hi pentaxians!

i'll be flying off to study @ the university of chicago next wednesday.

thank you all for the good times both online and offline at the monthly photo outings. i really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere, with the regular old birds always willing to offer nuggets of wisdom and experience to the new members. of course there's the poison that one has to resist everytime.. i eventually succumbed, ditching my K100D + kit for bigger, better gear like the K20D & DA* :sweat: i'll definitely miss the warmth of our local pentax community..

i'll be back as often as my time and budget permits, but i also want to take the opportunities of school breaks to travel as much as i can. not sure how my photographic interests will change in the new environment overseas, maybe more landscapes, more streets, less macro? we'll see..

anyway my msn add is darrenosaurus_rex AT hotmail.com, and you can email me at darrenleow AT uchicago.edu.

for those who are thinking of getting stuff shipped back to singapore (ebay, B&H, adorama, amazon, etc), feel free to email/PM me for my address. i'll try my best to ship the items back asap, but u know how busy school terms can be!

farewell, stay safe, and take more photos so i can stave off homesickness. :bsmilie:

PS special thanks to all who took time out to meet for dinner today, esp those who journeyed to the west! also many thanks lawrence for the confirm useful parting gift. :thumbsup:

Good Luck with your studies.

Keep Warm. Chicago is a cold cold place. They don't call it the Windy City for nothing :D

Hey Darren, you'd sure have a lot fun there. But I'm sure you'd miss the food here, and the friends too ;)

Bring a camera, and go travel.
