My friend, who was also my neighbour does have a gifted hand.. I was amazed by his recent carving of a monkey god statue using Kayu Raja. Help him to took some shots and sell online.
The statue were roughly 8 inch tall and 2-3 inch in diameter, selling price? Astonishing RM3K!
Kinda pricey to me but who am i to judge? :p there's always a willing buyer! Besides, it is only one in the world.
For all this while, my wish list and targets have always been fulfilled (although some are not.. haha). Every now and then, i will set a new target for myself to achieve, and for the past, present and future, here is my list :D
I got my Nikon D200 after saving money for 3 years. Previous dream camera were the Canon S2 IS, and i got it after 2 years.
Future target: Nikkor 60 micro,12-24, 24-70, 70-200 and sb900 lo! hehehe... and last but not least, the D700 or D3S!
Well... my first laptop were the Dell Inspiron 6400, but i've always dreamt of the Apple Macbook. Finally, i got my Macbook Pro 13" after 3 years too.
Future target: Higher spec Macbook Pro! :D
As for bikes, my first one were the first generation Yamaha Lagenda (100cc), then i went to Sabah, got myself a Yamaha SS2 Dual Clutch, back to Penang again and got myself a Yamaha Lagenda Z 110cc. All these bikes were basically my mum buy for me wan la... except the Yamaha SS2 (from PTPTN)
Future target: Of course the bigger capacity bike, the Kawasaki Ninja 250R!!!
How bout car? well... my first little car were the Hyundai Atoz (again, mom's). Car is still very expensive, give me 5 years and i'll get my dream car, the BMW!
Future target: BMW E46 3 Series (old car though, but i like the way it looks!)
I've never been into handphone though.. my first one were the Nokia 3315, classic phone. Then upgrade to Nokia 3120 and use for long long time! Finally, mom say it's time to change since so long already. Got myself a Nokia N95 (was once a great hp, and im still loving it.. lotsa features, main fav were the GPS of course, and the 5mp camera!, the main cons, lack of RAM :( )
Future target: So how about the future? Actually, i dont have any target for phones though... but perhaps APPLE iPhone 3GS or maybe newer model in the future? At least all are APPLE! hehe..
5. What's next ???
haha... this post is due to too much boredom at home. Every day rain... Damn sien! alittle mou liu isnt it? Am i dreaming too much? NO... dream high, and work hard to get it! I got almost all that i've dream off before, so nothing is impossible... :D

Guess what i've found today? Extremely happy.....
However, let's get to the beginning of the journey first.. I set my alarm at 7.30am, and guess what? I keep snooze it snooze it.. until 9.20am when Beh sms me.. Pheww.. had a quick preparation and off i go, until.... 2 km before Sungai Bakap Rest, there was a big lorry fell and all the loads (lots of woods) fell on the ground and other side of the highway.. Massive jam! I was just like 20 meters aways from the accident site, and i think it just happen like 5 min earlier maybe? No authority arrived yet, until 5 min later.. when i saw 2 PLUS highway fella came and remove the woods from the other side of the highway.. Everyone came down from their car to see what happen, as there was a long stand stills. It could be over few kilometer jam behind me..
Only after 30 minutes later, somehow they managed to allow traffic to pass through, using the emergency lane. Decided to do some reporter's work, 'kepo' abit.. took my D200 out and snaps! haha.. here's some of my shots.. Well, at least the driver are safe, if looking at the lorry head. Im sure it's gotta be a big shock to him, and hell lots of explanation to be made! hehe..
So, after the horrible jam.. we reach our destination. Was actually targeting Malayan/Rainbow shrimp in the area, but what i got was some goby, Betta pugnax, Forest halfbeak and some cheapo shrimps.. So we decide to venture deeper, and eventually found a place which is similar to the one in Gunung Bongsu Forest Reserve.
I was so so surprised when i saw the green patched among the mud, and i'm so excited as it really looks like some Cryptcoryne from far. Upon close inspection, i can confirm it is Cryptcoryne and if i'm not mistaken, green Barclaya sp as well.. Managed to found 2 flowers too.. and quickly get a shot for identification.
Did some sight seeing and photo-shoot too, but photos will be up later.. Reach home, i grab the Cryptcoryne of Peninsular Malaysia book and start browsing.. How excited i am when i saw a similarly looking flower as the C. elliptica flower in the book! one word, WOW! I though it was one of the rarest, until only recently when my friend, Pisces Lim found it in Gunung Bongsu Forest Reserve. Im glad and happy to found a cryptocoryne in the wild, and would be happier if it's C. elliptica! hehe...

On the 1st November, i have the chance to photoshoot my friend's car, the new Audi A4 S-line. Besides the S-line, his neighbour was also kind enough to borrow us his Audi A4 Limited Edition, which is only 30 cars available in Malaysia. It was a wonderful day, and thanks for his family for bringing me for lunch at Hotel Nikko, as well as celebrating my birthday! Thank you very much, Mr. and Mrs. Liew, Shiang Horng and his sis.
Here are some shots... :p

Time really flies... my next chapter in life just begin. I've finally resign from SLS, and come back to Penang for some big project.. It took me 3.5 hours to reach PG from KL, and yes, it was a tiring journey.. i wonder how many summons i will get! haha..
Reach Juru Autocity at around 1.30pm, and waiting for Chuppy as i'm delivering his Ruby tetras, and some nice blue shrimps.. get some, unload everything, unpack all the fishes and shrimps into the ponds. It was nice to see everything is doing well, and my Celebes Halfbeak bred! Saw quite a number of fries... so happy!
Tmr plans would be setting net cages for my ponds, need to sorts some cherry and endlers for sale soon! Then i need to head to Nibong Tebal to get some Malayan shrimps as well... wish me luck! Signing off for now, time for dinner...
