Happy New Year!

Perth 9th January 2012

Happy New Year everyone…

I know some of you have been eagerly waiting for me to restart the blog in this exciting new year. I was really enjoying my time of blogging as quite frankly it is quite something to write around 400 words daily for the blog on top of my daily work with KLD. But I enjoy doing it and the response and feedback I have received over the last year have been really nice and encouraging, so here we
go again for season 3! Please bear with me to get in the “groove” again, 🙂

So what do I have in store for 2012? Well first of all I would like to add another dimension to my blog. Besides Light Watch which I will continue this season as well, I am planning to introduce a section called Light & Learn. This will be a more  educational part, which as and when relevant will be included as part of the blog. I anticipate that I will have subjects that sometimes may need some technical background and will use that to illustrate that hopefully in simple ways so we have also some lighting theory popping up once in a while as part of the blog. I do not expect that to be a daily affair but, maybe once a week for starters. Let’s see how we go! Of course if you have any suggestions or subjects you would like me to touch or elaborate on please let me know. It would be nice if we could make the blog a bit more inter active! Don’t be shy, no question is stupid, really. It’s always easy when you know right? Also I don’t know everything so your questions or the subjects I come across, may trigger me to do some further research…

Last but not least the book is rolling from the printers this Wednesday (finally!!!) so I will start sending them out to those who have ordered next week when I am back in Singapore. I am enjoying a bit of Australian summer before returning to hot and sweaty Singapore. I hope you all had a wonderful break wherever in the world and are ready to take on this exciting year with me! With all my best wishes for the new year!

Light Watch 3-1:
I have to show some of the new year firework pictures from around the world. It remains a magical sight. Interestingly it seems like all the world landmarks are nowadays the centre of the fireworks displays, reinforcing the tourist images that each country uses to promote itself. See if you can spot the capitals from around the world.
