THE POWER OF RINGLIGHT!

[RE-EDITED BLOGPOST]

Many of you have been requesting a blogpost of me showing you guys how do I take photos at home, truth is I have actually invested in a Ringlight to enhance my photos. 

FIRST OF ALL TO NOT CONFUSE YOU GUYS, THERE ARE 2 TYPES OF RINGLIGHT AND LET ME SHARE YOU MY EXPERIENCE ON HOW I WASTED MY MONEY PURCHASING THE WRONG ONE. 

Initially, I thought there was only one type of ringlight. I made my way down to Sim Lim Square and I was cheated for the mini-ringlight (below) for $150 which I checked online it was only $30. 

This is the portable one, let me state out the disadvantages.

  • It is not strong enough to take photos (light source is not strong enough)
  • Only can last for 45mins after charge ( though stated 2 hours )
  • You only can use manual focus, because it's too heavy for my lens

I'm not trying to say that this product is bad, but i think if you use this to take close shots, like food, other items it will be very useful. Especially doing advertorials on items like if you wanna take close shots la! But also didn't regretted getting this. Anyway look at the one below


Exclude the camera and the tripod. I got this LARGE ringlight at Funan for $150. Inclusive of the camera stand. It's freaking GORGEOUS. (Updated 2013: Sim Lim sells this at $90 now ) 


Now I got 2 ring lights at home, I don't have to worry having ugly photos. LOL
The benefits when you have a ringlight at home:
  • Sharper photos
  • Clearer photos
  • You don't have to worry if you are taking shots at night...
  • The super chio, eye effect ( Main purpose of me getting the ringlight )
  • You can play around with the lighting and trust me the photo will look good no matter what.

Here are some photos I took last time using my ringlight, now I'm very lazy to take photos now unless if there is an advert that requires me to take photos! Hahahaha! 


WHY NOT INVEST IN A RINGLIGHT TODAY? :D

My experience at Gills N Shells (Lavender)

I was invited for a food tasting session at Gills N Shells not long ago to try out their new dishes. Gills N Shells is a restaurant/drinking place that is inspired by the ocean. The restaurant specialises in seafood, thus they offer a vary of seafood dishes. They are dedicated to serve quality food with the best quality. Gills N Shells is easily accessible as they are located just behind Hotel Boss facing the river. The nearest train station is at Lavender MRT Station, thus it will only take a 5 minutes walk to get to this restaurant.

Gills N Shells recently launched their seafood platter served in a dim sum basket. As mentioned, there is a variety of seafood choices you can select from. However, there is a minimum order of three seafood choices. If you are an adventurous person or you can eat a lot, you may wish to order the All-in-A Basket Special. It comes along with all the seafood listed in the menu.

Taipei Day 1: Ximending 西门町

Link:  http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2015/03/taipei-day-1-ximending.html

Hi guys! Okay, as you can see from the title above, I'm going to blog about my Taiwan trip I went 2 weeks ago. It was a last minute getaway trip because I was only told a week before the trip, I totally freaked out because you know my wish is to visit Taiwan and finally it has been fulfilled. So in your mind you must be wondering, 1 week only, how are you going to find a hotel and book your air tickets in time?

Thanks to http//www.expedia.sg I was able to find my accommodation plus in a good area some more! Wanted to stay at Ximending but most of the hotels there were fully booked and the only available ones at Ximending were far from the MRT station. Thanks to expedia, I was able to source out  another hotel, which is a train stop before Ximending, Taipei Main Station. In Taipei traveling is so convenient because almost every place is accessible by the MRT.
After making all the accommodation arrangements, the n…

My weight loss journey: How I lost 30kg in 1.5 years

If you followed me on my Instagram account, you may have noticed that my face has became a lot more smaller. Losing weight has always been in my new year's resolution for every year. However, that resolution would never seemed to be able to be achieved. Thus, I will bring forward to the next year instead! Haha, bet many of you guys would do that too, you are not alone! As you guys know, I am always associated with food. I admit that I am a glutton myself, I can't resist nice food and I tend to overeat most of the time. 
Before you continue reading, the purpose of me writing this post is to serve as a reminder for myself not to return to my original weight. Simultaneously, a few of my friends have also approached me to share with them some tips for losing weight. I promise to keep this post short and sweet as I also dislike reading lengthy posts! 
Before I begin, this blogpost will be filled with old photos of myself before my weight loss transformation.
