2017!!! Happy New Year everyone!

How was the New Year celebration for you all? For me, it’s more of a stay at home “family time”. It’s been a long time since Chris and I do up a show. So since we are free, we decided to a show together.

  2. Find out what is Chris’s goal for Sphere in this brand new year
  3. Chris and I predict tech trends
    1. Live streaming
    2. AR/VR
    3. Chatbots
    4. Insurance Tech
  4. Arc Board EV: Chris got a Arc Board EV, produced by a group of Singapore. It is a kickstarter project. And you got to give them a hand because they are not doing this full time. The maple wood material is amazing.

Thanks for supporting us all these while, we love you guys.

BSN07 – Let’s talk Rubbish

Warning. This is an episode of me talking to myself.

IMG_2016-09-07 15:22:32No interviews, no specific topic. I talk about why BSN episode 7 came so late and how I got my motivation back.

When I was doing this episode, I was recording this on Bigo Live too.

 

LB67 – Are we at PEAK SaaS?

This week Chris and I talk about SaaS. We take reference from this article here about the opportunity of Sass and the possibility in the change in business model for Saas.

We shared our views on the following:

  • The return to desktop apps
  • Self-hosted cloud applications
  • Pay once web apps
  • All-in-one
  • Micro SaaS built on bigger platforms

Pick of the week

Bryan: A wooden desktop stationery rack from Taobao. Cheap and good. Kinda of copy Muji in design, but it works great.

Chris: If you support local, this is a project that you should be supporting too. These guys from Arc Boards EV are building the next cool thing that you can use for city commute. The best part is that they are using their prototype to catch pokemons now.

BSN06 – Let’s talk Aerial Yoga with Nicole Lee

This week, let’s talk about Aerial Yoga with Nicole. She is a very charming lady and this is how she describe herself, “I am living life with a relentless thirst. I am an aerialist, a yogi, a pole dancer and everything in between. I love being in the air. I relish extreme sports and live vivaciously through travel.

So who else better than an aerialist to share about Aerial Yoga? 😛

This week, let’s talk about Freeletics with Cassandra. She left her corporate job and jump into the world of fitness. She is a trainer and also an expert on nutrition. Beside sharing about Freeletics, we also talked about the benefits of being a vegetarian and how can you get low carb, high veges in local hawker centers.

What is Freeletics?

It is a type of bodyweight fitness. Freeletics contains three types of training: Workouts, Exercises and Runs.The combination of these three types of training is ideal for maximum progress. The high intensity allows for impressive results despite significantly reduced workout times.

So you have no excuse to say that you have not time to exercise because some of these training takes between 15mins to 30mins only. Most importantly, you can do it anywhere without equipments.

*You get the best result when training in a group and it helps to motivate one and another. *

BSN03 – Let’s talk Bodybuilding

Once upon a time, if men wanted to compete in a physique competition there was only one category: bodybuilding. The same was true for women.

These days, women can compete in bikini, figure, fitness, physique, and bodybuilding. The posing and related requirements are different for each, but the main difference is obvious: muscular size.

This week on Becoming Stronger, we talk about Bodybuilding. It is an honour to have Carol with us. She shares with us her journey on bodybuilding, what got her started and her thoughts on female bodybuilding.
