Shameless plugs

1) If you're female and enjoy a good run, sign up for the Women Make A Difference 5 km run at Fort Canning on Saturday, 26 March. Proceeds benefit Shared Hope International, a non-profit organisation that aids women and children in crisis. Ondine and I are gonna run; any 8 other chicas want to join us?

2) Come by the Atrium @ Orchard next Wednesday, 16 March Saturday, 19 March for the official launch of Mercy Relief's Glimpses of Light photography exhibition. Terz's pics from his Meulaboh trip will be up, together with four other photographers' (Ernest Goh, Darren Soh, Ming and Tay Kay Chin (Kay Chin directed the entire exhibition, but he's not showing his work)) work documenting relief efforts to tsunami-hit areas. We don't know what time the launch will be yet; watch this blog for more details. Update here.

3) Meanwhile, go see a photography exhibition now. Kheng-Li Wee's "On the Silk Road" series is showing at Art Forum at Cairnhill Road. The fact that the photographs are silver gelatin prints made by hand notwithstanding, it's an excellent opportunity to see facets of Silk Road life that are fast passing into history. I can't afford to buy one for myself, but if I could, "Flooded Glade" would be mine.

4) If you own a 12" Powerbook and would like to keep your trackpad clean, buy a Touchpad Savior off me. It's brand-new and $21 (cost price from Apple Centre) --- yeah, I bought the wrong one. That's what comes of skimming and not actually reading the small print.

How come there're always women-only events? No men-only events. So sexist.

If the transaction cost of someone getting that off you is higher than that of going to Apple Centre... you're not going to sell it, heh.

Urgh! My girlfriend and I are looking for mini marathons to take part in this year as "warm up" for the Standard Chartered run (Yes, we are going to do it again!). But Saturday... cannot lei... working... :(

Agagooga --- Yeah, I'm not crazy about the women-only nature of the event, but it sounds like a good run and it's for a good cause. Oh, and I'm trying to sell the stuff for what it cost me, not for anything extra. Brand-new what. Anyway, likelihood very slim...

LMD --- Cannot take the morning off, just this once? :) Come lah!

I'm torn between Flatbed Tricycle and Flaming Mountains.
