It means no worries, for the rest of your life.

Mental health is an important thing and we are talking about it more often now.

Everyone is talking about it today.

But we need to do more than talk.

Literally.

We need to learn how to identify it early and creatively think of ways to combat it before it worsens.


One of the top things people hate about their bosses is when they micromanage.

That isn’t too surprising.

People generally hate it when others tell them what to do, down to the microscopic detail.

Others says its fine, because it shows that the boss cares.

Personally, I hate it when…


Small talk isn’t less talk.

Let me share with you a secret.

Small talk isn’t about talking small.

How often do you do small talk?

Most people I know don’t really like to do small talk as it is typically viewed as placid, empty and banal.

Not really.

Small talk isn’t simply talking about small…


Startup Weekend 2018 final party!

I would have loved to say that the peak of my 2021 was organizing the largest global hackathon in history.

4 years and hundreds of founders ago, we were organising one of the largest physical hackathons in Singapore ever.

It was electrifying.

It was a milestone achievement for many of…


Joseph Schooling won Singapore’s first and only Olympic Gold medal.

Remember that.

He was 21 years old when he won the 100m Butterfly event at Rio.

Respect that.

He truly made history on a world stage.

Never forget.

No one can ever take that away from him.

As a Singaporean…


He did the entire Tour de France alone.

The Tour de France is a national pride of France and a keystone event in competitive cycling.

Its a professional cycling event that occurs annually, where teams of cyclists compete to see who gets to the finish line first.

The whole route is really, really long.

Like 3,500 miles long.


There are 9 zeros in a billion.

Revenue beats Valuation

Nope, I am not talking about valuation.

Raising $1m in order to be valued at $1b is arguably arbitrary.

I am talking about revenue.

Making customers pay you and collecting $$ for services/products you sell them.

This is the time taken by these companies to reach $1…


Hello.

Windows 11 embraces “Openness”.

In a world where it is more rewarding in the long run to hold, store and capture data and customers within your own four walls, like how all the big tech companies are doing so, Microsoft is betting against that.

They don’t care if you use…


Me with Michael Blakey at SWSG2018, FaceBook HQ in Singapore for the Post-event Special Reunion.

Take a look at my hairstyle. What is this style called?

This photo was taken in Dec 2018.

3 years have passed since then.

People recognize my hair from afar, before they even see my face.

I just realized my hair hasn’t changed in years.

But I did.

After so…


Beautiful and awe-inspiring.

The Vatican owns more than 5,000 church and investment properties around the world, a central office at the Catholic Church revealed for the first time.

It was revealed due to the ongoing trial of a London investment deal gone wrong.

Some of the charges the group of 10 face include…
