Best place to feed your curiosity and all kinds of facts & trivia. With it, life has never been the same. It's like you've the world's treasure at the tip of your fingers (or rather a click of the mouse!). An online library and one where I can accessed anywhere. That's super amazing as far as I'm concerned!
See the full review, "Unity in diversity".

Google It
Best search engine. So far no one can dispute that. Bing is trying hard though. In any case, the investors think it's worth a whopping $540 a share, so what more can I say?
3
Baidu
In some ways, the Chinese version of Google. In others, it's beyond Google. I like the media aspect of this search engine. If you live in China or needs to search Chinese sites, this is THE ONE. Keep it up, Robin Li!
4
The Cool Hunter
Excellent blog about designs from around the world. Great photography and write-ups. Love it! Check my review!
See the full review, "Aladdin opens a whole new world! Design, design & more design. It's all about awesome designs!".
5
VirtualTourist.com
This site has changed my lifestyle in the last decade & brought me to many different people I'd otherwise not met in life. A life-changing experience kinda site!
See the full review, "Travel @ the speed of thought!".
6
CNN
Without CNN in my room while on the road, I'm like a plane without its wings! Best way to keep in touch with what's going on everywhere!
7
Lunch.com
What can I say? One could get addicted! Great for exploration and engaging one's curiosity!

Read my review.
See the full review, "A Quick Lunch".
8
Great layout and excellent videos for the pros. Read my review for more.
See the full review, "Vimeo, Vimeo on the web, who is the fairest of them all?".
9
LonelyPlanet
A guide for most travelers. LonelyPlanet.com helps plan a trip before stepping into unknown territory. Sometimes, I don't buy the book but visit this site for an overview as I don't really like carrying a thick book around. At other times, I browse to see where I'll be led next.
10
Shanghaiist
It keeps one in the known while living in Shanghai. Some great tips about food and where to lunch & dine.
See the full review, "After the Expo, here comes the grassroots' vengeance!".
11
YouTube
I'm getting more and more impressed at the kind of info I could get out of this site. U just have to know how to look for them.
See the full review, "Britains got talent, Susan Boyle got dream, YouTube got big hits (thanx to Boyle!)!".
12
The world of gadgets and what's innovative out there. I enjoy it like a magazine as I do enjoy reading about the latest gadgets.
13
The Reuters News Logo
Need it more for work than anything.
14
TaoBao
A great online ebay kind of company. Lots of gadgets can be had at 1/2 of what's selling out in the market place. Interesting site.
15
Sohu
A Chinese news site only for those who can read Chinese. Good info and financial news.
16
IMDB
If you're a movie goer of fan of celebrities, this is a great site to dig for info.
17
NationalGeographic.com
If you're curious about the planet, this is where you'll dwell and find the info that excite you. Sometimes I do dwell here but mostly for the pix rather than the info.
18
Twitter
A very useful tool although I'm not on here regularly. May be in future I'll use more of it. For now, it's a novelty.
See the full review, "Twit, twit, twit... tweet your way to fame!".
19
A site with great potential and interesting contents.
20
StumbleUpon
I don't use it often these days but when you've the time to explore, this is a great site to do so which will lead you to places you've never even known existed!

What did you think of this list?

This is more like a Top 18 Websites list! :P I'll have to bookmark some of these for when I want some Chinese news :)
August 14, 2009
Hehe, I'm greedy. Top 20 would be a better idea! Then again, I usually give more than I receive! Or perhaps it's a case of Top 10 English + Top 10 Chinese. I'd have to revise that a bit :p
August 14, 2009
Speaking of which, that's another way of getting Lunch on it, hahaha... Now that I'm 'residing' here almost everyday, it's been upgraded ;-p

Good God, I just realised I did this list way back! #2 of my 40+ lists, lol.... I'm going senile! ;-)
January 19, 2010
Well, if I made 40+ list, I think I'd might lose track, too! Actually, I think I have close to that amount of lists...
