How Far We've Come

With a wink of an eye, 2007 is coming to an end with a fresh start in 2008. Many things happened in 2007 which will be kept in my memories.

From the schooling days in the final STPM year to parties thrown by friends which all of us enjoyed to the max as well as the outings we had.

Last year, we celebrated New Year's Eve at Sanctuary Bar.

Photobucket

It was our first experience trying vodka shots till I had to down 1.5 litre of mineral water before I could drive.

Then, we celebrated Chinese New Year as well as my third sister's birthday because both events fell on the same day.

Photobucket

In the following month, it was her 19th birthday and we gave her a surprise celebration right after tuition where she found out the surprise *crap*.

Photobucket

Took a walk in my neighborhood for the first time after so many years and it had never felt that refreshing.

Photobucket

I fell in love with photography even more after that walk and even took this shot at Bukit Kiara.

Photobucket

A month later, *drum rolls* the boy turned 19th and the family gave him an early celebration! =)

Photobucket

On the 4th of June, he celebrated with his classmates at Luna Bar.

Photobucket

Nothing beats enjoying a mug of beer with friends.

Not to forget, my Hong Kong trip few days after my birthday celebration.

Photobucket


During the nation's celebration of 50 years of independence, had a complimentary stay at Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur.

Photobucket

Something spectacular happened to me on the very same day. Mummy agreed to loan me a sum of money to buy my very first DSLR. Yes! The Canon 400D which I am currently using.

On the very next day, tested out the camera with Eman at the Malaysia International Fireworks Competition (MIFC) finale at Putrajaya.

Photobucket

A week later, my first photography outing with Kinz and Eman at KLCC. We did some night shots with the majestic Twin Towers.

Photobucket

Just two weeks before my trials, I had a meet-up with Smashpop at Pavilion where he taught me a few tricks in photography.*Thanks bro!*

Photobucket

And also my very first time trying JCo donuts. The Donuts were heavenly!

Photobucket

During trials, I bought myself a 50mm f/1.8 lens. Buying a lens during your trials would only deprive you from studying. :S

Photobucket

Tested out the lens during Marcus' birthday on the next day.

Photobucket

I also celebrated Mooncake Festival with my schoolmates. They invited me to their small lantern gathering and we did have lots of fun!

Photobucket

Time flies and it was October where I attended the Octoberfest held in One Utama. Beers for RM1?!?! Heck it was even cheaper than Langkawi!

Photobucket

Photobucket

I then helped the school's editorial board to cover an event although I had already stepped down from my post.

Photobucket

Celebrated Yobi's birthday in October!

Photobucket

Followed by Ziyan's birthday which we celebrated a month earlier due to mix-up of dates. *my bad*

Photobucket

Then, it was examination month where we studied to our fullest hoping to score good grades.

Right after the end of STPM, attended Graduation Ball organized by the lower sixers with my gorgeous date. =P

Photobucket

Photobucket

Few days after graduation ball, we had to pack our bags for our Langkawi class trip.

Photobucket

Photobucket

There are just too many things to talk about but I'm too lazy to list out everything. But yes, I enjoyed every single bit of 2007. How about you?

Tonight, let us all bid farewell to 2007 and welcome 2008!

To all my readers, here's my early greetings to all of you:

"Happy New Year to all of you and I hope that the incoming year will bring you joy, luck, health, wealth and happiness. May all of you have a blossom year ahead!"

Underwater World

On the night we arrived at Langkawi, the #$%%$ agent took our deposit and did not reserve a single damn condo for us. We had to beg the receptionist to let off one of the condos which was reserved by a Singaporean couple whose flight was delayed or canceled.

Otherwise, we have to sleep by the streets under the blistering rain. Yes, it was raining cats and dogs when we arrived. And yes again, 16 of us cramped into the 2-room condo. Wonderful start we had.

In the next morning, we rented two vans and quickly checked out from the horrible condo and headed to Best Star Hotel in Pantai Cenang (Beach side hotel). Once unloaded our luggage, drove down to Underwater World.

But before that, we had lunch at the local stalls. Food in Langkawi can be nice if you know where to look for. But fried rice can be tasteless if you are looking for a quick snack. =S

Photobucket

She slept more than me and yet she was still sleepy that morning.

Photobucket

I didn't take much photos from Underwater World but there were a few interesting shots though.

Surprisingly, there was a small bird sanctuary in Underwater World. New breed of habitat?

Photobucket

Then, we reached the penguin section and there was this tunnel where we could see the penguins swimming in the water.

Photobucket

Each admission includes a 3D ride but trust me, watching the animation was a sheer waste of time.

We saw:

Sea Urchins!
Photobucket

er...Sea Plant?
Photobucket

And a lovely couple.
Photobucket

Next stop: Jungle Trekking!!

AK 6298

Last week, a bunch of friends and myself took the "Red Bus" to The Island of Duty Free - Langkawi!!

Photobucket
AK 6298 - Langkawi

This will be a short post about the experience we had while waiting to board the plane.

The Groupies

On the other hand, it was Jason, Kok Hui and Shon's first time to sit an airplane. And I could see that they were pretty excited and nervous at the same time. Even before the trip, they kept asking us about what would happen during take-off, cruise and landing.

Photobucket
The Flight Virgins

Some of them were hungry and hence bought burgers.

Photobucket
Eating burgers while waiting for your flight? Priceless..

The fries freaks.
Photobucket

*Static*
Flight Attendant: Good evening ladies and gentlemen, we are now boarding AK 6298 passengers bound for Langkawi.

Photobucket
The Long Queue

The flight lasted for an hour and we touched down at Langkawi International Airport at 10.15pm.

I will continue the story on the next post where we nearly had to sleep on the streets.

Moment of Truth

Finally, the moment all Form Sixers has been waiting for.

I have finally edited the pictures and now I present to you Graduation Ball pictures in two different slideshows.


SMK SAS Graduation Ball Part 1


SMK SAS Graduation Ball Part 2

Enjoy!

*P/s: I would like to apologize for the poor image quality in the videos because the slideshow maker compressed the photos. The photos are definitely sharper and nicer than what you see from the videos.

**P/s: If you are interested to purchase the photos, pleas email me at this address: patrickkwk@gmail.com. Should you have any questions, feel free to email me as well.

Sagano @ Renaissance KL

Warning : Tantalizing and mouth watering post ahead. Not for the hungry ones.

I just came back from a buffet dinner at Sagano - Japanese style.

Photobucket
Sagano

Located in Renaissance KL, the price for an adult entry will set you back RM 89++ excluding drinks. I simply find the food there superb since I had been there once for lunch.

Photobucket
The Ladies

Being a meat-eater *I love beef especially*, I kept on taking Beef Teppanyaki and Beef Sukiyaki.

Photobucket
Salmon and Beef Teppanyaki (Grilled Salmon and Beef)

Photobucket
Beef Sukiyaki ( Beef with Japanese Soup)

On the other hand, I did enjoy rounds and rounds of Tempura *Deep-fried snacks*.

Photobucket
Prawn and Soft Shell Crab Tempura

Besides that, eating sashimi and sushi in a Japanese restaurant is a must!

Photobucket
Sashimi and Sushi with Octopussy

I went home with a tummy. =(

Finally Home

I just came back from a night's day at Renaissance, KL. Hence, I weren't free to edit the pictures for the past few days.

I'll try to update tonight. =)

Meanwhile, I found this shirt which is an imitation of the real one. It is one of the football clubs' T-shirt.

Photobucket
Flying Dustman

I'm pretty sure the Dustman will bring victory compared to the Dutch. =P
