    As of today, we decided to close down Old Charm. A bit of history of Old Charm. It started as a hobby, my wife and I love collecting those vintage items (I don’t know why, but we still collecting them). So we thought that it may be a good idea to rent these vintage items for people who needed it for pre-wedding photography session or a conceptual annual dinner and etc. So we hop on the idea and created Old Charm. Well, both of us are really bad at socialise with people, but we still went ahead and network with people and do this business. It was a good business, although tired (Maybe…

    For most people, success in life would be the achievement of stability. A stable job. A stable marriage or family. A stable income with reasonable expenditures. If that's the case, I would be right there in terms of life's success. By all accounts, I should be happy, or at least content. Instead, I fight everyday to make sure I don't explode, and some nights, I feel that I am fighting a losing war. There comes a point in the life of someone like myself that fighting on at all costs doesn't pan out. This is perhaps the worst thing I can admit to myself, given that I have made it my personal…

I have been trying to write a letter for my unborn kid for the past week. Handwritten that is, to be kept for her along with the other words of wisdom, until her 18th birthday. It's a cool sentiment that some part of my brain scoffs because it believes I'm going to offer those words before she reaches 18 anyway. It doesn't matter. It's a plan. Which is a damn sight more than I have at this moment. Thing is, I'm terrified and…

    Dear Papa, It has been ten years since you're gone. Never imagined I would be missing you everyday for ten years, but I guess I did. :) Ten years have passed, but the feeling of not having you around anymore is just as raw as it was ten years ago. A lot has happened. A lot of milestones achieved in these ten years. I'm a little disappointed that you were not around to witness it, nor to taste the fruits of your labour. But that's the cards we were dealt with, right? So we live with it. The supermarket business that you started more than twenty years ago has been making a lot of progress…

It took me one good hour to make find a parking spot 1km away from the venue, and another good hour just to make my way through the queues into the 5 huge exhibition halls playing host to the MATTA Fair. If Malaysians wanna travel, they will spend - and not even the weak ringgit is gonna stop them! Despite the rising popularity of lesser-known "hipster" destinations, travelling to Europe remains one of many…

One such exception, is Lee Kuan Yew. When I was 7, I saw on my father's desk a biography of Lee Kuan Yew. "Who is that, papa?" "He is someone incredibly extra-ordinary. Thirty years ago, Singapore and Kuching were the same but he developed Singapore so much. No one could ever have imagined. Read, and you will soon know, son."

    I remember when Malaysia first got the LRT back in the mid-90s. There were four stations where you would never get any cellphone coverage – Ampang Park, KLCC, Kampung Baru and Dang Wangi. These were the underground stations.  Then by ’98 or ’99, Celcom got execlusive rights to implement mobile base stations for the underground. This was great for Celcom customers (which I was back then – before switching to Maxis, and finally landing with DiGi). It was exclusive, and it meant you were sending SMS messages or speaking while others were out of reach.  By now,…

To think, at the cashier’s desk when we made the purchase, we were wondering why we couldn’t just use a Global Blue refund card (useful in most of Europe).  At the point of purchase, you are given a receipt with a barcode. When you visit the airport, just follow a touch-screen based interface that says you accept the conditions (i.e. this stuff is for export/you’re not Singaporean), swipe your passport (yes, it reads it all very well), say when you entered Singapore…

They are also great space savers (which was the main point) and are usually not as noisy. That said, they could hardly take over the computer you are working on right now, and once they are out of the box, you will need to find…

It is believed that the present Museum is situated on the original site of Guan Chang built by Cheng Ho, the Ming Grand eunuch, about 600 years ago. His fleet of several hundred ships sailed 7 times to the Western Ocean from China between 1405 and 1433.

That location can provide a distinctive JB feel (not just one of 1,000+ malls all over SE Asia that really are all basically the same). Peppering it with small shops and art galleries and food and museum and street art is great. And obviously what is desired is a nice walkable place that has history.

    Make Malaysia My 2nd Home (MM2H) is the program started by Malaysia in 2002 to encourage expats to stay in Malaysia by offering a long term (10 year) visa. The MM2H program is a very good idea to aid economic development in my opinion. It brings in foreign currency which is very useful: both from fixed deposits and spending by expats. The currency help is especially helpful right now. The Malaysian Ringitt has collapsed in the last few months to just 3.57 MYR to the US $ now. It was stable at about 3 a couple years ago and slowly declined to 3.3 over a couple years before the recent collapse.

    10 Jan 2015 | 6:32 am
    Straits of Malacca is a funnel-shaped narrow waterway of 800 km long that connects the South China Sea and Andaman Sea.

    25 May 2015 | 7:54 pm
    I get asked pretty often about how I personally invest, and perhaps to the surprise of many people, property is not my top favourite when it comes to investing my money. I like putting in money into things that I can exert some degree of control over so that I can do something to make my money grow (instead of just sitting back and hope for the best a la stocks, bonds and mutual funds). For this reason, businesses are my favourite form of investment – especially those which I personally own. As far as I am concerned, property comes in close second after businesses as my preferred…

    So here’s the story so far if you’re not here since the beginning: we are launching a property portal which is rather different from whatever that’s out there today, and here’s how it’s going to be different:- it’s going to have lots of listings posted by lots of agents together with lots of banner advertisements placed by lots of developers. Booyah! I’m just saying that in a jest, of course, because the truth is that the world doesn’t need another lame property portal, and I am damn sure ain’t building one even if I’m forced at…

    As our portal (GoodPlace Homes) is launching in less than a month (read the back story here, and then here), every minute of my waking life is now spent doing either one of these things:- developing content or writing code. Indeed, things have been quite overwhelming recently that I even started having weird dreams about my work, like, writing a blog article entirely in computer code1. Indeed, the clock is ticking, and the pressure is piling up. And like it or not, the blog will have to take a backseat until after the launch. Don’t get me wrong – I’ll still be posting up…

    If there’s one thing which I absolutely loathe going to (apart from the dentist and my ex-boss’ nephew’s Sunday morning piano recitals) it has got to be startup events. I often get invites to go to those things, and yes, sir, I despite them with great passion, and let me tell you why. While often disguised as “knowledge sharing” and networking events between startups, these events usually quickly degenerate into a giant circle jerk of dick measuring contests between groups of young, impressionable wantrepreneurs. For some reason God knows why, people want to know…

    What the house of sculls used to look like in the old days.Talking about the name Borneo, images of thick jungles and fierce head-hunters will commonly come to mind for many people, especially in Western countries.

    Given a choice, men prefer the not so handsome guys and not the ugly women to be their friends. They are not bothered with a man’s appearance but they do a lot, a woman’s AS A woman, if the majority of your supposedly good friends are men, you probably should be more grateful than the rest of the women who have more female friends than male ones.

    If the fortune telling we checked with is anything to go by, many of us would not be still around today.TO BE fully human, we must believe in something ... anything, not necessarily that it should have anything to do with religion or some philosophies.And not that it should be feng sui (geomancy), astrology or fortune-telling. In fact, not many of us believe in those and we normally do not understand why other people stick to their guns about such things.Well, perhaps it’s not that we don’t believe. It’s more accurate to say that we only want to believe what we choose to believe. We…
