The past month, I have been experiencing what I can only describe as
a burnout). When
I think about it, I have been juggling too many things, but they
were not extraordinary tasks, so I wonder why I felt ‘stressed’.

Things have been so hectic that I even missed foss.in this year (I
have attended every year since 2003) but good to know that it went so

The good thing was that the vacation was right around the corner which
kept me going. Even an hour before leaving from home for the flight,
I was struggling to complete chores.

I am now in Singapore, staying with my friends, and exploring the
place since the last 5 days.

Singapore is a really amazing city to live in. Everything is
streamlined. Even the fish in the Underwater World at Sentosa Island
are RFID-tagged!

IIRC, I once saw a board that said there’s a 1000 SGD (singapore
dollars) fine if you are found sitting on the stairs of the
underground metro. I need to get one of those T-shirts that says
‘Singapore is a fine city’. Heh.

P.S. If you’re in Singapore too and want to meet up, give me
a holler.

Update: Looks like Ben Rockwood is going through a strikingly similar phase.
