Few weeks before chancing upon the canvas offer, my sister told me about this great offer from Photobook Malaysia. You pay only RM150 instead of RM544 for a 11” x 11” Large Square Imagewrap Hardcover, 80 pages. What a great deal ya? That was back in August. Since I’ve just came back from South Korea, I thought I’ll print the photos on a photobook. This was my first experience developing my digital photos into photobook.
During the last weekend of November, I finally grab my chance to visit the fame paddy fields in Sekinchan which I heard so much about. It certainly didn’t disappoint and I would recommend this place to anyone looking to relax or for photography purpose. The weather forecast said it was going to rain in mid morning but we were presented with a stubborn sun until late evening where it began to shower. It was so warm that I came back with tanned arms as souvenir from my good times at Sekinchan.
After having our brunch at a coffee shop in Sekinchan, we proceed to the paddy field.
Many years back I was a user of Origins. Then I switched to other brands. Right now I’m switching back to Origins to see how my skin will fair this time. Coincidentally it’s Christmas season and Origins has several holiday sets on offer. What else? I bought them as my starter packs.
Here are a little something more from my South Korea 2014 travel. Some tips I learned and wanna share here.
1. Where to view cherry blossom during spring in South Korea?
I visited Seoul, Busan, Jinhae, Jeonju and Jeju island during spring for cherry blossom and I can tell you that it’s all about luck. We managed to catch the cherry blossom flowers at its peak in Busan. Whereas in Jinhae, Jeonju and Jeju island they were already past their best. We had the least luck in Seoul.
Where: Dalmaji Road
How we went: At Haeundae subway station, we took a cab to Dalmaji Road. We told the cab driver to bring us to Haewoljeong 해월정 which is the famous pavilion at Dalmaji Road. Cab fee 3,600 won.
Few weeks back I chanced upon this cyber sale by Photobook Malaysia. Without hesitation I bought 4 units of 8″ x 8″ canvas prints which is going for only RM9.99 each. Usual price is RM105.00. That’s crazily cheap right? For all the 4 units I select my favorite pictures of Chester to be printed and I made them into black and white in Photoshop. To be honest, I didn’t have any printed picture of Chester in my home prior to this.
Those who followed me in Instagram would have seen this picture. This picture is my absolute fav!
