What’s Important?

February 26th, 2016 by kamkuey

There seems to be many things in life which are important, but we do not have enough time, energy and effort to attend to those things which are important to us. As as we get mature, and as we climb higher in the corporate ladder, and as we add more things in out lives, we have more and more important things.

We continue to pay attention to those things which have more values. However, as we grow, so does out responsibilities. Work, spouse, family. We might drop some of them off. Like for example how we love to conquer the gaming world, or take long rides on our motorcycles. Or have a 3-day fishing trip off shore. It may be taking that bi-annual backpacking holiday.

Some of theses ‘important’ things may no longer serve anything of value to us. So we drop them, so that we may concentrate on those which brings more values.

Neglecting your pet doggie? Maybe?

It’s sad, but its the truth.

Black & White Photos

November 2nd, 2014 by kamkuey

Recently, there’s a new challenge going about Facebook. Basically, a simple challenge of posting up a black and white photo each day for 5 days and nominating one other person to take up the challenge.

Most of the photos were dug out from the deep recesses of my backup hard drive. This one in particular was probably taken a long time ago, when I first got my ultra wide angle lens and decided to take a photo of the sun peeking from behind the cloud, casting a spray of light beams.

This one I like to entitle ‘Pray’. But I am thinking Hope would better. No?

Taken somewhere between Albany and Perth. I was trying to capture the setting sun, but my brother was in the frame. I asked him to move aside for a bit but he gave me this pose before walking out of frame. Somehow it adds a bit more character to the photo.

Another photo taken in Australia, this time I remember this place, Busselton.

Somehow, sometimes, black and white photos leaves a bit more to the imagination. I find that black and white photos have a bit more character, a bit more edge to it. But that’s just me.

Fanboys

October 8th, 2014 by kamkuey

The latest issue of the new iPhone 6 Plus be a bit bendy has created headlines. It has also spurred heated debates and arguments all over social media. You see a lot of postings on facebook and other social media about the iphone’s bendy feature and it’s features which is similar to a 2004 phone from a rival company.

So what is it about this issue, and many other iphone’s lacking of something, that is so heated? Does it really matter that the iphone does not have a bigger screen? Or now that it has, does it matter that it now has a bigger screen?

It should not matter since you obviously will not be buying an iphone.

It does not matter at all. But…  what matters is the fact that the iphone fanboys talk about the iphone as if it’s an object sent down to earth by the gods for us mere mortals. An object to be worshipped as we mere mortals are not worthy of it.

That is the issue.

The iphone is a splendid phone. I would be using an iphone if it was not that expensive.  It’s really out of my budget for a phone. I do have an ipad though, and had an imac and would probably be getting a macbook soon. So Apple do come out with splendid products, the iphone included. I am a fan of phones, regardless of who made the phone. Some phones lack certain features, some phones have more features. Just like WindowsPhone, it’s lacking in many ways compared to it’s rivals. But it’s a wonderful phone to use. I have used almost all makes of phones. From Nokia to Motorola, to Samsung and Xiaomi and almost everything in between.

 

This includes the Blackberry Bold 3 (actually Bold 2 as well).

 

As well as the Nokia E61, the grandfather of this E72.

I am guilty of making fun of the iphone and it’s features. But that is just it… fun. When I make fun of the iphone, I am actually making fun of those fanboys. Knowing that they will get upset and try to defend the iphone.

I’ve got news for you fanboys, there is nothing fun to make out of the iphone. It’s you that people make fun of.

Oh.. and this goes to all fanboys. Regardless if you are a fanboy of the iphone or any other phone for that matter. There’s more to the world of smartphones than just your tiny little world of whatever phone you have on the alter with incense, oranges, myrrh or suckling pig offers.
