Go Fly Kite!

Back in Singapore again...for the Chinese New Year ! Really hate the freaky weather back home! Give me the cold in Dubai any time! Anyway, managed to catch a sneak preview of "The Kite Runner"movie with some friends...highly anticipated all over the world. Based on the book with the same title by Khaled Hosseini. A great read....a page turner...finished it in 2 nights. Absolutely heart wrenching storyline.
It was a good adaptation...love the musical score!

Nowadays, you need a special event to fly a kite...throw in some big sponsors....etc In those days, you can fly one as and when you like. As for me, Im doing my best to keep the tradition alive. At least when some idiots get into my nerves, I can simply tell them in the face " Go Fly Kite!"

On that day...I almost have the entire dam to myself . What a bliss...I thought. While i was enjoying the view...a cruiser pulled over...and a loud blast came out from the vehicle's audio. I recognised the bollywood beats. Suddenly, two guys jumped out from the car...started dancing...and gyrating to one another...oblivious to my presence. It was comical to say the least. Im sorry to say...the horrible dancing was further compounded by two ugly looking creatures. Before I could picked up my dropped jaw...they jumped into the car and drove off! About 30 metres away...the car stopped and the two idiots jumped out and repeated the same routine all over again! I told myself if they repeat the stupid act one more time..im going to pick one of the big stones around and.................

P.S: My dear Peter...that gadget is for massaging. What it actually does is to vibrate the hand which in turns vibrate the head, shoulder when in contact...:)
