Japan Trip 2015 – Day 3 – Tsukiji-Tokyo Tower-Akihabara

On day 3 we went to a few places. First was Tsukiji Fish Market. This is the second time we been to Tsukiji. This time we went there slightly earlier than the previous time and managed to catch some actions in the wholesales areas (means there are still shops open for business). Although it is called Tsukiji Fish Market, it sells other produces beside seafood. There are sections dedicated for vegetables, fruits, flowers, and others. Unfortunately we only visited the seafood section.
For those of you who do not know, Tsukiji Fish Market will be relocated to a new area come November 2016. It is supposed to be a larger and better but one thing for sure, it will be different. If you want to experience the current market, better make a trip there before the relocation.

Japan Trip 2015 – Day 2 – Tokyo Motor Show

Day 2 of my trip to Japan was all about cars, bikes, and automobiles, and a little bit of Gundam Front.

Prior to departing for the trip, I have learned that it coincides with the 44th Tokyo Motor Show (learn more here). So without much hesitation I quickly bought two tickets online, one for meself and one for me wife. And it so happened it was on the last day of the event on the 9th of November 2015.

The motor show was held in Tokyo Big Sight. It is located in Odaiba and is a popular venue that holds all sorts of events throughout the year such as AnimeJapan, Halal Market Fair 2016, Tokyo Shoes EXPO, and MAGIC The Gathering GRAND PRIX TOKYO 2016, just to name a few.

As for the Tokyo Motor Show, it was such a huge event with loads of cars and bikes and not forgetting the beautiful and kawaii girls 🙂 Most of the cars and bikes at the show were Japanese of course with Toyota and Honda taking up most of the real estates. Here are some that deserved special mention.

Honda Clarity. Honda’s every own fuel cell car.

The all new Honda NSX.

Trip to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah


I took a few days off work in April and went on a holiday to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. It was just a short 3-days getaway. I must say Kota Kinabalu isn’t much of a city compared to the bursting scene of Kuala Lumpur but I guess that is what good about it. Its wide-open landscape and waterfronts are such contrast to the concrete jungle of Kuala Lumpur that it was quite a refreshing experience being there.

These are some of the photographs I took during the trip.

Le Tour de Langkawi 07


This year Le Tour de Langkawi was held from 2nd February to 10th February 2007. This annual bicycle race start from Langkawi island in the north and takes participants throughout almost the whole of the peninsular Malaysia and ends in Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia.

Stage 10, which was the last stage of the race was held right smack in the city centre of Kuala Lumpur. I took this opportunity to try out some photography techniques that I learned from a photography magazine. These techniques were to freeze the motion of the subject to a certain extend while still maintain some sense of motion. They are pretty simple. First, set the camera speed to a relatively slow speed. Then capture the subject while panning the camera along with the subject when it passes by. For a better freeze effect, use the camera built-in flash or an external flashgun.

By the way, stage 10 race was won by Alberto Loddo, second was Nikolai Trusov, and Maximiliano Richeze came in third. The overall champion of the entire tour was Anthony Charteau.

All the pictures were captured using my Fujifilm Finepix S9500 and a Vivitar 728 external flash. Click on a picture to view a larger version.

Floral Parade 07


Floral Fest is a monthly event held in January 2007 in conjunction with visit Malaysia Year 2007. The Floral Fest consists of numerous events including a photography contest, a florathon, and a floral parade. The floral parade is an annual event and this year event was held on 27th January 2007 in Putrajaya, Malaysia’s administrative capital.

There were 19 floats decorated with fresh and colourful flowers and 18 marching bands in the parade and reports had put the number of spectators in the 50,000 range.

The atmosphere was joyous and children and grown ups were visibly excited of the whole affair but I guess some are a bit too excited and had become an annoyance. During the parade, these overly excited people started to get over the barricades. They would craw, climb, jump, roll, and do whatever is necessary to cross the barricades to be as close to the floats as possible and this has annoyed other rules abiding spectators like yours truly and not to mention they also hindered the movement of the marching bands and floats.

Another unpleasant encounter at the parade was the invasion of photography enthusiasts. They, like the other overly excited spectators, would get as close to the floats as possible to take pictures and in the process block the view and shots of other rules abiding spectators. They do not have the common courtesy to at least get out of the way after taking their shots but would instead just hang around the floats and continue to block others’ views. These people might be professional photographers (probably self-proclaimed), they were surely using some professional gears, and the pictures they captured could very well be of professional quality but their ethnics were far from one of a professional’s.

Below are the pictures I tool at the parade. Don’t be surprise to see these ‘professional’ photographers in some of the shots.

There are 40 pictures in this post. All pictures were taken with my Fujifilm Finepix S9500.
