My New Toy – Instax Mini 8 by Fujifilm

Introducing my new toy – Instax Mini 8 by Fujifilm.

Been wanting to own one instant camera. Despite having my dear DSLR.

Those days, instant cameras are quite expensive. Now, they have wide range of instant cameras with fancy fancy designs at a lower price.

Alex knew I wanted it so much. Therefore he bought one for me. Yippie! Ok la..I know I hardly say ‘rou ma’ stuffs to Alex here. But thank you Darling… hehe….


Instax Mini 8 is current latest model in Malaysia. It comes in 5 different colors. What is your favorite pick? I love the pastel colors of Instax Mini 8.

The anticipation to unbox the camera! Yes…pink is my favorite pick.

All the above are included in the box. 2 xAA batteries, a pink strap, instruction manual and the camera.

As quoted; Cute and compact body design
—instant photos, instant fun!

This is where you place the 2xAA batteries.

Product Features:

  • Brightness adjustment dial
  • Instax mini 8 automatically determines the best brightness for taking a picture by lighting the corresponding lamp. Turn the brightness adjustment dial to the position (mark) of the lit lamp
  • Able to take a high-key photo easily
  • Setting the brightness adjustment dial to the high-key mode mark allows you to take pictures with a softer impression

In this case; the auto detected brightness is “Indoors, Night F12.7” because the lit lamp in positioned at the indoor symbol. Therefore I’ll need to turn the brightness adjustment dial to the position (mark) of the lit lamp. But if you would like to have a brighter outcome, tune it to the “Hi-Key” mode (far end). However avoid using “Hi-Key” when you shoot outdoor under a bright and sunny sky. Else your photo will turn out too white.

Uses Fujifilm Instant Color Film “instax mini”. I must say that the film price is quite pricey. We got them for an offer price. RM20/box. Each film box contain 10 pieces of credit card size film.

Ta daahh…my 1st shot of instant photo using Hello Kitty as model. HAHA!

You are not required to shake or wave the film once its released from the camera. It takes about 2 minutes for the image to be fully appear.

*Alamak* How come the image senget wan? My eyes are senget meh?

Note : Keep a distance from the subject of at least 0.6m. The flash has an effective range of between 0.6m to 2.7m.

Now I want to shop “baju” for my camera edi… 🙂

Paul Frank Sleeve Case

Finally I got myself a sleeve case. Oppss…not for myself. Its for Whitey*.

I’m feeling much happier than her. At least a protection to her lor…I’m now less worried when carrying it. She has been naked for more than a month ler..(censored).

When I got this Paul Frank Sleeve Case, I was going gaga over it. And even bragged about it. Took a photo and MMS it to Alex. Then I called Alex right after I press the ‘send’.

Mel : Did you receive the MMS which I’ve just sent to you?

Alex : No ler…what is it about?

Mel : =_=   (so slow want). Never mind lar… just see it after you received it.

………………THE NEXT MORNING……………………

Alex : Saw your MMS liao ler….so cute…I knew it!! Knew you would prefer something like that de lor….. Look at the mouth…just like you lahh….

Mel : (duhh….jahat sungguh suami aku ni) @_@

nicely packed in the clear box

masih ada bau kedai ^^

even the zip is nice too….

the inner material is soft & smooth…worth the price I paid!

This is a sleeve case. However Whitey claimed as her sleeping bag…See! Showing me that she’s sleeping summore…..

By the way…my mouth do look like that meh? May be one of these day I shall try to pose like that and see whether it matches or not. =_=

The Proud Owner of “Ms. Whitey”

Last Friday, Ms. Whitey has finally arrived Malaysia, the day I’ve been longing for. It has been such a long wait ever since it was launched in US. Was keeping track on the updates on almost each day.

It was a happening day on every APPLE outlet! About the queues, the crowds, the number of units sold. I guess, I don’t need to explain much on the specs, you can easily refer it from Apple- iPad.

No doubt; I purposely made my way from Seremban to KL just for this. Felt its worth it though. However without the help from my friends, I wouldn’t be getting it much easier. Thank you! (not going to disclose their names here).

Ms. Whitey, the iPad2

Love the improved features Apple made on iPad2. Now that I can do Facetime with my buddies!!

Since, “Angry Bird” is such a hit now, therefore I’ve downloaded it too! Quite fun too.Yeah… I don’t need to play tweety bird anymore…hahaha…

**Sorry Ms. Whitey, I yet to get any suitable clothes for you. Will try to get a nice one soon ya..**

Choose Only 1

iPhone4 vs iPad2. The Battling between 2 Apples.


Hubby says; “Choose only 1”.

I have neither one. Which should I choose ler?? Everyone is Hoo Haa-ing about iPad2 ever since the launched. But yet to arrive Malaysia.

Okay… I do admit that I got fascinated by the features.

However both are equally GREAT! How la..Mana satu nie?? *scratching my head*
