Ironman Langkawi... will i make it to the finish line?

Image
Like everyone else, I have my own wish list of what I want to do in life and Ironman is one of them. Now less than a week to the grueling 17-hour race, I feel dokidoki (nervous in Japanese)  The journey not only started last year after I went to support my friends in Ironman 2008. But it was earlier before that. Check out my previous blog at kasturie.fotopages.com.

His writing full with colors, wisdoms & jokes too.  I want to tell you about my car Naza Citra. Although I've lost my wife & my kids after the divorce, this car seem to be clung together with me. I wanted to sell it off but it doesn't have secondhand value. So, I've to stick with it until I have enough money to let it go and get myself a new... ehem ehem... sports car. Why i bought the car? Because of my wife (ex). She wanted an MPV although I've told her it's too …

Outdoor Adventure at Belum Forest

Image
A trip to Belum Forest is more on playing with my new toy Sony Alpha 300 DSLR than go for  camping. I took nearly 600 pictures and almost 3Gb of data. Lucky i bought an extra battery grip and my photo shooting could last for 3 days without charging.


My best shot - Morning view of Tasik Banding
The contrast between the water & the blue sky
Blue sky, green forest & clear water

We hit a jackpot, we found a full bloom Rafflesia!

FUN FUN FUN!!!!
