Triplynr wants to be the Google of Travel Itineraries

If you love technology and travelling, you have to check out Triplynr. Triplynr (pronounced “trip-liner), wants to streamline trip-planning and help users discover new places through peer reviews. Users create their travel itinerary on Triplynr, and share it with the rest of the community.

Once the itinerary has been created, users can book hotel rooms and their flights with integrated links to Expedia and Skyscanner.

When Triplynr launches its iOS and Android app in June, users will also able to take their itinerary with them on their phone. This includes maps stored locally in the phone’s memory, eliminating the need to download the data with expensive, overseas mobile data plans.

A Fantastic & Unforgettable Experience at SIDM Movie Night 2015

SIDM Movie Night, an annual event for NYP’s School of Interactive and Digital Media (SIDM) students and alumni, was back for another year. This year’s movie pick was Avengers: Age Of Ultron, sequel to The Avengers which premiered in 2012. I attended the event with my fellow Write Stuff member, Nauli.

The event was held on 30th of April at Filmgarde, Bugis+.  It was a great opportunity for students to hang out with their friends, and alumni to catch up with their former schoolmates, lecturers, and network with each other.

Before the screening, our guests mingled at the box office. It was great to see many SIDM alumni still keeping in touch with their alma mater.

Learning First Aid, CPR, and more!

On Tuesday, April 14, 2015, from 9am to 5pm, more than 70 NYP students, including myself, attended the Standard First Aider and CPR & AED Workshop at Block E.

I heard about this workshop through the Student Affairs Office, which sent us an email encouraging us to go for it. I thought it would be beneficial to learn more about first aid and life-saving procedures, and decided to sign up for it.
