1/72 Air Show – 2007


This was the second year running of the 1/72 Air Show held at Hobby HQ on 10 and 11 November 2007.

The 1/72 Air Show is basically a showcase of 1/72 scale model aircrafts and any type and genre. To make things more interesting, a mock airport was built to house all the aircrafts. The aircrafts on show were contributed by local modelers who are passionate about their hobby.

Beside serving as an avenue for modelers to showcase their precious models, the air show also aims to generate more interest in plastic modeling among the general public.

These photos show some of the model aircraft that took part in the air show. I personally enjoyed the air show plus the free food and I am hoping for a bigger and better one next year and hopefully I will be able to contribute some exhibits.

All photos were taken with my Canon 400D + 18-55mm kit lens.

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.

KL Skyline


Kuala Lumpur is the capital city and heart of Malaysia. It is a modern city with high-rise buildings and colourful lights and the best places to see the city skyline at night would be on top of the KL Tower or on the Petronas Twin Towers.

My office was located on the 50th floor of one of the twin towers before it was moved to another building in the city. I knew that once we move out of the twin towers, I would not be able to go up the towers anymore, as I have to turn in my access card. So before we move out, I made sure that I take some pictures of the KL skyline and below are some of the better quality pictures I had taken both on the 41st and 50th floors. As I do not carry my tripod to the office, some shots were taken handheld and some with the camera resting on ledges of windows.

All pictures were taken using my Fujifilm Finepix S9500. Click on an image to view a bigger version.
