It's been quite sometime that I'd lived a single life! Many of my frens kept questioning the same thing over & over again as I'm a "Playboy" in their eyes. Even my Mama and Papa kept telling me which gal is pretty, which gal is good... Swt~~~

~ Hey, I'm not a "Playboy" OK ~ Juz that I'm not desperate in finding my other half so soon. Memories from the past are still with me. Juz not ready to go for it yet:- My career in photography has juz started and I'm so into it. Besides, I'd like to focus and finish up my final sem in style! After I grad, plans in travelling around the world for 7 months are already in my mind. Can't wait (Plans will be updated later in the winter)

Proton BWF Thomas & Uber Cup 2010

It has been quite sometime that I'd not step my foot into a badminton court. It's great that my comeback to badminton court is to Stadium Putra witnessing the battle of Thomas Cup which held last weekend. This time is quite unique as I brought along my gear (Camera) to the court instead of bringing in a racket and challenge for a win.

Good fortunes comes straight to me as I was given this pass to shoot the players from the court area. With the help of my 70-300mm, this is just nice. No flashes are to be used during the whole competition as this might affect the player's attention. Anyhow, the lighting around the court was superb and gives photomans a good brightness that we are all hoping for. I did froze a few moments of Lin Dan (China) giving a jumping smash. Photos are more on Lin Dan as he was one of my idol... Hehe!

This was a great experience to witness a LIVE badminton match. The atmosphere over the stadium was fanatic. I couldn't believe how supportive are all the guests. Drums, trumpets and plastic sticks are all over the stadium supporting and cheering for their players. There were some chaos during the match as some dumb ass threw a bottle to the player. This is really embarrassing!

Anyhow, this experience opens up my eyes @.@ and I'll hope for a second chance to go for X-Treme sports in the future. Hell yea... Chau pplz~

Challenged Broga Hill

Started my very last semester @ UCSI, I maximize this opportunity to go out with my frens before we all went to seek for our own future. Planned and challenged the Broga Hill early in the morning. We gathered at McD early 04:00 and reaching there around 05:15! Climbing up the hill at this time is not very promising as it was dark and the road were full of golf holes. But however, we don't hv any choice as my mission is to get a shot of the sunrise. I keep pushing them to climb faster as the sun is coming up. This is very very wrong as I used up all my gases and resulting an empty energy tank up there. Feeling so uneasy caz the lack of oxygen and exhausted. I rested for a while alone at the 1st peak. Challenged the 2nd peak not long after and setup the camera for the sunrise. WTH? No sunrise that morning. Cannot see a single round duck egg that morning. Shit man, walking down the hill is even more scarier. it was like rolling down the hill as my shoe was outta grip caz all those sand were stuck in between of the grip stripes. I walked myself up here because of nothing and rolled myself down there with cut and bruises. I told myself that this was the first and the very last time I challenge this damn thing. Anyhow, it was still an amazing trip caz I worked it out with all my frens. Cool~

After the challenge, we went to a nearby temple and wondered around. Then, breakfast at Semenyih is really nice. Chic mushroom noodle... I craved for more... =)

Licence to Style Fashion Show

Hello fashion freaks out there! I've been attending the "Licence To Style" held at One Utama for two consecutive weekends. It has been amazing seeing all those pretty models rocking on the stage and being flashed by the photographers (Including me)! I was really into fashion show not just because of all those pretty models but for the music that steal my heart beat! I crazed for those music and downloaded a few of them, rocking at home like a crazy dude! Steamzzz

Tons of fashion outlets participated on this fashion show bringing up their best Spring & Summer collection. It was nice to see non-asian models on the stage as this bring a totally different feel for fashion show. They were so professional and plays their part really well. Good job man~

As usual, I put on the 70-300mm G lense for the entire show as it gives me the perfect framing for the models. Using A-mode and setting the camera to ISO 400. Testing the light of the stage is not easy as the colour temperature was too warm! I adjusted my camera's colour temperature to a more cooler feel to compensate the extreme colour on the stage. Shadows were not much a problem as the lighting around the stage was good. Overall, I'm really satisfied on the result that I've got! Thx

* Sorry, photos were too much that I'd to split it into three different albums.

Iron Man 2 Movie Review

Well as everyone was sharing the same question "Iron Man 2 better or Ip Man 2?" I'd watched this two movies. In the end, I clarified that Ip Man 2 was the winner. Why did I said so? Iron Man 2 was more on technologies and talking scenes makes me boring. The heroic Iron Man was not much different compared to the 1st episode. Not really recommend for this movie compared to Ip Man 2. [4/10]

Synopsis: Tony found out that his invention, the core in his chest was giving him health problem "The blood toxicity". As he was trying to replace the Paladium in his chest, the government wants him to produce suits for the military. As Ivan helps the government to create the suits they needed.

Colmar Tropicale, Berjaya Hills

A big hi and hello to all of you out there! Day-5 was the best of all "A trip to Colmar Tropicale". Tis trip has been in my mind for quite sometime and it's time to get it right. This great sunny Saturday will be my day to accomplish this mission together with my sis and model of the day "KK". While relaxing up the hill, I benefited this opportunity in using my new lense to capture my first set of portrait pixars. Whee ~~

We registered with the tourism center. Whoa a Mercedes-Benz, yup a Mercedes was arranged to get us there for RM 52 each including the entrance fee and the return tickets. That was a great journey as this was my very first time going to that place. Once we got our butt there, I pop out my camera and attached with the suitable lense. Capturing pictures were begun straight away.
I used 3 different lenses in capturing all the special moments. Since it was early and not much tourists were there at the early morning, I decided to maximize this opportunity in capturing the scenery and the French's architecture before it gets crowded. First using the 18-70mm for capturing the scenery around the area. The range given by this lense enables me to capture amazing scenery from different angles. Cool ~

During the lunch time, I switched to the longer range lense 70-300mm. From the outdoor restaurant, I was able to capture some moments of tourists walking and passing by. Besides, I was so lucky as Astro Hua Hee Tai crew was there capturing their new show which will be broad casted on tv soon.

Lastly, switching to the new 50mm lense. This was my first time capturing human portraits. Thx to model "KK". He was so pro in posing and giving different styles in suitable areas. By borrowing the great sunlight, I'm able to light up my model just as how I wanted to. I'm glad to receive amazing response from the portrait pictures that I'd captured. To be very honest, I'm satisfied with the result of those pics. What makes me frustrated was unable to get the Silhouette effect as we'd gone back around 5pm. Steamzzz...

Back to Colmar Tropicale, my comment of this trip was good if you never been there before. Weather is cool, temperature was warm, and rmr to bring sun oil as u might get burnt by the sun. It was a perfect place for photographers who would like to capture scenery and portrait pictures. For the Japanese village, there was not much excitement. Nature lovers, this would be nice as there was a botanical garden and also the world first Ryozantei Tea House which was located in the center of the nature. Bear in mind that there will be lotsa creatures including bugs and Dracula around the natures. Models are adviced to bring extra attire as the hot weather will make u wet and hot. I would prefer not to return to this place for a second visit. But however, if there are models who would prefer outdoor portraits, I'll reconsider! Hehe. Times up, gotta go frens. See ya! :p

Sony SAM 50mm F1.8 review

Hey boys & gals out there! Check this out. I've just added a new lense (50mm F1.8) to my collection recently. Day-3 of my holiday starts right here. Planning to go town to collect my BB gun, I came across this store and asked for the best price of this lense. The 1st few shops that I'd asked gave me negative responses. When I got up to this shop, they offered me a good price as I knew the salesperson. Time to upgrade my camera edi! Hehe... :p

Attaching the silver-ringed lense to my camera body, it juz feels nice. Take a sample shot of it, it gives me such a great pleasure seeing the power aperture and the sharpness of the object. Really love using this lense to take portrait pics. It gives me such pleasure and it's damn good. Try it and u'll know what is call the power of bokehness! Learning how to snaps portrait pix (Amazed by JS's wedding photographs)!

I'd tried to capture some special moments. Setting ur camera to Aperture mode will gv u the best quality of aperture and sharpness of the object. When taking human portrait pictures, frame your main object as far as possible with the background. This will produce a perfect bokeh and sharpness of the model! Try it, hv some fun.
