Cute Chrome App: Build Legos in Chrome with Google Build

Good morning everyone, weekend is finally here again and I hope you are having a great weekend.

Here's something that may help you to relax and enjoy your weekend. Google Build has been launched for Singapore and through this site you can build lego structures in Google's browser Chrome. Could be a good way to prepare for Legoland Malaysia launch :)

Speaking of Legoland, it's 76 days til the official opening of Legoland Malaysia. We've just bought annual passes (tickets can be purchased here). Looking forward to the opening!

UEM Land Q1 Profits Up 207% thanks to East Ledang and few other developments

Recent article reported that UEM Land's revenue increased 61.8% to RM303.72mil from RM187.68mil in Q1 2012, mainly due to contribution from the group's development from East Ledang, Nusa Bayu, Nusa Idaman, MK28 and Quintet as well as sale of inventories from Dutamas and Meridin.

Well, I certainly hope that they spend some of this profit in better maintaining the development! A lot of times, UEM can be such a slack, for example quality of building is not as "prestigious" as image projected (i.e. high end development), gardens which have never been finished, refusal to service any building defects for sub-sale units, etc. UEM show us and the world that you are actually able to build and maintain high end development.

Marlborough College pick-ing the very best for students

Famous Old Marlburians (alumni) include the Middleton family, most famous being Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine Middleton. See if you could recognise anyone else here.

In a recent interview with Robert Pick, Founding Master of the MY college, he mentioned that the purpose of establishing an overseas campus was not only to offer access to a leading English independent co-educational boarding school but also to build cultural and social bridges. “We intend to have student and staff exchanges between campuses to provide exposure to different cultures and socio-economic climes for members of our school,” he said.
