Scandal Tour Aftermath….

ArrivalHallWm
I landed in Singapore this morning at 5am, taking the overnight flight from Kansai to Singapore. The weather at both lands are good, and I did see a lot of nice night scenery while on the plane. Too bad, my most powerful lens with me is my Canon 50mm F1.4. On my Canon 7D, it is less suited for low light photography as compared to the 5D Mk2 and the 1Ds/x.

Then again, as limited as it is, I can still manage to take something like this….

Hmmmm….. wished that you were with me, watching it. It is quite nice.

For now, the photos are being uploaded into my workstation. For 225GB worth, it took 2 hours over a USB cable.

Well, at least I can enjoy my bottle of “Afternoon Red Tea” while catching up with everything I didn’t get to do while travelling in Japan.

Till the photos get transffered, I will be checking my emails. Stay with me at Josephtavern for my trip in Japan.

History of iPhone, In memory of Steve Jobs…

Saw this video made by CNET UK…

CNET UK Presents: History of the iPhone, dedicated to the memory of Steve Jobs from Drew Stearne on Vimeo.

The animation, although is dedicated to Steve Jobs, is actually very true to its title. From the animation, you will realised that, Steven Jobs did not had any of the compenent, or ideas, under his name. But his decision as the CEO of the company to go promote the idea of a hone that have a touch screen for most of the functional butons meant that the company will embark on a different journey different from many of the major market holders.

Steve Jobs’ decision shifted the world’s concept of a smart phone. It made the concept of dedicated physical buttons obselete for people who do not do a lot of texting on their phones.

And after laughing at Apple’s design for a while, they suddenly realised that, some people do like a phone which offers softkey.

And they are still trying to catch up to Apple, by releasing one phone after next, which follows the concept of having a full touch screen for navigation and communications.

So, what kind of phones do you like?

Clalaclan Philias Alter Armor Version

clalaclanFull1a

Clalaclan is a character in Shining Wind who is protrayed as a beautiful princess, much like Alicia in Aria.
However, she is a unique character as compared to other princesses in that, she has much lesser screen time, and that her existence is more of a supporting character.
Nonetheless, her prescence on the screen brightens up the whole scene and Alter capture her battle stance so that we can have a “little Clalaclan” with us on our table all the time.
