Scattering Thoughts

Urban Landscape

  • Win­ter is begin­ning to get to me, mean­ing I’m get­ting SAD.
  • And since Troy keeps bug­ging me to post about it, I added a pho­tolog to my port­fo­lio site last week and I’ve been post­ing to it dai­ly since. Leave a com­ment if you see some­thing you like!
  • Troy and I have been watch­ing some episodes from the Amaz­ing Race Asia (down­loaded off the Intar­web). As much as I want to cheer for the Indone­sian team, I just can’t because they com­plain too much.
  • I’ve been lis­ten­ing to some sound­tracks today. “Lit­tle Miss Sun­shine” and “The Last Kiss” have great sound­tracks, even if the lat­ter sucked ass as a movie. “Leonard Cohen: I’m Your Man” sound­tracks, how­ev­er, are pret­ty sucky.
  • Speak­ing of movies, we saw Pan’s Labyrinth last week­end. It was a great movie but it was also quite graph­ic. Many times dur­ing the movie I just had to close my eyes so I didn’t have to see the scenes of vio­lence.
  • I’ve got a wide angle lens for my dSLR cam­era now! And a work­ing Canon SLR cam­era that comes with it but we’d prob­a­bly nev­er use! We could’ve just bought the lens with­out the cam­era but it would’ve cost us more. That’s the won­der of eBay.
  • Light Leaks Mag­a­zine Issue 5 has my pho­to in it and it’s now avail­able for pur­chase! Troy bought me a year sub­scrip­tion to the mag­a­zine today, which is awe­some.
  • Last week­end I made a shock­ing dis­cov­ery: I have a small head! No won­der adult-sized hats are always too big for me yet children’s hats fit per­fect­ly. And all these years I’ve been wast­ing the pow­er of the small brain inside my small head on remem­ber­ing use­less pieces of infor­ma­tion that only come in handy in games of Triv­ial Pur­suit.
  • I feel like mov­ing the fur­ni­ture in the liv­ing room around to make it feel less claus­tro­pho­bic, except there is no way I can do it. This is already the opti­mum lay­out. There’s no room for improve­ments, unless we threw out some pieces of fur­ni­ture, which would be great, but I can’t see it hap­pen­ing either.
  • I didn’t realise how much high­er the prices at Zehrs were com­pared to Sobeys until yes­ter­day (Zehrs and Sobeys are Cana­di­an gro­cery store chains).
  • I felt like going out for a walk with my cam­era just then, but not any­more.
  • I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.

  1. And I thought I was the only one who got sick of win­ter. I long for the warmth of Indone­sia (and the peo­ple) again if only I could go vis­it my wife.

  2. If I may ask, where have you been down­load­ing AR Asia? I’ve been want­i­ng to watch it to get my fix of AR before the new edi­tion starts but have not found it.
    BTW, after 27 years up here (orig­i­nal­ly from Cal­i­for­nia) I am still real­ly arre­cred by SAD

  3. Thanks for post­ing even though you’re SAD. I love your pho­to por­to­lio!
    (and I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up…)

  4. Beka, jakar­ta ban­jir­rr, kalau loe masih ting­gal di pon­dok betung, uah pasti gak bisa kem­ana mana.
    Sehat kan Bek,

  5. For the kind of crap we buy (which is noth­ing spe­cial, real­ly) I think Sobeys has it cheap­er. Plus, Sobeys has more fruit juice selec­tions than Zehrs. Zehrs does have some pret­ty good deals some­times but not most of the time.
