Apologies for the lack of updates here recently. I’ve been on a secret mission. Tired of getting comments that the old portfolio was buggy and didn’t work across many browsers, I decided that some things needed to go. I planned…

Happy Lunar Niu Year!

Happy Lunar Niu Year!

It’s the first day in the Year of the Ox (?, which sounds like new)! Amidst gorging myself with new year goodies and meeting relatives that I haven’t seen in a year, here’s wishing everyone a prosperous and healthy year…

Obama Day!

Obama is still speaking while I’m typing this. I’m awed at how technology has enabled us to view this historic moment halfway around the world. I’m watching the live feed off CNN and so are my friends on Facebook. I’m…

Interview

Fabiano of Camera Obscura recently did an interview with me. Read my thoughts over at his blog. It also gave me an insight on how I can conduct my own interviews in the future. 2009 will see more changes taking…

Advertising?

I have been approached by a few parties this month to put up advertising on the blog. As most of you have noticed, I do not serve any ads and I intend to keep it this way. It’s really a…

© Ch’ng Yaohong, 2008 Time out! Will be going up to Kuala Lumpur for a few days tomorrow. I’m attending an opening on Wednesday and generally be chilling out for the rest of the week. I’m available if anyone wants…

Boredom. Inertia.

Honestly, I’m getting kinda bored just posting photographers’ work I find. What would you, the reader, want to read? The beautiful thing about having a blog is that I don’t have to answer to my publisher or have my agent…

Long Day

Just got back from 13 hours of interviews with people I’m collaborating on for my next project. It was extremely brutal and I’m really exhausted now. However, I am very happy that I’ve got such a good response for the…

I’m not a US citizen but I hope they make the right choice in the votes today. Vote for change!

Plea for Inspiration

Two days back, I carried out a portraiture session in school based on an idea that I had recently. I had to force myself to carry out the session because it has been awhile since I did some personal work….

Not Again…

Dear all, apologies for the lack of updates (once again) in the past week. I’ve sort of shot myself in the foot with the incredibly tight schedule that I will be experiencing in the coming weeks. Anyway, I visited the…

© Ch’ng Yaohong, 2008 Wow. I don’t know how to put this but time really flies. It has been a year since I started the blog! I would like to thank all you readers for your support, despite not posting…

Recharged

I’m back from an interesting time spent in Thailand. Made new friends and visited quite a number of galleries there. I’d be posting some stuff from Thailand in the next few days. I came back just in time to catch…

Bangkok

I’d be heading up to Bangkok tomorrow and will be there till Friday. If you are there now, I’d love to make some new friends. Would be checking out the galleries and work on a small personal project. It’s been…

Home!

I’m back home from training. It had been a painfully long two weeks, with the lack of sleep and constant need to make sure things are moving along. Things that happened: I flew on a Chinook, took charge of a…

Gone

I’d be away for the next two weeks, without access to email and the blog. I will reply to any mail or comments when I get back. And no, I’m not going on a vacation (I wish I was). I’d…

Getting Quiet

Apologies for being reticent lately. I’m currently on internship and days quickly descend into a numbing existence. One thing I have learnt about myself so far is that I simply cannot fathom working from a cubicle in the future. Being…

Sichuan: Earthquake

Depressing news from China circulating the media about the earthquake that struck Sichuan province earlier today. More than 12,000 people dead and many more still stuck under rubble. The government is seeking aid from the international community, while rescue teams…
