D.I.Y. Fisheye Lens
Since I bought my E-500, I had been dreaming of a fisheye lens. But until now, I still cannot afford one. What I like about the fisheye lens are the effect of the round distortion and it can cover super ultra wide angle of sight... Read More...

Bye-bye BEIJING 2008...Meet again in LONDON 2012



Bye-bye Beijing 2008… After tonight’s Closing Ceremony of Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, everyone will bid farewell to the host country and city, China and Beijing. And for sure, everyone will go home with a big smile on their face for the magnificent Olympic Games by Beijing for the past 2 weeks.

I had 'seriously' watched Olympic Games since Sydney 2000, and by far, Beijing 2008 is the best Olympic Games. I didn’t get a chance to get to any Olympic Games before, just watched from TV. With a very good broadcasting from the local satellite TV provider, ASTRO, the venue of each game are just so nice and magnificent, especially Bird’s Nest and Water Cube. The weather in Beijing is also in its best condition especially in the past few days, an effort finally payoff to the host country for Green Olympics.

Beijing 2008 is so enjoyable to watch, where so many World Records and Olympic Records broken here. The first few days were a great day for host country China as their weightlifting team had done a great job in this event. In Water Cube, U.S.A. swimming team has been dominant force, especially Michael Phelps, China diving team nearly swept all the gold and Russian Federation took all gold in synchronized swimming. China rules artistic gymnastic. Jamaica conquers Bird’s Nest with Usain Bolt and Co., Argentina continues to dominate football, Ping-pong world is China world, U.S.A. redeems their gold in basketball. China and Ukraine breaks Korea dominance in Archery and much more surprises…

Well, every game is not perfect games. In the very first day, Beijing 2008 is marred by sad incident where a family member of U.S.A. coach staff attacked by a Chinese man and the attacker commit suicide immediately later. Then, bad air level of Beijing in first few days, the age-old conspiracy of China women artistic gymnastic team, Cuban taekwondo competitor kicks referee incident, Swedish wrestler in wrestling result’s protest incident and also a few doping cases. Incident happens cannot be prevented in any big events, but in Beijing 2008, the incident rates are quite low, especially in doping cases. At least, there is no big ‘political’ incident happen during the Games.

To me, China had done a very good job in organizing this Olympic Games. China too has shown to the world their dominance in sports and Olympic Games, with 51 Golds, 21 Silvers and 28 Bronzes and the total of 100 medals (10 medals behind U.S.A.). China best ever medal-hauling in Olympic Games. The best gold medal count by a country ever (I think so…). Well done, China!!!...
