Ezbuy Chat Staff Boey Liar & Lousy Purchaser

4 days delay. Due to lousy purchaser + liar Boey.

4 days ago, I sumitted order for 1 item. Status order "purchasing order". Then suddenly changed back to "order processing". I knew something was wrong.

Next day,  I saw the order disappeared. The purchaser had cancelled it. Reason: Must order 3 pieces.

Seller's website clearly states that 1 piece is Ok.  What's going on? I re-submitted my order for 3 pieces. And purchaser still didn't order. "Purchasing order" for many hours. Suddenly changed back to "order processing".

I went on chat. Stupid Boey came online. As I mentioned in a previous post, get out the moment u see Boey. She's stupid. Now I discover that not only useless, she's also a liar.

Since I really needed a solution, I asked Boey to check with seller whether I can buy 1 piece. Boey pretended to contact seller & got back very fast saying "seller say" must buy 3 pieces. Then why the seller stated can buy just 1? Boey said the seller forgot to bring it down.

What a liar. Forgot? Straightaway I knew it was not true. The seller stated in words, that 1 piece can be ordered. Also, it's a 7 year-old store. How can they "forget"?

No ordering dragged on for another day till this morning. In between, I was also on chat with Sindy who couldn't help.

This morning, I got online with another chat staff. Aaron was very nice. Very patient. He contacted seller for me. Took a long time because seller wasn't there even though his icon is online. So, I told Aaron, I'll try again later.

About 45 mins later, I got Aaron again. He very patiently contacted seller. When finally got hold of the seller, the answer: Seller says can buy 1 piece as well. 

So, what were the purchaser & Boey doing?  Because of their stupidity, it's 4 days delay.

Also, earlier, Boey "contacted" the seller so fast. Clearly, she never contacted the seller at all & was lying.

Aaron could only leave a remark to speed up the order. But after ending the chat, I saw that the 3 pieces finally "order placed".

4 days delay because of the purchaser & stupid Boey.  It's also not the first time. Previously, also cancelled my orders due to their purchaser crazy. And once was worse: Purchaser didn't even order for days.

Not only delay. Because the purchaser won't order 1 piece, I was forced to order 3. More money gone on just these 3 items, which caused me to be unable to buy other items.  2 other items were also cancelled due to purchaser wanting me to order 3 of both items.

Not Happy Starhub Prepaid $15 SIM Phone Card (Scam?)

Mon 10 July 12:35a.m.

>>Should have come across this<<   before buying their Prepaid $15 ($18 value) card. No wonder my psychic feeling told me to stick with M1.  Because previous years ago, I didn't like M1 for being a useless money sucker, I thought to try Starhub this time.

I haven't been using my phone for years. No money to keep topping up my old M1 Prepaid SIM money guzzler. In that M1 card, I kept topping up every 3 months just to keep it alive until it accumulated to $60 or $80 & damn M1 said they wouldn't refund me if I cut the card. In the end, I had to forfeit $60-$80 when I stopped using the prepaid card.

My psychic these days very accurate. I didn't listen to it & this time bought Starhub $15 prepaid with intention of downloading job apps from delivery companies.

In just 5 days (starting 4 July purchase to 9 July around 7+pm), all the money disappeared from this Starhub Prepaid card. I didn't make any phone call. Didn't download anything. All downloads failed when I tried (whatsapp, uparcel, ubereats), which made me realize that my phone is too old to download any Apps. Didn't use SMS at all. I turned off my phone almost always. On the first day after the purchase, I didn't even download anything & didn't know what to do with my phone.

On the day I purchased it, the customer service guy in the store told me that the free data will auto-activate upon purchase, whether I activated the card or not.  Meaning, if I just sat on the card, the 15GB would disappear in 5 days.  So, I thought it was nice of him to tell me.

Even so...

Free 5-day 15GB local data disappeared. $18 value disappeared.  The value in main wallet is now just $0.01.

Where did all the money go? I really have no idea.

Just a brief check online, I see other people experienced the same thing. Missing money.

Really, it's like being robbed without your knowing it.

Am I angry? Do I want to complain for a refund? No. It was expected that Starhub Prepaid would be shit.  On the day of purchase, I had to return to the store to change the card & the cashier took ages to issue me a new one that worked.  The service was slow even though the store was almost empty of customers. But I couldn't just walk over to next door M1 since I already paid for this card.

I don't know what to do with this Starhub card now. It's empty of cash. Can people still call in? Can I still use it to SMS? The expiry date is 6 months away. I have no intention of adding more cash to it.

Talk about scam. I think this is a pretty good one. Starhub. Established name & doing this with prepaid phone cards. I feel more cynically disgusted than upset.

It's a pity because I like this phone number. Easiest & most natural to remember.

Note to Self for Carous***

Never ever allow buyers to leave feedback.  Just this once after a long while, I forgot. A quick click of the mouse & I realized what I had done. Shit. I had accepted the buyer's request to leave feedback. Shit.

True enough, shitty buyer. Unforgiving. Malay man. Smoker. I knew he was going to be a problem.

He got the item, said he liked it, but it took longer than expected to arrive. Gave neutral rating. And it plunged my feedback score from 100% to 66%. Just because of 1 neutral rating. Terrible.

Smoker. Fat. Unhealthy & ugly.  He will pay with his life for plunging another person's feedback to 66%. So, I am not particularly angry.

I expected he would be shit. So, he falls within expectation. My fault for allowing him to leave feedback.

Once click "accept" buyer's feedback request, it cannot be taken back. I shouldn't have accepted. He had already paid. Why the heck did I accept his feedback request for??? *shakes head*

I haven't been accepting feedback requests for a long time. I don't know why I clicked on it this time.

Can the 66% rating be fixed? Of course it can. That's the best part.

Urgent: Looking For: Genuine Skilled Psychics, Tarot Cards Reader & Exorcist

Tues 13 Jun 12:17 p.m.

I've searched online & cannot find one who appears reliable. I cannot afford to pay hundreds of dollars. If you are a genuine psychic, you would not be wanting hundreds of dollars to compensate for the use of a talent that many psychics claim is to help people.

I can afford some money but not hundreds of dollars. If I had that kind of money, I wouldn't need psychic help (I would be rich & already lucky).

My situation is caused by something that needs professional psychic assessment & help. No Chinese mediums.

If you can find it in your heart to help, pls contact me.

We have tried more than anyone can imagine. So do not tell me to de-clutter the house or use sage cleansing or crystals etc... These methods Do Not work. 

We have gone beyond these methods in order to subdue the entity that is causing our troubles. Bro has even invented devices to counter (in a technical & scientific way) what we assumed were ghosts.

We have done practically everything including hammering nails into the wall. Spraying the air with water. Crystals & crystal tuning fork. Smudging with Palo Santo wood sticks. Throwing away almost everything in a room & furniture around the house, including a $2000+ bed & bed frame. UV. Lights. Darkness. Candles. Sound frequency. Loud jarring music from 3 different radios & speakers at the same time. Yelling. Scolding. Insults. Reasoning. Fire/flame. Mosquito coils. Shutting down all electrical power to everything.  Electric mosquito killers.  Clear plastic sheets. Aluminum foil. Opaque plastic boards. Cloth sheets. Clear plastic cylinders with and without water inside, with and without screw-cap tops. Locks, real & symbolic.  Words written on paper & burnt. Plastic guns with rubber-tipped ammunition. Loud hailer. High-pitched alarm.

I am already partly psychic, yet cannot solve my own problem. I can tell if a so-called psychic or Fengshui master is lying or just trying to pull fast money.  Only genuine professionals are needed.

Haunted Bro's Room Malay Male Gay Ghost

5 Jun Mon.

"There is definitely something in that room." said bro at 3.25am this early morning.

He was explaining to me why he thinks it's not a C1 problem. Not a real physical mechanical neck bone problem for which previously we went to a (quack) chiropractor who "confirmed" that it was a C1 problem. Since I wanted a real problem so we can have a real solution, I was almost desperate to cling to the idea that it's a C1 neck problem that can be solved or eased by doing neck rotational exercises.

Earlier in the day he said the exercises eased the squeezing on his neck. Previous night when he had problem with the ghost, it also eased up when he rotated his neck slightly.

It seemed obvious that it's a C1 problem. Until he clarified that even with the neck exercises, it only eased a little. Not completely gone. But when he insults the ghost or yells at it, it clears up instantly, almost 100% gone.  I thought that this could be because when in anger, adrenaline rushes, clearing up the head.  When he calms down, the neck squeezing creeps back in (the ghost returns).

This morning's incident threw out my theory that it's a C1 problem when he clearly explained.

He finally found out what is causing all the recent weeks of sleepless nights.

Every morning at about 2.30-3a.m., he would suddenly wake with neck squeezing, headache & be unable to sleep. Horrible feeling to go back to sleep & he would get up & it would be impossible to sleep for the rest of the "night" until near morning.  He would also be forced to succumb to an inexplicable drowsiness that can't be shaken off when he lies down & when he is suddenly woken up like this.

I advised that perhaps he should leave the house (& not be depressed in his room & also relieve me from his disturbing scolding of the ghost all by himself) & increase his vibrational frequency so that he would no longer be affected by the "hold" of our father's influence on him at night.  We have been thinking that it was our father (the demon) doing some kind of shit long-range influence on us.

Our father has been possessed by a demon for years. He admits it & over the years has been completely taken over. He admits that he & that thing are One.  Sounds nuts, but we have lived with him in this house with his shit demon god since we were kids. And I am a hard skeptic with 2 Science degrees.

If it were just my bro having trouble sleeping at night, I would say it's just him. And I've been worried that he's going nuts or is nuts.

But I have experienced weird shit myself, unexplainable. So I have never dismissed what he tells me.  Just that I listen & try to think of possible & logical explanations for why it might be happening & what the heck it might be, all the while skirting around paranormal explanations.

But this morning, when my bro explained very clearly to me, I understand clearly. He has also previously said that he is clearly & soberly in possession of his own mental stability.

He said, "It is not a C1 problem.".  Because 1) the effect is only when he is within that rectangular area of the mattress. Recently, we threw away his 4 years old $2000+ King Koil bed on the theory that it's harbouring some unseen force (spirit/spirits) that has been troubling him every night.

I offered him my "new" mattress that was bought years ago but kept clean in my room in its bag. Even after his bed has been thrown & we cleaned up the place & laid down the mattress, the problem still remained.

Regardless of whatever my bro did, the neck squeezing & other disturbances that he was feeling, continued. It meant that it wasn't the bed & bed frame that caused it. But bro said he had no regrets throwing away the bed & frame since he had tried everything & nothing worked.

He concluded that it was the space of the bed that was haunted. In the floor, perhaps. But if it's the floor, I said then downstairs apartment will also be affected since our floor is their ceiling. He said there have been quarrels downstairs & upstairs, both Indian families.

The theory is that this ghost has been sent by our father. Don't know how he's doing it but it's the most possible since he claims to be able to astrally project (manifest). And he has been resentful of us with a lot of negative emotions.

I said since it's the space on the floor, then shift the mattress. But he says, "Why should I shift for them? I put my things where I want them.". 

Previously, I had advised him to shift his bed & bed frame but because it was too heavy & not feasible, we didn't do it. As it was, throwing it out took a lot of effort because the bed head was so goddamn big & heavy. Don't ever buy such stupidly huge bed frame stuck to a huge bed head. It couldn't even fit out of the goddamn door frame. The delivery guy installed separately inside the room back then.

2)  If it's a real C1 problem, it should work every time he did the neck rotational exercises. But the exercises only ease the squeezing & don't clear it up. And it doesn't always work.

3) This early morning, when he said "gay man", it eased up. When he said "Malay man", it cleared up almost completely with a "crick" sound in his neck.  Yesterday early morning, he told me that every time the ghost leaves his neck (when he makes correct guesses), he'll hear a "crick" sound & there'll be instant relief from the squeezing & headache.

When he called out "voyeurism" "pervert", it also eased up. Means he had guessed right. The theory is that this ghost used to be a sexual deviant, sexual criminal that got killed somehow & hangs around because he refuses to admit that he is a perverted gay.

When he said, the ghost is "an all-rounder pervert", the large sheet of plastic hanging over the overhanging shirts on his chair top, was swept down.  When I said perhaps it's the wind from the fan, he said it appeared to be swept down by force or anger. If it were blown down, it should have floated down. But it was swept off as though in displeasure & the air was cleared of the presence.

After the insults, he said the room was cleared of any disturbance. But at 6am, it returned, this time unresponsive to the same insults.

This early morning around the usual time when both of us would get drowsy, there was no drowsiness at all. Strange. It has nothing to do with my swimming or the 1 or 2 cups of coffee I sometimes drink during the day. It's a drowsiness at night (10.30-11pm for him &  1-2.30am for me) that we can't shake off.

In my case, this is even stranger because I am a skeptic & don't really care about such things except making money.

I feel no presence in his room every time he complains of ghosts. I stand in his room & don't feel anything, even though I am somewhat psychic. So my theory is that there is nothing there but something is playing with his mind & torturing him. We don't know what that is.  This morning, we discussed & he suggests it's some kind of energy. I think I agree.

At about 6am when the "ghost" returned to disturbed him & nothing worked to dispel it, he speculated that maybe there are more than 1 ghost in his room. So he tested by saying there's 1 ghost. His headache & neck squeezing remained. "2 ghosts" was the same. "3 ghosts" was also the same. "4 ghosts" cleared it up.

He told me that he then tested with the candle flame which confirmed the presence of 4 around the room.

He says if he guesses wrong, the headache comes back & worse than before. If it's right, the headache will clear.  That's when he knows he's hit the correct answer.

All these suggests to me, that it's a game that something or someone is playing. It's a game that he is forced to particpate every night because it wouldn't leave him to sleep.

Even after so many weeks, I can't say there are real ghosts in his room or mine, because I don't feel such  a presence. Yet there is undeniable something here. Question keeps coming up: What is it?  

Bro says if it continues like this, it's possible to go crazy. He also questions why I am not affected to the same degree as him. I say I don't know. I can say that I am affected in various ways but differently.

3)  The night before, he explained to me the disturbance. He would be dosing off when something would shove him physically. He demonstrated by jerking up the clothes rack stand in the kitchen, saying "like this". Every time as he is about to dose off.

It seems the goal is to keep him sleepless.  Sleep deprivation lowers mental strength & less able to handle stress. It seems the goal is to break him. But why?  This type of "haunting" is if a murderer killed someone & that victim returns to take revenge.

In our case, the only offending & recent event was that we evicted my father's demon statue. Since then, shit has been happening. So, if it's not coming from my father, then where is it from?

I Miss Japan 君に会いたい。日本

Mon 22 May 10:37am

Where the people are more intelligent &  the country is more beautiful. Wish I was born Japanese, then I wouldn't know the shit in Singapore. Knowing the shit in Singapore, I don't ever want to leave Japan & just roll up into a ball & stay there where it's safe.

I don't want my parents to be Singaporeans. I wish I never knew them. 

If I were Japanese, I wouldn't need to step out of the country at all. The entire place is so big & different everywhere & all in Japanese, I can just be a tourist in my own country my whole life. No need to step out to see the ugliness of other countries.

Singaporeans are mad & stupid. Why was I born one of them? It's an embarrassment. For years when I was younger, I refused to let people know which country I am from. Small, pathetic island with small, pathetic people. Just pretend I am from No Country. Ok? Just accept me as I am. Don't ask.  My country is inconsequential.

Years ago, LKY tried emulating Japan. But failed. Till now, Singaporeans are still shitty. To be like the Japanese, everyone must ingrain in their kids civic consciousness. National scale, the type of civic consciousness & attitude that is drilled into the brain & skull in every child. Such that even when he is drunk, he will still apologize for being loud.

Singapore with its "scattered sands" attitude & laziness & uneducated & crude mentality will never reach that level. Every child is brought up anyhow. I have seen even young men hawk & spit on the street.

Shitty island. I don't know why foreigners keep coming here. And even applying to stay here permanently. Crazy. As Singaporeans, we are born here. We have no money to move. We have no choice but to stay here.

As foreigners with financial mobillity, why hole yourself in a cramp, little, no place island with nothing?

Online platforms are dead, can't sell anything, can't do anything as an individual. All everyone does is work from morning till night. And the money isn't enough. 20 years ago, a cafe pay was $5/hr. Now, it's still just $5-9/hr (look at the job ads). Majority just $7.50/hr.  I read a Grab driver earned just $5/hr.

How can the pay rise by so little? By now, it should be $10-15/hr at least. How can it be about the same when prices of things have risen?

Thank goodness for $2 stores. That is how hard eating to live has become. How can anyone even think to have any kids when the situation is so bad?

$5-8/hr can't pay for anything. My daily expenditure a day (2 persons), very tight, is already minimum $30 excluding transport. No restaurants. No cafes.  No phone. No extra spending. Even with $2 stores, just some food items, easily add to the daily expenditure, regardless of how little is purchased.

Even for teenagers, such "pay" is very crazily little. You would have to work from morning till night 8 hours just to get $40-$60/day.  Half of it goes to food for 2 persons. There is nothing left to save if CPF also dips the hand inside to take.

Song Fa Bak Kut Teh Review SG: What's That In My Salted Veg?

Location: Chinatown Point.

Been eating there a few times & one of those days, discovered a short, black cut hair in my plate of salted vegetables. Nose hair? Whose? The cook's? The serving woman's?

I posted on their Facebook. No reply & it's now gone.  Obviously, the company doesn't care. I notice these Bak Kut Teh outlets are opened by crude, uneducated people who employ many foreigners.

With the contaminants found in both Song Fa Bak Kut Teh & Old Street Bak Kut Teh, there is no difference between the two. It's just your lucky day if you discover something in your soup or your plates of food.

Review on Old Street Bak Kut Teh:

Lousy Old Street Bak Kut Teh SG Review

Sun 7 May is the last time I'm eating Old Street Bak Kut Teh.

We gave this brand of Bak Kut Teh many chances. And I don't blog about things unless I have to.

1) They hire foreigners.  Rude, crude, uneducated, sloppy, untrained foreigners who lack refinement in customer service.
2) No QC to their service or products.
3) Fluctuating standards. Everytime we eat there, we don't know what's going to go wrong.
4)  Careless staff who do whatever they like at the expense of customers & see nothing wrong with it.

No wonder the outlets are always empty of customers.

We used to eat at ARC. The staff are always chatting in their foreign language while working. Thai? Burmese? Very irritating to hear them. They shouldn't be in Singapore. Why does the company even hire them?

The female staff are rude. Once when we walked in, one plump woman rudely called out that they were closed. No "excuse me". Nothing polite in her words. Didn't even say "Pls come back tomorrow".  So rude, barbarian. This staff is sometimes at ARC & sometimes at Suntec. Always has a shit face. Unsmiling. Female or male staff are all the same.

When we ate there for a few times, we had to wait for her to stroll over to the cashier & she never even thanked us. Once I was so pissed, I said out loud that she didn't even say thanks.  That was the last time.

We went over to Suntec outlet. 

Unfortunately, even at Suntec, the staff were problematic.  Various service problems since the first time we were there. These problems occurred at different times:

1) Coffee forgot to serve after all the food arrived.
2) Dough fritters (You Tiao) suddenly very hard. When I asked, the female staff said it could have been over-fried. I said we have ordered this on previous occasions & it's been soft. I said hard dough is not nice to eat. She agreed & just said she'll inform the person who fried it. No discount as compensation. Nothing.

I asked whether the dough fritters were yesterday's? She insisted that it was not & "not to worry".  We never ordered the dough fritters again.

3)  1-1 ribs soup promotion after 5pm. Once we happened to be there before 5pm & the staff intentionally did not remind us that there was no promotion before 5pm. I say intentionally because usually when we are there after 5pm, the staff will helpfully tell us about the 1-1 promotion. Even though they see us regularly there, they don't even remind us that it's not yet 5pm?

4)  Ribs soup arrived tasting very shockingly flat & bland. What happened? Elderly female staff was walking around with a kettle of refill. I called her as she was coming by.  I said, "Is this the wrong soup? It's like water. Is this soup meant for Mee Sua instead?".

She said, "Oh, it's the new recruit. He must have used the first round of soup that hasn't soaked up the flavor yet.".

I was thinking: Did he use the soup when the meat is still raw??

I asked, "Is this soup Ok to consume?".

She said, "Yes. Just that the flavor isn't there yet. Here, try this kettle soup".

By then, I had already finished the ribs. She poured the kettle soup onto the bones in my bowl & encouraged me to try the "correct" flavor.

i) New guy isn't trained? The whole day, what has he been doing? Nobody supervise? The whole day serve water-soup?  This was already after 5pm.

ii) New guy isn't an excuse for a mistake this big. The ribs soup is the most important signature item. How can the staff just say it's a new guy & serve water-soup?

iii) No discount or any compensation whatsoever. The woman just explained & strolled away to presumably inform the new guy in the kitchen.

5)  The last straw was on Sunday 7 May.  What's that light green string (about 3cm long) among the salted vegetable that I am eating?  I fished it out with my fingertips. Looked like thin plastic string perhaps cut from around the salted vegetables before cooking.  Do you know what happens in my stomach if I ate that? Is the Old Street company going to take responsibility for what happens after I eat it?

I called the male staff who was at the cashier after he was done with a customer.

I said, "What's this? It's in my salted vegetable bowl.".  He looked at it & said, "Oh...".  He apologized with "Bu Hao Yi Si" in Chinese, which means "I'm sorry".

He asked whether it came from the pork ribs or salted vegetables (when I already told him earlier). He then took away the salted vegetables bowl (that we already ate some),  pinched the string off my fingertips & left. He returned a minute later with a full bowl. 

I asked about the string again, "What is it?".

He vaguely explained in Chinese, "It's a packaging string.".

This is the last time we are eating Old Street.

Weirdest Paranormal Event In Our House Monday Night

Wed 3:22pm  19 April 2017.

Note: This is for my own record. Not for any reader to think we are crazy or anything. There is a lot of background information that I didn't say.  If you are reading this, you don't know us at all & cannot say that we are nuts or that these "things" don't exist. If you are a professional psychic who can "see things" in houses,  you're welcome to contact us.

Monday Night Before Midnight.

I was typing at my laptop, working on a paragraph of my novel. Smelled a bad burning smell. Turned round in my seat to look at the hall. Direct line of sight. I saw my bro walking straight towards the balcony but stopping at the pile of stuff before the balcony.

He was holding the aluminum foil tray in his right hand. Looking down at the tray as he walked. When he stopped there, he looked down at the middle of the tray for some moments, then turned & walked back the direction he came.

Earlier, he had said he wasn't going to burn the papers (it will liberate "them" back to the air). 1) So, I thought he had changed his mind.

He appeared to be looking downwards into the middle of the tray where I assumed he had burnt some paper.  I assumed he had come from the master bedroom because I saw he was walking straight towards the balcony area (rather than curve out from his bedroom which is opposite mine).

The smell of burning stank up my room badly. 2) And when he walked away, I was wondering if he was going to flush the ash off in the kitchen bathroom toilet. Hopefully not, because I will be sitting on the toilet and those "things" flushed into the toilet may still remain... (even though he said before that he flushes away the water in the container that he used to trap them in the master bedroom toilet, not in the kitchen bathroom toilet).

3) After he walked away, I started turning on my humidifier in front of my blowing bladeless fan (facing the door) to get rid of the smell that came into my room. The smell of burning typing paper smelled like burning joss paper. I even sprayed my desk area & behind the fan (so the wind will take it forward) & the door area with mist in a bottle containing some aroma essential oils.

For the past 2 nights, I've been lazy with having to refill my humifier so many times with tap water so I try not to  turn it on until I go to bed (so the water will last till the morning).  That night, I didn't turn it on while I was typing until I smelled the burning smell (although my fan was already on).

4) After turning on my humidifier in front of the blowing fan & misting with the spray bottle, the smell cleared. Then I sat back on my chair & resumed typing, thinking that the smell was strong & smelled bad due to the optical brighteners in the typing paper. Toxic chemicals may have been released into the air but just briefly, I thought.

With all these thoughts (#1-4), I still did not step out of my room. I just took what I saw for granted & just sat back down to continue my work. I assumed bro was doing his "thing". When I am typing at the laptop, my attention is on my work & it's a very factual effort. Meaning, I wasn't thinking of anything other than what I am trying to achieve on my latop.

This was also the first night in 2 months that we decided to turn on the lights as if things were normal. We were fed up & decided to invalidate "their" existence. "They" don't exist.

For 2 months, we kept the power to the lights turned off (only use battery lights to prevent EMF emission which "they" take to become a nuisance). It has been very inconvenient & ridiculous. Other people can turn on their electric lights, why can't we? It's crazy.

The moment the lights were turned back on, I started getting headache. But ignored it the whole day. Why shouldn't I be able to turn on the lights in my own house? It's ridiculous.

Later that night, bro came into my room & as usual, we just talked. I didn't mention anything about what I saw earlier & the bad burning smell when he burned the paper in the tray.

Next day, in the daytime, it so happened we were talking about "last night".  I mentioned the scene I saw & the bad burning smell of the paper. He said he didn't do it.

I was surprised. I said "I clearly saw you doing it.".  He said no. The only time he burnt using the tray was much later after I had gone to bed, around 5am or so.  And burnt typing paper does not give off such a strong smell as I described. Once it turns to ash, there is little lingering smell, he said.

I went into the hall & showed him exactly what I saw him do.

I was really disturbed. I mean, come on. I saw him clearly.  And the smell was so strong that I turned on the humifier & misted my room. My mind was sharp & clear & I was wearing glasses. And I was thinking those thoughts (#1-4) as I looked at him with the tray "last night".

Not only did I think the thoughts while looking at the scene, I even took action by turning on my humidifier & misting the room. How could I have seen a hallucination? 

He said if he had burnt the stack of papers (which I saw him dump aside in the living room earlier in the day), he wouldn't have any papers to burn when he did it at past 3.30am. The stack of papers, he insisted, remained where he had left them in the living room.  Now, I can't vouch that the papers were still there at night because I had forgotten about those papers during the day, but I definitely saw him burn something in that tray.

He said when he burns the papers, he does it only in the master bedroom. Why would he come out? He said he don't come out because the wind or breeze from the balcony might interfere. And he only did it once in the master bedroom some days ago. And never did it again, until after 3.30am "last night" (which is technically Tues morning). In between, he did not burn anything.

Also, he said if he had burnt something, the tray would have marks of being cleaned or washed. There were no such marks when he used it a second time after 3.30am.

No sheets of the papers were missing. He said each one has different words on it. Even if he burnt something, what was it? Because he is certain it wasn't the papers that were burnt. 

Now, this is just crazy for me. I mean, if I cannot trust my eyes, even when I saw the whole scene so clearly, what can I trust in this damn house?

I said maybe somehow your memory has been tampered with & you "forgot". He said even so, the stack of papers were still there for him to burn after 3.30am. This point, only he can verify it because I don't know whether the papers were still there until that time.

I refuse to believe that what I saw was not "real". I saw what I saw. Nobody messes with my mind. I really hate that. I refuse to believe that those "things" can be so "powerful" that they can do scenes just because we turned on the power to the lights.

I said, "How can it be? Then won't eye witness accounts be dismissed in a court of law because nobody can be sure the person saw what he saw? Eye witnesses are valued. If no eye witness can be trusted with his eyes, then??".

He said, "Why are you talking about court of law?".

I said, "I am just saying...I saw what I saw.  And I clearly saw you go towards the balcony with the aluminum tray.".  

He said, "Then did you see smoke coming out of the tray?".

It suddenly occurred to me. "No." I said. I thought perhaps the tray was high & the smoke maybe didn't rise high enough.

Odd, now that I think of it. There was no smoke, yet there was very strong smell that filled my room. Also, just now I thought of it: He usually walks with sticky feet sound around the house but there was no sound when I saw that scene.

I asked where in the tray does he burn the paper. He said he burns it at the corner, not in the middle as I presumed to see in that scene. He said he don't burn it in the middle in case the paper does not completely burn whereas at the corner or side, he can get it to burn fully.

Bro told me to just forget about it. I said I will not. Previously, there was another incident that he told me to forget & I just let it go (I can't remember what incident but similar to this case).

Since I am very sure I saw clearly, it means the fault lies with 1) Bro. Maybe his mind has been tampered with & he can't recall. Or so muddle-headed with brain-fog that he forgot.

If so, as he already explained, that stack of papers will not still be there after 3.30am for him to burn.

He said, earlier in the day when he dumped that stack of papers in the living room, he had no intention to burn them at all (because as mentioned, he didn't want to liberate "them" back into the air). Why would he burn them later? And he only burnt them after 3.30am because those "things" were disturbing his sleep. I said there are some instances where he changed his mind abruptly. He said even so, he would remember & say that he changed his mind. In this instance, he insists he did not do what I saw him do.

2) Those "things" really exist & they played with my mind. They took advantage of my focus on my typing & slipped in while I was in an imaginative mode in my writing.  Vivid. Real. A shift from what I'm typing to the real world. Is it that hard to do? The mind is already primed & "open". And as I mentioned, I just took for granted that what I was seeing was as usual. Bro was wearing what I saw him wear throughout the day: just a black shorts.

I'm just very disturbed & perplexed & displeased. I told bro that if his mind was going nuts, rather than that, it would be a relief if someone told me that yes, that scene I saw was a hallucination caused by those "ghosts" in the house. I don't fear ghosts as much as if I have to worry about my bro & fear him.

There is no reason for my bro to lie. He is also not a liar.

And he said when he entered my room "last night" to talk, he had noticed that I turned on my humifier in front of my blowing fan, but he didn't know why. He said he didn't connect it to my seeing him burn the paper & it stank (because he didn't do it).

Also, he said he had glanced into my room through the gap (I left my door ajar) & saw that my yellow lamp was off & candlelight was behind my door. He said he was quite relieved that I turned off the lamp because he was concerned about the electrical bill going up if I left it on the whole night. This lamp is old-style & not energy efficient.

I said what he saw was correct.  I had turned off the lamp assuming it was perhaps making me unable to sleep & I had lit the candles behind my door instead. Since he is so observant, then his memory is correct.

He said his mind was clear & he would remember if he had burnt paper in the hall. Also, the cleaning up of the tray after burning paper takes some effort. Definitely won't forget if he burnt something. He said therefore, his memory is not in question. 

Since there can be no explanation, I have to let it go. Another case that I have to let go, although this is the first time I have to blog about it. I can't just let it go without some record here.

Background information:  

Earlier in the day, he was "shooting" at the written paper/s stuck to a board on his pillow. He said "they" are in the paper. I said "burn it". He said he didn't want to as it would liberate them back into the air. He walked out of his room & slapped the sheets onto a box at the side along the hall & walked off while I watched him thinking that he should burn it otherwise these "things" will then linger in the hall.

Because of this, he suggested that because I had said "burn it", those "things" are showing me what I want to see.


I couldn't sleep at all even till 3.30am. Although I stopped typing (due to drowsiness) at about 1.30am & went to bed, I didn't sleep at all. Oddly my mind was sharp & clear in bed (I considered maybe it was the small amounts of coffee I drank in the daytime, although I did consider it was caused by those "things".).

Then I heard bro having nightmare in his bedroom at around that time. Two separate sounds of his voice in a boy's high-pitched tone when he's having nightmare. Earlier, he had been having trouble with his pillow & didn't manage to get rid of the "thing" that has been disturbing his sleep for many days already. So, I expected he would have a disturbed night. 

However, he hadn't been having nightmares for a long while since putting Black Tourmaline  on his bed. Some time ago, he had removed the Black Tourmaline.

He was snoring loudly despite his nightmare. So, I guessed he wasn't aware that he was having a nightmare. His door was completely closed (previous nights he left it ajar).

I said loudly, "Are you having a nightmare? You haven't had nightmares for a long time already. Put the Black Tourmaline back on your bed.".

I listened for a response. I was thinking of saying that if "it" continued disturbing my bro, I will step into the room. But I didn't say that since bro said it might give them power to be more "real".

Bro was still snoring. But he stopped making the nightmare sounds. So, I went back to my bed. But still couldn't sleep. At about 3.30am, I got up to eat some bread with soup. Then went back to lay in bed.

I had turned off my yellow lamp on my desk (afraid it would overheat & that it was keeping me awake even though previous nights I had slept fine with it & even 3 of such lights).  And lit a plate of candles instead behind my door (another plate of candles already earlier lit outside my door). 

The moment I lay down (my own door ajar), bro opened his door & came out. Shortly, he returned & closed his door. So I thought he was fine. Then I was able to sleep. So after that, whatever he did, I don't know.

He said he was disturbed by his pillow & started "shooting" the words on the paper/s while afraid that I might be awakened by the sound. Then later, he took the papers & burnt them in his room. There was little smell & he turned on his exhaust fan to suck out any remaining smell.

I said I did not know he did that as I had already fallen asleep by then.

Goodbye Oven Marvel @ Sunshine Plaza (Negative Review)

Mon March 20

Won't be buying anymore from this woman.  Rude since the first time I bought from the shop.  Rude & proud woman. Just because she sells out some chicken pies & curry puffs, she gets it to her head that her stuff are great.

The chicken pies & curry puffs are so-so only. Bro & I go there sometimes because there's nothing else to eat in that Sunshine Plaza area & it's convenient.

Today I asked for 2 chicken pies. Gave her $10 note. She looked at the slightly crumpled middle folded part of the note, tried straightening it & asked in Chinese, "Is this originally like this?".

I said it got squashed in my wallet.

She said in Chinese, "We have to protect our money.".

Immediately, I felt I didn't want to buy anymore.  Criticising my money. My money is little & precious. Consider yourself lucky I buy from you when your stuff isn't that great anyway.

She then gave me the change. But instead of putting the money in my hand, she put it onto the countertop. I had to pick the 4 ten cents coins one by one. 

I was thinking when I walked out the shop,  "protect our money"? You can't bring it along when you die. So what if all your dollar notes are straight? So small-minded. Offensive woman. I bet she offended other customers too.

The note was only slightly crumpled in the middle part. It's still $10.  Just because of some crumple, she criticizes my money. Very bad. Very tactless & stupid woman.

Bro was angry when I told him what happened. He said I should've taken back my money & thrown back her pies at her.  He said, "You should've said so earlier. If I knew what happened, I would have returned the pie.".  I had bought 1 of the pies for him but only told him what happened after he ate it.

Another Lousy Night with Paranormal Shit in our House

If you don't believe my experience in this post, just walk away. You are not the one having to deal with this problem every night. Any reader who thinks he/she is so smart, can come & solve these problems for us. I'm fed up of these shit.

I've no money to go to hotel room even for 1 night, let alone permanently. Bro says why should we surrender our house to these entities? This is our house. We fight.

It's been almost a month since 18 Feb & while we have more information from Bro's experiments on the ghosts/entities in our house, we have made little progress in getting rid of all of them.

Last night, bro was so tired, he roughly tested the bed with candle & said all clear. I didn't quite believe it.

Despite the risk, placed candles on my bed &  slept with it. My bed is those type like in the advertisement, can throw a bowling ball on one side & won't wake the other person on the other side. So the candles are safe & I'm a disciplined sleeper. 

Only mistake, the fan was on. Only morning then I realized. They are afraid of the heat from the candles. With the fan on, the heat is dissipated. No wonder they were still around disturbing my sleep.

Bedhead candle was flicking badly. I thought it was the fan. This fan is bladeless type so the wind is just fair. The other candles were burning steadily along the middle & foot of the bed.

When I rest my head on the pillows there, my cough is triggered. Keeps coughing until I sit up & move away. Suspect it's the bedhead.

So I put my head at the foot of the bed, resting on my stomach with face sideways on the cushion & still cough. I put my slab of Selenite on top of the cushion & rested my face again sideways on top of the Selenite & cough stopped.

So I tried again to sleep on my pillows. Put my Selenite slab on top of the pillows & my head resting on top of the Selenite. It worked. No coughing. But after that, started coughing again.

Returned to foot of bed position with face resting sideways on top of Selenite on cushion & this time, cough started.

Selenite is useless against ghosts.

This disturbance is despite the candles I placed on plates around me. As mentioned, I shouldn't have left the fan on.

I sat up in the middle part of the bed along the side (near the wall) & stopped coughing. My throat felt fine. But how to sleep down the width? My feet will be sticking out.

This morning was thinking those tealights are going to be expensive to buy for every night. These entities are really unlucky. Causing us to waste money on crap.

Muji tealights expensive.  But lasted 5 hours & 20 mins. I started them 2am & they finished at about 7.20am. Pretty long-lasting & steady burn. Really good quality made-in-Japan. But the flame isn't tall. 

No static disturbing my hair because the power was cut. But tonight is going to be hard without turning on the fan (for the candles to burn well with heat).  I left the fan on last night because it'll be warm without fan. Didn't know the heat from the candles is necessary to be useful against them.

So fed up.

Previous night was worse. A lot of static disturbance. And odd bruise up my thigh next morning. Odd wound near by stomach area.

Pest Ghosts, EMF & Tagging with Smell

As mentioned in previous post, this is for my own record. Not for people who think that the universe is square because their own mind is square.

9:22am Fri 10 Mar

I just woke up. It's very strange. Ever since we unintentionally "tagged" the ghosts with insecticide (days of mosquito coil), we can smell them wherever they are.  We had wanted to get rid of them by smoking them out of the house.

They are very dependent on EMF from the main power cables, so bro cuts the power at night to the appliances that we don't need (example, washing machine).  It allows us to get a bit of sleep without much disturbance. They still disturb us during sleep when we are vulnerable but at least they don't gain power to be more active.

This morning when I woke, the air smelled "clean". All "quiet". No activity, as if the ghosts had left. They stay in my dad's room (master bedroom). No matter how much we throw away, clean up & air the place, the smell is still there. The whole room still reeks of the insecticide as if it's still burning.

We threw away almost all the furniture in the room. A week or more later, we can still smell it.

The oddest thing is that it can "draft" out of the room at any time even though the windows are shut inside.  Or as if the door of his room is open when actually it's closed. Sometimes, there would be no smell at all from under the open slit under the door.  And the smell appears around the house suddenly in different rooms at different areas or corners.  When the smell is noticed, it can disappear immediately (if it chooses to).

When I say "so smelly!", the smell retreats. 

In other words, the smell (the particles in the air carrying this smell) is sentient. Somehow, we had managed to "tag" the ghosts with the particles of the insecticide.

To put aside any excuse that the smell is from the leftover junk & floor, yesterday, I mopped the floor with detergent, washed the windows, wiped the door, scrubbed the bathroom in his room & threw out the rest of the junk. And still that smell remains. (We'll be throwing away the old $7000 bed that my dad wouldn't let me throw many years ago. He called this morning & gave permission for us to throw away.).

We have been keeping the door to that room closed since the "fumigation" a week or more ago.

This morning when I woke, as I mentioned, the air smelled "clean". No insecticide smell around. When I passed by dad's room, there was also no smell. A bit of "swimmy" feeling in the kitchen that built up a bit when I entered. I suspect some ghosts have hidden themselves in the enclosed cupboard under the kitchen sink.

After washing my face, I wanted to start the washing machine. Since bro had cut the power supply, I went to turn it back on at the mains in the living room.

The moment I did  & passed by the room to return to the kitchen, I could smell the smell wafting a bit out. So fast they woke to the EMF.

The kitchen started to give an even more "swimmy" feeling in my head. It's like a headache at my forehead. That's how I know they are out.  

I don't get that "headache" when I'm out of the house. And it disappears completely when I'm at the crystal shops or at a store that has a comforting, inviting feel ("good vibe) where I can stay &  relax & be at peace.

[These days, it's a treat to go there. Wish I live in that store. I spend some time there to take a break (recharge) before going "home". Oddly, bro does not feel anything from that store & his brain fog does not clear up while we are there.].

His brain fog and my "swimmy headache" are similar.  But I think it's on a different level because of our different minds. When mine clears up at a certain sound frequency (that we tested), his doesn't. And when his clears up at a different frequency, mine gets worse.

Last night, the smell kept staying in my room at a particular corner beside my laptop while I was typing. Kept disturbing me. Felt very drowsy, can't work on my writing. It's not normal because it will "disappear" briefly when I circle the area with Black Tourmaline. Other methods I tried didn't work.

I noticed the smell quite early actually. Around 9pm or 10pm. I was relaxing on my bed & there would be that insecticide smell coming from my pillow. When I noticed & tried to sniff it, it disappeared. Then it would suddenly be in the air briefly when I sat up before disappearing again. Then it hung around my laptop area. I checked outside the window & around & again it disappeared.

It was like this till past midnight. At about 1am onwards, it remained in the space on the left side of my laptop. When I bent down to check, I could smell it. Even till 2am, it was still bothering. And all the while, I was having this swimmy "headache" & drowsy feeling.

The drowsy feeling is a way of making me want to sleep even though I am still feeling awake & sharp-minded.  (When I sleep, it'll disturb the sleep cycle or the body because the sleep will be troubled while sleeping and I'll wake feeling like shit.).

I do not take any medication, any coffee or anything.  I'm cleaner in my habits than many people.

Finally, I tied a quartz crystal facing downwards on the middle of my forehead (lower down between the brows) & my mind cleared up like new.  Before this, I tried Selenite oval, Black Tourmaline & pyrite. They didn't work as well as the clear quartz arrow/spear.

When I face the quartz arrow pointing up, the effect is not as good as pointing down. No idea why.

I think the area that I covered is the 3rd Eye. I don't know if it's always been partially open or fully open, or we accidentally opened our 3rd Eye somehow. But I think we are noticing these spiritual problems because our 3rd Eye has opened.

Another odd thing: At first, I looked at the dirty floor that needed to be cleaned, so I didn't notice the wall. But when I finished scrubbing the floor of the master bedroom bathroom yesterday, I suddenly noticed that the white tiled wall above has a perfect brown arc across.

More inspection shows other streaks of brown on that wall. Previously, I detected with my dowsing rods that there were portals above the mirror & higher up the wall. The streaks match those areas indicated by my rods.

The color of the arc matches the ash or dust of the insecticide coil particles. The door also has this brown dust.

Assuming it's a lizard that scuttled across the tile, there should be streaks of moving feet & swaggering line. But the arc is very precisely smooth & uniform width. Perfect arc shape.  It starts out of nowhere on the wall (above the mirror edge where previously I had detected portal with the rods) and disappears into nowhere on the wall.

There are other streaks, same color towards and around the power cable hidden in the trunking higher up (didn't manage to aim the camera at the trunking part.).

I emphasize that these streaks or smears were not there before the fumigation. I know because I was using my dowsing rods & looking at every area for portals. The master bedroom bathroom had (or has) 3 portals.

I called bro into the room to take a look. He was intrigued.  I asked if there was any physical reason for that arc. It looks a lot like an orb ghost escaping from the thick smoke (that was done about a week or more ago).

The other streaks look like panicked fleeing to the portals and power cable in the trunking. During the "fumigation" we know the smoke drove a lot of them out because they came out of the room causing headaches etc... and they were measurable on the voltmeter.

The voltmeter has been tested to exclude ambient or artefact EMF readings.  Bro has now become seasoned at detecting when it is normal EMF and when it's something else.

After we looked at the arc on the tiled wall, I sprayed Mr Muscle (light bleach) on part of it. When I flushed it off with just water, that part of the  arc washed away. But when I tried scrubbing out the higher part of the arc (without the bleach), it couldn't be washed away.

Bro said it's like tyre skid marks on the road. Those marks cannot be removed because it has "burnt" into the material. Likewise, it seems this arc was done at high velocity & impact into the tiles. It couldn't be scrubbed out even with a coconut husk scouring brush (only a bit was washed off with harder scrubbing).

We will need a lab person to analyse the tile & the marks.  

Isn't it possible that grease marks that weren't visible before show up due to dust particles from the insecticide? If that's the case,  why aren't there streaks on the other walls of the bathroom?  Why are the streaks at the areas where my dowsing rods had earlier indicated portals?

Part of the arc that I didn't scrub out because it was high up on the wall, is still there. I have also left the other streaks without scrubbing since I can't reach them anyway. Just leaving them there as a record.

After trying to get it out (I decided to leave it there). Took a video of it.  Looks a bit dark because I didn't turn on the bathroom light.  The faded bottom part of the arc is where I sprayed the bleach & part of it was washed away. Even so, traces of the bottom section of the arc can still be seen.

Above the arc, there're very obvious straight lines up along the pipe. A lizard would not do that.  As mentioned above, I didn't manage to aim the camera at the cable trunking on the right side of the pipe where there are more streaks under it (I ended up aiming at the wall below it).

The wall is completely white tiles all the way to the top.

Bro said if this are really their trails, it means these ghosts are physical.  I'm not surprised.  The fact that they reek of the insecticide means the insecticide is of smaller particles that stuck onto the larger ghost orbs/particles. They can't get rid of the insecticide particles stuck onto them because they are static-charged.

If only we could tag them with fluorescent particles. Then with goggles, we can see them. Bro said seeing them is useless if we can't get rid of them.

So far, we found there's nothing spiritual about these spirits or ghosts. They are particles, amorphous like smoke with ancient or old-fashioned ways. Like vampires afraid  of garlic.

Science can defeat them easily if scientists put their minds to it. Bro says, "They don't do it because there is no money in it.".

I said, "Not only that. Their reputation is on the line. Their peers will look down on them, their research grants, their research journal publications, their credibility will go downhill.".

Bro said, "Michio Kaku said that in the past, you would be laughed at if you talked about string theory.".

I was thinking, string theory is now part of physics.

Bro's Comment on Smelly Ghost

1a.m. Wed 8 March 2017

Bro kept sayingthat the area before the kitchen "so smelly" like Semac (the ex-garbage disposal company). He said, "How can you spend eternity smelling like Semac? At least, go take a bath on the Other Side.".

Recalling his comment, I smiled while recounting it to him.

He said, "Yeah. Commonsense that when you are smelly, you bathe. They lost their sense of hygiene. Their compassion. Their humanity ("yan seng" in Cantonese). Everything that makes human beings great.".

I agree. Bro sometimes surprises by saying the most profound, most correct things now that he is older.


9:56am (update)

Bro has a paranormal sense of smell. Sometimes, I can also smell "things" but not this time. These days I've been very  reluctant to come home because of our tiresome "fight" with these ghosts.

In the daytime yesterday, we discussed & I insisted these ghosts were sent because it's not normal for so many to be here causing trouble. Previously, one had already been sent to the balcony. We should've realized that all these others were also sent, but it was a suspicion that oddly, we were slow to realize.  This time, it seemed clear to me.

That being so, bro used a different plan.

Last night, we came home at about 9.30pm. All along the corridor, bro noticed a stench of garbage.

In the house, after we bathed & he was doing his other weapon, he again kept saying it stank of Semac.

I smelled nothing. We looked out the window & there didn't seem to be any garbage smell outside the kitchen.

Later, in my room, he said it stank & he smelled outside the window & said perhaps the wind blew up the stench from the garbage door downstairs (even though I know it's always closed properly & we had previous time went downstairs to check that there was no smell coming from it).

I typed out to him on notepad that "I think (the new weapon) works". He said they could be clustered outside the corridor & window since they can't come in through dad's room anymore. 

His other weapon that he was making at that moment was also working wonderfully. But I think it's the new weapon (that was installed in the day) that was really working.

Suspicious. Last night was the best in the all the nights since we had trouble with these ghosts. With this, we confirm they were sent by dad's demon "god". Motive: To make it unbearable for us, so that we'll get him back.  

Unbelievable, but there are some things that happen whether we believe or not.  Whatever that makes sense in a crazy situation, is the answer. Denying it will only make it difficult to reach a solution.

Our life has become such a nightmare, so surreal that I've stopped being stubborn. Our attitude now, is "whatever". All because of 1 man & 1 woman who made the mistake of marrying without looking at the better things in life that they could have enjoyed by being single.  And dragged their children into a nightmare that for decades we have had to suffer, endure & now fight off.

With those "things" gone, my paranormal-caused piles has disappeared this morning. I don't think it's the ginger-lemongrass combo that I took last night. I've been taking ginger for another reason for 2 nights & no change. There has been no cause, no reason for the piles to happen.  Grade 3 piles happened suddenly, instantly, within 1-2 hours of my checking of the spirit portals many days ago & didn't heal.

I'm writing this for my own record. Not for anyone to criticise in disbelief. If you don't believe what you read, then walk away believing in your own thing. Consider yourself luckier that you can walk away.

I've learnt that "beliefs" are useless in the face of reality. Reality don't care what you believe, what your principles or ideals are.

If you believe there's a god when there is none, you can take that to the grave & find out belatedly for yourself. If there's a god, there won't be ghosts causing trouble in the physical world. There is no law, no governing body. As bro says, "Life & the universe is fucked up.".

528Hz & 432Hz Attracts Ghosts

Tues 3:32pm 7 Mar 

I just tested it. If you're into ghost investigation, you can try these frequencies. These are supposedly "universe tones", "god tone", "divine" or earth's music. Zero information on what these frequencies actually do. People make a lot of assumptions, sleeping & meditating with these tones without knowing what they do.  It is also wrong to assume that these frequencies do nothing.

My hypothesis is that because ghosts are negative energies, they are drawn to the calling of these "earth" "universe" frequencies.  These tones could be functioning like the "Light" that is supposed to take them to the "other side". But for some reason, no "Light" came to take them. Or they chose not to go.

If these frequencies could take them away like the "Light", it will be great. Unfortunately, these tones are only frequencies played via Youtube. There is no spiritual function other than what is played. Sadly.

Or they could be attracted to the frequencies out of curiosity.

We have confirmed on our side that they feed on EMF. When EMF sources are turned off completely, their activity & range collapses. They feed quickly from the mains electrical power.

Cables & wiring with power running cause them to congregate in areas. When mains power has been turned off, they will go closer to the cables or wiring to "drink" closer to the source, thereby shrinking their range & activity, at least temporarily until the mains are turned on again.

EMF sources have to turned off completely. Appliances turned off & unplugged.  Light sources emitting high EMF need to be replaced.

Regarding "unplugged",  I read online about one woman who is "hypersensitive" to EMF. Her husband said the microwave oven not only had to be turned off, it also had to be unplugged. Gym machines emit so much EMF, it was unbearable for her.

With our current troubles with ghosts, I would say her problem is perhaps not EMF sensitivity. She could be sensitive to ghosts.

Dangerous to Ignore or Rationalize Away Spirit Entities & Portals

Update: 11.45am 4 Mar Sat: We have new information on spirit portals. From further experiments, these portals are not stand-alones. These ghosts/spirits open these portals through which they pass & the portals close after them. Portals = ghosts/spirits. Get rid of these spirits & the portals will go with them. Where do these spirits get the energy to open or carry their own "transport"? EMF. They take energy from electrical wirings & cables.  2 nights ago, bro was able to get them to show a "1", "2" & "3" on his meter ("show me a '1'" & his meter showed it, but up till 3 they would not show a "4".). He says they can take instruction, therefore they are sentient. However, they refuse to leave.

Last night at close to 10pm, bro's meter registered spirit presence at the kitchen basin area. Caused brain fog. Bro got so pissed, he used the block of black tourmaline he was holding to whack at the air that registered the reading. The meter then read "0".  But the presence had simply moved aside. So bro said, "If u don't leave, I'm going to use 8000V to zap you to a zillion atoms or whatever it is you are made of. Whatever it is you're made of, I doubt you can withstand 8000V."  As bro walked past me to get something, he said to me that they are just made of particles.

Unfortunately, that presence continued staying.

I've always been a skeptic psychic. Ignoring many inexplicable things that I sometimes encounter. I shut my mind out to any weird shit.

I believe that everything has a rational, logical explanation, whether we know it or not. There has to be some simple & logical explanation. If unexplainable, it just means science hasn't an answer yet.

But truth is, as I have found out recently, whether we believe in such things or not, they exist. 

In fact, pretending they don't exist, aids these spirits & their spirit portals.

The more people deny that they exist & deny that there are such things as ghosts, spirits & entities, the better they can wreak havoc in our physical world. By ignoring them, we give them power to do whatever they like without our knowledge or our interference.

They open spirit portals in our homes. But you don't even know that such portals are there. You can't see & don't realize what these things are doing to your lives.

Suddenly, serious illness develop for no clear reason. Tumors that change size at different times of the day & night.  Mysterious symptoms (such as brain fog) that doctors can't figure out. Your life isn't going anywhere no matter how hard you try or how optimistic you always have been.  Zero luck. All paths of your endeavours that should have worked cut off for no reason. You think it's just coincidence, random & it happens to everybody.

You never expect or consider that spirit portals in your house or entities that you worship (or don't worship) are causing your situation & will ultimately kill you & those you love. The evil will pass down to your children if you don't stop it.

Many websites & forums only theorize (their beliefs) about spirit portals or "negative entities". These people don't have first-hand personal experience in actually shutting down spirit portals. They don't know what these spirits are or how portals work. They don't know what they are talking about.

Crystal websites keep saying "negative energies", "clearing space", "smudging with palo santo & sage". They don't know shit about what the crystals & smudging can actually do & can't do.

Not even crystal sellers know what the heck they are actually selling. Although they believe they are not selling just rocks, they also don't know anything about the crystals they sell except for textbook answers they read & parrot out to customers.

Two crystal sellers couldn't even identify a small piece of crystal that I brought into their shops. One of the shops was actually the shop that I originally got the crystal from.

Since locating & experimenting with spirit portals, I've come to realize that there is so much we don't know about the spirit (unseen) world.  Our knowledge is so lopsided that while we have accumulated so much information about the physical world, our knowledge of the spirit world is flat bottom. So much more we have to know to catch up.

Because scientists keep ignoring the existence of the spirit world & entities, information & research have been Zero.  While we have progressed in understanding our physical world, we have not moved with regards to understanding the spirit world.  For now, because of lack of scientific understanding, I say "spirit world". It is likely a quantum mechanics world existence.

US Held Hostage by Its Immigrants: A Day Without Immigrants (Lesson for Singapore)

Friday 17 Feb

This shows how bad the immigrant situation has become over the years of lax immigration. Once they go on strike or riot or stay home, your country comes to a standstill. They hold your country hostage.

And as a leader, you will be blamed for trying to reverse the mistake that other presidents dared not touch for so many years. Your own citizens (which ones are true Americans now?) turn against you, instead of supporting you.

Immigrants hold the country hostage & they are proud of it. This is the meaning of "immigrant". If they loved the country, they will not do that.  They do this because their "money road" is being threatened.

This hostage situation is what Singapore will become if foreigners keep coming & staying with families, relatives & friends. Infestation of immigrants that will be very difficult to remove without problems because they have been incorporated into the economy & society.

It does not help when your own country citizens also start reproducing with these immigrants, producing all kinds of different breeds of "citizens". 

This is what no country wants (unless you don't mind the country falling apart when immigrants show off their numbers).

Immigrants are never beneficial. They are destructive. They destroy a host country's values, culture & way of life.  In a few years, the country becomes shit. 

Japan is lucky in that the Japanese people are very protective of their culture & society. Those who try to break it are malicious foreigners & half-breeds.  Once a nation's identity is destroyed, it's almost impossible to retrieve.

This is what immigrants can do to your country if you let them flood in:
Immigrants around the U.S. stayed home from work and school Thursday to demonstrate how important they are to America's economy, and many businesses closed in solidarity, in a nationwide protest called A Day Without Immigrants.
It was unclear how many people participated, but in many cities, the actions were disruptive, if not halting.

Immigrants are actually costly to maintain. Rather than "contributing" to a country, the host country spends more money. In Singapore, space shrunk. Overcrowding. Public facilities & transport infrastructure were not built to accomodate so many extra people. New buses, new trains have to be purchased to keep up with the numbers when actually, the true population of Singaporeans hasn't increased that much.

Limited bus seats occupied by foreigners. For every foreigner sitting in a bus, there is one seat less for a Singaporean.  This is a fact.

The US & Europe ignores the immigrant problems at their own expense. Is the US any better since allowing in so many immigrants?  Has it progressed at all? Have they become a better & more responsible people? Are they a richer & more advanced nation? No. 

Does the US have a national identity as strong as Japan? The US is just a hodgepodge of people that cannot claim any form of national identity except for their passports.

Ezbuy's Fake "Korea" Purchasing Agent Service: Facebook Deleted My Comment

2:20am 6 Feb Mon

It was just a normal question in their Facebook. I asked, "When can I buy from all Korean websites?".

It was deleted. What's so difficult about replying to this question? Why delete it?  Ezbuy said it was not deleted. Then why is it missing?

It's all the more disturbing considering I have been buying through Ezbuy & put up with their crap since when they were 65daigou. I've said it many times before that if there was a better agent (I used to have my own agents who worked only for me), I wouldn't use Ezbuy (65daigou).

If possible, try to avoid Ezbuy. A lot of comments in their Facebook have said they are unreliable. I have to agree that to some extent Ezbuy cannot be trusted. Previously, they have also been deleting chunks of negative comments from their Facebook.

They also tend to change their way of doing things suddenly without informing customers.  It's best not to put too much money into them or into your purchases. One day, if they suddenly "disappear", at least the loss is not so great.  Just a precaution.

If you run a business, you cannot rely on Ezbuy because there is no guarantee your stock will arrive on time. As many long-time customers know, their ordering processing, "inspection" & shipping times are not reliable.

At the moment, Ezbuy is getting people to buy only a few selected Korean skincare & cosmetics products at Ezbuy's listed prices. They don't have actual stock. And the items are listed on Ezbuy's website (not the actual brands' sites.).

When you enter a Korean website URL in Ezbuy's search box, Ezbuy's system will only show the 3 countries that you can buy from. Korea is absent.  

In other words, Ezbuy is conducting a spree for only Korean skincare & cosmetics products.  It is not a true purchasing agent for Korean websites.  Not even for Korean skincare & cosmetics products since Ezbuy lists the items on its own page (rather than leading to brands' websites that contain the full range of products.).

But Ezbuy makes it look as if it's a purchasing agent for Korea by stating "Korea Ezbuy" "New Service Launch".

Purchasing agent means customer can buy from any website of that country through the agent who will ship the items to customers. If purchasing agent cannot purchase from the websites, then that is not a purchasing agent. 

Previously, I asked their chat staff when I can buy from Korean websites. The staff said "soon". I guess she was referring to this "new launch" that is actually a spree of only skincare & cosmetics items. Now, I asked in their Facebook & my question was deleted.

In the past, I bought from a Korean purchasing agent. But when items enter Singapore, they go through Speedpost/EMS. In the past, this was fine. It took only 2 days to receive my parcels. Now, I can't use Speedpost anymore because it has become shit.

Ezbuy US Ordering Also No Order on CNY: Super Slow Recovery Post-CNY

1 Feb Wed 11:31am

Ezbuy is so damn slow. They didn't say their US staff also on long CNY holiday. Only informed that China ordering & shipping will be non-existent during an overly & unnecessarily long CNY period that they give themselves. I hate China.

*shakes head* How can a purchasing & forwarding company take so many days off even after CNY? Look at the live chat date of recovery: holiday until 1 Feb!! Terrible.

Look at the e-mail enquiry recovery: until 5 Feb.

No purchasing even on 3 Feb.

Even if no China purchasing, there should still be US purchasing, right? The US side shouldn't be affected by CNY.  But Mon & Tues (30th & 31st Jan) also no purchasing.

It means their US purchasers are in Singapore.  These days, I also noticed they started ordering during SG daytime (which is late at night or in the middle of the night in the US).  If the purchasers are really in the US, then they are just slow. 

Look at their "operation" schedule for CNY period below:  No mention of US side stopping.

I submitted my US orders since 29 Jan.  Still not yet ordered as this post. Very inefficient.

In the first place, why have such a long post-CNY break that inconveniences customers? Second, since Ezbuy is going to halt US purchasing as well,  Ezbuy needs to inform. I don't even know when my items are going to be ordered.

I mean, come on. It's business as usual for so many companies already. Even Daiso was business as usual on 28 Jan. And Ezbuy is supposed to be a "big" company. Not a little shop somewhere.  Why are you taking more than 1 week holiday since 27 Jan?

Even the China Taobao sellers are online & open for business yesterday (31 Jan).

I could order direct from the US but shipping costs more to SG (than going through Ezbuy's air rate). And my order will go through Singpost which has become unpredictable crap.  EMS/Speedpost is as good as non-existent since it causes so much stress now, it can't even be used to order anything.

Recently, before CNY, I happened to meet the usual nice lady at Tanjong Pagar warehouse. She had quit some months ago but never mentioned the reason. That day, I was very surprised to see her back. She said she was just dropping by, not back working.

When the Ezbuy guys handed me my parcels, she looked on & commented, "No plastic bag?". I said these days, Ezbuy has even stopped giving plastic bags. She said, "Yeah! Si Bei Ngeow hor?!! Si Bei Ngeow!!". She shook her head with emphasis on "si bei ngeow" (super stingy).  I agreed. 

The amount of money Ezbuy makes, they can't even give a plastic bag to customers? It's stingy because previously, they used to have plastic bags at the warehouse collection offices. Even at Taiseng recently, the staff said they did not have a plastic bag. I had to carry the loose items that I took out from the item's box that was too big & bashed up.

[Update 1:23pm:  They just ordered my items & it's 9.22pm in Oregon.]
[Update 8:03pm: My other US item has also updated to "arrange delivery" after 7 days shipping. 3 days earlier than ETA date.  Finally, Ezbuy has awakened. Things are moving again.]

Update 11.04pm 2 Feb Thurs:  Even the China couriers are moving already. Ezbuy still sleeping post-CNY:

Japan's Method of Controlling Immigrants: I Love It!

Japan is undoubtedly rich. It can afford to pay foreigners to get lost. I wish Singapore would do that. But Singapore has other methods that will work if the government chooses to do it. Why waste money to get rid of trash?  But understandable if such trash sticks worse than glue & refuse to leave even when lack of jobs.

The problem with foreigners is that after staying for some years in a host country, they think they own the host country & that the host owes it to them to keep providing benefits.  They start saying things like "my country" "my city".

For goodness' sake. Where the heck did you come from, Foreigner? Go back to it & "contribute" over there.

Next moment, they will want more foreigners to join them in the host country. Like fleas that say "Hey! Come here! Good pickings here!".  Stupid foreigners don't think: If more come, there'll be fewer opportunities & jobs for themselves.

Look at the photos of those Brazillians. It's a shame they carry Japanese surnames. Look at their faces. They don't even look an ounce of Japanese! Look like Neanderthals.

Look so uncouth & totally Brazillian. So ugly the woman. Look at the way she dresses: unzipped front showing her cleavage. How can she even have any Japanese blood? So crude.

And they even shouted at the officials when told even their kids cannot return to Japan to work. "Shouted". Japanese people would not shout.  I tell you: Even drunk, they will apologize when they are shouted at by officials.

How could Japanese people have had sex with Brazillians & Peruvians??  Must have been damn desperate for sex. I mean, you can use your hand & masturbate yourself.

This Japan case happened in 2009. I looked it up because I wanted to see what's the increase in foreigners in Japan since 2009 when I was there & now.  I certainly don't want to go to Japan & see foreign workers everywhere.  What a nightmare.

Brilliant scheme by Jiro Kawasaki, Japan's "former health minister and senior lawmaker of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party". Unfortunately, there are always stupid countrymen who out of their own interests, will want the opposite (pro-foreigners).

I totally agree with the below.  I love it when he says: "I do not think that Japan should ever become a multiethnic society.”. Bravo!!! Aishiteru.

His idea is same as mine. Singaporeans who marry foreigners & their hybrid kids should get out & live outside of Singapore. We don't need halves. U love your husband/wife from another country? Fine, go & live in that country! Don't clutter up our small Singaporean island space here.

In the end, it's all about Money. These foreigners still leave whether they are paid or not. Some already left without getting paid to leave. Others also leave when they see the money. They work in Japan also because they think they can make money in Japan. Why pretend to say it as if Japan used them? They were using Japan.

Japan is so generous to pay to get rid of them.

Japan Pays foreign workers to go Home:

But Mr. Kawasaki said the economic slump was a good opportunity to overhaul Japan’s immigration policy as a whole.

“We should stop letting unskilled laborers into Japan. We should make sure that even the three-K jobs are paid well, and that they are filled by Japanese,” he said. “I do not think that Japan should ever become a multiethnic society.”

He said the United States had been “a failure on the immigration front,” and cited extreme income inequalities between rich Americans and poor immigrants.
That's right. USA has become too shitty because of their slackitude with regards to foreigners. The whole country is in ruins.  Ghettos & shootings. Unemployment. Social problems. Healthcare problems for their own Americans.

Japan is smart to have taken this chance to get rid of their immigrants.

I was worried that Japan was going to allow even more foreigners into the country due to the Olympics contruction projects.

It seems I might have worried unnecessarily. Japan knows how to take care of itself better than Singapore. Most likely, once the foreign workers are no longer needed after the projects, they will be kicked out.  Hopefully.

This is my worry: 

日本、注意してください。 日本に外国人をあまりにも多く入れないでください。 彼らが滞在すると、彼らはあなたの社会と日本の生活様式を台無しにします。 外国人労働者があなたの小さな食堂を満たし、バスや列車を混雑させてほしいですか?シンガポールをフォローしないでください。 シンガポールでは非常に悪い状況になっています。 私は日本が心配です。 外国人を輸入する理由が何であれ、それは価値がありません!日本政府が日本人のお金や仕事を助けるならば、もっと多くの赤ちゃんがいるでしょう。 それでは、もっと多くの外国人労働者の必要はありません。

My New "Kio Kim" Picking Gold (Ingots) Glass Tank Aquascape

Update 4 Mar Sat 2017: Rummy Nose prefers dark soil/substrate.


28 Jan Sat 5:17pm

I call this my "Kio Kim" tank.  Pick Gold Tank.

See the 7 crystal gold ingots along the path? As you walk along my "aquascape" path, there's gold to pick. This is a good fortune tank. Plus water & fish. What could be more perfect for Chinese new year (CNY)?

After so long since last year, I finally bought a crystal clear glass aquascape tank. Not ADA, but these days such tanks with less green (called super clear glass) can be bought cheaply.

Mine is only $38. The price marked as $40, but the discounted price written near it is $38.

2 ft (60cm exactly) x 20cm wide x 27cm high. Perfect. Excellent workmanship. Whoever who did this is very good. Silicon glue no smear & measurements accurate. 0.5cm thickness all around.

Slim & long = less soil + less water = less costly + easier to make design changes.

Previous plastic tank also 2 ft but too wide, too deep = more soil + more water = more money.

The below video was taken on 21 Jan. I got the tank a few days before. At first,  I just filled it with water & put the blue crystal chips on the left side only. Then I introduced the guppies & 1 Rummy Nose for testing.  I was guessing the Rummy Nose might not like it (because it's too open with no hiding places, stressful.).

True enough, the Rummy Nose panicked to see it's own reflection & would only stay on the side covered at the bottom with the blue crystals.  For days, it remained like that, unable to get used to this super clear glass tank.

The initial idea was to avoid laying sand or soil altogether because I'm fed up of soil that disintegrates & becomes dirty with bacteria, worms & parasites. The previous soil substrate was very expensive per bag (Gex brand from Japan) & still disintegrated after 2 years. The bigger the tank, the more soil needs to be laid out.   

So this time, I wanted to keep things soil-less & easy to clean. The substrate will just be crystal chips. Tiger's Eye chips + Blue-veined stone chips (both shipped in by air). Quite cheap $1.80 for 250g per bag (around $3 with shipping).  This tank only needed 2 bags of blue-veined chips & 2 bags of Tiger's Eye chips.

Later when I was buying the small tub of lab-grown Gratiola ($10), I also bought a bag of the white pebbles (only $2).

With the panicking Rummy Nose, I thought covering up the bottom of the tank will be better (look more natural & it can't see its own reflection anymore). 

I only set it up on this date of the video. Took hours to finally set this up.  I got rid of the old, scratched plastic tank after transferring the remainder 10 of the Rummy Noses & 1 guppy here.

There were also 10 baby guppies that I saw in the old tank, but when I transferred a few into this new tank, 2 were eaten by adult guppies & when I collected all of them into a bowl from the old tank & this tank, there were only 8. Oddly, hours later when I checked again, there were only 7 in the bowl.  I kept them in a bowl of water (Tetra AquaSafe added) with some of the short plants you see here (Gratiola) & waited till they grew a little bigger.

You can see the water is murky. I blamed the filter media that was just 2 large cheap stacks for $5 & $3.30 that promised to keep the water clear but didn't.  I have been unable to get JBL filter wool (that I was using) from Pet Lovers that stopped selling at Vivocity.

The transparent filter costs just $7 (Crab Aqua brand) & it's for Nanotank. But I wanted this because it's small, unobtrusive & transparent to go with my glass look.  The filter sponge that was provided: I removed it & put in the filter media I bought that I cut to fit.  Later I tried out the large pores sponge that came with the filter & it was even worse (no filtration at all) than the filter media that I bought.

The best part about this filter is that it's transparent & because it's for Nanotank, the nozzle is small enough to leave alone without a sponge to prevent shrimp & those baby guppies from being sucked in. The sucking power is strong (I can see debris being sucked in) but outflow is soft so the fishes won't be disturbed. It's also silent. Not a well-known brand. 

The lighting is a super slim design that I ordered cheaper (than buying similar design in Singapore) & shipped by air last year. This type of super slim design sells very expensively in Singapore.

I wanted to use it for the old, plastic tank out of desperation for trying to make my red plants grow (unsuccessfully).  Again, the old tank was too deep, requiring strong lighting for red plants. After trying it out once, I kept this lighting set, hoping one day to use it again when I can afford to buy a aquascape-type glass tank.

Note that my camera is poor at taking close-up shots & lighting. By the time I was finished doing up this tank, it was already late evening. 6:15pm.

1 week later... 

Today, here's another video below. I spent hours yesterday (27 Friday) fixing this tank. Yesterday was CNY Eve.

I hurried to Clementi all for the sake of my 1 Rummy Nose that was still very pale after so many days. Had to make the tank look natural with soil so that it would stop being stressed out. My crystal-chips-&-glass only idea wasn't working out. With goldfish, it would work, but not with Rummy Noses.

On 26 Thurs, I saw Polyart selling ANS special soil that can "crystal-clear" the water but didn't buy. So, on 27 Friday, I rushed there to buy it. $5.50 for 1 kg (small bag).

Was worried the fish shops weren't open on CNY Eve but they all were @ Clementi. Was there early at about 12 pm or so. Quite many customers, all Chinese men + 1 Malay man in his mosque outfit buying filter media (clay rings & stone rings).  Surprising to see a Malay man & holding 2 packets of filter media (& thinking).

I've been to this shop so many times & this is the first time I see a Malay person.

Aquarium stuff are expensive. All the small things add up. Not just the fishes. The soil alone can cost above $30 for 1 big bag depending size of your tank. Aquatic plants are also expensive @ $1.50 each for the common type. Hang-on filter alone, cheapest I got from this shop was $7 & it broke down after 1 week. Branded ones are $13.50 & above.

Indian man, I only saw once, dressed in office shirt & pants towards evening (he tiredly lugged back his canister after CO2 refill from the shop, meaning he has money to set up an aquascape tank at home. He looked like a working professional who is tired but has money after a hard day's work at the office.).

I bought 1 thick & quite large shrimp log ($8) that I split into 2 to create the "doorway" look. Shrimp logs can help stabilize pH to a more natural level. As it was quite a thick piece, I used hammer & metal spatula to do it & lastly separated them with my hands (& got cut on my finger doing it).

The 2 large pieces are purposely placed a distance apart so that when you look from the front, they appear to be "together" like on the same level.  Visual illusion technique (hahaha...).  I got the idea from Labyrinth movie. The walls looked like on the same plane but when the camera shifted, it showed that 2 walls were overlapping & there's actually a gap in between that can be walked through.

Also bought my JBL filter wool only $4 (I called on CNY Eve to check & the shop said they had it).

And bought another Tetra fish food ("Energy"). The can of heat-treated blood worms I bought earlier didn't work. The guppies looked at it in my fingers that was holding out 1 worm but bypassed. Guess it's tasteless after being heat-treated & too grossly large. The damn can didn't show how large the worms were. That's a wasted $2.50. Made by a Singapore company. From this experience, it confirms that Ang-Moh products are better even though they cost more. I only buy Tetra brand Germany for fish food. For water, I buy Tetra AquaSafe & Tetra plant nutrients.

The above tank video had problems:

1) Murky water that wouldn't clear up.
2) 1 Rummy Nose was pale for days since being introduced into the above tank. Pale face, pale tail. They are only like this when sleeping. I worried that it might die.

I figured the murky water was because of lousy filter media & lack of soil to absorb the fine floating particles. The soil will also stabilize & adjust the pH to a natural level.

As mentioned above, my camera is poor at taking close-up shots & lighting. The lighting is actually very bright. The crystal chips shine in the light & the water is crystal clear when viewed from the front. Oddly, it's still murky when viewed from the sides.

The transparent filter (Crab Aqua brand) that I liked so much, has spoilt. There goes $7. I had actually preferred a well-known brand filter like Shiruba but none are transparent like this Nanotank one.  Shiruba brand, so far I have experience with 2 filters & the brand is reliable, hard-working & long-lasting, but needs improvement with the design.

After I started adding in the soil, the transparent filter started making odd choking noises. But when I opened & checked, nothing was jammed. The motor still kept being noisy like it had something stuck inside. Bro said the motor box couldn't be opened because once open, it wouldn't be water-tight anymore (risk of electrocution).

As there is a small hole at the rotating propellers, I guessed some soil particle/s might have jammed inside. Bro said it's poor quality motor. Just buy a new one.

Unfortunately, it's CNY already & the shops are closed.  I still have my old filter & it's big & grey-black (Shiruba brand). Temporarily, I'll use it. I avoid using this because it's too big & weighs on the glass side. And anyway, the water is still murky when viewed from the sides even though I have now got the JBL filter wool inside.

See that small plant in front? The spear leaves on the left side? @ 1:23 into the 1st video. That plant cost me $5. Couldn't read the scientific name scribble on the bag when I bought it.  En... something Vietnam. There was a bigger one that wasn't Vietnam, with pinkish base & that cost $25 which I couldn't afford to buy. I think it sold out (I don't recall seeing it there on 27 Fri yesterday when I went back looking for other plants.).

I need to hide the wiring behind the tank but don't know how. The filter.... transparent hang-ons are no brand. Shiruba brand hang-ons are grey-black. Most likely, I will be getting a smaller filter whether Shiruba or another no brand transparent one.

That single Rummy Nose now looking better.  And all the Rummy Noses are red & look fine.

In the first video below, there's a smacking sound. That's the sound of a crazy India man downstairs smacking his cricket bat against a ball that he hooked up to the walking space roof. He did it for 1.5 to 2 hrs.

In the 2nd video, you can hear the calls of the Black-naped Orioles in the treetops outside the balcony.

After getting the stuff from Clementi on CNY Eve 27 Jan, I hurried home at around 1.30-2pm. Spent the rest of the hours doing this tank until around 6pm. These below videos were taken today Sat 28 Jan.

The baby guppies are all inside this tank now. Can't see them anymore. Don't know if alive in hiding or eaten.
