It’s been a while

So… I’ve been off the blog for quite a while now. Travel, work and other stuff have kept me away along with a general sense of lethargy related to blogging.

However, I’m trying to get rid of it, re-prioritize my activities and try and do stuff which I enjoy.

Anyway, a belated happy new year. I’ve been on two trips the past 3 month, and two more in the next 4 months. But none of them “travel trips” which is what I want to do. Swetha (who btw, got a Canon Rebel XSi, the 450D) mentioned that I have not mentioned my cam. Well mid-last year, I got a DSLR, a Canon 40D. It is an awesome cam, amazing features and amazing picture quality.
(Du..uh.. Of course it is, that’s why I purchased it ;))

Work wise, it’s been boring and frustrating past couple of months. Project mostly at a standstill and progress is sluggish if any. Almost like déjà vu.

My thoughts for 2009:
I think this will be a good year for me. I have positive feelings and expectations from the year. I expect a lot of changes in my life this year, mostly good ones. Hopefully ;)

I’m also participating in the development for a game that I’ve been playing for quite a while (Battlemaster), which is fun..

Well I had move to say but then I forgot.. Sigh..

Footnote: It took me about 1+ week to write this. As I said, had more to say but I forgot. Shit


I felt like spending some money for diwali. Don’t ask me why I felt that urge but then it was my dad’s b’day as well and I thought of getting him a gift. So I got him one of these..

Camera Front

Yeah I got him a Sony Cybershot H5. It’s a SLR like point and shoot camera with a 7.2 MP sensor and 12X optical zoom. The images are very crisp and clear with a very bright flash to use in dark settings.

Another great feature is the huge LCD display (which though does drain quite a bit of battery :( ). It has support for both automatic and extensive manual controls and optical image stabilization which tries to remove blur and haziness from an unsteady shot.

Camera Back

All in all, a great looking camera with loads of great features and not too heavy either. My dad was ecstatic and has been fiddling with it every morning, waking up early to learn it’s various features :D
