Movieworld
February 19, 2009

  • When I was a child, the most memorable cartoon that I loved was Toriton.
  • It was a story of an Atlantic Boy who possess a unique knife that produce a ray like the sun deep inside the ocean.
  • When I went to the Movieworld recently, I was expecting to see him (Toriton) waving his knife singing the intro-japanese song to us.
  • Only to be greeted by the western characters…sigh.
  • Anyway, let Toriton aside, we’ve enjoyed Movieworld to the max till we missed the bus. Had to charter a taxi to go back to our place. Worth every penny.
  • Enjoy the pictures!

Silhouette and Shadows at Q-Deck
February 16, 2009

  • There are not many skyscrapers built in Gold Coast.
  • Most only rise up to 13-15 floors.
  • But there’s one building called Q-One which stand tall like our own KL Tower.
  • It’s a residential building with the top tier, the Q-Deck as a lookout area where you can view the whole lot of Gold Coast clearly.
  • Enjoy the pictures.

Night Stroll at Gold Coast

  • Walking at the coastal road was a pleasant experience for us.
  • We met friendly people, nice stores and interesting atmosphere.
  • After a scorching hot day, the windy breeze made us calm and relaxed.
  • Enjoy the picts (lots of  it)

It’s flare time. I took a few shots to get the rim light as to separate my wife from the background. If you notice on the picture of the convenient store, there’s a bucket of banana. I bought a kg a day, coz it tasted so good.

People walking around the city at dawn. The road was not busy and you can’t see that many car as in our place. The bag that she was holdin marked the beginning of a shopping spree along the coastal road.

This guy is funny. He played songs that no one can understand and cracked jokes no that no one was laughing at and yet, he made his living everyday here.

Fallen brochure. There’s too many of them to flip thru, we’ve decided to stick with the original planned activities.

Finally, someone I know from the past. There were many of these plate on the pavements. This is one of the few that can be recognized.

If it’s red, shoot it. A mantra I’ve learned during the early days of my photography journey. A definite keeper for me. That boy behind my wife was trying to pose despite his mom’s refusal.
