Happy New Year to one and all! Best wishes to everyone.
Tell how you are feeling today in the form of a weather report. (For example, partly cloudy, sunny with a chance of shower, etc.)
Clear! Sunny in a way, but not hot at all. No clouds. Gentle breeze every now and then. I have more or less made what I needed to in 2015. I could make a pretty good reverse bucket list (list of performances) for 2015! I am euphoric about that because I seemed to have unlocked more achievements in 2015 than in 2014. =D
What is most memorable about your high school years?
Right away, I think of how I hung out with friends for the first time, without adults taking care of us. I remember getting chocolate milk tea with pearls, going to the National Library, searching high and low for books on the thrift street, volunteering at the zoo, helping at a food fair, a funfair, and more!
And you know what? I took my first award-winning photograph at that funfair where my friends and I did our volunteer work! The award was for third place in my school.
The picture went missing long ago. However, I remember that the shot was of a treasure chest with vintage clothes inside. In the shot, the sun rays fell beautifully on the old clothes as though casting a magical glow for the clothes to come alive!
So there you have it – the story of how I started growing photography into a serious hobby.
Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewelry?
Yes. I have got a few mineral rocks from some subscription magazines. Collecting mineral rocks never made it into my serious play though. They cost way to much in Singapore.
Complete this sentence: I like watching…
Sometimes, the sun happens to fall behind a fluffy little cloud and I would catch all that egg-yolk-like glory peeking through.
I particularly love the second photo because the pastel tones of blue and pink reminds me of Paddle Pop Ice Cream.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful for you! Yes, you. Chasing the lights is almost an obsession but you stayed with me. I appreciate the compliments you have given to Cocoa Evenings. I look forward to keeping her awesome in 2016 because we deserve that beautiful break at the end of a day’s work. Keep calm and sip cocoa.
