running out of ideas to do with the wild flowers. i took this shot on the playground and was trying to maximize the macro capacity of my old cam. then took the opportunity to practice basic editing skills. am quite happy...and i need improvement!

Singapore held its first Night Race ever in the history of Formula One racing. the bleachers and race track on the prep day...
the race track...
we went to check the practice (Fri, 26th Sept). from the dozens of photos that we took, none came out that good. i even tried to video it but it didn't came out good as well. i was never a follower of the F1 although i know some drivers. but the moment i've seen the preparations and heard the racing cars, i couldn't help but get excited and feel the adrenaline rush!
i don't know who the drivers are, but i am just so excited!!!

i love taking photos of the moon. unfortunately i haven't had the chance to take photos lately. this shot was taken few months ago before leaving Jakarta. it was funny because it was late in the afternoon when we saw the moon and decided to press the shutter because rarely do i get the chance to picture the moon against the blue sky.

it was the Mooncake Festival over this weekend here in Singapore. my first time to actually celebrate the festival. unfortunately i wasn't able to attend the celebration at Chinatown. but still uncle has received a couple of mooncakes from his friends.
just some info, mooncake is a traditional chinese pastry made from lotus seed paste with a thin crust and usually contains egg yolk from salty duck egg. it is rich, heavy and dense. though most mooncakes these days have different variations.
the photos above are the nut mooncake and pig-shaped mooncake. the nut mooncake tastes good as i love nuts. but i didn't eat the pig-shaped as i know it is too filling. probably if i can find chocolate mooncake that a friend is raving about, i'd try that one as well.

weather is really wonderful this week though it would have occasional rains in some days. i went to the topmost floor of the building flat where i live to get a different sunset shot :D. i can't get the smile off my face upon looking at the picture where the clouds seem to line themselves hence blocking the sun. have a lovely SWF everyone! other pictures for sky watch are here

still a busy week. i took this shot almost three weeks ago when the weather was all warm and nice and i took a walk around the place. i brought my camera with me and took some pictures that i find interesting. i haven't had the chance to review the pictures that i have taken and since i wasn't able to take snapshots for the past few days, i just decided to play with the stock photos that i have. i like the silhouette of the tree against the clouds/sky.

this is a big sculpture which also landmarks Jakarta Selatan (South Jakarta). we often call him Pizza Man as he seems to be carrying a pizza. we couldn't identify him since we're always in a cab when we pass by his place :D. if anyone knows what or who is he, i'd be most happy to know! :D since it's been raining for a couple of days and i was busy the whole week, i've decided to post this shot taken almost three months ago. sky watch photos can be seen here. a happy SWF to everyone!

i'm having a crazy week. getting a lot of headache and feeling lethargic coming to work. i still can't believe the weather, i thought it will be a good week but come this afternoon heavy rains poured. i am also not able to take pictures of anything ( i am getting lazy and i need to be out of this!). i just played with an old photo of mine taken from our trip in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. i am quite satisfied with what i did. i'm keeping my fingers crossed to have some new photos.
