No cycling signage, and yet...

I swear sometimes adults really give bad examples. See this photo I took at Toa Payoh. The signage of no cycling is clearly displayed but the old fool just chose to cycle at the otherwise nice, and clear pathway at Toa Payoh. Makes me wonder really. All these signages--and yet, no enforcement of the rule? C'mon!!!

StarHub no signal today??

Yeah...spent this evening staring at my handphone. How come there's no signal? I'm subscribing to StarHub by the way. Went to the Net, and check out that I'm not the only one with this problem.

Referring to Hardwarezone Forum, "STARHUB GOT ISSUE?? HP NO SIGNAL!!", it seems that people who are staying at the northern part of Singapore (in particular, Sembawang & Yishun) are the ones affected! But the disappointing part is that StarHub does not say anything about it in its official website or its Twitter?! Heh.

If Hashtags Were A Language

Check out this hilarious YouTube clip, "If Hashtags Were A Language".


Well, if you're like me who's completely lost about what on earth hashtag is, you may want to check out this Wikipedia article. More info can be found in this article, "Using hashtags on Twitter". And hey, there is even an official website for hashtags? (Check out www.hashtags.org).
