1. Do you still develop your photos into hard copies? 2. Factors to consider when buying a house

1. Even though technology is very advanced these days and digital camera and digital photos are the trend now, but I still develop my photos into hard copies the traditional way. I like to see my photos in hard copies and to keep them in photo frames and photo albums. Digital photos may be lost if the hard disk drive of your computer is having problems and you may lose your digital photos overnight! So that's why I still develop photos into hard copies now. How about you?

2. The two factors I would consider when buying a house is of course the price and the location. Location is very important and it must be near to main public transport such as MRT or bus stops, and it must have facilities such as banks, post offices, markets, hair salons and supermarkets in its vicinity. Which is why I don't bear to move house up till today because my current house's neighbourhood has all these facilities within walking distance. How about you, what factors do you think is important when buying a house.

Not all photos I would develop. Mostly saved in soft copies and back up.

When buying a house, i would look at the design and location.

errrr, i don't really print hardcopies of photos now already, or i shall say since i have a digital camera, haha!! will just keep them in the camera, store them in my PC and also backup a copy in CDs.. guess i do not want to keep the printed copies - it's money to print and also takes up space :)

oh, of course price and location are important and i guess these are the two factors i will look into first.. and then whether it's convenient, the facilities, the management, the developer etc etc.. it's not going to supermarket to buy vegetable, it's buying a house, so deep thoughts and analysis are necessary :)

Rose: I also don't develop all my photos, just selective few.

I have stopped printing hard copy photos for a long time now. Recently I saw many ads in Groupons for "Photo Book" services and I thought it would be nice to select all the nice photos of my travels and compile them to this photo book for old age. When I am very old, I might be too frail to find the soft copies to view in computer.

TM: I suddenly have this idea after reading your comment, sekali, after we get old, we have to turn on the computer with our shaky old hands and search for the soft copies, muahahaha. Cannot imagine that!

TM: Photo Book is a nice idea.
