Sony Nex F3 with Pentax K Adapter


I got this off eBay (trust_digital2009) recently.

Sadly, my 1st copy never did arrived. Somebody must have curi it as this is the 1st time in all the years of me buying stuff off eBay to have failed.


Waited for 3 weeks and after communicating with the vendor, a 2nd copy was sent; which arrived 2 weeks thereafter.

And so now, am happy to use my FA50/1.4, FA100/3.5 and Tammy 28-75/2.8! And yes, all of them have manual aperture control... :)

The adapter itself

The lock for the K lens; it really does lock into place! Not too sure about the ...er... spring. Feels flimsy.

 The back that fits onto the Nex.
 FA50+Macro Adapter; The problem with aiming for the words is since the Nex will highlight stuff in white... How do you see? But it still turned out fine!
Handheld both; the lens AND the Nex to show that it's actually, not that heavy and to show you guys just how close the Sigma 30/2.8 blades are to the front glass!

Alien life form! Not!
Always wanted to try doing this... took a lot of trial and error... still learning!
The End.

Eric and Mary's wedding dinner

First off: Congratulations to Eric and Mary. It's been a while and a little long an arduous journey, but you made it! :)

Are we having some special guest here?
The wedding dinner was held recently @ Dynasty Restaurant in SSTwo Mall (aka SS2, PJ!)
What we're having... Funny how my focus was on the Prawns and no doubt, it was very satisfying! BIG. Juicy prawns. Especially for my missus who misses terribly those big big prawns that she's soooo use to getting in Sandakan/Tawau; staying in Peninsular has this drawback...
The happy couple with a recently retired colleague (really?) and her son.

Eric: Are they ready for us?
Mary: I think so... or should we wait a bit?
Photographer: What? What???
Okay, let's go!
Blogger: I leave it to your imagination...
Blogger: I STILL leave it to your imagination...
Right, let's have our own party!
And this is how your face should be...!
I guess Sudevan thought it wise to stay out of it...
And obviously somebody was very disgruntled over the poor toasting reception...
Or is he just making sure he heard himself???
The pretty ladies.
Nah, you see ah... this is what we are going to do to Linh...
But somebody's nonplussed about it...
Show us your chopstick skills Linh!

Blogger: These next few sets... 
If you're under 18, please skip!

David: What the...???


Where there's 1 Monkey...
There will be another one...
Who definitely requires a knock on the head.

Come one people, one last toast!
On your marks... Get set!

DRINK!

All the pretty ladies...
Stone? Getting there...
The End.

Lego (250 GT Berlinetta) - Shell Promotion

So here's the last of my set of Lego Shell Promotion!
The sum of all it's parts.

And the finished product.

I must say that this easily looks like one of the best sets I've put together. There's just something cute and quaint about it. Look the that signal & brake light! :P
The End.

Lego (Mini Figs) - Shell Promotion

I had this donated to me by my brother as you can only get them if you buy the V-Power line of fuels. I don't as it's kinda wasted on me 1.2cc engine!
 As usual, the sum of the many figs and 'things' that you will fix up.
 3 mini figs. They will make a nice collection in addition to the massive Star Wars Ep. 4-6 that we already owned... and Harry Potter and POTC.
The End.

Christmas dinner @ Bukit Pantai

It's still Christmas! It hasn't officially ended yet! :)

We were invited last year to attend this Christmas party, but as we were in KK, we gave it a miss. And so this year, we went... With good food and a pleasant view, how not to miss?

So let's take a nice slow walk, shall we? It's going uphill!
Now, this is something you don't see regularly ... or rather, any more! So obviously, Dad was excited!
Missus adding some colour to the Christmas Tree!
Actually, this is a gathering for my Dad's current & past boss and colleagues in his workplace as well...
What's this? Have we discovered the primordial soup?
No laaaa... Just tadpoles and a lightsource. :)

So here's to 2012 from both of us...
Happy Christmas and Best Wishes to 2013!

Avillion @ PD - 2nd Round visit!

Does this look familiar??? It does? Yup. We are back @ Avillion PD. We loved it so much, that we decided we would love a revisit. So, he...
