His Room

Written by • Dec 12th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
I woke up from a short nap just now and since Fitzand was still in dreamland … I suddenly had the idea of capturing some photos of stuffs in his room. He’s almost 4 now and I’m sure it won’t be too long before all the stuffs (ie. toys & stickers) etc are replaced with some other toys for older kids (don’t scare me by saying ‘gadgets & cameras’) and the Mickey & friends posters might be replaced with some rock star posters (boybands not really welcomed :P). Bikini babes?… >> read more


A New Home!

Written by • Apr 4th, 2010 • Category: Others
It was only last month that wifey told me that she’s got the contractor to come fix up a new cabinet to replace the ‘display wall’ I had in my study room. I used to like the display wall but I’ve got lazy and those photos there has been hanging around since the day I moved in many years ago. I was delighted!!! That meant I could have a bigger display cabinet for my toys! I used to shove them into two small shelves from Ikea, and hid some of… >> read more


Happy Birthday, Fitzand

Written by • Jan 5th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
How time flies! Fitzand has just turned 3 years old today and I took leave to spend the day with him … starting the day with a short birthday party at the childcare he attends. We ordered a Thomas & Friends cake (he personally picked the cake!) and he was super happy to see it yesterday evening when we collected it. This is the first time he’s celebrating his birthday with his friends at the childcare (he hasn’t joined the childcare during his last birthday) and he was super duper… >> read more


Toys R Them!

Written by • Dec 31st, 2009 • Category: Others
Since I can’t sleep and waiting to try shoot the New Year eve fireworks at midnight … I thought I’ll just add the (really) last entry for the year. I love doing online shopping and happened to come across this local web store that specializes in toys (for kids … not the usual ‘toys’ (aka cameras) I buy for myself) called Lamkins. I contacted them not too long ago … looking for a Thomas & Friends character toy because I couldn’t find it in a couple of Toys R Us… >> read more


Lensbaby FE and SF : Unboxing

Written by • Dec 24th, 2009 • Category: Toys
Finally I made it … taking the first step into changing my lifestyle a little by resisting all invitations to go for some X’mas dinners and drinking! I know my plan to start a change is supposed to be from the 1st of January 2010, but I thought I could start doing a little bit of ‘rehearsal’ now. Hahaha! I took my family out for a short nice dinner and came home to play with Fitzand. I also did the unboxing of the 3 ‘toys’ that Lensbaby sent me recently… >> read more


When The Children Rule The World

Written by • Dec 15th, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
Loaded my Holga and thought I’d be shooting a couple of rolls during my trip to Malaysia … but I ended up only firing maybe 5 shots after a whole week! I ended up shooting mostly videos using the Harinezumi 2 and now I’ve to spend time sorting out the short video clips. Duh. After the short video clip featuring macro subjects, here is one that I randomly did … with Fitzand and his cousin sister … Zaydeen as my ‘models’. Guess they both had a great time playing (and… >> read more

Great news for toy/analogue camera lovers in Singapore! The local online store 8storeytree has opened a shop in Sunshine Plaza and we can all now grab goodies there without worrying about online shopping and waiting for the postman. They are officially opened today and I popped by for a quick look and chat with them. It is stocked up with all the lovely toys like the Blackbird, Fly and Diana cameras … as well as some cool old cameras. Cameras and film are not the only goodies you’ll find there.… >> read more


Pulsed

Written by • Oct 12th, 2009 • Category: Others
A couple of months ago, someone from Pulse.sg … a Chinese online magazine contacted me asking if I’d agree to be interviewed about my blog and some Lomo stuffs. I agreed to do it provided it is done through email (I hardly have enough time to even sleep) and in English. Hahaha. So I sent them replies and some photos … and once those are done … they asked me for my name in Chinese. Oh no! I can write it (though ugly) down in paper but how on earth… >> read more


Pool For Dummies

Written by • Oct 11th, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
Fitzand has always been fascinated by pool tables (and balls!) whenever he sees one … usually at the beach bar that we sometimes bring him to. A couple of times we gave him some coins to have a game or two but due to his height and age … hahahaha … all he could do was to push the balls into the pockets with his hands. Today I came across this little pool table and he immediately told me he wanted one. Luckily it costs about S$3.90 and so now… >> read more


Sunny Rehab Fun

Written by • Sep 28th, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
A day at the beach is always fun with Fitzand running around, beer flowing like a waterfall and friends to hang around with. Brought Fitzand to the beach in Sentosa yesterday and he brought along his Bob The Builder ‘friends’ to let them scoop some sand and water. Luckily the weather was great and we all had big fun. It was yesterday that those guys from LomotionSG, a local forum for Lomography and other analogue cam fans had their annual Sunny Rehab outing there. Too bad we couldn’t join them… >> read more
