There is a social media phenomenon known as the “Ice Bucket Challenge” going on in US now. The challenge involve dumping a pail of ice cold water over your head and challenging 3 other people to do the same within 24 hours or donate $100 to ALS Association which fights amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease)
This challenge has since become viral with celebrities like Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon and Martha Stewart taking part in them. Even Tim Cook and Mark Zuckerberg done it.
But I guess the best ALS Ice Bucket Challenge goes to Bill Gates. Hey, he even found a chance to plug the latest Microsoft Surface Pro 3.
We should do this in Singapore too.
Gangnam Style hit another milestone on 31 May 2014 by being the first video to reach 2 billion views on YouTube. Amazing. The music video was the first to reach 1 billion in December 2012. The 2nd most view video on YouTube is Justin Bieber’s Baby with slightly more than 1 billion views.
“2 billion views…they are very honorable and very burdensome numbers,” PSY said via a statement. “With appreciation, I will come back soon with more joyful contents!!”
Some people say that we will sooner see snow storm in Singapore than we will see gratitude. And perhaps that’s why I’ve been wishing to see snow in Singapore, especially during hot weather like this.
But hey, maybe we don’t need to wait till snow storm to see gratitude in Singapore. Remember the guys from Stand Up For Our Singapore? They are organising their 2nd picnic this coming Vesak Day.
So join them this coming Vesak Day and bring some food along. Be grateful for things around you and make Singapore a better place. To sign up, visit http://bit.ly/standupmiracle

Seems like the roof in Singapore are quite happening this week. Besides the couple at Ngee Ann Poly and graffiti at Toa Payoh, something interesting happened on the roof top of another building in Singapore. Flying drones delivering Coke to the roof of high rise construction sites to thank the foreign workers for their hard work.
Check out the heart warming video.
The “Happiness from the Skies” project is a partnership between Coca-Cola Singapore and Singapore Kindness Movement
This is a Public Service Announcement. 6 May 2014 is not Vesak Day. Vesak Day 2014 falls on 13 May.
If you are on iOS and using the Holidays in Singapore calendar, you might notice that it says Vesak Day is on 6 May 2014 (Tomorrow). That’s an error.
So sorry guys. Tomorrow is a work day. Go back to work.
