Welcoming the Year of Cow.

If you notice around you (in Singapore I meant :P) you will see on some open area where there grass patches, there are colorful cows "grazing".

I vaguely remember last year this media company Moove Media who are a subsidiary of Comfort Delgro did similar advertisement. Since their mascot is a cow so & ushering the year of the cow, they pull out the same trick again.

I am so fascinated with these cute cows, can't help stopping my car in a car park, walk near to them & snap these pics. Trust me, all the other drivers driving past that corner heading towards the expressway was really wondering what am I doing...

But I think the effort of taking these pics were worth it. They are really so cool & cute.

What a way to start the 牛 Year

Last week, my status at Facebook was - Joanne broke her wrought iron gate!! Oh no!!

Isn't that great! I can have such great strength to break my own gate. Frankly I really don't know what happen. I just as usual put the keys in & open it.

It started to have some cracking sound but I ignore it. Later when I attempted to close, it can't be closed. After trying a few times (end of the day - rather slow in mind), then I saw the hinge of the gate was sheer off at the joint!

Seriously I have no idea how can this can be happening as wrought iron gates are meant to very tough & hard! Tried calling people to come & fix it but to no avail. Its either they charges me exuberant prices or no workers around...

I have no choice but live with a broken gate throughout the Chinese New Year...

See below. This is the broken hinge.

And this is what it should be.
