Thanks to Donovan Chan from Manoah and Samsung Malaysia, I got my hands on the Samsung Galaxy S4!
I really love the box that contains the phone itself . Not saying that I prefer it over the phone, don’t get me wrong. LOL, that’s be so ridiculous – Buying Samsung S4 because of the box, not the phone.
You rarely see a wooden phone box .. Or maybe I seldom buy phones. Lol. But the previous Samsung phones I bought (S1 and S2) came in normal hard cardboard boxes.
Beautiful little touch here, using a wooden box.
Upon opening the box, hunting for the USB cable and charger, Everything was in brown paper, not the usual white glossy paper. I actually find it nicer looking. Besides, not many people read the manual.. At least, I don’t. I would usually Google my problems. (Lazy Syndrome)
Look! Almost everything is wrapped in the recycle paper instead of the irritating black pokey wire and plenty of plastic bags.
Enough raving over my new S4 for now, I’ll brag more soon. :3
What else have I been doing lately?
Assignments.. Minecraft .
What a romantic/dangerous pool I have here.
An awesome cover on the new song by Daft Punk . Honestly, I don’t really like it compared to their old songs. This cover changes everything though.
I realized I haven’t been taking photographs as much as I used to years ago. I don’t know whether to call that a good thing or a bad thing. Like how a Pokemon can forget a move to learn new moves, I forgot how to take photographs of anything that moves and doesn’t move. Kinda suck, but I guess that will make space for new skills. It’s about time i find my muse. Where is she anyway? She’s been gone too long.
This was taken at Dee‘s house. We did a shoot at her place sometime in January. She had the concept and all, I just showed up with my camera and co-modeled with her. I don’t favour it though.. Well, I look like a duck while she looks like a swan, what do you expect me to feel?
Here’s the album link – CLICK ME.
I just had to post a food-related picture. Kampachi was and still will be one of my favourite Japanese restaurants in KL. Freshest seafood you can get, at the best quality, served by the finest chefs.
My baby brother, Jo Shua. I don’t know why I never posted it on my page though.. Or did I? I don’t know, I don’t remember. Pretty crazy edit for a toddler photograph. Felt like I overdid the post-process but I like it this way. Dramatic edit for a drama child.
Honestly, I was never a big fan of guitars. Nobody influenced me enough to really listen to it. Till now. Ha. I learnt a lot, but that’s not even near 1% of anything related to guitars or music. But it’s okay, I’ll keep learning more about it day by day.. And because I don’t know guitars as much, I don’t have that euphoric feeling when i photograph it. Sounds so dramatic, but yeah. I wish to have that specific euphoria whenever I take photographs of anything. I kinda prefer the black and white over the coloured one though. What do you think?
Dream catchers. I took the photograph in Bugis, Singapore.
I wore a dream catcher necklace to college today too, and one of my friends were just telling me about the origins of dream catchers.
One of the stories were about this tribe who are animists (Animism – People who believe animals, plants, inanimate objects and/or phenomena possess a spiritual essence.). There was this little boy who wanted to kill a spider but an elder stopped the child from killing it. The spider whispered into the elder’s ear, thanking her and told her that it’ll repay her by teaching her how to weave a spider web to form a dream catcher. It’ll help to catch all the bad luck and bad dreams.
I don’t remember the details, sadly.. But it was pretty amazing to listen to it over lunch.
Nicholas! A very good friend of mine for over 2 years. Somehow we always clicked. Things get really awkward and weird sometimes, but we get along pretty well.
I was suppose to do a shoot today, but it got postponed, so I dragged Szen and Michelle to do a short shoot with me. It was drizzling…… Okay, It was raining. But we did the shoot anyway. It didn’t turn out brilliant. It was just alright.
And being the curious cat, I went up to take a look at the other area. Under the rain, smart girl! It was darn cold, windy and scary to be alone up there.
I should take more nonsensical photographs, then maybe.. Just maybe, my muse will come back to me.
As usual, sharing another song with you guys.. It hits me pretty hard to the core. Watching the video makes me want to cry even harder. (Am I that sensitive?)
We had nasi padang for lunch . Gosh, the weather was really hot .. It tired us out a lot ..
After that, we walked around. Shopped some more till we couldn’t stand the heat . It was so funny because we were just going into random shops to hide from the sun or enjoy the air cond for awhile . Heh .
We went to Lengian to shop some more .
That retro bikini looks so great. I want . ):
After shopping under the blazinggggggggggg heat , we headed to Tanah Lot.
Journey was pretty long .. So camwhore ._.
I look so tourist-y , it’s so weird . It’s like how the Caucasians buy the tourist clothes and wears them there and then .
On the way, we saw a restaurant selling babi guling. We HAD to stop to try it since the famous Ibu Oka was closed for 3 days .
It was 3pm and we’re having a full meal . LOL . Fat die us . Worst, I had a whole plate to myself . My aunt and mum shared a plate . :X Fat die me !
Babi guling with beer . :3
Looks really weird . Like a cat ran over it a few times.. But it tastes so good .. I really wonder how the babi guling in Ibu Oka tastes.
That’s Pura Batu Mejan
And me posing with the barely visible Pura Batu Mejan .
It’s pretty scary yet soothing to walk towards Pura Batu Mejan . There’s no barriers to keep you from falling on either sides .. But feels .. Great . Scarily great .
On the left side, Pura Enjung Galuh. It was high tide .. So we didn’t go over to check it out .
I got some random animal shots from a secret Snake Zoo in between the souvenir shops. Not kidding.
See? SNAKE ! I wasn’t joking .
First thing we saw from far was this huge bats .. Initially they weren’t moving .. I thought they were sun dried snake shed skins -.-
Mummy looking at everythinggggggg .
Slippers ._. There were rows and rows of them !
A more unique Karimba .
Bought this dream catcher necklace.
Although I find this more beautiful . So much purity in it . But it’s a little too big .
Gosh, her outfit … Coincidentally , another two girls in red walked into my frame when I snapped it.
Counting money to pay is tedious .. Because everything is in thousands and millions, we tend to miscalculate.
We gave 9 thousand short to this shopkeeper, and she took ages to explained to us what was wrong.
DOESN’T HE LOOK SUPER PROFESSIONAL …? COOL BRO!
For dinner, we ate at Ikan Bakar Cianjur in Denpasar.
Lights were gorgeous .. The place is gorgeous .. Even the dressing of the waitresses.
Something like our ABC .. Triple the sugar content.
I’m not gonna post up many of the food shots. . They all look very ugly ._. But their ugly food taste really really really really good .. The one above especially. holymolygoodnessgraciousme. The fish here are so fresh, and the ways they cook them is absolutely out of this world ..
