When I was still rather fresh in my career, someone asked me: So when is your salary going to exceed your wife’s? In a moment of pride, I said 5 years. And this has been on my mind ever since. Today, I am no longer bothered as much by it, even as I still feel… Continue reading Salary – Is it everything?
This is what started the chase. 15 years ago, I wrote an essay talking about how I eventually enter University. I was quite a naughty boy at that time, having “toughen up” from a series of getting beaten up in school. I was really just trying to be funny when I wrote it. It surprised… Continue reading Closing the chapter which took 15 years – From “Beng” to B.Eng
I made a comment on the viral post about making a police report on SMRT Feedback‘s post on the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. The writer claimed that Muslims in Singapore had been questioned if they can be impartial if they don the tudung as a healthcare worker. I don’t think such as claim has ever been made,… Continue reading Staying united as Singaporeans
So recently, I decided to make use of my security license and experience how it is like working as a security guard in Singapore. Here I will be sharing my experience.

It’s time to update my profile picture on Facebook just in case people thought I am still bald. At the same time, just sharing some thoughts on my mind. I have never been someone who needs people to agree with the action that I take. I think about it, I consult others, and I make… Continue reading Just some thoughts on my mind
I am currently on a hiatus from social media, and my phone will be turned off most of the time, if not all the time. The last time I did this was in 2017. Setbacks after setbacks have forced me to take a drastic measure, as it was increasing noisy that I cannot hear myself.… Continue reading Hiatus
As Singaporeans, we often expect high standards from our leaders. There is nothing wrong with that, although I don’t advocate a sense of entitlement. However, personally, I think it is important that we as citizens do better ourselves. I recently came across this article in CNA which talks about organ donation in Singapore. We often… Continue reading Things we can do better as citizens
So today, I got an email out of the blue. It was from a legitimate email address, but I was not expecting any documents. Most probably, someone’s email got compromised. What I did next was that I called up the organisation from which the email was sent and asked if there is such a person.… Continue reading Cybersecurity is everyone’s responsibility
I was scrolling through Facebook when I saw this post shared by a friend. It was made anonymously on NTU confession. I was tempted to post a comment. Then I realised that I am really trying to be quiet this year. So I didn’t. In fact, I used to be quite active on NTU confession… Continue reading NTU Confession Post – Spending 6 years in Engineering
So today when I went to SGH for a medical appointment, I met this lady who was waiting at the entrance of the cafe. I bought my drink and food and asked if she is waiting for a seat, just in case I cut her queue. She kinda shocked me with her tone but I… Continue reading Blind Spots?
