    Hmm, why not introduce some local webhosting since I suppose most of those people whom are interested in blogging would be locals, especially after featuring it in ComputerTimes 🙂

    Good point. Let me get back to you on that … after I clear all my work 🙂
    But I don’t recommend most local web hosts because there isn’t much choice in Singapore and the service and prices aren’t competitive enough. I myself host with which you can check out in the meantime.

    On hindsight, forget I ever recommended Veoweb. They screwed up the server many times and lost my domain name. I’m never hosting with them again.
