The Boy, The Sword and The Webblog

This is my first blog post in 10 months, last blog post of 2010. Too busy building props i guess... Didn't blogged for too long... don't really know how to blog anymore. Looking back at 2010, are you happy with how you spend your year? I'm unable to reach any of the goals I set for myself at the start of 2010... At least i am able to "Get myself an intermediate photography set"; a goal I set for myself at the start of 2009! Ending 2010 with lots of regrets.

It's nice spare yourself some time to sit back and reflect the year that was before starting off with the next year. Before sharing my resolutions for 2011, I would like to reflect the year 2010.

I injured my kneecap during the 4th quarter of the year. I lived like a cripple for about a month. I don't enjoy living like that... It gets very frustrated when you are not able to make it for the lifts, all the small little things in life and to have other people looking at you differently. Made a promise to myself to not laugh at handicaps unless the damage is self-inflicted by some stupid unimaginable ways, so stupid that it couldn't be classed as stupid anymore. Love your legs, do not hop your way downhill. Warm up exercise is very important before you start any of your adventure trips. Proper footwear is very important.

Constructed my first prop for cosplay. Prop building was never easy work... Especially when you are over ambitious. Its not easy handling fiberglass...

Glad that people around me are supportive of this pet project. I'm pretty happy with the finished product. Ladies and Gentlemen, Redwing (炎剣リオレウス)from Monster Hunter 2g.

Learned that producing decent outdoor pre-wedding photography is no easy job for noobs.

If you have low alcohol tolerance, don't drink if you can't drink. Hangover is horrible. "I'm not drunk, my world is just shaky" - Sum

I think that my 2010 is a great year... could have been better... great but full of regrets. I think this is pretty much it... Have you decided your year 2010 resolutions yet? I'll share my new year resolutions here, and hopefully you will share yours too.

- Beef up more... 10kgs is just not enough. I set my aim at 60kgs, but hopefully i will reach at least 55kgs

- Improve myself, be a better person.

- Complete my armor, debut my first cosplay.

Should have put this up 2 (+2) weeks ago. I took my occasionally smart siblings and cousin up to Tabur west for what-supposedly-be-a-short-hike. (turned up to be not-a-short-hike.) Photobucket
Just like most of my previous hikes up Tabur... Waking up early, give everybody a wake-up call, take a simple breakfast, double check all my gears, and off we go! Well... Its not an easy job guiding first timers up Tabur... especially my cousin and my sister. There will be a "Are we there yet?", "How about now?", "I want to go home" at least once every 5 to 10 minutes Bummer.

But still, THANK GOD in the end both of them finished the hike and made it back to the car in one complete piece!!! Phew~ I am so glad that nothing screwed up. Photobucket That's all for today i guess. More stuff here.

Tabur East

My first hike up Tabur East is also my first hike this new year... The terrain features here on Tabur East is quite similar to Tabur West. Just that the trail now is much longer, steeper, much dangerous and filled with more awesomeness.

The trip was delayed more than 45 minutes because of me... so, I had to buy lunch for the group... Ouch... Still, lucky for me that we are hiking in a small group. Beginners are not advised to trek/ hike here without a guide. The trail up there is very quite straight forward, 1 way up and the same way down. I seriously fail to understand how some hikers still manage to get themselves lost from some reports. The starting point of the trail is less than 10 minutes drive away from Tabur West. This trip for me is relaxing, we took our time camwhoring and raining shit death from above. That's why it took our group around 2 hours from the foothills to the last peek... Photobucket From the first peek, you'll get a good view of the Klang gates and Tabur west. From the 2nd peak... I can't actually disscribe it with words... due to my very limited vocabulary... The view from up there is so awesome that it revitalizes you.
There is a river at the foothills where you can wash yourself after the hike. Its a good spot to try out your macro lens capabilities.
Dear hikers, please do not leave your food wrappers on the mountain. There are rubbish bins at the foothills for you to dispose your trash. If you happen to know the names of these dragonflies, do let me know.More Tabur East stuff here.

Looking back at 2009...

Its damn awesome to blog in the middle of the night while having chicken curry served with white bread and at the same time its raining outside. 2009 is finally over after 365 long days... Looking back at 2009, are you happy with how you spend your year? Regrets? I have plenty of regrets... too many to mention... Heh... there are lots of things I should have put in more effort to do back there. I feel sad because i only get to partially fulfill one of my 5 targets i set for myself at the start of year 2009. I have to admit I was not being productive throughout the year 2009... Photobucket
However there are also some stuff I never regret picking up... Thinking of last year's best moments makes me smile and lightens me a little. Well, whats done is done... can't really change the past...
