It is a sad day to discover that Delicious (delicious.com) no longer supports my project 🙁

More. Emotion!

This post hasn't been updated in over 3 years.

I consider myself a Final Fantasy fan. I have played FF5 up till FF9, finishing only 2 of those, with brief tries on FF4, FF10 and FF12. For the purposes of this post, you can consider me inexperienced with the recent Final Fantasy offerings from the last, oh, 10 years. (That’s Final Fantasy X, i.e. FF10, and everything after it!)

So I have been playing Final Fantasy III on the iPad, and I still cannot get over the fact that, for the first time playing a Final Fantasy game, I can actually see expressions and emotions on the character’s faces at such a close range:

What if all the public complaints in Brunei for the last 7 days could be compiled and we actually tried to do something about it? #Brunei

(Who would’ve thought that I’d ever <blockquote> my own words? Ahem.)

This turned out a lot longer than intended, so here’s a teeny Table of Contents for you:

The Mental Part of “Shopping Stamina”

This post hasn't been updated in over 3 years.

For Big Shoppers

I always thought that “shopping stamina” refers to a person’s physical endurance for large malls and several carrier bags. I strongly felt myself to be one who lacked such a quality, one that is usually so advantageous for shopping in foreign cities within limited timeframes.

It was after a day of shopping in Singapore, that I wondered if there is also a mental aspect to “shopping stamina”.
