Another Medal…

Another Medal…

Posted by on Oct 21, 2018 in Featured, Personal

The Photomarathon was yesterday. This time, there were a lot more participants. The registration started at 7am. My friend and I reached the registration at 7.03am, and there was already a looonnnngg queue. The event T-shirt this year was also a bit of a surprise. The brown and green camouflage pattern made a nice change from the usual red and white T-shirts. Even the material was more satisfying – a dry fit cloth that absorbed sweat better. The themes this time were a bit more challenging. There was also a special sponsor’s theme. Theme 1 – Hidden Theme 2 – Beauty of Earth Theme 3 – Fragile Special Theme – Life in the Sun There was an extra Canon camera keychain at the end.

I’ve been through a few elections, and this is the first one I feel really involved in. I cannot remember an earlier election that had a bigger turnout at such an early hour before. I saw senior citizens waiting patiently in line the whole morning; some going through two hours or more in the queue before managing to get into the voting halls. To have the whole country unified is not easy – but one man has seemingly managed to do it this time. He’s got most of the country united – against him. Tonight decides the fate of Malaysia. Let’s keep our (inked) fingers...

New Style Mamaks?

New Style Mamaks?

(Picture courtesy of IndoBowl). I still remember going to the mamak stall as a student in college. At that point of time, it was very popular. Now the old mamak stalls are nearly all gone, and disappearing fast from the market. Now if you want a simple plate of roti canai or Indomie goreng, you have to pay more at fancier restaurants. The IndoBowl opened up in Kuala Lumpur earlier this year, and was an instant hit as it offered Indomie in various cooking styles. Now it’s opened up a second branch in SS15, Subang Jaya. Why not go give it a...
