I must be ignorant, was just chatting with my Australian colleague and I learned that in Australia, every kid IS A MUST to attend school, a law passed by the govt, regardless poor or parents disallowed because school was compulsory for all kids, and best of all, its free till College.
Well , something for me.
I probably have heard about the Spanish flu that was prophesized in the Bible revelation between 1918-1919. What I didn’t see was the number of people it the virus killed in that one year!
20 million to 40 million people world wide MORE than the Great WORLD war 1!
People were struck with illness on the street and died.
And I read the Spanish Flu was thought to have originated from CHINA!
What was surprisingly was, the Spanish Flu only Attacked those HEALTHY FIT & STRONG BODIES and not weak low immune bodies!
Well more versions of it, still the fact is, we can’t fight virus with our bare hands!
We were given a table (something like the 7th month) in Yishun from the 156 people and last night was the dinner.
It was grand large and most of the neighbourhood attended with lots from afar as far for the God’s birthday.
There were in about 70 tables in the tentage and our seating arrangement was all messed up, not as planned, and with the parents together.
It was alright, the bidding was horrendously high for the start with thousand over for the first bid for a Corden Bleu. They had almost 20 over bottles of Corden Bleu and failing to bid those in our hands, we finally obtained a XO Hennessy.
I guess more for supporting the 156 people especially on the first year of celebration!
Louis 13, one man had bid it for $22,000!
Wow, to me drink down is still alcohol. How good the drink is? I doubt I ever drink this alcohol LOUIS 13 before man.
I don’t think it would taste any different to a layman like me!
Anyhow, dinner ended almost 11pm and we walked back to the empty 156 coffeeshop for further chats and drinks.
Then, you realized neighbourhood closeness is quite comfy afterall!
