Jangan Pandang Belakang

farah low-key, originally uploaded by nadi0.

not that i'm saying that the subject in the portrait looks like a hantu...hehe. totally not.

i just came back from watching the much anticipated local horror film, Jangan Pandang Belakang. Everybody was too scared to watch it alone, so me and a few friends got together tonight especially to watch this film.

here's my review:

It's overrated, and wtf????

Thursday, May 24, 2007


finished watching the season finale of Heroes this morning, in my attempt to stay awake until it's time to get to work. The words of Mohinder Suresh at the end of the episode was very touching...i'm sure this paragraph is in blogs all over the world this week.
"we dream of hope, we dream of change, of fire, of love, of death...Then it happens, the dream becomes real. And the answer to this quest, this need to solve life's mysteries, finally shows itself , like the glowing light of a new dawn.

so much struggle for meaning, for purpose, and in the end we find it only in each other, our shared experience of the fantastic and the mundane. The simple human need to find a kindred, to connect, and to know in our hearts that we are not alone."

i am so going to be a zombie at work today.

...and Inzaghi scores....!!!

not that i watched the game. i went to check the score 85 minutes into the game, and found out that Inzaghi scored both the goals for Milan. yeehooo!

not that i follow the Champions League...hahaha.

I remember my college crush on Inzaghi, which made me took Italian for 2 semesters, in hope that the day I get to meet him in person, I will be able to at least have a civil conversation with him.

not that i ever got to meet him, but the A's i got for the two italian courses definitely bumped my CGPA at that time.

ok...i better go to sleep.

buona notte.

forza Inzaghi!

sunset @ Bukit Permai

vertical sunset @ Bukit Permai, originally uploaded by nadi0.

- one better sore eye
- one useless trip to the shopping mall
- one failed attempt to find the Ampang Lookout point

- one goal in life achieved.

driving through the rush hour today trying to look for the Ampang Lookout Point as described by Fariz brought me here, the Taman Bukit Permai Lookout Point. It didn't look promising at first, and just as i was about to get back into the car, the clouds started to part.

my eye is better now. i guess it's time to get back to work tomorrow.

boo hoo.

my eye

sunset @ damansara perdana, originally uploaded by nadi0.

somehow, i contracted an eye infection over the weekend. it got worse last night, all red and swollen. i think i might have to take another day off tomorrow so i don't infect people at work.

coincidentally, it's my right eye, the eye that is constantly on my viewfinder.

maybe it's time i got a disinfectant for my viewfinder.

arghh so itchy!

p/s: i don't know why i'm so bothered by something that i'm not even sure i want anymore. maybe i want it still? maybe i don't. i'm freakin' bothered, nevertheless.

sunset @ KJ in HDR

sunset @ KJ in HDR, originally uploaded by nadi0.

another day, another HDR.

i'm going nuts. this addiction to HDR can be dangerous to my photo-taking skills. like i told Kichi, who cares what the original shot looks like when you can do a HDR later?


College sick

These days, when I attend talks and dialogue sessions on process improvement and quality, I keep hearing the words I used to hear in my college classes. Words and abbreviations like SEI, CMM, CMMi, maturity levels, etc.

Somehow hearing those words remind me of the indian food truck near Pitt Library (where they serve my favorite chicken tikka masala in the whole world), Kiva Han on Craig St, the pasta stand in the University Center and the Ponderosa buffet all the way in Monroeville.

the other side of sunrise

the other side of sunrise, originally uploaded by nadi0.

taken at Teluk Chempedak, the morning after my friends' wedding. Cloudy morning when I arrived at the beach, and it was still cloudy when I left to catch a couple more hours of sleep.

i'm going back to sleep, now that i've arrived in KL.

Miss Oh has now become Mrs Oh. Congratulations, you two!

Impossible is Nothing

Impossible is Nothing, originally uploaded by nadi0.

spent the evening in Bukit Malawati in Kuala Selangor, where the view is great and the monkeys are polite. I had no idea how far Kuala Selangor is from my house, so i let my GPS take me. damn it was far! hahahaa.. coming home was another thing, the roadsigns kept promising "Lebuhraya Guthrie" for over 20 kilometers, until i actually reached the highway.

here's a portrait of a silver-leaf monkey for you. i'm definitely going back to this place again...i didn't cover the Kuala Selangor Nature Park because by the time i reached the place, it had just closed for the day. :-( which was why i went up the hill to shoot (photograph) monkeys instead.

3 more days off and back to work..boohoo!
