It has been a week since that unfortunate incident, and it is time to move on. It was extremely shocking to see how much response I was getting from almost everyone around me, some even outside the country, from the phone calls, to mass-sms-es, emails, and even in person !! I am truly moved by the overwhelming reaction, but somehow it feels very wrong. I have never been contacted/sought after by this MANY people all together in such short period of time before, heck, not even on any of my birthdays !! I only have my beloved friends, colleagues and you beautiful blog readers out there to thank for. What would I be without you guys? Heh !!
There was this firework competition event thing happening over the past few weeks, and I made it to the finale which was last night. I went camera-less, as expected, but it does not mean I have no pictures to show you guys !! The reason why I went to this particular firework display which was performed by an Australian company: Howards and Sons, was because they absolutely rawk big time. I have watched their firework display twice at Perth Royal Show, and once earlier this year during the Australian National Day at Western Australia. They never failed to astonish me every single time I catch the public shows, and this is one of the closest thing I could get from Perth in KL.
I went with Chun Chow and Wendy, and Chun Chow was snapping away the pictures with his Olympus E300. Though the camera is considered rather old by today's standards, but you have got to admit it still has the ability to produce such awesome shots. There you go, the power of Olympus for those of you non-believers. Of course, a huge part of the credit also goes to the photographer, Chun Chow, who has been one of the main stage players in guiding me through photography over the years. if you do think the pictures are good, don't forget to leave some kind remarks for him !! Without him, you guys have nothing to see here ok??
The firework display was nothing short of breathtaking. It was not as grand as the one I witnessed in Perth earlier this year, but hey, seriously, the way they synchronize the timing of the shots and the arrangement of the amazingly wide varieties of fireworks were truly remarkable. If they are to come to Malaysia again anytime soon, I would definitely try to make it for their performance again.
That is all for now. Updates here will be one a slower pace from now on, but I will make every effort I could to keep it alive.
