What is Nanotechnology

I met a friend about 2 weeks back whom I've not caught up for about half a year. He has gone into a new nanotechnology business which was absolutely Greek to me :-) (However, it's good to learn something new once again.).

Essentially, with nanotechnology, comes products like steriliser which means NO MORE SMELLING SHOES, not just legs :-)

So, hey, isn't that good news? The next time you walk into a spa and they hand you some sandals to change into, just pray that it is using these products...Good Luck!

You can read about nanotechnology from his website at, of which here is an excerpt:

=== EXCERPT ===
What is Nanotechnology:

"Nanotechnology is a rapidly growing science of producing and utilizing nano-sized particles that measure in nanometers (1 nm = 1 billionth of a metre).

The term nano particle is generally used to indicate particles with dimensions less than 100 nanometers (one nanometer is one billionth of a meter). For comparison, a human hair is about 100,000 nm in diameter, while a smoke particle is about 1,000 nm in diameter.

The smallest nano particles, only a few nanometers in diameter, contain only a few thousand atoms. These particles, called quantum dots, can possess properties that are entirely different from their parent materials.It is the material improved economical efficiency of silver with its nano particles. Nano Silver is verified scientifically that it sterilizes about 650 kinds of bacteria and virus. Silver is also harmless to the human body.

It is broadly studied as a material for medical treatment of SARS, bird flu, swine cholera and super influenza.
Nano Silver has various functions of deodorization, anti-bacterial ability and reducing electromagnetic waves with high efficiency due to its ability to combine with the cell walls of pathogenic bacteria; it directly gets inside the bacteria and quickly combines with the sulphydryl (-SH) of oxygenic metabolic enzymes to deactivate enzymes, block inhalation and metabolism and suffocate bactera."

Sarawak Kolo Mee (or Noodle) Opens Nee Soon Branch

I discovered that Sarawak Kolo Mee (or Noodle) opened a new branch recently at Nee Soon while I went for breakfast yesterday at the famous Ampang Yong Tau Foo stall.

This branch is just 2 stalls away... I didn't get to taste from there though as you can see, I was early and their doors were not open yet.

Personally, I'm a BIG noodle fan :-) And I've tasted their noodles at their head office and branch at Chinatown which really tasted G-00-d, especially their Specialty Noodle. Try it folks - I'm not getting any commission, Haha...

Life-long Learning...

I just watched Channel News Asia as I took a lunch break...

Wow! You can't believe it! A man just got his MBA in his 60's PHD in his 70's !!

His name is Wee Lee King. (Perhaps you like to search him out. ) Whenever he applied to the learning institutions, they either rejected him outright or queried him why he wants to study!

How ridiculous? And we always talk about Life-long Learning... So do we walk the talk?

Here's an extract from Singapore Workforce Development Agency:

"Wee Lee King [魏利庆] (74 years old, Insurance Consultant & Part-timeLecturer)

Lee King is our oldest Lifelong Learner Award winner. He is a fighter who nevergives up, having battled leukemia but never wavered in his quest to stayemployable.

Born in Guangdong, China, Wee Lee King and his family moved to Kluang,Johor, during World War II. At the end of the war, he came to Singapore to studyat the Chinese High School. "

For more details, click here.

Anyway, he persevered and got himself into MBA and then later PHD. It's fascinating that even a hall in China is named after him for his indomitable human spirit of learning.

Let's learn from him...

Land Banking

I attended a Land Banking Talk last Saturday morning.

It was an eye opener. I never really understood Land Banking till now....

Well, if the company is strong, I believe that the investment is really great! They're talking about nearly 15% per annum ROI and the minimum investment is merely $10,000.

It's really cool if we have some spare cash to stash away. The money literally doubles in 5 to 6 years with this rate of return :-)

This Is My Personal Blog

This is my personal blog where I put in my thoughts, experiences and lessons randomly...

I have another blog at which focuses on Internet Marketing. That's the place where I'll share info about tips, tricks, seminars, etc.
