Football Match (Album 1)

First time shooting a football match. The result? 1.5 hours worth of blur photos! But it was fun! And I've gained new respect for sports photographer! It's really NOT an easy job at all! Besides trying to avoid getting hit by the ball, you also tend to follow the ball with your camera, thus missing lots of other candid shots. And most of the time, the action just happens too fast to capture it in time. Guess you just need to keep on shooting to get a nice action shot. Oh well. Here's the first batch of my maiden sports event outing :) Let me scan through the rest of the photos to see if they're worth uploading. My battery died 1.5 hours into the shot, and died again while I was editing the photos, so this is just the first half of the available photos I got. Stay tune! Btw, these are photos of my company's first football outing, that's how I end up in the field with my camera :) Hmmm, maybe I should try badminton next outing . . .

Peter Walsh the De-cluttering Guru

This month is Peter Walsh month! And I'm into book two of his book. I started with "It's All Too Much: An Easy Plan for Living a Richer Life with Less Stuff", and am now half way through "Enough Already!: Clearing Mental Clutter to Become the Best You". On my library reservation list, there's another book waiting for me which I am looking forward to that's call "Does This Clutter Make My Butt Look Fat?: An Easy Plan for Losing Weight and Living More".

After reading the first book, I gave my study room a de-cluttering and threw one third of my stuff out! I couldn't even remember half of the things existed before my de-cluttering session. I'm not an untidy person, but even I have clutters to clear in my house. And it was indeed a very fun activity to carry out. Ever had that feeling that material things seems to be weighting you down? Well, read all his book and learn to fly free!

If you don't like reading, you can also watch him on some Oprah episodes where he helps people de-clutter their houses. Give it a try. He is fun to watch, his book is funny, and you get some exercise done while reading it and a clean and tidy home at the end of it! Highly recommended. But then again, I am a self-help book junkie :P

Stay tune, I might be going nuts reading Suze Orman or Dr Mehmet Oz next month!

Central Business District of Singapore

I think the photos reflect my mood for that day . . .

Leftover Salad

We had some leftover salad leaves from previous day's dinner, so we decided to make leftovers by adding just a few stuff here and there. So here's how our leftover looks like

Salad: same as last time, plus half boiled egg and poached prawns.
Roast Chicken Drumstick: marinate chicken with Maggi Sauce and Mixed Herbs for 1 hour, bake for 40 minutes in oven, turning every 10 to 15 minutes or so.

Salad for Dinner

I think my husband is trying to kill me! This is what I came home to today for dinner, prepared by him. Butter head, wild rocket, tommy tomatoes, mango and smoked salmon, all mixed up with blue cheese salad sauce and Parmesan cheese. I feel so healthy now I want to die! Thank God for Durian Mooncake to save the day! Wahahaha.

Shuang Lin Temple Toa Payoh

Here are some of the photos taken from photo outing #2. Believe it or not, this is an outing to Shuang Lin Temple. You can compare it with the photo I took just two months back here. They are both of the same temple. But somehow, with my new camera, I don't seems to be taking photos of what I expect I would take of a temple. Just like outing #1 to the Botanical Garden, I thought I'll come back with photos of flowers, but end up with leaves and ants instead. And like an outing to a temple, one would expect lots of temple-like photo, but when I compile my pictures, it doesn't really shout T-E-M-P-L-E does it? Hmmmm

Oh well. No fave photo here, although I kinda like the yellow flower photo a lot when I blow it up on the screen. Hope to take similar kind of shot in the near future soon! Stay tune! Next stop - CBD area of Singapore!
