I guess most of us have known about this lil game. Or, in case u are still blurry about all this, pls pay HostelBookers.com's blog a visit! I will now continue the assignment tagged by my Malaysian Travel Blogger friend, Yafieda Jamil...Thanxs Fie, for tagging me...! All of a sudden, I become so excited searching for the photos. Somehow when looking at all the photos, it brings back old memories of all the places I'd been to. And, it makes me feel so grateful and thankful to God for giving me the opportunity to witness his beautiful creations. It takes me a while to choose the most suitable photo for each of the category. Therefore, after a few hours of selective selection, these are the 'winners' for each category!
1. TAKES MY BREATH AWAY
Amsterdam (2009) - This photo was taken when I was on my way to Brussels from Amsterdam. I didn't really know the name of the place, actually. When seeing such breathtaking scenery, your hands would automatically grabbed the camera, and your fingers would definitely busy clicking here and there. The greenery of the field stuck in my mind until today. Not only that, the weather was also on our side that day. Just look at the sky!
2. MAKES ME LAUGH OR SMILE
Cameron Highland (2011) - This is very personal to me. No matter how angry I am, no matter how tired I am and no matter how they make me mad... I will always smile and laugh when I am with them. These are my two crown jewels. Difficult to control and stubborn at times but I love them with all my heart!
3. MAKES ME DREAM
Madame Tussauds, Bangkok, Thailand (2011) - My dream is to visit the White House. Since USA is very far and expensive to go, so, visiting Madame Tussauds would do. If I ever visit the White House, I am pretty sure, Mr Barrack Obama is no longer the president of the USA. I love this place. I can take photos with all the famous people around the world, including the president of the United States...:)
4. MAKES ME THINK
Chu Chi Tunnel, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (2010) - This photo shows how the Vietcong cooked their meal during the war in the 70s. The food in the photo was called paper cake. The ladies used to cook the paper cake very early in the morning and only in the morning because they needed the fog to blend with their cooking's smoke so that the American Soldiers would not detect them. I learnt a lot about life when visiting Vietnam. It really made me sat back and think, why there is war in this wonderful world? People should live in harmony and peace. And no one, i repeat, NO ONE deserves to suffer.
5. MAKES MY MOUTH WATER
Pondok Mina Restaurant, Bali (2011) - Very appetizing! Sweet n sour gourami fish. We stopped at Pondok Mina Restaurant on our way back from Tirtagangga Water Palace. The fish was so delicious and fresh. It has a balanced taste between sweet and savory. The price was cheap too. If I'm not mistaken, it was about RM12 for the whole set consisting of the fish, rice and vegetable. The driver who took us around that day showed us the place. We told him we wanted to eat at a cheap halal eating outlet and he brought us here.
6. TELLS A STORY
Sarawak Cultural Village, Kuching, Sarawak (2011) - These skeletons were kept in the house for protection from the evil spirits. According to the Bidayuh's people (one of the indigenous races in Sarawak), when the warriors had killed their enemies, you need to keep the skeletons and perform some rituals from time to time so that the spirits would be in peace and they wouldn't haunt you and your family. Scary, isn't it?
7. THE PHOTO THAT I AM MOST PROUD OF (AKA MY WORTHY OF NAT GEO SHOT)
Lands End, Penzance, West Cornwall, UK (2000) - Hmmm... this is actually the most difficult one to find...Knowing me and my skill in photography... While scrolling up and down my files and searching high and low into all my boxes and albums, I saw this photo. Very classic and old. This was taken more than 10 years ago. I went on a day trip from Plymouth to Lands End. As the name suggests, Lands End is the extremely westerly point of the mainland of United Kingdom. When i snapped the photo, the wind was very strong and it seemed like thunder storm was coming. The water looked rough and fierce slamming the rocky islets.
Alright folks... I rest my case! I hope u enjoy reading my 7 super shots. Before I sign off, i would like to nominate 5 interesting people whose lives are so interesting, i wish i could be like them. Ok, guys..i pass the baton to you..!
