One Night Stand

Been wanting to write about what happen last Saturday evening, but was kinda busy.


I was at MOS with a group of friends last Saturday evening. We reach there quite early and got a table. I notice this gal at the table opposite us the moment we sat down. She was wearing a low cut and looks stunning. I couldn’t keep my eyes off her.

blah blah blah blah blah....


OK, now that I’ve gotten your attention, Please visit Free Rice and do your part for charity. Thank you.

To Pingsters: Sorry for tricking you to my site. I posted an entry with normal title yesterday and there is only 6 pongs. Come on, this site deserve more attention. Please visit this site and do your part for charity.

Sorry if you feel cheated. I have no choice but to do this. Entries with normal titles just aren't getting enough pongs in I don’t normally post misleading entries. But for the sake of charity, I have no choice but to scoop to this level. Please forgive me. And please don't ban my site. Thx. :D

Disclaimer: I did not go MOS last Saturday. Everything on top was fake. It never happen and will not happen. There is no gal wearing low cut. I didn’t keep looking at gals when out chiong-ing. And I’ll never agree to one night stand. I need to write that story to mislead pingsters to click this post.

Got to make this clear just in case someone pulls my ears tonight. Oh, I purposely said last Saturday evening because I was with her that evening. So I guess I’m pretty safe. Right? :D

The coolest thinkpad in town

Went to Sitex yesterday evening after work. PC shows are like pilgrimage for a IT guy like me. Even if it is at ulu Expo, also must try to go. (PS: Ulu for me cause I stay in Jurong) At least the return journey wasn't that bad because I got mobile broadband to company me. :D

It seems like laptop skin is in fashion lately. See quite a number of store selling laptop skin at Sitex. Expect to see more of such store for the next PC show.

We've all seen laptop skin for macbook. Roger from Shuffle-Art makes great macbook skin. Too bad he doesn't design laptop skin PC. Else I would have bought a laptop skin from him. Love his designs.

I got my laptop skin from a booth call Hipfill. Didn't note down their booth number, but they are somewhere in the middle of the 2 expo hall. They have a wide selection of skin for you to choose. And the best part is, they help you paste the skin on your laptop free. Cool. The guy have to cut trim the skin a little as the laptop skin too big for my laptop. He even clean my laptop surface before applying the skin. Great service. If you are getting your laptop skin this Sitex, I suggest you bring your laptop down to Hipfill and let their staff help you paste the skin. But do note that they only have one staff doing this. You might need to wait quite a bit if there is a huge crowd. I was lucky yesterday because there isn't anyone in the queue.

I settle for this simple black design since my laptop is black in colour. The effect is great. Love it. I think I have the coolest Thinkpad in town now.

Play and feed a hungry person!

Here is an interesting concept. For every correct answer, Free Rice will donate 10 grains of rice to United Nations World Food Program.

Playing vocabulary game and doing charity at the same time. Cool.

FreeRice has two goals:

1. Provide English vocabulary to everyone for free.
2. Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.

Whoever came up with this idea is a genius.

I've donated 1000 grains already. What about you?

Phone hogger

Got an email from a colleague regarding some errors in the system. Since it is high priority, I started gathering more information straight away. Halfway thru, my phone rang. It’s from the requester.

Requester: You know what is the issue right?
Me: Yes, I know.
Requester: The issue is *blah blah blah blah*

And she goes about explaining to me what happen when I already told her I know. Fine, just listen and see if I missed out anything.

Requester: This one very urgent.
Me: Yeap, working on it now.
Requester: When can it be done?
Me: Now is 12pm. Should be around mid afternoon.
Requester: Around what time?
Me: Around 3 plus.
Requester: This is very urgent leh. *blah blah blah blah*

And she starts to explain the reason why she needs it so urgently. Things like the top management need it for some reports stuff and whatever. I’m not really concern about why she needs it so urgently. All you need to do is to tell me that it is urgent and I’ll put down everything and work in it straight away. And it is not that I don’t want to be fast. But the thing involves a slow manual process of going thru the documentation to see what when wrong.

Halfway thru her explaining, I feel like telling her that I’m only able to get it done by 4pm now cause she keep going non-stop on the phone. But I didn’t.

The thing is, if it is urgent and you need the result fast, you should put down the phone as soon as possible so that I can start working on it. In case you are wondering, she is not an aunty. So young already so naggy liao, can’t imagine what will happen when she grows older.

Wednesday, November 28, 2007 - Something big on the way?

Got an email from the oldest Asia’s Young Entrepreneur Award nominee 2 days ago regarding

At the same time, we like to share with you that BLOG2u.SG will be taking over another Blog ad network service provider to aid us in extending this service regionally.

Do bear with us as we are in the midst of 'housekeeping' both services (thus the quietness over the weeks) and working with more partners to give a more comprehensive coverage that brings values to the advertisers and bloggers.

Then next moment, he is up at KL with 3 meetings back to back.

Is something big going to happen in the blog advertising industry? What is he up to this time? World domination? Haha. I guess we will find out soon.

Oh ya.... The voting for Businessweek Asia’s Young Entrepreneurs Award is still on. Vote now!!

MDA Senior Management Rap made it to Techcrunch

Congrats to MDA! Their rap made it to Techcrunch. WOOHOO!!!!!

In case you don't know, Techcrunch (Note: Not Techcrush) is the 4th most popular blog on Technorati. Good job guys. Just like what MDA's Director for Broadcast & Film Development Man Shu Sum sang in the rap:- "Singapore content, on an international stage". Indeed....

So what's next? US Billboard?

On a lighter note, decayonnet was being mentioned on yawningbread. Wow. :D

Life is fragile

Recent events reminded me that life is very fragile. You may be alive one moment, and gone the next. Just like what happen to the 5 dragon boat rower. Who would expect that race is their last. Well, that is life. You never know when you are next in queue.

Couple of weeks back, a colleague of mine fainted in office and was admitted into hospital. I heard that he has some acute bleeding in the brain due to cerebral arteriovenous malformation. As of now, he is still in hospital. Although his condition has slightly improved, he is still unable to talk. His family members created a facebook group to keep everyone updated on his progress and pray for his speedy recovery.

I don’t really know him personally. I only remember liaising with him once or twice a few years back on some work issue. I’ve seen him several times in office but never spoke to him. I wish he would get well soon.

Life is fragile, treasure every moment while you still can.

Sometimes, I’m worried that I might just die or went into coma suddenly without warning.
What will happen if that day comes? Will anyone setup a facebook group for me?
Who is going to update this blog for me?
Perhaps I should create a word document in my laptop with instructions on what to do if I suddenly die or went into coma. Things like my blog login ID and password so that someone can help me update everyone on what happened.

(Wah ciao. Going to die liao still think of blogging! Siao ah!)

MDA Senior Management Rap was inspired by KRS-One?

I don't know who is KRS-One. But saw this video clip on one of the forum. I'm sure the chorus sound familiar to you. I bet that horrible rap is still repeating itself in your head.

Don't worry. This video clip is by a professional rapper. Although I don't really know how to enjoy rap music, but it sounds a lot better that the MDA rap. (I want to say that there can't be anything worst than the MDA rap. But I'm always afraid that another civil service group will proof me wrong)

KRS-One - Step Into a World (Rapture's Delight)

Yes yes y'all, ya don't stop, KRS-One, rock on!
Yes yes y'all, ya don't stop, KRS-One, rock on!

MDA Senior Management:
Yes yes y’all, we don’t stop, get creative, can do, rock on!
Yes yes y’all, we don’t stop, get connected worldwide, rock on!

Interesting. MDA said "Get creative" in the rap. Now... How creative can they be?

Crazy Woman attaches 7 N95s on the car exterior

This is one of those things that normal people won't be doing. Or rather, cannot afford to do.

Imagine, 7 N95 attached on the exterior of your car. Who got 7 N95 to begin with? Even if you have 7 N95, would you be crazy enough to attach it on the exterior of your car?

OK lah, she is not crazy. It's Nokia telling her to do that. And the 7 N95 doesn't belongs to her. So why not? I would have done even worst if the N95 doesn't belongs to me. Perhaps drive a car over it, while recording the process using Qik. (Hmmm.... that is a good idea. Wondering if Nokia would send me a N95 for me to do that.)

But still, I find the thing they do a bit far fetched. The site is interesting. But perhaps they can do something closer to reality. Wondering how many more days to the next 14 days?

Asking for it

When MDA release that horrible Senior Management Rap video clip, it seems like they are asking everyone on the internet to wack them by doing a parody. So someone fired the first shot.

Not bad for a start. But I'm sure we can do better. Too bad I don't have any video editing software. I got an interesting idea. lol.

Well... guess they are asking for it.

Your son's name is Robert'); DROP TABLE Students; --

Saw this joke on NTT's blog. This got to be the most geeky and brilliant comic I've ever seen.

My fave is the one where the son's name destroyed the entire database.. Maybe because I'm dealing with database everyday at work, that why I can connect with the joke better.

Who would name their son "Robert'); DROP TABLE Students; --"? Is it possible to have such a name? How do you pronounce it?

Anyway, this comic is full of things that by right won't occur in real life. But imagine if that name is allowed, it will surely create a mess in the school database. Did you catch the joke? I was laughing in office when I saw it. I forward to a few of my colleagues, some of them didn't catch the joke until I explained to them.

This joke is about database SQL. For the uninitiated, let me try to explain some basic SQL.

For adding record (for example Students table), the syntax is usually like this:-

INSERT INTO Students (Name, age, address) VALUES ('DK', '27', 'Singapore');

Imagine if that guy's name is added into the database. The insert statement will look something like this:-
INSERT INTO Students (Name, age, address) VALUES ('Robert'); DROP TABLE Students; --', '23', 'xkcd');

That will break the SQL into 3 parts.
The first part will return a insert error cause insufficient input entered.
INSERT INTO Students (Name, age, address) VALUES ('Robert');

The second part will delete the entire student table in the database.
DROP TABLE Students;

And the last part will comment off the remaining syntax so that the command can be executed without errors.
--', '23', 'xkcd');

Clever right? Who would have thought of that?
Anyone going to name his/her son Robert'); DROP TABLE Students; -- ?

Owns the media, rules the world

I'm always amazed by some of the article on the newspaper. Especially this article from Today regarding the MDA Senior Management Rap

Notorious M.D.A.

Rap video by agency's head honchos surprises with its 'fun' approach to promoting Singapore's media industry

Thursday • November 22, 2007

Christopher Toh

Alright, stop, collaborate and listen,

MDA's back with a brand new invention.

Rap videos for the peeps, y'all.

That's what the senior management at the Media Development Authority (MDA) have come up with to deliver their message about the future of Singapore's media industry.

The four-and-a-half minute Senior Management Rap video features practically everyone from chief executive officer Christopher Chia to chief information officer Yeo Chun Cheng and media content director Amy Chua.

The video spells out, complete with rap slang — in the vein of rappers like 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Notorious B.I.G. and Kanye West — their work plans and visions for the future of Singapore's media industry.

Chia, for example, raps: "They call me CEO, hear me out everyone. My aim, a vibrant media hub for the city. Singapore-made content to be No 1 media choice and jobs for everybody."

It was originally made as a fun video for a staff conference earlier this year, but staff response was so good it was included as an extra in their innovative annual report — which came in the form of a thumb drive.

"The idea for our Senior Management Rap is to share MDA's vision for the media industry in a fun and engaging manner," MDA's communications director, Cassandra Tay told Today. "Most importantly, it showcases the capability of local media industry."

"Just because we are a government agency doesn't mean we cannot have some fun," agreed Man Shu Sum, MDA's director of broadcast and film, who appears as a Mafia-like character in the video.

"We are dealing with media people talking about media content with lots of new ideas, so the presentation has to tally with what we are doing. And, hopefully, people can accept that it comes from a government agency."

The video was filmed by TV production company threesixzero Productions, with the "rappers" doing their thang against a green screen, and the visuals added in later.

The music was written by Bernard Teo of local rap band, Chou Pi Jiang, and lyrics by Mohd Sharin, with some input from MDA. The video took about a month to do.

"I think all of us enjoyed doing it," said Man. "It turned out quite fun and interesting."

Nobody expected anything to come out of it until Peter Ho, head of the Civil Service, flagged it out as a good example of clear signalling and leadership during a civil service convention.

The MDA received so many requests about the music video that they have uploaded it onto their website (

"It's quite surprising. But they're quite sporting," said Sharil, a marketing executive who watched the video. "They're the last people you'd expect to do this." Added tech support executive Daniel Hock: "I think it's quite entertaining. Although some bits didn't quite rhyme, it was a good effort."

In response, Man said they "didn't expect it to draw so much attention".

"We are delighted that the music video has helped to raise the profile of our media talents," said Tay.

"Not only is it produced by a local TV company, the song is written by a local musician — TV and music being two key media sectors we will be promoting. We will continue to explore creative ways to stay connected with our stakeholders and promote our media industry," he said.

So, will MDA release more music videos to get its message across? "I think we should have new ideas every year," said Man. "I don't know what's next. We'll see."

And in the words of the Senior Management Rap: "Yes, yes, y'all, we don't stop. Get creative, can do, rock on. Yes, yes, y'all we don't stop. Get creative, worldwide, rock on."

It reminds me a saying that whoever owns the media rules the world. The media is powerful. A dead person can become a living person. A black cat can become a white cat. If you own the media, you control what you want people to think. No matter how bad that Rap is, you can still write until it seems like the next best thing after The Slim Shady.

But perhaps someone forgotten that the media can no longer belongs to one person.

And that if you say the person is alive, there will be tons of people out there trying to proof that the person is dead. And if you said the cat is white, there will be millions of pictures showing that the cat is indeed black. And if you said they rap better than Slim, well..... just look at the responds in the blogs.

Welcome to the new media, MDA. Censorship doesn't apply here. If it does, then these blogs surely won't make it pass your scissors.

Sorry for not linking to all the blogs that talks about this issue. There are just too many out there. I'm still looking for a blog that give positive comments about this video clip. Yet to find any.

Heng Li Lang, Acting Director of Strategic Planning Group said in the Rap that "Market trends, that's like my very best friend". I wonder if she see the amount of negative feedback they got. One thing for sure, they don't know what's the real market trend is.

To add on, a phrase in the article made me feel even more disturbed. "It was originally made as a fun video for a staff conference earlier this year" You mean you guys actually spend so much money and time on something that was originally meant as a fun video for staff conference?

Makes me wonder...... Did we pay too much for TV and Radio license fee?

Coldplay - What If

Coldplay - What If

What if there was no lie
Nothing wrong, nothing right
What if there was no time
And no reason, or rhyme
What if you should decide
That you don't want me there by your side
That you don't want me there in your life
What if I got it wrong
And no poem or song
Could put right what I got wrong
Or make you feel I belong

What if you should decide
That you don't want me there by your side
That you don't want me there in your life

Ooh ooh-ooh, that's right
Let's take a breath, jump over the side
Ooh ooh-ooh, that's right
How can you know it, if you don't even try
Ooh ooh-ooh, that's right

Every step that you take
Could be your biggest mistake
It could bend or it could break
That's the risk that you take

What if you should decide
That you don't want me there in your life
That you don't want me there by your side

Ooh ooh-ooh, that's right
Let's take a breath, jump over the side
Ooh ooh-ooh, that's right
How can you know when you don't even try
Ooh ooh-ooh, that's right

Oh - Ooh ooh-ooh, that's right,
Let's take a breath, jump over the side.
Ooh ooh-ooh, that's right,
You know that darkness always turns into light.
Ooh-ooh, that's right

MDA Senior Management Rap (Contains some disturbing scenes)

I think MDA needs to come up with new film classifications for this video. This video clip is beyond R21 rating.

Warning: The film is not suitable for anyone below the age of 21 23. Contains some disturbing scenes.
Watch at your own risk. You have been warned.

Strange. Did MDA submit this clip to their own censorship board? I bet there wouldn’t be anything left after it gone thru the censorship board’s scissors.

The video was produced by local production house Threesixzero Productions.
It enlisted director Daniel Stevenson from Australia and the music was written by local composer Bernard Teo.
The lyrics were a collaboration between songwriter Mohd Sharin and MDA officers.

Can someone explain what message are they trying to convey thru this video? How much taxpayers’ money is wasted on this video?

And how come nobody step out and say "Boss, I think its not a good idea. You all look like clowns in the video."
Either the staffs hate the senior management and want to see them make a fool out of themselves. Or they are afraid to tell their senior management that they look like clowns. Why didn't anyone stop them?

Are they trying to outdo the Malaysia’s information minister’s joke?

Yes yes y’all, we don’t stop
Get creative, can do, rock on!
Yes yes y’all, we don’t stop
Get connected worldwide, rock on!

Indeed very creative. They remind me of the P65.
So what’s next from our highly paid government?

他跟我玩! 我打给Stomp!

Someone uploaded another video clip about the TPY incident where a Ang Moh who hit 2 girls

The previous 2 video clip are provided by the victim. But this new clip seems to be from another person. I didn't mention in my previous post that the victim is a star blogger at Stomp. After all, star blogger also human, still need to queue up to buy chicken rice also. So why need special mention?

But it seems that being a star blogger does have some benefits.

Like activating the entire Stomp crew to help out when in trouble.

She gave me the feeling that she thinks she can use Stomp to take revenge on the Ang Moh because she is a star blogger at Stomp.

"他跟我玩! 我打给Stomp!"

Isn't that nice? Star blogger personal Stomp hotline. I wonder how many calls does Serene get from their star bloggers everyday. Poor gal.

Goodbye Wireless@sg

Wanted to call this entry "Why wireless@sg has failed?". But I guess I don't have the rights to declare that it failed. Besides, only a handful of my friends encounter problem with wireless@sg frequently. A large number of people still think that it is very reliable. Maybe they are plain lucky. Or they didn't use wireless@sg as frequently as us. I've complained enough about wireless@sg. I rest my case. If you are interested, you may check out how many times I complaint about wireless@sg.

Anyway, this entry is not for debating whether wireless@sg has failed or not. Instead, this entry is to let everyone knows that I will not twitter to complain about wireless@sg again.


Because I've just gotten myself a mobile broadband plan from Singtel. WOOHOO!!!!
No more searching for wireless@sg connection. No more cursing and swearing whenever wireless@sg disconnect me.

Recent events made me realise that I can't depend on wireless@sg anymore. And some of the things that I'm about to embark on requires me to be connected while on the go. I can't let wireless@sg ruin my opportunity. And I'm left with no choice but to subscribe to mobile broadband. Goodbye wireless@sg. I have enough of your nonsense.

I know most people are using M1 mobile broadband. But I choose Singtel because they are cheaper. On top of that, as a Singnet user, I’m given additional 30% discount. And the best part is, they give me the modem for free. (12 months contract)

The only thing about Singtel's mobile broadband is that their modem only includes 1 short USB cable. They don't have the useful 'L' shape USB. I wonder if they sell this in Sim Lim Sq.

Oh, this entry is posted using Singtel mobile broadband at HDB hub. There is Wireless@sg connection here. But I lazy to connect. My friend tried wireless@sg here and complained that it's very laggy. So he took out his M1 mobile broadband. Seriously, how to work using wireless@sg?

Hmmm.... perhaps I should try surfing net on the train later. Wonder if it is stable when on the move.

Update: Tried surfing on train. Network still very stable. Didn't notice any drop in speed. Cool stuff. Am loving it. :D


Surcharge can resolve every single issue

Our great leader has spoken again. This time, they decide to resolve the long standing issue on the supply and demand of taxi. It is about time they address this issue. There has been lots of complaint on errant drivers who refuse to pick up passengers. MP Seng Han Thong, who is also the adviser to the six-affiliate Taxi Operators' Association suggested:-

Taxi companies need to impose surcharges at taxi stands in the CBD (central business district) and Orchard Road areas during peak hours, and at lobbies of hotels, major tourist attractions and nightspots. Only location surcharges can address the problem of balancing the demand and supply of taxi services at specific places and time, while allowing taxis to charge a more affordable rate at other places such as HDB estates and neighbourhood shopping malls.

*worship our great leader*

This is indeed a great solution to our suffering. Add surcharge. Why didn’t anyone think of that earlier? Look, adding surcharge can ensure that the demand for taxi at key places can be met. Isn’t that great? Suddenly I feel that I’ll never have any worries when trying to get a taxi.

In fact, our great leader has just shown us that surcharge can resolve every single issue in life.

Imagine the following:-

Not enough taxi at key location? Impose location surcharge.
Not enough taxi during peak hour? Impose peak hour surcharge.
Too many cars on the road? Impose road usage surcharge. (aka ERP)
Too crowded on Train during peak hour? Impose train peak hour surcharge.
Not enough seats on train? Impose train seat surcharge.
Not enough buses on the road? Impose bus surcharge.
Bus badly maintained? Impose bus maintenance surcharge.
Lift too dirty? Impose lift surcharge.
Toilet too dirty? Impose toilet surcharge.
Birth rate dropping? Impose childless surcharge.
Aging workforce? Impose retirement surcharge.
Orchard road too crowded? Impose shopping surcharge.
Too many people queuing for donut? Impose queue surcharge.
Cost of living gone up? Impose cost of living surcharge.
Power consumption gone up? Impose power surcharge.
Water supply running low? Impose water surcharge.
Too much air pollution? Impose breathing surcharge.
Too much noise pollution? Impose talking surcharge.
Too many people farting? Impose fart surcharge.

In fact, all the ministries can do a generic solution for our daily problems:
Impose *insert fancy name* surcharge.

Look at the wonderful things that surcharge can do. It can truly do wonders. I’m sure that the taxi issue will be fully resolved once the location surcharge kicks in. If not, we can always add more surcharge until the problem has been resolve. Remember, everything can be resolved using surcharge.

Indeed a wise leader. No wonder we are paying them so much money.

Cloverfield (1-18-08) - New trailer

Remember I blog about this unknown movie by JJ Abrams? A new trailer has been released recently. Cool stuff. You got to watch it.

Blair Witch Project meets War of the Worlds. But the concept is interesting. I guess if there is alien or monster attacking a city now, the people would most likely be doing the same thing, recording the event using video cam. I know some people might even do live blogging as the alien/monster is attacking the city, Hahaha.

It seems like the movie name is confirmed as Cloverfield.

Can't wait for the movie. It's going to be a great show.

PS: I think the poster is going to look great. Feel like buying one and hang it in my room.

The remake of 'Face on the table'

I usually do my exams revision in the university library. It's much better than doing revision at home where there is TV, Internet, food and bed to distract me. Exam period the only time when I use the library.

It is also during this period when I took the infamous 'face on the table' photo. And since this might be the last time that I'll ever need to mug for an exam (if I pass my exam), I guess I should do a remake of the 'face on table' photo.

Looks almost like the original one. Then I notice that I was actually wearing the SAME T-shirt that I wore 2 years ago when I took that picture! Haha... what a coincident.

So which version do you prefer? I still think the old one is better. :D

Confident that I'll fail my exam

Never in my life have I ever walked out of the exam hall with so much confident that I'll fail my exams. Seriously. From Primary One all the way to Polytechnic year 3 and also for the past 3 years in my part time degree course. Never had such feeling like today. It was very bad.

All the topics that I revised didn't appear in the exam. I concentrate mainly on the topics that were in the revision tutorials and also some topics that I feel are important. None of the questions are related to those topic. Not a single one.

In fact, after reading thru the exam paper, I even flip to the first page to confirm that I got the right exam paper. Shocked that none of the questions that I studied appeared in the exam.

I should be celebrating now if I didn't do so badly for the paper. After all, it is supposed to be the last exam in my entire lifetime. Looks like it is not the last. Now I'm wondering if I'll need to retake the whole entire module or just retake the exam. Either way, it's going to delay my degree. And to make things worst, this stupid module is only offered in the July semester. Which means I can only wait till Nov 08 to retake the exam. That will delay my degree for ONE WHOLE YEAR.

Feeling damn shitty now.

OK, I know that I haven't seen the results yet. But even a optimistic person like me thinks that I will fail, I think my chances of passing is pretty slim.

Anyway, no point ranting too much about this. It's over. All I can do now is pray that the bell curve is able to save me. I doubt so, but then, praying is free. So no harm trying.

Ready for the big night

Oops... Sorry, wrong picture. Not this kind of big night.
(Got this picture from the NUS toilet cubicle door. Looks like NUS students got a bigger night than me)

Anyway, tonight is the big night for me. I'm going to take the last exam paper in my entire whole life TONIGHT. (Provided that I pass this module) WOOHOO!!

I'm excited. Am so close away from freedom. No more exams for the rest of my life. No more studies. No more boring lecture. No more shitty lecturer. Celebration!!

Wait..... I haven't finish my exams yet. Shit...... still need to revise for that last paper. Sianz.... Going out for breakfast then go to my school library for the last revision.

Spartans! Ready your breakfast and eat hearty... For tonight, we dine in hell!

Dad was asking me if I got any intentions to take Masters after my Degree. He must be kidding. I have enough of studying already. No way am I going to take Masters. Over my dead body!!!

Businessweek Asia's Young Entrepreneurs award

I was browsing thru the nominees for Businessweek Asia's Young Entrepreneurs and found quite a number of familiar faces. Interesting to see so many entrepreneurs around me. Make me feel like starting my own business. Haha.

Congrats to Uzyn and Henry for making into that list. Wah.... Businessweek leh. Don't play play. I've been a user of and bookjetty for some time already. Nice to see both of them in the award.

Wait.... Paddy is in the list too. This guy has made it to almost every media in the world from CNN, CNBC to WSJ. Now businessweek? OEI, give others a chance lah. Stop hogging the news.

And how come Paddy is in the Asia's Young Entrepreneurs Award? He still young meh? At 32, he is the oldest nominee for the award. 32 years old still can consider young meh? You got to be kidding right? Define the word "Young".

OK, maybe they included him in the list because he sings "Forever Young" by Alphaville every morning. His wife told me his singing is horrible. But who cares? We choosing entrepreneurs here, not singers.

OK OK, jokes aside, Paddy is a brilliant entrepreneur. His got a chain of companies under his belt like Petbak, Bak2u, PhoneBAK, Verey I and GadgetTrak. And most recently, a blog advertising company call Blog2u. Among the 25 nominees, I think Paddy is the most deserving winner.

Plagiarism is the sincerest form of flattery

After the "Attack of the clone", we see another website trying to copy the success of This time, it is innit from Nuffnang.

I always feel that plagiarism is the sincerest form of flattery. And this time, it's by a commercial entity. I bet Uzyn must be jumping in joy now.

Something interesting. The top 10 most popular entry does not have a time frame unlike where the top 10 is valid for 24 hours. Which means it is hard to knock someone down the chart once they made it there. Cause we all know that people usually click on the top 10 entries.

But judging from the title of the top 10 entries, I doubt it would be an issue.

Update: After more playing, I discovered that it's not really similar to In, whenever you click on the entry, it's counted as a "Pong". But for innit, you need to click on the "Nang it" it count as a "Nang".

In another word, not much flattery. Sigh.

What is wrong with the Ang Moh in Sg?

After the trishaw incident, we get Ang Moh at TPY bullying students. Perhaps we should sometimes remind them that Singapore is no longer a colony.

I don't know what exactly happened here. You can read the full story at her blog. (Which I can't seem to permalink. Try look for the article on 15 Nov 2007.)

My bag hit the woman accidentally and i didnt even realize that my bag hit her. She then used her umbrella and attacked me from the back. Now put yourself in my shoes. If someone attacked you from the back, will you talk to the person calmly or will you fight back immediately? Moreover, i did not even lay a finger on her at all, yet she was accusing us (me and my friend) for hitting her frist. And hey, i DID apologize to her even after she hit me! If apologizing could solve the matter, i wouldn't be in such a sticky situation now.

Plus, bumping into one another in a crowded area is something extremely common. And i did not deliberately bump into her. It's an accident! If she dont wanna get bumped into then i think she should really just stay at home.

Yes, this might be just one-sided, then why did they couple refuse to talk when the police arrived? Worst, they refused to give the police their identification! Now, will a normal person dare to rebel against the police? If i am not wrong, they got arrested on the spot.

Whatever i've said is true. Whether to believe it or not, it's up to you.

You will be the judge.

Interesting, you can actually refuse to give your identification to the police. Really? Wow. Didn't know singapore is such lawless.

Don't really want to add any comments to this incident since most of the information we got is from one side and the video only shows the arguement after the actual incident. I choose to believe her as I don't see any reason for her to lie. Anyway, judge for yourself.

But I'm glad that Singaporeans actually stand up for fellow citizen at times like this.

PS: Coincidentally, I bump into an Ang Moh bully yesterday at a supermarket. We stared at each other for a couple of seconds before I rush off to catch a movie. I guess I'll choose Stardust over helping his parents teach him a lesson on manners. Perhaps more on that in another entry.

Save the script writer, save the world

The Writers Guild of America is on strike. At first, I didn't think much about it as I didn't expect it to have much impact. That was until I heard that they changed the last few minutes of season 2's 11th episode to give it a proper ending just in case this is the last episode. And to make things worst, the filming of Heroes: Origins will be put on hold.

This is bad. The last time they went on strike was in 1988 and it lasted for 22 weeks. I hope this strike won't last too long. It's going to affect the film industry. And most importantly, it's going to affect Heroes.

Found this clip which explains what the Writers Guild of America wants. They aren't asking too much. Just a slight increase residuals for DVD and new media which I think they deserves it.

Save the cheer leader script writer, save the world.

We have the erection in Malaysia

Zainuddin Maidin, Malaysia's Information Minister, claims that their goverment allows erection every 5 years during an interview with Al Jazeera News.

YA! It's a illegal protest because we have the erection in Malaysia. It's no-no point on having a protest! We are allowing to every erection... every five years never fail! We are not our like, like Myanmar, not like other country. And, and you are helping this. You Al-Jazeera also is helping this, this forces. The, you know, these forces who are not in passion, who don't believe in democracy!

The full transcript can be found here.

OK, perhaps I shouldn't interfere with other's internal affairs. But allowing erection every 5 years doesn't seems very democratic to me.

PS: I know he meant election. But I have to agree that it sounds like erection. Our expensive "Mai Hum" joke lose this this big time. Perhaps we should consider employing him to entertain us instead. Our pay is much better. We sure need this kind of foreign talent.

Bo Davis apologised

Saw a posting by Bo Davis apologising for what they had done.

I have already sent 2 apologies out on you tube. But I'll apologise again. As I don't think many people have seen it.

When I look back at the video it does look very bad. I offer my sincerest apologies to Mr Lee, his son & everyone that has been offended. It was very disrespectful and insensitive to make fun of an old man. If you knew us you'd realise that we are actually nice guys.

On that night we'd had a few beers (slightly drunk), and needed to get back to our hostel. So we began walking up the street looking for a taxi. The trishaw driver was waiting at the side of the road and suggested we take his taxi. At first we declined as we wanted an actual car, but he insisted we got in. I thought ok, I'd never been on one before and told him our destination. He said $10 which was fine.

After setting off I did start laughing, I was a little drunk and thought it was funny how slow we were going. I did actually ask the driver if I could peddle before we got the camera out.
So after travelling hardly any of the distance agreed, I could see that it was stupid for us to continue and said we should get out. We'd only travelled around a quarter of the agreed distance so I at the time I thought $5 was reasonable. Bearing in mind that we'd just come from Thailand where drivers initially charge way over the odds and it's customary to haggle the price.

I don't know why Mr Lee is saying we didn't pay, when in the end we gave him the $10. I know I was laughing but I wouldn't dream of not paying for the ride! That would be unforgivable. The camera cuts out before we actually leave the trishaw but I can guarantee everyone that we paid the $10 before we left.

My upmost apologies again go out to Mr Lee and his son. If it were my dad with 3 young guys laughing at him, I'd want to find out who they were and speak my mind. But can I just confirm again that we did pay!

Best Regards

I understand that some of you are till angry with the 3 guys. But I guess it is time to move on. The trishaw uncle isn't angry with the 3 fellow. Bo Davis has apologised. The 3 of them got what they deserved. Try googling for "Bo Davis UK" and you will get what I mean.

I think this incident is a small sneak preview of what the new media can do. After the video was posted on, tons of blogs and forums begin talking about it and condemning the 3 fellows. The incident was so widely talked about in the new media that it was even being reported by both local and international newspaper agency.

It is impossible to ask the 3 fellow to fly back to Singapore specially to apologise to the uncle. It’s the thoughts that count. They have already apologised on the internet. And most importantly, they admit to their mistakes. I guess we have more or less achieved what we wanted. Lets hope this sort of incident won’t happen again. But if it does, I’m sure the new media will stand up for our fellow countrymen again.

Its time to move on.

I wish they stop wireless@sg

I hope IDA gets to read this.

I’m not joking. This is not another sarcastic blog entry by my evil twin brother. I really wish they would stop wireless@sg. The quality of this free service is getting from bad to worst. I used wireless@sg 3 times this week. For 2 occasions, I was able to connect to the network but couldn’t load the login page. For the other occasion, I was able to login to internet but keep getting disconnected every 5 to 10 minutes. Wireless@sg is just too fustrating to use. It is totally not reliable at all. Someone asked me what do I expect from a free service. I guess we can't really expect too much. Yes, it is a free service. But what is the point of being free when the service is unusable? I rather IDA stop this whole wireless@sg project. Revert all the hotspot back to the paying model that we had in the past. At least the wireless hotspot are more reliable back then. I rather pay than put up with this useless thing.

I was a paying customer for wireless hotspot before wireless@sg was here. At a small fee of $10 per month, I never have to worry if the network is available or not. The network is reliable and I don’t remember any occasion when I couldn’t logon to internet. Now that all the paying hotspot has been converted to wireless@sg, you can’t even pay to get a reliable hotspot. Yes, they do provide premium account where you pay to surf at faster speed. But how do you surf at faster speed when you can’t even load the login page? I was a paying customer for wireless@sg premium service for the first few months when it was launched until I was so fed up and decide to cancel the service. It just isn’t worth paying for a network that is unreliable.

I guess I should really go apply for M1 mobile broadband. I cannot afford to have unreliable network if I want to work on the move in the future. At least M1 mobile broadband is more reliable than wireless@sg.

Oh, btw, advance happy birthday to wireless@sg. I still remember the media hoo-ha one year ago when you are born. The media is still saying good things about you. I guess either they never tried using you or they are still in denial. I’m totally disappointed with wireless@sg. And I'm not the only person complaining about it. Saw several people complaining about wireless@sg too. Most of them have switched to M1 mobile broadband.

IDA: Look, if your great wireless@sg is so good, WHY would anyone still want to apply for M1 mobile broadband? Think about it.

This entry is written on MS Word at MW Starbucks on 9 Nov 2007, 7pm. Wireless@sg is unavailable, as usual.


Angel in disguise

Sometimes, its the little nice gestures by complete stranger that warmth your heart.

I was looking for a parking lot last Saturday when I saw this Indian gentleman walking towards his car. Knowing that he is about to leave, I waited nearby for his parking lot. He walked over to the side of my car and waved at me with a parking coupon in his hand. He asked if I needed a parking coupon as he is leaving and has torn extra 1 hour worth of parking coupon. I got the parking coupon from him after thanking him.

It's a small gesture. But I appreciated it greatly. He could have just thrown the extra parking coupon away. But he gave it out to a complete stranger. I was kinda surprised by such kind act. I couldn't think of words to thank you enough.

To the kind gentleman at Jurong West St 25 carpark on 10 Nov at around 1:30pm: Thank you so much for the kind gesture. You made my day. This song is for you.

Crisis Management

One of my colleagues from another team noticed an error in the system. The error will cause impact to some of the customers. As usual, the relevant parties are informed about the problem. Even though there has been no customers complains yet, everyone had already begin the crisis management.

When crisis like this happen, the operations department will usually be in charge of the overall coordination.
For the IT department, our role is to fix the error immediately to prevent more customers from being affected. Once the error has been fixed, we will scan thru the entire database for the list of affected customer. This list is submitted to the top management.

While the IT department is working on fixing the error, the customer service department is being informed about this problem to prepare them for customer complaints. Standard FAQ and instructions on how to handle customer complains and queries are being send to all customer service officers.
Account Managers are also informed so that they can be prepared in case their customers approach them regarding the issue.

At the same time, the top management is having discussion of the impact of this error, preventive measures and the possible of some good will gestures to customer like writing off charges.

All these are being done before the first customer complain comes in.

After some investigation, we discovered that no customer has been impacted by the error. We were lucky this time round. That was a close shave. And so, everyone went back to do their usual job, until the next crisis pops up.

Sometimes, I’m glad that my first job is in such a big company. You can really learn a lot about business operation in a big company like this. The things I’ve learn here will be useful to me in the future. Crisis like this can happen no matter how many checks you have in place. Reputation is everything. Losses can be recouped easily in the future if your reputation is still intact after the crisis. Everything can be lost except reputation.

Small companies can also learn a trick or two from the big companies. Although small companies don’t have much manpower, the fundamental in business is the same. Instead of many people tackling a single issue, small company will have one or two person. But regardless the size of the company, the role is still the same when a crisis occurs.

Fix the problem. Minimize the impact. Repair the damage.
Protect your reputation at all cost.

Happy Deepavali

Happy Deepavali to all my Hindu readers. (Not sure how many are there) Well, if you are not Hindu, you can also be happy on Deepavali right? :D

All my Indian colleagues are allowed to leave office early yesterday to prepare for the celebration today. This has always been the company policy. Malay colleagues are also allowed to leave early on the eve of Hari Raya.

But when it comes to Chinese New Year, everyone is allowed to leave early. NOT FAIR! Why is it that the Malays and Indians have their special half day off on the eve of their holiday but when it comes to CNY, everyone leave early together? We Chinese should also have our special half day off while the rest have to remain in office and work.

OK OK, I’m just kidding only. Hee hee...
Happy Deepavali to all. :D

Bring your own what? Bag? - 6 months later

Forgotten that today is the first Wednesday of the month. Its Bring Your Own Bag day again. I bet some of you have already forgotten about this. It has been more than 6 months since they implemented this scheme.

I've blogged about the Bring Your Own Bag Day 6 months ago. That entry won the 2007 Best Citizen Journalism Post award. The results wasn't very impressive. 3 people bring bags vs 24 people who didn't in 5 minutes. But ZeeZee commented that it doesn't matter how positive the response is. At least there are 3 people


I happen to be at Holland V Cold Storage today. Didn't know it is BYOB day until I walk pass the cashier. Since I'm already there, why not do a follow up? We know that most people wouldn't bring their bags. But I want to find out if there is any significant increase in the number of people who bring their bag.

So I find myself a good spot at the entrance. Did the counting from 8:10pm to 8:15pm. And below is my results.

Bring your own bag 2 - 21 Never bring your own bag

Surprisingly, the results is almost similar to the results I got 6 months ago. No significant changes. Kinda disappointed. Was hoping there is an increase in the number of people who bring their own bag.

But the good thing is we are still having this event on the first Wednesday of every month. Lets hope that we would see a better results next time.

Worker Party = Wayang Party?

Congrats to the workers party. They finally got themselves a hate blog. Well done. It’s not easy to have a hate blog specially dedicated to you. I want also don’t have. 50 years of hard work by the party finally paid off.

There is an interesting article about someone pasting poster scolding Worker Party near their recent 50th anniversary dinner venue. The best poster must be the one with a picture of Malay puppet show with the tagline "Stop the WAYANG KULIT now. What has the WP done since GE2006?"

hhmmm... Good question. Well, they can’t even hold a cycling event at ECP to begin with. What can they do?

I was reading the ongoing discussion in forum. Someone counter question “What has the PAP done since GE2006?”

Well... I say: Minister pay hike, ERP hike, GST hike, Transport fare hike, CPF withdrawal age increase....

Did I miss out anything? PAP did so much for Singapore after GE2006. Yet we see some heartless jerks asking such question! *PUI* You should be ashamed of yourself. They’ve done so much for us. Still not enough? You mean you still want more?

Oh ya... They EVEN DID hip hop during Chingay!

DK on TechCrunch

Wow, what a week. After being interviewed by The New Paper, I was being mentioned on TechCrunch. They were talking about the $1 admin fee imposed by Nuffnang and reference my blog entry about this issue.

Many thanks to Uzyn and Cobalt Paladin for informing me that I was being mentioned on TechCrunch. I was at Millenia Walk's coffee bean watching movie on my laptop and enjoying a cup of Mocha Latte when I got the twitter message. I could have gone to TechCrush TechCrunch straight away and impress the beautiful lady sitting next to me. But wireless@sg is, well, doing what most wireless@sg does. Unable to connect to internet even though I'm connected to the network. Sorry... I side tracked. Don't get me started on wireless@sg....

It's an honour to be mentioned on TechCrunch, the 4th most popular blog on Technorati. And I'm really flattered when they referred me as a 'prominent blogger'. I'm floating already. AAAAHHHHH!!!! CELLING!! *BANG!!*

No lah, I'm not a prominent blogger. Still very far from it.

Another 5 second of fame this week. At this rate that I'm going, I think I'll reach the 15 minutes of fame in a lifetime quota very soon.

I remember someone told me that only 2 Singapore companies have been mentioned on TechCrunch so far. Well, I guess we can consider Nuffnang as the 3rd now.

Update: The article has been translated to Japanese. Konichiwa!!!

Moron drivers with high beam on a rainy day

It was raining heavily on my way home just now. The rain is so big that I can't see far while driving. This is the time when I drive at speed which I don't usually use on an expressway. Slow. REAL slow.

And it is during this kind of bad weather conditions when you can see clearly who are the moron drivers. Its totally understandable if you didn't keep in your lane at this kind of weather condition. Its really hard to see the lane marking at night with heavy rain. So I don't blame drivers that can't keep to their lanes. I just try not to have any car by my side while driving and keep at least 1/2 lane distance when overtaking. Well, I don't really get much chance to overtake since I'm also going at snail pace.

I'm really fine with drivers who can't keep in their lane on such weather conditions. Can understand.

The moron drivers are those who on their high beam during this kind of weather conditions. I can tell that they can't see the lane clearly. Nobody can. That why they on their high beam, hoping that they could see the road clearer. But did they notice that it makes no difference with the high beam on? The reason why you can't see the lane marking clearly is because of the rain, not the darkness. So even if you use stadium floodlight, you still can't see the lane marking.

And the biggest problem with high beam is that, you will blind the eyes of the driver infront of you. The high beam lights will shine into the car infront of you, reflect on the mirror and shine directly on the driver's eyes. Common sense tells you that you shouldn't turn on high beam when there is a car infront of you. Well, common sense isn't really common nowadays. And during this kind of weather conditions, the last thing you want is your eyes being blinded by high beam. Seriously, someone could get killed.

To that black Mercedes Benz along PIE towards Jurong near Jurong Town Hall Road at around 11:15PM on 4 Nov 2007: The reason why I slow down is because your bloody high beam blinded my eyes. The reason why I tap my break VERY LIGHTLY twice is because I hope you know that your high beam is causing great discomfort to my eyes. And the reason why I hold on to the horn at you while you were overtaking me is because I want to let you know that you are a moron driver. I hope you know who you are. Cause I couldn't see your license plate clearly. If I could, I would have spend my time writing a letter to LTA and TP instead of this blog entry.

I'm really glad that I reach home in one piece.

What are these pingsters doing?

Qn: What are these pingsters doing?

Ans: A failed attempt to form the word ping while waiting for the cameraman to get ready during the recording of blogbuzz tv.

Check out our interview at Episode 7 & 8.

It still feel weird looking at myself on video and hearing my voice. DAMN.... is that my double chin?!?!?!


It only takes 20 minutes to reach any corner of Singapore

I was reading the forums when this article from India caught my attention.

Lee Kuan Yew told the minister that the land acquisition procedure for any developmental project is completed within two months and claims are taken in subsequent phases. "Congestion taxes on vehicles plying on busy roads are a routine course of action in Singapore. The maximum time to reach any corner of Singapore is 20 minutes as traffic is not allowed to flood the roads," he added.

Well, if you hear it from MM Lee, it got to be true. Why not? With Traffic Police escorting your car, everyone can reach any corner of Singapore within 20 minutes. What? You mean you don’t have your personal Traffic Police to escort you to office everyday? Well, then it’s about time you find a job that give you such benefits. Don’t blame anyone if you take more than 20 minutes to travel.

And the traffic is never allowed to flood the road. The jam that you are causing every day is illegal. You are not allowed to flood the roads. So give way to the Traffic Police escort.

Come to think of it, have he ever tried traveling from Tuas to Changi?
Or from City to Yishun via CTE during peak hour?

DK on The New Paper

Got an email late Tuesday afternoon from a reporter at The New Paper. She wanted to do an interview with me regarding the 3 ang moh bullying the uncle incident. Guess she bump into my blog entry.

I'm impressed with their speed. I replied her email on Tuesday at around 5pm and the interview was printed on the Wednesday edition.

OK, here is my 5 seconds of fame.

I'm that 27 year old blogger.

Well, actually the interview was much longer. But due to space constrain, they have to remove most of the part and just print the essence of the interview. Anyway, here is the full interview that I did.


When did you see the video?
I saw the video clip on Saturday afternoon at I believe the clip was posted on youtube since Aug 07 but only spotted by Singaporeans lately.

How did you feel when you saw it?
I was very angry when I saw the video clip. The poor uncle is trying to make a living here. The 3 of them squeeze into a trishaw meant for 2 person and made nasty comments about the speed of the trishaw. On top of that, they refuse to pay the uncle, giving lame excuse like they have just been robbed.

Which part of the video were you most affected by?
I think the thought of them having the cheek to post this video up on youtube makes me very angry. I can understand if they say that they are drunk at that time since the video was taken around Clark Quay area. But I'm sure they are very sober when posting this video on youtube. This is really too much.

There are a lot of comments about how this is an example of white supremacy. Do you agree that this incident occurred because of the tourists' superior attitude?
I think that these are just black sheep. I don't think we should generalize racial group here. White supremacy are things of the past. The only white supremacy that exists is when we give them special privileges.

Would you have felt so strongly about it if they were not Caucasians?
The race doesn't matter to me. It's their actions that angered me.

How do you think such incidents can be avoided in the future?
I don't think there is any way we could avoid such incident. I do hope this is not a common thing. But even if it is, there is really nothing that we could do. After all, they didn't commit any crime.

The guy who posted the video on YOUtube said that they were insensitive, but didn't think they were bullies. What do you think of this reply?
3 person squeezed into a trishaw meant for 2, make fun of the uncle and refuse to pay up after that. On top of that, they post the video clip on youtube. If this isn't bullying, then what is? Don't they feel sorry for their actions?

If you saw him in Singapore again, what would you say or do to him?
What can I do to them? Nothing. I'm only hoping that their families, friends, colleagues, employers and fellow countrymen could see this video clip. Shame on them.


Here is the rest of the article.

So, now we know that B0Davis is indeed one of the 3 ang moh in the clip. His real name is Bo Davis and he has a facebook account. The most sickening thing is that they still don't feel sorry for their action.

I tried searching for his profile but facebook returned me 500 plus profiles. Don't really know which one is he. Anyone found him?

Quite a number of blogs and forums are talking about this incident and Bo Davis now. I hope his families, friends, colleagues and employers will see this video clip when they do a google his name.

Bryan Adams - Back To You

Bryan Adams - Back To You

I've been down - I've been beat
I've been so tired - that I could not speak
I've bin so lost that - I could not see
I wanted things that were out of reach
Then I found you and you helped me through
And ya showed me what to do
That's why I'm comin' back to you...

Like a star that guides a ship across the ocean
That's how your love can take me home back to you
And if I wish upon that star - that someday I'll be where you are
I know that day is comin' soon - ya I'l comin' back to you

You've been alone but ya did not show it
You've been in pain when you did not know it
You let me do what I needed to - You were there when I needed you
Mighta let you down - mighta messed you around
But ya never changed your point of view
Thats why I'm comin' back to you
