飞鸡 (fei ji) literally means 'flying (fei) chicken (ji)'.

The Comic With Hainanese Dialogue 4

Happy New Year! Ol' Dan has been busy (and still is) with a long-term project which has been leeching his life-force. Glad I could squeeze time to do a new comic.

女: 这个屁股是谁的呢?
Woman: Whose backside is this?

女: 你是谁啊?
Woman: Who're you?

猫: 我是小小.
Cat: I'm the Little One.

女: Orh...原来是小小.
Woman: Oh, the 'Little One' I see.

Editor: The Hainanese word 'Boh' is somewhat a variant of the Chinese word '阿'. Just can't pinpoint an exact word for it. Also ' 阿小' doesn't seem right. Having the cat introducing itself as '小小' seems to convey 'the Little One' better.

女: 你要喝咖啡吗?
Woman: Would you like some coffee?

猫: 要!

Cat: Yes!

猫: Mmm....咖啡味真香!
Cat: Mmm...The coffee smells great!

女: 来, 请你吃蛋塔.
Woman: Here, let me treat you to an egg tart.

女: 你吃东西前没有洗手的啊?
Woman: Don't you wash your hands before eating?

猫: 不要浪费水.
Cat: Mustn't waste water.

女: 唉... 没话讲.

Woman: Haiz, I'm speechless.
