S’pore Street Festival

While the urge to post is still there, I better post the pics I took at the S’pore Street Festival on Saturday… Joan and I went there to watch a friend perform. They may look young, but they sure can rap… and the girl had an unbelievable voice… These guys were pretty cool, and they […]

It’s all good…

I’m looking through my old pictures that I backed up onto cds to see if I can find anything suitable for a book cover i’m working on, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that my 3 year old cds are still holding up fine despite reading numerous horror stories about cds that disintegrate over […]

You’ll never walk alone

Tonight we attended a friend’s birthday party at Keppel Marina. On our way in, we took a cab, and we noticed that it was a long way out to the main road. As luck would have it, we ended up having to walk out because it was such an ulu location. But the weather and […]

Guess How Much I Love You

Surprise from my girlfriend… So romantic 🙂

My Attempt at Art

Was intending to use this for a book cover I’m designing, but didn’t quite get the effect I was looking for… so much for me as an artist heh.

Lately I’ve been feeling as if time is just rushing by so fast that it gets scary when I realise that the weekend is over yet again, and it’s fast approaching the mid-year. It feels like only yesterday that I was trekking in Nepal, where time seemed inconsequential, where it felt as if all there […]

All Geeked Out

Just when I thought that there was no way that I could get geekier, Joan and I each bought an external Firewire 2 harddisk with a whopping 120gb of storage! I’ve decided that office work will remain on the external harddisk so as not to gt mixed up with my personal stuff. As usual the […]

The less you know, the happier the world seems

Ugh I hate taking medication that makes you drowsy. For some reason I seem to be very sensitive to their effects, and I feel drowsy and dull-witted even a day or two after my last dose. I read the news with dismay as yet another politician is assassinated. This time the guy that the US […]

Safety Tofu & Strange Plants

Just when we thought we weren’t going to get to go for IDN this year, Joan’s friend Prak managed to get us tickets at the early bird price! It was an awe-inspiring conference, and I was especially impressed by the talks from Mother (ad agency that did the Xelibri ads) and Fabrica (the ad/design arm […]

Dangerous and Furry

Ever wondered what happens to dangerous stuffed toys? They are incarcerated here… 😉
