798 Fancy Pants

Went to Beijing’s art district, 798 with Calvin, Susan & Susan, and new roommate Jun. Again.

There weren’t too many things to take pictures of cos let’s face it, there were too many people and we’ve been there quite a number of times already but yea Jun was new here so we wanted to bring him around.

Most of these pictures were taken by Calvin; only 1 or 2 by me cos again, I still suck pretty bad.

So yea, here are some pictures from that day that we all declared a good one.

This was my best picture of the day. Which really doesn’t say much of my skills.

Then we toyed a little with Calvin’s super wide angle lense. That be Susan.

That be Jun.

o.O

That be Susan.

That be Calvin.

Still playing with the wide angle.

O.-

Hamsap spotted.

Then we decided to use this rather peculiar wall as background…

…for jumping shots!!!1!!!11!!1!!1

Failed impression of Ip Man.

Dhalsim vs. E. Honda

Nike – Run on air.

 

And there’s always the obligatory super-most-handsomemest-guy-on-earth pose =D

Up next, sceneries around Tsinghua and Beijing’s botanical garden.

Stay tuned.

Smelly Tofu & A Rather Delightful Sunday

Smelly tofu.

It smelled so bad I almost threw up on the table. Serious.

I’ve been meaning to give it a try to see what the fuss was about.

And FUCK IT WAS GOOD!!!

Only problem was that my breath then turned foul.

———————————————————————————————————————————

The weather is gradually becoming Malaysian-friendly now so we decided to go take some pictures.

We were at Tsinghua’s School of Arts.

As usual, I borrowed Calvin’s Nikon D80 and he borrowed a friend’s Canon 5D MarkII.

Steve had his Canon 550D but in the end succumbed to the pure awesomeness of (our model’s) Nikon D700.

Here are some of the better pictures.

This is Calvin falling prey to Canon’s marketing strategy.

Steve with his 550D before observing some stark shortcomings in Stacie (he named it Stacie) when compared to D700. Apples and oranges Steve…

Red frames.

The giant egg in the middle of nowhere.

The head that had grass growing out of.

FLARWEEEEEEERRRRRR…

She was our model of the day – Rong En.

Our other Chinese mode ffk-ed cos… well… cos she ffk lo!

3/4 Korean and 1/4 Japanese and the proud owner of a certain D700.

The pictures of her are really average if not bad cos I admit – I suck.

Simple as ding dong.

Still, looking forward to learn and improve.

Our next destination: 植物园 (direct translation: “plants garden”)

Apparently now with the sun finally out from hibernation mode  it’s gonna be very pretty.

We’ve already secured the modelling services of Rong En + the ffk-ed Chinese girl so hopefully things turn out fine.

Beijing Auto Show 2010

This was one show that I went as a guy, looked around as a guy and more importantly, thought like a guy.

I borrowed Calvin’s Nikon D80 + 70-200mm/f2.8 so the close-ups are mostly mine.

Calvin was using a Canon 5D + 24-70mm/f2.8 so the not so close-ups are his.

Here are some of the better pictures we took and it is in no particular order.

Boys, enjoy.
