I have to admit honestly that I have been neglecting this blog site of mine, for probably one of the longest time. Come to think of it, when I first started blogging here back in 2007, I was making 20-30 posts a month – which was significant, compared to now (1-2 blog posts per month). However, I continue to keep my policy of ensuring a post is being made a month without fail, for the last 7 years. This record remains intact.
Most of the posts are of not great value, but I find it fun writing them. However, this is not entirely true for all, as I do notice some significant traffic driven to certain posts that I never knew would actually be of interest of the public. Let’s have a look at the top posts over the last one year.
Today will be the day where the English football titans for the last 10 years will meet head to head at Stamford Bridge. The Blues currently tops the league table with 73 points over the Red Devils who are at 65 points, but played one game more. This is not just special just for the 2 biggest football clubs in England, but goes back to the history where Jose Mourinho meets his ex-manager, Louis van Gaal, when he used to be his first-team coach back in the 1990s.
At this point in time, I don’t see Chelsea slipping up and they are likely to win the Premier League, unless something drastically happened, where mathematically, Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City all stands a chance the clinch the title.
Well, for tonight, let’s see who gets the upper hand.
Former Prime Minister, Mr. Lee Kuan Yew, remains critically ill at the Singapore General Hospital (SGH), since admitted on February 5th, 2015, due to severe pneumonia. According to AsiaOne news, his condition has deteriorated further since admission.
His wife passed away five years ago on October 2010.
Singapore celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. The road for the last 4 decades was tough, as our forefathers started building the nation to be one of the developed countries in the world. There is the world-class Changi Airport, one of the busiest shipping port, multi-racial living in harmony – all not to be taken for granted.
To commemorate this special day, the Singapore government has announced 7th August 2015 to be a public holiday in Singapore for this year.
Minister Heng Swee Keat, Chairman of the SG50 Steering Committee, said “It is a time for us to show appreciation to our pioneers, to strengthen our ties as one big Singaporean family, and to celebrate all that is special, all that we love, about our home.“
Happy 50th Birthday, Singapore!

I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year in 2015!
Well, it has been an extremely long time since I blog on my site, and I absolutely feel guilty about it. I am still trying really hard to keep to my commitment to have at least a post written every month. So far, I have kept that record intact since August 2007.
With some time now, I thought of running some regular updates on my WordPress software, upgrading it to version 4.1. Then, I realized that there were several other plugins to be upgraded as well. Taking this opportunity, I simply proceed to write a short blog.
I really do need to keep up with my habit of writing my blog, only then it will keep my interest going. So, hopefully, you (my readers) may get to see more interesting stuffs coming along the way. In the meantime, it’s preparation for Christmas Day in 2014!
A surprising email came into my inbox today – I was invited to join Ello. After several weeks of waiting to try out the entirely new social network, I finally could get my hands on what it claimed to be the next generation, simple, beautiful & ad-free social network.
Without much hesitation, I signed up for it and got myself an instant account. Like other social media networks (e.g. Twitter, FaceBook), I could add friends. Ello made it really simple for me by displaying some of their favourite (recommended) profiles to add (see screenshot below).
This is the first time using Ello, so I am still trying to figure out how to best make use of this social network for my daily stuff. Nonetheless, the 2 best things that come along with it are: 1) no ad, and 2) privacy, by not selling personal data to third parties. Anyway, the bottom line is, with an account, I can invite up to 10 people – so if you are interested, please feel free to contact me.
