Travelling & Photography

journey, korea, tour, travel, vietnam

I guess everyone is in high gear for the coming election… yeap, the coming Malaysia’s 13th General Election. But that’s not what I’m going to talk about… I rather talk about something I like… such as photography or travelling.

Actually I’m still tired… fatigue with all the travelling. Last month, 20th to 24th March, about 18 of us went to Vietnam. Then on, 2nd to 4th April, I went to KL for a meeting. I like travelling very much, but there is one thing I hate after coming back from travelling or outstation… the office will wait with load of works to complete… :p

The trip to Vietnam was cool… rowed a boat,  fired 5 rounds of M16, crawled into Viet Cong tunnel, foods, streets, bikes and many more…

So travelling was cool… so does snapping photos along the journey… and this time I only brought a non-DSLR camera, the Canon G1X. Last year I brought my Canon 7D together with borrowed 18-200mm lens to Korea. So how was Canon G1X compared with 7D as travelling camera?… Well, 7D is sure heavy and bulky with great speed and quality… G1X is easier and lighter to carry around, but unfortunately it’s a bit slow when there is not enough lighting and you need some patience with it… but still a good camera to take along for trips. And now I’m thinking about the new Canon 100D for my next trip… it’s not here yet, not even in the market yet but soon… and hopefully it is small and light enough with great features.

So came back with few hundreds of photos… now how to pick and sort them out?… well, I haven’t… even the Korea trip photos I still haven’t sort out… 😛 Yea, I’m that lazy… 😀 I actually wonder how other photographer manages their photos… For me the most difficult part is to look at the computer screen looking through all the photos and editing them… it makes my eyes blurry… My eyes are getting tired… so I better stop a while and write something else after that….

OK, there seems to be a trend… well not really new… seen it a few years back… during an event like annual dinner, there are photo booth at the corner… just like this dallas photo booth service… they have a small booth with small stage and with the event theme as it background. It’s actually very cool, the guests like to take photos with their friends… it’s an annual event, so good to have something to remember it later. The photographer or his/her assistant will print the photo and charge the guests a few bucks like $15… which is reasonable enough.

You can also see this service during wedding event… but the photographer usually do not charge or print the photos on the spot… this is part of the wedding photographer service the newlywed… It’s getting late… I better stop… anyways, I you like to know more about wedding photo booth rentals, you can visit this site to read more…… It’s quite informative.

my american tourister

American Tourister, clamshell, coffee maker, grinders, incheon, korea, samsonite

OK, that was almost 3 weeks without update… well, as usual, I was busy with work… trying my best to complete as much work as possible before the end of May… to be exact by 24th May coz I was following a trip to Korea in the early morning on 25th May.

My journey to South Korea from 25th to 30th May was wonderful… I enjoyed it very much… the weather was so pleasing… I can walk all day long without getting tired… except for the first day coz our flight to Incheon International Airport was at 12.10am, 25th May… meaning there was not enough sleep… the food was served around 12.40am. After eating, I manage to get short nap before we reach Incheon around 5.00 am or 6.00 am local time… that was about 5 hours flight… meaning I had about 4 hours of sleep only.

I was seated next to emergency exit door… this is the small window I have.

When I collect my luggage, it was broken… the sockets at the bottom of the handle tube were missing… My luggage is a heavy duty type… it is the type of clamshell… I think I bought it about 5 or more years ago for RM800… and it has served me in many flights. As advice by our tour agent, I made a report with Asiana Airlines… and with the report, I have to surrender my luggage at Lost and Found office in KKIA. Guess what? I think I have to believe with number… you see, my number in the tour group was 13… and my luggage is the only one broken… beat that… 😛

So today around 5.00pm, I sent my luggage for damage claim at KKIA… I thought I have to fill more forms… well, there was none… all I have to do was surrender the luggage and the officer in charge check my report copy and punch in some number into his computer… and that’s it… 😛 I ask how long it will take to get result or get it solve?… He said 2 weeks… ok, cool… coz I was worried it will take like one month… coz I have to use my luggage for another trip the end of this month and next month… I hope they will replace my American Tourister clamshell with Samsonite clamshell… or they can replace it with something like grinders at… and I can buy my dream Samsonite clamshell… 😀
