May The 4th Be With You :)

Call For Submissions: #drawajawa & #drawawookie for #MayThe4th 2016


"5 Ways My Blog Changed My Life" by TOYSREVIL for GOOD STORIES (for Social Media Week Singapore)


"5 Ways My Blog Changed My Life" was the topic of my speech / 5-minutes story-sharing session at the recent GOOD STORIES event (6 Strangers. 6 Stories about Social Media) , organized by GOODSTUPH (for Social Media Week Singapore). A pretty-apt topic, especially now in ode to my blog (and it's belated blog-birthday - which ironically was two days after the talk happened ;p), and as well a chance to share with folks - outside of the art toy culture - what my online life is all about as well. Also included are "Linkables" - which you can click-on to read more about what I had mentioned in brief, in my talk. Thank you all for listening, and for reading :)

Do note the video/s are incomplete as partial segments of it were unrecorded. Mondo-props and thanks to my sister Cindy for taking the time to film my "meanderings" :)

ASIDE#1: As you can see from the assorted videos posted here, I exceeded the 5-minutes duration of my intended time-allocation, done without intent, I insist! I just rambled on, in my "Singlish", no less! I might claim to be a "bad blog-man", but in actuality, I too am an extremely "long-winded yakker" in person. Heh.

ASIDE#2: In a situation worthy of "Epic-Fail", I realized until much later, that I had not mentioned or indicated at all my URL/Website-adress for my blog, in either my slide-presentation, or verbal speech! Muahahahahaha - but I've always been a "bad salesman", haven't i? Heh.
