Singapore Top Wine Bar & Bistro

I've just dined at one of my ex-bosses' restaurant - Mel's Place Bar & Bistro yesterday night. Had a great time with all my ex-colleagues & old friends. The BBQ food was also great. Not sure if it's because I know the boss, the service was also excellent...

Highly recommended, a great place to chill out with beer & BBQ.

3.5 of 5 star rating : )

How Cranes are erected

Ever wondered how cranes are constructed - especially when "they" are deemed to be the national "bird" of Singapore.

Just caught a glimpse of a newly erected crane at the worksite nearby - which will very well take away a fair bit of privacy around Punggol Edgedale Green on top of those irritating noises every morning...

Check out below of the pict & vids:

Time for Exercise. Tennis anyone?

It's been a long while since I sweat it out at the tennis courts. I guess it's time to put on those tennis shoes...

Bebe Teo, Country Head of JJVC shares on side effects of uncorrected Astigmatism Lens & Masking

Recently I was invited by Antics@play (PR Agency) to a press event by Johnson & Johnson Vision Care where we did a one-on-one exclusive interview with Bebe Teo Country Manager @ JJVC.

Bebe & her team at Johnson & Johnson Vision Care (JJVC) demystifies a very common eye condition known as Astigmatism & the side effects of "Masking" to "correct" it.  

Uncorrected Astigmatism lenses often causes eyestrain, eye fatigue, headaches, sensitivity to light, blurring or distortion of near and distant objects, etc.  

Bebe also officially announced appointed JJVC's Astigmatism Ambassadors Colin Low & Christina Liew-Gin.

Can't Drag & Drop, Missing Spotlight Problem with Mac OS X Leopard - Resolved!

Couple of days back I realised that I couldn't locate my Spotlight icon on the top right hand corner...and at the same time couldn't drag or move any files on my mac desktop (running OS X Leopard 10.5.8)...

and I also couldn't connect to my shared folders...

The immediately action would be to repair the "disk permission" using the Disk Utility & restart my macbook thereafter. Unfortunately, that didn't resolve my problem.

Following next is the decision to either
1)      re-install OS X 10.5 (Leopard) or

2)      upgrade to OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard).

I chose the latter. It seems to have immediately solve the inability to Drag & Drop & the missing Spotlight icon.

But I somewhat experience occasional hanging of iLife '09 apps like iPhoto & iMovie...

For now there's too many important video clips at stake (to edit) for me to re-install the iLife '09. I guess I'll have to wait till I finish editing them first before I really look into the iLife apps...
