Every moment, I'm thinking.
And I feel that my thinking is much better than my physical self.
I think about everything.
Love, relationship, life, family, myself, surroundings...
My thoughts are like sudden inspirations.
They come and go in just a click.
To me, thinking is a way of talking to myself.
My thoughts are little secret blog entries inside me.
But, the entries are not recoverable.
Unless I pen them down as I think.
That is why, I don't like to reveal my unhappy feelings.
When I'm feeling down, I think a lot.
I think about memories that triggered the unhappiness.
Is this good or bad?

It is a simple word but it carries many deep thinking.
When we say "I love someone", what does it carry?
What Love means to me is different to what Love means to you.
How different is Love to Fancy, Like?
Is it the depth of feeling?
Or it's just the power of the word?
The Love world is so complicated.
Complicated, that I cannot find a way into that world.
Complicated, that I cannot understand the way it works.
We have heard of the song L.O.V.E.
Each letter of the word Love represents something.
L - LOOK
O - ONLY one
V - VERY extraordinary
E - EVEN more
What exactly is Love?
Is it wrong to love someone?

What is light leak?
Light leak refers to exposure of undeveloped film to light.
Light leaks can be accidental or on purpose.
And... My roll of film just happened to have accidental light leak!
It happened when I was trying to rewind the film back into the canister.
The rest of the images can be found here.

I finished my very first long run today.
10km at the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2008.
Starting at the Esplanade bridge at the traffic junction at Fullerton Hotel, I began my run with the ESPN tv crew at the top filming the event.
I managed to find a friend who was running alone.
That gives me a running partner.
The morning weather was rather nice.
Just nice and warm with breeze now and then.
Flagging the women's race at 0815, we ran down the CBD area toward Prince Edward Rd exit, round the marina bay station, up the ECP towards Rochor Rd exit, turn in at suntec, turning left to the F1 pitstop, pass the Singapore Flyer and Esplande, back to the Esplanade bridge and then finally right turn towards City Hall building, the finishing line.
Along the way, we had our own fun. Jogging and walking, the drinks stations and not forgetting time for short photo taking.
*Pictures from Pei Suen's hp.*
At the starting pen.
On the ECP with Flyer at the background and cars zooming past right behind us.
We made it! Past the Finishing line.
Our champion-chips on our shoes.
Us with our medals.

Finishing time: 1:47:07
That's 13 minutes faster than my minimum target finishing time of 2hr or more.

If you consider the waiting + travelling + scanning time, then it's not so fresh from the lab.
Anyway, I've managed to finish the roll of film inside my FM2.
The film is about 1 month old inside my camera.
And since I'm down near Chinatown area, might as well just finish it and sent for developing.
Here are some of the images fresh from the scanner.
Classroom wall under reno.
The lonely man.
This uncle gave me a thumbs up after I shot him. :)
I'm still not used to using my new scanner.
And I get rather frustrated when it does not detect my frames properly (especially those shot from my Holga) >.<
More of the images can be found here.

It was a horrible experience in collecting the race pack.
Arriving at noon at the Expo,
I was greeted by the long queue outside Hall 5, the collection hall.
I joined the queue at near the half of Hall 6.
Then more crowd came and the queue behind me got longer, very long.
Apparently, there's also a big crowd inside the hall waiting in different queues to collect the race pack.
So they are waiting for the crowd inside to clear before allowing the next batch of crowd to enter.
And so I queued outside for about 30min to 45min.
Luckily, one of the officials came out to call for those taking part in the 10km run.
That cuts my queuing up outside the hall, waiting to get in.
But entering the hall at the 10km lane was another 30min-45min of queuing up.
Actually, the queue inside the hall could be much faster if not for those office people who helped dunno how many people collect the race pack. They held up the service time at the counter and the adjacent counter had already served a few participants.
Finally, I got my race pack, bib and running shirt about about 2pm.
That's like 2 hr since I started queuing up.
After that checked out the sports expo next door.
I like the way they pack the bib, champion-chip and safety pins into 1 nice ziplock bag.
10km this sunday.
Target finish time: 2hr +
Go! Go! Go!
it's getting sucky using contribute cos I had force quit the software on my mac like 4 times just now to get it working.
or is it the apple report that makes the software works?
Contribute doesn't make contribution easy, rather it makes contribution more frustrating.

Woohoo, I just got Adobe CS4 install in my MacBookPro.
And I'm testing a blog entry via Contribute CS4, one of the software in the package.
I'm now typing directly onto my blog, skipping all the new post section that we will see when we want to insert a new entry.
this looks cool.
but hitting the 'enter' button gives me 2 lines down instead of 1.
that I have to solve using the shift button.
oh... the software allows me to embed PDF documents here to.
but i wonder how will my viewers dl the PDF files? hmm...
tempted to get the CS4?
