我的志愿。。。

Stupid Ben! Haha!
I know we all care! More and more people started to be mindful of what they are doing, whether is it harmful to the mother earth.. This shows how much we care 🙂

Taking it a step further… you know, we’re always being asked长大后要做什么?
Last time was like 医生,警察,消防员,老师,律师…
Now, more and more people are into jobs that are related to ‘green’.

Singaporeans like to buy and sell houses… haha! So maybe a job related to ‘building’ might be a good choice… ‘green building professionals’… sounds good huh? I was told there is a rise in demand…

Read this from somewhere in the internet…

The attractiveness of green building careers?
It is indeed a meaningful career path for youths to consider as firstly, they will be involved in the worthy cause of mitigating climate change and secondly, they will be working with advanced technologies to produce creative solutions to achieve environmental sustainability…

This is the website you can explore more if you are interested…

www.buildingcareers.sg

Architect, mechanical engineer etc… you can do your part in helping to build a ‘green building industry’… 我们全靠你了!haha 🙂

tower Dun forget this game gonna end on Sunday, rem to try your luck ;p

Tower Stacko vs Angry Birds

After performing so well in ( Trail version all 3 stars! Paid version 1st part also 3 stars! Ahem… haha! ), I decided to take a break from it…

Currently, my new challenge…

Tower Stacko!

tower

Bet you should have played a lot of different version, I’m currently trying to set my record in the BCA’s face book Tower Stacko…!
Okay, I admit I’ve got coordination problem… between aiming and dropping it… haha! But although the game is simple, it’s no as easy k! Dun believe you try it, then you’ll know… and you stand a chance to win an Apple iPad, regardless of how clumsy you stack them! Hahaha! Ends 26th Sept fyi…
( must click the info that pops out sometimes on the left bottom to gain more point… dun say I didn’t share the tips hor… : )

Speaking about games, there is this other cool green home builder game which you can find here!
green You can build a green house like in The Sims. I find it really useful as it shows you how to make your home greener and save money while playing something fun. 🙂

Picture 2

I wanna win iPad! haha

Mum was like asking how come the weather was like so unpredictable and bad recently, floods etc… and I took awhile to explain to her regarding global warming….

She appears to be like… catch a bit of ball… but don’t understand it totally…

So now you see, they dunno, they cant do much… but if you are more educated than her… you should be aware of global warming’s impact . And do a bit more… it can be simple and easy moves… which will help to save the environment…

Taking about that, after I’ve been following quite a bit of BCA movements (since a few month ago), I started to think building Green home is like quite challenging huh? I’ve got no talent in it lah… but I like admiring nice and unique ideas…… Apart from the funny jokes and lame post I surf in the net, I started to search a lot on Green Building nowadays too… *upgrade myself yah… ;p

Accumulating tips on building Green home… Who knows, one day…one fine day… I might be involve in building one… haha!
Reuse, Recycle, Reduce… 🙂

Talking about it, if you’ve missed the BCA Green Building Exhibition previous round being held in HDB Hub, coming up next is at Marina SQ Central Atrium, 9th to 12th Sept, 12 noon to 8pm. Go with your friends or family. You will be able to pick up some green tips and apply them at home to save $$…

I want the Eco Bag they’re giving out.. think my mum will love… to see my domestic helper carry it while they’re are out shopping for grocery … She will think it’s nice but too stylo and hip for her… so seeing it beside her is a joy.. haha!

Green bca2

This is how they look in real person… ahem…!! ( not the 2 gals lah! Beside them! )

Green bca4

Just got to know them when I was like trying to surf the net for some renovation stuff.
They were introduced to me by BCA ( Building & Construction Authority )! *… yah, right!…*

Enough of jokes…
This is the Green Building Exhibition done by BCA.
They have been going around Singapore to create awareness with regards to Green Building.
I thought it would be nice to share this info with you… 🙂

If you’ve got time, hop on down to HDB Hub this weekend. I wish I could…
Seems like there’s quite a bit to explore, looking at past event’s photo and write up…

Green bca3

…visitors got up close with the faces behind green buildings and were provided with insights into the career
of green building professionals across the whole value chain. They will learn about how a ‘Green Mark’ certified
home can reduce water & energy bills & improve indoor environmental quality for healthy living… blah blah…

Which means –
If you are looking for jobs, should go….
If you want a ‘green’ home, should also go…

Nonetheless, the event looks fun…
Bring your friends, kaki, family there this weekend, if you dun have to work ( unlike me 🙁 )…

Green Home :)

Anyone who has engaged into house renovation will know how headache it is.
After going into phase 2 of my house’s renovation project, there is like thousand and one things to take care of…

36459_438605685265_749130265_6235725_5221489_n

Trying to hunt for all the eco friendly ideas, to see if I could incorporate it into my house.
I remember there’s something like a Green Building Exhibit done by BCA launched not too long ago… And that’s what I need, Green Green Home! hahaha…

Ok lah, I’m not that bad in Green stuff. Here’s some stuffs that I’m doing…

Plants!

Plants provide oxygen. It helps clean the air because of photosynthesis. It has also been proven that they have calming effects on people…

greens

Window Film!

To reduce heat penetration, lower room temperature and cut down on my air-conditioning bills… Yeah!

So… What else huh? Anything to contribute?
