Kuala Lumpur, prob the biggest city in Malaysia. Country of humid Summer-like weather with monsoons. I visited KL during the time of the monsoon so it rained a bit. But like some foreigners there, especially when u adapted to Tasmanian cold, we just loved the warm rain. Not too hot, not too cold!

Sharing some pics of my journey back to KL while meeting up with some of the otaku comrades ^^ During my 2 day stay in KL, i wasted no time getting things running, from meetups to getting loot!

The people i met were: WiseFreeman, ZamsJournal, lerrymaru, KururugiSeiryuu, Laniemon

Landed in LCCT (one of the two airports in Malaysia) and headed straight for Port Dickson. This was my view.

One thing i didnt notice was .. red lights means its full, green means the lot is vacant! KL is seriously infested with cars, and this makes car parking way better!

The loot i found at Lowyat Plaza. Good place for electronics. Bought some stuff for my camera and armor upgrades and etc

The DC Reader/Otaku Comrades i met in Kuala Lumpur. Ended up having lunch at Pizza Hut near Lot10. The picture is blur coz i asked someone to take a pic for us, i knew i should have given him a crash course!

Finally at the Melbourne Airport on the way back.

Playing with the Fisheye lens when i got back.

Then playing with the Macro lens!

How close can i go?

Neko shots!

Angry neko shots!

Trying to get close to Kyouka's bell, and yep, thats TIMTAM =3

When u see detail .. U DO SEE DETAILS .. makes me wanna clean my room again! The dust of 10 days when i was gone since Supanova >.<

And thats about it, a quick trip back home, and back to my humble home of high tech-ness. Sometimes i wonder how can they stand doing business with fax machines and all that. I mean, its the age of PDF and email attachments and such! Well, I love Malaysia has a hometown, but it seriously needs to get into the tech savvy world >.<

Attended the 2nd Heroes 4 Kids meeting this month, dated on the 10th April 2010. Ended up finding out we might be getting a Catwoman and Supergirl soon! I am eager to see these new members soon! Was also hoping to see fellow troopers from AICON/501st Legion in this meeting, but i was the only trooper that night >.< Had tons of fun, and this time, i did not feel like a rookie anymore, i actually made myself at home and explored the house looking for all kinds of goodies and treasures! The pics below kinda sums up what happened after the meeting =)

My props meets H4K props!
Finding some old school loot! Sailormoon in VHS!
.. and other old school treasures!
How can i resist posing with so many props around?!
Challenging the future Snake Eyes was a big mistake!
Huh!? What the?!
A simple yet futuristic and elegant gadget toy from a more civilized time! The 1980s!

With one more week to Heroes 4 Kids day where i get to suit up as a Stormtrooper, this weekend i was asked out to go check out Hobart’s Dog Show Day @ Botanical Gardens! While i was there i was pretty amazed about how many pooch lovers there were in Australia. Back home in Malaysia, most public events like these would only involve ‘The Bold and The Beautiful’ .. the pedigree of expensive bought dogs. Dogs bred in captivity to only have two purposes: Impress people with discipline & Just be pretty. But in Australia, its slightly .. or massively different from back home (Malaysia).

Dogs over here are smart, obedient, friendly .. even to babies .. and just look so naturally good looking! Thanks to the 4 seasons! Some dogs were so big, they pretty much dwarf asians like me! Haha. Oh well, less blabbing .. more pics! Finally got to use my 55m+ lens too! Sniping random shops from a known position!

DSC_0592These two pooches are born siblings.

This pooch gave me the ‘Watcha lookin’ at, punk?!’ look.

Unlike Malaysian pooches, pooches are brought up like family members. Even young children can walk their canine family members. There was a time, i met a dog and an infant by themselves, but the dog made sure no one approached the infant till the mom came back. >_<

DSC_0642This is one of the massive sized dogs. Big, slobbery and wrinkly all over! A form of cuteness!

DSC_0655

This dog knows how to chill, cut back, and relax!

Another thing you dont see in Asian countries, carrying ur babies made easy! Baby in a backpack! Asian people back home in Malaysia dont tend to do this, due to certain beliefs.

Another cute shot of a mutt! <3

This dog was a bit unique, it would look wherever the owner was looking XD

Size does matter. This was one of the two super sized dogs i have seen at the event. Look at that size and shaggy fur!

Now for some action Summer Shots! This kid was enjoying summer by rolling down the hill >_<

.. and the kid left his hat somewhere midway when he was rolling .. rolling .. rolling down the hill~~! *singing*
