The salesman in the shop in Sim Lim Singapore told me to wave my hands around and so I did and so I purchased a Toshiba PDR M4 digital camera. With a 32MB memory card and an extra battery it cost 1000 Singapore dollars. Be careful with the salesmen in Sim Lim Singapore. They are very sharp unlike their cameras. Only the selection is good. If you are a good shopper, make only your selection in Singapore and shop anywhere else like Kuala Lumpur or Bangkok, both of which have cheaper prices but a smaller selection and much local knowledge is required to find good places such as Panthip Plaza Bangkok. It is not a bad little digital camera. It would benefit from a decent lens to give the photos more depth and clarity. It is now 4 years on since the owner has used it to take most of the photos on this web site. The price of the PDR M4 has dropped from 1000 Singapore dollars to 150 US dollars. The picture quality is good but not as good and foolproof as it should be. It has two automatic systems to adjust the focal length and the stop. It does seem to get the stop wrong quite often with an overemphasis on blue. Dark photos are common and the user needs to use a lot of manual features and over-rides to get good results. A much better buy is the Cannon Ixus series or if you can afford it Sony of course. Sony is the best every time.

Bob Dylan and Julie, son and mother. Julie is an unmarried mother, who worked as a cleaner at Goh homestay.
Every day she must bring Dylan in to work because she has nobody to care for him.
He always behaves badly and so she will lose her job.
Worse than that Dylan knows that he is a problem.
