Happy Graduation to ME!

It was my graduation ceremony today but I didn't go.
1. I didn't really want to spend Rm350 and dress uncomfortably on a Saturday while everyone with a va-jay-jay had on make up and ankle-breaking heels.
2. I mistook the deadline for another day.

Instead, what did I do? I bought a BIGASS lens.

Sigma 70-200mm
About as tall as a 600ml water bottle and weighs in at 1.3kg.

There goes another Rm850 (Mum footed Rm500 as a birthday present [30th August!]).

"Why so cheap", you ask? That's because it's a second hand lens that looks like crap on the outside. As you can see, the paint job is peeling at the bottom. But what the heck, right? It's a major upgrade from the kit lens. I think my biceps got bigger just holding the darned thing (and I have to stop looking at them every minute. Such a vain pot, I am). The whole effing thing is exceptionally fast and the range is just crazy! I now have a lens to shoot concert photos with in Sep-tem-barrr!

All thanks and fooyohs go to Jason for calling me and Mum for being my loan shark!
