Kek Lok Si #3 - Before climbing the pagoda

There were plenty of pretty flowers around because of the Chinese New Year. The Chrysanthemum looks very fresh.

See 3 person on top? My bro, Steven and Derek went up first so that I could snap pics for them.

There was this old lady giving a donation.

The web infested Dragon Claw.

After snapping and snapping... I walked up the stairs...

APIIT CNY Celebrations 2008 #2

Here comes the rage between lions. The atmosphere was great as everyone was consumed by the brave and bold lions.

One of my favourite pictures of day. I like the depth and the message it gives.

Judging from his skill and age, he's probably an apprentice in the lion dance business, but he sure is serious and sweated the hell out of himself.

Mr.Anthony with the two lions.

p.s. the huge APIIT/UCTI banner behind. lol

She's just so cute, isn't she?

APIIT/UCTI staffs gathered together and prepared the colourful "yee sang"

The "Lou Sang" ceremony went on really great with vibrant energy coming from local and international students. A bonding event for all the students with diversed cultural background.

p.s. Anis seems thrilled with the event

The Lion peeled the oranges and then arranged 1138. 4D anyone? Haha...

I guess that pretty much sums up my posts for the celebrations.

APIIT CNY Celebrations 2008 #1

It started off with 2 lovely ladies wearing cheongsam* being the host for the celebrations.

Fact: The cheongsam is a body-hugging one-piece Chinese dress for women.

The Lion Dance crew arrived shortly after the official opening of the celebration.

A solo violin performance by APIIT's international student from China kick started the event.

Followed by this girl's solo vocal performance of a chinese pop song named 非你莫属.

To be continued with Lion Dance and Yee Sang......

PhotoHunt 98 Wooden

This picture was taken in Penang's War Museum several weeks ago. The museum is not like a big gallery of historical items but its the actual site itself meaning you're going to a place that real history occured.

There are two wooden rice pounders in the picture that was used by British prisoners of war to prepare breakfast during the World War II in the Japanese invasion in Malaysia.

In the picture is a kitchen in a British made barrack in Batu Maung,Penang. It is a defense base against marine military threat but unfortunately the Japanese managed to take over it by land attacks.

Vantage Point Special Sreening

Yesterday I went to One Utama to watch a special screening of Vantage Point. Before that, Derek and I went to Ajisen Ramen for dinner, I wouldn't want to recall how atrocious the rice meal was.(the taste is a total disaster for the fish donburi and they use cheap rice instead of japanese rice).

Collected the tickets from the advertlets booth and then met pOp,Rames,Jen etc and handed in our handphones and cameras. I guess that's the price to pay for watching a movie 2 days before the world and 3 days before America. They had these metal detectors to scan your whole body and the equipments looked pretty cool. A guard even used a infra-red camera during the movie to check the whole cinema for pirates.*ahem,u know what I mean*

The movie was exhilarating. It's a total must watch!!! I shall give a 9 out of 10.

After the movie, we had to queue up to collect our belongings and guess what? The security company is called REZEKI...what a joke?

Because of the lack of coordination, some of the bloggers fled right after the movie, causing a tremendous lack of blogging personnels around. The situation got worse when it became a bloggers gang on the left in the picture and the boss+celebrity gang on the right.

Managed to gather all of them. Picture courtesy of

Daniel Tan, model cum actor is in between me and derek.

LogicYuan, Derek, Shaun and Rames.

Dengan smashpOp pula...

the two pics above might seem very normal but pay attention to the top left corner of the two pics above. See that dude?

I interpret that he is trying to act cool? lol *just for laughs*

At last, a pic of me with the tauke of advertlets.

Credits to for the tickets.

Kek Lok Si #2 - The View,the Guard and the Beggars

Steven,Derek and my brother.

After passing through the souvenir stalls and the turtle pond, we finally arrived at the first scene of the temple.

The view is spectacular as you can see.

Tried to take some pics of the beggars. They all will try to face another direction to avoid me having a clear picture of their face.

Malaysians are not ready for impromptu street photography.

Kek Lok Si #1 - The Hike Towards the Temple

One week before Chinese New Year, my housemate from Indonesia Steven decided to pay me a visit in Penang and I played the role of a Tour Guide to take him around. A tour to Kek Lok Si was the first destination.

On the way to Kek Lok Si Temple, I dropped by at my high school and took a picture.
Chung Ling High School gave me countless memories.

Parked below for a flat rate of RM3.00 which is quite expensive.You can opt to park up the hill which cost less but climbing from the bottom is more fun.

One of the famous attraction in Kek Lok Si temple is the hundreds of tortoises. Tourists can purchase a bunch of water spinach(a.k.a. Kangkung) for RM1.00 from the hawkers around the pond to feed them.

(translation:Please do not pee here!)


This is a gigantic rock that has chinese characters carved on it.

More Kek Lok Si to come!

I'm back to Penang for CNY


I didn't teleport to Penang lah...I guess I'm having "Heroes" overdose.

LogicYuan soaring in the skies

Took a flight back to Penang...

Some say I'm trying to show off or whatever but the truth is I log on to AirAsia almost everyday to look for offer and this trip costed me RM52.00 nett which is a little less than double if compared to the dangerous buses like the incident that took away the lives of 3 bright youths. I've signed the online petition to solve the bus crashes problem. Think of your loved ones.
