My gal friend said that a guy whom she met couldn't possibly be single. By her standards, she found him to be eligible, therefore he couldn't ...

    Would you claim $5 for your phone bill if you earned $20k a month?

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 06 Jun '14, 1pm

    "If I earned $20,000 a month, I wouldn't claim $5 for my phone bill," said my friend when he accidentally found out that his colleague (whom he guessed earns a higher salary than him) submitted a claim for that amount. He thinks it costs way more than $5 in effort to process the claim...

    My self-designed standing desk

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 02 Jun '14, 10am

    I'd been checking out desks for standing but none of them were good enough. Inspired by some articles on the internet, I decided to put together my own standing desk. It took me only 5 mins because I had the necessary "equipment" already: my printer/scanner and an adjustable laptop st...

  • Hi, I'm alive! Are you still there?

    1. Work has been hectic. My team members have been on leave so I have to take over their duties. Working vs blogging: whichever makes me more money wins. 2. I've been addicted to reading. I've read 32 books this year. Murder mysteries are my favourite genre for now. Award-winning lite...

    Shenzhen: 15-16 January 2014

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 09 Feb '14, 6am

    I had a last-minute requirement to go to Shenzhen, China. I knew about it and made the arrangements for it only 1 day before flying. There weren't many choices of flights. There were only flights that were "business" timings, i.e. early morning flights out and the evening flights back...

  • People who dislike shopping are anti-social

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 04 Feb '14, 1pm

    I enjoy meeting my gal friend for dinner or tea but I dislike the part when she suggests that we "walk around", i.e. go shopping. Having no real need to expand my wardrobe, especially not with expensive clothes in Singapore, going shopping here seems to be a waste of time for me. Once...

    Is there any point with keeping in contact as "friends only" with an ex-lover?

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 02 Feb '14, 6am

    I'm not referring to the friends-with-benefits type of friend. Is it possible for anyone to be "just friends" with an ex-lover? (Excluding ex's whom you have children with because couples may remain friends for the sake of their children). I was in contact with a few (either I contact...

    The most meaningful birthday wishes are found in prayers

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 28 Jan '14, 3pm

    When my family gathered around the table for my sister's birthday dinner, my mum asked my dad to say a prayer before the meal. My dad said the usual "thank you, God, for the food and bless us all who are gathered here". We were hungry and couldn't wait to start eating. When he said "A...

    What's the use of reading?

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 20 Jan '14, 1pm

    Some people say that reading is a form of escaping one's life. I hardly see it that way because I love my life. But what's the use of all that knowledge obtained from books if it does not lead to any sort of action? I constantly struggle to find a good reason to "allow" myself to read...
