Happy New Year! It's the start of the Chinese New Year today and it's the Year of the Dog! The title to this post literally says Happy New Year in Chinese, or more like 'New Year Happy', but you get the picture! :)

Chinese people take the new year so seriously that they spend 15 days celebrating the Chinese New Year! 15 Days!!! that's like half a month to welcome in the new year. Lots of eating, visiting people, eating, giving and collecting Ang Pow's (red packets), eating and more eating! :)

Hope that everyone has a happy, blessed and prosperous Chinese New Year of the Dog! Woof Woof!

Retro Nerdy Geekiness!

Pong Clock!
Okay, so I nearly fell off my chair when I first saw this last year, but didn't think too much of it as it was a design concept for some company that was going to produce this clock and sell it for heaps of dough. Fast forward about 6 months, and while I was watching the Australian Open, I saw the latest American Express ad which features Andy Roddick vs Pong. This reminded me of the Pong Clock so I googled it, found out there was a screensaver version of it, then had pong clock joy on my laptop... Now I'm seriously thinking of converting my old brick of a laptop into a cool pong clock for the study...

This is sooooo cool... although I wonder how many kids nowadays will actually know and remember the original game Pong?

Lunchtime Sillyness!

Originally uploaded by swang.
Caught up with Nick for lunch today and we headed into DigiLife in the city and played with the iMac's Photobooth software. DigiLife is running a competition for the best photo sent in from the PhotoBooth software, so here is my entry... :)

It's amusing seeing two grown men, one who is a father and another who is about to be one get up to such silliness! :)

Lego Church

I came across this a while ago whilst I was browsing the net for cool LEGO creations, but earlier this week I got sent an email with some pics. I did a search and came across the author/builder's website and learnt a bit more about the LEGO Church. It's an interesting read, especially the link to the dedication sermon for this LEGO Church.

Anyways, it was nice to see a collision of two things that I feel quite passionate about... :)

Happy New Year!

Symbol of God's Promises

It's 2006 and I've been a bit silent for a while as I have been weary from life recently.

However the last day of our holidays, when the wifey and I were feeling rather sorry for ourselves that we had to go back to work after 10 wonderful days at home with Hannah, we were walking back from a quick dinner at Farrell's Cafe round the corner and the dusk sky had the most amazing surreal and awesome colour to it.

We turned around behind us and we were greeted with the most amazing sight of a huge rainbow, and a double rainbow even... :) It was a sign! Of God's wonderful promises to us, which reminded and encouraged us and most definitely lifted our spirits ready to face the coming year head on with all its challenges!

This year promises to be overwhelming and full on with the wifey studying and taking her exams this year, and also for myself as I need to make some important decisions about my career and where I want to head with it.

It is also a very exciting time for some very close friends of ours as quite a number of them are expecting bubs which all happen to be due in May. This includes my best friend Nick who has been a dear brother in Christ and a wonderful encouragement to myself, and it is awesome that he is also about to be a father.

So here is to 2006, hope that it brings all of God's richest blessings to everyone, and even though it might seem to be a challenge this year, I know that it will be an awesome year as I can face it with God on my side!

Best thing too about this year is that it is another 365 mornings that I get to wake up to seeing a bright smiling Hannah, and 365 evenings that I get to tuck my precious little daughter into bed after our nightly prayer. :)
