USAF F-16 Thunderbirds and RMAF Sukhoi airshow

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

This wasn’t a chance to be missed! USAF F-16 Thunderbirds are coming to Kuala Lumpur for an aerial display, plus of course our very own local Malaysian RMAF Sukhoi jet in the opening act! So it was a must see!

Despite the traffic jam leading to the airbase plus I didn’t know where exactly is the entrance to the Subang airbase did give me some trouble to get there in the morning. Idil said I should go there early in the morning at 6am! Brrr… I still want my sleep! So I took my time getting there and left about 9am in the morning.

I got myself a new Canon PowerShot A720IS camera

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2007

Out with the old, in with the new. I may have lost my Panasonic Lumix camera to the pickpocketer, and with it my Hanoi photos together with it. Disappointed, yes, but life goes on and now I get to play with a brand new Canon Powershot A720IS digital camera.

Sob! I lost my old faithful Panasonic Lumix camera in Hanoi...I really needed a camera to take photos for memories, for photography and for blogging too. Without a camera, I seemed rather handicapped. So last Friday after work, I dropped by 1-Utama shopping mall to scout around for a replacement. Hari Raya Festive holiday was just over but the sales were still ongoing. I was pretty sure I could get something. My target was Canon models because it has many function similar to an SLR. (more…)

Playground/Park @ Section 14, Petaling Jaya.If I see an interesting view, take a picture! I should be carrying a proper digital camera then, ha!
