Kenny Rogers @ Maju Junction

Before you scream and say "what!".. Let me say this was not a on-purpose review..rather it was an incidental one as *drums roll*..this is the first review with my new baby!.. After being squeezed high and dry from the shop, i walked away with a camera tucked in my new bag..poor and rather in debt because i could only press so much cash out from an atm before i get robbed..so with a RM100 in debt thanks to a friend of mine, eventhough he was one of the reasons why i was put into this place..he asked still want to eat lunch ar?.. So i thought why not? Since i had 20 bucks left, we approached Kenny Rogers and i told myself..may the photos begin..


Starting off with muffins..i guess what my friends tell me is true..two pieces makes the food ugly..but anyhow this is the kind of effect that i was seriously looking for in my pictures..back to food..Kenny Rogers has come a long way from the original muffin..because they come in chocolate and vanilla..what are they thinking off when they expanded from a savoury muffin to a sweet muffin??

The Quarter Chicken with 3 sides..I wanted a half chicken until i saw the exorbitant price..that price could get me close to 2 and the half chickens in a super market..roasted..just without the gravy..Nothing much as changed really..but the taste seemed abit off and the servings of the sides, smaller..

Back to the camera, any tips from now is greatly needed..like how to take a perfect scrumptious photo, what kind of ISO to use..eventhough i have been using ISO 1600 mode and have been fidgeting with some of the modes..but strictly no preset modes..the stupid flash keeps popping up..anyone who would want to teach me the Custom White Balance would also be thanked greatly..i cant understand the manual and the meaning of a 18% gray paper..

Till Then..Finishing off with a just ok 7 out of 10 rating for Kenny Rogers (halal before i forget like my prior posts) and just about available in any big shopping complex in Malaysia..

boo_licious said...

Yup, practice makes perfect so you can start experimenting with everything in sight.

Kok said...

joe,
I better save more for cam. It seems like there's an offset. Buy cam, no food. Buy food, no cam. :P

AngryYoungChild said...

I must say, when i was a kid. Still am! XD Kenny Rogers use to taste so good and the portion was much bigger. Personally think their standard has dropped. =(

But pics looking good so far thou. XP All da best playing with it! How much did the whole camera cost ya anyways?

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

horny angmoh: im waiting for ur "new" baby also..hahaha...

boo: i just got a lesson on white balance..gonna faint soon..will try to snap at anything on sight..

kok: hahah unless u r very dedicated i think u shud get back a normal digicam..i just realised what kind of financial burden i stepped into haha..

ayc: yeah i think its too commercialised d..

the camera set is 2599 wif lense and memory card..then u got ur bag..a protector for ur viewer..a magnifying lense to do some macro shots..another lense which i used for the abv pics..cost me RM3080..

J.T. said...

I see Kenny Rogers have progressed - more muffins! :)
Exactly, what is the price for half a chicken with 3 sides? It has been awhile since I ate at Kenny Rogers' restaurant - say 9 years.

zewt said...

i can take a LRT and then meet u there one day for lunch hehe!

Kok said...

joe,
yea, I also think like that. Better get a compact digital cam and then I don't need to spend more on accessories (lenses and all that). :P

tigerfish said...

I prefer their corn muffin - classic!
Hmmm, I think they were thinkin of a full set meal including dessert muffin! Wahahah!

wmw said...

Practice! Take an object and fiddle with the settings...take a shot, change settings...take another shot, change settings...that's what you can do to learn more about your new baby. You can then settle on one fave setting...

Coketai said...
