Our Mission is to bridge the digital divide of fellow Singaporean and PR seniors (50+) and to encourage them that they can do IT too.
Our Vision is to make a difference to those who are prepared to take the challenge to embrace a digital lifestyle and to engage in Life Long Learning.
Objectives of this Blog is to serve the interest of the 50plus who have bought the computer/laptop or iPad/tablet or iPhone/smartphone and do not really know how to use them properly. Information Technology (IT), the digital divide, is ever changing and to keep pace with it, we have to embrace a Digital Lifestyle.

Currently, I do conduct an IT class lesson/discussion on a monthly basis with changing topic of interests. It is on the second Saturday of the Month, 3PM to 5PM at Bukit Merah Library, Level 3. (Take MRT to Tiong Bahru Station, turn right and up escalator. At the Bus Stop (10161), take Bus Numbers 5 or 16 or 851 to end, the Bukit Merah Bus Interchange). From there it is just about 5 minutes walk to the Bukit Merah Library. Ask for direction.
This Blog site is for the young and old who wish to take this site as a forum to share IT (Information Technology) & Photography skills. These include, but not be limited to, iPhones, iPads, smart phones, tablets, general computer skills and how to take good pictures & make movies to share.
IT and Photography are not my professions. I am only interested, take it as a hobby and spending a few hours in the library or on the Internet each day. I am a Silver Infocomm Wellness Ambassador (SIWA) since 2013. In 2018, I am a recipient of Special Recognition Award (SRA) from Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI). Currently I am focusing my time on enhancing my skills on digital video editing and burning the movies into DVDs that not only can play on the computer, but also on any standard DVD players. Concurrently, I am also sharing my little skill on computer programming, the Scratch Programming (provided free by MIT) under the Workshop Event, titled “Fun with Scratch Coding”.
