DD and migrating from DA, sort of

DD and migrating from DA, sort of

:thumb179871860: lol I find it rather amusing to find out I received a DD the other day, amused for receiving it, amused even more because I didn't find out until perhaps a week later. The first time I got a DD, I was informed the same day by a fellow photographer. I guess these days, most people don't really use DA anymore or just don't pay as much attention to it. What I find even more amusing is the fact that people are furious about my recipient of it with angry comments filling all over the photo. I suppose I've reached a new height in being an internet superhero (edit: troll) now that even a photo I uploaded two and a half years ago

post-AFA note

It used to be that I can name almost every cosplayer at a Singaporean event, but this is no longer the case and it feels quite surreal. The event feels a bit more distanced to me, perhaps it is the size and venue. I ended up spending most of my time hanging out with the Taiwanese guests and friends visiting from China. Just felt very different. Perhaps I will post a more in-depth post when I finish some photos. Also, I keep mentioning about retirement, but overall, this trip made me feel much better about cosplay photography, so I just might continue and up my game to levels comparable to me few years ago.

AMURICAAAAAAAAAAAA

AMURICAAAAAAAAAAAA

Moving back to AMURICAAAAAAAAAAAA Just arrived SFO yesterday with too much luggage. DHS was surprisingly nice, got stopped by customs but since I didn't bring any food, was an easy inspection. Anyways, in the Bay Area now. If anyone is looking for a web developer/software engineer, please let me know!

State of Life

State of Life

Haven't logged in after god knows how long, checked activity only to realize it has only been a month. Life has been on the fast track recently. It's hard to keep track of time in a life when comrades today turn into passerbys tomorrow, when weekends become ever more precious, and when all that seem to matter in this world is work. Then I come back to realize that perhaps it is not only me who is facing such a transition. With the username change feature up, folks around me are now changing their names to reflect their real life identities, and a more professional life. Whether it is from changing from meaningless alias to passport names,

Dear watchers on DA, I am entering a startup competition during which we have to create a business idea in 54 hours.

Available for booking@Katsucon $100/person/minute!

Not really. Just welcoming myself back to America (landing in two days) about a rather curious trend to its con scene. Although that would well pay for my tickets! I paid only $230 USD for roundtrip ticket between New York City and San Fransisco~ Even the agent who was processing my ticket was surprised that I found such a nice fare~ What sucks is that I forgot to bring my pillow on flight... It's quite a live saver during long haul flights! To make up for it, I MIGHT get a row to myself with 5 seats!!!! fingers crossed! Anyways, see you all at Katsucon, for those who are going. I really miss America. Glad I will be back in just two d

hi. might be starting a new blog.

literally on the verge of abandoning DA. just been ass busy these days after started working. traveling doesnt seem to die down due to some personal obligations that i have to attend once every so often. in fact, i still managed to coin about the same number of flights and miles in 2011 compared to 2010, averaging about one flight every five days -.- anyways, been increasing interested in starting a personal blog. topics covered will range from photography (cosplay and otherwise), travels, aviation, coding, and working as a startup. very broad, but pretty much resembles who i am. been thinking about some specific topics to write about, espe
