Our first day of leave spent with this little boy, he’s so delighted we’re both home 😉 He’s learning many words nowadays. So much funtimes! He’s so dramatic too! I was wrong about this lens, it does swirly bokeh beautifully too! hee hee. My favourite of all due to the smooth focusing lens. Fujian 35mmRead more
Parenting for everyone is different and I am experimenting. Telling your toddler no doesn’t work and I wanted to see if punishment will deter him for hitting me. If it was just me – Its ok, but I am concerned if he’d hit his little brother or sister coming soon if he doesn’t start behavingRead more
I love being driven to and from work 😉
Monday brought with it a bright sunny day. Yay! A beautiful sunny day at last after a week of wet weather. Feeling a little cheery – in a few days, my short leave is going to start!
My downtime on Saturday – most of it spent in the toilet (sorry TMI!) but managed to rest and in the late afternoon, took out my latest arrival in the mail – a silver 35mm f1.7 cmount lens which came with several silver rings (I’ll take a photo of them next time) – which turnRead more
.. or so I thought. I’ve been drinking milk to boost my calcium, on top of that remember to take my iron tablets but after 2 hours of consuming any tea/coffee drinks. I think I’ve eaten something wrong somewhere but my Friday was anything but normal. But life goes on though. So, as the afternoonRead more
It was one of those epic fail moments. We were doing the garbage run and there was a beautiful black and colourful bird, along with the normal burung pipit birds, and I wanted to capture it (the black bird) for my day’s photo. But then: 1. My cmount lens Elitar Anastigmat 75mm was mounted 2. IRead more
My favourite subject. I could photograph you all the time, but then I’d annoy you. But I won’t care anyway 🙂 My Instagram is littered with photos of you, of us, and now, of our son too. The photo below is taken by you, and yes, I love it too. I like to remember thisRead more
Late last year I was contemplating a new camera, a compact point-and-shoot with good enough aperture and zoom to be an all-rounder – family functions, travel, artsy bokeh pics and zooming on faraway objects. I saw the Panasonic Lumix LX7 with f1.4. And then the Samsung EX2F, also f1.4. And then, fellow BFFs (that’s shortRead more
Belated New Year Dinner as Lilie was away during our New Year Lunch on 1/1 🙂 This was Pondok Seri Wangi, Gadong.
This is our daily lives, constantly connected to the internet. I’d love to be disconnected sometimes, and learn things by looking it up in a book, not instantly google it. I’m guilty of that too much. Look up a movie synopsis, an answer to any question I might have, or how I might relieve Irfan’sRead more
Every 8 January, I wish my Maktab Sains schoolmates Happy Anniversary. I don’t remember what triggered it. Perhaps I came across our Yearbook and read an article about our first day of Orientation on that date. I certainly didn’t remember it in the beggining. Only in the last 5 years, maybe? Because I know IRead more
When I took this photo, I had an entirely different blogpost written out in my mind, but later that evening, I re-wrote it. Everyday life and chores becomes different coloured flags in your perception. Red flag! Or Green flag (or green light) .. however there are times you want to wave that white flag ofRead more
Outside Anekarasa, Kiulap For 1/1 this time we had lunch with my family, as last year we had a pool bouncer at husband’s 🙂 When choosing the photo of the day, I went “awkward body pose” and “meh, should’ve taken more photos”. And then I figured, this is the reality of us, and I remindRead more
What favourite old thing? My wallet and the bokeh of course! 🙂
Playing with the Oly + cmount lens again. Its a little soft because I’m impatient and focusing manually takes a while and a still subject and/or a steady hand/arm, since you are rocking back and forth to get the subject sharper and not rotating the lens ring. Earlier this month I was contemplating on gettingRead more
