自從有咗自己部數碼相機之後, 我就已經冇再曬相喇, 要睇相就只有喺電腦螢幕上.. 直至舊年十月嘅某一日, 貓咪媽媽話我知團購網站上有免費相片印刷, 我當時就覺得反正免費我又冇蝕底, 所以拎咗先, 到時用唔用得著先算.. 就咁拖到新年前一個星期, 終於有時間下載軟件, 開始整我本相片本子.. 呢個軟件又幾好喎, 多功能而且又容易使用, 想點樣設計都冇問題, 雖然我完美主義嘅性格, 搞到我要一個星期時間先滿意自己嘅作品, 呵呵!! 呈交及上載嘅過程可以話係順利, 四日之後即係除夕日早上, 我就收到我生平第一本相片本子喇, 有本嘢喺手睇相, 感覺的確係實在好多!!
after since i owned a digital camera i have not sent any photos to print anymore, viewing has been on the PC screen only.. until one fine day last October, Cat Mamarazzi told me about free photobook offering online, i thought just grab it first since i won't rugi, whether i'll use it would be another issue.. and so i dragged till a week before CNY, downloaded the software and finally started to work on it.. i love the software as it's easy to use and packed with lots of features, i can personalized the photobook any way i like, though being a perfectionist cost me one whole week's time before i was satisfied with my work, haha!! the submission and upload was seamless and in four days right on CNY eve, i received my very first photobook, viewing photos on papers is surely more substance!!

    1. Very nice! Thanks for sharing.

      SK, the speed buttons don't seem to work though.

      Delete
    2. I tried the speed button ok wor.

      Delete
    3. It works well for me too.

      Delete
    4. hmmm, could have been due to different platforms and browser types and browser version.. ah, one code cannot fit all, kind of modified a little of my scripts, hope they work at least slightly better now?? :)

      Delete
    5. Good day all!

      Hmm speaking of the speed button, I got something to say too! It's somehow working for me, but I don't feel much difference between the last 2 speed buttons, I mean in terms of speed. When I click the fastest speed, it still move quite slow, haha xD Or I shall say, the fastest speed button is not fast enough, may be can consider to make it a bit faster? Hmm don't get me wrong, not that I'm not interested to see your slide shows and photos one by one, just that if the case like this where you have very short sentence for each photo, can speed up the slide shows, so that your readers can choose their own preferred speed to view.....

      Delete
    6. ok feedback listened and now i've reduced to three speed options, probably the bigger the gap only we can see the difference.. anyway, so sad lah, everyone just wants to choose the fastest speed, hahaha!! :D

      Delete
    7. I like it slow. Can see and probe at SK's photos. See whether can see zits ke apa ke while the photos were moving! LOL

      Delete
    8. to each their own, fast or slow, that is why i try to please more by having speed options, haha.. else i would just go with the speed i am okay with and everyone just follows.. this blog is rather "democratic" i would say :p

      Delete
    9. LOL...sure SK will touch up the photos already if got zits...Must be perfect one mah.

      Delete
    10. aiyah, no lah, lazy to touch up each and every photo lah.. just choose the better ones lor, somemore the photos on the photobook are not large also, can't notice lah.. haha!!

      Delete
  2. Morning!!! Morning!!! Happy Friday!!! I like the doraemon photobook!!!! I always wanted to make one, but I was too lazy, usually I took the pictures then ask my sister to do it, hehe!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. lazy is just an excuse!! i also dragged for my very first book, but after i've done and received, i loved it and the next few books i did it with lots of joy~~ 萬事起頭難 mah, move your butt and start your first step right away.. the Doraemon Expo would be a nice thing to do a photobook leh~~ :)

      Delete
    2. Yah lo...plus I've been there twice, hehe...must go again before it ends!!!

      Maybe I can make one for my air show thing...hahaha!!! (shyiok sendiri)

      Delete
    3. eih, i heard they are starting to pack the things already, a friend went last week and said there were less to see leh.. so, i think better you save the money and no need go for the 3rd time lah..

      actually anything will also shyiok one, because the outcome is nice and you feel great having to flip that book~~ 感覺很爽!!

      Delete
    4. Betuil tu...first book was like very slow. Like dont know where to start and how to do. took long time to explore. then subsequent one really syok lor. enjoyed selecting the photos and touching up the photos.

      Try la Xiao Ying. Very syok de playing with the photobook

      Delete
    5. yeah, the first one really took time, need to explore and to get used to it.. but subsequent ones, quite fast lah, because already know how to do it and familiar with the tools already.. 小影 must do one or two for her airshow in SG lah..

      Delete
    6. I'm seriously no time argh...my timetable already super full...I need sleep at 2330 then wake up at 600...so much work to do...maybe stop blogging for a week, then only can make one lo, hahaha~~~

      Delete
    7. aiyoh, no need to do one shot lah.. can do 2-3 pages a day for like 30 minutes, then i think one week or two can finish doing lor 有志者事竟成 mah~~ :)

      Delete
  3. I'm no good at these things - old man not so tech-savvy. You do it for me, can? Wink! Wink!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. one does NOT need to be tech-savvy to do the photobook.. it's so easy, if you can blog then i am sure you can do that!! just click and drag and drop only lah.. but if you want to pay me RM100 (not inclusive of the cost of photobook and delivery) to do that, i don't mind doing if for you~~ :D

      p/s: even Small Kucing can do that!!

      Delete
    2. I believe that, like my eldest sister, she always very blur and always say don't know anything about computer or software things, but she still be able to finish one by herself without asking!!!

      Delete
    3. yalah, that's just excuse not doing things lah.. my sister also, last time even ATM she scared to use and always ask me to withdraw money for her.. now that she did once and knows how to do it, like instead of give you a fish better teach you to fish right??

      Delete
    4. I like the "fishing" quote, it's very suitable for parents nowadays, if kept on doing for them then they won't be able to learn anything...

      Delete
    5. yeah lah.. but i think this quote is not new also, many parents already knew that by heart and yet, they would fish and feed their kids with the fish they caught..

      Delete
    6. Ok lah...I went and they said can get free one...so I did everything they asked...and then I got an email from them - buy one and get one free. No, thank you lah. Just want to play-play, ask me to pay...never mind lah. Old pensioner, I don't have so much money to throw. After all, you said photos not sharp and darker. :(

      Delete
    7. if you saw Small Kucing's FB post today, she's sharing some free promo, go and get one and play-play lah.. errr, the outcome depends on the quality of your photo also lah.. if you upload sharp photos then won't be bad.. but one thing from experience, brighten up your photos a bit so that the printout won't be so dark..

      enjoy doing that, and share with us your photobook when you got yours!! i hope you don't put all food pics~~ :p

      Delete
    8. Hahaha...I was expecting he put all food pictures that he found in Sibu and also the food that he cook lo!!!

      Delete
    9. yeah, i think that would be a great idea for him.. all his food photos look so welcoming and delicious, it would be nice to put them into an album - after all i guess 90% of photos he took are food?? :p

      Delete
    10. 90% is food then 10% are the name or the signboard of the restaurant...hahaha~~~

      Delete
    11. hahaha, yes yes!! you are so smart, i would very much agree to that.. so all photos can use lah, 10% signboard or restaurant and then 90% food.. :p

      Delete
    12. LOL....wah charging RM100 ah...Manyak untung leh. Hmm...come to think of it it's not difference from those pre-wedding photos leh. they charge thousand of RM just to print. Can ownself snap and print. can always ask photobook and select better type of paper punya leh.

      ahem ahem...last time i also scare of using ATm leh....even save up all the ATM slips. Just in case there are something wrong with the account. LOL.

      Got another free one. Really no need to pay punya STP. Try la.

      STP will put Melissa's photos I think. Sure a lot of graduation photos not yet developed leh.

      Delete
    13. hahaha, because it was for STP so i charge RM100 lah.. i was trying to motivate him to do it himself since it's so simple.. it will be more fun to do it yourself, and especially the moment you received your photobook, it's like your own baby delivered.. you'll sure keep on flipping and admiring your photos :p

    2. Haha Small Kucing! Next time if wanna get first commenter must stand by at the pc earlier, say about 8am? Hehe!
      I notice SK usually publish his posts around that time wo! Is it merely coincident or got 'feng shui' timing one, SK? Mind to share? :p :p

      Delete
    3. eih, my auspicious timing mah, very easily can catch my time lah.. one of the 8:X8am sure you will see new post, probably every alternate days also (excluding weekends and holidays) :p

      Delete
    4. Nowadays, I sure cannot be FC anymore.

      Before 9am still not staring at PC. Smartphone also won't see because I do look at them while walking. ;)

      Delete
    5. well, FC or LC, i still sukak you lah Mak Glam.. and i just realized you have been using your phone to blog hop and comment all these while, i am impressed!!

      Delete
    6. Meow can write nenek kebayan stories from her phone. I lagi impressed with that! LOL

      Delete
    7. yeah she is super lah!! petite body but with BIG heart and also BIG fingers, hahaha~~ :p

      Delete
    8. Lina...jom we demand SK change auspicious time to 9am onewards LOL....cannot la 8am onward...travelling to work leh...how to be FC...

      Better not walk and look at smartphone. Nanti kena scolding :p

      but my nenek kebayan story full of typo error mah..till some more called me Typo Queen lor...You tak nampak meh, Lina.

      Manybe that's why I tarak put writing in my photobooks la. Mana tau if never see properly then got typo error there then no nice lor.

      Delete
    9. aiyoh, 8 baru auspicious mah, 9 not that auspicious already, haha!! but sometimes fun reading meow's cat language lah, probe us to think what she was trying to say, hahaha!!

      it will be nice to put some writing in the photobook too.. for example the place you go lah, or the dates the photos are taken.. but if Meow is thinking about not nice to have typo, sure you will be more careful and double check many times right?? :)

      Delete
  5. Yikes!! Photobook have share function meh??? Very good leh. I didnt know about this....

    ahem...if i have printed the photos can i still share it? how to do that ah? Sorry ah...me blur blur sotong leh. Lucky photobook is such user friendly system or else i would blur out of it lo.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yes they have it.. i think you have been receiving too many emails from photobook till you blur like sotong.. if you still keep that email about "upload confirmation", they have a link for you to preview your photobook.. else, if you have deleted or lost those emails, login to your account in photobook and go to "My Projects", each of your project has a preview feature..

      on the preview, just click Share and choose either FB or Blogspot (or any other social media), then copy the link to the shared album.. you are done.. see my Japan photobook for example, printed and received and the shared one still available.. :)

      Delete
    2. adoi...see! everyday learn new thing. Really very good la have the sharing function. can tell friends about the photobook via sharing function.

      Will try to do this later. See if it works for me. If ter-opss will ask you help can ah....dont charge me rm100 wor :p

      Delete
    3. besides, you can also "Create Proofs" to get the software to generate images of your photobook, then you can upload this to your FB or blog instead.. got a few photobook i submitted, they were not able to generate preview online due to system failure, so i just have to use the designer software to do that.. hahaha!!

      no lah, you informed me about all these promo, i free professional advice to you~~ :D

      Delete
  6. OMGH!!!! I super love the doremon photobook. Thanks for telling me about can use own background for it or else i would not have know about it.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yeah, it's better to have your own background so that it matches your own design theme right?? :)

      Delete
    2. yes lo...rugi my first photobook i didnt know this . Only use their background. Their background are nice la but then still own one can match with theme mah. better

      Delete
    3. yeah, their background are nice but also quite limited.. if we can choose our own then sure better match with our design and theme..

      Delete
  7. wow, that's interesting! I don't send my photos fro printing anymore. That could be years ago. Maybe I should get a photo book like yours one day.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I remember 10 years ago, I did my own printing using my Canon printer on glossy paper. Now my printer is gone and I don't think I will do my own printing anymore. I just keep my photos in my external hard disk.

      Delete
    2. This one is free. Only pay for postage. Kinda nice leh to have it in a book

      Delete
    3. yeah, after since having a digital camera i didn't send for printing anymore.. until recently this photobook thing came in, and i kind of like it.. back to having prints, and actually feeling nice to see the physical photos.. and yeah, some of these books were free, and i also bought at low price during promotion..

      Delete
    4. But did you realize now a lot of people goes back to polaroid camera...they like the instant print "feeling"...but for me...polaroid is very difficult, one is the frame is very expensive, second is the "cameraman" miss shooting on the wrong angle then the frame is gonna to be waste...now I'm looking something like the LG pocket photoprint thing, hehe!!!!

      Delete
    5. i think the polaroid is more for fun lah, it's the instantaneous feeling lah when you shot and have a photo to look.. i really don't mind to have one to play play lah, especially during gatherings and taking sporting and impromptu group photos, i think it's more fun and joy actually.. but if go travelling then of course cannot use polaroid lah, a good camera would be preferred lah..

      Delete
    6. Polaroids great when meeting famouse ppl. Selfie with them and make them sign autograph on the spot! LOL

      Delete
    7. But if shoot on the wrong thing, is cannot be undo or delete!!! That's the limitation of it...that's why I wait till so long didn't get one...

      Delete
    8. hahaha, true also.. can selfie and instantly get the autograph on the polaroid.. next time meeting up with Mak Glam must remember to bring polaroid camera!! :D

      actually polaroid is just for fun only lah.. nice to have but then no a necessity lah.. if want to get a camera, then probably a proper one first.. :)

      Delete
    9. I feel prints have more "real" feelings lor.


      Saw many using Polaroids too recently. Guess it's coming back again la the trend.

      ya wor....must selfie with Mak Glam and mintak autograph first. Or else can ask Mak Glam to go selfie and print cards with her photo to give out to us small flies la.... At least we can say we kenal this famous runner leh :p

      Delete
    10. yeah lah, the Polaroid is just a trend i guess, and especially amongst the youngsters.. probably after a while later they will not be using it already.. similar to the DSLR fever once you remember?? now i didn't see a lot of the youngsters posting photos they took using their expensive DSLR already..

      must ask Mak Glam to autograph on our photos next time we meet her, haha!!

      Delete
    11. Not really, youngsters nowadays are very rich, they'll have one polariod and one expensive DSLR, I saw a lot...especially for girls...

      I used to have one semi DSLR but I found it very heavy so I change to my current one and I love it so much, at least it's lighter, so I don't have any excuse for not carrying it around!!! =]

      Delete
    12. or maybe say the parents of the youngsters are very rich and the youngsters never thought of saving the money lah.. yeah, i think last time the DSLR was such a trend, everyone must have one.. but then now, errr, maybe not many already right?? lazy to bring just leave it at home :p

      Delete
    13. Don't know, maybe bloggers prefer dslr, as last week I went to this soap DIY making class, most of the bloggers are holding dslr on hand, not like mine small small one, look so unproffsional like that!!!

    1. Now that i have digital camera, i hardly develop any photos and with digital camera, those photos you don't like, can delete away ya... Not like that time, the old type camera, when you have to develop everything and do not know how's the pictures looks like till the photos are being develop...

      Delete
    2. Super hot in KL too...no rain!!! =[

      Delete
    3. I also have digital camera but the feel of printed photo and the one in digital form is not same. For me la...digital form is more fragile. Drop the hard disk, scratched the CD or PC kena virus...all will be gone.

      paper form not perfect too la. prone to water , termites or fire but then at least got like back up lo.

      Like if you wanna let people see the photo of a trip then just give see the book kau tim la. If in digital form, some time got not so nice photos but yet sayang to delete...tak kan la wanna give the visitor see that

      Delete
    4. yeah.. i guess with the digital camera era, we hardly send out photos for printing anymore.. of course, with digital camera we tend to take more photos than ever also, hence if want to print them all, would really cost us a bomb!! haha.. but this photobook kind of nice, make us select the best photos and make them into an album (free to design how the album looks).. i like it lah, it's nice to have this handy thing to flip to refresh the memories :p

      Delete
    5. and my "auntie-ism" says can also sumbat as many photos in that album as possible leh....if in 4R then bit susah la...the cheapest already 30sen satu leh....

      Delete
    6. yalor, hahaha!! i also try to sumbat more photos, that's why you see my design are all "comic" style lah, at least 4 photos on a page.. like that nicer to see mah~~ :p

    2. That days i saw they have very good promotion leh...RM90 for 6 books ah...or something like that...really worth it leh

      Delete
    3. oh, RM99 for 6 books, that was what i bought!! average RM16.50 per book, and right after that, only they have groupon promo at RM12 per book, so bad lah!! but luckily Photobook gave me another free copy, so kind of balance my emotion lah, haha~~

    4. Elo, elo, am back today.. Amboi, miss 1 post already 117 comments when I come today.. SK, lei hou geng!

      Ok, so the topic is about Photobook huh.. Frankly and honestly, I don’t really know about this, so I’m worried I don’t have so much to comment.. I only got to know about photobook when Meow sent me a message in FB about 2 weeks ago to ask me have I claimed it from Groupon, something like that.. Then when I click the link, only I know what Photobook is..

      Yep, call me jakun.. Malu wana say, but well, I gotta admit right, else, I won’t have anything to write lor, kan?

      Delete
    5. Then I also hear Photobook from Meow again when she tagged me in FB last week to claim in from Social Living..

      Wah, without Meow, I think I will still be a jakun living under my own shell.. Like katak di bawah tempurung.. Meow, lei hou lek ahh… SAHM but still modern and up to date, knows a lot about everything, like SK said, BIG hearts, BIG brains, BIG knowledge..

      I FTWM but so what, so jakun, only knows how to go to work, go home, sigh..

      Delete
    6. How many of you claimed the Photobook from Living Social? How it works? They will ask you to send photos to them, and then they assemble the photos for you in a book? Izzit? And we just pay for postage?

      Wah, it’s good to have all the photos in a book.. Those days, we have it in albums, and when wana move house or cleanup or what, malas lor, all the albums need a place.. Heavy pulak.. Especially wedding album.. Since now can have everything in a book, brilliant idea!

      Delete
    7. But hor, I was thinking, if I do this Photobook, I dunno where and how should I start first.. Coz I have stopped printing photos since 10 years ago !! Yes, 10 years ago.. Sigh, how to dig out the photos leh?

      And 10 years ago, I saved those photos in a thumbdrive, I think that thumbdrive is already corrupted by now.. Haiz.. I tried opening back to see the photos, but all gone.. Really regretted..

      I think I need to start Photobooking as soon as possible, since this is the in-thing now.. Then after I have done it, maybe can follow SK, show it and blog about it, then I don’t feel so jakun afterall..

      Delete
    8. If Mc fake one must be due to babysitter problem la...betul tak?

      Got nice and cheap thing must share share tell friends mah. If quiet then wont untung also. We do good then maybe people will return good to us leh...betul tak?

      My photobook was from groupon. Livingsocial was other punya. That one I never used before but since they giving free so i kiasu and try la. hope jadi lor...but that one only 36 pages. Photobook giving 40 pages

      Tu la baiknya photobook coz it's compact. like a book. Not like bulky photo album. Easy to store and carry around.

      Hmm....where to start ah...why not start with last year? your family journey from Jan-dec. I had real fun doing photobook for 2013 journey. Jan till dec...events..special days etc...flipping through the book was like refreshing all the happy moments that happen last year..of course put only happy moment in la...betul?

      Delete
    9. aiyoh, where got 1 day only?? Fri, Sat, Sun means 3 days passed lah and now only Princess Ribbon wanna come in to spam, hahaha!! without her, my comments cannot go beyond 200 lah..

      i also didn't know about the Photobook thing until Small Kucing informed me.. that time still very ignorant and also indifferent about photo printing lah.. but then after getting that free book, i treat it as play-play a bit lor.. never expect i end up liking it and bought more books leh..

      why always say yourself jakun?? haha.. Meow, i think she is asking how to do the photobook and not what photo to start with lah.. you need to download a software, then you will use this software to design your own photobook.. any background you like, any presentation style you like, any number of photos you like.. YOUR PHOTOBOOK, YOUR SUKAK!! okay?? it's merely drag and drop and i am sure Princess Ribbon can do it lah since she is so smart right??

      the photobook is the in-thing meh?? hahaha, i think if they don't give free one, nobody will care to print also.. just see on screen lah.. but then true also, got something on hand to flip and to see feel more nicer :)

    10. Elo elo, Princess Ribbon reporting, over over.. Now is lunch time, Princess Ribbon is here, over over..

      Today I didn't go out for lunch lah.. All the "human" dead liao, all quietly sneaked out, so nobody left in the office to bring us go makan lunch la.. So they all went downstairs the cafe to eat.. If downstairs cafe, I don't want lor.. Coz if cafe, everyday I can eat, rite... So here I am, with my cup of Milook, and dropping by SK's blog for "kopitiam chat"..

      Normally we "cari mangsa" la.. Cari those salesmen to fetch us out lor.. Coz ahh, they got petrol allowance ma.. of coz la sit their car go out eat.. Takkan we drive ourself kan? We don't have petrol allowance coz we are not sales ma.. So usually they are the ones who bring us out.. So today, they are not in, we 'sik ji ki" lor...

      Sorry for yakking on my this salesmen and car allowance thingy.. Ala, already admitted I don't know much about Photobook lor, so need to drag a bit and comment about other things first, then only slowly "come back" to the main topic..

      Ooops, what am I talking? Sssshhhhh.... Somemore wana announce to people my tactic meh? Princess Jakun One Pot Rice ABC Soup Queen Polka Ribbon Minnie Mouse must be crazy...

      Delete
    11. Aiyoh SK, takkan now you still dunno my pattern meh? Ooops, I know I can't say like that.. You must be thinking "You think you are who, I need to know your pattern?"... I only spam during working hours ma, in front of my desktop.. After working hours or if I no go to work, then maybe a few lines in other people's blogs just to update myself nia..

      So today, I am back, wah, I was like, miss 1 post jeh, already 116 comments when I came in this morning.. I salute you...

      SK, call me reluctant to changes or anything you want.. What? I need to download a software? Eh, I don't have canggih pc at home and I only depend on the office desktop when I wana spam wor.. So how on earth I can download this software and design the book? Ok, even if I download in my office pc, takkan I do this during office hour meh? Later boss see how?

      You can call me jakun right here and right now.. And you can laugh all you want.. You know what I have in mind when I see the word Photobook? I thought the whole thing works like this:
      I buy the voucher online, then wait for them to contact me and ask me to send them via email the pictures I want to appear in the book.. Then they will send me some background options, like floral background, polka background, or whatever.. After I choose my background, let them know, then they will arrange the photos in the pages ikut turutan the pictures I give them.. Example if I send all baby photos, then they will print all those baby photos according to the sequence I give.. Then after that if I give wedding photos, then they will do the wedding photos after the baby photos..

      Gawd, I'm thinking twice whether wana hit the Publish button now or not.. I scared "siew sei" all of you, then I will be so malu already.. Now thinking wana find holes to hide my princess face or not..

    12. Meow, back to your first question..

      It was both, a real and a "fake" MC.. I was having flu, sore throat and cough.. Ikutkan, no need to see doctor also I won't die, can still come to work.. Worst case just keep "sang pei tai" in office only, kan? But I purposely took this opportunity to take MC la, can tell doctor I wana rest at home.. Reasonable kan? Coz already got flu voice and doctor checked my throat, it was really swollen...

      Company 1 year give 18 days MC (I know it's very little, compared to some big shots here who get 90 days MC according to positions).. So company give MC liao, must fully utilize kan, kekeke.. Janji not every month la..

      But if every month also nobody can question, coz it's our entitlement ma.. Plus, ladies easier to get MC.. Can say period pain.. I have one colleague, always take MC every month.. Penyakit wanita she says.. And she is not questioned so far.. So I think it's ok kot..

    13. Eh, SK, since you are always very innovative and creative, consider la making a "photo book" for your readers.. A mini one will do, no need so commercial do until 40 pages la.. Wah, if 40 pages, you 'sitt dai" lor, I understand one.. Since you already got the software, I guess you need colour printer and those paper.. Then once assembled everything, print out and "bind" it, something like that? Aiya, you so imaginative, maybe you can try to consider.. Can ahh?

      If you say can ahh, I think I will spam like there's no tomorrow, hogging on your mini photobook, keke.. I tak makan, tak tidur also will spam your blog and comment kau kau, kekekeke.. Nah, kidding.. If I tak makan, tak tidur, I where got energy wana come and comment, kan?

      Okok, I know I am talking nonsense.. Maybe you are cursing me right now timmm.. Maybe you are thinking "This princess jakun, nothing to talk saja wana dig out things to talk"... Well, ahem, this is me ma.. My brains can twist very fast, can always find things to talk, kekekeke..

      So how jek? On mou?

    14. aiyoh, such a long thread with long nenek kebayan comments!! read until my lunch also almost vomited out, muahahaha!!

      wah, Princess Glutton Ribbon only had her cup of milook for lunch?? how could that be?? sure not enough lah, later 2pm she will be hungry again and ordering pizza delivery for herself - 2 large pizza, 6 chicken wings, 2 garlic bread, 1 spaghetti bolognese, 1 soup of the day and 1 drink.. :D

      wah, 18 days of MC consider good lah, average can take 1.5 days of MC every month.. and which company gives 90 days of MC?? cannot be lah, i think that 90 days is hospitalization lah, i think usually no more than 20 days of MC, and hospitalization usually like 60-90 days lor.. that's what i know lah.. if 90 days then they are encouraging you to take 2 days a week ah??

      errr, you not jakun lah.. what you have been thinking maybe the very 1st generation of photobook lah.. like those photo studio or bridal studio, you took photo there and they gave you a book they design (or probably you choose the photos and theme lah).. but now everything can be done DIY lah, why not?? we do what we like what we sukak mah, then just sent it for printing.. but then your case, susah lah, i also cannot help, muahahaha!!! :D

      errr, i have been printing photos for the winners mah, though just a piece like card and not book lah.. mini book 40 pages 6"x6" in size is what i am getting from Photobook lor.. can consider your suggestion lah, provided that during year end Photobook have promo to give free books again lah, hahaha!! else one book NRP at RM79.90 (not inclusive of postage) very "jia lat" woh..

      Delete
    15. Wah, SK very impressive wor.. I admire you.. You very fast and efficient, even when replying comments.. Sekejap only I purposely come in, wah, I see your reply liao..

      Eh, I don’t know whether to feel happy or wana cry, you said you almost wana vomit your lunch reading my stories? What you eat for lunch wor? If vomit out, then wasted wor..

      Or you are like what TM said, you eat eat eat ahh, then you purposely dig your throat and vomit out all the food? Yucky.. SK, your image and impression very good one, don’t becoz of this make all your marks become zero la.. From hero to zero then I dunno how liao..

      Ok, sorry for the long vomiting introduction.. Saja wana tease you, coz you said you read my comments until wana vomit your lunch.. Hou sum you la, people wana eat lunch also cannot, stay in office drink milook only.. You, can have chance to go out lunch, wana vomit pulak.. Haiz..

      Afterwards 3-4pm, make another cup of milook lor, what to do.. No salesmen wana bring us out today, have to sik ji kei lor.. I got some biscuits in my drawer geh.. See la, later hungry can munch biscuits lor.. Eh, I wont order pizza delivery for myself lor.. Coz everyone will see and know, and I have to “yue mai” them also, cheh !! That’s reason no. 1.. Reason no.2 pulak then they will see I’m a big eater.. All my cute-manja girl impression gone-ed liao lor.. Wait, gone-ed is a word? Kekeke..

      See, I know my case “mou tak yi” (no medicine to help) la.. I didn’t know need to download software ger wor.. All the while I thought they spoon feed us everything, we just choose theme & background, and send them pictures, they do everything for us?

      When Meow tagged me in FB last Fri, I was at home kan? So I cannot claim and buy from Living Social, I need a desktop to do it comfortably.. I was thinking, ok, I will do it when I come to work on Monday (and after reading SK’s post on Photobooking first, to get to know it better).. Wah, lucky I read all the comments here first, and lucky you tell me need to download software leh..

      Yippee, so means you will consider my suggestion izzit? Eh I’m not saying ask you to send back to Photobook team to do that photobook la.. I’m asking you to come up with your own mini “photobook kinda thing” la..

      You un what I say mou.. But nevermind la, you don’t un also nevermind (your favourite sentence), coz I know my request hard to fullfil..

    16. this post "old" already mah, so if got people come in to comment also sparingly, so i can handle that load to reply immediately.. if everyone comes in at the same time, then of course susah for me to reply immediately but have to wait till become less "fong tau foh sai" first only i can quietly reply the comments mah..

      sure you hungry lah one cup of milook and a few biscuit.. haha!! so tonight sure must eat a lot lah, else how to replenish right?? i wonder if any of your colleagues are reading your blog or your comment?? if they read, then sure know you are Miss Glutton lah.. aiyah, no need to hide lah, eat more mai eat more lor, not a crime also what..

      errr, i think they have such service that you just give them the photos and they design for you geh.. or at least some ready template you just drag and drop and send.. but of course if can, design yourself as you sukak is better lah.. that means you are not going to do your photobook already lor??

      eih, i think if i print hor, more expensive than sending to Photobook to print lor, you know lah the color ink and paper are expensive if we are not doing mass printing.. furthermore if they have promo hor, sure worth geh, so i will not print myself lor unless just one two pieces lah..

    17. Eh, why you so free so fast reply the comments here? You just in in front of your work station goyang kaki now izzit? Finished your lunch liao now you “tarn kan” a cup of tea izzit?

      Eh, I am still interested in the photobook thingy la, but if wana download software and all, I don’t want lor.. Hou mafan ahh.. I don’t have a canggih pc at home, and takkan I do it in my office pc meh.. Like not so good like that lor..

      Nope, nobody knows my blog.. Some knows I write a blog, but they didn’t ask (and I didn’t tell them) the name of my blog.. Even close friends and family members also dunno I write a blog la.. Did I mention before even hubby doesn’t know? That’s why I said lastime, the people who comment and also the readers of my blog are people I don’t know, so I feel ok to write some personal stuff inside lor.. Unless people google my name and found this blog, then different story lor.. But then, why do sthey suddenly wana google my name rite? So that’s why I dare to use my own name in this blog la.. Like you said, my blog, my name, my sukak lor..

      Eating a lot is not a crime.. But I prefer to maintain my ahem manja-cute impression in the office ma.. Takkan a “see mun” manja girl suddenly eat so much, later all the impression and marks gone liao, then no more “kun yam ping” aka slave soldiers how?

      I know you are cursing me la, coz you mentioned before not everyone like manja girls la.. You may give that girl one tight slap until her ribbon fly 250m away from her..

    18. aiyoh, i already explained in the first paragraph in my previous reply mah.. hey, you also very free lor keep checking the comments, haha!! but i like that lah, keep doing this~~ :D

      eih, no need download also can because they also have online version.. you can create your photobook online, yes, upload your photos and design your layout everything online.. but of course must have internet connection all the time lah.. try that out~~

      aiyoh, i think it's difficult to be a secret once you stepped onto the internet platform lah.. if people really want to "yan yoke sau char" (human flesh searching), sure they can find you one.. or probably you already have a lot of "silent readers" that you are not aware of.. some may just locate you at some blogs you read leh?? :p

      Delete
    19. Eh, if we keep on doing this ahh (reply come reply go), then this thread ma become never-ending? Kekeke.. Just saying..

      Eh, I not very free la, but becoz of you, and becoz of wana see your reply, I keep coming back lor, keke.. Touched mou?

      Yep, paper cannot wrap fire la.. If people wana search me, easily they can search my name coz I’m using real name leh.. Do you know Louiz appears in my IC also.. it’s my real name la.. So actually I also dunno it’s a good thing or bad to use my real name.. But I don’t like to use nama samaran ma, previously before I choose to use my real name, I used “GlitterBee” for my blogger name.. Then think think, GlitterBee, aiii, better use back own name lor..

      Like you said there might be people I know reading my blog silently.. Maybe office colleagues are reading it timm.. Coz they can hear me tuk-tuk damn loud and long on the keyboard..

      That day ahh, I saw my colleague sneaking behind me, out of a sudden, he said “I saw what you are doing”.. I jumped from my seat and started to curse him la, I said please la,don’t walk from behind me.. Wana walk, walk in front of me.. He said he’s curious to see what I’m typing coz I always type a lot wor (must be when I’m replying your comments).. Then ahh, he terus use his smartfone to google my blog name (he saw glitter something on the website, but he didn’t see clearly glitter what).. Then I told him, tak payah harap la, no need check, die also you wont know my blog.. Wah scary..

      So now, I also dunno he knows my blog or not..

      Delete
    20. aiyoh, yalor, such a long thread!! when you comment next round, please start a new thread lah, haha!! i am sure you got many other things to say lah..

      oh, so Louiz is your real name and on your IC also ah?? like that you want to change your blog name to Princess Ribbon or not?? or maybe more powderful, Miss Jakun Glutton!! hahaha, sure your colleagues may not be able to find you lah.. but then aih, if know then know lah, we cannot help and cannot control also right?? they like to do what they sukak mah.. as long as you can face the sky and earth and your own conscience, then it's okay lah..

      Delete
    21. Hahaha......I think "jakun" is her favorite quote already...always see she write it, almost 70% of her comments have this word, so now Princess Ribbon has another nickname again?

      Last time, I've no idea how my uni's friends found my blog also...plus I never put any links and I put "fake name" as well...they're super gossip...they'll read it word by word and remember it and tell me back....Huh??? Seriously...but now I don't care anymore la...bet only one or two of friends know about my blog because they ask about it!!!

      Delete
    22. yalah, that's why maybe call her Princes Jakun is more appropriate hor, since she likes this word so much and always use it in her comments, hahahaha!!

      surely lah, once you have a blog, sure 紙包不住火 and one day people around you may find out.. anyway, nothing wrong also lah, they want to read they read, they like they continue, they don't like they quit lah.. it's your blog, then your sukak mah, right?? :)

    23. Morning.. I purposely come back in the morning see got somemore replies or not.. Wah, still got wor.. Xiao Ying comes inside as well, keke..

      Eh, not only me use this word wor.. I see SK sometimes also use this jakun word wor.. Copyright, heh...

      Eh, I'm thinking hor, should I change my blogger name to Princess Ribbon? I don't feel good using my real name liao coz that day my colleague sneaked behind me (I dunno how long), and then I saw him faster googled on his smartfone my website (he googled glitter only, but he dunno glitter what)...

      Actually, it's not a secret.. People know also I don't mind.. But just that I don't feel good coz I sometimes write about the work also kan, in my blog.. And he's one of those inside my stories.. So if he reads it, macam tak bagus kan?

      But I plan liao, on the day I resign (should that day comes), in my farewell and goodbye email, I will write as the last sentence, we shall keep in touch and my blog is xxxxx... I want them to know what I wrote about them at work, kekekeke.. But that's after I resign ma, kan..

      Anyway, I dunno what nonsense I am talking about.. Better stop the thread now, it's getting longer, and this is an old post lagi.. Better wait for SK's new post and start commenting lagi baik, kan...

      Delete
    24. You can make the blog's name as Princess Ribbon's Stories then the blogger name as Princess Jakun!!! Hahaha~~~

      Delete
    25. haha, Princess Jakun Glutton as the blogger name and the blog name is Princess Ribbon's Nonsense lah.. like that sure nobody will be able to find you already.. and then in your post, always give good nicknames to your colleague, and the day when you resign, show them your blog and have them guess who are who by the nicknames~~ :D

  12. Good day to all.

    Oh boy! These photobooks are so impressive. I want also. I think I got the free voucher last year, but I lost the code already. How sad. I deleted those emails with free voucher code from photobook. Stupid me, bad me.
    Now, I have to fork out money to buy the photobook, I want to buy 2 sets, one for April and one for May. Their birthday is next month and next next month. I will give them as their birthday presents, you think this idea good, SK?
    I know SK is a perfectionist, so whatever SK praises, must be real good. I must make my own photo book as well. SK, you are so influential.
    Anyway, thanks for sharing, SK. Yes, must thank mamarazzi too for letting us know this. She must have owned a lot of photobooks. Those are her sweet very memory of baby Joshua until kid Joshua. I must spend some time to explore how to use the design tool and template that is provided by Photobook when I free. When will I free eh!

  13. Good Morning Bloggers! The photo books are lovely and neat. I want to create these books for my old age when I might not be able to remember how to use my PC anymore. I have so much sweet memories to keep. All my bad memories, I trash and flush down my toilet bowls.

  16. I will start taking suitable photos from now onwards for my future photo books. I think it is important to plan in details to make the book fun and happy in all pages with the proper colours, skies, flowers and emotions.

    Just like my trip to Chengdu, it was the first time I took every photo with thoughts of posting them into my blogs for my readers to enjoy. It needs to be fun and happy, right? I don't want readers to sleep Zzzzzzz in my blogs, so my photos need to be loud and shocking sometimes. I will make sure I snap better photos for my coming trip on 31 March for my blogs and photobooks. I will use spy camera!! Niak! Niak! Niak!!!

    1. not only your future photos but i think you have been taking nice photos all these while right, and especially during your few previous trips.. your Chengdu trip, your Osaka trip etc all can be made into a nice photobook dei.. and yes, you are right, need to kind of plan your design a little beforehand lah.. like what i did, one book for probably one trip, and then i have small grouping sections inside according to the places i go..

      wow, your spy-camera photobook?? that must be labelled 18SX okay?? :D

    So this a good deal introduced by Cat Mamarazzi la? Wah, really sounds like a good deal! Free ar? Really so nice? Can tell you are super happy and satisfied with it! Must thank Mamarazzi lo! Go belanja her tea! Kekeke!

    1. Photobook printing has become quite popular I realize. I see a lot of my friends also developing photobook these days, especially if there's any great offer around. It's a good thing la actually, though we need space to keep the photobooks, and some we need to pay for it, but it's full with all good memories! Easier to flip through and maintain, compared to the old type album, I reckon.

      But one concern about photobook printing is the quality, like what you mentioned. After printing sure the quality dropped a bit one, lagi worse if the original copy is not clear enough. I think the theory is like when we upload photo into FB, sure quality not as good as original photo.
      But as long as still can see, quality doesn't matter la! Plus it's free wo, what else can we ask for right? ;)

    2. Hmm, let me recall, I think I had 3 photobooks so far. One is my Sydney trip photobook, this was one of my birthday present from a friend, she copied all photos from my FB's trip album and she developed them into a photobook! What a surprise for me!! She never informed me earlier about her plan, I also never thought someone will have this idea, it's indeed a very special present! But I think the reason why she would developed a photobook for me is because she was working in related field that time, her boss is running some kinda photobook business back then, so I guess she gets to design the photobook and can get staff price? Hehe!

    3. Then the second photobook is my maternity album. This is part of the package, if not mistaken total is RM 500, including this , hardcopies and a CD(softcopy), and of course the photographer's fees la! The quality is quite good I'd say, I mean of course la cause she used the high tech DSLR camera, the photos sure very clear like HD. But the photobook itself is also quite good, thick, water-proof and light! Really no complain about it!

      And the third photobook, is my family portrait, took it when Aden was one year old, thought of shooting a family portrait as memory. Also signed the same photographer, but this time more expensive, RM 800, almost the same contents, photobook, some hardcopies and a CD of softcopy.
      Speaking bout the fee, hmm being a photographer is quite untung ho? Haha xD

    4. The second and third albums are quit a good memory, cause I can show it to Aden next time. I think photobook-ing is memorable, especially if we have lots of photos to develop, like those we go oversea, or family outings etc.

      But still, I prefer to keep my photos in the laptop, save papers and printing ma! xDD

      But yours sounds like a good deal la, can see you are falling in love with photobook-ing, even ask your friends to buy together! I love the Doraemon photobook the most, so colorful! I bet it's your favorite too huh? Cause you're a big fan of Doreamon ma!!
      And you gave so high credits and compliments to the service! Hmm, you really 拾到宝 this time! So lucky la!
      As for the software you mentioned, by looking at your photo, it looks like an interesting software! Must be fun designing and playing around with it! And for you lagi no problem la, since you're good at it!

    5. So any plan this weekend SK?
      Is the haze gone at KL? If not better stay indoor la hor?
      Haze is gone here at Taiping but like I said, it's still scorching hot and stuffy. Sometimes also lazy wanna go out during day time, sure sweat like a pig one! Plus with the harmful UV rays these days, really a smart choice to just stay at home, hehe!

      Here wishing all of you a happy and fun weekend ya!! Got to resume mummy's duty!! =_=

    6. yalah, this Mama Meow very kind and generous to share lah.. everytime if got any 筍嘢 she will let me know one.. and really thank her for informing me about this free photobook, i also tell her about a lot of features of the designer software in return lah, haha!! so no need to belanja her tea lah, we 心領神會 mah~~ :D

      oh, your photobooks are those professional one lah, since you paid hundreds for them, sure must look nice else you will go and kill them, haha!! mine different lah, just pay for the RM8 delivery and do everything by myself.. good also, i choose my own photos and decide how the design goes, actually kind of nice doing that.. and when you receive the real thing, it's like your own baby, if you know what i mean.. haha!!

      nowadays camera has resolution good enough for printing lah.. most of my photos were taken using my phone, and the printing looks decent enough.. the software will warn if the resolution is not good enough, so as long as the software didn't "scold" me then everything goes fine.. of course i have to say, the color tends to be darker, so next round i must increase the brightness of the photos using the built in editor.. so far so good lah, not very expensive and it's my own artwork, so must love it mah, 給自己面子!! :D

      KL getting better these few days, worst was on Tuesday, now looks clear but of course still hot lah.. i really hope for rain kuat kuat la.. clear the haze and fill up all rivers and reservoir!! weekend going to watch movies, how about you?? same to you lah. have a fun weekend~~ :)
