Horroscope for today

I'm starting to believe in astrology as the below really reflected my day today!


By Rick Levine

It's apparently your turn to show off your brilliance today and you have no intention of being a shrinking violet. But your creative genius isn't reliable and you might find the spotlight shining on you while you have nothing to say. Don't try to fake it by pretending to share what's on your mind while actually hiding your true thoughts. Once you become comfortable with the idea of opening up, then the resistance to being seen begins to fade.
If you have any ideas in mind, express it, jump with the leap of faith that it will make a difference.

Baby Pug to Genting

First time I took my Baby Pug up to Genting last week. Impressed with the power it gives. Love the Tiptronic GearBox and handling.

I didn't push it that much as I wanted to get the first feel. Shall make another trip up with more aggressive approach :P

iPad @ Genting

Went up to Genting last weekend and happen to see an iPad. Looks very cool when I see them browsing the photo albums.

Although not launched yet in Malaysia, we seem to be able to get it faster than anyone else if we have the money. The entry model is sold at USD499 but I saw one shop at SS2 selling at RM2450 (~USD700).

People would pay for the bragging right to have it first and be the envy of others :P

A Night @ I-City, Shah Alam

A trip to I-City at Shah Alam with the Canon Buggers Group. The place was nice but didn't expect the large crowd.

Unfortunately, I missed the sunset scene. Maybe making another trip there again with another group of people. My advice, reach there before 7pm or else you will have difficulty finding parking space.

Here goes the pictures:

5 reasons to minimize your camera gear

After reading the article by Steve Berardi, my urge of getting new lenses has subsided.

What I need to do now is to maximise my 17-85mm usage (hopefully it will not fail again cause it has failed twice in a span of 2 years - power diagphragm failure) and my 50mm which is under utilised.

Step 1: Learn to compose better
Step 2: Eye for Details
Step 3: Take more pictures and experiment different type of settings according to the len's capability vs the environment.
Step 4: Review the pictures on PC after taking, not just leaving it in the memory card or hard disk
Step 5: Post Processing to bring out the colours if necessary
Step 6: Learn to use external Flash settings! I'm on fully automatic now - ETTL.

Looks like the moon is aligning to me

Your friends and family may get on your nerves today as they become overly assertive. You may not realize it, but you are playing an important role in other people's dramas now. Unfortunately the more you resist, the more aggressive they become. However, you don't want to give in to unreasonable demands. Announcing your intention to remain non-committal until after the weekend could be enough to remove the immediate pressure and give you time to decide your next move.

I'm heading towards i-City Shah Alam this weekend for a night photography. Found this article ( to be useful and hopefully the results this Saturday would turn out as what I envisioned it to be :)
