Olympus Pen Lite E-PL3 Camera

Ever since I switched to my (perhaps “invested is the most appropriate term to use given the astronomical price tag) behemoth monster of a camera (Canon 5D Mark 2), I must say I’ve become very suspicious of portable, tiny ‘point and shoot’ cameras. The quality isn’t the same, you know?

Olympus Japan recently gifted me one of their Olympus Pen cameras (Olympus Pen Lite E-PL3 to be specific) and I must say I’m very impressed by it. There are times when I don’t want to bring my ultra heavy camera with me, especially when I’m going out at night. Nothing screams “FASHION BLOGGER” more than someone in designer clothes with a huge camera dangling from his/her/shim’s arm. The Olypus Pen Lite is tiny, compact and very discreet. It’s the perfect camera to bring when you want to document private memories.

Return To Sender

21/10/2011, Advertorials, Moscow

This month, I’m celebrating seven years of my site, Bryanboy.com. Has it really been THAT long? Internet years are like gay relationship years. And gay relationship years are like dog years; one year = seven years. Hah! As most of you guys know, I started my blog in October 2004 as a travel journal. Three years short of a decade later, I’m back to where it all began: Moscow.

Sunset sky in Moscow, Russia

I took a number of photos during the long ride from the airport yesterday afternoon. Photographer friends tell me the best time to take photos is an hour before sunset because of the light. They call it the ‘golden hour’. Looks like I missed it by a few minutes.

11/09/2011, Advertorials

A lot of you my dearest readers play with clothes and accessories each day. Just like you and me, my favorite soft drink, Diet Coke, gets to do the same. The folks over at Coca-Cola recently redesigned Diet Coke’s look.

Bryanboy for JNBY Soho, New York Store

29/09/2010, Advertorials, Current Affairs, New York City

JNBY Soho, New York Store

When I went to NYC a few weeks ago, I discovered a brand called JNBY (aka Just Naturally Be Yourself. I've heard of this brand from friends quite awhile back (and of course, the NY Times) but I never really had the chance to visit. They recently approached me to document a mini-shopping trip while I pick some of my favourite pieces at the store. Check it out.

JNBY is located at:

75 Greene St.
New York, NY 10012

Cocktail O’Clock

Cocktail O’Clock

Here’s something for the ladies (gents and gentle gays) out there.

Sometimes (as long as you’re of legal drinking age), a little bit of vodka doesn’t hurt after a long hard day’s of work.

Click HERE to view some of my favourite cocktail recipes.

It’s 2:05AM in Milan. Gotta wake up early for tomorrow morning’s Moschino show. Anna Dello Russo is styling it!
