Comics: Job rotation

Japanese companies do not let employees specialise in one skill but instead be a Jack of all trades. So even if the employee graduated from an engineering school, they will place him in sales. During promotion, they may even transfer a sales assistant manager to Human Resource!

Comics: Discussing with employees

Although Japanese love to have meetings to gain a common consensus, they also may decide important things among themselves and simply let the employee know their final decision without discussing with them.

Comics: Getting New Namecards in Japan

Based on my friends' real stories. Quite amazing that the CEO has to approve namecards too! No wonder there is a lot of overworking in Japan...

Sightseeing within Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) in Vietnam

Saigon Central Post Office
The Saigon Central Post Office is one of the most popular tourist attraction in HCMC. It has a distinct architecture and colour that you will not miss when you pass by.

Mekong Delta day tour from Saigon Tours Vietnam

We signed up a day tour from Saigon Tours Vietnam to visit Mekong Delta to see their floating market. Because it was a few hours drive from HCMC, the guide stopped by a cafeteria for us to drink Vietnamese coffee and coconut water. Vietnamese coffee tastes very strong and acidic, I became awake not because of the caffeine but because of the strong taste ( ̄▽ ̄;;)

Vietnamese Food in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Wrap and Roll
62 Hai Bà Trưng, Bến Nghé, Hồ Chí Minh, Vietnam
Doanh brought us to a restaurant called "Wrap and Roll" to taste Vietnamese food. As you can see, there is a lot of greens in Vietnamese food, which is great for guts and health! No wonder I did not fall sick when I was in Vietnam but once I come back to Singapore I caught a flu again...

Hotel review: Pullman Saigon Centre in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

We chose Pullman hotel after reading some good reviews especially about their breakfast buffet. The hotel is located in district 1, which is like the hub of the city and 15min walk to Ben Thanh Market, but crossing Vietnamese traffic can be quite daunting. Key attractions like the cathedral and post office were a bit further but they offer shuttle bus service to these places.

Comics: Why Japanese takes forever to decide

This is based on true story from my Japanese friend, that they need meetings to discuss when to hold the next meeting! Consensus from everyone is important but this delays making decisions...

Yoga Comics: The Countdown Cheat 2

Seems that not a lot of people understand the previous strip so I did this version which may be more obvious. Although I find the previous twisted lunge pose more difficult to hold than this warrior 3 pose.
