When everyone is talking about Green for the Earth and Energy saving, it is really shocking that a government will go against the trend.
Palazzo Versace hotel (UEA), when completed in 2010, will have a refrigerated 820 sqm swimming pool.
It will also has a beach with (read this! ) artificially cooled sand.
(A giant windmill machine will be used all day long to cool the sand, while coolant will be pump to the tubes laid under the sand)
Can you imagine the energy needed?
To refrigerate a swimming pool in such a hot place?
I know they are rich.
They have all the right to spend all their money, in anyway they see fit.
Please don’t forget, the resource of this Mother Earth belong to all of us, too.
A couple of nights ago, I was awakened by some strange noise.
Lying in bed, I tried to discern the source of the sound. Only then I realised that it sounded like someone was using some machines to inflate balloon, one after another.
What? Inflating balloon at 1am in the morning? Were they out of their mind?!
The next morning, I found this balloon at my doorstep..
with this piece of paper tied to its string.
Duh. Could they not do it in the morning?
For those of you who were playing computer games ten years ago, you would most likely had cross path with Command & Conquer / Red Alert by Westwood Studio.
Who could forget the husky laughter of Tanya? Or her (in)famous ‘Cha-Ching’ whenever she strike?
After years of lapse, Electronic Art finally released Red Alert 3.
It is like a walk down memory lane. Everything felt right at home ^-^
The graphic looks good, even at lowest setting. Of course, if you own a blazing fast machine, you would be able to visualize in game graphic like those in the photos.
The video … de javu? Haha
The gameplay, as usual, is good. It provides hours and hours of fun.
It is good to ‘visit’ an old game once in a while.
First, the EPF department passed more work to us.
I guess we just did not protest loud enough.
Now IRB is following their footsteps, by giving us more work.
A new schedular tax deduction (STD) system will take effect from Jan 1 to overcome the problem of over-deduction.
The new STD system will require employees to provide to their employers the monthly exemptions, personal relief and rebates they wish to claim as a taxpayer.
Oh, so we all have nothing better to do? Only the IRB department staff is overworked? We have to do their paperwork every month now?
