Six Years
Posted on: 4th of April 2009 | Under: Geek Talk, Life & Love

This blog and domain turns six years today. Wow, I didn’t know that I’ve been blabbing that long! LOL! Prior to my purchasing this domain, I was hosted at another domain for over a year (if I remember correctly). Before that, I was blogging at several different places on the web (blogger, tabulas, diary-x, blurty, livejournal, and even my manually uploaded blogs on homestead and geocities!) for almost three years. Do the math and it calculates to ten years of jumping around the internet!

Throughout those years, I’ve probably talked about everything that there is to talk about oneself; From teenage angst and school, to family matters and matters of the heart, to even trivial things like the weather, random memes, cockroach kissing (I can point a few people who would probably remember this! haha!), to auto insurance. I’ve also met a lot of wonderful people online that I can say have become really good friends of mine too. And for those who don’t know, I even met my boyfriend of almost six years, through blogging. It’s really wonderful what the internet can do to a person. :)

So, in light of the six years of this blog, I’d like to ask everyone reading to drop a line or two in the comment box. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been a long-time / regular reader or are just new or merely passing by, I’d still love to hear from you. :) Thanks!

Bloggers Meet
Posted on: 18th of December 2008 | Under: Life & Love

I’ve been blogging for almost nine years, and even if I’ve gained quite a number of friends throughout that time, I’ve only met a handful of them. I was never really active in blogger meets and events.

I think it was about time that I expanded my network here in Singapore, so last week JR and I had dinner and drinks with Ederic, Alex and Leo.

I’ve never met the guys before (I actually only knew Ederic prior to the dinner), but we still had an awesome time. We ate so much, that nothing (not even Lipovox for some people) would’ve worked to hide the belly bulge that we all went home with. XP

I like meeting new people, and I really hope to meet more bloggers here. XD

Gmail Themes

Check out my new Gmail theme:

The colors are so dainty that it makes me want to run out to get some ice cream. =P Hopefully they’ll offer more themes, or maybe allow customizable themes in the future as well. :)

The Internet Has Come A Long Way
Posted on: 11th of November 2008 | Under: Geek Talk

The internet has grown so much in the last decade that it has made lives of millions of people around the world so much easier. Knowledge is passed on so much faster now. Gone are the days when one would have to wait to get to a library to find out about a specific topic. Now, the internet allows the whole world to be explained with just a few clicks. Every topic imaginable is here: from historical events to current news, to food recipes.

 

I have been an active internet user for over eleven or twelve years, and a blogger for nine of that. It has been the best tool for researching, communication, as well as self and creative expression. For me, the internet has turned from a simple necessity to an entire lifestyle.
