Tomorrow-ed!

Last night when Miss Loi checked this blog’s log, she was surprised to find its traffic similar to a morning jam along the CTE. Unlike the CTE jam which is mainly due to merging traffic from the PIE, the majority of the traffic came from Tomorrow.sg. Soon it began to dawn on her that barely […]
