You could say I am a pioneer in all things Netflix.
I can't remember how I discovered it, but I started watching it back in 2012. It was an amazing discovery that led me to cut the cord on my StarHub cable TV subscription that year.

Pokemon GO has been available in Singapore for a mere 5 days (4 full days, if you want to be exact), but it has already become an integral part of conversations on media and among Singaporeans.
Scrolling through my feeds on various social media these days is just an extension of the Pokemon GO craze, and even the most 'un-gamer' friends and acquaintances I have seem to be showing off their catches of the day.

The use of social media is commonly associated with younger folk.
Nine in 10 millennials here use Facebook, the most popular social media platform here. On average, they spend 2.3 hours a day on social media, according to global insight consultancy TNS.
But some millennials here - aged 16 to 34 - do not have Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts or have not logged on in months.
This minority - The Sunday Times found six of them - may watch the occasional YouTube video or have a LinkedIn or Google Plus account, but do not post updates.

SAN FRANCISCO - Pokemon Go mania has players armed with smartphones hunting streets, parks, rivers, landmarks and other sites to capture monsters and gather supplies.
The free app, based on a Nintendo title that debuted 20 years ago, has been adapted to the mobile internet age by Niantic Labs, a company spun out of Google last year.
Pokemon Go uses smartphone satellite location, graphics and camera capabilities to overlay cartoon monsters on real world settings, challenging players to capture and train the creatures for battles.

For some, leaving your earphones at home when you head out is enough to ruin your day.
If you are a person on the go, you will understand how invaluable these can be.
Nothing helps you through long train rides and walks under Singapore's scorching sun better than a mood-boosting playlist on a trusty set of earphones.
A reliable set will meet these criteria: superb noise isolation to block out the sound of bus engines, excellent bass and clarity in a crowd, and convenient for carrying around.
So what can you get for less than $100?
