Today marks 10 years since the first blog post on this site. I’ve owned the domain name for about 2 years prior to that – Archive.org lists October 2001 as the first recorded date– but used it mostly as a testing ground until 2003. When I started this site, it was built on my own […]

It replaces the traditional winter/spring image of fireworks over Hong Kong. Flashback: Almost a year ago, the fireworks header was replaced by a shot from a […]
If you follow my Flickr photos, you may have noticed a recent uptick in the amount of food photos we’re posting to our Good Food set. This is all in preparation for a new project I’m working on that I hope to take the lid off over the next couple of weeks. Here’s a preview.

I’m still working out some kinks in my mobile version (permalinks are not mobile-friendly yet), and of course I also need to add auto-redirection for other mobile devices. But overall I’m glad to be […]
