Chuh

I read with disinterest the article in today's paper regarding lawyers, uh, leaving the profession to go in-house or to join foreign firms. Hey, it's not like we're retired you know. We're still gainfully employed. And as lawyers. We're just not working in a local firm. Perhaps I should paraphrase that - we're just not working where they think we should be working, i.e. in a local firm.

What's the difference between a foreign firm and a local firm. It's an office, with people in it, all sitting in front of the computer doing the only thing they know how to do. Pay-wise, it's similar. The hours are quite similar. Why do certain parties make a distinction between a foreign firm and a local firm? Is it more patriotic in a sense to work for a local firm? Are we standing up for Singapore?

The only difference in my view is you are either working for a Singapore boss or you are working for a non-Singaporean boss. How does the nation benefit in a general sense. If we could all freely practise our trade under Singaporean or non-Singaporean bosses, then surely more Singaporeans could potentially benefit, wouldn't they. More prospective employers!

Enough grousing. Went to Waraku again today for lunch and was very amused by the "Waraku Bukkake" item in the menu. I know it's their special dish and all, but does it have any relation to ... never mind. If I order it, are all the waiters going to gather at my table and ... never mind.

I know where all this aggression comes from - it's because the S$10 Waraku voucher I had kept in my wallet for use today turns out to only be usable in their Clarke Quay branch. Goddamn. I'm not yer travelling monkey. Why would a customer of the Marina branch want to go all the way to Clarke Quay to try the same food, when I can get it at Marina?

You know what bukkake is?!

HEY! I know what it is, I work for a Japanese company!

Bukkake means "to splash" or "to dash (some fluid, typically water or substitute)" i.e a rapid pour of fluid that causes it to splash around, get in your eyes, etc...

For example, I might bukkake some Worcestershire sauce over my steak and chips (if I was in Japan, and assuming they had Woostersheer sauce), or I might bukkake some chili sauce over my nachos - extra cheese and quacamole (what whatsername pretended to vomit in "The Exorcist") but I wouldn't want to get that in my eyes as it is purported to sting.

Make sure to make a prominent gokkun after your bukkake.

Is sign of good manner in Japan. Domo arrigato.

hello dear
my toddler is super resistant to having her teeth brushed like yours.

Since every other technique failed, I just hold her down and force it on her. (do it while you can, when you're the bigger, stronger one). I also use an electric toothbrush, hoping that the smaller, rotating head will reach more spots.

The dentist will also give kiddo a fluoride treatment which helps some but brushing is too important to compromise. And we all know as mothers, some things can compromise some things cannot.

The fact that you know what it is, is maybe a telling fact about you. ~grin~

Recently my secretary, a lovely muslim woman asked me what a Dildo was, her son had used the word and she was embarrased to ask her husband...try explaining that with a straight face.
