The Impossible Deadline?

Written by • Sep 2nd, 2011 • Category: Others
I’ve not been updating my blog lately. No … not because I’ve given up on all this fun and picked up fishing or playing Chinese chess with those uncles at Chinatown. I recently took up a challenge to be in some photography/camera project that is scheduled to start in October and I’ve been spending time experimenting, trying to lose the last few strands of hair on my head … thinking of some new ideas & stuffs for it. Today I received an email from the organizer telling me that there… >> 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

Summer Is Here!

Written by • Dec 23rd, 2010 • Category: Others
About a month (or was it two?) ago … while chatting with a friend about dressing up Holga cameras, she asked if I’d be interested to help her do one as a present for a friend of hers. While I usually do not like the idea of having deadlines for doing such things (there is enough bloody deadlines at work!), I somehow agreed. We agreed on a certain fee to cover the camera, the materials and of course a few jugs of espresso to keep me awake … and the… >> read more

What Lens Huh?

Written by • Dec 8th, 2010 • Category: Others
I told myself that I should go get some sleep but my fingers were itchy. I needed to take some photos but it is already late at night. I am too tired to go out for some night photography but I sure need some de-stressing after another crappy day at work. Lately I’ve been feeling super duper ultra mentally tired at work. It is just like the damn world is collapsing on me and if I look around … there isn’t anyone around to help me. All I see are… >> read more

Oh Phew!!!

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

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

E-P1 Has A Little Brother

Written by • Apr 14th, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
Most of you will know that I love my Olympus E-P1 lots and not too long ago when its little brother … the E-PL1 was launched … I did mention that it looks ugly and ain’t too interested about it. A friend recently bought a black E-PL1 and told me that it “doesn’t feel solid enough” … compared to a DSLR(???!!!). I tried not to laugh. Why in the world would anyone try compare the feel of using that entry level ‘grown up point and shoot’ with a DSLR? I… >> read more

It Starts With A Can

Written by • Apr 8th, 2010 • Category: Others
These are probably the strangest things that arrived at my home today while I was at work … Nah! I didn’t order Red Bull by the tons (although I do need tons of beer). These empty cans arrived today because I signed up for the Art Of Can event (details here) and was supposed to go collect these empty cans from their office … but somehow I just didn’t wanna take time off from work just to go get them. Yeah … collection was during office hours only. Fortunately I… >> read more

A New Home!

Written by • Apr 4th, 2010 • Category: Others
It was only last month that wifey told me that she’s got the contractor to come fix up a new cabinet to replace the ‘display wall’ I had in my study room. I used to like the display wall but I’ve got lazy and those photos there has been hanging around since the day I moved in many years ago. I was delighted!!! That meant I could have a bigger display cabinet for my toys! I used to shove them into two small shelves from Ikea, and hid some of… >> read more

Babysitting Marathon

Written by • Apr 2nd, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
It somehow feels like a Saturday night but fortunately it is only Friday night. It’s Good Friday today and hooray to ‘no work’! Hahaha! I was on half day leave yesterday to pick up Fitzand from the childcare. They were doing some minor renovations at the childcare and had to close it for half a day. Yeah … excuses! They just want a longer weekend! Damn. After picking him up, I brought him around … to the photo lab … then to ThirtySix to visit those evil people who sells… >> read more
