Mao Zedong spotted at Orchard Road in full communist attire


These photographs show that Chairman Mao is alive and well and has been spotted smoking at our very own Orchard Road. I wonder what he is doing here. Shopping for some luxury goods?

Sexy CPR lessons for those of who can't be bothered

CPR involves chest compressions at least 5 cm deep and at a rate of at least 100 per minute in an effort to create artificial circulation by manually pumping blood through the heart. It is a vital skill to learn. If you haven't, do watch the above videos (links: here and here) for some inspiration. Another super sexy one here.

Please note that CPR does not bring a person back to life. It does however preserve the body for defibrillation and advanced life support. That means you need to call for an ambulance right away before you do the CPR. For your info, I have successfully completed the CPR and AED Provider Course. Contact me if you need lessons and live demo. Girls only please.
