Today got some wind

I love my country. I love my singlish.

Something from this morning. We haven’t seen the sun for almost 2 months. I hope the beginning of 2012 brings less rainy weather so I can resume my skateboarding. Probably get myself a Xootr so I can scoot around the neighbourhood.

I am… (part 2)

…the hardest thing on earth and I’m regularly used to break banks.


A facelift for

Sometime this year, wordpress introduced some major changes in their upgrades from version 2 to 3. Nevermind the new stuff that they added, but some of the old codes seem to conflict with my previous theme and it kinda messed up the layout a little. Minor, but I didn’t like it. So I did a little shopping on themes today and found something that has the minimalist feel I like and a simple one column layout. Did some tweaking to fit my site and here it is, the new facelift before the year ends!:D

Do drop me a note if I overlooked something that doesn’t work properly. Thanks and I hope you like it:D


Lembeh 2011 December

Dr Heng said, “you can go scuba diving now”.

A post lasik dive trip. Why not? I went through my calendar and found a 2 week break that fit nicely into my schedule, so I had them blocked and sent a couple of emails to my contact at Twofish Divers. This will be my fourth time there and my second this year. I’m a little like a whale on migration, always going back to the same area year after year.

Just over less than a year, so much has changed here. I was greeted by many new faces, who would after this trip, become familiar faces that I hope to see again soon. Their way of life intrigued me. It seems like the digital revolution hasn’t really hit them yet. Life revolves around family, the sea and music. Almost every night, they will be singing and playing their homemade instruments. Merry making till the last guests turn in at about 9pm. After which some of them will stay back to have a game of chess or watch english dubbed chinese kungfu movies. I didn’t seem to notice all these ongoings in my previous trips. I knew enjoying the experience is going to be of higher priority over photography this time.

I am happy I learned something new this trip. A change in approach and mentality.

Overall, it was a great trip. A trip that offered me more questions than answers. I am already looking forward to the next trip.
