Production Learning

Is good to have strong knowledge on the production site. Like in :-

- How's the gloss/matt lamination machine looks like? How to laminate it to the card?
- How is the dicut plate look like?
- Creasing line machine is like? how about staple bing and punch hole thingy?
- The machine to run-down the numbers in does it work?
- After UV the spotted area, what is the next step to make it dry? How to make the plate?
- How it goes on the hot stamping thing?

And YES! I learn alot today.

Ken bring me to alot of places this afternoon. Serdang, Balakong, ETC. I guess this is my fieldtrip day. Though the weather is hot and humid, but yet, I still wanted to go and didn't complain anything because I know - this is the CHANCE I need to see it with my own eyes.

I know that bosses from the main factory would not allowed the outsider to see their so-called SECRET place and yet, I am proud of Ken for having the initiative to take me here and there. Even some of the factory, we just go inside and Ken talked their language - to be more friendly with them. And by then, I can see how all the machines goes.

Not only that, I can manage to get some samples with Ken's help. I got to know that Artcard one sided coated gsm is totally different with normal Artcard. And yet, I can have a small piece of sample about MDF Board, Plywoods, Chipboard, etc

As Ken mentioned, this is the BONUS he can give me. And yes, I can say Thank You Ken.

Is because, production site really do help me alot. Currently now, the place I'm working at, I have to deal alot of things. Sometimes, I forgot and have mistakes myself. And that's why..I hope is still not too late for me to learn new things. All I have to do is, joit everything down, staple it and remember it.

This is not the end of the learning part too. There's alot. Acrylic, Glass, Metal, Aluminium, etc..All this I have to learn as well. Because, I am one leg kick. From A-Z I need to know everything as am doing with signage, interiors, outdoor and indoor advertising.

Will also asking for another supplier to have their permission so that I could bring the other designer for a fieldtrip to their factory. And, glad that this supplier kept asking us to go there so that we will have a rough idea what are they doing. What are the do's and don'ts in future.

Though am tired...but yet am HAPPY!!! ^^

Fat Spoon Café

This was introduce by devi and was said that the Hot chocolate there was nice. And yes, I went there with her to have a try. Nice environment and damn..lovin it too...called "fat spoon"

If you love your kindergarten life, you should be LOVING this! Cause this is superb oldschool modern retro style of life!!

Guess what their menu look like? I bet you wouldn't believe me.

I didnt try this as I ate my breakie earlier at "Departure Lounge" But I order something somehow

While waiting for it to be served, I managed to snap some photos.
(sorry, photos might not turns out good as my camera batt was running very very low)

photos sticking at the wall randomly using polaroid

The menu board was using those primary school coloured chalk and board.

Ain't you will flash back of your old school days??

And there's a part where every cooking material was being hanged - as decoration

Here's the beverage area where you can get your desserts and drinks at. But do not worried, you will be served too.

Part of the place I manage to capture..because...

there's fullhouse inside!! it was fully packed.

so now, you know why I didn't manage to capture all...cause most of the thing was blocked by head and heads...hahahaha

my big fat hot chocolate cost RM8.00++

Make an effort to wake up in the morning and planned to have breakfast with Devi. And here, we have our very breakfast at Departure Lounge - Mont Kiara.

But never knew that the business was so good and packed, so Devi went to the counter and told them to reserve one place for two seater and will be back around 10minutes.

And YES, They do reserve the seat for us :) and putting a Reserved Stand on the table too.

Blackbird Fly - 01

Last two years back, I bought myself a christmas present of BlackBird, Fly. And started to shoot it until one of my friend borrowed it as a prop for his photoshooting. I trusted him and don't mind to borrow to him either. But after awhile, I got news from him that he lost my blackbird and will buy me one. But in the end, I told him that we can share half of the price together as blackbird actually cost high.

Well, I bought Blackbird that moment is because is 50% off from the normal price. Meaning I bought at RM200 like that.

Anyway, I couldn't wait any longer..and when I went to Mooks, Pavillion. They rebate me RM40 and YES, I bought it my own. Told my friend that he can slowly pay me. And there, I starting all over again to learn the shooting.

Here are some of it. But dump me, I forgot to jot it down on a piece of paper of what aperture I'm using. ><
