Reflecting on 3 years of ReactJS (2015-2018)

Fri, 06 Apr 2018 15:58:21 +0000

We did React 0.12, 0.14, 15, now 16 (with create-react-app) over the span of 3 years (1 month shy) It’s the most ridiculous engineering platform I’ve ever used, and yet the most coherent dev community I’ve ever experience, in my 2 decades on web dev work. Can you imagine porting and upgrading the code base […]

Keep on moving with the times

Fri, 06 Apr 2018 15:08:13 +0000

Can we stop? No. Can we walk? Not really. We have to run. Some will run and fall down, then, pick ourselves up, and keep running. We will take breaks. Have plenty of rest, but after that pick up yourself and keep running. When can we walk? Well sir, I can’t say, maybe never – […]

Still on WordPress, going minimalist

Tue, 26 Dec 2017 01:57:20 +0000

Into year 14 of blogging. Still here! But getting really tired of decorating it. Just wanna write sometimes, and not into the blackhole called facebook. Picking a minimalist theme for 2018. No deco. Only for those who wants to read. Happy 2018!

Happy 2018: Pulling the Bow Back

Sun, 24 Dec 2017 10:26:00 +0000

Goals 3 big items for 2018 1) Picking the right battles 2) Picking the big battles 3) Picking battles before it’s too late The right battles are hard to identify. We are past year #4 and have enough ears on the ground – so it’s critical to ignore the noise by media companies, well meaning […]

Hungry like a pack of wolves, but patient like a python

Mon, 09 Oct 2017 16:40:25 +0000

Looks like I haven’t spent the time to write in the past few months or so. I’m going to put down a couple of thoughts from the past few months all in one jumbo post here. Don’t make an industry based on promises Most don’t realise but as an SME / self proprietor I spend […]

Changing the world, 18 minutes at a time

Sun, 19 Mar 2017 14:23:40 +0000

If last year’s TEDxPetalingStreet was a harrowing first time experience, this round at TEDxNUS it was slightly better. Spent the Saturday attending TedX talk in NUS, where aspiring speakers from different background come together to share their vision and dream. Jiin Joo once again sharing the vision of drones in agriculture, where technology is actually […]

Paralysed as a means of renewal

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 15:08:52 +0000

A conversation with wifey this afternoon revealed an annual pattern. Every year, around December, I will suddenly be paralysed. I won’t work despite the mountain of tasks to complete before the new year, I won’t talk to most people unless it’s impossible not to talk to them, and I will spend many hours staring into […]

Applying Stoic Virtues in 2017

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 02:45:40 +0000

It’s end September. Years back, I would say “wake me up when September ends”, as it’s usually the busiest part of the year where most deliverables for the year had been fleshed out, and building was in full steam, and I would be diving so deep into things I couldn’t change course even if i […]

Reflections on the Marshmallow Experiment

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 18:20:14 +0000

Nice or not, my lao ya attempt to pose with my birthday present: my first bike shirt from decathlon at only $10.99 🙂 I know, I left my birthday on Facebook to trigger the world’s most impersonal algorithm. Birthdays doesn’t mean much to me anymore, even the Swensen discount I get from AIA has become […]

Hwa Chong College Anthem

Sun, 15 May 2016 04:45:56 +0000

Love how one discovers an old work being performed and published from the age before YouTube. For the record, the piece was first drafted in 1999 for sports day (after dreading for one year that the piano version had no kick). I understand that Darence had made attempts to recover lost parts over the years […]
