Movie Marathon Month

December 28, 2008 2

I’ve watched more movies this month than the entire 2008 year (I think). My way of celebrating the holidays. Twilight. It’s more of a teenage fan movie. Nothing fantastic and bombastic, just a glamorous vampire love fantasy tale. Personally I felt that the screen adaptation…

I invited Zoe for a photoshoot at a private attic, and got Cammie to help in make-up. Zoe possesses that youthful look and therefore it’s a challenge to transform her into something that she isn’t. But that’s exactly what I want to capture from her.…

Just read from my daily newsletter subscription that IE is now vulnerable to a flaw that has already infected 2 million computers. The problem is: unlike other vulnerabilities where you need to click something or download anything, this flaw simply infects users when they open…

Back to Mayenne

December 14, 2008 0

The last time you’ve seen or heard of Mayenne from my blog is probably in August, so I shall pick up where I left off. She’s growing well, walking and running fine, toilet-trained. Still cannot communicate with words, but has a grasp of all the…

Back to Music

December 13, 2008 2

I have not touched my piano keyboard for months, nor used my sound card to do audio recording. So when Zoe needed to practice her singing for her talent segment of “Miss Veet Standout Challenge 2008” competition. I found that there was something wrong with…

Tsui Ping attended Racheal’s wedding and saw me doing her wedding photography, so she decided to ask me to help out in her dinner banquet. She already engaged Gabriel Mendes as her photographer, but needed another photographer for the banquet. There were 80 tables and…

Back to Studio

December 11, 2008 0

After many many months of absence, I’m back to shoot some studio photography. It’s an area that I have not explored much, because basically, you need a studio and equipment to execute the shoot. Not like outdoor shoot where light is all around you. Emilia…

Yesterday my dad asked me, “You haven’t been updating your blog lately. Busy?” Of all people, it had to be a not-so-techy analogue person that asks for my digital diary to be updated. I have been busy with work and taking a break from the…

Rainmaker

November 23, 2008 1

The next time I needed rain, all I do is to send my car for a car wash. After a week of cumulated dirt, tree sap, and bird shit, I decided to send my car for a wash today before lunch. Actually, I was supposed…

Remember Vanessa-Mae? Britain-based Singapore violinist who was known for her classical-pop fusion style. Here’s a performance of one of her popular track, with live orchestra and church organ.

De-throning the CRT TV

November 10, 2008 2

It didn’t take long for the LCD TV to arrive at my house. And what an impression the old CRT TV made on my TV rack when the delivery men removed it from its throne – moved for the first time in 8 years. That…

This evening, I finally committed to purchase an LCD television, replacing my 8-year-old trusty CRT TV. I have been a strong advocate of analogue television for its, well, analogue quality. Free-to-air channels are still broadcasting on analogue signals, and so, if you watch them on…

Thank you, CAAS

November 6, 2008 2

Months ago, CAAS – i.e. Changi Airport – announced that they are support local artists by playing local works as background music so that they can earn some royalty. In fact, CAAS has already been doing that since 2007. Thanks to their support for Piano…

I read on the newspaper the dramatic Formula One win by Lewis Hamilton and I went to search for the video clip that shows the final lap. Lucky guy. I also found the video clip on Emi’s blog, about Ellen DeGeneres visiting Paris Hilton’s mansion…

Bustling Online Business

November 1, 2008 0

More and more and people around me are involved in online business. A colleague just opened a second online shop. And I just completed a project to photo-catalogue clothes for DJV, a new online shop, with several enquiries in queue. More friends are blogging, not…

Hokkaido Photos

October 29, 2008 2

Going to Hokkaido on a late-Autumn season was a conscious decision. Admittedly, we missed the snow-white winter beauty or the flower-fielded summer romance. What we got was cool weather, fun tour group, and a 7-day journey that will stay with me for a long time…

Back in Singapore

October 26, 2008 0

Just a quick note that I am back in Singapore. 7 full 24-hour days of visual experience for me. I left home last Sun on 19 Oct 3.30am and returned back home this morning at 3am. I brought the Nikon D90 review unit to capture…

Leaving for Hokkaido

October 18, 2008 1

My sister’s wedding lunch is a 12-table affair at the Fullerton Hotel. Great opportunity for the wedding couple to spend more time with the guests, which was the exact intention. Here are some of my favourite moments: More images can be found in my Flickr…

I never felt I needed a vacation that much. I felt totally overworked. I can’t complain, for I need to get the job done. For today and tomorrow, I am attending a seminar on Team Working. Although many concepts sound familiar, it’s a good excuse…
