The short film is titled ‘His Grandfather’s Road’ – a phrase Singaporeans sometimes use to describe drivers who behave as if they own the road.

The video centres on a road rage altercation between two families that ends on a buoyant and conciliatory note when they realise that they have a lot more in common than they thought.

I was having breakfast at the neighbourhood coffee shop last Sunday morning when I noticed the tiny figurine in the photo sitting in the middle of the table.

Since this is the Chinese New Year period, I suppose it’s Cai Shen Ye – the God of Fortune in the traditional Chinese pantheon.

Was this merely a handphone charm inadvertently left behind by another patron, or is the popular deity paying a visit to the mortal world?

At any rate, I lost no time in snapping a candid shot with my own handphone.

“在午时熙熙攘攘的除夕年货市场当中,这只猫咪却安详地沉睡着。完全淘迷在甜蜜的睡梦中。” – 科技点心(微薄)

Some of the shoppers tip-toed around it, while others looked like they’d have stepped right on it.

The kitty itself, however, was totally oblivious to the buzz of activities surrounding it.

An escapade too many, the night before, perhaps?
