2020.11.01 16:41 Gluttonous2020 25/M looking for new friends

Hi everyone, I’m a 25yo male from Singapore looking to make new friends! I recently graduated and am still in the midst of looking for a job, and would like to make use of the time to also step out of my comfort zone to meet new friends!
I would prefer to meet people from Singapore (as I prefer meetups personally long-term over online interaction and covid doesn’t allow for that unfortunately)
Some things about myself: 1) I enjoy eating all types of food around my country (SG) - All my monthly expenses almost exclusively goes to that 2) I enjoy playing board games and card games such as poker, chess, bridge , and of course the classic board games like risk & monopoly 3) I’m also a basketball / soccer fan and enjoys playing recreationally every week 4) I love travelling and visiting new places (although there’s not many places left to visit in my city right now due to covid)
Hit me up if you’re keen to chat and eventually meet up meals and drinks or games :)

2020.08.12 19:32 InfiniteMarion Rejoining Locals

So I'm looking to rejoin the competitive tournaments at my locals after a really long time (quit right before reboot), and was wondering if anyone's willing to playtest with and roughly teach me the metagame/point out any gameplay mistakes that I'm potentially making before I misplay a million times at the shop tournament. Just playing for fun is completely fine too. The decks I currently have are Nightrose, Seven Seas and MLB. I'm down for both Remote Fight/Meetup [Singapore, I don't mind travelling to your locals to play if you want :) ]
Thanks!

2020.04.04 20:21 hallucineating [Thank You] The social distancing may be far, but the card delivery was MASSIVE

Turns out cards in lockdown are like buses – don’t get one for ages and then six hundred million turn up at once! There are some dated here from over a month ago, so if you’ve sent me something and are worried it has got lost – it might just show up in June!
Another restricted, self distanced week down! I have been taking my state permitted singular daily outdoor exercise to walk in the mornings down to various London tourist hotspots that would normally be, well, hotspots and marveling at the emptiness of it all. Getting to be all alone outside of Buckingham Palace or the singular fascinated lurker on Piccadilly Circus is a strange experience, but I didn’t want to be taking the cards out on a little tour for a themed photo sesh because the bobbies are eying up everyone suspiciously and I didn’t want to end up in the nick for being shifty. Not when my cats need me most.
So the backdrop are the cushions my Mum made me as a ‘Happy Divorce!’ gift. OH YEAH. As of 27th March I was no longer legally entangled! Which is handy because I was talking to my lawyer about making a will incase Covid got me and, not being completely divorced, all my cool and awesome stuff would go to a man whose whereabout are unknown which would just be inconvenient for everyone. Now all my cool and awesome stuff just goes straight to my parents – including the cats (which I’m sure my pet-hating dad would be really grateful for).
Anyway, less banter, more cards!
u/germymany clearly spent quite a bit of time sewing this origami influenced card which she sent along with an exciting washi sampler and a drawn charm for immunity. I’m sorry to hear that she also is the ‘don’t know when I work again’ category – there’s a lot of us and I think a lot of sympathy between us. I hope she finds something fulfilling and meaningful to spend the time doing – that or something that’s just plain tasty, Netflix bingy and indulgently self caring.
I had responded to u/xarama’s request for cards for her uncle who was recovering from surgery after a really horrible few years and wasn’t expecting a response at all. But Rudiger took the time to write a massive two page letter AND include a photo and brochure and I’m so bloody touched I can’t even tell you. Though it was, obviously, all in German and my German is shady at best, so u/ThatDude_DE helped me out on that front.
A very peaceful goose from u/sharkmaid420 and a bookmark found its way to me. I had asked me who the most inspiring and supportive person in her life had been and she honoured the question with a very moving answer about her late father and what a total legend he was. I am sorry you did not get to spend more time with him, and he sounds like he was an incredibly special person. I’m glad for the years you did have and all that he taught you and all that he gave you and how much he loved you.
This incredible sticker bomb card is incredible because its like someone took all the things that make me happy and put them on one postcard sized piece of paper. u/oryx85 decorated it with cats and elephants and volcanoes and loads of outdoorsy, hiking inspired stickers with dabs of yellow and orange and even a mushroom – one of my favourite foods! I cannot begin to tell you how full of awe and happy this made me. Thank you for looking out for me and making me something so beautiful and personal. It’s really, really, very much appreciated and I’m so grateful.
u/onedarkandstormyknit tells me about watching her husband, an oboeist, in his latest concert and reflects how it might be her last live music for a while. Maybe, but how incredibly special to be able to say that that experience was watching your husband perform! She sent a lovely card of a sketched orchestra. I hope her and her hubby are happily holed up in their lockdown, and that him practicing his oboe won’t start to grate!!
Another warm Northern Irish greeting from u/ThatDude_DE There is indeed a light at the end of this tunnel, and all these cards remind me of so many places yet to fully explore and all the wonderful people I have yet to meet. Strength and resourcefulness to you and your family!
An awesome recipe card from u/mmmyesplease for huckleberry pancakes. Apparantly a hardier cousin of a blueberry or billberry, huckleberries are chonky bastards that are so not bothered that they surivived the St Helens volcanic eruption! I do not know what luck I have finding huckleberries here, even without this whole pandemic situation, but I am nothing if not determined, so watch this space.
Another high drama crime story following on from last weeks tale from u/frogreads about the Sweeney Todd curry murders in supposedly safe Singapore. This one is also from Singapore! u/LeeElla tells me about a brutal, bloody and horrifying gang attack outside of her building and I’m starting to doubt the whole ‘not much crime happens in Singapore thing’. Unless not much happens, but when it does, it’s absolutely the grisliest! This card is amazing by the way. It caught people’s eye on Instagram quite a bit!
Two cards from u/m0nk3yklng! One of the Monestary of St Jerome in Lisbon where she’d written the message entirely in what looks like Spanish but might well be Portuguese and my main Spanish friend is currently in hospital with covid so it’s tricky to ask for a translation! This is where British schooling fails – we are crap at teaching languages. Sure, we ‘learnt’ German, Spanish and French, but really shitly and lazily and then look like total ignorant arseholes in adulthood. Her second card of the oldest bakery in Lisbon was in English and she tells me how she is a woman that brings typhoons! It seems often her travels have been plagued by onslaughts of atrocious weather and she hopes for infamy for the scale of it all occurring upon her appearance.
u/dirtytightsdelano had a birthday recently, so everyone go and patronise her for being so young and then envy her still perfect skin. She sent me three cards, a handdrawn frog stamps and an actual stamp of a mole. Along with glow in the dark stars like we all had stuck to the ceilings of our childhood bedrooms (that’s all of us right?? That’s not just a ‘I’m 30ish’ thing right?) You have to feel for the lass because, like most students, she’s still getting lessons online. Except she’s a performing arts student which means everything is ridiculous, chaotic and just plain stupid. She had to do a tap dancing lesson with her computer on the floor with the camera pointed at her feet as she tapped away on a wooden board. I mean, it cracks you up something proper, but that aint a lesson.
She ALSO sent a whole stack of four more cards and two blank ones left over from a trip to Germany and gave me a whole bunch of questions to ask because she knows I’ve been having a hard time coming up with stuff to put in my cards because my brain has turned to lockdown mush. It’s like pregnancy brain but less ultimately rewarding. So whilst I sent her a card this morning, she’ll be getting a far wordier one this week!
BUT THAT IS NOT THE BEST BIT. The BEST was this ‘Happy Divorce Card!’ which was perfect and the RIP washi just made it. I think she’s found her niche.
The most gorgeous envelope from u/halfwayoutoftown arrived containing the most gorgeous travel inspired card. She speaks with bewilderment at the confusion that being from Singapore and having English as a first language seems to bring, and doubts over the sincerity of any of her answers to foreigners about her country! Honestly love, I’d make a game of it. Just make up the most bonkers stuff because clearly that’s what they want to hear!
The Captain has overindulged me. u/CapnCobbler sent me three cards! The first, adorned with a friendship bracelet, was celebrating my 100 flair, which shows how much Covid has halted operations because that was 100 cards ago! So I’m counting it as being for my 200 flair instead! An intricate, textured and beautiful card with a charm of positivity and an upbeat message for both me and CeCe the cat sent hopeful vibes this way. Lastly, but by no means least, a recipe for blueberry buckle! u/TheFiestyFox also received one and a few of us are doing international baking challenges together to pass the stir craziness of lockdowns and therefore it has made the list. I will be attempting it with a fruit other than bloobs though as those as a rare commondity these days – somehow it’s a pandemic but people still need overpriced punnets of berries!
UPDATE: bloobs were purchased!! Rather than go full sized, I made a half sized recipe placed into a cupcake tin. So I made many small buckles. What is a small buckle called? A bucklette or a buckling? Several were delivered to outside of my sister’s door and several dropped off at the local ambulance station and all went down very well and I have received lots of warm thanks which I now pass on to you! ( fucked it up the first time because I screwed up my conversions. The buckle became a fuckle)
UPDATE: AND ANOTHER RECIPE CARD
u/SilverInkBlotV2 sent a card decorated with a very sweet sentiment that I consider often, especially at the moment towards everyone nearby posting on Nextdoor (gatekeeping much?). I get to hear more about her boy All Might and read excerpts that she carefully chose. It might never be an affection that is returned, but one cannot doubt the girl’s loyalty.
u/Amrache sent me a postcard of quandongs, a ‘desert peach’ I have never heard of, and says they make excellent jam. The internet recommends using it anywhere one might use an apricot. Other indigenous names for the fruit include ‘gutchu’ and ‘wolgol’ which sound like names now destined for future pets. The seed of the quandong is particularly oily and can be burnt like a torch which all of us out there planning to Bear Grylls the Australian wilds had better keep in mind because it might be our last source of light before we inevitably die.
The Pasadena meetup crew (u/stockman1984, u/DrFroggie, u/bananacreampiee, u/MeowPrincessSandwich and u/drewadrawing) sent word from their get-together with a reminder to wash hands! That goes for you too. The card featured a cartoon from ‘Rey and Friends’ which I can only assume was influenced by the Star Wars character. Funny story; my sister and her partner live in a fancier part of town, and her partner is an absolute Rey fanboy. He has posters, autographs, even the Rey dolls. So imagine his absolute shock when Daisy Ridley moved into the flat downstairs. Suddenly mortified in case she ever had reason to visit their flat to ask for milk or sugar or kombucha, he destroyed his whole collection and has berated himself for his, apparently, ‘disrespectful obsession’ ever since. Daisy never did have reason to visit their flat, she stayed for almost a year. Aziz Ansari now rents it for his girlfriend which is significantly less exciting.
I sent pictures of my cats to u/PM-ME-UR-CATPHOTOS and I hope they arrived because she sent me this postcard from Trondheim, where she lives, telling me all about her two murder floofs. I hope they are keeping her company during all this madness. I don’t believe Norway has gone as full throttle on restrictions as other countries, but it’s still a lonely and mad time and pets make it all a little bit easier to deal with.
u/LeeElla rose to the challenge to talk about chinchillas. Chinchillas are so soft and fluffy. If only they weren’t such high maintenance and tasty to cats. They do indeed look like obese mice. I hope her hamster is not alarmed by the significant rise in cuddles that surely it must be enduring during this pandemic (my cats are very confused by my continuine presence)
A card from a mystery sender in Leicester. I hope I manage to identify her because she made a beautiful handmade card for me and had the neatest little envelope. As to whether things are OK in London, well, no. It’s an epicenter and the whole thing is very visible here – I live right around the corner from a major hospital in zone 2 and everyone’s circle has been infiltrated by the virus. It’s incredibly prolific here and the social impact of all the restrictions has made it a lonely place. But we carry on don’t we?
u/reclusiverabbit sent me a colourful greeting from Maplewood with a fine selection of stamps and a sticker of a flopped down bunny. CeCe sleeps on her back, all four legs splayed, and it cracks me up every day. I was rabbit’s last card of the night, I hope she slept well, and all other cards written have safely reached their destinations!
u/stitchs_bitch surprised me with an unexpected response to a Shakespeare bundle I had sent her from Stratford Upon Avon. Two cards and two beautiful bookmarks crocheted by the stichbitch herself! It was incredibly thoughtful and I’m so grateful and amazed at the time she took to put together such a lovely, lovely package for me.
I had sent u/wouldeye the weirdest teas I had in my cupboard and they responded to thank me. I look forward to hearing about the franken-booch that might emerge from their merging.
u/doseofchildhood not only made a lovely card, but also wrote a poem inspired by my prompt ‘volcanoes’. Apparently apt for the current sense of it being the end times. Dose says their mother is a doctor and I hope she is safe and has access to adequate protection – this has been a massive issue here and I hope it doesn’t lead to more brave medical professionals being downed by this virus. I hope their mum stays as safe as possible.
Cheesy talk from u/ninajyand about cheesecakes and cheesemaking. A couple weeks ago before they brought in queuing and monitored access to the supermarkets and everything was a trainwreck and you couldn’t buy anything and it was all stressful and fuck and, as a result, I was neither shopping nor eating, my friend sent a care package of cheese from Neal’s Yard which was incredibly thoughtful and put me in the paradoxical situation of having little to eat for a few days except really posh cheese. In normal times, there’s a ‘cheese bar’ down the market that does everything cheesy with artisanal perfection and it’s a perfect place to get fat. Currently closed, the staff are still doing deliveries of a purely mac and cheese based menu. I have so far resisted, but it won’t be for much longer.
u/Jaydeepee sent me a card which the neighbour stole. Which, as it was pointed out, means his cards have reached new heights of covetable epicness. I hope my neighbour dies*
*That was really mean and I retract it. I replace it with I hope they leave a red sock in a whites wash.
Please can you all stay safe, and wash your hands xxxx

Timestamp for today.
Standard shipping terms and conditions below:
- $10 for artisans / $15 for keysets (shipped in ziploc bags) / $25 for keysets (shipped in tray) via Singapore Post registered (6-10 working days usually; please check your tracking arrangements - for example, any registered mail going to USA will not have detailed tracking after it crosses the border and is handed over to USPS).
If you require more security and / or insurance, I can ship via DHL Express (2-3 days and fully trackable) at a significantly higher price - let me know and I'll quote actuals for you, but it's probably around $30-40 for artisans/keysets before insurance costs. I prefer this for more expensive artisans or trades (for trades, I'll arrange DHL for you as well - all you need to do is print out the waybill/invoice I'll generate for ya on your end and schedule a pickup).
- For boards, I strictly ship via DHL Express only. Shipping is $55 worldwide (actually a bit more than that actual cost-wise as aluminium and brass are p. heavy, but I'll eat a bit of the expense for ya).

2019.12.31 13:42 EDC-Blockchain You Wish, We Perform!

You Wish, We Perform!
https://preview.redd.it/t91g0n1esy741.jpg?width=1307&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=fa5cd2b49b7105a3e17f02ccea4d9e074e9339f6
The EDC Blockchain and ECRO System team congratulates all members of our community on the New Year!
2019 was very fruitful for our projects, and we want to share our results achieved during the year!
One of the most important events for the projects was the participation of the EDC Blockchain and ECRO System team in the large-scale WBS Marvels blockchain conferences in Singapore and Seoul.
During these events, the management and representatives of our project presented ecosystem products to the participants of the Asian market were actively engaged in networking and expanded the range of strategic partnerships.
Participation in the WBS Marvels blockchain summits allowed our projects to open a new South Korean market and strengthen our positions both in Asia and in the international arena, helped establish useful contacts with representatives of large crypto projects, blockchain associations, entrepreneurs from different countries and public sector representatives. In particular, we have established friendly contact with the 8th President of the UN General Assembly, Ban Ki-moon. All this allows our projects to expand the audience in the Asian market, which is one of the most technologically advanced and developed markets in the world!
The main achievement in this direction was the signing of a memorandum with the WSB Marvels chairman, Mr. Bong Kyu Park on the collaboration of EDC Blockchain and the World Blockchain Summit MARVELS organization! The memorandum is aimed at mutually accelerating the development of both companies, exchanging professional experience and implementing joint projects in the field of blockchain technologies!
Besides, the EDC Blockchain and ECRO System team took part and presented our advanced products at several large blockchain conferences, such as the Global Blockchain Industry & Entrepreneurs Summit and TokenSky Meetup in China. Moreover, the EDC and ECRO representatives participated in trade shows in Xiamen and Shanghai. We also presented the products of the global independent ECRO System at the largest food exhibition in Southeast Asia Specialty & Fine Food Asia, which was held in Singapore in July 2019.
International development, the active community growth and the popularity of our projects around the world would not have been possible without the constant work of EDC and ECRO technical specialists on improving our products and adding new services and capabilities, the emergence of which is dictated by the rapidly changing blockchain technology market.
In 2019, our programmers did a great job! We have added to the list of our products the mobile versions of the EDC Blockchain wallet for iOS and Android, which makes it possible to use the advanced transfer functionality of the EDC Blockchain platform with a smartphone and greatly simplify the work with platform services! Now owners of iOS and Android gadgets can use the anonymous transfers function, create red envelopes for holding loyalty promotions for their customers, and take advantage of the EDC Blockchain leasing program to receive daily bonuses!
This year we have expanded the opportunities for holders of our EDC bonus utility coin and increased the number of its use cases. Our partner entrepreneurs from some countries have integrated the EDC coin into their business: for example, in Lagos, Nigeria, a travel agency has launched a program that allows clients paying for various travel services with EDC. In addition, a member of our community from India became the proud owner of a stylish SUV, which he purchased for bonuses received thanks to the EDC Blockchain leasing program!
But the main event related to the expansion of opportunities for EDC coin holders was the release of the ECRO marketplace using blockchain technology! The EDC coin can be used to exchange for any goods and services on the ECRO marketplace. We are actively developing this project and are confident that in the new year more and more consumers and sellers from around the world will discover the benefits of ECRO and become part of our global independent ecosystem!
2019 was also successful year for us because we launched a unique service for creating your own digital assets. The EDC Blockchain coin constructor is quickly gaining popularity among entrepreneurs around the world as it allows you to scale your business and create simple nominal tokens for small turnover and full-fledged cryptocurrencies with many parameters and the possibility of mining using the PoS algorithm.
Another major event of the year was the beginning of cooperation with the ECRO System project. ECRO System manages a masternode, which enables users to lease their EDC coins and receive stable rewards to their EDC Blockchain wallet! This year, users have leased more than 9.5 billion EDC coins to the masternode, and now they can simply watch the daily increase in the number of bonus accruals on their EDC Blockchain wallet!
In addition, we are preparing a New Year's surprise for our users: very soon the release of the ECRO P2P affiliate exchange will take place! This decentralized exchange platform using Atomic Swap technology allows instant secure exchanges directly between users.
We want to note the expansion of our projects on the world map thanks to the opening of new EDC Blockchain and the ECRO System project representations in different countries. In 2019, representations were opened in Turkey, China, and Latin America! EDC and ECRO representations allow members of our community to get acquainted with the company’s innovative developments and provide the opportunity for personal communication with community leaders in different countries.
During this year, the EDC Blockchain and ECRO System team held dozens of educational seminars and presentations for our community members from China, Turkey, Ukraine, Nigeria, Colombia, Venezuela, and Indonesia! Our educational events are the best way to learn about the EDC Blockchain platform and the ECRO System products, communicate with project representatives and leaders of our community, and find out how to use our innovative developments to improve everyday life!
We are actively working on the creation of the ECRO Academy educational platform. In 2019, the Academy received a functionality that will allow users developing and getting new knowledge in the area of the latest blockchain technologies, management, and marketing, and gaining professional skills to work in these areas!
Along with this, we held a major meeting and team-building event in Georgia for the international leaders of our community. The meeting was attended by EDC and ECRO community leaders from China, Latin America, Turkey, and Indonesia. This meeting made our team more united and charged participants with positive emotions for the most productive work!
This year, we have developed a detailed roadmap with all the important stages of the EDC Blockchain platform’s future strategic development for the next 2 years. This allows our community following the stages of the platform’s development and making sure the EDC Blockchain team accurately and timely fulfills all the points indicated in the roadmap.
Our company expresses its deep gratitude to the EDC Blockchain and ECRO System team participants, our partners, and the international leaders of our community! We are confident that the enthusiasm and desire for success that they demonstrate will allow us to double our achievements in the new 2020!
We wish you a Happy New Year and let this year pass for you in constant development and striving for success to achieve all your goals together with the EDC Blockchain and ECRO System!

2019.12.19 02:16 miguelos You don't need much

I recently came back from a 15-month trip around Asia (Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Cambodia, Nepal, India). Here are a few thoughts about my gear:
I never felt in danger or uncomfortable. I never felt like I was missing something. In fact, I often felt like I had too much. I'm planning to pack lighter next time.
TL;DR: 15 months, $15 backpack, $150 phone, 5-year old cotton t-shirts, $4 shorts, $3 flip flops, $1 poncho. You don't need much.

This past week, litecoin price struggled to climb above the $50.00 resistance area against the US Dollar. As a result, LTC price extended its decline below the $45.00 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Moreover, it traded close to the $42.00 level and formed a new monthly low at $42.15. Later, there was an upside correction, similar to bitcoin, Ethereum, ripple and BCH.
Litecoin recovered above the $44.00 and $45.00 resistance levels. Besides, it spiked above the $47.00 level and the hourly simple moving average. However, the upward move was capped by the $47.50 resistance area.
More importantly, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $47.80 on the hourly chart of the LTC/USD pair. If there is an upside break above the $47.80 and $48.50 resistance, the price could continue to rise.

2019.11.26 17:48 TurnOfTheScrew PSA about Tinder financial scams running in a lot of affluent Asian cities (and common scams in general, particularly for those traveling)

I'm going to post this here so that when people search this up online they have something to refer to and potentially avoid being scammed out of hundreds or thousands of dollars. Please read particularly if you live in or plan on visiting places with big financial sectors like Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong, etc. I have posted this on tinder and it got deleted without any explanation but if anyone knows of other forums to crosspost or other places to warn others, please feel free to do so. I will post it on tripadvisor as well later.
If you search this up online, there haven't been many instances until this summer where these types of scams have popped up, and people have already lost thousands of dollars. And that's just by quick search to one of the sites I remember being mentioned, who knows how many there are.
I am not sure how prevalent these scams are, because I have only run across them these 2 times personally, and was only visiting these cities for a few days to a week or so at the most. But like I said, upon searching up sites that I remember mentioned, I already see people have lost significant sums. And these posts are only 1-2 months old or so, so it must have started recently.
I have actually made money by them trying to scam me, but that doesn't change the fact that some people have lost thousands (saw a guy post that he sent 2 BTC to one of these scam sites), so even though they just started it wouldn't surprise me to see that they have potentially scammed in the hundreds of thousands total for the past few months.
These scams are a bit more sophisticated than your usual ones, so it's not a run of the mill bot with a hot pic that sends you a phishing link or girl that wants you to join her cam site. I'll give my (limited experience) of how it happens and lay out their M.O.
There’s also a few other types of scams that I’ve encountered pretty frequently so I want to also highlight these general types of scams to be aware as well; I was aware of the first 2, but this third one I only just came across. I've also used tinder in several countries and these seem to come up quite often.
Scam 1: Phising
The usual bot, or fake person with a phishing link that attempts to get your information or send you to a cam link. Pretty basic and very few actually fall for them.
Grey area scams: Escort services and “sexy” massage parlors advertised by girls.
Don’t really consider this a scam, but I guess it can lead to a lot of potentially dangerous situations (see below).
Scam 2: Clip joint
This is probably the most dangerous type of scam to you physically, and potentially most damaging psychologically. It happens in a lot of countries, and usually to travelers. It's common pretty much everywhere, and has been happening for years but there's many places where I've traveled and personally saw it proposed to myself. Places I’ve either saw it first hand or heard of it happening include Russia (particularly Moscow and St. Petersburg), Hungary (Budapest), Vietnam (Hanoi and Saigon) China (Beijing and Shanghai), but I imagine it happens pretty much at all popular tourist destinations in some form or another. I even almost fell for it myself this one time, but luckily I ended up reading someone else's TR of a similar experience in that city and it saved me from falling victim to it. So I'm hoping that in the future, this post may potentially save a few people as well.
This one is particularly dangerous, because the girl you match with is absolutely real and often very knowledgeable. It entails you meeting up somewhere but ultimately leads to her wanting to take you place where she will get you to spend on overpriced drinks/meals while she will get a cut of the profits. Oftentimes you just lose a bit of money, but it can sometimes lead to physical confrontation with bouncers if you refuse to pay, or them outright drugging you/getting you drunk enough to actually steal all your valuables. They won't usually risk this because they actually have physical establishments and they are not fly by night, but it does happen. So in this sense this can be the most dangerous physically, like those old school type scams where you would get propositioned (usually for sexual services) by seedy people on the street to a secluded location and later get robbed or charged money to get out of.
Scam 3: Financial scam
This is the one I hadn't seen until this summer and what compelled me to write this post. I didn't come across it before but have personally had propositions for it in Tokyo. After reading up the scenarios I saw some people in different prominent cities report it happening (like Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur etc.) and losing money in the process.
How it works: Girl you match with will talk to you for several days, even weeks and along the way drops hints that she is either a big shot, or from a prominent family. It's very subtle and not forced, usually they try to build up a pretty good rapport with you. However she will drop hints about financial stuff, or even wait for you to bring it up first etc. They are not amazingly good looking either, for example in my case one was very average looking and the other was good to very good looking, but nothing far fetched. Still if you are a foreigner and don't know much about the culture, their stories seem mostly plausible. I am not sure if they are real, in the sense that it's their actual pictures, but from my experience it seemed so because they always sent photos of themselves, or whatever was relevant to that conversation pretty much right away, plus I have talked to one of them on the phone, but never video chatted or met them, which was because I was going from city to city and didn't actually have much time, or wanted to anyway. Not that they ever turned down a meetup, so I am not sure if they would actually do it or not, but would obviously not recommend this unless you want to end up in the clip joint scenario. In that sense, I am not entirely sure if they are in fact "real" or it's an account simply controlled by say the girl's boyfriend/stable master, but I imagine they must at least know that person in some capacity.
There are different accounts/girls promoting the same sites with that goal in mind though. The main takeaway though, is that she will talk to you for a while, i.e. days or weeks (in my case I was doing a lot of traveling and had long waiting/down times so I've actually had a lot of time to talk to them) and subtly suggest you invest in a) a shady cryptocurrency exchange that is a scam, b) a gambling site that is also a scam. They will "gently" share some super duper Gary Cooper insider information with you as a "friendly" tip, and sort of try to guilt you into being a fool for not considering it if you have any hesitation.
And again, these seem very believable. They’ll have photos that are of the same girl in many scenarios to show off “wealth” either with fancy cars/houses/offices etc. Or even random activities that they are doing, so the stories are always kept very straight, and it’s the same person doing them. Well at least that was the case for me. And these are unique images, not showing up by reverse image searching for them either.
Now on to the scams themselves, and the two types I’ve noticed had proposed: the cryptocurrency one and the gambling site one.
The cryptocurrency exchange is easier to spot, because the two sites I was referred to looked very fake from the beginning. But sure enough, now searching them up I see people have fallen for them and sent in a lot of money (as previously mentioned, see quantities range from 2BTC to a few hundred dollars, but for the most part these have been large amounts). In any case, the sites themselves are written in bad English, but a lot of the features work, they have wallet addresses where you send and they do their best to emulate a real exchange. They suggested investing in these ICOs for these random coin that do not exist, and have no information available about them online. Red flags can be seen right away as you can see it’s not secure, and there are no reviews or any information online about them (now there are referring to people getting scammed, but in August when I was propositioned there was nothing). Also if you search the domain up you can see that it’s something registered recently and usually via godaddy or something like that and in China. Still, it can be easy to ignore those red flags, and I am not surprised that so many people fell for it. And here we are talking potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars in total scams over a few months, depending on the extent of their operations. I had a lot of free time and since I was traveling a lot and waiting in airports and the like, it was funny to see how talkative and eager they are if they think you will “invest” but then go cold as soon as they realize you are just baiting them. I managed to string mine along for a pretty long time, in fact she still sends me a message every week or so about there still being time to invest. I still troll her a bit with my responses, every now and then and get a chuckle out of it but what’s not funny is the amount of money people have actually lost to this scam so far… something that I believe will only get worse as scams will get more sophisticated.
The gambling “lottery” site scam was harder to spot because of how well made it was. I actually managed to scambait here and get 200$ out of them, but I took a risk too and could have potentially lost 600$. It was calculated though, and felt was worth it to have been able to get my name on the prestigious scammed the scammers list and be able to take 4x 50$ from them to get this feeling (won’t detail the story here since this post is overly long already and will go over the scam instead).
For this one the site was much more well made and believable than the crypto one; it was even charging rake on the platforms. There are still no scam reviews of this as of me writing this post unlike the crypto one, so in the hopes that I save others from it. It was called mgblottery.com and later changed to mgb.bet, I hope that others who will search it up and see this post before potentially getting scammed in the future. The way it works is the same method as detailed above in the crypto scam, but here the girl will let you on to her “system” for winning thousands, and show you her account history, including today’s dates, that show large winnings. Now, I would not be surprised to see that people have been potentially taken in for more than the crypto scams here, but who knows. She will suggest you start small and the deposit/withdrawal methods actually work and they have a lot of major payment processors linked to their site. The gist of it was that you play this game where you pick 5 numbers and she had a way of always winning within 7 (I think?) iterations. She used a treble martingale system where she would tell you to increase you bet size by 3x with every loss. Now it was clear to me that she had no idea about math, expected value etc. when talking to her as to why she would choose this method anything of the like (there are better ways to do it). Given that I have extensive background in the world of online sportsbetting/advantage gambling, it was pretty clear that it was a scam, but only because a) there is no way someone who is making money would give their winning methods away and let others in on their process, particularly strangers and b) there was no way a rinky dink site like this would allow anyone to win hundreds of thousands and not outright ban them when even huge sites like williamhill limit sharp bettors after they win a few thousands. Still, otherwise, depositing/withdrawing worked, the site looked credible enough, and it was much more believable than the crypto scam. They were also willing to even lose money in the process (i.e. 200$ to me) in the chance to hit it big with that whale who will come along and potentially deposit tens of thousands to “win” via this system. I hope that never happens to someone, although it most likely did. Still, hopefully this post hopefully saves some people in the future when they google tinder cryptocurrency scams or tinder lottery gambling scams. Also, they operate on other dating sites as well, and on popular messaging services like LINE and WeChat.
TL;DR: Detailing tinder scams, particularly a new one I saw pop up in the past few months where I see reports of individual people having lost several thousands, probably in the hundreds of thousands collectively. It's also scary how sophisticated these scams are getting, and will continue to get as they are taking in huge amounts from people.
Edit: Jesus, I've googled the cryptoscam again and now there is a guy claiming to have put 40,000$ in it and another guy claiming to have put $84,000. Fuck, do a simple google search people before investing these types of amounts with unknowns.
Edit: MGB.bet SCAM do not deposit there. Also MGBlottery.com same site, also a SCAM, do not deposit there.

Travel Company Allows Customers To Book Flights With BitcoinAlternative Airlines, a travel company based in the United Kingdom, has partnered with cryptocurrency service Utrust to facilitate payments with crypto.On Nov. 13, the Swiss-based digital payments processor Utrust announced a new partnership with its first merchant in the travel industry, Alternative Airlines. The two companies plan to provide customers with the ability to book flights while paying with cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Dash, DigiByte (DGB) and Utrust’s native token UTK.
IRS Clarifies Its Confusing ‘Airdrop’ Cryptocurrency Tax PolicyAmerica’s top tax authority, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), has somewhat provided clarification about its recent cryptocurrency tax guidelines. However, their final decision regarding taxing promotional airdrops is yet to be made.Critics pointed out a range of potential problems with the latest guidelines, issued in October. Perhaps most glaring among these issues was a section about “airdrops” — which, in the world of cryptocurrencies, is usually used to refer to promotional giveaways or customer rewards.Per Bloomberg Tax, Christopher Wrobel, an attorney in the IRS Office of the Associate Chief Counsel (Income Tax and Accounting) confirmed that while hard fork-generated revenues are taxable under the latest rulings, the revenue ruling doesn’t apply to promotional airdrop giveaways. But Wrobel did state that the IRS “hasn’t yet decided” whether such promotional airdrops should be treated as taxable.
AFME Calls For Supervisory Convergence On The Regulation Of Crypto-AssetsThe Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME) has published a new paper outlining five recommendations for delivering “supervisory convergence on the regulation of crypto-assets” across the region.In other words, the voice of Europe’s wholesale financial markets is saying it wants to encourage collaboration between regulators and those in Europe willing to tap into the cryptocurrency world by drawing up pointers which “work towards a common approach to the regulation and development of crypto-assets in financial services.”

Yesterday, we saw a couple of bearish patterns for bitcoin below the $8,880 resistance against the US Dollar. BTC remained in a bearish zone below the $8,800 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
The last rejection was near the $8,780 level and the 100 hourly SMA. A high was formed near $8,784 before the price declined below $8,700. Moreover, the price traded below $8,680 and it is currently testing the $8,640 support area.
If there is an upside correction, the $8,710 level is an immediate resistance. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $8,784 high to $8,636 low is also near the $8,710 level.

Huawei To Advance Commercial Application Of Blockchain, Says Director Of Huawei Blockchain ProjectRecently, blockchain has been a quite hot word in China after President XI Jinping claimed the emerging technology is vital to the future of the country. ZHANG Xiaojun, the director of the Huawei blockchain project, shared his opinions on the current development of blockchain in a recent interview.When talking about the obstacles faced by the blockchain in terms of the wide application, ZHANG pointed out four points. Firstly, users hope to increase revenue through blockchain, while the technology itself is to reduce operating cost; secondly, the security of blockchain technology is still insufficient, which may lead to new security risks in the application; thirdly, the shortage of cross-chain standards brings difficulties in the large commercial application of blockchain; lastly, blockchain is becoming an isolated island, which makes POC possible but blocks it to be commercialized.What Huawei faces is the first obstacle, according to ZHANG. He said the company intends to provide customers with a clear value demonstration for blockchain, which will help sweep aside customers’ concerns and enlarge their commercial application layout.Besides, regarding opportunities brought by 5G to blockchain, he stated that the blockchain technology would not only be deployed in the core cloud but also the edge cloud. And 5G can meet demands of large bandwidth and low latency for the edge cloud blockchain in the case of large commercial use.
China Launches A Blockchain-Based Identification System For Smart CitiesChina has launched a blockchain-based identification system for smart cities, aimed at better connectivity and data sharing between these cities.The system has been developed by three institutes in the city of Shijiazhuang and will assign a unique, global digital ID to nationwide smart cities, Global Times reported on Nov. 4, citing state-run Xinhua News Agency.ZHANG Chao, director of the Zhongguancun Industry & Information Research Institute of Two-dimensional Code Technology, one of the developers of the blockchain-based ID system, said that the system was self-developed by China and will be “independently distributed and managed by China, with a unified distribution rule, a resolution of distributed storage and tamper-resistant code.”

DAppTotal: Airdrop Of EIDOS Is A Disaster, Top Player May Profit Over Tens Of Thousands Of Dollars Citing data by DAppTotal, ever since EIDOS launched the airdrop event, the number of its 24h active users has reached 1,260, that of its 24h transactions has surpassed 1.89 million, and its 24h trading volume has registered 1,770 EOS. Such popularity has never been seen in any other EOS DApps, according to DAppTotal. Blockchain security firm PeckShield revealed that the airdrop event of EIDOS led to the price surge of CPU, which means normal EOS transactions between users could fail and most of the users are not able to play with gaming DApps under a congested EOS network. As reported by CoinNess.com earlier, the current CPU price for 1 EOS is 0.0001 EOS. Two days ago, however, one could use 1 EOS to rent 3,600 EOS for 30 days. This indicates an increase of more than 16 times because of the EIDOS hype. DAppTotal researchers found that as of now, players have made 35.83 million transactions, containing 3.39 million EIDOS tokens, to the account ‘eidosonecoin,’ 95% of which had only 0.0001 EOS sent. If a user sold all of the EIDOS tokens at peak prices, his or her earnings could be more than tens of thousands of dollars. It is really harmful to the EOS ecosystem, said the researchers.
At Least 23k Emails Leaked By BitMEX, Claims Research Director At The Block Larry Cermak, Director of Research at The Block, tweeted, “I now have access to 23,000 emails that were leaked by BitMEX. Surprisingly, there is only one person that used a .gov email. There were 66 students/alumni that used .edu email. NYU dominates (7 people), followed by Berkley, and University of Michigan.” BitMEX has previously made a response to the leaked email address in its blog post, saying that in this instance, beyond email addresses, no other personal data or account information has been disclosed and no further emails have been sent. “The error which has caused this has been identified and fixed, ensuring our usual high standards of privacy are upheld,” the company claimed.
Chinese VC Firms Returning To Blockchain, $368M Raised In H1, 2019 By Blockchain Startups Chinese venture capital firms are taking another look at blockchain. After the 2018 crypto crash, up to 90 percent of blockchain-focused VCs left the market. Now, as China’s central government pushes for greater blockchain adoption, some are returning. During the first six months in 2019, Chinese blockchain startups raised $368 million via 71 funding deals, according to Chinese financial data tracker 01Caijing.

Crypto Custody Firm Xapo Initiated 5 Whale Transfers On Nov 1 Citing data from the Bejijing-based blockchain security company Chainsguard, the Bitcoin network witnessed multiple whale transfers on Nov 1. At 21:10:38 UTC on Nov 1, Xapo, a Bitcoin custody service provider, has conducted five whale transfers with the largest amount within one transfer marking up to 20,000 BTC. The total number of moved BTC in these transfers records 65822.01. Many of these BTC originated from the transfers of 4,999 to 10,000 BTC collected by Xapo on the Bitcoin chain at 19:19:49 and 19:32:12 on the same day. One of the main BTC sources initiated by the address starting with 37whD5 was crypto exchange Bitstamp. Previously, the above-mentioned exchange announced that its custodian would change to BitGo. Otherwise, Bitstamp had a great transfer with more than 110,000 BTC involved on October 15. At 20:53:20 on Nov 1, the wallet address beginning with 3AdpZc initiated a transfer of 5000 BTC to the exchange Poloniex. After analysis, the source can be traced back to the coins accumulated by Poloniex in March 2016. Generally speaking, the whale transfer carried out by institutions comes from the needs of business or customers. Sometimes, it is only the planned wallet management.
Utah To Facilitate Voting For Disabled Individuals Through Blockchains Recent reports indicate that blockchain technology will soon be used in Utah, as part of a trial project meant to allow disabled individuals to cast their votes. To put things into perspective, the local council and government of Utah have decided to allow blockchain-based voting via smartphones in the upcoming municipal election that will take place in November. The platform that disabled voters will be using for this election represents the result of a fruitful partnership between the Utah Country Elections Division, the National Cybersecurity Centre, Tusk Philanthropies and Voatz, a local voting app development company.
Ethereum To Increase The Blocksize By 8x Ethereum is partially addressing the many complexities of sharding by simply increasing the blocksize from the equivalent of about 1MB every ten minutes to circa 8MB. Danny Ryan, the Ethereum 2.0 coordinator, publicly said: “We are making the blocks bigger based on recent research on safe block size and propagation times, so the data availability of the system is still > 1MB/s so you can still get similar scalability gains when doing things like ZKrollup and OVM.” ZK rollups are a hybrid scaling method that combines on-chain security and second layer networks through smart contracts and zero knowledge methods. OVM is the Optimistic Virtual Machine from Plasma, with both being more sort of on top of Ethereum’s public blockchain.

During the first quarter of the year, Bitcoin was trapped inside a tight trading range, where major players began buying the fear of retail crypto investors and accumulating the asset at the lowest possible prices.
Starting in the second quarter, the first-ever crypto asset rocketed up from that trading range, and went on a parabolic rally that didn’t stop until Bitcoin met former bear market resistance at $14,000 where it was rejected.
After three consecutive red monthly candles in a row, October closed green and kept a potential bull flag formation on monthly price charts intact, giving bulls hope that the crypto asset’s 2019 rally isn’t totally finished.

BTC — BTC has continued to maintain range volatility since yesterday and is still hovering around $9200. In the past 24 hours, the net outflow of BTC capital has exceeded US $30 million, and the outflow of market capital has decreased significantly compared with the previous period. Yesterday, BTC fluctuated a lot. In the afternoon, it pretended to fall below the $9000 level and quickly rebounded to the highest around $9467. Then it rebounded slightly after stepping back on the $9000 support twice in the morning. At present, the short-term market is still in the stage of interval fluctuation, and frequent operation here may be more difficult. It is recommended to take the medium and long-term line as the investment target. The upper resistance level is close to $9600, while the lower resistance level is close to $9000. In terms of operation, it is suggested to control the position for the time being. The risk of further write back cannot be excluded here.

XIO’s Binance Dex listing proposal* was submitted this week. For listing on the Dex, all projects submit detailed proposals and answer questions from the Binance Node operator community who then evaluate and decide on the listing. Read more about it here. Plus, there’s a hint of an $XIO doubling opportunity in there. The full roadmap (XIO Atlas) was also released with the proposal. An updated promo video came out as well. $XIO distribution to the giveaway winners was completed this week. In this week's discussion threads, Zachary talks about leverage, ERC20-BEP2 bridge, XIO capital and how many native tokens will incubated startups share with XIO citizens. The $BOMB Instagram is now handled by the community. So the BOMB Board opened up a proposal form for opinions from the community on how best to manage it.
\[As shared in last update, the switch to Binance Chain has been shelved. $XIO will stay on Ethereum. But there will still be a token swap. Details will be shared in a later update]*
Two updates back we saw the WIP version. Here’s the full version of XIO Atlas
The $ETHOS token will be rebranding to Voyager ($VGX). The new token will be unveiled in November. Please note that there is no contract swap. This will simply be a rename. You can read more about it here. The bitcointalk Ann goes into even more details on the rebranded token’s use-cases. Understandably, there were lots of questions that came up. So the team arranged an AMA. If you missed it, check out the FAQ. Voyager also received investment from Thrust Capital through a private placement this week. Nice! Congratulations to Bounty0x for getting accepted to the Berkeley Blockchain Xcelerator program. This is huge!

Uptrenndians, don’t forget to read the $1UP tokenomics update. It explains how the token velocity will work in a way such that everyone gets an equal opportunity at stacking $1UPs no matter when they join. BTW, if you didn’t notice yet, Uptrenndian made it to the Urban Dictionary. You can vote to keep it there forever. Let’s go! One way to beat Monday morning blues is a healthy dose of Meme Mondays while watching the site climb up the Alexa rankings. Haha. And finally, the team announced a partnership with Xord who will work on the blockchain solutions on the platform.

2019.09.05 22:24 frostychocolatemint VENT: Wedding DRAMA I promised not to be a bridezilla but AITA?

I'm getting married in less than 10 days (yay) and my mom is creating serious problems and said she doesn't want to come to the reception.
Backstory: I'm from Malaysia, have lived in the US for 15+ years and the only one here. My family is mostly in Malaysia and elsewhere around the world. Got engaged in November 2018, decided jointly with DF and Families, that we would get legally married in USA in a private ceremony, followed by a lunch reception with family and friends. We are going to have a larger main reception in Malaysia, where my mom can have a "traditional" 500+ people wedding and invite everyone.
So USA wedding:
Mom, aunt, 2 sisters, BIL are coming from Malaysia, Singapore, Japan and UK. I have 2 other siblings who cannot make it and neither could my dad due to distance of travel and the sibs have young kids.
Small private ceremony, just immediate family, best friend on each side.
Lunch reception: 60-70 people at a nice italian restaurant

About 3 months ago: Mom wants her friends from Japan to come to the wedding (we know and have met them a few times when DF and I went to Japan, and also met them at my sister's weding in Malaysia.) I said um... OK? because we liked them and we thought ok what's two people. They later canceled.
About 2 months ago: Mom said that she has university friends who are doing a meetup/reunion somewhere in the midwest and she wants a few friends to come. I'm like uh. do they just want to come to the ceremony - because I don't have room to host your friends that i don't know. Also she later rescinded this plan.
About 2-3 weeks ago: Mom has been yapping to her side of the family about the "upcoming wedding", and I guess some of the relatives were hurt/offended that they weren't notified. So my mom is embarrassed and she wants me to send a wedding announcement to the family and send a fake/courtesy invite to the USA wedding and then let them know that the Malaysian invite will soon follow.
So apparently I discovered I have cousins who are students in the USA. I knew about one who was studying in Boston. IDK where she is now. We are not friends or anything. I also knew about one who was studying at Ohio State, but that's 8 hours away from me and I thought she graduated already. Turns out I had to make wedding announcement and give these courtesy invites and potentially host them. My mom's side of the family are more civilized and understood courtesy invites. My dad's side of the family does not. A bunch of them started looking at flight info and freaked me out. I freaked out to my mother. She told me they're just joking.
So this morning, my Ohio State cousin (dad's family) texted me that she is COMING. I relayed this message to my mom. She now thinks I'm blaming her for forcing me to send announcement and invite the whole family, and blame her for my cousin's attendance. So now she says that she will sit out the reception so that my cousin can be there.
She is using MEGA Asian mom guilt trip by saying she feels guilty that we spend so much money on the lunch that she doesn't eat that much anyway so she can just come to the ceremony and skip the reception so that my cousin could come. She said its SOOOO much money she can't possibly bear to think she's there eating a $300 plate (I did not say that, btw. I said the total cost of the wedding is about $300/person including meals, cake, ceremony, decor, plus not to mention I am paying for my family's Airbnb and transportation). And like now I regret telling her how much we're spending but I only did that to discourage her from inviting all these "Rando" peoples. Also she's telling my other sisters that I'm prioritizing my friends over family.
Now thinking back I shouldn't have reacted maybe I should have just called her bluff and be like, OK well we will miss you at the reception.
Also - if she thinks she can/wants to humiliate me at my own wedding event, she needs to think hard because I can get real low and humiliate her in front of her friends and family at the Malaysian reception with 500+ people.
Sorry- rant over. This needs to go to JNoMIL except its JNOMOM.

2019.05.30 03:08 SmirkingImperialist My run-in with World Ventures

About 5 years or so ago, I was living in Singapore. I just broke up with my long-term girlfriend and was a bit lonely + too much time to do so I started to go to meetup (the website + app) gatherings. There I had decent chat with a member of a "travel club" and got invited to one of her club meeting. I wanted to do a bit more travelling back then I I said, well, might as well.

I showed up, and it was a married couple. We chat for a while of random stuff: work, experience, travel, and they brought out some cheese, wine, crackers, and dips. Then 2 other guys arrived, and the video presentation started. It was World Venture, one of the travel "company" where you pay for a membership to accrue points to buy "discount" tours. Supposedly, if you introduce people into it, you get more points.

My heart was sinking. I recognise a MLM when I see one. I was just rather awkward back then so it was hard for me to refuse and head off. Then I started noticing the other 2 guests. The couple is the "presenter" but one of the other dude was more enthusiastic than a typical new "recruit" would be. I was certain he was a member too, and 3 of them were trying to corner me and the other guy into it. The other guy was quiet and it was obvious he was at a loss, too.

I then discreetly messaged one of my acquaintance to call me so I can pretend answering and have an excuse of something sudden came up. I got my excuse, and head out.

Tl;dr: got invited to a "travel club" meeting from a girl I met at a meetup. It was World Ventures. Got some cheese and wine out of it for free, then ran for the hill.

It was better than the run-in I had with NuSkin. I was conned into paying 13 American bucks to attend one of their event advertised as "science event". I really had quite a lot of free time (and I work in science) so I went. I didn't asked the inviter for a brochure. If I had, it could have been avoided. Flashy presentation. I spent the whole time reading up on the company, then looking up the peer-reviewed publication on the "research" the science face dude of the company was talking about. When I was sick of the event and reading, I walked off. I lost 13 bucks but it pushed me to actually read up on peer-reviewed science of slowing down ageing for your skin. Since then, no cosmetic company could swindle anything from me or my wife. The proven skin care is very simple:
- Have a decent diet, water intake, and don't smoke or drink.
- Use sunscreen and moisturising lotion when it's dry.
- When you buy lotions or cosmetics, look for squeeze or pump bottles. Avoid jars that you need to dip your fingers into. That grows fungi and bacteria. That's it.

2019.04.27 16:32 IISuperSlothII Trip Report - Drunken Trails of Tokyo [Solo - Spring 2019]

27/M/UK Second Trip Solo [27th March - 8th April] Drinking & Hiking

I’m not too sure how these trip reports are supposed to work so I’m just gonna wing it, if it seems overly indepth it’s because I like the idea of using it for my own nostalgia purposes as well as hoping to help others with the planning of their trip

The Overview

This was my second solo trip to Japan with the first being 3 years ago where I travelled to Tokyo, Nara, Kyoto and Osaka, this time I decided to stay in Tokyo and make day trips out and about using Asakusa as a home base. I can honestly say even though I’ve visited Tokyo twice now, spending nearly 3 weeks in total there, there is still stuff I didn’t get chance to do and on another trip back I’d at least make another short stint in Tokyo.
I will include all my photos to this report, for the sake of ease though the albums will use Google Photos because trying to upload large albums to imgur is a shitshow, I’ll link single images through imgur though as they have better integration with Reddit
An album of a few of my favourite photos

The Journey

I flew in from Heathrow to Haneda and stayed in a AirBnb in Taito Ku (Asakusa) which cost me about £468 for the 10 nights with the flight costing £630, taking £1100 in spending money (I returned with 2000yen).

An Overview

My plan for this trip was to do a lot of hiking (I was coming to the end of a charity walk doing 20,000 steps a day for cancer research UK) and a lot of drinking, which Tokyo is the perfect venue for that mix.
I can honestly say there wasn’t a single bad day within Japan (less so with my layover in China though), not even a day that I can call meh, every day was an absolute blast and made for the trip becoming my favourite trip I've ever done, really pushing outside my comfort zone in a good way.

Tips

The Trip

Day 1

Flight & Asakusa Album
  • My flight took me 9 hours to Beijing with a 5 hour layover before taking another 3 hour flight to Haneda, the timing meant I landed in Haneda about 4pm, which was probably the perfect time to land, enough time to explore a bit but also not so long that jet lag would be getting the best of me and I could sleep at a normal time.
  • Once getting off the plane in Beijing I bumped into another traveller who was on his way to Thailand so we went for a few beers at the airport (seriously why does a Chinese Airport only sell American beers?).
  • Once landing in Tokyo I went straight to the airbnb, dropped my stuff off and headed straight out to get a few more beers and to try and keep myself awake. My room being where it was meant walking to and from the train station would take me past Senso-ji which looks absolutely stunning at night.
  • My first meal in Japan ended up being a Yoshinoya beef bowl which would be the meal I ate most in Japan besides Karaage, as I’m not really the biggest foodie so quick cheap food does me sound. It was then about checking out Ueno park at night (or more specifically the crowds, it was ridiculously busy) before grabbing another beer at a bar based on a London pub calling itself an Irish bar selling Czech Beer… yeah work that one out.

Day 2

Yokohoma Album
  • Due to the chance of Torres playing (he didn’t) I grabbed some tickets for the Yokohoma Merinos vs Sagan Tosu game, Friday night kick off at the Nissan Stadium, which gave me the full day in Yokohoma.
  • I started off by grabbing a train all the way through to Negishi and then walking up through Sankeien Garden, which is beautiful when the cherry blossoms are in bloom and totally worth checking out.
  • From there it was a case of heading towards Minatomirai and walking along the Promenade. Yokohoma is a really nice city so this is definitely a walk I’d recommend. From then it was a case of checking into my hotel (I’d hired a capsule hotel so I could stick around to drink after the game) before heading off to the stadium with time to spare.
  • The game itself was a blast, a class atmosphere, awesome little pregame gambit where they reveal the home lineup. Being allowed the drink beer and get new beers while sat in the stand is a novelty I didn’t think existed anymore (literally you can’t even drink in the stands at Cheltenham for the horse racing). The game itself ended a pretty dull 0-0 but it had its moments, not exactly premier league quality but that’s a given.
  • After the game I grabbed a couple of beers in a bar nearby getting involved in the home and away fans drinking together and having a laugh before heading back towards my hotel. I had planned to hit up Chinatown but while heading through Sakuragicho I stumbled upon a bar, not the one I intended to head to but once I’d paid my 400yen seat tax and saw drinks were all 150yen it became a no brainer place to chill out.
  • It was here I made some friends, as I was about to leave this lad sparked up a conversation and that was that, we were chatting until 3am about everything from anime and games to cultural differences and what have you, it ended up being a proper laugh.
  • Then it was a case of stumbling into my capsule hotel at 4am, which really aren’t built for tall people, and especially not for tall drunk people.

Day 3

Odaiba & Roppongi Album
  • Once I’d finally got back, showered, changed and ingested enough Pocari Sweat to stop the next 5 hangovers (and to ensure I didn’t get a proper night sleep for the next 2 days) I headed out to Odaiba.
  • Odaiba feels almost like a new university town, everything about looks like it was built in the last 5 years, with a beach with a view of the Tokyo skyline as well it’s definitely worth checking out. After posing with the giant Gundam and walking down the beach all the way to the end I had to head back. Initially I’d planned to hit up the imperial palace but I found myself drifting off on the train back and thought instead to head home for a nap.
  • That nap sorted me right out and ensured I was fresh and ready to go out, I had bought tickets for the Tokyo Pub Crawl, and event I enjoyed last time I’d came even if I was a bit more nervous, this time I made the absolute most of it, had a great crack, made some travel buddies and strolled in at 7am. If you enjoy clubbing then it’s definitely something I’d recommend, you get your moneys worth out of the £20 you pay for the event.

Day 4

Shibuya & Golden Gai Album
  • After sleeping until 2pm I headed out to Yoyogi Park (I’d planned to hit up a bar close to there that I remembered enjoying but plans changed), experiencing those crowds with a hangover was a bit much, seeing the standard Yoyogi park sunday madness was pretty fun though.
  • I had arranged to meet a lad from the night before at Golden Gai on the nighttime, it turns out he was looking to get there a lot earlier than anticipated, but as I wasn’t in the mood to be racing around while hungover (this was a free day tbf, I had planned for the hangover even if it ended up being nowhere near as bad as I was expecting) I went and met him at Golden Gai for about 5ish.
  • There isn’t too much to say about Golden Gai, it’s expensive, it can be intimidating and it damn near impossible to actually meet someone there because all the streets look the same, but I fucking love it. We drank some beer, chatted with locals and other foreigners, had some sake, had some snake marinated sake, played some music, had some Yakiniku and failed to understand that the ice is meant to quell the flames while you cook, it was a cracking night.
  • Then it came to leave to get back before the final train and this is where the touts come out to play, lucky they were easy to dodge with a simple ‘yeah mate I need to catch the last train’.

Day 5

Kamakura Album
  • This is where the Pocari Sweat addiction did its damage as I got a whole 30 minutes of sleep on the sunday night, but as I’m on holiday I made sure to carry on regardless, aslong as I was walking it’d keep me awake (and I did a fuck ton of walking, literally 22 miles).
  • I also checked the weather report before heading out, rain was forecast but only after 5 which I’d be finished with my walk by then, having planned to do the Hiking route around Kamakura. Spoiler… the weather report was wrong
  • My train led me to a changover near Chiyoda so I took the opportunity to visit the area around the imperial palace, Coolish in hand. Not the most exciting of trip and I don’t think it added too much to the day besides extra footache.
  • After that I headed to Kamakura and started the hiking route, visiting Tsurugoaka and Hokokuji temples before entering the Ten’en hiking trail. The trail itself is pretty fun and not too challenging, not at least until half way through the walk (literally half way through) it not only started to rain but also threw some thunder and lightning into the mix, it right pissed it down as well, not just a little shower. Lucky I bought a waterproof coat, unluckily I was wearing shorts.
  • Also about halfway through the walk there’s a sort of rest stop run by an old couple with an incredibly friendly lady who was more than happy to talk to me. I’d recommend grabbing a beer and some food from there if it isn’t starting to rain as you arrive.
  • After getting royally drench I made it out of the Ten’en trail to Kenchoji temple, which I would have appreciated more if not completely soaked through. I tried to use the opportunity of cover to wait for the rain to pass, but I’m too impatient for that so I said fuck it, braved the Japanese Flu that the rain apparently comes with and headed back to town for some food and a much deserved beer.
  • Luckily this was enough for the rain to stop, and although I skipped out the Daibutsu hiking trail, I did find time to go see the Daibutsu itself and honestly if that’s what you’re coming to Kamakura for I’d like to recommend Mt. Nokogiri (Nokogiriyama) instead but more on that later.
  • On the way back I stopped off at a little bar called DRINK A GOGO which is a bloody cool bar, the guys got hundreds of records he plays of Japanese artists of vastly different genres, from old school hip hop to light rock, he also speaks a bit of English. Definitely check it out if you’re in the area.
  • After that it was a train back and some much needed sleep. With having walked 22 miles that day, my feet definitely felt that one, still dealing with a sprained toe didn’t exactly help matters either.

Day 6

Shinjuku Album
  • I ended up having this as a free day as the next set of days would be a bit crazy, and as I’d overslept a bit I took a late stroll into Shinjuku hitting up the batting cages for a bit then heading to the Shinjuku National Park for a chill out beneath the cherry blossoms. This is my second time going to the park and I can’t recommend it enough, just whatever you do DO NOT GO ON A WEEKEND, I walked past it on the Saturday afternoon later in the week and the queue was insane.
  • After that I headed to the bar I enjoyed the most last time I came to Tokyo but only got chance to visit the once, a little Irish bar just 10 minutes walk from the park called An Solas. Now I’ve got multiple stories from this trip alone as to why this bar is pure class, I did end up going on the Saturday as well but I’ll put them all here.
6 Reasons An Solas is my favourite bar in Tokyo
  1. Even though I had only been once some 3 years ago the first thing the bar owner (an Irish guy btw) says is “I remember you” then proceeds to recall things I’d said about myself 3 years ago, like my reasons for travelling and what have you.
  2. When I exclaimed this glass is awesome the Japanese girl who part owns the bar instantly says do you want one? And before I can even respond she’s already getting one out, cleaning it, getting a half pint one as well, bubblewrapping them and bagging them for me.
  3. While chatting to a local who had travelled the UK among other places and a girl who was heading to Australia for a year (who I still talk to Instagram since coming home, seriously if you want to connect with Japanese people when you’re over there instagram is your friend) another lad walks in who had just returned from Mexico and buys everyone at the bar a shot of tequila. Pretty much everyone I met in there had either travelled or was from a foreign country which just meant there was a lot of stories to hear, met some great people in that place.
  4. They do the absolute best Shepherds Pie, cheddar gouda and mozzarella on top, absolutely banging.
  5. They are one of the few places in Tokyo to do Sapporo on tap which is objectively the best Japanese beer.
  6. They were always willing to put the Football on for me so I could watch the Liverpool games I missed because they were on at 2/4am.
  • After drinking a hearty amount, eating some deep fried Pasta (because yeah that’s a thing apparently) I then headed to Ginza to see if I could get a booking for all you can eat a5 wagyu at Ginza Steak, which I got a slot for the next night. Then it was a case of heading home for some sleep, which having detoxed off the Pocari Sweat by this point I was able to get.

Day 7

Mt. Nokogiri Album
  • This day I had planned to go to Nikko but when I woke up I found out the weather was a measly one degree with snow, so I decided to switch some stuff around and suddenly found myself with nothing to do. So a quick 6am google search led me to Mt. Nokogiri, and it was an absolutely worthwhile trip.
  • A lot of the trains were stopped due to ‘passenger injury’ which if it is what I think it means then it’s a real shame and my sincere condolences go out to the family . This led to me getting a bus instead, which dropped me in the quietest town I’ve been to, Kazusaminato, with a view of Mt. Fuji in the far distance, and some very friendly locals.
  • My method of traversing Mt. Nokogiri was to get the ropeway up to the peak and then hike down. The Peak of Nokogiri is awesome, as you get off the ropeway you get an absolutely stunning view, cool shit carved into the rocks, loads of little buddha statues, a sawed off cliff face and a giant buddha carved into the mountain which I personally think is a lot cooler than the one in Kamakura.
  • The walk down the mountain was also really cool, seeing the underside of the mountain where they quarried it out making it look like something out of Minecraft. A lovely walk down, although the day did give me a bit of sunburn.
  • After heading back I went straight to my booking at Ginza Steak. Now I thought an 8:30 booking would give me enough time to get my fill of all you can eat… it did not. Not to say I didn’t get a lot of steak, but I could have gone for at least another 2 or 3 steaks, but as the place was closing I had to call it a day.
  • Even so the steak itself was amazing, I paid including beer and everything else about £90 and got this set course meal, the steak itself was cooked very much on the rare side but it was damn good. You got 3 dips to use with pepper and soy sauce being my favourite combination. I did not like the garlic rice and beef soup, but a big part of that is I generally just don’t garlic as main flavouring, while I appreciate it as a hinted flavour when it’s at the forefront, yeah not for me.
  • After that it was across the road for a quick beer and some german football on the tele then off to bed.

Day 8

Mt. Fuji Album
  • My initial plan was to rent a car and hit up mt. Fuji followed by Shosenkyo Gorge, but once I hit the countryside I decided to just stick close to Fuji driving around the five lakes.
  • I got very lucky with the weather because it was Absolutely fucking perfect. The first point of call after some Konbini lunch was to hit up Churieto Pagoda for that iconic Japan shot, after chilling there for a while and going a bit mad with the selfies I head to the first of the five lakes, Lake Kawaguchi. From there I drove out hitting the edge of 3 of the other lakes (Saiko, Motosu and Shoji) Saiko being especially great if you just want to chill in almost silence with Fuji overlooking you while locals fish below you.
  • The last section of the drive was over the mountain into the Yamanashi prefecture to a quiet little park that looked like it hadn’t been touched in years, before heading back and experiencing driving in Japan at its absolute worst… fucking trying to get through Ueno at 7-8pm, City driving at night with full rush hour is my worst nightmare. I eventually made it back on time with no fines to pay and then headed back, bumping into a bar in Asakusa that did Jazz Karaoke which was a very surreal experience but also an enjoyable one.
Would I recommend driving in Japan? If you’re coming from Tokyo honestly no, it’s ridiculously expensive just to get on the highways, just toll roads for days, but once you’re passed that into the countryside, it’s a brilliant experience, possibly my favourite place to drive, so if you do want to drive I’d probably recommend doing so from Hakone where I’ve heard good things, as that would be all the good with none of the bad.

Day 9

Nikko Album
  • It was time for the 3rd day trip in a row, the weather being a huge improvement over what it would have been, going from snowcoat weather to t-shirt weather in a matter of days. I headed to Nikko early doors having bought the Nikko day pass the day before, I also paid the extra for the limited express on the way there because local trains confuse the fuck out of google maps and I’d rather deal with that when I’ve woken up.
  • Once getting to Nikko I got on the first bus to Kegon Waterfall, first stopping off at the observatory for a pretty cracking view, before getting back on the bus and heading to the waterfall itself. After a beer and some lunch I head back down into the Nikko forest.
  • Nikko’s mix between the mountain and forest makes for a really cool experience, while the mountain area provides some wonderful views the forest provides temples and shrines hidden away amongst the trees. It doesn’t stop there either, upon exiting the forest you get this traditional bridge that makes for a very cool photo op.
Lore Time
So within one of the shrines there is a carving of a sleeping cat, a local told me before my trip of the significance of this cat. Apparently the locals believed that at night the cat would wake up and roam around the area, so to quell fears of this happening the artist Hidari Jingorō came back and removed the cats eyes, so if it woke up it wouldn’t be able to roam around.
I don’t how true this actually is, but it’s a nice story nonetheless.
  • Once I left Nikko on the local trains (spending the whole time confusing the fuck out of Google Maps) I headed back to Tokyo to meetup with some fellow redditors, using the group chat on LINE provided in each monthly meet up thread. The plan was to go drinking and then go Karaoke but the time from drinking to karaoke was barely enough to get tipsy, let alone drunk enough to actually enjoy it.
  • After that a few of us headed into Akihabara for some drinks, ending up at a darts bar, then some random bar where we had Kangaroo and deep fried crocodile (both taste amazing) then to some other places that escape my memory. All in all it was a decent night and I met some cool people. I walked back to Asakusa with another lad and then hopped off to bed about 5am (went to sleep with Liverpool at 1-1 versus Southampton and woke up with us winning 3-1 which was nice).

Day 10

The Last Night Album
So my flight was at 2pm the next day, so you’d think I’d have a relaxed one today, especially as it was the first time I’d properly felt a hangover on the trip… that didn’t happen
  • First I went into Ginza to look for some souvenirs to take home and get some money out just to keep me going for the night (10,000 yen). I promptly gave up on the souvenir lark as the hangover was getting the best of me, so I did the only thing there is to do with a hangover when you have a free day… hair of the dog.
  • By 4pm I was back in An Solas, I’d made plans to meet some lads I’d met on the trip seeing as it was my last day, so I just chilled out in the bar for the rest of the afternoon, drinking, watching football, rugby, chatting with randomers all that jazz. By about 9oclock one of the lads I was gonna meet said he was going to Golden Gai, and this started the maddest string of events I experienced on this trip.
  • First I met him and his friend in bar in Golden Gai, we had a few drinks and headed to Omoide Yokocho for some sake and food meeting another girl we’d met the night before. Then we headed to an eel bar where the adventure begun.
  • First one of the lads ordered some eel which watching it be cooked was an interesting experience to say the least. At this point our group was myself (UK) a guy from Singapore, a guy from Taiwan and a girl from Finland, one of the guys stated how he wanted to go to a hostess bar and being in Kabuchiko it made sense to be the place to look for one.
  • Some searching led to some dead results, so instead he asked the Japanese guy (who had been having a bit of conversation with the girl in our group) where to find one and suddenly the night lit up. This guy it turns out himself used to be a host and after a quick phonecall, he was throwing us in a taxi and off we went.
  • First this guy pays for the taxi, comes to the bar with us (which it turns out doesn’t allow foreigners this guy just managed to get us in) and then after a good hour of drinking, trying to make conversation and doing some karaoke we go to leave and so I ask how much we owe, to which he says nothing, he’d payed for the whole shebang.
  • This left us in some random area in Tokyo at 3am, but with no trains until 5 we decided to continue on, first stop was a konbini for some strong zero and to get an idea of our surroundings to hopefully find a bar still open. A few minutes later a local girl walks in so we ask her if she knows anywhere to drink, next thing we know she’s leading us around the town trying to find an open bar for us, going absolutely above and beyond for some dumb drunk foreigners. Although she was unable to find anywhere we had to stop her before thanking her profusely because I think she would have just kept looking all night.
  • Instead we found a little 24 hour ramen shop that sold beer so we chilled in there until the first train back, which led to me being back in bed by about 530am concluding the crazy fun night before my train to the airport leaving at 11 (good job I was already packed).

Day 11

China
  • The next day was basically wake up, shower, train, flight. Not really much to talk about, until I hit Beijing again for another layover this time being 11 hours, I got the bus into the City centre hoping to maybe see the sights and get a few drinks.
  • I stayed in Beijing for maybe 4 hours before just noping out, after spending 10 days in Japan feeling safe as houses I legit felt scared in Beijing, no street lights on main streets, police absolutely everywhere, multiple police checkpoints, scanners for bags just to get on the subway, it wasn’t fun. Even getting a taxi back, I ended up getting into a deal (probably ripped off as well) with some sketchy guy who stuck me in his car then fucked off for half an hour before to find enough people to fill it before he left, honestly I should have just fucked off myself because it scared the shit out of me, but it did get me back to the airport at least, evenutally.
  • I think if I do ever go back to China I’ll visit Hong Kong, seems I’d enjoy it more, got a friend over there as well which would make it easier. Beijing was not an enjoyable experience in the slightest.
  • After that it was a nice 9 hour flight back where I had 2 seats to myself which made it a lot easier to just drift off, especially necessary as I’d stupidly planned to go back to work the day after I got back.
And that concludes my amazing second trip to Japan. Why I decided on the 10 days over 2 weeks I have absolutely no idea tbh, I really should have stayed longer, I had a blast though and would love to go again, possibly visiting Hokkaida/Sapporo next time. Although it may be another few years before that comes to fruition.

2019.04.14 07:52 vedant_ag How I got rejected by 35+ startups before landing a "dream" job

Hello fellows. I recently went through a job change and would like to post my experience. Would love to compare my experiences with yours.
TL;DR: Lot of companies do not focus on good engineering. The algorithm rounds were a hit-and-miss. Negotiate.
Some facts: * I resigned and decided to take a 2 month break to completely focus on the job-hunting * Interviewed (i.e. at least 1 online round) with 35+ companies. Mostly startups (seed to series A). * Mostly in India. ~10 in EU, Japan, and other overseas through stack overflow careers. I don't think my then 8k SO reputation helped out. * I linked to my medium profile in my CV and in 3 or 4 interviews (after initial screening rounds), we talked about my (somewhat controversial) blog Can’t hack your way to the top
Now for the experiences:
In the initial calls, some of the startups insisted on not following best engineering practices "We are a 10 developer team, we don't need tests or CI". I declined to interview further with those companies. A surprising thing happened; since I emphasised the importance of good engineering, companies with similar beliefs were "so glad I said that". This shortlisting led me to the 35+ number mentioned above.
A word of advice I followed Interview with easier companies (and companies you aren't particularly interested) first. It was very important for me to get into groove for interviewing and shake the irrational fear. After a month or so of interviews I was in the zen of confidence and temperament. I gave the interviews to my favourite companies without any fear.
Initial rounds were almost always algorithm questions. I had practiced a fair amount (including strings, DP, trees). But still, sometimes the answer didn't strike me at that time. Not sure why. Would love to know your thoughts on this one. Also, the questions were quite similar across companies and geographies. Some were even exactly the same. Next rounds were high level system design, and sometimes low-level (object oriented) design. I liked these rounds, and most interesting discussions happened here. The managerial/project round were fine as well. I spoke confidently about my past projects, went deep into explanations about not only "how" but also of "why". I felt a gave a convincing reason to leave my current company and join this one. By this round I had done enough homework on the company. I asked a lot of questions; specifically on the tech team structure and engineering practices.
It became quite a stressful and overloaded 1.5 months. I had a lot of interviews lined up. I had to manage my time on google calendar. Somehow, I liked this level of stress. At one time, I was scheduling interviews up to 7 days later. HRs were quite surprised. My sleep cycle got messed up. I gave a 3-4 rounds just after waking-up with lesser sleep. Bad idea. I didn't clear any of them. Then, I started keeping couple of red bulls. I took 1 before any such interview (online or in-person). Surprisingly, it actually helped.
A lot of companies (especially the foreign ones with only online rounds) just ghosted me after an initial round and/or small project. Sad, but it happens. Even I led a few companies on while I was awaiting other interviews/offers. No point in taking the moral high ground here.
After 1.5 months of full time interviewing, most companies rejected me, and I rejected a few. A lot of rejections were because of a huge gap in salary expectations. I learnt this well in advance to talk about expected salary in the initial calls. No point in going through 1-2 weeks of interview only to reject the company since they are offering less than half your expected (I learnt that the hard way). Negotiation is important for job satisfaction. I got multiple good offers to have the leverage to negotiate.
I entered the negotiation phase with like 4 companies. It was a tough choice and even tougher to hold out and give other interviews while you have offers in hand. The companies differed across geographies, size (of team and company), industries, engineering practices, etc. I spoke to a lot of friends, trying to get hold of people working in the companies I was seriously considering.
In conclusion, I moved to Singapore to join Grab.
Update:
I got interviews through:
  1. 1st and 2nd degree referrals: I personally told (call/WhatsApp) everyone I knew that I'm looking. Some referred to their companies, some connected their friends. I tweeted to people I knew but whose number I didn't have. Everyone was more than happy to help; though only a few were actually helpful. I have a few HRs of companies in my LinkedIn. Even though I hadn't known them before they were helpful in getting me an interview.
  2. Job recruiters: Recruiters were easy to find for me on LinkedIn. They sent a lot of interviews my way. A downside: they would be annoying by calling often trying to get me to accept an offer made by their client, and by trying to middleman negotiations.
  3. Tech conferences, local meetups: Attending such events introduced me to a lot of companies with whom I wouldn't have otherwise gotten in touch with. All sponsors have one goal: hiring. I paid for travel/tickets from my own pocket (I had already quit, remember) and was more than worth it.
  4. Networking in co-working places: this was a little unorthodox, but I went to WeWork (and their like) to network. I knew a few people there and they connected me to more of them.
I practiced mostly using geeks4geeks. Saw the questions and tried to code it up myself. Always do 3.0+ (sometimes even 4) rated questions.
