Alvin Lim

Year CS'05:

You might know Alvin Lim as the blogger and founder of Alvinology.com, a lifestyle entertainment blog he started in 2007.

A former research major, who did his thesis on the ethics of blogging, Alvin has always had a way with the blogosphere and social media. He recalled “slogging for my FYP together with my two teammates” as his most memorable experience in WKWSCI.

“We had our quarrels and disagreements, but we managed to pull through ultimately,” he said.

Alvin has moved from running his own blog to being the founder of Alvinology Media LLP, where he runs a group of websites, which include Asia361.com and Salary.sg. He is also the Global Head of Content for migme, a global digital media company that provides social entertainment services.

Alvin said the school’s alumni network has helped his career.

“Many ex-schoolmates are now my clients or we probably have crossed paths as the marketing and communication industries are small and close-knitted in Singapore.”
