As a lecturer, one of my responsibilities is to record students’ attendance. At least for me, this data can be used later to determine whether I should give lenience to some of them in special circumstances. COVID-19 changes that definition of “attending”. One can just show up at the beginning of a virtual class then… Continue reading Recording Attendance
We, computer programmers, all have this mantra: “No, I will not fix your computer”. It made sense, because we study hard to solve complicated problems, that is solvable by having a machine works for us. Fixing computers and networks are the job for the IT people. It was engrained to me when I graduated and… Continue reading Yes, I will fix your computer (for $250/hour)
It feels good to write again, after a long time of busy days in year 2013. I write this, to keep the spirit of writing, as well as to, well, keep at least one post per year on this blog. Boy, I really miss those days when I have time to write. May be sometime.… Continue reading 2013 in Review
In case you didn’t know, I have spent about a year in Bandung building this website to help people navigate using public transport. In the meantime I also teach at Universitas Katolik Parahyangan. For both reason, I take the local buses, called angkot, to transport me back and forth between my home and office. Interestingly,… Continue reading Faith in Humanity Restored, with Public Transport

I have been occupied with a lot of activities for my startup project with my friend Budi; and other small stuffs (relocation, catechism, etc…).

There were ups and downs during my stay here, but all gave a wonderful experience. It all started when I… Continue reading Sayonara Singapore!
If there is the time I don’t like Singapore, it could be this weekend. It happened few days before my last day here, so it could be bias though. However, read on and you judge me. Last Saturday, I went to the library to read a book I was interested at. I went out from… Continue reading Get lost, in the name of development!
I love Sunday, because it’s a holiday. I love Saturday, because it’s a holiday, too. I love Friday, because it’s the last day before Holiday. I love Thursday, because tomorrow is TGIF (Thank God It’s Friday). I love Wednesday, because I would start to enjoy the days starting from tomorrow. I love Monday and Tuesday,… Continue reading Pascal’s Guide to Everyday Happiness
That five weeks has been very interesting to me. I’ve flown four different return trips (two were company paid), to five cities in four countries, using five different airlines. At some point I felt like George Clooney in Up in the Air movie. Two of my journeys were recorded in my blog, but I don’t… Continue reading Travel Marathon Recap
It’s been a very long time since my last post. During my semester term at NUS, it’s practically impossible for me to write a story. Anyway, just a short post on a tip to get a seat in the MRT (Singapore’s train system) when you land at Changi Airport and want to go towards the… Continue reading Singapore MRT Tips: Get a Seat from Airport to City
