|Industrial Transformation Asia-Pacific 2018 at Singapore Expo|
The inaugural Industrial Transformation ASIA-PACIFIC – a Hannover Messe event, will take place in Singapore, the region’s thriving manufacturing hub, at Singapore EXPO from 16 to 18 October 2018. Organised by SingEx Exhibitions together with international partner Deutsche Messe, the event is the definitive new trade platform for the 4th Industrial Revolution in Asia Pacific as the region’s manufacturing community gets ready to embark on, and showcase, their readiness for transformational change. The event will welcome more than 10,000 attendees from over 30 countries over three days.
I've attended so many events as a writer and blogger in the past 2 years. I saw the regular boring photo walls, photo booths with costumes and cardboard thought-bubbles, and even some photo booths that would digitally dress you up into character. I brought home pictures that I either lost or left stuffed in a drawer somewhere. I have never seen an event souvenir so innovative, eye-catching and memorable until last week.

According to a 2017 World Bank survey, Eighty percent of adult Filipinos are unbanked and don't have any access to credit lines. When in desperation, their only recourse is to borrow with outrageous interest rates of 20% or more from informal and unlicensed money lenders called "five-six". It is simple and enticing for the regular Juan because no collateral or supporting documents are needed. Unfortunately, it leads to a debt trap that people find hard to break out off just to stay afloat.

Everyone will definitely get old someday. Some may find the fountain of youth and stay young looking forever. But, for most of us who are not so lucky, our faces will tend to gravitate downwards as we age, causing our cheeks to droop and come side-by-side with our chins. Unsightly eyebags will start to grow and darken making us look tired and beat up. Not to mention, we will slowly dry up and wrinkle like a prune.

What is Blockchain?
According to Wikipedia...Blockchain was invented by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008 for use in the cryptocurrency Bitcoin, as its public transaction ledger. A Blockchain is a decentralized, distributed and public digital ledger that is used to record transactions across many computers so that the record cannot be altered retroactively without the alteration of all subsequent blocks and the collusion of the network.This allows the participants to verify and audit transactions inexpensively. A Blockchain database is managed autonomously using a peer-to-peer network and a distributed timestamping server. The invention of the Blockchain for Bitcoin made it the first digital currency to solve the double-spending problem without the need of a trusted authority or central server. The bitcoin design has been the inspiration for other applications.

He will be looking at nothing else but miles of blinding white terrain and unfortunately have a 50/50 chance of coming face to face with a hungry polar bear. Why?
