Tomo & Family.

I’m sure everyone has met and love Tomo.

I know everyone thinks he’s mighty handsome. In fact, Tomo’s so popular these days that he gets as many fan mails as I do! Haha..

You think he’s cute.. but did you know that he has a huge family of brothers and sisters that are just as cute?

Everyone, meet Tomo’s entourage.

Everyone in Tomo’s family is cute. When I had first seen them, it was a really tough decision to pick Tomo among them to be my constant companion.

All of them are just as agile as Tomo. Their heads can turn. And they can raise their arms to shout “Yeh!” too.

And just like Tomo, every single one of them has a special backside.

I hate that there are 12 of Tomo’s siblings that haven’t found nice homes.

So, I’m going to give them to my dearest readers. Each one of them will go to 12 lucky readers. This is my little way of saying Thank You for your support for this blog. I hope you provide a nice home for the little one.

  4. Your blog is a wonderful showcase of your life revolving around a lovely family and anything under the sun or moon. 😛

    • hey bing, i filled up the wrong email addy in the prev comments. 😛 it should be without “ie” before the dot.

  5. Well….I love your blog because we’re such good friends! Even though we see each other once every 8 years or so, our friendship is still as strong as ever! I’ll repost here: True friendship isn’t being inseparable, it’s being separated and nothing changes. 😀


  6. I like to read your blog mainly because of those great photos that you took and of course, those interesting facts about you and your family and some other things in the environment that we can hardly experience. Your blog make me see and learn so much!

  7. I love your blog cause it’s great to read the experiences and perspectives of a fellow singaporean living abroad. And I love the photos plus the awesome recipes!!

  8. Got to know your blog from the S’pore Blog Awards & had been following your blog since then…

    I used to set my 400D to Auto mode and after seeing the photos in your blog, gave me the inspiration to explore with the Manual mode, the results certainly look more satisfying :)

    p.s.Thank you for your advise on the 50mm f/1.4, I finally bought it last month, and I love it so much!! :)

  9. Reposting this >>>

    Your blog is a wonderful showcase of your life revolving around a lovely family and anything under the sun or moon. :)

  10. I like coming back again & again to look read about the mighty tutorials on photography/Photoshopping, or the mouth-watering food which is always made into easy step-by-step guides (even printable version? Come’on! What’s there not to love?) and simply, looking at gorgeous photos.

  11. Hey Karen, pick me, pick me… :-p

    Because you are the one and only blogger I am following.

    You need only a comment? I can still provide more if you need me to. hee… 😉

  12. Very simply, like I had said before, your blog is so ‘sunshiney’. Reading it puts a smile on my face.

  13. I just started reading your blog and I like it because of the alternative viewpoint on parenting and photography related stuff cos I am quite the shutter happy geek!

  14. Refreshing and different topic every time I read. I also like you photos very much :)

  15. I have to say enriching, entertaining and refreshing are the reasons to why I like your blog.

    The way how you post your thoughts individually in each post makes it very light-hearted to read. Even if the topic might sound very heavy, you always know how to make it less serious but still able to bring the point forward.
    How you look at life, around your family, passion, things around you… is refreshing and teaches each readers, who chance upon your site, something… and get hooked.

  16. Your blog gives me access to your 精彩 life and room for imagination ……… while I am stuck here in the rat race……. Thanks for filling this emotion need

  17. Because your blog is simple & nice. Your post are straight to the point and easy to read. and you update quite frequently. and the pictures you take are nice (but not OVERDOSE with pics). Lastly, no advertorials!! (at least i don\’t see it, or if it is an advertorial, i don\’t feel like its one).

  18. I wan i wan! I love the way yr pics are taken and also your stay in a foreign country too! 😉

  19. Just because your blog is very down to earth, with a subtle touch of the “singaporean lingo” in a foreign land making it even more enjoyable to read. Most importantly, the love factor that focus on family togetherness.

  20. I read your blog to fill my boring time and try to find inspiration. Yes i am looking for some inspiration bout what i’m gonna do with my life. Since graduated from university early 2009 until today, it seems i lost my purpose for life and just thinking ” what should i do? ” every single day.

    Luckily, there are your blog and other blogs out there that makes me think ” people out there seems to be enjoying their lives” and i enjoy reading how do you fill and enjoy your daily life.

  21. I like your honest writing, and I admire your ability to cook, write, and shoot so well…

  22. “every single one of them has a special backside” … that made me grin.

    Why I like your blog? Because I like your attitude and I like to hate myself for looking at your photos of yummy food in the middle of the night and go ‘argh!’

  23. Your blog is humble and inspirational. I love the way you design the blog’s layout – It’s nice, simple and clean. I love your pictures, personal thoughts/wisdom (sometimes they really do knock some senses into my head), life story, recipes and writing style (I like the way you incorporate humor in your writing). Ummm.. I think these are why I read your blog and keep visiting it e.v.e.r.y.d.a.y. since I accidentally bumped into it few months ago =)

  24. I especially love your cooking blog, Bing. 😛 I love your photographs, and your tips and techniques in producing great pictures. Also you tend, to make us laugh with your stories, and jokes, and it shows what a wonderful being you are. :)

  25. I love your blog because its full of nice pictures and you write about your experiences. I just saw your blog through nuffnang and your pretty picture just strikes me.

  26. cos I find your step-by-step cooking receipes really useful! they come complete with pictures :)
    thank you!
