New addition to our Mo Mo family

Time flies – it has been 15 years since the first Swarovski’s beloved Mo character series came out. Of course as a fan and collector, my wife would not miss it.

“Showcasing 163 crystal facets, this enchanting figurine is covered with more than 750 tiny crystals, featuring the Aurora Borealis effect for a vivid and sparkling look. The crown and bell with a silver-tone finish complete this unique Mo design. This Swarovski figurine is engraved with the year of issue on the bottom and complements any Mo collection. “

My desktop – day 4

The temperature came down to below 20 degree Celsius this morning with an overcast sky. Nothing too exciting seeing through the window.

It is always good to start a day with something interesting to keep up with the energy level and momentum. I thus decided to look at my favorite market, Japan, to begin with as part of the exercise to review our business portfolio as mentioned in my earlier post.

I selected to look at solar and renewable energy sectors, and studied a bit their market outlook in 2020 in Japan. Wind power looks good – it is “sunshine”. Solar battery appears to be not too good – it is an “overcast”. So is geothermal energy, also an “overcast”.

How can I capitalize on what we have and pivot to the wind power sector? Any thoughts are welcome. Thanks.

Which video conferencing tool is better

Colleagues have been working from home for over a month.  We’ve been relying heavily on video conferencing tool for meetings.

“There’re so many tools available in the market – which one should we use?” – a question in mind all the time.  Started looking at reviews online, my colleagues were busy researching in the beginning of January.  Apparently, there are plenty of reviews too – which one and who to trust?  “Seeing is believing.”  Free trials appeared to be the way forward.  Thanks to Chad Brooks’s review, we have decided to adopt ClickMeeting  as our first tool.

Another tool we are looking at is ZOOM.  It tops the trending chart of Japan today.


My desktop – day 3

People here start to go to office for work today.  Most of them are wearing facial masks.  How many masks do we need for a day?  How long can our stock last?

Anyway, as face-to-face meetings are still avoided as much as possible, I still have a lot of conference calls scheduled.

One of the gadgets I use everyday for my phone calls is my retro handset connecting to the mobile phone.  See the featured phone of this post.  I like it because I can keep talking by holding it between my head and shoulder, while freeing my hands to work on the computer.  So convenient!  My wife says I’m “old-school”, though. Haha!

Do you like it?  Cheers!
