Social networking on the rise

Posted by jtsmyth8 on September 27, 2010

Facebook, Twitter, blogs, you name it Asians are jumping on the technology faster than any other region. So much so that Internet bigwigs are starting to notice. Just some numbers for you to consider: 3 out of 5 people in Singapore have a Facebook account. There are over 200 million bloggers in China double that of the U.S. 37% of total tweets come from Japan, Indonesia and South Korea.

So what does it all mean? Advertising. More advertising targeted for Asian users. It’s a sheer numbers game. More eyes looking at your site, mean more people to flash commercials to. I am not looking forward to wading through all the ads to do my status updates.

Nightmare Maid

Posted by jtsmyth8 on May 17, 2010

Imagine this nightmare. You hire an Indonesian maid to take care of your 8 month old baby only to have your trust betrayed. The maid threatened to kill the baby if not sent home by the employer. Nurhasanah had requested 3 times to be sent home and eventually reached a desperate point when she held a pair of scissors up to the baby. The victim drove to the airport immediately and purchased a plane ticket for the maid. The police were called and justice served. 2 years in jail. (link)

Time to Smile

Posted by jtsmyth8 on May 10, 2010

Gentlemen, there is a God. Zhang Ziyi is back on the market, resume praying to your fan shrine. It would appear Vivi Nevo is a bit of an online addict and has been dabbling with the forums. My guess chat roulette and 4chan, gets them every time. While most girlfriends deal with their boyfriends online porn addiction it would appear the lovely Zhang Ziyi had to deal with a cheating bastard as well. (why you white men always gotta mess with our women?!)

Rumors have been surfacing that there had been trouble for a little while. The douche has fallen in love with another forum user. Really? How does that even happen? I mean chatting and exchanging opinions over anime and manga and suddenly you’ve fallen in love? Wow, dude, just wow. I mean if you got addicted to World of Warcraft or something I might forgive you but falling for someone who makes random comments in a forum mostly which involve “FIRST”? Way to fail buddy.

Let it be a lesson learned, money can’t buy you happiness. Let’s hope she falls into the arms of a Asian lover. I’m available BTW.

Headlines Apr.29, 2010

Sammi and Andy still hooking up? Yes, yes, they broke up years ago but they are still good friends. Very good friends in fact. Late night phone call, dinner, getting a hotel room, bang bang boom, and there you have a booty call. I’m still a fan of Andy Hui, keeping on tapping that.

Bitch, you better have my money! Ever borrow money from a loan shark? Hopefully not from this guy. Miss a payment? Discover a burning banner outside your home. Miss another payment, suddenly YOU are on fire. Oops, thankfully the cops picked him up before I had to pay. Thanks guys!

US ambassador backtracks after statements. After making comments in hindsight David Adelman attempted to explain his remarks. How about you stick with your messed up country rather than giving advice to others that you know nothing about. Singapore doesn’t need your help.
