Mother and Son

I love how this turned out, I only had one chance to shoot them as they disappeared soon after the shutter was pressed. Lucky! ^_^

I went to Batu Caves with Ah Tak last Friday, we took the #11 Metrobus just in front of Bangkok Bank around Central Market area. The one way trip cost RM2 and the journey takes about half an hour. It was a nice ride, tourists will love it as they are first presented with the hustle bustle of the city and then it gradually changes to the more serene suburban scenery. Before we even arrive at Batu Caves, we were already teased with glimpses of the breathtaking mountain view. When we finally arrive there, it truly felt out of this world. With birds flying near the mountains... It felt like we're at some movie set ^_^

Anyway, here's the obligatory touristy postcard shot of the place showing the new Lord Murugam statue and the (in)famous steps of Batu Caves. I don't remember the exact number but I think its around 270+, honestly they were nothing. Back in the days when I still live in campus I have to climb 250+ stairs everyday to get to my dormitory. One thing though, the place is a lot smaller than I had imagined. Now I am very very glad I didn't go there during Thaipusam last February, I wouldn't be able to stand the crowd! >_<

Motherly Love

Favourite picture from the trip! Definitely not an easy picture to take with them moving around so much, I'm glad how perfect it turned out. The mother's and the chick's interaction, the sharp and correct focus on subjects and foreground plus the very nice depth of field ^_^

While taking their picture I was very afraid that the mother will feel threatened and attack me anytime! >_<

Stare Again

I love this bird! Not only that it's such a great poser, it loves to tilt its head like how a dog would do. Adorable! No doubt this is one of my best shots from the trip.

Milky Stork

Note to self: Get use to using flash next time instead of relying on natural light all the time!

The bee looked like a fly. I have no idea what this flower is called either but I like the graceful line of the petal =)

Hawk? #2

"I'm watching you!"

Hawk? Eagle? Kite? I can't tell the difference. I wish I have the luxury of unlimited internet to find out.

Pretty bird but very hyperactive, it reminds me of the bird Zazu from the Lion King =P

In the Lime Light

Say hello to my roommate. I like having him around because he eats the insects that wanders into my room =D

My brother was moving his stuff and then he went out before the job was done. I saw this teddy bear lying on the floor all lonely and it gave me an idea for this photo. But it's smiling! Does this photo fits the 'abandoned' theme? >_<

Fiery Sky

There was only a 3 minute difference with the other photo, yet the colours have changed so much. That's the thing about sunsets, every moment counts! =)

Tuesday, April 11, 2006


No kidding, the colours are real. The rays were so intense that the opposite building looked like it was shone by a big strong yellow lightbulb. Too bad my bedroom is facing the opposite direction of the sunset and it was also drizzling then so I couldn't go out to see the sun :(

That's it! The last of my street photos. Quite frankly I'm getting bored of them as well =P

Old Couple

Very photogenic looking couple, too bad I didn't have the guts to photograph them when they were looking at me >_<

Rant: I am so not used to no privacy in using the internet :-((
