Hi everyone! How’s everything going? 🙂 My Guest Post Recently, I have made a guest post on my friend Gerald Weber’s blog. It’s called 11 Sure-fire Ways to Annoy Your Readers (Please Don’t Do This) It talks about 11 sure-fire ways to annoy your readers. Read it so that you would know what to avoid to not annoy your readers. 🙂 Here is one of the points of the post: 1. Writing in gigantic blocks of text Big text blogs are easy to get lost in. They also strain eyes and make reading difficult. Because it’s hard to scan. Let… Read More "My Guest Post: 11 Sure-Fire Ways to Annoy Your Readers & What I’ve Been Doing"
Last month, my friends on facebook told me about the Blog4FT contest, a contest in which you blog about the Federal Territories of Malaysia. When I was about 6 years old, I had been to many places in Kuala Lumpur. Now I am 11 years old. So, I took advantage of this great opportunity to explore and rediscover Kuala Lumpur, the exciting capital of Malaysia, because I believed there would be deeper things for me to learn, and then, to share. I guessed this is the purpose of the contest too. So, I persuaded my mom to bring me on… Read More "My Most Enjoyable Holiday in KL in Dec 09"
Hi there. Last week, I was quite busy with the Once Upon a Twice online YouTube recitation contest. Once Upon a Twice is a creative Jabberwocky-like poem written by Denise Doyen. The book tells a story of a young and adventurous but naive mousling called Jam, who gone through a thrilling experience of life. So one day, I received an email from the author who got to know me through my action poems on Youtube. She invited me to join the contest, which I happily agreed. Because the poem was so creative, I was motivated to compose music and songs… Read More "My Poem Performance of “Once Upon a Twice”"
I love photography. And recently, I have become very interested in photography. I don’t have any professional cameras (or not I should’ve started earlier), but just a small cheap one (which doesn’t capture as well as other cameras do). One fine day, there was this beautiful purple sunset. It was spectacular! So, I decided to take a photo of it. I also took some other photos. Next, I enhanced the photos using Picasa (I only used it to make the pictures more contrast). Then, I started my flickr account (Please add me if you want 🙂 ) and uploaded the… Read More "Gloson Photography (24 Photos)"

Hooray! I won an Acer notebook computer (and a Kaspersky Internet Security pack for a year) from a blog ‘k’arnival in Malaysia sponsored by Kaspersky. I’ve always wanted a notebook computer. The computer I used before (some sort of a cross between a notebook and a desktop) was too inconvenient and the screen was too small (800px x 600px). That was why I badly wanted a notebook computer. Blog 411 If you’ve read my blog post yesterday, you would know that I was attending the blog 411 session at the blog carnival, where famous Malaysian bloggers share their tips and… Read More "I Won an Acer Notebook Computer from a Blog Carnival!"
Hey guys, I have been attending the blog ‘k’arnival today at Petaling Jaya in Malaysia today. It was a very exciting event. In fact, this is the very first blog carnival I have ever been to. Now, I want to share my experience on the Blog 411 session. Blog 411 I attended the “Blog 411” session in the carnival. There were quite a number of people there at the seminar. It’s when popular Malaysian bloggers, like Kenny Sia, Jason Goh, Niki Cheong, and other popular Malaysian bloggers speak and share their experiences and tips on blogging. Oh, and here is some (cool) pictures I took… Read More "Blog Seminar with Top Malaysian Bloggers"
Hi guys 🙂 If you’ve been around Gloson Blog for a while, you’d have realized that I rarely posted on April. I’m very sorry for not posting because I was really, really, really busy with my upcoming funny poetry book for kids. One day (13th April), as my mother flipped through the mock-up of my poetry book, she realized how plain the illustrations are (which I illustrated in December 2008), and how much it can be improved! For example, my poem mentioned cakes and milkshakes, but there are no cakes or milkshakes in the picture! Only the main character is… Read More "Why I Haven’t Been Posting Frequently in April"
If you have been around Gloson Blog for a week or two, you might notice that I haven’t posted in about 11 days (I usually post once in 3 days). I have a couple of reasons why I haven’t posted, and here they are. I’ve been remodeling Poetry Talents, my poetry website where I can post my poems. I gave it new look. I used wordpress (I used wordpress to make a website! Cool!). I won’t post my poems on Gloson Blog anymore, but I’ll post it on Poetry Talents instead. I joined the handball team in my school. We… Read More "Why I Haven’t Posted in a While"
