It was a short notice, and I booked a last minute flight to Singapore to attend the World E-Commerce Summit. In part to support Jaz Lai‘s event, and also to meet and network with people here.
Frankly I had nothing much beyond a vague agenda and because I’m not into E-Commerce, I had little expectations. So imagine my surprise at how productive the weekend was – meeting my Coaching Client (and in the process of closing another!), getting things done with my behind-the-scenes business partner, hanging out with Isabel, and also meeting new and old faces alike!
Suddenly I wished the weekend was longer.
A game I would play nearly every weekend since July 2009, but in the last two years I didn’t play anywhere near as often. In fact, played Airsoft only a total of 3 times last year.
And this was the third game for the year to date.
At my peak, I had a total of 15 Airsoft guns in my collection! But last year, I forecast playing this sport less thus I sold most of my toys away and keep a handy 4.
To think I spent most of my weekends in my 20s playing this. It’s been great fun, however I had also missed out on other things I could have done.
While I remain focus and committed to growing my Internet business, I find myself doing a wider variety of activities in the last 12 to 18 months alone: dated more, joined obstacle courses, attending social dances, and this coming weekend parkour and freerunning basics.
This means playing Airsoft a lot less than before but one thing is for sure: every time I’m back to the jungle, it’s always home away from home.
We should have moved to the new office premise earlier last month. But as you know, there are times that things don’t go according to plan.
So imagine my relief when the private lift access was repaired and restored after 6 weeks of waiting and chasing in between.
This has sped up works and just in the nick of time (our Tenancy Agreement at the previous unit expired earlier this month) my staff and I had moved everything to a new, bigger place!
There a few outstanding renovation works and touching up, and we moved in a hurry to be fully operational.
So what’s different?
The new place is bigger (1,800 sq feet vs 1,064 sq feet previously)
Somewhat unconventional, but we have our own private lift access – which was also the source of a lot of frustrations; we are literally the first occupant in this side of the Tower and the lift had not worked… until we came about.
Now that are past the speed bumps, here’s what the new Musemancer looks like.
Thanks to WeBuildEasy? team for their amazing work!
It will be close to 3 years since I’ve started a full-time team and office, and looking back.. we sure came quite a way. The best part is: there’s still MORE to come!
Office Warming Party will be in October, to coincide with our 3 year anniversary.
Gardens By The Bay…
Universal Studios Singapore…
It’s been a couple of years since I visited I-City. And wow, a lot of changes since… all good ones!
For starters, there’s a new Red Carpet Wax Museum – new to me at least; it wasn’t here before. The Wax Museum prides itself as being the only animated wax figure museum in the world (although it appears to be limited to just the few figures at the entrance)
But I have to say the amount of things to see here is generous, and even better than the Madame Tussauds in Hong Kong!
Checked out the Trick Arts Museum too. Been here on every time I came here. I’d say only about 20% changes since then – nothing much though.
Next stop: Snow Land. Quite some changes since. The maze had been bulldozed and what I think will be an Egyptian theme part of the place is under construction. The place is overall brighter and well lid this time.
Went around I-City to check out other places and mostly watch the rides rather than get on one. The whole place operates by a card points system, that you have to purchase from any of the Ticket Counters here. The card is then used for entrance to rides, museums, exhibitions, and more.
It’s somewhat surprising that even though I-City has more to offer since its introduction a few years ago, the queues for rides weren’t that long for a weekend. (Of course, a good thing for me… nearly no wait time!)
This is definitely the place to take your girl to for a date or outing!
