Guitar Buying

August 26, 2012

Today is the day of buying Guitar. An ex-colleague has been nagging me, asking me to accompany her for guitar buying just because she was recently fascinated with an old popular Hong Kong group band back in 80’s, called BEYOND

I was started to play guitar since the age of 16 in high school, very similar situation as her, the first Chinese rock group band in Hong Kong with lot of meaningful and inspiring pop song which captivated many guitarist on that time (including myself).

Without wasting time for today mission, Let’s  hunt for Guitar !!!

Her name is Slyvia Sutiono (Indonesian Chinese)

#1 Happy going lucky type

#2 Sometimes she is paranoid (even holding a peanut/choco muffin)

#3 Seen a great deal of Guitar on sales !

#4 And she was entering it…

#5 Testing the guitar and acting Pro

#6 Thanks for the lady teacher/sales who helped to explain and convince (psycho)  her to purchase it

#7 finally, she bought it happily

#8 Let the real Guru show you how to play Guitar

#9 NO !!! I am lousy !

#10 D Major chord

Well done Sylvia, i hope that you are not half-hearted kind of person…please continue your passion of playing Guitar.

One day, you will be able to join my group band as well. Strum and sing along, solo plucking… it is cool right ?!!

PRACTISE MAKE PERFECTION !

 

A gift from a friend (5D Mark II USB)

August 26, 2012

As a saying goes, A Friend in need is a friend indeed. Throughout years of observation, there is an emerging population group in Singapore, who leave their country to look for better opportunity, they force to learn different culture locally in order to embed into the community better. They are overwhelming, friendly, no communication and language barrier with other races…The Filipino

I am glad to have a close Filipino friend as well.

Here was the brief history of friendship…

  • An anonymous -> a newly transferred colleague -> a close friend.

A gift was given by a close Filipino lady who was just came back from her hometown.

I was surprised that my humble camera was still remembered by her. A souvenir of 5D II !!!

Thank you very much !

Gift box in blue ribbon

A Canon EOS 5D Mark II USB … WoW what a surprise !

Orchard Walkaround

August 12, 2012

Walked around in Orchard road, still a long way to polish for street photography skill.

Using a 35mm prime lens, think i need to stick to this lens for the entire year and get familiar with the focal length until the “mature” time that i am able to visualize what subject to be filled up my full frame.

One thing that came to my mine when i was walking down the street,

“…the shorter focal length, the bigger your ball has to be” by a famous hobbyist street photographer ‘Thomas Leuthard‘.

was trying to get the shot with some candid moment, no matter how i still missed it, at least i have seen it right in front of my eyes. Struggling hard and learning to overcome my fear to take photo shot on stranger and passerby. Probably gonna have some alcoholic drink before the shot.

It was difficult to get Eye contact !

Look at him (ear piercing), doesn’t he feel pain, do him ?
