I thought this was a cute “maintenance” notice.

COE obtained!

Our Kia is on the way…

Damned Either Way

It’s ironic how when Singapore gained independence from the British and was subsequently kicked out of Malaysia, naysayers said we were doomed to fail because we were such a tiny country. Now that we’re successful, people say that success was only possible cos we’re so small – as if hard work and good governance don’t […]

Had my department Chinese New Year dinner just now. Was seated next to our Chief Operating Officer. During the dinner, the conversation somehow steered to the pressure cooker education system in Singapore. My COO who’s from Holland was very against it.

Windows Phone 7 Series

Random Photos – Jan 2010

Here’re some random photos I took in Jan 2010. My wedding band and engagement ring.  I was testing the macro mode of the Nokia X6’s camera and I must say I was impressed!   There’s this Ipoh Hor Fun place at Maxwell Chambers.  I can’t remember the name now – the business card’s in office […]
