04 Why is the train especially crowded on Monday?

Hello everyone!

Welcome to the 4th episode of Nightly. I am your host, Bryan but you can also call me Bosslee. How was your day today? It’s Monday over here in Singapore, so I’m kinda of suffering from Monday Blue. Like I ask myself why did the weekend go past so fast 🤣

So today I like to talk about traffic. Have you wonder why traffic are always higher on a Monday? I mean I always leave home on time but usually on Monday, it is extremely crowded. I’m not sure why. I tried to Google it but there are no answers for it. Maybe it’s because on Monday, everyone feels like it’s a new start of the week so waking up early and being on time is one of the  goal. However as the time progress through the week, you get worn out by work this being less motivated to be on time.

This is what I think, who do you think?

On top of this traffic thing, I also like to share the worst kind of person you hate on Monday, it’s those kind who comes up to you 30mins before you get off work and say “hey any chance of this being completed today?”

Of course not! It’s another half an hour to freedom. Why are you doing this to me? Plus rushing work will only mess things up. I had this very incident happened to me today, once the guy approached me and put forward the request. I replied “yes” I can do it but I can only give you the answer tml.

This is what I think, everyone should respect each others time. I’m not saying I’m not going to do the work, what I’m sharing is that I will do the work but I have time allocated for it.

How about you? How do you handle such a situation?

I love to hear your side of the stories.

03 Where are the pranks?

Hello everyone! This is Bosslee & Welcome to another episode of Nightly
I just realized that when I write on Launchbyte, it actually sends out an email as part of a newsletter. So if you are reading this on a newsletter, please click on “view via browser”

Now, today is 01 April 2018, so on top of all fake news on the web. There are also a lot of April Fool Jokes, especially by those from the tech companies. But one thing is interesting, it seems like there are less April fool pranks out there this year. I found two which are quite good.

  1. From Google.
    Google having “Where’s Wally” on Google Map. Which is a pretty fun game I must say. I tried it on desktop, but it is much more fun on mobile.

  2. Another one that I found that is pretty good is from Coca-cola

– Coca-cola’s released three new flavors
– avocado, sourdough and charcoal
– not only do they taste great, they are great for Instagram shots too

Hello everyone! Welcome to episode two of Nightly

How are you doing tonight? You must be wondering why am I recording a podcast on a Sat night. Well, when you are over 30, very likely that you will not want to go out too late at night. It is very damaging for the body. It’s not like when you are in the twenties, you can go on days for not sleeping or maybe clubbing for two days straight. Once you are over 30, things start to change.

So less complaint and let us do the show!

Today, I like to share with you a story. By now you should know about the Grab and Uber merger in South East Asia. The news actually came out on the 26 Mar where Grab / Uber announced that as part of the acquisition, Uber will take a 27.5 per cent stake in Grab and Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi will join Grab’s board.

Shortly after this was announced, there were also clips about uber employees being ask leaving the office. So the PR was not very well done. There could have many reasons but I’m guessing it could be because the HR on both side was not prepared for it too.

Now our SG CCS aka Competition Commission of Singapore says that that it has “reasonable grounds” to suspect that the merger of Grab and Uber has infringed the Competition Act. It has also proposed interim measures to maintain market competition and invited the companies to present their positions before it decides whether to impose the measures.

This is like simi sai! The rumours have been going on for so long and CCS was not prepare for this? Anyway, how does it affect everyday people like you and me

First, we need to understand all businesses want to be monopoly and being it gives the sole provider more bargaining power. For example, for me, Grab have already won the game in Asia
When I was in VN/PH/MY/Th I have been using only Grab.

Second, how it affect us?
It’s not a good situation, there will be less promo codes for us and the price will go back to market level. However we do have a choice, we might not have the best public transportation but at least we can get to point to point.

Third, what’s next for grab?
I’m pretty sure you will agree with me is payments. For what it seems now, it looks like grab wants to your utility app. You take cab / bike and make payments with it. In the future, maybe having the options to do investments on it just like Alipay and Wepay in China. An app to do everything maybe except for social media.

As in all technology moving forward, either we reject it or accept it. We the people have the power to stop it no matter how big it becomes.

01 Nightly

Hello everyone! Welcome to the very first episode of Nightly!
My name is Bryan but you can also call me bosslee. My friends love to call me that!
All started because I did an IOT startup for 5 years, never really took off but I learn a ton of things from it. Right now I am a product manager in a local eCommerce company

On this  very first episode, It will be good if you can know me better so I’m going to share 3 things about me!

I just celebrated my 36th birthday last Sunday! 36 years into my life and I still have lots of things that I have yet to do. One of my wish is to build a 10M dollar company in the next 5 years!

I am now super into yoga. I do it daily in the morning. I follow the youtube channel Fightmaster Yoga. The 90 days yoga fix, you should try it. It is really good.

I am also a “Sudo” vegetarian, what do I mean by that?

To me, if I have a choice, I would go for all vegetables but if I am having a gathering and there is a need to consume some meat, I would take a little. I am not those hardcore vegan who says that if you eat meat, you are killing the animals. I mean everyone have their beliefs and calling

Last thing I like to share is that I am very into EDM too. I am very excited that SHW is back. If you have not check out the Youtube, you should. Three of my most listened DJs are Dash Berlin, Armin and W&W

Till the next episode,

Bosslee
