One Outta Six Ain’t Bad?

Written by • Mar 13th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Meat Loaf once sang about having two out of three ain’t bad but that isn’t always the case when trying to get a single shot (that you want) when having kiddos as your model. Well … maybe not all of them will cause such stress but I am sure most of them are. Correct me if I am wrong though. 😀 I didn’t get to finish a roll on my compact today and to cure the itch … I thought I could try using my Instax cam to snap a… >> read more


Go On! Take My Life!

Written by • Jan 27th, 2011 • Category: Others
I saw the ‘Love Is In The Air’ special edition of the Diana Mini before I went to bed and said to myself that luckily it ain’t a Diana F+ instead. My credit card bill for the Tori edition has not even arrive and I wouldn’t wanna see another edition of Diana F+ causing more damage to my wallet. I must admit that I got a little excited when I saw the cool looking flash. Luckily I ain’t into the Minis. 😛 So I happily went to bed but when… >> read more


It Is Still Christmas!!!

Written by • Jan 8th, 2011 • Category: Toys
Christmas is over? That’s what I thought until I went down to ThirtySix to collect my ‘girls’ after the recent Diana F+ showcase there. I went home … opened up the box … and in it was something I don’t remember passing to them. It was a box … sized like a normal Diana one … but wrapped up in some nice Lomography gift wrapper. Hmm. I thought it was a prank by those guys there but I almost screamed in excitement when I opened it up! It was a… >> read more


12 Frames Here & There

Written by • Jan 7th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Something shocking happened during my trip to Taiwan recently. I opened up my camera bag … removed the back from my Diana F+ and … OMG!!! I forgot to bring along an empty 120 spool and also the bottom plate that holds the roll of film in place! I removed it to install the instant back some time ago but forgot to place it back! Oh no! For a second my plan to fire at least a roll with the camera went up in smoke. A few seconds later I… >> read more


Unboxing Tori

Written by • Dec 30th, 2010 • Category: Toys
I shiver whenever I hear my name being called while waiting at a dentist queue but it is a totally different story when I hear my name being called while I’m busy pounding my keyboard at my work desk. Of course the voice (of the person calling my name) must be from a stranger … and that is usually … the postman! A large parcel arrived today (a little late for Christmas but who’s complaining?!) and it in … the Tori Amos special edition Diana F+ camera! I was dead… >> read more


Come Online Now!

Written by • Dec 16th, 2010 • Category: Others
The darn internet access at my office was dead since morning and it was before lunch that I received a text message on my phone. It went something like … Jimmy : Oei!! Oei!! Jimmy : Where are you? Why are you offline?!! Me : Internet access dead. Why? Jimmy : Come online now!!! Me : But why? Jimmy : Got a new Diana!!! Me : Huh? Soon … the next message from Jimmy came with an attachment. It was one of the photo below … My other Dianas are… >> read more


Girls On Parade!

Written by • Dec 12th, 2010 • Category: Others
Just the other day … I got a call from Cindy (from ThirtySix) asking if I’ll be fine to put all my ‘girls’  up for a small ‘exhibition’ at their shop. Since all the ‘girls’ have been living in my study room for years already … I thought why not let them go for a short stay with their ‘friends’ at ThirtySix. Of course these are nothing compared to the mouth-watering Detrich collection but I sure hope the ‘girls’ have fun there. 😀 The store is also having some cool… >> read more

Some friends once told me that if they see me whipping out my camera during meals … trying to photograph the food … that will mean that I’m getting restless, bored or simply need to go burn some rolls of film (ASAP). The recent couple of months has been pretty super sucky at work and thus I’ve not much mood to shoot much. 🙁 Damn. I’m mentally super tired from all that stuff and luckily in exactly a week from now … I’ll be on a plane for a week… >> read more


For You, ThirtySix

Written by • Oct 17th, 2010 • Category: Others
Just the other day when those guys from ThirtySix told me that they will be celebrating their shop’s 1st anniversary today … I thought of giving them a little present. Well I’m sure they have all the yummy cameras already on the shelves … so I decided to try ‘dress up’ a camera for them. The biggest problem was to come up with a design/idea immediately … then spend a night or two doing it. I had only a few nights to do it. Panic! Panic! I didn’t have time… >> read more


Dolly? Really?

Written by • Apr 1st, 2010 • Category: Others
UPDATE Oh damn! I must be getting old! I was told that this is actually last year’s April Fool joke! OMG! Sorry for the false alarm. It is an April’s Fool joke or is it real? We won’t know for sure. Saw in Lomography Japan’s website that there is this new Dolly Diana F+ camera. Looks pretty cute but this ain’t a good day to believe what we see. 😀 It has been a while since the last Diana F+ clone appeared … so … ermmm … I’m actually hoping… >> read more
