Seven Ancient Wonders of the World (Boston.com Travel)
Only one still exists today, but the short-list of marvels of the ancient world lives on. These manmade structures pay tribute to a time before modern technology when dedication and craftsmanship could yield unbelievable results. The seven wonders were selected by Philon of Byzantium in 200 B.C.

1. The Lighthouse of Alexandria 
- it has been well documented as one of the world's tallest structures for its time.
2. The Temple of Artemis
- Considered one of the most beautiful structures ever built, the temple was constructed around 550 B.C
3. The Statue of Zeus
- Honoring the king of gods, the statue gave a majestic quality to the temple of Zeus at Olympia.
4. The Colossus of Rhodes
- The life of this awe-inspiring statue was short lived, just about 56 years............ But its enduring message of unity of the people of Rhodes, a Greek island, lasted longer than its 110-foot physical structure.
5. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon
- the terraces are believed to have been an oasis in the desert...
6. The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus
- the structure included a sprawling array of statues that added glamour to beauty....
7. The Pyramids of Giza
- The pyramids are the lone survivor of this group of ancient wonders

Planned to go home for a short break before starting new job, hence I quit my last job without confirming a new job.

However,  after a few interviews and still unable to find a job, I realised I could not be relaxed as jobless=incomeless=insecurity. Therefore I also didn't go overseas.

Life being a jobseeker was not relaxing for me as I am a restless person who can't sit still without doing anything.

As I always said, "Job seeking depends very much on luck."  And as usual, I would job seek via the recruiting agencies.  After a few interviews, I was still job seeking at home.

星期四中午收到香港朋友電郵 - 我明天可能到新加坡找你.....[可能?到底來還是不來emoticon]

再三追問之下, 確定她星期五晚機到新加坡, 只逗留至星期日傍晚便啟程回港emoticon

雖然與她相識已十多年, 除了以前在大學宿舍時接觸比較頻密之外, 回港後只是偶爾飯局, 她的喜好是什麼, 國外觀光喜歡些什麼活動...等等 加上她在新加坡的時間只有一天半,  真是茫無頭緒. emoticon

One of my friends in HongKong has been planning to visit me since last year.  But due to her work and personal schedule, she could never make it till now.

Last Thursday, I received an email from her - I maybe coming tomorrow, what do you want from HK?

Maybe? that means she has bought the ticket already or just planning? After confirmed over emails, she told me she would come to Singapore over the weekend.  1st July is the 10th Handover Anniversary for HongKong and it's a public holiday on 2nd July.  Since she has to rush back on 1st July, that would make her stay in Singapore a very short one - 1.5 days.

Although I've known her for long time, apart from occassionaly dinner or lunch appointments, I really don't much about her hobbies or interests.  Whether she likes shopping? Eating? Nature walking? Pubbing? Sight seeing to historical stuff? Museums or? I really have no ideaemoticon
