So, I turned 29 on 18th Feb 2012. Thought of presenting
myself with the toys I was longing for quite a while.
  • Nikon D3100 (body only).
  • Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G.
  • Bajaj Oven Toaster Griller (3 in 1) 28 ltrs.

Owned Canon PowerShot SX210 IS for about two years.
That camera produces horrible outputs in low light.
No wide apertures. Horrible noise at ISO 200.
I was discouraged. Discouraged to the level that I had
totally abandoned...

Went for dinner at a local market today. It is a very busy market
especially on a Sunday night. While having dinner I watched 5 men
lettings off bunches of balloons in the air.
At first I thought they were some fun loving people who were making
pure merry. Went closer, only to find out that those muscular men

for the rest of the non-so-important jobs and can't
get them completed too, since at the back of my mind is a
heavy load of the major task which I am yet to start!...
