Reminiscent

This Year end holiday is extremely exciting, i mean boring.

Wake up late in the morning; either listen to music, surf the net, read books and magazine; have lunch; back to music, internet; then dinner. Except for certain days, everyday is the same routine.

Huge camp is a week away! Looking forward to camp. πŸ™‚

This time of the year reminds me of end of last year. It was at the end of December last year, I was on my way back from Youth camp. At the beginning of the journey, my parents called and decided that I would be attending National Service which will begin in just a week time. I wasn’tΒ disappointed, but was sad, the similar feeling you get when leaving a country, or school or the present you have been in and very comfortable with.

Sigh.. one year has come and another year will begin soon.

Awkwardness..

I have been itching to write a post on this.. Lets get to it

This is a place that is full of ‘awkwardness’. A place where weird people with funny sense of humor gather. It deserves to be awarded the best social networking site ever, also a micro-blogging site. Speaking about social networking, its method is very awkward and you don’t actually say ‘Heyy, how’s your day?”.

A place where the phrase ‘awkward moment …’ and ‘like a boss’ are made popular. It’s also a place where you find the ‘troll’ face all over it.

That’s a very big clue. But if you still don’t know, here’s another; It is a place where stealing and re-blogging people’s post is widely accepted and practiced.

Well, I’m very disappointed if you have never heard of it. It’s TUMB1R Mind you, there are no ‘L’ in it, but ‘1’.

According to wikipedia, tumb1r was found in year 2007, that’s 4 years. In that time frame, it has grown so much that as of May 1, 2011 Tumblr included more than 5 billion total posts and over 17.5 million total blogs.

I’m quite new to tumb1r, about 5 months. But, I’m already hooked to it. The best way to know more about tumb1r is to actually own one. All you do after that, is re-blog posts you like. If you have no idea what to re-blog, follow me at SpamWorks. Weird name right, that’s how tumb1r works. My blog is orientated to humor.

I’ll end my post with an Awkward statement – That awkward moment when the awkward moment isn’t even an awkward moment. πŸ˜€

Have a nice weekend! πŸ™‚

Wish You Were Here

In this post, I’ll talk about Avril Lavigne!

Since young, I like Avril Lavigne’s songs a lot. She is the first artist I came to know about. Back then; my favorites are When You’re Gone, My Happy Ending, I’m with You, I Will Be, Girlfriends… I could go on and on. She was my favorite artist together with Simple Plans. She sings well, the lyrics in her songs are meaningful and not too repetitive. Better still, she is pretty! Don’t you think so? πŸ˜€ The best feature she has is her eyes and the pink streak on her hair. I still remember back then, I wish I would marry a pretty Canadian! Because of her, I had the thinking all Canadians are pretty and hot. Haha.. How naive I was. πŸ˜„

If you have never seen her, here’s a picture of her. Now, she no longer spot the pink streak, but a more green streak on both sides!

After a long break, 4 years to be exact; she recently launched a new album, ‘Goodbye Lullaby’. From the album, ‘Wish You Were Here’ and ‘Smile’ is my favorite. Although, the song ‘What The Hell’ is very popular, I find it weird.

 

She is still one of my favorite artist alongside Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, BEP, and Taylor Swift! πŸ™‚

Another Wedding Photoshoot!

Last week and this week have been good. My cousin is back for a while from UK. I ran in the 12km Men’s Health and Shape Run. Nothing much happened.

I had an enjoyable time shooting photos on this particular wedding. I did use the newly bought 50mm. It was fun to use, but I needed a very wide distance between me and the subject in order to take a full or half body photo.

Here are a few of the photos!

Canon 50mm 1.4 – Photos

Picture by kenrockwell.com

I have been playing with my camera fix with my new 50mm, nearly everyday! I just love the Bokeh effect it produces at wide aperture! πŸ™‚

One of the disadvantages of the 50mm 1.4 is its magnification power is low. The minimum focusing distance is 0.45 meter, which is rather far for capturing smaller details. I don’t expect macro capabilities but, I prefer a shorter minimum focusing distance.

Here are another two photos shot with the 50mm 1.4 on a canon 50D. For best view, Please please Click on image for full size. WordPress has difficulty displaying scaled pictures well. It makes a very big difference.

Seiko

F/1.4 @ 1/100; ISO 400

Earphones

F/1.4 1/320; ISO 400

Another issue with this lens, image sharpness drops drastically further from the center. As you can see in the “earphones” photo above, the left earphone isn’t sharp.

I’ll be shooting another wedding this coming Saturday! Very excited! I’m quite sure the 50mm f1.4 will help me produce more stunning pictures! πŸ™‚

Driving!

Just finished my last driving lesson this morning! It went well, engine didn’t shut-off, and I have improved since my first lesson. My driving test is tomorrow. Gee.. I really hope I pass so that I could drive to college myself. Have been relying on my bro and dad to fetch me back and forth everyday.

This week have been good for me, pretty relax! But, I hope I’ll have another week of break! xP haha.. When college starts, I’ll be having my first test soon. So, gonna stop slacking and start facing the books.

I’m surprise that you can actually watch an entire movie on Youtube! What more, a high quality of 720p! I was searching on IMDB for a good movie to watch yesterday and stumbled upon The Prestige (2006). Its rated 8.4 over 10, so I googled it, and landed on Youtube! Amazing… where’s copyright laws?? Youtube is normally very strick. Anyway, the movie is quite good.

Here’s the trailer!

 

Formula 1 is back at Montreal, Canada this weekend! Looking forward to it. πŸ™‚ Ferrari was strong the previous race at Monaco. It’ll be great to see Alonso win this weekend.

Some of you might be wondering what happened to me during my one month plus disappearance. Don’t worry, I did not break a leg or met in any accident.

After the Everest Base Camp trip, nothing much happened except that I ran a 11km Energizer Night Race on 16 April. I believe you are aware of what happened during that night. I was in the middle of it, it was a big mess. Anyway, Energizer refunded the race fee and also mailed us the goody bags. Back to the race, I did little or no training at all for the run. That reason my timing of 1 hour 13 min.

In April too, I started my driving lessons. I’m still in the midst of learning. My driving? Not really good. I bang a pole down while practicing parking. I parked nicely, but I drove out too fast and bang a pole down. My hill slope and 3 point turn is good. So far, I drove very little on the street. So, looking forward to it. Sick of driving in the circuit.

Then in May, College started! What I like most about studying A levels, no assignments!

And, tomorrow, Im gonna run in New Balance 15km. Unlike previous years where the event is held at a notoriously hilly place, this year, The run is held at Putrajaya which should be flat.
