It was reported in the Straits Times Special Report on 06 July 2013 that a Singapore Non-Government Organisation (NGO) called Lien Aid has helped in building tanks and water distribution system in China in collaboration with the China Association of Poverty Alleviation and Development (Capad). This is interesting and any effort to help the less fortunate should be commended.
The report further stated that "the two organisations hope to improve w...

Here is a short test to show how much you know or don't know about gambling.

Answer TRUE or FALSE for the Questions 1 to 9 and write down your answer for Question 10.


Q1. The longer you go without a win, the more likely you will win the next round. For example, the longer you roll two dice without getting double six, the more likely it is to come up the next roll.


Q2. When playing the Lotto or Toto, the numbers 3, 19, 21, 30, 34, 48 are more likely to come up than ...

New Year Resolution

Posted by KK THAM on Thursday, January 7, 2010, In : General 
When making New Year Resolutions, do not be too ambitious.  Make resolutions that are achievable and have not more than three.  Why?  It's easier to take small bites and small successes encourage us to push on.  Having too many resolutions diffuse our attention and when we lose focus, chances are we are not going to achieve anything.  Beside, many good things come in three, but this is the subject of another blog.  Here are my three new year resolutions:

1. Spend More Time with Family & Friend...

What you do reveal about you

Posted by K K THAM on Monday, October 5, 2009, In : General 
What you eat and what you do often reveal more about yourself than you think.
For example, you take the "Dessert Personality Quiz Test" and your favourite dessert would reveal what kind of personality you possess.

Your favourite ice cream flavour also says a lot about you.  In a flavorology study directed by Dr. Alan R. Hirsch , it was revealed  that “distinct personalities corresponded with ice cream flavors.”   What is your flavour? Find out more

According to Natalie Josef, Managing Edi...

Over Fifty--Living Your Second Half Life

Posted by K K Tham on Monday, September 21, 2009, In : General 
(Originally posted on September 18, 2009 but re-posted due to some difficulty with this site builder)

Welcome!  This blog is dedicated to those of us over fifty years old (or shall I say, fifty years young).  I shall therefore write on subjects that most of us would normally be interested in, such as but not limited to aging, fitness, retirement and active living.

I borrowed the term "Second Half Life" from radio isotopes which I had used in performing non-destructive tests in the seventies.  A...

Notes on Brick Walls

When clearing my bookshelf, I came across an old book published in 2010, The Last Lecture, which was an International Bestseller at that time, having sold five million copies.  Flipping through the pages that had turned yellow, this quote struck a chord in me because only recently I was discussing with a friend how to handle brick walls that attempt to stop us.

Flee 9 to 5

Whether you are retired, retrenched or re-organizing your career choice, the book Flee 9 to 5, Get 6 - 7 figures and do what you love by Ben Angel provides plenty of suggestions.

I particularly like the Six publicity formulas you can use to help you get more media coverage at page 143.

It happens. It happens every day. People grow apart. Friends walk hand in hand until they find that their parts no longer intertwine. Lovers kiss to notice that this kiss that once meant weak knees and beating hearts no longer tastes of sweet love but of bitter goodbye. You once poured your heart out to the boy who was your best friend but when you see him again, it’s like the silence swallows you whole and you can’t think of one word to say. So you stare and stare and try to figure out what happened to create this chasm, this black abyss that opened up between you. And most of the time it’s not an argument that tore you apart but life itself. It’s you and it’s them. You changed. You grew up. You made decisions. You moved on. Things that used to mean the world now mean nothing and people that used to make you feel like you could climb the highest mountain now make you feel like drowning at the bottom of the sea. And that’s okay. Because people come and people go and it happens for a reason. Some friendships aren’t meant to last a lifetime, some people can’t be kept, some relationships aren’t worth holding on to. So let go. If they don’t make you happy anymore, let them go.
