This morning, I have just received 2 spam calls from “999”. How do I know? Very simple, this is Singapore… those callers talked to me in Mainland China mandarin, as though Singaporean is illiterate.
Anyway, the numbers I have captured are:
- +65 6086 5999
- +65 6869 4999
Notice the “999” at the suffix of the numbers? Well, I’ll add to the list if I uncover more of such callers. Happy spamming back 🙂

I would like to take the opportunity to wish everyone, who takes time to read my blog (be it intentionally or by accidentally) a Happy New Year in 2016!
Thanks to one of my uncles, who shared a link with me on how to invest for beginners. Although I have to admit that it is all too new and too complex for me to understand, I still feel it’s a good reading for those who are beginning on their path for investment.
The author is Ken Chee, with the focus on “How to Build a Multi-Million Net Worth as Simple as ABC“. Published locally (in Singapore) in 2014, this has made its way to the internet. Below is an excerpt of the e-book.
“… Driven with that in mind, Ken transformed 8 Investment from a private investment business with $0 start-up capital, into a public-listed company [8I Holdings Ltd (ASX)] with a market capitalization in excess of S$100,000,000 within 6 years…”

On 24th of September, I happened to drop by one of the showrooms in Singapore, just to peek at how Executive Condominium looks like. The crowd was unbelievable huge and it seems that Singaporeans are quite loaded, instead of seeking a shelter from HDB (Housing Development Board), they are upgrading to move into condominium.
Nevertheless, I took the opportunity to just browse around and took a snapshot of the price list how much it would cost for a unit… (click on the thumbnail on the right to see the details). Nowadays, an EC could easily go beyond S$1M!
Did anyone realize that there is a change in the Google logo on the home page of the world’s most popular search engine? I am not sure how many of you are aware or have spotted it, but I find that the font size is a little different that usual Google logo.
Firstly, it looks thinner. Secondly, it gives user a very ‘simple’ look (although technically nothing has changed in terms of colour). I guess, it is the way of simplifying the ways we do things.
Singapore Elections 2015 is coming up round the corner, with the Polling Date decided on Friday, September 11th, 2015. Two weeks away, Singaporeans are recommended to check their voting eligibility here. It will exciting to see what comes up between the ruling party, People’s Action Party (PAP) and the opposition parties.
