KL Trippin’ New Years
I’ve just realized I haven’t posted quite a lot of Trippin’ photos lately, as I have not been out of the country with the camera lately. So in an effort to bolster my Trippin’ collection on this site, I’ll have to regurgitate some photos I’ve taken from my New Year’s trip to KL.
As I was waiting for everyone to return from their shopping, initially I tried to sleep off the afternoon to lessen the effect of the previous boat/plane/bus/LRT ride, but how can you when KL is beckoning just downstairs? So with camera in hand, I set out to explore a bit of Jalan P. Ramlee, and what it has to offer.
Instantly as I set out of the apartments, this was waiting for me at the shoulder of the intersection. Composing it against the background of blaring lights and music, sets off a tone of normalcy against the hectic city life. Great area we stayed in actually, stalls just down the road, a small grocery shop (important!) and a great Indian eatery just a bit of walk away down a small road, where I get my breakfast everyday while everyone’s still out of it on their beds.
I find that I’m a bit reluctant to shoot on the streets of KL. While the other lads are more than happy to hang around and shoot their hearts content along Jalan Bukit Bintang, I still feel a bit concerned about whipping the darn thing out in public. My lenses aren’t actually tiny, save for the 50mm and the 105mm, but I tricked myself that I’d be more inclined to shoot in public only if I have the 50mm with me. I’d have done so too, if we weren’t too busy shopping and eating! Yeah, show me to the nearest Adidas boutique or sports apparel shop, I guarantee you you’d find a shopaholic in there (me!).
Oh I wanted to try the steamboat after a long night of partying, but at 3AM, it was already gone. Darn.
