KFC at night.. the Kianggeh Food Court lah. Its one of those places that we know exist but most of us dont visit anymore. I dont know why. I'm a frequent visitor, popping by late at night for a quick meal. Cheap, fast and lively. But i'm not the only one. Most nights the place is alive with young people, till the early mornings. Eating and chatting and smoking and generally making a lot of noise. The foods not that great but its available. The Sop hati buyah is nice though!! And the satay..well..there are four or five satay vendors there and i can say at least two of them are fantastic.

If you havent been there at nights, pop by. Its nice. Its still somewhat dirty, but its nice. Sometimes one wonders why the authorities havent done anything to fix the place up. It has plenty of potential. What does it take to move them to do something..???

Happy 62nd Birthday

His Majesty's 62nd Birthday. Missed most of it because of a stomach bug. Missed the functions. Missed the fireworks. Missed lots of good photo opportunities.

I've been meaning to buy myself a 100mm Macro lens. But belum tersampai. Huh. Lots of opportunities to express creativity with them. But then again, i'm just afraid that after buying them, i wouldnt be much using them. Usually the case with us right.? Excited in the beginning but forgotten in the end. Typical human nature. I'm not a professional photographer. I dont use my Nikon to earn a living. So i should learn to live within my means, and to buy only what i need. sigh....

Life is strange. Just when u think u have it figured out, it turns on you and you're left in the dark again.

Found this growing near the garage. I thought it looked at peace, growing in the shade


Two pics on Bandar at night, taken a week ago. I bet its looking better tonight.. but i'm still away and wouldnt be able to take any pics til tomorrow. These pics were taken on a short walkabout taken on a whim last week, at 1am. Didnt bring my tripod so a lot of the pics i took were shaky and blurry. These midnight jaunts are extremely fun..just remember to bring along a photgrapher you wouldnt look so out of place.

SOAS at night

Picture taken a week ago. In preparation for the celebrations for His Majesty's birthday. Bandar is lighted up about this time. SHould be nice. But i wouldnt know..i'm away at this moment..and in my infinite wisdom, i (mistakenly) decided not to bring my Nikon. Not a good idea. Sigh!!

Buggies in Serasa

Took the kids to Serasa cos they've been talking about getting on those buggythingies all week. So we went, and they had a lot of fun. They have kiddie sized dune buggies there in Serasa...but only on Sundays. . Nice. Maybe a bit dangerous with all those people around but keep an eye on them and they should be okay.

These pics were taken during the last school holidays. We didnt go anywhere, just enjoying the hols in lovely Brunei.

Oh yeah, havent been updating a while. My macbook HDD conked out.. seems to be a common problem with the macs. But i have it back and all is good.

Sunset .. again

Picture taken a couple of days back. Sunset. Looks dramatic.

Cloudy days are a boon for photographers..makes our pictures all that more dramatic. Makes for really good landscapes and nature pics. BUT... its LOUSY for my Astro reception!!!! Especially now during Euro2008. Its like seeing a series of photographs flashed across the screen. Oh Why cant Astro strengthen the power of their signal.....???

Took this sometime ago. Weird clouds and weirder weather we're getting nowadays. Scary too. I was standing outside the house when this suddenly happened. And then it rained really heavily. Global warming..??

Muara beach facelift

Muara beach is getting a facelift!! And about time too. And its nice. I like.

The beach is also cleaned up.. these big dozers were busily clearing up. The beach also have a nice new playground with new games (?). WIll be bringing my kids there soon...

in the garden..

Just messing about in the garden. You know the drill...feeling bored but not really wanting to go anywhere with your camera. Lots of little things to point my camera to. Pity i dont have a macro on the shopping list me thinks.
