Bond Breaker
J made me this clay "cake" with an old biscuit tin and a metal chain to commemorate the end of my 8-year government scholarship bond yesterday. Inside the clay-covered tin is the rest of the chain, and the words on the side say "Bond Breaker" - the alphabets O-N-D have fallen off (but hey, that's because I'm no bond breaker). Thanks J!

Here's the other clay object J made. (Singaporeans can and do make things with our hands) Function-over-form me thinks that this object is an ashtray...but with that phallic smiley rising from the ashes, it is best that I leave you to your own conclusions.

It's 'DA BOND BREAKER'! very hip-hop, yah?
Any, it is also dedicated to to TYM. 8 years of 'bondage' is rather unimaginable. But I have been in this company for almost 8 years already. Time to play the musical chairs? - the other half of ampulets.

Hooray for the end of your indenture! Bond-breaker that I am, I can't say that there is anything similar in our first steps of bond-freedom, but I do remember that those days were heady, head shot full of blood, as if I was breakfasting on champagne every morning.

Thanks, the other half of ampulets! (Shall we just refer to you as TOHOA from now onwards?)

Now I'm thinking if we should have a real cake for Friday...
