Would you believe me if I tell you that I have met the infamous one and only Madame Tussaud? Well I met her lifelike wax figure in Madame Tussaud’s Museum Hong Kong. Here she is, eternally smiling for us while holding one of her works.
I hope you enjoy her smile. See you around!
Last March I stopped short on my posting from my Hong Kong travel. Consider this as the beginning of the sequel. <grin>
The Wetland Park Light Rail Station is located in the Northern Territory, and one of the easiest way to reach the beautiful Wetland Park by public transport. You need to change MTR in Tin Shui Wai (TSW) Station; walk around 15 minutes before reaching the Light Rail platform. Hop in to train number 705 and enjoy the ride. It is a circular train, which means it will go round and round and round, so if you miss the station you can always wait for the second round, or the third round, or the fourth round (if you have the time). But I doubt you will miss the station, for the Wetland Park Station name is clearly displayed and likely most of the passengers of the train will alight here, so you can watch the crowd. The circular train runs both ways, with the other route numbered 706.
It was a cold afternoon, but the sun was shinning beautifully. I took a quick three handheld shots using my X100s AE bracketing feature with 1 stop interval, and did a composite of the three using Photomatix.

From our 69th Independence Day celebration, a favourite game – panjat pinang, i.e. climbing a heavily lubricated Areca trunk to get various rewards. And a quote befit the activity from Henry Ford, “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.”
Have a good week ahead!
I got up too early, so I strolled by this small uncharted marina near Harris Resort Waterfront Batam, Indonesia, and took a few frames. This one is a composite of 3 frames with 2 stops interval, handheld. Have a great weekend all!
A quick post of the beautiful Eurasian Curlews (Numenius arquata orientalis) -Gajahan Besar in Indonesian- over-wintering in northern Bintan. Their wingspan were around 1m. These are the same flock with those I posted before. Take a look for more pictures and description from my earlier posts here.
Thank you for stopping by and have a great week ahead!
Everybody was very exited the moment John announced the news. Those who know him know exactly that the time is ripe, and everybody was very eager to know who the lucky woman was. I believe similar situation was also found by those close to Effy. John and Effy chose white and green as their wedding colours, and I just loved the combination. The wedding itself was done in a heritage 1925 built church in Bandung – the GPIB Bethel church. The garden reception in the evening was phenomenally set-up.
And as the tunes originally by John Secada and Rebecca Holden filled the air, we all believe they are now filled with joy, no more tears or sorrow….
…Come with me, and we will fly together
to a place, where we can love forever
Take my hand, and we will see tomorrow
only joy, and no more tears or sorrow…
Here are snippets of the wonderful occasion. Thank you John and Effy for allowing me to capture your lovely moments!
Getting the dark-red stigmas and yellow anthers of this hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis) on its stem proved to be difficult due to the constant breeze of wind. So I plucked one flower bud, kept it overnight in a candle holder with small amour of water, and when it bloomed the next morning I brought it to my backyard. Not only it is more steady, I can also easily manoeuvre my camera and the position of the flower. Hmmm… I should have added more fill light to enhance the yellow colour… maybe next time.
Thank you for visiting this page and have a blessed Sunday!
