Instant Birthday

Written by • Jan 9th, 2013 • Category: Fun with film
It is never a good idea bringing Fitzand to the camera shops as he will make me buy him some Instax Mini film with cartoon frames. The last trip to ThirtySix with him resulted in the purchase of a few packs of those cute film but I’ve been forgetting to use them til last weekend … on his birthday. He was delighted to see me loading the pack of film after I finished a couple of remaining plain frame ones. It is a little too early for Chinese New Year… >> read more


Horses, Friends And Fun

Written by • Aug 18th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Had a wonderful day at one of Fitzand’s classmate’s birthday party at the Horse City. The kiddos had a blast there with the pony rides, games and entertainment prepared for them. They engaged a professional photographer & videographer for the event and I was trying very hard to avoid getting in their way (or into their images/videos). Luckily I managed to bring back some snapshots of Fitzand and his friends having fun. Fitzand & the birthday girl. I rush a little as Fitzand couldn’t stay still for long … and… >> read more


Birthday Reloaded!

Written by • Apr 11th, 2012 • Category: Toys
It has been almost a month since my birthday and today … when I was at ThirtySix buying some film in preparation for a short vacation come month end … I received a super duper awesome cool present from those guys there! Well … I was supposed to buy the Sahara Diana F+ to add to my Diana camera family but when I asked for the bill … I was told to pay something less than 50 bucks. I told Noreen (Miun) at the counter that I am buying the… >> read more


Rides, Birthday, Ice

Written by • Mar 18th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Since the childcare/kindergarten was closed on last Friday and I was on leave to look after Fitzand … I took him for a very hot day at the Universal Studios Singapore. He had lots of fun especially at the Transformers ride which he had been looking forward to. Fitzand got to experience 3D and 4D for the first time during those rides. It was funny seeing him go ‘Huh! Daddy! Is that saliva?!’ when a character sneezed and water sprinkled on us. Ermm … Mr Funny suddenly gave me the… >> read more


Glitter Rocket

Written by • Apr 23rd, 2011 • Category: Others
During my recent trip to visit my folks in Malaysia, I packed along my Sprocket Rocket thinking I could fire some rolls there but as I was lurking around the paint section in a hardware shop … I suddenly had an idea to create something a little different as a present for my friend Jimmy (from ThirtySix). I saw some gold paint and thought maybe I could give my Sprocket Rocket a new look and give it to him (and soon go buy a brand new one from him again).… >> read more


Love The Spam!

Written by • Apr 7th, 2011 • Category: Others
Don’t you dare try spam me though. 😀 This is a ‘making of’ video for a ‘Spamera’ … a DIY pinhole camera using an empty Spam can … done by the talented Noreen (aka Miun). She told me about this little project of hers, and she was making this as a birthday present for ‘Queen’ Cyanwater … the famous Lomographer and lady boss of ThirtySix. Noreen did asked if I’d be interested to make one too … and at that time I foolishly told her I’d be interested to try… >> read more


Fuzzy 40!

Okay … so after maybe half a million pints of beer just now … I still have to struggle to upload few snapshots from a birthday dinner (just an excuse) cum beer session with my family and a couple of friends from ThirtySix just now. What was supposed to be a simple short dinner with Fitzand and wifey … turned up to be a longer ‘dinner’ when Jimmy from ThirtySix buzzed me for a ermmm … ‘short’ celebration. I ain’t one who celebrate birthdays but how can one resist a… >> read more


Hijacked Birthday

Written by • Feb 15th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
It is Valentine’s Day today as well as wifey’s birthday. As we do not usually bother celebrating birthdays (except when I need an excuse to gather friends to gulp beer) … we had a simple dinner at a Thai restaurant. After the dinner … I told Fitzand that it is his mommy’s birthday and he was super excited. He made a dash for his mommy and said ‘Mommy! It is your birthday today! I buy you a cake!!!’. Hahahaha! Guess he was excited about the cake instead. So we agreed… >> read more


Deciding On The Decided

Written by • Jan 19th, 2011 • Category: Others
Stumbled upon some images of this Philip Stein watch from their ceramic collection online recently and decided to get one for wifey. Her birthday is still a month away but I decided to get it for her now anyway and hopefully she’ll like it. The guy at the boutique told me that the watch has Natural Frequency Technology inside (WTH is that?!) that helps give better sleep and relaxes the mind (really?). I asked if he has anything that helps one stay awake … and he offered me coffee. Duh!… >> read more


Roar! Splish Splash!

Written by • Jan 6th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
While waiting for the lab to finish processing the couple of rolls that I’ve sent it … and getting them scanned tonight … I thought maybe I could just post up this very short random video clip that I took yesterday at the zoo. Fitzand had a blast there (as you can see from the clips at the pool) and ended up with some new animal toys (again?!) as additional birthday presents. I think he had way too much fun. He was having some dreams about animals (or toy animals)… >> read more
