Smooth as silk...

My maiden attempt at shooting flowing water. This could easily turn into an obsession... Wasai Labi is calling...

Incidentally, I finally took possession of my Canon 50mm 1.8 II today after a month and a half waiting. It seems there is trouble brewing in the ranks of digitalworld and I almost didn't get my lens as the price had suddenly shot up to almost three times what was quoted in the website!

Anyway, after a brief argument, the boss(?) reluctantly honoured the price stated on the website but not without grumbling that it was below cost (yeah... I believe you) and then stating that at this price the lens was WITHOUT warranty.

I think this is absolute bollocks, and have a good mind to mention this lousy trading practice to RTB consumer affairs(?) I think if the tables were turned, the gentleman I was dealing with would be jumping up and down throwing a big fuss cos he looks the type.

Personally, I don't think its very nice to be dissing the person who made the mistake on pricing in front of the customer. I mean, I don't wanna know about it dude. All I know is I ordered it at this price and a deal is a deal. Innit?


  1. Simply mouthwatering Bro~ amazing...

  2. At LEONG's all the camera items are pre-used i.e.use, tested for other customer and bla bla. I like the idea of unopen items and still in a box-fresh. Macam inda rugi rasa nya kalau barang yang inda bakas kana pakai. 2cents

  3. bleh! *my* 50mm 1.8 didn't *arrived* as promised on wednesday this week(eventhou i didn't deposit and such...its just a sudden urge to get 1)

    infact 2 sigmas' is there with a price tag of $550

    oh well...

The House That Jack Built...

I really enjoyed reading Jack's post on Brunei businesses going bust. Absolutely agree that its not all gloom and doom and its just a matter of time before the economy starts pumping again with all those projects slated for the 9th RKN.

My only concern is this, what do we do before then? Aside from jostling for position with arms (and mouths) wide-open, ready for the giant JPKE to award those "mega-projects"?

Anyway, thats boring stuff. I was more excited by the suggestion that Brunei become a retirement village for the rich (and famous?). I like that idea, and I think it can work! Not only as retirement village but also as a residential base for executives from multi-national companies, it would be ideal. With all ASEAN capitals within a short flying distance, these executives could telecommute daily and fly to and from meetings as and when.

In return, they would get a safe, tax-free, and clean environment to bring up their families.
