english no guud

i can't resist but to take a picture of this sign with my mobile phone when i saw it in a building at a neighbouring country...

my new 22 inch WOW

I just got a new Dell 22 inch LCD screen and a brand new CPU-1.8Ghz Core2dore with 1.5GB ram and now my surfing and photo editing experience just got a little better.
Even with such limited AGP memory (8MB), the performance is superb! On the other hand, i'm sad to know that my older computer which has fail to power up after a power surge recently will cost too much to repair in brunei. Anyway thanks to kelvin, rini and yanni(ex-colleagues) of CFking who help me on my purchase on the cpu. Last but not least, farewell to kelvin who is probably no longer at cfk by now or at least soon. Hope to catch up with u for tea/kopi some time...

Canon 580 EX Mark II Speedlite

I 've managed to try the canon 580EX Mark II speedlite during His Majesty's birthday celebration and I found that the exposure to be much more accurate then the old 580EX. According to Vincent of Interhouse, each exposure is being determine and fired off at an average rate rather then the old style 100% power then 30% power then it blackout, underexpose, underexpose and so on... Recycling time seem to be more consistant the previous model due to consistant average power output of each fire therefore it seemed like it was firing faster (but not). I rate this accessory 9.5/10 points - MUST GET!

Although this only really seem more obvious for its ourstanding performance during flash being straight-on. For bounce flash user, I believe the pro-canon user will not have much of a problem even on a 550ex. I doubt it'll have much effect for those who use LS2
