R&R At Dewan Perdana Felda

16th April 2011 I went down to Dewan Perdana Felda. Yeah, doesn’t sound like the glitziest name, but guess what?

It is g-r-a-n-d!

And so, I was there for a Ruzy and Reez wedding. Yes they were both getting married the same day, in the same hall. To each other, of course.

Bright lights, but the white dress and the lady can fight.

Camwhore time! Thanks to Faiz for taking this shot.

Alright Ruzy I know you got married but don’t disappear from the scene, come out and bump into me just before gigs and shows like you used to!

Faiz and Evanna.

What a funny incident that was, since he was sitting in the next table and I thought he was someone else who I’d never met before, but followed on Twitter. So I DM-ed the other dude and he said he wasn’t there. I then stood in front of Faiz and asked, “are you…” I was surprised when he recognized me!

And so, we ended up geeking out as we did before. Instead of about Sony Alpha we geeked out about smartphones – him with his heavily modded Jailbroken iPhone 4 with a Home button that isn’t responsive anymore, and my rooted HTC Desire. An interesting, solid technical discussion that was! I later went home wondering if people who go through all that effort to Jailbreak and add notifications, proper Bluetooth support, widgets, fake live wallpapers, launchers and all… would be much better served by an out-of-the-box Android, that already does all that. And that people don’t understand at all how multitasking works.

I found out later that his phone got stolen, and he replaced it with a Samsung Galaxy S2, Samsung’s flagship Android phone. Congratulations on welcoming the green robot, dude! I don’t think I know anybody else who has gone from been a Symbian geek to a Meego geek to a iOS geek to an Android geek!

Putrajaya Walk

On the 2nd of September 2010, I took a 2-hour walk from the Putrajaya ERL station to Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside Hotel. This was where I started – at the ERL.

A helipad!

I find it funny, since a helicopter, heck no a plane, could land anywhere in Putrajaya, because of all the space!

Gotta love the Sony greens. This was from the Sony NEX-5 with Sony E 16mm F2.8 pancake lens.

The Zeiss 135mm F1.8 ZA was mostly on my A900, providing an interesting, compressed perspective of Putrajaya.

It pointed up at the bridge…

…and down below it.

Gridlock, something you never see on the road.

Putrajaya is always hot and sunny.

Sweep Panorama with the NEX-5. Effect was intentional!

Keys to the city.

In front of the Putrajaya International Convention Center.

Mission success: Get some color in my skin!

So why did I take a 2-hour suntan/walk? To head to the Sony Power of Digital Imaging launch at Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside Hotel, that’s why:
