Happy New Years to all!
Happy New Years to all!
LOL this thread is really quiet but yeah happy new year everyone, hope 2011 brings a more rewarding year. On a personal note, I may be moving from Australia hopefully for the last time. Had a lot of ups and downs but will be looking forward to a clean bill of opportunities and settlement in 2011.
anyone from canberra here? I'm looking to move soon, was wondering if there are any particular bad parts of town I should stay away from?
Yeah my town! Just kidding. Um every suburb is fine, just depends where you want to be and what you can afford. Can avoid hoppers crossing though.
bahahahaah plus one from the east coast, and ex-canberrian :P
Apart from the strongly-protected proprietary calibration software, almost all of the instruments used for camera repair are too expensive for an individual to buy to set up a camera repair business. Hand tools are still affordable to buy, and the "hand skills" can be transportable to another country/continent.
any good singaporean/malaysian restaurants in canberra?
There are a few but you will have to go and try to see if you like it.
Some might be more styled toward Australians.
Of course compared to back home quite different.
In Civic city,
Sammy's Kitchen is a classic strong hold (about 30years I think)
Mamak Corner Restaurant (about 6 years)
This shop is opened by my old uni friend. a small family business. but more traditional malaysian food.
They are successful and soon (I think march this year) will be opening a 2nd one in Civic.
This time they are bringing in roti canai made fresh to the public
hope that helps.
that's great help, thanks very much. i'll probably drop into one of them this friday or sat when I am in canberra. i need to look for a place to live, looks like its a really nice place to live
thing I love abt canberra is the changing seasons... since i love scenery, the colour change esp in autumn is fantastic.
Some find canberra very quiet and boring.. hopefully you wont. hahahaha.
I love canberra. hopefully one day will return to the area though i visit very often.
Where is Civic City and Sammy's Kitchen? I did a Google search but couldn't find any info.
And darn this sudden spell of wet and gloomy weather. I was hoping to go on a short road trip to Great Ocean Road or Mornington Peninsula or somewhere before I start work next week. I still don't have a DSLR yet (darn it Panasonic, hurry up with the GH2 already!) but at least I could do sightseeing before I rejoin the rat-race.
Currently based in Melbourne / No longer living in Singapore
Civic City is in Canberra, ACT.
Canberra consist of many satellite cities and the main one is Civic.
Sammy's Kitchen is in Civic.
Easily found in googlemaps
I'm wondering if the weather was good and you went to GOR how would you take photos without a DSLR yet as you say? Be patient, the place isn't going anywhere, get that DSLR or GH2 or IVF and watch the forecast. Most sundays are great and stay for sunset not sunrise, good luck!
Speaking of GOR I haven't seen Jemapela's photos of Victoria on CS, got any Jesus?
dont wait toooooooo long
12 apostles now left 8 i think :P
(1) I'm not very confident of my landscape photos.
(2) I haven't been doing frequent serious photography for some years now since I began repairing cameras and lenses.
(3) I prefer uploading photos on my own website and Facebook profile.
I uploaded photos of Sydney Mardi Gras before, in this thread I think. I strongly recommend all Singaporeans, Malaysians, Asians to see this eye-opening mind-liberating sexually-shameless nudity-uncensored public event. Be warned that conservative and religious persons may get recurrent nightmares and frequent bedwetting after watching.
