Then down to Kuala Lumpur, finally went down to Sepang International Circuit. Yes there were cars incoming!!!

Then off to Tokyo, Japan for a few days. Very nice city, must go back to visit some day!

Me being a tourist. 

Actually Ive been back for over a week. But was kinda busy with stuff, finally got time to start sorting out the photos. I'll try my best to process my photos and publish them. Hopefully wont take years to do that :)

Till then, Cheers

You would probably notice that the photos are smaller in size compared to my recent posts, that is because I have completed this album for a while now before I decided to upsize the images.

This was the lucky car that was getting a wash from the lovely Vanes. Its smiling.

We managed to secure an actual carwash for the shoot. Thanks to Mickey's friend for the place. He lost a whole day of business just for us!

It was the first time I tried to use constant lighting. Kinda challenging, and the color tempreture was pretty warm. Which looked fine on the camera LCD. Maybe I was just not used to it.

I know what your thinking, bubbles! Mickey brought along his toys. A bubble making machine! How cool is that, no more blowing or waving things about to make bubbles.

Time to wash the car! hehe!

After washing the car another monster car came in, the Nissan GTR34. Because of wind we closed all the shutters of the shop to play with the smoke. End up it was everywhere, making the photos look as if it had high noise, when actually it does not =.=

the day before

Today started off with the noisy city coming to life early… and when the sun shine on my face, it was time to get up. After mucking about for abit finally got out of the hotel to see this

Smokes coming out of Maybank HQ, in Jalan Tun Perak. I was wondering why people were taking photos and pointing upwards when I was looking down at the streets from my window. Hmm.. the building was behind where my window was facing. Only when I went downstairs and looked up did I know what was going on. So, I too took a shot at it =D

It was only a drill. The people inside were at mamak driking coffee. =)

So after all the excitement early morning. We went down to Petaling street. People were just starting their day.

We actually wanted to eat some dim sum. But the famous dim sum shop was not open. So we went into the back alley, to Jalan Mardas and ate some yong tou fu and chee chiong fun.

After walking about in Mid Valley for a while decided to go makan lunch. We went to OHSushi. I have the some what entrance pic on my phone. Have not transfer it,maybe when I get back to home town. Probably because it was lunch time the place was packed. And we had to wait about 20 mins before we got our table.

picture and actual may differ, is disclaimer not printed!

green tea is good for health, they saylooked way nicer in their menu~this was goodthis was delicious! Sanma fish (サンマ / 秋刀魚)CNY Decor at Mid Valley

After that we left to go back to our hotel by KTM train and monorail.

train.. choo chooo!!!Back at the hotel, showered a bit then left for Sungei Wang area.. by foot! And because my sister was late I went off to Low Yatt Plaza to look for some stuff for a friend, and ended up getting myself some memory upgrades! Pics already taken, but I think will post some other time.

I was looking for the ATM and I called a friend where was the closest one, as it turns out he was also in Low Yatt Plaza. What a coincidence. He was there to buy power supply units for his office.

Hi Raywalking back via jalan alurWell that is it for now. Need to rest, the stupid 3g connection have delayed me posting and sleeping an hour earlier! I need to wake up early tomorrow!

Big day! Meeting Joe!

trip 02 in 2008

yeah.. just came back from a short and hectic work trip to Kuala Lumpur.

I went on Saturday (27-01-2008) by AirAsia and came back last nite on (29-01-2008) by MAS. I actually wanted to go over on Saturday, but I had a wedding reception to attend.

Day 1 (Sunday)

Me and my colleague Darren flew from KCH, and another (Liong) flew from Miri. After reaching LCCT, we waited for Liong and then we headed down to Eastin Hotel.

After checking in, I went to 1Utama with Siew Pao and Carey. Where I spent about RM 750.00 on clothing and shoes. :P yeah, never did I buy so much worth in one afternoon... in about 3 hours time. Oh well... there was a lot of sales going on, the items I bought ranged from 10% - 50%. On top of that, Siew Pao had like all discount cards to nearly all the shops there!! >.<" oh well. Then Jia Yong picked us up and we headed for dinner at Asia Cafe (?) I think thats wat its called, near Taylors collage Sunway area. Then it was back to the hotel! zzzzzz!!

Day 2 (Monday)

Next day it was work work work. We had a full day of training till about 4 pm. We got off early as we were missing some components so we could not do a hands on. =] We went to dinner with the bosses at a restaurant called Bali. Whole team turn up, about 30 over persons. Oh and thanks to Raymond who turned up with the Flash Diffusers, which we had gathered for purchase amongst our photo kaki's.

After dinner a few guys and our operations manager went to get some beers at Hartamas. Incidentally met his friend and my gosh, they sure like to drink. Yes~ I admit, I puked. Heaps! =.= I still dont understand, fun mey like dat.. haha anyways got back to the hotel just before midnight, and crashed till about 2am, where my room mates from JB and PG came back. Chatted a bit and zz..

Day 3 (Tuesday)

I started the day with a hangover. Had no appetite for breakfast, had half boil eggs, then we were in training / meeting whole morning. zzzz.... boringz.... den had lunch at 2pm. back to office and meeting some more.

Our flight was at 8.40pm. So we arranged pickup from our hotel at 6pm. Luckily we hired a bigger taxi, those MPV type. As one of other region's rep didnt book and we had extra seat for him. But his room mate, was going to LCCT had not made arrangements, he had no ride. So I asked our taxi driver to call his office to arrange for one for the stranded rep. The taxi was there in less than 5 mins as there was one nearby. I guess it was not his luck cos the taxi picked up the wrong passenger. Well to cut the story short we got him another taxi which arrived much later, and in the end, he didnt make the flight and had to stay overnight. Sad.

So we checked in. Had dinner, hanged around a bit and went to the boarding area. When I approached the area, I saw a familiar face. Tze Lei, was there reading a novel. haha. She was in PG then KL and was going back to KCH. We chatted a bit and boarded the plane. We had a delay as there was 2 missing passengers. And the crew had to unload their luggage. =] Another missed their flights. 1 hour 45 mins later we were back in KCH!

My dad came and fetch me from the airport. And when I got home there was a package for me. Hmmm... curious... upon closer inspection it was a package from JPS (Jabatan Pengairan & Saliran). Few months back I joined one of their competition introduced to my by Alex.

*Eh? JPS?*

So I open it up to find a beach towel and certificate.

*who is GARALD LIM ??*

Oh yay... they got my name wrong. hahaha, it seems I have won the consolation prize for the Pertandingan Fotografi persona Pantai Malaysia. Check out the website at http://photo.water.gov.my. I guess its better than nothing. But why didn't even notify the winners at all. No letters of notification, how was the photos selected? by whom? where is it now? what will happen to it?

Oh well at least I got a free beach towel~ w00t~!!!
