We are probably not ready for disruption in Singapore yet.

Yes, the first registered electric motorcycle I’ve seen has arrived in Singapore, and no, it is not a Tesla or a Superbike — it is actually a very utilitarian Aidea AA-cargo — 3 wheeled bike.

I’ve owned and ridden a Zero Motorcycle, and it feels exactly like a big motorcycle, except that it is completely silent, torquey, and has a short-range.

Vaccination started in Singapore, and seniors have priority. There are many different places to go for your vaccination.

My mom received her letter a few days ago, and there are also many people visiting to inform us that there are vaccinations available for seniors. (Which they have a list of seniors in the area to visit.

The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine and the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine are authorized for use in Singapore, and you do not have a choice of which vaccines to take. They are made using messenger RNA, or mRNA, a technology that delivers a bit of genetic code…


Well, not unless it is your pet.

Why do people feed birds?

Well, I’ve asked many people and here are the answers.

  • Good intentions (poor birdy needs food)
  • Wild life photography
  • Excuse not to waste food
  • Save endangered birds from extinction

Whatever your reasons are, having good intentions is definitely not enough.

I’ve read several papers on endangered birds, and one bird is studied and documented. Studies have shown that jays fed by humans reproduce earlier in the year than those that are not.

So what happens when the babies reproduced earlier? When the babies hatch before the caterpillars they…

Every year, Chinese New Year is one of the most stressful times in Singapore, and even in the COVID-19 restricted period, there is no exception.

NTUC is especially crowded. People in their motorized wheelchairs, strollers, baskets with wheels will all converge at NTUC, and they seem to just let everyone in with no limit of capacity. I don’t understand why people go to NTUC as I’ve checked many items and Giant and Sheng Shiong is much cheaper, sadly for Tiger Beer and some fruits, even Cold Storage costs less than NTUC.

At NTUC, you also get to see the “aunties”…

High motorcycle COE affects everyone in Singapore as the motorcycle is one of the primary transport for couriers.

Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat acknowledges this and to reduce the cost of motorcycles, he increased the tax on motorcycles to try to lower the cost.

As Chinese New Year is coming, there are many pineapple tarts for sale in Singapore.

I’ve been a fan of Pineapple tarts, and even though I live in Taiwan for several years, I don’t think the Taiwan Pineapple tarts are as good because they are simply not as rich as some of the Singaporean ones.


Renting out a room is already hard. In Singapore, there are so many Indian Couples that both of them will try to rent your room and get a better price as though it is a competition.

Losing your tenant and your job can be a double whammy and of course, leads you to be scammed by these scammers who like to hit people when they are down.

Gumtree is one of the sites where I get a lot of spam and scams, like Craigslist, but a Singapore version. …

I was often excited when the government declares some fantastic technology to be introduced to Singapore, but since the 2000s, many of these promises seemed to be badly implemented and failed as a result.

With many countries already building an electric vehicle infrastructure, selling electric cars, Singapore seemed to be slow to move but has now declared that electric vehicles would be ok and in fact — encouraged.

I am a big fan of electric vehicles. Zero-emission, less noise, and sounds would be a big plus, not to mention, great acceleration and possibly a lower cost to operate. …
