Call me old-fashioned but despite having a digital calendar on my smartphone, I still use use my trusty Moleskines to refer to past trips and also for those random notes I jot down on the road.

I recently got my new 18-months Weekly Notebook/Diary Moleskine, and having used these legendary notebook for years already, it’s a delightful surprise to see that they now added those fine looking icon stickers to label the pages. The graphical icons were really neatly designed. I guess with so many imitator and competitors now for that handy notebook they need to add something new. And I liked it!

Digital Cameras, especially DSLRs is one piece of expensive equipment we tend to carry around more often. It would be a nightmare if I loose my camera when some street thieves would slash through my strap and run off with my camera on a motorbike or loose my camera from fall from weak strap connectors. I know the chances are slim but I actually know people who experienced this horror stories so I’m a bit paranoid with my gears. I also don’t like using my default camera strap since I don’t like the brand name screaming (not that I didn’t love the brand) on it and I just didn’t find them comfortable in the long run especially if you have a heavy camera. It’s a good thing there are third party camera straps available from manufacturers like Crumpler, Kata and Tamrac, OP/Tech but my favorite among them is PacSafe’s CarrySafe 100 strap.
