Pokemon Go Generation 2

When I had completed the Pokedex with all the Pokemon that were available in England, I thought that it would be the end of Pokemon Go for me. But the day when my post came out, Niantic released the 80 Generation 2 Pokemon. And with these some new items as well, which made the game all interesting again.

Valentine’s Day Meal

As this Valentine’s day fell on a Tuesday (my normal day to cook) and is during school half-term, I was able to put in some extra time and effort to prepare the meal, just to make it extra special for my wife. I decided that I would prepare 5 dishes for the meal. Continue reading Valentine’s Day Meal

Salted Egg Yolk Cookies (with a twist)

I have always been fond of cookies since a very young age. I often reminisce about the cookie that my grandmother’s friend had made and given to her, which she had saved just for me; as you can tell, it was an experience that I will never forget. It was the nicest, loveliest cookie I had ever tasted – and is the yard stick by which other cookies are measured against. None have ever quite lived up to that standard or taste, although the French Galettes came close. But recently one of wife’s colleagues baked and gave us some cookies for Chinese New Year which brought back memories of that cookie I had eaten so many years ago. I knew we had to get that recipe.

Peak Design Everyday Sling Bag

In the many years I have been into photography, I have been looking for the perfect or ideal camera bag – in fact over time, I have bought at least 8-10 such bags, with some working better than others. But each have failed to hit the mark, as I still keep looking for that ultimate bag or two. As can be expected, people may change camera system over time, which means that their needs from a bag also changes over time. Hence a bag which meets the mark initially, may not necessarily do so with time and change. I recently decided to invest in the Peak Design Everyday Sling, to see if it would become my ultimate camera (and other stuff) go-to bag.  Continue reading Peak Design Everyday Sling Bag

Peak Design Capture Lens Kit (Sony E-mount)

I have been a fan of the products from Peak Design, a company based in San Francisco, who come up with innovative products to make the photographers life a whole lot better. I have had their Capture clip and Cuff (wrist strap) for holding my camera for quite a few years now. Hence when I revisited their website to look at their range of bags and noticed that they had a great solution to aid the changing of camera lenses, I knew I had to buy one to try out. Hence I bought the Sony E-mount version, although I have emailed their company to suggest they make the Micro 4/3rds version as well. Continue reading Peak Design Capture Lens Kit (Sony E-mount)
