Thian Hoe Restaurant at Gurun

After our morning shooting session at Kuala Muda, we hunt around for food. Our initial plan is to go for the Yau Yue Ong Choy (cuttlefish convolvulus) at Gurun. I miss the taste of the yau yue ong choy after I’ve tasted it once. But we are out of luck that day. The shop is close on Saturday. Since our stomach is already crying for food, we just stopped by a restaurant nearby for lunch. Thian Hoe Restaurant is just located a few doors away from the cuttlefish convolvulus stall.


A lok lok style rojak! + a visit to Kuala Muda

What do this small stall offers? See those ‘sticks’ resting on the stall… Could be satay? lok lok? Read on to find out!


Photography ; Light Trail Shooting at E-gate

I’m not going to write about any food today, instead I’m going to share some photos of Light Trail which I took last Saturday at E-gate. This is my first light trail shooting and I learned a lot from my friends and sifus who are so kind to teach :)  

This is my first time to join them in the photo shooting outing. I was nervous at first, due to I’m new in the group.  The meeting point is at the Caltex petrol station near E-gate. When most of the people had gathered, we walked to the pedestrian bridge nearby. It was just 6.30 pm and the sun was still shinning brightly. 

Erm… I think due to the sun still shinning brightly, it’s not suitable for shooting yet.  So we crossed the bridge and had our own good time. 

When it’s 7pm++, we started to set our tripod and find ourselves a good spot with good view. Too bad we only have one tripod to share among 2 of us. So I used the pedestrian bridge handle to support my camera since I am not using any tripod. 

Tried out a few setting of shutter speed and aperture to get the effect that I wanted. 

This is the shot when the sky is still bright. Not much cars were on the road that day. Long exposure is needed in order to get the ‘light trail’ effect.

The sky become more bluish and the picture become more colourful. Due to no tripod, I have limitations in the angle. :(


How’s the shots?

First shot – fried lou shu fan.

2nd – Mantis prawn with cereals. Yummy. . . 3rd – Abalone with brocolli
4th – Lanterns …
Any comment on these few shots?


Recently I am quite into photography as I read lots of blogs and I starting to admire the blogger’s photography skill. As I don’t have a pro-camera, I just can snap pics with my normal Olympus camera. Model FE-150.

The below picture I captured while the car is moving. I quite like it. Any comment?
