Spring is here!

Dang, don't know why i haven't updated my blog in such a long time. Yeah, it's been busy at work, but it's no excuse - probably I don't know what's to write after coming back from very different cities in the far east. Been in the new team, and the same story applies - politics, meetings, lack of budget/training, yadda yadda yadda... but good thing is that I'm learning things quickly which is the only cool thing i guess (gosh, i do need a better oscilloscope tho; hate to beg from other teams to borrow their higher bandwidth ones). Oh, also went to Niagra Falls the past weekend with the family - and it was cool... trees surrounded by ice since the ice pellets were forming around the branches due to the mist created by the Falls making it a very rare phenomenon. People were surrounding the trees pointing and taking pics, while children took off icicles from signposts and used them as lightsabers, and tourists gathered in awe talking pictures and having a good time. It was a good time and great to feel some human interaction in this otherwise cold fluctuating winter. Another thing is that I've made up my mind to pick up my guitar once more; time flies and before one know it - a long time have passed. But if I learn something that I like, then maybe several yrs down the road - i'll learn something^. Also made a pact with a friend from Shanghai where she's picking up piano at a mature age, and myself picking up guitar in a similar case; and who knows? Maybe sometime, someday; we'll join together for a chorus... ha ha, life's unexpected and interesting....

I missed the gorgeous view at the Niagara Fall and the wonderful time spent with family and friends. How come your Easter long weekend is in May? I thought Easter is coming up in a week. Drop me an email :)

Lovely pictures. Have never been to the US, but looks like winter at the falls is a fabulous photo opportunity.

Hi, came here from Ajeya's blog.

Beautiful pictures ! Never seen the Niagara Falls. Looks amazing. Never expected it to be so beautiful in winters.

I see you all are pretty veterans in the field of blogging.

Hmmm trying to form a band ? ;)

@ Ajeya: Thanks, it was the first time that I had been to Niagra in Winter as well.

@ WinWin: yeah.... despite not being able to ski that day since i was at Niagra, it was good to spend time with the family and see some gd scenery. Lemme fire u a note soon :)

@ Mridula: Thx for dropping by... Yes it is! There's two falls, Niagra to the Canadian side; and Fallsview to the US... both interconnected at the same junction and looks pretty nice.

@ Cuckoo: Thanks for the comment! Yeah, the scenery was very beautiful. Ha ha, just trying to learn some chords but nowhere near forming a band yet ;)
