Meeting Ekin Cheng and Aaron Kwok

The highlight of 30th November, my birthday is meeting popular Hong Kong actors Ekin Cheng and Aaron Kwok.

Well, almost. They made a life appearance to promote their new Chinese action fantasy film called "Storm Warriors (Fung wan II)". The story is about Wind and Cloud, two warriors find themselves up against a ruthless Japanese warlord intent on invading China. The film opens in Singapore on 10th December 2009.

Earlier during the day my wonderful friends have invited me to lunch and dinner. The night before, at midnight we went to Dragonfly at St James Powerstation where live music was played. It is a Mandarin dance club with amazing vocal by the singers.

Canon 5DMk2

Finally the wait is over. I have bought myself a dream camera; a present for my birthday this month :-)

It's the 5DMk2, battery grip and the 70-200mm IS USM f2.8 tele zoom lens toted by most Canon professionals.

Canon 5DMk2 is considered the best digital SLR camera ever made by Canon with its impressive 21 megapixel 'full frame' CMOS sensor. As for the lens, it is featured in many of Canon's glossy brochures, a tough pro lens, big and heavy and very fast and sharp.

When I received the boxes, I was ecstatic. I certainly is looking forward to having a new best friend that I will treasure.

1/2010 Update - I have renamed the words referencing the camera to 5DMk2 and not it's official name as it is inviting a lot of hits from people who google for this camera.
