And this is the story you know through rose-tinted shades.

7:13 PM

Finally developed and collected 3 rolls of my film negatives taken over the past few vacations (Malacca with Brandon's family and Jakarta/Bali with my family) and I am so pleased with the results!!! There's something about the images produced by film that I really love - I'm not sure if it's the melancholy that comes attached to the image of each fleeting moment, or the nostalgic vibes these grainy and often too underexposed pictures give off - but it's enough to keep me hooked onto this old lomography sport forever.
It's expensive though, and I think my wallet is starting to cry. As if the rolls of negative is not costly enough (1 friggin roll giving you 36 images costs at least $10 if you're using slides like me, that produces these crazy colours after processing), the developing is another bomb. Buying 3 rolls of film means spending $30. Developing them is another $30. Do your math and you know I spent my entire week's allowance or 10 hours of my pay on this!!!! Cries and sobs but still stubbornly refuses to change.
And don't you dare say "can use app filters what", I will MURDER you. It is not the same!!!!

All the images are taken with my Superheadz's Pink Slim Dress which Zhiyi got for me on my 17th birthday and it's one of my most prized obsessions ever!! Not because Zhiyi got it but because the item itself is such a gem HAHAHA. Nah I'm kidding thank you dear bff for this lovely plastic toy camera. I could still remember how I was contemplating between this and a Blackbird but I have no regrets choosing this at all. Practical, convenient and best of all, it weighs no shit unlike a DSLR which threatens to break your neck/arm off.

In order of first to last, the rolls I used were: Provia 100F (blue tones), Sensia 100 (pink tones) and Tungsten T64 (idk what mixture of tones). If anyone knows where I can get cheaper film please let me know. I don't mind if they're expired!!!


Thankfully though, I don't own a one-step (contemplated this for months in 2013) or else I would really be broke spending my pay on those overpriced 600 Poloroids that they hardly even produce anymore.

That's enough of my camera geekyness for now. I still have one more roll of Ektachrome E100 from Bali that has not been developed yet so... Till then hehehe.
