It's been a while, folks... *Welcome, 2006!*

Hi everyone!

It is finally the year 2006. Already more than halfway into the first decade of the new millennium.

Seems like the New Year celebration came and went without any major news, apart from the spraying foam controversy that sparked letters, blogs and what-have-nots from concerned/outraged men & ladies.

What a way to start off the new year right?

Anyway some updates of my life:

The Camera


If anyone had noticed, I have bought a new camera, the new Panasonic Lumix FZ30. *watches as his wallet grew a large hole*

This is basically a "bridge" camera, meaning that it is a near-SLR camera, with a fixed tele zoom lens (Up to 12x optical!) and manual controls. I am still learning how to operate it well, but I had already put it to good use at the CF event in KL and also at some gatherings and photoshoots. Looking forward to more events and shoots!! XD

As for my two sisters, one of them got the LC43 that I have been using for the past 1 year, and the other got a Lumix FX8 from her boss! O_O;;

Xmas Eve Party

For Xmas Eve, I went to Aries' house for a party. It was fun although I was feeling rather tired, but I still managed to fix her PC problems and then watched a really hilarious show (Wun say what show is that) with everyone. Reached home around 3 plus, and promptly felt like crap for the rest of Xmas itself... X_X

PS. Aries' family birds are very pretty ^_^

The New Year Eve Photoshoot


Something different for a change... I met up with Cherry, her guru Jonny and Reichi for a RE photoshoot at Punggol. Basically we visited the Matilda House, and going to the house is actually challenging (Dirtied myself and all that), not to mention the fact that the place felt kinda eerie even though nothing bad really happened (except for my shoes!! *Sob*).

Jonny is a pleasant surprise. He is a cosplayer but seems rather knowledgeable on all kinds of matter, despite his mild-mannered behaviour. That is why he is Cherry's guru XD.

Well anyway the shoot was kinda successful, so we headed down to the Harbourfront for the next shoot (which is about Gundam Seed). Too bad the rain started to pour heavily so we decided to hang around the place and do some window-shopping.

Ended that day by picking up an artbook from Nevar and then going eastward with Cherry. Didn't go to the countdown because of the event that I will explain below! XD

New Year PLUG and Chinatown




Hahaha! My second PLUG outing (First one being at Mount Faber and Labrador Park), so I had to meet up with the people at 8am at Sengkang (Hence the need to sleep early and all that). Luckily one of the guys had a car so they picked me up from Compass Point.

We later headed to Buangkok's kampong areas after a quick breakfast. It was raining so it was hard for us to take photos, plus the mosquitoes are a lot!!! Thankfully the rain stopped soon, and I am glad to make acquaintance with so many photographers.

Went to Chinatown for lunch with some of the photogs, then met up with some friends for a casual photoshoot, and ended the day with me buying some clothes for CNY and them getting a few odd items or two O_O;;

Farewell to my colleague

Had to say goodbye to a colleague who is a nice lady and friendly to boot. She's headed to Vietnam for a year, although she will be back to visit us once in a while. Hope everything will be great there!!

Narnia



You know, this movie struck a chord within me. Was it the fact that I used to own the Narnian books (Before I gave it away to a friend)? Or was it the fact that the show alludes a lot to Christianity?

The show was pretty faithful to the book itself, even though like most Hollywood productions, many extra things were added to keep the audiences enthralled and excited. My favourite scene was where the White Witch shows up at the end, and what a dreadful warrior she will make!! I love her style of fighting and it gives me an inspiration! *jots down on his notebook*

The kids are quite good too, especially Lucy. As for Aslan.. well, there's a scene where you will feel a slight tinge of sadness, even if you have already read the book.

I look forward for the next Narnian movie. Onwards!!

Ending

All good things must come to an end.

I think I have a few more things to write about, but I can't seem to recall at the moment. Maybe if there is a time for me to actually sit down and think about the events that has occurred before, then I might want to blog about it.

So till then, happy new year!!
