Oscar’s Buffet

Sushi selection from Oscar’s buffet lunch. Overall, I didn’t find their cooked food that nice. But desserts selection was good. Appetizer was also good. — Posted from my N95 Lifeblog.

Clearly People Are Getting More Bonuses

It is so difficult to find a place for lunch this festive season! I tried calling one day ahead to reserve a table, but many restaurants were already fully booked. In fact, it may be a horrendously expensive place, but they can still be fully booked for a weekday lunch, even if you tried to call ahead for reservations one…

Disappointment with Lee Wee & Brothers

Actually to say “disappointment” would be an understatement. I was flaming mad with them. I catered some food from Lee Wee & Brothers, and delivery was supposed to be from 3pm to 5pm. There was no sight of them at 5pm, or 5:30pm, or 6pm, or even 6:30pm. I called their office numbers repeatedly umpteenth times, every single time the…

Careful With Your Junk Mail

Does this cheque look real? Yes, that’s because it is real! It came to me in some junk mail (advertising) recently. “Free” money in the mail! You’ve probably heard of banks mailing out pre-approved credit cards, without your application and without your signature. The credit cards are already activated… you just need to start using them. That’s still not so…

How To Use A Door

[Photo missing] How often have you come across mindless instructions? This one is not as funny, but still, do you need instructions on how to exit a door? These instructions are pasted everywhere at my work place, probably because we have too many PHDs (permanent head damage) around who don’t know what to do with a door. Ah, but therein…

The Nokia N82 Blog, Not

My blog has quite unexpectedly become a frequently referenced source of Nokia N82 information. There has been a recent fury of traffic hitting my blog, and after checking the access logs, they appear to have been the result of search visitors sent from Yahoo Singapore. How odd, since I don’t have an N82. I have an N95 8GB, but the…

World’s Fastest Vista Notebook is a Mac

Yes, PC World has declared the world’s fastest Vista notebook is a Mac. How ironic is that? Apple has quite cleverly turned it into one of their TV ads. For those who aren’t aware, do check out their really  fascinating series of advertisements. The series has been running over a year now. I actually do return to the site from…

Nokia N82 Does Not Stand Out

No, unfortunately, I don’t think the Nokia N82 stands out after all. Although just simply based on technical specifications the N82 seems like a worthy challenger to Nokia’s premium N95 8GB, it’s a different story once you start comparing usability features. Of course, usability is a subjective matter, so let’s agree to disagree if you disagree with me, alright? First,…

Getting Lost with Clueless@SG

Just taking a quick swipe at a pet topic: Wireless@SG is lost. Lost as in it doesn’t know where it is. I was at NUH today. Surprise, Wireless@SG was working and I could login. But bigger surprise: The SingTel web page said “Welcome to Toa Payoh”! NUH in Toa Payoh? Luckily we don’t depend on Wireless@SG to get our bearings….
