Serendipity: How I Got the Olympus Pen I Wanted But Don't Need


I must have been a real saint in my past life judging by all the good karma that comes my way, or at least the serendipity I’m blessed with in the way of being gifted the objects I desire. Such was the case with Jumbo (my SUV) and both my new iPhone 6s (one for London and one for Kuala Lumpur), and so it is with the camera I was lusting over - the Olympus Pen E-PL7.

What's In My Camera Bag | My Camera Lenses & Guide to Prime Lenses


Today's post follows the 'Useful & Beautiful' theme of Posh, Broke, & Bored in which I share tips and hacks that could well be useful for your photography, blogging, or to just 'win at life'. So yes, that's useful, but how is it beautiful? Well! I'll illustrate my knowledge with ocular crack/eye candy from the five different countries I've been to this year - Latvia, UK, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Thailand. For this blog post about my camera lenses I've put together an eclectic gallery of photos - travel, street photography, portraits, food, wildlife etc. - taken by both Henry and I. A few of these you may recognise from recent blog posts but most of them are f-f-fresh off the boat, so even if you're not a budding blogger looking to level up your photography and learn more about camera lenses, you can just enjoy this post as 'Postcards from Kuala Lumpur'.

Easy Style hack - How to turn any handbag into a camera bag

Posh Broke Bored - Make your own stylish camera bag

How does a stylish woman reconcile her love for fashionable handbags with her need to carry heavy camera equipment? Ah, that enduring blogger conundrum (don't say 'Emasculate your boyfriend into being your full-time camera monkey'). Shock, surprise, but yes, you can carry a limited edition Lady Dior handbag on a day out with your girlfriends with a camera, two lenses, a stack of business cards, two polarising filters, AND your other everyday bits and bobs! The solution is so painfully obvious, that I can't believe it's taken me so many months of letting my Canon 600D get knocked about in my purse and my lenses wrapped in scarves to protect them from getting scratched.

Happy Birthday, Nuffnang UK!

I've been waiting a long time for Nuffnang to spread their wings to the UK.

I stopped writing my first blog when I moved to London to study at St. Martins so that I could focus my (considerably scattered) attention and time on, well, living my life instead of writing about it. This was in 2006. Back then the only real superstar bloggers in South East Asia were Xiaxue and Kenny Sia (who put my blog on the radar just by mentioning me in passing). Nobody foresaw that in the not-so-distant future, pretty twenty-something year old college girls would make five figures just by attending events and writing about face creams from the comfort of their home. Ming and Tim, those visionaries, dreamt it and made it happen. But of course I had to pick that time to move away from Malaysia to England and stop blogging for five years.

As sweet as it is that my best friend is a Nuffnang talent and that I've met some really lovely people at the Nuffnang birthday parties as well as seen old friends really blossom through blogging, I've felt just a little left out that I wasn't part of this little club. I couldn't, I can't be! I don't live in Malaysia anymore, I spend maybe three months a year in K.L.? I pay taxes in England for fish sake. So, when Nuffnang expanded to the far West a year ago and invited me to join their happy UK family, it was a no-brainer. I answered with a resounding yes.

And now, Nuffnang UK is one...! Happy Birthday, Nuffnang UK, and here's to many more happy returns to come.
