10-day trip to London for only $700. Here's how he did it: "Using my own travel hacking tips, 10 days in London only cost me $710 USD. That works out to be roughly $70 USD per day. And that's not just my day-to-day expenses. That includes EVERYTHING - my flight to London, my hotel, transportation, food, drinking and attractions."

why we must turn off our mobile devices when we take a plane ride: "Let’s assume that just 1 percent of those passengers left a cellphone, e-reader or laptop turned on during takeoff or landing. That would mean seven million people on 11 million flights endangered the lives of their fellow passengers. Yet, in 2010, no crashes."

When Noel Boyd came to me a few months ago to work on a new tattoo show for R3LOAD Network, I thought why not but the truth is I don't really want to do just another tattoo show. I told him if we wanna do this together, this new show has to be something different and really unique. There needs to be a compelling reason for people to want to watch the show every week.
So how do you make a tattoo show different? How about giving 10 weeks for Noel to get 10 tattoos - one a week - from 10 of the most promising and talented tattoo artists in Singapore? And then let the viewers decide what tattoo he gets or the location where the tattoo will be on his body. Now that's interesting! Go watch Tattooed! The first episode is now out on R3LOAD Network.
I'm very satisfied with the first episode of Tattooed. I really think we have put out a good show and I'm sure the viewers will enjoy watching Tattooed. The initial response from the viewers has been fantastic. Some say Tattooed is as good as the other hit show that I'm directing, Singapore Haunted. That's definitely a compliment. Thanks people!
Tattooed is directed by me and co-produced by both Noel and myself for R3LOAD Network. Go to the Tattooed Facebook page and like it.

Steve Jobs in Carbonite iPhone case is a brilliant idea. Too bad, the folks at Apple didn't think it is: "Well it was fun while it lasted. Yesterday, Society6 was issued a cease and desist from Apple's lawyers. So I'm sorry to say that the cases and skins are no longer available." Wow! I didn't know Apple has the right to Steve Job's image.
