Happy 2013

Wow, did the holidays go by quickly or what? Happy 2013, friends! I've been having an extremely warm New Year here in Singapore, both in terms of well-wishes and the weather (think we hit 36°C/96°F yesterday).

2012 was an encouraging year, in more ways than one. Thank you all for your kind words about my photos and for spending a bit of your day in my corner of the internet, despite the fact that I only ever post about things months after they've happened. In 2013, I hope to..

...shoot more portraits, because I tend to shy away from photographing people. Lately I've been inspired by the photography of these talented folks: Jessie Webster, Bonnie Tsang, Alice Gao, Ivan Tan & Brian Ferry.

...brush up on my Mandarin & Korean, as part of my grand quest to become proficient enough to watch K-dramas without subtitles.

...travel to & explore a country I've never been to.

...learn to code. I never thought it would be possible, but Codecademy really does make learning code fun.

What new things are you looking forward to in 2013?


  1. Hello,
    Are you interested in a link exchange with http://www.studentloanshelp.info ?
    Looking forward for your response . Thanks.

  2. Ahh, I want to learn to code also! My husband is a programmer and has tried to teach me here and there, but I really want to dive in and learn. Thank you so much for sharing Codecademy!! By the way, I adore your header. Simple and lovely.

    I'm looking forward to creating more fine art, learning to live a less cluttered life, and traveling. :) Well and of course learning to code.

    1. Sounds like you're gonna have a great 2013 :) Thanks, I'm glad you like the header. Also, you're very welcome, good things are meant to be shared. Who knows, maybe by the time we reach the end of 2013 we'll be Coding Wizards (I probably won't).

  3. happy 2013! and i get yr point on learning languages - i want to really understand Korean for the sake of dramas and travelling this year too (though i tried a bit last year, no time to continue..) :)

    1. It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who's learning a language because of dramas, ha. I've been trying to use commuting time to learn via podcasts (TTMIK has some good ones), but yeah, consistency is the hardest part!
