Unforgettable weekend.

Friday Night

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner with Tzu Ching and 社區師姑師伯 at Bukit Antarabangsa. It’s been awhile since I ‘lao shang’… not that I really do it… I was busy photographing… haha


Food… Good food… and best of all, fully vegetarian… In fact, too much already… can’t finish all the fresh vegetables.


Four of them in the middle celebrating birthday in the month of February and March. Happy Birthday! and we sang the longest birthday song ever.



Saturday Night

Meeting up with the the other YLA-ers and McKinsey staffs for a graduation dinner.

We had our dinner at Ciao Ristorante. My first time here, and it was a great night indeed.


Getting ready for a group photograph.



My first time trying Italian food in a restaurant… And thanks a lot to Michelle, I got some vegetarian food to enjoy! And they certainly taste great!


Chatting with the mentors.


Seelan sharing his thoughts with us.


Getting our certificates from our mentors. And thanks to the McKinsey team for the wonderful ‘Yearbook’… We loved it!


Token of appreciation from us.


Group Shot.


Thanks a lot to McKinsey team and the mentors for such a wonderful experience.



Yesterday was the first time I boarded a 4-coach LRT. I must say, it has more space than the older 2-coach, and so much better equipped for the handicapped. So when are they going to join the 2 coaches into 4-coach train?

Chile was struck by an earthquake this morning… Let’s pray that there would be no tsunamis affecting other countries and may the victims be safe and sound. There are just too many natural disasters on earth. I wonder, when are we going to realise that? When are we going to put thoughts into actions?

Selayang Layang-layang Park

Selayang = Place name

Layang-layang = Kites

Yea. On 18th Feb, I went to the Selayang Park with a good friend. Nothing much there, but certainly a nice place to jog and enjoy the sceneries. In the evening, this place would be crowded with people, especially kids playing kites.





In the lotus flower with bee shot, having a 200mm would be great, but I don’t own one… so I used the macro instead. The detail of the lotus was stunning, but sadly, a bit too far away from where I was standing.

Anyways, school is starting soon, and the workload is going to go up and up and up.

Chinese New Year Day 1

Nothing much happened really. Just went out for some photographs shooting around my kampung. And thanks a lot, my mentor is free enough to tell me what’s wrong with some of my photographs…

Here are some of the photographs which are good, but then again, could be better.


My aunt finally caged this monkey for stealing food and vandalizing plants & flowers at the backyard.



The magnificent evening sky.




Malaysia has a great deal of sceneries yet to be seen. Just that, sceneries in Malaysia is slightly harder to photograph as compared to sceneries from overseas.

Again, wishing everyone HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!!!

Photographs in the future…

I have been thinking and thinking and thinking… how come my photographs looked different from other professional photographers’? Why are my shots like… hmm…

I know that I need to photograph more and try harder and yet, I still admire other people’s photographs. Theirs looked so… creamy, some of them looked crazy… so why are my photos so different?

Is it because the way I was being trained? Is it because my mentor is training me the way he wants me to be? Am I not receiving enough critics (which is like so true… my mentor is so close to me yet so busy)? But most importantly, am I heading towards the right direction? Are my shots only be enjoyed by certain group of people and not general public? hmm…

Still thinking…

Critical Thinking, Problem Solving and Decision Making

This is the second UTAR softskills workshop I joined. It was fun, the trainer was fantastic and I definitely enjoyed my time there.

While waiting for the LRT… a sight to behold.



During the course, we were required to build a plane based on some of the guidelines given.

Test flight…



Pilots with the airplanes…



The “wobble-wobble” test to test the structural integrity of the aeroplane.



And finally, my team with the trainer, Captain Ariva.



Thanks to him, I now know the truth behind Bermuda Triangle… haha. Anyways, I hope to meet him again in the future for other courses.

Joe McNally

I guess, the biggest regret of all, was not being able to meet him in person… should have ignored my dad and fork out RM 380 to attend that workshop…



By the way, why are there so many journals to read even after I have finished my FYP? Are the lecturers trying to stack us with lots and lots of journals? Imagine this, 1 lecturer = 5 journals + another lecturer 2 journals + many many more coming soon…

These photographs looked nice… but they are of big ‘NO-NOs’…

Still, I think they deserve to be seen in public.



Do enjoy.
