Was excited about the supermoon today as most ppl would be, but more important errands had to be done and i was only able to take pictures of it at 9.30pm.. almost at the end of it and that was after the heavy cloud subsided. So after taking 75 photos of it, this is the only 1 that is good enough. Till we meet again in 18 years.
As promised I have uploaded the pictures from the Sri Mutiara Photoshoot, albeit a bit late. (6 months late)
61 Pictures in altogether from the shoot taken by me. Enjoy

Late Addition : The original post is here *Sri Mutiara Photoshoot*. I managed to get in as I was asked to help in the documentation process of the new interior design of the building. The designer (Dr. Hafizah) is going to write a book about how she came up with the designs.
p/s: Sri Mutiara is the official residence for the Yang Dipertua of Penang
It was a wonderful day, managed to settle a lot of stuff here at USM, going up and down thru the bureaucracy here at USM and such. And then, I was given a surprise, a priviledge of a sort. I was invited by my friend Aiman to join him and his senior, Sarly and Junaidi. They were going to document Sri Mutiara’s interior design. So I got to do the still photography part. The interior design was done by a Dr. Hafizah and Hani (Sarly’s wife). Sarly was video taping the whole place, while I was trying to get some nice shots of the place. When I say we were given a priviledge, it truly was a priviledge because we were allowed to enter all the rooms, even the bedroom of TYT, managed to get pics of his AV room cum Office, damn it was nice. And I also got to go in the room that Pak Lah usually stays at. Hehehehe. The whole exercise was done so that Dr. Hafizah would have a documentation of the whole design, because she is going to write a book about it. And also because they wants to do a bit of a montage for the TYT. Did all of that in 3 hours, from 8.30pm til 11.30pm. TYT and family joined us later on in the night. Managed to salam Toh Puan And got to hear TYT playing a few tunes on the piano, was busy taking pictures in another room so we didn’t really get to see him playing. All in all it was tiring yet fun. Why shouldn’t it, I’m only an amateur photographer but I was invited for that hehehe I’ll try to put up the pics from the photoshoot in a few more days. If I can ever manage to find the time to put it up.
On another note, I have just got back home from Penang (my gamble to stay another day paid off with the Sri Mutiara Shoot) and here I’m happy to say that my new graphic card has been delivered. It’s dual monitor capable so currently I’m using 2 monitors. The quality is quite decent considering its an old model, don’t ask me why, but I really like old models that has been tried and tested.
p/s: Sri Mutiara is the Residence of Penang’s Yang Dipertua, also affectionately called TYT (Tuan Yang Terutama). Toh Puan is his wife lahhh..
Sunday… A friend and I went to Sungai Petani to attend a friend’s wedding, friend/boss My friend was the bestman, and I as usual the cameraman.
It was tiring :hypno: My day started at 8 am that day. Started our journey from Penang around 8.30 am. Managed to catch the groom at his house. We had to go and fetch the bride at Kuala Nerang for the “Sambut Menantu” phase. That’s another 2 hour ride. Even managed to get some shut eye during the journey
Got to the bride’s house at around 11pm and now starts my work as a cameraman…. had to get some good candid shots. So I was taking shots there and here… from the bride’s house to the Mak Andam’s place… and also at the groom’s house.
Managed to get a few good shots along the way… and had fun as well. My friend who had to be the bestman was exasperated… he doesn’t really like the attention.. And managed to catch him blushing a few times.. (if you are reading sorry ek) And I was tagging with the groom’s sister gossiping about him and the bride’s maid .. bwahaha… he never knew what was coming…
I was tired and tried a few times to go back a few times…. but everytime I was stopped. The groom’s mom would go “Eh Man tunggu la kejap lagi”, or the sister “Ai cepatnya nak balik” or worse! the groom “Potong Gaji!!!”. I only managed to get away around 5.30 pm and still the groom was saying.. “tunggu la makan lagi sekali” aiyoo… letih worrrrr… tarak larat… mau balik tidorrrr.
Finally he relented and let me and my friend go back. And his mom gave us tons of food with the admonition “3 hari takyah makan luar tu”. And something about anak yatim piatu kelaparan
Got back to my room at around 6.30pm… was so damn tired slept from 7.30 till midnight… huhu…
p/s: There were tons of lovely girls at this wedding Ekekek cuci mata!!!
Is that a bad title? pahhh it’s as good as any…. and why would I say that? The main reason is I’m supposed to be graduating this year… but I didn’t graduate this year…. why is that… oh a lecturer just decided to hold my marks and instead failed me….. all for one silly test that I didn’t go to.. Oh oh.. now u know my secret why I’ve been acting weird lately… yeah.. because I’m reminded of that stupid fact… ooo how I hate university life where lecturers have the ultimate say… and u can’t do jack about it. X(
Ok that’s done… I’ve relieved my burden…. a little at least. Heh… now on to the fun part of my life…. I’m planning to go to KL this weekend… then it was planned that me and my friend are going to have a little road trip.. just a trip back to Penang actually… with a few stops at good places to take pictures hopefully… That would calm down my nerves if that plan goes smoothly I’ve been wanting this trip for a while now… considering the fact that I haven’t seen the guy for a year as he’s been working abroad.
Hope this will give us the means to be as close as we once was.. oh btw, he’s my bestfriend My sifu, the one who let me have the use of camera for all of my stupid ventures into the photography world Hehe… that’s all
