ANZAC Day 2013 – that’s the day Elsie learnt how to ride a bike.
Arthur & Celia’s wedding at Central Baptist Church Went to this wedding on 3.16 for an old mate of mine, Arthur 吕永生 who picked a very appropriate verse for the wedding — John 3:16 (although the Chinese preaching was quite a bit lacking, couldn’t do justice to the passage).
Jason Fried at 37signals talking about how you should/should not bash someone publicly. “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but […]
We have been on holidays on the Gold Coast over the past week — pretty much our typical twice-a-year Gold Coast holidays where we lived at my parents’ place. Except this time Vivian’s parents also came along so we have to (1) organised accommodation for them ($500 for 6 nights at Broadbeach Savannah via Wotif) […]
3 laps of the park. Almost killed me. #needmoreexercise Bought a pair of Brooks Ghost II last year in the hope of getting back to jogging (bought on OzBargain, of course). So far has been disappointing — more of myself who can’t seem to be able to schedule the time for exercise (oh, the shoes […]
Surprise this morning when I checked the mail — some gifts, ie 2 pens and 2 wrist bands, from The Orange Pigeon. They are a charity organisation based in Melton VIC that grants wishes to those who are terminally ill. They were one of the recipients of OzBargain’s Christmas donation. We’ve also made some larger […]
Yes FREE Sauna in Sydney today — just need to step outside. Almost 9PM and its still just before 40 degrees. Forecast says that the temperature won’t drop until mid night. Still, thankfully I am still staying safely indoor rather than embracing the constant hair-dryer blows. Or under the threat of bush fire.
Idolisation Today: Sydney. Start of Sydney Festival today and 60 thousand people gathered at Darling Harbour to checkout Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman’s Rubber Duck, according to this SMH article. We waited an hour under scorching sun for this giant sized bathing toy to arrive.
Rather than watching the parade reciting “lest we forget”, we went to Coogee & had a barbie with FOCUS friends.
Relaxed afternoon. That’s the “lake” that I used to kayaking 17-18 years ago, but now it’s populated with powered boats.
Took the flight from Sydney to Gold Coast and landed here at around 3:25pm. Holidaying? Not really, but it is nice to be back to the house that I once called home 20 years ago, sleeping in the very same bedroom.
First time taking the family to the zoo this year, and last time we came was on the New Year’s Eve. Note that the photo was taken using Galaxy Nexus’ Panoramic photo feature — first time testing it and it worked amazingly well. Oh, did I mentioned that I recently bought a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, […]
After trying to squeeze in a bit of reading time before bed for the last 2 months, I’ve finally managed to finish reading all 7 volumes of Harry Potter. My almost-8-year-old Anna started reading them first, now half way through Prisoner of Azkaban, has already grown into a fanatic of the series, sorted into Ravenclaw […]
That’s why I don’t go to many networking events. Talking to the new social media expert startup entrepreneurs can be quite stressful sometimes.
Funny that after I posted my last blog post a few days ago, Jeff Atwood blogged about moving on today at Coding Horror. He is leaving StockOverflow for family reason. Startup life is hard on families. We just welcomed two new members into our family, and running as fast as you can isn’t sustainible for […]
