Office fun

Does not matter if he doesnt look the cutest. Something about a nice lean body, shirtless with working pants that is bound to lighten up the office environment. Something to break the Monday blues that is on its way.

Does a car make you more desirable?

Was tempted to sell my car as i was not in Singapore the past 1 year. Then occasionally i am tempted to upgrade my car …oh may be to a convertible sports car (ahem cc). Then again i want the carefree, no commitment, live anywhere, kind of lifestyle.

Any case since i was not able to sell my car, i am likely to keep it till i am back in Sg next year. One of my new resolution/goal for next year is to drive my car to Malaysia more often. I should not constrain myself to tiny Sg. In HK people go to Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Macau or Zhuhai all the time. In Manila, driving 2 hrs to Tagaytay just for lunch is considered normal. Why should i restrict myself within Sg.

iPhone4 parts and metal back

I want this iPhone 4 back. It is not a case. It is not stick on. You actually have to remove the glass back to replace it with this. Check out this link to see how easy it is. Add a Metal Back to Your iPhone 4

If you like some other material, or color or any other spare parts like the now not included SIM ejector or sim tray etc … check out this site at cnn.cn. It is damn cool for the geeky DIY. But will see if i can find shops in HK.

recovering a few hours a day with digital cleansing

I have started on a digital cleansing of my lifestyle and it is helping me recover 2 hrs a day as well as a much needed peace of mind. This is all thanks to the 4-hour work week audio book from Timothy Ferriss.

Steps i have taken:

  1. Turn off all email push notification. I used to get stressed and irritated when i hear the phone vibrate or beep as it receives emails. It often disrupted my sleep or movie watching. I am learning to resist checking my email every 10 mins and with push notification off, i just check my emails once or twice a day at home. At work i have email on all the time as i work on that like task list. But with push notification off, i dont stress over emails outside of work hours.
  2. Remove most news and tech blogs from my google reader list. I used to have a few hundreds of unread articles a day in my reader list. Many of the news and tech blogs also repeat the same evens. Example 80% of my unread articles this morning is on Microsoft revealing a whole array of Windows Mobile 7 phones. One is enough. I have pared down rss feed to a minimum by selecting only 2 to 3 tech blog sites and removing all news feed. Will manually check the news if i need.
  3. Unsubscribe from podcasts. I used to have a lot of podcasts from news to tech podcasts. A lot of them get downloaded but never had time to listen to. For tech podcasts, a lot of them are also repeating the same news. Have decided to unsubscribe from them, may be save 1 or 2.

Now i feel i have recovered at least 2 hrs a day and i feel lighter mentally. But it is important to fill up that recovered time and one of the thing i have always put off on doing with the excuse of no time is exercise. Thus the goal is to lighten my digital information load and channel the freed up time to regular exercise. Let’s see how it goes and how long i can sustain it. ¬†Will need the below inspiration to keep me going.
