Eat – Play – Love – Melbourne Day 3

Hi Folks … here is my daily updates of the Melbourne trip.

Due to the excessive driving and late night updating photos (…excuses), I have snoozed in until midday today … Melbourne STYLE!

Wandering around town and dropped by this awesome cafe tucked inside a South Melbourne laneway – Chez Dre. It is a French inspired cafe, food is top notch and the atmosphere is even better! Would definitely recommend!

Not too many photos today, but I have visited a very unique spot for some sunset photos. Continue reading

Eat – Play – Love – Melbourne Day 2

Evening folks… it’s 1.44am now and I have just came back to the hotel not long ago… (well … not really… I have finished all the editing already… just for all of you!)

I haven’t been to the Great Ocean Road for nearly 9 years now … it is still the same! Still so breath taking!!! I have always loved this coastal drive and couldn’t find anything like this to match in Sydney today.

Just like yesterday… the travel blog bit will come later, but promised you that I will bring you all photos first! Continue reading

Eat – Play – Love … in Melbourne

Hi Folks! Sorry for another lapse in my update! Work and study have been creeping up on me and I have been very busy and sick as well.

However, I have found some time to squeeze in this Melbourne trip during my university break! Wooolala!

This is not my first time in Melbourne, in fact, I have been in Melbourne more than any other city in Australia beside Sydney and Darwin. I have always loved this place, the culture, food, and people … well let’s not go there.

I have got up at 4.30am this morning for a morning 7am flight … and I WOULD NOT do it again! That’s what you get when you book last minute and don’t want to spend big bucks. (Yes… I know you are mumbling … #cheapass)

Anyway… I wanna show you some photos first and I will update with a detailed blog post about the trip and locations later on. It is well passed 12am now and I will be driving 8+hrs tomorrow…

Ciao … until next time! Let’s Eat – Play – Love, INFINITICIOUS Melbourne Time!

Cherry Blossom Festival – Auburn Botanic Gardens, Sydney

spring

Spring is coming … with some beautiful Cherry Blossom.

This is probably the first time that I took Miss X-T1 out for a day shoot, I must say, I am in love with her more and more after today. We went to the Cherry Blossom Festival in Auburn Botanic Gardens at Sydney’s inner west. Weather was a bit overcast and cloudy, but that still attracts thousands of people to go.

Auburn Botanic Gardens have this specific Japanese Gardens with traditional Japanese set out and planted heaps of Cherry Blossom trees. The event itself runs for 2 weekends and today is the last day. These 2 weekends are filled with fun and activities for those that visit the gardens, from martial arts demonstration to Continue reading

Sydney Chinatown Night Market … with the sweet thirtyfive

A random Friday night stroll at the Chinatown night market after work while waiting for dinner. This is my first time out with the XF35 F1.4, although I am quite impressed with it’s low light capability, but it tends to hunt a bit for focus and the “chatter” noise when it does metering annoys the hell out of me. (I was convinced to a point that I have problem with the lens!) But it is seems to be a common problem with these early X-Series lenses and the XF35 has never been updated since the X-Pro1 days. Anyhow… I am still in love!

Okay dokey … Infiniticous photos time!

Hope you like the snaps. That’s all I have for you … until next time.

Share the love on your favorite social media and don’t forget to follow us on INFINITICIOUS!

Just received some goodies today for my Japanese lady … from Korea!

Mr Postman is the Santa for me today! Just received some goodies for my XT-1 this morning from Korea!

Gariz – a boutique camera accessories brand from the land of Asian fashion capital, Korea (arguably). I took notice of this brand since my DSLR days, but have not tried any of their product until now. Gariz, named after it’s Chief Designer’s name Gary. They are running this “Mirrorless Project” to design products for different mirrorless cameras.

DSCF2304Let’s starts with the half case, tailor made for the X-T1. It comes in a very cool box and a protective pouch.  I have chosen
the brown colour case to match the retro feels of Miss XT-1. Genuine leather has been used throughout with a metal base plate that lock onto the camera via the tripod mount. Continue reading

My “non-expert” review of Fujifilm X-T1

Okay folks… as per my promise from the previous blog post, here is my “non-expert” review of the mighty Fujifilm X-T1. When I said “non-expert”, I really mean it. The camera is not the newest out there, and with a simple google search, you can found millions of expert reviews that wrote in any languages you want. I won’t bog down in technical details too much neither, not that they are not important, but I believe if you Continue reading

X-T1 Testing shots – Sydney

Took Miss X-T1 out for some random shooting on the street yesterday, I am still in my learning phase for the functions and buttons. Love the retro feels, she made me remember of the first camera that my dad put on my hand when I was in primary school (a old school Fujica SLR with manual focus indeed). Need to get rid of my old Nikon habits, even as simple as how to take the lens on and off the camera. I have nearly break the mount as it wont turn… then I realized that it turns the opposite way in comparison to my old Nikon DSLR.

Anyway, enjoy the photos… just some happy snaps.
