Teh Tarik Session by Creative Visual Studio

Creative Visual Studio organize their first Teh Tarik session with the renown concert photographers, Azrin Arizz and JonYKT who by the way, have been involved / participating in quite a number of concerts by International artistes as well as local artistes.


The Teh Tarik session was just a simple sharing done amongst hobbyist, camera enthusiast, and new as well as experienced photographers. This session is about exchanging views in concert photography and to learn from Azrin's and Jon's experience.

Just some stuffs from the sessions for those of you who have missed it:

  • ISO control - Comfortability and Usability
  • DOs and DON'Ts rules - "Don't pick a fight with the security guards wei..."
  • Wanted / Required shots - What clients usually request for
  • Shooting Angles - Where and When
  • Concert Elements - What is to be included or excluded.
  • Hardware versus Skills - Finding the right balance
  • and much more...
Some advices on picture elements, colouring and angle, being shared..

Looks like a Q&A session?
No la, where got so serious...
Just casual 'ice breaking, get to know and get connected' sorta session =)

Azrin showing some of his sample works.

If you're wondering why there's more of Azrin than Jon, well that's cause Jon's a little shy *coughs badly* but he had his part of sharing too.. Just not as much as Azrin... (Shy la konon =P)

Colours Twirling!

It's interesting, isn't it?
You should join us in the next session!

Chit Chat Over Chatime

The last time I met Mell, was at the same Chatime nearby my house. The last time we had a proper conversation, was several months ago... So it's about time to get a good catch up with her, before the year ends and 2012 step into our lives =D

That's nerdy Mell =)

She told me that she used to be super big size.. like an XL size..
Now she's an M size! Wootza!

Though it was a short time, but we had a good chat! Wish I had more time for longer conversation, but well, this would mean I need another session soon! =D hehehehe..

Catch Up Over Lunch!

It's been a while since I last saw Jan-E (according to her, it's roughly about 2 years since then, OMGosh!!). So, I'm pretty excited to meet her again, and I'm very happy I did! She looks great!

We chat over lunch, briefly sharing what's been happening in our lives, and at work. I got to realize that there were so many similarities between us! Guess that why we could still click with each other =D Hehe!

Due to time constraint (lunch hours aren't that all long, if you're an employee, you'd understand T_T), we kinda had to cut the conversation short. But we'll definitely meet up again in the new year! =P

Cheers to her!
I'll be seeing her in the new year!
Here, I wish her a fantabulastic 2012! =D

Watch A Movie, Ride A Bike..

Thanks to Diese (pronounce: D-C) who helped to organize a movie outing with her sisters and AaronWooLaLa, last night, to watch the infamous Sherlock Holmes! (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows).

Have you noticed this feedback panel?
I just did, and I gave them a =) because of their pricing, service and upkeep of the cinema!
Not to mention, it's a pretty convenient place to reach, and there's ample parking each time I go there!
A group shot!
but kinda failed.. I need to brush up on my camwhoring skills!
(no you did not just see the double-chin, it's just your illusion =P)
Only 4 tickets were purchased even though there were 5 of us...
'Cause Diese had watched it "accidentally" a few days back (=.=")
Here's a clear shot of 4 of us =D
the fifth one was holding the camera, duh~!
A shot of Diese and Me.. and the Christmas Tree =)

The movie was brilliant and epic! Unexpected scenes throughout the entire show! I think it's one of the best around =D Definitely, no spoilers here, but I can say this, BE PREPARED TO LAUGH FROM THE BEGINNING TO THE END! (Seriously, if you don't have to laugh even one bit, something's wrong with you!)

My rating for this AWESOME movie is 9/10.
As compared to the earlier sequel, this removes the element of thinking, but placed more action and exhilarating scenes instead. Some parts were overly used, but you wouldn't notice that unless you pay attention to details rather than the overall of the show. I would say it is a MUST-WATCH movie.. and will be great to have a copy at home!

After the movie, we went to check out Aaron's big-bad-ass bike! The largest  250cc Kawasaki bike there is available in the market. Sounds great, feels great, you'd be great to own it! =P So what do you do when you have a camera on hand and a nice ride in front of you? Duh, camwhore la!

Diese on the bike!
She used to rampage the streets in Penang, made known as the PenangKnight!
(just kidding~!)

Aaron gave us a chance to ride his bike...
but neither Diese nor me, had the confidence of doing it..

So I just act #likeaboss there!

Aaron says, "With a bike like this, who needs a car?"
and continued, "Cars will be following me instead!"
True that, this bike knocks up speed faster than a car.
Quicker & Swifter too, with Style! hahaha..

(Damn good advertising for this bike, LOL!)

Last shot of Diese on the bike, before we headed home
It was getting late anyways.

(You did not notice the shoes there, and don't ask why =P)

Leaving A Legacy Behind

Have you thought of what would be for you, at the end of the day? What would have achieved by then? How would you like others to see you as?

I know these are deep questions, but I believe they are the good type of deep. The reason why I have these questions is because I came to realize that whatever I am doing now, will be reflected in the future and they affect how others think of me. Some people may not be bothered about it now, but really, when the time comes they'll understand what I'm talking about. Imagine 10-20 years from now, what would you want your kid, family and friends to see you as? I would definitely want to be their hero! I wish to be their inspiration and also role model as a living example of someone who is able to fulfil his promises and achieve his defined targets. Someone respectable. The legacy of Jeffro!

Why this is crucial? Because at the end or towards the end of my life, I want to be remembered by others. I may suffer from Alzheimer, Amnesia, or the other type of memory-depreciating diseases, but what's important to me, is that others would remember me for what I've accomplished, the difference I made, the smiles and laughter I created, the lives I've impacted and the inspiration to others that I've become.

What would your legacy be?
How would you like it to be?

X'mas Dinner!

I had myself a great Christmas dinner this time around, thanks to my mum =) We get to enjoy such scrumptious dinner meals, because she made it possible... Loved to dine with my family =D

Food that mum ta-pao / bungkus / packed =)
There's Tong Yuen, Otak-otak, Lamb Ribs, Lamb Chop, Mixed Vegetables, Curry Chicken and Fried Rice =)

This is Lamb Shank, that we ate at Restaurant Herbs & Spice, Sri Petaling!
You should try it! It's really good!
Mum got a special deal through Groupon =)

So what did you have for your X'mas Dinner?

A Day at The Mines

Went there in search of a location to reload my Touch 'N' Go card with Amex, however, to my disappointment, they did not have the service to even begin with - They only accept cash! =(

So, I went walking around since I was already in the mall itself. Didn't want to waste my trip there, I decide to see what's happening in the mall. I saw a bookshop had its book on sale, but to my very surprise, it was a very unexpected atmosphere there...

80% Discount!
The shelves look so messy! (@_@")

Check out the place yo! Nearly racked out!

I'm not sure if the above is something good or bad, but my best guess would be that they're gonna close down. Anyways, let's  take a look at something more cheerful, shall we?

I saw a bunch of carollers walking / pacing around...

I followed them, and then I saw this!! (O_O")  

They sang in a large congregation!
It was amazing!!

Quickly, I grab myself a box of cheesy wedges,
and enjoyed the show!



And that's my day at Mines..
(it was a few days back actually)

This message goes out to all my friends, yet-to-be-friends and the people around me:

MERRY CHRISTMAS! May you have an awesome time in this blessed time as we celebrate the ending of a great year, and to welcome the arrival of a fabulous new year! If you've got something left to do in 2011 (something you've not marked off your to-do-list-2011), then get started before 2012 comes and it's only 1 week or less away!

This year, I did (and I'm doing) something different - rather than the conventional text messages I send out or the Facebook / Twitter updates that I post, I make random personal calls to the people on my list! Though, I've not been able to call everyone, but I made the effort to do so - Some had changed their numbers (OMGosh, that shows how long I've been out of touch), some did not pick up my calls (busy partying?), and some turned off their phones (early to bed?). Oh well...

No matter what, I just love the moments over phone calls where I can hear the laughter and enjoy the conversation (though short ones) with my friends. I think this is the best X'mas ever!

P.s: No, I won't be posting up who or how many I called. Whoever I didn't manage to get hold off, don't get upset. You're not forgotten, I can assure you that =)

I Broke My Lens Filter *sobs*

Of all the things that I could have broken, it had to be the lens filter! =( Well, I guess it's a good thing it was the filter, rather than the lens itself *phew* Was unpacking my stuffs, then suddenly my lens out of no where just came tumbling-ever-after, and the next thing I know, I heard glass shattering sound. I panicked, no kidding! My heart was racing so fast, that I was stunned for a couple of seconds before I had the guts to actually check the lens! It happened sometime 3am this morning...

Scared me half to death!
It was a rather expensive filter too =(

Comic Fiesta @ KLCC Convention Centre

Found out about the Comic Fiesta somewhat a couple of weeks ago, which excites me a lot! Honestly, I’ve been hearing about it here and there, but I’ve never been to it. Always wondering what it’s like there, I mean the atmosphere.. watching people play their favorite comic characters, cosplay, etc. Yeah, I’ve seen in pictures, but not in person = not real.

So, with some “encouragement” from a couple of friends, I decided to take a trip down to KLCCCC (KLCC Convention Centre, *OMGosh so many Cs*) to meet up with a friend who told me she’ll be cosplaying there. Hahaha, like any other guy, I’d definitely be interested in seeing a sexy character =P But, I managed to meet up with Justin and Stephanie there too! Awesome, no? Anyways, I only managed to grab a few shots. I didn’t actually go into the place, ‘cause it was really crowded, and I’m not the type that likes to be in a long queue unless it’s REALLY, REALLY something good! (in which, the last I did for AAR’s concert, I wasn’t too proud of it)

DSC_2497 copyDSC_2500 copyDSC_2501 copy

That’s my friend there, Cheng Yu.
She’s a pretty one, ain’t she? =)
You’d probably seen her, if you were there.

Here’s some other shots I took outside of the halls.
Like I mentioned, I didn’t go in…
Justin’s friend, Azman, who works in the hall, at one of the booths,
said that it’s really cramp inside there – “TOO MANY HUMANS”, lol!

So yeah, after that, I head home..

Snapshots After “Two From Galilee” Musical Play @ Metro Tabernacle!

Was invited by both Melissa and Angelina (they are both great gals), to watch and enjoy a musical play by the Metro Tabernacle’s church members. It was really fascinating, but I didn’t have my camera with me, so I can’t really post anything about it. But, Melissa was in the play whilst Angelina kept me company throughout the night.

After the play, we quickly met up with Melissa. I haven’t seen her like in ages! She’s grown prettier, definitely. And Angelina? She’s taller than before! and prettier too, not to forget =D

Guess what?
They’re both like super younger than me!

Boy, I sure feel old now… hahaha

Service The Car Before Road Trip

Before you start driving outstation, it’s definitely advisable to service your car – to check for any problems that may (hopefully may not) arise during the trip, such as tire condition, engine health, air conditioner, brakes, etc.

Yup, got mine check a couple of days ago =D

P.s: If you’re reading this, it means I’m already on the road!
Off on a holiday vacation!

Dental Surgery: After-Effects!!

Though I posted previously about my dental surgery I had last Tuesday, on Blog, Facebook, and Twitter, there are some people who still don’t believe that dental surgery would cause bad swelling on the jaw and it can last for days. So, I’d figured it’s best to SHOW that it’s indeed a fact and not a made-up story. It’s a #truestory!

This is how I look like at the 4th day after the surgery.
16122011317 copy
hahaha kidding!
That’s actually how I look like when someone I told about my swelling,
and yet that someone ask me to go PARTY and MAKAN…

16122011316 copy
This is how I actually look like AFTER the SURGERY…
Taken on the 4th day…
Those who knows me, well I ain’t that chubby on the cheeks..
(Nope, did not photoshop the swelling~ =.=”)
16122011319 copy
Went out to do usual grocery shopping, errand-running, delivery and yumcha..
And I can find people staring at me… because when I talk I had to slur a little...
I don’t mind the intention, if I were in a normal condition..
but c’mon people! give me a break!

So that’s the AFTER-EFFECTS of dental surgery.
(oh, actually it’s a rather good thing, I kinda slim down a little – lost weight
and I know how I looked like if I were a little chubby on the cheeks, LOL)

Seconds thoughts of porn stars now? Even the religious people aren’t that holy after all (and that’s the US only). For those that think about how awesome having sexual intercourse that earns you big bucks, think again! They’ve got more worries than you’ll ever have at your comfortable desk, office or home!

Something Awesome To Think About!!

Okay, this might just be interesting for you =)
I'm pretty certain that most of you would know when Valentine's Day (Feb 14), April Fool's Day (April 1), Children's Day (Nov 20) and Christmas Day (Dec 25) is?

But do you know why? =P

Why do they call it April Fool's Day 1 and half month after Valentine's Day?

Why does Children's Day comes 9 months after Valentine's Day? 

Why Christmas is about giving and loving? And kids especially enjoy them?

A hint:
Something HAPPY happened on Valentine's Day
Something SHOCKING happened on April Fool's Day
Something BLESSED happened on Children's Day
Some CELEBRATION happened on Christmas Day

Dental Surgery… Better Now than Later!

So, 13 Dec 2011 (13/12/11) marks a special day. It’s a day where I’ve got a mix of feelings running through my mind, body and especially on my mouth – Pain, Relief, Sore, Numbness, Swelling, Unease, Happy, Satisfied, etc.

Stepped into the dental clinic first thing in the morning, prepared myself mentally, told myself to be brave (yea, so I’m afraid of the dentist… Don’t judge me!) but it didn’t turn out quite as plan. Didn’t know the after effects / post-surgery would be so darn uncomfortable!

I had to extract 2 wisdom teeth, because both are impacting the others and causing my inconveniences during my meals. Oh, let’s not forget the occasional ulcer caused by the grinding of abnormal wisdom teeth against the inner cheek flesh. I requested for sedation (knock out gas/shot) but was told that it can only be done at hospital; At the clinic, I can only get anesthetic shots to my mouth. I’ve got no other choice, so I braved up and went ahead with it.

The first tooth was extracted and boy, it felt easy at first. Then, slowly came in the pain crawling into the lower part of my jaws. But thanks for the shots earlier, I could only feel 10% or lesser. Good? Well, think again… My second tooth was the one that gave most problem. In fact, the dental surgeon took longer time at the second one. Apparently, I had be to be given numerous shots, as they weren’t really that effective against the actual pain… Or I just happen to have inconveniently darn good nerves… Hahaha..

13122011308 copy
This is the first wisdom tooth out; See the curvy root?
Didn’t get the shot of the 2nd one, cause my mind was clouded with numbness
from my lower jaw, at the same time, pain was slowly kicking in…

Throughout the whole process, I only shed 2 tears!
And I slot in some jokes with the surgeon and nurse in between, #likeaboss

13122011310 copy13122011312 copy
I got back, and immediately take a nap..
The surgery is really tiring..
[Left] That’s me with an ice pack on the more swollen cheek
[Right] Hours later, the swell worsen! I look chubby!! (>_<”)

14122011313 copy
So, here’s the 2 extracted wisdom teeth…
They are huge! And to think they were 70% buried in my gums previously…

Well, my dental surgery sorta went well. I’m on pain killers right now, I stop using the gauze ‘cause they were very uncomfortable. Plus, the bleeding kinda slowed down, so it’s alright =D Anyways, the damager to my wallet was exactly RM2,000 (my hard earned money just went to my tooth, I hope tooth fairy will compensate me well for the good looking teeth there =P). Dental care don’t come cheap!

So lesson learnt very, very well!
Freaking take care of your teeth now,
Else, pain will come in various ways..
(Wallet, Teeth, Jaw, Mind, etc.)
