Goodbye

Posted on: August 28th, 2017 by Raz No Comments

Sometimes perhaps, the thing that is holding us back is our memories of a certain place/location and maybe moving away from it would break free from the chain of certainty that we had grew accustomed to.

The only consolation to all this, is that I will still see a group of familiar faces; Just a different location.

Observing Peace

Posted on: December 29th, 2016 by Raz No Comments

We take peace for granted, it is quite obvious that we do; In our rush to archive something in life or to do multiple things at the same time to maximize the time spent we had neglected the serenity and the simplicity on taking one things at a time at a peaceful pace.

Perhaps one of the most enjoyable moment in life is when we could truly enjoy the process instead of rushing for an outcome.

Landscape photography

Posted on: September 20th, 2015 by Raz No Comments

I would like to believe that I am a decent landscape photographer (am terrible at portraiture really), but there is this certain sense of self while taking landscape pictures that I rarely get from portraiture or street photography.

For example on the above picture ( unedited jpg straight from the camera [so forgive the sensor dust :P] ); Before pressing the shutter I was just sitting on the beach listening to the waves looking at the clouds as the sun goes down.

There was no rush and no stress to it, I did not had to press the shutter even if I was viewing it through the viewfinder for the past 1/2 minutes, I did not have to worry that people would not like the picture or even if the picture did not turn out ok.

Truly it was a pointless and selfish act, in which nobody benefited from the picture other then me who enjoyed the moment being there as I press the shutter button.

Because perhaps when it comes to landscape, I didn’t care about the result as much as the experience of being there.

IP switcher is a windows utility that helps manages static ip address profiles that enables you to quickly apply fix ip address and/or proxy to a network adapter.

Unlike most network profile management tool, IP switcher does the very minimum ( set ip address to adapter/disable or enable proxy ) via the standard windows netsh command thus negating the common issues of a complex network profile management tool.

The network profiles are stored in individual JSON text format and thus can easily be transferred  from one pc to another.

Daphne Khoo – Breathe

Breathe
Maybe we never started,
you just caught my heart
from the very start.
Maybe we’re meant to be alone
life can feel so cold
when we are apart

Injured but not broken

Posted on: October 25th, 2014 by Raz No Comments

It’s been awhile since I had injured this badly, last serious bike accident was probably in 2007 when I skidded down and another bike hit the back of my bike and slide through above me; which luckily I was only ended up in minor scratch and bruises.

Not this time

Similar condition, it was raining and the road was wet; I took a corner, lost control and skidded down. Quickly stood up after the fall knowing that it is possible that there is a car behind me that might not see me on the ground, then wave to signal a white car who coincidentally was about to make the same turning as well.

The car stop and I tried to pick up my bike and move it to the side… and this is when I realized I had busted my shoulder; luckily there are other motorist that noticed and helped me move my bike to the side as I called Edward (who is working nearby) to help me out.

He arrived in a jiffy and pushed my back to his workplace, cleaned my wound and got another friend of ours to help and send me over to the hospital.

A couple of x-rays and discussion between the Accidents and Emergency doctors, they had concluded that it is not a shoulder dislocation nor do they see any fracture on the shoulder. I was however told to drop by the next morning to see a dedicated orthopedic; who then later on concluded that it was a soft tissue injury.

Thus comes to this point, which actually… its not that bad of an injury at all, though being unable to move my shoulder without feeling pain acted more of an annoyance then the pain itself.

Anyway 8 days off work, limited movement on my right arm; lets see what I can archive or complete within that time-frame (since its rare that I get time off work these days).
