My old blog at has been left dormant ever since I moved to

Last year, Microsoft announced its decision to stop offering Live Spaces and will be closing all existing spaces in March 2011. I therefore migrated my old blog here before it disappears from the Internet. It shall serve as an archive but please feel free to comment on the posts.



Yeoman’s Weblog has moved. Please visit me at:

Thank you!

Fire at People’s Park Complex

A fire broke out on the fifth floor of People’s Park Complex yesterday afternoon causing hundreds in the building (shoppers and retailers) to be evacuated. 

This shopping complex in Chinatown is a popular watch hunting place for Seiko/Citizen fans in Singapore. Two popular watch shops located in this building are Sky Watches on the third floor and Twinkle Electronics on the second floor. 

Looks like watch hunting activities will be disrupted for the time being.
