How It Felt To Fly On The Singapore Airlines Suites

Last week, my wife and I flew Suites on Singapore Airlines for the first time for our honeymoon. We did it by redeeming our miles (here’s how to do it – though some of the info is outdated), because we couldn’t afford to pay full price for it. It was awesome, although I felt like a kid who had sneaked into a cocktail […]

Automate Yo’ Social Media

Heyyyyaaa! I know, I know, I’ve been away for awhile now. No, I’m not dead (yet). I haven’t posted for several weeks because work has been crazy busy in the past month: 3 countries, lots and lots of meetings, a bunch of presentations, and my wife got baptised over the weekend (Yay!). I’m won’t bore you […]

Creating Isn’t Easy

One of my favorite movie scenes of all time comes from the film Limitless. Bradley Cooper plays Eddie – a down-and-out loser who’s struggling in his career as a writer. He comes across NZT-48 – a “smart drug” that lets him access 100% of his brain instead of the usual 10% (this is a myth, but hey, […]

Two Readers Share Their Money Struggles

Okay people, it was International Women’s Day this week. We male financial bloggers aren’t known for our social skills around women, so I decided to try something a little different and let them do the talking this week. Last week, I asked my female readers to share their biggest challenges about money. I picked two stories that […]

Upcoming Event: The Future Is Female

I have a love-hate relationship with email. On one hand, I love getting emails from my readers. I love your insights, your comments, and the great questions I get every week. However with the volume of emails I get, it’s also super hard for me to carry out a decent email conversation with any given […]

The Easiest Superpower To Learn

Last week, I found myself standing in front of a crowd of ten people. Everyone was staring at me. One guy was frowning. I was feeling a little jumpy. I wondered whether my fly was open. Crap – I couldn’t remember my opening. I had no idea what to do with my hands. I remembered that “thought […]

A So-Called Singaporean Love Story (Told In Corporate Jargon)

“FYI pls,” Mr Tan said, “I’d like to introduce Siew May, who will be joining our headcount as per today. Tks.” Siew May implemented a smile as she shook hands with her new colleagues. “It’s a pleasure to establish introductions with you,” she beamed. Boon Keong received a notification on his shoulder – it was his buddy Tim. “Bro,” whispered […]
