I finally watched The Phantom of the Opera in a Theatre

Finally, I watched Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera live in a theatre. It started some time back, when my younger brother loaned me a DVD of The Phantom of the Opera movie. Sometime last year, I stumbled upon the 25th Anniversary The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall Blu-Ray […]


My First Few Hours Playing Simcity 2013

It started a few days ago, when I stumbled upon an article about the latest release of the Simcity game. This reminded me the old Simcity game which I played during my much much younger days. It was an interesting, open ended game. The player decided how the game would turn out. I think I […]


Star Wars Stamps Collection from Singapore Post

I received my Star Wars Stamps Collection from Singapore Post. There are two sides of the collection book – the Light side and the Dark side. Of course, the Light side refers to the Heroes, the Jedis, the Alliance, etc. And the Dark side refers to the Sith, the Empire, etc. In each page, there […]

Choosing between Canon EOS-60D and EOS-600D

My friend asked me, why did I choose to purchase Canon EOS-600D instead of Canon EOS-60D? I had been using Canon EOS-400D for over 4 years. It had been serving me faithfully. Unfortunately, recently, the built-in flash was not functioning properly and it was too expensive to get it repair. As such, I need to […]


Purchasing My Blu-Ray Player

I was in no hurry to purchase my Blu-Ray player, till I bought my Star Wars: The Complete Saga (Episodes I-VI) [Blu-ray]. Purchasing a Blu-Ray Player was not really an easy task for me. There were many inexpensive Blu-Ray Players out there on the market. But I had other thoughts. My current set-up was a […]


Star Wars Video Collection

That day, I was showing off my recently purchased Star Wars: The Complete Saga (Episodes I-VI) [Blu-ray]. One friend excitedly excited, “You bought this set already! I was figuring out how to convince my wife to allow me to get one!” He carried on, “I am unlikely to watch these discs anytime soon. I had […]


Bought the MechTech Deluxe Toy – Bumblebee from the Movie Transformers: Dark of the Moon

I can’t resist the temptation and bought a toy from the movie Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Last evening, my friends asked me to join them to watch this movie Transformers: Dark of the Moon 3D. I did not watch the first 2 movies. But I had heard that the review was good and I […]


Having Fun with Tokina AT-X 10-17mm f3.5-4.5 Fisheye DX

Finally, I have the opportunity to try out Tokina ATX107PRODXC 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 Fish Eye ATX Pro DX over a weekend. I had been thinking of buying this Tokina ATX107PRODXC 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 Fish Eye ATX Pro DX for quite sometime, because there was a few occasions when I wished I had an ultra wide angle or […]


Taking Photos of Gundam Deathscythe Scale Model

Over the weekend, I took some time to take some photos of my Gundam Deathscythe Scale Models. I wanted to bring out the darkness of Gundam Wing Mobile Suit. So I have to work mostly in darkness and used LED touches as my main sources of light. Sometime back, I did some operations to insert […]
