Lunar/Chinese New Year 2010

Hi! I'm finally blogging about CNY. =.= Almost 1 and 1/2 months have passed by already. Hurhurhur. Anyway, I rented the Nikkon AFS 35mm f1.8 from The Camera Rental Centre for this CNY period at 1/2 price due to some promotions thingy.

All I can say is.... I LOVE THIS LENS!! Probably will love all prime lenses. LOL. Bokeh rocks. Anyway, super many pictures. Not much words. And all 3 days are stuffed into this entry. Hurhurhur.
