Hello Apple

It’s late so this will be a short post. Just to share that i bought an iPad 2! Still not an Apple fan though. Biggest gripe is that i can’t control simple things like deleting certain photos from my iPad without deleting it from my laptop album. What i do like is its portability. Will […]

Slipshod Work

I was told by a trade credit underwriter today to ignore a list of typos i found in the policy cos they don’t affect the policy’s coverage, terms and conditions. As this policy was not placed by me, i left it to the relationship manager to decide whether to insist on correcting the mistakes or […]


Just watched Fringe on Channel 5. Feel so sad for Olivia. For her pain when Peter couldn’t recognise the alternate her from the real her. Sigh. How sad. Hope this isn’t the end of them. (This is my 1st attempt posting from the iPad. Haven’t decided if I should get one too. Hmm…)

Ok.. so some kids were cuter than others… Obasans in kimonos Saw a ceremonial dance. […]

Japan, Nov 2010 (Part 4)

The great thing about Tokyo is that there are so many facets to it.  There’s the vibrant city life with all the lights & shopping, and laidback neighbourhoods like Daikayama where there’s this really delicious waffles place, and Canal Cafe, the most scenic cafe I’ve been to ever! (Captions are for the photos above) Daikanyama’s […]

This post has been long in the making.  I know I’ve said a few times that I will eventually post my Japan photos… but never got down to it.  Problem is that I took loads and loads of photos and after uploading them to FB, it just became too much effort to post the photos […]
