    When Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong suggested in a radio interview that, unlike a pregnancy, there is no way to predict when the ruling People's Action Party will call the next General Election , he was essentially giving Singaporeans a mischievous wink. With the power to call the GE when it's at its strongest and the opposition is at its weakest, the PAP can maximise its chances of remaining in power.

    This image sums up Mad Max: Fury Road for me. A car chase across the desert, monster cars and trucks, and the crazy-looking guy playing rock guitar with flames coming out of it. From the moment the movie starts, you grab on to your seat and wish your cinema seat had seat belts because the chase hardly stops. It is a spectacle. The set design. The cinematography. The characters. All blew my mind. It is everything I expected a post-apocalyptic action movie to be. You don't need to have watched the first three Mad Max movies that starred Mel Gibson to appreciate this installment. But it will be…

I think it is such a Singaporean thing, gathering over good drink and good food with your best friends, and as usual, arguing over life’s most important questions: Which stall has the best sambal chilli?

Yet in spite of seeing date and time every day and everywhere, we have yet to adopt a universal format for it. For example, if I write 10/05/2015, you can never be sure if that "10" is the month or the date unless I tell you where I am from. Sometimes the format changes, other times the language. It is of importance that as web developers we pay attention to the date and time that we deal with in our…

It is used almost everywhere, and so much that some users may already have the cache stored in their browser, which makes the libraries load even faster. Unfortunately, that is not the case in China. The China government closed access to many of Google’s services including Google API in 2014.
