His and hers...

21 November 2009.
A date that was eagerly awaited.
The Saturday that we impatiently looked forward to.

Ever since we got word of it, there was not a single day that we did not talk about it. We were like kids waiting to open our presents on Christmas day. We could not wait for each day to end. We could not wait for each day to start.


Upon reaching KNP...

Self : Ohhh (disappointed)...he's not here yet...did you call him...
Hubby : No, I just SMS him...


We were waiting for our good buddy Mr Alphonsus Loinsang.
The bearer of the good news.
The person responsible for delivering the 'package'.


...Alphonsus Loinsang a.k.a the Beastmaster...



Saturday, 21 November 2009, is the day Aphon personally delivered to hubby his new toy...
...his new toy to play with during our photography excursion...
...his new 'assault weapon'...

...Canon EOS 7D...

Saturday, 21 November 2009, is also the day I received my new toy...
...my new 'assault weapon'...
...the hands-me-down from hubby...


...Canon EOS 40D...



...two good buddies...two different gadgets...


...the Eyebrowed Jungle Flycatcher captured with 40D...



I have yet to hear any complaints from hubby on his new acquisition. Despite the negative and unfriendly reviews that were thrown at the EOS 7D, hubby was very optimistic towards it. I was not surprised at all at his decision knowing full well that he is one who loves to go against the flow of things. Against all odds, I believed he wanted to prove his unfaltering confidence in the brand. So far, it has not failed him yet.

I could not say the same about me tho. Still complaining. Still grumbling. "I need to get a lense like yours...mine is slowing me down"...repeated over and over again to which hubby would only nodded his agreement.


Was I in for a surprise on our way home 2 nights ago...

Hubby : I think you should get 7D also...trade in the 40D...
Self : (not blinking...not answering)...
Hubby : What say you...
Self : (swallowing saliva)...10K!!!!!...awww...that hurts...


I'm scratching a non-existing itch on my head as we talked. I started to stare unblinkingly at the dark long road to home. Temptation aside, I have to be realistic tho. But not before wishing that money would drop from the sky at that very instant. I would have to make do with what my financial limit permits me. Let me just sleep on it this year. Next year might be a different matter altogether.


So, in the mean time...



this his and hers...
has pleased him and her...
they are content with their thingamajiggys...

this his and hers...
has eluded the allure of the 'dark side'...

coz this his and hers...
has been delighting him and her...
...always...

Adui betul tu...itu mesti yg pro and very high end tu geng...bukan murah bah photography ni...kalo sekadar kami laki bini yg bekerja ni berkakai juga mau membeli biarpun sekadar menambah accessoriesnya...yang teruk dua2 lagi kami memphotography kan...jd double trouble...tapi since minat perlahan2 lah menambah...;)
