The Purpose

Got an email from a past graduate who found life becoming mundane and was afraid of becoming just another working “zombie” like those she sees on the train going to work everyday. She asked me what her life meant and how could she make her life more meaningful and fulfilling. At last night’s class, I […]

Random Update … Wed 14 May 14 @ 20:13

I’m sitting at home. After 60 agonising hours of being warded at Singapore General Hospital, I am finally at home and temporarily untortured. But the ordeal is not yet over … In November 2011, I had an operation done to remove a gouty tophi from my right foot (big toe). It had become so huge […]

Taking A Long Break

I am tired. And I need a break. I also need time to regroup and reorganise. My health has taken a beating and I need to slow down. The demand for the tutorial has also slowed significantly. Thus, I don’t see the point in pressing on too hard while I should be using this time […]

May Day Food For Thought – 1 May, 2012

INFLATION OR STIMULATION? Someone asked me why thoughtless lavish spending encourages inflation when it helps to stimulate the economy … In one small example, buying an apartment you can’t afford then defaulting on the downpayment means that your thoughtless spending just helped to raise the price of properties unrealistically and returning the apartment doesn’t bring […]

Weekend Food For Thought – 28 April, 2012

Just How Do Singaporeans Live? The cost of a one bedroom apartment in Tg Katong/Paya Lebar is now S$900,000. The cost of any small car in Singapore now comes at a minimum of $100,000. (That’s not even considering the $90K COE for a 2L car.)   You need to be a millionaire to afford a […]

Two Decades And A Woman

On February 08, 1992. I changed my life forever, for better or for worse, whether in good times or bad, regardless of sickness or health. On that day, I no longer was “me” … “Me” became “us”. That is the one day in history I would never change. That is the day I would live […]
