Rolling Through East Coast Parkway

home
At some point, it dawned on me that my intentions to bring a camera were ruined because leaving the house before having a coffee meant I wasn't awake enough to remember to take the battery for the camera off the charger. So all the photos here were taken with my phone…

Cherry Tree Shows We Still Have More To Learn

home
I have to admit, when I hear scientists don't know the reason for something, my ears perk up. Not that I'm looking for them to fail. It's that we tend to think of scientists as know-it-alls and that there isn't anything left to explore. Now I'm not talking about the kid who did research to learn where it might be more painful to get stung by a bee. But should any conversation arise about a guy who got stung on his junk, I will say that…


They Deserve A Hand!

home
I love what Ellen does for women and standing up for what's right. This time rather than addressing the problem directly she makes light of it and in my opinion really deserves a hand.


Phobias Aren’t Usually Funny Things

home
Let’s face it, we all know someone who has a phobia of some sort. So I came up with a way to sorta have some fun with that. First you need to find something that many people fear if you have any hope for this to work. My guess is that things like spiders, snakes or perhaps even clowns would work for this gag…


Was Pulp Fiction Really About King Arthur?

home
Now here is food for thought, Taking the award-winning movie ‘Pulp Fiction’ and comparing it to King Arthur and actually finding so many points of similarity makes more sense that you might have thought. Perhaps that's what Quentin Tarantino had in mind with this movie, or perhaps it’s simply a coincidence. Here, check this out…


Horoscopes as CNY Approaches

home
So as Chinese New Year (CNY) approaches, we got to talking about horoscopes. This coming year is my year as I was born under the sign of the horse, though for years I never knew this due to the fact the American Chinese restaurants have the dates as '66 being the horse and '67 the goat. But it turns out...


Mayhem And Organization

cut tree
I've got a long-time joke with my wife that my motto should be "mayhem everywhere I go" due to my joking nature. An example of this happened just today. A little back story is in order to explain how we got to the point that I utterly confused a cashier…


Blank Calendar

home
One of the joys of any New Year is the calendar. It's blank! That's 365 empty pages just waiting for a story to be written. Goals to be set, plans to be made and lots of in-between time that make up a year full of endless possibilities…


Happy Thanksgiving 2013!

home
It may be an American-only holiday, but I think the idea of taking a day to reflect on what we should be grateful for is a healthy idea. So thanks for visiting this site. Click through to see all I’m thankful for this year…


Little Johnny - Is He Too Smart For The First Grade?

home
A first-grade teacher, Ms Morgan, was having trouble with one of her students. The teacher asked, “Johnny, what's your problem?” Johnny answered, “I'm too smart for the 1st grade. My sister is in the 3rd grade and I'm smarter than she is! I think I should be in the 3rd grade too!”


Wheels In Motion

home
Sidecars on a motorbike invoke images of an amazing adventure. That is, of course, if you can fit in it properly! My wife and I were given a ride by our buddy James and we each quite naturally have different takes on the experience…


AWOL's Lunch and How It Has Made Him a Legend

home
I realised I have failed to write about some of the more mundane things in my life, like say my lunch routine. When I first got to Singapore, I had a hard time when it came to my first meal of the day. This had a lot to do with the aromas around the hawker stalls. There were things like fish soup and other items that I could only associate with a dinner meal, but that the locals will have at any hour. Many of the local dishes really don't appeal to me, especially for the first meal of the day. Examples would be…


A Steel Wool Collaboration

Well I'm guessing if you're a regular to akaawol.com that you saw the great video from Dustin Thompson that I posted just a little while back. Well after watching it a couple of times a few thoughts came to mind and this got Dustin and me talking...


Friend Who Teaches

home
I’d like to introduce Dustin Thompson, someone whom I admire and consider a friend. He is a photographer as passionate about his craft as I am and has just put together a great video on a topic I find incredible. It's about long exposure photography using steel wool sparks and fire poi as the subject...


TV Gone Wrong

home
Back when I lived in the States, I was a big fan of the Public Broadcasting Service as well as the Discovery Channel. For people outside of the US, PBS is a non-profit public television network that operates on a largely viewer-supported basis and brings in more cultural and educational programs. Anyone who watched Sesame Street back in the day, for example, might remember the PBS logo. Well, it looks like one of the stations has produced some videos that well...


We Like Warm Bodies

home
For once I have to say I envy those still living in America. Oh it’s not that I feel they have really anything over us in Singapore. It’s just when I went to look for when the release date for “Warm Bodies” was, I discovered...


Five-Minute Management Course

home
There are all kinds of management courses to be had nowadays, from a simple two-hour workshop to a full-blown business degree program. But of course, not everyone will be interested to actually attend such courses. And sometimes, the lessons to be learnt can be summed up in just a few minutes of amusing reading. Like this set of six ‘lessons’ that have been circulating around the internet...


God Proposes, Man Disposes

Someone passed me this joke and ok, Singaporeans might not get it since most live in high-rise apartments, but where I was from in the United States, this rings of so much truth...
