132 of Project 365: Contact Lens

My optician told me that my eyes were showing signs of lack of oxygen (corneal hypoxia) from prolonged used of contact lens, and I was advised to reduce the usage or stick to the recommended duration of 8 hours. The consequences of lack of oxygen include early aging of the eye.
Hence, for a while I was wearing spectacles so that my eyes can recover until I was recommended this extended wear contact lens. For a normal work day, I usually have to keep the contact lens on for 12 to 14 hours,  hopefully with this extended wear contact lens, more oxygen can flow through. I'll also try to limit the usage of contact lens & let my eyes rest in between. Do check with your optician on your next visit to make sure that your eyes are not "suffocating". Do take care of those gems!

131 of Project 365: 古董相机

话说有一天,大姐我心血来潮,就动起手来打扫我的房间。打扫的过程中,就在架子上找到了这台,已被我遗忘的相机(Fujica STX-1)。也不记得相机是如何落到我手上,但我知道是爸爸给我的。后来拿着相机向妈妈了解一下,原来这是老爸捡来的“战利品”之一。而且搞不好它的年份还比大姐我老叻!
不知道这台单眼胶卷相机还能不能用。我想搞不好,还得花一笔钱维修后才可以操作。
待我以后找到会维修相机的师傅再说吧。

130 of Project 365: 药罐子

生病了就得吃药。近来这三个星期一直病了又好,好了又病。
到底是身体生病,还是心理生病了呢?
总觉得很累,一直没有好好休息过。有一种力不从心的疲惫。

Singapore Art Museum

I went to Singapore Art Museum to check out the event organised by ClubSnap. I intended to get a close up filter from the vendors but it wasn't on sale at the event. Didn't attend any of the talks because the topics covered isn't of interest to me. Well, I didn't exactly left empty handed as I walked away with some pictures of the museum.

Another one shot wonder. Can't get another shot after many tries. Yup, amateur talk. But that's part of the fun, because I really have no idea when or how the picture will turn out. As usual, serendipity!

Dome @ Singapore Art Museum

Taking a break after our visit at the Singapore Art Museum. We decided to sit outdoor as the weather is quite nice and also to avoid the smell trapped indoor.

Trying out manual mode using "2nd Flash Synchro".

Hair Dryer

I decided to get a hair dryer to blow dry my hair after my daily wash in the morning. I used to think that blow drying is damaging to my hair so I always let it dry naturally. So why the sudden change of mind? I happened to read an article which said that it is actually bad for the scalp to be damp for long period of time, it's like wearing a wet cap over our head. Hence, it's good practice to dry our hair immediately after washing. Maybe, it's old age and I'm worried that the dampness might cause headache when I age, so better be safe than sorry.
This hair dryer is good because it's recommended by people in the hair trade. It drys my hair in a jiffy and it's not noisy. Well, it's not called "Hush 2000" for nothing.

小娃娃

好可爱的贝比。超爱她那鼎漂亮的帽子。她只有六个月大。不知何故小贝比一直用圆咕噜的眼睛盯着我看。

Vegetarianism

Will you be convinced to become a vegan after reading this?

Jaz Beer

Malaysian beer: Jaz. Visit the web site for more information but you have to answer a very interesting question in order to enter the web site. The ambassador for the Jaz beer is the infamous Hong Kong artiste Gillian Chung.
I tried the mini 15cl bottle shown here. The target consumers is most likely the female population as the beer is pretty light without the usual bitter after taste but I find that it has a sourish taste.
A word of advice: Don't drive to drink. Cheers!

Great when pair with my cousin's bak gua.

Jonker Street

很喜欢马六甲,因为有古色古香的建筑还有美食。可是每去一趟就发现她越来越“新”了。很多老旧的建筑都翻新了。总觉得某些味道已不复存在。

The Stadthuys

My cousin drove us back to Singapore from Kuala Lumpur, and as usual we stopped at Malacca for nonya lunch and also a chance for me to take some pictures.
