Dear Matt and Mar,
[March 29th] Songkran festival is only a couple of weeks away, for this long break your mother wanted to take you two to somewhere special, to make up for not going anywhere during this past New Year. After quite a long discussion we have settled for Disneyland Hong Kong, lol.
Instead of travelling during the Songkran holiday (13th - 15th of April), we’d opted to travel before the festival, so we are flying out on the 8th and back on the 13th, 4 full days in HK should be more than enough. I’ve been trying to plan out each day on what to do, of course one day will be taken up at Disneyland, but for the remaining I have no idea, haa haa haa.
I think your mother is getting sick of me using this trip as an excuse to buy silly junk, haa haa haa, so far a new camera bag, a small waist bag, spare battery, phone case to say just a few, haa haa haa, she was not impressed. Anyway, back to the trip, this will be the first time we travel overseas together, and Mar’s first time out of the country, so I am really looking forward to it.
Decided to go with a new setup in the camera bag, dusted off the old Nex5 and stuck the kit wide angle lens (16mm f2.8, equivalent to 24mm) onto it, never really thought I would make use of the old Nex5 again, lol. So at hand, we now have 28 - 70mm F3.5 - 5.6 (on the ancient A7, lol), 24mm F2.8 (on the even older Nex5) and (soon to be retired) Olympus TG3 (25 - 100mm F2.0-4.9, tough/underwater cam).
At the end of the day, I think I am going to use the Nex5 more than the A7, always have this thing for wide lens, haa haa haa. Going to have a chance to test this setup out this coming Saturday as one of our close friend is entering into Monkhood, so plenty of opportunity for a bunch of shots.
This Friday is your last day of term, and the following Friday is the date we fly out, I think your mother needed this break more than anyone :-)
