1st June 2022 – Start of a new month, strategising changes ahead

It’s Wednesday 1st June 2022, this marks the start of a new month, strategising changes ahead. Although it’s not yet the end of Q2 2022/H1 2022, there had been some thoughts, thinking, planning, reflections and strategising that took place over the past 2 weeks. I am writing them out, not too lengthy in words, I just need to type it out here and publish on my technology, business and personal website TGH Technology and Business portal/blog.

The economic situation had not been in good condition since the global pandemic hit the world in 2020, even though the world is coming out of the woods in 2022, the world is transiting from one troubled economy to another troubled and turbulent economy created by other elements. While I made the changes to adapt, adopt and change my business model and direction, diversifying into other business areas, upgrading new skills and knowledge, the whole situation is not getting any easier for small business operations like myself.

The world is messy, it’s getting worse and social media doesn’t help to make it better. Throw in the complacent and self-entitled human race, we might be in for a repeat of vicious cycle of history repeating if we are not careful and taking actions to make the changes for the future and better living.

Some opportunities had appeared recently, that got me reflecting and thinking deeply. Changes maybe coming on the horizon, if that change takes place, other changes would follow too. I mentioned it before on my social media platforms through small subtle hints. Only a very very small handful would know what’s on my cards.

On top of my regular content creation backlogs, I am pushing for the month of June to complete my editing and amendments of my second photography zine, speaking to my regular printing house here in Singapore for local prints. For international friends, they can get it from the MagCloud platform.

Start of a new month June 2022, I am strategising changes ahead. Anyway, how many read what I wrote and shared in detail here?

Updates, Thoughts and Views on 1st May 2022 Labour Day

It’s Sunday 1st May 2022, start of a new month in the midst of a long weekend here in Singapore with Hari Raya Puasa public holiday on Tuesday 3rd May 2022. If you have been following and reading my portal/blog for a while, you would know I would break my technology and business media news coverage with personal updates, reflections, thoughts and views on personal matters and other areas. Here’s me starting off the month of May, on a long weekend break with something different – Updates, Thoughts and Views on 1st May 2022 Labour Day.

Call for media pitches: Special Theme Q2 2022 – Fully Restarting Tourism

First and foremost, a major update for my TGH Photography and Travel portal/blog. I am inviting a call for media pitches: Special Theme Q2 2022 – Fully Restarting Tourism. The world is opening up their borders, lowering/removing the travel restrictions. This reopening/restarting is not immediate, it would need a bit of time to ramp up resources, training, planning and getting hands on again.

More information on this media pitch can be read here!

Photography Business

An area of concern as this is not picking up as fast as I would like it to be. I would relook into this from both internal and external factors/environments, what I am currently doing, planning and in relation with my other areas of work/other business.

Social Media Marketing

I entered into this sector with high hopes that I would do alright at the start. However, I was taken aback in the wide scope, requirements and expectations for this field of work, this was much harder than I initially thought and expect.

Hard and harsh lessons learnt, now to continue adapting and changing to implement and combine all elements of my photography, videography, writing, content creation and all things social media/digital marketing together, more efficiently and effectively.

Oh yes, throw in “You have to be a designer/graphic artist” as well.

Other Business Interests

I have always been on the lookout for other business interests, finding opportunities to invest or work in them. I can’t say much more due to business sensitivity and privacy. When the time is ripe, I would share more.

Content Creation / Writer’s World

Content creation and writing, on both personal and professional basis, have opened many journeys, avenues, social media platforms and friendships that I never dreamt about. My second photography zine is undergoing review, edit and amendments, there should be an official announcement coming in later part of May 2022.

On a personal note

We are finally opening up, from the economy, borders and travel, to our daily living. We all want a full return back to normal life again soon, will we be the same as before? I am not too sure whether we can still return back to those pre-pandemic days. How would the new future of work and living turn out, I do not know.

I am planning to consolidate my stories, thoughts, feelings and emotions that I went through during this global pandemic period (from 2020), my visual stories and my photographs, before giving a deep thought on my next course of action.

ASUS Announces Partnership with Blue Microphones by Logitech

ASUS announces partnership with Blue Microphones by Logitech, the world’s renowned innovative audio production brand to join the ongoing initiative and efforts of ASUS Creators Academy.

The ASUS Creators Academy started in 2021, it’s a platform for local content creators to share, learn and inspire each other.

Till today, the Creators Academy has already seen many creators onboard with many tutorials, tips and guides lined up for the community.

Reflecting Q1 2022, Updates and Thoughts

We are near to the end of March 2022, approximately 1 week+ away from today 20th March 2022. Since I had a number of thoughts and things going on in my mind, I was thinking why not combine them with my Q1 2022 reflections, along with some updates and lastly my thoughts and things going on in my mind.

Give peace a chance 

First and foremost, this matter had been troubling me inside my mind when the Ukraine and Russia crisis erupted. It’s all over international news networks, I wanted to write down and share my thoughts, feelings and views, however, I just got stuck trying to write it down into words.

Give peace a chance, stop the war, no more war please.

Social Media Marketing / Content Creation

If you remembered my earlier post, I have embarked on social media marketing / content creation for a food business. This is a heavy workload gig, it’s very challenging to be consistently creative and being able to produce unique content on a regular basis. Only very few friends would know about my work situation when I met them and shared about my work. Many challenges ahead with added workload too, a number of other areas to work on and handle as well. Let’s see where this would take me to.

There is also a potential content creator/writer gig for a technology website, I am working on their trial and I hope to pass their writing test before I can be accepted. As of now, I won’t know how it would turn out, I will try my best, fingers crossed and see whether this would work out for me.

Photography Zine / Playbook update

In this article that I published on my TGH Photography and Travel portal/blog, I am excited with my new photography zine / playbook. However, I underestimated my workload and time management on this project, balancing with my photography business and social media marketing / content creation commitments.

My adjusted timeline is to get my curated photographs placed and layout nicely inside my book, a final check before a trial print to have a feel, look, followed by another final check and adjustments before talking to the local printing house.

Photography

Business

On the photography business segment, it’s not getting back on track as I would like to. Therefore, I would relook again into this, the areas that I can work on, changes and marketing/publicity side of things.

Canon EOS R3, RF600mm f/11 IS STM and RF800mm f/11 IS STM reviews

I have recently reviewed the Canon EOS R3, RF600mm f/11 IS STM and RF800mm f/11 IS STM lenses, glad to have the opportunity to do a more in-depth review after earlier hands on experiences with them in 2021 and 2020 respectively.

Keep a lookout for my reviews, coming soon on my TGH Photography and Travel portal/blog.

Training / Consultancy

An area that I found myself entering into, training and consultancy in the field of photography, camera technology. While I did consider photography/camera training previously, I didn’t embark on this sector due to prioritising my commitments and time.

With an opportunity coming onboard for a collaboration project, this is definitely an area that I would be looking into more in-depth down the road. I may have the photography / camera knowledge and experiences, the time is now for me to translate them into easy language, understanding and usability from a “consumer perspective”, for those just entering into photography, or moving them up from the smartphone photography / compact camera photography segments.

Personal Photography Projects

On the topic of personal photography projects, I have embarked and worked on different personal photography projects over the years, you can view them on my Flickr albums/collections!

I have yet to decide on which personal photography project to embark on, I might continue on some of my existing personal photography projects.

Personal Matters of the Mind, Heart and Soul

Covid fatigue

The past 2+ years (and still counting) had not been an easy time for many of us around the world due to the ongoing global pandemic situation. This year 2022 might be the year that the world can truly open up again, hopefully, this would not be a false sign.

Covid fatigue has brought some people to their breaking point, the whole world needs to work together closer and faster, as compared to 1-2 years back when we were still trying to learn and understand about this pandemic. The world needs to be break out from this global pandemic,  embark on the route to opening up and recovery.

Mental health / Emotional health

Our mental and emotional health/well-being has been severely affected, the future impacts and outcomes on the society and us in a post pandemic world still awaits to be seen.

I am still mentally and emotionally drained, exhausted yet showing no signs on the outside. The ongoing struggles are real, they are still very tough and challenging. Although comparing now to a period in 2021 whereby I was struggling, stuck in a rut, my mental and emotional health was not in a good state, the situation at this current stage has improved.

While I may seem to share a lot on Twitter, relative to my personal Facebook and Instagram, I don’t really share as much details and photos into my life, keeping my things and stuff private.  Most of you would also know or realised that I don’t show much of myself in photos unless I am being tagged.

A reminder to myself: We can choose and Decide to be Happy.

Starting FY2022 on a right note

Monday 3rd January, first Monday of the first week of Year 2022. Some of us would be starting work today, some might be having their public holiday off-in-lieu since New Year Day 2022 was on a Saturday. As for me, while my FY2022 starts on 1st January 2022, I am back in action today, starting FY2022 on a right note with a few updates.

Media Relations

Since this is the start of a new year, I would like to reach out to the various pr agencies, organisations and brands that I worked/engaged with over the years. Thank you for the trust, good working relationships and engagements.

There would be some discussions and matters that we need to follow-up, please drop me an email if I missed out or those that you like to work together on for this Year 2022.

CES 2022 Coverage

CES 2022 is taking place in January 2022, I would be starting coverage on them with the media news updates that I received from the brands/organisations that have sent me media news in December 2021.

I would share more CES 2022 news over this week and maybe the following week, depending on my articles publishing schedule and more CES 2022 media news come in over the next few days.

Yearly Theme and goals for Year 2022

During the last week of Year 2021, I spent some time reflecting as well as planning and strategising for Year 2022. I have tentatively selected my yearly theme for my photography and travel and technology, business and personal in this Year 2022, along with goals that I am setting for myself in the Year 2022. I would be publishing them soon, keep a lookout for them!

Photography (Business and Leisure) Quick Updates

Some quick updates here as I usually post my photography business/leisure updates on my TGH Photography and Travel Portal/Blog.

  • Time to update my photography business portfolio website
  • Finishing up my second photography zine, tentatively announcing and launching it at the end of January 2022
  • Back up my Q4 2021 photographs
  • More updates would be announced along the way

Administrative Work and Back Up Time

A new FY2022, administrative work needs to be done, backing up and keeping FY2021 records and documentations, whether it’s hard copies or files stored inside my computer. Next would be setting up FY2022 folders.

Spring cleaning in preparation for CNY 2022

Chinese New Year (CNY) 2022 is just 4 weeks away, CNY 2022 falls on 1st February and 2nd February 2022. Spring cleaning in preparation for CNY 2022 starts this week, I would clear, pack up, rearrange and replace my things in stages, every small step/spring cleaning leads to a bigger picture of a lesser packed/messy WFH.

A New Journey has Begun

A new journey has begun, what lies ahead is still unknown due to the ongoing global pandemic situation. I would share more of my thoughts and views in my 2022 yearly theme and goals. Personally, I am cautious for Year 2022, I don’t wish to get myself into another false sense of optimism when Year 2021 started.

Stay safe and take good care of health, mental and emotional well-being as we continue to battle and find a way out from this global pandemic situation.
