Taking a break

insurance, IT consultants, paintball, spl

Going to take two days leave… coz there will be Sabah Paintball League (SPL) Cup on Saturday and Sunday. So I will be taking leave on Friday and Monday… Friday to get myself relax… Monday to recover from any sunburned.

Covering the SPL Cup is always an exciting and painful job… especially when inside the field taking photos and gets all the pallets or bullets when in the firing line… and most of the time stray pallets too. Standing in front of the flying pallets usually the best view… where u can see the pallets flying to towards me… and hit my camera sometimes… πŸ˜›

Taking paintball photos is just a hobby… IT is my real work… so getting a little adventure out of IT office work is good… out from the super cool aircond to under the hot sun… and get sunburned… πŸ˜› Usually there is insurance for it consultants but how about for paintball photographer?… well, I guess the normal life insurance is sufficient… but how about for the gears?… There must be one, just like the insurance for golf gears… πŸ˜› Anyways, I better stop here before I start writing in gibberish… too sleepy… πŸ˜›

In less than a week, the Sabah Paintball League Cup 2011 2nd Leg will kick-off… that’s on 25-26 June 2011. The first leg was held on 12-13 March 2011. Just like the first leg, it will be held at the same venue at KK Paintball Centre Field in Likas Sports Complex.


Although it is raining most of the time lately, we are hoping for a good weather during the tournament. And hopefully, the teams will be more better equipped with new markers, goggle/mask and jersey… and possibly with barska scope if that is allowed by the organizer… πŸ˜€


training after a year

blackhead remover, blackheads, paintball, training

Yesterday, Saturday, morning I had my first paintball training after almost a year… I did not check or service my marker or gun after the last time I played… I went late to the field, supposed to meet the rest at the field around 8am, but I woke up at 8am… I arrived at the field around 9am and started servicing my marker… the rest already started in the field.

I was rushing to the field, I did not take any food for breakfast… just a cup or tea. Since I was late, I was not planning to train… just want to test my marker then… furthermore I did not put any sun block… but lucky the sun was not that strong… but strong enough to turn someone into BBQ… and probably has to work on to get rid of blackheads on nose πŸ˜›

At the end I have to train with the rest… they insist… I played two matches… the first match was great… my marker was working fine… manage to kill two… but during the rest, my marker started hissing… damm… something leaking… the air runs out pretty fast… I only switch on the air when the game started… it was noisy… but still can shoot… but at the end, I have to get out of the field coz the air-line started getting too cold and the tank is getting empty…

Anyways, had a fun training… πŸ˜€ but it was super tiring… stretched most of my body muscle… especially my leg… now can’t walk straight… and I also having stomach ache… which turn out to be food poisoning.

massage therapy, paintball, Sabah Paintball League, spl, sports

This is a late reporting… I should have posted this last week but I was to tired and too busy… and still busy and still exhausted… πŸ˜›

Anyways, this is about the Sabah Paintball League 2011 which was held on 12 and 13 March. Once again, I was assigned by the organizer to take photos from inside the field. Like last year, I was assisted by Bonaventure who assisted me on the first day and Louis on the second day… meaning I was covering it for two days… standing under the sun for two days… well there was not much sun… it was cloudy most of the time and it was raining on the first day towards the end of the day… around 3pm.

After standing under the sun and rain for two days, I continued with journey to Sandakan for 3 days… Monday to Wednesday… went there by road which put us 8 hours on the road and I came back by air which only took about 55 minutes. I was bloody tired with the two events… I’m really exhausted… I really need a massage therapy program… I’m thinking to get body massage this weekend… probably with acupuncture too… πŸ˜›

OK, back to SPL… this time the field is much better then last year… and it is bigger too. The field was dry on the first day but it was wet when the rain came down at the end of the first day event… causing two matches carried to the following day. There are 24 teams divided into 3 groups with 8 teams each. This is the first leg of three legs league. The winners of this first leg are… 1st is Hoodlums, 2nd is Tribe-X and 3rd is Splatz 1… and I have not processed all the photos yet… here are some of it…

Winner… Hoodlums

2nd… Tribe-X

3rd… Splatz 1

4th… Mighty Owl

Kotobian Tadau Kaamatan

blackhead, Burnout360 Sabah Drift Challenge, dcim, International Super Seven Championship, ISSC, KDCA, paintball, sunburn, tadau kaamatan

Kotobian Tadau Kaamatan… Happy Harvest Festival… to all the people of Sabah wherever you are πŸ˜€

Kaamatan is celebrated in Sabah for two days… 30th and 31st May every year… and it’s gonna be public holiday till Tuesday coz the first day of Kaamatan falls on Sunday.

OK, I have not updated my blogs for more than two weeks…Β  well, I took a break coz I was away with some activities…

I left for KL on 15th to attend the Digital Camera, Imaging and Media expo in Mid Valley… then continue with study tour to Hi Tech Padu, Ranhill and Putra Jaya from Monday and Tuesday.

Then I was hotel alone for two days waiting for my paintball teammates at Cititel Hotel MidValley for the International Super Seven Championship 2010 in Petaling Jaya… which were held from 22nd and 23rd May. I did not played coz my back was still injured… but I still had sunburn… coz I was also under the sun watching and taking my teammates photos.

Then back to Sabah on 24th May… full with sunburn and fatigue… really exhausted with more than a week activities… πŸ˜› My skin has turn black… i guess my face is full with blackheads… need a blackhead remover and some scrub… πŸ˜› coz I look black and shiny now…

Then get more sun burn on Saturday, 29th May, for the Burnout360 Sabah Drift Challenge… which was organized so badly…Β  they put the schedule as 8am – Midnight… but the drift challenge was put to 4pm then to 6pm… imagine the amount of sunburn we have to take from 11am!!!

OK, thats all for now… need to get ready to KDCA to take cultural photos… Aramai Tii…


i can attend dcim :D

dcim, haircut, paintball, Super Seven Championship, super7, wca, what causes hair loss

Settled all my travel thingy today… well not all, but at least almost all… change my flight from Sunday to Saturday… coz I want to attend the Digital Camera, Imaging & Media expo at MidValley… I was taking advantage here… I’m supposed to go to KL for official thingy from Sunday to Tuesday… but since the DCIM is on during that weekend, I change my flight… my travel for DCIM is free… but I still have to pay for my one night accommodation… Booked hotel at MidValley for a night… then another two nights at Bukit Bintang area…

But tomorrow, I’m going to change my flight again… for coming back… since the International Super Seven Championship is on 22 to 23 May, and we have bought our ticket since January, which we supposedly fly on Thursday, 20 May… my as well stay in KL for another 2 nights… while waiting for my teammates… instead of flying home on Tuesday, 18 May… then fly back to KL again on Thursday… So, it’s going to be almost like last year World Cup Asia 2009 Paintball… 2 weeks in KL πŸ˜›

One other thing I need to be prepared for the official thingy and then for the paintball thingy is… I needed a haircut… it has been more than a month since my last haircut… my hair is getting harder to manage… what causes hair loss you may ask?… my answer will be unmanaged long hair :p I hate it when my hair is long… worse when the wind blow the hair… so I went for haircut after work today… took less than 15 minutes to have my hair cut πŸ˜€
