The name is tricky.

In Asia, either your name is in the form of {family name} {given name}, or {given name} {son/daughter of} {father’s name} like some Arabic or Indian names. On this blog, which I expect Westernised audiences, I am going with the conventional {given name} {family name} format. Hence KimSia Sim.

You can just call me Kim. It’s easier. And, please, you aren’t the first one to make a North Korean joke about my name.

I live, work, and play in a city-state called Singapore. I run a business managing tech for other businesses. It’s currently called Oppoin (rhymes with appoint) for legacy reasons. In other words, I run a tech B2B outfit.


I like to build stuff. At first, I wasn’t very good. Eventually, I got better. And then, I enjoy building stuff even more. Which leads me to do more of it. Which begets more progress.

You get the idea.

I have either built things on my own, or I have done it within a team structure.

Things I have built personally:

  1. A quotation and purchase order systems for telecommunications equipment firm
  2. A PDF reconciliation systems for asset management firm

Things I have built by leading a team:

  1. A RFID warehouse inventory system with iPod devices for warehouse workers for kitchenware company based in China
  2. A one-way data replication for the same warehouse inventory system above so that employees based outside of China can access the data

These are the most challenging projects I have worked on. Therefore, they have also become my most satisfying achievements to date.

Paid Writing

I am adding writing to my skillset. Thankfully, I get to practise while getting paid for it. These are some of the articles that I wrote for other publications for money.

{~~ Articles links to be added later… Sorry ~~}

What I aim to write in this blog

In this blog, I will write a variety of topics. Thematically, I will write about patterns of breakthroughs. Breakthroughs are sudden, important, and dramatic results. The idea is that despite the difficulty, there is some kind of meaningful, predictable, and recurring patterns amongst breakthrough performances and results.

The plan is to find these patterns. Then study these patterns through decoding and deciphering them. And then reuse them effectively.
