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


Instant Rockin

Written by • Oct 22nd, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
I had to clear the last 7 shots left in my Instax back attached to the LC-W as I plan to bring it along (without the Instax back) to a short trip to Hong Kong tomorrow. What I forgot was … I took out the lens attachment some months back and after two shots … wondering why it was all blur (stupid me!) … I dug the lens attachment out from the drawer and managed to get slightly decent shots outta the last 4 surviving pieces of film and 1… >> read more


Fitzand & Pooh

Written by • Jul 31st, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
I was at ThirtySix yesterday to pick up some Instax Wide film and since Fitzand was with me … I asked if he’d like a pack of the Instax Mini that has cartoons on them. Jimmy almost got me into big trouble when he took 4 packs of the film with different cartoons on them … and placed them right in front of Fitzand. Luckily Fitzand picked only one … the one with Winnie The Pooh design and I escaped from paying for another 3 packs of the highly addictive… >> read more


LC-Wide + Instax + Flash!

Written by • Jul 15th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
I don’t remember anything mentioned in the instruction manual about using flash with the LC-A+/LC-Wide instant back and being a curious fat cat … I mounted the Colorsplash flash on the LC-Wide this evening to see how it performs. It is a little tricky mounting the flash with the Instant Back on (I couldn’t remove the back because I have a pack of film it in) but that’s just a small challenge. I went ‘WHOAAA!’ when I saw the results! It looks a little … or rather … very crazy!… >> read more


LC-Wide & Instant Back

Written by • Jul 14th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
I wasn’t planning to get the Instant Kit for the LC-Wide because I’ve not been too satisfied with the photos that the instant back produce when paired with my LC-A+. However things got a little different when Jimmy (from ThirtySix) gave me a Instant Kit last weekend and told me to bring along my LC-Wide and the instant back … and some of course some film. As I didn’t have much idea of what to shoot at the Farmart Center … most of these are super random shots … with… >> read more


Randoms : 10 July 2011

Written by • Jul 10th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
Another weekend coming to an end and my battery is pretty much flat … with just enough juice to post this entry … then off to bed. Met up with some friends at Farmart this evening … enjoyed some … ermm … ‘fermented malt & barley’ in the bright daylight as well as munching some yummies. Fitzand had big fun feeding goats too! Jimmy (from ThirtySix) gave me an Instant Kit for the Lomo LC-Wide and since I had my instant back with me … I burned slightly over a… >> read more


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


Of Chickens & Poo

Written by • Dec 28th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
Burned some Instax wide film during my recent trip to Malaysia. This first one is my favourite. It was a lucky shot though. I waited for the rooster to walk towards me but I knew that to get a nicer angle … I had to go lower down … but … the ground was peppered with chicken poo. Damn. Eeew! I have enough of those (poo/shit/crap) at work and so I told myself that it was gonna be a ‘don’t think … just shoot’ situation. I was very happy when… >> read more


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


Approaching Four

Written by • Dec 5th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Weeks to go before Fitzand turns 4. Time really flies eh? I wanted to take a few snaps of him with his new toy gun … and asked if he’d like to have his photos taken. He looked at me for a while and ran to my room … went to my desk … reached for my Instanx Mini cam (that he saw a couple of nights ago) and picked it up. I knew some film were gonna be burned. *sweat*. Here are some self-portraits by him … This one… >> read more
