It was hot...it was tiring..but it was fun. One by one..my cousins slowly are joining the married men geng and hopefully the daddy`s club. Now i understand why pro wedding photogs need at least two cameras on standby at all time...group photo with a 70-200 lens almost cost me my dignity as i almost fell down the drain trying to capture that last person on the left..cheh!
We have had our quarterly safety talk at the office today and this time it featured Road Safety. The safety team invited the dudes from Megamas co. who are supposedly specialists on this topic. I had the opportunity to ask about the practice practiced by us Bruneians to stick leaves on the back of their car as a sign of car breakdown.
Their answer was there is no safety guidelines in Brunei indicating so but its just a Bruneian methophorical way to say my car rosak i.e. breakdown ( Break daun) and hence the sticking leaves on the back of their car...geddit? Hehe.
Another fantastic outing organized by the BSRC photogs. This time the group went for a beach photo hunting at one of the under rated Bruneian ground, The Kuraman Island. As a first timer to this island, i see lots of potentials with this small piece of land. Its beautiful, its peaceful, its in the middle of nowhere ( not exactly true as Labuan is just a snap away) perfect for a weekend getaway for Bruneians, expats and tourists. I can already imagine chalet and villas built around the beach or even some on the beach itself..hmmm.
Anyway i think none of us went back with more than one gig in the bag as we were busy snorkeling, swimming, banana boating and sunbathing. It was a great day out and we came back again not only with a sore ass from the boat trip but also bruises and cuts from the corals and banana boat tumbledown...but its all worth it.
Our little He-Boy is officially 4 months old this week. He is so much fun to play with now. Every little silly moves seems to trigger a smile and if we are a lucky..a big laugh. He can flip, he can grab, grasp and quite good at waking us up for work with either a poke on our eyes or little scratch on our cheeks..nice!
He is slowly looking more like mommy now and amazingly there are some signs indicating that that he is cutting his first tooth as we can see some white stuff poking out of his gum. However like a saying it aint over till the fat lady sings..till then guess we will have to wait and see...
