FInally obtained 2 pairs of long awaited Micropoecilia parae!!! I got myself melanzoma orange and blue, about few months ago, but havent took photos.. Melanzoma orange give birth to A fry :(, while melanzoma blue give birth to 8 fries in total, both give birth after i've drop the tank temperature to 24 degree celcius, is it a coincidence? hmmm.... i had them for months without a single fry, and after a week of temp drop, fries emerging... hmm...
3 of this belongs to my friend, Lim,
Hope the fries can grow up nicely and establish a population in my ponds :D

It was a total surprise for me, as i dont even know her coming until i saw member post in Shutter Asia the night before. so, again, last minute planning for a shooting with Chuppy, Fox and Andy.. I reach there around 7am as the website stated she will dock at 9am. How dissapointed i am when i saw her already docked at Swettenham Pier way earlier, missed the chance to shoot the arrival of QM2. Anyway, she was there, and she looks gorgeous and stunning, and not to mention, she is HUGE and GIGANTIC! haha.. the biggest ship i've ever seen in my life. Thanks for coming to Penang, it's like an opportunity in the life time to see her with my own eyes!
The light, and weather doesnt seems to be satisfying though... although early morning still good, with some clouds and nice sun rays.. managed to capture few HDR shots. I walked from Esplanade, up to the Light House, and then to Swettenham Pier, and to Tanjung City Marina to find the right spot, right angle.. but man, it's hard. Furthermore, we are restricted from entering the pier, if not, we will be able to get more closer shot of the magnificient Queen Mary 2.
Im really glad though, and it's worth waking up in the early morning at 6, while riding my bike in the darkness to get to the jetty as early as possible, but then, she was way earlier than me :(
Anyway, here's some HDR that i took.. enjoy!
Tanjung City Marina
and here she is, the biggest, largest, widest, longest ship i've ever seen in my life! Breathtaking..
Last saturday, on Thaipusam, we decided to go for a fishing trip, with Andrew and his wife, his fren, and Helven at Teluk Bahang. I didnt realise there was a chalets build on the floating fish farms for anglers. The rate was acceptable, RM100 per chalet for max 3 pax. Each chalet with bed, sink, chair, small kitchen, fan, lights.. most of the basic utilities
You have to call in to book in advance, as it is always full, particularly in the weekends. Wonder why? haha.. you will see later below.. Anyway, you can call Oo1, 012-473 3118 for booking and when you are there at the jetty, they will come and take you to the floating fish farm with a small boat.
We had alot's of fishes particularly in the evening, at only one spot, right in front of my chalet! You can practically caught one by the minute! haha..
I caught quite a number of fishes and fish species too, from Mangrove Jack, red Mangrove Jack, giant Pufferfish, Orange Spotted grouper, some small fishes, Tasar, and few more while my friends even managed to get octopus, cuttlefish, Scat, and one big fish... im not sure what species but it looks like sun fish cousin.. :p
Here's some of our catches!
This is Helven and my catch, and there's another 2 box similar to this.. imagine how many fishes we can get in just an evening... Tempting? go try your luck there... maybe you can get bigger fish :D
