As HTC’s first global advertising campaign, the YOU campaign is being rolled out across 20 countries in the coming weeks and features the tagline, ‘You don’t need to get a phone. You need a phone that gets you.’  This represents HTC’s commitment to focus on people, their needs and how they work and live to ensure that HTC devices suit them.



On the same day, HTC also announced the launch of HTC Tattoo, an Android-based phone that brings broad personalisation to the masses in Singapore.  With its distinct design and ability to personalise all aspects of the phone, from its hardware to its applications and content, people are able to express themselves and create their own individual mobile experience.

Obama Can Use BlackBerry in White House

President Obama will soon get his souped-up, high-security BlackBerry for use in and around the White House and during presidential travel, according to Obama administration officials.


So will Obama ditch Sectera Edge for BlackBerry? Obama has been carrying two smartphones: a BlackBerry 8830 that he uses for personal calls, and a General Dynamics Sectera Edge that he uses for secret government business. These 2 devices will soon be integrated into 1. The SecurVoice software package that allows users access to data up to the Top-Secret classification level was developed by Genesis Key with the help of engineers from the Toronto-based Research In Motion, which makes BlackBerry.

Video: SMRt Bus on fire at jalan eunos


While I was driving along Jalan Eunos, Singapore on 12 Apr 2009, 1320H, we spotted a bus on fire! Fire started at the back. Probably the engine overheated!    


There were construction workers trying to fight the fire but it was very dangerous! Furthermore, the place should be cordoned off if it was the engine on fire. The bus might explode anything.


If this fire was caused by overheated engine, shouldn’t it a stringent check on the bus before it is operational?



how 3r is practised in prison?


I was travelling on SBS Bus no. 5 to my dad’s factory and I saw rows of door hangers near the ceiling of the bus. The one that captured my attention is the job advertisement by Singapore Prison Service.












(Pic above) “Do Not Disturb” side


Captains of Lives. 3R stands for Rehab, Renew and Restart
















(Pic above) “What Do You See” side


The other side of the door hanger shows a picture illustrating visual perception. This picture can be interpreted as “outside the cell” and “inside the cell”.  


It is an interesting campaign and probably, they are expecting many applicants to join Singapore Prison Service.
