my life in japan
about my blog ...
this blog was started on Jan 21st 2005. although blogging has already been popular for quite sometime, i didn't catch the fad of keeping a blog, as, well, i have better things to do such as meeting frens, hanging out, playing games (lol) etc.
i must say i was first inspired by tsutsen and fangyi, both like me are in japan now, and both like me (but for a longer time) are keeping blogs. initially i started this blog mainly to keep a log of all things interesting (and uninteresting) that i have done in japan, so that i can look back few years down the road and laugh. also of course, as i may have mentioned, it is also an avenue to tell my family and friends how i have been doing, what i am busy with etc. no need to mention the same things over and over again to friends who may ask ;p
now, i am using my blog as my bulletin as well... whenever i come across anything interesting, i will try to post in up in my blog. hopefully, my readers, who are mainly my family and friends, will find them interesting as well. if not, just humour me will you?
as such, i dun think, in any time soon, my blog will grow to become like xiaxue's or kenny sia's, since they usually write for their audience (in xiaxue's case, against her audience ;p), neither will it be like mr brown's, since he writes mostly about singapore stuff... my blog is pretty narrow, for friends, i hope you find it interesting to know about my life here, and for visitors, i hope the content here interests you in one way or another.
