Hairy balls

Hmm….does hair grow on balls, ma?


Terence/JT, can you answer that? I am not sure. Well, at least I didn’t do enough experiments and dissection to know that.


Actually, I have a lot of things to do but I am too stressed out, thinking about them so I didn’t do anything! So, I took out some kiwi fruits and cut them and take pictures with my Nikon micro lens that costed me RM2.6K. The lens that is soooooo under utilised because I found out that it is not easy to take macro shots with a DSLR micro lens. It is nothing like those point and shoot camera where you just switch to the ‘tulip’ button and thiak, thiak, thiak.


See? It is hard to focus. So, I need to use manual focus. But one of my hand has to hold the cut fruit so I cannot focus as I need both hands. What I did was to shift the distance of the kiwi fruit from my camera lens to make the image sharp. *roll eyes* I know I should use a tripod but I was too lazy to do so. Moreover, how am I going to suspend the cut fruit in midair?

Then, I have to finish two kiwifruits after taking the photos. My eldest son saw me crouching by the window (to get ample light), on the floor with two kiwifruits, a sharp knife and a camera and he told his other brother, “Man, your ma is playing with two hairy balls.”

So, back to my question. Does hair grown on balls? Laugh what laugh? Serious question, wei.

  7. JT – Thank you, Sir JT! I guess you must have examined many, many to be able to answer hor?

    Tan Silly – Digi dun have lah. Mummy Helen got lah. You want Cambodian, China, Vietnamese or exotic Eastern European?

    kew – It better be ‘cos the lens is more expensive than my camera body. I never really play around with the macro lens though. Cos I must mount on tripod or else the photo cannot be sharp as I need to make the aperture big number.

    momo – That time I loaded when I was making lots of money online, so can afford. Now, pok kai liao so buy one oven also must think for two weeks. I think US are cutting down on advertising budget so less income for us lately. Also, I don’t do so much online work liao.

    Tan silly – People ask question, answer yes or no only lah! Tiu.

    Kak Teh – I got the tools but don’t have the skill. LOL.

  8. Yes and No.

  9. I don’t think hair grows on balls. I think balls throw on hair. Hence, the expression,’Hanging by the balls.” Seriously. Hehehehe…it has been a tense week. Cheer.

  10. Oooops…lots of typo mistakes lately. It’s ‘grow’ and not ‘throw’. Thks.

  11. Ayooo..not on ball only lah..! even the Ass longkang also have!! Hahahahhaha!! (Opss!! I’m not myself today)

  13. I was like half worn off in the afternoon and while waiting for my teatime, I look through this post of yours…at the way your son commented to each other… I started to laugh to myself.

    Gua mesti destress too… Playing with my DSLR also but no $$$ for macro lens yet. You’re right, taking macro photos on DSLR manyak susah. I keep looking for the “tulip” option but doesn’t work so well-le. 😛

  16. Lilian, depends on which direction your are looking from. Front or back?

  17. Hi Lilian,

    i think your two macro shots a little over-flashed – tried doing it without flash? it could be nicer, or perhaps try one with bouncer, so that the light is not so harsh.
