IT'S A COMEBACK !

.



IT'S A COMEBACK !




* Sigh * ....



I have fallen out of my routine for six straight months ....

Away in an " internment camp " in a land far far away from my beloved Kelantan, without proper connection with the outside world, living on overly hectic, pact schedule, almost no access to cyberspace ....

(... and oh yeah, on non-Kelantanese diet too .... he he ..)


But now ... I am BACK !

Alas, finally freed by my " captors ", well ... from the absolutely amazing, 6 months of great experiences and wonderful moments ( that I am totally thankful and won't forget ! ) ..

It's mid May 2009 now and there were a lot of interesting things and notable events had gone by since the past 6 months. Looking back, the last three months of 2008 were really eventful and there were much to write about, but realizing my limitations then, I just had to let them pass by ...

( Believe me, you don't want to know where or how I observed last year's Hari Raya Korban ! )





* By Nokia 6300 - 2 Megapixel



... and oh yes, interestingly Hari Raya Korban / Aidil Adha that year fell on the 8th of December 2008, which was also the the start of World War II in Malaya with the Japanese amphibious landing at Pantai Kuala Pak Amat in Kota Bharu, Kelantan.

I was thinking of making an entry to commemorate the event, like I did every year but being in internet wasteland, there was no way I could.

But I decided to commemorate in my own way ( well, sort of ) ....... alongside with my newly found comrades :





* By Nokia 6300 - 2 Megapixel



But perhaps, nothing compares to 17th December 2009.

The day I started photo blogging, more than five years ago, in 2003 .....

Wow ! Five years and I am still at it.

Amazing ! It is somewhat remarkable that I had made it this far ..... a personal feat, I should say. While my friends who took up Fotopages at the same time I took up mine ( including one who inspired me to do so ), had long abandoned theirs, I am still here, putting almost every thoughts I have, especially on Kelantan, in photos and words ... I have no idea how long this will last or until when, perhaps, as long as I am " permitted " to be here and as long as I am feeling like doing it ..... ?

Moving on, it seems that there are a lot things happened in December 2008, apart from the above mentioned, the Islamic New Year of 1430 also fell in December 2008. To be exact, 1 Muharram 1430 was on 29 December 2008 ... Interestingly, just 3 days before the Tahun Baru Masihi itself ...

So, I hope it's still not too late for me to wish my fellow visitors,


" Selamat Tahun Baru Hijrah 1430 and Selamat Tahun Baru 2009 ! "


.. followed by this long list of " Selamat "s :



~ Selamat Tahun Baru Cina ! .... yang tak pasti ke berapa ribu ...



~ Selamat Orang Palestin di Gaza ! Semoga beroleh kemenangan !



~ Selamat .. errr ... better put it in the least understandable lingo :

自分に 「 スラマッ ハリー ラヒール 」!三月二十日、お誕生日をおめでとう~ !



~ Selamat Ulang Tahun Kelahiran Junjungan Besar Kita, Nabi Muhammad S.A.W

( pada 12 Rabi'ul Awal 1430 H bersamaan 9 Mac 2009 ...... )



صلى الله على محمد ... صلى الله عليه وسلم .... يا نبي سلام عليك

يا رسول سلام عليك ..... يا حبيب سلام عليك ... يا رسول الله ... صلوات الله عليك




~ Selamat Hari Keputeraan Al-Sultan Kelantan ke-59 aka Puja Umur, 30 ~ 31 Mac 2009 ...

( Semoga Allah menyihatkan kembali Baginda Tuanku yang kini sedang gering .. )



~ Selamat Hari Pekerja 1 Mei = Labour Day 2009 !

( karena diriku dan kalian adalah karyawan ! )



.. and last, but not least ....

SELAMAT BERKAMERA BARU !

Yahoooooooooooooooooooooooooo ~ ! ( or is it ? )






* By Fujifilm F420 - 3.1 Megapixel. Ironically, this is the last shot with it ...

* When I bought this camera, the first thing that came to my mind, was a DSLR
( to replace my antique, now broken film-based SLR, the Pentax MZ30 35-80mm )
that has to be very very portable ( if possible, exactly like my Fujifilm F420 ).

I was looking for something powerful, of great performance but must not be bulky
or big, that I could bring along anywhere with ease, to take a shot with speed ( like a
pistol and not an anti tank bazooka or a shoulder fired anti aircraft missile ) i.e.
somewhat pocket-able ( which I know won't be possible for a DSLR at the moment ) !

To tell the truth, I have this " addiction " for light sensitivity as excellent light sensitivity
normally spells excellent shots. Nothing I tried so far beats the light sensitivity of a
Fujifilm's ( I tried Nikon D80, but Fujifilm's appeared to be much better, more lively and
vigorous. My decent Fujifilm F420 made a good comparison. ). However, since Fujifilm
fared rather poorly in the DSLR field and that Nikon seems to perform better, I decided
to place my bet on the D60 - as my first DSLR.

But now, this site is telling me that it is much much better to spend your
hard earned cash on a D40 if you are trapped between D40, D40x, D60 and D80, as
the D40 has the lowest mega pixels among them which means larger sensor ( you have
to read the review first to understand this ), thus better light sensitivity i.e. better photo
quality. Upon realising that, I started to feel guilty about having this one .... emmmmm ...

So, anyone fancy a spanking new D60 + camera bag + 4 gig memory card ?

He he he ...
