A Makati Observation

Last Saturday, I went on a trip to Makati because I needed to buy a how-to-speak-German book from Goethe Institut. It was a quite an enlightening trip because I pursued myself to open all my senses while I was there; it’s rare for me to go to Makati, so I made it a point to enjoy every second of it.

First off, I have to say that I don’t have anymore pictures aside from the one above because my DSLR is just too big, my smart phone was stolen last year and my mother didn’t bring her digicam, and I didn’t want to use my mother’s phone because it looks so girly, hence I’d look like a feminine tourist hahaha! However, I still looked like a tourist nonetheless.

My preferred outfit for a normal day would be: a polo shirt/T-shirt, shorts and a pair of footwear that requires no socks e.g. Sanuk or Crocs (YES, I love Crocs). I swear I am not making this next bit up; I could count the number of people wearing shorts in a single hand throughout my 4-hour-stay in Makati. I saw two Caucasians and one Korean wearing shorts; plus me make four people wearing shorts in the Salcedo Village area. I felt so out place when I saw everyone wearing pants. Forget the fact that everyone was wearing business attires; I just felt detached because of my shorts hahaha! Continue reading “A Makati Observation”

Wish list!

So since it’s the “-ber” month already, I guess I’ll fling out my wish list for this holiday season, Xmas! Since no celebrates Thanksgiving.. it would kinda suck. Anyway

The Zumi Digital: I saw the videos that this took and it is FANTASTIC! It’s like having your own little Super 8mm, without the film

Diana F+ lens with Nikon lens mount: The reason why I won’t get the Diana itself is because I don’t wanna buy the analog itself before trying it out, so it’s kinda like a free taste, except it isn’t free

Tokyo Dreamer Strap: Just look at that cool thing! When I get my Holga, I’ll use that for it’s strap :>

The Fisheye Lens Adapter: this costs 1/10th of the price of Nikon’s lenses, so why not?

Keep Calm Print: Everyone Photographer needs this

The Game of Photo-opoly: Kinda obvious

Photojojo! The Book: Great ideas for home-made gifts

White Balance Lens Cap: A must need

iPod touch: Kinda obvious why I want it

Nokia C6: Best consumer Nokia has made so far

Malakai 40: I love longboarding and this is perfect for beginners and cruising

Eye-fi pro x2: A must need, I mean how cool is this thing!

AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G: I love the bokeh on this one @-) I think it’s best one aside from the Zeiss series (duh, how can beat Zeiss)

LC-A+ Instant Back+ Deluxe Kit: The mother of all lomo cams and analogs (bows)

Fisheye No 2 Rip Curl Special Edition: I know I know, why get this if there’s a cheaper-lens-alternative? I just love the look ¬†of film photography, that’s why

SuperSampler – Rubber Blue: It’s a fun camera to have

Holga CFN 120 Green: Well why shouldn’t I?

As you can see, more than half of this is photography stuff. I will however be getting the Nokia C6 for sure (since my phone got stolen.. bleh

Shall update when I remember more stuff
