ta-da!

i love surprises! well, the good kind anyway.

this afternoon, i went to Megamall to get a haircut and to have my two rolls of film from my recent Avilon trip developed. for some reason, i suddenly recalled what my friend told me before - that Fuji developing centers can actually scan a roll of film and save the photos in a cd. initially, i had a feeling they didn't accept Advantix films. but today i was feeling optimistic.

so before getting my long overdue haircut, i headed for Fuji developing center and asked them if they accepted Advantix films. i held my breath as i waited for the lady's reply. she said...yes! woopee! i wanted to scream at the top of my lungs. instead, i reached for the two rolls and calmly told her, "Miss, pa-scan." [hehe]

and the best surprise was, they charge 145 pesos per roll. it doesn't matter if my film has 12 shots or 40 shots. it's the same price. what a great deal! too bad i didn't know that before i bought the films or i would've gotten the 40 shots instead of 2 rolls of 25 shots. but, that's ok. at least now i know.

i am so giddy just thinking about how much i could save by having my negatives scanned instead of having them developed. ahh, i really love surprises.

you can look at the scanned photos
here. too bad some of the photos are blurred. i'm still getting the hang of my camera's close-up function. anways, if you see pictures with a hazy animal, you can always appreciate the background. hehe. ^_~
