Something Better

It's official. I am moving over to here from now onwards. I have plenty of updates to do after this!

I am exploring on what I should and should not put in my new place as it looks pretty professional (not because of me sadly). So I have to keep up with its professional image! Should I open it so it's easier to ask for comments and opinions which I foresee I would need in time to come? Right now I am still confused. I wanna work it out, along with many many things!

Give me super powers!

And Lastly, I have to say goodbye to Blogger. It's been 2 years. We simply move on when we find something better.

With final love,

Experiementation- Diminishing Complication

Recently I have done obsessive amount of digital manipulation to my photographs, not necessarily or pertaining to pictures of myself only. Ok, I would never consider myself narcissistic or a master of digital manipulation. I would say self portraits are a good way to experiment and explore. And you can always TRY to get it right later by reshooting the same thing easily. Also I am not a big fan of digital manipulated photos as I would like to keep the 'integrity' of the scene as it is. However, I was pretty inspired by tonnes of beautifully manipulated pictures out there so I would like to give it a try too.

I guess I am obsessed with complexity currently, as you can see from the layering of 'stuff' in a pretty straight forward and bland portrait. This picture was taken long ago and I just used it for manipulation purpose. The background or the layered pictures are actually pictures I took as a bnw series done on 'nature'. It is a theme that I enjoyed doing and fits my notion of being 'complex'. I admit I am not 100% satisfied with what I have as I still feel it's not complex enough? I think I have a problem here. I may manipulate it further and post it up. MMM....

2 Down, 1 More Dread Remaining. TX SUCKS!

Like what I have expected, the msn and email issues are resolved and the microsoft guys fixed up the back-end for me, really quickly. I was dreading that the email correspondence between me and Microsoft will go on forever. I don't know what I did to screw up their back-end. ah hem...
Just so glad everything is intact.

I think my fingers are shaking abit when I typed it... In the end, Microsoft didn't let me down. They got two person to fix the problem. Hooray! And according to what I have expected, qq is really going to be a DREAD. I wanna kill the TX guys. All the support guy did was to give me a freaking official reply asking me to clear my cookies and cache and try again..when it's their own back-end can't even stop from producing page errors. Wonderful. I resort to leaving messages everywhere, official site or not. And one place just deleted my comment. Bring on the censorship. Everything's perfect!

Fortunately, being my usual optimistic self (ah hem..), I shall give them some BOD and wait the official site to reply. However, it will be another story otherwise.

BTW, can microsoft buy TX over? Opps..maybe I shouldn't say that when I am actually using a Mac. wth

Another BTW, it's somehow quite ironic when I am solving a problem of hotmail using gmail and writing to Microsoft on a Mac. Hahaha

Stranded on My Own Island

Hai...sometimes when you are in bad luck, it goes all the way down to the bottom and comes and goes like tides or maybe tsunamis. To think about it..this year really isn't a good year for me.

Like how I lost so many things in one go, like how memories are just wiped out in a blink of an eye, like how a dying relationship went completely dead, like how friends came and went, like how disappointment come so easily, like how fragile an ego can be, like how precious time has become.

Now I have something else to add to this bad year. I am on the verge of losing my qq, msn and email. Msn and email should be easy to get back but qq is totally another story. TX can never compare to microsoft in their customer service. Without hotmail I can still use gmail, without msn I can simply stop chatting, without qq I can..try not to think about it. But they are significant beyond just a bunch of applications. Besides their sentimental values, I have so much information inside that's too precious to be lost. Like strings tied to a kite, I do not want to cut those last strings to that kite. (Yes, I am trying to sound profound. )

BUT, I remain hopeful. This year is not over, maybe it's unfair to conclude that its a bad year after all. I hope good things will come my way soon. And there are plenty of good souls out there.

Psst..sometimes I wish I am a hacker. Oh no...
