Brought Back From The CNY

I just transferred my data from the camera to my hard disk drive and apparently I had quite a lot of photos taken, so I'm glad to say that I'll be able to post a few things here on the blog these upcoming days! Here's the first one to start them all.

A (not quite) short story before that, last Christmas I gifted myself a new camera lens. Well, it's not because I behaved really well last year, but I just felt like I NEED to get it at that time because I read it somewhere that Samsung has discontinued (or will!) the development of NX series cameras and lenses so I kinda freaked out a little because I was afraid I'd not be able to get them anymore, since I've been planning to get a lens for my NX300 for so long but had been delaying it, due to financial consideration (LOL). 

My first plan was to get the 30mm f2.0 Prime Lens because I saw Ci Fanny used it and I really liked how her photos turned out to be, but apparently I couldn't find it sold anywhere in Indonesia anymore. But then on my research I found this 20mm f2.8 Ultra Wide Angle Lens was on sale, and after reading some of the reviews, I decided to give it a go.

I've been trying to get used to this lens these few months and I'm quite happy with the outcomes. Though it works better on taking the close-up (macro) pictures, but it still turns out good on landscapes. What I loved most about it is that it is light-weight (go pancake!), so it's portable and really handy!

Wait, why does it feel like this is a lens review post? Alright, back to the topic. I brought my camera back to le hometown on Chinese New Year and this year we went again to one of my favorite places on earth, Pulau Samosir! I can't tell how much I love being here. Despite of have been doing nothing for 3 days there, I still enjoyed it so much and really can't wait to be back again the next time!

Here are some of my random shots taken there. Nothing really fancy though, I just feeling like sharing them, that's it! :)

Don't you agree that some of the pictures of the market looked like it's some places from the 90's? LOL. By the way, I'll be going on an (exciting!) trip next month so hopefully by that time I'll be able to take better pictures with the new lens. 

As a closing, here's a photo of me and my family from the trip. Just one of it because it's the only photo where I looked pretty okay LOL. Oh, and wishing everyone a happy and prosperous Chinese new year, it's still not late for it, right? Catch on you later!
