Off to the beach!


“Boblbee Mentor”

“Lowepro Nova 400 AW”

5:30am, ready to leave the house. Got my gear ready; my trusty XDA2, Boblbee, its new companion, the Lowepro Nova [camera], and a TON of coins for the toll-fare hehehe.

Will meet up with the gang 6am @ Shell Magallanes. I just hope everyone’s on time… geez I hope I’m on time. =)

Bummer that it’s an overnight thing though, I wish it could last longer, but the cursed “professional life” requires some of us to work on Sundays.

Yuppies, we are such wretched things…

Let there be light!

“Canon Speedlite 550ex”

The flash finally arrived! I opened the box and an unassuming flash came out. Honestly, a cheap looking flash came out of it, as I was expecting something like my friend Nono’s Speedlite. Instead, I held this seemingly fragile thing. However, after using it, I became a believer.

Here’s a test-fire with the Sigma, I just pointed it straight up and faced the mirror and see what happened…

Waiting for my rocket, err FLASH to come…

“JT Photoworld”

“Sigma Flashes”

“Sigma EF500 DG Super”

Well, Nono texts me at about lunchtime and mentions that JT Photoworld finally had the Sigma Flashes on stock. Better yet, the model was newer than what I was considering the other day.

Anyways, I’ve confirmed the transaction and agreed to pay an extra hundred to have the item delivered to my doorstep. I just hope it makes it today, cuz I’m going to be mighty ticked-off if I don’t get to bring it to the beach tomorrow.

A grueling day

Went to Quiapo. Used train (LRT/MRT/whatever).

My first time come to think of it . . . suprisingly, the train is actually cleaner than what I’ve tried in New York. The people are a different story…

Definitely a tiring experience. . .
