While waiting for showtime at a very, very crowded Secret Recipe, we were joined by Naz of the Faithful Blog.
And a bit later, Sue's cousin Syuhaida turned up. Since our group's now complete, we proceeded to enter.
Will you look at that! It's been a while since I've been chopped at the entrance. Photo credit to Syuhaida- love the composition!
Syuhaida and Sue while waiting for the show to start. Same scenario as above. Strike a pose, ladies!
Finally, Dina Nazir came on stage to present Yuna. At this point I realized that a 50mm lens is not going to be sufficient for taking photos at this range.
...until towards the end, at least. When I threw all caution to the wind and started snapping whatever image I could capture.
After the show, we joined this horrendously long queue with the aim of buying the album. Fortunately we figured out that this queue was for meeting Yuna so we shifted to a very much shorter queue to purchase the album.
Then we headed for Restoran Vichuda Tomyam in Damansara Utama for supper. It was my first time there and I found the atmosphere to my liking.
I love this photo! Not Sue's best pose but if you're a lips man, look no further guys! Here's your girl!!!
As usual, at any new tomyam restaurant, I will order ladna with mixed tomyam or chicken soup (depending on my mood). These are my benchmarks for good southern Thai food.

The image it often brings to my mind is of a dog, delicately sniffing at it, then raising one hind leg and...
This is the general fate of the fire hydrant.
It gets pissed on, dirtied and even vandalized at times.
Cars park right by it, blocking access.
Mostly, it is invisible.
It is almost totally disregarded.
However, when the need emerges, when a fire breaks out, it is the first thing the rescuers look out for.
It suddenly becomes the centre of attention, a lifeline, a source of hope.
Then just as suddenly it ends.
And the humble fire hydrant fades into the background once more.
But it is ever present, waiting resignedly for the time when it may be needed once again.
Do you know someone like that?
It could be that you have encountered that someone before?
Perhaps even used that someone?
I hope one day, it will suddenly dawn on you and any other person, that these people are special, that they are to be appreciated, because once they are gone, there is no use for regrets.
Ceramah terakhir yang sempat diikuti disampaikan oleh wedding photographer Malaysia yang paling banyak menang international awards: Keda-Z.
Sementara menunggu detik 12.00 malam, Wan ajar aku cara nak amik gambar night landscape yang fantastic camni! Ini semua prelude kepada target kami malam tu- pertunjukkan bunga api tahun baru Putrajaya!
Masalahnya, kami tak dapat info yang tepat tentang lokasi bunga api tu nanti. Untuk selamat, Wan cadangkan kami set up awal di Monumen Milenium.
...bunga api! Memang betul-betul 'bunga' apilah! Dari tempat kami tengok, saiz pun comel macam bunga.
