My sons in action : Cycling






Only Yiyi's photos are available because he was sporting enough to stop and smile for the camera. As in Abe Awe, he was too busy cycling and wouldn't stop to pose and I was not too eager to chase him around.

p/s: they wanted to wear motorcycle helmets.. hehe okay, which reminds me I should buy them proper cycling helmets after this

Eye on Malaysia - Finally

After almost a year, we set foot at Tasik Titiwangsa on Sunday, 25th Nov. 2007 to ride the one and only - Eye on Malaysia (eye on some part of KL actually)

This was not a planned trip. Yes, I did mentioned to my husband that since my cousin Cik Minah has taken a ride on the giant ferris wheel, it's a shame that we who stayed in KL do not want to take the chance (Cik Minah lives in Penang and came here 2 weeks ago on a school visits). So I said, I wanted to buy a key chain at the souvenir shop. Suddenly my hubby said, okay, let's ride Eye on Malaysia as well.. Of course all of us were so excited at the idea!

We parked our car at the National Art Gallery and walked to Tasik Titiwangsa (just a 10 minutes walk)

I am still learning to use my digital camera, a nikon coolpix s200.


I wish I can afford to buy a better camera, a DSLR maybe. But photography is not easy without knowing the techniques and having the right skills. The last time I was involved in photography was aeons ago during my university years. We only had photography sessions or perhaps only one that I could remember. Therefore, there wasn't enough exposures and experience that I could gain. At least the club I joined at school was better, even if the 3 of us had to share one camera and we also did spend a lot of time in the dark room.


So what I could do with just what I have? I'm not sure at all if it has any value to others. But what can I say is that at this moment what I could do is bring out the best of what I have.








my old school. I took this while moving in a car (my hubby was driving, of course ;) )

Short note:
Photos taken from Sept onwards were results of my nikon. Previous photos (before Sept 07) was taken using my sony ericsson K310i
