Finally, one Nikon D90!

Dear cousin’s quest for a DSLR camera was finally over!  After making hundred calls to dear nephew confirming what model, what lens, best price, good deals etc, she finally made a decision!  Phew!  I must really salute dear nephew for his patience.  If I were him, I would have told her off before the calls reached 10!  Hahaha!
She searched every recommended website; mudah.my, free trade zone and shashinki.com to check the pricing; deciding between buying a new camera or a second hand unit.  Other than dear nephew, she called up friends who own a DLSR and even friends who are in the camera industry!  Serious ah?!
When she finally asked me for my opinion, I only said, “I will not buy it over the internet, I rather go to a shop to purchase something which will make me a few thousand ringgit poorer.  At least if there’s any complications or problems, I will know who to call or where to go.  Call me old fashion if you want.”
She heeded my advice and bought her camera in a shop recommended by her friend who has connections with camera shops!  Not bad, she has high powered friends!  Of course she got the best deal!  The guy who sold it to her asked her not to tell anybody how much he had sold the unit for!  Hahaha!
When she took out her credit card to swipe, the guy said he had to charge her 2% credit card charge.  “Huh?  I could buy 2 SD cards with that amount charged!  I rather pay you in cash!”  Aiyoh, the extent she would go to get her best deal.  She went back to the shop the next day with cash!  No joke!  Even the shop owner got a shock with her behaviour.  Aiyah, woman and money; they either part in a spree or glue till death do them part.  Erm, I think I belong to the latter.  Hehehe…
In the afternoon, she went out to accomplish her mission.  The moment she arrived home, she had a west to east smile (Ozz’s favourite) on her face. 
This was it?
The bag even had “terima kasih” (thank you) printed on it!
Hahaha!
A package of a successful deal!
Yup!  This was what she got.
The body: the original Nikon D90.
The Sigma 18-200mm lens gonna join to the body.
Wah!  She knew what she was doing one leh!
See the way she held the camera.
“Ada gaya”  (Got style)!
Capping on another gadget.
That also she knew how wor…
“Now, listen to me.
When you want to put the camera down, you must place it either this way
– body down, lens up
or
“place the whole camera and lens flat on a flat surface.
Okay?!”
That was instruction from dear cousin.
Aiyah, I will not touch your new baby one.
Don’t worry!
I more scared of it than it of me!
Hahaha!
Dear cousin said the first time she had her first camera when she was young,
she slept holding on to the camera.
Hahaha!
Wonder if she’s gonna sleep holding on to this guy!
Wahahaha!
Oh, I cannot wait for her to use it!  I want to see the quality of the pictures, especially my much love of the woods and nature.  You are going to carry it in the woods when we trek, right?  Huh?  Huh?
When was the last time you bought something exciting?
Quote of the Day:
Photography is an investigation of both the outer and the inner worlds.
The first experiences with the camera involve looking at the world beyond the lens,
trusting the instrument will ‘capture’ something ‘seen.’
The terms shoot and take are not accidental;
they represent an attitude of conquest and appropriation.
Only when the photographer grows into perception and creative impulse
does the term make define a condition of empathy
between the external and the internal events.
