Welcome to, where I share my ideas and thoughts about technology, and will include book recommendations and favourite internet readings in the future!

My name is Kent Lai, and I am currently works as a Solution Architect in GovTech, and is experienced in planning, designing, delivering, and managing large-scale enterprise solutions in the South-East Asia region since 2007.

I hold a Master Degree in Technology major Software Engineering (NUS 2013), and is also a certified SCEA5 (2009), PMP (2013), TOGAFv9.1 Certified (2013), CISSP (2015), and AWS Certified Solution Architect - Associate (2017).

Some of my favourite books are "Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity", "The Design of Everyday Things", "Thinking, Fast and Slow" and strongly recommends anyone to read them.
