Beware of timeshare scams in Singapore

I received a call from this lady named Linden (who has a name like that?!) from Travel Asia agency to attend a 1 hr presentation on ‘Travel Asia’ at Orchard Tower #04-24 and thereafter I’ll be given a FREE 4 star hotel stay and air tickets to 4d3n Thailand/Bali/Macau/HongKong travel package, organised by some tourism board. The number she called me from was 67332495 and later on from her mobile at 81692279. Linden called me on a Tuesday and insisted…

Sex always sells – another day at work

From the title, different people from different walks of life will probably already assume that this blogpost is going to head towards a certain direction. But well, read on. So today at work, the chief programmer and I were at it again, going through the boring flows and things that go wrong in an iPhone app that we are creating. And then this conversation took place: Me: “Ok I am going to send you a powerpoint that indicates all the…

Reflecting on 2011

I looked back at all my years of blogging and I thought I wrote about resolutions (of making them and then failing to fulfill them) on the last day of every year! Er, didn’t seem to be the case. Is it a thing of the past already? I mean, to make resolutions. :P Anyway, first, reflecting on 2011, it’s been hell of a joyride. Key highlights include: ♦ Picking myself and my life up after my 7 year relationship failed…

I'm a little doubtful of love

A cheating husband here, a gambler husband there, broken marriages everywhere. I’m a little doubtful of love. Aileen and Samuel dated for 9 years and finally tied the knot last Saturday. I’m so happy for them. At the church wedding, her pastor quoted from the Bible: In a word, there are three things that last forever: Faith, hope, and love; But the greatest of them all is love. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 I think it takes a great amount of faith…

The annual october birthday dinner

So, it’s October again. So quickly time has passed me by and it’s soon to be my birthday again. The ever-reliable, ever-sweet ex-kraftig gang (ex-colleagues) organised a meetup to celebrate Kristine, Andrea and my birthdays. We headed to Tawadang at Suntec Convention Centre for dinner & drinks. I had an event on that day, so I only joined them for drinks later on. Check out the pics! Even Mike and Cherry joined us! :) Thanks Ellen for organising! And thanks…

A little fantasy to travel to somewhere beyond the horizon

It is not often that one gets asked “Where in the world would you like to travel to?” But say one day, someone comes to you and offers you this wish, where would you go? Which country/city would you want to go? I’ve dreamt of going to so many places so often that it has become a blur in my mind. But if I had one such wish granted to me, where would it be! I want to be in…

About Social Media & Our Lives Today

I just wanted to have a short post here to reflect on how social media like blogs, facebook, twitter, etc have transformed our social lives today. Today, if I want to know about a new product, I either tweet a question about it, or do a quick search for blogr reviews or ask about it on my facebook wall! The kind of responses I get are pretty damn awesome fast & genuine too! Just like that day, I was seriously…
