2006 The Year That Was – A Summary – Part III

Ah back to work today, so sad.

Continued from Part II.


September was a fairly busy month and dominated again by posts about my trip to UK and straight after that another trip to Dubai.

UK was great as always!



Delicate Pink

Fish & Chips

Minehead – Seaside Relaxing in the UK
Food, food and more FOOD! (Cheese, Pasta & Omlette)
Fish & Chips and a Walk by the River Severn with Sunset!

After that it was immediately off to Dubai for a much more enjoyable second trip, I had some decent company and managed to go on an awesome desert safari, something everyone should experience once in their life.




Dubai Desert Safari – Part II – Belly Dancing BBQ!
Dubai Desert Safari – A must do!
Dubai..sand…. sand…cranes …sand & Jack Daniels
Flickr Banned and Youtube Blocked in Dubai

After I came back…I had about the worst day of my year I think, my car was smashed and my camera stolen..


I decided almost straight away to get a replacement, if not I’d keep mulling over the loss and make myself mental.


October my Mom was here on her way to New Zealand so I went down and stayed in Singapore, before that I posted a couple more sets from my UK trip.





Minehead – Part III – The Sunset
Minehead – Part II – A Walk Along the Seafront

October also had the second anniversary of my humble blog!

Then of course my trip to Singapore and a great chance to learn my new Camera and develop my street photography skills.



Old Men

It was challenging shooting with 2 prime lenses (90mm and 50mm).

Singapore – Chinatown – Part II
Singapore – Chinatown – Part I
I’m in Singapore!

I still haven’t posted all the Singapore OR UK pics yet…bad me, I really need to catch up.

In October I also took part in my first photographic contest, Shong Lee Photogenic Catwalk Photography Contest at 1-Utama!


Rose Chin

I ranked about half way down, shooting with my macro lens and no flash! You can see the outcome etc here.


November was a sad month, November 1st I quit my job of almost 3 years…mostly because I had to go to Saudi Arabia for 3 months, plus all the other reasons in my recent post.

What a boring place..




I managed to get back alive and in one piece, finished of my handover and ended my term with my company at the end of November.

I did manage to get to the A1 Grand Prix at Sepang..in the rain!

I didn’t really have a long enough lens to get any decent shots though.





Ah December, the end of the year already, quite an eventful month and recent so clear in my mind.

I had a model shoot in Putrajaya…but I still haven’t post the pics!


Then I didn’t blog much because my Streamyx was down from Dec 16th until Dec 27th.

I actually did a lot in December but you’ll have to find out about all that later wont you 🙂

    slacker: Yah I quit November first, free man since December 1st. Now I do some other stuff, like v0ices mentioned 😉

    Yeelin: Thanks! Do drop by more often…and leave more comments..I have had very low comments lately, makes me de-motivated.

    I don’t mind dropping more comments if that will re-motivate you 🙂 but really, it is hard to comment on anything if you don’t blog more often… it is a chicken and egg thing I guess… OK, hope to see some new stuff when I revisit your blog… hehe
