Reads + Art Prints

A week or two ago I managed to grab the 44th issue of Frankie from a shop I just happened to stumble upon while looking for a Fujifilm Instax 210 to add to my collection of cameras (which I ended up deciding not to buy after looking at the price of a pack of film and instantly feeling the impact it would have had on my wallet OTL). Now, I'm looking for a 35mm back for my Diana F+ since, let's face it - 35mm film is much cheaper than the current 120mm film I'm using. So if anyone (a.k.a my fellow Singaporean readers) knows where I can buy the 35mm back at a lower retail price, feel absolutely free to contact yours truly (I encourage you to). Sorry about the sidetrack but anyway, I was pretty excited in getting to read Benjamin Law's witty articles in Frankie again, after almost half a year of no Frankie-loving at all due to national exams and such. :( I have to get my hands on the latest issue soon - I feel horribly outdated.

I've been reading the January issue of National Geographic too - interesting, really. The article I was most interested in was the featured article about how identical twins with their identical D.N.A could possibly lead to new discoveries about human behaviour , illnesses and the like.*(Feel free to correct me here, in case my one-sentence summary is off by a bit.) Now I don't want to get into all the scientific details (impossible though, I'd have to copy and paste the whole article if I wanted to) so I'll leave it to you to get your own copy if you're interested in reading more about the article. (I bet you don't see many blogs which blog about scientific studies, do you? This is what happens when you're a science student. I am a geek by night.)

Last Saturday, I've also managed to buy a couple of art prints from Stephanie Cahyadi while I was at the LaSalle College of The Arts Open House 2012. No words are necessary besides the standard "I love them very much" for beautiful artworks such as these.

All in all, the past week has been good to me. How has yours been, dear beloved readers? xx


  1. I love these prints and Frankie magazine (if only they would sell it in our country). Can't help with the 35mm back, I bought mine when I was on a trip in Londen. But it is definitly worth having it!

  2. Ohhh...the Frankie magazine seems so lovely! I have heard a lot about it, but sadly they aren't sold where I live. Though I would love to get one someday as I would love to see all the vintage things and photos in Frankie! :) By the way, where is Frankie sold?

    1. Hi there! You're right - Frankie is made up of pure loveliness! It's the only magazine I've ever fallen in love with! :) Since it's not sold in your area, you could also try buying the magazine directly from their website: http://secure.morrisonmedia.com.au/shop/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=19

      I'll be replying to your other comment soon, by the way! :D
