Continually impressed by how the Singapore civil service is rather pleasant to deal with. From animals to taxes, they’ve been amazing.

Plant Nanny: An adorable mobile app that reminds you to drink water at regular intervals and tracks how much you’re drinking in a day.

Momentum: A Google Chrome extension that replaces the New Tab page with a personal dashboard that lets you set a daily goal and to-do list, and shows inspirational photos and quotes. Momentum helps me start every day (and tab) with positivity.
