Driver's Licence

A mother is driving her little girl to her friend's house for a play date.

'Mommy ,' the little girl asks, 'how old are you?'

'Honey, you are not supposed to ask a lady her age,' the mother replied. 'It's not polite.'

'OK', the little girl says,'How much do you weigh?'

'Now really,' the mother says,'those are personal questions and are really none of your business.'

Undaunted, the little girl asks, 'Why did you and Daddy get a divorce?'

'That's enough questions, young lady! Honestly!'

The exasperated mother walks away as the two friends begin to play.

'My Mom won't tell me anything about her,' the little girl says to her friend.

'Well,' says the friend,'all you need to do is look at her driver's license. It's like a report card, it has everything on it.'

Later that night the little girl says to her mother, 'I know how old you are. You are 32.'

The mother is surprised and asks, 'How did you find that out?

'I also know that you weigh 130 pounds.'

The mother is past surprised and shocked now.
'How in Heaven's name did you find that out?'

'And,' the little girl says triumphantly,

'I know why you and daddy got a divorce.'

'Oh really?' the mother asks. 'Why?'

'Because you got an F in sex.'

If you see someone without a smile today

Give them one of yours! 

Thanks! Joo Hock

Fire Drill at Menara Affin

There's always the probability of a fire occurring anywhere.  It is a risk that needs to be taken into consideration when we consider the safety of persons or property.  It is one of the reasons that fire evacuation and rescue drills are required of all high-rise buildings.  These drills are to be carried out at least once a year.

Recently the bank organized a fire evacuation drill at Menara Affin where I work.  It was held with the collaboration of the Fire and Rescue Department and other relevant authorities.  

I have volunteered as an assistant floor marshal and had to attend a briefing of my roles and responsibilities by a representative of the Fire and Rescue Department.

These are some of the photos I managed to take of the occasion.

The last 4 photos are courtesy of my friends Haniff and Agip.

Photographers on the loose......

Last weekend (3-4 October 2009), I attended a photography seminar organized by the NIE section of the NST. The seminar was facilitated by Mr. Adam Tan and held at the NST premises in Jalan Riong, Bangsar. A field trip to the Lake Gardens was part of the program.
