I design Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) as my part of my job. I also have some PCB projects outside of work with my most famous project among my peers being my PCB name card. A major problem PCB designers like myself face is time and cost. It takes about 2 weeks (1 week if you can Read More
It is not everyday that one is like a tourist in our own country. I went on a trip with my fellow Repair Kopitiam coaches and others for a practically once-in-a-lifetime experience to Pulau Semakau, an island located 8km south of the mainland.

Let me start this post with my 3D-printers’ rendition of the Singapore’s National Anthem. Happy 50th Birthday Singapore! (You may need to turn up the volume to hear.) If you are curious how this is done, check out this and this. So now on to my thoughts for the SG50 Jubilee weekend.
(Long post warning: 2.5k words) This post is 2 weeks late as I was rather busy during this period. Anyways, as this will be the last post I will have about Uni life, thought would like to thank a few key people and describe the 5 story arcs that has greatly defined my time in Uni. Read More
Having just given this Intro to Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) talk 3 times already, I thought I would like to gather all the videos and links so far into this blog post for future reference. These 2 BLE talks are seriously the most complex presentations I have undertaken to date. I covered 4 hardware platforms: Arduino, Raspberry Read More
