Old School Convoy TWO Serian

So after the previous Classic Car Convoy, two weeks (11.03.2012) later we all headed out again for ANOTHER convoy. I think because the previous one we didnt get to play much, as the rain was pretty heavy. No one had anychance to show off their rides :P

And after the convoy, we were a CLUB (if you drive a classic, we want you!). Looks like many clubs are getting it on in Kuching these days. Good sign!

Okay, so as per usual it started way early in the morning. The convoy gathered at the usual meeting place and was suppose to start going at 7.00am. I arrived at 6.50am. Umm.. haha! So I did not manage to capture much photos at the gathering place. 

Then we headed off towards Serian. It was a relatively sunny drive with spots of rain here an there. But a much better drive than previous trip :) I was busy running about mounting my trusty Sony DSC-T90 here and there trying to capture some footage which I had in mind since last convoy. You can view the finished 'product' at the end of the post. You can skip ahead if you do not want to read my mumblings :)

After a good hour of driving we finally reached Serian. We kind of caused a scene by showing up in such volume and variety. haha. Becaused we were parked between the only petrol kiosks there, most heavy trucks and such could not get to their fuel~ haha ! 

Moke! This ride is so cute! 

Fast bugs! Could not catch up!

Bug Bums hehehe

Silly grins :)

It was difficult to take any photos with traffic slowing down to admire all the classics on display. So after 15 mins I gave up trying >_< and headed for morning coffee at a nearby kopitiam

Then it was decided we should continue the journey to Ranchan Pool. Some decide to head back to Kuching by this point. Serian to Ranchan Pool is just a 10 mins drive away. Have not been there in ages. If I had known we were headed there I would have brought my towel and have a go in the pool!

So while everyone was busy resting under the shade. I was out trying to capture some images. Turns out I did not take as much as I imaged. =\ Or hoped.

Then we all decided to head back down to Kuching. With a slight detour unknown to many. 

We actually stopped at Siburan, community hall or something. Didn't know it was open for public I just followed in. :) Loved it because finally, out of the SUN!

Six Totoya Celicas.. Three by same owner >_< (envy)

Very mint Mini. Love the er... colorful color! Hmm.. very mint fresh! 

Golden bug!

While we were lining up the cars for a group shot. We seemed to have attracted a large crowd. People were piling in and taking posing and taking photos with the car. Haha it was a real slight.  

It was fun. Took me a while to complete the video, as I shot nearly two hours of footage, and had to compile it into under 10 mins video. So enjoy it. Play in HD if your connection is fast enough. 

Warning: The video gets very dizzy in the middle (4 minute mark on wards). Sorry about that, I was under the influence of flu medication when I was editing the video. 

So that concludes our little trip on an early sunday morning. Thanks for taking the time to read, if your interested to join us with your classic ride.

Night Shooter

As some of you may know recently a friend borrowed me a Canon PowerShot G12 for me to try out. Over the course of the week I'll be posting my results of living with the camera for 3 days.

 

Was testing the miniature effects on the camera. Essentially it speeds up the video and adds blurs either horizontally or vertically as specified by the user.

To create an illusion of miniature effect. Its decieving effective, especially when your shooting at cities from a higher vantage point. In the end as the video shows above, we decided to use it for not what it was intended. xD

It was heaps of fun. Do give me feed back on the video so Desmond continues to be my main actor xD

Drown your watch

Since my previous posting on cleaning stuff (Celica Update) I was told by Jorj that I could actualy try to use it to clean my watch.

This was the end result after drowning it in the multi purpose detergent for about 30 mins.

This time round I only put in about 1/3 of the cleaning solution and 2/3 of water.

Normally my watch is pretty clean, well as clean as I could get them. Our Malaysian weather does not help, so I'm always sweating. One of the hardest bits to clean on the watch was the strap and the small gaps in between the pieces.

To my surprise when I dropped the watch into the cleaning solution orange looking moss came growing out of the gaps and stuff. I should have taken some shots of the water, BEFORE putting the watch in. The light button had a growth which was darker shade of red close to black. I was surprised of where all the grit and dirt came from inside the gaps of the straps. Amazing.

Check out the video below also includes 10 seconds of time lapse photography right at the end.

 

Warning: If you plan to drown your watch please ensure that the seals are still working or else you may get liquid in your watch. I will not be held responsible if anything happens to it :P

 

Cheers
