Rocketing In Taiwan : 2

Written by • Nov 28th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
The last roll from the Sprocket Rocket for the trip. As the weather/lighting was pretty crazy/bad, loading a roll of Lomo Xpro 200 slides on the Rocket was a little risky. Fortunately we were in Taichung during that time and the sun was (a little bit) more ‘helpful’. Still there were some ‘forced doubles’ due to bad lighting. Glad most of the shots turned out fine. 😀 I kinda like the doubles in this roll! Fitzand posing with his new soft toy and train … After finish scanning this roll… >> read more


Featuring Fat Finger

Written by • Nov 25th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
Apart from the risky (but fun) first attempts at using the Sprocket Rocket during my Taiwan trip, I threw in this old Konica AA35 that has been sitting in my cabinet for a long time … with a roll of film that I couldn’t remember loaded … into my backpack. The film counter was pointing at ‘1’ and at that point of time … I realised that this is one of the camera that I’ve never got to start using (or test). Gosh! I sure hope it was working!

Taiwan 2010 : The Video

Written by • Nov 24th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Stop right here if you don’t wanna waste 10 minutes of your time watching some random video clips (mostly of Fitzand) that I randomly shot during last week’s Taiwan trip. 😀 The little one loves watching himself in videos … so I spent most of the time shooting video instead of photos this time. I ain’t got too much patience (nor time) to edit videos … so I just pieced them together in maybe an hour last night.… >> read more


Rocketing In Taiwan : 1

Written by • Nov 23rd, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
The Lomography’s latest ‘toy’ … the Sprocket Rocket wasn’t one of the product that made me super excited nor did I rush to grab one. Our friendly (not very pocket-friendly though) people from ThirtySix buzzed me and told me that they reserved one for me (!!!) and stocks were in … the week before I flew off to Taiwan for my vacation. So I dropped by the shop, picked up the Sprocket Rocket (darn long name and I’ll just call it Rocket from now on) and decided to bring it… >> read more


Taipei : The Streets

Written by • Nov 21st, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
About 12 hours  from now and I’ll be (reluctantly) leaving this place. A little too tired to type much now but following the ‘tradition’ of my earlier streetshooting set in Tokyo (here, here, here & here) … I will end this short vacation with some street photos taken with the E-P1 in the ‘grainy black & white’ mode … and just resized for web. I always love the thrill of street shooting. No … not with a long lens hiding from far but to go real close to the ‘action’… >> read more


Let’s Get Fat

Written by • Nov 18th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
It is already the 5th day since I landed here in Taiwan for a year-end break. Gosh. How time flies. Come Sunday and I’ll have to get my fat butt back in Singapore … and the next day … to W . O . R . K !!!!!!!! Strange but true … I wasn’t really in the mood to take much photo since the day I landed. Not only with my analogue cams … but also digital ones. I ended up shooting more short video clips instead. Hahaha! The last… >> read more


Oh Phew!!!

Written by • Nov 13th, 2010 • Category: Toys
Phew!!!! It is Friday night and this must be one of the happiest one in quite a long time. Finally I can take a week off from work and go for a short trip … away from the crazy stack of work that is after me. I’ve yet to pack my stuffs but luckily I still have tomorrow to do so. Guess I’ll have a hard time deciding which camme to bring along because travelling with an active boy on a free & easy trip … isn’t that all easy.… >> read more

Some friends once told me that if they see me whipping out my camera during meals … trying to photograph the food … that will mean that I’m getting restless, bored or simply need to go burn some rolls of film (ASAP). The recent couple of months has been pretty super sucky at work and thus I’ve not much mood to shoot much. 🙁 Damn. I’m mentally super tired from all that stuff and luckily in exactly a week from now … I’ll be on a plane for a week… >> read more


iCanCook

Written by • Oct 25th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
A lazy rainy Sunday. We had friends coming over for dinner and so around 4pm, we started to prepare some stuffs to cook and since Fitzand didn’t wanna take his nap (too excited knowing his favourite uncle was coming over) … we engaged his services to help cut some of the vegetables and such. While he was doing that (while being watched very closely by my fuzzy eyeballs), I decided to video him in action. Sorry for the lousy lighting because Mr. Sunlight wasn’t working very hard today and I… >> read more


Gr8 Sunday!

Written by • Aug 16th, 2009 • Category: Others
Trying hard to stay sober (reason available somewhere at the end of this entry) and post this usual Sunday night’s ‘weekend summary’. There are quite a lot of photos in this entry … I know … but I just didn’t know what to do with the photos I took. Hahaha! We were supposed to join some friends on a visit to the Science Center but changed plan last minute. So early morning we brought Fitzand on train ride to Orchard Rd. for breakfast and of course some shopping later. We… >> read more
