Long Way to the Top

Time and time again, life has proven that getting to the top is arduous and a difficult task, but the feeling at the top more than makes up for the hardship.

More photos coming up soon.

Venus, Jupiter and the Moon

An Ode to All-4-One

Didn’t manage to find the smiley back on Monday, but at least I’ve taken this photo on the preceding Saturday. Anyway, watch this space. I’m starting to get an interest in astrophotography, so more cool stuff soon.

Wasai Wong Kadir pt. 1

DSC_3981 (by SoulJah)

A light drizzle greeted us from our slumber last Sunday, which was to be our biggest trekking outing for the Forum members. Doubts were cast, wondering if the rain will persist the whole day, and if the weather would clear just about enough to permit us to go nature trekking up into the hills of Wasai Wong Kadir. A quick drive over to HSBC Jerudong, where the decision to go ahead or not was to be made; quick glances on all the faces to see if any disapproval to go ahead for the drive over to Labi, somehow, we all just loaded up into the transports, and a non verbal agreement was made to decide later after the drive over the the state borders.

After the drive down to Sungai Liang to meet up with the KB chapter of our forumites, the light rain still persisted. I proclaimed I’m going up regardless, and if everyone’s still up for a trek in the rain, we go ahead; and anyone who decides against it can sit it out. Almost all were in for it, seeing we just had a long drive over, might as well. After a quick prayer, we set out slowly, meandering through the slippery trails, over branches, on slippery moss covered rocks, in the light rain, with the cool surrounding air the whole time we were there.

After a good 30 minutes trek, we were greeted by the cool water of the Wasai, and some of the Forumites decide to reward themselves with a dip. Hardly anyone could resist taking even dipping their feet into the cool morning water, and under the guise of ‘taking a good composition for the photo’, yours truly went with tripod in hand into the water to take a couple of photos.

It was worth it.

KL Trippin’ part 1

Sunlight Cascading from the Heavens (by SoulJah)
I’m gonna post just the photos I took from my first morning in KL which I did a bit of sightseeing, going around to KL Tower and the Petronas Twin Towers. Lovely people, lovely sights, lovely nightlife. In short, I had an awesome time shooting and exploring that city, which I can safely say, that never sleeps.

If you people know the reason I went there, you know how to get to my Flickr and check out the stuff I took. Definitely not gonna post it here.

Paradise Found: Kuraman Day Trippin’

Man, Kuraman is like the Venus sculpture. It’s beautiful overall, but looking at it closely reveals imperfections. I’d go back if not for the one hour long ride on a small boat. My whole body was sore from the boat ride, and I think I swallowed too much sea water that I’m still nursing my sore throat.

Happy New Year

NIKON D300_0012__DSC1760-Edit-2
Taken last year, with Jim747 in tow. I practically forced him to shoot here.

CPL stacked with ND grad in front to cut off the bright sunlight. Didn’t cut it off completely though, too bad.
