The 1st Saturday back from the warm sunshine and pristine beaches of Bali. I still miss that place. Bali pictures will be up as soon I get Kemmy's set to put together.

The morning was all about pulling apart the Starhub Cable Box. Not before I watched my "last" farewell episode of Globe Trekker on Travel & Living. It was an episode to Cameroon; with tribal rituals and lions at the Safari. Besides Sports, that's prob the only other channel worthy of my time.
So it's official - I'm now "Cableless".

By afternoon, Wen and I had our fill of Sukiyaki and Teriyaki before heading over to the Red Dot Museum. A colonial building, the former traffic police HQ, situated in Central Business District at Maxwell Road is now transformed into a landmark for innovation and creativity in Singapore. Red Dot is the home for the monthly MAAD Market. Opening up a space for handmade handicrafts and design pieces by local designers.

After receiving sooooo many months of promotional flyers on the market I finally made a trip.

It was also Portrait Day - where you get your drawing done by many artists. You pick the ones you like for $8. We were however disappointed with the quality of artists sketching away.

In a dimly lit room was a Lomography Exhibition by LOMOTION. Thousands of lomo photograps filled the walls creating a colourful surreal montage of LIFE.

Adding my own take of the Lomozine Effect in Photoshop

LOMO or Leningradskoye Optiko-Mechanichesckoye Obyedinenie is a manufacturer of advanced optical instruments based in St. Petersburg, Russia.
What started out as a dirt cheap camera charmed the world by the unique, colorful, and sometimes blurry images that was produced.

Lomography emphasizes casual, snapshot photography. Characteristics such as over-saturated colors, off-kilter exposure, blurring, "happy accidents," and alternative film processing are often considered part of the "Lomographic Technique." Users are encouraged to take a lighthearted approach to their photography.

The following are the company's 10 Rules of Lomography:

1. Take your LOMO everywhere you go and whenever you go.
2. Use it any time - day or night.
3. Lomography is not an interference in your life, but a part of it.
4. Shoot from the hip.
5. Approach the objects of your lomographic desire as close as possible.
6. Don't think.
7. Be fast.
8. You don't have to know beforehand what you've captured on film.
9. You don't have to know afterwards, either.
10. Don't worry about the rules.

I was snapping away... but with the Sony V1. I almost forgot that pictures should have depth of field. I brought along the VCL-DEH07V 0.7x Wide End Conversion lens and as promised - no round edge distortion. I cannot be happier with the quality and colour produced by the camera.

We reached Wen's place for another round of movie night on her big ass 42" Plasma TV. It was BIG!!! Topped with her blend of Cognac Sangria and weird Frozen Margaritas from a pre-mixed never freeze bag. With this, you'll never need a blender for ice cubes.

It was a pity Hostel 2 wasn't as satisfying a movie to close the night.
