Malaysian Book of Record

Last Friday, my school celebrated another achievement, which is putting the school's name in the Malaysian Book of Record for the Most Number of Flower Pots Made of Recycled Bottles.  For the past few months, the school have been diligently collection unused bottles from various sources. The biggest donor came from workshops around Kota Kinabalu. 

Datuk Philip B. Lasimbang was invited to witness and helped counting the bottles. At first, the initial target was 3000, but in the end, the school managed to gather 5584 bottles! 

Different shapes and colours!

Jane and Pamela and Kibunut

This photoshoot was held on the October 2nd. This place is a popular vacation spot whereby you are provided with clean and cool flowing river, an abundance of dipping spots, a few barbecue pits and shades. The entrance fee is RM2 which is very cheap.

It was during this session that I used an umbrella flash kit. I bought it for RM150 from CPL Photo KK plaza and I must admit I like how it diffuse the light from the flash. It has been a must-used item for all our recent photoshoot session nowadays.

A mini field. 

As usual, group photo of those who came.

Jzasmine at Karambunai Lagoon

She is a new member of our Sony FB and since we were busy planning for the consecutive talent shooting that's already starting this month, she hinted that she wanted one as well. Of course we would not let this opportunity passed and in just a day, an event was created for her photoshoot. This time around we picked Karambunai Lagoon as it offers vast space with an abundance of nice spots for portraiture. Each of us paid RM10 for the entrance fees and the session starts soon afterwards.

Nana photoshoot - Tamparuli and Kibunut

Starting this month of October, our FB Sony Alpha Kaki Photo group will be having weekly model shooting, thanks to our friend Jane who provided the most talent. This particular session with Nana, was done early last month as requested by a good friend Joshua. He came from Miri, bringing with him some ethnic costume but the most prominent is the sape (a Sarawak traditional musical instrument). Nana even rented her traditional costume which was adorned with beautiful coloured-beads. 

That morning we shot sunrise at Mengkabong bridge before going to Tamparuli for the first part of the shooting session. Tamparuli is famous for its hanging bridge and we found one just by the roadside (albeit a modern one). 

After that, we proceed to Kibunut waterfall along Penampang-Tambunan road. It is a popular spot for picnicking. We used reflectors a lot here.

As usual, group photo of those who came.
