“I can read Wikipedia”

“I can read Wikipedia”

Reading Time: 1 minute I was alert to @litford’s tweet on a search term that was catching on. Curiously, I tried the search term “I can read Wikipedia” out (on both Google.com and Google.com.sg). I did not click I’m Feeling Lucky. I’m Feeling Lucky loads the first link of the search. Instead, I run the search. Guess what I found: Google just got bombed. For more information, visit this forum topic. To think that in my class, we have just covered racism, stereotypes, prejudice…

Delivery screw up by vPost

Delivery screw up by vPost

Reading Time: 4 minutes Today, I received the Loop Pointer I have bought from USA. There was a screw-up in the delivery method, in my opinion, though. My family was not at home to receive the parcel. And when my dad came home at 2.30pm, he found the parcel on the floor, beside the house gate. Yes, thank you so much vPost. Now, let’s say you are the delivery company, what would you do? There is no one at the delivery address. Do you…

Trip to Bandung – Day One

Trip to Bandung – Day One

Reading Time: 3 minutes End May, I went to Bandung, Indonesia on a choir trip with SMU Chamber Choir. It was an eye opener. Singapore 30 May 2010 – The time was 9.30am. I arrived at Changi Airport 30 minutes late. I was not the only one, but still it was bad to be late. Everyone was gathering and feeling nervous. By being late, I was just adding oil to the fire. In the departure hall, we had our last moments of fun before…

Awkward Silence and NS

Awkward Silence and NS

Reading Time: 2 minutes Yesterday, we had a beneficiary visit to a certain primary school. It was not the first time we went there. Anyway, that is not the point of this post. It was the conversation during the car ride to Ang Mo Kio for a LAN gaming session. Girl A, asking all 4 guys in the car, “Do you have girlfriend?” A chorus of “No.” came. Next question was directed at Samantha, “Do you have boyfriend?” “Yes.” One of us then said,…

CommunicAsia 2010 – The Skype Experience & Giveaway!

Reading Time: 5 minutes Once again, I have to thank Daphne from XPR for the chance to interact with Peter Parkes (as seen explaining the features of Skype on TV) at the Skype booth at CommunicAsia 2010. Just in case you do not know who is Peter Parkes, he leads the social media function at Skype as part of the global communications team. He flew down to Singapore all the way from London. Skype was there to showcase their latest developments so far. From…

Spoof: North Korea vs Portugal (North Korean Broadcast) 2010

Spoof: North Korea vs Portugal (North Korean Broadcast) 2010

Reading Time: 1 minute Recently, a spoof video has surfaced on Youtube on a purported North Korean propaganda of the 7-0 loss in the last North Korea against Portugal match. It is dumb that people are believing it to be real, judging by the comments on the site. Well, it is not. Anyone can come out with their own subtitles, just like what people do with Hitler videos. Anyway, just for laughs, here is the video. After you peeps have your share of laughter,…

Sing and Dance!

Sing and Dance!

Reading Time: 1 minute I was bored doing my homework, so I decided to take a break and just watched the Facebook news feed ran by. Two Youtube videos came out. The first one was hilarious. It is two Korean girls singing a song in karaoke style, with a twist to it. I have to thank Nathalia for the laughs. The second one took my breathe away. Honestly, it is this kind of people performing who wavers my resolve to stay in choir. Enjoy…

Expected outage

Expected outage

Reading Time: 1 minute WordPress 3.0 is out! That  means I have to upgrade my blog engine. In fact, it is begging for me to upgrade now.  I have set up, somehow, two domains for this blog. It will take time and effort to undo it and redo it. So do expect outage that lasts for a day anytime during this weekend. I am also deciding whether to edit this theme or edit the new default theme for a new look. Oh well….

[Youtube] 天黑黑

[Youtube] 天黑黑

Reading Time: 1 minute 天黑黑是一首家喻户晓的歌。我第一次听这首歌的时候是中一,中二的时候吧。那时,颜永成学校合唱团为了比赛而学习。 孙燕子借用了一些词而唱了她的天黑黑。 周一,thinkfamily.sg发出了一份关于孝道的短片。在这短片里,这首歌被用来作为一个桥梁,进入了父亲和奶奶的回忆。对许多人来说,这无疑带来了很多的感情。请慢慢观赏。 P.S. My grasp of Chinese is rudimentary. So please, if you find any mistakes, leave a comment. I have tried to use Google Translate as minimally as possible since the translation is not always not accurate.
