As you guys know I was just back in my Singapore home and as usual after a 4 months absence, my snailmail box is over the roof. Here are just some of them:

  1. Since I am approaching 40 in March, I got an offer from NTUC Income for the ElderShield Scheme. Uwah!!! Eldershield is an affordable severe disability insurance scheme which provides basic financial protection tho those who need long-term care, especially in old age. It provides a monthly cash payout of $400 for a maximum of 72 months to help pay the out-of-pocket expenses for the care of those policyholders who become severely disabled. As much as this sounds like a great insurance, I got to opt out of it as I don’t live in Singapore anymore and the payout is only for those living in Singapore.
  2. I found out that resident individuals earning less than $22,000 a year, do not need to file an Income Tax Return for 2009 anymore. Prior to this everyone got to file even to report zero earning. So.. no filing for me and mommy!

And the good news….

As part of the GST offset package, I am getting SGD500 into my bank account. Yihaa!!.. the first payout is on 1st March for SGD250 and the the balance on 1st July! Sweet!!

I am following the steps of my BFF, Marzie in giving out First Commenter Linky Love.

I think most of you who are already giving away linky love to your First Commenter realize by now that this is indeed a wonderful way for us to thank our commenters who make the effort to stop by and comment on our blogs. It is also a great way to increase your traffic and comments as bloggers are more inclined to drop by your blog to see if you have a new star post out in hopes of winning the free link back that you are giving away.

The FC Club will house all members under one roof. This will make it easier for us bloggers to visit and get to know one another better. Furthermore, all members would be aware of which blogs are giving away free linky love to their first commentators, thus encouraging other FC members to visit your blog!

The rules are simple, because we like things simple and sweet.

1. Your blog gives away FREE linky love to your FIRST COMMENTERS.

  • It doesn’t matter how many times in a month you have FC linky love posts at your blog but do take note that the tendency of other bloggers visiting you (to win the linky love you are giving away) increases with the number of FC linky love posts you write.

2. Display the FC button and blogroll in your sidebar.

  • Once we have finalized the FC Club member list, please come back here to get your code for the complete blogroll of Members.

Here is the badge to display at your sidebar.

3. We are looking for 100 blogs only so HURRY!

  • For now, our membership drive is open to the first 100 blogs that qualify. All types of blogs are welcomed to join the FC Club, but we draw the line at blogs that are pornographic in nature.

So what are you waiting for? Keep your readers coming back for more by joining the First Commentator Club. Start showing your love and appreciation for your readers and commenters today!

Please leave your blog url here. Once we confirmed that you have displayed the badge, we’ll include you in the upcoming blogroll.

We had a blast on Saturday over at the MyEvo Clubhouse Launch. It’s been a while since I’ve listened to live bands playing and to be able to again was SUPER AWESOME!! We had fantastic bands playing too. I must say I was really impressed with the “otai” band SATIRA. After disappearing from the scene for 20 years, they were rocking the house with their previous hits. Everyone was singing along and die-hard fans was urging them encore so much that instead of one appearance last night, they stayed on and performed another set, much to the delight of the audience!

We also had Ana Rafali, an upcoming new star with a fantastic voice who I’m gonna feature at Being Woman, Peejoy – a wonderful singer with ah so romantics songs, that I’m featuring at Life’s Pages and Field Players that I’m featuring at Gossip Galore.

However, for today’s MM here over at LJL, I’m gonna feature my favorite band of the night, FLOP POPPY!. OMG! They were super awesome. I love their performance for that night. Sorry about the sound quality though, it’s my phone and definitely not them!


Come join Music Monday and share your songs with us. One simple rule, leave ONLY the actual post link here. You can grab this code at LJL. Please note these links are STRICTLY for Music Monday participants only. All others will be deleted without prejudice.

Here’s the code for Mr Linky this week :
