Since the beginning of the year, I've been wanting to get a strap for my Olympus camera ever since I switched system. When I sold my Nikon D7000, I forgot to kept my Matin neoprene strap. So in the past 10 months, I was on a quest to get a suitable strap.
Anyway, I wanted to find a sling strap and shortlisted a few candidates:
1) Artisan & Artist Easy Slider E25R
2) BlackRapid Metro Strap
3) BlackRapit The SHOT
4) DSPTCH Sling Strap
4) Carry Speed M-Sling
Price wise, it differs from one brand to another but none of straps I listed is actually below RM100. Why the heck are camera accessories so expensive? I was contemplating Carry Speed's strap because I found a few stores carrying it at a rather good price but at last I didn't get it cause it was still new in the market and I don't know how durable it is. I trust reviews too much.
So finally, a few weeks ago, I settled for DSPTCH.
DSPTCH is based in San Francisco and in the last 10 months I kept searching but failed to find anyone in Malaysia selling this strap. Finally, not too long ago, I saw Major Drop posted that it carries DSPTCH stuffs. Lo and behold - they also carried quite a number of camera straps from DSPTCH. That was it. I figure it's time and I saved up some money.
Kena poison sudah.
I got myself the grey color although I wanted the black initially but it was out of stock at that time I ordered. Pfft.. Anyhow I thought the grey go really well with the silver OM-D EM-5 body. I really love the strap! Durable and I like the material. It's rather comfortable but I have yet to carry the camera for long hours so we shall see. I also like the fact that it's super convenient when I want to disconnect the strap.
Verdict: I love it! Can't wait to really utilise it to the maximum.
Now, for the paracord wrist strap... :P
Edit: Someone asked me where I got the DSPTCH strap although I mentioned I got it from Major Drop. Heh. Perhaps it wasn't clear, my apologies. Anyway if you would like to get a DSPTCH, go ahead and and get it from Major Drop (here)

Two Fridays ago, I had the privilege to attend the launch of Domino’s Pizza collaboration with Mountain Dew Blue Shock at Domino’s Pizza Subang Perdana outlet with a few other bloggers.
Domino’s Malaysia is collaborating with Permanis Sandilands Sdn Bhd, the manufacturer and distributor of Mountain Dew in Malaysia for a brand new campaign but more details on this later.
In all honesty, I wasn’t very fond of the blue color but anyway I still tried the new variation of Mountain Dew (it’s raspberry citrus flavour) and it’s better than what I expected (skeptic me, lol) – the drink was really refreshing.. I finished my cup and got a second serving ;)
Anyway, I won’t keep you waiting as the highlight of the event was definitely this:
1. Purchase of Mountain Dew Blue Shock 1.5L is required
2. Calculate the number of Mountain Dew Blue Shock 1.5L bottles that can fit the All-New Honda Jazz
3. Fill up the form and complete the slogan
Linda Hassan, Senior Marketing Manager, Domino’s Pizza Malaysia & Singapore
Did I mention it was my first time trying their Chocolate Lava Cake? .. I love it!
Anyway, one last thing! The “Eat, Drink & Win A Car” contest runs from 8th September till 19th October 2014. So hurry up and maybe, just maybe, you are the lucky one to bring home the car! Well, as I always say.. if you never try, you never know!
The full T&C and more information about the contest can be found on www.dominos.com.my J

Yesterday HJ and I were talking about going to a cafe to have lunch. While I was scrolling through insta, I saw a post on Fahrenheit 600 and looked up for it to find out that it's at Publika. Actually, to be accurate it's Solaris Dutamas (just outside Publika, not inside the mall, but ya).
There are more than ten dozens of cafes around Klang Valley and we're spoilt for choice so it was kinda difficult to make a decision. But the post on insta attracted my attention because... the instagrammer mentioned that he got a set lunch priced at RM18.90. And so.. I suggested this place and then.. we came here this afternoon.
Fahrenheit 600 is actually a restaurant more than a cafe because of it's extensive menu. Too many cafes here only serve limited types of drinks and desserts like cakes. The favourites at Fahrenheit 600 are the pizzas. They also have sandwiches and pasta.
There are limited choices for mains if you want to have the lunch's special. Initially I wanted to order the beef lasagna but they ran out of it. So anyway, we got a pepperoni pizza and a carbonara. As for the drinks, quite a number of choices too. Dessert is awesome, you can choose any dessert from the dessert counter.
Super cheesy, with the right amount of goodness. A good pizza. By the way, look at the picture below to see how cheesy it was lol.
No jelak! One tick for good carbonara. I would say that is comes with generous amount of hams and mushrooms. Delightful. Always a fan of a good plate of carbonara.
Tiramisu - simple tiramisu, easy to eat. Not too sweet also.
Chocolate mousse - just one word: rich!
Besides, time taken to serve drinks and food was really quick, didn't have to wait long. Service was ok. Nothing to complain about.
So overall, I like this place! Worthy to come especially on weekdays for the lunch specials. Even without the lunch specials, this is the place to be simply because of the extensive menu.

Jonathan Rinzler making a funny face.
Last Wednesday, I had the chance to attend one session of talk at #KLConverge. First time in my four years at uni that we had a field trip and transport was provided! KL Converge is a three-day event that features various talks by reputable speakers and admission was free! Shame that it seems that the marketing or publicity was rather bad..
Oh ya, so I managed to attend a talk by Jonathan Rinzler, author of The Making of Star Wars and the Complete Making of Indiana Jones, NY Times and London Times Bestsellers, and he has written Emmy award-winning animated TV series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. He gave a talk about writing for digital age. To be honest, it was not the best talk I've ever been but it was a privilege to meet these big shots from Hollywood and we could even go close up and ask them questions after the session was over. Fuh.
And then I rushed back to attend another talk.. this time by Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir!
I hate it that the events clashed. So I made my choice anyway. So anyhow, I managed to meet MM too and it was yet another privilege to see someone who is who reputable and respected at a close range.
More of these please!
