KLCC at night

We made sure to visit the iconic Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) on our recent trip to the capital. Who is not amazed when staring up at these magnificent towers illuminated in splendor at night? Here are some photos I took of the towers and surrounding area:

Kuala Lumpur (KL) trip 22-25 November, 2013

As payment for doing another proofreading job for The Majestic Hotel, we enjoyed a 4D 3N stay and this time brought our great friends along with us where we enjoyed the connecting rooms provided.

We also loved seeing the Petronas Twin Towers shining proudly at night, a must-see for any trip to the capital.

The next few blog posts will document our trip to KL and the great time we had there!

Bracing ourselves for the rainy season

The rainy season, or monsoon season, will be in full force any day now across Malaysia.

We have torrential rains, and last year saw the worst flooding in Kuantan for over 50 years. But we are fortunate enough not to endure storms of the like which have battered the Philippines in recent days.

While the rainy season presents challenges for us in Kuantan, I realise it pales in comparison to the natural disasters other parts of Asia and America have received in recent times.

Nevertheless, we are bracing ourselves . . .

Lamborghini Diablo

Check out this Lamborghini Diablo sports car right outside my front door! It belongs to the Tengku Mahkota (the Prince of Pahang, son of the Sultan of Pahang). We are friends with the Prince's personal driver and he was having a bite to eat at the food stall while looking after the car. He readily invited me to come and take some photos!

TM (Tengku Mahkota)'s Lamborghini Diablo. The heat and power coming from the back of the car was amazing! Like standing behind a small aircraft!

How cool is this car?! What is your favourite car?

Stray cats - awfully cute, but a nuisance

Yes, the stray cats who have made our staircase their home are smelly and dirty, leaving their excrement behind, and spend the days and nights loitering here.

But, they are so cute!

Breakfast at Old Town

We like to go eat breakfast with our friends every Saturday morning at Old Town White Coffee. Good food at good prices and it's convenient for us.

Last Saturday I managed to photograph a scene at Old Town White Coffee of a typical family gathered around a circular table enjoying breakfast together:

Do you like eating out for breakfast? If so, where?

Photoshoot with Lauren

Taking a break from the usual today to share some photos I took in a photoshoot with my eldest daughter, Lauren. We painted her bedroom pink and the photos there look so much better as a result. Hope you enjoy these photos. Lauren will be 6 after Christmas.

Christmas Tree is UP!!!

Lauren stands by our Christmas Tree

It may still be a little early, and some of you may still be recovering from a Halloween fright night, but our Christmas Tree is up!

My good wife has got a tradition going of putting the tree up on the first day of November. It does give me the opportunity to get the camera out and start experimenting with the lights. And I love the relaxing nights with nothing but the tree lights on. It does create a very warm and cosy atmosphere!
