Yeeeehhaaaaa! My Golden Retriever puppy finally arrived at my home! Abit too sudden as i was expecting her to come next month. Anyway, love her so much! She's so hyper, calm, and confident all the way.. not afraid of anyone and very very playful! Such an outgoing puppy! She's the only one in the litter, so the mom take good care of her. Now, it's my turn, and im gladly do :P

KSR @ Genting Highland

080420112654

It was the longest ride on a bike to anywhere, and yea, it was a super fun ride! We started our journey on friday noon, about 3pm from Juru, Penang. All together, 14 members if im not mistaken, 2 big bikes, Yamaha R1 and Kawasaki Z1000 join the convoy to Genting. Real powerful bike! Envy! :P

There were few complication/incidents, where member's bikes broke down, car tyre punctures.. but it was all good, everyone is safe through out the journey.

One bike down @ Bukit Merah. It was den carried up the Ford Ranger.


We stops in few places along the North-South Highway, stops at Tanjung Malim for a good dinner before heading uphill to our apartment @ Genting View Resort.

Rest @ Tapah rest area - toilet break and some snacks - the karipap is nice, or im just too hungry? lol..

We reach there about 11 smtg to 12 midnight, check in, get a good bath (it was a wet rides.. under heavy rains!! ) and riding up again to Genting Highland resorts and hotels for a good late night supper. All of us were damn hungry and we ate porridges and stuff at the casino. Some of the members gamble while some of us were hanging around till 6 smtg in the morning. It was a real cold ride downhill back to the resort!

Overall, my ori Kawasaki KSR;

Top speed, 110kmh
Fuel Consumption, i spend about Rm60-70 on Ron 97 (RM2.70/liter)
Distance travelled, almost 1000km
PG - Genting, 9 hours
Genting - PG, 5 hours

It was a smooth and good trip up, although a lil slow, and jerky on the way uphill, too cold?
But it was all good, everyone having good times up there and good rides all the way, and importantly, everyone's safe and sound throughout the journey!

THANKS guys!!

* photos are taken with Nokia N95. It was a raining season, so i dont dare to bring my dslr.. :P

Updates!

030420112647

Things been going pretty slow recently, from almost every aspect..
Let's tear it down to few diff section;

Business, Fish - Pretty slow, but business is still running. Moving everything (well, almost!) but importantly, the rack in my room is finally out! Yes, OUT! Most of the stuff now are in the backyard, a base for my small little business of fish breeding. Guppies numbers are blooming, with majorities are the Moscow Black strain, which i did see some potentials in it.. the reds, the blues.. the wildies, the tanganyikans, the amazonians, the shrimps.. pheww.. quite alot also ar.. hahaa.. thinking to slow down so that i can focus on other part of my life.

Photography - It's getting better, as i can see.. with photos coming out in local magazines, websites, and few more projects coming up, latest is shooting for CTY Aquarium in Penang, and next is a tutor for a workshop in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. So yes, i cant wait to go back there!! Was hoping to hook more jobs in the near future, hopefully i do have some skills to compete in this crazily competitive field where probably 6-7 guys (out of 10) owned a DSLR and calledthemselves 'Photographer'! How true is that? Not here to criticize but Ken Rockwell is right, professional photographer term is strictly for those who are making a living in this field, and the rest, are just amateurs..

and here's my latest achievement (sort of).. being interviewed by a local mag called Pets, where i supplied the photos for the articles of course.

Last, but not least; my life

Lotsa confusion going on.. especially on the path that i should choose and go deeper (the career part). Should i get a job and run the business side by side? I think it's a good choice but am not sure if im able to handle both nicely.. i'll shall try pretty soon!

Im actually thinking of leaving the country, going overseas and get some experiences while travelling. Still saving money for that though.. so, it's still on-going. Probably next year!

And yes, im sensing something bigger is about to change my life. Something that could bring a big effect to me, positively im sure.. i shall update you guys once it's ok. Just wish me luck! XD
