Remember the My Melody Carrier from McDonald’s? Singapore McDonald’s is launching a Hello Kitty Carrier on Thursday, 14 Nov 2019, 7am.

Singapore is the first country in the world to get this. So expect crazy queues.

Available at all Singapore McDonald’s outlet thru counters and Self-Ordering Kiosks. Not available via Drive-Thru, McCafe, Dessert Kiosks, McDelivery or GrabFood. Not available at McDonald’s Tampines Shell, McDonald’s Hougang Shell and McDonald’s Tampines Kiosk.

Good luck queuing. May the odds be ever in your favor.

Qoo10 just completed its operational integration with MyInfo, a digital service that enables citizens and residents to better manage their government-verified personal data. The integration will boost consumer confidence in Qoo10’s individual sellers, while greatly simplifying the seller registration process.

New and existing individual sellers will be able to enter personal particulars via the MyInfo service. Developed by Singapore’s Government Technology Agency (GovTech), MyInfo automatically fills in a user’s personal data fields on registration forms upon SingPass authentication. This process empowers any individual in Singapore to set up an e-commerce business in just a few simple clicks while ensuring that Qoo10 obtains valid data directly from government-verified sources.

With trusted data, Qoo10 aims to give its customers greater peace of mind as they transact with individual sellers on the platform. In the event of any investigative procedures launched against the seller, the details obtained via MyInfo will also help Qoo10 to promptly and accurately assist the authorities.

Corporate seller processes will not be directly affected by this integration, as Qoo10 currently collects a corporate seller’s ACRA Bizfile, along with its latest bank statements, during registration. Qoo10 is working to complete a similar integration with MyInfo Business, where local corporate sellers may sign in with CorpPass credentials to automatically fill in required details for the registration process.

And the 39 is here. The last year that I can say I’m in my thirties. Come to think of it, it’s kinda scary. Next year, I’ll be a 40 year old uncle. Wow. I feel old.

2019 has been kinda unexpected. I wasn’t expecting myself to be still jobless now. I thought I would have found a job by mid this year. Well, the job hunt was not as smooth as what I was expecting. But I guess it was for the better. I rather be out hunting for a job than ending up in a job that I hate. Someday, all these will make sense. Just like what Steve Jobs said during the 2005 Stanford commencement address.

You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.

I don’t know why but whenever my birthday is around the corner, I’ll find myself singing the song Forever Young. Maybe it’s to remind myself that I’m no longer young.

So many adventures couldn’t happen today
So many songs we forgot to play
So many dreams swinging out of the blue
We let them come true
