Comex 2009 is now officially open until this Sunday. With booths and mega bargains extending from first floor to the sixth in the convention halls (yes, every floor has something going on).
Do you have what it takes to join the rest of the crowd in finding your best bargain for the gadgets and hardware?

Singaporean Tan Choon Wee has won the Digital Camera Photographer of the Year 2008 contest with his entry titled, Fun Bathing.
The picture was taken in Bali, Indonesia. It's a river damn on the outskirts of a small village. Local villagers go there to wash their clothes and bath, but it's particularly popular with the local kids. This place is great for photography as the morning sunlight comes from behind the dam and always shines on the lower level of the fall first. This creates a good dark waterfall background, which contrasts well with the subject. It's a favourite place for shutter bugs. I needed a steady hand and high camera ISO because I had to step into shallow but rapidly moving river water below the dam, so I couldn't use my tripod. I had to shoot at five frames per second on my Nikon D200 in order to capture the fast action of the kids playing in the water.
In fact, I only captured a handful of perfect images from the hundred or so I shot.

This is going to be the largest ferris wheel in the world. Bigger than the London Eye. 165m tall (42 storey building). 7m x 4m airconditioned capsule with capacity of 30 people. 37 min per ride. Better go pee first before you get on this thing.

Remember the BMT gathering photo that sparked a big hoohah on my tagboard? The one with the baby very high up in the background?
Apparently, my other BMT friend had the photographer take the same shot with another camera.
Wanna do a comparison?

Since 2002, enthusiasts have been traversing Singapore on the last day of each year capturing images images of the island and her people with their cameras... The objective of this project is to preserve the collective memories of Singapore through the eyes of people from all walks of life, be they foreign or local. It is a collective effort to document humanism and history of the city.
Recommended by ramblinglibrarian: "This might interest photography buffs in Singapore. I suppose their blog could be considered as a "Blog-umentary"."

What an unexpected premise for a photo exhibition!
Cameras were given to migrant workers so that they can show us Singapore as they see it, as they live it. Catch the exhibition at Objectifs and look at them looking at us.

The trip to Muzaffarabad took seven hours by minibus. The driving is a lot like the driving in India - lots of occasions when you feel like you're sitting in the Millennium Falcon and there're swarms of TIE fighters/ interceptors streaming past your canopy. Wasn't too bad at first - I was seated in the first row of seats with Fred. Then when we got to the mountains, our driver inexplicably forgot how to get to Muzaffarabad and had to stop several times to ask for directions.

They say you can't change the world. You can only change your attitude. Hence, to make this world a better place or at least a more camera-friendly place for everyone - travelers and passers-by alike, I am writing this entry for everyone's benefit. You and Your Camera 101. You don't need anything to learn here. Just a few minutes to absorb what I have to say and a little effort next time someone asks you to take them a picture.

NTU had kindly loaned us their diving pool for the shoot. It was a 25m by 25m pool which was around 4-4.2m deep. Pretty scary for a non-swimmer like me. T_T
You must be thinking: 'Siao ah~!!! dunno how to swim still wanna do underwater shoot. Life too long for you issit???'
A look at the perils of underwater fashion photography for a non-swimmer. Facing her fears and taking the plunge.

There is an annual Japanese event in Singapore which takes place towards the end of summer. This is the Natsu Matsuri, or summer festival, and it is usually staged at the Japanese School in Changi, since it's the largest place available.
The people there were either Japanese or people who wanted to be Japanese. If you enjoy internationalization and want to mingle among Japanese folks, or Singaporeans who love to talk in Japanese when they know zero Japanese, this is the place to be.
Quite a massive crowd was present.
Fun article with loads of photos.
