Justine Tay, not Tey

Tay not TeyIt’s not my fault (pointing fingers to The Sunday Times), they (The Straits Times editors) are the confusing ones….

Hee hee… ok, I’ll cut my crap! I wrote a post about two of my JC friends who had their pictures pastered over the The Sunday Times, because of Mahjong-playing; sadly, I mixed up one of their surnames. (Thanks Edwin for correcting that… – but no thanks as I got someone seeing red)

So, here’s an official apology – but don’t get too angry, afterall you have to understand that all Ah Peks have an issue with memory, not to mention our fingers aren’t that swift to differentiate letters ‘a’ and ‘e’. Being able to switch on the computer is already a challenge!

Ten years ago, I was already an established proclaimed “senior citizen“, enjoying his cup of coffee outside the academy; as I was saying…. my mental capability deteriorates exponential every other seconds; an equivalent of half-life decay. Therefore, ahem… you’ve got accept my reason and excuse me for my poor presentation of that post.

One thing that kept me going, alive and kicking is Mahjong… so where my senility has kicked in, but I am still able to make Thirteen-One and Big-Four.

Sorry about the mix-up, honestly, I feel really bad about it

    Hey, Keith, it’s not really your fault! So, Justine’s only miffed at the newspaper. Anyway, she doesn’t know about this blog, yet.

    I did read a report somewhere that shopping helps more than playing mahjong in reducing the risk of getting (senile) dementia. Maybe you should try more shopping!

    Apart from shopping for electronic or computer stuffs, I would normally snore or doze off at the bench outside the shop, or end up getting lost in the fantasy world of my own.

    Oh, I thought she was kind of angry at me; but I believe she would if she knew about it. How about getting her to seek legal advice and see how much she can get from the publishing company for getting her name wrong.

    Hey, I’m not miffed lah, not really. The less people who know me, the better. I am trying to keep a low profile on this whole mahjong thing.

    Funny thing. The article is titled “Mahjong Magic”, and this foreign colleague of mine who doesn’t know the game kept asking me when I intend to show him some magic tricks. Very hard to keep a straight face when I heard that.

    We must really get together for a game when you are back. ARE you back yet?

    What a surprise, Justine! You managed to find your way here too (must be reference from Edwin)!

    Yes, I am back in Singapore already and have been around for a few months. The thing is, I did some travelling to China and Hong Kong, and even took up a one-month teaching job in China prior to my current job.

    I am ready for a game anytime, but who is likely to be the 4th player? Anyway, please don’t conduct any Mahjong magic that prevents me from winning. *joking*
