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


Early X’mas Presents

Written by • Nov 27th, 2010 • Category: Toys
I remember a couple of years back, my first Christmas present for that year came early … in the form of a package from Lensbaby. This year … it is like deja vu … a juicy parcel landed at my office the day I started work after my short vacation! That made the first day at work (a little) better. 😀 Too bad it was too late for my trip, otherwise I’d have lugged my DSLR with the (Lens)babies along. Anyway … there is always a next vacation. 😀 There… >> read more


Change Of Mount

Written by • May 2nd, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Guess some of you might already know that I picked up a white Pentax K-x while I was in Japan … just to use with my Lensbabies. Unfortunately the Pentax mount that Lensbaby was supposed to send me has not arrive when I left for Japan … so I couldn’t test/use it there. Anyway … it arrived when I was away and I got it installed the day before. I decided to take a couple of snapshots … in case anyone would be interested. Each lens mount is held by… >> read more


Camera Away!

Written by • Jan 10th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Another weekend came and is almost gone. Spent some time this weekend planning and doing some test shots for my personal photo project and of course most of the time went into quality time with my family. I didn’t shoot much this weekend (except for the test shots) but next weekend will probably see some action put into my photo project. Brought Fitzand to the park nearby for breakfast, followed by a cycling session (with me running after him!) before heading home before noon. My brother from Malaysia (in Kuala… >> read more


Overdue Summary

Written by • Nov 10th, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
I was too busy last weekend (was it ever here at all?) and missed out my usual ‘summary’ blog entry. Hahaha. So I’ll post it now … nothing too exciting though. This is what kept me busy during the weekend. No … not only learning how to use it (I felt like an idiot when I first tried using it … despite working in the IT line for longer than forever!) but working my ass off on Saturday to earn some extra $ to pay for it. Saturday zapped past… >> read more


Durian!

Written by • Oct 19th, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
I’ve never been a fan of durians but Fitzand loves it. He has been asking me to buy him some for about a week already. Each morning before sending him to childcare, we’ll go have breakfast near the market and whenever he sees (or smells!) durian … he’ll ask me to buy some. This morning, I decided to get one for him but had to make sure he doesn’t eat too much of it. The last time he had too much durians for a couple of days … he was… >> read more


20mm Weekend

Written by • Oct 18th, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
Just the other day, a friend was trying to tell me that time seems to be flying fast than ever … because of some stuffs that I can’t comprehend (or give a damn). All I know is the darn weekends do zoom past like there is no tomorrow! Argh! Here I am behind my computer … blogging (and bitching) about another weekend gone by … but I’m sure from tomorrow onwards (Monday!) … time behind the desk will be crawling slower than ever. 🙁 Yesterday was the World Toy Camera… >> read more


Pancake + Pancake

Written by • Oct 13th, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
I’ve always thought the Olympus E-P1 is a very good camera and thought the 17mm f2.8 pancake lens is the only one I’ll ever own for use on it. Unfortunately … along came Panasonic and their GF1, another Micro 4/3 system camera and with it … comes a bright Lumix 20mm f1.7 pancake lens that sent a tsunami into my bank balance. Duh! The lens is not available here in Singapore yet (except when buying it with the camera body), so after quite some consideration … I decided to get… >> read more
