Cards from Across the Pond... (9)

Thursday, March 18, 2010 by , under

Without a doubt, internet has brought us many ways to communicate, make it much easier too!

It is also the internet(plus a little bit of laziness of course) that has eliminate many traditional form of communication such as letters and cards, well, for me at least.

I admit, I have substitute letters and cards with emails, ecards, and now facebook messages. Yes, I'm that lazy...

Still, I'm very excited whenever I found a personal card in the pile of junk mail I received daily. Especially when the thoughtful cards are from thousands of miles away...across the Pacific pond...

Where Has All the Time Gone??? (10)

Monday, March 08, 2010 by , under

What?! It's March already?! It felt like we just celebrated new year just yesterday!

So what have I been up to other than, well, not updating my blog. Let's see...

Trooper Gotta Work!
I was working mostly. Work is good...I'm not complaining.

AS & SANDY
When I'm not working I was doing post processing work on A.S. & Sandy's wedding photos I took back in December last year. Yup, last year, procrastinate I will. Took 1600 photos that day, deleted about 700 "bad" photos and took me 3 weeks to post process all 900 plus of them. Fortunately A.S. & Sandy are very very understanding.

Chinese New Year
And then there was Chinese New Year. Friends + foods + celebration = joy.

YuSheng
Oh, we did "Lo Sang"(Yusheng) on the 7th day of Chinese New Year too! Nicely prepared by Faye, vegetarian style! And we have a very special guest that day, my cousin, all the way from Malaysia. It was awesome!



That's about sums it up. Spring is almost here, hopefully I will have more photos to share soon...
