Cliff’s guide on how to become a better paintball player

C

  Last week during church camp, some of the younger fellas (in their early 20s) asked me to join them to play paintball.  Growing up, I never played any team sports or considered myself athletic (I still don’t).  The first ‘sport’ I got into was paintball.  Though many do not considered as a sport, for me, it is the first sport I got serious (next to triathlon). Normally, I try to write a...

Joy in Obedience

J

It has been a while since I blog.  In fact, our times in Uganda and now back in Singapore have been quiet on the blog front.  On my desktop there are many word docs saved.  Each doc is a blog post which I started but never finished. I am now 36 and moving quickly into 40s.  I am now in a period of my life where I often reflect my past. It has been more than ten years since I became a Christian. ...

Speaking at Q Commons on Resilience and Faith

S

Last night I had the privilege of speaking at Q Commons (Singapore).  Q Commons is an event bringing like-minded Christians and non-Christians to discuss how to advance the common good in our community. My topic was Finding resilience through my faith in Christ. I haven’t spoke on my own journey for a long time.  It was a refreshing time for the audience and also for me as I recalled how...

See you later, Uganda

S

In a few hours, Wai Jia and I will be hopping on a plane leaving Uganda. I haven’t blog much about our experience in Africa. The past year was a year of laboring for the Lord and experiencing the faithfulness of His goodness. I am leaving with ever more desire to serve Him and seek His Kingdom and His righteousness. I am leaving realizing that the Word of God is a two edged sword and I...

How much data does Skype video use?

H

For those of us who are constraint with limited bandwidth, you will realize that video takes up a lot of bandwidth.  I’ve been doing tests on various video websites (youtube, Vimeo, BBC and CNN).  I also measure Skype video as well since most of us (especially those living aboard) Skype is a great tool to connect with our friends and family. I use NetLimiter to measure how much data Skype...

How much data BBC and CNN videos use?

H

After testing how much data Youtube and Vimeo video use, I tested BBC and CNN videos as well. If your data plan is limited, like me, you will want to know how much data videos are using (since they consume the most data) so you have an idea of how much you can watch a month without paying extra. Like the test for Youtube and Vimeo video, I use NetLimiter to measure data use in BBC and CNN video...

How much data Vimeo use?

H

A while ago I tested how much data Youtube use.  I also tested how much data Vimeo videos use as well. Once again, I use NetLimiter to measure my test.  Again I use a one minute video to test. The Vimeo video I used is One Minute Wonder – Kiah Victoria Wonders on Vimeo. Unlike Youtube, which has various quality settings, Vimeo only has two: Normal and HQ. Here are the results: Vimeo Video...

When Empathy is not enough (a missionary musing)

W

Before coming to Uganda with my wife as missionaries, I served in Singapore for 2 ½ years.   Singapore was the first place where I served as a long term missionary.   Given that Singapore is well developed, you would think it was easy for me to transit, right?   Unfortunately, my experience was far from smooth.   My wife had to spend many nights listening...
