"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

With sincere apologies to readers, there has been an unintended hiatus in writing and posting for this weblog.

This is partly due to the fact that I have relocated to Ho Chi Minh City, in September 2010, including building a new home in the big city with my wife, and, busy writing a new weblog, 'Bonjour Vietnam, Here I Come!'.

The other part is attributed to the fact that my good friend, Dilip Mukerjea, has spent most of his personal time during the same period, with busy consulting and hectic teaching assignments in his homeland on the Indian subcontinent.

We certainly missed all the regular "pow-wow" and "teh tarik", often at my old HDB residence in Jurong West, Singapore.

Since then, I have met him only once in Singapore, even though we have continued to communicate with each other through cyperspace.

Both Dilip and I have recently decided that we should keep this weblog alive. That's to say, 'The Boys are Back in Town', metaphorically speaking.

[For readers who are movie buffs like me, that's also the title of the signature tune in the entertaining police thriller movies, '48 Hours' and its sequel, 'Another 48 hours', starring funnyman Eddie Murphy and award-winning actor, Nick Nolte. Among my most favourites!]

Vietnam will thus be my new homeland, while India will continue to be, more or less,  Dilip's new operating base for his consulting/teaching work, even though, from time to time, he will touch down in Singapore for consulting work with his other clients.

Dilip is still very much involved with the Singapore Institute of Management, where he has an ongoing series of seminars and workshops for the corporate world, namely, 'Braindancing', 'Building Business Brainpower', 'Corporate Taleblazers', and 'Visual Tools to Create Your Corporate Future'.

Here's the link for more program information.

As for this weblog,  we will be posting shortly a series of new articles by learning chef and braindancer Dilip Mukerjea, and also share some snapshots of his latest professional endeavours in India, as well as Nepal and Hongkong.

Please stay tuned!
