Today after ballet class, I came home and switched on my PC. Before I even got to see the Windows startup screen, I heard a loud bang and a flash coming from the PC’s power supply unit (PSU in short). The PC then went dead.…

It all started with this photo… (not shot by me! It’s a reference photo) Many months ago, I found this photo in an online photo forum. The model bears an uncanny resemblance to Zoe, a model friend. I showed her the photo and she was…

Baby’s Ill

August 24, 2008 3

The weekend was busy with a half-day photoshoot and the rest of the time with Baby. She was ill after the MMR vaccination on Thursday. Her temperature went on a roller-coaster ride, hovering around 37.5 degrees. Personally I don’t think that’s a concern because most…

Because of the Nikon D700 magazine review, I have planned more shoots that I ever had in the past week. Justifiably-so, because I do not think I will really buy one. Not that it’s no good. It’s fantastic, that is why I am creating opportunities…

D700 Road Test – Deon

August 17, 2008 0

I have been looking around for test subjects to try out the Nikon D700 before I had to return to T3 next week. Sheer luck, one of my ballet pianists was also interested in doing a photoshoot. So we arranged the shoot at her house,…

National Day 2008

August 9, 2008 2

Mayenne celebrates her second National Day. And the House of Leong does it the n-th time in the annual “Dress-in-Red” BBQ Gathering.

After almost 2 weeks of the islandwide theatrical release, I finally watched the Batman sequel, The Dark Knight, today. I’ve read so many blogs about how good Heath Ledger is. I felt that his performance is overrated, partly because he didn’t hog the screen time…

A Quote about Praying

August 2, 2008 0

I love this quote from the movie “Evan Almighty”. This is what Morgan Freeman (as God) said: If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God…

NATAS Travel faire

August 1, 2008 1

Today I applied half day to go to NATAS Travel Fair to book a tour package. Angie and I had already decided to head for Hokkaido to check out the beauty (or lack) of North Japan. October is probably not the most scenic time to…
