Bye Bye 2018

Time pass really fast, now 2018 coming to an end soon, major thing this year is changed a new job, good thing is that it is a better job so career-wise considered doing fine. Today also completed my appraisal, boss said gave me very good rating, well at least here if put in effort it is recognised unlike my previous company.

Boss also trying to push me to become project manager... Anyway no harm trying but I still like doing technical work though, project management is a whole different beast which I tried a bit and didn't enjoy. Finish current project first then see how.

Family also doing well except that one time wife got hospitalised due to low INR reading, baby doing well but getting too fat, must make her exercise more. Next year she turning 4, maybe can start to enrol her in kindergarten but I'm not overly concerned.

Financial not so good in terms of investment, stocks losing money but good thing is that it is money that I don't need to touch so still not that bad, c…

Get Ginger Win Lucky Draw (中姜,中奖)

A few days ago during lunch I ordered chicken rice and after the owner scooped the rice, saw a big piece of ginger, the stall owner wanted to remove it for me but I said it's ok, then another guy said aloud 中姜, similar to 中奖 which means winning a prize, we just laughed about it.

Then yesterday I went for our company D&D, won two prizes, one prize is $30 CapitaLand vouchers. Then another one is a Sonos Play:1 speaker, retail price at Lazada is $269, not bad sia. But too bad the speaker quite complicated to use, end up selling it at Carousell for $150, it was quickly snapped up.

Been quite some time since I won something, maybe I should go buy toto, who knows win top 3 group lol.

Merries Diapers

I think Merries should be the most expensive brand of diapers I have seen so far, but for the price, the quality is there.
We recently switched from Drypers Drypantz because it was too small for her, she is wearing XXL but the Drypers XXL and Merries XXL different in size, Merries is actually a bit bigger so it fits much better. Actually it is also because my daughter is bigger and fatter so need a bigger diaper.
I also find that she runs through a bit less diapers after using Merries, think it is because it absorbs better and don't leak, the Drypers one don't absorb that well and always leak.
Overall Merries is more costly, buy at Lazada 78 pieces S$52+, Drypantz 112 pieces $38+, quite a big difference.

SP Group Update Recurring Credit Card

I recently replaced my credit and got a new expiry date and code, but card number is the same. My SP bill is paid via recurring credit card arrangement, and very strangely there is ZERO info on how to update my new credit card info at SP, even their website, FAQ, app, all never mention at all, wow.

Anyway I wait for them to try to deduct, if fail then let them come to me, knn email nobody reply, call nobody answer, leave number nobody call back, already almost one week, wtf?

$4 Chicken Rice @ Jackson Square

Cheap and good!

$3 Wanton Mee @ Commonwealth Crescent Market & Food Centre

This delicious plate of wanton mee only $3, cheap and good, hawker food is the best.

My wife had a plate of economical rice one meat two veggies only $2.70.

I think that this kind of real hawker centre is very precious and important to everyone, it offers cheap and good food to residents, it cannot disappear, can't imagine one day all these are gone and replaced by those fake social enterprises.

Why is our government allowing fake social enterprises to operate I really have no idea, if they are out to make money as with any business, fine, just don't carry the name social enterprise.
