Many of you know that I’m a WordPress expert for hire. Therefore I know you don’t mean any harm when you ask me to look at your blog when you have problems, or when you invite me for coffee to “discuss your website”.
However you should know that WordPress puts food on my table, and feeds this little guy.
In light of this knowledge, if you are asking for my help, it would be nice if you say right upfront that you’re happy to pay me (and not act surprised or peeved when I send you a price quote).
This way your site gets taken care of (like a boss), I get paid, Zack has a happy tummy and we can stay friends. Everybody wins!
Thanks a lot for your support and understanding. I value our friendship! Sincerely,
Zack looks killer with my Nerf gun and tiger-stripe sunnies
This Wednesday to Sunday (6-10 April), I am climbing Southeast Asia’s tallest mountain – Mt Kinabalu. My expedition partners are Pei Chyi (@peichyi), my brother Eric and sister Yvonne (@yviewangle). Follow us on our climb through Twitter, see if I pass out or make it to the top!
We’ll be tweeting from the mountain where we can. For the areas that we don’t have 3G or EDGE, we’ve signed up with gladlyCast to post our tweets by SMS. Yes, I know we’re obsessed.
We have a more relaxed schedule and are making the hike over 3 days and 2 nights. Our itinerary:
Day 1: Timpohon Gate to Laban Rata
Day 2: Laban Rata to Low’s Peak, back to Laban Rata
Day 3: Laban Rata back down to Timpohon
This is a map of the trail we are hiking.
P.S. This is a pretty good site for those who are curious about climbing Mt Kinabalu – ClimbMtKinabalu.com
The past 3 years have just flown by, and they’ve been the best years of my life. Happy Anniversary Pei Chyi, I love you.
Yesterday I turned 29. It was a fun day and I wanted to record this day for posterity. The day started off with my awesome wife Pei Chyi making me breakfast in bed.
I honestly thought I was dreaming. She woke me and said, “I’ve got a surprise for you. But you can’t leave the bedroom.” And thus I enjoyed my 1st ever breakfast in bed.
This was followed up with an amazing lunch with chocolate fondue for dessert.
Mmm.. now you know why I’ve put on weight since getting married.
Pei Chyi took a day off for my birthday so we went out to run a few errands, and I got a back massage in Circle Art of Massage at The Curve. First time I tried them and I was pleased with the results. Don’t let the demure Chinese female masseuse fool you – she’s really strong. I also managed to write a blog post about Friendster Group CEO Ganesh Kumar Bangah.
My birthday felt like a nice little holiday in the middle of a crazy busy period at work. Thanks Pei Chyi, I really enjoyed it and spending time with you and the boy.
Goo goo gaa gaa
I received Facebook wall posts and Tweets all day long from all of you. Like I said, I thought I got attacked by spammers when I woke up yesterday. I know that I don’t meet up with you often enough so I want to say thank you publicly on my blog.
I’m really lucky to know all of you and I appreciate our friendship. Thanks for being part of my special day yesterday. Cheers!
This year’s Father’s Day was extra special. It was the first time I celebrated Father’s Day as a son and as a new father. With only 3 months of experience I’m not the most experienced dad.
My experience to date has mainly been cradling baby to sleep at all hours of the day, pulling boogers out of baby Zack’s little nose (don’t ask), baby baths and poop disasters. It’s been quite a ride and can be pretty exhausting. For example, my Father’s Day was met with baby Zack waking up 3 times at night.
Despite the lack of beauty sleep, fatherhood has been wonderful. Every time I look at baby Zack peacefully sound asleep my heart just melts.
I’m looking forward to many more happy Father’s Days to come.
