Data Mining Pokemon Nest (Part 3)

First of all, thank you for your support for the previous posts. If you’ve missed the post about ultra-rare Pokemon, it’s here. If you’ve missed the one on the starter Pokemon, it’s here . This post will cover the remaining Pokemon nests in Singapore, featuring Dratini’s nest for players to farm up their Dragonite.

With this post, most of the Pokemon nest will have been revealed with the exception of Gastly, Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan & Likitung. The reason for leaving that 4 Pokemon out is that their appearance rates belong to the Ultra-rare group. To view the Pokemon nest plotted on Google map, scroll to the bottom of the entire post.

Having worked in startups I understand the importance of having press coverage. It gives you instant audience, not to mention credibility of some sort. So I thought what would it be like to be on the other side of the coin. That’s when I joined TechInAsia as a contributor.

I Eat Failure For Breakfast Everyday


Talking about failure is almost a taboo in our society, especially the not-so-forgiving Singapore.  Social media became wall of fame for other’s success, but not ours. Everyone talks about success. It seemed that every day some ‘lucky’ companies get acquired. Or someone got promoted. Or someone got married.

Some are funnier, crazier, or dumber than others. Some are probably waiting for me to work on it further before it succeed. You judge for yourself.
