Singapore’s 50th National Day of Independence #SG50

Yesterday, 9 August 2015, was the 50th anniversary of Singapore’s independence as a city state. As it was mentioned in one of those national songs we have from back in 1987: There was a time when people said that Singapore won’t make it, but we did. There was a time when troubles seemed too much for us to take, but we did. We built a nation, … Continue reading Singapore’s 50th National Day of Independence #SG50

Durian Mobilisation 2015: Durians For a Cause

I was invited to attend the 3rd edition of sold-out Durian Mobilisation event last night at the communal hall at Marine Drive. Generally, I don’t take on many events that are not concerts or music entertainment related stuff but it’s impossible to say “no” to durians. Let alone a seven variety course of durians curated by Dr. Leslie Tay of ieatishootipost.sg and co-organised by the Singapore Kindness Movement. … Continue reading Durian Mobilisation 2015: Durians For a Cause

A Valentine’s Day with #SAF50atVIVO and Irene Ang

Given the amount of things that I get up to, I actually forget that I had attended a certain concert/event. I’m not kidding. LOL. So if things left an impression in my head, it … Continue reading The joven.at.heart List of 2014’s Best and Worst

Life, Death and The Legend of Corpse Herding / Walking (赶尸)

I have been feeling a little down because of the news of my ex-colleague. There are stuff sitting in my inbox that’s waiting to be posted but I just haven’t been feeling up for it. I’ll get around to it soon. I just need to mope around for a bit more. For the last few days since the tragic news broke, I have spent some time reflecting … Continue reading Life, Death and The Legend of Corpse Herding / Walking (赶尸)

RIP Richard Shaw

I heard yesterday that Richard Shaw, an ex-colleague that I used to work pretty closely with, had drowned in a tragic accident on Sunday, 2 November 2014. Needless to say, I was shocked and saddened by the news. Then I started to look back at the times we had worked together, the amount of pain and bullshit that had happened and we had to go through during the course … Continue reading RIP Richard Shaw
