Exciting Boredom

April 30, 2007 3

I had a very exciting weekend. Last Friday, I met Yuna (as you may probably have read in my previous post). Saturday I did a photo shoot with a dancer-teacher whom I have tried to arrange for the longest time. Sunday I had 2 sets…

A week ago, someone invited me to chat in ICQ, and so I did. Very quickly she introduced herself as Yuna from Hong Kong and asked if I am a pianist, for which I replied yes. For the next 3 hours, we chatted enough to…

The Office

April 27, 2007 0

You know how we laugh at the sitcom ‘The Office’. You know how we snigger at ‘Dilbert’ the comic strip. I’d know whether you are an office worker if you do not appreciate these strips. This week’s topic is Rewards and Recognition Above: The Boss…

Last night I visited my regular camera store, M S Color, to enquire about backpack camera bags. Florence was there and she wasted no time to sell me the latest dye sublimation photo printing machine from Sony. Dye subliation prints, unlike inkjet prints, are more…

Meebo Me!

April 23, 2007 0

See the IM chat window to the lower right on this screen called ‘Meebo Me’? This is a widget that tells you whether I am online. And if I am, you can chat with me, 1-on-1. It’s not a tagboard, but an instant messenging chat…

Plastic Bags Woes

April 22, 2007 0

I totally support the idea of not giving away free plastic bags during shopping. I am also fully aware of the Earthly situation we are facing this century, as I have written an article 18 months back. The only problem though, is: how many people…

My latest photo project was Fred Lin, an aspiring singer-songwriter-arranger, who has written a lot of materials and published on his website, fred-lin.com. He keeps himself busy currently with several commissioned projects and is scheduled to further his music studies in Canada at year-end. Here’s…

I have a dilemma. Sometimes I really want to buy stuffs that I find while shopping. The only problem is to find place to store them. That’s why I seldom buy CDs, not because I don’t like to listen to them, but where can I…

I found this blog site created by a part-time ‘auntie’ actress. It is simply refreshing to see a real elderly person blogging like any other young people. She is a true inspiration of the entire population, young and old. She shares with us her post-50s…

Dances and Photos

April 17, 2007 0

One day, I hope to be able to shoot dance photos like this guy. All I need is time and opportunities. I always believed that great photos are captured simply because the photographer is THERE. So I envy people who are given the chance to…

For months I have been receiving email requests from my friends to be added in community portals like TAGGED, WAYN (Where Are You Now), and WhoLivesNearYou, to name a few. Finally, over the weekend, I decided to sign up for all these accounts for the…

Train Drain

April 11, 2007 0

This evening I was taking the train home, and something interesting caught my eye. Amidst the crowded cabin, this guy stood right in front of a lady wearing white spaghetti-strap top. I caught him staring at her for quite a fair bit, which was rather…

Techno Retro

April 11, 2007 1

This morning I was riding on the train and spotted 2 commuters holding rather dated mobile phones. One is using the Sony Ericsson T610 and the other was using the Sony Ericsson P800. Occasionally I would also spot a Nokia 6210 user. These phones are…

Interconnect

April 10, 2007 0

Do you feel sometimes that there is a telepathic connection with the person close to you? That the connection is so strong that your body emulates the physical characteristics on the person? We know that as married couples age, they kind of resemble each other.…

Photo Journals

April 6, 2007 0

Journal 1: Photographers En Masse Where there are fashion runway shows, there are never lack of photographers. On 25 March, I was having late lunch at the Marina Square food court. The fashion show was about to start and I had quite a good view…

Last night I had the longest bus ride home. After a short grocery shopping and dinner at AMK Hub, my wife and I walked to the bus stop along Ave 3 to take a shuttle bus home. It would typically take us about 10 minutes…

15 Songs – Done

April 2, 2007 0

3 weeks ago, I was asked to complete 15 songs for a Taiwan record label by end-March. And yes, I managed to complete it within the timeline. Not because I wrote one new song a day. Actually, I was already told of my assignment 4…
