Christmas Cards

November 14, 2008 / Daily Life / 7 Comments

Sorry for not blogging. I’ve had a beyond shitty week, from waking up at 4AM for work to even waging war with my Delifrance Egg Mayo Baguette (which I will leave for another entry). So shitty I was contemplating to gulp down a jug of Tiger Beer during dinner, which I later settled for a…


Sashimi Feast in Photos

October 26, 2008 / Culture, Photography, Reviews / 27 Comments

In an effort to get to know Singapore’s blogosphere, I went to a ping.sg (singaporean blogger community) dinner at a ritzy izakaya-style Japanese restaurant called En (えん). Met some pretty cool people like Brainy Bimbo, Claudia, Leonard and HisFoodBlog; and had some pretty fresh sashimi! For those unfamiliar with Japanese food, go eat some now!…


New Theme: Torii (Alpha Release)

After I saw C-class designers copying my previous theme, I felt compelled to come up with something new. So here is something I created in less than a day. It’s nowhere as pretty as my last layout, but I tried my best given my time constraint! This theme is called ‘Torii’, which is the gate…

VROOM! Peeeeeewww! VrmmmmMMMMM! VrmmmmMMMMM! That’s all I’m hearing right now. My company recently sent me to the Singapore F1 Grand Prix this week to be a receptionist/sales person at the Media Centre. It’s an invaluable addition to my resume, although the hours long and the work tedious. It’s a wonderful opportunity to be part of history in…


Tears from the Ear

One morning in the subway, I almost cried. It was the song playing on my mp3 player – a Japanese song called ‘Motherland’ by a half-Korean half-African American singer, Crystal Kay. I’ve had this song on my playlist for more than 5 years, but I’ve never paid any attention to it. I always thought that…


Girl with a Guitar

Remember the beautiful Nanyate?! Guitar that looks like my layout? Well, here’s how it sounds with a guitar novice trying too hard to sing and strum at the same time: pretty crappy. But then what can you expect out of a S$99 (USD $70) guitar and someone who hasn’t sung in 5 years? The song…


Fat Fines: Japan’s New Law

July 8, 2008 / Culture, Opinion / 24 Comments

Japan has recently instituted a new law that fines employers that hire ‘obese’ employees or employees with ‘obese’ relatives. Men are required to have waistlines slimmer than 33.5 inches and women 35.4 inches. As I read that from the newspaper headlines last month, my first reaction was stunned silence. What happens to those who are…
