My Desire

Written by • Jun 9th, 2010 • Category: Others
I ain’t one who is much into the latest phone stuffs but after using my Nokia N86 for some time, I thought maybe I should go check out a new one to play with. Huh? Did I hear iPhone? iPhone 4? Nah. Maybe because everyone is harping about it … I have always tried not to go near one. Don’t worry … I won’t avoid you if you are using one. It is an awesome piece of equipment but somehow … nevermind. Don’t get me wrong. I ain’t one of… >> read more

Written by • Apr 25th, 2010 • Category: Toys
Too tired to go through the photos for the day and update my blog, so I thought I’ll just do a summary of the damage to my wallet instead. We’ll be moving to Disneyland hotel tomorrow, so it will safe from any more temptations. Thanks to Mijonju again for bringing me to all the craziest coolest tempting old film camera shops but I managed to resist temptation from getting one (or more) of them. I did got very tempted … with a Fujica Mini that’s in minty condition but it… >> read more


20% OFF : Chinon!

Written by • Apr 15th, 2010 • Category: Others
After holding a knife at Jimmy … one of the bosses of 8storeytree/ThirtySix, I managed to CONvince him to give some of you Harinezumi/Chinon cute digital toy fans a good deal. He agreed (in fear) to give a 20% discount off the usual price of S$260 for each purchase of the Chinon edition of the Digital Harinezumi! Cool ain’t it? The Chinon edition is actually a rebranded version of the first generation of the Harinezumi camera. This is the only version that allows you to tweak the colors (you can… >> read more


Pretty Got Slim

Written by • Mar 27th, 2010 • Category: Toys
I went through several old Nikon film SLRs in the past and finally ended up with a Nikon FA. It is not that I started photography back in the old days (though I’m kinda old), but the SLRs were bought & sold only after I got ‘trapped’ in this analogue photography stuffs due to Lomography. Anyway, after putting the ring on my Nikon FA (just like I did to my wife), I got a Carl Zeiss 50mm f1.4 lens to be it’s permanent partner. Honestly … in the back of… >> read more


The Tiny Temptation

Written by • Mar 18th, 2010 • Category: Others
It was in 2007, during a trip to Japan … that on a cold (very cold!) night … I walked into a shop and bought the Minox DCC5.0. That was after struggling for a while with myself … trying to decide if I should buy one. Eventually the dark side won and soon the little cutie was in my hands. It is the year 2010 now and I think I have used the camera … for maybe less than 10 times! Nothing too big deal about that until this came… >> read more


Another Busy Saturday

Written by • Feb 6th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Woke up this morning and was greeted by a message on my phone … saying that there will be a ‘photo clinic session’ (more like a talk/intro) about film/toy camera photography at Orchard Central, organized by ThirtySix. Well who wouldn’t wanna go take a look at what Jimmy (the boss) has to say, so I brought my family (yeah … the entire army to go support!) to check out the session at 3:30pm. Here’s a couple of shots taken at the ‘photo clinic session’. Click on the image below for… >> read more


Get Fat Saturday

Written by • Jan 30th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Afraid about losing weight (I’ve to maintain my fat ass ya know?), I spent the entire day doing something to maintain my size. Eat!!! Stuffing my fat face!!! As usual, it is a long breakfast with my family and we had to settle for some Chinese food because the place we originally wanted to go wasn’t open at that time. We came across this cosy corner at AMK Hub, serving some dim sum and a large variety of desserts. Fitzand loved the lotus leaf wrapped rice but found the steamed… >> read more


Upsized Me

Written by • Dec 14th, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
I grew up in Malaysia and now that I’ve settled down in Singapore … the only thing I miss much is definitely the food. Not that we do not have any yummies here in Singapore but those local food here (in my opinion) ain’t as good as those available there. During our trip there last week, of course we did not have to think twice about adding some inches to our waists by shoving some of those food down our throats. Many thanks to my brother and buddies in KL… >> read more


He Came, He Drank, He Bought

Written by • Dec 1st, 2009 • Category: Digital stuffs
I’ve always loved my Digital Buchineko (white version of the Digital Harinezumi) and when the recent Digital Harinezumi 2 was launched (not long after I bought the Buchineko!), I thought I’d be safe and be able to resist the temptation. It was all well until I dropped by ThirtySix (a cool local toy camera store) with a six-pack of beer. Met up with the owner, gulped some cold beer … he let me ‘have a feel’ of the Harinezumi 2. That’s when trouble began! One ‘problem’ I’ve always had with… >> read more
