Winning Bid

Yeah! Win a bid 2 days ago in one of the infamous buy and sell website in Malaysia, which was

Bought 5 things this week, which was 3 Liquid mouse and 2 binary led watches, which was not mine at all. But I did a free service for my friends to help them to order it, include take risk.

So, I want to share to you all about the possible tricks that used by the seller who sell at an auction.

Most of the time when I see a dirt cheap start price like 1 dollar (assume it worth more than 100 dollar ). Three things come into my mind, it is either promotion of the new product (which is rare), or create a duplicate account to bid own item to increase the price (using two account to bid own item to create an attention to other potential buyer), or the last trick (which is very very common use by nasty seller) triple charge you the courier service( but in some case, it is including handling and packaging).

However, when it comes to an end, no matter what tricks seller put into it, either it is dirty or cheating, it’s still a business!! Everyone want to fight, business is a war.

Borneo Cultural Festival 2010

Shoot shoot shoot… from below and above their eyes level. One good thing about DSLR and EVENT is that you can go to restricted area where it is in front of the stage. There’s no barrier stopping you to shoot.

From what I learnt, there’s no time for you to move your tripod or monopod when taking photos of performances, every second counts. Continuous shooting mode is a must rather than option because you don’t want to miss a single moment. Besides that, on the crop sensor 1.6x camera body, 18mm to 200mm is a good length to capture whole stage and 200mm for the head shoulder shots. Due to the crowd, it is hard for me to keep changing lens, I rather took face shot than anything else, so I stick with my budgeted lens, canon 55-250mm IS lens.

Wedding Slideshow Video

What is the best software for editing video with full of ease and user friendly interface?

Well, I honestly will choose CyberLink PowerDirector and Sony Vegas Pro. Both software work great on its own. Well I not bias about others but based on my 5 years interest in video editing. In the past, I use windows movie maker, which is very easy to use, then move to photodex proshow producer for more special effect. Nevertheless, both of them are good enough for simple slideshow video. But with Cyberlink, you can do beyond your imagination, and hundreds of effect to be unveil, even the infamous function such as reduce shakiness of your recording video, isn’t that awesome?

This is the first video slideshow I did it with cyberlink powerdirector and sony vegas pro. Basically, the bride is my sister :)

new blog

Hey I’m back, yesterday I had a great day with my friends, we watching The legend is born : Ip Man.

Oh btw, you guys should check out my new website,

You might think why I need to have another blog since I can blog anything here. Well I just decided to post about our interest/hobby activities there and with some of my friends input as well. Why? because I would like to make a compilation about it for the future reference.

The purpose for that site are mainly on, share to the world what we are interest in and to help each other together.
How is that possible?

Well, at first you post about your hobby/interest inside the blog, then we will give constructive comment about it, by that we can help you and you can help us. Don’t forget that you can even advertise your personal blog for every post you submit :D

Now, what make me think of this concept? Well our limitation to learn is endless, we should not just limit our knowledge with our surrounding but we should open our mind to the world and learn more what we good at and what we not really good at. These days it’s hard to find a friend who will share every bit of knowledge you need to know, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get it, because in internet, we will meet differences kinds of people with different perspective view in life. As the saying "Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever," is a famous quote by Gandhi.

I have meet few people who totally have no other interest than playing computer games and hanging out with friends during free times. What’s more? They complaint about their life is too boring with these same activities for many years. When I ask them to venture into some new hobby, they might just give an excuse like “I’m not going to do this, because it’s too expensive’ or ‘I don’t see a reason why I need it”. It’s not they just reject it but I think they just need something to impress them what so “awesome” by venture into new interest. That’s the reason why you will see those teenagers like to follow the trend of other people. For example, you change your phone to touch screen phone, then the next day, your friend will buy the touch screen phone as well and this goes on like a chain. The question I’m doubt about are “that really a good venture” for now or future or both? What can you benefit from that trend? Pride or Skill?

That’s not what I’m worry about, but what I most worry about is that when my friend have a minimal interest field. It will make their life have more limitation as they only focus on particular field. For a comparison, I ask my both of my friends, one who have less interest in hobby and the other who are hobbyist. When I ask my friend who have less hobby in their life about what choice do they have beside taking the course they are studying now, he replied me that he have no idea how to move on if that happens. On the other hand, my other friend, he replied me that he have many road to choose in life because he have many knowledge in most of his interest field.

Try to remember and recall back what have done for all these years. It is benefiting you for now and future? Or it is just for enjoyment for now. You will never know what you can do until you try.
