  • Where does the money come from?

    31 January 2010, by Mentom
    Yesterday was a packed day : I showed around a friend who came for the first time to Singapore. In the morning we went for a small hike in the MacRitchie reservoir, watching animals and birds, and just enjoying the sounds of the forest and greenery.
    After a while, the discussion came (as often) to the point, how Singapore can function so well. In particular, having low income taxes, my friend asked, where does the money come from? I thought to myself "good question"; actually I realized I (...)  continue continue
  • Les bonnes resolutions 2010

    9 janvier 2010, par Mentom
    Une de mes principales resolutions pour la nouvelle annee est d’eviter la "procrastination" : de ne plus remettre des choses de la categorie "important mais pas urgent" toujours pour demain, jusqu’a ce que elles deviennent vraiment urgentes.
    Dans le passe, avec cette strategie, j’ai bien reussi a ne pas bien preparer mes courses a pied ("je peux aussi courir demain, le park est tellement loin aujourd’hui") ; de payer tres cher des billets de voyage ("mince il y a deux mois ce n’etait pas (...)  suite suite
  • Sunshine State Florida

    25 December 2009, by Mentom
    This is the end of 2009, time to lay down the pencil (err... the laptop) and to do two things : first, to look back for the "what was good, what was bad" and second, plan 2010 - how to tackle the next year and what I want to achieve.
    Usually Christmas beeing a quiet time with respect to work, Asia one more time surprised me : I have to give a client training in another between Christmas and New Year: my flight from KL to home is going on the 31st of December. With many other last minute (...)  continue continue

    13 décembre 2009, par Mentom — 1 Message
    L’annee du ’champion’ s’est termine sur ce dernier semi-marathon, le Standard Chartered du Singapour. Je l’avais termine en 1h57 et une 547eme place sur 9000 coureurs l’annee derniere. Cette fois-ci, je me suis fait un programme, deja des mois en avance, pour suivre un entrainement plus soutenu et regulier : sortie longue le dimanche, et stade pendant la semaine.
    Le programme etait la, les bonnes resolutions aussi, ensuite est venu le travail et a rendu le plan quasimment impossible. Des (...)  suite suite
  • Two weeks away from the Standard Chartered Half 2009

    30 novembre 2009, par Mentom
    The last big race of the year is moving closer, and my new Garmin running watch reveals that the race will be "big" for some else. The preparation status is not the one of a champion :( Some 300 km since the purchase of the watch in July, that is an average of eventually 50 km per month. Sounds impressive, but that is coming down to only 12.5 km per week. Or one loop in the Bukit Timah reserve. Maybe good enough to finish the race another time below the pathetic 2 hours, but clearly not (...) suite suite
