Happy New Year 2011

Happy New Year everybody!!!

It’s incredible how time passes so fast. I can still remember clearly what I wrote for my 2010 new year post exactly 1 year ago.

2010 has been a year with ups and downs for me. But at least I have fulfilled my wish by travelling to 2 foreign countries — Hong Kong and Cambodia.

Now let’s summarise my 2010 in 4 quarters.

First quarter

Things were good during the first quarter. I was very much into landscape photography.

Taiping Lake Garden.
Harvested padi field at Sekinchan.
Lighting strikes somewhere around KLCC.
Beautiful sunset with blue and purple sky.
Lanterns on the highest tower.
The 2nd Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2010.

Then I had the most wonderful birthday celebration with my closest friends at Hard Rock Cafe.

Celebrated my 27th birthday with a bunch of best friends.

And I also went for white water rafting for the first time. It was really fun.

Second quarter

Things started to change during the second quarter. I started to be less passionate about life until a certain point I realised that my life was a total mess.

But I wasn’t feeling sad or down or anything. Yeah, I wasn’t feeling anything. Nothing will excite me during that time. Until one day I threw myself off my bed and tried to cleanup my mess.

Luckily things got better and that’s when I ran my 3rd 10km marathon.

Third quarter

Things started to get better during the third quarter.

I started to take pictures again after I bought a new lens and speedlight.

My new Nikon SB-900 Speedlight and Tokina 11-16mm F2.8 DX.
Pavilion Kuala Lumpur and the fountain.
A picture taken at Putrajaya lake.
My first indoor photography with a teddy bear.
Starcraft II light painting.
My first interior shooting.
Another indoor photography shooting still object.
First pre-wedding shooting.

And I went to Hong Kong for the first time! It was such a wonderful time!

I visited Hong Kong for the first time.

And not forgetting to mention I won a brand new iPhone 4 from Maxis! See, things were getting better and better near the end of 2010.

Fourth quarter

When it came to the last quarter of the year, things got pretty busy. I was so busy until I didn’t have much time to blog.

First, I ran my fourth 10km marathon at Nike City 10K 2010.

Then I visited Cambodia for the first time. It was such a memorable and meaningful trip.

And one last thing which was one of the reasons I didn’t blog much and that’s my pet project StageKL.

I had the concept since early 2010 but not until the end of the year I decided it was time to make it a reality.

Happy New Year 2011

2010 has been a great year for me and I have a feeling that 2011 will be an even better one.

No new year resolutions again this time. But I will try my very best to make my 2011 the most awesome year ever.

Happy new year once again and wish you all have a prosperous and wonderful 2011!
