Take great pictures with your digital camera (Part 2)


Concluding my take on digital cameras…
1. Batteries: Keep Spares on Hand
Many cameras come with rechargeable batteries. It’s a good idea to buy at least one additional battery (preferably the same model) when you purchasing your camera. Then you can keep on shooting while your spare battery is charging

I opted for a camera which uses the high end AA batteries.

Take great pictures with your digital camera (Part 1)

(My “photo of the month” – getting my son to sit still at one place (and not going for my camera) and getting him to smile. I took almost 10 shots before I got this and it was worth it)
One of my friends “pinjam”ed my camera for some function.

YB Lim to blog and he rocks!


After Shahrir’s “so-called” one sided (and often testing our intelligence) blog, we have finally one from the Opposition Party.
Lim Kit Siang has joined the blogsphere and he is humble enough to ask his readers to call him “Kit” (Picture source: AP).

Now, current event blogging should be picking up heat now that Kit has joined in with his comments and analysis on the politic news (some are also shown in the DAP website).

For this Merdeka, let’s do this…


From the movie “Independance Day“, President Thomas Whitmore gives this speech before the major battle:-
“Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind.

This should inspire us!


As I was reading about an article about the science of Lance Armstrong, I am truly amazed of his achievements: winning the Tour de France for the 7th consecutive victory.

Whilst science may have proven how he could have done, leave no doubt in your mind that it is sheer hard work and having a very positive mind that brought success to him.

Playing Hide and Seek


Hide and Seek. That’s the main game for my son these days…he will hide himself and show himself, smiling when we shout out “Where is Danesh?”

As we are worried that he may hide himself and injure himself, we have managed to reduce his “hiding” places. However he still gets creative.

The zoom power…

My friend has just bought a new digital camera and was unsure about the zoom because there was 2 mentioned – digital zoom and optical zoom.
I checked my photo “database” to show him the difference between a digital zoom and an optical zoom. I did not realise how my digital camera optical zoom came in handy when I took this picture of my sibling way down at the beach in Port Dickson couple months ago.

Same source, same date but different impact


When I was in Taiping, I was watching the news and I could not believe what the Acting Menteri Besar Kedah, Datuk Mahdzir Khalid said about the worsening API reading in Kedah. He said something like this “…tangguhkan dulu pembakaran jerami sehingga masalah jerebu berkurang”.

Just to be sure of what I have heard, I picked this up from Bernama:-

“Di ALOR STAR, Pemangku Menteri Besar Datuk Mahdzir Khalid meminta para petani supaya tidak melakukan pembakaran jerami padi buat sementara waktu ini memandangkan situasi jerebu di negeri ini semakin buruk dengan indeks pencemaran udara (API) semakin menghampiri 100, iaitu pada tahap tidak sihat.

My holiday trip to Taiping – almost a disaster but…

Although I had planned my trip to Taiping way before the haze was creating havoc in the Klang Valley, I was looking forward for the trip as a way of escaping the choking haze in the Klang Valley.

However, just the day before I was leaving for Taiping, the haze decided to migrate itself to North.

Another way to “mask” yourself from the haze


Ha…before I go off for my holidays till mid next week, just wanted to post a photo of my son who hid himself when we talking about the haze. Maybe he found an “alternative” way to filter from the haze (of course, later we found that he quietly been fiddling with the hi-fi system -undercover operation)
