Ok, it is official. No, no. Anwar's not been sentenced for liwat.
I am migrating. Not physically tho' I do wish so - ah.. Paris would be really nice. Ok, I digress. I have moved the blog to www.eleventhshot.com
I am pretty sure a lot of you have visited the link above and after much thought, I have decided to switch it around and made my photog work the centre of attention - I was told by a lot of people I need to FOCUS :P
On this page, you can access to my work and also my blog. With that in mind, there will be more works to be done - I'm really reminding myself hehe. Thank you sooo very much for all your (continuous) support over the years and I am happy to say I am not discontinuing my blog - I was contemplating of writing if off from the long list of things I am involved at recently, you know (see above on the topic of FOCUS). But, I am happy to say, I did not.
Have a great week ahead!
ps: feel free to give feedback.

Ever wished that what you have said to a person came out completely not what you have intended it to be?
Ms Neighbour just got off the company's van and on both of her hands she had her luggages with her. The turquoise kebaya seemingly indicated that she works for a certain local airline.
Ms Neighbour: "Thank you!"
"No problem," I said as soon as she got into the lift. "Which flo..?"
"20th, please," she said rather quickly before I could finish my question. And, she said that with a smile. You know when a person says something with a smile or a scorn; you just know it, no?
"Nice bag you have there."
"Thanks. I've got it from Bangkok (and used to sell them, too)."
"Oh ok," again she said that with a smile.
"I miss Bangkok," I told her rather unusually friendly of me. I reckon I am friendly when the other person is extremely friendly. It's an indication that I open up easily if you are just the same :)
"Yeah? Where do you shop in Bangkok mostly?" she asked.
"Chatuchak ... erm, the usual places, you know."
"Yeah. Chatuchak is nice. The currency is still very strong, too."
"Yes, it is. Bangkok is a lot of fun." I told her with a smile, too.
"I know. My boyfriend is Thai."
I didn't see that coming but she is very friendly. If she had flew across the globe and worked non-stop for the last 12 hours, I really respect her for being so bubbly and manages to continue to be so good at what she does - be friendly.
Ting. It was my floor and before I exited, I had said, "Good luck!" with a smile, of cos. Then, as the door closed, it occurred to me.
Good luck? GOOD LUCK? w.t.f. I wished I could have a tad more time with her so I could apologise because I don't mean it as a bad thing. I don't even know why I'd say that!
ps: The moral of the story? Hmm, think before you speak? *shrug* I know it feels really good to be friendly :)

After months of weighing all aspects of *clear throats* stuff, I am finally prepared to launch my website, 11th Shot. Some of you might have already been given the opportunity to preview it and much changes has been done ... there will be, definitely, a whole lot more changes to come.
- To go to previous image starting from current, move mouse over the image and an arrow would appear. Start browsing thereonwards.
- To leave any comments (please feel free), click on 'DETAILS' on the top menu bar. No word limit as far as I am concerned.
- To change BACKGROUND COLOUR to black, click on the tiny little 'button' on top right (1st button from left) and voila!
- To see archive, simply click on archive.
- To write me a "love letter", email me at eleventhshot at gmail dot com (no spam pls, frenemies).
Preview of some of my Bali pictures - the first cos I am not uploading to my Facebook (just yet). Priority from now on will be my website.
Shot this whilst relaxing at Taman Ganesha. For the unbeknownst, Taman Ganesha is like this little garden, beautiful one I must add, along Seminyak beach that according to the beach manicurist in her sandy coarse voice, "Gay Beach". If you asked me, the most gay thing about this little garden is the Casablanca Lilies.
This was shot at Tanah Lot. The famous Tanah Lot temple esp. at sunset. Extremely touristy and many newly weds would take their wedding photos here. For what it's worth, it is really quite beautiful. Worth the ride esp if you're staying in Kuta.

That is how Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of the New York Times Bestseller, "Eat, Pray, Love", quoted in the last chapter of her book. Her journey in seeking spiritual guidance led her back to the beautiful island that is Bali - she was sent there before she embarks on her epic journey to cover a story on the practice of Yoga. The book itself is very funny tho' prior to picking up the book from the bookstore, I was presumptuous in thinking that it is just another chic lic - it may still be just another chic lic to a lot of men out there, really.
The decision to go to Bali was not at all made based on the book. If truth be told, I've decided to pick up the book one fine day in mid September while our decision to go Bali was made only in late September or early October - at that time, Liz (as she is affectionately known amongst her friends) was still in Italy, I think. In addition, we really wanted to go for a vacation, anywhere, but Bangkok (it was really a tough decision cos Bangkok is still a city that is much love by us), and the Airasia *promo came at the right time ;)
Now that I am back in town, how much of Bali that I've missed or did I at all miss her like how I've missed my minced pork salad in Chatucak? It was a sad departure. Seriously. I love Bali like how I'd love Thai massage and minced pork salad. I love Bali like how I'd love to eat Ibu Oka's seriously good, seriously famous, Babi Gulung (Gosh, did I just sound like a carnivore or what?). Bali, as Liz has famously sums it up, "Even in My Underpants, I feel Different". I will, I promise, to visit Bali again by which time, I will go around the island instead.
I will post more pictures of Bali soon - I am really, really pleased with many pictures I've shot. Stay tune.
*Airasia is without a doubt the airlines that I will continue to like although there are many wanna-be urban haute bourgeois think it is an airline for the "poor".
