An inside look at Google's campus.

Following the SES San Francisco conference last week, ClickZ.asia met with Google engineer Ping Yeh, who relocated from the Taiwan office to the Mountain View headquarters a few weeks ago.

While he was unable to share details on what he's currently working on at the new projects team, he gave a quick tour around the campus.

He is said to be the first Singaporean to join Google in 2000.
