In anticipation of Bloggers.sg, I created a simple banner 468x60 ad for the event. It's an animated GIF (15 sec, unlimited animation) based on the T-shirt design. It can be seen on my blog at http://yuhuibc.blogspot.com.
I'm not sure if you guys have created any banner ads, but I thought
that this would be a simple and cheap (free!) way to generate some
publicity. If you have your own ads, then of course we should use
If not and you think that this is a good idea, please feel free to inform other bloggers about it.

Have you ever noticed that the date 3108 (August 31st) looks like the word "Blog"? I have noticed it when I was in the first Blog conference that was held in Israel and I doodled it on a paper. On that day I started to roll an idea that I hope would become a global tradition.

Joone over at Nibble & scribble is trying to organise a gathering of Singaporean food bloggers:
Chubby hubby, Gwenda and myself are trying to organize a little get together over a lunch where we can eat like pigs without apologies for our greediness or for any form of bad table manners. The details at the moment are tentative as we are currently trying to look for a location and to fix a date.

I look again at the thread in cowboy bar and I wonder where this mob mentality stem from. No one seems to notice that nothing was said about popularity in Xiaxue's post. Everyone was quick to placate the thread starter. It was like a "Us vs Her" kind of thing.
Hikikomori talks about the Cowboy Bar.

And the question grows deeper. Some people tell me, "I'm sure you have a deeper reason to become a paramedic. People just don't join cause they like to zip around in ambulances." Yes i have a deeper reason, it lies somewhere between boundaries of my morals and conscience. Something happened to me nearly a decade ago, something sad that changed my life forever.
Read about the protaganist's strength and courage and her journey from being an accident victim to a life-saving paramedic.

Featured in The Star:
Blogging is not just a fad, nor is it a vehicle of scandal as is often portrayed in the media. Some Malaysian bloggers are churning out memorable stories about their everyday lives.
In Malaysia, there are at least 10,000 bloggers, according to Aizuddin Danian, 29, co-founder of Project Petaling Street or PPS as it is fondly known, a “blogtal” (blog-portal) that allows Malaysian bloggers to post updates on their latest posts, and also serves as a directory. PPS is like Tomorrow.sg but the content there is unmoderated.
The Malaysian media has finally given their bloggers some loving. The Star has featured 4 popular Malaysian bloggers, including the infamous Minishorts and Kennysia. This article contains interviews with them. Have you checked out the blogosphere across the causeway lately?

It reads: JOU SOTO SEEF WIK SOUM KE
Jeff Ooi recently blogged about the shocking revelations alleged by a website that had been setup to inform the public that Malaysian underworld overlord Michael Soosai was not dead, but very much alive and up to his old tricks in India - with the help of senior Malaysian policemen.
No Underworld Dons can grow without the support of the Enforcement Agencies such as the Police Department. [...]
This website is of interest to ALL Ministers of Home Affairs in the World, National Police Chiefs in the World and Leading Publications & Movie Producers Worldwide. They have been duly informed.
Blogger Mackzulkifli has discovered hidden crypts on www.michaelsoosai.org that shocked the top cops. It's mind boggling. He zoomed in on the website's banner, sliced a portion of the JPG, enlarged it and turned it from vertical to horizontal. The words "MIND GAMES IV" revealed.

Remember Bubblemunche, also known as Eddy Neo, who left us and the blogosphere awhile back then? Well, Finicky Feline and Scarlett Ting had the honour of meeting him for dinner at a not-so-classified location...
We were informed soup of the day was 'lamb chop'.
I was grossly disappointed when clam chowder was served instead.
We had an animated dinner, filled with explicit detailed insights to post-Eddy Neo days, and we even thought of filling 'Scarlett, Bubblemunche, Finicky Feline' on the feedback form.

Evelyn explains the various methods of body hair removal. A must read for first-timers.
People always feel that paying a price for professional service is better.
Actually, it's because they are more ruthless in yanking out your hair. Not their hair wat...so they're not afraid of the pain. If you do it yourself, you'll take a bloody long time and a few hairs at one go. Theirs is, chop chop yank...and off you go.

Such a view is of course beyond the pale if you want to be a reader of Tomorrow.sg and be part of the Singapore blogosphere - at the least the one they have linked together. Clearly I can’t be a member in this club if I’m not clamouring to attend this convention.
Alternative view on the blogger.sg poll.

Another impromptu blogger’s night out with a bigger than expected turn out. The whole idea was for us who haven’t gone down to Mambo for a long time to just sit there and laugh at people dancing in a funny manner. I think unless its Mambo night, no one in their right mind would dance literally to the song lyrics.

as i re-read the article, i kept noticing the similarity between my story above and the synopsis of other erm girlie novels that i read like .. Sophie Kinsella and Wendy Holden.
Suddenly, i feel like a female protagonist, one who starts out everything going wrong for her, well almost everything and then gradually smoothens life out little by little through a series of disaster.

Taking his non-existent DJ-ing skills to the next level, Mr Miyagi tries his hand at another type of table turning.
Press The Face is a series of interviews with real-life news journalists. Yes, you heard me. Real journos. For real newspapers. Not bloggers and not wannabes like ourselves. ...
So, anyhoo, the subject of the maiden Press The Face interview is Janice Wong, formerly a journalist for the top broadsheet and some of the top tabloids in Singapore. She has written for Streats, The Straits Times and The New Paper. Like you, Janice has also asked why she, of all the top journalists in Singapore, is being interviewed first.
