Happy Holidays

Time flies and May is already here. May is gonna be an awesome month.  It is fashionably yours birthday month.  There are 3 Public Holidays in May - Labour Day, Polling Day and Vesak Day.  

Fashionably yours has been working like mad since January 2011 till April 2011.  Often worked till the last one to leave office and gotta bring work home to do.  April 2011 was the peak of my peak period at work.  Now things are more or less settled and hoping to be able to knock off work on the dot from May 2011 onwards till the next peak period around October. Well it is good to be busy at work. I try to have work life balance.  I work hard, I play harder and I rest hardest. In between work and during my madness at work, I also went out to have fun with friends.

This morning I woke up to the news of Osama bin  Laden 's death.  Fashionably yours watched the LIVE broadcast of President Obama at the White House addressing on Osama bin Laden's death.   Osama was hiding in the medium-sized city of Abbottabad, home to a large Pakistani military base and a military academy of the Pakistani Army. After a firefight, they killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body. Muslim tradition requires burial within 24 hours, but by doing it at sea, American authorities presumably were trying to avoid creating a shrine for his followers. Osama bin Laden's body was taken to Afghanistan and later buried at sea after he was slain in Pakistan. President Obama said Justice has been done.  For more, read here

On our local shore, the Singapore General Election 2011 is keeping the nation busy by attending rallies. A lot of my friends went to attend rallies.  Most of us are going to the polling station this coming Saturday 7 May 2011 to vote.  Tanjong Pagar GRC is the only constituency that has walk over.  It was so exciting on nomination day on 27 April 2011. I was on leave that day and watched it LIVE from Channel News Asia broadcasting LIVE from the various nomination centres.  Have been seeing and hearing the PAP lorry going around the estates announcing Please vote for PAP.   Lots of  partis posters are hang up at the lamposts island wide too.   Fashionably yours belong to the Holland Bukit Timah GRC.  Which GRC or SMC do you belong to ?  I am not gonna blog about elections here but just to remind everybody to vote wisely on 7 May 2011.

Wishing everyone a Happy May Day and hope your have an enjoyable long weekends.
