Technology is a one-way street. This notion wasn’t obvious at me when I first heard it from Tom Bilyeu. But the thought of it leaped at me when I was in the shower. Perhaps I was experiencing a deep relaxation wave in my Alpha state. It is safe to assume that we’ll never go back to the time when we use horses as our mode of transport. We’ll never use floppy disks again, and we certainly wouldn’t be using pagers and rotary telephones. The days of a phonebook is, ironically, numbered.

Now, we have Google, iPhones and seemingly limitless amount…


More than a decade ago, I bought my first digital gift card. It was for a game called MapleStory. There was a specific section of the card whereby you’ll have to scratch it to unravel the code. It was a string of alphabets and numbers, somewhere along the lines of X5AL98AmD0M1fG. I’m sure the team who developed this technology ensured a secure platform for millions of dollars to be transferred in and out of the game. This method of gaining access to virtual currency works. But, it is cumbersome. No one wants to buy a physical card and manually key…


There is one thing we can learn from tech support, and that is starting with the easy tests. If you’ve encountered some kind of tech issues, whether it is your WiFi being down or your computer suddenly crashing into blue screen, you’ve probably been asked by the tech support guys to turn the system on and off. Sometimes they may even ask you to turn it on and off multiple times. It sounds dumb, but it really isn’t. The reason why they would do this is not due to the fact that this step often fixes the problem, but on…


This is a gentle reminder for myself, and for those who feels a little loaded at times. Now more than ever, we’re comparing ourselves to others. In the last decade, the culture has changed dramatically. We’ve been buffeted by shifts that has conditioned us to behave differently. The combination of media and technology has resulted in each week being different from the one that we have experienced before. We need to keep in mind that with every beach vacation photo that we see comes an underlying flight delay photo too. But, we don’t see it. We tend to highlight wins…


In the past, I’ve written about how we can get better at Carousell and Instagram. Today, I’ll be writing about how we can get better at YouTube. I’ve always been a fan of identifying inputs that are potentially the most productive and make them the priority. I believe the best way to illustrate this is a short storytelling by Kobe Bryant on Kyrie Irving. Kyrie Irving is easily the Top 5 Guards in NBA at the moment. He is often praised for his ball handling skills. He could drive towards the left. He could drive towards the right. He can…


I believe Ethereum is one of the most compelling assets in the world right now. However, its narrative is pretty obscure for what it is and what it will become. For starters, it is good to know that Ethereum is many things at once. Similar to how we wear different hats at various moments in our life, we’re simultaneously a child of our parents, a working adult, a friend, a colleague, a friendly nemesis, a beloved partner and at times a stubborn couch potato. We hold many identities and play a multitude of roles of which many of them inevitably…


It is difficult to tell the difference between boldness and recklessness. Same goes for greed and ambition. Likewise with being a contrarian and being wrong. How much would you pay for the potentiality of a virtual asset? Would you even pay a single cent on something (1) virtual and (2) has yet to exist with limited factors to determine if your investment is gonna be worth it?

A reasonable man would say no.

However, people who are into crypto games are buying up virtual assets that has yet to be released into the game. Here is the best part: some…


It all boils down to understanding the nuances of the game. Similar to buying a watermelon, we can get away with picking the heaviest one available and praying that it is ripe and juicy. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. One thing is for sure, we know for a fact that the watermelon isn’t underweight. The more information we know of sweet juicy watermelons, the more accurate we become at picking them.

It isn’t necessarily the case that we get perfect watermelons all the time, but it eliminates many different factors which may affect the undesired outcome.

For starters, we…


Chances are you’ve stumbled upon a couple of Axie Infinity videos and you’re interested to try the game. However, you’re unsure of which three Axies to buy and the cost of an average team being close to two thousand bucks (USD) isn’t helping. Ideally, we want to have a team that is easy to understand and simple to use. More importantly, a successful team is one that yields us 70% win rate for PVP battles in the game. When we’re constantly winning, we’re climbing up the MMR (Matchmaking Rating) which allows us to earn more Sleep Love Potions (SLP) and…


I’ve been playing Axie Infinity for awhile now, and it seems like the game has been gaining quite a bit of traction lately. So, here is my review to give a better understanding of what this new trend is all about.

What is Axie Infinity?
Axie Infinity is a game. It is similar to Clash Royale in the sense that if you love mentally calculating how many elixers your opponent is left with after discarding his cards, you’re likely to enjoy Axie Infinity too. For Axie Infinity, it is highly beneficial to know how many energy/cards your opponent is left with…

There is a fine line between fishing and doing nothing. We would like to think that we’re fishing, but the truth is we don’t have the line.
