About This Blog
This blog was first started on 27 December 2004 in Livejournal and titled Celebrate Life!. It has since migrated here to WordPress on 3 September 2010 and renamed Celebrate Life Lah!.
Why Celebrate Life Lah!?
- The domain names ‘celebratelife’ and ‘darrenng’ were both taken up in WordPress. Since lah sounds like life, I decided to use ‘celebratelah’ as the domain name and added that Singaporean slang to the blog title.
- Being THE word that embodies Singlish, lah gives the blog a distinctive Singaporean flavour and an air of casualness and fun! (Or hint of rebellious undertones since lah defies the government’s Speak Good English Campaign? Heh heh… )
- The title is a reminder and call for me (and hopefully for readers) to celebrate every moment in life regardless of good or bad times. But especially during bad times. For everything shall pass, and by celebrating the lessons we’ve learnt during those difficult times, the strength and insight we’ve gained, would make the bitter moments pass faster.
Those few points more or less captured the spirit of this blog which is a light-hearted but heartfelt look at life. While I try to be unbias in my opinions, that’s not possible. We all have some form of prejudices, paradigms and preconceived notions. As such, you do not have to agree with what I’ve said or am I trying to tell you what to do. I’m just sharing my experiences and the possibility that you may experience it the same way too. If you have other ways of looking at something, do leave a comment on the entry and expand my mind!
I would like to thank you sincerely for visiting my blog and spending the time to read it. I will work to improve it continuously with more interesting topic categories and useful information. I hope my posts have provided you with some amusements and in the process, given you an inspiration to celebrate life… lah!
