So Want These!

Written by • Feb 9th, 2012 • Category: Others
Personally … I think these are two of the most beautiful cameras Lomography ever created. Really! Now that’s my personal opinion … maybe because I love how raw they look. Lomography … why do you have to do this? Even if you have to do it … why do two of them at the same time?!!! I ain’t got a piggy in my Lomography account and I still need to keep some money for beer! Duh! When I first saw the Coyote … I told myself ‘Okay … get this… >> read more


Lovin It Ugly

Written by • Feb 2nd, 2012 • Category: Others
Trouble began when I read about rumors of a mirrorless camera from Pentax that accepts any K-mount lens. Now I’m glad I didn’t sell off any of the few Limited silver lenses I have and soon … those lovely lenses (including my Lensbabies!) will have a new mommy (my silver K5 is the daddy!). Well … this mommy ain’t the slim and sexy type though. Hahahaha! She’s ermm … boxy and ermm … weird … but I’m loving it! 16.28 Megapixel CMOS sensor form the K-5 New Prime M imaging… >> read more


Meet Pandacake!

Written by • Jan 27th, 2012 • Category: Others
It is great to be back home in Singapore after 5 days in Malaysia to celebrate the Lunar New Year with my folks. One of the coolest thing  to happen during the trip was the delivery of my Pandacake … a character from the wooden Pecanpals series by designer Noferin. This is from the third and final edition of the Pecanpals … the monochrome edition. No prize for guessing why I choose Pandacake. 😛   This cute little wooden girl came in a very neat packaging. I didn’t take her out… >> read more


A Break Too Long

Written by • Jan 17th, 2012 • Category: Others
Guess I’ve been taking too long a break from updating my blog. I’ve not been shooting much lately and there are a few rolls of unfinished film in few of my cameras. The Lunar New Year is coming in a few days and hopefully during my stay in Malaysia (to spend the New Year with my folks) I am able to get trigger happy again. For the last couple of weeks (or months?) … what on earth was I doing if I ain’t busy with my cameras? Apart from the… >> read more


iPhone Poison Again!

Written by • Dec 21st, 2011 • Category: Others
Let me start by saying (again) that I ain’t no Apple hater. I use an Android phone & tablet yet I am using Apple products for my desktop and notebook. The only one thing I don’t seem to wanna get from Apple is the iPhone. However … every now and then something comes along and makes me go ‘hmm … maybe I should get one!’. This is one of them … Neat stuff eh? The Gizmon iCA seems to be some attachment that turns an iPhone into ermm … a… >> read more


Ello Elephant!

Written by • Nov 29th, 2011 • Category: Others
The Elephant Parade is here and when we were out shopping last weekend, after checking out the numerous awesome designs (on the elephants) … Fitzand was attracted by a mini elephant sculpture painting activity in a corner. Luckily he preferred to paint one at home … otherwise I might have to wait there for hours before he can finish one. That is if he has the patience to sit there that long. Anyway … we picked up a blank elephant sculpture and headed home. I saved ten bucks because we… >> read more


Me vs Developing Tank

Written by • Nov 23rd, 2011 • Category: Others
After years of hesitation, I was finally convinced to give DIY film development of black & white film a go. All thanks to Jimmy who even helped me pick up a set of the developing kit when he bought his recently. I rushed over to ThirtySix during lunch to pick up the stuffs and he gave me a 5 minutes crash course on how to go about developing film. Ermm … a super rush training and I left the shop still in a state of confusion. All I remembered was… >> read more


3 Days Away, 2 Troubles

Written by • Nov 20th, 2011 • Category: Others
Three days away from home … three (painful) days without internet access … and I reached back here in Singapore with my email account flooded with mails, my blog guestbook flooded with few spam entries trying to sell me Viagra … and in that pile of unread emails … there were two pretty ‘deadly’ ones! This first one is from a blog reader who asked if I’ll have a ‘sneak preview’ of a Holga panoramic camera (thanks, Erik!) Huh? I thought the pano camera was the old pinhole one but… >> read more


Class Photo + Video

Written by • Nov 5th, 2011 • Category: Others
The start of a long weekend (Monday’s a public holiday! Yeah!!!) and I’m slacking at home after a morning at the playground with Fitzand. Perhaps I’ll take this opportunity to upload some of the photos I have in backlog and get my blog updated a little. I am itching to drop by ThirtySix later today to collect my LomoKino and go burn a couple of rolls with it tomorrow. Should I? 😀 Fitzand’s class photo (Nursery 2) Here’s a video I extracted from a DVD from the school … from… >> read more


No Love For These

Written by • Oct 20th, 2011 • Category: Others
While I was still waiting for a good offer to buy my liver so that I could afford the 2 metal editions of the La Sardina, I thought I might have to let go my lungs too when I saw that there are 4 new special editions of the camera. Thank God these 4 designs don’t seem to tempt me much (if at all). Phew!!! Okay … I must admit the Cubic version does look pretty nice. Perhaps if the first original 4 versions (with retro looking sardines and all)… >> read more
