Scattering Thoughts

Urban Landscape

  • Winter is beginning to get to me, meaning I’m getting SAD.
  • And since Troy keeps bugging me to post about it, I added a photolog to my portfolio site last week and I’ve been posting to it daily since. Leave a comment if you see something you like!
  • Troy and I have been watching some episodes from the Amazing Race Asia (downloaded off the Intarweb). As much as I want to cheer for the Indonesian team, I just can’t because they complain too much.
  • I’ve been listening to some soundtracks today. “Little Miss Sunshine” and “The Last Kiss” have great soundtracks, even if the latter sucked ass as a movie. “Leonard Cohen: I’m Your Man” soundtracks, however, are pretty sucky.
  • Speaking of movies, we saw Pan’s Labyrinth last weekend. It was a great movie but it was also quite graphic. Many times during the movie I just had to close my eyes so I didn’t have to see the scenes of violence.
  • I’ve got a wide angle lens for my dSLR camera now! And a working Canon SLR camera that comes with it but we’d probably never use! We could’ve just bought the lens without the camera but it would’ve cost us more. That’s the wonder of eBay.
  • Light Leaks Magazine Issue 5 has my photo in it and it’s now available for purchase! Troy bought me a year subscription to the magazine today, which is awesome.
  • Last weekend I made a shocking discovery: I have a small head! No wonder adult-sized hats are always too big for me yet children’s hats fit perfectly. And all these years I’ve been wasting the power of the small brain inside my small head on remembering useless pieces of information that only come in handy in games of Trivial Pursuit.
  • I feel like moving the furniture in the living room around to make it feel less claustrophobic, except there is no way I can do it. This is already the optimum layout. There’s no room for improvements, unless we threw out some pieces of furniture, which would be great, but I can’t see it happening either.
  • I didn’t realise how much higher the prices at Zehrs were compared to Sobeys until yesterday (Zehrs and Sobeys are Canadian grocery store chains).
  • I felt like going out for a walk with my camera just then, but not anymore.
  • I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.

  1. And I thought I was the only one who got sick of winter. I long for the warmth of Indonesia (and the people) again if only I could go visit my wife.

  2. If I may ask, where have you been downloading AR Asia? I’ve been wanting to watch it to get my fix of AR before the new edition starts but have not found it.
    BTW, after 27 years up here (originally from California) I am still really arrecred by SAD

  3. Thanks for posting even though you’re SAD. I love your photo portolio!
    (and I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up…)

  4. Beka, jakarta banjirrr, kalau loe masih tinggal di pondok betung, uah pasti gak bisa kemana mana.
    Sehat kan Bek,

  5. For the kind of crap we buy (which is nothing special, really) I think Sobeys has it cheaper. Plus, Sobeys has more fruit juice selections than Zehrs. Zehrs does have some pretty good deals sometimes but not most of the time.
