Wanted to spend a quiet day today but woke up seeing few messages that basically ruined my entire afternoon. OK lah. Not really ruined but basically things that I can do without. Anyway, whatever lah. Can’t be bothered.


Been thinking a lot lately. 36 years is not a short time. And honestly speaking, sometimes I wonder if I have another 36 years left in this life. Maybe I should stop wasting whatever time I have left and try something different. Maybe extreme sports. (PS: I just bought a GoPro Hero 5 Black as a present for myself. Lol)

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

OK, maybe I’ve been listening to Forever Young too much lately. I guess when you get older, you can actually relate more to that song.

Goodbye Funan

Today is the last day for Funan DigitaLife Mall. The mall will be closed for 3 years for a major redevelopment.

Going to miss the place when it is gone. One thing for sure, the old Funan Centre feel will be gone when the mall reopens in 3 years time.

Goodbye. And thank you for all the memories.

Happy 8th Birthday DKSG

Almost forgot that today is my 8th year blogging on this domain. Thank goodness I got Timehop to remind me.


So Happy Birthday DKSG! It’s been 8 years of blogging here. Sometimes I wonder if I’ll carry on blogging. I’ve been thinking quite a bit lately. Maybe its time to switch to video blogging instead. Lol. We’ll see.

Auld Lang Syne

It’s hard to believe that 2015 is over so quickly. They say time flies faster when you are older and I think they are right.

If I say 2014 is an uneventful year, then 2015 is an eventful year. Eventful in the wrong way. Maybe someone upstairs thought that I wanted something eventful. Half of my 2015 was spend fighting off stupid people.

A lot of things had changed at work. Quite a number of my colleagues have left and I’ve transferred to another department. Another will be leaving next month. All because we had a new horrible boss.

I was talking to a friend few days ago and she said that I have some symptoms of depression during that period. Looking back, I think I might be. It was difficult working for someone who doesn’t appreciate what you do. I always said that I was blessed with good bosses. I guess someone upstairs decide that it is time for me to try working for a horrible boss for once.

2015 would had been a great year without this unnecessary toxic in my life. So glad that it is over.

2016 is going to be an exciting year for me. Well, at least I can be sure that it can’t be worse than 2015.

May 2016 be a great year for everyone.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days of auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

Power trip can damage fibre ONT

Had a power trip at home recently. OK, power trips are uncommon but they are usually non-events. All we need to do is to flip the switch back at the circuit breaker.

But this time round it was slightly different. The power trip damaged my fibre Optical Network Terminal (ONT). Tried restarting my ONT and router several times but there’s no lights on the PON (Passive Optical Network) indicator. Which means I have no internet at home. *horror*

PS: I hang my ONT on the wall to save space. Lol.

Well, luckily I managed to get the ONT changed the next day. Plug in the new ONT and peace was restored at home once again.

I’ve always heard that power trip might damage your electrical appliances. But this is the first time I encountered it personally. And totally didn’t expect my ONT to be affected. I thought things my iMac or NAS are more likely to be damaged by power trip.

Well, good thing it is just the ONT that was damaged. Got it replaced for free since I’m still under contract for my fibre plan. Let’s hope we don’t get power trip again.
