Photo Hunt 6: Hobby

PSHunt

I'm going to share some of my hobbies - computers, point-and-shoot kind of photography, reading and cooking. This first photo is taken at my classmate's office. I have been wanting to use this stock photo. I just find the colors nice. Anwyay, it's at their pantry. We were trying to finish our group presentation last term. As you can see the table is a mess with all the books and hand-outs we were browsing on. But that's not the hobby I am talking about. The laptops actually gives the connection for this week's theme. I love computers, I love tinkering with it - hardware and software. I'm proud to say this is all through self-learning. I ask my IT friends and my husband but mostly, I am brave enough to 'play' with our computers on my own. :) Luckily, they're still all in one piece and functioning well. I have a lot to learn I know but that's what makes it exciting for me. Learning and applying what I've learned successfully.


It's a hobby also to take pictures, that's very obvious. Pictures of just about anything but here are three of my favorite subjects - sunrise, the sea, food (just take a peek at my previous entry). One of my family's favorite activities is going out of town and it's imperative that I take snapshots of the places we go to for my collection. :)



Reading is a hobby since I was a child. Haruki Murakami is one of my all-time favorite authors as a grown-up.


Baking is a hobby and preparing pasta but more than these two, I love preparing seafoods especially shrimps. My specialty is shrimps marinated in orange soda. The preparation is very simple but it tastes really good.



Happy photo hunting everyone! :)

I can imagine you have problems to choose "the best" among all these hobbies and activities. I can't help you...
... but What do you think will last longest.

Hi Lynn. Sorry for my late visit. I've been a little busy this past weekend.

Thanks for sharing these interesting photos. How nice that you love tinkering with your computers. I don't know much about hardware and software. I miss my husband's cousin who always helped me fix my computer problems. He left for the States just recently but glad I could still consult him with some computer questions from time to time.

I also love taking photos. I have upgraded my computer's memory to give space to my increasing photos - mostly pictures of my son. :)

I love shrimps. Yummy!

Anyway, have a great week ahead.

Thanks to all those who visited. I wasn't able to go to most of the photo hunters' site because I was full last weekend.

RACHEL: Please ensure that you back up your pictures. Just to be safe. Nakakaiyak to lose hundreds of pictures if something goes wrong with your pc. One time my laptop went so slow. It needed reformatting. Good thing I was able to save pa all the pictures. But the second time, a few pictures, maybe 30, went down the drain. That's why I always back them up now.
