My friend, Chester, shared this link with me. I am fully aware of Facebook's privacy policies and I think that it leaves much more to be desired. This is precisely the reason why I dont share much in Facebook or dont put up incriminating pictures of myself up there.

I wonder how many of the millions of people in Facebook knows about this. Come to think of it, who wouldnt do so. I would assume that the Googles, Amazons, LinkedIns would love to have that kind of leverage and power, wouldnt they ?

    RestInPeaceChoongTsihSing.gif

    It was so sad that I received news that one of our gym-training buddies in the late 90s and early 2000s, Choong Tsih Sing has passed away peacefully this morning (2343 London Time). A bunch of us havent seen him or been in communications with him since he has migrated to London with his wife and sons.

    This is the 2nd friend I have (same age as me) who passed away due to cancer at a very early age. The other was a computer programmer buddy of mine who I learnt my basics of programming with. I had another friend of the same age who died in a boating accident a number of years ago.

    I dont need any reminders to tell me that life is short and fragile but it is definitly hard not to reflect and be sad when tragedies like these happen to friends of the same age group around me. Many times, while we are chasing the technology or/and corporate ladders, these are reminders to tell us what are the important things in life and what are just immaterial. In fact, many many things are just immaterial. I am a huge subscriber of Buddhism' teachings: Dharma and its 4 Noble Truths in its core essence that "Nothing is permanent"

    Rest in Peace, our friend, Sing and you will always have a special place in our hearts.
