Windows 7 arrives in Singapore Event !

Ladies and Gentleman,

Announcing the arrival of Windows 7 to Asia on 22nd October ! A media event was launched to welcome Windows 7 in Singapore and I was invited by Microsoft and Weber Shandwick to attend this wonderful and exciting event. I would like to take this opportunity to say a Big THANK YOU to Microsoft for organising a wonderful media launch event and Weber Shandwick for inviting me to be part of the media launch !

146

The launch was held at 72-13 Mohd Sultan Road, a great place to launch Windows 7, upon entering inside, it was a great sight to see many different desktops, laptops, notebooks and netbooks, all on display, from various different brands such as Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, iiView, Lenovo, Samsung, Sony and Toshiba, all installed with Windows 7. After my registration and catching up with Ashwin from Weber Shandwick, I began exploring around and started playing with new toys !

147

Soon after, we were ushered inside to another hall, with people from different forms of media, overseas visitors and partners of Microsoft. After settling down, the master of ceremony, Stephen Forshaw, kick start the launch event, a presentation on the history of Windows before breaking up into groups, visiting 4 different lifestyle segments whereby Windows 7 operates and thrives in.

149

They were home lifestyle, outdoors, office and games ! Allan Wu, local TV star was in charge of the outdoors segment, while Eunice Olsen, well known actress, was in charge of the home lifestyle segment ! Visiting the 4 different segments, all of us there had a better insight of how Windows 7 fits into your serious business/working life to leisure/outdoor lifestyle, there is something for everyone ! Windows 7 had made a lasting impression on me, great improvements from Vista. I would go further in-depth into Windows 7 soon, some key points and wonderful improvements.

153

Finally, before leaving from the Windows 7 launch party, there was an awesome gift for us to bring back home, it was a Samsonite messenger bag with Windows 7 logo, containing goodies and guess what ………………………………………………. ……. Windows 7 Ultimate Box !!!!!!!

A Very BIG THANK YOU to Microsoft !!!

Exploring Kallang Park Connector

It was a sunny day in Singapore today with a clear blue sky and beautiful clouds in the sky, the call of photography was very strong and I was thinking where would be some locations for me to go explore and take photos ? Initially, I thought of Labrador Park for sunset photos, however, after some thoughts, I decided to explore Kallang Park Connector after collecting my New Balance Real Run 2009 race pack at Novena Square.

IMG_1113

Took bus 21 from Novena Square and reached Upper Boon Keng, alighted and started my short exploration and photography adventure of Park Connectors. From NParks Singapore, the Park Connector Network (PCN) is an island-wide network of linear open spaces that link up major parks and nature sites in Singapore, bring Singaporeans closer to nature and parks, for the recreational, leisure  and nature related activities.

IMG_1118

Kallang River is an area of rich heritage and history, from its early days of trade and repair industries, followed by housing development and now, redeveloping into a new era of riverside modern living and water activities. The factories, industrial areas and early days housing were still around, giving it a balance of old and modern Singapore. The route to Bishan Park via the Kallang Park Connector was about 7.6km, however, I didn’t cover all and would continue the remaining at another date and time.

IMG_1124

There were different types of leisure and recreational activities seen along Kallang Park Connector, fishing, cycling, running, walking and family and friends gatherings. An aspect of Singapore life that doesn’t seem to show the hectic pace of Singapore’s lifestyle, a peace and tranquil that I enjoyed throughly in this short hike with my camera. Do drop by and take a look at my Flickr photos !

IMG_1149

I look forward to explore more Park Connector Networks across Singapore, either by foot or bicycle, capturing them on photos, enjoying the fun, leisure and nature, sharing with my photojournalistic and travel adventures in heartland Singapore !

A Wedding Helper + Photography Journey

An old friend of many years, good old Nicholas, knew him till date, of 19 years friendship since 1990 when we were Boy Scouts in Dragon Scout Group, settled down with his lovely partner, Shirley and after months of preparations, the wedding day finally arrived with close friends coming forward to help out in his wedding day.

IMG_0961

Since I was asked to be part of the “Brother” contingent of 10 close friends of Nicholas, a.k.a helper, runner, best man…. We put our life, blood, sweat, tears, stomach, physical, mental, negotiation, friendship, hardship, fun, pain ….. all in the aid of Nicholas & Shirley to make their Actual Day Wedding a great event for them !

IMG_1020

Reporting in the morning around 7am at Nicholas home, the contingent drove over to Shirley’s home, whereby Nicholas the Groom would pick up his bride, Shirley. However, before Nicholas can do so, he had to go through very severe tests, obstacles and challenges first, since we the “Brothers” are helpers, the various tasks, tests, challenges fall upon us to share Nicholas burden. Some would call it wedding traditions, although truthfully speaking, it wasn’t an old tradition but more of modernisation.

Some tests, challenges include

– Drinking a concoction of Sour 酸, Sweet 甜, Bitter 苦, Spicy 辣 juices

– “Brothers” leg hair were plucked a.k.a exfoliation

– Push Ups

– Giving Red Packets to allow the door “managed” by the “Sisters” contingent to be opened

IMG_1038

Even though I was a “Brother”, there were times whereby I was able to capture photographs for fun and beautiful “painful” memories. Once the challenges were completed, the wedding couple would proceed to Nicholas family home for the traditional tea ceremony, to the grandparents, parents and relatives of Nicholas family. For the brothers, our main tasks were completed and we get to enjoy the food, drinks and hospitality. After the formalities were done, the wedding couple would return to Shirley’s home again for tea ceremony to the grandparents, parents and relatives of Shirley’s family. With that completed, the 1st half of the Actual Wedding day is completed.

IMG_1036

I went over to Fullerton Hotel with the wedding couple along with Sam, to continue preparation for the wedding dinner in the night, as I am in charge of music and sound for the solemnisation and wedding dinner, the songs were already chosen by Shirley, who spent a lot of time and effort in the planning of their wedding day. After rehearsals and coordinations with the wedding couple, master of ceremony, banquet managers and hotel staff, it was a Go Go Go !! They were finally, legally and officially a married couple !!

IMG_1064

The wedding dinner went smoothly with a little bit of time overshot, the food was great, the ambience and decoration were awesome and very beautiful. By the time the dinner was over, I was very tired and my Canon 30D broke down again, with the pop up flash stuck, it’s back to Canon service centre soon. I wasn’t able to take the night scenes of the Marina Bay from their suite 881 at Fullerton Hotel, just the day scenery. Do check out some of their wedding photos HERE !

IMG_1066

After some rest and chatting, we left for home ….. My heartfelt congrats and best wishes to the newly wedded couple, Nicholas & Shirley !

Aiming for Canon EOS 7D

I am currently a Canon EOS 30D user, it had been my workhorse DSLR for my travel, events, wedding and sports photography. Even going through 3 rounds of servicing at the Canon Service Centre, there wasn’t a time whereby I thought of selling it off. Nevertheless, as my level of photography advances and greater demands, I was always looking at the Canon EOS 1D Mk 2 or Mk 3 as my next DSLR, due to my preference for sports and events photography.

The price of the Canon EOS 1D Mk 3 cost quite a lot and when Canon announce a new DSLR known as the Canon EOS 7D, it got me interested and I researched more deeply into it. In my personal opinion, the Canon EOS 7D is a value for money DSLR with the specs (almost all) of Canon EOS 1D Mk 3 and ONE-THIRD of the price, a hybrid between Canon EOS 50D & EOS 5D Mk 2. Fellow Canon photoblogger Tetanus summed it very well in his blog post, do check it too !

DPReview wrote a preview of the Canon EOS 7D and it was an excellent analysis and write up, do check out their post here ! Canon Singapore also allows us to do a comparison of various Canon DSLRs and I used it to compare between Canon EOS 7D, 5D Mk 2 and 50D, even though it might not be a fair comparison between these 3 models, the Canon EOS 7D is by itself a hybrid and new range of DSLR series (in my humble opinion).

The Canon EOS 7D is probably a hot topic in the current Canon DSLR users, with the various forum discussions and photographers upgrading or changing to the new Canon EOS 7D. I am also busy researching into it, deciding whether to purchase the Canon EOS 7D eventually, with its specs close to the EOS 1D Mk 3 that is excellent for sports and event usage at an affordable cost.

Whether I am getting the Canon EOS 7D, I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Check out my MOO Business Cards !

Since I started blogging from April 2006, the journey started in a simple concept, evolving into a field that brought in great pride and joy, with small success stories, networking, testimonials, new friendships and followings.

IMG_0936

That was a time whereby discussions and debates were raised on whether bloggers have their own name cards ? Well, since I am a blogger, photographer, writer and tapping into internet marketing, social media networking and consultancy. The quest for a photojournalist business card came became even stronger and I started searching for printing services that suits my needs, demands and expectations.

It was through Flickr that I stumbled upon Moo.com, checked out their site and found their customised business cards printing services that allows up to 50 different images to be displayed on my business cards and this suits me perfectly ! All I have to do was to choose 50 photographs from my Personal Favourites Flickr Folder, submitting it to the interactive and easy to use Moo platform, my MOO Business Cards were born !!

IMG_0939

When my MOO Business Cards finally arrived from UK, it was a delightful moment, I finally have my photoblogger business cards ! The quality was great and with my 50 different photographs printed on my Moo Business Cards, the impressions that left on my friends (blogger, public relations companies, social media companies, entrepreneurs, business owners) were good and lasting !

Love my MOO (Photoblogger) Business Cards !!
