100dC Steamboat, Teppanyaki & BBQ Restaurant

My wife tried out a new steamboat shop in Kuchai Lama and she wanted to bring me over. It's called 100 degree Celcius Steamboat, Teppanyaki & BBQ Restaurant (100dC), funny name but I suppose it means water boiled at 100dC. People are queuing around the shop and we are lucky to get a table for two immediately.

The shop is spacious, clean and stylish. Immediately I scouted around the menu and start ordering, we are starving. The first page explains the restaurant concept, but I got no time to read! I need food ...

Being a special steamboat shop, it offers a total of 9 type of soup base for you to choose, including Original Soup, Tom Yam Soup, Curry Soup, Fish Head Soup, Porridge Soup, Golden Porridge Soup, Herb Soup, Bak Kut Teh Soup, and Thai Sour & Spicy Soup. Phew, long list, but good to know =) Not sure if I missed out anything here ... hehe ...

Photography: The Heart of Alfa Romeo 147

Been quite boring recently, so I took out my tripod & flashlite, pop-up my hood and start shooting. Now I know that taking photograph isn't easy! I snapped lots of photo, and finally manage to capture 2 ok view. Enjoy the heart of my Alfa Romeo 147 ...

1st Shot - I detached the flashlite and setup my tripod right at the front of the engine bay. I placed my flash on the left side handheld. Side flash effect, but need improvement over the flashlite intensity.

2nd Shot - This time, I setup the camera lower, closer to the body and placed the flashlite up right to give the engine cover a lift. Somehow, I cant control the intensity and only noticed the burst after loaded to the comp.
Not satisfy, so I photoshop a little and result as following:

This is the effect that I'm looking for on the 2nd attempt. I darken the entire photo to reduce the burst light and create dark background to avoid distraction. Nice?

After 1 hour of shooting in the dark, I"m a satisfied photographer and Alfa owner =) Shall try it some other day for other part of the Alfa to show its beauty.

Photography: Jom Scouting @ Pasar Pagi

Walking the Pasar with my mum, so took the chance to snap some shots. Enjoy.

Love the sunlight.

I'm using 50mm prime lens for all the shots, and it came off pretty well. Don't dare to snap too many photos, later shoo shoo by the owner saying I disturb their bussiness =P

What JPEG quality to use?

There is a never ending debate over the RAW vs JPEG in the web. For myself, I'm very lazy and always opt for the smallest file size to give biggest wow factor, so I always opt for the JPEG basic. Sometimes I will ask myself if I'm really taking up the correct JPEG quality setting, because professional always said, if you spent few thousands to buy the gear, why sacrifice the quality by choosing the lower quality photo?

Yeah, that confused me. But still, I'm very lazy and I hate managing too many photos that take me forever to sort out. Instead of listening to them, I did some test myself. Lets see.

Photo taken with Canon A570IS at 3072x2304 (Large) JPEG Fine and file size is 2,290KB. I cropped 100% and posted it here.

Photo taken with Canon A570IS at 3072x2304 (large) JPEG Basic and file size is 505KB. I cropped 100% and posted it here.

Can you see any difference? No? There is actually a major difference, which is the file size! If there is no difference in quality, then why bother taking JPEG in Fine format. Only wasting the file size, and I prefer to let my Canon A570IS or more intelligent Nikon D90 to compress it for me. The result is still satisfying. Sorry, testing it in the office, so only can do with A570IS.

I heard the difference will be more significant if shot is taken at night. Shall try again and post for your viewing. For now, I will stick to JPEG basic, maybe will try out RAW later when I have the free time to play with photoshop. Cheers.

Post Notes: Opps, forgotten to include the explanation on D90 settings. D90 photos quality basically divided into 2 category, as following:

Large (4288x2848)
Medium (3216x2136)
Small (2144x1424)

RAW (1:1 No compression)
Fine (1:4 compression)
Normal (1:8 compression)
Basic (1:16 compression)

In any circumstances, size shall not be sacrifice. The 12.3megapixels that is fitted onto CMOS sensor of D90 is incredible and everyone should make full use of every pixel. Each pixel is built-in with light sensor that detect primary colour of RGB, and the final result of the colour for that pixel is pick-up and recorded. By effectively reducing the size, the light sensor is shut-off to reduce the pixels count, why you would want that?

While jpeg compression is another story. By fully utilising the 12.3megapixels, the processor record every details but later it is converted into jpeg and apply compression accordingly. The compression process is similar to zip file, mp3 file or the TVB drama video compression that we watched. It effectively reduces the non-significant details that's not detectable by human eyes. If you are really picky, then you might be able to find some difference, but printing it out in 4"x3" photo frame, you will never notice the different. With example above, why bother doing fine?

I got a cheap computer and the processing of large amount of files is killing me. My joy still coming from shooting, viewing and sharing the photos in shortest time. So I am happy with the testing and will continue to stick to JPEG Large Basic setting for current time, until I'm ready to take up Photoshop for RAW.

Photography: Nikon Show @ Midvalley

This is one of the long overdue post. I'm walking around the Midvalley looking for a good deal in either the 50mm lens or flash unit, and came across Nikon Road Show. Remember that my friend told me there is a free sensor cleaning services, I take a peek at the booth. Too bad, it's close for the day, but Nikon Model Shootout is starting. Immediately I grab my D90 and start shooting.

All models on stage, total 11 of them.

A word of warning though, this post is long and loads of photos! So might take a while to load up. Thanks for seeing =) and comment much appreciated!

Loi Fatt Claypot Yee Mee @ Ipoh

Got lots of long overdue post that's hanging in my draft box, too busy to complete it. Anyway, I went back to hometown last weekend and my dad told me there is this BEST Claypot Yee Mee in town, saying I must try. I love yee mee since I'm in high school and am always in search for the better one wherever I go. So off we go to try it out at Loi Fatt Restaurant in Ipoh for breakfast.

Loi Fatt Restaurant is fully packed when we got there. 90% of the crowd is consuming Claypot Yee Mee, what a sight.

Photography: Night View from Pantai Senibong

As promised earlier, here are some night view shots from the Pantai Senibong. We are actually looking at Singapore shore and the industrial lights will calm water reflections will never fail to attract photographer like us. Enjoy.

Sembawang Shipyard in night action.

Senoko Power Plant in Singapore.

Learnt alot during the night shot. I set up the tripod on the deck and cannot get a clear shot. Finally give up and move to a concrete floor for another try. Still I'm unable to get a clear shot. After adjustment, finally get to f/11 and have some ok shot up there. Need further improvements!

Nasi Lemak @ Senibong

I'm quite sure that all Johorians will know about Senibong Nasi Lemak. I've heard about it since I arrived at JB 3 years ago but until yesterday night only I tried the famous Nasi Lemak.

Pusat Pelancongan Pantai Senibong financed by the government. Not sure what the goverment is financing though. Pantai Senibong is located at the side of the beach and you can see Singapore's island from here. Those lights are from Singapore and I've taken some pictures to show in next post.

On 10th Nov 2009 midnight, just right after the clock show 12.00, I log on to the GSC website trying to book myself tickets for the long awaited 2012 movie. Knowing Malaysian's style, I can't risk booking later or else I will need to wait for another 2 weeks to watch it. To my surprise! People already start reserving seats through online banking and within minutes, almost 30-40% of the seats are gone. I've got some problems with my credit card, so finally manage to settle with a good seat for midnight show. Crazy Malaysian, I know, that means me too.

We always opt to watch action movie at Cinema because of the sound system setup. Therefore, normally we don't miss any action pack or sci-fiction movie, and this definitely includes the 2012. The movie is great and as you can see from the poster, it's about earth tearing apart. So we are expecting lots of disasters, but the scale of the destruction is much more massive that we anticipated. The city sliding into the sea, and they meant it! It's crazy and you will actually worry. Some of the scenes showing how helpless and tiny human is sometimes disturbing.

No matter what is your expectations, this movie will definitely blow you away with all its explosive sounds and special effects. Some of the running scene looks fake, but you will love and cheer when they survive it. So overall, thumbs up and RM23.00 well spent. RM30 actually, including popcorns =P

I always choose the biggest hall for maximum sound impact, and it never fails me =P Our seats are island double seats at the side of the stairways similar to couple seat but with normal price. The only different? The arm rest cannot be lifted for close proximity =P but still nice =)

ps: watch out for the scene in the car, everyone claps their hands ...

Nikon Dream Set

Every photographer will have their own list of dream set that will cover every aspect of moment. I've pull together a list, which is best of the best lens available and I'm sure all Nikonians will agree as well. Let's see what we got here:

1. AF-S Nikkor 50mm f1.4G priced at RM2,188.00

2. AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm f2.8G ED priced at RM6,888.00

3. AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f2.8G ED priced at RM6,688.00

4. AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8G ED VR priced at RM7,388.00

5. AF-S Micro Nikkor 105mm f2.8G IF-ED priced at RM3,688.00

The entire range of the lens I've listed will cost RM26,840.00 and yes, you will get some discount, so how about rounding it up to RM20,000. WTF! All the lens listed above have superior quality and are FX lens. So we will need a FX camera to go with it.

I think the compact body of Nikon D700 (RM9,688.00) is a must as backup camera while supporting the main body of supreme Nikon D3 (RM16,288.00) or maybe the highest professional range of Nikon D3X (RM29,988.00).

Yeah I know, I'm dreaming. But everyone dream, that's why I called it dream set =P

Basic in Image Sensor

Since I started this blog, there are more and more people asking me questions regarding dSLR. Most of them didn't rush out the door to get one after I've told them the advantages, mainly due to the price, of course. But I can see all of them are very interested in photographing. The main obvious advantageous is, of course, the sensor size. In which I realise lots of people do not understand how it works. So here go a short tutorial on sensor & megapixels myth. (to fill my blog coz no updates also =P)

Image Sensor found in Nikon D90

Ages ago when we are still living in the caves, we do not know what is megapixels. It does not exist, and all we care is not the camera built quality, but the film itself. There are high & low quality films that determines the outcome of our photos. Film SLR is only used by professional with professional interchangable lens.

Things started to get complicated when the 0 and 1 come into pictures, the logic for electronics world. Imagine a sensor is actually a solar panel, it's the same actually, so no need to imagine. It take in lights wavelength and convert it into electrons. This electrons will then be fed into the image processor for processing.

35mm Full Frame:  Nikon D700, Nikon D3, Canon 5d

APS-C (Nikon) : Nikon D300, Nikon D90, Nikon D5000

APS-C (Canon): Canon 50D, Canon 500D, Canon 1000D

Four Thirds System: Olympus PEN-E-P1

1/1.63": Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

1/1.7": Canon Powershot G9, Canon Poweshot SD950IS

1/1.8": Nikon Coolpix P5000

1/2.5": Canon Powershot A570IS, Canon IXUS 860IS, Sony Cybershot DSC-W80, Sony Cybershot DSC-H9

The sensor size is actually equivalent to a film size. The normal film size we normally used is 35mm measured in sensor length. Same goes to sensor size. Looking at the table, the only equivalent quality of sensor to the normal 35mm film we used ages ago is the full frame sensor in highest specifications of dSLR! After so many years, we finally picking up to what our grandfather is using. Funny, but true. Most compact are 1/2.5" sensor size, and that explains why the quality is not comparable to a dSLR.

The 2nd affecting factor is the pixels. Imagine a piece of land (the sensor size) is built with concrete divider that separate the the entire piece of land into 800 equal lengths and 600 equal widths. Each concrete box is a pixel. The land now have 800x600 pixels or equivalent to 480,000 pixels. Pixels is defined without considering the size of the sensor, therefore, imagine cramming 10,200,000 pixels (10.2megapixels) into that tiny 25mm2 (1/2.5") size while the same pixels is comfortably fit into the 864mm2 (35mm) sensor. These small pixels/dots will combine becoming a photos. That my friend, is the power of technology and different in quality.

Pixel Art in low pixel array arrangement

Once you understand this, you will know that why megapixels does not matter because the sensor size is limited. No matter how many megapixels you throw in, the size is still the same. Of course that it's still important that higher megapixels sensor do provide higher resolution, in which avoid pixelisation during large printout. However, it's still only a very minor unnoticable improvement over the advantageous offer by larger sensor.

However, do take note that pixelisation (boxy edge) still will happen if you use a small megapixels setting in dSLR and print out the photo in a very large poster paper. That's when the megapixels come into the picture. Other than that, it's not noticable in small printout out like 4"x3" photos we normally keep. Considering the photos printer is 300dpi (dots per inch), then your 4"x3" photos will need 1,200 x 900 pixels/dots only. All other pixels will be deleted during printing, just because the printer cannot make use of the rest of the pixels. So, why bother shooting higher resolution?

I kept my D90 setting to highest resolution but maximum jpeg compression. That give me the highest resolution, and I rely on the camera processor to "intelligently" compress the non-relevant pixels in my photos. I will normally get 3-4Mb for each photo that I've taken in 4288x2848 (12.2megapixels). If you take raw, you should get size of the photo similar to the megapixels, in this case, 12.2Mb. As I said, each pixel is converted into 0 or 1, therefore 1 bytes for 1 pixel =)

Jpeg compression in Fine or Normal determines the rate of compression you choose. It's similar to zip or rar program that we used in documents. Just that this time, the camera will determine which pixels is not important / repetitive in the photos to human eyes, that will still produce the same quality. It should be the best quality to size combination. If there is a job, then I will start shooting RAW, but not now.

There are still other technology considerations in sensor advantageous, which too vast to cover. Maybe next post. Those are like CCD, CMOS, sensor built, how lights is captured, noise, colour, different in Nikon / Canon system and etc. I shall write more when I'm free. Thanks for listening and do correct me if I'm wrong somewhere.

Auntie Lora Kopitiam - Asam Laksa @ Cheras

After almost a month of my friend's wedding, I've finally have time to meet them up to pass them my photography works. They are kind enough to treat me and my wife some special breakfast in Cheras. Asam Laksa and Prawn Mee at Auntie Lora Kopitiam. This shop is located around the shop area next to Cheras Leisure Mall, GPS coordinate at the bottom of the page.

The shop view. That's a big prawn they hang there. Earlier duck hanging, now prawn hanging. Trendy?

Nikon Speedlight SB-600

Before I buy my Nikon D90, I've heard stories that a dSLR is not harnessing it's full power without an external flash. The major strength of a dSLR is due to the flash ability that's design to work with the camera. Still, an external flash unit is expensive and the cheapest Nikon Speedlight SB-400 still cost RM400.00. However, SB-400 do have limitations and that's the reason it's cheaper. I did my researched and opt for the wait a little longer for this baby. Need to save the money!

Finally! The Nikon Speedlight SB-600 joined the family on 1st November 2009.

The beautiful Nikon Speedlight SB-600 box. Nikon always have the same design for its boxes, but my heart still get all the adrenalin rush when un-packing every one of it. Dreaming of the moment with wide angle =)

Photography: Potrait Test with AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D

Promised a friend of mine that I will get some potrait for her so here it goes. She just graduated from some beauty make-up course which she is currently officially qualified to do make up for wedding and etc. Anyone interested can drop me a text, I will hook you up.

Close-up potrait. A little shaky and blurness over the whole photo. My skill problem, sorry.

The New Windows

Microsoft has launched its new operating system, the Windows 7 on 22nd October 2009. It's been reviewed and claimed to be one of the most stable OS ever created. I played with it when I'm walking the shopping mall yesterday, and indeed it give me a very good impression. The earlier gimmick on the features of vista is gone and simplicity with updated look is featured. I'm going to give it a try in my desktop when I got back.

For the meantime, Microsoft also launched the Microsoft Surface earlier this year. It's all possible with human minds. A preview of the Windows Surface features for your viewing pleasure below. Nice, wondering when it will come to Malaysia.

Restoran Hoppy - Duck Rice @ SS2

We are running around the PJ area and got hungry. We are always hungry. So we opt for duck rice, yeah again. We are really duck lover, so duck rice again. I'm going to make a ranking list for duck soon, after i post up all the shops then we vote ok =P

For this time, we go to the shop that we visit regularly. It's called the Restoran Hoppy at SS2.

I believe lots of people will know this place because the giant duck they hang outside the shop!!

Malaysia weather so hot, really roast duck lo!

Hoya UV Filter

I've finally got the Hoya UV filter for my AF Nikkor 50mm 1.8D lens. Lens filter are very important, which I made a mistake in delaying the purchase for almost a month. Luckily I haven't done anything funny to make me regret it badly. Wondering what I'm thinking earlier.

For all dSLR out there, please buy the filter for all your lens when you buy it. Minimum shall be UV filter that you can leave it on without removing it to ensure 100% protection. The advantages are 3 folds, improve clarity, improve colour balance and extremely important protection to the front optic of your lens. Other filters do have special effects on the photos, like polarising or colour filter, but minimum general UV filter is compulsary.

I have not study all the brand and the differences but recommendation from my sifus out there is Hoya brand. I've got the Hoya UV filter for both my lens now. It's very cheap and crystal clear filter, so no reason for you to skip it when you are getting a few hundreds / thousands ringgit lens.

This is what I get for my lens. The Hoya General UV Filter 52mm. The filter is crystal clear but not comparable to Hoya Pro1D type, which cost almost double. I noticed my photos do look better with the lens on, but importantly it doest what it's designed for, protection! I should try out the Pro1D next time =)

This is how it looks like when coupled to my AF Nikkor 50mm 1.8D lens. Like the word "Made in Japan", feels high class and the classic bold wording definitely add class to my already classic lens.

A clearer look on the filter quality. It is actually colourless but probably due to reflection. This is the 1st layer of protection to whatever you got behind the filter. Cheap protection for expensive lens. Nice.

Bangkok Village Thai Cuisine @ JB

It's a on-duty weekend again and we are not able to go back KL. It's a sad and lonely Friday night, so all of us are crying for a break-out from our invisible chain to do something special. My colleague, Simon, remembered a recommendation from the subcontractor about a Thai food somewhere in Johor Jaya, which is quite nice.

Excited, so off we go to search for this place. It's called Bangkok Village.

A visible sign board beside the road for the restaurant. The restaurant is kinda dark but if you take notice, it's not hard to find.

The Manhattan Fish Market

I'm in Jusco Tebrau last week with my colleagues and as usual, we ended up brain-storming of what to eat for our dinner. We walk around the ground floor and came to the Manhattan Fish Market, so I asked them if interested. They have never tried it before, so set! Time for some torch burning seafood craze ...

The Manhattan Fish Market is basically everywhere. As long as there is a shopping mall with good flow of human traffic, then there is a very big chance it will be there also. I first tried it last 3 years ago in Sunway Pyramid and love it since then.

The franchise setting of the entrance for The Manhattan Fish Market. It's the same everywhere, same goes to the food quality, so don't worry.

Tung Lok Hin Restaurant - Bak Kut Teh @ Ipoh

This is one of the long overdue post, but definitely something not to miss for all my readers. Food, and back to Ipoh again. Ipoh is really packed with nice food everywhere.

We are looking for some meaty breakfast, so opted for Bak Kut Teh, but the original shop we frequented , Soon Lee Bak Kut Teh, was closed for the day. We ended up in this restaurant just a street away. It looks good, packed and the aroma of the meat is pulling us in to grab a table.

Tung Lok Hin Restaurant that sell only Bak Kut Teh in the morning. Can you see the people standing around the shop waiting for seats? Don't let the shop bad appearance drive you away.

Photography: James & Ely Wedding

I've been very busy on the last weekend with 2 wedding assignments. One of it is my best friend, James' Wedding. I took over thousand photos for both weddings and it's taking me forever to sort it out.

James is my college mate since 2001 and since then we have been friends till university and even work colleagues. He is one of my best friend around and my apology to him for not able to make it to be his "heng dei" to help him get his wife from the evil "ji mui". Hope I can make it up with my photos in your wedding dinner. It's one of the grandest hall I've seen with impressive arrangement. I enjoyed it very much.

Congratulations and Wish James & Ely Together Forever. Hope you guys love the photos. Cheers.

Nikkor Acronyms

Nikkor is a lens brand that's manufactured by Nikon Corporation. The technology is so wide that they come out with so many acronyms for their lens, which proves to be confusing for all beginners, that means me too. So for my future reference and your knowledge, I list it all down here. I'm dSLR user, so old lens for manual SLR won't be cover here.

Additional Features

Yeah! Just realised blogger has included some new features and I'm trying it out.

New layout with "read more" options for each post. I've been looking up and down for this to avoid loading up your bandwidth when looking at my site, so finally got it up and working. I've included 10 posts on my main page with "read more" function to make it more compact and less weight on bandwidth. Choose & read, your time, your choice.

I've also included my gear & wish list section on the column for your reference. People are asking me what I'm using for photographing, so here you go on the list. The wish list show my plan on future purchase. Keep looking. Cheers!

Nikon D90 Review - Reasons why you should buy one

I've been trying a few times to complete this post, but not manage to pull it together. Finally got it completed, a little messy and boring without photos, so bear with me on the crap, alright.

The purchase of my 1st dSLR is back-dated to July 2009. Many of my friends are surprise that I go direct into mid-range dSLR although I've never own one before. Their thought is half-true only, because I do own a semi-manual Canon Powershot A570IS. Photographing has been my interest since high-school and my envy towards my friends able to join the photography club in high school follow me till I graduated.

The dream pull a few years till I'm financially capable enough to afford hobbies, like photography. The dSLR still cost a fortune after I start working, so I opt for the cheaper option of semi-manual compact to test out if I'm still into photography. I chose the Canon Powershot A570IS, priced at RM999.00 when I bought it in mid 2007.

The Canon Powershot A570IS, that's capable of giving me the control of a typical dSLR only with a much smaller sensor. It quickly give me the rush to improve my skill and I studied lots of website about the aperture, shutter speed, ISO range, noise, exposure, flash usage and etc. Soon, I'm shooting all photos with manual control and that's when the complain about the limitation of a compact sensor hit me. I still have this loyal A570IS with me all the time.

No matter how hard I try, the result is just not comparable to a real dSLR. The hunt for an affordable upgrade started. I studied almost all entry dSLR in the market, particularly for Canon and Nikon. D40, D60, D80, D90, D300, 400D, 450D, 500D, D5000, 1000D and etc. Finally with help from my wife, I settled down with a Nikon D90, not really an entry level dSLR but a mid-range instead. The justification for such expensive purchase? Read on for 17 reasons to buy D90.

Kuey Tiaow Kia - Restaurant Dang Ren @ JB

I've got lots of overdue post that pending my input, but no choice, too busy with my work. So the plan is to clear out the food review ASAP and spend more time to blog about my life experiences.

This time, I have something special to introduce. Every places have their own local specialty that's not able to be copied over to another state, no matter if the chef move over. The reason is plainly due to the cultural values and ingredients sourcing. A good example are famous Nga Choy Kei from Ipoh, Bakuteh from Klang, Nam Heong Kopi from Kemaman and etc.

How about JB? The answer is Kuey Tiaow Kia. I assured you that those that have never been to JB would never know about this food. I don't know it existed also until a local friend told me about it. So the hunt is up to find the best one around, we ended up here.

Restoran Dang Ren that claimed to sell the secret Kuey Tiaow Kia recipe from ancestor on Kuey Tiaow Kia. The shop is located in Johor Jaya and it opened for lunch and dinner. The signboard mentioned fish head also, but it's not something available.

Future of Personal Mobility

It seems like we are not so distant away from the future prediction of no need in walking or running anymore. Honda has developed the personal mobility device codenamed U3-X, that is scheduled to be launch very soon. It has been tested and released to the public media.

It featured self-balancing
technology that is developed by Honda for it's first robotic machine ASIMO. The wheel itself is also complicated with smaller wheel installed perpendicular to the main drive that allow any direction movement. Will it cost a bomb? Please expect it does, but same as all technology, eventually it will become affordable to everyone. However, the wheel seems small and fragile, can it be use outdoor? Not sure, but again as technology develop, it will eventually.

Some specifications. Fully charged, it is ready to roll for entire hour at maximum speed of 6km/hr. It weighs around 10kg and controlled by body weight on the sit pad. Rumour it is scheduled to be public released on the 41st Tokyo Carshow, that's 24th October 2009 =)

Welcome to the future. Honda, the REAL Power of Dreams.

Alfa 147 with Mille Miglia Emotion Rims

Alright, been blogging about food for quite long, and it's time for some car modifications! Alright, first to come is a new set of rims. I blogged about it in my earlier post, the Mille Miglia Emotion 17x8.

Finally got time and manage to pull my bella over to the "pedicure shop" for some beauty works =)

A view of the shop with my bella being pampered. Hope she likes it ...
