2009 was probably the most exciting year for me, as well as being one of the big turning points in my life.
Some of the things include: successfully graduating from university, taking a once-in-a-life backpacking trip to Europe, starting a full-time job, upgrading to a 40D with a few lenses, shooting a couple of gigs, and more recently – my trip to Taiwan. I have been extremely fortunate along every step of the way. Looking back, my schedule has been very very busy at times, but that’s what makes it fulfilling!

In terms of my photoblog, last year I had made a new year resolution to edit more photos for 2009 – and I did keep that promise, with a total of ~1500 photos posted, my biggest year yet (probably because of all the Europe photos)! Though I did drop the number of postings to 112…

For the upcoming year, I hope to finish editing off the second half of my Europe trip (yikes! I wish I can procrastinate less and show you all the beauties of Italy and Germany), and also my trip to Taiwan.

Lastly I want to thank everyone who still reads and leaves comments on my photoblog – you have no idea how much it motivates me to become a better photographer and share images with everyone. So thank you *bows* :-) Happy new year!

“… don’t know when I’ll be back again.”

Ok actually I do know :-D
Was I kidding myself when I said no more extended trips this year besides EuroTrip? I’ll be away for the next two and half weeks to Taiwan, I still hope to post some photos while away though! See you all soon!

This is a mosaic of the 626 photos that I had posted last year on my photoblog in the image of the Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria where I took a small trip to during the summer. Click for the original size!

My New Year’s resolution for the photoblog is to spend more time editing and posting photos whenever I can (I was too occupied with other stuff last year that I didn’t get to edit much photos towards the end of last year). Hope I can do it!

Happy New Year everyone!

Happy New Year with a review of 2008!

You might see a fresh look to the site today if you come out of your RSS hiding ;-)

So I was taking a look at my site stats a while back to find that only 5% of my visitors still run on the 800×600 resolution:

Site resolution statistics

The 600-pixel width on the images were starting to look a bit small to me on a 1280 resolution, so I wanted a 1-column theme so the images could be slightly larger (800 pixels). I did some heavy modifications to the ShinRa House Blu theme and I should be sticking with this for a while (or until I get bored of it). It’s been tested with Firefox and IE (there are bugs, but I’m not going to bother) and the smaller resolution photos still look ok. If you spot any errors let me know! I’ll also need to add back my “About” page some time…

Most of the stuff from the sidebar now is hidden in the menu to the top, in case you can’t find it.

Well, how do you like the change? ;-)
