Rare Partial Lunar Eclipse

Read the newspaper and saw an article regarding "Rare Partial Lunar Eclipse". First thing that came to my mind is to stay up and take picture of it :) Since I'm trying to improve my night photography skills, so I thought taking the photo of eclipse will be a challenge. It's not an easy task to do though.

I tried to sleep early but failed to do so! So I waited till 3.35am where the upper left limb of the moon starts to darken. So here it is..

Wasn't that happy with the outcome though but it was my first trial and probably I need to get a better lens to capture this phenomenon again on 1 January 2010.

Firework at Serasa - A disappointment

Another firework shooting to the clear sky tonight at Serasa Beach in conjunction with His Majesty 62nd Birthday. The public were informed that the firework start at 8.30pm.

Firstly, we decide where is the best location to see the firework. We prefer not to go to the beach cos we know it will be fully packed. So we decide to go near the Ferry Terminal. Thinking that not many people will go there, we were shocked to see people have been parking their car along the road!

We went round to look for parking and eventually found one. We find a nice spot to see the firework and to take picture of the firework. We waited and waited and nothing can be seen on the sky except for few stars and half moon.

Time strike 8:30pm and nothing! Time strike 8:45pm and nothing!! Time strike 9:01pm and BOOM BOOM BOOM...we were looking around where the firework is and we can't see it properly as there is a building blocking it!! So we walk further up and manage to see wee bit of the firework!

Manage to snap few pictures as I wasn't impress with the location where I took the picture.

Going home is a nightmare!! People just cutting queue! Well, we do enjoy the firework although we hardly can see the beauty of it.

WOW!! What a lovely number isn't it? So what do you think that number represent? As far as I know the number 8 is a lucky number among the Chinese like me :)

But the most important event that will happen on 080808 is the Olympic which will be held in China today! It is said to be the biggest sports show on earth! More ironic is that the opening ceremony of the Olympic in China will be at 8pm. There are lots of eight used for this event! hehe.. Can't wait to watch the opening later!I'm sure there will be few love birds in Brunei who will miss the Olympic opening ceremony as they will be walking along the aisle for the start of their new life as husband and wife. According to the news that I read few weeks ago that most of the popular restaurant and hotel in Brunei are fully booked for their wedding ceremony. And there will be one couple that I heard that, their wedding will be on 08 08 08 and also start at 8 pm.

I will not be surprise if there are many chinese mother gave birth today!
