This month's flight schedule was out a few days ago. I've got even more flights than last month ( which I thought was too many already!). I've been flying for 4 days from April 23rd to 26th, and another 2 days last Fri and Sat. Today's off. Then I'll start next month with 3 days of flights and a day of CBT, computer-based training. How's that?

And since I was free today, I accepted Jack's invitation to join a one-day photo trip to Suphanburi. There were 4 of us; me, Jack, Jesse, and Ning. The weather was very nice, for taking photos, with few clouds and very strong sun (definitely not good for human beings though). We went to an old market, 100 years old, at Sam Chuk. Had lunch there, then moved to Bueng Chawak. Had dinner, then leave for Bangkok.

Very tired, but it's worth it. Took a roll with my new Nikkor lens. I'll post photos later (with more detail, of course). ^^

LHTD: LOMO Home of the Day

This morning I received an email from lomohomes that I just won lomohomes' Home of the Day. It was my first profile wall there consisting of pictures from the very first roll I took with my LC-A. Although a bit surprised cause that profile wall didn't even have a theme--I just put together some nice pictures from my first roll, that definitely sounded great. I got a lot of new guestbook entries from people I don't know and they all just congratulated. Thank you all.

New Calendar

Pit talked about this new service Google Calendar earlier. Sounds nice, isn't it? Now I have an idea of sharing flight schedule of my classmates. Let's see if that would work.

Exchange Rate

Earlier, when I used my Visa card on a different currency, I always thought that the rate is calculated from the bank (financial institute) which issued the card itself.

Well, the rate the bank charges you comes from Visa rate plus "foreign transaction fee" ranging from 0-5%. There is an exchange rate calculator at Visa which you can use to calculate approximate exchange rate for your transaction.

Fisheye's View

Originally uploaded by bitslice.

Just got a new toy camera (again!). It's called fisheye camera. What's special about this camera is it can capture a really wide angle of up to 170 degrees.

I've just uploaded my first roll taken with this camera at Flickr. Check it out!
