Bo says Hi!

May 27th, 2012 (11:51 pm)

Gosh.. this diving hobby is really going to drain my savings .. lol .. recently bought the Olympus XZ-1 and the accompanying underwater casing from Alan Photo. Can't wait to bring it for the upcoming dives!

Closest thing to a marine creature that I can do a macro on to test out the camera is Bo!

Bo says Hi! (f1.8)

Really like how the XZ-1 meters the colours :) Details come out really crisp too! Can't wait to try this out on the marine critters :D But I'm 99.9% sure the initial shots are going to come out sucky since my buoyancy skills are still not as good yet and I haven't gotten the proper macro wet lenses and strobes.

Happy Lunar New Year!!

January 23rd, 2012 (02:32 am)

Just finished the family Chinese New Year eve reunion dinner, lots of good food!

I helped to prepare the Yu Sheng! Nothing much though, most of the items came prepared in the Yu Sheng package >:D I even bought the shredded veggies from the supermarket! Added Jelly fish, with sesame oil and sesame seeds and topped up with raw Salmon. YUM! Yu Sheng has got to be one of my favourite CNY treats :D

Mom cooked her signature Chicken and Ham dish :) Yummy!

And sis contributed with her homemade pork roast! Crispy Skin and tender meat! YuM :D

There was another toufu & crab dish followed by a steamed fish dish which I didn't take photos of >_<"" So FULL after the dinner!

Since all the cable channels are free during this festive period, caught Hancock and one of Stephan Chow's movie (the one about the beggar sect) on cable :)

So nostalgic watching Stephan Chow's movies hahaha.. so slapstick and hilarious! Really puts me in the CNY mood!

Chawanmushi attempt again

January 2nd, 2012 (10:33 pm)

Had to finish off the mushrooms, made chawanmushi again! Love those fake authentic looking crabsticks :D

Fire was too strong this time round though, egg bubbled at the surface >_<" But it still tasted yummy ^_^

Ever since Flickr pro account ended (back to showing 200 most recent photos *pffftt*) I decided to jump on board Picasa after finding out that image sizes less than 2048 x 2048 pixels do not count towards the free storage!!

But now, I find myself updating the same info on more and more platforms ... OTL ..... (even more so since I'm trying to get make my twitter account more active ><)

Happy New Year!!!

January 1st, 2012 (03:32 am)

Celebrated New Year's Eve at my place this year with my friends and mom :) I think we've stopped going to Marina Bay for the countdown as it is too much of a hassle! (Sign of old age I think??!?)

Anyway, it was a nice and simple dinner (total cost $56!! So much cheaper than eating outside!) We started by meeting at NTUC to buy the ingredients ....

With 4 chefs, we cooked up an international dinner! TH did Vongole Pasta and Pat cooked Tom Yum!

I contributed with Chawanmushi, this time experimented by adding prawns, crabstick and mushrooms :D Nice :D

FL did konnayku jelly, but alas, I forgot to snap a photo of it!! T_T ... TH brought along the Korean movie "You're my pet" ... unfortunately it came with terrible terrible subs (we think it was translated using a translator software ... one of the main character's name was translated into United Kingdom ....@_@;) which made it even more hilarious although I couldn't understand the dialouge 30% of the time... TH did much better though lol! To create that cinema and New Year atmosphere, we turned off the lights when watching the movie and wore light sticks! (so geeky hahaa but fun :D)

Once it came nearer to the countdown, we brought out the sparkling juice (mom can't take alcohol) and ice cream!

Cheers! May everyone have a wonderful 2012! May it be filled with happiness, health, motivation and inspiration ^_^

Christmas crafting!

December 26th, 2011 (02:49 pm)

Felt a little crafty this festive season and decided to make handmade crafts for friends!

Finally discovered a use for my decorative tapes and those magnetic sheets that I bought from Daiso :D

Did a few magnetic bookmarks for my neighbour who always buys nice decorative tapes whenever she sees any ('cos she knows I collect them) Hope she'll like!

Made some more for the rest :) Almost all the materials were bought from Daiso :D Love Daiso! Daiso Banzai!!!!
