Hey before I start off right, I got a quick announcement. It turns out my BFM segment that I was referring to in the previous entry wasn't at 7PM today. Will update you guys when I know when it'll go on air. Sorry for the confusion.
It all started when Judd, one of our Filipino Nuffies was down in KL. He was going on and on and on with me about this apparently really kickass camera called the LX-3. Saying how it's the most powerful compact camera ever made etc etc all at a time where I was beginning to feel like I could use a new camera.
So I went with him to a shop at Cineleisure and asked to take a look at one. They quoted me RM1,700 for it and they said it didn't come with an in-built flash. So that was a huge turnoff for me. I ended up not buying it in the end.
Then just last weekend my brother insisted on going to Low Yat to buy something. So I followed him there and decided to pop by a camera shop just to take a look at the LX-3 again. The salesman just needed 10 minutes with me and I was sold!
Turned out that the LX-3 does have an in-built flash and is the best compact ever made according to the salesman. I made a decision to buy it there and then and have been taking lots of pictures.
I'm totally useless at photography. All I know is point and shoot. This camera though knows how to do all the thinking for newbies like me. I got home and I immediately started taking pictures of everything around my room.
Here's a picture of my watch...
a picture of my mouse...
a picture of my thumb...
and as I was running out of things to take close-up pictures of, I ended up taking a picture of one of Princess' curlers.
After I felt as if I've taken pictures of everything in my room I decided to bring my camera out. Went for dinner with my brother, Princess and Elise and I took some pictures of the food at Duck King.
That's right... Timothy Tiah takes pictures of the food he eats. That's something I don't do so often but can you blame me when the pictures look so nice?
Here's a random picture of my tea cup.
And here's our sweet sour pork.
Our roast duck and siu yoke.
Even the bowl of white rice looks nice!
I love my new camera!
I love how my pictures are so much nicer now and it didn't take any skill improvement on my side. Ahh the pleasures of technology.
