NIKON AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20MM F/4.5-5.6G VR

Nikon launched the new Nikon AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20MM F/4.5-5.6G VR lens on 31 May 2017. It was available starting from late June 2017. This inexpensive and lightweight lens was designed specifically for APS-C Nikon cameras. It comes with a Nikons Pulse Motor for a very fast and quiet focusing. The best thing about this lens is that it comes with Vibration Reduction system (VR). This is rare for an Ultra Wide Angle lens. Other lenses in this category such as Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM and Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 SP Di-II LD Aspherical (IF) doesnt have any stabilization system in them. Although, those two lenses have a better aperture. Having a stabilizer system in an Ultra Wide Angle lens can be a big bonus for some. More »

While fishes like Empurau and Semah is the most sought after fishes in Sarawak, there’s one fish that not much people know. Unlike Empurau and Semah, this fish is not as expensive as those other two.

Cabeijo Restaurant, Sibu, Sarawak

Recently we went to a restaurant called Cabeijo in Sibu, Sarawak. We are a big fan of a dish called Lalapan.

The Current Craze: D24 Durian McFlurry at McDonald’s

Since 24th August 2017, people are going crazy over a new McDonald’s Mcflurry flavour, the D24 Durian McFlurry. Why is it become such a craze? Well, it’s the king of fruits flavored ice cream. It doesn’t need any other special reason.

McDonald’s said, it wasn’t just a flavor but it will contain bits of the real durian flesh. It got us very excited because we love durian so much. But our first few attempts to get it ended up disappointing because it was sold out. We decided to wait for a few days until the hype decrease a bit.
