Why my phone no camera?

It is getting very annoying not having a camera.

I didn’t get to photograph the cutest pair of two-day-old kittens when the director brought them to the set of a short film I was acting in.

Can you believe not a single person in the entire crew and cast had a camera? Totally insane. I would think everyone these days would at least have a mobile phone that has a camera feature.

Here I have been thinking I’m the only caveman still carrying a prehistoric Nokia 6100.

So far, two people have laughed my phone in its face for being so ancient. Like, it’s not its fault, ok? I just never had any compelling reason to get rid of it since it’s still working very finely.

But I must say it’s getting more and more embarrassing to be around when it rings because the ring tone capability is so last millennium.

Thankfully, my phone is on silent mode most of the time because my job requires me to not have it ring when I’m working.

Can you imagine at a film set…

Director: Alright, everyone clear? Roll camera!

Cameraman: Camera rolling.

Director: And….. action!

Actor: (Stares lovingly into my eyes) Please forgive me. I love you. It was a…

Nokia 6100: Ti ta di loooo! Da da da ti ta di laaaaA! Dee dee dee doo la dee dee doo la dee dee ti ta di loooo! (Repeat x 2)

Director: What the hell.



Sound guy: Hahaha! The ring tone is so last millennium!

That would be reason for me to disappear into a hole in the ground and grounds for me to disown my phone right away.

So, anyway, I am sad that I don’t have a picture of the kittens. They were so young their eyes weren’t open yet. AND SO ADORABLE! I didn’t even recognise them as kittens at first. They were just balls of fur.

I think it is time to upgrade my phone and buy a camera-enabled one. I refuse to miss another chance to photograph two-day-old kittens. It’s not like you get to see them every day of your life, is it?

The only photo I got out of the shoot is this.

That’s me and my co-star and the makeup artist on the right. The camera used to take this picture belongs to the makeup artist who, most inconveniently, was not there when the kittens were brought in.

Not that I can blame anyone but myself.

Oh, well.

    HaLLoweeN: Nobody laugh at your phone? Not fair. I need to have a word with my friends…

    Wind: Thanks :P lol, yeah been really busy.

    aberwyn: The kittens were apparently abandoned by their mother. My director found them in his garden and monitored them for 2 days and never saw the mother, so his maid’s been feeding them.

    I’m using the same phone as you. Nobody laughs at it. Maybe because I still use it to CONNECT with people very very tangibly when the need arises.

    I love durability in my phone models. Don’t even let me wax lyrical on the 3310.

    i have a trusty 6100 which until recently has been a much loyal servant than the maid & unlike the latter, NEVER complains!

    i have learned to live without a camera phone & is none the worse for it. it’s just a mindset thing that everyone must have the latest innovations.

    live & let live.

    Vandalin/Starlandliu: Like I mentioned before… must be my friends lah. I felt perfectly happy with my phone until they started to laugh at it. >.< Halloween: That old phone give girls good impression?? That's interesting. :P I can't say that my phone attracts the dudes, though. doc: For me, a camera is more for the purpose of having pictures to illustrate my blogs. Part of the reason I have stopped blogging regularly is I find it boring to blog without pictures. People who know me will tell you that I enjoy making stories out of pictures. So, without a camera, half my inspiration to blog has gone. Also, I think many people also find it "harder" to read blogs that are just all text. Don't you think?

    No problem with the phone mah. I had watched Rush Hour 2’s NG scenes (at the end of the show) and Chris Rock didn’t turn off his phone, much to the chagrin of Jacky Chan. Chris then even asked the fella on the other side of the line if he wanted to talk to Jacky! Heh. Makes for great NG shots

    At least it isn’t a HUGE BIG BLOCK phone full of HUGE chip cards they had in the 1975s which is really considered Pre-historical ancient communication devices >.<
