Loli outing

No, I didn't dress up as a French maid and go prancing around the streets of KK, but my friends did, and these are the results:

Loli Outing

If you are new to this kinda fashion, this is called Lolita fashion. Nothing to do with the novel by Vladimir Nabakov, this fashion originated from Japan. Don't ask me more about this phenomenon, just google for it :D

Update:
Here's another shot from above, but in a cooler environment, heh heh...

So many budu drivers

Why is it today I met so many strange drivers on the road?

Scene 1:
While waiting at the junction in the left lane that says "Give way" (you know, the triangle was painted on the road) a car in front of me was waiting for the traffic light to turn green then he/she will move. C'mon lah, it was a beri jalan lane, so if there's no traffic, you can go out. After waiting more than 10 seconds for the guy to move, someone behind me decided to sound the horn to move, and luckily he/she did move out of the junction after that.

Scene 2:
While waiting at another traffic light, the car in front of me was slowly drifting back!!! I thought the driver would have realised her car was drifting, or that the car would settle into a depression on the road but NOOOOO.... it came closer, and closer...Until I estimate there was about a foot left of clearance, then I sounded my horn. Well, she stopped her car in time, or else I would have to reverse. Luckily there was no car behind me at the time.

Scene 3:
While turning into a junction (a right turn), some gasshole decided to overtake me from the LEFT! Ya, sure you have the momentum, but that is plain dangerous driving! I can't remember what make of car it was, but I think it was a maroon Unser.

Oh well, that's my rant for today.

How have you been driving lately?

Banana Moth

My parents found this in our back garden the other day (a few weeks ago actually) but I haven't had time to blorg about it.

According to my folks, this is a banana moth, quite partial to banana trees. And I can tell you this thing is huge! The wingspan is probably more than 15cm (ya, longer than your school ruler).

Here's a shot of it without flash:

And here's one with flash:

This guy was just sitting there while I was fiddling with my camera and tripod, not to mention 1/2 kg of flashes.

I wish I had a real macro lens... so I can actually go closer than this: (this was cropped)

Photobucket

Next item: macro lens?

P.S. All these shots were made using the kit lens, which goes to show that the kit lens of the Canon 400D is not that bad, if you know how to use it :D
