12 Days of Christmas

This Christmas I managed to take some decent photo of my Christmas tree. Decent as I finally got a tripod.

Since Christmas day was over, it is time to pack up the Christmas tree but I was told there was the 12 days of Christmas. Now that is something new to me although I heard of that popular Christmas song. I did a google search and I found the true meaning of the 12 things of Christmas represent.

1 True Love refers to God
2 Turtle Doves refers to the Old and New Testaments
3 French Hens refers to Faith, Hope and Charity, the Theological Virtues
4 Calling Birds refers to the Four Gospels and/or the Four Evangelists
5 Golden Rings refers to the first Five Books of the Old Testament, the "Pentateuch", which gives the history of man's fall from grace.
6 Geese A-laying refers to the six days of creation
7 Swans A-swimming refers to the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, the sacraments
8 Maids A-milking refers to the eight beatitudes
9 Ladies Dancing refers to the nine Fruits of the Holy Spirit
10 Lords A-leaping refers to the ten commandments
11 Pipers Piping refers to the eleven faithful apostles
12 Drummers Drumming refers to the points of doctrine in the Apostle's Creed


Now I know. Guess I will take down the Christmas till 5 January 2011 then. Actually is an excuse to delay to take the decoration and pack the tree. LOL

Facebook Phishing on email

Phishing is not something new but it is something quite worrying if one is not well equip with the knowledge to know how to prevent themselves for falling into one.

I just received a Phished email taking the identity of facebook friend notification. If it is found on my facebook email account then I would have fallen into it but this one happen to my none facebook email that got me on second look.

Just look at the screen capture below.

Everything look in order especially when the profile photo was an attractive woman with inviting messages. Luckily I had a habit to see the url before I click and the lower left hand corner of my browser. You can see it is not directed to facebook but some other url location. That is Phishing.

I am not adventurous to take the risk to click it but rather delete the email straight away and I think it is good to share with my readers such scam.

So friends and readers, please be alert.

What happen to Mcdonald Sundae?

McDonalds has been around for many years and beside their hamburgers, one of the favorite pick should be the Sundae. Can you recall how their Sundae especially Hot fridge Sundae look like? Good. It look something like following when I googled "mcdonald's Sundae"

Now hold that image in your mind. It was not the first time I ordered a Sundae that does not reflect the version on their poster. I am talking about the quantity. The tip of the cream barely reach over the cup.

I have personally sounded that out to the crew and he remake another for me. I should be satisfy as he is redoing my order but to my surprise, it turn out to be like the first one!

Here is the remake of my order...

This is not the first time I received this quality of Sundae. In fact a couple of time in different outlet when I have my Sundae craving. I am certain it is not foreign to you.

Tell me how would you feel with such quality? I felt short changed...

A Fly in Men's toilet cubicle?

Recently I visited Changi Airport and I encounter a interesting incident at the Men's room.

Yes it seems like a fly in a clean toilet cubicle. On the second look, I notice it was not the real fly but a design. Why on earth will there put a fly design there?

Well it's actually a ingenious way for men to "Stay on target" when they are "releasing" themselves (I know I did). As it's a common scenario that it was always wet at men cubicle due to poor aiming. Most of these cases could be intentionally anyway.

See how a simple design can reduce such incident? Yes it's so interesting that I took a picture of it. By the way, thumbs up for the clean standard of toilet by the staff of Changi Airport.
