Rachel and I are the first couple in Singapore to have our solemnisation ceremony on board an airplane – how cool is that? :)
It happened at 5.50am on 2 February, 2010, on board Jetstar’s plane, 3K 823 at Changi Airport, Terminal 1.
The two witnesses who signed on the certificate were my mom and Rachel’s mom. The wedding solemniser is Justice of Peace, Mr Lim Huan Chiang.
The ceremony was short, it was over in around ten minutes. The plane took off on time after that with no delay.

Malaysian people hate Singapore for various reasons. One of them is that Singaporeans are fond of claiming that they are superior to Malaysia as a country. Their basis for this postulation is their efficient public transport, totalitarian government, stringent pursuit of education and superior exchange rate. Some of these are things that Malaysians could debate but it would cause more bad than good through comparison. The usual retort of a Malaysian person is “Your country is a pirated version of ours”.

Lawrence had suffered heat stroke during his National Service. What happened next was a shock to many of his friends and family. Due to the heat stroke suffered during National Service training, Lawrence was paralyzed in most of his body. He also suffered inflammation and infection in his wind pipe. That resulted in having an operation to have a opening at his throat.
Lawrence could not eat on his own and had limited mobility. He could only type using a small digital pad or sms to communicate his thoughts. He was in no position to take care of himself. As he can't speak, he could only capture your attention by breathing deeply. Yes, it does sound like Darth Vader breathing with intensity.
I was concerned over his situation so I asked him whether Mindef offered any kind of assistance or compensation to him. I was told they are only paying him $500 a month plus a CSC card. In Lawrence's own words via sms to me, "The $500 is not even enough for me to hire a maid!".

After months of weeks of hardwork and countless hours of design and thought through, I have finally built the Xin Pa Sat. Xin Pa Sat literaly means New Market. Created after the Lau Pa Sat (Old Market) in downtown Singapore, Xin Pa Sat aims to be the virtual cousin of the vibrant Lau Pa Sat. A new market place for virtual trading of virtual merchandise, and maybe real world merchandise.

Everybody was saying it was impossible for Singapore to qualify and realize our dream of Goal 2010. But not only did we do that, we also managed to wrestle the rights to host the games and edge out Argentina, Italy, France and Germany along the way. I am now overwhelmed with emotions by the sight of the full 3,900 capacity crowd here at Toa Payoh Stadium.

In its neverending quest to make films that will sell in Hollywood, the Singapore Film Delusion, sorry, sorry, Commission has commissioned a local remake/adaptation of Francis Ford Coppola’s epic ‘The Godfather’, about a powerful family who is unafraid to exert its influence in order to further its business...

For the past 8 years, MOK Ly Yng has been collecting images of Singapore taken from space. On National Day, he released his collage of 16 images entitled "Singapore from Space - 40 years".
The collage spans the period 1963 - 2005 (1963 to include the first satellite photos taken of Singapore). Spot the "changes both in Singapore and her immediate surroundings over these 40 years."
