This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”

  1. One very annoying that has happened to a colleague of mine this morning is he upgraded to outlook.com with out any email problems until he tried to use Live messenger.

    Since he moved over to his outlook.com address his previous hotmail.co.uk account (that he had all his contacts on in live messenger) obviously wouldnt work. So when he logged in to live messenger with his new outlook.com account he has had to go through and get people to him again as its a different address, because of this i will be holding off on upgrading to outlook.com

    • Hi _D,

      I have signed in to my MSN Messenger without any problem using my @outlook.com here.

  2. and all your contacts from previous MSN Messenger account were transferred over, so you didnt have to add anyone?

    • yup no need to add anything and all the contacts are intact.

  3. interesting that would make sense, but colleague wasnt that lucky. Could be because he uses a Mac and possibly adium to connect to msn.

    If im brave enough i may try it later on
