King Kong 2: Singapore Surf

An unscrupulous organization has captured a huge ass gorilla (rumored to be a descendent of King Kong / by product of the exposure to excessive levels of radiation) from the wild jungles of an unnamed island.

Despite massive public outcry, King Kong (Not So) Junior is being shipped to Singapore to serve as its latest tourist attraction. Eyes brimming with sorrow, KKJ was resigned to his fate until he caught sight of the Merlion.

It was love at first sight. Determined to fight for his one true love, KKJ broke free of his chains and uprooted the Merlion to the horror of the awestruck bystanders.

By now, a legion of army personnel, helicopters and tanks have gathered and surrounded KKJ. Trapped, KKJ ascended Marina Bay Sands with the Merlion in tow while banging his chest and making lots of loud grunting noises.

In a moment of genius, KKJ ripped off the top of the MBS structure and used it as a surfboard to escape to a nearby island. He and the Merlion lived there happily ever after.

So yea, just drop the check in my mailbox once the movie option is taken up. And a mention in the credits would be nice.

You’re welcome.

How (Not) To Panorama on The Diana F+

As mentioned in my Beginner’s Guide to Diana F+, one of the Diana’s funky features is the panorama shot. But make sure you have the correct settings (46.5 x 46.5 frame mask, 16 shots) before you go all panorama crazy.

Here are two of my sample shots which are frankly quite disastrous. Haha, but that’s just the way I like it.

Queenstown Through My Superheadz UWS

Well, not the one in New Zealand or any other Commonwealth countries. It’s the Queenstown right here in Singapore.

It has the honor of being the first satellite town in Singapore and was developed between the 50s and 60s. I remember stumbling onto some recent pictures of the area which left me pretty fascinated. It was old and beat-up. It was so… foreign.

However, the number of visits I’ve ever made to Queenstown can probably be counted on the stubby fingers of my hands. The bulk of it when I was a pimply teenager looking to score a bargain for a pair of football boots at Queensway Shopping Centre. And oh, baggy berms too.

So I wielded my keyboard and did some research on the places I could check out. With my enhanced knowledge, I’m all set and ready to rumble.

All photos taken with Superheadz Ultra Wide and Slim (UWS) on Agfa Vista 100.

Was hoping to check out the surroundings of the abandoned cinema but it has been barricaded. Great start.

This Pair of Photos Are One Year Old

Which says a lot about my tardiness.

Or maybe it’s just a personal choice as I believe photos age like fine wine.

Pick You Later

fire engine access sign Pick You Later | LC-A+ RL | Lomo Earl Grey 100
Having quite the obsession with the reality show American Pickers featuring a pair of professional pickers, Mike and Frank.

Pickers basically buzz around buying a whole load of junk/old stuffs/antiques and sell them to collectors for a profit. Singaporeans would probably label them as a bunch of karung guni men.

Anyhoo one of the common items they keep buying are old and rare signs, with the porcelain ones selling up to $500!

This sign will probably need to wait and simmer for another good 50 years before you can get any substantial dough out of it.
