Her Lunar Cove house would not have been possible otherwise.

chang-e

Chang’e, The Immortal One, has sent an email CC-ed to all Singaporeans to thank them for eating a lot of mooncakes this Mooncake Festival.

The email arrived in the inbox of all Singaporeans at about 11 p.m. last night.

In it, Chang’e addressed her shareholders on Earth, reminding them about the good deeds they are doing on her behalf: “Every time you devour a snow skin or traditional mooncake, just remember you are doing a good deed as you are financing my Lunar Cove home here on the moon.”

She also wrote: “This is what you are meant to do. Give money and you shall receive — you’d get mooncakes in return.”

She continued: “I would love to crossover to Earth to say ‘Hi’ to you all again. But this round tripping going back and forth space travel might cost me $700,000 in air fares, which is too expensive.”

 

 

 

 

 











Samsung heeds Minister of State Tan Chuan-Jin’s advice

Samsung heeds Minister of State Tan Chuan-Jin’s advice

Tags: , , ,


Korean gadget company embraces change indeed.

Senior Minister of State for National Development Tan Chuan-Jin said at an informal dialogue organised on Aug. 28 at SMU’s campus:

Embrace change ‘when necessary’

The dialogue was organised by the university and the Government’s feedback unit, Reach, to gather views from young Singaporeans on Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s National Day Rally speech.

Not sure if Singaporeans were going Tan’s way, but it turns out that Korean electronics giant Samsung took heed of Tan’s advice by sending 30 trucks filled with 5-cent coins to Appleā€™s headquarters in California as payment for the fine ruled by the US jury in the recently concluded patent battle between the two tech giants.

Why you feel like Teo Chee Hean when reading the news these days:

“It’s all bullshit!”
