Broken Camera Lens Motor?

I'm writing this post about my Nikon DX AF-S Nikkor 18-135mm 1:3.5-5.6G ED lens.

I woke up one day wanting to take a picture of my room, but the camera didn't want to auto-focus, it would just focus back and forth and back and forth.

Now I tried taking the lens out and reattaching again, didn't work.
I tried cleaning the contacts, didn't work.
I tried removing the filter, didn't work.

One thing that I haven't tried is using a different lens.

It does focus an object when the zoom is set to 18mm but it would sometimes come out blurry.

Even in 135mm, on a sunny day, it would have a hard time trying to focus an object and if it does, the image isn't entirely in focus. (Check video and image link)

I suggest watching the video with earphones to hear the motor trying to auto-focus.

Fuji Ichiban

Last night, we went to Fuji Ichiban for dinner. I had no idea what to order, so I asked my sister what should I eat, and she told me to eat the tonkotsu.

Free Facebook on Globe Tattoo

I made a discovery the other night with Globe Tattoo.

I disconnected from my router's connection.
Plugged in the Globe Tattoo to the USB port.
Connected to the internet with zero balance.
Went to
Clicked on "Check your Facebook status"

Then I was amazed that it led me to the Facebook Mobile status page. I updated my status just to see if it was free, lo and behold it updated. I tried visiting other people's profile, still worked. Then it stopped when I logged out.

Okay, from my understanding, while connected on the internet, log into your Facebook account, checkmark the "Keep me logged in" box and DO NOT log out. That's it!

Anytime you connect to the internet with your Globe Tattoo (with zero balance), just go to: and if you're already logged in, then it worked! If not, then I guess, you load up your Globe Tattoo and connect to Facebook Mobile and don't log out.

I only tried this on my laptop.

Gundam kits at the Mall Of Asia 2

These kits were on display at the SM Department Store at the Mall of Asia.

The MG Wing Gundam is so small compared to the 1/100 Arios Gundam.

Here's an unresized picture of the PG 00 Raiser box art, without watermark too.

Gundam kits at the Mall Of Asia

Took some pics of the Gundam kits at Toy Kingdom at the Mall of Asia.

Shiny Ononokuso


If you're not familiar with this Pokemon, it's #612 of the Isshu Dex (Unova for english) of Pokemon Black and White. I recolored the original image, which I can not find, to make it look shiny. Which by the way is awesome looking.

Boracay Island

A picture of Boracay Island I took while on a flight from Manila to Iloilo back in October. The dust on my camera's sensor is very visible.

Nikon D40 w/ AF-S Nikkor 18-135mm

This is my camera gear. Thanks to my brother for giving me his lens, swapped it with the 18-55mm kitlens. It does not have VR though. I like the lens a lot, but my brother has a Sigma lens 70-300mm for his Nikon D60, which is amazing cuz it auto focuses really fast.

Oh I have the CPL stacked over the UV filter, which is kinda stupid thing to do. :P
