    Heheh...I will need to make A LOT of money in the stock market to even warrant buying that. Some of my current profits are already going towards getting a long telephoto, and yet, I still have to top up some.

    Go Zoo shoot peektures, see animals, see girls, enjoy nature. U go there see equipment?

    I think u'll die in orgasmic pleasure if u go to African Safari and see some of those awesome stuff the Nat' Geo chaps use.

    I like the part about seeing girls. I think more time was spent doing this at Disneyland some years ago, rather than taking the rides. Those things are not for me and tend to land me up really nauseus and green in the face.

    We have the rides here as well, but they are probably nowhere near as nice as those in Disney. Not to mention that there's this strange aura in Disneyland that makes you relax and feel a little happier.

    It feels like a very safe place as well after being through places with the likes of New York and even San Francisco. It's very clean, you'll feel like a king/ queen, but unfortunately you'll land up spending as much as one. During the last trip there I spent heaps on those collectible badges and pins. A lot of people wear these pins on a lanyard around their neck, and a lot of people bump into each other, make small chat and then exchange badges.

    Then not to forget the collectible cell-prints. Even till today, I can't say if it was an impulse buy. However, I liked it then and I still like it now.

    When I go Zoo, I always peek at other people's gear, to see if their lens is longer than mine, just like I peek at the chap next to me at the urinal to compare size....
    I love big car, big house, big lenses, but small apertures.

    Really, where is it? Is it a large theme park with many things? I was told there is none here in SG.

    Good that you're brave enough to mention this. People are inclined to think that we're purely equipment freaks when we go woo and wah over other people's gear. Truth be told, if you're out taking photos and someone else waltzes up next to you with a big gun, MOST people will turn their heads to look, not just photographers.

    Plenty of other things turn our heads...both women and men are attracted by certain traits of the other side. Sometimes the same side, but I shall not go into that.

    There should be one in Sentosa. Close to home, you'd probably also want to try some of them in Malaysia. I'm not a fan of theme parks though. I like it quiet. In terms of photography, I'd much prefer to be at the zoo or in Sungei Buloh than trying to take photos in the city. People always give me the stares and make me sweat. As if I weren't already sweating enough in this kind of weather.

    I'm not all into theme parks and stuff like dat when I'm overseas (much to the chargin' of my travel mate). Prolly I'll give it a go next time round. See how 'magical' is this 'magical' thing.

    Well, it affects people differently. I didn't have a swell time either when I was there, since all this rides and noise + people wasn't my thing. However, I at least felt happy. And I felt remarkably safe. If I were in New York, I'd be clinging to my wallet. And if I don't cling to my head, I'm pretty sure it'll be gone as well.
