Had an unofficial outing on the 2nd day of the year, quite a few guys showed up. Now we are planning for an official one :D

This month we plan to have the outing/gathering at Fort Canning:

Fort Canning Park


Fort Canning Hill was once known as "Forbidden Hill". This is because Malays in the 19th century believed that it was the seat of royalty for rulers of Temasek (or "Sea Town", an old name for Singapore) in the 1300s. Later, Singapore's colonial leaders made their residences there, and the hill became a military base during the Second World War. Today, ancient relics dating back to the 14th century have been unearthed and the Fort Gate, remnant of the fortress built in the 1860s, is a reminder of Singapore's colonial past.

I've been there once, about 8 years ago. I'm sure there have been a lot change ever since. It's a good place for nature/lanscape/macro photography, pretty good for people photos too.

CNY is just around the corner. Hope you guys can show up for the gathering, so we'd have some fun together :)



Date: 16th Jan 2010 (Saturday)
Time: 8:30am onwards
Venue: Fort Canning Park (meeting point to be confirmed)


I can't join on 23th, and Thaipusam 2010 falls on 30th, let's fix on 16th Jan for this month's outing. :)

Thanks, Guys ... good to know that you still recognized me after I MIA for so long. ;)

I guess that's what you get when you've got such a closely knitted group in Pentax! :thumbsup:

But hey, I can only make it for the 16th, so if it's 30th, I may have to miss out again. :sweat:

;) ... let me start poisoning you with FA 77mm!
Many have tried, but none have succeeded. :sticktong

Need something more exotic. A CZ or Voigt :think:
Nah, I'm fine with a Vivitar 28/2.8 close focus, Mamiya 55/1.4 or Industar 50/3.5. I'm a cheapo. :bsmilie:
