Look at the folks queuing up for foreign currency exchange – People’s Park Complex seems to be a popular area to do foreign currency exchange. Just remember to check out the rates before committing. I usually do my foreign exchange at The Arcade or Mustafa (because of 24hr operation and online viewing of rates).

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009机动战士新加坡嘉年华2009

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

In celebration of Gundam 30th anniversary, an event Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009 (organized by Bandai Asia and Sheng Tai Toys) is held from 2nd to 14th September 2009 at Compass Point (Sengkang). I believe this is the first time a Gundam only event of such scale was held in Singapore.

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

Errm, we don’t get to have the 1:1 60 feet life-size Gundam statue (See Google Images) as Tokyo Odaiba but this Gundam 00 is enough to get all the shutterbugs and mecha-fans attention! It’s really difficult to get a shot of Gundum 00 without anyone posing in front. 🙂

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

One of the walls at Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009. Nice artwork that incorporated Gundam and BB Senshi Sangokuden Gaiden. 🙂

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

History panel for you to learn the history of Gundam anime and model kits.

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

A showcase of the various generations of Gundams. If you are Gundam model fan, you may want to meet Katsumi Kawaguchi Sensei (professional modeler and also in-charge of Gundam model kit design at Bandai) on 12th and 13th Sept 2009.

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

More Gundam exhibits to please the mecha-fans as well some of the casual crowds that attended the event.

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

World of Sangokuden.

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

BB Senshi Sangokuden Gaiden – Kochu Gundam, Chohi Gundam, Kan-u Gundam, Chouun Gundam and Bacho Blue Destiny.

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

Otakus and also casual pass-by folk checking out the numerous exhibits. Most are armed with either PNS or SLR cameras.

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

Gundam 00 standing by and guarding the entrance. ^^;

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

Cashier for fans to pay for any Gundam model kits purchased during the event. I noted that it was stated 20% discount for regular priced item but I didn’t go inquire at the sales counter the queue there was quite long.

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

I went to get a drink and only to return to see that the Gundam Image Girls is already on stage posing for all the fans. I didn’t get a good position as I was late. 🙂

Check out all the cameras!

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

But nevertheless, I managed to zoom through some openings to get a fair shot. Here, on the stage, the items (not the 2 pretty ladies) are actually prizes for the Gundam lucky draw.

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

Gundam girls posing beside Gundam. I understand that the Gundam Image Girls will only be around on 5th, 6th, 12th and 13th September so please note your calendar if you are going to the event to catch them. ^^;

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

Another shot taken from Char’s Zaku II.

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

More poses from the Gundam Girls. What a kawaii (かわいい) pose!

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

Another photo of the Gundam Girls. Can someone tell me their names? Want to give them credits. ^^; Yeah!

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

Look at the crowd forming. At certain times, it was difficult to maneuver to get good position to take photos. This is taken from the 2nd level of Compass Point.

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

Some fun stuff that I came across in Compass Point – “Do you know that Singapore was mentioned more than once in Gundam Wing series? It is a important Military base!” Are you aware?

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

Another fun fact – “Do you know that a society called “International Gundam Society” was established in August 2009? This research group studies the future of mankind through the animated series, Mobile Suit Gundam.” Hmm, I wasn’t aware so I went to google and the conclusion is that it exists (webby is here).

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

Last fun fact – “Do you know that there was a Singapore Gundam? You can find its appearance in the G Gundam series!”

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

Brochures that I obtained during the event, many Gundam model kits are on sale (HG Gundam 00 2nd Series, First Gundam MG Series, etc). Feel like getting the MG Gundam Exia Ignition Mode or the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam but the crowd made me decide to come back on a weekday instead of weekend to get my purchase. 🙂

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

In the center fold of the brochure, there is also the BB Senshi Sangokuden Gaiden models for sale! If you are a Gundam fan and currently in Singapore, please do visit Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009! I believe that this event is welcoming and sincerely hope that other similar events will take place in future too!Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

一些我在勘宝坊碰到有趣的东西- 你知道吗,在新机动战记钢弹W系列里新加坡不止一次被提到?是重要的军士基地!

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

另一个有趣的事实 – 你知道一个成为”国际机动战士协会“的社会成立于 2009年8月?这个研究小组通过新机动战记钢弹动画系列研究人类的未来。我不晓的所以到网上察看结果真的有这个协会(网页在此)。

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

最后一个有趣的事实- “你知道吗,有新加坡机动战士?你可以在G新机动战记系列找到!

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

我在活动拿到的宣传册,很多机动战士有折扣(HG 机动战士 00第二系列,机动战士MG第一系列等等)。好想买MG机动战士Exia Ignition Mode或者RX-0 Unicorn 机动战士可是人太多了所以我决定改天再回来买。:)

Gundam Fiesta Singapore 2009

在小册子的中间,有BB战士 三国伝模型折扣!如果你是机动战士迷,而且又在新加坡记得要到机动战士新加坡嘉年华2009!我相信这次得多动举办的这么成功以后一定会有类似的活动!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

Just gotten myself a replacement camera not long ago. Although it packed inside an Olympus paperback but it’s definitely not an Olympus. It’s actually a high-end compact prosumer camera – Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 costs me S$698 and it comes with the following freebies – 8GB SD Card, mini tripod, cleaning kit, screen protector and a third-party extra battery. For review and specs for LX3, please see here (dpreview.com).

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

Unboxing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 – comes with all the usual stuffs like battery charger, power cables, mini USB cables, manuals, etc.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

The LCD screen is fitted with the screen protector already. I have asked the folks from the camera store to fix it up to me as I remembered that my clumsy hands did a bad job of putting on Invisible Shield on my HTC Touch Diamond. Haha!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

The new versus the old – Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 and Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX8. The FX8 have served me well over the years and it was about time to upgrade it for my street photography use. If you want to know more about FX8, please see here. I would also like to lay my hands on the rumored new Micro Four Thirds Panasonic GF1 too but it’s still a rumor until officially announced. Right? 😛

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

At the side lens barrel of LX3, you can easily change between Autofocus, Macro and Manual Focus. This gives the more experienced folks a bit more control.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

The LX3 screen is amazing. In fact, it’s too good that you might have mistaken that you have taken a great shot! 😛

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

Changing aspect ratio is so easy on the LX3 as it’s on the lens barrel. There is no need to go several layers deep into the software menu just to make a change.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

Without going through the manual, I straight away took the new LX3 out for a test shoot (no settings done too!) – the photos as follows are either taken in intelligent auto (to test capturing of inpromptu situations) or manual mode. This evening shot of Capitol Building was taken around 7:15pm.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

St Andrew’s Cathedral.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

My dinner at Subway – Roast Beef Sandwich at S$6.90. Add another S$2.30 for 1 packet of chips and 1 regular size drink.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

Close-up of Roast Beef Sandwich (wheat bread) with mayonnaise, chipotle southwest sauce and black pepper. Yummy!!!!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

Funan DigitaLife Mall at about 8:17pm. A couple was smooching when I took this shot and I didn’t even notice until I was going through the photos. You’ll never know what you will capture when you have a camera by your side! LOL!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

Basement 3 car park at Raffles City Shopping Centre.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

Bought Erdinger Special Pack at Jasons Market Place at Raffles City Shopping Centre at S$27.95 as I wanted the tall Erdinger Pint glass. He he! The pack comes with 2 bottles of Erdinger Weissbier, 2 bottles of Erdinger Dunkel, 2 Erdinger wheat glass and 6 Erdinger coasters. And I will definitely attend Erdinger Oktoberfest in Singapore too!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

On the stage, a saxophone performance by a talented artist while balancing on unicycle.

The sky have turned dark. Time for me to go home before it’s start to rain and soak my new LX3. LOL!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

May Phua (local TV actor) is the emcee for the event.

So after viewing all the test shoot photoes, what is your view on LX3? I though it was great and I had a fun-filled time with it. I guess it’s also time for me to go through the manual, menu, controls to squeeze more out of the LX3. Happy shooting then!Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

不久前我刚更换了相机. 虽然是装在 Olympus纸袋里但绝对不是Olympus. 它实际上是一个高级小型专业相机- Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

这架Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3相机价值S$698而且附带以下赠品- 8GB的SD卡,迷你三脚架,清洁工具包,屏幕保护和备用电池。审查和LX3, 请到这里(dpreview.com)。

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

拆开盒子-配备了所有类似电池充电器,电源线,迷你USB电缆,手册等。

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

液晶屏幕配备的屏幕保护。我已要求照相机商店的帮我弄好,记得我拙劣的双手把我的HTC Touch Diamond的屏幕保护弄坏。哈哈!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

新与旧的对比- Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3和Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX8. 我用了FX8还多年了是时候为了街头摄影把它给换了。如果你想知道多些关于FX8,请看这里。我也想用有新的谣言Micro Four Thirds Panasonic GF1,但它仍是一个谣言。对吗?:P

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

在LX3方镜筒旁边,可以轻松地更改自动对焦,微距拍摄和手动对焦。这给有经验的摄影人多一点控制。

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

LX3屏幕真是惊人。事实上,这不太好,你可能会误以为你已经拍了漂亮的照片! 😛

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

改变aspect ratio对LX3说是很容易的,因为就在镜筒。无需进入好几层的软件就为了做出改变。

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

没有看通过手册我就拿了新的 LX3试拍(没有调设置!)-以下的照片是利用自动式拍的(以测试没有准备的情况下拍的)或手动模式。这Capitol Building的夜景是在7点15分左右拍的。

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

Iluma @ Bugis Light UpIluma(武吉士街)亮灯仪式

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

On 15th Aug 2009, we went to a newly opened shopping mall called Iluma. It is located in Bugis and prominently situated opposite Bugis Junction.

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

Inside Iluma, an artist is painting on the wall. We came to know that actually today Iluma is having it’s light up for the unique looking design so there are a number of activities lined up.

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

The escalator within Iluma. The unique design on the ceiling make the mall look stylish.

Moving on, we came across some acrobatics performance on-going inside the mall and decided to stay to check it out.

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

OMG! 180 degrees leg split while hanging upside down. The music together with the amazing stunts shown were really entertaining.

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

Glad that we managed to catch this performance. A loud clap for the children and teens who performed!

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

We went outside and there was also another Indonesian music performances as well.

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

At the entrance of Iluma, quite a crowd have gathered to check out the happenings. Notice the unique-looking and diamond-shaped thingy, these will be lighted up tonight. Anticipating it and hope that it will look great!

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

We were tired walking around and hence stopped by at Breko Café, which is beside Iluma, to take a breather. We decided to sit outside as the weather is cooling and we can still check out the on-goings at Iluma too.

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

Breko happy hour promotion – 2 bottles of Asahi at S$12++. In fact, you can choose any 2 bottles from a fixed drink list. 🙂

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

Empire State – a restaurant located at 4th floor. Seems like it’s serving New York styled food.

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

On the same level, there is a cluster of 7 Japanese restaurants from different prefectures of Japan, which is collectively known as Ebiboshi Shotengai. The end result is somehow like Movenpick Marche Restaurant. The restaurants featured are Katsumiya, Tsubohachi (Japan’s Number One Izakaya), Sanshigo, Menya Manpei, Tora Shabu, Teppan No Hoshi and Sweet Brothers.

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

Tora Shabu – featuring french maid-styled waitress? Will try someday if they allow photography. 😛

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

Sweet Brothers – serving Japanese desserts and drinks.

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

For you to pose and take a photo. 😛

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

Ebiboshi Shotengai – Ninja School? I want to learn Rasengan and Chidori! Wahaha!

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

Marble Slab Creamery – the freshest ice cream on earth. Believe this is the first store to be opened in Singapore. I will give it a try the next round.

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

The main reason we came to Iluma is because we have booked for a movie online at Film Garde. 2 tickets at S$19 and booking fee of S$1.

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

Sale of drink, popcorn, nachos and other snacks for your munching while enjoying the movie but please don’t disturb your neighbors. 🙂

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

Light up show have finally started and as you can see, it can formed words as well.

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

The lights are ever moving and it’s like a huge giant TV display (though it’s not flat).

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

Very bright light up! My opinion is that the display will be very much suitable during Christmas as it’s look so much like snow flakes.

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

Photos does not do justice to the beautiful display and I wasn’t able to capture video as the camera I had along didn’t have that function!

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

This is the rear entrance of Iluma. Please do go and experience Iluma for yourself!Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

在09年8月15日,我们到了新开张的大型购物中心,名为Iluma 。它坐落在武吉士和位于白沙浮广场对面。

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

Iluma内,一位艺术家在作墙上画。我们得知,实际上今天是Iluma 独特的设计的亮灯仪式,所以安排了一些活动。

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

ILuma内的电动扶梯 。使天花板上的独特设计使广场看起来非常时尚。

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

接着,我们看到一些在商场内进行的杂技表演,并决定留下来看看。

天啊!一百八十度的倒挂皮腿。惊人的特技加上音响效果让节目非常精彩。

在Iluma的入口处,不少人聚集看看发生了什么事。看到独特和菱形的物体吗 ,今晚这些将会亮起灯来。我相信一定很好看!

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

我们四处走到厌倦,因此在Breko咖啡休息喘息,就在Iluma的旁边。由于天气正在降温我们决定坐在外面而且还可以检看Iluma的状况 。

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

Breko欢乐时光促销-两瓶AsahiS$12++。 其实你可以从一个固定的酒单选择任何2瓶酒。 🙂

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

在同一楼,有一家7间不同日本餐馆混合,也称Ebiboshi Shotengai。最终的结和是有点像Movenpick Marche Restaurant餐厅。精选的餐厅是Katsumiya , Tsubohachi (日本排名第一的菜) , Sanshigo , Menya Manpei ,Tora Shabu, Teppan No Hoshi and Sweet Brothers。

Lenovo ThinkPad X200sLenovo ThinkPad X200s

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

Recently I got my hands on a Lenovo ThinkPad X200s. A ultra-compact and portable 12.1″ notebook for the mobile road warriors. It is similar to Lenovo ThinkPad X200 except that it’s lighter and less powerful.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

The notebook comes in the familiar clean and professional matte-black look (some argued it’s boring). But still, the design was sturdy and solid to the feel.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

Right side of the notebook comes with 1 USB, 1 earphone, 1 microphone and 1 modem.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

The left side consists of 1 power jack, 1 heat fan, 2 USB, 1 VGA, 1 Ethernet, wireless switch and 1 ExpressCard 54mm slot.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

12.1 WXGA (1280×800) screen, 150GB Hard Disk Drive, Wifi/bluetooth, 2GB RAM and Integrated Graphics. The cup beside is my coffee. 😛

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

This model comes with Intel® Celeron® M processor 723 (1.2GHz, 1MB L2, 800MHz FSB) processor. I will be using this notebook for emails, word processing, chatting, etc. Nothing that uses a lot of processing power.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

Keyboard is nice to the touch and no irritating rattling to disturb other surrounding folks.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

The X200s comes with standard red-colored TrackPoint only (no touchpad – believe to save space).

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

The Lenovo ThinkPad X200s also comes with an integrated camera for your video conferencing needs.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

Extra red TrackPoint rubber for replacing worn ones.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

My old trusty IBM ThinkPad T42 which I have used for 3 years. Right side comes with a dvd/cdrw drive.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

IBM ThinkPad T42 – Left side comes with 2 USB, 1 modem, 1 Ethernet, 1 earphone, 1 microphone, 1 heat fan and 2 PCMCIA slots.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

IBM ThinkPad T42 – behind is a parallel port and a power jack.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

Forgive me for the dust as I have not wipe it for ages. 😛

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

My old IBM ThinkPad T42 comes with 15 inch screen, which I will miss dearly. Ha ha!

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

Size comparison – old IBM ThinkPad T42 (left) and new Lenovo ThinkPad X200s (right).

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

The Lenovo ThinkPad X200s screen was bright, clean and crisp although I was still not getting used to a the 12.1 inch yet.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

I always have the feeling that my IBM ThinkPad T42 screen (left) is somewhat yellowish. This is further confirmed when I place it side-by-side with my new Lenovo ThinkPad X200s. Both notebooks are showing a blank page in Firefox.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

Running PC Marks on both notebooks. IBM ThinkPad T42 did not manage to complete successfully and I didn’t bother to re-try.

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

Results for Lenovo ThinkPad X200s is 2036 PCMarks. Please do google for more comprehensive reviews or you can check out the bestselling and popular Notebooks at Amazon. Have fun!Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

最近我刚刚换了一台新的Lenovo ThinkPad X200s手提电脑。只有12.1英寸既方便又薄确实适合流动式运作的专业人士。和Lenovo ThinkPad X200挺像的不过软件差了点和比较轻。

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

笔记本电脑类似以往的磨砂黑色外观(有些人认为没新鲜感)。但是设计坚固。

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

笔记本电脑右侧搭配一个USB接口,1个耳机,1个麦克风和1个调制解调器。

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

左边包括1个电源插口,1热风扇,2个USB,1个VGA,1 个Ethernet,无线交换机和一个ExpressCard插槽五十四毫米。

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

12.1 WXGA (1280×800)屏幕,150GB硬盘驱动器,无线/蓝牙,2GB的内存和集成显卡。旁边的杯是我的咖啡。:P

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

这一款有英特尔® 赛扬 ® M处理器723 (1.2GHz主频,1MB的L2,800MHz FSB)。我将用这笔记本看电子邮件,文字处理,聊天等。 不会用来做大量处理能力的事情。

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

键盘感觉很好, 没有让人讨厌的声音。

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

该X200s配备标准红色轨迹球只(无触摸屏-以节省空间为理由)。

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

这Lenovo ThinkPad X200s还为了会议视频需求配备了集成摄像头的。

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

额外的红色轨迹球(取代磨损的)。

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

我用了三年旧的IBM ThinkPad T42。右边配备一台DVD / CDRW驱动器。

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

IBM ThinkPad T42 -左边配备2个USB,1个调制解调器,1个Ethernet,1个耳机, 1个麦克风,1热风扇和2个PCMCIA插槽。

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

IBM ThinkPad T42 -后面是一个parallel port和一个电源插座。

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

太久没擦了堆积了很多尘埃。:P

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

我旧的IBM ThinkPad T42有15.1英寸屏幕, 我会想念它的。 哈哈!

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

比较大小 – 旧的IBM ThinkPad T42 (左边)新的Lenovo ThinkPad X200s(右边)。

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

The Lenovo ThinkPad X200s 屏幕很明亮,清洁,清晰虽然还不是很习惯12.1 英寸的屏幕。

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

我总是觉得 我的ThinkPad T42 screen (左边)有点淡黄。当我把它和新的Lenovo ThinkPad X200s放在一起比较就证实了。两个笔记本都是在同一篇网页。

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

在两台笔记本跑同一款软件。旧的IBM ThinkPad T42没顺利完成我也没再尝试。

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s

Lenovo ThinkPad X200s的成绩是2036PCMarks. 请到google游览更多全面的评论或者可以到Amazon看畅销和受欢迎的笔记本电脑。慢慢享受吧!
