Singapore is constantly changing. Given a short span of 43 years, Singapore has transformed from a fishermen village to a highly developed and urbanized city. Although our history is short, we do have a very rich and unique culture.
Make a guess! Where is this place? (Picture below)
Do you know where this place is? Club Street – A narrow hill dotted with idiosyncratic shophouses. It is a place where you can find trendy bars, restaurants and galleries!
Do you want to get a taste of our island’s colourful past, rich heritage and vibrant culture? Why not join the guided tour to one of the oldest (and now coolest) shopping street this weekend?! Discover hidden parks and fascinating alleyways amongst other historic gems in this heritage walk through the hip and happening Ann Siang Hill.

Well this event is not only about Food! All the foods you have purchased during this event will be donated to Andrew and Grace Home. You are doing your part for our society!
Besides good foods, the highlight is the heritage tour of the Peranakan Museum. Well, the tour is guided by Mark Lee (so you can expect a lot of jokes and laughter) I feel that the tour is pretty educational and Mark Lee has done a terrific job in introducing the custom and practices of Peranakan. (Who say Mark Lee can’t speak good mandarin??)

Feel lost in the job market? Lack of motivation? I believe these are some emotional struggles among young Singaporean. However in the midst of poor market condition, there always exist an opportunity. Successful entrepreneurs usually emerge during bad weather. Why not get yourself de-stressed and feel the air of entrepreneurialism with Global Entrepreneurship Week 2008?
Global Entrepreneurship Week (The Week) lasts from 17 to 23 Nov 2008. It is a celebration of innovation, entrepreneurship and creativity. The Week will bring together millions of young people across the globe through online and local activities and encourage them to think innovatively and unleash their ideas.
This is not an “All Talk, No Action” event. M.Y. FBI Holiday Camp, targeted at children (age 10-12), will required participants to think of creative ideas to sell their craft on 22nd November as a closing for the camp. All profits will go to a charity benefiting children which will be selected by the participants themselves.
Besides business educations for the young children, Youths-4 Charity Flea market is targeted at youths from Secondary Schools and ITE with a focus on social entrepreneurship. Youths-4 Charity Flea market is a competition. Each team will be required to produce items/ crafts for sale on the flea market. To make the competition more realistic, rental and interest will be imposed.
The Global Entrepreneurship Week 2008 is organised by ACE and NUS Enterprise. The sponsored review is provided by BLOG2u (http://blog2u.sg). If you wish to find out more information of the event, please visit the official site: http://www.entrepreneurshipweeksg.org

If you are an entrepreneur or business developer, you are constantly fighting for sales otherwise you will lose out in this highly-competitive market. Time is everything! As a sales person or entrepreneur (especially those at the early stage of startup), you need to be highly efficient even on the move!
Meeting your clients is like engaging a fire fight. You need weapons and transportation for wars. Your products are your bullets and your car should be like your armor vehicle. Besides transportation capabilities, armor-vehicles have fighting and communication capabilities. Question here, “besides transportation, what else can our car do?”
I am sure all of us agree that car is a liability. Why? Simply because we do not see much of owning a car except for the ERP (for those who don’t understand, it is the acronym of Electronic Road Pricing), car loans, petrol charges and road taxes. We need to look at uses or applications of car beyond transportation.
I come across the term “Mobile Office”. One of the examples is to convert your vehicle into a mobile place. I believe this is the area that can be further explored. In fact Volkswagen (Stock Quotes: VOW.DE) has the concept of such car. Below are some of the photos of Volkswagen T6.
I am using this example only to prove my point that we need more applications on wheels. In fact, I believe that the design of the concept car can be further developed to suit the needs of the mass (especially entrepreneurs who might not have an office to work since office rental can be quite expensive).Sounds hard? But it is not very hard for the technicians to change or modify your car parts. If you watch MTV channel, there is a TV program called “Pimp My Ride” that actually helps to “renovate” your car.
Enough of Wonderland! Let’s get back to reality. In Singapore, we have seen car loves spend ten thousands of dollars just on installing lighting and car audio system. I am sure there is a demand of office usages on cars. But, Can we have such car modification in Singapore? Bear in mind, you might be installing additional battery (approval from LTA – Land Transport Authority ) to power up your equipments such as communication devices which might transmit wireless signal (approval from IDA – Infocomm Development Authority).Things are not going to be that simple. I believe there are more factors to consider.
I am very willing to hear more. Please drop your comments.
I can’t believe in my eyes! I haven’t seen such a big dog in my life. I was recommended by my sister to go shopping at U Petgamart, a warehouse-concept pet store. When i walked into the store, this dalmatian look-alike was lying on the floor. When it stood up, its head is about my chest level! (guys, I am about 1.78m tall)
This is the new song by JJ – 熟能生巧. So who’s the hot babe in his new song? Her name is Akemi. She is a Taiwanese model. She was born in Brazil, but growed up in Tokyo (wanna know more about her, visit here).
A follow-up from my previous post – 林俊杰的赤壁之战. I think the chinese oriental type of music (which Jay Chow usually sings) may not be suitable for JJ. He sounds too modern for that. What did you guys think?
