For those who has not seen my Facebook status just now … let me first apologize for a big mistake I made today. This goes out especially for those who participated in the ’36 In 12′ challenge today. Somehow I screwed up and after a long day of shooting … I happily tried to rewind my cam just to find that there ain’t no tension in it. Damn! Not sure why but somehow when I opened up the camera back … the film leader was in the canister!!! OMG! I spent the whole day out with my family … making sure I have more stuffs to shoot … and this happened?!!!

I seriously hope this will not stop anyone from sending me the photos they took today. So sorry I can’t be part of this challenge this time but please do send me the photos ok? Send them to me using to

Do you notice that what I typed (above) is a bit different from what I typed (as my status) in Facebook? The reason is because I refrained from posting this entry until I cool down/recover from the shock … and thus no F word is appearing (so far).

It is a funny thing that about 4pm … when I met up with Jimmy (from ThirtySix) and Noreen for beer … Noreen suddenly told me that she had to give up the ’36 In 12′ challenge. I was shocked but she told me that she just realised that her LC-A+ that she had been shooting since 9am … has no batteries in it. I tried to tell her that it ain’t that bad that she found out halfway instead of getting the shock in the end … but then … in the end … I was the one screaming in shock. Argh!

Anyway … for those who took the effort to join the challenge … I do hope you guys can send me the images by mid of April … and I’ll compile and publish them accordingly. 🙂

I did some digital shots today to test out my K-5 … mostly testing it indoors under low light … to see how well it focuses and the noise control. So far I am very happy that it performs pretty well. As a consolation … apart from the nice beer I had with the friends … here are some of the test shots since this morning …

Here are some low light tests with various ISO settings …

Yeah … I was pushing my luck with ISO 51,200. Hahahaha!

These were taken all with ISO 1600 …

I took the two photos below and suddenly went ‘Okay! You are gonna get your nails trimmed when we get home!’ … yeah … and he did. Hahaha!

Some yummies today …

After my recent ‘brave’ attempt at trying Malala Coke … I took the risk and tried some Devil Expresso at TCC today. It ain’t as scary as it looks though. I sure wish they didn’t put chocolate in it but then … without the chocolate … I might be running to the toilet the next minute. 😀 I still love it lots!

Fitzand wanted to part of the action and so I let him snap some photos of the people around. Hahahahaha!

This next photo could cost me my life … so thank God I know how to apply mosaic effect in Photoshop. 😛

Of course Fitzand became the ‘model’ too …

The K-5 is definitely an ‘investment’ I won’t regret!

Okay … time to go try get some sleep … and forget about the big incident today.

I hope those who participated in the ’36 In 12′ challenge had fun doing what they did … and looking forward to receive the photos soon.



  1. Chill ndroo! I had some setbacks too tho! I forgotten to snap throughout the whole day after packing my camera into the bag! 🙁

  2. Well this is weird…I had it in my head that it was Saturday. I loaded the file spent the whole day shooting untip 9pm when I was trying to rewind it…I realised that the film didn’t advanced at all…Then I checked the blog and found that it was actually Sunday…Phew!…I loaded it properly…Sunday…a trip to London….and guess what it stuck at 12th frame…sprockets torn…Anyway I’m going to have whatever’s left developed and submit them.
