Kids say the darndest things

On one of the obscure TODAY articles I wrote about blogging in the classroom, there was a comment left today referring to the Wee Shu Min debacle, which alerted me to the Wee Shu Min debacle, which would have gone completely unnoticed because I am such a blurblock when it comes to matters of national importance.

All I can say is, who do you think you are, Wee Shu Min? Xiaxue?

But good job, girl, for getting yours and your father’s name into Technorati’s top 5 search terms this past week.

So much for in-flight wi-fi

Bummer

I received this email from Connexion by Boeing which said that Boeing would be discontinuing Connexion by Boeing. The upside is that passengers will be able to use the service free of charge from now till the end of the year depending on the airline you were travelling with.

I remember using the service on Singapore Airlines at US$26.95 for 24hrs, physician which is pretty worth it if you were on an 18 hour flight, I think. There was no indication on their website today on whether the free service was available.

Political blogs something something

Lianhe Zaobao 14 Oct 06

The Lianhe Zaobao political desk ran a story today about blogging and politics. This is a great way to learn Mandarin – you reply to their email questions in English and they translate it for you.

And knowing that they’re known for accurate reporting, I now know exactly what it is in Mandarin that I said in English. Cool.

P.S. You don’t look your age, Alex.

Street directories are doggy

Google Maps

If you need directions, Google Maps are great, and in the U.S. you can even download them onto your phone. This is really useful considering we know how detailed some of the Google Maps and Google Earth stuff can be.

In Singapore, presumably because it’s not 2015 yet, we’re stuck with using streetdirectory.com, which is pretty nifty already:

Streetdirectory.com Maps for mobile

See?

Take a closer look, and you’ll know that they’re striving to do away with paper and embrace electronic media:

But wait, what's so 'doggy' about a book?

No. It’s not because all the photos depict Ang Mohs happily using all manner of mobile devices! It’s because it says that street directory books are ‘doggy’ and outdated.

I do own several doggy books but none of them have maps. Guess I’ll have to throw those out too.

WTF? Loose what?!
Loose what, didja say?

Sometimes, placing Adsense ads on your website can be quite funny as it uses keywords on your blog to display ‘relevant’ advertising. But in no post do I remember writing anything about anyone having or being a loose vagina.

Also, LVR must stand for Loose Vagina Reconstruction? Yes? No? Any cosmetic surgeons want to elucidate or correct?
