• Stealing Technique.

    I have the Leica D-LUX for more than 1 year now.  When I look at the pictures I have taken when we first got the camera, maybe not use to the feature, capabilities etc, so most pictures I have take may not be nice, at all. Thanks to the few photowalks and lessons I attended organised by media as well as Leica team in Malaysia, I gained some new insights into how to take story telling pictures. There were times when I traveled for work, I could stop myself from walking out from the lunch break with clients to have some time to snap pictures of the places and people.…

  • High Speed Train in Rome, To Many Places, Including Outside of Italy.

    We made arrangement to attend the Pope Audience on Wednesday, so we decided to leave Rome on Tuesday to head out to Florence, or famously known as Fiorenze in Italian. The ride was 80 Euro per pax for return ticket.  We did not plan to stay in Florence, so we went on a day trip, which according to many Romans, more than enough.  We only have 2km of radius to cover.  They were right actually. Florence is small. But I want to talk about the high speed train ride. Retna and I went on bullet train ride when we were in Japan, and then again when I was in Nagoya,…

  • I took the train

    Last Saturday was MobileFest meet, a mostly once a month meet for the tech geek, which I did not realise we have been doing it for the past 7 years, wow. So this time round, we had the meet at Evolve Concept Mall, Ara Damansara.  And since it is a Saturday, I decided not to drive there, which I think I should have.  And used the train. Retna sent me to LRT station at Bandar Puchong Jaya, which I hopped on the train line towards Putra Heights, where the transit point for the Gombak Line, i.e. heading to Ara Damansara, KLCC and ends at Gombak. First impression about the stations,…

  • Save, Save & Save

    RapidKL, owned by Prasarana Malaysia Berhad, asset owner and operator of the country’s two LRT networks and the KL Monorail; in addition to the bus services of RapidKL, RapidPenang and RapidKuantan, been around since 1998.  I think the first time I took a LRT train was during the Commonwealth Game around the same time. Many years passed and now our twins are taking the RapidKL – be it the LRT or the bus on regular basis. When we first approached RapidKL LRT station counter asking about the student card, we were told to buy the the Rapid card, which is RM100 per month for unlimited ride, which since I do not…

  • Tried Uber

    I am always fond for public transport, more so when I could get into one which I could walk and save some time between meetings for work or just doing my own errands. Where I am living and working at #welcometopuchong land, there is not much public transport averrable within the walking distance.  The nearest would be 3km away, which can imagine how hot and dangerous it would be walking on the roads.  More so, the Puchong roads have limited or no shoulder walk way.  So, pretty much we are walking on faith.
