Hi! My name is Isaak Kwok and welcome to my blog. I was born in Singapore and have studied and worked there most of my life. Since November 2008, Adelaide, South Australia has been home and I’m enjoying the 4 seasons, the accessibility to nature and the famous wine regions of South Australia.
We also had a dog, Jeremiah, who is of the Maltese breed. Unfortunately, Jeremiah died a few days after he came out of quarantine in February 2009 in Australia.
Now, we have Shaun the Dog, who is a Labradoodle.
Prior to the move, I was working with the National Library Board, Singapore as an Adult and Young People’s librarian of the Public Libraries doing many varied things such as library outreaches, hosting programmes, conducting book talks, writing book reviews, and providing reference services. I also maintain Blogging Librarian, that covers mainly the use of new technologies and social media in libraries.
Isaak Kwok dot Com is served out of pair Networks and powered by WordPress. The site is generally maintained using Coda 2 and Transmit. The posts are written up in MarsEdit or Editorial on the iPad. The photos and graphics are processed through Adobe Lightroom and/or Pixelmator. All this ‘hard work’ is done on a MacBook Pro. (Updated: 14 March 2014)
