It’s been in internal testing for several months, and some agencies in the UK have been testing it since Feb. It’s Ajaxy, and very much like the desktop software [...]
Last friday, one of my personal hero passed away. He wasn’t a marketer, an entrepreneur or a motivator. Still, Time magazine did put him in the list of “100 Most Powerful People In The World” in 2008.
This man was Tim Russert. There are many reasons why I loved staying up on Sunday night (here in Singapore), to watch “Meet The Press” at midnight. But one reason stood clear … I wanted to watch a Giant at work.
Before I sign off, here are 7 lessons I learnt from Tim Russell …

The following was a speech I gave last night at Pungol Toastmasters Club …
It stemmed from my own experience last weekend, where I took an impromptu visit to Malaysia. At 11PM at night, I took a bus to JB bus stop. Found the next bus to Kuala Lumpur. And wasted one crazy day in [...]

Over at Calvin’s blog, there’s an interesting discussion going on about “Would You Rather Be Happy? Or Rich?”

Honey, I’m home!
Yep, I know I’m been away for a long long time … I missed you too.
The reason I’m away is that I’ve taken a new job. Well, technically I’m a consultant and it’s a consulting relationship … but the client prefers me to work 9 to 7 … so it feels [...]

(If you live outside of Singapore, then you ought to know that it’s the start of the new year for chinese – and it’s the year of the pig. We had a very long weekend, Saturday to Tuesday [...]
3 Quick Things … Random Updates, POE & Daddy Talk
1. Random Thoughts …
In the middle of writing this post, I went down to pick up dinner. Now, near my office there’s two kinds of eating places. There’s the ordinary working man “Food Court”. And there’s a Ah-Beng “Food Centre”
I didn’t really know the difference in [...]
I have two friends – A & B.
A & myself go to a class conducted by B. Be is an unusual character. For strangers, he is rude, obnoxious and meaningless. For his friends, he is the greatest inspiration of life’s wisdom … seriously.
Over the past weekend, I was talking to friend A. In one [...]

American scientists just found the first evidence that Elephants can recognize themselves in the mirror. For us humans, that doesn’t sound like a big deal, right?
But in the animal kingdom, that’s a very unique gift to have! Only humans, apes, dolphins and (now) elephants can look in the mirror and see themselves. All other animals [...]
“This is gonna be a quick blog … I’m on a coffee break between a meeting”
Have you ever felt out of place?
Ever looked around you and seen many people … but just not related to them?
Ever felt like you were meant for something greater than the ordinary people around you?
Yet, at other times … when [...]
Oh yeah … and on friday, I did something interesting and many of you will find it quite funny.
I was reading “Psycho-Cybernetics” … the self-image psychology that seems like the forefather of NLP … and something struck about self-motivation.
I see myself as a hunk, powerful, confident guy. But physically I’m fairly skinny. Kinda incongruent, isn’t [...]
