Hello there. I am Terry and I am a full-time undergraduate based in Singapore. I take photos, write a blog and design websites.

And no, I'm not a teddy bear.

teddY-risatioNâ„¢ Turns Four!

teddY-risatioNâ„¢ turns four!

Yep, teddY-risatioNâ„¢ turns four today :) this blog was born on the 1st of July, 2004. A brief summary of my endeavours in the blogosphere is that I started off with Google’s Blogger, with a friend’s help. Mind you, I have no idea what XHTML and CSS were back then. After a year, my dad bought teddy-o-ted.com as an early birthday gift for me, and teddY-risatioNâ„¢ is transferred to a fantastic blogging platform called WordPress. Realising that self-hosted WordPress opens up a million more posibilites when it comes to content management and design, I was determined to pick up XHTML, CSS and some basic digital darkroom skills using Photoshop. Today I stand before you as a amateur designer and photographer :razz:

Special thanks to all the friends in the big wide blogosphere, Facebook, Twitter and Plurk that gave me the courage to move on wtih life after difficult scenarios and keep on the spirit of blogging.

The past year has been a really meaningful one to me! In chronological order, I’ve:

  1. Ate icecream, my best comfort food behind CoffeeBean’s mudpie, with my classmates :)
  2. Stitched the biggest panorama so far… 600kb of scrolling fun!
  3. Bought a pair of Converse canvas shoes, and headed over to Marina Bay, Singapore for a photoshoot session.
  4. Attempted writing a short story, the first time in my life!
  5. Survived A Levels and successfully prevented myself from puking on my lap after watching The Kingdom (blame it on motion sickness!!!)
  6. Visited the brand new airport terminal of Changi Airport, Singapore. Done a photoshoot as well!
  7. Engaged in a virtual catfight with a childish flamer… and WON!
  8. Started playing around with HDR – a new level of photography.
  9. Adopted and cared for the little kittens in my neighbourhood.
  10. Got my braces installed – I’m now Mr Ugly Betty!
  11. Published a HDR tutorial – the best tutorials I’ve written so far, IMHO.
  12. Shared funny YouTube clips, and laughed like a madman.
  13. Seen a biker falling from the sky – ouch!
  14. Embarked on a cycling trip around my township.
  15. Got a new dSLR – Sony Alpha 200!

Have fun reading. Oh, and before I end this post, I would want to share a photo I’ve been keeping in my folder for so long – I couldn’t find a post to place it in :) now this is a good chance!

My Plushies!

You can click on it to view the larger one in Lightbox :) the last time I counted, there are 34 or 36 of them in total. This is the collection of plushies my brother and I share – we’ve been collecting since we’re little kids but lost interest when we become teenagers. One day the prospect of losing them in a fire haunted me so much that I brought all of them out of the closet (no pun intended) just to take a photo for them. So here they are, all 34 (or is it 36?) of them ;)

Have a great week ahead!
