Today, I am going to introduce 2 websites that I use beyond Waffle. It sounds like I am going to forsake Waffle. Yes, I do have thoughts of moving Waffle to a private host but have no plans yet. Let’s get back to the today’s topic.


The first website that I will introduce is Waffle Universe, powered by Netvibes. I would call Netvibes a portal. A portal that consolidates all the information I want real-time. It tells me how many unread emails I have in my GMail and Hotmail accounts. It tells me what’s the weather in Singapore. It tells me if I have new Facebook friend requests. It tells me who had updated their blogs. I can make To-Do lists on it. I can leave notes to myself on it. I can read news on it.

I can do all the above without visiting their respective websites and all those are possible through Widgets and Feeds.

Recently, Netvibes gave Netvibes users a new way to share the information they have. Through Universes. At Waffle Universe, you will be able read the blogs that I read at “Feeds” tab and you will be able to surf the websites I frequent at “Online Haunts” tab. Now you know what I do during my long hours online.

Netvibes sounds interesting, isn’t it?

Maybe you should try it out!

All you need is a FREE account then you can start customising your own Netvibes portal and creating your own Netvibes Universe to share with your family and friends! If you really do like Netvibes and intend to stay, do add me as your contact as well so I can visit your Universe and know what you’re reading too!


The second website I will introduce is Mr. D, powered by Tumblr. Tumblr is a tumblelog provider just like WordPress is a blog provider.


Pronounced as tum-ble-log.

To make a simple analogy: If blogs are journals, tumblelogs are scrapbooks.

You can also look at tumblelogs as slightly more structured blogs that make it easier, faster and more fun to post and share stuff you find or create.

For me, Tumblr is like Twitter and Blog’s love child. You share what you see, do, hear with the World Wide Web. Tumblr is Twitter with multimedia. It’s easy, powerful, mobile, free and YOU! You took a picture on your mobile, you can simply email it to your Tumblr account and now the WWW knows where you are and what you are doing. You found an interesting video on YouTube, you can share it on your Tumblr by simply copying the video’s URL (not embed code) and posting it.

Personally, I like to keep my blog tidy. I like the idea of having an entry each day. I don’t want to flood my blog with random links, videos, pictures etc. I don’t want to think of a wall of text to complement what I want to share. Therefore Tumblr is somewhere where I can flood with all the random stuff I want to share but not on my blog. Sounds bad to flood but Tumblr is simply built for that.

Blogs are great, but they can be a lot of work. And they’re really built to handle longer-form text posts. Tumblelogs, on the other hand, let you easily and quickly post and share anything you find or create.

Sounds like Waffle’s missing out all the random stuff right?


Take a look at the sidebar and you will notice a new RSS feed on Waffle.

Now nobody’s missing out on all the random stuff! 😀

My blog is worth $16,936.20.

How much is your blog worth?

Anyone wants to buy over this blog? It will cost you only USD $16,936.20, which is about SGD $25,545.90. That should give me enough to get 100 over Nintendo DS Lites or 1 Nintendo DS Lite and 500 games or 1 Nintendo DS Lite, 50 games and several shopping sprees… Any buyers?

I guess not… How about donations? Advertisement spaces? Sponsorships? Any takers?

Today, Waffle hits a total of 20,000 hits and 600 comments. Ever since its creation in end-October 2005, Waffle have received increasing higher daily hits from time to time. Waffle now has an average of 2,000 monthly hits and 67 daily hits. It’s not a lot but a comfortable value for me because my ideas are being read but not to an over-extensive audience.

Improvements will be underway. I am still not quite comfortable with the Categorys and the About page have been left dangling for quite some time…


Dear readers,

This blog is undergoing some reshuffling. Wishlist will be combined to About and rewritten within these two weeks.

There is a new page, Links. The Link list is simply too long to be put on the main page therefore it deserves a page of its own. Due the the length of links, I have deleted many links through the last two months. I would like to request for everyone, whose links are not in the list, to comment here. I mean EVERYONE, as long as I know you!

Thank you and sorry for any inconvenience caused. 


After getting featured on Tomorrow.sg… This was what happened…

That’s the power of Tomorrow.sg. The power to rocket jump your blog hits… And show how lousy your hits were previously…

Thanks to Brennan who recommended my post about Apollo 24 of CJC. Thanks to the Tomorrow.sg editor who passed the recommendation. Finally, thanks to the group of CJC-ians who did such a wonderful job at video-ing the whole process of Singapore’s first rocket science.
