Vote for and help Thanh aka MetalAZNWarrior win funds for his wedding!

Remember a blogger named Thanh, better known as MetalAZNWarrior?  Remember spending hours reading his blog TVB Musings and getting inspired to write because of it like me?  Well, he hasn't forgotten us and and wants our help!

He is getting married soon (anyone remember another great blogger? Nhi or Tkn Portrait ring a bell?), and has entered a contest with David's Bridal to win funds for his wedding.  Please read his marriage proposal story and vote for him everyday here: http://bit.ly/VLM0Gb.  Wasn't his proposal so creative and romantic? :)  Help him make his and Nhi's dream wedding come true!

Now that I've voted and told my readers to vote, I'm going to relive memories (and potentially find inspiration again) by rereading my mentor/"si fu"'s old posts on web.archive.org.  :P

Don't forget to vote!!

New banner and layout! Featuring Matthew Ko and STEPSTAGE

After having my 3 year anniversary layout gracing TVB Interaction since, well, my 3 year anniversary back in June, I thought it was time for a new look!

This time I featured Matthew Ko and his recently opened performing arts school "STEPSTAGE". For those who don't know, during the downtime Matthew had from his leg injury, he took the time to make a dream he had come true: start a performing arts training school for young children. This made me like and respect him a lot more as an artist and a person. He seems very bright and ambitious, and looks so adorable and comfortable around the children. I found a lot of cute pictures lying around, so I decided to make a banner out of them! The phrase "The arts are meant to be passed down..." is supposed to show how Matthew thinks of the arts as enrichment and should be exposed to children at a young age. Since the banner revolves around a youthful theme with Matthew and the little students, I decided to pick more fun and whimsical fonts and colors to go with it.

For the first time I'm using one of the new Blogger templates for a change. It looks refreshing, in my opinion. If I still prefer my old template though, I have the HTML code of it saved. What do you guys think?
