Recently I started playing sports again. What started with table tennis with a couple of friends led to badminton, a racquet sports that I have first started played a decade and more ago. I really want to get better in this so that I can join a special someone in games in the future.
Sports is really fun, badminton is really fun too. I will get better and have even more fun soon!
I’ve started learning to cook some time ago. For valentines day this year, I decided to cook dinner for my family and loved ones. Did not prepare this completely by myself though. Instead, a wonderful and marvellous chef and my master in cooking helped me throughout the process.
Overall the food turned out okay. The soup, best among all the dishes, tasted like those from cans (which is a good thing if you are wondering). A tad too bit salty though.
I had much fun preparing the meal. 10/10, will cook again.
God created the world, everything else is made in China. Buying things from China is a lot cheaper and recently the quality is decent too especially considering the price. Value for money is what you will get from most of your purchases from China. Most of you should be familiar with the online retailer Amazon. In China, they have TaoBao. Couple that with all the forwarding services available these days buying from Chinese online retailers has never been easier.
I recently bought a large ticket item, a mobile cart for hanging my 40-inch monitor. I used a forwarding and buying service called SGShop and would like to share some thoughts about my experience. In brief for those wondering how it went: Easy to purchase but item came in horrible shape.
I’ve recently went on a school trip to Beijing China in December. While most days were spent visiting companies and attending presentations and business sharings, I had my fair share of free time especially during the few days I extended after all the school stuff were over. If you know China, you know about the great firewall that blocks the great Google from being used. Yes, you can bypass it but in China, Google isn’t all that useful, especially when compared to other services like Baidu, the Chinese’s Google.
I finally did it! My first ever cooked meal. I have always wanted to learn cooking but never had the push to actually start trying out. My motivation finally came and I am really happy with the result. Cooking sure is fun but the washing is one tedious and annoying step.
In life, there are people that you want happy. It just feels terrible not knowing how to make one of these people be happy. It feels even worse when you know they are sad and you are lost for the actions you need to take to make them feel better. Continue reading →
I’ve just came back from China, Beijing, and had to find a way to work around the great firewall of China as I needed access to my email (Gmail) and other sites that I usually frequent. I did not want to spend money on a VPN service just for the short 2 weeks trip. I chanced upon Shadowsocks and it worked great for me. Continue reading →
