TGH Photography and Hpility SG

I have two announcements to make, first and foremost, I would like to introduce my photography business logo, designed by hatchdesign on Fiverr. Getting a photography logo designed for Tan Geng Hui Photography and ready for my photography portfolio website at www.tghphotography.com , it took me a bit of time to get it sorted out, find a designer to produce the logo based on my expectations and the style that I wanted it.

I am happy and relieved at the same time, carrying a very heavy load and responsibilities on my shoulders alone, is no mean feat. The journey to setting up and running your own small photography business is a very fulfilling yet very tiring journey till date.

Do visit my photography portfolio website at www.tghphotography.com and I do appreciate your support to help Pass-It-On and spread the word for my photography business!

The second announcement is my partnership with Hpility SG, founded by Hong Peng. Hpility SG is a digital blog-portal that covers a variety of interests from lifestyle, travel, food, gadgets and entertainment. We had a good discussion on this partnership between Tan Geng Hui Photography and Hpility SG, we are currently building up the foundations, procedures and networks for our partnership to grow and expand further down the road.

I am looking forward to more interesting and exciting things with them, so do keep a lookout for more news and announcements along the way on Hpility SG and my various social media platforms!

Today is the 4th May, a date that all Star Wars fans know in their hearts.

May The 4th Be With You, Always!

Follow me on the N.E.mation! 11 Top 10 Production Phase!

This is the 11th season of N.E.mation!, a competition for youths to express their notions on Total Defence through animation. I am happy to be involved again with this competition, this is my 6th year that I am involved in (since N.E.mation! 6) and this year is going to be a bit more special for me because I am able to take on the role of ambassador (my first time!) for five of the Top 10 teams that are participating and competing in the final round of this competition.

The theme for N.E.mation! 11 is “Together We Keep Singapore Strong” and the production period had commenced last week on the 21st November 2016, lasting till Friday 9th December 2016. I was supposed to start last week following, covering, photographing and writing on the five teams that I am ambassador for, however, due to urgent family matters, I was away for the whole week and I could only start on the second week of their production period.

I visited the N.E.mation! 11 Top 10 production phase location yesterday on Tuesday 29th November. I finally got the chance to meet the participants of the five teams that I am ambassador for. They were a great bunch of youths with lots of enthusiasm and energy to share about their progress on their animation production, the ideas and stories behind them.

Which of the five teams from N.E.mation! 11 Top 10 teams am I the ambassador for?

They are

I will be introducing each of the five teams in an individual article in my next few article posts. Besides that, I would also be sharing some updates on their progress (via my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook Page) when I visit them again later this week and next week.

Meanwhile, do also follow N.E.mation! website, Facebook Page, TwitterInstagram and YouTube social media accounts too!

Alright folks! Follow me! On my journey and adventure, through my eyes and heart, sharing photographs and coverage of N.E.mation! 11 Top 10 Production Phase!

There are a few art installations that I really like a lot and I would recommend these few art installations at i Light Marina Bay for you all to visit! One of them is art installation B9 titled “Cloud”, with the Marina Bay and Raffles Place CBD skyline in her background, this makes an excellent photograph together with the art installation Cloud. During the evening, when the sun sets and the blue hour emerges, the art installation Cloud with the beautiful landscape background is one that dazzles visitors and photographers to wait for that moment!

Introducing WildJunket Magazine

Travel and outdoor adventure has always have been a part of me, something deep inside me, cultivated by National Geographic Magazine, rooted and grown by my Scouting days with my alumni mata, Gan Eng Seng Dragon Scout Group, with many outdoor activities and outdoor adventure. Bitten by the travel bug too, I once dreamt of being a National Geographic Photojournalist!

While I confessed that my outdoor adventures and travel didn’t reach the numbers and destinations that I would love to, there’s still some nice & exciting outdoor adventures and travels that I embarked since my Scouting days till  today. Travel magazines was once a favourite of mine and I used to buy and read them regularly, always mesmerised and dreaming of the various destinations and adventures that they went/been to.

In an era of social media expansion, via the various social media channels and networks, I got to know more travel folks, bloggers, writers, they have really awesome adventures and travel experiences. Among those I knew personally is Nellie Huang, a fellow Singaporean, who owns this travel website Wild Junket, who has a great following, personality and reputation among the travel community in the world. When Nellie launched her brand new E-Magazine on outdoor adventure and travel, I requested Nellie for a copy of her 1st E-Magazine WildJunket to do a review and I was impressed by WildJunket.

I was more motivated and energised again, to seek out more outdoor adventure and travel, truly inspiring and heartwarming, I can feel it from reading the adventure stories and their photographs, encouraging me to travel light and travel far – traveling beyond  the conventional tourism trail, to seek out extraordinary experiences while protecting the environment.

Traveling forward ahead, I would like to be and hope to be featured one day inside her WildJunket E-Magazine in any of her editorial departments, maybe as a Travel Guide or Photo Essay ! 

Without a doubt, WildJunket E-Magazine is definitely worth your consideration to pay and subscribe to, and Nellie’s extensive travel website and blog is definitely the best testimonial.

Volunteering & Blogging @ TweetMeetSG 2011

Volunteering and helping out at non-profit organisations and charitites, I had done it for quite a number of years since my scouting days with Dragon Scout Group. Therefore, when I was invited by Claudia & Kris of Dice Studio and Infocomm Accessibility Centre (IAC) to be part of their TweetMeetSG event, helping out as a volunteer and social media enthusiast/blogger concurrently, I took it up without hesitation, glad to help out in whatever way possible, paying it forward to the community and helping people.

I was paired up with my great blogger friend, the legendary Keropokman, to visit a friend somewhere in Singapore, armed with a donated NetBook and Microsoft Software. We headed towards our friend’s home somewhere in Singapore on a Saturday morning, helping him to setup his NetBook, guiding him along to connect himself with/to the world of internet and social media, with Windows Live, Facebook and Skype. After a hearty breakfast in a neighbourhood hawker centre, Keropokman and myself were ready to move out for our volunteering expedition!

We were welcomed by our friendly and heartwarming friend, whom we slowly break the ice, interacted and chatted away. Keropokman and myself took turns to do the setup, guiding him through the various social media channels, what to do and how to move around them, points and tips to look out for. Our friend was happily taking the whole setup through and we did not rush him, taking it slowly and patiently, one small step at a time. During this sharing session, while one of us was helping and guiding our friend through the setup, the other teammate would be doing live social media updates via Instagram and Twitter, bringing live updates to the Nothing Less movement and broadcasting the TweetMeetSG movement, sharing with the social media community what this noble and wonderful event was all about.

Once the Facebook and Skype were setup, our friend tried conversing, interacting and chatting with friends from the social media community and our friendly folks from the IAC was there to chat with him too! Looking at his happy face, full of smile, happy to receive this small wonderful gift from IAC. We were very happy that we were able to make a difference to his life, helping him breach the gap between the social media/internet and himself, connecting him together and also his family, relatives and friends too!

What’s the TweetMeetSG all about? What’s Nothing Less all about? Check out my deep inner thoughts on NOTHING LESS to Help Them Reach Their Full Potential!
