Student Fare exists for Bus 185!!!
Have yet to seen this on other bus services...
I'm paying full adult fare with my Singapore Polytechnic ez-link card btw...
(actual photo of the "student fare")
Opp. Parc Oasis (stage 11.0) --> Dover Stn. (stage 21.0): $1.09
Dover Stn. (stage 4.0)--> Parc Oasis (stage 14.0):
Try the eGuide here: https://www.transitlink.com.sg/eguide2.html
Using a Singapore Polytechnic ez-link card and boarding service 185 leaving from Dover MRT, you enjoy special STUDENT FARE!!!
(no matter how far I ride, I still pay $0.67 alighting as far as JJC there.)
Can't find any related information can be found on Transitlink's website.
Instead of going to/from school by bus ($1.09 x 2) = $2.18,
to sch (MRT), from sch (Bus) = $0.98 + $0.67 = $1.65
Savings = $0.53/day
no bad huh. ;)

- 7.2Megapix camera with 5x optical zoom!!!
- 3.5inch 640x480 16.7million colour touch screen
- Symbian S70 3rd edition OS
- Quad-band, GPS and Bluetooth 2.0
- 160MB (phone) + 2GB (memory card)
One glance at the picture and you know this is a direct competitor of Apple's iPhone. Most noticeably in the specification sheet is the powerful Carl Zeiss 7.2megapix camera with 5x optical zoom. Although this little monster weights 15-grams lighter than the iPhone, but its 160MB memory is nothing as compared to iPhone's massive 8GB (max).
On the other hand, it boasts a VGA touch-screen doubles the resolution of Apple's offering. It's just getting more exciting when this website mentions that the N98 has in-built graphics accelerator and Wifi 802.11b/g/n!! WOW~
Sadly, retail price & availability is still pretty much an unknown.

Did Osama wrote this dumb program?? =P
"...call to electronic arms for the followers of Osama bin Laden. It was said that on Nov. 11, Al Qaeda experts would use a program known as “Electronic Jihad” to coordinate attacks on Western, Jewish, Israeli, Muslim apostate and Shiite Web sites. Electronic Jihad, also known as the E-Jihad program, is currently in revision 3.00.
The plan was to first practice by taking down 15 specific sites and then move on to bigger attacks involving “hundreds of thousands of Islamist hackers...”"

Yes, Ping.sg's latest competitor is born this morning (I wrote this article yesterday) --Nuffnang's innit
At first glance, it simply reminds you of Ping.sg.
Number of "nangs" (pongs), post title, post description, username and erm.. the comment feature, which is quite a failure in ping.sg?
I've got a feeling that it is just a matter of time.. before sex or sex related posts will flood the "most popular" list...
Anyway, a major difference I found is that innit doesn't use the "ping engine", meaning you gotta add a new post manually every time. This can be a good thing or bad thing depends how you wanna see it..
Ok, here's something new, the "Nang-it" feature allows bloggers (logged-in) to "nang" another's post once, thus increasing their effective number of "nangs" without actually viewing the post itself..
Another source of visitors for bloggers
A good reason to STAY with Nuffnang =)
Lack of innovation!
No spam bot-free feature, eg. "word verification"
No tools to report "questionable" posts?
No AJAX on innit page itself? (no auto-fresh like nuffnang home page)
There are no links to innit at nuffnang's home page
I hope they will continue to improve on it over time...

Met them @ Sakae Marina for buffet...
This is noob #2...
Should have ordered plate by plate, because...

Dvd eat until everywhere also got crab eggs...
They ordered one shot 20+ dumplings, good luck!
What's the joke...?
Jacob & Ong is infected by the laughing disease...
laugh until he rips the seat off (-_-)"
Melissa Wong pretend she dunno us...
Laugh until the floor also got dumpling...
Xr picked it up & eat...
Wanted to stack higher,
but the manager insist that she wants to collect all the used plates...
Bad CRM!!! =(
Before Ong left, he poured hot water onto the mouse =X
One little surprise for the birthday girl,
Birthday Sushi !!!
I bet its her first... =P
Stupid staff tried to charge me & #2 $107+ for the buffet!!!
Paying the bill wasted like 15min...
(Video) How to Recharge Non-Rechargeable Batteries
Did he say "it is called electrical tape because it conducts electricity"?!
You must have failed your primary school science horribly to believe this joker. =D
Not to pour cold water on them,
but just a few min into their new system,
BROKEN LINK SPOTTED (-_-)"

Came across this on my iGoogle.
This is outrageous!! 14-year-old kids having tattoos!?
I think they've been watched too many episodes of Miami Ink on TV =D
"One 14-year-old, who asked to be called John, said he got tattoos done at a shop near City Hall.
The shop owner, who declined to be named, admitted he does not have any age restriction for customers who want tattoos. The shop often serves secondary school students...
Dr Low Chai Ling from the Sloane Clinic said she once saw a 14-year-old boy with a large dragon tattoo on his back, which he had got without his parents' consent..."

Here's a video on How to Increase Your Wifi (WLAN) signal strength on a PC/Laptop!
(802.11 a / b / g / n)
I had a good laugh at how serious this video looks.
Can't believe there are people who actually believed its real!!
"If it sounds too good to be true. It probably is!"
Did you put your $ there?
Because I was smart enough NOT to..
I even heard of local uni students quit school to work there full time..
Quote from the article on the StraitsTimes:
"THE Commercial Affairs Department (CAD) has begun investigation into the affairs of Sunshine Empire following reports of its controversial business practices.
A police statement on Tuesday, advising those who have invested in the company to wait for further updates from CAD, said they may be asked to help in the probe.
Barely 16 months into operations here, Sunshine was placed on the Monetary Authority of Singapore?s (MAS?) investor alert list in September.
This list names people or firms who may be conducting activities regulated by the MAS without authority.
On Oct 24, The Straits Times reported that the multi-level marketing firm had come under scrutiny because it appeared to be operating like a pure investment scheme, something it did not have the license to do.
MAS has warned people against making investments with unregulated firms and individuals. And a new consumer alert has been issued to inform consumers about get-rich schemes that sound too good to be true..."

In the post, I'll reveal to you the Secrets of Widgetbucks.
Together, we shall find out which type of ad will earn you the highest CPC...
First of all, taken from the top performer of Widgetbucks:
Quite obviously, Movie is the worst paying ad of all, even though it has the highest click-rate.
On the other hand, MP3 players ads pays more than 6 times that of Movies - 43cents/click. Do note that the currency is in USD.
Second, we look this very "green" blog:
Consumer electronics ads tops the chart!!
Laptop, PDA, Digital camera paying 45cent, 43cent and 42cents respectively.
But then again, the same trend occurs - Movies has the highest click-rate!
Also, I'm quite surprised that Strollers is the blog's top earning ad.
Last but not least -- mine (-_-)"
Firstly, stop laughing at my pathetic earning, I only signed up for a week ok?
Nothing much to see actually, but once again, consumer electronic is confirmed to have the highest CPC.
I would recommend putting either Movie ads (due to its high click rate),
and Laptop ads, because it pays the most.
But then again, it really depends on the demographics of your visitors and the nature of your blog/site.
Do note that Widgetbucks is a pure CPC program.

Can't access to their website,
