They’re in the business of selling dreams and, more importantly, delivering them. After all, the Globus Family of Brands (GFOB) would not have soared and sailed to its 91st birthday, if it didn’t make the dreams they promised come true. Perhaps, not 100 percent of the time, but close. For 91 years now, the Globus family of brands (Globus, Cosmos, Monograms and Avalon Waterways) has been providing a variety of holidays all over Europe, North America, South America, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Africa. I discovered Globus through my parents Frank and Sonia Mayor. My late father Frank worked hard all his life and told his four daughters that after sending all of us to school, we were on our own and he was going to take Mom on a world tour. He kept his word. They took two Globus tours to Europe before he passed away and based on the photos of those holidays that are displayed in their house, I think Globus delivered on the dream.

SINGAPORE: During Chinese New Year last year, retiree Kenneth Tang wanted to visit his sister-in-law at her home in Upper Bukit Timah, in a relatively secluded area he was unfamiliar with.Instead of getting driving directions with a few taps of his smartphone, the 64-year-old sat in his living room, put on his reading glasses and studied the route on the pages of his 2018 street directory.“I think GPS is more convenient and better in many ways, but I use road directories because I can have a better idea of how to get to the place I am going to,” he told CNA.Mr Tang said the directory allows for more flexible alternative route planning in the event of congestion, and gives a clearer picture of nearby car parks – crucial for peak times when every lot has been snapped up.“I use road directories also because I have been using it for years, long before GPS was available,” he added. “My friends and I who are from the older generation have been … [Read more...] about In the age of online maps, who needs street directories anymore?
SINGAPORE: In the words of police investigator Zulkiflee Mohamed, it was an attack that happened “for no reason”. And he has seen many assault cases.A tourist was entering the hotel’s service lift — the wrong lift, figured the security guard who was following him. But when the guard stepped inside to query the seemingly lost guest, the man punched and kicked him.It was not long before Station Inspector Zulkiflee was on the scene with another investigation officer (IO), reviewing the closed-circuit television footage and interviewing the victim, who tried to make light of the pain in his rib area.It was nearly 4am, “around that time when people would be drunk”, said Insp Zulkiflee. But as he discovered, this assailant — whom patrol officers had detained in a toilet of the hotel in Orchard Road — was not considerably inebriated.“He smelled of alcohol, but he wasn’t drunk. He was already sober,” the Land Division IO told … [Read more...] about Inside the world of a Singapore police investigator
Ling also co-chaired the World Economic Forum on ASEAN last year, spoke at Money 20/20 in March and gave live TV interviews with news outlets like Bloomberg and CNBC. Ling acknowledges that such public appearances are all part of running Grab, but even her public relations team knows to only schedule such events once every couple of months. She admits that such engagements take a lot out of her. "When I have to do day-long activities, conferences, be on a panel … it's not that I don't enjoy speaking to people, but it takes energy away," said Ling in an interview with the Post. "After I do it, I will just hole myself up in my apartment or hotel room for the entire evening, with activities like reading a book, taking a walk or having a meal by myself." In this interview series, where a Post journalist interacts with an interviewee over an activity of their choice, settling on the activity took some doing. We toyed with the idea of swing dancing, which Ling tried for a brief period … [Read more...] about How Grab’s Tan Hooi Ling climbed her way to success
