The 55 member company of St Petersburg Ballet continues to collect rave reviews around the world and thrill audiences with breathtaking scenery and magnificent costumes. Now St Petersburg Ballet will perform the immortal and enchanting Swan Lake for a limited season.

First performed in St Petersburg in 1895, Swan Lake, with its unrivalled “white acts”, its spectacular and dramatic ballroom scene, sublime music and deeply moving story, is the ballet that towers above all others.

The story of Swan Lake tells of young Prince Siegfried who falls in love with the Swan Queen Odette, a young woman transformed into a White Swan by an evil sorcerer.

The St. Petersburg Ballet is renowned globally not just for beautiful dancers but also for stunning and grand full-length productions.

Group Direct Message coming to Twitter soon

I seldom use the Direct Message feature of Twitter. Maybe because a lot of instant messaging features are missing on the DM function. Well, Twitter recently announced that it will be adding Group Direct Message soon. This means that instead of just DM-ing to one person, you can DM to multiple people at the same time. It’s like creating a private group chat.

OK, this feature is already available in almost all instant message apps like Facebook Chat, WhatsApp etc etc. Twitter is kinda late in the game. Let’s see if this new feature will encourage more users to use the DM function.

The group DM feature will be rolling out to all users over the next few days.

COI+ LEGO Power Brick

All LEGO fans are going to love this. A 4200mAh LEGO Power Brick.

The COI+ LEGO Power Brick comes with some LEGO bricks so that you can build anything you want on the power brick. One of the best thing to build is actually a smartphone stand so that you can watch movie while your phone is charging. Cool huh? Works great too if you have a few Minifig lying around.

The only thing that I don’t like about the COI+ LEGO Power Brick is that it only have 1 USB port. At 4200mAh, I would expect at least 2 USB port so that I can charge more than 1 device at the same time. Nevertheless, this is still a cool power brick. Comes in Red, Yellow, Blue and White colour.

Beware of phishing emails

Received this email recently and for a moment I thought my PayPal account really got issue. Even the URL looks real if you aren’t observant.

phishing

The URL does looks like it is from PayPal. But it isn’t. Look again. It is actually www.paypal.com.sg.webapp.home.intl.made-com.com. The domain is actually made-com.com. This is not the first time I’ve received such phishing email. But I think its always good to remind everyone to be careful and not fall for it.

Remember to look carefully at the URL before clicking. Or to be safe, open your web browser and type out the URL yourself.

Hope nobody fell for this phishing website.
