A Romancing Singapore campaign?
As if it isn't bad enough... A Romancing Singapore campaign? Good reason to stay out of Singapore for February.

And the days race past...
Almost end of the week. Accomplished some of the stuff I should have but it's going to be a working weekend. Went to attend the opening of John's shop yesterday. Nice little space. Bought some really cool stuff and not too expensive too. Spoke to Dawson who might finally have landed something, after taking a drastic pay cut (about half of what he was getting) and trying to look for something for months, with no freelance because he's out here on work permit.

Well I'm happy for John and Wei Wei. Their dream certainly looks close to being a reality. The next 77th street? Hey it's possible. Their stuff is pretty cool and unique. I like their shark bottle opener. Might get it for my bro.

There's something beguiling about this site.

This one is disturbing:

A new dog in town
Yes, the business name is ok... and it is.. *drum roll*

Ion Dog Media

Yes not the greatest name, but works for me. Anyway, got the first "deal", kinda.

Freaking Hilarious!

I am absolutely drained today. Running around, finishing a proposal, brainstorming for a video, negotiating with the video team, doing a CD-R duplication thing, trying to figure out what was wrong with the fax and finally finishing up the NY Post article which I'm super-sian about. Just closed it and sent it off. I guess I need to put some distance with it. Now have to censor a movie... boy I really have to learn to take a breather. Running myself ragged.

Was down at the Esplanade to watch Aubrey sing and it was packed like a neighbourhood shopping center. There were ah peks sitting on the floor queueing up to enter the concert hall. I'm still bugged by the fact that the hall doesn't have a center aisle for people to walk through, so you probably have to stomp over 100 people's feet if you're seated somewhere in the middle and arrive late. I think someone commented it lacked the human touch, and can't help but agree. The acoustics are good and the place does look grand. I think it will put Singapore on the map, and it's nice to have some interesting architecture even though some people think it sucks.

Had to give a brief talk thing yesterday at this Society of Literacy and Reading and the other speaker was Catherine Lim. Boy she's well-preseved and still has a killer figure. She says she has closed door sessions with the gahmen and gets asked some very interesting questions. She's a very good and frank speaker, and really keeps the crowd on its toes. Funnily enough, they were having an Anthony Robbins session in the next conference room at the same time.

After that, it was back home, a short nap and then off to meet Kevin, Mel, Vaya and Yoyo for dinner. Went to First Thai which was pretty good. Yoyo warned against a more posh-looking Thai place on the same street. I was worried he was talking about First Thai cos the food there is TOO GOOD for me to give it up. ;) And then to Poolitix where I haven't been for half a year. Place is much quieter now. Had a few games of survivor pool. Best strategy I think is still to go for the kill and eliminate players, rather than just settle for easiest shot. ;) Fun evening... and it's a new week and almost October. Time has flown. I should have done much more this month. Will go see if they've okayed the business name tomorrow.
