Back from Kuala Lumpur

I just returned from Kuala Lumpur. Went there to attend BarCamp Malaysia. I’ll blog more on that soon.

I saw the majestic Petronas Twin Towers at Kuala Lumpur City Center too. My phone camera won’t do justice to her:

And visited Suria KLCC too. Mall organization resembles Suntec City and the mall content reminds me of Vivocity – trendy for everyone. Suria was the cleanest mall I been to in KL. Lots of tourists there too:

With the exception of the food center, Suria is spacious and easy to navigate.

It’s my first visit to Kuala Lumpur, second visit to Malaysia. I only visited the metropolitan area.

Widgeous pantry room and my camera

These days I’ve been taking pictures of almost everything. I could, possibly, be a photo journalist one day with the amount of pictures that I am taking. I took pictures of food. The following is Ridzuan’s favorite Hello Panda food. He finishes half a box and his eye lids are heavier than those of pandas.

Widgeous pantry room

I work at Widgeous, this is our make-shift pantry room. We don’t lock our food, so far there are no unaccountable food. Snacks that graced Widgeous includes Hello Panda, Kit Kat, Oreo, Lexus, fake Kinder Bueno and more. Ridzuan is probably our unofficial chief pantry officer. I like biting on pandas.

Three years back I was talking about mobile phone with inbuilt cameras with Gowri. And she raved how useful and great the idea is to place a camera in the mobile phone. I said it was just a fad and it’ll go away after a couple of years. Today… Well…

You’re right Gowri. And I’m addicted. I don’t snap pictures of people, but I snap a lot of pictures of animals and objects.

Almost all the pictures in this blog is taken on Samsung U600 which has the tendency of being overexposed, dully-colored and its 3.2 megapixel looked like 1.6 megapixel with a 2x digital zoom. But Photoshop always saves the day. I got this custom action just to re-adjust the colors back.

With the phone camera, I took pictures of things I find odd and post it up. It takes a bit of time for sure but I am beginning to feel a need to archive my memories. I only take pictures when I am out of my house, and when I’m out of my house I’m usually eating. So you see lots of food photographs such as the one above.

At Ridzuan’s birthday party yesterday

Was at Ridzuan’s place yesterday. It’s his birthday and I didn’t just realized ™ until I saw Facebook.

Ridz is into some web cam thing these days, he has quite a following when he points the camera to Uzyn while working. Here’s DK setting up the web cam to show everyone they can’t have the pizza we’re eating:

Maybe a blogger’s dream come true. Even parties are streamed live to the web. Yeah, we had Hawaiian pizza. By the way, most Singaporeans only heard 2 things about Hawaii, they’re a nice island and they have pizza.

It’s a potluck, I brought (or bought) chicken nuggets. The food is good, unfortunately we can’t finish them. Here’s the cake, badly mutilated with candles:

The cake is really good by the way. We talk about food, erm politics and image processing. Shared YouTube videos too. Happy birthday Ridzuan! This party, there’s around 12 people. Additionally, three laptops came anyway. By the way, it’s Uzyn’s birthday too. Happy birthday Uzyn!

Similarities between Trac and army

There was this once when we had to write our profiles on the website.

Trac a popular issue tracker is like army both arrows

Ridz opened a ticket in Trac, assigned the work to me. I accepted the task but Aen decides this should be Ridz’s job and pushed it back to him. Ridz then push it back to Uzyn and I. It’s pretty funny the way Trac works. Trac is a popular issue tracker that reminds me of army.
