30 Days of Blogging

November 30, 2006 0

The last photo captured before the camera was assaulted by the incoming champagne. The bride looked in shock :”Oh no! Have to pay damages for the equipment! Do I have enough ang pow money?” … Hahahaha, joking lah. 30 days, 35 posts. I successfully blogged…

I’ve finally completed editing the photos of my last wedding assignment! With this, I am ready to move on to my other music projects. 2 song arrangements for Victorian Days, 30 piano compositions for my new album. Date of release? End-December.

Spam! Siam!

November 28, 2006 1

‘Siam’ is not referring to the ancient name of Thailand, but a Hokkien dialect term meaning ‘out of the way’. On average, I receive about 50 spam emails on my email accounts. It’s amazing how spammers crawl the world wide web on sites to find…

Our Wedding Anniversary

November 27, 2006 1

Applied leave from work to celebrate my wedding anniversary with my wife. It’s one of those rare days when we have time for each other throughout the day. Most weekends, I would be stuck at my PC or busy with activities outside the house. I…

Late Night Shopping

November 26, 2006 0

In keeping up with the trends, I did a late night shopping today. No, it wasn’t at some fanciful shopping malls but with a studio lights supplier, Kenneth of SGStealth Photography. I accompanied my business partner-friend to purchase some lighting equipment with a shoe-string budget.…

Too Technical!

November 25, 2006 0

A reader-friend told me my blog is too technical. She has no idea what is ‘AMD’. Paiseh, how I wish I could simplify things, but sometimes it’s better to leave things unsaid than to explain the wrong way. Afterall, there is always GOOGLE! Anway, AMD…

Brain Drain

November 24, 2006 0

There are things that happened today that is worth mentioning here, but my brain is too tired to process these events into words. But at the very least, allow me to do a brain dump. Found out my colleague who is 4 months pregnant is…

Speed Demon

November 23, 2006 1

Everytime I upgrade my PC, I get a technological shock. It took me barely 15 minutes to complete the installation of Windows XP from scratch onto my latest PC. What more can I say? My only concern is whether AMD will respond well to my…

Return of the AMD

November 22, 2006 0

I walked into the shop benting on getting the Intel Core 2 Duo. I walked out of the shop with the AMD 64 X2. I must say that I received some great service from the shop veteran. I told him about the faulty AGP card…

Found the Culprit

November 21, 2006 0

After 12 hours of worry and planning contingencies on the PC upgrade, I came home and tried booting with my old AGP card. The display is back! I re-inserted the new AGP card, no display. The verdict is out: fault is on the new AGP…

Ironies of Life

November 21, 2006 0

On 17 Nov, I was so contented of myself on having a smooth life. Today, destiny plays sport on me: I got no display output on my monitors. This morning, before I went to work, I switched on the PC. I normally don’t do that,…

Vista Besta

November 20, 2006 0

I was lucky enough to search around and found a ‘backdoor’ to download Windows Vista RC1 direct from Microsoft site. Here’s the link. I’ll try to install it on my shoebox PC, but first I have to reformat my current harddisk. I can’t believe it:…

Task Check

November 19, 2006 0

Another week has passed. Lemme check what I have achieved and what I have not. MusicI’ve completed one arrangement for my musical, Victorian Days. I could have done another one if not for the PC crash which affected my mood. I’ve completed composing a song…

Grocery Shopping

November 18, 2006 0

It’s no longer an easy task. No, I’m not talking about the weight of carrying the stuffs home, but the availability. Decades ago, whichever grocery shop you go to, you are bound to get the brand and type of grocery you need. That’s partly because…

Priorities

November 17, 2006 0

I had to choose between going to Sim Lim to get my new LCD monitor and doing grocery shopping with my pregnant wife who cannot carry heavy stuffs. I had to choose the latter. I guess I can always wait for the monitor purchase since…

I’m A Kid Again!

November 16, 2006 0

Today I spent $100 on Transformers toys! Haha! I bought Starscream, Bumblebee and Megatron, these are the ‘Classic’ remakes series. Except for Starscream, the rest have undergone major alterations from the original design in order to look more robot-like (It’s a joke to see the…

DDD, a familiar term used on digital audio-visual products (e.g. compact discs) in the 1980s, implies that digital tape recorder is used during initial recording, mixing/editing and for mastering. Anyway, this term is no longer used. For more read, click here. But here, DDD holds…

It’s All About You

November 14, 2006 3

A few weeks ago, Jaslyn was feeling down, and I told her to channel her emotions into writing songs. So on 22 Oct, she managed to pen down something and sent to me. Within 15 minutes, I filled it with melody, albeit cliche angst feel,…

It’s In My Blood

November 14, 2006 0

This morning before I left for office, my wife shouted for my attention. I looked out of the window and saw a bridal car parked along the main road. The groom is waiting for the door-boy to open the car door. Soon thereafter, the entourage…
