Last year, I bought a hand held monopod, which is a gadget you attach to your camera to allow you to kind of extend your arm and take a shot of yourself using the timer function. Think tripod but with one leg, hence the name. Since then, life has never been the same. Okay, I exaggerate, let me rephrase that – selfies have never been the same.

But life hasn’t been the same too, actually, because whenever I take it out, complete strangers approach me to ask where I bought it. Can’t blame them. It really is a very nifty gadget and is my favorite camera accessory ever. I mean, how else can you take pictures of everyone in the group without having to ask some stranger to do it? You can use your hands, sure, but that would only show your very close up faces without the nice background, and sometimes, you want the background. It’s also perfect for solo wanderers.
Here are some of the best photos I have taken using it. You can click on the captions to check out the blog posts where I originally used the pictures.

|Farewell lunch for Nantoy|
|A solo luxury movie experience|
|Ocean Park Hong Kong vacation with my family|
|Girls night out at the Peninsula hotel|
|Reunion and birthday party @ Barcino, The Fort|
And oh yeah, the photo I use for my blog button (over there on my sidebar) was taken with it too.
