chase jarvis & the new nikon d90

i'm a canon girl ... but that doesn't mean i can't get excited when a cool camera comes on board ... even if it's not a canon! :)

the thing is ... after having been taking pictures for these past 3 years and loving every moment of it, i love cool cameras period. just ordered a $25 holga the other day and can't wait to try it. meanwhile ... let the nikon d90 has its shining moment today.

friday night happiness

it's friday, and not just any friday but the one linked with a 3-day weekend. i'm ecstatic. about to head out for a late dinner and movie. the sing-along "mama mia!" too! i love movies with happy endings!

the cherry tomatoes are for pizza toppings at my cousins' bridal shower and baby shower. nono, not one person with both, but two lovely cousins each celebrating her very own lovely event. that was last year. i'm late posting. very late.

will let you know how i like the movie. :)


sometime later: nope! didn't go to the movies. staying home and watching gilmore girls instead. :)

Manic Mondays

On the way to work today, Manic Monday was blasting on the car radio. The Bangles surely know what they're talking about. I especially love these lines because I so miss Sunday already:

It's just another manic Monday
I wish it was Sunday
'Cause that's my funday
My I don't have to runday.

With all the morning rush which today included the commotion that came about after my friend had accidentally stepped on my cat's tail, I forgot to add sugar to my iced coffee. My Manic Monday has already started and it's barely 11:00 AM ... hours to go before I can escape this fluorescent, modern, overly air-conditioned cubicle. Feeling a bit blue today and can't get out of my "bird-in-a-cage" mood. :(

Though looking at one of my favorite Peppa Studio mugs always cheers me up! I'm slowly but surely collecting Peppa's beautiful ceramics. Every single piece makes me happy. :)

Btw, did you know PDN has a new website? Been browsing all morning. All is good except I wish they have links to their older issues as well.

Photo Plus Expo ... A Brief Overview

Maybe finally this year, it's possible to attend this "most important event in photography! :)

Save the date: October 23-25, 2008.

My Inspirations

I love Helen Norman's work! Such beautiful inspirations. Found out about her when I was flipping through Real Simple the other day. I can gaze for hours at her images. :)

Story of a Sign


My friend sent me a link to this wonderful movie. You'll love it, I promise.

The movie runs about 4+ minutes, but don't forget to put on your head phone if you're at the office with other people around you. I'm such a dork! I did put mine on, but forgot to plug the head phone into the computer. The entire time I was watching the movie, I thought the sound was coming from the head phone. Next thing I knew, office doors were slammed and a colleague ran up to my desk to check if I was out of my mind playing "music" so loudly in my cubicle. Argh!

Ahh ... not to be off-subject, but let's get back to this movie. :)
