Winner for theclickshop's random Christmas gift giveaway

I couldn't remember the last time I ever won anything.  But this is the best feeling.  I feel so high (this is seriously not farnie, I might end up in a loony bin).

Anyways, remember this tag blog post about it last week (last Wednesday to be exact)? Aww, you don't?  click this link, here.  I'm the winner! YATTA!  It was announced on the 27th Dec 2009, the time when I just came back from my day trip to Kundasang.  Amy C thanks for informing me via plurk.  I wouldn't have known.  Btw, the winner announcement, here.



I though, didn't know wut the prize was.  I didn't know what to expect, well since TCS never announce/mention about the prize either.  It got me curious, so curious that I was cracking my brains.  I sent my details on the 28th Dec and waited for a reply.  And got reply and was given the tracking number yesterday (mind you) and all in just two (2) days.  Talking about efficiency ei?  That was fast.  And was informed that my package will arrive in 2 days.

Still curious with what is in the package.  I was doing the online Pos Laju track and trace thing whole day.  It got me really excited.  Till (not sure wut time) I noticed the status changed to item in KK.  I got even more excited.  I waited, and waited, and waited.  But my package haven't arrive.  I tried calling Pos Laju center but it was engage till 4pm.  I kept on dialing and dialing and dialing till 20 minutes later, I got connected and enquired about my package.  The lady told me that the postman who're handling my area is on leave (typical) and I will most likely receive my package the next day with a different postman.  Though, she's not sure when I'll receive it.  Now, knowing how slow postman could be sometimes, I decided to go collect it myself.  I do it often enuff actually.  I should never be given tracking numbers.  I get all jumpy.  Anyways, it was 4:30pm when I left the office and I got to the post office 15 mins before 5pm.  They close at 5pm btw.

Got my package and couldn't wait to rip off.  I mean the box.  But before I did that, I had to take photo of the box hehe.  Typical massy rite?


Nice "touch" to the Xmas Wish :)

Guess wut's inside?

A superheadz 35mm film camera.  The White Slim Angel version.  I was left speechless.  Something really nice to add up to my collection.  Guilty~  I haven't finish the film from the Holga yet XD  Flannie, my young sifu is coming home! Sifu, I need guidance.  Kekekeke. 

Haven't tested it yet.  I'll just gonna post up photos of it first.  I'll try it soon.  I promise.

 

Please ignore my oily face.  Anyways, OMG what a coincidence.  I was wearing white today. 

>And here's some shots of some of the camera angles.









 



 
 

 

Enough angles?

Wait!  I'm not done yet.  Where can you get these?

>theclickshop (here's the link).

Photos leeched from TCS.

Anyways the features.
  • Ultra wide angle lens, 22mm.
  • Awesome vignetting effect.
  • Lightweight and very simple to use, just load the film and start shooting!
  • Uses 35mm film.
I can't wait to test it! :)  Wait for my next post XD

[27th Dec 2009] Kundasang Trip (Day 2)

Rise and shine!!! (*queue the cardigans).

I was nearly having a nice sleep till my bro called and woke me up slightly before 8am to take photo of Mount Kinabalu.  We got the perfect view from our room window.  Natural air day and night.  No air-conditioning.  It's also creepy if you ask me.





Took those with two (2) different camera.

Packed and brought my bag to the car.  We haven't check out yet, I just dun need my bag in the room.



Went to look for breakfast.  Went to Strawberry garden.  But there's no strawberries *sad.  Not strawberry season *sigh.  And they only serve fried noodles there.  Went to another place along the road but that place have one (1) waitress and one (1) cook, takes too much time and looks like they only serve fried noodles too.  Dad sort of got bored with fried noodles.  Imagine 3 days different company meeting serve the same noodle.  BORING~



Went to Nabalu Lodge just so it's convenient and more choice.  We notice people eat fried noodles in the morning.  Don't they get bored?

Our order





See, this whole taking photo thing, I got that from my dad.  He's the one with the gadgets and $$ XD



Got some cheesecakes too.  Aren't those tempting.  I don't know how it taste though.

Check out my raves, here.

Drop by the fruit stalls around 10am.



 

We went to the Kundasang War Memorial at around 10:13am.  Entrance fee for MyKad Holder is RM2.00, foreigners is RM10.00.

On the wall outside.

 

 

Pay first before enter.



The entrance.


 
The path from the entrance, surrounded by trees and orchids.

 

Next, you get to see these.  Newspaper clippings and information about the place.







There are three (3) types of garden.

Australian Garden.


 
 

English Garden.



  

And our very own local garden.  Opps, I forgot to take photo of that.  Lotsa orchids.

 




And the most common place to take photo when one visit this place.





 

From of the valley.

 


Dad friend showed us something that's not on display there.  Human skull.



The hall was closed for christmas holiday.  But dad's friend open it for us.  ;) lucky!



Inside the hall.

 

 


One of those things that I always wanted to take photo of.  I love you dad!  Thanks for looking for it.  ;)  Paddy field. 



Around Tuaran, the road going back to Kota Kinabalu.  I didn't know they selling these there.  I thought only Kudat sells this.  Oh I found out they selling "Jagung Bakar" at Tg. Aru too.  This was 1:30pm btw.  Damn HOT!
