Kota Kinabalu Trip 22-26 April 2009

Still very exhausted from the trip.
Will write more about the trip over the weekend.

Golden Line
Take nothing but photographs, leaving nothing but footprints.
This is the "tag line" for KK park - you'll see this everywhere, even at Laban Rata.

Emotionally unstable.

Go away.

Q: How do you know when someone blocks you in Facebook?
A: When you see your friends responding to his comment while you don't see any of his comments showing up.

Q: What kinda jerk would block people in Facebook?
A: I have no idea...

Q: Why?
A: Perhaps he couldn't stand to share the "airtime" with you, even if it's just commenting on friend's status in Facebook. He just couldn't stand to see your name and picture (perhaps the display picture is too happy).

After more than 2 years, what is the problem with him? Perhaps somebody should teach him what is "forgive and forget".

(You know whom I'm talking about.)

Mount K

It's a shame to admit - but I'm actually getting more and more nervous. 8 days to the hike. I almost fainted after 3.5 rounds of Batu Caves last weekend. I slipped and fell flat on the floor during shower on Sunday - and now my right arm aches. I have rashes on my legs cause I'm allergic to the Salonpas plaster. I'm no where near to "fit" and my confidence was flushed away in the toilet bowl.

This "vacation" is making me tensed, and tired.

Can I even make it to Laban Rata?

*What kinda vacation is this...*

What is love? The "electricuting" feeling when you see a girl? Or the racing heartbeat when you see a guy?

We all know that these adrenaline rush will not last you forever - what's left between a man and woman when the excitement fades?

What do you do when you realize that the feeling has fade away? When you stop missing her when you're outstation? Do you give up? Or do you accept that the relationship is evolving but not ending?

As long as you're happy... my friend... as long as you're happy...

Note: It's my friend who's having a crisis - I'm just his faithful listener.

I thought I know what I want, but when I'm really arriving at the juncture, I suddenly realized that I was not as decisive as I thought I would be.

I think I know what I want, but I don't wanna force him into something that he (or we) is not ready for.

This tug-of-war in my head is making me restless. I try my best not to think about it but I find it harder to sleep at night.

I need... we need... a breakthrough...

DCIM 2009 @ Midvalley - 28 March 2009

DCIM stands for Digital Camera.Imaging.Media.
It was a photography expo, while right next door to it there was a bridal fair.
Actually in conjunction with the expo, there was also a "Velocity Angel" search (some model competition) - which means... lots of Lengluis to shoot =P
But too bad all my shots turned out to be blur, cause I basically took the shots by holding my camera up high and just kept pressing the shutter non-stop (skill-less shots).

But luckily a few of the bridal gown shots can be salvaged...
Same "skill-less" shooting mode was used, it was by luck that I managed to get these...

Trying Out My New 50mm f1.8

Bought this new lens right before the official price hike of Canon products =P
So took some trial shots at home...

Muar - 7-9 March 2009

Some pictures taken at Jwee's jogging place along the Muar River.
The river itself was not a very interesting shooting object - but with some people doing their routing activities such as fishing, I was lucky to get at least a few interesting shots.

P/S: perhaps by now you would have realized that I went to Putrajaya, Melaka and Muar within a weekend =P That's why I took me to so long to process the pictures.

Melaka - 8th March 2009

Went to Melaka with Jwee's siblings - it was half an hour drive from Muar.

To me, Melaka = historical town. That is why most of the pictures are post-processed with traces of "nostalgia".

Some cute stuff that I found in the food court =)
(I did not edit these pictures - they are original shots taken from a food court wall!)


And the Shin Chan Potato =)

Paya Indah Wetland - 7th March 2009

It was a photography outing cum picnic with Chia and Andy's family.
The park was very quiet, in fact most of the infrastructures are not fully operational.
Nevertheless we had a chance to get up-close and personal with...

...Water Duck...

And last but not least... our Model of the Day...
