Review of 2011


Hoyeah everyone. Its the last day of the year and I bet none of you are not happy to get into 2012. Or you do? Anyhow, for the special day, I will review what's happening around my life in 2011. Let's get the ball rolling!

I came out fresh from the UK fridge and guess what, I got 3 days at home before going back to college. I admit it's very taxing. Damn it. Jet lag was quite a problem since I have not been sleeping properly. Let's move on the the best part. Chinese New Year celebration at college. Cool. Why? Cos I'm taking photos and videos. Click here to see the performance videos by awesome IPG KBA students. Then comes Ponggal celebration. Hoho. You can see Mr. Mano getting excited this time around. Hahaha! A friend of mine, Aisyah got married in the same month. Congratulations! Guess nothing much took place in January. Everyone are busy preparing themselves. I also realised there's a lot of juniors from Borneo.

Valentine's months is quite a boring one. Nothing much took place and I got bored. Let's move on.

My first medal after coming back from the UK. There's this Women Sports Carnival that took place in my college and the only thing that excites me is the 5K running events. Well, I never thought of winning but after placing a lot of effort, I end up third with 11 minutes and 44 seconds. Click here to read more on the events. After that, I head to Alor Star for the weekends. That place sure changed a lot since I left it. Then it comes to the day where I joined the convocation as one of the committees. Basically we just collect tickets and show the guest their seats. SPM results coming out the same month.

April Fool! Damn Shit. This time around, I went to Port Dickson, to help around with BIG for French students. Together with Denish, Mun Ting and Mr. Tahir, we did enjoy ourselves. Well it doesn't end there. Sports Day was just around the corner and I was appointed House Captain. It was hell. But I hope I does help everyone. I got 3 gold medals from my favourite events which are 400M, 800M and 1500M. I broke my own records for the former and latter thus bringing home the Athlete of The Year Award. Mr. Tahir's retirements was next and I was so sad to see him leave the office. And thats all for April

What's in May? I know. Its SAN birthday! Happy birthday dear! Juniors had their play titled A Midsummer Night's Dream which was the same story as my cohort had done in 2007. It was great and I had it all recorded. There's also some kids from SK Jeroco, Sabah which came around this month on a programme conducted by our KPLI 2006 senior. Not forgetting that during this time around, I got my final exam. The last one for my degree year.

Holidays and yes. The start of my practicum life. My first. And I'm excited. Methodist Girl School, Brickfield became my first school and I have to agree, it has ups and downs. Basically some individuals who kept on f***ing us up from day one. Other teachers were cool and helpful but there's also some who tried to take advantage of us. And they failed. HAHAHA! My uncle from Bintulu came for his convocation in PWTC.

I'm on my practicum so there's nothing to brag about. Yeah. Got a new lens for my camera. Its Tamron 17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II LD ASPHERICAL (IF). So sharp. So awesome. Not just that, Borneo Night is next and I handled medley dancers for the male and also magunatip. In the quest for bamboo, I got a call from my dad. And it goes like this.

Me: Ayah, ada buluh x? (Dad, do you have some bamboos)
Ayah: Berapa lori abang nak? (How many lorries of bamboos would you like?)

Yes, It was at the same time where my dad got a lot of bamboos to build his chicken coop. I head to Tanjung Malim with Florinta and we gather some bamboo, then we head back to IPBA. Nice durian right, Florinta? BTW, Borneo Night was a success. Thanks to everyone.

MERDEKA! Yeah right. Bring that to next months. It was Eid and everyone went home. I felt sorry for those who didn't make it home. Huuuu. Well. Outdoor photoshoot with family is not bad.

National Day celebration? Yezza. Got it all and I've also made a video dedicated to our country. Also the last of my practicum.

First was KARAK at IPIS. Guess this year was not as happening as last year though. No offense people, just saying the truth. Closed Badminton Tournament among IPBArians was held and Hikhmah won. Congrats. TESL Night was right after. Can't say no. And my roommate, Ibrahim won the best dress award. Awesome bro. After training for a few months, I guess I'm ready. Head to Sabah for the 25th Mount Kinabalu International Climbathon. My first time joining and I brought home a medal with 4H 21M 40S. Thanks a lot to Uncle Menuil, Auntie Felicia, Fazdilla and SAN for helping me out in Sabah. And also thanks for taking me to nice place around Ranau. Not to forget my friends who helped me out in KK, Bet, Nurul, Irwin, Baim, Chu & Bina. You are awesome. And also Pakteh and Makteh. Mira & Asha as well.

Cocurricular Day? To give out awards to students who made great achievement in cocurricular fields. I got Anugerah Khas - Tokoh Kecemerlangan Kokurikulum Lelaki (Special Award - Male Cocurricular Excellence Icon). Thanks a lot. Head to I-city Shah Alam with SAN, Yong & Diba. Had a great time with awesome shots. Officially with SAN on the 11th of November. Great timing.

My cousin got married. Congrats Kak Ain & Abang Solihin. Other than that, I waste time until next year.

Guess that's all that took place in 2011. Hope 2012 will be more happening.

Last week, San, Yong, Diba & I went to i-City, Shah Alam. In case you're not sure what I'm talking about here, try to Google it first. It was San's and my first time there and yeah, we were quite excited. Went there to try some shoots such as light painting and defocus lighting. Here is a shot by Yong. Much colourful than mine so that's why I decided to put it up.

Light painting was quite a mess as we don't have a tripod with us which caused so many blurry effects to the shots. But it was fun.

P/S: Bumper cars need seat belts as well.

Daily Photo #129


Here is a shot of Mount Kinabalu or Nung Nabalu stated by the locals, situated in Kundasang, Sabah. With the height of 4,092 metres above sea level, it is one of the mountains in the world where you can reach the peak without any climbing gears. Every October, there will be a race called Climbathon where participants will race to the peak and come down to the finish line. The total distance of Climbathon? 8km up, 8km down & 4km more. To make it worse, try to finish it within 4 hours and 30 minutes.

I've entered Climbathon this year and let me tell you this. It was heaven and hell at the same time. And its awesome. I managed to get to the summit within 2 hours but heading down gobble up my time as I fell twice and require some treatment. Despite that, I did finished the race within 4 hours & 21 minutes.

P/S: I believe the locals can go up and down Kinabalu in just 2 hours.

A shot of the biggest flower in the world. The Rafflesia. This was shot in the district of Ranau, Sabah. This flower takes a full one year to bloom and the smell was... acceptable. The flower can last up to a week (in a preserve environment).

Nikon 1


Yes. Digital photography have entered a mirrorless era and Nikon have to accept that fact. So they come up with Nikon 1.

Let's not waste more time and get to the specs. Because that's the only thing running in your mind right now. Yeah.

- 10.1-megapixel CX format CMOS sensor (13.2mm x 8.88mm)
- All-new Nikon 1 lens mount system
- Dual-core Expeed 3 sensor, which is why it's all fast and able to do photo/video simultaneously
- A new 73-point hybrid autofocus system that combines contrast and phase-detection, switching between the two seamlessly;
- Video's 1080p/30fps; 1080i/60fps; 720p/60fps; output in h.264 format
- Slow motion video: 640 x 240/400fps; 320 x 120/1,200 fps
- ISO 100-3200 (expandable to 6400)
- 10fps bursts, but with AF locked, it can shoot at up to 60fps, which is the world's fastest continuous shooting speed, according to Nikon
- 12-bit RAW

(taken from Gizmodo)

Yeah they also chunked in 4 special lenses for it. A 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6, 10mm f/2.8 pancake, 30-100mm f/3.8-5.6 zoom and 10-100mm f/4.5-5.6 powerzoom.

Hope it competes well with Sony' NEX and Olympus' PEN.

Me Today...

A while ago I was feeling lonely and lost living in a frenetic and impersonal world never quite feeling like I belonged.
Something was missing but what could it be?
It couldn’t be God, friends, boyfriend or family then one day I figured it out.
The emptiness was inside I was missing the full sense of me.
A self too narrowly defined, limiting because there are so many sides to me.
I have share of tears and fears, even doubts and insecurities.
I’m capable of greatness and goof-ups too.
I am princess wishing for a big stone castle.
I am Olympic champion, with silver, bronze and gold.
I am a daughter, sister, cousin, student and friend.
I’ve claimed all once missing part of me.

I would like to ask forgiveness from everyone
Let bygones be bygones

Now is not the time to cry over yesterday's pain.
Now is the time to strive for a better tomorrow.

Well. Here are some shots before and during the celebration.

Steve Jobs Quit


Yes. You've probably heard the news. He quits. Yes.

Steve's news were all over the place. And yes, it has been rumoured before he even send his resignation letter.

Why he did that? Just assume he's sick (in which he is) and being Apple CEO can kill him. However he did mentioned that he can either be members of board of directore, employees or whatshit. (Thats demanding).

And the result of his action? He is so significant, whatever he did will affect the whole company. Yes. Like? Apple stocks in the stock market falls greatly. Yes. The same thing happens before when he ask for a medical leave. He was into this liver transplant shit and Apple's stocks only recover when he came back.

Whatever it is, it is a good competition in the gadget world with his presence. Yet we never will be able to tell what will take place in the future of smartphones and internet tablets.

Hope everything ends well.
