After many years, I finally spilled coffee on the right side of my T460 keyboard. The laptop carried on like nothing happened. Lenovo weren’t kidding when they claimed that the ThinkPad laptops are life-resistant. Or, I made that up.
Today is Cooling Off Day. Singaporeans will go to vote tomorrow, on 10 July 2020.
I believe that the Singapore National Pledge functions as an unsinkable ballast to steer the nation. It’s been nearly two decades since I last recited the Pledge in school. I still remember it by heart.
“We, the citizens of Singapore,The Singapore National pledge
pledge ourselves as one united people,
regardless of race, language or religion,
to build a democratic society
based on justice and equality
so as to achieve happiness, prosperity
and progress for our nation.”
I hope Singapore turns out for the better and citizens maintain their fighting spirit. Come what may, we stand united. More than a cliche line, unity truly is strength. Such strength will see Singapore through dark, choppy, and dangerous waters.
Scissors paper stone
Politics no place for games
Say no to blank cheque
Mind space where things place
Clutter clogging mental fog
Automation and its effects have fascinated me ever since I came across the concept years ago. I saw gradual implementation of technology across the various sectors over the years. In the early 2010s, I worked as a Corporate Customer Service Executive for a local telco. 313@Somerset was a usual lunchtime haunt. One day, I spotted several touchscreen machines in a Yoshinoya outlet.
It was right there and then, I told myself that we would see touchscreen machines in fast food restaurant across the nation.
I have long clamoured to take an examination through digital means. I absolutely detest putting pen to paper and cannot stand my writing being unable to keep up with my thoughts. Furthermore, my writing is absolutely terrible. If I am the marker, I’d curse me and all 18 generations of my family.
