Lensbaby Velvet 56 – A Test Drive

Written by • Apr 29th, 2015 • Category: Lead Story
After (some miserable) days of waiting, I finally got to give the new Lensbaby Velvet 56 a quick test drive. As I had only a couple of hours to spare last Saturday, all I did was to run some random shots using that fun (and sexy!) lens. After an hour of testing, I have already fallen in love with it. Yes it is quite different from the previous Lensbaby offerings where you can move the sweet spot (minus the fisheye one which I will someday try purchase when I sell… >> read more


Working Out The DSLR

Written by • Jan 29th, 2013 • Category: Lead Story
My DSLR is probably the most neglected camera in my cabinet and thus I told myself that I should give it some workout yesterday when I brought Fitzand out for some outdoor fun. The weather wasn’t too friendly and we were at the Punggol Waterfront pretty early … at about 230pm. Still we had fun and my old trigger happy habit kicked in and I ended up with tons of photos (of Fitzand).   It almost ended up in a disaster because I forgot to insert a SD card into the… >> read more


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

Had a super wonderful beer session last night on New Year eve … slept about 4am and got kicked outta bed at around 730am.

Wish everyone a wonderful new year and may tons of fun and happiness decorate our lives! Cheers! While we were out shopping a couple of days ago … I picked up 3 packs of those Nano… >> read more


Nano Block Toy Camera

Written by • Dec 27th, 2012 • Category: Toys
I couldn’t find any of these cute little Nano Block cameras in Tokyo when I was there not too long ago and as I was slowly forgetting about it … those (grrr!!!) lovely guys from ThirtySix started carrying this product! They come in red, yellow, white, black and blue and since I was picking an extra set up for a buddy … I went for two sets … a red and a yellow. Candy colored packaging. Yummy! It comes with a small pack of extra blocks for you to have… >> read more


Short KL Trip 2012

Written by • Dec 20th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Took a short trip (but long drive) to Kuala Lumpur last Friday to visit my brother there. As usual … the one having the biggest fun will be Fitzand and was so excited to meet with his cousin sister, Zaydeen again. The kids had big fun during those few days and Fitzand was so reluctant to come back to Singapore at the end of the trip. 🙁 They were playing outside and I saw them trying to fill a pail with water. I … started a water fight! Hahaha! Very… >> read more


Bricks, Photos And Bears

Written by • Dec 10th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Took Fitzand to the Art Science Museum today for the ‘The Art Of The Brick’ and the Magnum photos showcase ‘[Outside] In’ today. We had a great time in both the exhibits! No photo taking is allowed at the Magnum showcase but I was fascinated by Jacob Aue Sobol’s work. You’ve gotta go check it out! Many wonderful works at the exhibit. Here are just a few shots to share … I don’t wanna be a spoiler. Go check it out soon! ‘Disintegration’ … I love this one (above). That’s… >> read more


Bending In Japan 2012 (Part 1)

Written by • Nov 12th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Finally I’ve got internet connection (if I excluded the one I got at the pub last night)! Was putting up at a friend’s place in Yokohama and she don’t recall her Wifi password … and thus I was ‘disabled’ for a couple of days. Now that we’ve checked in at Prince Grand Resort, Hakone … a lovely hotel that we’ll be just stay for one night … I’m gonna make good use of the internet access and update my blog. You might notice some layout change in my blog. I… >> read more


The Last Camera

Written by • Oct 21st, 2012 • Category: Toys
The Last Camera from Superheadz is the latest DIY camera that got some of us all excited and curious about. Picked up a set from ThirtySix yesterday and after Fitzand went to bed … me and my old eyes started work on trying to assemble the many little parts in the package. Due to the many tiny parts … I just can’t risk trying to assemble it while Fitzand is watching TV … as he will keep coming to tell me stuffs like ‘Daddy … Megatron is dead ya know?’.… >> read more


Paint, Pancakes, Pain

Written by • Sep 9th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Keeping my promise to give Fitzand’s bedroom a makeover … I had a little discussion with him and we decided on a Power Rangers themed room since he’s a big fan of those strange heroes in colorful tight clothings who can create explosions behind them just by posing. What I didn’t realise … having to remove the hundreds of stickers on all 3 walls … was a nightmare! That wasn’t actually the biggest (and painful) part. There were a lot of double sided tapes that seemed to be of industrial… >> read more
