Hi guys, I lost my Celcom Nokia phone model 1200, I need sponsors to donate for me to get a new 1200... please#$%^&* Just Kidding, well I really did lost my phone, although its just a cheap one that nobody would look at when you answer the call, yet the contacts in them are far more valuable than you can imagine. I have many contact list and some would be hard for me to retrieve. Even if I do have a second phone for my Digi number, there are still contacts in my celcom that is unavailable in my digi number. So.... For you guys who called me and I couldn't identify you.... forgive me... I lost my phone and your number.
Saturday afternoon, 6th June, 2009. A girl drowned accidentally at a river in Nahaba Village,Kota Belud while attending the Sabah Wide Adventurer Camporee. This is probably one of the worst incident that ever happened in the Sabah Wide Pathfinder Camporee, yet no one should be blamed on it cause its an accident. The funeral service was carried out at Kapa Church, Tamparuli. 2 days after the incident. Family members, friends and even Pathfinder and Masterguides members attended with their respectful uniform. I was there as a Masterguide giving my last respect. Although I wasnt there when the incident happened, but the family and the victim herself deserve the respect by her fellow pathfinder members.

With about 6 months of experience with Nikon and adding accesories into my equipments list, I am beginning to realize that travel bags are now insufficient to accomodate the list of stuff I always bring with on a shooting session. I need to have a new sufficient case/bag for my stuff!
My first reliable bag was my Think Tank Photo Speed Demon Beltpack. Loving it for the fast access to my carry on equipments and ability to hold your other equipments/lens close to your waist while exchanging lens makes this Beltpack a convenient gadget to carry your stuff. At that time I was still with my Pentax K10D with few lenses. Slowly my Pentax lenses list grew up and soon I realized I need another space. I do have numerous bags to hold on my tools such as my Acer laptop, cleaning tools, and some cheap lenses, but they are'nt good enough to protect them without paded surface.
After following the Nikon route and getting myself some equipments, I noticed that I need extra care for my equipments. Its like giving the finest care to your Ferari.

Have you ever thought of how I really looked like????? (laughter), for those who added me in their
It has been almost 11 years since I first got a hold on a SLR. Back then it was just a Pentax fully manual focus camera, with manual shifting of the film,rotating the focus ring,aperture,zoom, ASA(also ISO), shutter speed... Yeah,those where my stoneage days in photography.
So where was I... Right now,with some highschool knowledge in arts, certificate in arts, and an imaginary visualization of pure reading and experience knowledge in arts (photography), I am now... I could say,still far away from the desired level.
I am BLESSED with:
1. D700 + battery pack (which i love MOST for its high iso low noise features)
2. 24-70 f2.8 (for its excellent sharpness and brilliant focusing)
3. 70-200 f2.8 (for its zooming capabilities while retaining sharpness and focusing performance)
4. 50mm f1.4 (my first Nikon lens which helped me a lot in getting used with my D700)
5. 3x SB900 flash (for its excellent TTL performance)
6. Few packs of MAHA 2700 and Immedion 2100 batteries.
7. Apple Macbook Pro 17inch (No virusses and blue screen eversince)
8. Western Digital External 650GB (gona add the 2GB soon)
9. 2x Manfrotto Monopod
10. 1 studio background tripod set (which I can use the 2 stand as flash stand)
11. A Benro tripod
12. Canon IP4680 (love it for CD prints, Thumbnail Proof prints, Letters.. etc
13. A Reflector
14. 2x Flash Umbrella + Speedlight Softbox
15. Sekonic LightMeter
16. other DSLR cleaning tools
What I'm adding in my prayer wishlist which I PRAY to get soon:
1. Epson 4880 pro A2 printer
2. 2TB hardisk (or the 4 bay HD slot intelligent casing)
3. A REAL website with ONLINE PROOFING.
4. 4 strobes for my dream studio (with a battery pack unit)
5. A second Body (D300 coupled with Tokina 11-16)
6. 1 extra 16GB Sandisk Extreme IV CF card
7. urm.... foremost, a working station and time to manage it.
8. Wacom Intous
9. Monitor and printer profiling tools.
10. Well,I wish I can HAVE IT all... but the ones listed here are the vital things for my career plannings.
11. 1 Apple Cinema display, perhaps aa 23inch or more.
I'll strive to do it. I actually planned to launch a new website + blog this year, but seems like I'm economically down at the moment, money is being invested elsewhere. But hopefully, I believe God is very much pleased with anyone who always acknowledge Him despite the busy schedule and hardwork. as the Spanish says "por la gracia de Dios"... I will do my best, and leave God the rest...
Hope you enjoy viewing my photography works that I have carried out so far.

Here are some of the gown designs that were being displayed on the fair. Beautiful models showed off these dress that and make the whole environment more happening. There is 1 that I feel quite... unimpressive. Others were well crafted, but not for this one. Well,not to mention which one, you find it yourself.
By the way, credits should be forwarded to

I might have missed the Kaamatan Festival at KDCA,(not through television) but I didn't miss the bridal fair at 1 borneo. I know many people have been asking me "where you there..?" "did you take photos of..?" But I have to say that, I dont really like gathering in crowds, especially huge crowds. There are lots of possible danger in it-
1. Pick Pocket (one I fear most).
2. Breathing problems.
3. Possibility of disease transmission.
4. Humid weather-really uncomfortable.
5. Its not that I'll benefit from going there aside from any of the above.
Sorry if you are offended, but do know that I wont be doing things that I don't feel worth doing. Ofcourse I'm not the person who trashes our tradition, I love my culture and I am PROUD of it, its just that there are places where I am not comfortable with.
Frankly, I'm really obsessed with getting good quality air, thats why I always avoid places where polution are highly rated.
So what did I do with my time then? Ohw,I went to the bridal fair in 1 Borneo, you know I missed a lot of good events this year that focus on my industry- the wedding photography industry. Thus, my presence there will help me get an insight of the trends and how other people describe their art and craft.
I'll post the wedding gown photo's after this, do view it and let me know what you think about it.
Ok,guys,I admit it that I'm very slow these days to update my blogger pals who sometimes take their time to view my bloggie. Thanks to those who do come and see whats up in my works. Just to share with you a few shots of a couple I worked for dating 3 months ago. They are really brilliant couples I must say, producing good shoots of them is not much of a hassle with their good personalities.
The event took place somewhere around Putatan area and the reception was held in Tabung Haji, Kota Kinabalu. This is really a grand wedding as not only ordinary people where there, but even a list of our state leaders where present to respect and bless the newly wed. It was my priviledge to photograph their once in a lifetime moments. Kudos.
