    Quite correct Chris. That is one of the older sisters.

    ahh, Fidget, I also pulled this baby out into the world. My obstetrician was very cool and everything had been going very smoothly. Cutting the cord is nothing compared to delivering the baby! Of course, I have delivered babies myself in the past but those were other people's.

    Three is a magic number.:) (can my boys call your girls in 20 years?)

    Congrats on delivering your own (but more congrats to your wife).
    The fear of two words explains why I never dreamed of delivering mine: Shoulder dystocia.:eek:

    The head and first shoulder was delivered by the obstetrician so I got the easy part.

    Trip to Durian's orchard.

    My friend invited me to his 'king of fruits' farm recently. Woke up early in the morning and went on a journey to his durian orchard in Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia. It took an hour thru a winding road to reach the destination. The photos attached are in sequence. He is using the small hut for sleeping and taking care of his prized durians during the harvest. His enemy is squirrel. He will let out fire cracker to frighten the animals.

    At 7am he will start collecting durians that drop on the grass. An hour later after collecting his crop he will sell it to 'Trader' that in turn will sell to other part of Malaysia. One trader export his durians to as far as Singapore. In a good day my friend can sell 3-4 basket full of durians.

    On our way back I took a beautiful scenery of a Langat Dam, and monkeys enjoying papaya feed by a monkey-loving lorry driver.

    My old (2 years) Panasonic FZ18.

    Looked at the review and found out that LX3 has better image than FZ18. LX3 look sharper or my focus skill suck. Marky can you try to capture using ISO 3200-6400, and post the result. Using ISO800 and above in FZ18 is not acceptable for me.

    Image info:
    5mm
    ISO-100
    F/3.6
    1/20 sec

    ok, will do later.

    one thing that, LX3 can manually focus. This has been mannually focused on the cartoon character by me. When manually focusing in such a close distance, LX3 even zoom in the image for your ease of accuracy.

    Guess which?

    OK! It's time to play a game!
    Guess what lens, brand, focal length that I used for taking that photo? And also the shooting distance!:D

    ^^Thank goodness..^^

    ..you're not asking for:
    - what aperture (if it has variable aperture)?
    - what shutter speed?
    ;)
    ..i have a feeling we'll see several posts for this...startiiiing..NOW!!:p
    My only guess: Canon 100mm f/2.8 and you were sitting down, on the grass, enjoying the sunshine, with your legs crossed and just a few feet away..:cool:
