It’s been a very long time since I last did this. If you have been following my blog long enough, you would have seen a series of blog post call “Too Long For Twitter, Too Short For Blog” or in short TLFT TSFB. I have no idea why I stop doing this after 9 entries. I think I was busy and there aren’t much stuff that is of this length. So I stopped.
Well, it’s back. Although I don’t know for how long. Wahahahaha.
SingPost vandalise its mailbox for YOG marketing
I don’t understand what the linkage between vandalism and Youth Olympic Games. Oh wait, it’s actually graffiti, not vandalism. Does anyone know the difference between graffiti and vandalism? Anyway, SingPost has apologized for the viral marketing stunt.
If you ask me, I’ll say it’s publicity, in a bad way.
My officer on Court martial
A high ranking army officer has been brought before a tribunal for alleged misconduct under military law. I think he is actually one of the officer in my unit during my NSF days. I’m not directly under him but I know him. Remember his name because he is quite a nice guy. Well respected by men and officers. High flyer too.
I hope he is innocent. We need more people like him in SAF.
You can get a birthday cake from OCBC
Blogger Kitchen Tigeress visited OCBC on her birthday, requesting for a cake as advertised on their advertisement. The staff tried to convinced her that it’s just an advertisement but failed. In the end, the manager bought her a cake.
I must say that the manager handled the situation well. I hope he managed to claim the cost of the cake from the company. Ads agencies, beware.
Sky Dining on NYE
Holly Jean spend her NYE on the Singapore Flyer Sky Dining but the service wasn’t up to her expectation. It’s a fully booked day and the Singapore Flyer had some logistic problems that wasn’t handled well by the staff.
What can I say? Of all days, they choose to cock up on a day when a prominent blogger is onboard. Damn unlucky. But credits to them for being quick to offer service recovery. Hope they can learn from the mistakes and improve on it.
HP Slate copy Apple?
Microsoft CEO Steve Balmer unveiled a new touch-enabled slate PC from HP during his CES Keynote. And I’ve been reading lots of comments saying that HP is copying Apple’s iSlate which is rumored to be announced on 26 or 27 Jan 2010.
Wait a minute. HP has officially announced their Slate PC. Apple’s iSlate is still a rumor and Apple haven’t confirmed it. So how is that considered copying?
My health conscious nephew
I was laughing when my sis told me that my 7 year old nephew sometimes looks for the “Healthier Choice” logo when buying can drinks. I wonder where did he learn that from.
