Introducing TGH Photography & Hpility SG

In an earlier post on my photography and travel site, www.photojournalist-tgh.tv, I introduced my photography portfolio website, my photography business logo and my partnership with Hpility SG. That post was more of a formal announcement, in this post that I am sharing here on my personal website, it’s more informal and personal, while introducing TGH Photography & Hpility SG.

First and foremost, let me introduce my photography portfolio website www.tghphotography.com, I wrote and shared about my new portfolio website in an earlier post. They were kind of a soft launch type instead of an official announcement launch. Building it up from scratch, setting up a small business, lots of hard work, sweat, tears, stress, pressure and some voices from the sides (from both good and bad angle).

When the earlier article was posted on my FB personal wall and FB page, I received congrats from a few friends and I really see it as a blessing, in lieu of the slow economy in the year 2017 and taking a big plunge into this journey. At times, there were also voices and opinions that weren’t as encouraging, critical and a few times, putting you down, looking down on you or maybe don’t want you to enter and become their competitor. I had to shut them down, away from my ears, heart, mind and brain.

The journey had never been smooth, always a roller coaster, some friends who are small business owners from other industries, fellow photographer friends and close friends who always listen to me ranting from somewhere behind, are among a few group of friends who can and are willing to understand this journey that I took. I really appreciate all these (small and big) help and encouragement that you had given me from behind the scenes that cannot be seen here (and it’s going to a few pages of essay writing to get it out here too). Thank you very much!

Next, there were things that I learned along the way, the hard way, since I am currently a one person business operation. There are some things that are needed to be done and it gets slipped out of your radar due to the magnitude and quantity of things to be done. One of them was a company logo.

This is my company logo, designed by hatchdesign on Fiverr.

Now, let me tell you the story behind this logo. I was “pushed”, in a good way by Hong Peng of Hpility SG, to get the company logo done up because it was needed for the partnership collaboration on Hpility SG, a Digital Lifestyle Blog-Portal. There were some delays and procrastination that I admit, not knowing where and how to go about doing it as well. Finding my own way through, shortlisting designers and finally settling on this design by hatchdesign. I am impressed with his logo design for my photography portfolio website www.tghphotography.com

Last but not least, let me introduce Hpility SG!

https://www.hpility.sg/
https://www.hpility.sg/

Hpility SG is founded by Hong Peng, it 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.

This is a new start, a new hope, there are still a lot of things to work on, explore, expand and push forward to greater heights. A new journey ahead, time for this partnership between TGH Photography and Hpility SG to light up and open up a new path ahead.

Updates – 28th April 2017

The last update that I did was on 12th March 2017. I haven’t been writing much on my personal thoughts and feelings, rarely sometimes, probably ranting on Twitter and my Facebook Page. I may not even be posting any updates on my personal Facebook, probably just pasting my round up of updates in a article post from here and paste it there.

In between the previous update and this update, the content and articles on my personal site here were mostly about technology updates, I had been pushing myself through, sharing technology news, there were quite a handful over this period of time. Due to a bit of news influx, the sharing of the news, events coverage and reviews might be slower than usual due to my schedule constraints.

This personal site is one of my sites to share content on technology and financial news, one of my channels and platforms for sharing content, complementing my photography business, news and updates relating to photography and travel, as a writer on different industries and interests.

Our current economy is still slow and subdued, personally, my view is that this is going to be a slow and small growth for 2017, a trend that we have to accept for the future as Singapore enters into a mature economy stage. I mentioned earlier in the year that starting a small business in this year is going to take a lot of guts and hardships. My photography business is moving slowly, it still needs some time to get my business stabilised. This journey is very tough, not many people can understand, not many people are willing to learn and understand.

Partnerships and collaborations are stepping up a gear, in time to come, I will share a new partnership. Just to refresh, I am working/partnering with

  1. Wills & Wills
  2. Pro Traders Code

If you like to know more about Will Writing, check out my article here. If you like to know more about trading in the stocks & shares, FOREX market, check out my article here.

Although I need (and we all need) to earn revenue and bring in income, I always tell myself to count my blessings, be full of gratitude, grateful and stay humble. There are some things in life that money CANNOT buy, that is your health and well being. Nothing lasts forever.

Be appreciative of your family and loved ones, spend time with them. I know it is very difficult for me at this stage in time, building up this small photography business and other small business partnerships and collaborations.

I don’t want to make the same mistake again.

Jaybird X3 Wireless Sport Headphones

It’s finally here in Singapore! The Jaybird X3 wireless sport headphones! The Jaybird brand is one of the more popular and well liked wireless headphones in the world, not just because it looks cool and stylish, the sound quality is really good and powerful, packed inside them!

I was given the opportunity to review the Jaybird Freedom recently, the experiences were really good! I did a tech writer/gadgets enthusiast review along with a lifestyle segment article on which group of music lovers would love it, from a sporting lifestyle, a sporty person who loves running and a leisure lifestyle, a cafe lover. Therefore, I have experienced the excellent quality and standards of the Jaybird brand.

With the Jaybird X3 wireless sport headphones, this looks like the wireless headphones to accompany and raise my level of sporting and outdoor adventures. I am looking forward for an opportunity to review it and I would share more stories and photos with the Jaybird X3! The Jaybird X3 wireless looks ideal for me to bring them into the wild, in the nature reserve trekking, trail running, the great outdoors and extreme sports (if I get the chance to go overseas!)

Let me share some key information, details and pictures of the Jaybird X3 wireless sport headphones, for fellow sports and outdoors enthusiasts here in Singapore –

One of the first to bring wireless sport buds to the world, Jaybird today announced Jaybird X3 Wireless Sport Headphones. These next gen wireless in-ear buds don’t require a headphone jack, are sweatproof, Bluetooth® 4.1 and offer a universal secure sport fit with improved sound and customizable audio options. Jaybird X3 brings music to your workout in a whole new way, inspiring you to take on the gym like you’re taking on the world – from running to rock climbing, the gym to the trails, X3 will have you owning your day and your playlist.

“While the world has recently been talking about the disappearing headphone jack, Jaybird has been focused on designing superior wireless experiences for more than a decade,” said Moninder Jain, Managing Director, ASEAN & India Region and Vice President at Logitech. “The new X3 headphones deliver supreme audio quality and secure sport fit, so you have the ultimate wireless accessory to your active life.”

X3 brings larger sound, thanks to an enhanced 6mm driver, as well as smaller size, making it the first in the X-Series to be helmet compatible. The redesigned enhanced-comfort ear fins and selection of ear tips provide a universal secure sport fit during the toughest of workouts. And thanks to Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity, you can now pair two sets of X3 headphones to one device and even pair your X3s to two devices simultaneously.

The redesigned eight-hour battery, means you can enjoy more music on a single charge, and the new in-line remote makes it even easier to control your music and calls. Voice Prompts let you know when you’re successfully paired and connected, or whether your X3 headphones are turned on or off. And with the MySound App, you can now customize your sound settings to the way you want to hear your music. Your custom sound profile is then saved on your X3 headphones, so no matter what music device they’re paired with or which music service you use, they’ll always be tailored to let you train harder and push farther. No more complaints or continually readjusting audio options when switching music devices – you’re now in control.

Key Features

  • Long Battery Life — X3 provides a full eight hours on a single charge.
  • Micro-Sized Design — The micro-sized design is smaller than X2 allowing for a comfortable fit for sport, even when worn under a helmet, a first in the X-Series.

  • Secure-Fit — X3 headphones can be worn in the under-ear or over-ear position to completely lift the cord off the back of your neck, ensuring a snug and comfortable fit in your ears while exercising.

Food Swap Ideas for World Health Day from Bosch

World Health Day is on 7th April, let’s face it, we all love to eat, some live to eat, some eat to live. In Singapore, due to our hectic work and lifestyle, there are many a times whereby we eat outside more than we cook/eat at home, thus our diet is getting richer.

Do you feel the call, the urge to eat healthy on top of staying healthy with exercising? Personally, I face it as my age starts to catch up on me, I am slowly moving towards eating more healthy food, it’s not as easy as it seems with the availability of food choices outside, that makes it so easy to go out and eat before going home.

We can make choices and decisions to eat healthy, let me share with you foodies, food swap ideas for World Health Day from Bosch. These are some great food tips by Bosch that you can do it at home, for your family, without compromising gastronomic enjoyment yet eating healthily!

Tip #1: Ditch butter – go with avocado purée instead

It’s difficult to imagine a life without butter. It tastes delicious on your breakfast toast and it’s a staple ingredient in so many of our favourite dishes and desserts; yet it’s not doing your health any favours. Here’s a secret way to indulge in that delicious, creamy flavour without giving up on your health goals – replace butter with avocado purée. Avocados are chock full of vitamins, loaded with healthy fats, do not contain any cholesterol or sodium, and they make a great dip too.

Tip #2: Swap breadcrumbs for rolled oats

Crispy breadcrumbs add a delicious layer to your dish. But did you know that pre-packed breadcrumbs are often heavily seasoned and packed with sodium? Swap it out for rolled oats mixed with herbs for an aromatic coating for your meat and crumbed seafood dishes instead.

Tip #3: Skip the heavy cream for evaporated skimmed milk

Evaporated skimmed milk has the same consistency as heavy cream – at a fraction of the fat. Evaporated milk tends to have a bit more sugar (about 2 grams), but the major drop in fat content makes it a worthy trade-off for your special pasta dishes and rich creamy desserts.

Tip #4: Replace pasta with zucchini ribbons

Pasta is delicious, easy to make, and a staple of every busy cook’s diet. If you’re looking to cut down on your carbohydrate intake, replacing pasta with thinly sliced zucchini ribbons is a quick way to reach your goals without giving up on your favourite Italian food.

Folks, healthy eating can be just as fun and delicious too! Let’s all strive to eat healthy, starting with the above food swap ideas for World Health Day by Bosch!

Remember to pay-it-forward and pass-it-on, the healthy food swap ideas by Bosch to your family, relatives and friends!

Child-Friendly Rides with Grab

The use of child restraints in cars is a topic that is personal to me, even though I do not have any children, I have quite a number of nephews and nieces of different age range. Being a driver myself, I experienced a motor vehicle accident and saw major vehicle accidents happening to people around me, I am personally concerned on the topic of safe driving and having the appropriate child restraints for your child (if you have one).

Recently, I was introduced to mifold, the world leader in the ultra-compact portable child car seat category, thanks to Grab. This ultra-compact portable child car seat mifold is now equipped inside GrabCar vehicles under an exclusive partnership. During the media event and mifold demonstration, I got to know more about this ultra-compact portable child car seat and they will be now be equipped inside GrabCar vehicles, that can give families with young children the assurance and safety when they hail a GrabCar for their travel.

Here are more details of the child-friendly car rides with Grab with their exclusive partnership with mifold –

Grab, the leading ride-hailing platform in Southeast Asia, announced an exclusive partnership with mifold, the world leader in the ultra-compact portable child car seat category, to enhance child passenger safety in private-hire vehicles and provide more inclusive shared transportation services. Under the partnership, all GrabCar vehicles will be equipped with the advanced, compact and portable mifold Grab-and-Go child booster seats, and be part of the GrabFamily fleet. GrabFamily is Singapore’s first child-friendly private-hire car service operated by drivers who are trained to support families with young children and outfitted with mifold child booster seats designed for children between four and seven years old.

“We have been beta-testing GrabFamily for six months to provide extra care and protection to young passengers. GrabFamily is becoming a popular option for families and we want to make it even easier for parents to find a child-friendly point-to-point ride anywhere, anytime. By having the entire GrabCar fleet doubling up as GrabFamily, we are creating an inclusive shared transportation system to serve more families with young children and also provide additional income opportunities for our driver-partners who can now take GrabFamily bookings on top of regular GrabCar bookings. It’s a win-win for parents and drivers. Ultimately, the goal is to make child-friendly shared transport services more accessible to everyone which will help in reducing the need for car ownership for a car-lite future,” said Andrew Chan, Head of GrabCar Singapore.

According to Singapore’s Road Traffic Act, it is mandatory for children under 1.35m in height to use appropriate child restraints when travelling in private-hire vehicles. However, a Grab survey conducted last month with 520 Singapore-based parents found that only one in three parents (35%) own a child safety restraint, and only a fraction (8.5%) bring it out with them when they are not driving. Other key findings from the survey revealed that:

  • While safety of their child is top priority when travelling in private-hire cars, less than half of the surveyed parents (46%) are willing to pay a premium to use child restraints provided by private-hire car companies.
  • Majority of surveyed parents (62%) think that Grab drivers should proceed with the ride booking even if parents do not have the appropriate child restraints for their children.
  • Three-quarters of the surveyed parents (79%) think it is unfair that child restraints are required for children under 1.35m when travelling in private-hire cars but not taxis, while 8% think it is fair and the rest undecided. Fifty-nine percent cited that the same regulation should apply to both private-hire cars and taxis, while 37% think the regulation is unnecessary for both services.
  • When asked who (i.e. the parent, the driver, the private-hire car company, or all of the above) should be the most responsible for ensuring children’s safety when travelling, only 5% cited the private-hire car company. Yet 47% of parents think the private-hire car company should be the most responsible for providing a child safety restraint.

Commenting on the survey findings, Chan added: “We understand that many parents in Singapore do not own child booster seats and prefer not to invest in one so we are making every GrabCar on the road child-friendly by partnering with mifold. Trained GrabCar drivers can now legally transport child passengers aged four to seven. Grab cares deeply about safety and will continue to invest in making Grab the safest transport platform for our passengers.”

“We are delighted to be selected by Grab to be the exclusive partner for the GrabFamily program,” said Jon Sumroy, CEO and inventor of the mifold Grab-and-Go booster seat. “We created the ultra-compact car seat category with mifold so that more children will be safe in more cars on more journeys, more of the time. In Singapore many people rely on shared transport services to travel and it is simply not practical for passengers to carry around large bulky booster seats. Likewise, drivers cannot carry traditional bulky booster seats, taking up valuable space needed by passengers and for luggage.” Jon added, “We are proud to be partnering with Grab who will be the only ridehailing company in Singapore to offer booster seats in their entire fleet, demonstrating their true commitment to child passenger safety.”

A safer ride for child passengers with mifold booster seats

To ensure a safe and comfortable ride experience for child passengers and their parents, Grab selected the mifold Grab-and-Go booster seat – an advanced, compact and portable design that conforms to the most universally accepted global booster car seat regulations1.

As opposed to regular child booster seats that come in various forms and sizes, the mifold booster seat is a tenth of the size and easy to set up. Unlike a regular booster seat which requires the lifting of a child to be in the position of an adult, the mifold Grab-and-Go booster seat holds the seatbelt down to fit the child properly. Its unique design aids in shifting the seatbelt away from the child’s stomach and neck so that it fits snugly across the child’s chest and hips, keeping the child comfortable and protecting him from injury. The mifold Grab-and- Go booster seat can be easily adjusted to fit child passengers between four to seven years old, weighing between 15kg to 36kg, and under 1.35m in height.

For drivers, the compact mifold Grab-and-Go booster seat offers greater convenience as it can be folded into half and stored in the glove or door compartment, retrieved and set up easily whenever there is a child passenger on the ride. The booster seat is made of easy-to-clean material and stays cool even on a hot, sunny day, making it hygienic for sharing.

Choose Safety, Book GrabFamily

Each GrabFamily ride comes with one mifold Grab-and-Go booster seat for children aged between four and seven years old and weighing between 15 and 36 kg. Parents can book a GrabFamily ride by selecting the GrabFamily icon on the Grab app to ensure they are allocated to a car with the booster seat. Bookings can be made on-demand or in advance, and fares are shown upfront. A GrabFamily booking is just $2 more than the regular GrabCar Economy base fare of $2.50. As of today, more than 1,000 GrabCar drivers have started serving GrabFamily bookings, with all drivers to be onboard over the next few months.

For the best travel experience, Grab advises parents to

  1. Introduce their child to a car seat from an early age

As part of our research through conversations with parents, Grab has found that younger children prefer a car seat they are familiar with. Parents should introduce a child car seat early, as it takes time for children to get used to being buckled into a car seat. If a child has a car seat that he or she already likes, parents can use them for their Grab rides.

2. Book GrabFamily if travelling with young kids

Parents should book a GrabFamily ride by default to ensure drivers are prepared for a ride with a child. Those who book a GrabCar ride and do not have a child restraint with them will be charged a $2 fee on top of their GrabCar fare for the use of mifold booster seat.

3. Communicate your request early on

If parents have any additional requirements, they can leave a note when making a booking, or send drivers a message using the GrabChat in-app function and save on SMS charges. This helps them assess early on if they can accept the ride request, giving parents more time to make alternative arrangements if needed.

Grab is the sole authorised dealer for mifold Grab-and-Go booster seats for the transportation and ride-hailing industry in Singapore. Private-hire car drivers, taxi drivers and transport companies can purchase the mifold Grab-and-Go seat from Grab’s office at 18 Sin Ming Lane, #01-08 Midview City, Singapore 573960.

End of Q1 & Start of Q2 2017

1st April 2017, most people will associate it with April Fool’s Day, not for me though. This date and day marks the end of Q1 2017 and the start of Q2 2017, a new quarter in 2017 has now started.

Q1 2017 was mixed with working behind the scenes where nobody can see what you are doing to get the website, collaborations and partnerships established. The “blood, sweat and tears”, the stress, pressure and growth of more white hair. Yet, hard work and perseverance pays off, your fruits of labour, very slowly appear and start to grow, while it’s still very very small, this marks a start, new growth and expansion. The journey ahead is still filled with many giant obstacles, winding roads, tall mountains, gusty weather, there are many things to weather and get through them.

Today also marked the return back to my alma mater, Gan Eng Seng School Dragon Scout Group. I had been pretty quiet and away from this family for probably about 1 year since the 94th anniversary campfire in 2016. It felt really great to be back, in the midst of an old old boy among the young boys and girls in secondary school, ventures, rovers and the junior leaders. This was homecoming for me, felt great to return back to this one big Dragon Scout Group family, celebrating her 95th anniversary in 2017.

Sometimes, I write a short personal post, sometimes a very long personal post here on my personal site. Updating status on my personal Facebook wall is going to be a lot lesser or non-existent sometimes, except sharing of my personal and my photography and travel site posts, or interesting news/articles. More action can be seen on my Facebook Page on the topics of photography and travel.

Sometimes, I need to write and share something different, to break away from the technology posts that readers would usually read it here.

Goodbye Q1 2017 and Welcome Q2 2017.

Would you like to learn FOREX trading?

When the term FOREX trading comes into your mind, is it something very difficult and foreign to you? Is it something very technical and confusing to you? Are you an investor that would like to learn FOREX trading as an extension to your current investment platforms? Or you someone who sees yourself as a future investor that wishes to gain more knowledge in the area of financial investment tools in order to conduct your own investments to earn passive income?

Today, I would like to introduce you to ProTradersCode, a website and platform founded by fellow entrepreneur friend, Brian Lam, a professional trader, he’s also an internet marketing expert that saved me a few times with my WordPress platform technical troubleshooting. Brian and myself, went to the same FOREX trading class together a few years back. We took different routes in life, Brian continued on to become a professional trader while I continued in freelance/semi-professional photography and established my commercial/professional photography in January 2017.

An investor myself, it’s like coming a full circle and back again to FOREX trading. I am going back to restart my FOREX trading after a hiatus, by attending Brian’s FOREX trading class.

This is not telling you that you have to do FOREX trading and investment. Any form of investment that you decide to take up and start is at your own personal decision after learning about the investment knowledge, techniques, careful thorough analysis and consideration. Investments are not for everybody, let alone, FOREX trading, a much more technical and complex form of financial investment tools.

If you would like to know and learn more about FOREX trading, sign up for ProTradersCode preview session and listen to Brian’s sharing before you make any decision whether you would like/want to sign up for his FOREX trading class.

The ProTradersCode website link is here, if you are keen, click on it, go to the website and more information is available there!

Some updates and announcements

Taking the pen and writing down the points that I wanted to write for this post, I took a back in time and reflected on my journey for the past 1 year. It was coincidental or even an omen that it took a year since I left my previous organisation in 2016. March 2016 was the start of a journey from the bottom of the well, getting myself back on track with the hurt, disappointments, anger and a big blow to my self-belief. The journey in 2016 doesn’t make it easier dealing with the loss of three people that left the world.

All these life lessons taught me and honed me in many different ways, over the course of this 1 year. Yes, it took me a bit longer than some of your “perceived + expected” expectations to reach this juncture today, writing out these updates and announcements article. Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day.

In the past few months, the first quarter of 2017, I was very busy preparing and setting up my photography business, when you planned and prepared your things yet you faced even more things popping up here and there. More life lessons learned during the past few months, always be prepared for more of the unexpected even though you had did your planning. Thus, there was a slowdown and backlogged in writing and sharing my technology posts. They would be swinging back to action soon.

Therefore, what are my major updates and announcements?

First and foremost, I took the leap of faith and founded my photography business, Tan Geng Hui Photography. There were some changes, restructuring and realignment of my photography sites, written in an article here for your reading.

Meanwhile, I am still working with Wills & Wills, let me recap on what they do and the importance of will writing and estate planning.

Moreover, I am now added another work to my portfolio, working with ProTradersCode. They specialise in conducting classes on how to invest/trade FOREX and stocks and shares. I would be sharing more about them in an upcoming article soon.

The journey ahead for 2017 and 2018 are very tough and challenging, a time to adapt, adjust, innovate and change. I took the first step on my long journey ahead of me, let it be an amazing adventure of growth, expansion and learning.

Quick Update – 23rd February 2017

This personal and technology website of mine here has been a bit slow for the months of January and February.

I do have a few new technology products announcements and events that I attended that I would like to share here. I apologise if my posts had been a bit slow here for the months of January and February. Moving forward, I would try my best to make my balancing act better for both my personal / technology website and my photography and travel interest website.

I had been working a lot behind the scenes, on the setup of my new photography portfolio website, it’s coming soon! I am currently pushing out more photography and travel content on my photography and travel interest site – http://www.photojournalist-tgh.tv/ , in preparation to complement my upcoming photography portfolio website.

Thank you to all you folks who had been following and reading my posts from personal, technology, travel and photography!

A short reflection and getting ready to push forward ahead

Time flies pretty fast, it’s almost 2 weeks since the 1st day of Chinese Lunar New Year 2017. While I couldn’t really celebrate Chinese Lunar New Year, I had more of a rest time, gathering and bonding time.

Things are starting to pick up again, hopefully, I can get it stabilised by next week and concentrate fully on marketing my photography sole proprietorship business. It had been a hectic and busy time to get my things up and running. Soon, I would announce and introduce it, currently facing a heavy backlog of articles and things to do. I am clearing them as soon as possible in order for me to concentrate on new business, projects and assignments, while juggling other work too.

In 2017, I am entering into a new area, putting my photography and writing, incorporating into my tech gadgets review along with a lifestyle product shoot with my story telling.

This is something interesting and exciting for me, an area that I would like to expand on for the year 2017 and beyond. My maiden personal project is on the Jaybird Wireless where my areas of tech, photography and writing are combined together.

Till things get a bit more stabilised, my articles sharing might slow down as I build more on partnerships and collaborations for the near future, hoping that all these would eventually bring in the additional revenue for me.

I hope and I want to build stronger working/collaboration relationship and also on a more personal basis with brands, agencies and institutions that benefit both parties. One of my personal and professional philosophy is think and work on Win-Win for both parties.

There are so many challenges ahead for Singapore and the world. I can write a lengthy article on this topic, that’s another few articles to write in the near future. Change and innovate now or get ready to be disrupted and left behind, no matter how high your education level that you have obtained.

I don’t post thesis length thoughts, writing, ranting and sharing “don’t know what kind of news” on Facebook. My thoughts and feelings can be very private, what you see and read here, are what you can see and read, I don’t (rarely) write personal thoughts/complains/ranting on my Facebook wall everyday, except photography and travel articles/sharing on my Facebook page.

The journey ahead is like building a Lego city, currently building the base, bricks by bricks, making a stable foundation first before going to the next level.

I have no time, no space, no heart for those people (even if you are a relative) who look down on me.

I will continue to work extra hard, extra smart, mindful of the changes, disruptions and surroundings, to adapt as fast as I can for whatever endeavours that I have taken on.
