Thank You Apple!

Whoa! I didn’t expect the sudden influx of questions and concerns from my anger-filled post about my melted magsafe adapter! Anyway, I’d like to take this opportunity to answer all your questions for everyone’s future reference so you all don’t have to trudge through hell for a simple adapter replacement. 1: What’s the update? After…


My Macbook Adaptor Melted!

UPDATE (Dec 19): Apple Tech Support have replaced it free of charge. Read this entry for details. And the Apple dealers (since there is no Apple Store in Singapore) are making me pay 180$ for it because I don’t live in the US, where Apple users that face the same problem are given a free…


Happy 1 Year, Nanyate.com!

December 12, 2008 / Daily Life / 13 Comments

It’s been 1 year since my first post on Nanyate.com. It was meant to be a personal blog, where I would just rave and rant my thoughts. But that didn’t happen. It ended up becoming a blog where I tailor my entries to multiple audiences. And I probably did more grammar checks per entry than…

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!…


Singapore Files: The Tissue Culture

October 15, 2008 / Culture / 8 Comments

One of the strangest sights you’ll ever find in Singapore food courts is the rows upon rows of pocket tissues obnoxiously placed on empty desks or seats. If you’ve never been to Singapore, you’ll probably think these tissues are for your use. Not in a million years. These pocket tissues, occasionally replaced by umbrellas, are…
