orchid show 2007 August 29, 2007

went for an orchid show with julia last saturday at first beach, tanjung aru, kk. saw some pretty interesting looking orchids. oh, there were some cactus plants too…



hmm… why do i have this sudden craving for durian?

this slipper orchid looks somewhat like the sabah’s official orchid – the sumazau slipper orchid
doesn’t even look like an orchid!

i snapped some pictures along the beach too, but that… i’ll post another day.

post scriptum: julia asked me why i take the pictures that i take. i mulled over her question for a good few days. somehow, it reminds me of a question post to me about 2 years ago here. my answer is still the same – it’s inexplicable!

i love sundays August 26, 2007

today, after jogging at likas sports complex, i sat by the pond to reflect upon my life. pretty soon, it started to drizzle. as i was strolling to my car, i saw this beautiful rainbow. i guess that’s how it is with life too. when we are going through a “rainy” season in our lives, it’s precisely then that God sends His rainbow, His promise, His word to us – letting us know that though the “rain” may last for a while, yet the sun will surely shine again. no matter what hardships we are going through, though it may seem as if the situation is hopeless, yet God’s word tells us otherwise.
“For He knows vain men; and when He sees wickedness, will He not search it? For foolish man would be wise, and man is born a wild ass’s colt. If you prepare your heart and stretch out your hands toward Him; if iniquity is in your hand, put it far away, and do not let wickedness dwell in your tents; surely then you shall lift up your face without spot; yea, you shall be steadfast and shall not fear; for you shall forget your misery, and you shall remember it as waters that pass away. And your lifetime shall be clearer than the noonday; though there be darkness, you shall be as the morning. And you shall be safe, because there is hope; yea, you shall look around you, and you shall take your rest in safety. You shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid. Yea, many shall seek your favor.” Job 11:11-20

yesterday, after work, i took “gus” to anjung senja to meet up with julia for sunset shots. the sunset was absolutely glorious, that all i had to do was point and shoot. *sigh*… it was truly relaxing.

ladies and gentlemen, i’m finally a proud owner of a canon 350d, after great “encouragement from pei san (and in serious debt now). its very first outing was to anjung senja for sunset shots. for your information, all photographs were taken from the same spot, our table, with drinks. so sedentary.

julia’s way of handling her camera is so much more… refined
