Overhaulin’ and Sunset at Marina Bay

Blog under revamption:
As you have guessed if you’ve visited since the last post i am in the process of updating the blog layout and also correcting picture size. I believe a photoblog should have a bigger layout as it will allow for picture posting.

In the meantime

Was mising home and was looing at this pic the other day which gives me nostalgic feelings, so decided to post it here.
Take with a compact point and shoot canon powershot a400

Will be back

Chingay

Haha first time i heard it i thought it was hokkien for very Gay. But nah. It is an event  where they compete to balance the flag.Big big big flag

The flag pole (bamboo pole) and the flag are the main materials for Chingay. The length of the flag pole ranges from 25 ft to 32 ft, the length of the flag is around 25 ft, the total weight of these materials is around 60 pounds

I googled and asked around, there is suppose to be floats but since this is a competition then i guess this is not a full fledge parade. And i found out the word originated in Penang and Singapore is emulating the culture. In Singapore and Penang there would be a big parade. You can read more here http://www.penangchingay.org/history.html

But anyway i arrived late and the end.It was time for the price giving ceremony and i was only armed with a borrowed 50mm lens. Definite no no to take these huge flags. So here are some of my crappy shots for the end of the event. Didn’t even see any performance.

 

This last picture is totally unrelated to the Chingay competition. I went to the monthly Penang Road Sunday market (Only last sunday of the month) and these fellas were seen all around offering free hugs. If only they were available everywhere. Anytime I just feel like hugging, i’ll just go hug them.

Ho Chiak Cafe Miri

I have been camless for a while, but i have some pictures to share on food that i took for my dad’s Coffee Shop. Ho Chiak Cafe, Miri.
So for all Miri people go try it out. Been around for a year and now new items are added on the menu.
What i would recommend is the Fried noodles, the Tofu Noodles, and the Foo Chow Mee Sua. On drinks the favourite so far that the customers have been coming back for is the Cincau ‘c’, Bandung and Red Bean.
Economy fast food is also available during lunch hour. So here goes…Full menu click read more

Asus P320 mobile photography blogging

Hello people sorry i have not been updating the blog as i have been packing my stuff to send back to Sarawak and have been travelling around.
In the mean time i was away from the internet world, i got myself a new backpack that is huge enough to snuck in my camera bag and laptop bag with some clothes. Yup you read it right. BAGS in a bag. Not the cam and lappy but both of that and their bags.In the meantime…

I’ve also got myself a new mobile phone as the last one i bought was 2 years ago and is really in RUGGED shape hehe.
It’s an ASUS P320. It has as 2mp AF camera which i deem will be enough for some simple pics. I will be using it for blogging on the go while i am travelling. or allow me to take some simple pics when i miss bringing out my cam. Will update again later. Here’s a pic of how the phone looks like.

Photography Final Exam

 

Exam slip It’s my final paper this semester and also the LAST i’m going to take in UUM. Yays!!!Moving to Penang from Kedah.

I better go study now…Theoretical knowledge seems far more complicated than practical. Going against any theoretical rules is a no no. On the practical side, as long as the pictures look nice it ok, break any rules and make the picture into something that you want it’s ok.

Will share my knowledge with my readers after i graduate and when i am free to document it. Thinking of working for Canon as i want to get staff price for the L lenses, hehe.

Anyways ciao…

IMG_0004_bpsig

Yeah that place was filled with flowers, i just realised most of my photos of the flowers were yellow.

Finally something different, this is one of my favourite photos in my photo collection. Tomatoes

IMG_0001bpsig

These tomatoes were taken when I was on a trip to Cameron Highlands. I was happily snapping pictures of roses when I saw it dangling on its main plant located at the edge of the garden where there was a pit below and a house on the opposite. I had to cling onto the wooden pillar beside it to produce this picture. It made me feel like the tomato at that moment.-Billy
