Shooting with bow and arrows

Life was hectic after I came back from KL on the 22 November 2009. There were so many works to be done in a short period and they keep coming… 😛

So today went to 1Borneo to let go some steam… shooting with bow and arrows… yea there is a new game at the 3rd floor of 1Borneo… the game is quite dangerous coz it involve arrow… a weapon which can hurt and kill!

The place is quite secure but more safety precautions should be put in place… especially when the workers go inside to collect the arrows. Who knows if someone accidentally let go an arrow and hit any of the worker… accident will not allow disability appeal… if the arrow hit the eye, that’s it… blind is the name!!! No turning back… you can’t appeal… 😛

Anyway, the game is only RM9…

Paint Ball at Karambunai Lagoon Park

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… 😀
