Before heading off on tour with Queen for their European and UK 2017 tour, looks like Adam Lambert had to check off “Halloween Party” off of his checklist once again last night. After all, Glamberts know that he loves Halloween!
So the fact that he’d throw a party wasn’t too much of a shocker. A matter of fact, we’re pretty sure every Glambert was looking forward to what he’d wear this year as a costume, no matter where the event was!

yumm...Adam DOES make a deliciously scarey vampire!

Lam-My said...

Howling wind, flapping curtains undulating up and down the tall stained-glass windows in Glampire's mansion. A lot of booom booom from the sound system...right in the midst of Halloween 2017! Oooh-la-la! Glampire's close-knit Halloween camaraderi...there's a child too!

A hissing sound from the basement cellar... someone or something was woken from its slumber; slithered, poked its head through an ajar oaken door to sneak up on the commotion. Not happy when others were enjoying in revelry, decided to put an end to the party.

All of a sudden, all the lights went out...the child started shouting; but was picked up and calmed. Glampire made a dash for the main switchboard and turned the lights back on.
Awwww... a sigh of relief was heard from the party. Then, Glampire's first concern:

Where is my son!
Everyone started yelling: Zoooki!... Come out! Not time for hide-and-seek...they looked every nook and corner. All too familiar to Glampire, these disappearing acts lately, instantly aroused his suspicion. He made a dash for the fortified mansion front door, jumped onto his black stallion waiting outside and sped away. Wearing full black leather only his vampire fangs gleamed in the full moonlight. He was out with a vengeance; no, not for blood. Actually, he didn't care so much for that; he was an ethical vampire and siphoned blood with his fangs only as a last resort.

Owooooh!...Werewolves howled from the hilltop, his target destination. He knew to his bone who had abducted his precious son! It had all the hallmarks of Dracula's demonic doing; their eternal feud unending and his suspicions were always right.
When Glampire got to the hilltop, he yelled at the top f his lungs, half singing half wailing:

Zoooooki...where are yoooouu ? His powerful oooooo vibrato resounded from the hills to the valley.
Alas! no response from his son. Glampire was really scared now, he knew Dracula was ruthless and merciless.

Kraaaccck ! A giant winged blood-sucker bat perched on the drooping willow tree. Lo and behold! Zoooki was having the ride of his life on the bat's back!

Daddy Daddy! Come get me! The little boy called out to his Daddy.

Hold on tightly Baby!

Glampire aimed his laser weaponry at the bat's wing. He was a sharp-shooter and made sure it would not touch even a hair of Zoooki's, his top priority.
Dracula gave out a cry of fury... whenever he was shot by Glampire's infrared laser.
Arrrrgggh! And instantly shapeshifted back to his human form still clutching Zoooki lovingly in his arms.
You see, Dracula though a vampire, adored kids and would never harm them because he had always longed for one of his own but never succeeded to bear one.
Finally, for fear of getting another dose of that laser at his most vulnerable anatomy, his head...he left Baby Zoooki on the hillslope.

A wind-blown long flowing black silk cloak disappeared into the abyss of the dense demonic forest.
Glampire got down, rushed to get his son, carried him, patted him all over to make sure he wasn't harmed.

Daddy, it was so fun riding on the bat's back, I had a bird's you always sing: Spread your wings and fly away...

Glampire Daddy was so relieved his cute son actually enjoyed the ordeal! and came off unscathed. Soon they were back in their vampire mansion to continue their Halloween party. lwl!


Lam-My said...

I like this 2017 Halloween make-up and fashion; he looks fierce, kind of fits my story too as in...Don't mess with me! lwl!

Lam-My said...

My very first Glampire vs Dracula poem dated Nov 1 2011...with few changes.

Adam the euphoric Glampire
Count Dracula requires a squire
A classy opponent to conspire
You are worthy for the hire
Hope nothing bloody transpires
At his castle quagmire
Glampire starts a-winding
Up the willowy hillroad reclining
Two pristine horses galloping
Trip trot...trip trot...over the bridge
A sinister full moon shimmering
When his gilded carriage rolls in with a swing
Count Dracula is ready for the sting
Werewolves howl at the castle brink
Dracula offers a bloody effervescent drink
Pop-Rock King bursts out and sings
His sonic power sends vampire bats fluttering
Into the twilight
Dracula attacks...lunges his fangs at Glampire's neck
Woe betide...
Glampire fires an infrared into the demon's head
Twists and turns...arrgghh! Shapeshifter drops dead...

My poem : a splurge to purge surged
Now *surge has overtaken *purge, courtesy of coronavirus
As the number of cases spurts…I need to find another word
ไฝ ๅฅฝ ni hao brain, can you find a substitute for *surge
That is now flooding the tv

Brain serves me a curve ball…Covid swells in waves of hell
Knows no bounds, recoils up and down
Nowhere to hide, in the air, on the ground, nooks and corners
The lungs asphyxiate in one’s own fluid
How are we going to subjugate mighty Covid
Our immune system is fast asleep zzzzzzzz…wakie wakie…half a million dead
Health systems, freedoms, economies in schizophrenic dichotomy ๐Ÿฅ€๐Ÿ›Œ

A strange plight so uptight but Covid spurs me to write ๐Ÿคจ✍️๐Ÿ’ป
Young, strong people simply ignore, they want a fight
Because their immune system will rise to the occasion
Have you considered damage to your lung condition…
Older folk better take utmost precaution as our immunity weakens

Time for me to get groceries…ๅ›žๅคด่ง huay toh jian .. see you on return
Girl at the supermarket entrance scans my pioneer card, Beeep !
My face shows up on a small computer screen, records 36.7 C ๐ŸŒก️
A voice says : your temperature is normal…welcome ! ๐Ÿฅฌ๐ŸŒถ️

Wheeling the voluminous amount of foodstuffs in my trolley bag
Across the long and winding overhead bridge, heading home
I’m still averse to taking a taxi; only 8 passengers on a big sanitised bus, less risky
No doubt, paranoia has set in even though only 10 new community cases; migrant workers infection in quarantine dormitories too decreases

We are now in phase 2 opening; wear mask and adhere to 1.5-metre distancing
Our Government leaves no stone unturned, ensuring zero chance of a pervasive Covid re-emergence
3rd phase soon to resume life back to normal as much as permissible
Badly battered economy requires immediate rejuvenation
A convoluted uphill struggle back to the top, where we were dealt a free-fall down down down...

Singapore was born out of a crisis…says PM Lee HL
So here we are all geared up to fight a highly-contagious deadly nemesis
Manufacturing antibodies discovered from recovered patients by Singapore scientists
To block the Covid spike protein from fusing into cell membrane of the lungs and vital organs
A worldwide scientific marathon feverishly working on a vaccine…shall lift us from the ashes of the killing blight of Covid 19 ๐Ÿฆ ๐Ÿ”ฌ๐Ÿ‘จ‍๐Ÿ”ฌ๐Ÿ’‰

A graveyard tale…

Alone in Ghost Town since the passing of his closest friend, Raven… Bert was visiting Raven’s grave. It had been Another Lonely Night, one after another without him by his side.
As he was meditating alone in the dark, sitting on Raven’s tombstone with the inscription My Love Raven, penned by him…he heard a faint whisper :

Hi Bert…don’t be sad, I’m in a more serene place now, no more craves which ultimately drove me to my death.

Startled, Bert looked behind the tombstone as the voice seemed to have come from there. Nothing, and then a dried leaf started moving across the tombstone. It was dark and Bert took out his torch and shone on it. Oh, it was a large red ant, carrying a big dried leaf to build its nest. Bert admired its tenacity, the leaf would be something like a strong muscled man heaving up a car, in comparison.
Bert was feeling tired after driving a long distance alone to the remote graveyard. At that moment, the voice was heard again. Bert looked everywhere around the tombstone; nothing in sight. He looked further into the graveyard…a flickering dim light, like someone with a lit cigarette. The person seemed to beckon to him to come nearer…Bert’s first thoughts : Raven is back !
He got up and got nearer to see if it was indeed Raven; no…he wasn’t there. He got back and sat on the tombstone; then a shadow cast over the words, My Love Raven, that was tearfully inscribed by him when his long-time partner took his last gasp of air; he died of an overdose.

It was his weekly ritual to feel solace and Raven’s love. He walked unsteadily out of the graveyard, looking back to check for any strange sights or sounds. It was dead silence except his footsteps. He got back into his car and drove off.

Bert !…

Startled…the same voice was following him. He parked his car by the roadside and got out; took in some fresh air to calm his nerves. Swiish…a dark mass whisked across the road, almost hit by an oncoming vehicle. And then a shadow of a person glided across the trees lining the road. It seemed to be wearing a big hat with two long quills, had a white beard and two long plaits. As another passing vehicle’s headlights shone at it, the figure appeared to be waving at him ! Bert wiped his eyes and looked again. Yes, it was still there. He waved back, being the responsive loving person he is. The supposed ghost disappeared and never accosted Bert again. Was that Raven trying to console him…Bert cried, as he did love Raven a great deal but he finally thought it was time to let go…

Ooooh-la-la Pharaoh basking, haw haw…I like the luxuriant purple efflorescence of this tree. I recall writing about it the first time I saw it in Adam’s Garden of Eden.

ไฝ ๅฅฝ ni hao Pharaoh sphinx…you look so blissful amid a worldwide pandemic.

It’s a long long story, Pharaoh, you just continue giving your special love to your Daddy and all your caring uncles, oh, me as well ! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ•

Why are you always twitching your ears?

I hear little strange sounds which you can’t hear.

Has Serpentine paid you a visit?


Who is that?

Me again, Serpentine….

What do you want from me?

No, not you, I brought a juicy red apple for your Daddy Adam, owner of Garden of Eden. He is a very talented person, that’s why millions of Fans love him. But this time round, he has gotten more careful, don’t think he’ll take my juicy red apple; it got him banished from his Garden of Eden. But now he owns one, not bad, pssss…pssss…see you in worse times to come…

Away from me ! Serpentine before I trample you to pieces !

Really ? Try ! You won’t win, I got lots of tricks up my sleeves, oooops, mouth, from which I spew temptations that you can’t resist; want a juicy bone ?

No, not from you Serpentine…I don’t buy into your sleaze…Owooooh! Okay, maybe I’ll just give it a lick to get a bit of the taste.

Have a nice meal, if you need more, you can always count on me, Pharaohdoggo…love your beautiful fur in the sunshine…๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ๐Ÿก

I wrote stories and dialogues on Praying-mantis and lo and behold Adam came up with this Praying-mantis Snapchat, which suddenly dropped into my archives : 2017

Adam’s voice :

Helloo let me in…helloo zhiiiiii…

Who is that?

Me, praying-mantis, you know, Lam-My’s favourite insect friend.

What do you want from me?

Well, I’ve come to deliver a message from my colony.

What colony?

It’s very close-by your home on the hill…I always ogle at you as you run with your dog; what’s its name er…just at the tip of my tongue…ya, Pharaoh. Hey, I like you a lot, you’re such a gentleman but Pharaoh, not so much. He killed my friend Greg! So sad, I pined for Greg a long time. He was always there for me and I love his haunting song day and night.

Awww, really sorry about that; actually Pharaoh is a very well-behaved dog; I think he was in a bad mood.

It’s okay, I found a new Cricket to be my soulmate; she sings like crazy vibrating and twirling her wings.

So what’s the message?

Well, our queen has laid a whole new batch of eggs which just hatched and we are throwing a big party. We, her loyal underlings are going all out to invite as many guests as possible. Straight away, I thought of you because I’ve heard you sing ‘Find me somebody tooooo loove ! and my queen would certainly love that, now that she has to mate again…zhiiiiiii !

Okay, I’ll come! Can I bring a date?

Sure! except Pharaoh.

But he’ll be all alone at home and I never leave him all by himself. I take him wherever I go.

Reluctantly :
Oookay then; just make sure he doesn’t kill any of my friends. He seems quite adverse to mantises. Come, follow me…

Pharaoh, we’ve been invited to a praying-mantis party.

Praying-mantis ! Owoooh ! Isn’t it the one that hides and irritates me, in the bush?

And so Pharaoh followed his Daddy with Praying-mantis leading the way to its colony; Mantis praying all the time. Pharaoh was well-behaved and didn’t kill anyone. Praying-mantis’ prayers were answered.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * After the party :

So what happened at the praying-mantis party? Did the stoic one give any trouble?

Oh no, the stoic one was in tip-top behaviour but I had to stop his urges when he grrrrrrrr at those myriad tiny cute mantises hatching from their cocoons. I like their triangular faces, alert big eyes. And those legs when outstretched are twice the length of its body.

Where was the mantis colony?

You have seen the place before…the one where Pharaoh stopped to examine the bush and grrrrrrrr on Runyon hill, close-by my home. ๐Ÿฆ—๐Ÿ•๐Ÿšถ‍♂️

You must be living in your new residence now…bet it’s humongous; well, you’ll probably let us in a bit later; actually, Adam, you can take your time, your safety comes first; times are changing, hanging in the balance.

In contrast, Adam Lambert’s Garden of Eden flaming in an Overglow blissful and calm…

That overglow
Where the moment goes
Leave me all alone
But you would never know
It’s got a hold on you ~ Adam Lambert

Where are you Pharaoh…
Snugged up with my Daddy…usually, there are a lot of people making a lot of noise
But it’s very peaceful every night…don’t know where all the people go Owooooh…
Pharaoh, you won’t be able to call them even if you howl…
But Daddy can put on a show in his Garden of Eden using himself as the main prop
And we can see and hear him so clear booom booom booom on with the show ! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜‹


It’s easy to get Pharaoh, my internet dog…I just say, Pharaoh, where are you?…and lo and behold he appears; not by fluke, many times already…๐Ÿคฃ

Hey Pharaoh, you are so alert ! What made you turn so abruptly…

ๆ—ฉไธŠๅฅฝ jow sarng hao Lam-My, good morning my internet aunty…๐Ÿ• I heard a strange sound; well Daddy is driving his dashing open-top so I can pick up even the wind with my antenna ears. Maybe Daddy is making those chit-chit sound to attract my attention.

You are looking so healthy; at this point in time, health is of utmost importance, or fall prey to dear friend mighty Covid.

Who is Covid?

Aya ya ya it’s better you not know, you should be able to kill it dead; it’s not interested in dogs, it loves humans because they have no clue how to exterminate it, and even if they do, it mutates; the whole debacle wreaks havoc.

Hey Pharaoh, I notice Daddy put a safety leash on you so you can’t stand up on the dashboard or put your head out of the car

Yeah, then I can feel things simply whizz past…oscillating in orbit !

You haven’t been to your favourite haunt, Runyon Canyon to run run run…

No, Daddy feels it’s not so safe, like you just explained. I’m okay but he needs to take extra precaution of his God-given resonance chamber.

Wah ! Pharaoh, that’s deep; no wonder you say you’re a big boy now and can fend for yourself.

Not only fend for myself, I have to take care of my Daddy, at times, he gets real lonely and I’m there to give him love always…it’s a win win you know, I get my munchy marrow on a silver platter…Owoooh! ๐Ÿก๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ•

Lam-My ~ 4 Aug 2020


Wah ! Pharaoh, you might have beaten your Daddy in handsomeness haw haw ! maybe by just 0.001 point. Your flare-out antenna ears and big round eyes seal the deal.

่ฐข่ฐข sair sair internet aunty from the opposite side of the world. My Daddy is very handsome and talented and takes extremely good care of me. Looove him owoooh!

How do you know your Daddy is handsome and talented?

I love his face and smell, and his voice chut chut, means he’s got something for me to explore; that’s why you say I’m alert, I’m trained owoooh ! My favourite is run run run on the canyon and you ask where am I going…nowhere but so free, can run where I like, I know Runyon like the back of my hand er paw; lately not so much, we stay at home. ๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ•

I found one of my Bert and Saul stories posted into my archive…it’s about survival, putting one’s life on the line for another, getting through a crisis; well, it bears vestiges of present world dilemma.

Bert and Saul were trekking in a vast desert; they had ventured out on their own leaving the group at Burning Man. Half way through, a blizzard hit them and visibility was down to barely 5 metres. They tried getting back, instead they went deeper and deeper into the desert.
Night fell and the cold set in, a direct contrast to the heat in the day. They huddled together beside a dry twiggy bush; the wind was howling like an oncoming freight train…pretty scary even for two adventurous guys.
Soon the much-awaited dawn arrived in the early hours; what a relief and the blizzard had subsided. They continued trekking hoping to reach a place with water as they had consumed every drop in their water-bottles.

Ssss-ssss … what’s that? A snake! Saul the more hands-on person who always helped his Dad to spruce up the garden, knew it was nothing like those he had seen. His protective instinct kicked in…confronted the serpent head-on to try to lure it away from Bert, its venom could kill him. Sure enough, the black-yellow-banded snake moved away from its original target and spewed its venom in Saul’s direction. Whoa ! it missed by inches ! and what a spectacular splash it was, fast and furious. Saul reflexively dodged it. It retreated into the twiggy bush.
Bert was so impressed by the way Saul handled a life-threatening situation and taking the direct line of fire/danger in order to protect him. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for another. They hugged and kissed in the beautiful Aquarius dawn, and moved on in search of water.

Then, Bert spotted a shiny pool in the distance and elatedly directed Saul’s attention to it. They ran towards it hoping to get a drink. But it retreated as if playing catch-me-if-you-can…They never seemed to be able to reach the pool gleaming in front of them. Their mouths were dry and thought about the Lipton Tea song: Lay me down in darkness…Tell me what you see…
Well, after many hours of trudging, they saw another pool of water in the distance, they were not so keen to rush to it this time; in any case they could barely walk.
But this mirage approached them ! Whoa ! It lifted their spirits. Bert shouted for help…Ohhhhh ahoyyyy ! his voice echoed in desperation. It’s a real mirage ! their Burning Man campers had been searching for them; rushed to their rescue ! oooh-la-la…all got back to camp safely. ๐ŸŒต...๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿšถ‍♂️

I chanced upon my weird dialogue story…picture of King in Red Coat commanding his court jester to amuse him…

@QueenWillRock @DrBrianMay @JulienMacdonald – Rhapsody Tour 2019

Court jester! If music be the food of love, play on!

Yes, your Majesty, whatever you say, your word is my command!

What are you playing Court jester? I don’t recognise the music. Play something current.

Bring it back…bring it back…cuz you don’t know what it means to me…

Hmmm…that’s Lovely!

Can you play Comin In Hot ?

Twang twang twang Comin in hot…Comin in hot…

Is that all?

That’s all I know your Majesty!

Guards ! Send him to the gallows…Useless!

Give me a another chance, I’m working on it…whiiooo whiiooo! doong doong doong chang…

That sounds like a Rock odyssey, all right, your life is spared by the hair on my chinny chin chin!

(Court jester leaves mumbling) : He who knows not he knows not is a fool!

What are you mumbling? You ingrate! I just spared your life!

(Bows, retreats)…Yes, yes! Almighty King of Ethereal! haw haw…(softly)

Are you still sneering? Court jester!

Er Er no…something got caught in my throat; I’ve come of age.

Guards! Send him to the gallows anyway!

(Cries) ‘Let me go…let me go…I’m just a poor boy…nobody loves me…spare me from this monstrosity…’

An eye for an eye…

One cool autumn day, Bert and his beloved dog Pharaoh were hiking in the woods… all of a sudden rain started to pour. They were soon drenched and Pharaoh kept shaking out the water from its drenched fur. Bert picked him up and started running for shelter. Thank goodness, they spotted a hut and beelined towards it. Bert knocked on the door but no one came; he then gave it a push, it creaked open; it was a deserted hut, maybe the owners had left.
Pharaoh seemed attracted to a barn next to the hut. He started scratching at the door trying to get into the barn. Bert peeked in but there was nothing except for a pile of straw; hold on a minute…a rather surreptitious wooden cover sticking out under the straw. Bert got nearer and Pharaoh kept sniffing and scratching at it.
At this moment, squeaky noises were heard from within, Bert lifted the cover…nothing, except for an entanglement of cobwebs and a rustic smell.
Pharaoh jumped in, it seemed to sense something…then without warning…zooom ! down down down it fell right through the opening. Bert called out frantically; he was not able to get inside as it was too small. He squeezed himself in, one leg at a time, yelling, Pharaaooh… ! It always kept very close to its Daddy and wouldn’t disappear like that. Bert finally managed to squeeze his whole body in…

Pitch-dark, Bert switched on his torch…whaz ziz zhis ? An underground cavern, stalagmites and stalactites glimmered in the dim light.
Buddy ! Where are you ? No signs of his beloved doggo.

As he was groping in the dark to avoid the hanging stalactites, he heard some squeaky voices and saw faintly a number of silhouettes lurking; he directed his torch at the silhouettes…Whoa ! they did not appear human, with big dark eye sockets, no eyeballs; they were holding Pharaoh ! Bert was getting really scared now…what was he dealing with ? At this moment Pharaoh sensed his Daddy’s presence, immediately leapt from the alien’s grip and scampered onto his Daddy’s outstretched arms.

Meantime, the aliens left by the back door…they were not aggressive and a strange droning sound accelerated outside. Bert held Pharaoh tightly, peeped through the ajar back-door. He couldn’t believe his eyes…a flying drone sent out brilliant sparks and zoomed above the clouds like a shooting star…it soon disappeared.

Where did they come from and what do they want ? Maybe they were trying to kidnap Pharaoh for their alien experimentation; aliens living amongst us ? All kinds of probabilities crept into Bert’s mind.
He decided to explore this strange place…got out into the backyard with Pharaoh eagerly tripping by his side; actually hardly a yard; it was a large expanse of wasteland with a maze of reddish clay paths, no trees nor shrubs. Where is this ? Never been here before, yet so close to my home…the reddish clay reminded Bert of Mars.

Hellooo ! We come in peace ! Bert jumped with a start ! What ! I thought they had left. More aliens appeared ! Their dark eye-sockets no eyeballs stared at Bert, talking in nasal squeaky voices.

Pharaoh ! Run ! Run !
The place seemed so unrecognisable with twists and turns of clay tracks, a complete contrast from the woods they hiked in.

The aliens came closer : Hellooo ! Wait ! We are not here to scare you !

Who are you ? Bert clutching Pharaoh, in case they snatched him.

We are Martians ! We have lived here in prehistoric times and return occasionally to monitor its progress, we understand your language. Very glad to meet you and your beautiful smart doggo. We need a favour…would you let us examine your intriguing dog. See, we do not have 4-legged aliens, let alone with luminous eyeballs that sparkle in the dark. We want to replicate such beautiful new eyes ! ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ’ซ

Bert was stunned in disbelief but he was always very liberal and tolerant of unusual happenings. He agreed to let them examine Pharaoh. Without wasting a moment they held Pharaoh and stroked him lovingly, gazing hard at its alert basenji eyeballs, perhaps started programming them. Pharaoh had a closeup view, didn’t sense fear and peered into their dark hollow eye-sockets; literally open windows to their brain; Pharaoh seemed able to connect with them. They could be blind, thought Bert and use their sensors to see / detect their surroundings; that may be the reason they got so attracted to Pharaoh’s eyeballs that illuminate in the dark, to them like twinkling stars…on four legs ! ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ’ซ

A month passed and Bert was ruminating on those Martians whom he just couldn’t let go in his mind; it was obsessing him; he decided to put it to rest once and for all. He with Pharaoh tripping by his side, got to the woods where they had their first extraterrestrial encounter. Got to the hut which looked like any other home, but deserted and rundown. Walked in by pushing open the unlocked door and as Bert was about to lift the wooden door-cover to get into the cavern, he saw something that shook him to the core. Two Pharaohs ! with alert identical basenji eyes !

Pharaoh ! he gasped not able to tell which one was Pharaoh. One of them jumped onto Bert’s lap as it always did. The other stared but did not react.

Hellooo ! Earth friend ! Good to see you again. Do you like my Pharaoh clone ? Bert was shaken by this unexpected turn of events.
Its name is Phaidor.

Phaidor ! Bert blurted out !

Phaidor immediately responded…wagged its tail elatedly on hearing its name…a different tone by a human. And jumped onto Bert’s lap, wah ! gave Bert a dry debut face lick exactly like what Pharaoh did whenever he missed his Daddy after a long absence; the only difference, Pharaoh’s was moist and slurpy. Bert was overwhelmed beyond words.

If you actually detected my hidden inference, I say you are sharp like I’ve always said.

Covid chimes a deadly dirge ๐Ÿ””
People on the verge
In an urgent search for
Food, money, cures, jobs, security
A fatalistic potpourri of anxieties

Vaccines are close at hand, December
But for the majority, the elderly, the chronic sick
May not be vaccinated till next May
It’s better to stay safe…wear a mask, reduce close contact
Avoid large gatherings…keep a safe distance 1.5 metres
Actually it’s easier said done…I’m guilty of that

Two days ago, my temperature recorded 36.8 C at the supermart entrance
Your temperature is normal, welcome…
Says a voice on the thermal screen with my masked face
Merrily shopping, mingling, social distancing out the window
A cute little Indian boy on a stroller was screaming his head off ๐Ÿ‘ฆ
My motherly instinct kicked in and went closer to comfort him
He eventually stopped crying when I pointed to his bruised knee

On my way home, however, crossing a winding overhead bridge
I remove the mask whenever there’s nobody
To replenish oxygen as the mask does hinder breathing
That’s a health hazard, but compared with being hooked on a respirator
Mind over matter…devil and the deep blue sea

We are at phase 3, cautiously, we sort of made it
To see the dazzling light at the end of the tunnel
Crushing Covid by its head…zero local transmission
For 14 days, exactly 2 weeks…its incubation
Now the economic spill-over…many businesses collapse to a point of no return
Government subsidises with handouts amounting $100 billion
Matching, training, adapting job seekers to new companies
Contributes $100 million to global assistance ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿฅฃ

Last night the brilliant full moon was shining on my window-sill…wah ! felt the glow of the halo and I gazed at it right above my window, knowing Chang’e 5 is orbiting, braking, about to land !…very very close now, 200 km above the moon.
ๆญๅ–œๅ•ฆ goong si la ! Congratulations !


The Chang’e-5 probe successfully landed on the near side of the moon, the China National Space Administration (CNSA) announced on Tuesday.

With the space probe’s ascender on top, its lander made a touchdown at around 11:00 p.m. (Beijing Time), becoming China’s third probe that has successfully made a soft landing on the moon. It has sent back footage of the moment it landed.

In the next two days, the lander will collect about two kilograms of lunar samples.

The Chang’e-5 probe includes a lander, ascender, orbiter, and returner. After the spacecraft entered the circular lunar orbit 200 kilometers above the moon, the lander-and-ascender pair split, descended, and landed at the planned area on the moon.

The lander will shovel some surface material and also drill a two-meter-deep hole and scoop up the soil from inside it, which will act like an archive of the moon, with the bottom recording information from a billion years ago and the top more closely reflecting the present day.

The samples will then be stored in the ascender, which will lift off from the lunar surface to transfer the moon samples to the returner and orbiter waiting in the lunar orbit. The unmanned rendezvous and docking in the lunar orbit will also be the first such task conducted by China.

Then, at a proper time, the returner will separate from the orbiter and carry the samples back to Earth, which will finally land in North China’s Inner Mongolia.

Footage of the landing moment sent back by Chang’e-5 ( gif ) 1 Dec 2020

Last night I saw the 2nd night of full moon, so huge and round lighting up the spreading old tree and field outside my window-sill. I could see the dark patches on the moon so clearly wondering if Chang’e 5 had landed.

Covid-19 one year on...

People are getting restless and desperate
For some tete-a-tete escapade
On the beach, at the mall, family reunion
A leap of faith, a free fall at your own risk

Doctors, nurses, health-workers, covered head to toe in protective gear
Walk resolutely into Covid infected wards, the direct line of fire !
What better friend than one who lays down their life for another
To bid a final goodbye, holding their trembling hand as they gasp their last ๐Ÿ›Œ
No family, no friend by their side ๐Ÿ‘จ‍๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿ‘ง‍๐Ÿ‘ฆ
Virologists, scientists, doctors tirelessly work on a vaccine
Yes finally ! a life-saver Vaccine shines a ray of light on our destiny ๐Ÿ’‰

The jingle ‘Singapore Airlines is a great way to fly’ that I grew up with
Echoes its knell in silence on the tarmac...vigilantly slowly opening
Huge warehouses, expo halls, a Changi Airport vacant plot
Turned into Covid facilities for treatment, testing, tracing, isolating
Ahh, a silver-lining in Golden butterfly Joseph Schooling
His winning time 50.39s remains standing till 2021 Tokyo Olympics
Let's rally behind him for another herculean fly flick kick ๐ŸŠ‍♂️

Mighty Covid pretty much dictates…
Decrees wearing mask, staying 6 feet / 2 metres apart
Invisible yet so powerful
Humans forced to rethink, reinvent, recuperate
Corporate carnage

Will we ever annihilate Covid completely
Not really, only temporarily, a fatalistic reprieve
Once it mutates, wreaks havoc again
It’s natural selection, survival of the fittest
So what are we left with…
Be that as it may, united we stand, divided we fall
Work together, keep a lid on Covid
21st century apocalypse ! a turning point of no limit ๐ŸŒช️

Back to the drawing board, reignite the entrepreneurial spirit
A never-seen-before unknown hangs precarious
Coronavirus spikes fuse into human cells, replicate, suffocate
Our defenceless immune system that can’t recognise it
Millions infected, thousands dead…who will lift us out of this masquerade ? ๐Ÿ˜ท

Did you say masquerade ?
But Covid is not a charade, in fact it's real as hell !
So why did the word jump out of my head
Impromptu, took me by surprise
I rationalise...the mandatory mask we wear
Liken to a motley masquerade party ๐ŸŽญ
More dangerously, Covid too is masquerading
Corona / crown , spikes / thorns...Crown of thorns reminds me of Jesus
Latest: 70 million cases, 1.59 million person dies every 30 seconds...๐Ÿ•ฐ️

I just heard Dr Reiner on CNN Don Lemon show, saying *carnage inflicted by Covid taking such a heavy toll, just today alone in the US, 3000 deaths, numbers have been high for quite some time. Don Lemon reports, showing figures, it’s more than 9/11. He also said he can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Earlier on, Anderson Cooper said they are in a very dark tunnel, how long the tunnel is, they don’t know but hoping for a welcome light; a double whammy Covid and Election fallout.

*Corporate carnage above, used by Adam Bakhtiar CNA.

The origin of *carnage is my description of 49 gays massacred (2016) which in fact was my first word but *carnage jumped out because it was so bloody and lustful.
This word doesn’t seem to go away even after 5 years and each time the *carnage increasingly devastating. ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿ˜ท

Many doctors and the media have voiced their deep concern on Covid getting out of control but they are optimistic, and I think they like the Mediacorp song...*light at the end of the tunnel...

15 Dec 2020
So touched by a health worker who got the vaccine; she says she faces Covid patients every minute of the day. I think it’s more than just a vaccine to her, it’s her lifeline; she cried.

A doctor in Iowa wanted to show the vaccine is safe, got vaccinated, shown on tv and said he felt fine after 12 hours, just a bit of soreness on the shoulder above the upper arm. Smiled and said there is *light at the end of the tunnel on CNN with Robyn Curnow who said *The Light.

Dr Gianfranco Pezzino explains so graphically : The Light is the Vaccine but cautions that we are still groping in the dark tunnel; but there is light at the end of the tunnel.
He has resigned as Health Officer of Kansas due to strong opposition against his orders to implement restrictions to reduce Covid infections, save lives.

Dr Esther Choo Professor & Emergency Physician : We say *light at the end of the tunnel but the tunnel is incredibly long, she says.

I say we are speeding through the convoluted tunnel on a toot-toot turbo train ! ๐Ÿš

Dr Wen and Dr Choo … my Chinese kin. ๐Ÿ˜

14 Dec 2020
Sandra Lindsay, ICU nurse NY, first person to get the Pfizer vaccine; she says: This is the *light at the end of the tunnel but we are not out of the woods yet.
Well, I finally get to see the face, hear the voice of a healthcare worker that I admire so much, in my poems (above).

Dr Leana Wen also says she sees *light at the end of the tunnel and we will get through the tunnel together.

Sara Sidner says there is *light in this very dark tunnel, as she reports on site, refrigerated trucks -71 C transport Pfizer vaccines to Michigan.

12 Dec 2020
CNN Fred Pleitgen, German journalist says the authorisation of Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine by US FDA is *herculean; he was interviewing CEO of BioNTech – Germany.

I recall General Perna, head of Operation Warp Speed saying : a vaccine by end of this year is *herculean...vaccine scientists / doctors have succeeded ! Covid herculean heroes !

Well, my *herculean, Joseph Schooling is going to fight other *herculean Champs come 2021 Olympics. In any case, Joseph has already gone down into Gold Olympics history.

Dr Reiner on CNN laments *carnage, the high death toll in the US and Adam Bakhtiar CNA describes businesses inflicted as corporate *carnage.

My original use of *carnage *herculean *purge, have reached 1st 2nd 3rd respectively in my word-marathon, 2017 - 2020.
Well, it culminates with a big bang in a double C...Covid Carnage.

Moon flags off 21st century with a big bang booom !
Now, that brings me back to the eclipse tango of sun moon
That I witnessed live from my balcony 26 Dec 2019 noon
Gravitational attraction, a dance in the heavens
Moon says : Watch me ! I’m hitting the limelight
Not only blocking mighty sun, my tango partner-in-crime
Earthlings are obsessed with digging up my billions-year-old treasures
In a fast and furious Chang’e 5 exploration and retrieval
The Return capsule just brought back 1,731 grams of moon soil / rocks
Flying through space…a perfect touch-down in the snow of Inner Mongolia / China
For dissection and sharing with the world our ancient volcanic evolution ๐ŸŒ‹
Okay, I see now as I saw the moon-sun eclipse phenomenon
That brought me to tears from the heavens

On the flip-side, Covid had already slipped in by then, without warning
One year on, it has infected 79 million, killed 1.7 million…
Ah, brilliant scientists / doctors say in no uncertainty
Not so fast Covid ! We are hot on your heels ! Vaccine is ready to rock-and-roll around the world !

Overwhelmed by the Solar eclipse 2019, I had suspected something very dramatic would happen
A great deal more than I had expected
Before 2020 takes its curtain-call from this convoluted year of controversy and Covid ! ๐Ÿ›Œ๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿ˜ท

21 Dec 2020
First batch, Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines arrive at Changi Airport; flown in from Brussels, Belgium, stored at -70*C in refrigerated facility in Singapore.

As pointed out by eminent Doctors, the *Light at the end of the tunnel is the Vaccine ! So looks like the Mediacorp Singers’ aspiration has come to fruition, delivered by a jumbo jet at Changi Airport, in talks to be the vaccine distribution centre for the region.

*Carnage has indeed come a long long way from my original use of the massacre of 49 gay people 2016. This time round it jumped by leaps and bounds; with a double C… Covid Carnage, in human deaths as well as businesses.

It’s indeed a *herculean achievement by Scientists / Doctors to come up with a Covid Vaccine within a year; estimated earlier-on as too short a time for such a monumental creation. China Scientists’ mapping out the Covid 19 genome sequence, I think has speeded up the Covid 19 vaccine development.

*carnage *herculean *purge have emerged as winners in my word-marathon 2016-2020…picked up over and over again on internet. ๐Ÿฅฐ Much appreciated ! Wonder if my word-marathon would carry through into 2021. I feel the skies are opening up but still a lot of dark clouds hang ready to burst without warning.

Waah ! Chang'e 5 return-capsule streaks through the night sky bringing its priceless cargo of moon soil / rocks home to Beijing. Many helicopters and vehicles spread out to search the huge wide snow-covered grasslands of Inner Mongolia / China. Yes ! they found their return-capsule intact nicely landed in the snow. They were awed ! Billions-year-old moon soil / rocks that actually flew from outer-space into their backyard !

I tried to follow the convoluted procedures of docking and undocking of the 4 components of Chang'e 5 orbiter, lander, ascender, returner. Goodness me ! my brain got all entangled; so many times they join and separate and join again and separate. This one is dramatic, after the ascender carrying the moon soil/rocks blasted off from the lander on the moon, to dock with the orbiter circling the moon, unloaded its moon collections, to be stored in the return-capsule, was commanded by Beijing control to smash into the moon so as not to leave any space junk floating around that may hinder future explorations, their next probes Chang'e 6,7,8.
The final separation was between the return-capsule and orbiter, 5,000 km above earth, before touching down in Inner Mongolia / China.

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong rolled up his sleeve for the Covid-19 vaccine injection yesterday, as the nationwide vaccination effort to combat the coronavirus swung into high gear.
A left-hander, PM Lee was administered the shot in his right arm by nurse Fatimah Mohd Shah, and experienced no side effects despite a 30-minute precautionary wait.

“It is painless, it is effective and it is important,” he told reporters at Singapore General Hospital (SGH), where he received his first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, the only one to be approved here so far.

This is one of my favourite songs since the beginning, his first album…his vibrato is shimmering ♒ A Loaded Smile…We are barely hanging on…

Adam switches from high alto/falsetto to high tenor, wah! He’s wearing the 3rd Eye of the Mind; very important to be able to see and feel with one’s 3rd Eye because it comes out different in greater depth, height, a much wider expanse.

Overglow ~ Roses ~ Adam Lambert

Pharaoh! Haw haw viewing the world upside down; you must be a little bored, not able to go run your endless canyon road. I notice you feel liberated when you run, like trying to get to a destination. Now, you look like a flying-fox hanging upside-down, your big round eyes and antenna ears.

Hi internet aunty! You bet I’m longing to go pound the canyon; so free and I can feel the wind as my feet beat the Runyon track.

Do you know the way well ?

Sure I do, especially the familiar spots where I pee to mark the route; but now I may have lost those spots, washed off by the rain but I can still find them; a dog’s sense of smell is formidable.

Wah! you can remember big words; exceptional memory as well.

Trained sniffer dogs can smell out people with Covid ! by sniffing their mask, clothing, belongings, body, if they are carriers of the virus with no symptoms yet. ‘It has been estimated that a dog’s sense of smell is 100,000 times more powerful than a human’s.’

What are you doing at the sign-post ?

You can see what I’m doing.

Okay, rephrase… why do you do this at certain spots when you are hiking ?

Marking my territory, to show other dogs nearby that it belongs to me.

Are there other dogs around ?

Yes, I like them and run up to smell them out. I have 3 close doggie pals; Jelly, Hazel, Oliver.

Kungflu vs Kungfu
One is invisible, the other invincible
Kungflu hit the world in Dec 2019
Same time as the solar eclipse unravelling in the sky
That I watched live happening above my balcony
So profound, tears welled up in my eyes
No inkling whatsoever its catastrophic symbolism
Spread like wildfire out of control
No, not the solar eclipse, the other just as wild
Engulfing the whole world
Worldwide Updated : 134 million confirmed cases, 2.9 million deaths

Kungfu on the other-hand dates back 1500 years China

Two amicable Covid volunteers came a-calling
My front door was open
Do you want to have vaccination? they asked politely
I hesitated a bit and said yes
They asked when I would like to have it
Being a little jittery, I asked for a week or two interim
Handed over my IC and they took down the details
Gave me an appointment at the nearby polyclinic
28 April 2021 which added up to a perfect 10
19 May 2021, second jab 3 weeks later
1 million Singaporeans have already been fully vaccinated
Wanted to know Pfizer or Moderna
The nice lady said I will know at the vaccination
Through the course of our conversation, found out
Yung Shern the nice young man got his Politics Degree from U of Toronto
To which I responded…you’re aspiring to be prime minister ๐Ÿ˜Š
I reciprocated: my daughter got her English Hon Degree from the same U

Jesus Resurrection.
Bible history has it that when Mary Magdalene went to the tomb, she saw the large boulder rolled back and Jesus’ body they buried on Good Friday, after Jesus’ Crucifixion, was not there.
Skeptics say, it may have been stolen or taken away, but the huge boulder at the tomb entrance and followers praying outside would have raised alarm; as it stands, no such incident had been recorded. This is the cornerstone of Christianity.
All right even if you think it’s just a story, okay. The significance of death and rising up again is what life is about; a simplified analogy : plants die but their seeds rise from the ground; life goes on. Just like we are in the midst of a deadly pandemic, but we know we will rise from this catastrophe stronger and wiser. Happy Easter !

Came across this rather relatable comment I made, when Adam was in Shanghai on a Talk Show.

Aha, Adam seems to have learnt the correct way of holding the chopsticks; this is the only way that allows the chopsticks to be mobilised without them getting entwined. It’s a kind of lever system with one chopstick supported and the other movable, up and down for picking even one grain of rice.
For more sinister use, a kungfu sifu / master can kill with a pointed pair of chopsticks which can be used to jab at the enemy using internal kungfu force. It was practised in ancient times and that skill may still be in existence.

Now, there’s some rumour-mongering circulating about *kungflu; well, I’ve news for the creative initiator using kungflu as a weapon; no not those kungfu killer-chopsticks mentioned above. Kungflu and Kungfu have something in common, they kill without you knowing what killed you because it happens when you least expect it and you are gone for good; extremely lethal ! ๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿฅข

Chopsticks story…

Bert was driving through a lonely road on his way to meet a long-time friend whom he had not seen for many moons…wonder what he looks like now…reminisced Bert, stroking Pharaoh leaning against his arm. Suddenly…eeeeeeeek ! Bert jammed on his brakes as a car was speeding, overtaking him on the narrow road. Whoa! That was a close shave, Pharaoh howled Owooooo! Then a loud Bang ! He got out of the car holding Pharaoh tightly and ran to the spot where the loud Bang was emitted. Dead silence; what happened?

He got back to his car and went on his way to meet his one-time confidante. When he reached the address given to him by his friend, Bartholomew (Bart), he rang the doorbell. An elderly lady opened the door and asked what Bert wanted.

‘I’ve come to pay a visit to Bartholomew,’ he gave me this address on the phone. The lady looked perplexed and stammered…with tears in her eyes.
‘Bart died in a car crash last year; he was a daredevil F1 racer, won many trophies; alas, all it takes is just one fatalistic time; his car spun into the air as he turned the corner of the race-track; the engine caught fire; he managed to crawl out of the mangled burning wreckage; lay on the grass; paramedics rushed to douse the fire burning him.
The lady wiping away tears : ‘He didn’t make it, pronounced dead; my Son was always like that, pushed himself to the limit; that limit took his life.

Bert was so saddened by the tragic demise of his long-time confidante; he gave a consoling hug to Bart’s Mom and said : ‘Yes, madam, you are absolutely right, he always pushed himself to the limit.
‘But… I heard Bartholomew’s voice on the phone ! I would never forget that low husky voice.’
Then he felt an eerieness…what about that speeding car that screeched past him on the lonely road; what was that? It simply dissipated!

Bert gave Bart’s Mom his phone number for her to contact him if she needed help.
‘Pharaoh, say goodbye to madam’…Pharaoh stretched out his paw…Ooooeeh! he whimpered.

He then rummaged his satchel…lo and behold, took out a pair of chopsticks; Bart’s Mom was surprised as Bert handed them to her.
‘That’s the last thing he left me with, his pair of kungfu chopsticks; we used to attend kungfu sessions by a master who taught us how to use chopsticks for self-defence by mustering and channelling our body’s internal force through the chopsticks and use them as a weapon.
Bart’s Mom held them close to her heart with both hands, even though she rarely ate with chopsticks, feeling Bartholomew’s presence like he had returned to comfort her. ๐Ÿฅข
