I joined Tech in Asia as The Tech Guy on 1st September 2014. It has been a busy September for us. There are two developers (Li Soon and I) in Tech in Asia and we have another team in Vietnam that is doing Techlist.
Our priority for September is basically to scale Tech in Asia.
In case you haven’t been following me, I left migme (previously known as mig33) after 4 years and 7 months there. I went in as a Web Engineer and along the way I got promoted to Senior Web Engineer. It has been an awesome ride with my fellow colleagues in migme.
Yesterday was my 30th birthday! The big 30! I am no longer in the 20+ years old range =(
Just came back from Sydney, Australia after spending a week there for holidays with Li Xiang! Sydney is a good place to retire but generally prices there are so much more expensive than Singapore (maybe except for houses and cars). I got a shocked when I paid AU$20 for a 2-hour parking!

SingTel rewards program used to be called Red Rewards and Red Prestige before they decided to drop the “Red” word last year to just SingTel Rewards and SingTel Prestige.

Thanks to iFly Singapore for the invite to the Christmas party last week and for the complimentary session of indoor skydiving! It was my first time trying indoor skydiving and I love it!
For the beginner lesson “The Adventure”, the whole session is about 2 hours. After signing the indemnity form at the counter, you will be ushered to the “hangar” to watch some videos on what iFly Singapore is about, what to expect for the whole session and basic indoor skydiving tips (eg: hand signals, postures).
Personally, I find the service level in Singapore acceptable. I think the service level in retail shops are generally better than those in F&B. If I have to name one F&B in Singapore that has the worst service, it got to be Crystal Jade Kitchen.
Having been to the US (but not yet Japan), the service level in US is awesome for both for retail and F&B.
