Looking Back 2010

Looking Back 2010

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.

Happy 26th Birthday Li Xiang!

Happy 26th Birthday Li Xiang!

Celebrated Li Xiang’s birthday with a stay at Marina Bay Sands (MBS) on Friday. We book pretty early and chose the Rise & Shine Package which includes 1 night stay and breakfast at Rise Cafe for two. Paid S$389 (S$457.85 after tax).

It is pretty expensive but I say it is totally worth it! Considering we paid S$270 for our 6th anniversary stay at Scarlet Hotel which has nothing and the room is much smaller and lack any window view. I would say MBS is not too expensive.

OCBC Account Number Format

The Finance Admin of Li Xiang’s freelance job contacted her saying that here OCBC Account number is invalid. She said the account number suppose to have 9 digits (excluding first 3 digit branch code and dashes) whereas her’s only have 7. I checked mine and mine also have 7 digits only. Both of us were puzzled.

I did asked around in Facebook and Twitter and it seems all the people who replied to me have 9 digits on their OCBC Account Number. At first I thought we got our account very early (more than 10 years ago) and hence the lesser number of digits but apparently it is not.

Ah Kong (阿公) which means grandfather is a 6 minutes short film by Royston Tan about Dementia. The film tells a poignant story of a grandson seeking to understand and reach out to his grandfather who is diagnosed with dementia. Ah Kong is part of HPB‟s campaign this year to raise awareness of dementia.

The short film start off with a few people praising Ah Kong in his younger days, cuts off to Ah Kong talking to the grandson and ends by the grandson understanding his ah gong condition and playing along with him.
