I jumped on the Project 365 bandwagon two weeks ago, which was only about, oh, a billion years too late. It would have been neater to wait until the beginning of 2012, but I thought it best to start now, now, now! or I might never get around to doing it.
I decided to post my photos daily on the virtual junk drawer that is my Tumblr blog, then sift through the crap and share only my favorites here. These are the non-crap from weeks 1–2:
Day 3: This building near our office looks just like a Pantone color chart.
Day 8: Long meetings mean drinking loads of caffeine and doodling during breaks. Or better yet, doodling over-caffeinated cats on one’s tea cup.
Day 12: Vietnamese baguette, coconut cake and plum soda for dinner.
Of all the places I got to visit because of my job thus far, Melbourne is my hands-down favorite. I was there several weeks ago with two other colleagues to attend agIdeas 2010. Highlights of my trip included being equally star-struck by Theo Jansen and by the Twelve Apostles, losing one of my travel buddies while trying to board a sardine can of a tram, and simply basking in the brisk autumn air.
One thing I learned during my week in Melbourne… was that a week in Melbourne simply wasn’t enough. I guess I’ll just have to go back sometime.

Bubbling Up, my second Tumblr theme, made it to the Theme Garden not more than a week after I blogged about my newfound love of Tumblr and its bevy of hipster puppies. What do you think? I personally prefer this theme over my first one.
On a totally related note (you’ll see how at the end), I recently went on a business trip to Brunei, where my coworkers and I were lucky enough to stay at the swanky Empire Hotel under a sky this blue:

The average office desk can hold all kinds of strange and awesome things. Unfortunately for those reading this post, mine is of the tamer variety. Considering that these are the more interesting items on my desk, just imagine how mundane the rest of its contents are.
Oh, Crap. I stuck a random cow-shaped clip on top of my computer, and one of my brilliant coworkers took time out of his busy schedule to complete the scene with a heaping pile of poo that he fashioned out of Blu-Tack. He even used a marker to give it a surprisingly realistic greenish brown tint. Nice.

People should try not to make any important decisions when they’ve just woken up. That includes deciding what to wear to work, as shown by this tweet from last year:
This wardrobe workout is turning out to have more benefits that I initially thought. Not only am I making better use of the wardrobe I already have, but I have also stopped showing up to work with day-glo underwear shining through light-colored clothes. Woot!
Here’s what I wore for week two of my little experiment:
Military Monday. I think that cardigan is so cute it deserves a salute.
- Blue military-inspired cardigan – Bysi
- Gray henley camisole – Uniqlo
- Black skinny jeans – Freego
- Black round-toe slingbacks – Charles & Keith
- Black bow hairband – Montip
