I got my hands on a Nexus One!

April 12, 2010 / Reviews, Technology / 15 Comments

There are Apple fanboys and Microsoft MVPs. I’m not poseur enough to be the previous and not geek enough to be the latter. But I’m an equivalent for Google. I rely on Google for just about everything, so getting my hands on a Nexus One review set is just effin’ awesome! Big thanks to Justin…

March 5, 2010 / Psychology / 23 Comments

I’ve wanted to say this for years but I was afraid that everyone would think I’m a lunatic, but I’m going to say it anyway because my interest for Pet Society has recently been revived: Rooms in Pet Society reflect a person’s state of mind. Now I’m no psychoanalyst so I don’t have the knowledge…

My boyfriend, my parents and my ex-housemates can all vouch for this: I am obsessed with cats. Before I go off to bed every night, I must get my fix of I Can Has Cheezburger and Cute Overload. And whoever is unlucky enough to be around me then would be coerced into sharing joys of…


Updates, Updates, Updates!

It has been a while since I last blogged about my daily life. Most of the time it’s because I don’t have much of a blogworthy life outside of work. But this time, it’s because I’ve been spending most of my time out, I haven’t found time to sit down to write. ๐Ÿ˜€ Company Plant-a-tree…
