Set Goals, Slay Goals

Me at the bottom center with my mentor Jia above me for the SG TUG event

I first met Jia during my third year of university under the Tableau Student Ambassador Program through KJ, my supervisor from Tableau. Jia runs the SEA operations for Interworks, one of the renowned tech consultancy firms and the first-ever Tableau Gold Partner. Knowing that I had an interest in consultancy, KJ introduced Jia, and our mentoring relationship began from there.

He became my mentor at the start of 2020, which was a tough period for most of us, including myself. …


My best decision for 2020

End of year Intern farewell party!

From June 2020 to Dec 2020, I had the opportunity to embark on an Internship with Tableau as a solutions engineer. At first, I was concerned when the internship had to be converted into a virtual one, given that I am delaying my graduation. What reaffirmed my choice at the start of the internship was the remote working experience, which will eventually prove valuable when dealing with overseas clients/customers.

Thankfully after these 6 months, I can confidently say it was the best decision I made for the year 2020 as it places me in an…

For aspiring Singaporean drivers

I took tons of private classes when I was 20 and passed my practical test at UBI(ComfortDelgro) just before I enlisted into the army. Long story short, I spent a total amount of $1300+- on tests alone. I passed it on my fourth test. ( It hurts to say it every time ).

Upon taking the test, I couldn’t find much advice online as most of the tips given were too general in my opinion or they are more applicable to overseas licenses. To put that $1300 to good use, here are some tips I’ve learned…

I’ve been fascinated by Hans Rosling’s seminars ever since I took an interest in analytics and statistics in my polytechnic days.
