What're you doin' up there daddy?

Sixteen-year-old Singaporean student Ang Chuang Yang broke the Guinness World Record for the shortest time needed to type a 160-character SMS message on Sunday after whizzing through the task in less than 42 seconds.

The SMS message he typed was, "The razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human."

I tried it and it took me two minutes and ten seconds! I guess I wont be joining any SMS speed-typing competitions any time soon...


  1. I tried typing the SMS again, this time I'm down to 89 seconds! Yaayyy

  2. My friend challenged me to this. I got 58 seconds! Yippee. Still 16 seconds longer than the record holder. Maybe the dictionary mode can help me wit this. Haha!

  3. Wow 58 seconds! Thats fast! Cana buleh kamu taip laju atu ah??Apparently dictionary mode not allowed in the competition heheh

  4. Hey bro, just asking, who's living is it ? is it yours? I like it coz it's so high...

  5. Its not my house bro. Its the same house as this.

  6. I tried. 1 min 30 secs. Kalah~

The House That Jack Built...

I really enjoyed reading Jack's post on Brunei businesses going bust. Absolutely agree that its not all gloom and doom and its just a matter of time before the economy starts pumping again with all those projects slated for the 9th RKN.

My only concern is this, what do we do before then? Aside from jostling for position with arms (and mouths) wide-open, ready for the giant JPKE to award those "mega-projects"?

Anyway, thats boring stuff. I was more excited by the suggestion that Brunei become a retirement village for the rich (and famous?). I like that idea, and I think it can work! Not only as retirement village but also as a residential base for executives from multi-national companies, it would be ideal. With all ASEAN capitals within a short flying distance, these executives could telecommute daily and fly to and from meetings as and when.

In return, they would get a safe, tax-free, and clean environment to bring up their families.
