Recently the Pokemon Go Plus accessory became available in the UK. As it is highly in demand, it is expected that the units which are available have a higher price tag than its RRP of £35.00. But as I saw that there were 10 available for immediate despatch through Amazon Prime at £63.99, I felt it worth the extra cost just to try it out. Continue reading Pokemon Go Plus

Quite a few of my wife’s High School friends traveled to England recently, and during their first stop-over they stayed with us for a few days. My wife took the opportunity to demonstrate her culinary skills to her friends – and as can be expected from her, she will likely cook up a big feast. Continue reading Buffet dinner

Recently my wife’s friend came to visit us from London as many of their school friends had come to England. One of the things she brought to our house was agar jelly which she had made. But what was special was that it was specially decorated on the inside, using a food needle and syringe to create the lovely flowers. Apparently quite a few hours work went into making it.

I have been wondering what a strawberry looked like close-up. Hence I decided to take one from my fridge to photograph. The images below were stacked from 11 images to get the entire strawberry in focus. Continue reading Strawberry – closeup

It has been over 2 months since Pokemon Go came out here in England. There have been some updates to the interface, and one of the most useful is that of a Pokemon Buddy, where you elect one Pokemon as your buddy to walk about with you. And depending on the buddy, walking a certain amount of distance will result in your buddy finding a Pokemon-specific candy. This can prove to be helpful particularly for the rarer Pokemon, to get more candy to power them up or even evolve them. Continue reading Pokemon Go buddy

While in France, we had spent a lot of time in the car and during that time we had seen some parts of France which were lovely. Alot of the time, it was not possible to stop on the side of the road to take photos, hence there were times when I had to take photos while the car was on the move – while my wife was driving.

While in France for our summer holiday, I had taken some photos of the art work at the Bouchard Aine et Fils winery in both visible light and infrared (680nm). Hence I thought it would be worth comparing how the different spectrum of light may bring up different details of the art work. Continue reading Art – visible light vs infrared

Recently, I have been talking with my wife about further improvements to my diet to reduce body fat even further. We have determined that my daily calorie requirement is roughly 2000 Calories. If I was aiming for a 0.5 kg weight loss a week to improve my BMI from 24 to 22, I would only be allowed 1780 Calories a day. In order to cut down on unnecessary calories in my diet, we decided to cut down as much as possible on carbohydrates and refined sugars, and increase the protein intake – this together with regular exercise, should make that difference.

It has been a very long time since I’ve taken any floral photographs. Hence when our friend bought a bunch of flowers for my wife, I’ve been wanting to take photographs of it. I finally managed to find some time to do this. So here are the images. Continue reading Lisianthus grandiflorum
