is flood with all SOPHIE’S FACE..! Not that I don’t love Sophie’s

All the photos in this MLBR post are all taken with Nikon Df (except
This [My Little Blue Room] concept advertorial photobook as it’s
name says it all, it’s about my new room!! if you follow me on
dayre, you would know recently Revamped my entire room, i
throw almost all the furnitures in my room, changed the color
theme, even D.I.Y some room deco myself. And finally it is
ready to be seen!
The theme I was going for was actually red, blue and white
color theme. But sadly I couldn’t find much red furnitures that
is suitable for my room… So it become 60% blue, 30% white
and 10% red… Which turns out not bad, personally I’m very
much in love with my own cosy little room! Too cosy that for
the past one month, I slept in for the entire month! I didn’t really
go out much maybe only less than 7 times for the past month!!
I have a new title now… OTAKU!! Hurray! lol.
Other than letting my readers to have a mini tour of my LBR
(little blue room), this post is also to show off my new DSLR!!
The Nikon Df!!! It is the MOST stylish professional dslr I’ve EVER
seen. It looks like a vintage collector’s dslr form the 70s!
My Df is the special Edition pack, AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G. The camera
body only weight at only 710 grams!!! He is the Lightest and SMALLEST
in Nikon’s FX format DSLR collection!!!
Don’t be fooled by it’s light weight and size, it’s actually a full
frame digital integrated DSLR!!! The camera features a 16.2-
megapixel FX CMOS sensor and the EXPEED 3 image processing
engine with an ISO range of 100 – 12800!
When I went down to Nikon’s office and they presented to me
the Df… I was instantly blew away. It is so chio!!!
It’s very compact in size as compared to all other professional
DSLRs, not only i find it easy to carry it out, it’s also super stylish,
I don’t mind hanging it on my neck or shoulders all the time,
it could even match almost all my outfits!
Not only its chio, It can take wonderful pictures too!! The team
from nikon showed me a world of wonders of what Df could do.
One of which was it could take really awesome photos in low
lights conditions, I was so impressed.
The Df is actually have a class it’s own. Which is a combination
of the top full frame and mid class of nikon’s dslr family. The
professionals, the advanced amateurs and photo enthusiasts!
This nikon dslr open me brand new door, as a fresh photographer
wannabe, i want to go back to basics of photography, down to
every single button of the camera, I wan to know how do I use
Nikon Df will take me there, their slogan for this camera is actually
“Pure Photography” for those who want to master taking photos
without boundaries and able to take all sorts of photos. I can’t
wait to explore the wonder of pure photography with the magical Df.
I told nikon that I m very interested in learning more on the camera,
I want to attend their classes to learn more on photography and
how to master Nikon Df! Can’t wait to share with you guys more
photos taken by Df!!
If you are a faithful reader. You might noticed that for the past 3
years my room was in yellow and white theme!
In the recent 2 years I realized most of the things I m attracted to
are all in red, blue and white. That’s when I decide on this 3 major
color elements on my new room!
It took me a week, spent over 4k on the revamp, most of the
furnitures are bought from ikea, Star Living, Muji and some of the
decor stuff I actually personally D.I.Y. them.
There’s a embarrassing story that pushed me to execute the project
of revamping my room… NOT GONNA TELL YOU GUYS WHAT
WENT DOWN… Lol, I m already a huge laughing stock for my
friends IRL, not gonna be one across social media. LOLOLOL.
It was actually a good thing because I m someone who always love
to pushback and procrastinate, the incident that happen in my room,
“forced” me to do it. like. right. Now. So I did it, and it actually gave
me a fresh start for year 2015! Ever since I revamp my room, I love
staying in, enjoying every tiny bit of my cosy little room that I build.
The walls are actually painted by myself. I have to surrender to the
fact that I have aged a lot. The yellow room walls were painted by
myself, I rmb it was a piece of cake… But painting 3 years later….
It wasn’t a cake anymore, it’s more like eating a entire cow. LOL.
The completely blue walls were initially painted in a darker shade of
blue which I didn’t fancy much after I painted it myself. But i was too
tired to repaint so I called my close friend Rikeru!!! Who is a design
consultant!! Her family company ZhuangJia handle all sorts of interior
design and construction projects! She send me a painter the very
next day to save my life!!!!!!!!!!!
The Painter was professional and finish the job within a hour… When
I took more than 30 hours to finish painting my entire room leh.
He is so pro la!!
Check out ZhangJia’s latest interior design project promotion! Next
time when I get my own place, I know who to find!! Their portfolios are
so so so chio one!! Check it out their website:
Introducing Bluey! My little fighting fish in a vodka bottle. There’s a
reason why she is inside a Vodka bottle, I bought a total of 4 fighting
fish, 1 male, 3 females, 2 of them jump out of the fish tank and die…!!
Then the last two who left in the tank, they fought till one is dead,
only left with bluey who survived till this date. Lol. I put her into a vodka
bottle so that she wouldn’t jump out of container, it’s almost impossible
to jump out of it.
In order to capture of a perfect shot of t Bluey is almost impossible
as she is constantly moving,
All thanks to Df’s 39-point Autofocus (AF) System! It also Feature a
variety of AF-area modes such as Single point AF, Dynamic-area AF,
3D tracking and Auto-area AF, it ensures quick focusing all the way,
even on fast moving subjects like bluey!
In this MLBR post, I will also take you to closer look of my everyday
hobby, aside from sleeping, eating, watching TV dramas and
camwhoring/blogging… I actually a closet planner nerd. I like to doodle,
draw, craft, collect washi tapes… Okay I think my addiction is still pretty
mild, not crazy or excessive. Cos I could keep all my crafty nerdy stuff
within a box. Lol.
Here’s how my working space looks like…
All thanks to the 50mm special edition lens, the With low aperture
value of F.1.8 I m able to capture pretty bokeh and blurry effect on
