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.

Happy 56th Birthday, Singapore
With one day left to National Day and #SG56, I am very happy to see the government making a brave move to start opening up the economy in a bid towards becoming Covid resilient, and accept the fact that it’s unrealistic and impossible to keep closing the country up in order to keep infection toContinue reading “Happy 56th Birthday, 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.
Cilka’s Journey – A story of incredible suffering and perseverance

However, it’s very encouraging to witness people’s courage and mental strength, and toContinue reading “Happy 55th Birthday, Singapore!!!”
Unf*ck Yourself – Book Summary and Review
First of all, let me get one thing straight. After reading this book, I find it to be of the same vibe as so many other self help books or websites that you can find almost everywhere nowadays. There are some good tips, so novel ideas, but mostly nothing new (or probably it’s just because I have read too many of those similar materials elsewhere). I learnt something in the book, and refreshed some points that I had gone through before, and I managed to create some connections. So, in a way, it’s not total waste of time for me, and it will surely benefit those who are new to this genre. If you need some motivations to make changes in your daily life, you can just dive in, and gain something for yourself. I am pretty sure you can get something useful, and your life will at least improve a little, or at least you will feel like so.
