Superband SF 3
Im not a fan of TV anymore, nor a fan of ‘stars-to-be‘ kind of program but since my little princess has this desire to watch a live TV performance in a theatre, I decided to go with her today since we got ourselves the tickets last week by just buying $2 worth of mentos! (And guys do not eat anything related to milk or chocolate yet because it seems like nothing is safe in the world now!)
Went to Changi this morning to send my baby Tamron 70-300mm Zoom lens for servicing. The technical department was telling me that the lens might have to make a trip to Japan and it will probably take 1month for it to come back again, so I was like ‘wtf’. I just hope they fix the lens for me; else i’m like a crippled because I only have 3lens, if that spoils, I will only have 2 lens and these 2 lens are having similar range!
Then I was having some itchy hand, so I surfed around clubsnap and extended my to-buy list for photography again. I’m looking for some lens, Tamron 18-270mm VC LD DI (which will be out around this month and estimated cost ard $800), or Tamron 18-250mm VC LD (at least with image stablising and this will be a very good walk around lens so that I don’t have to switch all the time!) And having a 18-55mm lens is like really noob. So if I manage to get the lens, Im selling this piece of junk away!
Sunny gave a ‘feel‘ on his Canon 24-70L lens yesterday and I was astonished; lost for words. Whichever. Yes I’m very amazed by the ‘as-fast-as-the-eye‘ focus, and the weight, the construction and the results, but Im not going into ‘L’ lens until I can commit more time/passion into photography. Pretty much of shit school work that I can’t catch up enough and simply dont have the moolah to spend this way.
Ok, enough of the side tracks!
So I went to send my lens for service today, had a very wonderful lunch at hotpot culture in Marina Square and send my nokia 6500s for service at Suntec as well. Thank god both items are in warranty period!
After which, we rushed back to SImei to get the van to go to Mediacorp to watch Superband SF3! We were told to reach there by 6.45pm on the ticket and guess what? The timing was a fake! Many people still came in at 7.45pm and I’m rather disappointed having to reach there so early and do nothing. Seeing the fans scream had motivated me to stay awake, and watching the performance are like ‘wow, its live! Im seeing it in theater and many people are watching on the screen only!’ The teams did perform their best but what decide them to continue staying in this competition sequel is not the judges; its the audience. Thus alot of time, if a good band lacks of supporters who are willing to splurge on their handphone bills, it would have been out from the sequel!
Anyway Im totally glad that the band which I felt has performed good today got into the finals which is on 5 Oct and I hope Im going down again because
BEYOND WILL BE PERFORMING!
And I sure hope they’ll be singing cantonese song; probably their HITs since 1980s, hai kuo tian kong or guang hui sui yue!
