Enjoying Nature with Macro Shots

pink flowers

Last weekend we brought the kids out to Labrador park.  It has been a few years since we last been to the park and I felt that it was a great place for Monkey boy to try out his new skateboard. I had  the chance to take some photos of the flora at the park while the kids were enjoying themselves.

I saw a really lovely white flower and couldn’t resist to take a shot  using the Macro function of my DSLR. I’ve yet to figure out how to use the manual functions as yet so I’m still snapping on the presets on the dial.


Ixora is one of the common plants that we have in Singapore and there were plenty at this park.

White Spider lily

Another common flower in our tropics the Spider Lily

I’m really hoping to be able to get a Macro 100 lens this Christmas. I think that there would be a real difference between using a Macro lens and the Macro functions on the camera.

Do you love snapping Macro shots too?

Weekend Breakfast with Tiger Girl

Tiger girl and me

Last Saturday the grandparents took the boys for their weekly swimming lesson. Tiger girl   and I had the chance to have a leisurely breakfast at a cafe that was introduced to us a Changi Village.


The big breakfast  which we ordered. It wasn’t as yummy as expected at the bacon and baked beans were overdone.


The coffee the R ordered.  Tiger girl wanted to drink it when she saw the lovely bear imprint on the top.   She had iced lemon tea instead.

What have you been having for breakfast?
