Our Own Etihad Towers in Putrajaya

Our Own Etihad Towers. I knew I have an image of 3 tall towers and it kept nudging my memory when I looked at the Jumeirah Hotel at Etihad Towers (see previous post at MyCen Hotels), I piloted a drone in Precint 5 Putrajaya one fine day and captured this threesome. Can someone help me label or identity the government bodies or agencies that occupy each of the buildings? #putrajaya #skysvapers #ethihad #drone #towers #malaysia

The Flower Bridge Symphony

The Flower Bridge Symphony.

An opportune time to explain Chelsea Ng's use of Flower Bridge comment in her colleague Veera Pandiyan Manickam's post comment. For non native Chinese speakers, you may have seen it or heard it, Even for many Chinese, it can be baffling and puzzling. I think I first heard it as a joke in the 90s.

In Cantonese, flowers is Fah, And bridge is Kiu, So combined,phonetically it sounds like a loving "Fuck You".

In Memory of Uncle Bernard Khoo

Silver Sea

On a rainy day, the former South China Sea and Gaya Island were part of a glittering silver landscape. Photographed from our Kota Kinabalu apartment hotel Marina Court with the late Bernard Khoo (blogger Zorro Unmasked) blowing smoke from his pipe, next to me. I told Bernard the landscape may soon become gold. Bernard passed away on 4th April 2014.

The Half Jungle

The Half Jungle

Since SJK (C) Chong Fah Phit Chee was founded 109 years ago, in 1909, it gives an indication as to how long ago the Chinese community settled in Pudu.

Till today, Pudu is still known as Half Jungle in Chinese. It harkens back to the early development days of Kuala Lumpur when it was partially developed..

Half Jungle was the area between Pudu Jail and Cheras. Search to see my photo essay on Pudu Market for more insights.

The Old Jetty In Tanjung Sepat, 10 Years Ago.

Love the power of social media networking. My long time Instagram follower @jaschintaz sent me an old pic of her wedding day at the old jetty in Tanjung Sepat, 10 years ago! What a sweet couple, weren't they? Her husband CS is a native of the town. If you remember, I mentioned that the old jetty collapsed. See how charming the old jetty was albeit being quite rickety then. Thanks Jas for sharing. Now my story about the new and old jetties is complete. See my earlier post about the new jetty titled "Time And Tide Wait For No Man Or Woman".

Peaceful Easy Feeling

Peaceful Easy Feeling - The Swamps of The Gold Coast

Loved how serene the swampy coastline and the mangrove stumps appeared near the Persatuan Sukan Layar Selangor (Sailing Sports Association). Soothing in every way.

"I like the way your sparkling earrings lay,
Against your skin, it's so brown.
And I wanna sleep with you in the desert tonight
With a billion stars all around"

Peaceful Easy Feeling was a song recorded by The Eagles in 1972. They don't write songs like this anymore.

Golden Sands Of Desaru

Golden Sands Of Desaru

I first went to Desaru on a leisurely, unplanned roadtrip, maybe 20 years ago, with Ken Chia and a bunch of other friends. We went via Kota Tinggi waterfall and I remember Desaru as very deserted. Desolation is a rare charm nowadays, though.

It is still relatively quiet and lonely. I like it this time on this second trip with Sharon. It was quite idyllic and beautiful. Desaru is near the southern tip of the peninsular facing the former South China Sea.
