Whatsapp doc?

So, it was big news that Facebook bought Whatsapp 2 days ago.


$19 billion.


Wow, my calculator does not even allow me to enter that many digits. Not that I have to.

First post of 2014 – To round up 2013

You would have thought I would have rounded up 2013 yesterday huh? Well, we have to wait till 2013 really ended right?


I was telling Mr D yesterday, that 10 years ago, you would not find me anywhere else on New Year’s Eve, other than at a countdown venue. Whether it was counting down at Marina or Sentosa with large crowds spraying foam or confetti at one another, or in a pub wearing party hats and blowing party horns with smaller crowds, I was bound to be somewhere crowded and noisy, and being able to see fireworks was a must.


Yesterday, at midnight, I was at the airport waiting for my mum to come back from her overseas trip. I had not even realised we had stepped into 2014 until I saw this as I was leaving the toilet, “Good Morning, please rate the cleanliness of our toilet”. Morning? Oh, it’s 2014 already! I checked my watch, exactly midnight. I spent the last few minutes of the year in the toilet.

Bangkok Getaway 2013

A couple of weeks back, Mr D and I made another short trip to Bangkok.  This time we were there for 5 days, one day more than our previous trip.


Upon arrival, we bought SIM cards at TrueMove booth at the airport. A mistake actually. I had wanted to go to DTAC. Anyway, it was 199 THB for 100MB and some talktime. Not too much data, but more than enough for us. All I remembered was the staff took a really long time to do the settings for us and a few of them were all acting busy. It was on 2G rather than 3G. Over those few days, the speed was good enough for reading news, some Whatsapping, but if you are the sort who has to upload your pictures to Facebook every other minute (which I totally am not), you might just feel like wanting to throw the phone into the Chao Phraya river.


Second time on Scootbiz

Am beginning to like the window seat on planes...after all these years of aisle seats. Love those meandering rivers. They always remind me of geography classes in Secondary school.
