3 Days Away, 2 Troubles

Written by • Nov 20th, 2011 • Category: Others
Three days away from home … three (painful) days without internet access … and I reached back here in Singapore with my email account flooded with mails, my blog guestbook flooded with few spam entries trying to sell me Viagra … and in that pile of unread emails … there were two pretty ‘deadly’ ones! This first one is from a blog reader who asked if I’ll have a ‘sneak preview’ of a Holga panoramic camera (thanks, Erik!) Huh? I thought the pano camera was the old pinhole one but… >> read more

Received an email from Bill … the co-founder & editor of Composing With Images Press and thought this might interest some of you toy camera fans out there. Not only your masterpieces has the chance to be included in a photo book … but you are also doing a great part in helping raise fund to help others. Composing with Images Press (CWiP) seeks photographs taken with toy cameras for a forthcoming photo book that explores, complicates, and represents in compelling ways the concept of Play. All proceeds from the… >> read more


Good News! Bad News!

Good news for all the Lomography/toy camera lovers here in Singapore! Just got notified by ThirtySix that they are having a super great sale from 10th June to 10th July 2011! So what’s the bad news? The bad news is only for our wallets and credit cards! Hey … but then … why not? 😀 They are also having a ‘private film sale’ tonight at 8pm to 9pm. Hmm … maybe I’ll drop by, pick up a bucket of film and then get them to buy me a bucket of… >> 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


Some Digitals

Written by • Dec 21st, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
I has been a while since I shot any other subject except Fitzand on digital and I just had to give my cam some warming up during my trip to Malaysia last weekend. Somehow I only managed a few shots and here they are … Yeah … yeah … yeah … I know … nothing too interesting but that’s about all I could do. Gonna spend the rest of the night working on a ‘dressed up’ Holga that I promised to do for a friend. We agreed on an idea… >> 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


Black + White Arrived

Written by • Aug 5th, 2010 • Category: Lead Story
The postman came knocking today and handed me a parcel from Japan. Yeah … I was pretty excited to receive it because in it … the white edition of the Fujifilm Natura Classica! I struggled for a short while when I heard about this white version and decided to *cough* break my piggy bank for one. I’m pretty broke now and wifey’s gonna kill me when she sees next month’s credit card bill. Sexy in white! For those living outside Japan, you can get your Classica from the Circle Rectangle… >> read more


Holga D?

Written by • Jul 22nd, 2010 • Category: Others
We’ve seen the Harinezumi, the FDC01, the VistaQuest and some other digital ‘toy’ cameras ‘invading’ the scene and thanks to a friend (thank you Sanjay!) who posted a link about this ‘Holga D’ concept camera … here’s something for all the digital ‘toy’ camera lovers to drool over. No LCD? Plastic lens? Hmm … sure sounds promising. There was another digital camera that some claim to be the ‘digital Holga’ … the Yashica EZ F521 … but so far I’m not impressed with what it produces. Maybe all the hype… >> read more


Award & Skins

‘You are #1!!!’ … that’s what Fitzand told me when I asked what this (pic below) thingie he made for me at the childcare was for. Well I know it is for Father’s Day and I was just testing him … but he kept saying (loudly!) … ‘You are #1!!!’. The funny thing was that we were having dinner outside and that caused people from the other tables to look over. Embarassing! Hahaha! I don’t need to be #1 as long as we are happy … although I sure do… >> read more
