The Garfield of My Neighbour

This is my neighbour’s pet cat, which indeed is more like a Garfield in real. It’s a fat lazy cat with a big tummy and the whole body is covered in its fluffy brown fur. I don’t know the name and even its true sex. My hubby and I are guessing that it could be the Persian cat. Doesn’t it look like one of the them?
It liked to gesture in something funny everytime I pointed my D90 to take the snapshots of it.
This Garfield has very cool and gentle temperament. It likes to lie cozy on the ground outside and never bother about the surrounding. Honestly, it seldom gives response when people attempt to play with it. It would stay quiet and look at you innocently as though you are an annoying clown to it. Well, that’s its style – always being cool.
Oh God. Look at its round, short and clumsy body… as though it is heavy to move. Heehee.
Oops. Is that another blank-and-white Garfield in the cage?

Made-In-Japan Coca-Cola Cans

All of these Made-In-Japan Coca-cola cans were actually given by my good buddy. He bought them from a beverage machine in the airport about two years ago. And, he gave them to me after finish the content inside. He thought I would surely like them. Well, obviously he was right.
I was in fact attracted by its lovely shape. They have been with me for two years, or may be more than that. Somehow, I’m kind of collecting them. The shape is pretty outstanding and honestly, that was the first time ever I saw the Coca-cola cans designed in this funny shape. I have never seen this kind of design in Malaysia yet. I love this shape. They are really unique, aren’t they?

My first Nikon D90, I got it!!

I have got myself a new Nikon D90 which comes with its unique AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens last Saturday. I got it. I got it finally. It’s really exciting and exhilarating to me even until today. Honestly, I still a bit can’t quite believe that I’m holding my first DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex camera) ever in my life. It’s with me now.

Last Saturday, I was actually going to a PIKOM PC fair with Low in Persada, Johor. Low is looking for his Canon EOS 450D while I was aiming for my Nikon D90. We hoped to get a cheaper or any impressive deal from this PC fair; at least we expected it would come with more attractive freebies than the outlets outside. We both browsed through the booths cautiously and asked the salesmen a few questions of our concern.

Sometimes, tell you the truth, I had no idea what should I ask. But still, I had to pretend to act steadily and looked more sensible, as though I had acquired quite some knowledge of DSLR. When the salesman approached me and offering his kindness, I could feel that I was getting nervous with a bit embarrassed. I’m new to the world of DSLR photography. I do know some of it as I have gone through loads of theories from the webs. But the point is, I was lacking of practical experience. Well, I couldn’t bother so much. Therefore, I threw him a few questions and kept nodding when he was explaining. This is what people always do to cover their uneasy awkwardness and so was I.

There were not many booths there this year, much lesser than the one held last year and we only spent about an hour to finish scanning through all of them. The offered DSLR package was more expensive than those given in the shops outside. Like the D90 kit, it cost RM4688 with only DSLR bag, 4GB SD card and a 2 feets height tripod while I could simply get RM4088 with loads more accessories. Huh. I wondered, normally the PC fair used to offer a cheaper range and provide more freebies to attract their customers. But, why on earth it was different this time – higher price with fewer freebies.

Ok. Fine. Since I had given up with the deal from this PC fair, I finally decided to buy the D90 from the Camera Zone in Jusco Tebrau. I browsed the D90 from that shop just about two weeks ago and when I rang up to the salesman before we moved to there, he told me the RM4088 package was still available in shop. So, without a second delay, we both quickly went there, as though the ever cheapest deal would vanish if I came late.

We popped into the shop and I bargained over the deal with the salesman again. I knew the price would not be able to less anymore as it was the lowest limit that he could offer. So I asked him to give me some other freebie besides the ones he offered. He was pretty kind to me and we both had made a great deal eventually – RM4088 for the whole D90 kit which comes along with a DSLR bag, a nice black and cool shoulder bag, 4GB Nikon SD card, 2GB Panasonic SD card, a tripod and a free DSLR photography course from 9am to 6pm. Wow. It’s honestly more worth than the one offered in the PC fair.
Thanks God. Luckily I had done some study about the price of D90, otherwise I could end up with buying a more expensive DSLR. Phew!!
