Short KL Trip 2012

Written by • Dec 20th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Took a short trip (but long drive) to Kuala Lumpur last Friday to visit my brother there. As usual … the one having the biggest fun will be Fitzand and was so excited to meet with his cousin sister, Zaydeen again. The kids had big fun during those few days and Fitzand was so reluctant to come back to Singapore at the end of the trip. 🙁 They were playing outside and I saw them trying to fill a pail with water. I … started a water fight! Hahaha! Very… >> read more


The Damages

Written by • Nov 17th, 2012 • Category: Toys
We decided to skip the trip to the Bandai museum as I read that it only opens to pubic on weekends and Fitzand is only interested to check out the Power Rangers stuffs. As an alternative, we brought him to Hakuhinkan Toy Park near Ginza … one of the largest and best toy stores here in Tokyo. As expected … he was complaining about the long walk and train rides but this time a lot less because I promised to buy him toys. 😀 He saw many of his favourite… >> read more


The ‘Now What?’ Shots

Written by • Nov 15th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Very often I get bored and whip out my camera for some random shots. Then I’ll go back … look at them and go ‘now what?!’. That’s one big problem I have because I do not know what to do with many of the images I shoot. Most of them will involve landscapes though. Hahaha! Since I’m killing some time now while gulping a beer in the hotel room (Fitzand has gone to bed … phew!) … I ‘forced’ myself to upload a few of these ‘now what?’ photos. This… >> read more


RX100 Skinned

Written by • Oct 10th, 2012 • Category: Toys
Probably the only ‘problem’ I find with the Sony DSC-RX100 … the way too slippery matt black surface of the camera body. Maybe it is just my fat clumsy fingers but I sure wished it has some form of rubber/leather skin to make holding it easier. Of course to be safe … I always use a wrist strap with it. I saw some shots (here in Singapore) selling some skins (not sure if they are leather or rubber though) but from the photos I saw (of the cam and skin)… >> read more


Day At The Opera

Written by • Sep 30th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
As part of the Moonfest 2012, the ‘Discovering Chinese Opera’ workshop was meant to introduce the art of Chinese opera to the young ones. It was a parent-child workshop and so after yesterday’s ‘The legend of Nezha’ performance … today I took Fitzand to the Esplanade again for the Chinese opera workshop. It was pretty interesting except for the first half an hour (or more) when the speaker was busy telling us that he is a local TV actor blah blah blah and some pretty weak slides (eg. which ministers/actors… >> read more


Test Driving The RX100

Written by • Sep 30th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Left without a compact digital camera (no … the Leica X1 doesn’t fit into my pockets!) for some time, I got a little ‘poisoned’ when a good friend was trying to CONvince me to buy his Sony DSC-RX100 as he is moving to *evil grin* the Fujifilm X-Pro1. After reading some many good reviews about this compact camera … pretty much convinced that it performs darn well for a compact camera … I met up with him over beer recently. My first impression of the RX100 … light and so… >> read more
