037/365 – Twisted.

Today was really sunny! I had the chance to take a landscape photos of the skytrain path – which is something i’ve always wanted to do. I know its suppose to be product day today, but i just couldnt pass up a sunny day considering that it’s just been raining and raining and raining!

036/365 – Basti

I was at the mall today, grabbing an olympic pin when i saw basti! he’s my day 36! He’s my friend’s cousin! what can i say about basti? hmm.. He’s so much fun to play with. One day, we were playing wii sports – bowling and when i won, he got really pissed off and started throwing things at me – which was pretty funny, but got really serious really fast when he threw the wii remote at me – man it really hurt. Tsk tsk tsk…

035/365 – Old Toys.

This was from a couple of years back. I dont even know what the name of the actual character is but all that i know is that it’s from the Lego Bionicles Series. I have 4 full boxes of Bionicles in storage. And i’ve kept the original packaging, and all of the original pieces. I’ve bought EVERY SINGLE bionicle that came out at that time. I’m sure that they have something new and gay now, but these were the beginning of it. What attracted me was the story line and look of the toys. They looked so evil, and i really liked that. I collected these with my brother, up until the day we realized that we’ve spent more than 2000 dollars on these toys. I think the day we stopped was when we looked at each other and said, “WOW! we could have bought a PS2 and some games to go with it!” hahaha. Good times.

034/365 – Chocolate Milk!

Oh my goodness!! I REally really really like chocolate milk! ITS SOOOOOO GOOODDDDD!

today, i didnt really know what i was going to take a picture of. When the clock hit 11.00PM, i was panicking because i didnt know what to post. When i went downstairs to grab some milk,i realized that i had to post a shot of it. I set the camera on a tripod, change the drive mode to “speed mode” on the 5D and i asked my mom to hit and hold the shutter as i poured the milk into the cup. It took me two cups of milk to get this shot! – i drank both of them. YUmmm…

033/365 – Cha-ching!

When i woke up this morning, i found out that class was canceled. So i exchanged the 1 hour and 30 minutes of time that i would spend on the public transit system, and dedicated it towards something utterly useless – looking up photo gear online on b&h’s online store. While i was doing that, i phoned up janelle to say good morning (as i always do) and she made me promise her that i’d stop wasting my time and go study instead. So i promised her just that, closed my laptop and prepared to go downstairs to study.

I opened my bedroom door and found my dad standing in front of me with a catalog in hand. He hand me the winter 2009 product catalog from b&h. It arrived in the mail! MAN! It just wouldn’t leave me this morning! Sigh. Anyways, i was able to put it down and study instead. just as i promised. It was sealed earlier, i opened it up to take this picture.

032/365 – Addicted.

I am addicted to media arts – both photo and video. It takes me away from the stressful life of nursing and it frees me to be as creative as i please. I am so addicted to media arts that i can spend the entire day in front of the computer editing photo or video, or i can search up photography or videography related gear. I also participate in active forums that talk about just that – media arts.

Today, i spent the entire morning and afternoon finishing up my clinical PAF and studying for my upcoming monday patho exam. also, i was able to edit and put together a video from janelle’s birthday party last night – the link can be found below.

For the who are curious, The left monitor has Lightroom open and the right monitor has Adobe Premier CS4 open. I should be editing with vegas pro 9 soon.

031/365 – Happy Birthday Love!

Today is a very special day! It’s Janelle’s 22nd birthday. So happy birthday love!

A couple of days back, i asked Janelle what she wanted for her birthday. She said that she wanted homemade cupcakes, so i did just that. I baked her some cupcakes – It’s a chocolate cupcake with vanilla frosting and green sprinkles – green is her favorite color.

I used to bake back in high school, and i dont remember it to be this tiring or remember taking this long. I started baking at 8.30pm and finished by midnight. I’m just lucky i didnt run into any spills or any problems with my mixer.

You guys might like to take a look at the behind the scenes shot for this photo.

030/365 – *fujifilm* instax.

I am going to try and highlight a new product every friday. The product be anything, basically, it’ll just help me try to improve my photography.

I am trying to create new themes for every day. So friday will be PRODUCT DAY! I just want different themes thats all. Saturdays could be landscape days. Mondays could be skytrain days. i dont know. i’ll just make it up as I go. But friday is product day for sure!

So the fujifilm instax is a instant film camera. Its a nice replacement for the retired polaroids (i think they are bringing it back thought). I bought the instax camera from ebay for 80 dollars and It came with 110 pieces of film for an addition 80-100 dollars. So far, i have only used up 20 or so films. I have to power through them next year before they expire in OCT 2010.

for those interested on how i shot this, look below.

028/365 – Glue ‘er down.

On early tuesday and wednesday mornings, I usually find myself at Lions Gate Hospital (LGH). I work on 4 east, helping the acute population. Every term since term 2, Langara students have been assigned to make a poster and leave it for the ward. The poster can be of any topic that could be benefit the ward. We decided as a clinical group that we’d be helping people by teaching them a thing or two about body mechanics.

So after clinical, we headed to Ka Wai’s house and worked on the project. This took us about 2-3 hours to complete, and we were done in 1 day. I guess all of really have to do now is complete the references.

Now that the project is out of the way, there are two more things ahead of me; my clinical final PAF, and my last patho midterm next friday.
