Mdm Kang's Kitchen Chilli Crab

  Hi everyone

  We have noticed that more students from the tertiary institutions here in Singapore, as well as in some other countries, have come into our website in search of information on Singapore.

  We know that these chaps, in surfing the Internet for whatever they are looking for, are looking out for information needed for their curriculum projects.

  A number of these students have e-mailed me to get assistance. I have tried my level best to respond to some of their e-mails, but as I am running this website on minimal resources, I have had, in the past, sort of eh "forgotten" to reply to some of the e-mails.

  For this I wish to apologise whole-heartedly. At this juncture, I still find it very difficult to spare time to respond to all the e-mails that we receive here. And I still have this bad habit of conveniently forgetting to reply to e-mails. What makes things worse is we can't hire staff. Why? To be frank, we haven't made a profit from this website to date. Our income in 1999 & 2000 was just a little over a hundred dollars. In 2001, up till today, we have only received one order for goods/services, and even then, we made a loss on that one. 

  So you see, running a business is not a lucrative business at all. However, there are some of us out there who seem to harbour this delusion that a business is a gold mine. I would say this to them - Stop Dreaming!

  I, for one, have not been paid a single cent in salary or commission or any other form of reward or incentives, call them by whatever name you choose, up till today.

  Why, you may ask, do I choose to go on giving this free service? You may have been aware that is all about Singapore. Being a Singaporean, and a proud one at that, I think it's my duty to provide the information that I have collected and collated here for your convenience, whether you are a local or a foreign visitor.

  It's a joy to share such knowledge. I am also proud that the information we have put up here is useful to those who surf by our website. We know so. We started with getting just 400 hits a day back in November 1999. Now, we are getting an average of 13,000 hits a day. 

  This may be a pittance compared to the biggies, such as Lycos and Yahoo. Even then, we are quite happy with the response to our hard work. Today, this website is 3054 pages thick. It is not a plaything anymore. Updating the webpages is pure hard work. We are struggling along so if you notice that we have been slow in updating certain sections, it is because we do not have enough hands to do the updating quickly. Bear with us. We appreciate your understanding. To those of you who have written in, I have this to say - I will try to reply as soon as I can. If you need to know something urgently, just keep sending e-mails to me.

NEW WEBSITES  is a new website for computer gamers launched by Lycos Singapore, a Net portal here. Called Khabal, it offers myriad services for players, including the all-important public game servers. It is currently hosting 19 game servers locally with popular games such as Counter-Strike, Quake Arena and Day of Defeat.  Pasi & Partners offers unique and effective leadership training and strategic planning workshops in Asia-Pacific area.  More than 24,000 titles from the National Library Board's (NLB) collection of e-books, e-magazines, CD-Roms and videos are now available online at this website launched on 7 Sep 2001. It will offer the content direct to home and office computers with an Internet connection. Membership in the eLibraryHub is free.  Andy Tan's Personal Homepage.
