10082008 Day Out

The post title is actually a date. It was a Sunday, had something planned but somehow something went wrong and we had to go somewhere else.
Original plan was, meet up with Shouters at Berjaya Times Square for makan session, then join the Kbox people for karaoke session, then Jogoya for dinner.
What really happened, waited for the Shouters for a long while, and took photos of a fashion show while waiting. Decided to have lunch at Gasoline after walking around aimlessly for a short while. And then joined in the karaoke session one hour later than planned time. Jogoya was canceled due to a sad reason. Left the gang to join another gang for Korean food instead.

Who's behind the menu?

Gasoline's food were OK, very thick sauce with heavy flavouring, I think. Their drinks were good though.

And then the Kbox people at Redbox. My first, real group shot with them.


Since the much anticipated Jogoya dinner was canceled, I left earlier with Daniel to meet up with Jane and David for Korean food instead. Don't know exactly where the place is situated, but it was around Ampang. The whole place was full of Korean shops and restaurants, and well, Koreans.


My first time really eating Korean food, learned a few things about Koreans and how to eat Korean food, Korean style. The side dishes were all free of charge, we only had to pay for our beers, the meat and beef soup thingy? Yeah. It was quite fun. Food was good, and thanks to the beer we got pretty full in little time.

When are we going again?
And I still want that Jogoya dinner. Anybody?

I'm an Alphanatic

Parents are coming back home on the 18th of August 2008. There goes my "home alone". Good thing is, I don't have to handle all the chores on my own. College life is changing, somehow. I'm beginning to get a clearer picture about something important. Also, learning how to be more creative in terms of photography, and I still suck in portraiture. -__-

There was a Sony Alpha Photography Seminar on the 9th of August 2008, in Le Meridian Hotel, KL. It was my first time attending a seminar of that level. Five-star hotel can? And yet it's free for Alpha users to attend. More than a hundred people turned up. The talk was interesting, now I know more about flash photography and got some ideas on shooting still life.

The lunch they provided was Arabian buffet. I never thought Arabian food was so good. Now I have something new to crave for. I heard there's one in Sunway Pyramid, anyone want to go eat Arabian food with me?

There was nothing much to shoot during the seminar, I think. Everyone was shooting each other, loads of group photos. Since I hardly blog with human photos, I didn't took many. From here on out, photos, photos and photos.

Arabian buffet restaurant in Le Meridian, KL. Good food with a very nice atmosphere. I'm going to check out more Arabian restaurants and see if they get any better.

Ted Adnan sharing his knowledge on flash photography and portraiture, and the heads of participants. There was another guy who talked to us about Automotive Photography - Darren Chang. I didn't shoot his photo, I kind of... forgot. -__-

Flowers on a table in the hotel. Wireless flash fired from the side and this is what I got. You can see pixels on the red flower. It only appeared after I re-size the photo. I think it's because of the colour, the re-sizer couldn't work it out.

This is where we had our tea, a little evening refreshment. Thanks to that, most of the participants were full and felt sleepy during the second-half of the talk. Nevertheless, great stuff from Darren Chang. You have to check out his blog, I think it's amazing.

The best thing that happened? They gave every participant an Alpha Survival Kit for free. So really, everything was for free, in a five-star hotel. I'm looking forward to the next Alpha camera, I hope they announce something soon.

My sister has left home for training in Hilton Hotel, KL. And with both my parents working overseas, I'm home alone all the time. Having the whole house to myself is kind of nice. Anyone want to come over to party? ................... Just kidding.

Two weeks ago I blogged about photos. Well this time, I'm going to blog about photos too. Hohoho~ Yes I'm still blogging about Redang. A lot of delaying, I know, and I don't want my posts to be too long, so I have to break it up into many posts. And I said there are going to be more words in this post. Well, I'll try.

So, Redang has this very blue sky with nice clouds. I used to spend hours shooting photos of the sky, but I'm not that noob anymore. lol~

The most famous spot on Redang Island, I think. Forgot what is it called, Laguna or Long Beach. Hmmm...

And then when we had nothing to do during the night, we tried our hands on anything we can find, including...

Scrabble. It was fun to watch them play. lol~

A very big Gecko, was like half foot long. Came out from the dark to feast on the insects. It was raining, therefore, many insects gathered around the lights.

Alright, time for more photo sharing.

A very blue post.
Thanks for reading!
