Twisted Mind Twisted Number

One fine Friday afternoon, I am at a bike gathering... Dubai Bike Week.

What is the different between 295 and 305? Try to answer it as if those number carry monetary value, in whatever currency you all see fit.

In my case, I was at one junction, do I purchased the one with Dh295 price tag? Or should I buy the one with Dh305 tag? Mathematically, those two number doesn't bring any significant different. But, psychologically number 2 is lower than number 3, hence YOUR mind will registered it as cheaper! I came a crossed this kind of situation a couple of time, at that front number really somehow determine should you or should you not buy the items. But, in reality, it doesn't really make much of a different. But the point is, marketeer must've known human weaknesses when it come to dealing with numbers. Most often than not, we've seen products priced at $2.99, $199... Why can't it be $3 or $200?

I think, most will agree if I say, $199 is still ONE HUNDRED plus plus... whereas $200 is a clear TWO HUNDRED!

Anyway, in my case, since that my mind was twisted at that moment in time, I end up leaving the shop empty handed. Sigh! No Ed Hardy tee...

But, on the other hand, I save $295 or so. Did i?

As you can see or notice, lately, I've been posting on my blog, some of the photos taken using my Nikon, which I bought mid of last month. An upgrade from my other camera, Canon G9 (a semi-auto/semi-manual good point-and-shoot digital camera). So, anywhere I go now, I'm carrying a slingbag, with my bulky toy in it.

Somehow it goes to show that, this is what I am into right now. Photography. But, still on the learning curve, the kindergarten of photography. It is a fun and healthy hobby, I would say.

I've tried to incorporate riding and photography, but somehow it is not that easy. You know, riding Harley with bulky sling bag can be a bit dangerous. Furthermore, it is rainy season in Kuala Lumpur. Maybe I ought to do it one day, travel the world on the bike and capture the moment through the lens. (not the world as in the whole wide World)

Therefore I Blog!

Saturday morning, nothing much for me to do today.
Planned to go for a jog but my leg are still aching from yesterday beach day.

So I thought, why not introducing who I am...
So here am I.. the blogger, sipping a cuppa coffee at the White House Coffee House in Kota Bharu. Missing from the photo were two 'nasi lemak bungkus', one 'nasi lauk ikan' and one 'nasi dagang gulai ayam'. A breakfast for two.
