Panasonic DMC FZ20

as the classes started to go on just like usual, i developed a special interest towards this one class, mph1113-digital photography, which requires us to spend a whole lot of sum for a slr camera.
we were shocked!i'm talking about a 3k to 4k++ camera here.
mr kenneth, the class cordinator aka lecturer is okay.his a cool dude with a passion of artistry in him.he takes pictures,that's what he do beside than teaching us.
i have no problem with the class, except for that lah, the camera that we must purchase by the end of week 4.

so, me and elly took a step forward, we headed out downtown to search for the so called camera.the only camera that we hunted for was the panasonic fz20.mr ken said that that camera is great and it cost around 2k or so.and we did find a shop in pertama that sell it for 2k, full with accesories.

i couldn't wait to take my first picture with it.
uh, btw, panasonic fz20 fall in the "slr like" category.
its like, before this i dun even care what the category is, i was just imagined myself one day with one of those black camera that profesional photographer used..hmmm...

mr ken post these requirements on the mmudigiphoto yahoo group.

MMU 1

so, the journey is begun...me and mmu.

last week was the orientation week...first time living in the hostel.the orientation week was suck as we had to wake up early in the morning and sleep late at night...well, maybe because mostly i was on the phone during the night..it was the only time that i could use the phone.


sports activity during the orientation week..we had to wear the t-shirts they provided for us.urgghhh...

i cried on the first night in mmu...hihihihih..suddenly i felt alone...called my mom and she laughed...the second night was okay and so the same as the other night until now.

yesterday i attended the first classes...the morning class was cancelled due to the visit fromthe crown prince of perak (raja nazrin).they used the e theatre room...and the evening classes was a short one...just some introduction here and there.

i'm gonna have a photography class soon...which means, i have to buy the digital slr camera....$$$$$.....nuff said on that.u get it.

my roommates are cool..one from johor and one from shah alam..
nanti my next post, i'm gonna tell u more about my roommates, my neighbours, and the sengal list we made.
