Touristy areas in London

During my few weeks in London, I spent 1 day of every weekend as a day to go capture some shots.

Tower Bridge. I purposely went there at night to capture some night shots. I dont have my tripod with me.. else I think I should be able to capture a better one.

Trafalgar Square. I walked aimlessly from the Buckingham palace and reached this famous place. ( All the touristy spots in London are actually closeby to one another. So you can actually walk to all these places by foot and cover it in a day. :))
The tower clock @ Big Ben. This is another famous place which tourist shouldn't miss.

I'm BACK with my new journey into Photography

I just got myself a DSLR camera early last month. It was sort of a gift to myself. For what purpose? Hmm.. Say.. for being worked so hard for the past 5.5 years in my ex company? Haha.. a lame excuse I know. :D here goes my journey into the photography world.. :)

I do travel quite a bit and was thinking that it's quite a waste not to capture nice pictures. That doesnt mean compact cameras do not do the job but it just doesnt give the result which I've wanted...

So, here I am at London. Will be here for 4 weeks and that means 4 weekends for me to go around and take some pictures. Kinda good way to spend time and not use money eh? Else I'll be crazy over SHOPPING only... haha

It's spring time now in London.. so you can see lotsa flowers. Enjoy the tulips below. :)

Mount Buller

Everyone worked hard for July's month end closing. We worked even on a Saturday. The Finance Manager promised to take us to Mount Buller if we were able to 'close July' without any issues and WE DID!

It was a long drive from Melbourne. Finally, after 3 hours of driving, we reached Mount Buller. We rented a ski jacket and a toboggan. I regretted not renting boots. It was freezing cold and my shoes & socks got all wet.

It was raining and windy. We had no choice but to take the chairlift up to the peak instead of the gondola due to the bad weather.
Midway up, we saw people skiing down the slope. Nice! How I wish I can ski just like them. :D

It was all white up at the peak. Too bad it wasn't snowing. Stayed outdoor for a while, took some pictures before heading in to the cafeteria to 'defrost' and enjoy a cup of Hot Chocolate!

Some photo session :-
After that, we headed to another area to play the toboggan ride. It was fun!

Melbourne - City of lights

I was in Melbourne for 1.5 weeks but only managed to visit the city only once at night. So if you ask me to describe Melbourne, I'll say it's a City of lights.

I parked near the Crown casino and we walked along the Southbank to the Federation square and back.

Took many pictures along the way as it was a beautiful night. Enjoy the pictures below! :)

Desc : The view opposite southbank. On the other side of the riverbank.

There were many street performers that night. It was very different as compared to Sydney. The mood, the feel.. It gives me a feeling that the city is aliveee even after 7pm....... :)

Desc : A lady Juggling fire torches

Desc : These 2 guys are good and cute too. *ehem* They should join Australian Idol.
Desc : Romanticc..... The Australian version of "Kenny G" :)

A new life

I've not blogged for a few months now.. Did not know where to start... So ended up not writing anything.

In hope to boost up the mood of writing again, I've decided to give my blog a new life. :D

The F1 season is back and Malaysia was the 2nd race in the season. My friend was going to Sepang to watch the Grand Prix and he'd asked me along. Why not! :)

It was a cloudy day. It was forecasted that it will rain in the evening and that was the time of the race. It would be an interesting race to watch if it rains. The crowd was massive. You can see many people dressed in red and some were carrying red flags. Why red? Ferrarri is red. That showed us how many Malaysian Ferrari supporters out there.

There was an autograph session going on when we reached. Can't remember who the driver was though.

My friend rented a 'Kangaroo' Tv. It's actually a small mini tv which delivers live video, audio and data to spectators over a F1 race. I would say it's a MUST-HAVE if you intend to watch the race live. It feeds you with so much information regarding the race.

The driver's parade before the start of the race.

More pictures.

In the midst of the race, it started to pour heavily. It was getting exciting.. I screamed every time I saw a car skidded. (We were sitting in front of the last cornering of the race. That was the sharpest cornering in the track) So afraid other cars would knock onto them. The race had to stop half way due to the bad weather. :( Not enough of it though..

Anyway, I enjoyed the race alot. I was never before a fan of F1. Thanks to my friend who introduced me to this, I guess I've to change my statement. I'm starting to like it now. :) I'll catch the next race which is in China on TV. hehe :)

Sydney - One day sightseeing (Part 2)

Queen Victoria Building

Some history of the QVB Building

The Queen Victoria Building, now affectionately known as the QVB, was designed by George McRae and completed in 1898, replacing the original Sydney markets on the site. Built as a monument to the long reigning monarch, construction took place in dire times, as Sydney was in a severe recession. The elaborate Romanesque architecture was specially planned for the grand building so the Government could employ many out-of-work craftsmen – stonemasons, plasterers, and stained window artists - in a worthwhile project. Originally, a concert hall, coffee shops, offices, showrooms, warehouses and a wide variety of tradespeople, such as tailors, mercers, hairdressers and florists, were accommodated.

Over many decades, change saw the concert hall become the city library, offices proliferate and more tenants move in, including piano tuners, palmists and clairvoyants. Drastic 'remodelling' occurred during the austere 1930s and the main occupant was the Sydney City Council. As recently as 1959 the Queen Victoria Building was threatened with demolition. As it stands now, in all its glory, it is testimony to the original vision for the building and the superb craftsmanship of the artisans who put it all back together again

Darling Harbour

After visiting the QVB, I just walked like 10 minutes to Darling Harbour. It's a nice place to take pictures, relax and chill out. There are many cafes and restaurants nearby. Many kids will be playing with water at the area below. From the picture, you can see Sydney tower at the far end too.
