Finally, I got my new Laptop cum Digital Camera backpack today. In fact,Â I have been looking around for this type of bag because I want to take photo where ever I go, which of course, including when I am working on the road. You see, there are a lot of interesting things, people and scenery along the road you travel everyday, so since I bought my Canon 400D DSLR camera, why don’t I just carry around and take photo, right? I believe this will be very fun.
While I was looking around for the bag, I was scared off by those branded expensive bag which cost around RM 400+ to RM1K initially. But after I saw this item on the EBay, I straight away bought it with some survey and research on it. In fact, I just made the order yesterday around 1pm, and I received the bag today around the same time. This really surprised me because I thought normally it would take about 2 days time in Malaysia to deliver it to me.
Anyway, I am happy with this bag and start from today onwards, when you see someone taking photo anywhere on the road, don’t be surprise!!!
Below are some the photos of my new Kata DR-466 bag. This bag is quite spacious, it can put two Digital SLR Cameras, one with mounted lens, another 3-4 additional lens, flash, accessories and some personal gears. Besides that, its back compartment can also fits a 15″ inches laptop. It is really just my type of coffee.

Oh ya, it was really a painful night for me last night.
Why? Why so painful?
Because Manchester United lost in the Final, giving out the Champion won last year to Barcelona.
We will definitely remember this and we will definitely come back stronger next year.
At last, after few years of waiting, Manchester United is coming to Kuala Lumpur again. In fact, they should be here last year, but due to the Asian game (mm… if I am not mistaken), they could not make it here. Anyway, some information about this game in KL. MU team will be playing with our national team on 18th July 2009 at Bukit Jalil National Stadium. The game will kick off at 5.30pm local time here.
The organizer recently announced that the ticket will be available to public on 1st June, but there is a pre-sales period from 22nd to 31st May and everyone who purchase the ticket within this period will have the chance to visit MU team training session in KL. So, what do you think I will do? . Yeah, I bought the ticket last Friday morning (22nd May).
According to the official, there were more than 15,000 of tickets sold on 22nd May itself, what’s an impressive number. And the best part is, some of the MU fans were even queueing from 8 o’clock in the morning to buy the ticket!!! Hahaha, MU fans are really kiasu ohhh. Not forget to mention that the ticket price is not expensive also, it start from as low as RM28 (for student), RM58, RM68, RM98 and up to RM308 for VIP. See the seating plan below for the different pricing zone.
I have purchased two RM98 tickets, one for my wife and one for me. Below is our tickets:
Finally, I have some time to blog again. It has been a busy week for me, I have been tied up with some projects and works. Guess what? Next week will be busy week as well, in fact, I will be busied this weekend.
First, my wife and I will be attending my sister-in-law’s wedding signing ceremony in the famous temple in KL. I will be the temporary photographer . After that, I will be heading down to my office and Digital Mall in PJ to buy some computer stuff for my project. Then, at night I will be watching MU game (of course) again. While watching the game, I need to prepare my seminar slides which will be happened next Tuesday in KL Hilton. On Sunday very early morning (I think should be 3am, dunno whether can wake up or not ), I will be heading to Broga Hill to take some sun rise photos with my friend. Quite busy, right? Anyway, I will try to enjoy it as much as possible .
And oh yeah, before I forget, MU MU MU, Champion Champion Champion. Yeah I know, it is already like a week time of news but I AM STILL VERY HAPPY that MU won Premier League Champion again!!! Yahooooo…..
I watched the game last week and it was really a nervous game until referee blow the final whistle, and from there onwards, everyone happy. Sir Alex, MU team players, fans, all are happy. Now, the next mission, Champion League Final on 27th May, very excited now. Anyway, I wish MU all the best and may MU bring the Champion back again…
This photos were taken last weekend when I went back to Malacca for Mother’s Day. It was taken with my Canon 400D, yeah, the photos might not so good but at least I tried. Anyway, let’s rock and roll. By the way, feel free to comment.

Once again, Manchester United produced one of the stunning performance last night against Arsernal in the Champion League Semi-Final. Both Ji-Sung Park and Ronaldo scored three times before Van Persie scored a penalty in the Emirates Stadium. That’s mean WE ARE ON THE WAY TO ROME…..
Unfortunately, Fletcher got a red card and that’s mean he will miss the final in Rome. That’s is really hurt because he has been one of the key member in almost of the key games. If you look at the replay again, you will see that he did touch the ball before Fabregas went down. I really feel sorry for him.
Anyway, I am very happy that MU has won the game and I cannot wait to watch the Final on 27th May.
I want to know roughly how much is responsibility? Can I buy it?
Recently when I worked with some of my engineers in the office, I noticed that they seems like lacking the sense of responsibility. That’s the reason why I want to know how much to buy responsibility. As an engineer, when you are handling a project, you are RESPONSIBLE to understand the whole project inside out. Do not just take things for granted.
I have been an engineer before, so I know how important is responsibility. If you are not a responsible person, you will do things without much preparation, you will do things without much thinking, you will do things without without any care (mean you don’t f*** care).
So guys, please always be prepared and take FULL RESPONSIBILITY.
Finally, I got my DSLR camera few days ago. It is a second hand Canon 400D with 18-55mm kit lens. Â Yes, it is second hand, not a new one. Reason? Simple, because I am a beginner without much experience with DSLR camera. So in stead of getting a new camera, I decided to take my friend’s advice to go for a second hand DSLR. Once I have a better skill and $$$, then only I will get myself a new good DSLR camera. So as a starter, second hand Canon 400D is a perfect choice for me.
Below are some photos taken by my Olympus Digital Camera:
Oh, by the way, you may wonder why I buy another camera since I already have Olympus Digital Camera, right? I think the most important reason is that Digital Camera can’t really take a good quality photo. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying Digital Camera is not good, just that I need a better camera to take better quality photo. Another reason is probably the shutter speed of the camera, my current Digital Camera is very slow in term of the shutter speed, so DSLR is the better one in this area. Third reason, and I think should be the final reason, I like to take landscape and night photo, so DSLR meet my requirement perfectly.
We are closer to Rome now, by leading a goal in the first leg of Champion League Semi Final, Manchester United has the chance of going to Rome for the Final against the winner of Chelsea vs Barcelona next week.
However, as mentioned, it is just the first leg only, MU needs to complete the job next Tuesday before thinking about Rome. One goal leading after the first leg game is normal, MU needs to ensure that they score in Emirates in order to enter into Final.
MU played a good game in the first leg game, from possession to contolling the game. In fact, they should have scored more than one goal, but no worry, I trust them.
One thing worried me is that Rio has injured during the game, hopeful the injury is not serious and he is able to come back next week.
Bravo, MU, the final is waiting for us…
