that's me!

A recent photo of me, taken at the mangrove swamps at Pasir Ris, Singapore. Usually I don't like to have photos taken, they have always turn out , unsatisfactory. But for once, what the heck, here I am!

That's me

That's me, folks. The years show in the face and thinning hair. Have been through some rough times, but I guessed I have been a lucky guy. Had worked as a construction worker, nightclub waiter, factory hand, private tutor, and served two and a half years in the army. Now I am a "senior technical executive" in a telephone company, but it is a junior post. Go figure that out.

I could have been a journalist, but that's how life turns out. Nothing remotely connected with the arts. And here I am, my main interest, illustration and poetry. Weird guy, or maybe took a wrong turn on a road somewhere in time.

I wish I could spend more time playing than working, but the realities of life makes that just wishful thinking. But then again, there's no harm dreaming.

You have been so many things that your life experiences must be very rich.

Nice pic, looking fit!

waaaahh....athletic shot. Very nice! Now, you must put the glam-shot, the macho-male shot. Complete series!
Anyway, sounds like you've had an extremely colourful life! Mine's not half as exciting :(
