What’s the Most Unusual Bookmark You Have Ever Used?

I’m sure by now you all know how often I read. I read in the morning while having my breakfast. I read at lunch time while sipping my hot sencha and dipping crab maki (small rice-and-crabmeat-wrapped-in-seaweed) in wasabi and soy sauce. I read at night before bedtime. I even read at night way past my…

Emotions at the Mere Touch of Decor.

Hello everybody, aren’t you glad it’s Friday already? Yes, I tend to make my lines rhyme sometimes. And it actually sounds nicer too. Not to mention, a little poetic as well. Since it’s already the end of yet another harrowing and busy work week, here’s a little something to read that is easy on the…

Must Be Weird to be Famous.

Here’s something you don’t see everyday. Famous brands doing weird things just to see what’s it like on the other side. I’m sure you have heard of Michelin restaurant ratings and probably read the Guinness World Book of Records. But I’m not sure if either of us would eat Colgate’s kitchen entrees or wear Bic…

What is: MMO vs. MMORPG?

I’ll be honest with you. After putting in as many job applications as I could, I sat back and wondered what else could I do. Sure, I have also submitted a request to become a guest contributor on an online blog community (minus the pay because the community was new and they are still hiring…

I’d Say, You’re Already Halfway There!

As a child, you would have learnt the names of the seven days in a week in your first English class. As you grew older, you learnt that some calendars start their week on Sundays while other calendars start on Mondays. That was then. Nowadays, the seven days of the week are constantly being referenced…

Word.

OMG. Yes, OMG. Short for ‘Oh, My God!’, this word was initially made popular by Lord Fisher in his 1917 letter (below, photo by The Smithsonian Mag) addressed to Winston Churchill. 2016 is literally just around the corner, waiting to burst open its floodgates for us in roughly 12 hours to go, so let’s welcome…

SEO with Spiderbots.

The only time I ever want to talk about spiders is when I’m referring to the arachnids created by Google and other search engines. According to Kinetic Knowledge: These multi-legged robots are known as ‘spiderbots‘, ‘web crawlers‘ or ‘Googlebots‘), and are deployed by Google and other search engines to crawl your web pages based on…

Oh, ‘APP’ solutely!

Who would have thought that Waze could help so many drivers today, to locate their destinations and avoiding as much traffic congestion as possible. Whoever came up with the idea for Waze was one helluva genius (geniuses, ‘app’ arently, because it was created by Israeli trio Uri Levine, software engineer Ehud Shabtai, and Amir Shinar)!…

SEO is the Future.

There are way too many abbreviations, jargon and technical terms these days, especially in the world of social media and internet marketing. And especially since social media is a big thing and many companies have their own in-house teams or have acquired the services of a specialized agency. I feel confused just listening to people…

Homecooked with Love.

There will always come a time when you want to whip up something special but you don’t actually have the resources to do so. Special meals at special places will no doubt leave a hole in your wallet, or worse, if you already had an existing “hole” in your wallet, it will just expand and…

Secondhand for Sale.

When you find your house overflowing with items that you no longer have the use for, you realise that you need an outlet for these things. They are taking up space at home. They are just sitting there idle and looking pretty while gathering dust. They could very well be the root of your mother’s…

Like, Share, Reach. Repeat.

Did you just see what I did there? Read the tagline in the image above. Now there’s a catchphrase you don’t see very often. Use all the words that relate to Facebook engagement and you’ll get a very social media motto for your marketing means. It has always been about reaching out. Reach out to…

Which Social Media Are You?

Like my husband said to me last night, social media exploded onto the scene of the World Wide Web just when youngsters of the latest Net Generation were born. This only means that those born after the Generation X or Y will be very well-read with smartphones, tablets, laptops and computers, and all other things…

My Macabre Thursday.

*not inserting any images or photos of anything macabre because I tried to Google for some and it freaked the hell out of me!* Sometimes, the Internet can do funny things to you. One minute, you’re surfing through the chains of the World Wide Web, doing your work. And the next minute, you find yourself…

Technology at Your Fingertips

That was then. Once upon a time, there lived a girl in a modest terrace home where she grew up and was constantly surrounded by books, words and pages. Books have always been my constant companions for a long time now. I usually wind down after a hectic day at work with a chapter or…
