Accreditation for Singapore Dating Agencies

To ensure quality and professionalism, bona fide dating agencies in Singapore can now apply for the SDU (Singapore Development Unit) Trust Mark. Was at the press conference yesterday when MCYS (Ministry of Community Development, Youth & Sports) announced the accreditation framework together with SDU.

Starting from January next year, singles can look out for dating agencies with the SDU Trust Mark.

After being in the industry for 3.5 years, we welcome the accreditation with open arms as it will definitely help weed out fly by night operators which create a bad name for the industry as a whole. We are one of the 4 dating agencies that is in the pilot batch of accreditation. 🙂

Who is the 1st Blogger you Met?

I have been tagged again! This time by Jo. Haha, it seems that once you get started, it will never stop. 🙂

Who is the first blogger you met? Hmm, I think the first blogger I met has to be Cindy. I read Cindy’s blog when I was at university. Then, I stopped reading after I left university. When I got back into blogging about 2 years back, I signed up with Rice Bowl Journals, and came across her blog again. We exchanged some comments/emails, and decided to meet up since we both work around Raffles Place. That was quite cool really. :) 

Who is the blogger ‘You Most Want to Meet’? Does Oprah, Bill Gates or Donald Trump have a blog? 🙂 These are some of the people I would love to meet. Would like to learn from their experiences in business and life.

Who is the ‘I can meet, want to meet, but somehow never got to meet’ blogger? I am finding this meme increasingly difficult to answer. Not because it is mind-blogging or anything, but it is just something that you never thought of… Hmm, I think the answer to this question probably will be my friends who are also bloggers. Even though we often live in the same city, but sometimes, it is difficult to coordinate schedules to meet up. So we end up finding about each others’ lives through our blogs! 🙂

Who are the group of bloggers that you most want to meet? Hmm, I don’t think there are any particular group of bloggers that I would like to meet… but would like to meet up with more bloggers from the international arena that blogs on the same genre as me. 🙂 So if you are one, do drop me a line! 🙂

Do you have any bloggers/blog readers that you would like to meet right now? Yes, all of you fellow bloggers and readers who have been dropping me comments. And if I have to name one person in particular, it would have to be Rudy… thank you for being such an ardent supporter of my blog for the past 2 years… you are amazing! Thank you so much! 🙂

And now, tagging time… Doris, Cindy & Rudy please! 🙂 Thanks!

I am a Columnist! Woohoo!

Wow, am so happy today! 🙂 I am now a magazine columnist! This is a first for me! Saw the article in print today. Wow, I almost cannot believe my eyes. The Features Editor CF was so sweet… she brought over a copy of the magazine for me. 🙂

It’s fresh from the oven! If you would like to read my first Relationship Q&A column, go get a copy of March’s Cittabella (Malaysia) today! 🙂

Ok (still smiling), time for bed. Will write again tomorrow… about ‘letting go’.
