Tinker Tailor made me realize that the name of the new Google payment system - GBuy - would be inappropriate and difficult to pronounce, particularly in Singapore, Malaysia, or among Hokkien-speaking people.

Worst flu

This week I was down with my worst flu ever since I left Indonesia (2001 that is). I started to have a sore throat on Monday early evening, then I had a sudden onset of a really bad fever later at night. WARNING!!! Don't continue to read this entry if you're easily disgusted because I'm gonna be quite graphic in describing what happened.

Walkable Cities?

In the past, people walk to get to their destinations.

Currently, "walking" is a destination by itself. People would drive to a place, park their car, and then they would walk.

Are current "walkable cities" for real?

" Indonesia Raya" Versi Jos Cleber

MENJELANG akhir tahun lalu, Pak Jusuf Ronodipuro menggamit lengan saya di sebuah konser Addie MS. "Sudah dapat kabar?" tanya beliau. Saya tak tahu apa yang dimaksudkannya. "Jos Cleber meninggal."

Triple Date and Playground

Today we went for a triple date in Botanic Garden, and went to the playground in Dover. But before that, yesterday, we were just chilling out at home. Noe slept soundly on my belly, while I totally passed out.

On the bright sunny day three babies and their parents strolled along the path in Botanic Garden Singapore.

Another Great Taste of Mocca (2006)

Do you remember when I wrote A Great Taste of Mocca back in February 2005 (almost a year ago) ? Yes, I am sure you remember if you have been following our blog here. My words will never be able to explain to you the beauty of their music. But let me give it a shot with these few words:

" Charming, Engaging, Sweet and Mystifying....".

I just happened to love their music so much that I feel the importance of posting some photos from their gig at Esplanade outdoor stage on Friday 27 January 2006. The only difference is that they did not have the brass section like they did last year. However, they managed the situation really well and gave extra "umph" into the music. Mocca has been quite busy lately going on a tour from one Asian city to another (from Pattaya to Okinawa to Kuala Lumpur and Singapore).

Happy Birthday, Andika John!

Andika is one year old already. Time goes by so fast! I recalled that it felt just like yesterday when Natasha and I both realised that we're pregnant. And then the babies were born. And then the first birthdays.Since we really enjoy making music, we would like to share our joy for music with Andika too. We got him a set of drum, maracas, tambourine, and castanets. Andika immediately had fun with the drums. Good, now we can form a baby band.
