Charcoal factory in Kuala Sepetang.

I’m so completely lacking of blogging urges these days it’s not funny. I’m a pathetic excuse for a blogger…people should just call me booger instead.

Anyway, I went to Perak/Penang for Shutter Asia‘s 2nd Anniversary. It was a fun trip except that I was completely immobilised on the 2nd day due to menstrual cramps. Yeah, I guess you don’t have to know that but it’s my boog.

On the first day, we went to a really picturesque charcoal factory in Kuala Sepetang near Simpang. It was my first time seeing how charcoals are made, it’s pretty fascinating. I took about 80 pictures, but they mostly turned out crappy. I really need to practise -_-

Here are some of the decent ones:

#3 – Old man chilling out. He’s worked there for the past 40 years.

p/p/s: Some were not watermarked because my batch action fucked up and I was too lazy to fix it.

What a wonderful week!

My boyfriend had almost a week off so we’re off to my parents to relax (read: play with my pup), celebrate my Dad’s 50th birthday and play with my pup.

We went to a park called Taman Pudu Ulu, which was nice and clean with plenty of jogging paths and grass. Sisi pooped at the first sight of green, which was a surprise cause she had already pooped at home. Luckily I had some rough papers, so I used them to dispose off the stink nuggets. I used to agree with the notion that pets should never be brought to any public area because they tend to be dirty and disruptive but I’ve come to realise that it’s NEVER the pet’s fault. As a dog lover friend had told me, there’re no bad dogs only bad owners. You know, just like naughty, kurang ajar children…it’s always the parents’ fault.

I really hope that more pets owners will be more responsible for their pets especially when it comes to hygiene, safety and sound control then we won’t see anymore “no pets allowed” in public places! Pet owners unite! BRING YOUR POOP BAGS PEOPLE! Hehe.

Here are some pictures we took at the park with my D70s, published here straight from the cam with no processing. Some were taken by the boyfriend and some by me. Dayum the power of 85mm…superb sharpness and sweet sweet creamy bokeh hmmm hmmm. I wish I could post all of them here but I shall refrain lest I get dubbed the Dog Lady again.

Oh well, not like you’re not already expecting to see me drop off from the blogosphere and live happily ever after with my pup and family :)

Today was family day as well as my Dad’s 50th birthday. I had a great time bringing Sisi out today because she’s gotten used to the carrier I bought her. In fact, she loves it so much it’s becoming a sort of sanctuary for her. I was afraid that it was too big for her but she’s grown to fit in it nicely. Here are really cute pictures of her sticking half her sleepy head out of the bag. Taken with N82. I know, I know stop posting pictures of Sisi right? Never, buddy.

I can’t wait to go home and see her again. Just blogging this is making me grinning from ear to ear. I can’t decide what to get next, a mini schnauzer, yorkie or another shih tzu? Probably a male yorkie cause shih tzu is asian and yorkie is a brit…heh heh heh (private joke – and even if you’re able to decipher this private joke you don’t have to state it out word by word in the comment section, it’s not a popquiz dumbass).

Phuket, Thailand – Day 5

DAY 1
DAY 2 Part One

DAY 3 Part One
DAY 3 Part Two
DAY 4

The last day of my Thailand trip! Our flight was in the late afternoon so we spent the morning visiting another nearby resort that belonged to Millennium. Millennium Patong Resort is a laidback version of Millennium Patong Hotel. It doesn’t mean that the hotel is any less luxurious though.

I especially love the floor to ceiling mirror in the room.

i <3 me.

Relatively famous.
I like relativity.

After the hotel tour, I sneaked in a swim at my hotel’s pool before packing. Put on the 250 Baht dress I bought from a Patong trader and left for Phuket International Airport.

Our flight was of course delayed for about an hour and because of that I bought an overpriced book to keep myself amused.

By the 5th page, it was boarding time. Damn -_-

Well, I had a wonderful time in Krabi and it’s all thanks to See Tho :)
