Came across this sad story… 10 boys clashed against 6, resulted in 2 horrible injuries :
A friend of the two victims said that the group of about six teenagers had been in Plaza Singapura when they noticed another group of about ten teenagers looking at them with contempt.
He said that a face-to-face confrontation between the two groups ensued outside the shopping centre before a fight broke out.
He added that members of the other group then took out sharp weapons and slashed the victims in their stomachs.
On the scene, one victim appeared unconscious, while the other in severe pain.
As fellow co-sojourners, we can all learn to give each other more space and grace in the highway of life.

Been really busy and focusing more on my tech blogs, surprisingly the readership for this blog has been up even though I hardly update. So sorry my dear readers – I will do my best to update this blog more often!
Anyways, I’m in Hanoi now and just wanted to have a quick gripe about the horrible taxi situation here in Hanoi. And I thought Singapore was bad.
Here, a simple journey of say 3-4km costs like S$10. The meter ticks at S$0.10 every 10 metres. One U-turn is like 50cents SGD.
This is based on my few experiences with the cabs here which I hailed from the streets.
Seriously… how do people survive over here?
See my gripe at CNET Asia about the internet connection here… zzz
Having made all these gripes, I do think Hanoi is a much nicer looking city compared to Ho Chi Minh (with the exception of their upmarket District 7)
Yes, guys it’s like stealing candies from babies literally!

You know, since my posts on cute babes have been extremely popular, I decided to go for a part III
I’ve talked about squirrels and my favorite doggie, how about some really really cute babes whom I’ve had the chance to meet as through blogging as fellow co-sojourners?
Sometime back, a friend and I talking about the local blogging scene noted that most of the posts that struck us or posts that our topics revolved around came from one blogger, a very cute one for that matter :
Yes, Meet Qiaoyun a.k.a. Sheylara. WARNING : DON’T go to her blog. I repeat, DON’T go to her blog.
You end up laughing yourself silly and totally hooked to it.
Which explains why she’s been nominated as one of the most entertaining blogs in Singapore.
Go Go vote for her, just requires a simple email and password and you can vote daily!
While you are at it, look out for the Best Blog Shop by another cute babe whom I’m never met in person.
She’s so cute and sexy she has stayed elusive from the public eye so this may be the best picture we have of her :
The sexy maths tutor Celine Loi of 五大超级补习天王天后 (lit. The Five Heavenly Super Tutors) fame
Go vote for her under the Best Blog Shop category!
Celine has put together a dummy’s guide to voting for her here.
For the rest of you wondering what I’ve been up to, I’m on a new religion and playing tonnes of basketball.
This blog is about reflections of life through lessons/parallels learnt from the highway (or the road).
And I just had this reflection recently about outdoor advertising on vehicles and how it has some similarities to blog advertising.
Companies place out ads on cars or vans like this because it’s an outdoor advertising media that gets you lots of exposure, for a relatively low price compared to say TV commercials or newspaper ads. However, Continue reading
Someone I met on the highway of life not too long ago, a newfound co-sojourner, flew to Mexico around the same time I left for China because the Singapore Government had appointed him to Mexico to receive this award on their behalf:
where Singapore placed TOP amongst all the cities of the world!
I must rave about it!
A panel of experts voted for 38 MAKCI nominees and the top 10 are placed as follows Continue reading
Saw this blog post from my friend @ SimplyJean and thought I talk about it since
1. This is a blog about highways! (But this post mainly for Singaporean readers only, sorry!)
2. (I think) I actually know how this is done, coz I was shown the technology many moons ago.
NEARLY 3,400 vehicles were caught exceeding the 70kmh speed limit in the underground Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE) in the first six days of its opening. Continue reading
