Some Singapore Pics
Posted by meronpan on January 25, 2010
Thought I’d combine a little site update with the pics I took during my (business) trip to Singapore last year. For those more interested in figures, I’m anticipating Hobby Search will send out my preordered goodies next week… which means… well crap I may not have time to put up reviews before I leave for Japan. Did I mention I’m headed back to Japan? I’m headed back to Japan for vacation ^____^
I’ll be leaving mid-February and will be in Tokyo for the greater part of a week. Unfortunately I’ll be missing WonFes but on the other hand I’m not too keen on lines anyway :P
I think I may have lucked out on some movie timing though… is the Nanoha movie gonna be in theatres? And the haruhi movie?! Considering my lack of hardcore dedication I’d say I’m a casual fan of both series (despite what my figure collection may suggest :P) but will be ecstatic to see both ^__^ ooo and Fate/Stay night should be out too???
So that’s my trip in the works… That, combined with my hobby renaissance has lead to some pretty slim pickings for my blog posts ^^; Gaming has been the biggest time sink, though there are others. Currently trying to balance my time between:
- JLPT lvl 1 prep
- touhou (pofv at the moment)
- assassin’s creed
- braid (just finished)
- this blog
- keeping current on everyone else’s blog
- getting caught up on anime (currently struggling through sorakake)
- getting caught up on manga (only thing i managed to complete recently was yotsuba)
The last two are especially daunting ^^;
…and that list conveniently excludes any self improvement or progress in my career ^^;;;
Guess I’ll continue rambling to make it through the rest of my pics :P
Was a very different experience visiting Singapore. Very convenient that everyone speaks english ^^;
Really hot and humid, glad I didn’t destroy my camera ^^;;; Though I think I might’ve slightly damaged my 50mm lens orz
Feels like there’s some increased chromatic aberration… wouldn’t be surprised if I messed up and didn’t properly protect the lens from the environment. Didn’t really think far enough ahead when I was doing the last minute packing for the trip.
A surreal experience with all the Christmas decorations amidst the warm weather.
Good thing I was on business or I might’ve spent all my money shopping. So many malls!
Recently got a circular polarizer, which, if I understand correctly, would’ve help a lot with the reflections in the above pic ^^;
Alrighty, think that’s most of the pics I had worth posting ^^;
Any suggestions for Japan? Though I could easily fill up 5-6 days with more shopping in akiba I always feel a bit guilty doing so and should probably set up some other goals :P Well, I will be in northern Japan before that for an onsen excursion, but there’s still time for other things when I’m back :P
