Yesterday, Saturday… 3rd October 2009, I help my friend to take photos for their paint ball game at Karambunai Lagoon Park… the lagoon is part of the Karambunai Resort. The park has many extensive sport and recreational activities… kayaking, water skiing, mangrove cruise and many more… will talk about that next time 😀

This is my second time covering a paint ball game… the first one was in April for the same friend for their woodsball game at KKIP.

Last time it was held in an open space area… a site for constructing building. This time it is held in woods next to the sea… at the lagoon 😀

It is quite difficult to take photos in the woods… especially when the players are dashing behind the woods… my camera can’t lock its focus on the player…

I reach the park a couple of minutes before 10am as promised since I have to replace my 3 years old back tires before that…


The first game started before 10.30 am with a cloudy weather… but still I got a bad sunburn on my neck and both hands 😛

The second game started before 11.50 am with a bit of cloud…

And the third game started before 1.00 pm with rain… I did not enter the arena coz I don’t have rain protection for my camera.

And the third game ended in less than 20 minutes because the players’ goggles are forging… if you never wear a paint ball mask with goggles before, let me tell you how it feels… it is hard to breath underneath it… and with the cold rain, it make the goggle fogging badly inside…

And luckily I have a ponco… a thin plastic rain coat… it was given to me by Disney when we were covering the Borneo Downhill Challenge 2009 in May.

You can either swim in the lagoon or use the shower area to clean yourself… but the shower area was quite a distance from the arena… fresh water supply?… yes they do have… in fact they have many pipes without faucets around the park… it would be nice if they have it working so that guest can clean themselves without taking a long journey to the shower area.

Anyway here are some of the photos I took… will post the full album later… after I finish editing them… 😀

entertainment, game, life

One of my favorite puzzle games during my uni time is SOKOBAN. In fact I still love playing this game until today. This game really tests your creativity. The idea of this game is player pushes boxes around a maze, viewed from above, and tries to put them in designated locations. Only one box may be pushed at a time, and boxes cannot be pulled…. yea, this game is just about moving boxes around… sound boring you said? If you never tried it before, you will definitely say that. But once you played it, you will get hooked to this game FOREVER… just like how kids got hooked with the tiny gray scale screen ‘game and watch’ game console during the eighties… and my favorite ‘game and watch’ game was the Octopus… yea I think that was the title of the game… that was way too long time ago, I can’t possibly remember it very well… but I know the game made me skip food 😛

There are many types of Sokoban out there today from different developers… try googling it 😀 There is one version which has more than 100 levels I played a few years back… but I only manage to complete 70 plus level… The interesting part about Sokoban is, once you solve a particular level… you might not remember the solution after sometimes… that what make you hooked to this game… you want to solve it! badly! again and again…
