Wish everybody have an enjoyable weekend and happy holidays!
Have fun and crazy, but do stay safe!
2011 on the overall wasn't a good year to me, in terms of photography, work, health, and life in general.
Learned a couple of hard lessons in life, though unfair and uncount for, but such is life itself.
It's life experience, what don't kills you, makes you stronger!
Hopefully in this new year, I want to travel more, meet more friends, improve on photography (also widen and learn more on food, sports, and landscape photography),
- Travel more
Germany, France, Korea, Hong Kong, China, Thailand, Philippines are places I had in mind to travel to, as I have friends there and major conventions like Connichi/Japan Expo which I really want to attend!
But due to getting time off from work & the cost for the travel, asia countries will be easier on me, unless somehow I can find help in lodging or any other form for the Europe countries!
- Meetup more friends
- Improve on photography (also widen field and learn more on food, sports, and landscape photography)
- Learn on videography, from pre to real to post process
- Study well and get my relevant field certs
- To be a better person
Spent sometime playing Skyrim yesterday, FUCKING UNARMED BADASS VIKING
style by Robbaz.
For those who played or don't, do watch this game commentary by Robbaz, super entertaining! [link]
Summary of the 2 trips I had last year!
Major one will be Sydney, minor one will be Kuala Lumpur.Sydney, Australia
Both trips are regrettably, didn't spend much time with friends in events or shoots.
Main Animania wasn't very fun and this year security was quite anal on photography, went for 3 hours or so for both days, decided it will be a better use of time to go exploring Sydney streets, and raiding their good food places.
Had a splitting migrane at the end of the Sound Horizon shoot with pretty *strawdoll
, that didn't even had lunch with you guys TAT
Moe and hot sisters ~GundamFamiglia
(Nad & Mad), trolling me with the identification game!
(It's ok, I still want the real alpaca/llama!)
Ate at awesome fine dining with good view at Quay, awesome Argentinian restaurant Porteno, delicous brunch at Baffi & Mo + Jeds Food Store, and authentic Naples, Italy pizzeria at Lucio Pizzeria (and many more food places!)
One thing I can say, I love the weather, scenery, FOOD
, people, and culture in Sydney, Australia!
Really wish to be able to work there, if there is anyone can help/contacts in securing a job there! (Note me for it!)Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Annual affair to Comic Fiesta convention, biggest scale ever for this is their 10th year anniversary.
Day 1 was quite a PITA for most attendees, due to KLCC management/security doing tight human traffic control, majority of the people can't enter, and have to queue for hours.
Day 2 was better on the whole.
But overall, I didn't enjoy quite as well as other years, I can't seem to find or meetup most of my friends, which is my objective of the trip! TAT
No shoots, due to unforseen circumstances, but very understandable reason.
Overall it was a trip to rest and relax from work, that's why chose to stay at Shangri-la Hotel, service and comfort was top notch!
But somehow we lack of time to really explore good food and shopping, even with 0 shoots confirm, there is like lack of time?!
Though some stupid and comical stuffs happen when I was with ~Naxhis
and Val, of course the main culprit is Val lol!
Probably due to lack of strict planning and schedule for this trip, due to stress from day job, I just really want to let go and relax.
One of trip that I really didn't do anything, other than discussing hotel and transport to Kuala Lumpur. Which is very unlike me, but reason as above.
