Ok ok, I'll update...

Sneaky bugger that Snark. That fella, go ask his readers to bombard my blog asking me to update. So, its been 4 months... But hey, I was busy... really. Anyway, thanks to de bugger, my readership grew by 500%!! (ya mah... from 1 fella to 6 fellas...heh heh!)

Anyway, back to my post. Ok, dunno what to post so I'll just rant. Please bear with me. If you don't like it, too bad. After all, you asked for it..

Ok, firstly, lots and lots of belated wishes. Here goes:

Belated Merry Christmas!!

Belated Happy New Year!!

Belated Happy Chinese New Year!! Gong Xi Fa Chai!!


Next: Biking

Let me rant a bit about my biking life. Its virtually non existent. Apart from commuting, haven't had time for any ride, long or short.... well except for the Heavy Metal ride. Hoping to find some time in March to do some canyon strafing.

I've also been thinking of changing my bike recently. The cruiser thing has its good points (comfy ride, flashy chrome etc. etc.), but the serious need-for-speed syndrome may be getting the better of me. Just the other day, a friend lend me his Honda CBR900 for a spin. I was grinning from ear to ear after that. Think its just a matter of time. Will find some time to blog about my bike choices, but I've narrowed it down to 2 bikes.


Blogging.

This blogging thing is hard. I don't know how some of you do it. It takes me forever to get my thoughts on (virtual) paper. And even then, I think it sucks. Ask me to write a business plan, sure, no prob. I'll give you volumes to read. Report? Done in a flash. Presentation? Easy. Proposals? Sure. Blog? Errr....... Houston, we have a problem. Crap, even this post has all the section headings like a biz paper.

So, I've kinda been toying around with the idea of making this more like a pictorial blog. We'll see how things go. Know where I can get a cheap digicam?


Finally: Project Pergola

Just before CNY, I finally manage to set up my fish pond and a small rock garden (that's another story for another day). Its in my garden right next to the patio. Unfortunately, its got no shade from the elements. So, I've been thinking of putting up a nice little pergola over it. Now, to get it done by a professional is gonna cost me over a grand. So I thought "hmm, can't be too difficult to build one. After all, its just a few pieces of wood bolted together". Thus spawned Project Pergola.

Did some basic research on the net for designs and settled with a simple pergola structure. Snark suggested some lattice, which I'm still considering. Looks nice, but I've got a nagging feeling its gonna be a bitch to make. Now, I've gotta go source some wood. Anyone know where I can get some cheap? Also, I need a circular saw. Anyone? Snark has agreed to help me build the thing, right Snark? Hopefully, we'll get it up by April... More updates to come.

Ok, that's it for the comeback post. Hopefully it won't be another 4 months before another.
