Fuzzy 40!

Written by • Mar 18th, 2011 • Category: Others
Okay … so after maybe half a million pints of beer just now … I still have to struggle to upload few snapshots from a birthday dinner (just an excuse) cum beer session with my family and a couple of friends from ThirtySix just now. What was supposed to be a simple short dinner with Fitzand and wifey … turned up to be a longer ‘dinner’ when Jimmy from ThirtySix buzzed me for a ermmm … ‘short’ celebration. I ain’t one who celebrate birthdays but how can one resist a… >> read more


Game Over (For Now)

Written by • Feb 9th, 2011 • Category: Digital stuffs
A week has passed without work. A week of leave went up in ashes. The Lunar New Year celebration is over (at least for me … or did I even celebrate at all?). Tomorrow will be the first day I get my butt back to work. For once … I’m taking a photo that reflects exactly how I feel now … No Angry Bird was harmed in the making of this photo. Oven thoroughly cleaned too. This was taken using the Lensbaby Composer about an hour ago. I just collected… >> read more


Unboxing Tori

Written by • Dec 30th, 2010 • Category: Toys
I shiver whenever I hear my name being called while waiting at a dentist queue but it is a totally different story when I hear my name being called while I’m busy pounding my keyboard at my work desk. Of course the voice (of the person calling my name) must be from a stranger … and that is usually … the postman! A large parcel arrived today (a little late for Christmas but who’s complaining?!) and it in … the Tori Amos special edition Diana F+ camera! I was dead… >> read more


Come Online Now!

Written by • Dec 16th, 2010 • Category: Others
The darn internet access at my office was dead since morning and it was before lunch that I received a text message on my phone. It went something like … Jimmy : Oei!! Oei!! Jimmy : Where are you? Why are you offline?!! Me : Internet access dead. Why? Jimmy : Come online now!!! Me : But why? Jimmy : Got a new Diana!!! Me : Huh? Soon … the next message from Jimmy came with an attachment. It was one of the photo below … My other Dianas are… >> read more


One For Insomnia

Written by • Nov 2nd, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Not sure of it a case of coffee overdose or there is something else that’s keeping me awake. I should be sleeping earlier after the last couple of long nights (blame the beer) but I just couldn’t do so. Grrrr! I thought I could spend some time tidying up my blog layout but I was too tired to look at PHP codes. After spending a day with software codes in office … I don’t think I should be touching my blog layout stuffs tonight. As I was standing outside …… >> read more


The Pocket Cam

Written by • Sep 23rd, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
Compact cameras like the Natura Classica ain’t exactly compact to me. That’s because they won’t fit into my pocket (although empty 🙁 ) easily. Some months ago I picked up an used GR10 that was in minty condition for slightly less than S$200 and decided to use that as my everyday camera that I can bring around … and be my workhorse. I know there are some yummier alternatives like the GR21 (damn … I saw someone selling one lately) or the GR1v … but I need something cheap, something… >> read more


The Cab Arrived

Written by • May 7th, 2010 • Category: Others
Just steps away from the spot where most of us stand to take our cancer sticks … outside my office … I saw this accident scene that makes me wonder how in the universe can that cab end up there. Sometimes when it is raining or too damn hot … we’ll be waiting for cabs at that shelter too! I mean … the cabs should arrive but NOT THIS WAY! Luckily there didn’t seem to be anyone standing at the shelters (or were they already rushed to the hospital?). Usually… >> read more


Cherry Coke Cam!

Written by • Mar 11th, 2010 • Category: Toys
After avoiding e(vil)Bay for a long long time, I finally went in to lurk around lately because I have some money in my PayPal account. Came across this tiny Cherry Coca-cola 110 camera and it was going for about US$1.50 … and so I placed my bid for it and waited. Somehow nobody seemed interested in this little old cutie and so I won it! Yipee! Now I have another old Coke camera to add to my collection. I remember getting all ‘addicted’ to these old Coke cameras years before… >> read more


Look What I Bagged This Xmas

Written by • Dec 26th, 2009 • Category: Toys
This must be the coolest X’mas ever! I got this present from my wife and she told me to stop using that boring little black camera bag (a small Domke) because it looks so boring. Hahaha! Yay! It’s a Herringbone VOL leather camera bag! Cool! Well she didn’t actually pick it herself but got me to find myself one that I like. Not wanting to spend too much, I settled for a minty used condition one from a photography forum’s buy/sell section. I’ve quite many camera bags in my storeroom,… >> read more
