The Blog's New Clothes

As part of my comeback attempt, I felt it was necessary for some changes to the layout of this blog to mark my return to blogging. What's a comeback without a new look, no? With the release of Blogger's new Template Designer (still in Blogger Draft), this has been made much easier compared to previous times.

Gone are the days I've to trawl the world wide web to look for decent blog designs and suitable templates. After finding what I like, I've to tweak the codes to suit my blog. It was a nightmare, really! The old boring Blogger template designs are now ancient history. I definitely find it easier to manage the blog now with the newly introduced features. Blogger should have worked on them much sooner but better late than never, no?

Of Friends And Acquaintances

Not many of us are able to tell the difference between a friend and an acquaintance. Many times, they are thought to be the very same thing. The truth is, they are not. In many cases, people mistaken colleagues whom they see and work with everyday as their friends. Some may in the process become your friends but the rest are in fact just mere acquaintances.

Maybe the fine line between friends and acquaintances were blurred even further with the growing popularity of social networking sites like Friendster and Facebook. The term 'friend' is used to refer to anyone you add on these sites when in fact they could very well be a member of your family, a business associate, a student, a mentor or anyone else you may not necessarily regard as a friend.

The Comeback Kid

Having not blogged for such a long time, it can be quite a task to get back the momentum and inspiration. I have lost count how many times I've tried to resuscitate this blog to no avail. This attempt may end up with the very same outcome.

There are many reasons why I didn't bother to blog for so long. The lack of time was a major factor and still is. One of the main reasons I started blogging in 2005 was to share with others what I knew (as if that is worth knowing). It was also a means to connect with friends and update them with happenings in my life (as if that is worth knowing either). It also proved to be an outlet for me to pour my emotions out rather than keeping it all within.

The Teluk Ketapang Story Part 11: The After Party

To celebrate our success in finally finding Teluk Ketapang (and staying alive to tell the tale), we had a small gathering the following week.

It was also a way to thank our friends who were instrumental in getting us back in one piece. From that one incident, we were reminded of how much we mattered to each other.

So, has the issue cooled down enough for our next adventure? ;)
