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!

Just a short post before the weekend arrives! =)

I've been drinking this collage drink for about a week already.....

It's from this brand, 满点肌, a product from Japan

10 bottles for the price of RM145

According to the SA, this collagen drinks will make your skin flawless after consuming for a period of time. And now after a week of consuming it, I did not see any significant improvement on my face. But one thing I realise is that my nose has become smoother and less blakcheads! Not sure is it the results of this drinks, but to me it's still a good news! =)

Anyway, my main purpose wasn't to buy this collagen drinks at first, I was looking for the eye mask actually, after reading the positive comments from Female magazine. 6 eye mask for the price of RM 155

The SA told me if I buy their collagen drinks, I'd entitled a 40% discount for the eye mask (yea, business tactics) So that's why I ended up buying the collagen drinks (which I never had before, cause I was worried…

Can't think of a title now...

Hi world! It's been a while! Hope you are doing fine! ;)

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
