Bloglines and Readings

Been using Bloglines for a while now and I like it a lot. It’s a way to keep track of all the blogs I read at one place where I’ll know automatically if there’s new posts. It saves my lazy ass time to go to each blog separately every time to find out if there’re new updates.

Another point is you can search for so many hot and interesting blogs out there and also keep up-to-date with whatever topics or news groups you’re interested in, be it techy writings, geeky stuff, comics, etc.

Like today, I stumbled upon this interesting Alpha Male Lessons, found myself reading through all the 18 articles at one go. Had some insights, some laughs, and was really touched by her story in lesson 13 where she wrote about her father. Lesson 15 is also not to be missed. ;-)

Just give bloglines a try!

Lindy Hop

Inspired by a friend’s writing on lindy hop, here’s my share of what the dance is to me.

Lindy has been a part of my life for 3 ½ years now, I’m still loving it. It’s all about fun, connection with your partner, musicality, body awareness and play. Of course enjoying swing music is a big part.

The swing community here is pretty small as compared to other countries, even when there’s the inevitable bitching sometimes, it’s still warm & cosy and I love our circle of friends. :-)

Swing has also brought me to places for dance camps & exchanges, learnt lots from fabulous gurus and the experiences from those camps are invaluable as well as fun! Plus, many precious friendships were made along the way, you won’t believe how easy it is to start a conversation with like-minded people without feeling awkward.

All you have to do is ask “Do you wanna dance?”

Will I ever quit lindy? My answer today is a bold NO!

Let’s dance, baby!
