Born in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia and moved to Johore Bahru (south of Malaysia and the southern most city of Asia continent, heeheehee) at the age of 6. Later studied in Sydney Australia and worked in Hong Kong after graduating, currently living in Bremen Germany.

I am not new to camera but VERY new to photography, can’t even call myself amateur. Still struggling all the time with composition, colours, technique, almost everything that you can think of. Fotolog and flickr both opened my eyes and would really like to be an amateur someday. I love taking macro and night shot at the moment, all critiques are welcome!!

My camera:
1. Ricoh film camera. I got this from my elder sister when I went to Australia but sadly I don’t know where is it now :-(.
2. Canon EOS-10 (film). This was the first camera I bought with my own money more than 10 years ago, but seldom took photos due to the expansive development cost. It is still in my collection but never used since I went digital. I love the build in flash of this camera :-); don’t know why Canon drops the design in digital EOS.
3. Olympus C-2000Z. My first digital camera and served me well since day one. Now this is my underwater camera but am thinking of replacing it with a Canon A series.
4. Canon EOS-300D. This is the camera I used 99.99% of the time, still happy with it and is patiently waiting for the replacement of 20D.

My Lenses:
1. Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 SP AF Aspherical XR Di LD (IF) – this is my walk around lens;
2. Tamron 90mm f/2.8 SP AF Di Macro;
3. Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM;
4. Canon EFS 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 – the kit lens.

1. Olympus PT-010 underwater housing;
2. Minolta DiMAGE Scan Dual III.

Wish list:
1. 1.4x and/or 2x tele-converter;
2. Extension tubes;
3. Canon Speedlite 550EX;
4. A wide angle lens, perhaps Tamron 11-18mm.
5. A zoom of over 400mm, perhaps Tamron 200-500mm,

This is only possible when I have money, let see how many of them can I have in a year time :-).
