power prices up..
From next month, the price of electricity will be increased by an average of 1.24 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh) — or about 6 per cent — from the current 21.38 cents per kWh. The hike will apply to both businesses, big and small, and households.
- source TODAYonline
In announcing the increased rates yesterday, electricity retailer SP Services said the tariffs are pegged to a higher forward fuel oil price of $96.64 per barrel. For households, the new tariffs will be the highest in at least seven years.
The adjustment, which has been approved by industry regulator Energy Market Authority, is valid from January to March. Electricity tariffs are adjusted every quarter.
One-room HDB flat dwellers are expected to pay between $1.30 and $5.50 more per month, depending on usage.
According to SP Services, a subsidiary of the Singapore Power Group, the average electricity bill for a one-room flat would cost $24.05 in January, up from a current average of $22.75, while the average for a five-room flat would be slightly above $100, up from $95.
Electricity tariffs this year have not always been rising, though. Prices dropped twice in January and April due to fluctuating oil prices.

winlamp has failed me..
i was trying to install apache/php/mysql/phpmyadmin on my office pc @ work today.
usually, i have no problems using winlamp. just run the exe and everything is installed.
but today. today.. i had to download 2 installers.. cos the first installer didn manage to install apache2 properly and the server wouldn't load. So i got the mini version, it will only install on port/socket 90 instead of the usual 80. -.-
so nvm, installed yay, apache works yay! but phpmyadmin refuses to install and work properly!! or maybe i dunno how to install .. but the point is..
winlamp failed me.
p.s. my localhost is still not working. *pout*

cab price update
How will cab fare hikes help? - courtesy of law..
*whisper* i think he is monitoring the cab prices.. cos he will be severely affected.. tsk tsk
A day after ComfortDelGro announced what some say is the biggest overhaul of the fare structure to date, other taxi companies have taken the first step to adjust their meters too.
Smart Taxis, with 800 vehicles, is aligning its new fare structure with that of the market leader. Besides raising meter fares, Smart said it would triple the city area surcharge and impose a 35-per-cent peak period premium to replace the flat surcharge.
Smart, which notified the Public Transport Council (PTC) on Tuesday of its move, said the new fare structure will take effect on Christmas Eve.
SMRT, the second largest company here with 3,000 taxis, also notified the PTC about a fare adjustment. A SMRT spokesperson was tight-lipped about details, only saying that it would release them early next week.
Meanwhile, Premier's managing director Lim Chong Boo said the operator was still considering and would make known its decision soon. New player Prime has said it would not raise fares for three months.

thought for the day..
There were 5 people on a piece of plank, sailing towards a new land, where nothing has been built: a construction worker, a doctor, a scientist, an engineer and any of us reading this blog.
In times of food scarcity while sailing towards the island, I think, we'd be the first to be pushed overboard. Cause we can't build anything from scratch!
When the earth is flattened, we have no use for designers, programmers, hoteliers, teachers, policy makers etc. All we need are construction workers and doctors.
In other words, we are dispensable.
We are useless when the earth is flattened. Who needs button pushers and talkers when we have no roof over our heads!!
WE ARE PESTS TO THE HUMAN RACE! We are second level workers.. or maybe even third level workers! *whisper* i think programmers are more impt than designers.. so programmers are 3rd level and designers are 4th level.
OH DEAR! I think, we need to get new skills..
*sings* cause I believe the world is burning to the ground, Oh well I guess we're gonna find out, Let's see how far we've come

All I Ask of You
here's the lyrics to the song berry is referring to.
Phantom Of The Opera - All I Ask of You
No more talk of darkness,
Forget these wide-eyed fears.
nothing can harm you -
my words will warm and calm you.
Let me be your freedom,
let daylight dry -your tears.
I'm here, with you, beside you,
to guard you and to guide you . . .
Say you love me
every waking moment,
turn my head
with talk of summertime . . .
Say you need me
now and always . . .
promise me that all
you say is true -
that's all I ask of you . . .
Let me be
be your light.
No-one will find you
your fears are
far behind you . . .
All I want
a world with
no more night . . .
always beside me
to hold me
and to hide me . . .
Then say you'll share with
love, one lifetime . . .
Let me lead you
from your solitude . . .
Say you need me
here, beside you . . .
anywhere you go,
let me go too -
that's all I ask
of you . . .
Say you'll share with
love, one lifetime . . .
say the word
and I will follow you . . .
Share each day with me, each
night, each morning . . .
Say you love me . . .
You know I do . . .
Love me -
that's all I ask of you . . .
so sweet right.. *heart melt*

the deco for the ballroom was quite alright, but the red light shone on each table made the food a little hard to stomach, cos u can't tell the color of the food u're eating, plus the maroon table cloth.. like WOAH! super red! the VIPS got blue lights.. like cool la!
