A trip to North

While most people attended Taiping Heritage Run last Sunday, hubby and I headed to Penang for short trip. Actually the main purpose of this trip is to get a DSLR camera which I've long for.... :D

camwhoring in the car and he entertained me with his usual lansi face

it was a cloudy day... and it rained at Penang when we reached Queensbay mall....

searching and searching, we couldn't find any camera shops there!! only found Sen Q but they din't sell Nikon! we decided to switch to Gurney Plaza but 1st, let's have lunch!

settled at Manhattan Fish Market

100 plus to quench our thirst

chili sauce, mayonese and some garlic

hubby had fish n chips (sword fish)

and I had baked herbs dory fish with chips

while we were on the way to collect our car, we saw this Kodak Express shop and we saw Nikon D5000 in the display cabinet!! :0
walked in to inquire about the price without hesitation and end up.......

tada!! :) finally we bought this at QB itself, saved time travelling. with this new toy, I'll need to do alot practice/reading/exploring on the manual. I'm not a professional now but I'll try to be one in the days to come, muahahah :D

p/s: I took photography course when I was in Uni, but all the knowledges had return to my lecturer! *slap forehead*

  20. Hi Hayley,
    enjoyed reading your short account of your trip. welcome to the dsr club. well to begin with you need to practice and practice. it will be good if you can join those with similar interest on their shooting.try to get those who are still green, as those in the 'pro" league would not be able to spare time to explain to greenhorns like us(yes I am new to this too) then post on your blog, facebook etc. and people might give their view and there you have it. your next shoot will improved.

  21. Jen, to me consider expensive la, but worth to invest as the quality is really different compare to normal digital camera..

    Hi Johnie, thanks for the comment!
    My bro is DSLR user too but since he's working at KL, I could only wait until he comes back to teach me.. But it's true, really need alot of practice!

  22. hi ur new toy edy^^
    so good~
    enjoy it^^
    actually my photo have work with photoshop so that u will see my photo color different~

  23. Hwi Yee, I see.. but your photos all are very nice! I bet the original ones are nice too! ^^

  24. Hi Hayley,
    nikon does conduct workshop from time to time. you may check their website. olympus is conducting one
    also open to other user, but pay slightly more.Here is their link if you are interested

  25. not pro photographer...i also still in learning stage and learn together from others too...

    u buy with standard kit lens rite...did u get flash? important u need is flash ... secondly...i took in manual mode but if u r beginner or intermediate....start to play with P (Program mode), AV (apperture), SV (shutter)... then slowly move to manual mode.

  26. Johnnie, oh really? Thanks for the infor! I shall check it out :)

    Vialentino, but you really take good photos!
    Yep, I bought the most basic one, no flash included, planning to practice with it 1st before upgrade to better lens.
    I've heard the same thing from my friend, should start with Programmed mode ya~
    Thank you for the guides!

  27. mei nice camera...i'm getting it one before year end for my sabah's trip....waiting for my tunggakan pay coming..hopefully soon..settle ptptn and get this one...cheers...

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


I am fine...

... just busy 😅

I really want to blog and blog hop every week but time is really not enough!

I remember when I was working few years ago, I could at least blog during lunch hour, or when workload wasn't that heavy, or when boss was not around.
But after being a full time mum, it seems almost impossible because both kids and house chores have taken most of my times!! 😱

Anyway, just wanted to show face and let whoever still reading this know that I am doing fine =)

I dedicate most of my times to them, no regrets no complaints ;)
Notice the necklace I was wearing? It was a craft work from Aden at school for Mother's Day. There's a number 8 written on it. I asked him why 8 and not other numbers? I was thinking he might says that because his mummy is 'sam pat' (三八) xD But his answer is, because 8 is his favorite number! Phew! Lucky! Hahaha!! (I think too much xD)

Ever since he went to kindergarten, he has improved a lot and I am really thankful and relieved!   Though …
