Days Gone By

After Sunrise

Since the last time I posted, I have:

  • given in to the temptation and bought a Hasselblad 500C/M camera outfit a.k.a. the Hasselblad 500 Classic off eBay.
  • bought various accessories for the said Hasselblad even though I hadn’t had the camera in hand.
  • ventured the foreign world of video-gaming in order to give Troy a Nintendo DS Lite for his birthday, which was on the 20th this month (got it from evil Walmart, no less, because it was the only place that still had any in stock less than two weeks before Christmas).
  • also bought a game called Chibi Robo: Park Patrol to accompany the DS console which turns out to be the dumbest game ever to me, but Troy seems to enjoy playing it.
  • taken the most bus rides in one day in the history of my life (6 different buses, 7 bus drivers).
  • found out from a grumpy bus driver that bus fare is now $2.50 instead of $2.25 and apparently has been since July this year (obviously I hadn’t taken a bus ride in ages).
  • been amused by how mothers suddenly become video-gaming experts around Christmas-time.
  • thought to myself that if I ever decided to become a novelist and needed to get inspirations for characters in my story, all I’d have to do is take a bus ride and observe the passengers.
  • had my mango seed sprouted, and the plant is getting bigger and bigger every day!
  • marvelled at how the year fly by.
  • been looking forward to the new year and even more exciting adventures of Troy and Firda. 🙂

  1. Wow! A Hasselblad! Congratulations. That’s one heck of a camera. No, I never owned one, but that was always the one to get.
    I can’t wait to see the photos from it and you.

  2. That Hasselblad 500 C/M is piece of magic Firda!! Otherwise you may try Brownie…Looking at your collection, a full format wide angles and a 50mm leica would be a dream team…
