Sunday Market Day along Soi Pradit, Bangkok


I was in Bangkok on a Sunday morning, wandering on my own  when I stumbled onto this local wet (fresh produce) market along Soi Pardit. Visiting a market is one of my favourite way to appreciate a new culture while travelling.

This picture was taken in a laneway just off Soi Pradit. I loved how everyone looked so happy and relaxed in this picture. This is what Sunday are for, being with family, friends and the local community.


Happy National Day, Singapore!

Singapore-city-skyline-Marina-Bay-Sands-Downtown-from-Marina-Barrage-BernoWe, the citizens of Singapore,
pledge ourselves as one united people,
regardless of race, language or religion,
to build a democratic society
based on justice and equality
so as to achieve happiness, prosperity and
progress for our nation.

Majulah Singapura!

An Overview of Microsoft Research: Our Identity, Purpose, Directions and Culture

I uploaded a new Microsoft Research (MSR) video led by Rick Rashid, Tony Hey (External Research) and the six Microsoft Research Labs Managing Directors (including New England) on the web.

This video talks about what is Microsoft Research: our identity, our role in Microsoft, the lab’s research focuses, directions and our common culture. I hope this video gives you an idea what makes Microsoft Research, a genuine exciting research organisation to advance the state of art in science and technology and deliver the next round of innovation to Microsoft users and the world.
