HTC ChaCha launched in Singapore

HTC ChaCha: Dedicated facebook phone

While it is certainly not THE Facebook phone that was rumored earlier in the year, this android-qwerty phone is the first with a dedicated Facebook button. If you LOVE Facebook, want to be able to update status, post videos and photos to Facebook with a touch of a button, this is the phone for you.

Other than the Facebook-centric features, it can of course surf the web, play your music and check emails like what all android phones should do. By the way, Singtel (from Singapore) will be the first in Asia to launch the HTC ChaCha. Remember to post this on your Facebook wall ­čśë

Footprints in the sand of Melbourne

Footprints in the sand

When I took this picture along the beach of Melbourne, I immediately thought of the wonderful poem, Footprints in the Sand by Mary Stevenson. Thus when I got back home to my computer, I inserted the poem into the photo using photoshop.

How often in our most trying time we think that we are all on our own with no one to help us. We think that nobody could understand our plight or offer any form of relief. But God is always there for us, watching our every footstep and carrying us along. Sometimes we stray into the wrong path and injure ourselves, but his sustaining hand is always there to nudge us back to the straight and narrow way again.

Hebrews 13:5-6, “…┬áand be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.┬áSo that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.”

Lunar Eclipse 2011: View from Singapore

As most of you already know, a full lunar eclipse was visible on June 16 2011. I did not want to miss this opportunity, so I brought my Nikon D90 along with tripod and 18-105 (not the best lens I know!). I went to a open top of a multi-story carpark which gave me a clear view of the sky.

At 3am (Singapore time), the sky was black and there was already a partial eclipse as can be seen from the first picture above. At about 3.25am, without looking through the camera, it looked like a full eclipse. Through the lens, the moon looked blood red. After about 10mins, the clouds came and blocked out the view of the moon completely, leaving the sky in a redness that I have never seen before.

At this point, I decided not to wait any longer and go back to my bed — just in time to hear the soothing sound of the pouring rain ­čśÇ
