UTOPIA: Selfie

Selfie

I read in amusement of this recent news regarding selfie. Well, being a Samsung phone owner, i wouldn't deny that i did take a selfie test on my mobile when i first use it.
Anyhow i m not goin to comment or blog about this petty issue, but instead showing some of my selfie attempts which i took sometime ago with my Samsung phone cam - *yea, this is a very exclusive post as i never publish them before, not even in FB nor instagram!
OK, let's feast ur eye with my amateur selfies...
that was the first selfie I took with the Samsung phone where I applied the 'pastel' effect out of curiousity....
after this fugly one, i dump aside my Samsung phone and decided to use back my good ol' HTC phone while it is still 'alive'. I dun usually take selfie with my HTC unless necessary.
So, what might be the 'necessary'?
Somehow, i have stop taking selfie ever since i took that fugly one with my Samsung phone (it was 2 years back!) and it never cross my mind that i would 'revive' my ol' HTC to perform the same. But that was this one occasion early this year where i was waiting for my colleagues doing their shoppings. We were in a tiny souvenir shop in Avani Sepang, and it was after our teambuilding activites in the late noon with my after-lunch-effects immediately kicks in. I was so sleepy that i could immediately doze off anytime, but unfortunately the rooms can only be ready for check-in at 3. I ain't shopaholic & to keep myself awake, i occupied myself with the good ol' phone cam and start posing with sunglasses, hats, and scarfs. So, here it goes:
My good ol' HTC did a good job despite being around for half a decade! *my right hand was holding the price tag in this pic
Well, too bad that phone already 'dead' for 5 months now....
During its earlier days, it did a tremendous great job with selfie taking....especially with this black & white photo which i took in the hotel washroom!
I look much younger...coz that was ahemmmm!.....half a decade ago.

You are a pro at taking selfie when compared to me. I still own the old type of hp that is not a smart phone so I can't take selfies.

I like your black and white selfie - very stylishly taken. :)

Half a decade ago is not too long. I felt like only last week I came to Penang to work, and it's been 8 years. 8 years! OMG!

Me too! I don't take selfies, the only time I take photos is when I'm eating with my better half, then we'll take a photo of us. I do occasionally take photos when I'm travelling though but not selfie style, I'll get someone to take a photo of me normally. I don't like the selfie angle as you can't get much of the background into the picture.

Oh ya, I think this is the first time we've seen your photo too.

Mun: u can still take the selfie using ur old type hp..unless if ur hp doesn't hav camera function...

RealGunners: 8 years is long..for a hp life and for the youthfulness to last. My comparison depends on the subject, not experiences, haha!

Hayley: yea, kids can do it better too! btw, this is not the first time I post my photo here....just that I seldom post oni...

Huai Bin: my selfie is normally the reflection from the mirror...coz if I m to use the conventional way, the angle will look weird and the head covering most of the background.
