ETRsi + 135W : Test 1

Written by • Aug 9th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Guess I got a little too trigger happy and ended with 3 rolls since yesterday … testing out my newly found joy … the 135W back for the Bronica ETRsi. Below are the photos from the first roll … mostly taken during a zoo trip with Fitzand yesterday. He is pretty capable in handling the scooter at the zoo now and I got to relax at the back (of course always on the alert when he starts to lose control being distracted by the animals). He will stop at almost… >> read more

Sun, Water, Fun, Kids

Written by • Apr 1st, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Another day from my childcare leave was used up today. Spent more than half a day with Fitzand and his friends (plus teachers) at the zoo but this time … it ain’t the usual zoo trip. They had a small picnic at the kids’ play area and the little ones had a big blast! If you are wondering if Fitzand’s classmates are all girls … hahahaha … nope … but somehow most of the boys disappeared into the shades after a while. Hmm … allergic to sun and water? It… >> read more

Summer Is Here!

Written by • Dec 23rd, 2010 • Category: Others
About a month (or was it two?) ago … while chatting with a friend about dressing up Holga cameras, she asked if I’d be interested to help her do one as a present for a friend of hers. While I usually do not like the idea of having deadlines for doing such things (there is enough bloody deadlines at work!), I somehow agreed. We agreed on a certain fee to cover the camera, the materials and of course a few jugs of espresso to keep me awake … and the… >> read more

Another weekend just came and went. As much as I’d like to spend more time with my cameras, I decided to dedicate more almost all the time with Fitzand … despite knowing the fact that I’ll be dead tired come Sunday night. The best part was by the time Fitzand went to bed (early) … I found that my modem died a natural death and I was left without internet access. Grrrr! Yet to finish a couple of rolls on different cameras, so this entry will be peppered with just… >> read more

Lo Batt -.-

Written by • May 16th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
My battery is running very low now as I’m typing this. After having one too many beer last night and waking up early morning to bring my family to the zoo … I haven’t really got any rest since my eyes opened this morning. We had great time at the zoo but unfortunately the ‘Mini Explorer’ thingie which we usually rent to cart Fitzand around was ‘out of stock’. That caused me to be his replacement ‘vehicle’ at the zoo and after about 5 hours there … I drove home… >> read more

Watching Rabbits Munch

Written by • Feb 1st, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Fitzand loves animals and he was delighted when I told him that I’ll be bringing him to the Animal Resort to feed rabbits and spend some fun time there. While he usually tries not to take his afternoon nap during weekends (because he’ll wanna play all day like I do), he willingly went to bed at about 2pm … knowing that he’ll have to wake up in time for the trip to feed rabbits. After spending some time with the rabbits, he wanted to feed a horse there but was… >> read more

The End : Video (18SX)

Written by • Sep 15th, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
This is a SICK video. Watch at your own risk. I was sick yesterday and since I had to stay home to rest … I got really bored and did this little video. Lighting was bad, camera was lousy (aka Digital Harinezumi) and I was sick. Get it? Anyway … here it goes … Disclaimer : The characters in this tale are fictional. Any similarity to any of you out there … is … ermmm … not my fault. 😀 I’m gonna send this to National Geographic.… >> read more

Snowing In Kitchen

Written by • Aug 2nd, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
Following a recent ‘pizza making‘ experience … Fitzand asked us for some play dough last night and this morning … we decided to DIY some for him instead as the toy stores were not open yet. It all started with some good clean fun and later evolved into some snow storm in my kitchen … The “I am gonna do something naughty” look … *sweats* Zooooom! Up goes the dough … This is when the big time fun chaos started. He started throwing the dough real high! Poof! The dough… >> read more

Kids Are Fun(ny)!

Written by • May 27th, 2009 • Category: Others
Fitzand has just fell asleep after a couple of hours of playing in his room and I suddenly thought of taking some snapshots of his little room. As you can see from the photos below … his room is filled with lots of stickers of animals and such. He loves animals (at least toy and cartoon versions of them) and that’s all because of the movie Madagascar. You can also see a couple of Madagascar posters on the walls … one of them sent to me by Rachel who happened… >> read more

Instant Death

Written by • Apr 25th, 2009 • Category: Others
I hate doing this but again … I had to take a deep breath and send another one of my toy to hell. This time it’s the Diana Instant Back that I bought recently. From some photos I took in Hong Kong, I realised that there are ‘hotspots’ in the center of the photos I took outdoors … especially on sunny days. Checked the internet and found some people complaining about this in Flickr and apparently Lomography has acknowledged this problem and have already ‘redesigned’ a new batch of ‘correction’… >> read more
