Isn't life strange?

Isn't life strange?

50mm, f1.7, the bokeh is awesome!

Isn't life strange?
She walk in the dark,
She cries,
I sat beside her,
but nobody's beside her.

Isn't life strange?
How you end up all alone.
I tried to call her,
But there's nobody home.

I got ma'self a tripod! an' a prime!!!!!

Finally got myself a tripod and a 50mm f1.7 prime, now I'm more equipped for dim restaurant shots. But that leaves me with no dough to go for dim restaurant dinner no more. > <

Meet Bluntz, he's gonna be your product release model for some time,
til I found a gf and ask her to be the model instead.

This lens is made circa 1981,
amazing how an almost 30 years old lens still sharper than lens today.
Now it's worth more than it's price when new.

At f2.8 and above, things are sharper than sharp. The future, redefined in 1981.

My new, sexy tripod. If only stupid chinamen chose a better name for their company.
Try Schnieder / Illumair or some weird german names.
Just try to use less of XiaTian / YongTauFoo / BenDan.

Moar pictures in the next few days, don't switch the channel just yet.


A bottle of barley I got from my boss,
by the time i reach home it's fermented so it's actually alcoholic barley.

There's a girl on the ledge,
she ain't got nowhere to run,
Standing outside the window,
hating everyone inside.

Now her life is on fire,
she's getting desperate,
She can blame the world,
but only love,

Can breakerfall.
Only love,
Can break her fall.
But only love, can break her.

Morning view from the apartment.

Fuel price hike: Yeah, I don't like it,though I can afford to pay RM10 for a mililitre of fuel because my kancil can go a gazillion miles with it, but what happens is food price will increase, ini naik itu naik, sumua balang naik. gaji tarak naik, kepara pun naik dara. I hereby pledges to forgo upgrading my pc and buying a macro lens for this month as a sign of protest against the stupid Babi Neraka govt. Not that it has anything to do but, what the heck. > <

Anyway, this morning I wake up sweating, screaming and crying and look out the window, some very magnificent event is happening right outside the house every day which I failed to realize. It's a morning, and it's a beautiful morning so I quickly take out my camera, pushes things aside, finding the battery and memory card, quickly rushes to the balcony to capture this shot, which i think is happening for only 5 minutes. So voila, this is is the only HDR which developed nicely from the 3 sets i managed to take, within the 1 minute window. When I look through the window 3 minutes later, the view is gone.

She's beautiful, ain't it? Enlarge her, look at her properly, so you'll see,
she's not that bad, after all.

As I walked through the empty barren street,
I saw a lonely widow weep her dead husband,
clutching, protecting herself from the merciless cold.
Far on the horizon, glimmer of the sun began to emerge,
the blaring of the annoying war-like praying chant, it feels like morning.
A new dawn has come.
Though I wasn't at the streets,
though I saw no lonely widow,
though the weather is anything but cold,
but a new dawn is here.

Feeling Helpless

"Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken.
If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal.
Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements.
Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness.
But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change.
It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.
To love is to be vulnerable." - C.S. Lewis.

Is this what I've been doing all this while? I don't think so.
Maybe I'm just travelled one too many bad roads.
But I do know what to leave behind.
The memories,
they are no longer.
And these days,
I feel love.
and it's all I need.

Note: Picture taken at Ms. Saigon(makan place), not by me, but by someone else. That explains the picture quality, no?

I went to botanical garden floral 'fest' for the 2nd time. Yeah, it's that awesome. And return with a bonsai plant. The bigger pot is mine, while the other is not mine. Yeah, she's talking about me indeed. Though I write better poem. Oh what the heck. xD

Mine!!! RM15, expensive?
100 pots of this and you can *almost* buy my slr body.

Made of win. And great photographing skill.

Not mine. RM7 so less leaves and less leaf = less win.

In the sun, where you belong.

Some colleague had been distributing links about how having plants in your office can make your sucky mood become less sucky. Well from what I see, it ain't entirely true :P

More pictars from botanical garden when the mood strikes!
