    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

    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...

    You can retire when you have a fully-paid house and 25x your annual spend in savings

    yu-kym.blogspot.com 19 Jan '14, 1pm

    I read an article about a man who retired when he was 30 years old. His wife also retired with him and they have a son. He claims that the one secret to their success is their low expenses of US$25,000 a year for a family of 3. [How to retire early — 35 years early ] He said that he a...

    January is the boom month for online dating, according to an article by BBC news magazine . Perhaps people broke up during the stressful year-end celebrations or they are looking for someone to spend Valentine's day with. The Asians who celebrate the lunar new year are probably in a h...

    No RIP for Bukit Brown

    A large portion of the Bukit Brown Cemetery is going to disappear to make way for a new road. After seeing the pictures and reading about the people who were buried there (http://bukitbrown.com ), I was interested to take a first and last look at this graveyard. It was easy getting th...
