2014.02.17 | 我博風格

[Volume 9 Issue 2, #1861]
我由2006年開始學人玩寫blog, 不經不覺就快滿8年.. 累積咁多年, 我覺得自己已經建立起自己嘅一套風格, 有人話透過一位博克經營佢自己個blog嘅風格, 可以睇到佢個性格.. 我依家就列出我自己所見到嘅所謂風格, 你又能夠從中了解到我嘅性格嗎?? :p
  • 我啲post個標題, 從來都係有一個日期帶頭, 跟住先係一個四字標題, 只有中文個長度係固定, 咁樣我個post archive先會見到個list整齊出現.. 仲有, 如果你有留意到, 每個post我都會有一個流水號碼噃!! :)
  • 每一個post我都儘量做到精簡, 最怕就係長篇大論, 相我都通常放一兩張就夠(如果需要放多張相, 我一定會用slideshow或click-through album).. 不過我一個post要寫兩種語言, 真係唔好以為我寫得短就唔駛嘥咁多精力呀, 哈哈!!
  • 近呢幾年, 我發覺自己甚少寫啲我每日做過啲乜嘢, 我每日食過啲乜嘢, 今日發生咗啲乜嘢事之類嘅post.. 可能我自己都覺得我嘅生活就係平反納悶到, 連我自己都唔想再悶親多一個人!! 囧~~ :p
  • 我每個月都會幫我個blog換上新裝, 即席新banner同presentation, 其實就好似月刊雜誌換新封面一樣.. 我覺得咁樣呢, 至少比起每次到訪都見到一樣嘅背景來得稍為有些少新鮮感啩?? :p
  • 仲有乜嘢係你發覺到而想要補充㗎呢?? :)
i started (to follow my friends to play with) blogging since 2006, and soon it is coming to a full eight years.. i think i have established my very own style of blogging throughout the years, and some said you can read a blogger's personality from the way he/she runs his/her blog.. how true?? let me list a few style i can see from my blog, wonder if you could see deeper into my personality from there?? :p
  • the title for each of my posts starts with a date before the 4-word title in chinese, only chinese gives fixed length and this way i can see them lined up neatly in my posts archive.. and yeah, i labelled my posts with a running number you realized??
  • i try to keep my posts short and sweet possible with minimum photos (slideshow or click-through album in use if i have a lot to share).. but i write in two languages, hence the effort may not be as minimum as you expect, haha!!
  • in recent years, i hardly write about what i do or what i eat in a day, or what has happened in a typical day of mine.. my life is probably too boring hence i hope not to bore more people, geez!! :p
  • i change the presentation and banner of my blog on a monthly basis, it's shooting a new cover for a monthly magazine.. i guess it's a little more exciting than seeing the same old layout all the time huh?? :p
  • any other things that you noticed and want to add on?? :)

  1. Different people different styles, though I have to admit your style is really pro and neat.. Even all your goodies (gifts and all) all come together with your “chop” aka trademark.. I was impressed by your style that’s why I started stalking your blog last year coz I feel your style very pro lor, “hi tech” also, keke..

    4. Ok, princess is back (for now) coz the work can be delayed for a few minutes.. So I quickly maximize the window and post a few comments sin..

    5. Whatever the blog is about depends on the person also lor.. What the person likes, what the person knows, the nature of the person etc.. Like you said you don’t relaly post on what you eat & what you do, but more to discussions, day-to-day thingy and all, yes..

      For me, more to my (amateur) baking & cooking, parenting, pregnancy, TTC (trying to conceive), work, rant and some nonsense (wait, some? Mostly nonsense wor, keke).. So, different people, different like..

      Like I used to say, my blog, my like lah.. Chui meh? (blow ahh?)

      Suka baca boleh komen, tak suka baca tak payah komen..
      Suka baca boleh tengok, tak suka baca tak payah tengok..
      My blog is for nice people only.

      Keep up the good work in your blog SK. Although I have been stalking many blogs now, yours is still the very first one I paid attention too ever since I started blogging. Like I can relate. All the things you wrote were so real, no “kaka” (fake fake), although sometimes, some of your post I don’t really un or I cant think of things to comment back..

      But overall, your blog rocks..

      Delete
    6. I would say I read a “balanced” blog la daily..

      I read about mummy’s blog that talks mostly on parenting, kids, food for kids, home-schooling activities, what-nots.. Then, I also read blogs like yours.. More to discussion, day-to-day happenings.. Then, I also read blogs like Meow’s, out & about, updates (BBW, book exchange, haha), jalan jalan makan makan thingy.. Then there’s also blogs purely on baking only which I find interesting coz I can get what I want in a jiffy, like when I want to bake something fast..

      So the blog world is amazing.. I know many things, read many things and have seen many things from the blog world..

      Some blogs will keep me going back for more :)

    7. Your last point, I wana add on this:
      i write all my post (and comments) in small letters, i never used capital letters before coz i'm lazy to click the Shift tab for capital letter..

      Ok ahh? Tee hee.....

      Delete
    8. Ya lo. His things and blog post look simple but if see proprerly it is very "deep".

      why taking half day leave? Hope the kids are ok.

      Got go Sonia's blog or not? Her baking very simple and step to step punya. Baking dummy like me also managed to follow quite easily


      Shame on me when I first come SK blog. I saja simply comments. For the longest time tarak tau what the heck every now and then have chart.

      Me no guts start chatting here . But after some time, I see SK and then Yan and Yvonne started to put comments under my comments then i baru dare start to reply.

      Now blogging also not easy la.

      Cannot simply write. Later buta buta kena sue. Like if go restaurant food not nice. Cannot straight say not nice. Have to give constructive criticsimn. Some may say aiya...I wanna write whatever i suka la. But then must jaga also coz blog is public place. Silap hari bulan kena sue like the Taiwan blogger who wrote about one beef noodle restaurant. Say not nice things. Kena pay money back to the restaurant.

    9. haiz...my blog like rojak la..See recipe also cannot follow one or else go Holland.

      Me not enough disciplne to label my post. Die more...already have the function at the end up the post but slow slow I become lazy. Now if I wanna cari back things in my blog I terbalik have to use google LOL.

      But I bet if SK wanna cari back things in his blog he will be able to cari.

      I really salute STP for being able to cari back things in his blog coz his titles all is song title. Surely he have an elephant memory for being able to recall which song title is for which food post/restaurant post

    10. Yup, whatever you say, I sure listen la Meow..

      I went to see-see-look-look at Nasi Lemak lover’s blog, very nice blog.. Got most of the things that I want.. Everytime when I visit Mr. G, sure her blog and recipes will appear first, keke..

      Talking about baking, I only choose simple ingredients.. So sometimes, I will source a few recipes online, then choose the most simple one to follow lor.. For example, some cakes require the egg whites to be beaten separately, then beat until jadi whipped cream, baru add the whipped egg whites into the batter.. Some pulak ok, easy, terus masukkan the eggs inside the batter and beat together.. So I will choose the one with the eggs all sekali masuk into the batter that one lor..

      Dunno you and me same or not in this case? Hehe.. Coz I realize u and me 2x5 sehati sejiwa in certain stuffs..

      Delete
    11. I like reading your blog la Meow.. Serious.. Rojak is good in a way.. If your blog only talks about one common boring thing, then boring lor, kan.. keke.. But rojak blog that talks about everything, something nonsense, sometimes “jing king”, ok ma.. I like.. Your blog, your like, your sukak lah, kan?

      Before I stalked SK’s blog lastime, I actually found your blog first.. You ingat tak, I was telling you I was searching for QQ taufu from HoHo steamboat, then I came across your blog, with pictures of the QQ taufu.. Then I read read ha, eh, ok wor this blog..

      You talk about parenting, kids (J boy), eating out, simple cooking, books and all. All that I want, all that I like.. Ok wor, humble and simple. I like. So I read your blog for quite some time before I read on your blog rolls.. Lastime I still can see your blog rolls at the side of your blog.. Now tarak see liao.. You took out? Then from there, I got to know about SK’s blog, coz I wana know what blog you follow..

      Delete
    12. I also only dare to post longer comments recently.. Before this, I was holding back also.. Then I think think, aiya, blog world, you dunno me, I dunno you.. You never see me, I never see you, so I not shy to post longer comments lor..

      Post post ha, eh, post until today, and until I got glamour name – Princess Ribbon, keke..

      Aiya, I am like you also la.. Even until now.. Shy to go and comment under other people’s thread.. Until I see people comment under my thread only I dare to go to other thread to comment.. But it also has to depend on topic of the day.. If I have things to write about the post, then ok la, I “dare” to comment in other people’s thread.. If not, then malu lor.. 3 mm sik 7 go and pandai pandai “pak zhong” (langgar putih) comment, some people might not like ma..

      Like you said, now blogging (and commenting) is not easy also.. Cannot simply comment, later kena cursed or sued, like your example.. I got listen to you ahh, now I more careful liao lor.. Pakai bullet-proof vest and reload all the ammos first before masuk into the blogger world.. Then can tanggalkan the vest when I’m out of the blogger world.. Hahaha, talk macam playing computer games pulak..

    13. Confirmed her blog popular lor. LOL

      Tak ingat lor. My memory loss jor lo

      I took out the blog rool goz got one chi sin por from australia kept coming my blog and commenting hamsap barang. Then I discovered she go to my blogroll and went through them and kacau people there. You go see anay blog la. He also kena kacau by this chi sin por. And he blasted her sky high. Ho ho siew. The post about anay running the standchart race punya.

      That is also why i put up comment moderation la. Every weekend she will come and comment and i no need read her comment. see the name terus press "SPAM" . Muhahahahahaha

      Biar la she sor har sor har come. My advertisers see got foreign traffic they lagi suka . At least I have cheok sou.

      Lucky comments in my blog not that many daily. Senang wanna monitor.

    15. Good afternoon bloggers and 2 aunties. Wah! This thread is so long long and I am here. You both yakked so much like 2 happy girls.

      So finally SK posted this topic which is relevant to almost all the bloggers here. We all have different DNA so our brains and blogging styles would be gila differently. I guess we only continue to read those whom we could connect with their frequency well otherwise we would just disappear. Some bloggers are retardeds like that Chi Sin Phor from Australia who stalked & hounded Small Kucing's blog like a contagious parasite. So scary la!

    16. I think my interests to read SK's blog postings have come a long way where my comments were short and lesser in the past. They are fossils now. These days I have jumped into the spamming wagon like a blog addict to get my daily fix. So dashyat la me.

      I always said that I admired Thambee's blogging styles! His hardwork inspired me to pay attention to his blogging cos I am self-voted as the laziest blogger on earth. We are big contrasts but being opposites definitely connected us well like magnets.

      Delete
    17. aiyoh really a long long long thread lah, reading is okay but want to reply to the comments is a bit challenging already, haha!! errr, generally everyone has their own style and own likes lah, if everyone the same style then this blogsphere will be super dry and boring lah.. of course we love to see a myriad of different blogging style and stories right?? so, just blog as you like and i am sure everyone does have their own fans.. :)

      and i am very happy that readers drop by to comment and reply to comments as if they are in a chatroom.. it feels more interactive right with someone commenting in the same thread.. yalah, sometimes i also feel paiseh to comment in the same thread in other people's blog too.. and somemore comment also need to be appropriate lah, it's the same like talking and we have to process first.. worse still, sometimes the plain words may cause misunderstanding because we cannot see the expression and hear the tones..

      very true, blogging is actually not easy already lah.. and non-bloggers always thought that bloggers are wasting time doing something stupid, but then hey, don't ever judge people on what they like to do right?? the globe is round, we can also always judge them on things they do, haha!! :D

      okay okay, i don't know what i am typing actually.. haha!! anyway, just to thank everyone for your support to always no feel tired to leave a comment over here.. :)

      Delete
    18. Yah, at the beginning I was so scared to write long long comment, scared later people complaining I spamming their mail....so normally my comment very short....as a straight person like me, super scared "mou la la de zui yan" lo!!!

      I nearly kena sue before last time...the movie one....make me so scared to write it...now must think triple before posting....

      Delete
    19. hahaha, everyone is welcome to comment or even spam, we are all very friendly people and won't bite!! haha.. i actually like to see everyone coming back to check the replies and further comment, it make this commenting platform feels more like a chatroom or forum huh?? haha~~ :)

      Delete
    20. Yah lo, thought we brought this topic up before, this's like morning "cha chan sat" for us to chit chatting, right....???

      Delete
    21. Ya lor that mmg chi sin por..tarak come since beginning this month. Touch wood. anyway will continue leave moderate comments on la

      You are not the laziest la. At least when you post, Anay, your post are well thought of and precise leh. No spelling error nor do you mince your words.

      LOL @SK long reply. ya wor...wanna reply also have to think how to reply.

      Agree with Xiao Ying la. Sometimes you tarak comment pasal orang tu, but orang tu pulak come pijak your tail pulak. I think spamming long comment is okay la as long as relevant.

      Delete
    22. yeah, not only morning lah, but you can drop by anytime you like.. afternoon, evening and late night also can.. :D

      yeah, i think Anay is not lazy lah, just that he is busy.. but whenever he has a post, the post is always so well written.. to him, it's not about the quantity but the quality of the post..

    2. Me also didn't write long long stories, worries it might bored off readers... kakaka...

      Delete
    3. But must write a bit longer la coz too short also I dont know what to comment leh. :p

      Delete
    4. that's why, blogging is never easy.. write too long and people get impatient to read on, write too short and people think the post is too dry and no substance.. so everything really can be a challenge :p

      Delete
    5. For me......I'm that kind of person very lazy to read super long post...I think short short one straight to the point easy for readers to recall back!!! =]

      Delete
    6. Okay..give u a challenge...each post must have at least 100 words can ah? LOL

      Delete
    7. i am also quite impatient when it comes to long post that has a lot of words and photos, and need to scroll many times.. most of the time, i'll just give up half way, hahaha!!

      eih, sometimes making a post short and sweet is even more challenging than having a long winded one leh.. agree?? :p

      Delete
    8. Same here....sometimes I always wonder how long it takes for the blogger to write 3D2N travelogue in a post......paiseh to say....I always very patient to finish word by word...but if that long argh...I only go through pictures...coz by even just scroll the pictures also never came to the end....(...which is now I fix myself don't put more than 30 pictures in a post...)

      Delete
    9. my travelogue always very short i supposed, cos i will normally cramp one day into one post and not blog by the places i went.. and i think i put like an average of 15 photos to most.. too many photos sure the loading will be slow.. well, i have seen people posted like 30 - 50 photos in one post, oh mine, those are really killing.. and please, don't post a few photos of the same place or activities or food, then surely can reduce by 50%, haha!!

      Delete
    10. Hahaha, yah lo, I think STP complain about I've too many pictures in a post and it takes very long to load, so now reduce a bit and if everyday has a short post is okay la, wouldn't be that time consuming!!! =]

      Delete
    11. hahaha, once in a while show more photos is okay lah, because some post need to show a lot of photos mah, like events you go or especially travelogue, but then filter a bit and don't hantam everything lah..

      BTW, i think your blog is loading so slow may not be the photos, but i notice you have too many widgets on your sidebars already, i think those are making the loading very slow.. just my two cents lah, if not necessary, keep it simple lah, especially those with real time updates and monitoring, sure takes up a lot of resources.. :)

      Delete
    12. Thanks for your advice ya!!! I've take down some already, maybe should load faster now!!! =]

  3. Good morning SK and everyone.

    Fuiyoh...what are you going to do for your 10th blog anniversary?

    Replies
    1. Your simple blog actually not very simple also leh.

      Have to think of four letters title then have to put in Volume and issue like in magazine

      Delete
    2. my only "feedback" for the title is that only chinese words there. A bit hard for banana like me to korek back your old post when wanna refer. Like that day when talk about jamban. Wanna korek back that post where the comments hit over 200 before noon to show Princess Ribbon, I cannot find coz all in chinese writing

      Delete
    3. He calls his blog simple?
      If his blog is simple, then mine can go to the jamban liao..

      Delete
    4. Thank you for ringing a bell. I have always wanted to ask.
      His post can write in both chinese and english.. But why the title only write in chinese leh? I susah leh, coz I banana, dunno how to read..

      Meow, you are banana lei ga? Biar betul..
      You know why? Coz a few times when you post in chinese leh, the name of the restaurant or something.. Then in FB also I macam pernah see you tulis in mandarin, also when you were writing about restaurant, food and all..

      Delete
    5. aiya...my chinese" i google mah. Got thing call Google translator. LOL. So agak agak lor.

      Delete
    6. 10th year?? aiyoh, that's still so far away, haven't even finished the 8th year mah.. dunno if i will still be blogging by then, haha!!

      actually i started my blog in chinese only, later on in year 2008 i remember, only i added english to let more people read my blog.. so chinese is always the more priority lah, as you can see, i always put the chinese before the english.. and as for the title, it has all the while been like that since day 1, so i am not changing that also.. and i explained already lah, only chinese can have the fixed length but not english, i want to see my list of posts appear nicely and neatly aligned mah.. haha!!

      Delete
    7. Otherwise, SK can easily write the title in English on the post itself. This will help people like us to understand straight away what you are going to blog about.

      Delete
    8. hmmm, isn't it more interesting to have no clue at all what i am writing about, and only to find out after reading the content of the post?? hahaha.. well, thanks for the suggestion, i shall consider doing that.. :)

      Delete
    9. not so faraway leh....can start planning now leh

      No clue how to search back back post leh

      Delete
    10. still two more years lah, and two years in blogging actually is not a short time, because there is a lot of effort you need to put in if you are regularly updating your blog.. i do not dare to see so far yet, haha!! :D

      Delete
  4. Morning!!! Morning!!! Happy Monday!!! My blog start from 2008, in the beginning it's just simple 平台 to express my unsaid words and always full of emotions post, but now is getting different and growing better, everyone has their own style......

    ReplyDelete

    1. Morning Xiao Ying.

      Yeah everyone have own style. You also write dual language. so hardworking la you

      Delete
    2. yeah, i guess we all improved and gain experience as we blog, and i am pretty sure we all are now blogging better than what we used to be, haha~~ :)

      Delete
    3. Back to the post, I was so busy today, no time to comment so just leave a footprint in the morning only!!!

      Yah, I realized the running number but just don't understand how it works only....and you put volume # and issue #....it do looks like those magazine weekly issue like very professional lo...

      Delete
    4. I like the slideshow thing, that's one time I want to curi to use that style as you already share it public the "useful link" mah.....but scared people said I copy your style, then just forget about it lo....>.<!!!

      Delete
    5. Talking about two languages...at the beginning I felt so tired about it, because people who write in a language can finish a post within an hour but for me I need two three hours (which explain I'm not lazy and procrastinate la...is it's truly time consuming, I think get what I mean lo)

      Delete
    6. Nobody's life is boring le, just depends on how you look at it, must be has something interesting happened in a day, go through carefully and deeply at night then you're gradually find out the funnest of the day!!! =]

      Delete
    7. Umm....I'm think I didn't change my layout for years...hahaha....that one got to see when I got the mood to do it....

      This reminds me about your Christmas theme....everyone can talk so long about the four leaves clover....hahaha!!! Right??? Or....I'm the only one remember about it only???

      Delete
    8. Things to add on, you said before your post must be "up" on time start with number "8"....8:08, 8:18, 8:28.....and etc....

      And two or three posts per week....no post on weekend...hehe!!!

      Delete
    9. yes, I realise those auspicious times too. And sometimes I actually do that too. It's considered good feng shui.

      Delete
    10. haha, the running number is the number of post i have lah.. so #1861 means this is my 1861th post.. and volume means the year, issue means the month.. i personally think this is nice to record the ongoing of my blogging.. :)

      小影, you are free to use all those scripts that i have published, if i've published that means i am sharing and welcome everyone to use lah (actually wanted so much also)..

      and you are right, writing two languages is not like another 15 minutes extra, it actually may double up the time to translate and also not to directly translate but more to telling the same story in another language.. sometimes i start with the chinese then english, sometimes english first then chinese.. it's actually a rewrite instead of direct translation..

      hahaha!! thanks for that point about the auspicious time, i actually included this point earlier, but because the post is too long so i removed it and did not publish.. yes, i write my posts in advanced and let them scheduled to be published at those timing, haha!! and of course, not posts during weekend or holidays lah, cos the readership is rather low.. :)

      Delete
    11. Just checked mine, I've 1403 posts....hehe!!!

      Okay, since you give the "green light" so I might try to use it in my future posts ya!!!

      Don't know you realized or not, some words are hard to translate...sometimes have to twist a bit to talk about it!!!

      Maybe you can try to use the picture slideshow style to write the points form post, then you can write more than 4 points lo...can?

      Delete
    12. you are most welcome to use those scripts, and i will actually feel proud if anyone uses that lah.. 開心都來不及!! and wish you all the best luck ah, because many tried and find it not easy, but there are also a lot who have successfully got that up..

      and yeah, sometimes cannot just directly translate lah, have to write the idea only in another twist.. that's why i say, not directly easy writing in two languages :)

      Delete
    13. Out of sudden, I wonder how long it takes for you to write that three language post??? The one with Cantonese, English and Malay!

      Delete
    14. aiyoh, i also forgotten already, and even cannot remember which post i wrote in three languages, haha!! but i think at least an hour lah..

      Delete
  5. Hello! Long time no see :) Yes I notice you have 4-letter chinese word title for every post, how come you don't have the same for English? That's not fair!! :P

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. haha, my blog is actually born Chinese lah, and the title has been only in Chinese since day 1.. i only added the English portion somewhere in 2008.. never mind lah, just read the contents and learn some Chinese from the title, haha!! :D

      Delete
  6. You don't always reply to our insane number of comments anymore! LOL

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. haiyoh, replying to comments is really a challenging task lah.. i always try my best to do that, but sometimes time really doesn't allow that.. also sometimes lazy and too overwhelmed with too many comments, haha~~ :D

      Delete
    2. Yes, we need time to reply to comments. Sometime I will reply to comments when I feel it's necessary. Otherwise, I just keep quiet.

      Delete
    3. yeah, sometimes i have to spend like an hour or more to reply to all the comments.. it's really quite challenging, because my replies are always not just short one but probably longer than the comments by my readers and could even be longer than my own post!! haha..

      Delete
    4. runs and hides...me lazy cat too. simpan many many comments then reply satu kali. Kena Mr G blocked me twice for "spamming" comments in my own blog LOL

      Delete
    5. i don't think it's a good idea to simpan simpan and reply satu kali lah, that would take you a lot of time, haha!! so now, i would rather do it little by little, at least not so tiring leh..

I should buy you the huge Sammi Velooo's Indian Flower Garlands and hang around your neck until the jasmine touches the floor. Put you on the big decorated elephant and parade around Kuala Lumpur to show off our SK Thambee!

    I am sure your relatives in the slumdog Chennai village would rejoice with all day of dances and music besides eating the cheesy mutton curry with chapati to celebrate the auspicious occasion of your BLOG's 8th Anniversary!! All the Mumbai's Bollywood stars would be invited and it would be declared a public holiday in India.



    Yaaawnn.... stretching arms!


    Yawn......oh dear...phiak my head!


    I just woke up from a sweet dream of SK.

    1. 1. Yes I know you have running numbers in your blog postings like a factory rolling out the cars from production lines. I would say that you are a blog perfectionist and systematic freak who tolerates no nonsense!

      I am just opposite - lazy and messy blogger! Muahahaha

      Delete
    2. 2. You are the only blogger in the world who blogs in English and Cantonese! I bet there's no one else in this wide universe! Perhaps I should ask The Guinness Book of World Records to put you inside their records for your amazing feat! You will become famous overnight and put Malaysia in the world map of fantastic bloggers. Very soon Obama and Rosmamah would invite you to tea just to shake hands with my Thambee!!! You would wear the Jalur Gemilang suit with your karipap hair-do and pose at Dataran Putrajaya! Walau-Eh!

    3. 3. Short and sweet posts yet interesting are not easy to write! You are smart to be cautious that when the fish stales, it would smell bad. Many bloggers are not aware of this and that their blog posts could send readers to sleep right away with their mundane styled rantings over same topics over and over until it's so difficult to leave honest comments. I am also worried that I could fall back to my Grandma blogging styles again someday and get pelted with rotten eggs!

      Delete
    4. 4. I think you are very innovative and creative when it comes to blog layouts!! You change your blog styles more often than you change your under wears!!! Wakakakaka
      I mean you would change your blog layouts more often than you would buy a new set of STRUCTURE under wears! That means Anay wears the same underwear for a year until mice holes appeared. Wakakakaka

      Well, all readers like to see new surprises and fresh looks in your blogs always. I must start using the free templates!! So easy yet I am so lazy again.

    5. 5. This is clearly what I have noticed... You were a carefree bachelor when you started blogging in the year 2006. Today you have become a single parent and doting daddy to Fing Fing! So you need to add a new family member and find a mommy for Fing Fing to make a complete and happy family! There are so many eligible and pretty bloggers in your blog circles from KL to Sibu. Why are you still so fussy???

    6. haiyoh, it's the 8th year but yet coming to the full 8 years that i need to celebrate the anniversary lah.. next month baru 8th anniversary, so you still have one month to prepare all the things you mentioned you will buy and do for me~~ :D

      #1 - yeah, you are right, sometimes i do think i am a bit over and want to make everything perfect.. so does give myself pressure too..

      #2 - haha, are you sure i am the only one?? or maybe just in your world lah.. i am sure there are many others who blogged in both Cantonese and English.. and thanks for the invitation, shall i just accept Obama's but decline Rosmamah's?? muahahaha~~

      #3 - yeah, that is why i try to think of different topics to write.. at least if not for the readers but for myself not to feel bored writing the same mundane topic repeatedly.. and you are so true, i sometimes run out of idea to comment on some blogs because to me, the bloggers are writing the same story again and again, though they might not think the same way as their readers do..

      #4 - hahaha, maybe that's true!! i changed my layout on a monthly basis but i don't buy new underwear on a monthly basis!! i think my underwear can last me for a year lah, that's why i only buy them during CNY, haha!! yalah, the templates come as free and it's not difficult to change - the only problem is whether you want to do it or not..

      #5 - hmmm, and you can also see how i have evolved from my style and also the way i tell stories?? see deeper and not superficial like you have observed dei~~

      wow!! thank you for this very detailed comments, i like this so much!! you are the first who read and care to analyze~~ :)

      Delete
    7. yes, I really envy TM who really comments wholeheartedly. Of course, there are others too. SK is one of them too.

      Delete
    8. #2 Pretty sure you're the only one la...that's a lot dual language bloggers out there...but mostly use google translate...so that one doesn't count as write in two language lo!!!

    9. May I add #6 to TM's comments?
      6) SK blogs in small letters. No capital letters.
      Even the comments he replys in his own blog and other people's blog also all use small letters.
      SK too lazy to press the Shift button ahh?

      Delete
    10. yeah, TM always read every word of my post and sometimes he will message me to tell me the grammar and typo mistakes i have made, how detail a person he is right?? :)

      errr, hahaha!! i think i am not the only one, at least there will still be a couple of them that exist in this world that we have not known about.. ah, talking about google translation, errr, that one really sucks lah, i won't be using that to do a post translation :p

      haha, yalah, lazy to go and press the shift key lah, i think everyone understands right?? as long as i don't type in ALL CAPS then it's fine lah.. those who type in all caps sound so like scolding people!! haha xD

      Delete
    11. Wow, he's so sweet lo!!! I always wish to have someone tell me about what mistakes I've done lo!!!

      I only use the google translate for single words only, I know if use google translate to fully translate the whole sentence then the whole meaning will be kena twist and for those who don't understand mandarin, they won't understand what it said!!!

      Delete
    12. wow...sk says coming soon la. You better think what and how to celebrate for SK .

      #2. Xiao Ying blog in dual language leh

    13. 小影: when i read your post, i actually read the English one, when i do not understand what you are trying to say, then i will read the Chinese one.. so, that's the benefit of knowing more languages, haha.. and never mind those mistakes lah, 不傷大雅 mah.. of your cannot use google translate to translate the whole thing, if not you will be posting 火星文 already, haha!!

      Meow: haha, blog anniversary only mah, just aje aje do something on the blog will do lah.. and no worries, i will not ask you to present me with a new PC, my shift key still working fine lah, because i seldom use it, haha~~ :D

    2. Haha yea! I wonder too! I came to know about it through friends in FB and Instagram, then slowly I learn that there're many 'keep calm and ...'! All using the same fonts, and with plain color background.
      But who is the actual originator? I have no idea, may be you can Google for it then let me know? :p

  13. Hihi, I am back! ;)

    Ok, interesting post today! Now we know a bit more about your blog already!

    1. Yep, noticed this long time ago! You are such a perfectionist lo! You fix the post title to 4 words so that all lines are neat in the archive! Wow, I thought only girls are that 细心 and 讲究 but looks like you are one of the very few guy I know who is like that =) Well, not a bad thing at all, at least you will need to scratch your head a bit everytime writing a new post cause just 4 words are kinda hard sometimes... Can take this chance to think and stimulate your brain, haha! Or may be to you is 'sap sap sui' only? :p

    Opps, as for the running number you mentioned, now only I realise! Hehe, paiseh paiseh :p

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 2. Yep, also notice this long time ago! Short and straight to the point! I like! At least don't have to read a very long post ma! Hehe, sometimes short and sweet is the trend.
      In fact, most of your posts consist of one photo only, with about 20 lines of words la, I can see this consistent trend of yours.
      Of course when you're writing travelogues, we can see those slideshow and click-through album all the time ;) Also a good way to entertain your readers, unlike the conventional photo-words-photo-words (like mine, haha xD), quite boring I know :p

      Oh ya, must give you a big LIKE for every dual language post! I never thought it's easy!! Ask me to write dual language like you everytime, I'll ask to surrender, LOL! It's very time consuming, especially if you have photos to share! That's why I prefer to blog in English, fast and save time! Of course, got to admit that blogging in Mandarin can bring different feel to our blog, something which English cannot replace ;)
      I just wish I'll have the mojo and time to blog in both languages as often as possible, as I realise many of my readers blog in Mandarin ;)
      By the way, you forgot to mention that for once you blogged in 3 languages!! English, Malay and Mandarin!

      Erm actually not really Mandarin, you blog in Mandarin-Cantonese! This one lagi susah! Though I study Chinese and I know Cantonese, I don't know so many Cantonese wordings like you did! Really hats off to you la! ^^

      Delete
    2. 3. Erm not really la! Your posts are entertaining, not boring la! At least I can see you blog quite a wide range of topics.

      4. I know you change banner regularly but I din't realise it's a monthly basis! LOL guess I am really not that observant huh? :p
      Yea, everyone loves a bit of new changes right? If possible I also wanna change my blog template and banner regularly too! Too bad I am not that creative and I don't have that time... But I'll make sure my blog banner and template won't stay the same for a year la! At least change the layout a little bit, or the color, better than none ma! :p

      Delete
    3. And you said it's the 8th year of you blogging at SK0617! Wow, honestly 8 years is not too long but not too short too!
      This coming October will be the 6th year of me blogging, never thought I can make it this far, haha xD

      Guess blogging is really a good thing to do, at least something we are passionate about right? Not only can we 'own' a space, share whatever we like, we get to know so many fabulous readers and friends! And not to forget, we widen our horizon and knowledge through reading people's blog ;)

      So, yea, keep calm and blog on!

    4. great, Hayley can comment beautifully too. I love the way some commenters wrote. Their comments made me smile sometimes. We all love to see comments regarding our posts. Yes, keep it up, everyone!

      Delete
    5. oh, yeah, agree with Wenn that Hayley comment so thoroughly according to each of the points!! so this proved that she reads my post and comment seriously, hahaha!!

      #1 - yes, i think i am somehow a perfectionist lah, i would want my things to look nice and special.. i set high standards for myself lah, good and bad also lah actually.. good is that i can improve, bad is that sometimes creating unnecessary pressure to myself lor..

      #2 - actually i think my post are still a bit long lah, i actually try to write it shorter but then every time when i start writing, i tend to write longer, haha, so long winded huh?? but the thing is, i still allow my readers to read my post without the need to keep scrolling, haha, this one i must admit i did it well.. ah, you remember that 3 language post i did one day huh?? errr, that was just for fun lah.. i think 2 language already is killing me, adding another one is super mission impossible to me already!! i am not going to take up the challenge, hehe~~

      #3 - that is why i try not to repeat the same topics, if readers not bored i also bored lah, right?? :D

      #4 - haha, now you know i change the layout on a monthly basis, yes, just like the monthly magazine has a new cover every month.. haha, and i think i am one of the blogger who changes the layout most frequently huh?? because i feel bored seeing the same thing everyday leh, that's why i told myself to change :D

      Delete
  14. I realize all that you mentioned. The very unique way of SK's blog. The date, the running number, the 4 letter words, and the two languages posts. Changing template and layout every month, all these show that SK is very perfectionist.

    ReplyDelete

    1. hmmm, sometimes have to be moderate lah, don't expect the photos to tell everything.. because different people will see the photos differently and think differently.. sorry ah, but i always find it funny that people like to use "let the picture tell the story" or "picture says a thousand words" lah, that is an excuse to me.. i am sure there is just one and only one thing you want to tell using that photo.. and i do think it's good to actually give a caption or short description to each photo.. it makes thing clear and gives a direction to the readers..

      Delete
    2. Ok noted, actually I feel a bit pai seh sometimes when readers of my blog ask me what my photo is about, sometimes I am lazy and sometimes I am rushing off that's why never put caption or description to my photos :P

    3. haha, yalah, at least write something to explain the photos mah.. don't be lazy lah, if rush then might as well don't publish an incomplete post right?? hahaha, this shows i am perfectionist!! :)
