Hope you guys enjoyed your Christmas. I sure had a blast. Woot woot!

Pictures say a thousand words, so yada yada..

Binbin trying on my self made Mankind mask. Yea. Christmas WWE Theme Party. Awesome or what?

 

My turn! My turn!!

 

Quiet Christmas Eve dinner followed by Udders ice cream 😀

 

Binbin with Sam the Schizo Snowman! The tee came too late and didn’t make it for Christmas though. 😦

 

Rock and Sock connection at Christmas WWE Theme Party. As you can see, Jon was pretty wary of Mr Socko.

 

The Superstars. From L-R.

Front row: Rey “Wee Loon” Mysterio, John “Hsi Hao” Cena, Mankind (me), Ivan Carlito.

Back row: Super “Nicholas” Mario, The “Chye” Undertaker, Paul “Joo” Bearer, Thai “Jiaxi” Boxer, Bret “Kah Guan” Hart, Triple H/Stone “Weihao” Cold, The “Jon” Rock.

Many more awesome photos and videos that are best kept away from the public eye.

 

That’s all from me. Thanks one and all for making this Christmas an ultra memorable one. Cheers!

Keep Fingers Away From Lens

As I said in my previous post. I will be attempting to rid myself of the fat fingers syndrome for a shot at redemption. So here it is!

Tada! Yes! It’s a custom made sticker designed by me! I’m gonna stick it at the back of my UWS so whenever I am about to shoot, I shall be reminded to KEEP FINGERS AWAY FROM LENS!

Something about the design. It’s actually showing the back of the camera and the appropriate way to hold it (in my opinion) such that your fingers don’t get in the way. I used myself as the model for the reference picture.

Yea I know. Nice wallpaper.

Anyway I incorporated the design on a t-shirt, such that the color can be changed along with the shirt color. There is plenty of color choices. Like how the Superheadz UWS have an array of funky colors. Check them out!

Sweet huh. So if you’re an UWS owner stricken by fatfingernitis. Or you would like to own the t-shirt just for the heck of it. Check these stuffs out at my redbubble account.

For the tee, click here. Remember you can choose the tee color to match your UWS.

For the sticker, click here. Unfortunately, I only designed it in blue, since it matches my blue ribbon. If you would like it in any other color just drop a comment. I might just upload another version. Of course, you can also get this as a tee if it tickles your fancy.

Hopefully, this will be good enough to appease the almighty Lomo Lord. Amen.

Celebrating Imperfection

Hi Lomo Lord from above, I have a confession to make…

Please forgive me. For I have sinned terribly by editing some of my photos.

In my defense, I did not add all those fanciful effects. Nor did I make my skin smoother or my chest bigger. I merely used that darn crop tool. I’ve been filled with guilt ever since that day I started.Yes I understand. I might as well throw my Lomo cams away. Just get a decent digital camera and edit the pictures or an iPhone Lomo app.

But..but… It’s all because of my absent mindedness, my fat fingers and the ultra wide lens of my Superheadz UWS.

ARGHHH WHY DO I ALWAYS GET MY FINGERS IN THE SHOT?!?!

All those awesome pics, ruined by those pesky pudgy intruders. I guess my only hope of redemption is to show the world all of my failures and imperfection.

Almighty Lomo Lord!! Please forgive me!

Blooper #1: Left index finger decides to get in the act of capturing cars flying by underneath me.

 

Blooper #2: This time is knuckles’ time to shine while I was busy trying to catch Jady sniffing around the pseudo Berlin Wall.

 

Blooper #3: Nice shot of the reservoir ruined by the right index this time around. Bummer.

 

Blooper #4: Well I have no freaking idea what fingers are those. Thumb? Index?? How did I even get them there???

 

Blooper #5: Clear skies. Blue sea. Sore thumb. Perfect.

 

Blooper #6: Fingers goes Kelong visiting

 

Blooper #7: Knuckles and friends.

 

Blooper #8: I’m saving the best for the last. Look at this. A whole freaking fist. I probably didn’t sinned here. This pic right here is uncroppable.

There is pretty more where those came from. In order to prevent fellow UWS owners and myself from making the same mistake, I have come up with something.

Hopefully, it will prevent others from falling by the wayside like me and I will finally be able to gain closure.

Stay tuned.

Plop!

That’s the sound of your doodie crashing into the water which you had better get used to on Kukup. It is a small fishing village in nearby Malaysia where I recently had a short weekend getaway with binbin (and pesky colleagues in tow, ha!). Big shoutout to Darwin for organizing the trip and being a superduper attentive nanny.

As you would expect from a rural village, the whole 2 days were spent in a laidback manner, sort of like a retiree. In a nursing home with plenty of company. Albeit much more lively.

Of course I didn’t leave home without my cameras. Expended a whole roll of Solaris 100 (thanks lulu for the recommendation, love the colors) on the Superheadz UWS and some of Lucky 100 B&W on the Diana Mini. Let’s check out some of the photos I (and binbin) took.

#1 Upon arrival at Kukup, making our way to the restaurant to have a sumptuous lunch. Highlight of the meal? Coconut pudding for sure. No pic though.

 

#2 The sight that greeted us upon entering the backyard of our accommodation.

 

#3 Caught binbin sitting at the stairs leading out to the sea (or sewage), basking in the sun.

 

#4 My attempt at emo window shot. Fail.

 

#5 After a few rounds of mahjong, karaoke and teabreak we decided to take a walk round the neighbourhood. Pretty steep walkways I must say.

 

#6 Reached a platform and began snapping here, there everywhere as the sun sets to end a peaceful day.

 

#7 The next day, waiting for our boat to bring us to the kelong. Binbin the uber talented and sexy photographer took this awesome pic. I think the subject is part of the reason why this shot turned out so good.

 

#8 Boat came. Millions squeezed onto it. Thank god the kelong wasn’t too far away.

 

#9 Freakishly small feet must have been a prerequisite to stay in the kelong.

 

#10 Net overhead!

 

#11 After our harrowing experience at the kelong, we finally set foot on land and had lunch in a bustling restaurant. We then proceeded to the terminal for our bus home. Loving the symmetry in this pic.

Anyhoo, here are some of my conclusions from this trip.

1. It’s amazing the karaoke machine was on almost all the time. We sure have good stamina.

2. The UWS is an incredible camera.

3. I need to keep my fingers out of the lens range. I should probably stick a sticker behind the UWS to remind me.

4. I suck with the Mini. That makes me sad.

5. Mudskippers are so ewww.

6. Our neighbours have some unique dress sense.

7. Binbin and me totally rock at mahjong.

That’s all I have for this post. If you’re interested, check out the rest of this batch of pics on my flickr

Till next time! 😀

Sam the Schizo Snowman

From what started as a blog to show my tee designs, I know it has been eons since my last one. This cannot go on as my hordes of fans will be so disappointed.

So what better way to make a comeback than dropping a new design just in time for Christmas? Yes! It’s a Christmas theme tee!! Rejoice people because this is my early Christmas gift to you!

Introducing Sam the Schizo Snowman….

Well, Sam has a problem. He is a schizo. One day, he cuts two hole into a purple rag and pretends he is Donatello. Some days, he puts on his Groucho Marx disguise. When he gets into a revolutionary mood, he dons a beret and transform into Che. And there is Gene Simmons from KISS, the Joker, Mickey, Mario and Kenny. These are just a few of his personalities.

If you will like to purchase this shirt (which will definitely make a perfect gift in my honest and definitely not biased opinion), you can do so over here. Over at the site, you can play with the tee shirt color and see how the design holds up in different colored background. You can view a larger version of the design too. Also, feel free to drop any comments if you think any of the characters look iffy. I can always make some changes and upload a new version, if I happen to agree with your suggestions.

Another reason why you should whip out your credit card right now is that redbubble is having a Christmas sale till 25th of December. There is a 20% discount on all white apparel. Find out more over here. I have some other designs that will look awesome in white which you guys may like to check it out. Remember, it’s free delivery if you order 4 or more t-shirts. So gather round all your friends and family for a mass order!

That is all I have for now. I’m gonna kick back and take a well deserved break. Till then. Cheers!
