I's Off

Have been a bit quiet these days. Am using the slight lull in work flow to get a little bit of quality Son time. Not to mention the second model shoot scheduled for tonight, which I'm hoping will not turn into a second-model-shoot-with-model's-boyfriend-supervising session. How would he feel if our respective spouses, boyfriends and significant others also showed up. After all, the model could be leering at us too, right. We could need protection from all that leering. It's not all a one-way street, baby.

On a completely different topic, it's almost completely impossible to get into our office lobby nowadays without falling over a "Communique" sign. It's a big standing sign from the good people at Suntec management, urging us to look at their COMMUNIQUE which will be sent to us, and which also can be accessed by the internet. That's great. I've expanded my vocabulary whilst bruising my shin.

Just yesterday morning, an additional sign was posted near the entrance to the 6 lifts that serve the higher floors which actually block access to the lift. I doubt the fire safety rules factored into the decision making process about where that sign should go. You actually have to veer off to the side to get around it and into the lift. And what does it say? It's a message to read another message. If I get to the website, will it tell me where to go for the next message?

As dense as I can be, I'm starting to get it. The Communique should just say "GET OUT. DON'T COME BACK TILL THE IMF MEETINGS ARE OVER. OH - DON'T FORGET TO PAY YOUR RENT."

I've been wondering: they can really bear to bar their own long term resident companies during the IMF period, just so that 15,000 delegates can smooch together in safety?

Are we terrorists, or is this just Uniquely Singapore?

It's very hard to say this objectively because I'm so pissed off about it. Maybe Suntec does not take itself seriously enough as a business centre. Because if it did, it would take no less than 5 minutes to realise how ridiculous it is to expect all the offices in Suntec to continue to function normally when the place is shut down and no one can easily come in or go out.

If we didn't need ready access in and out of our offices, we would have set up our office in Pulau Ubin, right?

I think this is just typically people making big plans and not thinking them through. Just for the profit and the international profile.

Someone from HK told me they had exactly the same experience when HK hosted the IMF meetings previously. So it's not Uniquely Singapore - it's just ... inappropriate planning.
