Revisiting Empire Damansara (Agfa Vista 400)

Once again, I love my new wide angle lens. Can't stop raving about it...haha...
Wanted to test the lens everywhere and everything. Be it dark areas, full of light and bright sunlight, I'll be there.
Empire Damansara is a place that I personally love. There's nothing there really except for a few shops (for now) and beautiful architecture.

Someone commented on one of my post asking about the change of deco at this place recently. Well, this post is for you and yes, they have changed the red chinese lanterns to bright pink and baby blue brollies :)

It was drizzling that day. The sky was dark but the Canon AE-1 is the master of low lights.

Beautiful brollies.

The colours are so sweet this time around.

This is my current FB cover photo coz I love this shot.

The other side.

Chao Phraya River, Bangkok on film (Kodak Portra 160)

Back in February, we took a trip to Bangkok. Most of the photos were developed except for this roll. I kept some of the exposures for my Singapore trip. Here are the last of my BKK's trip photos.

Here's a photo of the fountain outside of Siam Paragon and Siam Center.

This look a bit retro. Kinda like it.

Wide angle lens (28mm) on Canon AE-1 (Kodak Portra 160)

Recently I bought a wide angle lens from Lomocrewz (you can find the buyer on Instagram @Lomocrewz_Lion). I bought my Canon AE-1 from him as well. Very speedy delivery.

Anyway, I was super excited to receive the lens and went out to test the lens. My sister drove me to Pavilion KL for some shopping and photography. Here are some photos from that roll which my sister dubbed it as her own mini album.

We were there around 11am and all is quiet. Love it.

This was taken in PJ.

I love what Portra 160 has to offer. Soft skin effect and a bit of greyish effect. Will buy more of this film once I'm done with whatever that I have left.

My ever faithful Olympus Mju II

I love carrying my Olympus Mju II camera around for its lightweight and reliability. And I love Lomography's now extinct X-pro Chrome 100 film. I still have a few rolls left with me :) I am one happy ahjumma !

Here is my most recent roll from various locations.

Cute wall art from Mugshot Cafe in Penang. I love the hanging red cloth. It's so much like Chinese horror movies.

Random sign near my in-laws place in Penang.

Empire Damansara during Chinese New Year break. They have replaced the brollies with red chinese lanterns.

Minus the lantern, this place looks like Europe.

The infamous DPAC or Damansara Performing Arts Centre.

One of the many steel staircase in Empire Damansara.

It says Heritage Lane. But it's in Empire Damansara. The arch is near Texas Chicken.

 And a shot of Bangkok of  course.

My Bangkok trip

This is the first trip ever that I took only with my siblings all my life. And I love it~

I wish that the trip was longer as we were rushing around to do things with the days that we have there.

Here are some of the photos taken during the trip (on film of course!).

This was taken with Canon AE-1 and Agfa Vista 400 film.
I wish that I had a wide angle lens then. This photo would've turned out more awesome. 

Beautiful prang. I always wonder whether this is considered a prang? Let me know if you have the answer.

My younger siblings busy taking photos on their Konstruktor and ColorSplash cameras.

Love their poses in this photo.

My silly sister.

This was taken with my Canon AE-1 on Fujifilm Proplus II
My absolute favourite of the lot.

This was taken with my Olympus Mju II on Lomography X-pro Chrome 100.
My sister - 1st time tourist to Bangkok.

 Happy pose by the bonsai plants.

Would love to go back there again with them. The 3 of us had a great time.
Eat, sleep, shit, explore and shoot film!

Yashica Minister III - 1st test roll

Finally got around to finish the first roll of Lady Grey 400 on my serviced Yashica Minister III. I love the results but my sifu said it's best to shoot a roll of color to see whether the camera is fully working. I'll do that on the second roll.

Here are some of my favorite shots from the 1st roll and hope that you like it as well.

My brother. Is he praying or is he shooting a photo? In Nilai.


After my last post, I got very sick.

Just recovered recently and I'm only gonna think of positive things from now onwards.

I am limiting myself to 2 cups of coffee (max) a day for now.
