My First GovCamp

November 25, 2011 / Media Events, Technology / 0 Comments

I attended my first GovCamp last Friday. I couldn’t make it to the keynotes (which I heard where great!) but managed to sit through a few of the breakout sessions. For those of you who’ve not heard about GovCamp, it’s place for people to talk about eGovernment initiatives or how governments can use tech to…


What is the Meaning of Life and Other Thoughts

April 9, 2011 / Psychology / 17 Comments

I’ve always wondered what’s the point of roaming the earth to do crap you don’t really derive any pleasure from like studying or working. So much suffering is associated with living that you’re driven to find some sort of meaning to justify your existence — be it in the form of senseless partying, shopping or…


Why Web Accessibility is Important

I’m usually a bit more organized with my blog entries but this issue hits quite close to the heart, so it’s going to be more of a ramble this time.

Last night, I attended an interesting session at Hackerspace Singapore with other PR people and bloggers to better understand each other and the social media landscape in Singapore. Although no world-changing ideas came out of it, I think everyone learned something. For me, it’s that social media is like dough. It is what you make…


Resolutions for a New Decade

January 3, 2010 / Daily Life / 14 Comments

I don’t really believe in new year resolutions. I mean, if you wanted to make something happen, it doesn’t matter when you make it, as long as you follow through. But I thought I should just write this entry for a future self. More importantly, for you since I want to spread this positive state…
