Not everyone who laughs is happy. Some people smile to hide their pain. Never assume that someone who seems happy is not hurting. Maybe they need someone to look through the laughter and smiles, and see that they are hurting inside.
The perfect weather for me is “aircon” weather. That is, you go outside, and temperatures are similar to that of the internals of a shopping mall. 25 degree Celsius plus minus is perfect. Absolutely perfect. In Singapore, you get low 30s all year round during the day. Just a week and more ago we had 20s all day.
Have you ever been wronged, wrongly accused and had words put into your mouth and forced into you such that you must simply accept it for what it is? Sometimes life happens in such a way and the only option you have is to “suck it up”. How much can you suck before you finally explode?
For close to two year I have never understood why my computer fails to boot up on the first try.
I still don't understand why the computer doesn't boot up the very first time. It boots perfectly fine the second time though.

I always had to restart the computer half way through before being able to successfully boot into Windows. Today I learned that it was Window’s brilliant recommended option to enable “fast startup” that is causing all the issues. For all of you out there facing a booting up problem, disable “fast startup” and test again.
I’ve started a new YouTube series whereby I consolidate some of the more interesting and cool releases (products, services, open source code etc!) over the week. Check out my first introductory video and let me know what you think!
Two weeks ago, I took my final academic examination. Last Friday, I submitted my final academic report. Learning does not stop though. It never does.
After 3 academic years in university, I have finally obtained a scholarship for my final year. The scholarship covers my entire last two semesters before I graduate. Maybe this is the start of my grand exit out of my academia life. Maybe, just maybe. School’s about to start, we’ll see what happens next.
