The best thing that ever happened to me was my Poly Education

Recently, a blogger wrote a post to declare that Poly kids (including his) have no future in Singapore and that their private university certificate is not going to get them anywhere. Thus, they are better off skipping that useless private university education, get into the workforce early to start earning some income to create their passive investment portfolio. After which, they should perhaps migrate to somewhere cheap and live their lowly lives there. Singapore has no place for them. Since I am a graduate from poly, I thought I should write a post to console his poor kid and...

How an ARMY fandom raked in 22 million USD profit displacing 3 KOSPI listed companies with social media

While everyone is caught up with the #deletefacebook drama which send Facebook shares tanking around 10%. A headline caught my attention. BIGHIT entertainment beats the big 3 agencies and records the highest profit for 2017 How did a small entertainment company like BIGHIT with only 1 idol group beat the profits of 3 KOSPI listed companies that hosted a number of very popular groups ? If you look at the numbers, SM brought in the most revenues but is unfortunately not profitable. BIGHIT although has the least revenue is far more profitable than any of the Big 3. When...

Happy Woman’s Day! Let us dream not fear …

Happy Woman’s Day ! Let’s celebrate this day by cheering a Singapore lady who always speaks with her heart during budget every year! “We are a nation well-versed with fear as a motivating force. We’ve come very far in surviving as a country by not ignoring our fears. But it is not the only emotion worth listening to. Fear alone cannot bring us past a space of surviving into a space of thriving. When I live-poll youths in JCs, polys and ITEs about what is one word they associate with the future of Singapore, you know what word consistently...

How was your 2017 ?

I can’t quite decide whether 2017 is a good or bad year. The market around the world has hit a record high, the economy across the board is doing fairly well.  Yet, the world seemed to have moved further apart. The world leaders behaved like triads and there seemed alot of bottled anger among the civilians that resulted in unexpected election results and breakups. Personally, 2017 has been a year of indulgence for me. I ate well, slept well, travelled slowly and intently, had zero stress, zero targets, met up with alot of old acquaintances to reminisce good old...
