It's been 3 months since my last post. Have been trying to finish up the backlog photos editing and it's finally cleared!! Many friends and readers have asked about updates in my blog or even wondered if I've stopped blogging. So, worry not, I'm back and will update my next post real soon. Sorry to keep everyone waiting and thank ou for staying tune.

This is the first time I entered a print-out photography contest. I never thought of entering a print competition as I feel that is a big hassle and is another level of competition. Judges not only look at the photo, but also the print out quality. One fine day, it just struck my mind, "Lets give it a try!". Check available competition, and yes "WPPI's Prestigious Print Competition". A competition competing with photographers from all over the world. The judging was held in Las Vegas WPPI Annual Convention. But the deadline for submission was only 2 weeks away. Without much delay, I selected 2 photos from my collection to enter the competition. Got them printed-out, framed and securely wrapped to be couriered to LA..yup, all the way to LA and the courier charges cost a bomb ..however, everything was worth it when I received a congratulations email from the WPPI's committee few days back as one of it received an "Accolade of Excellence" in the Wedding Photojournalism category.
A month ago, I submitted this photo which I named "Beginning Of A Day" to enter the WPPI Second Half Competition. With 3200 image entries this round, the competition for imaging excellence was fierce. Not only was the entries fierce, the judges were fierce too. No winners were selected for Portrait Glamour and no third winner for both Wedding Photojournalism and Portrait Animal Pets category. Eagerly waited for the result and when I finally received the result through e-mail at 1.30am our time, my wife and I totalling 4 eyes actually missed the word "Second Place"!! Mata sepet or wut @@ Only half an hour later did I realise what we've missed and was jumping for joy. Yoohoo..thought that's a good wrap up for year 2011
Hooray... It's time of the year again, lion dance, firecrackers, delicious cookies, and most importantly... Ang Pow Would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone, Happy Chinese New Year, Happy Holiday. To those travelling, it's raining season, drive safely. May the Year of the Rabbit bring prosperity and happiness to your home.
November comes early this year. Not because it has any special date in it, but a special photo, at least to me. A month a go, I received a complementary table calendar from my usual gadget vendor. Since its Nikon calendar, I make a quick flip through glancing at picture of each month. Comes November, I made an abrupt stop and my heart skip a beat. Starring at it for a moment, mixture of feelings came into my mind. Isn't that my photo?
It's Christmas!!! There's chime of silver bells & sound of joyful carols in the air. Hope this christmas be so special that you never feel lonely again and be surrounded by love one throughthout! Merry Christmas Everyone!
Is 2am in the morning and I can still hear fire crackers popping. I am getting in the Holiday Mood!!! Have a wonderful year filled with peace, prosperity, happiness, and "Good Health"
After a long consideration, finally I am in Facebook. I have been receiving a lot of invitations but did not take any action until now. I always think that this website and blog is more than enough, as maintaining it is not an easy task. I have one personal Facebook account which I've never update anything in it, not even once. So, I created this new Facebook account, just for you wedding couples & friends. I am starting to see the benefit of Facebook, but still struggling to get use to Facebook features. Nevertheless, hope to see you all in my Facebook.
