The "Back To The Future" Future in 2015

Posted On // Leave a Comment
Today I performed some massive chores around the room which included, ironing, clearing out the wardrobe, vacuuming and mopping. And as I went about with my cleaning, I popped in the DVDs of Robert Zemeckis' "Back to the Future" trilogy. Yupe, all three movies in one seating. Back in the 80s, these movies were easily amongst my favourite. I watched them repeatedly. I loved Michael J. Fox and adored Christopher Lloyd.

The future set in "Back to the Future II" sent Michael J. Fox's character Marty McFly into the future of 2015. That's like NEXT year! I'm kinda like living out the future of my beloved childhood movie.


What I was promised in the movies looks like it will fall short. Well at least, flying cars will not be a common sight... not for a while more. Imagine the road congestion that will be eased or the reduced road tax we will be paying.

*Notice the mail / parcel box in the foreground of the picture. Well... at least they got that right... Postal services will still be around.


Electronic billboards are bigger, brighter and louder but where are those realistic holographic 3D advertisements that jump at you in the streets?


It was only after 22 years in 2011 that Nike finally marketed the famous trainers Back to the Future Nike Mag. 1,500 pairs of Nike Mags were auctioned on eBay to raise money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. The trainers have the coolest signal lights that can light-up for up to 5 hours.




The shoes auctioned at a minimum of USD$3,000 a pair and raised a total of nearly $5.7 million.




A year later in 2012, the iconic cap was made commercially available.

But in all honesty, EVERYONE is waiting for the HOVERBOARD! The movie's 1980s Barbie pink HUVr Board is universally accepted as the most awesome thing we don't yet have. This video is probably the closest thing we have to the wheel-less skateboard that floats above the ground and travels as if by magic... From what sources reveal, it is another hoax.

There is no excuse not to Read.
Penguin Group and the Pearson Foundation launched We Give Books, a new digital initiative that enables anyone with access to the Internet to put books in the hands of children who don’t have them, simply by reading online. The free website gives parents, caregivers, and educators immediate access to a growing digital collection of Penguin Group’s classic children’s literature. For every book read online, the Pearson Foundation will donate a book to a child in partnership with one of the exemplary international, national, and local literacy organizations presented at www.wegivebooks.org.
We Give Books is a very simple concept that encourages people to enjoy some of our best-loved books and, at the same time, to share books with others and help to tackle illiteracy, one of the biggest challenges we face around the world today.
- John Makinson, Chairman and Chief Executive of the Penguin Group

Goodnight Moon, Goodnight iPad...

Posted On // Leave a Comment


Read this to a little one snuggled up in bed. Perhaps the perfect children's bedtime book, "Goodnight Moon" by Margaret Wise Brown, is a short poem of goodnight wishes from a young rabbit preparing for or attempting to postpone his own slumber. He says goodnight to every object in sight.
In a great green room, tucked away in bed, is a little bunny. "Goodnight room, goodnight moon." And to all the familiar things in the softly lit room--to the picture of the three little bears sitting in chairs, to the clocks and his socks, to the mittens and the kittens, to everything one by one--he says goodnight.

Goodnight Moon gets millennial in this plugged-in parody.
In a bright buzzing room, in the glow of the moon-and iPhones and Androids and Blackberries too-it is time to say goodnight...
Modern life is abuzz. There are huge LCD WiFi HD TVs and Facebook requests and thumbs tapping texts and new viral clips of cats doing flips. Wouldn't it be nice to say goodnight to all that? Like the rest of us who cannot resist just a few more scrolls and clicks, you may find yourself ready for bed while still clinging to your electronics long after dark. This book, which is made of paper, is a reminder for the child in all of us to power down at the end of the day. This hilarious parody not only pokes loving fun at the bygone quiet of the original classic, but also at our modern plugged-in lives.

FIT Day 2014 Marina Bay Edition

Posted On // Leave a Comment

The Facilitators In Training (FIT) kiddos did it, pretty much all by themselves! After over a year of facil training they organised for aspiring future facilitators a day of training around Marina Bay. In my opinion, awesome effort and loads of fun. For them, nothing beats the real experience to learn.

There's no love greater...

Posted On // Leave a Comment
On Good Friday today, we remember...
There's no greater love
than the love of Jesus.
There's no love that's wiser,
that's stronger, that lasts longer,
that's more willing or thrilling.
There's no love more beautiful,
more bountiful, more bold,
more basic and unbiased.
There's no love more caring,
more sharing, more
daring to risk all in danger
for sinner and stranger.
There's no love more gracious,
more giving, more living,
more sacred, more selfless,
more soul-satisfying,
more pure and undying.
There's no love more verifiable,
more valuable, more validating,
more victorious, more glorious.
There's no love more precious,
more costly, more kingly.
There's no love that's greater—
that's more wonderful, more wild,
more passionate, more powerful—
than the love of Jesus.
