    • Dear Michelle

      How are you? Thanks for your mail and thanks for your praise. I spendmy time in Shanghai for the past 9 months and back to Singapore once 3 months, so it’s difficult for me to upload any new pictures. Beside than that, as China government has blocked the wordpress.com, so it’s unable for me to write any blog during the business trip. Anyway, has upload some new pictures and hope you like them. Once again, thanks for your kind support and looking forward to hearing from you again.
