I havent been updating much about my makan & personal life much, simply coz they didnt really exist for the period of time before the festive seasons. my company the 'evil corporate' decided to milk the life juice outta us before we go for holidays :P i shall post the above two things that happened towards the end of '07.
天津楼 with family 23.12.2007
no i didnt fall prey to the aggressive TV marketing. but my mum did. & so 天津楼 we went one weekend. i was skeptical but the dim sum turned out good. i like their juicy siao mai, coz i ve been eating one too many dry overheated siao mai all this while. sorry about some of the food pics with overdone DOF. i was too eagerly trying out my new 50 mm prime lens. shooting food with aperture wide open is such an overkill.
& sis is such a natural talent with the camera. she didnt went to any design school or photography lessons but she has got a good eye, plus steady hands. it made me seemed like a drug addict with my shaky hands :P
投名状 with Rebecca 19.12.2007
Rebecca has been my secret movie kaki for quite sometime, thanks to her yet again i need not watch 投名状 with a stranger next to me :P btw, 投名状 = Warlords, it is sad but nobody knows what i am talking about whenever i used the chinese title. i really like the movie. i ve high expectation of it & yet it even exceeded my expectation. but i guess the story has a very chinese kinda political culture, i won't be surprised those more westernised may not fully understand why the characters have to do certain things.
i havent got my prime lens yet on that day, the kit lens i used didnt give good DOF effect. nevertheless, Rebecca took some nice photos of me (i mean the photo nice, not the subject). i am paiseh to post too many pics of myself though :P
lastly, no new year resolution/reflection this year. i did one out-of-norm last year but i think i don't want to do anymore. i would appear to achieve more this year if i list it all down but i realise it didnt equate to the sense of satisfaction i had last year. something is not so right about accomplishing things after things, i need to reflect about it more : ) but no, i m not in self pity mode or anything, the going is still strong as ever, just need to sort things out. dai-jo-bu desu! :: daydreamer 12/31/2007 03:23:00 PM [+]
it isnt exactly an easy thing to start a new friendship with my EOS 400D. i m still in the midst of understanding my new pal. some practise portrait shots using the zoom lens in Bugis. it s wonderful, i don't need to do photoshop anymore to my pics, or at least to the minimum. http://www.flickr.com/photos/magichour/ :: daydreamer 12/02/2007 10:33:00 PM [+]
