Liam Neeson to endorse one lucky winner’s ‘particular set of skills’ on LinkedIn

It’s not everyday you see companies use LinkedIn to run their social media campaign. Most social media campaigns are done on either Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Well, Twentieth Century Fox is having a marketing campaign for the upcoming movie Taken 3 using LinkedIn.

One lucky winner will have his or her ‘particular set of skills’ on LinkedIn endorsed by Liam Neeson aka Brian Mills, an ex-CIA operative in the movie Taken 3.

Unfortunately this contest is only for residents of United States. Sigh. How I wish Liam Neeson can endorse my very particular set of skills that I have acquired over a very long career in Social Media. Haha.

If you are from the US, head down to the LinkedIn page and take part in the contest. Good luck.

Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2014

The Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2014 took place last Sunday.

The crazy me decided to wake up early to take some photos of the event. It was quite convenient because the train service extended their operating hours for the marathon. I decided to catch the first runner somewhere around the 37KM mark where there is an overhead bridge from MBS to GBTB.


Kenya’s Kenneth Mungara was the first to reach my location. He went on to be the first to cross the finish line in the Elite Men’s Open category at 2 hours 16 minutes and 40 seconds. In the Elite Women’s Open category, Amare Wagnesh of Ethiopia got first place with a time of 2 hours 46 minutes and 53 seconds.


Mok Ying Ren was the first male Singaporean to cross the finish line at 2 hours 53 minutes and 43 seconds. Rachel See won the Local Women’s Open category with 3 hours 17 minutes and 13 seconds.

Here are some of the photos that I took at the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore.
