Funfair 3

Another ride; a thrill for those who are in it, a display of lights and colours for the rest.

Funfair 2

The Funfair series was taken using my bro's camera, Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 which I was not familiar with at all. Didn't spend enough time playing around with the features in time for my visit to the funfair. I still love my little LZ3.

Funfair 1

Guys, ever wished that you could win that big teddy bear for your girlfriends? Lots of patience and plenty of tokens might do the trick.

Christmas Deco?

These were coiled around the area of a condo wall and trees. To keep intruders at bay with its sharp blades. I, however, found it quite pretty. Deadly beauty I guess.....

Little Man

I couldn't resist taking a photo of this "little man". Here he is, this little man, sitting in an oversized chair, reading an oversized book and wearing an oversized cap.

x 6

Still in Ikea, reflective objects always draw my interest. As if I wasn't big enough, there's six of me!

Friday, December 08, 2006


Caught these seats piled up in Ikea on a pallet. They were an interesting circular bunch.

Huff Puff

Here's another one of my fave kids (in my vocab, my fave kids would be well behaved ones!) RY, who's one of Czar's kids, having some fun at A&W. Czar's kids are so well behaved and also very helpful. I asked Czar if I could adopt them! Ha ha ha....I wanna pinch those puffed up cheeks of his! I like the lighting reflection on the balloon too.

In The Line Of Duty

I was sitting in the passenger seat of my friend's car when I caught sight of this policeman doing his job. The cars that was driving past him seems awfully close. It's a dangerous job but I guess someone has got to do it.

United Colours of Slippers

These colourful slippers on sale added more festivity into the air of the pasar malam. Cheap, only RM10/pair.

Wednesday, November 29, 2006


Taken at SS2, Pasar Malam again. Initially, I like this shot as all the people seemed to be just interested in the fishes. Then, I laughed at the light bulb position above the people's heads as it came across as a cartoon - when someone gets an idea and the light bulb comes on! Ha ha ha...but they all probably had the same idea, "Ah, I'll have fish for dinner tonight!"

Man U vs Chelsea Along With Spiderman

I'll be posting several shots from pasar malams (night market) which held once a week in certain housing areas. This is from SS2 on Mondays. It's a place full of colours and buzzing with activities.

Here are the M Twins...... it took about half a year before I could tell them apart.

The One That Didn't Get Away

It was Czar's first attempt and she managed to have the biggest catch of the day (compared to the rest of us that is). Not bad, for the fact that only sweet bread was used as the bait!. Lake Edge, Puchong is a gated community. One of YTL's housing projects. Lovely place.

Tuesday, November 21, 2006


This is at Lake Edge in Puchong. Lots of fishes first attempt at a silhouette shot.

Another rainy day here. It's raining so often that work such as this can't be put off. It rained for almost 5 hours that day! That's a lot of manhour lost!

Friday, November 17, 2006


It has been raining everyday. I love rain, especially when I'm turning in for the night. However, raining during peak hours and being caught in a city traffic jam is not something I like to put myself through. LOL....My friend was driving and I decided to take this shot through the windscreen of the car with a macro shot focusing on the raindrops (Time:4.43pm). Photo Tip from TV Smith. I hope to take better pictures of this style in future as I like it.

Bridge Over Water

After getting a shot of the pedestrian bridge on level land earlier, I went down the slope to get this shot.

No Business

With the dark clouds and the impending rain, the boats can't set sail. Would have loved to take a cruise out for more photos!

FYI : I'll be going for a minor eye operation later I was told in layman's term that they will be removing a sponge from my right eye. I had an operation end May this year due to retina detachment. The sponge was put into my eye to aid the healing of the retina. Thank goodness the retina is healed but the sponge has somewhat dislodged and now has to be taken out. If the retina was still not back in place, I would have had to undergo major eye surgery again! Well, it's okay, if some of you are wondering how come I can still blog all this while, I do touch typing and only look at the monitor to spell check and do links. Hope to be able to post soon...depending on doctor's advice. But anyway, I guess I'll just be doing even more touch typing for the next week or so. See you all soon...

3 in 1

This was an attempt for me to get a shot of water, lines and scenery, all in one shot! LOL ! Talk about being ambitious! I know I still have a long way to go!

Arabian Nights in Putrajaya

I didn't realise the colours for this shot will turn out to be like this. The mosque and the surrounding domes looked like a dream shot. It can pass off as a scene from Arabian Nights, only the buildings on the right brought me back to reality. I like the sky too....

Tuesday, November 07, 2006

Destiny Awaits

Still in Putrajaya, the path on this pedestrian bridge looks gloom as the dark sky looms above. Destiny awaits on the other end.

Sunday, November 05, 2006


I went into the Botanical Garden of Putrajaya and came across this serene looking place. I think it's called Istana Diraja. I stood with my legs apart in the middle of the little drain that runs through the place to get this shot.

Ready To Strike

Against the dark sky, the Seri Wawasan Bridge in Putrajaya looks pretty menacing, like some skeletal snake like monster about to strike!

Taking Photo Taking Two

The other shot of Ming taking photos. I noticed this shot is slighted tilted to the right, would have been better straight. Photography enthusiasts do all sort of things to get a shot right and laying down on the ground like this is a trivial thing to do in their books!

Sunday, October 29, 2006

Taking Photo Taking

I was out with Lyn and her son, Ming in Putrajaya for some photo taking a few days ago. In this pic, Ming sat right in the middle (definitely a no-no in the streets of Kuala Lumpur but somewhat okay here) of the road to take a pic. I was behind him and decided to take this pic of him. Our photoshoot ended early as it started raining not long after those dark skies appeared.

Optical Illusion

This is the corridor on one of KL Hilton floors. I never noticed till then that hotel corridors have some sort of an optical illusion!

Chillin' Over The Holidays

The long holidays gave us a chance to slow down and get some rest & relaxation. Taken at Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur, Lobby Lounge which is one of my fave place to unwind. The URB band playing here for the next 6 months is really good too.
Mode: Normal
Exposure:1 second

Candlelight Two

Was going through my album and came across this photo that was taken during the Mid Autumn Festival party at Czar's place. I had earlier posted another pic from that party under "Candlelight". In this shot, there's three kids now and they looked cute, enjoying themselves with the candles.

Cooking Three

This was taken at Taman Connaught's pasar malam (night market) where this Char Kway Teow stall is one of the reported 700 plus stalls opened for business there every Wednesday. This area is supposedly the largest pasar malam in Malaysia.

Wednesday, October 18, 2006

Cooking Two

Came across this stall in Jalan Ipoh. The smell coming from this stall was wonderful and the operators were busy with the many customers waiting....Satay, one of my many fave food! Not a fine dining restaurant but roadside stall, where food simply tastes better!

Monday, October 16, 2006


Had taken this shot a while back during one of my Korean dinners. This one was in Korea House in Desa Sri Hartamas. I was sitting on the floor and took this shot from my level as one of the waiter bent down to cook the Bulgogi we ordered.

Mini Maze

With the Hari Raya and Deepavali celebrations around the corner, another round of festivity shopping is on. I took this shot at Subang Parade, Malaysia and thought the shoppers here look like they were in a mini maze of clothing!

Thursday, October 12, 2006


Part of the pillars of Gyeongbok (Shining Happiness) Palace, Seoul, Korea. I bet this must be a favourite place for many people to take a pic. I'm glad I'm one of the many.

Candle Light

Taken at 9.07 pm
Mode : Candle Light

Went to Czar's place and had a feast! Anyway, the kids ended up playing with candles (in replacement of lanterns since it was Mid Autumn Festival). Mmm....I wonder if all the candles and lanterns around Malaysia contributed to the haze?. I took several shots of them playing. This is one of the nicer ones.

Sunday, October 08, 2006


Taken at 6.03pm
Exposure -1 Mode:Scenery

With the recent haze, it was a pleasant surprise to have a day of blue skies yesterday. The sun was out and I could see the clouds against the blue sky. Alas, it was only a short reprieve. The haze is back again today.

Meal Time

My first attempt at nature. Took this shot in a parking lot area in Ipoh which had Jungle Flame flowers (Ixora) planted around.
Mode : Macro

Wednesday, October 04, 2006


Here's a candid shot of some Korean folklore performers and audience a few minutes before the show started. I like how at ease the performers seem to be and how everyone in the picture is doing different things. The male performer is looking over the shoulder of the lady who is busy looking at her camera. The female performer in turn is looking at them amusingly. The mother seated on the pavement is busy eating and how the little girl seems to be wondering if she really does look good in pink! Ha ha ha.....

Suwon World Cup Stadium

The 2006 World Cup has come and gone but such football fever will forever linger in the hearts of die hard fans (in remission till the next 2010 World Cup in South Africa!). The Koreans are very proud of their Suwon World Cup Stadium, one of the venues during 2002's World Cup. This stadium can seat a whopping 43,288 spectators! I love the sea of coloured seats here!

Having Fun!

I like this shot as it goes to show that even if we aren't kids anymore, we can still very much act like one and enjoy the moment....whenever, whatever! This is a different version of our regular see-saw (an amateur version of the circus act?) and it's lots of fun as you can tell from the man's face. Even the lady in the background was amused!

Thursday, September 28, 2006


One of the many "protectors" watching over Gyeongbok Palace, Seoul. The Asian version of gargoyles, I think. Pretty scary looking (this is one of the less scary ones) because it takes a devil to catch a devil, as some people would say.

Freedom Is Not Free

Monument In Rememberance Of The Korean War. "Freedom Is Not Free" - words written on the stone tablet. That's a staff going through his rounds.
At the War Memorial Hall - Seoul, Korea

Seoul Colours

This was a pillow in one of the few places I visited in Seoul. Again, being one who love colours (not on me though! Ha ha ha...), I snapped a pic of it.

Seoul Reflections

This was taken in front of a retail store in Itaewon. The reflective ball is so shiny, almost completely free from handprints. When I saw it and the reflection, I just had to stop and take a photo of it. It also had all these equations, giving us the answers on life and really something to reflect on?

Wednesday, September 20, 2006


While having tea at a restaurant, I found this lamp beautiful but the shadow cast on the ceiling made me more fascinated. It was like an extension of the lamp.

Big & Small

This was taken at the Malacca Zoo. I like this shot as it shows how tiny the kid is compared to the animal. The kid was in awe, marvelling at the size of it. Anyone can tell me which species this cow/bull/cattle is? I forgot.

I will be away in Korea till Tuesday, so no postings till then. Looking forward to taking photocs in Korea. Take care everyone...see you all soon.

Thursday, September 14, 2006


Continuing on colours. I took this shot during an intermission of a play I was watching at KLPAC (Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre). I looked behind and saw a sea of colours. Due to the dim lights and no tripod again, the pic isn't as clear as I would like it to be. I like the colours though.
