(Open) Season Greetings 2013 (Mondarlezo)

Dear Friends and Business Acquaintances


Wishing you a Merry Christmas 2012 and a Happy New Year 2013

This is the time of the year when we look back to learn and reflect, and at the same time looking forward to achieve ahead. Most importantly, it is also the time to get in touch and be connected as we are always busy with our life and work. 

It is coming to a year since I announced our decision to stop our old services ( And it is only coming to 5 months since we set our new direction (

Nonetheless, the ending of one period is the beginning of another. I hereby, wishing you, your family and your love ones the 3 H'es. Healthy, Happy and Hopeful.

Ever with the best in your endeavor. 


We have taken quite a number of panoramic photographs over the last 10 years. Recently, I have created a few pano videos of Singapore and will be creating more along the way. See if you "Remember this place?" ... feeling nostalgia...

Please Like, Comment, Subscribe or Share the videos with someone if you like the videos. Remember to share with your children and grand children too. 

Hope to have your strong support because much effort and time will be needed to continue with this "Remember this place" online video gallery work. With our ever changing landscape in Singapore, I hope we can leave something behind to share and to keep. 

Thank you for your support in advance.


Due to time constrain, I am still working on setting up iViewhouse (a brainchild @ Mondarlezo). At the mean time, feel free to connect to iViewhouse.

Below are the links. Let's get connected in your preferred way. 




Thank you and all the best for the coming year 2013 ahead. Cheers! ♩ ♪ ♫

Entrepreneur : Orion : Ambiguity

Tonight is the 15th night (or "Zub Gor Mair" in hokkien), which is also the last day of the Chinese New Year celebration. The sky is clear, the moon is full and bright, and the stars are sparkling. While walking back after a simple but good dinner with my wife, we were able to see the Orion constellation clearly. Do you know that you can find the North South East West direction by looking at the Orion? Perhaps you may have already know, but for the benefit of those who do not, I have done an image illustration below.

First, spot the Orion constellation.

Then, look for the Orion's Belt.

There is a bright spot (a nebula - gaseous cloud) below the belt. Opposite it is the North. The left is the East and the right is the West (opposite to the compass).

Eulogy from Dr Goh Keng Swee's grandson

About Dr Goh (wiki)
Video below: Goh Ken-Yi (37), grandson of the late Dr Goh Keng Swee gave a personal glimpse into the life of his doting grandfather.

The part (around 5.27 min) that hits me was:

He (Dr Goh) said:"Ken-Yi, all these doesn't matter. In working life, first and foremost, what you need to be is be a reliable and a responsible person...."

At the end, he shared a quote from one of Dr Goh's favourite book:

Book - The ascent of man author by Dr. Jacob Bronowski

 “Knowledge is not a loose-leaf notebook of facts. Above all, it is a responsibility for the integrity of what we are, primarily of what we are as ethical creatures. ....

...personal commitment of a man to his skill, the intellectual commitment and the emotional commitment working together as one, has made the Ascent of Man.” -- Jacob Bronowski (The Ascent of Man, 1973)

Below are the videos of "A Tribute to Dr Goh Keng Swee" shown on Ch5. Enjoy
