I read to pass time and for self-learning, tends to be either fiction stories, comics, or I.T.-related stuff. I used to visit the library regularly after secondary school to scout for and borrow books. Nowadays it has become more of reading blogs and news around the internet using feed aggregators.

When I was in secondary school, I found out that the library near my house was conducting basic courses on web design. My mum was supportive and allowed me to attend. From there, my interest grew and it eventually became a hobby. I have made many interesting designs for my website since then, and it has more or less settled to about once in two-three years due to study commitments.

I started to like photography after my parents showed me old photos of when I was younger, which made me decide that I have to learn to take good photos for future memory's sake. I have since collected gigabytes of photos which is stored and backed-up on several hard disks in case of failure. I also taught myself how to use Photoshop, because I like to make myself and other look good. I try to bring my camera with me all the time, in case I come across an opportunity/event that I will regret not taking photos of. My photos tend to be of portraits, group photos, and scenery.
Started playing/learning recreationally around 2005. It is one sport I can never get enough of, and I'm still learning.
I am relatively neat person, which means I keep stuff in collections. I happen to have large collections over time, which consists of stamps, stickers, phone cards, marbles, bus tickets from old times. Nowadays my collections are in digital format - (i.e.: music, desktop wallpapers (mostly scenery), funny videos, and electronic books (eBooks) of self-help/fiction/how-to's). I keep collections for memory's sake, and also as resources for future use.
I started playing computer games when I was around eight. You might think that it isn't a big deal, but computers then was considered to be a luxury. My dad's first computer was running on windows 3.1, and there were lots of interesting games my dad installed that nowadays would be regarded as mediocre. In secondary school, my friends and I would bring games on a floppy disk to play on the library's computers during recess break. Come to think of it, all the computers I have used so far I have either loaded or played games in, including those in work and the computers I used while serving national service.
Currently I'm with League of Legends (US/EU server) with some of my friends. We have to use a proxy server to play the game as they have blocked Asia because they have signed a contract with Garena to let them host it here. However, the skill level of players in the Garena server is not challenging, plus there are too few players, resulting in long wait times for a game. If you would like to play with me, please use this link to register.
Some computer games that I have played before. I have stopped playing most of them after completion or gotten bored. Some of the games are so old you can't find them anymore.
