THE CLOCK STRIKES TWELVE
Voting for the S’pore Blog Awards has closed.
Miss Loi is eternally grateful to all who had supported Jφss Sticks throughout this grueling voting marathon. It’s up to the judges now.
Like a Dark Damsel in her black dress, Miss Loi hopped onto her Black Mobile as soon as the last Jφss Sticks session ended.
The clock ticked down as she burst out of her Novena underground carpark in a flash, and sped towards a gloomy Vivo City on a dark Monday night, narrowly escaping a number of villainous ERPs along the way.
But arrived she did, albeit being ambushed by another ERP inside the City.
In an exceptionally brave move, The Dark Damsel passed under that ERP without a Cashcard, and hurried up the empty stairs to enter a hall in the nick of time for a showdown with … umm … these Jokers
Without giving the plot away, Miss Loi thinks that the movie flows well and, in typical Jack Neo fashion, should have no problem finding its identity with most Singaporeans (esp. in the scene where something was thrown into the sea) – though the hardcore use of Hokkien as Singapore’s national language might be a little problematic for non-native Hokkien speakers.
Also, special mention must be made of the Ah Ma actress who, like Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight, gave an absolutely outstanding and thoroughly memorable performance to embody the “Poorer than Poor” message that the film tries to send out.
But whatever novelty of attending this premiere screening was negated by the fact that Miss Loi is now nursing a terrible neck ache after staring at hugely deformed faces of Jack Neo, Mark Lee and 辉哥 for over two hours.
You see, being an invited event, it was free sitting in the cinema.
And having to rush down at the last minute meant that Miss Loi was relegated to the second row from the front by all the kiasu Singaporeans who managed to fill more seats than they physically could with their bags, newspapers, books,
ABC is a triangle on the horizontal plane with AB being the row of seats that Miss Loi was sitting at.
CD is the vertical height from the floor to the screen.
- The length of the row of seats AB.
- The area of the triangular area ABC.
- The angle of elevation of the screen as seen from A.
- The angle of elevation of the screen as seen from B.
- The largest angle of elevation of the screen that can be seen along AB.
Hence deduce (based on the angle of elevation alone) where Miss Loi sat on Monday night, and where was the worst seat that she could have sat in that row
Obviously, common sense will give you the answer but since the word HENCE has appeared, you have no choice but to 乖乖 calculate the answers like a Sec 3 E-Maths student
Some info regarding angles of elevation/depression (amongst other things) can be found at the end of this dramatic blog post. So everyone should be able to locate Miss Loi now, especially since this is a standard O-Level TYS question!
Oh and there’re just TWO MORE DAYS before voting ends!
Miss Loi thanks everyone for your support from the bottom of her heart *Takes a deep bow – Ouch – neck pain!*
The finishing line is within sight – just TWO MORE VOTES (one by tonight & one more tomorrow) from each of you and it’ll be over.
Please don’t let Miss Loi end up with Votes No Enough! Can??? Pleeease??? …. *shows 水汪汪的眼睛*
