Mercedes-AMG C250

I am by nature not very inclined to photograph cars. But when push comes to shove, I'll have to make the best out of the very limited equipment that I have if there's a job at hand. For this job, we just had a few hours to borrow the car from Mercedes, test drive and photograph it. Unless you're, don't hope to borrow their flagship RM1 million AMG GT S supercar.

All these images are unprocessed, straight out of camera (SOOC) JPEGs from the Nikon D3. 

Need to make the colours from your image 'pop'? Just go to Picture Control on your Nikon camera and set it to Vivid. Do note this effect is not for everyone.

Porky Goodness @ Spitalfields, Atria Damansara Jaya

Spitalfields is an up-and-coming English pub concept restaurant and bar which opened about 2 months ago. It's located to the left of the main entrance of the Atria shopping gallery in Damansara Jaya. You won't miss it.

This pub can be packed, so if you want to dine with your friends, reservations are highly encouraged.

OK.. so forgetful me forgot to bring out the tripod, so there was no friggin' way I was gonna get decent, sharp handheld shots unless I boosted the ISO to 5000 or 6400.

These are the 2 successful owners of Spitalfields

The first appetizer was baked potatoes topped with fried pork liver and bacon. I'm personally not a big fan of the liver but the rest of the ingredients go well with each other. According to the manager, all the sauces are made in-house for that extra 'oomph'.

Mashed pork brains (yes you heard that right) served with toasted bread. If you don't think about the fact that you're eating brains, it tastes alright, in my opinion.

 Deep fried pork ears, another unique dish. Best eaten hot, as the cartilage is very chewy and tasty.

Marinated pork tail. Not a lot of meat attached but it's quite flavourful.

I've uploaded this picture just to prove how far camera technologies on our cellphone has come. One is taken with my work camera (the Canon 5D mark III), while the other is by my newly acquired Samsung Galaxy Note 5. Can you tell the difference?

Slow roasted pork. It's basically a huge slab of siew yoke cooked to perfection.

The pork ribs were also very flavourful. Most importantly the meat was juicy, tender, and not dry.

I'd highly recommend a visit to Spitalfields if you're a pork lover and enjoys your meals with beer or wine. I will be back for their siew yoke at least ! =)

BMW 520d

Well not all of the photos that I take get published, so I might as well post some on my blog. After we collected the car from BMW HQ in Cyberjaya we went to an office complex nearby. Hit and run style..

Anyway the nice driver in the car is my former colleague, Gem. You may view her blog post here:
