I am Twenty Seven today! Damn, looks like now I can be classified under late twenties!
Li Xiang got me there when she ordered 2 cakes from Pine Garden to be delivered to my office. I was shocked when I received the cake. My colleagues even lighted up the candle and sing a short verse of the birthday song, making it even more embarrassing! Suddenly the whole office knew my birthday!
If you fancy either an Angry Birds Plush Toy or a SingTel Droid Toy, just head down to SingTel Booth at IT Show 2011 and show them that you are a fan of SingTel by liking their Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/singtel, and then show your Facebook profile to the staff there and you will get a chance to catch one of these using the catcher aka UFO machine!
It has been 1 year since I started working at mig33 (this is my first job)! Till date, I am still learning lots of new stuff everyday at work!
We do not just do coding, but also reading up on new technology trends and how we can deploy them to production so that they bring benefits to the company. For the past year, I learn stuff like Hadoop, Redis, Memcached, RabbitMQ and on top of that scaling the LAMP stack and making them as efficient as possible is what we do as well.
I started my goal of losing weight after I got my Nike + iPod Sport Kit with SwitchEasy Runaway. When I was in October 2010, I weigh 89kg and my goal was to be about 75kg before Chinese New Year which is in February 2011. Currently my weight is 78kg, I still got 3kg to go and 2 more weeks =D.
I started by running about 2.4km and try to completed it under 14 minutes. I did that for 3 times per week at the start, than slowly becoming 2 times per week due to my laziness! Sometimes on weekends, I will go for swimming as well, swimming between 15 to 20 laps per session.
Li Xiang and I will be going to Jakarta, Indonesia tomorrow for the weekend to visit my secondary school friend Sugih and to meet Pei Jun there.
My iPhone 4 is as good as a paper weight when I go overseas because I can’t use data on it due to expensive data roaming. I always wanted to try SingTel’s Bridge DataRoam Unlimited but didn’t have chance to read up more about it. So for tomorrow’s trip, I decided to research a little.
Apple will be holding a one-day Chinese New Year Sale, This Friday, 14th January 2010.
If I am not mistaken, they held it once every year, instead of Black Friday in the US, we have a Red Chinese New Year in Singapore. I did not get anything from the 2010 sale. For the 2009 sale, I got the Belkin Auto Charger For iPod And iPhone.
In my last year blog post, Looking Back 2009, I stated that I wanted to find a job, which I did, as a Web Engineer at mig33 and I started officially on the 1st February 2010. I have been with mig33 for almost 1 year, how time flies!
Last year I spend New Year’s Eve watching Alvin & The Chipmunks 2 at VivoCity and this year I will be spending it inside the Cinema, watching The Tourist, starring Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie and Paul Bettany at Orchard Cineleisure.
