2006 The Year That Was – A Summary – Part III

Ah back to work today, so sad.

Continued from Part II.

SeptemberArchives

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!

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.

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

Smashed

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

OctoberArchives

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

Pebbles

Explosion

Moors

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.

Guard

Tricycle

Old Men

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

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.

NovemberArchives

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.

DecemberArchives

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
