Hey there,

Thanks for dropping by my blog. This site was formerly named Darkspore’s World, with the URL http://www.darkspore.com. I was then known as Darkspore.

I first started using this pseudonym many years back, especially during the time when I was crazily fragging my friends in Counterstrike (that hot monster of a game…). It stuck on when I battled countless enemies in the workplace over the office LAN, defeating the wimps in Age of Empires. They all came to fear the name Darkspore whenever the war drums started. Those were crazy (and fun) times.

It is also pretty appropriate, since I live in Singapore and Spore is like a short-form of the word. Sometimes, I tend to see the deeper and darker side of living in Singapore, and hence – Darkspore. Friends used to ask me, why Darkspore? Is it Dark-Singapore? What is dark spore? Can eat or not? *shrug* To date I still do not have a very good answer. I just like it. Happy?!

On 1-May-2010, I migrated my old blog to http://www.lenscrazed.com. As my interests remain largely in photography and information technology, this site will be mainly focused on these topics. This is why there may be some references in the posts to the old site, and perhaps some missing links which I had not cleaned up. Bear with me please. Hope you will have a fun ride along with me!
