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

COMMENT: Copyright Infringement by XINMSN

I don’t do this often but I felt that I should because of the reaction I got from some people who saw my initial tweet and then I realised that there is such a lack of knowledge and understanding of what is Copyright and how to respect it. So here’s how it began: So xin msn also googles for sj fan pics and crops the logo/watermark… … Continue reading COMMENT: Copyright Infringement by XINMSN

May The Dead Rest in Peace and May The Living Live Well

It’s been a really crazy week; 3 plane disasters in the last 7 days. This is madness. Never in my short life have I seen such a frequency of aviation incidents. It all started earlier this year with the disappearance of MH 370 on 8 March 2014, which is assumed to have crashed in the South Indian Ocean. To date, the place wreckage has yet to be … Continue reading May The Dead Rest in Peace and May The Living Live Well

Held Hostage by the FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 Fever

So the World Cup is back on again. Must say that I haven’t been following much football or F1 for ages because I didn’t subscribe to the sport channels any more on cable. Anyway, at the last minute (after the first day actually), my brother had a change of heart and decided to give in to the exorbitant fees (S$112.35 + S$10.70 activation fee) charged … Continue reading Held Hostage by the FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 Fever

What I Should Have Done After a Car Accident While Overseas

Some of you might know what I was in a relatively minor car accident when I was on holidays in Seoul/Jeju Island about 3 weeks ago. I thought it was a minor accident because we’re just shaken up by the bump and no blood was spilled by anyone. And it turns out that I had completely trivialised the entire thing so I’m writing this up so you guys … Continue reading What I Should Have Done After a Car Accident While Overseas

Jeju Island Adventure: Driving on The Other Side of the Road in Jeju Island

Initially, we wanted to get a guide to take us around Jeju Island for our trip there but there was none available so after much consideration, we decided to go with renting a car to self-drive on Jeju Island. We worked out the Math, it was way cheaper. We rented the Kia Morning, the smallest and cheapest car (like most typical cheapo Singaporeans), from KT Kumho (ENG … Continue reading Jeju Island Adventure: Driving on The Other Side of the Road in Jeju Island

[Travel Rant] Packing My MacBook Pro and Forgetting the Charger

Blogging from Seoul. Yes, again. XD I consider myself to be pretty well travelled and I generally am pretty good with packing my luggage at the last possible minute or for the really last minute trips that I tend to make. However, contrary to my usually habits and practice, this trip to Seoul is something that I have actually planned for ages and booked more than … Continue reading [Travel Rant] Packing My MacBook Pro and Forgetting the Charger

[RANT] The Sewol Ferry Sinking Incident and the Surrounding Media Frenzy

I wasn’t planning on blogging about the Sewol ferry sinking incident but as usual, I’m reading stuff online and it stirs up certain thoughts and sentiments that I decided to break away from the fan girl type posts to write something more serious and somber. So if you didn’t know, a cruise ferry with about 475 people on board capsized and sank somewhere near Gwangmaedo … Continue reading [RANT] The Sewol Ferry Sinking Incident and the Surrounding Media Frenzy

The Missing Plane that is Flight MH370

You should have heard the news of how Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 has been missing for days now. This incident is truly intriguing. How can such a huge object disappear without a trace? I mean if it had crashed, we should have found some debris by now right? There are like 34 aircrafts and 40 ships with sophisticated equipment (I presume) searching but no one … Continue reading The Missing Plane that is Flight MH370
