Colorsplash Flash

Originally uploaded by bitslice.

I took a few shots to see whether my new colorsplash flash really worked. Well, as you can see that's where I bought my flash.

I had to exchange for another new one cause I didn't test it the first time. That really wasted my time. Anyway, I've got a working CF now, let's go lomo!

Motor Show

Originally uploaded by bitslice.

A few days earlier, I got a phone call from Khun Pocky at Nissan Krungthai. He was so kind that he gave me free tickets to Bangkok Int'l Motor Show '06.

On Friday afternoon I had some free time so I visited the event at BITEC. I also thought about bringing my camera to take pictures of the "pretty" presenters at each booth.

I used 2 rolls of slide films I'd bought earlier for my LOMO camera so I wouldn't have to buy new negative films. That idea turned out to be a disaster. I havn't touched this camera for so very long time that I just didn't remember its character and how to use it fluently.

As a result: almost all pictures are under-exposed due to my incorrect flash setting. Some are out-focused or blurred. And since I used slide films it's even more difficult to correct the error. Plus it's more expensive processing slides. (Honestly, I really thought they process color negative and color slide films similar ways these days, due to the so-called "digital" technology in labs.)

Fortunately I could get those 2 rolls of film scanned. The lab was so kind that they took time to pre-adjust the colors for me. I got home with the CD and adjusted/resized them a bit more , and then I finally got the finished result. (Thanks to digital technology!) Follow link above to see the pictures.

Yesterday I walked past the infamous Rotiboy bakery. There was a very long line of people waiting just to buy the bread. It's 25 Baht each and the store limits 10 pieces for person.

Personally I think that's crazy. It's not that good and not worth it.

And if that's not insane enough, later I saw a few teenagers carrying bags full of Rotiboy bread walking past me. And I noticed many people asked them whether they'd re-sell the bread. Yes, they actually were re-selling. How much would a bread cost, you might wonder? For half-hour queue the price went up to 55 Baht each!

Bye Bye Sally

I just got back from Krabi last night when Jon called that Sally was gonna leave for her flight attendant training in Dubai. Yes, she will be flying for Emirates. And I thought I'd go say goodbye, well I was at the airport anyway.

Unfortunately, by the time I got out of domestic terminal, she's already at the gate. So, I could only wish you luck, my lovely sister. Good luck and take care!

This morning I was about to write a comment on my friend's blog and I was wondering which one of "วิญญาน" or "วิญญาณ" is the right spelling. Spent a few minutes browsing around Google search result for a dictionary, and to my surprise, the Royal Institute's dictionary is available on-line!

How many people do you know give a damn about word spelling? .. Damn, I must be crazy!
