Christmas in Singapore

Christmas in Singapore
05:58 AM December 24, 2008

A Christmas poem I thought I'd write

About my Singapore home for this magic night

It may be hot and wet, and not cold and white

But Christmas here is just as nice

This place I love, it has a different flair

Culturally diverse with predominantly black hair

Yes, people here are a tad kiasu

Always rushing around, but then, so do you

As friendly a folk as ever I have met

With love...


P.S: I wanna write by myself like this poem. But just now sharing X'mas spirits here. with loves,

Flying X'mas trees with me, its nice shooting?
Wherever I go, I got X'mas spirits
mEri . Xmas .
hApi New 2009! to You All

How we doing upon human rights?

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood(+sisterhood !) [Article 1, Universal declaration of Human Rights]

Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers [Article 19, Universal declaration of Human Rights]
(we united, we did something)
I want to gain those rights in Myanmar.
I loved to wear this t-shirt and some others which printed like this article on it, designed by Charles Cham- The Orangutan house from Malacca. While I visited there for three days last weekend public holidays, I bought three.(not boasting, coz I like them too much)
If we can get those rights, my blogger friend: Nay Phone Latt will be freedom at earliest.
But now,... so sad.

Singapore Vs. Myanmar

Visitor arrivals to Singapore dropped 4.1 percent to 739,000 in September from a year ago due to the global economic crisis and the downturn could continue into next year, said the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) on end of October. As a result of this, some friends from Myanmar who came and find tourism job like ticketing or some posts in hotel, they cannot get good job and they need to even return back to Myanmar.

For credit crisis,
DBS, Citi, HSB, OCBC etc are “greedy like hell” Everywhere they hold road shows to sell new deposit attractions and offer you to open Credit Card Accounts with them. At MRT, young part time workers, mostly university students hand me forms.etc. trying to get business. Yesterday, I found out young part time workers from citi bank trying with smiley face without tired. As I have already planned to open bank account in POSB bank, so as to save with low deposit.

Luckily, in Myanmar, mostly ordinary people don't know and understand about current global economic climate and then they can be happily and enjoy as usual. But some of family whose family members are working in oversea countries, are worrying about their's dependable buddy if he/she need to return back to Myanmar as a result of job cutbacks. Some families depending on overseas remittances may be in a very tough situation. But tourism in Myanmar, there are many tourist arrivals since starting of this month November. As I heard and know, all hotels are occupied fully and many tourism companies are handling tour packages with big groups as normal peak season. Feel better. If not, some big companies with huge overheads who wait and see tourism condition, want to closed their company after December if they cannot survive without jobs.

Wish people from all over the world, may overcome this current global economic crisis and got peaceful lives at soonest

Praying and praying also for myanmar people, even they cannot yet keep pace with advancing world, they may feel better like this.

Article 19 "Universal Declaration of Human Rights"

"Everyone has right to freedom of opinion and expression;
This right include freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers."

On 10th Nov, Monday, my friend, blogger Nay Phone Latt has sentenced to 20 years and six months imprisonment by a court in Rangoon’s Insein Prison.
Regarding with this, I still feel so upset till now and not comfortable to read some wrong information in some media mentioned his past actions both of his blog and real life.

Among them, regarding with The Committee to Protect Bloggers(CPB)'s gutting to learn about him, I drop comment as below:
Nice to know this committee to protect bloggers.

But I want to clarify that some point is wrong publishing.
1) He was convicted of contravening a public law act by posting a cartoon of the head of the Burmese military junta on his blog
Melody: No, it is not correct. Not on blog, may be in his email.

2) In September 2007 during the uprising, Nay Phone Latt’s blogs provided the world with information about what was going on in Burma
Melody: No, it is also not correct. He never do like that in his blog. He is only artist/author who did write poems, articles about his opinions and ideas without interference through his blog.

We just know him as ordinary youth but he has been to be NLD youth member once. And he never persuade any bloggers about politics. This electronic act is really really unfair treatment upon youth and all Myanmar people who are in IT field. This is my point of view without personal.

Web analytics tools

Web analytics tools help you track your site's statistics, allowing you to see how many people are looking at which page, what sites your visitors are coming from, who your users are, and more. This information can in turn help you measure traffic, understand your visitors' needs and behavior, and gauge click-through rates to new content or features.
Google Analytics is widely used and widely liked. If you're building a new Web site, or have a bit of HTML knowledge, Google is a great free option for surprisingly robust analytics.

If you find you're running into substantial limitations with Google Analytics, and you're ready to invest in a more predicable and powerful package, there are plenty of available options. The following tools give you substantially more control than any of the above packages; more powerful metrics; much more freedom to perform detailed user segmentation; the ability track detailed patterns; and, oftentimes, sophisticated data charts (such as trees or interactive layouts) that make it easier to track complex sites.
More Powerful Analytics Packages are: ClickTracks, WebTrends, WebSideStory HBX Analytics, Omniture's SiteCatalyst

Choosing a Package
The first question to ask yourself when deciding on an analytic package is: Google Analytics or not? Google Analytics is a good default option for a lot of organizations. That said, if you have a Control Panel and analytic tools available to you through a shared Web host, you may take a look at AWStats and Webalyzer to see if they'll meet your needs. Of course, if you're familiar with Web statistics tools and want more than the analytics and limited control that Google offers, picking a more powerful analytics package might be the way to go.

The right Web analytics package can make a big difference in your ability to understand your visitors' needs and your site's traffic. Choosing the right option means you'll be able to track exactly what people are doing on your site, get all your (and your boss') questions answered, and maybe even sleep a little better at night.

P.S: I just sharing what I read. More details, click here

I mean tools either free or not (including Google analytics tool). You can also check Alexa.com
As for me, my current work is tagging with Omniture in our clients' websites.
Today, I did check with WASP(WASP is the Web Analytics Solution Profiler, a specialized Firefox extension aimed at web analytics professionals Buy! who want to do quality assurance and understand how their web analytics solution is implemented.). We can use it after downloading to track some websites which ady implemented tagging of analytics tools. But Firefox version 3 must be to install it.

Web Trends Behavior and Analytics

I am so interested in Web Trends Behavior and Analytics now. I found that WebTrends Analytics is a Web analytics tool which collects and presents information about user behaviour on web sites. It collects data from Web server log files augmented with information from client-side scripts, presents results through a graphic user interface, and can present a large variety of data and analyses on many different kinds of web sites. The report presentation interface is highly configurable, allowing the administrator to select specific information to present. It has a large number of configuration parameters, and requires the administrator to understand HTTP and other Web technologies in detail. WebTrends Analytics can require considerable resources and governance for web sites with high traffic. (ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebTrends)

At the moment, I know these two products of Web Analytics: 1) Web Trends Analytics and
2) Omniture Web Analytics

If you already know about some others web analytics tools or if you also interested in it like me, Please kindly drop comments in this post.
While I were applying Omniture Web Analytics tools in my current job, I will also post about my discovering here.
Hope to get a chance to exchange knowledge for this topics.

F R I E N D S F O R E V E R

FRIENDS FOREVER

And so we talked all night about the rest of our lives
Where we're gonna be when we turn 25
I keep thinking times will never change
Keep on thinking things will always be the same
But when we leave this year we won't be coming back
No more hanging out cause we're on a different track
And if you got something that you need to say
You better say it rught nowcause you don't have another day
Cause we're moving on and we can't slow down

These memories are playing like a film without sound
And I keep thinking of the night in June
I didn't know much of love, but it came too soon
And there was me and you, and then it got real blue
Stay at home talkin' on the telephone and
We would get so excited, we'd get so scared
Laughing at our selves thinking life's not fair
And this is how it feels

Chours:
As we go on, we remember
All the times we had together
And as our lives change,
Come whatever
We will still be, friends forever

So if we get the big jobs and we make the big money
When we look back now, will that joke still be funny?
Will we still remember everything we learned in school?
Still be trying to break every single rule
Will little Bobby be the stockbroker man?
Can Heather find a job that won't enterfere with her tan?
I keep, I keep thinking that it's not goodbye
Keep on thinking it's a time to flyy
And this is how it feels

Repeat chours

La, la, la la; yeah, yeah, yeah
La, la, la, la, we will still be friends forever

Will we think about tomorrow like we think about now?
Can we survive it out there? Can we make it somehow?
I guess I thought that this would never end
And suddenly it's like we're women and men
Will the past be a shadow that will follow us 'round?
Will these memories fade when I leave this town
I keep, I keep thinking that it's not goodbye
Keep on thinking it's a time to fly

Repeat chours 3x

Moving new place in Yishun near Khatib MRT

Although I cannot catch a job in Singapore, I need to move to new place.
Till today start arriving here, I stayed at Toapayoh.
I really enjoyed to stay there.
And I was very happy to get a chance to visit Toapayoh Central and do shopping frequently. I used to have meals like breakfast at Yakun Kaya Toast, lunch at Burger King and dinner at KFC. Whenever I feel boring, I can do window shopping there. Eating a lot of snacks and fried meats like Old Chang kee. I can also easily buy for cooking things at NTUC(fair price). I like to eat ice-cream, yogurt and fruits including small tomatoes. So, I used to buy them frequently. Okay, I talked a lot my likes and habits.
This night, I already moved to new place in Yishun near Khatib MRT. This new place also convenient for transportation and have many shops to buy easily. Food Court also just go down. Hope all goes well with me at this new place. Once I settle well here, I wish good luck of job hunting also may knock my fortune door. In Myanmar proverbs, there is the meaning that right place for success("ဘူမိနက္သန္ေနရာမွန္").

Would u eat here?

The 'Modern Toilet' eatery:
Modern Toilet is a Taipei restaurant. It accommodates 100 seats with each made from toilet bowls. The specialties at the restaurant accompany sink faucets and gender-coded 'WC' signs that appear on the three-story structure. The food is served in mini plastic toilet bowls. The toilet rolls that serve for wiping hand and mouth are hung above the tables, which may resemble glass-topped jumbo bathtubs.

During 2month stay in Singapore, I have visited to many places like Handerson Waves(already posted it and while its posted just two times but actually so far even 4times heehe), Orchid Garden, Esplande, Bird Park, Sentosa, East Coast, Habourfront(Vivo City), and so on. As I think, I just left to visit Singapore Zoo, Singapore Eye(flyer) and dining in cable car. Very nice trip in Singapore and did enjoy too much. Watching film(Red Cliff), shopping a lot, trying local foods, eating famous cuisines are included in my recreation and leisure. For adventure, starting arrival, riding MRT and buses because I used to lose my ways and take opposite direction. I also participated and enjoy two meet-up with Myanar IT professionals and Myanmar Bloggers in Singapore.

Now I am in Singapore...

Since 12th July, I've arrived at Singapore.

Now, living at Toapayoh Lorong 1.
5minutes walking to Toapayoh Bus Interchange and MRT.
So, very convenient for transportation.
Being visited somewhere and being hunting good job of web developer.
In Myanmar, though I have worked as Sales and Marketing Manager in Tourism Industry, its not useful to hunt relevant job without holding approved diploma or degree from here.
So So.
I'm looking for a position in Software Development. I 'm qualified for Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist.I have 1year working experience in Software Development. I was working as Web Developer in Yangon till last Month. (If you want to hire me as web developer, you can kindly check my resume in Monster, Jobstreet and Jobs Central for details. hehe promoting here) I also worked as Sales and Marketing Manager(including Web Design and developing user friendly Web Interfaces) in Tourism Industry. I'm sure that I can work as either a good team player or member with team to make project success. I can participate in each step of software development process. I do believe that I can get a good job here at soonest.
555 Melody...(Encouraging by myself :P )

On 23rd July and 25th July, I have visited Handerson Waves, it is the highest pedestrain bridge in singapore, even two times. :P

Nice View with me :)
If you want to go and visit there, you can take bus No. 145 from Toapayoh Interchange and get off once you see that bridge in my photo.
For return, take the same bus no. from opposite site bus stop. Isn't it? hehe
Enjoy your visit there.

Brilliant, isn't it?

And look at this symmetry:

1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321
11111 x 11111 = 123454321
111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x 1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111 = 12345678987654321



Now, take a look at this...


101%



From a strictly mathematical viewpoint:



What Equals 100%?
What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?

We have all been in situations where someone wants you to
GIVE OVER 100%.

How about ACHIEVING 101%?


What equals 100% in life?


Here's a little mathematical formula that might help
answer these questions:


If:

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Is represented as:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.


If:


H-A-R-D-W-O- R- K


8+1+18+4+23+ 15+18+11 = 98%


And:

K-N-O-W-L-E- D-G-E


11+14+15+23+ 12+5+4+7+ 5 = 96%


But:

A-T-T-I-T-U- D-E


1+20+20+9+20+ 21+4+5 = 100%



THEN, look how far the love of God will take you:



L-O-V-E-O-F- G-O-D


12+15+22+5+15+ 6+7+15+4 = 101%


Therefore, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that:

While Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will
get you there, It's the Love of God that will put you over the top!

Me and 100days battle

During these days, I am still busying with volunteer actions on storm
victims relief and my on job training, I want to share about my 100
days battle. I hate War. This is just battle of life whoever face and
fight to succeed. Last over 100days, I have been to read one book
which related Christian while I went to beauty saloon to have my hair
cut and beautified to shape my eyebrow. :P

In that book, after 40days, everyone can change their lives
accordingly. During those days, need to review, change mind and soul,
praise God's bless. As for me, I was so interested in it and wanted to
apply anything on that idea. Thence, I reviewed my current condition
and life status without hesitation. Although time is knowledge age,
even I invested my time and effort in Tourism, I cannot rich and get
high living standard till now. I will still need to invest money to
operate own business. So, I would like to change my career after next
100days. I decided to go abroad to work as professional in IT field on
8th February 2008.

According to my decision, I attended Industrial ASP.Net Course and
prepared to sit Microsoft Exams. On 17th May, 100days take time. Then,
I sit Exam on 18th May for 70-536(Application Development Foundation)
and 70-528(Web Based Client Development). Now it is time to be
boasted. (Hehee)

Could you say Congratulations on passing my recent Microsoft
Certification exams, with a widely-recognized validation of my skills
on Microsoft technology? Also, nice to find connections with millions
of experienced IT professionals around the world at events and online

 UN warns another storm headed toward Myanmar
 Posted: 09 May 2008 1849 hrs

 BANGKOK - The United Nations warned Friday that another storm was
headed in the direction of Myanmar, which could complicate the
slow-moving relief efforts from deadly Cyclone Nargis.

An estimated 1.5 million people have been left homeless by the
disaster, which has killed tens of thousands, and the storm could pose
serious risks to those battling disease, said Richard Horsey, a UN
relief spokesman.


Fast Facts

 "Our meteorological people tell us there's likely to be fairly strong
rainfall in the next seven days," he told AFP in neighbouring
Thailand.

"That's going to be a big issue with unpaved roads. Heavy rainfall
could complicate things for all those people going without shelter,"
Horsey said.

"If there's an epidemic of water-borne disease and a lack of shelter
when a storm comes in ... if we have another storm coming into the
delta, that's going to be a significant concern for all those people
without shelter."

The country's military, which has run Myanmar with an iron fist for
almost half a century, said earlier that it welcomed shipments of
supplies but was "not ready" to let in foreign aid workers, including
disaster experts.

"If we don't get this relief effort up to full scale quickly, there's
significant risk of a second round of this disaster which could
potentially kill as many people as the initial cyclone," Horsey said.

BURMA CYCLONE - NGO APPEALS

Another Message:


From Vicky Bowan

BURMA/MYANMAR: CYCLONE NARGIS APPEALS



The following experienced NGOs have all been established on the ground in Burma for many years, including in Irrawaddy, Bago, Yangon Divisions and Rakhine and Mon States.  They are variously already conducting assessments
and starting to provide support to the populations hit by the cyclone.

The websites give links to their Nargis appeals, and will allow you to claim Gift Aid for your donation if you are a UK taxpayer, maximising the effectiveness.


Save the Children (UK)

Have launched a £5million appeal

There are also a number of small NGOs and private initiatives, some of which wish to remain below the radar, so are not included in this list

P.S. Sorry if you receive duplicate copies of this email....


Give Direct Emergency Relief to Burmese Cyclone Victims
www.shelterboxusa.org

You can provide immediate, direct relief to Burmese cyclone victims.This relief will go entirely to the victims, not be sidetracked by government agencies, politics or administrative siphoning.

ShelterBox USA is poised to send a first shipment of 200 ShelterBoxes to Burma.  These ShelterBoxes will provide 2,000 cyclone victims immediate shelter plus the tools needed to boil water, cook food and bury waste.  ShelterBox USA is a non-profit, international service project of the Rotary Club.  The Rotary Club is a worldwide organization of people whose goal is to come together and give back.

These ShelterBoxes are currently pre-positioned in Dubai.  A fully trained, on-the-ground response team will directly distribute the ShelterBoxes in Burma.  All that is necessary is the go-ahead from the Myanmar government.

The charge d'affaires of the Myanmar Embassy in Washington was personally contacted today with the offer of 200 donated ShelterBoxes by a highly placed Burmese-American.  A formal request to approve ShelterBox relief has been forwarded to Yangon.  The government has
already indicated its readiness to accept international aid if it is non-political.

Each ShelterBox contains a 10-person tent, bedding, water

Thingyan Traditional Treats

The Thingyan Water Festival is the most joyous and hilarious of the many festivals in Myanmar, where everyone irrespective of race, creed, caste or colour can enjoy in carefree abandon within the bounds of cultural context. Thingyan normally falls on 12 or 13 April of every year and lasts 3 or 4 drenching days of singing, dancing, taunting, ogling, boozing and followed by the advent of the new year by the Myanmar Lunar calendar.
About Thingyan Festival, if you want to know more detail, you can visit and read here(my last year's post): http://melodymaung.myanmarbloggers.org/2007/04/just-corner-to-myanmar-thingyan-water.html

Mont Lone Ye Paw

"Mont Lone Ye Paw" or floating sweet dumpling is the traditional treat in the Thingyan Water Festival. The recipe is a simple one indeed. Glutinous rice and ordinary rice are mixed in 1:4 ratio, jaggery, a sweet candy made from the sap of toddy juice extracted from the palm tree, and coconuts are the ingredients. Here is how it is prepared. Firstly the rice is washed clean and soaked in water for the night. The next day rice is rinsed, crushed to flour in a grinding mill. Then it is put in a cotton bag and hung for some time to drain the water. Then the dough is kneaded till it becomes pliable. In the meantime jaggery balls are chopped to the size of peanuts. The dough is flattened in the palm of the hand and the jaggery pieces are put in the middle and rolled to form a small rounded ball, the size of an olive so it can be easily eaten. A fire is lit in an open space and a large pot of water is out over the fire and allowed to boil, Then the raw sweetmeat balls are thrown into the boiling water. They all submerge and come afloat when cooked. Then they are taken out with a sieve, put on a saucer and sprinkled with grated coconuts and eaten with forks, or in a simpler way with the fingers. Just as simple as that, don't you think?
Preparing that sweetmeat for the Thingyan treat needs a little organization. A group of comely damsels are chosen to make the round dumplings. Naturally they are dressed in all their finery as to attract an admiring crowd of equally agile youth. Young men are also recruited to do the heavy chores such as lifting the pots, carrying water, stoking the fire and washing the dishes. Live or recorded music is played to the accompaniment of quick-beat Thingyan dances, singing, laughter and pouring of water. There is a lot of jest and pun, some provocative in the Myanmar Language, meaning no harm is taken in the festive mood of the occasion. "ေပၚျပီလားေဟ႕၊ ေပၚျပီေဟ႕ " "Paw be lar hey? Paw be hey!" is the chorus while the sweetmeat is being cooked. Literally the query is whether the sweetmeat is afloat. But the word "Paw" carries a double meaning. It also alludes to the fact that certain parts which should not be exposed is now in danger of exposure. To quote the Readers Digest, the phrase "Pardon, is your slip showing?" will be an apt smile, a little lerry at that. Such jests, quite commonplace in this festive mood, are taken in good humour, excepting some blushing of the cheeks of some coy girls, some sulky pouts, and some equally crisp, saucy repartees, eliciting roars of laughter. Some girls, intent on mischief surreptitiously put some hot chilies instead of jaggery into the dumplings and serve it to the unlucky beau to have a bite, while they wait expectantly for the chilies burns the beau's palate followed by joyous peals of laughter.

There are a lot of endearing features of the Myanmar Thingyan Festival. Beautiful, isn't it?
Merry-wet Thingyan and Happy Mynmar New Year to you all together with us.

DO YOU LOVE SOMEONE THIS MUCH?

I got this fantastic story form friend's forwarding mail.
I am pleased to share to read it.

A girl and guy were speeding over 100 mph on the road on a motorcycle...

Girl: Slow down. I'm scared.
Guy: No this is fun.
Girl: No its not. Please, its too scary!
Guy: Then tell me you love me.
Girl: Fine, I love you. Slow down!
Guy: Now give me a BIG hug.
Girl hugs him
Guy: Can you take my helmet off & put it on yourself? Its bugging me.

In the paper the next day :( A motorcycle had crashed into a building
because of brake failure. Two people were on it, but only one had
survived.

The truth was that halfway down the road, the guy realized that his
brakes broke, but he didn't want to let the girl know. Instead, he
had her say she loved him & felt her hug him one last time, then had
her wear his helmet so that she would live even though it meant that
he would die.

If there is anyone in life you love this much, please send this.
Forward this to all your good friends on-line to show them that you.

DO YOU LOVE SOMEONE THIS MUCH?
