D.I.Y. Fisheye Lens
Since I bought my E-500, I had been dreaming of a fisheye lens. But until now, I still cannot afford one. What I like about the fisheye lens are the effect of the round distortion and it can cover super ultra wide angle of sight... Read More...

Beijing 2008 Olympic Torch Relay, Malaysia Leg: Part 1

On 21st of April 2008, Malaysia, the 13th country to host the Beijing 2008 Olympic Torch Relay event from 21 countries chosen outside China was held peacefully and without much problem. The event was held in the capital city, Kuala Lumpur. The 16.5 km long-relay began from the historic Dataran Merdeka, passed in front of several city landmarks before coming to an end at the iconic Petronas Twin Towers. Among the landmarks the Olympic flame passed next to were the Parliament House, Masjid Negara, KL Tower and Merdeka Stadium. A team of 1000 personnel from the Malaysian Police Special Action Squad guarded the event and escorted the torchbearers. There were a total of 80 torchbearers, comprising corporate figures, sports personalities and patrons of sports organizations. Cheah Soon Kit, Yap Kim Hock and Nicol David were among the torchbearers. The last time an Olympic torch relay was held in Malaysia was the 1964 Tokyo edition.

On this historic day, I took a day leave take some photos of the Olympic torch relay event and the torch itself as a remembrance for myself as such event may not happen again in the coming half century. The outcome was really good where I get to touch the torch from some really nice and humble torchbearers (except cocky Nurul Huda Abdullah) and get really close to the flame to feel the passion of the Olympic (how I wish I could go to see the Olympic in Beijing...).

I will stop the crap now and let the photos I took do the talking...Enjoy...
