TODAY: Of gentle pokes, a lighter touch

0706VOL022_m.jpgMr Miyagi on that Bak Chor Mee podcast and how new and traditional media co-exist

THIS past week saw a flurry of activity in which I was personally involved, together with my blogging and podcasting partner Lee Kin Mun, aka mrbrown (www.mrbrown.com).

We both spoke at the Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts’ Public Relations Academy’s annual conference on the topic of new media and how it has affected traditional sources of information.

We didn’t expect the huge response from the press that followed Minister for Information, Communications and the Arts Lee Boon Yang’s speech that morning, where he spoke about adopting a “light touch approach in dealing with the everyday use of the Internet”.
In the event, he also congratulated mrbrown (hey, what about me?) on the “clever and funny work” we did in producing the now infamous “Bak Chor Mee” podcast.

Polling Day

ReflectionsI was part of the 3/4 of the population of this fair country not required to vote today. You’d imagine I’d be ambivalent about the whole thing, and you’d mostly be right.

Whatever the outcome, I’m not gonna say things like, ‘You deserve the representatives you vote for’.

Instead of mulling over whose gonna lose what seat and by how much, I went and ate possibly the most expensive piece of cake, weight-wise and otherwise. $19.90 before tax, for a 7cm diameter carrot cake garnished with sweet potato flakes, white chocolate and mascarpone icing. But it was nice.

Non-sequitur, is it? Don’t care lah. Bak Chor Mee Man is on holiday, no need to exprain.

You been warned
Not say we nair tell you hor.
