My Growth: Photos When I Was a Little Kid

A few days ago, my dad found some old photos of me in his computer. Those pictures were taken when I was 3, 4, and 5. So, I thought I might like to share them with you ;-). Here they are!

I appreciate my father for introducing me to the computer and finding these photos. I also thank my mother for taking the time to nurture and take care of me when I was young. I hope you enjoyed my photos. 🙂

I Won an Acer Notebook Computer from a Blog Carnival!

PICT0005Hooray! I won an Acer notebook computer (and a Kaspersky Internet Security pack for a year) from a blog ‘k’arnival in Malaysia sponsored by Kaspersky. I’ve always wanted a notebook computer.

The computer I used before (some sort of a cross between a notebook and a desktop) was too inconvenient and the screen was too small (800px x 600px). That was why I badly wanted a notebook computer.

Blog 411

PICT0389 If you’ve read my blog post yesterday, you would know that I was attending the blog 411 session at the blog carnival, where famous Malaysian bloggers share their tips and experience on blogging.

There were two contests there: The K.O. Quiz contest, and the live blogging contest. The grand prize for each of the contests is an Acer notebook computer. To be honest, I wrote yesterday’s post because I participated in the live blogging contest, but I didn’t win probably because I am good at writing tips, not events.

So, I entered the quiz contest, in which you would be asked questions on blogging, Internet security, etc. Here are some pictures of me participating in the K.O. quiz contest. (Thanks to Niki Cheong for taking these photos below.)

I am the one in the white shirt. The stuff on my face is a Kaspersky logo sticker.
 


That’s Amanda Choe asking me the final question of the quiz.

And… to my surprise, I was the winner! I felt very touched because I’ve never won 1st place in a contest like this before. I just couldn’t believe it!

First of all, I want to thank my parents for taking me to the blog carnival. I also want to thank all the people there in the carnival for supporting me. Lastly, I want to thank my blog readers for encouraging me to blog. Thank you very much! 😀

Now, with this notebook computer, I’ll enjoy blogging more! I’m looking forward to writing more quality blog posts for you, so, please stay tuned!

Cheers! 😉

Blog Seminar with Top Malaysian Bloggers

Hey guys, I have been attending the blog ‘k’arnival today at Petaling Jaya in Malaysia today. It was a very exciting event. In fact, this is the very first blog carnival I have ever been to. Now, I want to share my experience on the Blog 411 session.

Blog 411

I attended the “Blog 411” session in the carnival. There were quite a number of people there at the seminar. It’s when popular Malaysian bloggers, like Kenny Sia, Jason Goh, Niki Cheong, and other popular Malaysian bloggers speak and share their experiences and tips on blogging.

Oh, and here is some (cool) pictures I took from the blog 411 session:

Yeah, I think those are some of the best tips they’ve shared, and I agree with that. The seminar was awesome and I enjoyed hearing the top bloggers speak and had a lot of fun! I learned a lot from the seminar and I am looking forward to attending this blog ‘k’arnival next year!

Update 22nd June 2009: Yay! I won a notebook computer from the K.O. quiz contest in this carnival!

Why I Haven’t Been Posting Frequently in April

Hi guys 🙂

If you’ve been around Gloson Blog for a while, you’d have realized that I rarely posted on April. I’m very sorry for not posting because I was really, really, really busy with my upcoming funny poetry book for kids.

One day (13th April), as my mother flipped through the mock-up of my poetry book, she realized how plain the illustrations are (which I illustrated in December 2008), and how much it can be improved!

For example, my poem mentioned cakes and milkshakes, but there are no cakes or milkshakes in the picture! Only the main character is drawn.

Here is a shot of the before and after of the illustration of my poem, Shopping List.

Shopping List

“A bicycle,
some comic books,
a basketball,
some storybooks.

“A super robot
that’s  polite,
a  noisy  drum,
a giant kite.

“A model of
a dinosaur,
some chocolate
and sweets galore!

"A water gun,
a large TV,
a cold ice cream
dessert for me!”

Mom looked at list,
face full of gloom.
“I won’t buy ‘til
you clean your room!”

Here’s another one; Picnic (The one with he cakes and milkshakes)

Picnic

I’m going on a picnic and
am feeling like a king.
I’m packing all the yummy stuff
that I just love to bring.

Some biscuits and a giant burger,
marshmallows and cakes,
roasted chicken and soft drinks,
some lollipops and shakes.

Some chicken nuggets, chocolate bars,
refreshing cherry punch.
Some doughnuts and potato chips
and oranges to munch.

A big umbrella, just in case
the weather becomes hot,
and now, I am prepared to drive\
to the best picnic spot.

At last I’ve made it to the spot;
I hope there are no ants.
Alas, I have to go back home
for I forgot my pants!

I’ve been working for 12 hours in a row (4pm until 4am) almost everyday for almost a month. My mother accompanied me while I worked.

It took longer than expected, because I became committed to draw every detail according to what my poems described. I was very exhausted but I wanted to finish the book as fast as possible because I wanted to help my family.

And, I didn’t go to school for almost a month for the sake of this project; my family has financial problems and I pray that this book is going to help us.

I missed a lot of lessons and now, I’ve to catch up with all the lessons and revise for my May exam (on Monday, which is tomorrow).

I probably won’t be posting much this coming week because I have to study for my May exam.

I’m really looking forward to posting quality articles for you after my exam, so stay tuned for more posts after my exam 😉 .
