SingTel sent me an SMS yesterday to inform me that all of its own postpaid mobile subscribers will get to enjoy free unlimited data bundle during Singapore’s National Day, on the 9th of August, 2014, as part of celebrating the nation’s 49th birthday. Of course, I am absolutely thrilled with it; thinking that I could watch endless YouTube on my mobile device (which never actually happened). What makes it even better was that, postpaid mobile subscribers who did not have a data plan bundle will also get to enjoy this promotion on this very day (p/s: special configuration is required)
Whilst this comes as a great news, I am kind of disappointed with Mobile One (M1) and Starhub; as there was nothing of that sort from these service providers. As a M1 subscriber myself (too), I think this could also come as a great opportunity to gain publicity, after gone through some bad events happening last year, to restore the consumers’ confidence. This goes to show that monopoly is about to return back to the Red Team, and things are going to get tougher (financially) for the Green and Orange teams.
Ok, telco aside, it’s less than 3 hours left for me to enjoy SingTel’s offer, I’m going to make the most use of it – especially, that my Starhub Home Broadband service has gone down once again…, happening as frequent as once every 3 days!

Bakery is one of my favorite types of food, particularly pork floss or chicken floss roll, choc au la pain, donuts, etc. a few days back, I had this craving and went down to Four Leaves bakery store to get myself a good meal.
So, do you like bakery too?
How time flies… I have been introduced to blogging, by a friend from the United Kingdom nearly 9 years ago; and since then, I have never stopped writing posts to keep my interest going. The only difference between now and then was the available time to allow me to blog – I certainly had more time then. It was only during recent years that work has kept me extremely busy. However, you can’t help it sometimes; it’s the job that pays my bill!
In the past, I would write over 10 posts in a month, blogging everything under the sun, ranging from politics to entertainment and financial outlooks. However, I find it extremely challenging to even create one post a month. Tonight is no exception, just that I felt so guilty to myself that I have been ignoring this little interest in me…, such that I decided to pen down my thoughts.

According to statement from Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), the use of laptops, tablets and other electronic devices is now allowed on Singapore’s national carrier, Singapore Airlines from the time of boarding until disembarkation, as long as there is no transmission of wireless or other data. In other words, these devices must be set to “Flight mode” during this period of time.
Such devices include, but not limited to, tablets, mobile phones, electronic readers, portable electronic devices and MP3 players. The new regulations took effect on 31 May 2014. Note, this may not apply to other airline carriers.
Effective July 20th, 2014, the Costa Sands Resort in Pasir Ris (Downtown East) will shut down its facility, after 20 years of operations. According to press release, NTUC said it will return the site to the Singapore Land Authority (SLA) and its 30 workers will be deployed to other roles within its organization.
Ever since I was a kid, I remember my parents bringing me to the NTUC chalet resort to stay for a couple of days. They were some of the most fun time ever, and stay-vacation wasn’t very popular at that time, but we thoroughly enjoy it. I even held one of my birthday parties at the NTUC resort.
Looking back, if the NTUC resort is no longer there; it will be such a loss to the public and families who would like to stay in Singapore during vacation period. NTUC resort offers this great opportunity to get-away. And, by the way… my personal thought, the East Coast one is never going to be the same.
