Happy New Year Dr Handsome
You look as if you are on a movie set
Aha, 21st century Gatsby
What are you gonna pull off next...
Never a dull moment...Glambert quote
As we gloat and float all over the globe
On our hot-hair balloon...whiioo wheete up here
Quite mind-boggling...don't waste time haggling
Get on your feet...now that brings me
To the great big feat...Chang'e-4 touching down
On the unseen other side of the Moon to swoon 3 Jan
Historic 1st ever! ...a huge crater
Also, the peanut-shape Ultima Thule! NASA 1 Jan
To the furthest time and space of our solar system!
Brian May sending it off on his cosmo guitar
However nothing compares with my Adam Gatsby and Pharaohdoggo

I wrote all about the burglary on December 28 post one with CL and Adam on it.
My husband heard about it on the evening news tonight. They did mention that Adam and others were robbed by this guy. I read USA article and wrote on the above mention post about it yesterday. I assume you all read the article. Thank goodness Adam was not home or Pharoah either.
Believe the robberies occurred when people were not home. Hopefully all of them. I meant I assumed you all read USA article or others. I had heard when Adam moved to this house the old one he had a very high level camera system put in. This guy covered them or ripped them put.
Hopefully he has a great one in new house. Heard he was having the house worked on fixed the way he wanted it, the newer one.thats what I heard any way. Correction that was ripped out.
They recovered some items at the guys house and a lot in storage rooms he had. They ate trying to identify the separate items who they belong to.
Hope Adam get as many items back as possible. He may have had theft coverage on his insurance policy however. Those are things just thank goodness he and thay sweet little dog of his is ok. But I do hope he gets as many items as possible back. Hes worked hard for them. I wrote about this theft in more details on the post of dec 28.
A lady from TV show This Is Us got robbed a few months ago while she was on a TV show. Sure same guy.
Sure you already heard all this.

I think Adam should be more cautious. Once I saw a movie at a twiter party in which Adam showed the fans his box of jewelery that was in his bedroom.I think he should have a safe where to keep his jewels, not in a simple box sitting on a closet in the bedroom.

Mi Re La said...

Congratulations Adam for 100 million views on GhostTown. Good beginning of the year.

Mi Re La said...

Today 20th Century Fox announced the Freddie Mercury biopic would be available on Digital Download from February 16th in the UK. Meanwhile, the film is released on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD from March 4. As for the special features, there are a few treats for Queen fans.

Oh my....that hairdo!..... Adam does LOVE to play dress-up!

Hope Adam wins the TV Musical Performance of the Year at the 10th Dorian Awards. How could he not?

Thanks for the info, Mirela. BTW, were you finally able to see the video of Adam's performance?

Mi Re La said...

Happy new year Nanbert!
Trespasser posted on January 2 on youtube and is not geo-blocked yet. It's a very close shot. I think it is little different from the one that first appeared and which was geo-blocked after a few days
That's what I can see right now.

Dee R Gee said...

Wouldn't it be great if Adam won the LGBTQ TV Musical Performance of the Year? It sure got a lot of buzz!

Sue Smith said...

MIRela I think in this new house that has two big dressing rooms walk in closets whatever they are called he will have or may be having something built in the closet for his jewelry and valuables. Not sure that will stop thieves tho. Adam such an open person he just shows fans things they ask about. I agree probably should not show that. The robberies happened 2017/2018.
The jerk that robbed these peopl has a one million dollar bond on him. He not likely to get out any time soon. However I doubt he did this all alone. May be more arrest to come. But I dont know that.
























Mi Re La said...

I have no patience to see Adam on NBC Elvis Tribute Special. Does anyone know when it will be?

Nanbert said...

Mirela....I wrote down February 17th, 2019 for the Elvis Special. I believe that's correct. Like you, I can't wait....."Blue Suede Shoes"! I know Adam will knock it out of the ballpark!

Sue Smith said...

Dont know why aim getting those big spaces here. Did nothing diffetent.

Nanbert said...

Sue....no big deal. It's happened to me, too. Never figured out why.

Lam-My said...

Sue...see if this works for you: Tap Delete Key a few times and that blank space diminishes, you can actually see it move up to your last sentence...before sending/publish.

LAMBERT Outlaw said...

MiReLa .. I left a post for you on Ytube under the Believe video ... Thank you again!! I watched both & I just LOVE those close-ups on Trespasser video .. also like the original version so I watch them both back to back with a lot of ADAM videos when I can!!

BTW ... I went to the BG Fashion poll site & voted for ADAM just in case it was still running .. vote was accepted & confirmed on email but I'm not sure how often we can vote so I'll continue to vote as I did in 2018 poll ... every 48 hrs. ... what the heck .. can't hurt & it just might help!!

Happy New Year Love!!! Continued Peace, Prosperity, Health and Love is wished for you. ❤️

Sunflower said...

Mirela, the Elvis tribute was originally set for January the 9th, (sigh, in two days) but YOU have told us that the date was changed to February 17. So I'm just as anxious to see this and tomorrow the 8th, is Elvis's birthday. By the way I didn't read it through but there's some relevation that Elvis is still alive, receiving medical help in some hospital, that Elvis's father wrote this letter on how he is still alive but the letter to be opened in the year 2027 and the world will know everything. I hope Lambert Outlaw will read my comment because she's a big Elvis fan! So Elvis are you out there???

Sunflower said...

Ugh, I meant revelation in my last posting.

Helloo Adam! You look radiant
Sure envy your enormous amount of energy
Hopping from city to city
To bring joy and your unmistakable voice
So uplifting, re-orientates my psyche
As you can see, your radiance elicits poetry
So, not much time for Pharaoh
It’s okay, he’s got Daddy Javi to take care of him
Pharaoh! Do you miss Daddy…
Owoooooh! A lot ! My first love, my rescue…๐Ÿ•️๐Ÿ•๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿคพ๐Ÿป‍♂️

By the way, Adam...I use that metal box you signed, every morning, it’s my butter box which I’ve used for 25 years; lid, container exactly the same; so it’s from Germany; very good, doesn’t stain, stainless steel. I played the video again, the clips to hold the lid down...mine only rings, the lid is tightly fitted.

I just had my breakfast and lo and behold, I took a closer scrutiny at my butter-box side-clips which I never use cuz it's just for holding butter not lunch; Guess what, I clipped them to the lid and yes ! they are the exact clips, lid, box that Adam is signing, above. This fascinates me because my butter-box of all things gets international air time! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿงˆ☕ ! Bingo! Good morning!

Churning out song after song
Wails like a shepherd from the wilderness
Leading LGBTQ fearless

Everywhere I go…I’m looking for the sun
Nowhere to grow old…I’m always on the run

What it gives is immeasurable
It’s not a show…only you know…your zenith

I chanced upon this picture in my archive; I recall a story I wrote several years back called Godfather Glam based on it…Updated version:

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EJL8tTBXUAAtFao.jpg

Godfather Glam was sitting in his antique chair ruminating on the recent abduction of one of his secret clan members, a 10-year faithful follower who would crawl through fire for him. At this moment, the telephone on the side-table rang. Riiinngg…Godfather Glam was startled out of his rumination. Yes, he anticipated the ransom call for the release of JoJo. The thugs knew full-well Godfather Glam would pay, as he would protect his men at all cost.
A voice came on the phone:
‘I want 1 million cold cash in $100 bills. Deposit it in the desert oasis…a bearded guy will pick it up. Do not bring any other person or’ … The caller hung up.

Godfather leapt into action. The ransom was packed in a black suitcase…hurriedly got into his white BMW and sped off into the desert oasis.
Living on the outskirts of the desert was his long-time confidante, Saul who had many contacts at the oasis; they often gathered for camaraderie and drinks. Godfather called him from his car and they detailed a plan to thwart the ransom extortion.

Soon, Godfather Glam arrived at the oasis, a bearded guy was there, looking very grim at him with a surreptitious wink ! The exchange took place and soon JoJo was released…Godfather drove off in a jiffy with him. As he sped…about 50 metres away, gunshots were heard back at the oasis.

Ahh, being very experienced with regard paying ransoms, he had arranged for Saul to infiltrate into the gang at the oasis. Saul, wearing a white head-cloth and white robe, mingled with his oasis comrades. After Godfather Glam left, they went by a secret passage into the thugs’ hideout, an underground tunnel. Lo and behold, they spied them sitting on a flat rock surface apportioning the ransom money, handed to them by Godfather Glam who by now had sped far-off into the desert.

Hands up ! Don’t move ! The undercover police suddenly emerged from behind the tunnel pillars; arrested them at gunpoint, took them into custody; the money was intact. If it had not been for Saul’s tip-off, they would have escaped and apprehension wouldn’t stand a chance in this lawless vast remote desert.

Meanwhile, as Godfather Glam was speeding away with JoJo, he noticed a jeep tailing him. These were the looters waiting on the outside. Alerted that their ransom deal had gone awry, they gave chase, and fired at Godfather with machine-guns.
Godfather Glam knew the road through the desert would be too long and risky for an escape…swiftly activated a secret red knob in his BMW. A cloud of foam gas enveloped his car rendering it invisible to the thugs.
Well, his white BMW was well-camouflaged not only by the invisible gas, also the powdery sand the screeching tyres thrashed up. He raced through the desert without a trace. The ordeal could have ended in a bloodbath shootout.
Don’t mess with handsome Godfather Glam; he’s not called Godfather for no reason; lots of tricks up his sleeves.

Bang ! Bang ! Gunshots rang out from an overhead helicopter ! Noooo ! The looters had captured Saul at the oasis.

‘Get out of your car ! We can see you from up here!’ Looks like the invisible gas thinned out….he had to work fast, not only was his life threatened, he would never leave his confidante alone to fend off the ruthless thugs who were dangling Saul by a rope from the helicopter to lure him; it’s do or die ! oh oh oh oh ! freedom yeeeah!

He got out of his car cautiously…using the same tactic…pointed an infrared laser beam at the helicopter…Psssssssh !… the helicopter disappeared in mid air, the purring could still be heard.
The rope holding Saul started sliding down due to his weight; Saul being very acrobatic, jumped onto a high sand-dune mount as the rope got lower. Godfather Glam ran to haul him to safety while JoJo took over the wheel, sped to their rescue. No better friend than one who risks his life for another. They got away safely.

Continue ...

Lam-My said...

Godfather got his money back from the desert police. His loyal followers were duly rewarded for their recent dangerous undertaking. Godfather Glam and confidante Saul became very close trusted companions; but eventually each went their own way to pursue their career paths far from the desert oasis. ๐ŸŒต๐Ÿš•...๐Ÿš๐Ÿœ️

Arrrrgh…all hell breaks loose…pandemonium!
Dracul swoops…jabs Biker’s neck with his tainted fangs
Topples his titanium !
Whoa! in a split second Biker grabs hold the headlights
With outstretched legs… glares them at the demon’s head
Vrooom Vrooom…speeds towards the mist-shrouded lake
His lover, Javi blows kisses
I’m feeling sad…I removed 3 subsequent lines…
Cuz the Overglow of the halo moon fails to seal their tete-a-tete

As for Adam…so vulnerable but your true beau lingers…

Hi Adam ! Very happy you are concentrating on your music and charity foundation and making another video; I have no doubt Side B will be another extravaganza!

By the way your Superpower pie looks berry good !
In the old days, I used to hear people say : berry good or belly good; Singlish…I don’t hear it now, morphed into another form…haw haw!

Okay, here is a classic : An SIA air-hostess was pushing her trolley daintily down the plane aisle. Her trolley stopped in front of a well-attired westerner / angmoh in suit and tie; he was tugging into some beef-ball; the air-hostess gently asked in typical SIA fashion : Sir, would you like some sauce on your balls? ๐Ÿ˜ Those were the good ole 70s. By the way, our beef balls are super tangy! even today.

Hi Javi !
Never expected you and Adam to break up…
I wrote several poems on a long-lasting romance
Cuz you both fit each other’s temperament
It must be a double whammy to miss Adam and Pharaoh
I like Pharaoh a lot, he is consistent…he loves your touch
It breaks my heart each time I write about you and Adam
Time will soothe the sorrow; a ray of hope for reunion ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’”

Adam...keep working
It takes the mind off for a while
It was good while it lasted...
My psychic fails this time...saw a family
You seem a little resigned...kind of expecting
Talent of your calibre demands a high price
Your right beau may still be lurking
Find meeeee somebodyyy tooooooo....
Every cloud has a silver lining...๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒค️

I got myself trapped in an endless poem which I can add on, like Tammy turtle, even Bigfoot ! Just added...

Poooom Poooom Bigfoot appears in all its furry glory
3 Maestros keep playing
Bigfoot surreptitiously advances closer
1st Maestro : Don't run ! or we'll soon be reduced to fodder
Booom Booom ! Pa ! Pa !
Bigfoot loves their music...sways in rhythm
Suddenly grabs 3rd Maestro the handsomest...great taste
With acute presence of mind, 3rd Maestro clings onto a thick hanging creeper
Toooooo oo oo ooooo... swings like Tarzan
Bigfoot loses interest...retreats back into the forest Pheeeww! ๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ•️

Helloo Adam! you have great affinity with children; remember Grandma June and Red Hair who were abducted by space aliens who wanted her to make her special concoction of aphrodisiac soup. I chanced upon another Grandma June story in my archive, not space, very down-to-earth…

Grandma June though advanced in age still hiked through the woods nearby her cottage by the stream. She said it kept her alert physically and mentally. One afternoon, she was as usual hiking round a footpath that wound its way along the meandering stream. She heard footsteps and looked back to see who that might be. It turned out to be a little boy walking, and absorbed in blowing his flute. It sounded ethereal, the melancholic strains permeated the woods beautifully. Grandma June waved at the boy who didn’t seem to notice her and continued playing his flute.

Out of the blue, a pair of leopard eyes illuminated a dark corner of the woods. Grandma June panicked and rushed to protect the boy who seemed oblivious of the danger and just kept blowing his flute. It was too late, the leopard closed in on the boy, growled and showed its fangs. Grandma June screamed but flute boy was unperturbed by the imminent danger…what he did next was completely astounding.
He turned to face the leopard and continued playing his flute at it. The growling beast stopped short in its tracks…whoa ! Grandma June imagined the worst…strangely, it retreated back into the woods.
What was that all about? Grandma June was completely mesmerised at what happened right before her eyes! Was it some unknown magnetic field at play? Perhaps the frequency of the flute calmed it ! Grandma June rushed up to the boy and gave him a heartfelt hug.

I’m Grandma June…what’s your name? she asked gently.

Flute boy didn’t utter a word, continued playing his flute. She was really puzzled. Is there something wrong…why can’t he say his name; can he hear me…wondered Grandma June.
Soon they reached a shady part of the stream.
Flute boy played a new tune and all of a sudden a very large turtle swam up close to the banks as if responding to the flute. Lo and behold, the boy climbed onto the turtle’s back and the turtle swam downstream carrying the boy on its star-shelled back which served like a boat for him.
Wah, magic flute ! the boy knew how to tame the animals with it, the leopard and now a giant turtle…almost supernatural, weird ! muttered Grandma June.

At this moment, a voice was shouting desperately : Sonji ! Sonji ! Come back!

Grandma June pointed downstream, assuming he must be the boy’s father. The man ran towards that direction and kept shouting : Sonji ! Sonji !
Thank goodness, the little flute boy had got back onto the banks of the stream…his father caught hold of him and reprimanded him fiercely:

Don’t you run away from me again Sonji ! Flute boy didn’t utter a word.

Sonji’s father thanked Grandma June and explained that his son was special and could do unusual phenomenal things, but he didn’t talk much.

At this moment, Sonji smiled at Grandma June and finally uttered 4 words that made her so happy and relieved that he could speak.

Thank you Grandma June !
He must have felt Grandma June’s love and urgency to save him. ๐Ÿ‘จ‍๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿข๐Ÿ†๐ŸŒป

Can’t fathom the stranger
So they throw stones and sticks at you
What do you do ?
Say : Go fly a kite…!
Make sure the wind direction is right

Adam, it’s heart-wrenching to hear you sing…
I don’t need to feel love…just want to feel something
Adam’s fans are his main source of escapade
Cuz they always make him feel something
To mitigate the emptiness
Your special someone will appear when you least expect it
You touch so many people’s hearts
To make us feel something…better than nothing
Your gift from God is in itself an extraordinary something
That you use to reach us with everything ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿก

You made it big ! I told you so !
Your hair and fashion, chic and bold
Set us speculating on our toes
Expect the unexpected to uphold

Rock n Roll…on with the show…
Adam is blasted off to the moon
Causes an upset, a big bang boom
A huge Superstar is born real soon
Thanks universe, for this heavenly boon
Full of surprises, master of intrigue
Not succumbing to hate nor defeat
Prowling the stage…a mighty beast
Wailing out notes that don’t exist
Glam Nation…a galactic treat
By all accounts a world-class feat
Triggers an avalanche of tweet tweet tweet
Fans adore you at your feet
Your voice so high rises to the sky
Some of your songs make us cry
Hope your album arrives in style
Rooting for it to rock sky-high
Handsome Adam, labelled outlaw?
How can that be, we’re in awe
He cares too much, big and small
We will follow him forevermore
What are you bringing this summer or spring
Come to our city to sing and swing
Anticipating the next scintillating

I see you are responding to my poem; well, I just heard Cuomo say : He is *set free…(my Lambgenie poem above). And then, followed by Don Lemon, mentioning 3 times and your caption *purging / purge.

My original use of *purge so innocent ๐Ÿคฉ

https://youtu.be/gciEn01PmLs

Aha! Pharaoh Sphinx!
This brings back an unexpected fling
Regarding perch and purge
When Daddy remarked: You perched?
I subsequently interjected:
So have you…purged ?
Thinking that he wanted to make sure
You don’t mess up his new sofa ๐Ÿคข
Of course, you didn’t like that insinuation
Retorted: What a question!

I have used both… perch and purge
The first, in my poem Cicada
Perches outside my window
In hot sexual manoeuvre
Much to my amusement…purge became a media sensation
And that instigated me to write a separate Purge poem ๐Ÿ˜

A splurge to purge is on the upsurge
Mounting an intensive search for smirch
Potential candidates swoop onto a perch
To get a helicopter view of the political scourge
Who will be the first?
How many will be submerged?
I give due respect to all involved
The purger as well as the purged
Cuz I have no beef in this House immerse
Be not afraid for I’m with you always ~ Jesus’ verse
The Last Supper, in the Garden of Gethsemane…His Passion serves…
Meanwhile a curve ball smashes into the murk
Candidates strategise in a roundabout reverse
For now, stoic Pharaoh has no sofa to perch
Cuz his Daddy is on a whirlwind Rhapsody Tour berserk ! ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ•

Updated additional verse
Covert and overt strategies converge
To reinforce upcoming political converse
Impressed by the relentless fight to the last, electorate
My advice however is work as one unit, not split…you take the universe ☯️
With consideration to present dire situation of widespread coronavirus ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ˜ท

Haw haw CNN Fan ! I just saw your Caption using the word *triumph regarding a very high-level women harassment case and the Me Too movement. Someone remarked maybe it’s not so much of a triumph, rather that it gives strength and direction to girls and women against sexual predators.
Well, I think you are right to say it’s a *triumph ! but the other view point is okay.
And my use is just above…trying to console Adam; you can hear in the way he sings Heartbreak Hotel, his pangs of loneliness…his soul will *triumph over it.

Hey there CNN Newsroom, I just heard Manisha Tank reporting on how Singapore is curbing the coronavirus spread. She mentioned Singapore learnt a lot from the SARS virus that started innocently in 2002-2003. A lady came from China and went to hospital in a taxi from Changi airport, thinking it was just the flu and then the whole thing blew open. But this time with the COVID 19, our government was alerted by the outbreak in Wuhan. Immediately put up digital detectors / screening for fever and flu-like symptoms at Changi airport right from the beginning, not taking any chances at all; unlike SARS which went undetected and no tracing at the beginning. The SARS episode though not as widespread, actually I didn’t feel it that much, but ended tragically: a very dedicated doctor died ! trying to cure his patients in hospital. I recall on tv this doctor drove past his house every day, waved to his wife and children, 10 and 4 but dared not return home. Yes he knew there was a chance he would die and he succumbed. I watched on tv his wife only brought a large photo of him home; he finally manged to come home! It was so contagious they couldn’t give him a funeral, yes a brave and selfless doctor taught Singapore a very grave lesson with his own life.
So this time, with the COVID 19, the government is very very careful, not taking any chances so tracing and quarantine of clusters of infected persons and those they came in contact with, the best way to control it, is working. They are also working on a vaccine which may be clinically tried in several months time with WHO who reported that Singapore is handling COVID 19 very meticulously. I barely feel the scare at all, I don’t wear any mask, all sold out but the government is issuing 4 free surgical masks for every household. Those commuting on trains, planes etc. would need them Like when I take the bus, I don’t wear any mask; my area has no reports of cases of the virus; I tune in to CNA diligently to get the latest very detailed news. Today’s news says 53% of the 90 confirmed cases have recovered. The plus point is those recovered would have developed immunity to COVID 19.

Good afternoon Rosemary Church ! CNN Newsroom
I just heard you bringing up Singapore again, with regard to SARS 2002-2003 and yes you advise other countries perhaps to do what Singapore is doing to curb the COVID 19 spread. Well, I have gone through both episodes of these killer viruses, the latter still ongoing and our Government is urging all of us to be vigilant. I think the key is…don’t procrastinate; arrest it right from the start. I think Singapore was about the first country in the region ( I saw on tv) to set up the scans and screens to detect flu symptoms and fever…at Changi Airport. There were some grouses like why are we so scared?
Well, Singapore learnt it the hard way; a selfless doctor gave his life for us to learn this very precious lesson; so yes, you are quite right to ask why other countries are not carrying out the procedures like Singapore. Well, we too were not that prepared for SARS as now with COVID 19. The dedicated doctor and his family paid such a high price for Singapore to witness firsthand the havoc an unknown virus can wreak. Immediately jumped into action cuz once it gets into the wider community, there’s little chance of stamping it out. So the tracing and quarantine have to be stepped up day and night.
That selfless doctor went all out to save his patients but SARS was so lethal ! it finally got him too. His wife could only see him through the glass panel outside his completely sealed hospital room; towards the end. Earlier on, he drove past his house every day and waved from his car, dared not get into the house let alone hug his children, then 3 and 1.
His wife clasped a large framed photo of her husband close to her heart as she walked into their house, the photo facing the entrance of their house as if to let him know: You can come home now...he was finally home. It was really touching; there was no funeral, too contagious…

To add on…The Super moon shone right into my bedroom window last night 8 March my birthday. I didn’t know it’s called Super moon…Derek Van Dam CNN announced it earlier on in the afternoon that it is extra bright because the Super moon is closest to the Earth in orbit. I thought I might not see it as a tall tree blocks the view from my window; Yes, Super moon was peeping behind the spreading branches of the tall angsana tree. So I waited until it moved above the tree in the sky; it was extra brilliant with a big halo ! Stared at it, could see faintly the image of craters. Thought about Yutu on the other side. Today is 9 Mar Singapore. I’ve also seen the Red full moon, just as bright as Super moon but with a reddish tinge, last month.

Story time …

Time Trap

Bert was driving along a lonely stretch of road. Suddenly a road sign with arrows, caught his attention… >> Ghost Town.
Bert being the curious type, wanted to find out why it was named Ghost Town. He drove his beautiful black car into the inlet which seemed nice and sunny, a little bumpy. Soon he got into the estate; he looked around…rows of spic-and-span lawns and houses, vintage cars parked in the driveways.
He drove on hoping to meet someone as he was feeling a little hungry and wanted some directions to a restaurant for a tasty plate of spicy noodle. He looked left and right and he drove further into the estate.
He felt something strange about the whole place, neat rows of well-kept houses yet he could not see a single person walking along the road. So he decided to park his car to visit one of the homes. The doors were all ajar; Bert’s first thought was the people here were very trusting; got in front of an artistically-painted blue house; looked in and called out:

Hello! Hello! Is anyone there?… No answer…

He walked in and still found no one. He walked up a red carpet to the upstairs rooms. Bert was sensing something really out-of-this-world. He looked around…the house seemed well-kept, the beds all had clean bed-sheets, he even looked into the toilet, spankingly shiny.

He got back to his car and decided he would look elsewhere. Ahh finally, he found someone…sitting by a pond gazing intently into it. He got out and briskly walked towards the man who was gazing at the lovely orange and white koi swimming gracefully in the clear water. One in particular, had a black butterfly shape on its red body, the king koi. Bert walked up to the well-attired gentleman:

Good morning sir ! They sure look beautiful, don’t they?

The gentleman didn’t respond, not even aware Bert was standing next to him. Bert then gave him a tap on his shoulder.
Whoa! What was that?…Bert blurted out loud as he didn’t feel anything ! as if the man was a hologram !
He knew something was not right, eerie, and right about turn…he ran back to his car. He was panting and sweating, not knowing why. He regained his composure and then a grim thought came to him.

‘Am I dead…?’ He pinched himself…well, he felt a sensation…thank goodness! Bert thought.

He had enough of this silence everywhere…drove desperately back to the road entrance, just a short distance from where he drove in.
Lo and behold, he seemed to be driving round and round in a maze. He stopped his car…calmed his nerves and then tried again. In vain, he was making no headway. He banged on the steering-wheel hoping that might change things.

Beeeeep…What now?

‘You are trapped in the wrong time zone…’
A voice echoed from the outside. Bert wound down the car window…got out hastily to see if someone could direct him to the entrance. Goodness gracious! It was none other than the hologram man ! staring at him, smiling. Bert retreated and quickly got back into his car.

‘I can’t seem to be able to get out of this place…!’ Bert was feeling quite desperate.

He decided to get back to the koi pond. As he looked into the pond, the butterfly king koi swam towards him as if sensing he was in need of help; flipped into the air, faced a certain direction before splashing back into the pond and continued swimming in that direction. It seemed to be signalling something.
Bert got back into his car…this time he stepped on the accelerator and drove in the direction indicated by the koi…he would try anything to get out of this time trap !
It sped up a slope and screeched to a deafening halt onto the road, just past the >>Ghost Town signboard entrance ! He let out a deep sigh of relief…ahhh !

As he drove on, he noticed a man lying by the roadside and his car was badly damaged. An ambulance was parked nearby and the paramedic was administering resuscitation to the man. He seemed unconscious. Bert parked his car and got out to see if he could help.

Oooh-la-la, his time-collision course was not over yet. As he got nearer, he couldn’t believe what he saw. The unconscious man was a direct image of him ! wearing the same shirt, pants and even the same earrings ! What’s more, the bashed-in car had his number plate ! Noooo ! Am I dead? He pinched himself again. Ouch! It hurt !

Owooooh ! What’s that? …A doggo ! which seemed to have lost its way too. It started wagging its tail vigorously, Bert carried it back to his car.

Where’s my car? He looked all around; no sign of his Lamborghini. Bert and doggo then had no choice but to walk to the main road hoping to hitch a ride; still very perplexed where his car had vanished…
Suddenly doggo gave a loud howl…Owooooh! and scampered off in another direction; a twisted orangy path; Bert ran after it…there it was ! his Lamborghini gleaming in the sunlight.

Riinngg…a voice came on the car-phone : Hey Bert what happened, you are supposed to meet me at the sushi bar !

So what do you think…is Bert still trapped in Ghost Town ? ๐ŸŒ†๐ŸŽ️

Part 2 ~ New added on … Time Trap

Bert drove his Lamborghini to meet his friend Pete at the sushi bar. He took a short cut via a tunnel; he was so relieved to see the light at the tunnel exit. And then, a guy waved frantically to hitch a ride; Bert, always very obliging, stopped his car and the guy got in.

Hi ! … no reply from the man. That was strange; for someone who finally managed to hitch a ride, would be ecstatic. Anyway Bert drove on and asked where he could drop him off. As he turned to look at him… Whoa! The hologram man from the koi pond ! Bert was too stunned to touch him; the last time he did that, he felt nothing !

The car phone rang… ‘ Hello Pete, I’m almost there…you can start ordering, remember my favourite, crab meat on sushi…Hey Pete, sorry to keep you waiting !
There was no reply.

Just a footnote:
The story I wrote above (in 2015) was more of a Time Trap scenario as I’ve often wondered if a person’s spirit at death finds itself lost, trying to find its way back; so not about Ghost Town which was not released yet ! when I wrote my story; and so you can see the scenarios are vastly different. Later when I heard and watched Adam’s Ghost Town song/video, I borrowed the title but my Time Trap story remains the same, except for the last part, 2 that I added last night.
The Ghost Town video was posted into my archive right after I published my Time Trap story yesterday and so included it below. ๐Ÿ‘ป

ไฝ ๅฅฝ ni hao Lam-My ! I’m home with my Daddy

Pharaoh ! Run Run…where are you going?
I no no…just where the path leads me
Smelling the ground will lead me to Runyon to meet my buddies
Why do yo keep looking back…
Wanna make sure Daddy is still there
Also the leash is dragging me
Daddy can’t catch me so he puts a big red leash Owoooh!
Yea, basenjis are fast runners with long legs
You are so fortunate and free
When most people are under lock-down
You said it Lam-My…I am free and my Daddy dotes on me
As for me, I simply follow you and Daddy to write my hodgepodge poetry
Got to be vigilant…act fast, be ahead of Covid 19

I just heard you use *infrastructure…helping people cope with Covid 19 using technology, by Dr Amy on Cuomo Prime Time…18 Mar 2020

And mine, above poem:
I’m alone yet I can communicate with anybody
Sounds like a paradox but has to do with *infrastructure
Without which it’s not possible and therein lies the real ground zero ๐Ÿž๐Ÿ›ค๐Ÿ–ฅ️

ไฝ ๅฅฝ, ๆ—ฉไธŠๅฅฝ ! Steven Jiang ! I see you like the word *herculean ๐Ÿ˜Š 2nd time…I just heard you on CNN talking to Paula Newton…reporting from Beijing, comparing Covid-19 to WW2.

And here is my *herculean :

Joseph swims the 100-metre-butterfly
Looking more like a dolphin
Up and down his body undulates
And when he surfaces
His outstretched arms rotate
Liken to majestic water ballet
Reminiscent of the killer-whale’s tail
Splashing above the ocean
With three Olympic Champions hot on his heels
He just has to accelerate, no two ways about it
Trained as a child to chase his comrades
Coach gives the other kids a head-start
If not, he’ll be a body-length apart
Well, this tactic effloresces at the Rio Olympics
They chase, he sparks
Good heavens ! he clinches the Butterfly Gold!
Beating not one but 3 Champs in a row
Looking quite dazed on the podium
Joseph pulls off a super *herculean for Singaporeans!
In a decisive win, by a body-length distance
He came, he saw, he conquered with resplendence!

2️⃣1️⃣ March 2️⃣0️⃣2️⃣0️⃣ Spring Equinox ๐Ÿฉบ๐Ÿ›️

Velvet, Adam’s beautiful new album
Smooth, curves, blends with the earth
Malleable glamorous
Roses…by any other name would smell as sweet
Takes the mind off for a bit of upbeat
Chases off the gloom and doom standstill on the streets
Superpower takes the heat…shifts it
So we can defeat the invisible Covid 19
What is that ? Overglow you never know
Whacks you at ground zero
Lo and behold where are we ? On The Moon
Hop step jump ! Wheee…ready to free fall
With New Eyes to take you on a frog leap
Earth looking like a hanging Blue Marble
And that’s where I am right at this moment…in space
Writing my hodgepodge poetry…
We better do whatever we can, whenever we can
The world is changing gear, faster than we can conceive, topsy turvy
Today is the March Equinox, start of Spring, pointing at Pisces
Hello hello Aquarius ไฝ ๅฅฝ ni hao, I can see you
Astrology says : In AD 2597, the March equinox will move into Aquarius the water-bearer
Others say it’s already here…Dawn of Aquarius
Be that as it may, we are marching onward to seal this elusive Covid crisis ๐Ÿงฌ๐Ÿ’ซ๐ŸŽค♓♒

Our world in lock-down limbo
Isolation, solitary confinement
Groping for an exit, can’t find it
Mounting deaths in the thousands
Covid 19 has sunk its teeth
Deep into the human respiratory system
Scientists are working on vaccines, drugs
To turn around this life-death crux

Yesterday, I went out to get groceries
My usual once a week ritual
Our government has done meticulous tracings of clusters
So the rest of us can go about unquarantined
Purposely say, Hello ! to everybody
They just smile peacefully, politely
Not a word as they would need to open their mouth
My next-door neighbour however, walking her beloved doggie is chatty
Even asks me to call her if necessary
The taxi-driver coughs once, even that scares the hell out of me
He’s also wary as older folk are more susceptible to Covid 19

I watch on tv, a Minister cry at a Parliamentary session
No, he didn’t contract Covid 19…just so touched thanking health workers
Putting their lives on the line, all-out to assist
He tries to regain composure but his tears keep welling
Doctors, nurses, volunteers, virologists are the front-line heroes
Dedicating their time and compassion
What better friend than one who lays down their life for another
As for the 2020 Olympics…postponed to next year 2021
Well, Joseph Schooling’s 100-m butterfly Olympic record 50.39 seconds
Refuses to budge, a sort of unforeseen walkover
And Adam’s timely Velvet album connotes vulnerability, with strength, resilience
SARS 2003 gives Singapore a head-start; a hero doctor-surgeon dies to teach us
That we have to nip it in the bud…so Covid 19 this time round, can’t run amok
Meticulous tracing of clusters and quarantine fast and furious dawn to dusk
Give most of us more freedom without quarantine…it may last…economies hit hard…๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿš‘๐ŸŠ๐ŸŽค๐Ÿ’ž

I Want To Break Free…

Outlaws of Love expresses an emotion so deep
Like a beacon-light, scanning the dark treacherous seas
In search of love, peace, solidarity with LGBT

A trip in an Edo garden…wearing a black sexy singlet, studded shorts, boots, tantalising summer fusion
Fans wave their sunflowers and yellow-black boomaramas
As he pummels the air, on stage in reciprocal

Donning sexy fangs and a winsome smile, Cuckoo Glampire irks a taste of blood
Strikes up a sleazy conversation on the train’s surreptitious vampire pub

The last lap…striking his signature pose, clenched gloved fist in the air, legs stretched, full black
He flings and twirls a white straight-jacket strapped like a jackass!
Unfazed, gallant Knight of the Night fights back
Rockgod Trespasses, globe-trots into amphitheatres, Glamberts have his back

2013-2018… So far, we have covered cities west to east and back east to west…passing several times through…

Adam was speaking on behalf of Elton John regarding his Aids Foundation.

A single red rose pointing to his heart
From time immemorial…rose means love
Adam dons the rose so beautifully
It befits him elegantly
Because it comes from his heart
Not relegating my favourite part, brain
Adam sings:
Tears all fall the same…we all feel the rain…
Aids, so dilapidating; other diseases too
I seem to feel a worldly change, a boon or bane

QAL Padang 2016

Well, you won’t be able find a single soul on the Padang at this moment let only 55,000; I’ve always taken Singapore’s freedom to roam as I please for granted, even at midnight, nothing will happen and I will reach home safely.
Well, I can still do that on my own now, but a silent fear lurks in a corner of my mind…our Government is all out to protect the people, in phases, this final thrust is called the Circuit-breaker, coined by PM Lee Hsien Loong; more stringent measures as Covid number increases and businesses dealt a severe blow, mitigated by Government to keep them afloat. ๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿคจ

PM Lee Hsien Loong comes on tv regularly to tell us the actual situation / scenario. With a smile, he reveals : Fortunately, we did not listen to those who ask why we need to save so much money in Singapore’s Reserves which are guarded tooth and nail; this is the first time, a total of 60 billion has been released and more if required to help people tide over their loss in income, business, household expenditure; never before such a sizable amount.
He said if any country can get through this Covid pandemic slaughter, it will be Singapore, cuz we have the resources, determination, unity, technology, to crush it. ๐ŸŽ‡☯️๐Ÿ–ฅ️

Okay, here is his actual speech…very emotional, voice breaking…Singaporeans love Lee Kuan Yew…genius…written 10 books; I read one; his English is flawless, very detailed, vivid descriptions. I recall this little portion which got imprinted in my mind. He wrote about escaping from two Japanese guards (WW2), by hiding in a bush…he saw their boots stop in front of the bush, it was raining…he knew it could be the end; they were hunting down Chinese men whom they suspected were in league with China, then at war with Japan.
They walked on…
He died in 2015 at a ripe old age of 91; it seems till the very last days, he was still brushing up on his Chinese.
As the cannon-carriage carrying his state-draped casket passed by the heartlands, crowds lined the roads, called out his name, in tears in the pouring rain…Lee Kuan Yew we love you…A total of 1.5 million paid their last respects including worldwide Dignitaries.

ไฝ ๅฅฝ ni hao ! Natalie Allen and Manisha Tank CNN Newsroom…
I just heard you report on the big spike in Covid cases in Singapore today. Manisha is right about the close living proximity in the foreign workers dormitories; now they have spruced up the living quarters only 2 or 3 workers per room, which means more separate housing areas / facilities, and they are not allowed to socialise, to remain in their rooms, with medical care when required. The other reason for the spike of 786 cases highest in a day since it started could also be due to :

‘ Singapore scientists on the front lines of fight against Covid-19 : … the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*Star), … discovers test that can tell if a person has Covid-19 in as little as five minutes. … This sample is then put in a portable device that will give the result in about five to 10 minutes … Mar 25, 2020 ‘

So faster testing would be able to track down a larger no. of cases in a shorter time.
Actually, Changi Airport put up scans and monitors to detect fever, flu-like symptoms right from the beginning, 3 Jan 2020 when authorities got wind of the Wuhan outbreak and it was 2 weeks later that the first Covid case surfaced in Singapore, 23 Jan.

Singapore A*Star scientists have been very vigilant since SARS 2003 and so test kits were ready to go any time. At the beginning, when Wuhan was in dire need for these test kits, masks, Singapore sent 10,000 to Wuhan, China thanked Singapore. Quite recently, Singapore sent 5000 test kits to Malaysia. ASEAN + China Japan S Korea work very closely with regard sharing of resources. In reality, we have been working very closely all the time as far back as 50 years ago.

I’ve said earlier, the spike in the number of Covid cases though of utmost significance, is not the top issue; it’s how the Country deals with it; this may last, so there must be a contingency plan in place; this enormous problem has to be tackled on multi fronts, most outstanding would be identifying the infected persons, separating them via tracing / testing so that the rest can carry on relatively safer in their work, school (all closed, online classes); the other urgency is money for day to day livelihood, food, medical care and our Government for the first time dipped into the Reserves, $60 billion with emphasis to shore up small, medium-size businesses so that when the Storm subsides, they would be able to carry on from where they left off with fewer workers laid off. I think our Government has done a meticulous job on all fronts.
11 died…elderly with ailments. God is with you. Rest in Peace.

I just heard a report on the Covid spike in Singapore on CNN.

This caught my attention : that at the beginning, Singaporeans were very confident but now our confidence seems diminished…Not true. To date : 12,693 Covid cases, Recovered : 1,002, Deaths 12 ! one of the lowest death tolls in the world; that tells you the medical facilities / doctors / nurses / healthcare workers are of a very high standard. So to say we have lost confidence in our perception and fight against Covid in Singapore does not hold water.

You are right about the schools all shut and people work from homes. That’s because PM Lee Hsien Loong and Ministers are working towards a clear reduction for a period of at least 1 month; circuit-breaker extended to 1 June 2020. Right now apart from the foreign workers hitting the highest number, 8000 cases, there are still no signs of a rapid widespread; local transmission about 25 a day on average and we know where these clusters are so we avoid those areas for the time being. For instance, if I want to go to one of the stores still allowed to open, to buy a pair of CPU speakers, my present ones are old and cannot turn up the volume to hear Adam’s ethereal bombardment and Queen’s booom booom pah…I can just hop onto a bus and go to the shopping complex nearby but I would not loiter and also must wear a mask and keep a safe distance of 1 to 2 metres from other people. The point is I have the freedom and confidence, unlike what Manisha implies that we have lost our confidence…We haven’t…that will be the day !

Regarding the foreign workers, they like to work in Singapore, though Covid highlighted the crammed quarters which gave rise to the Covid spike; some brought it from their own country when they returned. PM Lee just came on tv to say the foreign workers problem has been contained by separating them, those ill from those mild cases in different isolation areas where they are not allowed to mingle or leave. They like to work here because their salary is 4 to 5 times higher than what they can get in their own country; and in this present Covid pandemic, they would most likely be laid off with no pay in their home country and what if they fall seriously ill…are there enough respirators / ventilators ? Now they are paid without working, free lodging, best medical treatment, clean hygienic nutritious food. I think they are still getting a much better deal than if they had returned to their home country; any time.


Good morning CNN Fan!
Just heard Anderson Cooper and a Doctor (previous show) use the word *confidence twice emphatically. And mine above. You have jumped to my defence a couple of times. ๐Ÿ™‚
Regarding the low number of deaths, it could be attributed to Singaporeans’ strong immune system against diseases not just Covid; clean nutritious food and clean water, efficient sanitation all these and more, crucial to the building up of strong immune system against diseases; the local low Covid cases, deaths attest to this.
Rest in Peace the Elderly departed.

A quirky lonesome story…

Whoa! Why is the crystal glass on my bedside table shaking? Earthquake!…no, not likely.

Helloo Bert!

Who is that?

Look at the ice-cube in the glass. Do you see anything other than the ice-cube?

No…oh, yea, there’s something moving inside the ice-cube, a silvery substance.

Yes, you got it…that’s me…ice-genie.

Whaaat ! ice-genie? So what are you doing in the ice-cube?

That’s why I’m shaking the glass…to get your attention to help me get out. I’m trapped in this iceberg!

No kidding!…must be the effect of my hangover. Bert got up, went to the bathroom, splashed some water on his face. Looked at the glass again…still shaking !

Hi Bert!

So what do you want me to do ice-genie?

Well, pour some tequila into the glass and it will set me free !

Bert was feeling a sense of emptiness, the Elvis song he performed in Las Vegas still ringing in his brain…I be so lonely…I be so lonely…I could die…he thought he was hallucinating. He got up and went to the bar-counter of his tastefully furnished hotel suite, got a small bottle of tequila, poured half into the glass. Pssssssh…a silvery light escaped from the ice-cube through an opening melted by the tequila.

Thanks Bert!

Who are you?

I’m the ice-genie that you just released from my inescapable iceberg.

A handsome genie you are!

Ice-genie then took Bert out for a stroll in the nearby woods.

Do you see that hill…there’s a tunnel beneath and if you walk through the tunnel, you’ll see a light that will take you to where I live.

Bert was still in a disoriented state…Hey ice-genie…I’d like to visit your home…

Light at the end of the tunnel will lead you to a new horizon, that’s where I live.

You live in an horizon but it has no limit, how do I get there…

Bert woke with a start, feeling quite weird…glanced at the glass on the bedside table to detect any shaking or a sign of ice-genie; no, the ice-cube melted…
Hold on a minute…the bottle of tequila on the bar counter is half full ! ๐ŸงŠ haw haw Sleepwalker ๐Ÿ‘ฃ

Madam Yap Lay Hong, 102, is Singapore’s oldest coronavirus survivor.

She was discharged from Tan Tock Seng Hospital on Friday (May 1).

Madam Yap was among 16 residents and staff at the Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home who caught the virus – a cluster that led to a ban on visitors to all nursing and old folks’ homes in April.

“Today is a day of happiness as we welcome home our residents who fought hard to recover and overcome the Covid-19 virus.

“They were discharged from the hospitals and are now resting well at the home. We thank the heroic and selfless efforts of our front-line healthcare colleagues who nursed them back to health.”

Madam Yap, who was born during the Spanish flu pandemic in 1918, is among the rare centenarians worldwide battling Covid-19. The oldest to survive the virus is a Dutch woman in the Netherlands, 107-year-old Cornelia Ras, who recovered in about 20 days.

My use of *carnage has come home to roost…just saw on CNA caption on tv / Adam Bakhtiar / business news Singapore…’Corporate Carnage’. I like this combination, double C…alas under devastating corporate losses due to Covid 19. Don’t worry…we will return with the Lion’s roar, raw! Right now all the Singapore banks and essential corporations are still open for business, they never closed at all; restrictions easing for other companies, stores, even home-baked kway / cookies which were not allowed and the kway / cookies turned bad cuz these are freshly baked, no preservatives. Petitions were lodged. Must wear mask and sit 2 metres apart at hawker / food centres etc etc…

The other day I went to my usual NTUC supermarket and a line formed outside, so I thought just to limit the number going in; but at the entrance a girl pointed the thermal scanner at my forehead and scanned my Pioneer card or any ID will suffice; lo and behold, the girl said 36.3; I repeated 36.3…she said loudly, very healthy; haw haw smiled and thanked her! I’ve taken Singapore’s freedom of where I can go as a right of way; suddenly it dawned on me wah ! whaz zis zhis…but grateful. ๐Ÿ˜‚

My first use of *carnage was about the Orlando massacre of 49 gay people; then later spoken by the President…’American carnage’. That’s why I said, *carnage has come home to roost, from a long way. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello hello CNN Fan ! ni hao ไฝ ๅฅฝ !

I just heard you use *ad hoc on CNN Tonight.

I somehow felt you would be the one to pick it up cuz like I said before, you’re sharp and hot on my heels; you have reused it aptly in regard the Covid *ad hoc ppe procurement.

Okay mine:

‘…I have not socialised for many years, mostly alone at home, other than quick chats with my neighbours, grocery store people, taxi-drivers, *ad hoc; but I don’t feel strange being on my own. I reach out to people… also connect with my online Fans who track the vocabulary I use in my poems and stories; this was started by my CNN Fan and now others are jumping onto my toot-toot caravan.’ ๐Ÿž๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿ˜

The Light song lyric (above) … The word ‘drowning’ is strong; relates to the fearful ‘drowning’ by Covid infected people who can’t breathe; also, the stark message : just fight !

People around the world are navigating / circumventing the lock down; bottom-line, life has to go on. As Lee Kuan Yew once said in an emotional speech, his voice quivering : Follow that rainbow…if you find a grain of gold…dig it up…You may think it’s not the time to go digging for gold but it is, cuz the gold here is buried very deep and scientists, doctors are all out to find it, the life-saving vaccine or at least a partial mitigation to slow down the Virus…that’s the gold that they have to dig up.

Jill Neubronner CNA says *it’s here to stay…(my poem); I’ll add, make do with whatever means, resources at our disposal to contain it and carry on as best we can with our lives.

Regarding the *floodgates in Alisyn’s vivid analogy on New Day…she was talking about opening the *floodgates of the lock down; when you open the floodgates, water will gush out, in this case people will.
In my poem, my imagery of the *floodgates is that of the trachea and lungs, inundated.

My Ode to Covid 19
World in lock down ! not even in my wildest imagination
What seems benign, turns so fearsome
Weaponless against Coronavirus
Even the most advanced space conquest or nuclear arsenal
Has no clue how to defeat it ! The fury of mighty Nature
A humbling eye-opener even to the most brilliant brain
Earth subdued, vulnerabilities exposed
Countries big or small, we are all in the same boat
It boils down to how it is handled, *it’s here to stay
Nowhere to hide, no escape other than just lock down and wait
For a vaccine to save us before we drown at the *floodgates ☣️
A frightful dismal scenario…not so fast…humans are the most creative
That’s how we inherit the universe…fight to the last most resilient species ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿคข๐Ÿ˜ต

I found this tucked away in my story files, it struck a chord with the present dire straits of the Covid pandemic; the world fighting tooth and nail to keep above water or drown in one’s own fluid in the lungs.

Bert and Saul were on their way to distribute boxes of food to those living on pavements by the roads, in makeshift tents and cardboard boxes.
They were driving along a secluded road and suddenly a dark figure rushed across the road in the path of their car.
Screeeech…! The tyres came to an abrupt halt. Saul got out immediately to see if the person got hurt. The youth dashed off to the opposite side of the road and disappeared into a cluster of slum houses.
Thank goodness, nothing happened but Bert said they should go there to distribute the boxes of food as the slum looked dilapidated and poor. Saul agreed and Bert drove into a narrow dimly-lit mushy lane.
Suddenly, Saul caught sight of the youth again and told Bert perhaps they should check him out. He seemed to be clutching a bundle tightly to his chest. Bert stopped the car and Saul got out.

Hello! Good evening, you need help? Saul called out from a distance.
The young man turned, without responding and walked off deeper into the slum.

Bert thought perhaps they should continue with what they had set out to do; distribute food to the poor and needy.
Saul and Bert handed out a lot of boxes, about two hundred, containing delicious home-cooked meals prepared by Saul and Bert who are very good cooks. The boxes contained different combinations of pasta, meat burgers, vegetables, banana, tomato, even dessert like jelly, fruit, and styrofoam cups of hot coffee as the weather was extremely cold.

As they were moving around the dilapidated slum, Saul spotted the youth again running frantically with the bundle he was clutching. Bert knew there was something not quite right; decided to accost him; especially wanted to know what was in the bundle.

Hey! Stop! We want to help you! Bert yelled at the top of his lungs; as we know he’s got a booming voice.
Something fell out of the bundle and the young man swiftly picked it up but this time he didn’t run off; perhaps he could feel Bert and Saul genuinely wanted to help him.

What’s in the bundle you are holding? Bert politely inquired.

The guy started sobbing and opened up the bundle.

Nooooo!…gasped Bert and Saul. It was a lifeless puppy!

I’m Rego, my puppy got run over by a car as it was looking for me. I always took him with me but this evening I was in a rush as I was late for work and so left him at home alone. Bert and Saul looked petrified at the sight of the bleeding puppy.They were at a loss as to what to do even though they have a lot of experience with dogs.
Then Saul noticed twitches in the unconscious puppy’s struggling closed eyes.

Bert, I think it’s still alive!
Bert and Saul immediately took Rego and his bundled-up puppy into their car and raced down the street like an ambulance ferrying a dying patient to hospital.

At the animal clinic, the vet immediately fixed an oxygen mask to the puppy’s mouth and administered CPR to revive its faint heartbeat.
Meanwhile, Bert and Saul waited with tense Rego outside. After 20 minutes of expert intensive treatment, the vet said he did all he could, now it was just up to the puppy.
Rego stood by his beloved puppy watching it anxiously, and then saw a movement in Bobby.

Bobby ! …Rego whispered into its little erect ears.
Rego bundled it up again to keep it warm and radiated a smile for the first time.

Bert and Saul paid a nominal fee to the vet, thanked him for the timely rescue. They drove Rego back to the slum area, his home, and handed him the last two remaining boxes of food; one for Rego and one for Bobby.

Rego called out and waved thankfully as Bert and Saul drove off… Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Take care Rego!...with a broad smile and thumbs up. ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ‘

By the way, when I watched Live the Solar Eclipse from my balcony on 26 Dec 2019 the Covid pandemic already started; whoa ! sign from the sky; the moon blocks the sun almost in entirety leaving a ring of fire; in ancient mythology it spells catastrophe…a monster is eating up the sun.

This is what I saw from my balcony 26 Dec 2019 12 noon – Solar eclipse / coincides with start of Covid 19…on hindsight.

I could see it spectacularly only when the sun is blocked so the glare is less damaging to my naked eyes.

Adam’s masterclass, not easy to *replicate at all…I was so fascinated I made a quirky story where Bert sings, There I Said It…to a dragon to save himself and Pharaoh ๐Ÿ•

https://youtu.be/qvIGEHNQSqM

ไฝ ๅฅฝ ni hao Super Dr Fauci ! know-all scientist on Coronavirus, how they behave in our bodies; so why am I excited about that…well, I just heard Dr Fauci on CNN town hall using the word *replicate in all its forms…*replicates (verb) *replicating (participle) *replication (abstract noun), explaining why some who have recovered from Covid 19 can still test positive and his answer is precise and clear…because after a person recovers, there are still remnants of the virus, nucleic acids and the test can’t differentiate if they are dead or alive hence appear on the test. Not contagious.

And my use (just above)

Adam Lambert’s masterclass, not easy to *replicate at all…'There I Said It'

Maybe Dr Fauci likes the song, kind of fits his present circumstance like 'you want the truth but you destroy it' or maybe he likes my Daniel in the Lion’s den biblical inference in my 'There I Said It story' (below)…As for me, I like the dragon, he knows Super singing when he hears it. ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฒ๐Ÿ˜‚

'There I Said It…'

Bert and his beloved dog were out on a jog. Trip trip trip across the bridge overlooking a chasm. Pharaoh trotted briskly keeping close to his Daddy on the narrow winding path.

Daddy, someone is following us…
Really? I don’t see anything.
A long shadow was noticeable, could be cast by a tree as evening shadows are long.

Daddy, the shadow is dancing…
What? Phara, are you okay?
Ooooeeh…Pharaoh continued whimpering.
All right, I’ll check it out.

Wham! Something dropped from atop a precipice…A net ! They were trapped ! whoa !
Whiioo! Whiioo ! The chieftain blew his whistle…a group of natives emerged from the chasm labyrinth. They formed a circle around Bert and Pharaoh who sensed imminent danger and started trembling.

They struggled but the more they did that, the tighter the noose got. Where did these wild natives come from, this day and age…About ten of them dragged the net and it was barbaric like a scene from the movies. Pharaoh was shivering head to toe; Bert tried to keep calm while being prodded into the dark chasm; the only light source was through rock fissures where water was also seeping down. Ooooeeh…Pharaoh gave out a whimper of fear.

All of a sudden…Pooom ! Pooom !…a large well-camouflaged reptilian lifted its head which was earlier thought to be a rock by Bert. It started spewing sparks and smoke from its mouth, irritated by the commotion…A dragon ! Bert too was feeling jittery now.

Aarrrgh ! Pooooh ! The natives’ dragon threw a tantrum, storming around…To appease it, they hurled chunks of meat to feed it. The narrow chasm was shrouded in smoke and darkness, almost zero visibility except for the twilight seeping through. Bert thought this would be his only hope to freedom while the natives were tending to their dragon. Took out a sharp penknife he always carried with him on a hike…cut the net open and crawled out.

Phara Run! Pharaohdoggo understood the command Run!

Both made a dash for the ravine entrance, groping and feeling their way in the twilight. The natives hardly noticed their stealth escape.

Daddy! We better get back to the main road before they realise we are gone.

Too late…Bong Bong Bong ! The natives were hitting their gongs to alert their guards at the precipice. They soon caught up with them, threw another net from atop the precipice and recaptured them ! shouting and banging the gongs to signify their success.

Dragon came ambling out of the chasm… Pooooh ! Pooooh…! Puff their magic dragon wanted more servings of meat. What followed was abominable! The natives carried Bert and Pharaoh…lay them in front of the dragon’s mouth to serve as fodder… Waah! what now…

Bert had a flashback on Daniel in the the Lions’ den…Daniel played his harp and the lions left him alone. There was nothing else Bert could do now but to distract the dragon, its green eyes gleaming at him…in desperation, he sang for his life and Pharaoh’s…

So there I said it
And I won’t apologize to you anymore
Cause I’m a grown-a** man
And I won’t live again
And I’m sick and tired of living in your shadow
So there… I said it yea…

His ethereal Vocals reverberated the chasm and soared…Dragon ambled closer to Bert, tilted its head responding to Bert’s vocals which had reached a Crescendo…Dragon looked and listened…At this juncture, the natives who treated their dragon like a kind of god, got together and decided this was a good *omen ! Bert and Pharaoh were set free… ๐Ÿ›ค๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‰

Invisible yet so powerful
Humans forced to shift their paradigms
Work from home, switch to digitalisation connections

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 to procreate the human species
So what are we left with…

Be that as it may, united we stand, divided we fall
Quarantine, isolate, pick up the pieces, eradicate Covid !
Confront it head-on, leave no loophole for the virus to spawn
Has 21st century gone wrong ? No, but I feel a turning point of no return

Back to the drawing board, rethink, reinvent
A never-seen-before unknown hangs…
Coronavirus spikes that fuse into human cells, replicate, suffocate
Our defenceless immune system that can’t recognise its enemy

Covid masquerade
Why did this word jump out of my head
Impromptu, caught me by surprise
So I try to rationalise, ruminated quite a while
I think it’s the mandatory mask we have to wear
Liken to a masquerade party
More dangerously, Covid 19 too is masquerading
Corona ~ crown , spikes ~ thorns ~ crown of thorns
That our immune system can’t recognise
That in fact is the crux of the tragedy
6 million infected…369K deaths, never before so deadly
To the 2.64 million recovered
You give encouragement we will eventually defeat it
Even if it mutates many years down the road
Your immune system may have a little inkling how to fight it
Instead of being in total fatal darkness
Brings to my mind Lee Kuan Yew’s advice
Follow that rainbow…if you find a grain of gold…dig it up…
You who have recovered from Covid
Have found and dug up your grain of gold…treasure it !
