February 29, I just noticed, today is quite special. Although it is just another ordinary day without much things happening.
Going to settle at least the online application form of KTH University and Course matching tonight with the help from Valerie! Yeah, I am going to SWEDEN!

Bobby, still as usual. Naughty, and did not stay still to let me photograph him. The ticks, the pest are crawling and sucking his blood. Hope poison works on those things. Dad was performing the "ritual" of ticks-cleansing on him. I could tell that Bobby enjoyed it!
This time, no hanging out with friends, only met up with MK for a short while.
Instead, I spent more time on accompanying my parents. Went to my mum's friend's open house, met with so many aunties and uncles. Besides, had a breakfast as a listener with my mum's friends too.
I am glad that despite all of us are now grown-ups and are not at home to accompany mum and dad, especially mum, who is just an unemployed housewife, mum is able to kill her time with her friends gossiping, making cakes, desserts, cookings. I can tell that her friends are all sincere and honest people that can entertain my mum.
All these while I think I am almost cold and emotionless. I noticed that I have developed the compassion towards others, the sincere happiness that I wished others to have. Great change!
Some pictures from Melaka short trip. My sis said I don't know how to take picture. (T_T)
Talk about being evil. This Chendol Ice picture that I am using as display picture managed to draw the saliva and craving of friends who have to stay in Singapore for this recess week.
My evil sister that trampled me. Ha ha.

It was fun. But the price is quite high. In order to get desired nice exposure, need so many tries. Due to time constraint and also to save the Ilford RC Paper, I just rushed the things and did not get a good contact prints.
Nevermind. Oughta try again and do better next time.
Heavy assignment for this week... 2 rolls of film, and processing, printing need to be done before next Friday.
I went to process my roll of re-shoot film all by myself.
So nervous when I was trying to peel open the film can using can opener inside the dark room... Alone.
My hands got sweaty, and shaky.
Luckily I made it.
I open the door and let the light shone on me with pride!

Basically I feel nothing about today.
Been single for so many years already, and nothing wrong to still be a single!
Some memories of the past keep flowing in.
2 years ago, or 3 years already? We were in the Blues Cafe, celebrating Bachelor's day, my best friends and me. Of course, now the others are no longer single and available already. I wonder when is the day I can wave goodbye to single?
Miss the countryside life style. Carefree, hot, and no tutorials.

This Chinese New Year we got to visit our beloved Bobby's eldest son Chester again! He is the same as last year, golden hair, playful as ever, and still plays ball-chasing game! My uncle and his wife's most treasured pet I believe. They let him put on perfume, groomed for the CNY celebration.
And he got a new shirt for this Chinese New Year!
Of course, Daniel couldn't stop the temptation to take pictures with this cute little dog and I actually was enjoying the photography process too although Chester kept jerking up and down and also ran here and there.
Somewhere in Seremban, my house, Bobby was crying out loud for us who were 250KM away.

Quotes from Henri Cartier-bresson
For me the camera is a sketch book,
an instrument of intuition and spontaneity,
the master of the instant which, in visual terms,
questions and decides simultaneously.
In order to give a meaning to the world,
one has to feel involved in what one
frames through the viewfinder.
This attitude requires concentration,
discipline of mind, sensitivity,
and a sense of geometry.
It is by economy of means that one arrives
at simplicity of expression.
To take a photograph is to
hold one’s breath when all faculties converge
in a face of fleeing reality.
It is at that moment that mastering an image
becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.
To take a photograph means to recognize
simultaneously and within a fraction of a second
both the fact itself and the rigorous organisation of
visually perceived forms that give it meaning.
It is putting one’s head, one’s eye, and
one’s heart on the same axis.

You maybe laughing happily and celebrate over your success now, and die in the next second.
Tragedy can occur any second. The life of a bright student and scholar was crushed to nothingness, reduced to nothing more than ashes, etching scars in her loved ones' memories.
Now, I understand the concerns of my parents and their friends, asking me to take train instead of bus. I never really worried about the risk of reckless drivers, I just wanted to reach my destination as fast as possible. My ignorant of the high rate of bus accidents in Malaysia.
