Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 25mm f1.4 ASPH on OMD-EM5  
Picture taken with my first prime lens

I had the OMD-EM5 for over a month and I decided it is time to get serious about photography.
Unlike my previous set up of Canon 500 with Kit Lens and a cheap EF 50mm F1.8, I decided to 'invest' in this 'hobby'.

Financial planning for Children Education



 

Financial cost of upbringing a child could quite daunting for a new parent.
It is no surprise that I had thought about the kids education from the first day that they were born. Eduction will probably form a large part of our finances. This is especially true when they reach university age.

Marine Parade Public Library Review


Marine Parade Public Library

Marine Parade Public Library - June School holiday activity

"Ipad is boring, Ipad makes your eyes go blind"

These were the exact words from me, the big brother. In addition to this, I had bug  asked Daddy to bring me to the library to borrow a book on insects. Given that we are Generation D (Digital). touching a book is a rare event.  This has prompted Daddy to add the Library to our Things to do during June school holidays. Since we lived near Marine Parade Public Library , it would be our first library destination as a family for the holidays.
