I worked for Pacific Internet for 9 years. Later I joined a company who wanted to buy Pacific Internet. But we failed to buy. Pacific Internet become PacNet (combine with ANC). And now PacNet is shutting down the retail service. Means, @pacific.net.sg, @pacific.net.hk, @pacific.net.au, @pacific.net.th, @pacific.net.in @pacific.net.ph all will become a legend.
Here are some of the memories of Pacific Internet (the before PacNet era).
The 1996 Systems Engineering team. This team build email servers, web services, roaming solutions, and best of all, the one that makes us proud too is rabbit’s squid proxy server cache. I remember we have to assemble 16-20 PC Servers from parts got from Simlim and using the super powerful RAID controller, etc etc. The cost of making it, less than $160K, and it caches almost 40% of the entire Singapore traffic. Other provider spent few millions to buy Netcache, etc etc. Their engineers had very good life. Our engineers, have a very fun life.
Mainly the network team, and business team. Like a family.
The second generation of systems engineering team. During a Hawaiian Fiesta night. 1999 I think.
The wedding of our lovely secretary Esline.
Spent a year in Hong Kong helping the gang to transform from Super Net to Pacific Internet Hong Kong. 1998. We must get ready our systems and prepare for the Y2K to come. We threw away 33 servers and setup 16 new Y2K ready servers.
The Hong Kong team. 1998.
Outing on the beach. I miss you guys.
The management team who came to Hong Kong. 1998. Which includes the mighty queen of consumer Internet. 🙂 She really the biggest reason why Pacific Internet grows the numbers in a short few years.

We drank a lot. The Thais love to drink.
We sing a lot.

Setting up Pacific Internet Malaysia. Road Trip. We are trying to see how to setup the ISP unit in Malaysia.
This is the great CBG (Corporate Business Group) team. I know, I am not good in naming, and I am not Hokkien. So, live with the name. CB-G team. hahaha
