The story of “Shopping, shoots & inspirations”

[Disclaimer: This is a very long post. Enjoy at your own leisure]

Assalamualaikum all. It’s been another hectic week for myself.

* It’s a succession of meetings, meetings and meetings.
* The bank is a another place I’m going on such a regular basis (no..I didn’t have much money, but everyday there’s something regarding the bank that make me goes there..sometimes 2 times a day)

* My hectic schedule for saturday is:
8.45 be at the studio, check emails, off to Cheras, KL to pickup new lighting equipments. Several strobes, big ass softbox, boom arm with wheels (this is my favorite!), new color gels, beauty dish and honeycombs.
10.20 off to Ikea for furniture hunting for the studio. New Poang chairs (my dream come true!), new sofa, several shelves and new curtains. Looks like we’ll be painting the studio next! We lunch at Ikea (the meatballs with brown sauce is good enough..as always)

5 Trolley loads of furnitures…we end up using the delivery service. RM65 for all..hehehe
