NYU Tisch Asia lecturer, Jennifer Ruff, warns of cobras and canings in singapore and ponders the perks of "Dying of boredom...To be frank, Singapore itself is boring. There is not a lot to do except make films. Which is kind of great. In New York City, there are a million amazing distractions, but I’ve noticed that students here spend much more time in the editing lab; there just isn’t as much to tempt them... Other than Eric Khoo, whose film My Magic received a passionate standing ovation as the first Singaporean film to be in competition in Cannes this year, most cineastes probably can’t name another Singapore director..."

What rubbish is that? You jolly well know that everyone is looking forward to use your products and yet you chose to delay the launch (iPhone was launched in US in June this year and last month in Europe). To make it worse, you are sending your 'Imperial Storm-Troopers' to sniff out all the 'rebellions' sellers in Singapore. This is way too much! I mean why must the ang mos enjoy the best things of your products before they slowly make their way to us Asians! Are we your secondary consumers? Since you don't treasure our maket, what rights do you have to stop others from selling them who dying to own them. Now, you are impending the free market forces of distributing the goods and service to your consumers outside US.

Frankly a week at CommunicAsia has me not loving telcos. Hour after hour it was carriers blathering at each other, or being blathered at by consultants, about how content is king, and must be "compelling" and "exclusive" if consumers are to be wooed to new mobile and "quadruple play" IP services - without a single content person in the house. Not one.

Yesterday, I went to the last Asian Aerospace event held in Singapore. It was great fun despite the lack of variety of military aircraft. There were no European or Russian fighters this year. Only the American exhibitors were left. Somehow, the Europeans and Russians appeared to have decided against marketing their wares this year.

I will never be nominated because 1) I am not a hottie, 2) I have no cute baby photos, 3) I don't have gift for the gab. What I do have is my thoughts on the rest of us who aren't popular enough for the Weblog Awards. Consider this a "feel-good" movie for the average Joe...

Seeking creative ideas based on the theme 5 Walls: Defying Definitions " White space. Negative space. Empty space. Is space empty, passive and constraining? Or is space a fluid concept and a medium full of possibilities? Bedroom. Kitchen. Study. Office space. Hotel room. Waiting room. We assign utilitarian purposes to spaces. Is the design by the creator of the space final? Or does space evolve organically with its users and inhabitants? Walls. Floors. Ceilings. Is that all that shapes a space? How can light, colours, smells, textures and sounds be designed to evoke the emotions, memories and experiences of users.
This is a very unique competition where youths are invited to submit ideas on space, beyond interior design ideas. The top prize is a 4 year scholarship and S$10000 in cash!

Do we have ‘Asian values’ or don’t we? Finally we can put the debate to rest.
So where do you think Singaporeans stand, vis-a-vis other countries? I’ll be posting the answer when I have more time, but for now all readers are welcome to make a guess by leaving a comment.
Tomorrow.sg bloggers are invited to attempt to place Singapore on a map of world values.

It's only the second day of work.. and i am super tired out.. Don't know how i can survive the next two days. At Communic Asia, since i am working at the Samsung phone gallery.. i have to work the more formal executive wear they provide. A black knee length skirt.. and a white blouse. It's actually pretty comfortable and nice.. at least i do need to wear funny outfits this time.. hehe..! But the black shoes they provide is sooooo pain! It's only one inch high.. so height wasn't the problem. The front part is pointed and my toes are squeezed together for the whole day.. so you can imagine.. i wanna... T_T

The concept behind this blog is to be an aggregator of the best English-language Asian blog content available. My regular site, myrick.ca, is to become a personal blog while this one will offer short-posts with links to nonpartisan multi-partisan sites; and hopefully written by a multiple of partisan authors.

Reuters reported that Singapore, ie, "we" accuse Japan of 'spoilting' relationship in asia. Aiyo, China-Japan problem why "we" so kapo!?
The predominantly ethnic Chinese city-state of Singapore accused Japan on Friday of straining relations with its neighbours for approving school textbooks that critics say whitewash its wartime atrocities.
[Ed: I am sure MFA negotiated something from China in return for making this statement.]
