Pantai Serasa Outing

I went to Pantai Serasa for a short photo outing with two of my old school buddies last Sunday, 3rd October. We were a bit late and could not really capture the beautiful colour of sun rise at the area. It was more a get together than a photo outing though but we enjoyed the trip. We intend to do more outings with more of our other old mates in the near future.

 I still could not process the photos I took in RAW format as I am still having some problems with my software........... Here's one of the photos that I took in .jpg format. Although these dilapidated huts can be good photo subjects, I think they also spoilt the overall beauty of the area....... I hope the relevant authorities will remove these structures and not allow people to build any more of these huts around the area in the future.

Some of the Macro (or is it Micro ??) photos taken in my garden on Tuesday morning, 13th July while I was on "sick leave" after having one tooth extracted (after the crown came loose the day before) and my right cheek became swollen.... and it was the first time I've really been able to try out my Nikkor 105mm Micro lens since I bought it last year. I thought it was all worth it.... the bloody mouth, the swollen cheek and all.......

24th May has been designated Energy Day for Brunei Darussalam. Appropriately, the theme for this year's Energy Day is "VALUE OUR PRECIOUS ENERGY" or in Malay; "HARGAI TENAGA KITANI".

This year will see the launching by Yang Berhormat The Minister of Energy at the Prime Minister's office tomorrow, 24th May. The day will also see all petrol filling stations throughout the Country selling petroleum products at "commercial prices" without any subsidy. In a press interview on Thursday 20th May, representatives from the Energy Division and the Petroleum Unit explained that the objective of the initiative was to raise public awareness (on how much the Government is spending on subsidising these products for the public).

Other initiatives throughout the Energy Week will include Energy Forum, Energy Camps and a short sketch (drama) competition among Secondary schools.

Support the Energy Week by "Switching Off and Set" (SOS) on 24th May from 09.00am to 09.00pm and make your pledge here.

Leech Therapy

Tried the "Leech Spa" (Lintah) for the first time last month on my problematic right calf which has been giving me a lot of pain for some times.

The Leech treatment was said to be good for the treatment of ghout, asthma, high blood, diabetis, muscles pain, migraine, pimples, etc. Might be a scary experience for some people though..... but once you get used to these cold crawly creatures they are not really that scary....

Took some photos of a customer receiving "botox" treatment for pimples at the Spa's premises at Chuchu Plaza, Telanai .....

The leeches were given "wet blankets" to keep them moist so they can continue doing their task (of sucking blood) ...

The tiny creatures became so big after completing their "blood sucking" task and just fall off your skin.....

These are the packages offered by Laila's Leech Spa.....

Masjid SOAS in Terengganu, Malaysia

Visited the "Taman Tamaddun Islam" (Edutainment Park) in Terengganu, Malaysia on 21st Dec. 2009 while holidaying with my family in Kelantan, Terengganu, Melaka and KL. One of the monuments among the 21 monuments in the Park is Brunei's Masjid Sultan Omarali Saifuddin. The details of all the mini Masjids were very impressive. We actually visited the Park in March 2009 but was very unlucky because, as it was a Tuesday, the Park was closed.
