I have a hamster

Sleepless nights. Coming late to class. Even missing classes. All for the sake of doing something which should have been done 2 days ago.

Don't do it guys. Don't. Do. It.

After today, I have learned my lesson. Next week will be better! (kot)

Closing Time

A couple of things that I want to share di keheningan malam:

1. Age is just a number. Personal belief states that you should never feel that you are too old to be doing anything, or in some cases, too young to be doing something. You should not feel that you have to be 50+ years old and retired to start regularly going to the mosque, or you should not feel that since you're 50+ years old, you are too old to be skydiving (unless you have a heart problem. please don't skydive if you have a heart problem.). Life is too short for you to be worrying about age.

Of course, this by no means justifies you doing stupid shit that harms other people, while you scream "YOLO". For example, throwing water balloons at random passing cars. YOLO. ........yes...... thuper

2. Aini punya cupcakes power gile. Tak sempat nak tangkap gambar dah habis mamam. Well done bebeh. =D

3. I just purchased a lens which cost approx. $1k USD. Some people might think that "mamat ni, senang2 je abis duit. bukannya nak saving". But as Syun so eloquently put it "buy what you want, when you want"..... sort of... Actually I have been seriously thinking about this purchase for at least one year. I investigated every possible pros and cons regarding the lens, reflected on what type of photography I enjoy doing, and I just pretty much felt that this is what I need to take my photog skills to the next level. Trust me when I say this, splurging on this was not an easy thing to do by any means, but I am absolutely positive I won't live to regret this purchase :) Plus, I think that this lens will last me for at least 6-7 years (maybe longer) if I take good care of it. Some people enjoy buying clothes, some people like to eat, some people like buying handbags. I like to buy photo gear. To each his/her own. *shrugs*. Long term investment -> satisfaction in taking photos -> win.

4. Another positive outcome of my (borderline on OCD) research on Canon lenses - if you think you want to purchase a new lens, but you're not sure which you want to get, feel free to ask me, and I am more than happy to help nudge you in the right direction. A motivated photographer -> a happy photographer -> a happier world -> win.

p.p.s Sorry no pics. Too. Effing. Lazy

Today I felt like writing something. I suddenly had the urge to write, and so write I shall.

In true spirit of most of my blog posts, this post shall be random, and therefore will most likely not follow a logical "train of thought". I'd like to think of my posts as little nyamuks - wandering around aimlessly and annoying people until someone gets annoyed enough to smack it and kill it. Yes.

Anyhow, I just thought I'd share with you guys some of my personal beliefs and philosophies on life.

1. Always help other people out whenever possible:-

To me, it's a no brainer. As the saying goes "A friend in need, is a friend indeed". I think that if everyone shared this feeling, we would be so much better off. A little sacrifice on your part might mean the world to other people =B

2. Don't call girls bitches and don't call guys faggots:-

In fact, if possible avoid lah kan nak panggil org bende2 tak appropriate. I know I am guilty of calling orang nama pelik2 jugak, but to me the word "faggot" for guys and "bitches" for girls is really crossing the line. People have feelings too.

3. Be constantly aware of your surroundings:-

This statement can be interpreted in at least a gazillion ways. For example, one might interpret this to mean: watch what you say, when you say it, where you say it and how you say it. *shrugs*. I leave this up to you to decide what this might mean for you.

4. Love your parents. Cherish your parents. :-

Bayangkan they had to raise our little punk asses time kecik2. Berak, kencing random2 kene bersihkan. Makanan minuman kene belikan, siap suapkan sekali tu (Afauhhh). Clothes, toys sume they all had to buy. Hey! They're not even getting paid to do all that stuff, sedar tak? But eventually, disebabkan didikan and kasih sayang from them, you turned out perfectly fine :) So if you haven't thanked your parents anytime recently, call lah diorg. (which reminds me, i need to go call umi and walid lepas tulis blog ni =B)


Ok that's it for today. I bet if I sat down and spent more time to think about these things a whole lot more, I might be able to write a book. Legit. Lol. Obviously ain't gonna happen anytime soon lah kot kan?

I'll try to minimize time between posts. We'll see how that goes.

Yours Truly,

This post is not relevant to you. So don't bother reading it.


This is a "'suka-hati-aku-lah-nak-tulis-ape" kinda post. Kalau salah grammar ke ape ke, whatever lah. aku tak peduli. I just feel like typing something, even though I am absolutely sure it will be pointless, and will not make sense at all, because I think that lately I've been having way too many things circulating inside my head, without any way to express it.

I don't know when I've started feeling like this, but it seems nowadays i'm becoming quite the pessimist. You know, "the glass is half empty" sort of person, who thinks that behind every door lies failure, and more dissappointment. yeah. Sometimes I feel like kalau aku ni orang luar and aku baca twitter aku tuh, I would think that I'm a person with suicidal tendencies. Morose, melancholic. bla bla. fuck my life. that kinda person. lol.

Padehal aku rasa dulu aku ok je. Rasenye kalau kat skola, I'll be the one yang selalu cam happy go lucky, ape nak jadi-jadilah, kinda person. Tapi tak taw kenapa sekarang nih, asyik down je keje. Tanpa sebab. Lawak ah. It's like aku naik this basikal, and then tgh turun downhill tgh laju gile babi. adrenaline rush. fun fun fun fun. tibe2, aku break, then pusing and instead of turun downhill laju2, aku gi naik uphill balik. sbb.....ntah. saje nak peluh2 nak kayuh basikal kasi penat kot. lol.

I'm the type of person yang sebenarnye tak suka tunjuk real emotions. (well except for some situations lah kan). And yet, ironically here I am writing about my emotions. funny. Maybe korang tgk aku ni kat luar happy je, banyak cakap, gelak cam sial, sakat2 orang etc2.. But honestly deep inside, bila time aku dah stop cakap and stop having brainless conversations with people, (brainless conversations are fun) and bile aku sorg2, aku rasa kosong. Emotionless. Macam lately I'm not sure who to talk to. Sebab aku takde masalah luaran ape2 yang major pun. Tapi aku still rasa down. Depressed for some reason. wtfblanket tol. tak make sense. lol. It's like right now the reason why I'm not telling anyone how I feel, is because I'm not sure what I'm feeling. fucking pelik sial.

and sometimes, I also get this feeling cam orang2 around me are all like puppets. or robots. somewhere along that line.
But yeah, now that I've typed all that shit out, I think I can say that right now, I just feel like one foreveralone bastard, who no one gives a crap about. yeap. that's how I feel. haha.

Which concludes today's entry.

Sorry for being morose and sad and depressing... ..no wait, why should I be apologizing on my own damn blog...... yeah, so... i take it back. I'm not sorry. lol. wait...

this is fucking confusing.

I want my double rainbow now. Gotta think happy thoughts.

Pelik kan aku ni? lol.

Hey fish friends,

Does anybody have a vacuum cleaner I can borrow? Because my blog is getting dusty and I sorta need to clean it. (cue for kick drums, snare and crash cymbals)

Yeap, it's been ages since I last updated this poor excuse for a blog. I'll be honest, I actually came really close to writing about something a few times before, but it ended up being a twitter status instead. Twitter is sooo much fun. I can just write whatever that comes to mind, without worrying about paragraphs, and structure and flow and all that funky stuff that you have to think about when you're writing a blogpost. So to all of you bloggers out there who regularly update your blogs, i tip my hat to you sir/maam - you're awesome :)

Anyways, the main reason for my post today (oh I should probably mention that i'm doing this at 1:05am. because I feel like it.) is all because of this baby right here:

Forgive me for sounding like a little kid who just got a bazooka for Christmas, but hey, that's exactly how I felt like unboxing my little baby. :). Also in the video is an underwear commercial. Let's see if you can spot what I'm talking about. (hee~)

Now, you and I both know that every new equipment will be subjected to tests. So, here are a couple of random shots I took with my camera mounted onto the tripod:

(oooo ghost)

(no camera gear test is complete without the mandatory action figure shot. courtesy of Sani. of course :P.)
(shot at f/1.8)

(same composition as above, except shot at f/22. with a blistering shutter speed of 3...seconds!)

(in case you were wondering, it's a Manfrotto 190XPROB tripod with a 498RC2 head. I just absolutely love saying that really fast. It makes you sound so..... cool and...... awesome.....yeah)

That's it for now folks. I'm thinking of doing a couple more test shots tomorrow. Maybe. We'll see. :P


Yours Fishfully,
