There are a few things that I am grateful for as 2022 started winding down and 2023 is unfolding: So, that’s it, my reflections for the year. And with 2023 rolling in, it’s time to plan ahead and see what to achieve for a blooming year.

Happy New Year 2022
So, 2021 has left and 2022 has come, and here is the customary new year post where I look back at the old year and look forward to the new year. Let’s start with the old year first. While it seemed to be another lost year, and an extension of a disappointing year, in factContinue reading “Happy New Year 2022”
July was a special month for me. First of all, I was certified to be Covid-19 fully vaccinated, after receiving my 2nd dose and a waiting period of 2 weeks for my immunity to build up. It’s not a 100% guarantee against getting Covid-19, but at least I have done my part in reducing theContinue reading “Eventful July”
First jab of Covid-19 vaccination
This afternoon, I had my first jab of Covid-19 vaccine, and it was a really smooth experience. Having eagerly registered for the shots right when I was eligible, I managed to get a relatively early slot, at my preferred timing right after I was done with my normal working day. And since I was notContinue reading “First jab of Covid-19 vaccination”
Another lockdown is looming soon in Singapore
Singapore is entering another partial lockdown due to the spike of local Covid-19 cases recently. It started with imported cases from high risk South Asian countries, then spilled over to the community. We all know that it will happen, it’s just the matter of time, but I did not expect the spillover happened so fast.Continue reading “Another lockdown is looming soon in Singapore”
Soul – A nice Pixar movie to start the new year with
It’s a nice and meaningful movie for the whole family. It will be perceived a bit differently by people of different ages, but I strongly believe that everyone will get something for themselves. It remains to be seen whether the movie will become a classic, like Up, Inside Out or Toy Story, but one thing for sure, it will warm your heart in these winter days and make you feel that life is still beautiful.
Happy 55th Birthday, Singapore!!!
So, the celebration has finished, the concert has ended and tomorrow is a new working day, when everyone will come back to their own business amidst a pandemic that is still wreaking havoc everywhere and an economy that is still in shambles. However, it’s very encouraging to witness people’s courage and mental strength, and toContinue reading “Happy 55th Birthday, Singapore!!!”
36 and counting, age is just a number
Ok, so I have just entered my 36 years of age. It’s a significant number, considering that I am Asian, and we follow the 12th Chinese Zodiac sign. 36 years means I have finished another full circle, and now entering a new circle, starting again with my zodiac animal, The Rat. And while not muchContinue reading “36 and counting, age is just a number”
COVID Diary – The End is near
Finally, after two months of working from home, I found the time to write some notes on the whirlwind that has thrown the whole world upside down. Millions of jobs have been lost. Millions of people have been infected. Thousands have died. Billions have been impacted, one way or another. People have called it theContinue reading “COVID Diary – The End is near”
The Tattooist of Auschwitz – An Incredible Tale of Survival
An incredible tale of survival. That’s my first and longest impression after finishing the book The Tattooist of Auschwitz. It was written in a simple manner, with little fanfare and straightforward story telling style of sort, yet it was powerful enough to keep me hooked from the beginning to the end. The book told theContinue reading “The Tattooist of Auschwitz – An Incredible Tale of Survival”
