Explore:Exhausted:Fun

Supposed to have a model shoot with some friends on Sunday, but the girls cant make it at the very last minute, so I became damm free for the whole Sunday. I dun think I want to sleep coz I've already slept away my Saturday ( went out twice to tapao McD, only ). So I called Maxx, as I remember it's his offday ...

:Pasar Seni -> Petalling Street
:Petalling Street -> Dataran Merdeka ( Lost and walked extra 15mins )
:Dataran Merdeka -> Tugu Negara ( Lost and walked extra 45mins, minimum)
:Tugu Negara -> KL Bird Park ( again lost, but not too far this time )
:KL Bird Park -> Low Yat Plaza ( Bare foot, don't asked me why )

Meet at Pasar Seni 1:30PM and begun our journey ~ Should have meet at Masjid Jamek, so dun need to walk the extra Kilometer. Damm, should have asked. Anyway, we decided not to drive, to avoid the Jam, getting lost in no where and the parking hazard. So the whole journey was on foot, just for your information...


Massive jam that we want to avoid. It's Sunday in KL ler.




While walking...walking ... walking ... I realized that I don't actually really 100% sure about the correct way to Tugu Neagara, as the lat time I been there was quite some times ago. As expected, we were lost. Thanks to the very informative road signs. We all that all the roads are linked, just a little further around if you got the wrong road.


Bumped into some participant of the Canon Photography Marathon.




Looking at those building that I never knew and I know that we were lost, at least not on the right road. Damm . But not worst coz there's someone else ( Maxx ) to talk to, I think I will probably call a cab if I'm lost all by myself, we know that it's not save in KL anymore, if you have been reading newspapers and know what I'm talking about.

It's Merdeka Day alright, you can tell from all the flags that's hanging around all over the place, once a year. So does that means we love our country once a year? Of it depends on how many flags you hang or how big is the flag you hang ? I love my country Malaysia, because .........



Even thought we know the name of the place we're at, we were at Tun Hussien Onn Memorial, but where the hell is that exactly ?!?!? Damm ... No GPS, no map, but there's a small Police Station there to ask, ask I think the police man was amazed by my fluent Malay, Maxx also amazed and said:" Damm, I would BELIEVE that you are malay if I don't know you ..! "

Getting lost and have a chance for good pictures ? Not as bad as we thought mah ~ At least we know that there's still places with hell alot of trees and warm breeze, for once I thought I was back in Sabah, with the same amount of green and the gentle wind that seems can go thru your body any bring away the tiredness and stress, God I love nature ~


Finally reached Tugu Negara, half dead. The weather was perfect for photography, but not for walking and not for the skin, I think I'll be 30% darker the next day. And thanks 100 PLUS ! You saved my life !



Didn't spent too much time in Tugu Negara thou, coz I've been there shooting before and the TUGU are backlit by the sun, so can be too creative with that. And also the tourist.

Maxx asked:" Eh, last time you come what day ah ? Why your picture so clean ( no HUMAN ) one ?" I answered:" I come in weekdays lah ... ofcoz no people to kacau lah ..." The Japanese couple have been standing for about 10mins as I waited for them, I'm not sure if they love the sunshine or they are really amazed by the Tugu, forgot to asked.



Even the sun were burning us sky hi, but there're shelter from the tree. It might be very Yao Yeng to walk like a tourist under the hot sun, but we try not too. Don't want to go work with sunburn the next day.

Over all it's not very fun for youngster ( under the age of 45 ) to visit, but it's worth going there to look at tourists that were amazed by our history, to look at the nicely build building, to understand the meaning of Hari Merdeka ( it's not just another pulic holiday, okay?) and to look at some Japanese Chicks if you are lucky.


About 15mins of walking and we were at the biggest bird park in the world ! or izzit Asia ah ? Initially we want to visit the Butterfly farm that's just a stone throw away ( throw it really really hard ! ), but the RM15 stopped us. Coz we have not time to wait for the butterfly to stop infront of us and let us take pictures, and by the looking of the 'farm' I doubt it will worth the RM15. So we go to the KL Bird Park that's the largest in the world, or it's Asia ah? For RM15 I think it's more worth it. At least we can see 'birds' ~ hehehe.


Dont worry about peacock, there's hell alot of peacock and we thought we went to the Peacock Park instead ~
This is what we've been waited whole day long ... The Open Tail Ceremony ... An uncle even run down from the hill side to take take pictures, I bet we is running as the speed of stopping the police man to give saman ... hahahhaha.

And the Peacock backside .... As rare as the Open Tail Ceremony.


The second bird we come across. A very Yao Yeng Pelican. 1 Day must eat 2KG of fish. It just stay there and let people to go very near to it for taking pictures. A Guai Lou even have it Video-graphed ~ The nearest I can go is 4 inches from it's eye, but the picture not nice so didnt post.





Another frequent bird around the park. They are everywhere, and I must say they are the best poser. They can stay there and pose for you as long as you want ~

Without the Hairdo ....

And a candid shoot ... how's that ?

And some other birds in the park ........


This is the bird with the funniest voice. It sounds something like Sport Cars at 7000RPM ... Or more like Mat Rempit's bike. Ngeeeenngg ~~~ nggeennnngg ~~~


I wish I had a longer lens for this picture, at least the bird will appear along bigger in the picture.


Can you see my in the eye ? And sorry for waking you up from your sweet dream MR Owl.

Walking around in the bird park was fun, or at least more informative than the road signs in KL. We tend to know the bird's name lah, their habitat lah... The downside would be no chicks around to look at loh. And the overdose perfume from the tourist. I guess the birds will faint if they are too near to the tourist ... OOhh... no wonder the birds keep their distance from human lah ....

Taken on the way out ...

And I just cant stop laughing ... And I saw something unpleasant scene. A car is park at the road side ( single lane ), just at the corner. The owner of the car stopped and actually parked there to look at the monkeys and let the kids to feed the monkeys. Oh man, I truely believe that the owner should know how dangerous it is to stopped the car and the road side, summore corner, as every parent will claim they have the most driving experience in the world and then they are still doing it. The spot where they stopped are just 500 meter away from the Carpark and how difficult it can be to park the car there and have your owns sweet time to feed the monkey? I wonder if it's the Law's not good enuff or is the Ethics not good enuff. Double Park lah ( I prefer to call it Illegal Parking ), cutting queues lah, no signal lah, driving 30kmh on the Hi Way lah. .... damm ...

Continue our journey to LowYat Plaza, bare foot. We want to experience the earth with our feet ~ We just had enuff of our shoes ~ hahahaha. Some dumbass ~ heheheheh. Well, other than the irresponsible driver and his family, the day was great. Get the chance to walk around KL to know more about the place we are living in, to feel the Malaysian Heat, to get a blister on my foot .... Thanks Maxx, for the company ~
