The Open House Celebration at Bingkor and Bandukan, Keningau was a great one. I personally had a blast. Thanks to our dearest friends, Mr. Andy and Mr. Danjoe, my Christmas wouldn't be merrier. These are some of the photos I've taken during the party in both venues. More of the photos can also be viewed at http://nedelicious.fotopages.com.
Children, sleeping. Snow is softly falling. Dreams are calling, Like bells in the distance. We were dreamers, Not so long ago. But one by one, we All had to grow up.
When it seems the magic slipped away... We find it all again on Christmas Day.
Believe in what your heart is saying, Hear the melody that's playing. There's no time to waste, There so much to celebrate. Believe in what you feel inside, Give your dreams the wings to fly. You have everything you need, if you just believe.
Trains move quickly To their journey's end. Destinations... Are where we begin again. Ships go sailing, Far across the sea. Trusting starlight, To get where they need to be.
When it seems that we have lost our way... We find ourselves again on Christmas Day.
Believe in what your heart is saying, Hear the melody that's playing There's no time to waste, There so much to celebrate. Believe in what you feel inside, And give your dreams the wings to fly. You have everything you need, if you just Believe.
If you just believe. If you just believe. If you just believe...just believe...just believe.
Nope, I haven't watch A Christmas Carol yet. And I missed both Ondu and Nel's pre-Christmas party. I'm at home trying to figure out what's the best thing that had happened in my life this 2009.

You lose something, you gain something. That's how life is and was. Been blessed with a loving family and relatives. And my Elparanza Family, you guys are still the best.
Met new friends along the way. I miss you guys too. And I believe that you guys came for a reason, if not reasons, in my life. Thanks for making my year even worth living.
New hobby, photography. Yup, still learning and learning.

Dear Santa, don't give me the crap that you know whether or not I have been good or bad. I didn't say you exist neither do I say you're not. I see in movies, yes, long beard, amazing cute tummy, those eyes with glasses and that red attire and your ho ho ho too. And some version, with Mrs. Claus! Don't get me wrong. I have nothing againgst you and I hope you don't take my word seriously but please, send me blissful love and tenderness. Not in a box. Oh, I forgot. Send me my Christmas spirit again.... Long, once upon a time, 9 years ago. Hard. Tough.
I miss you dad, you're my first man!
I'm sure the best is yet to come and I will wait patiently.
I want to feel how good it was to love and be loved, again.
I want to further my study.
Hope my apartment is done!
2010, come what may.
I love God. And I love my family. And relatives. And friends. And my career too.
I love photography so much. In so many ways, I'm still learning and still need to improve. Recently, I managed to capture the most intriguing butterfly I ever saw. It didn't fly away although I was quite close to it. I don't have a macro lens, yet, and because of that, I need to be closer to the object I needed to snap. Coming back to the butterfly, not only that it didn't run but it also models, giving me a number of beautiful snaps. These are some of the photos.
I'm new and yes, there's still so much more to learn..
Entry kali ini bermula sangat humble. Clash antara dua benda, perjumpaan besar-besaran Elparanza dan kedatangan teman-teman dari Kuching dan Miri.
Sangat ternanti-nanti keduanya, takut mengecewakan juga. Jadi entry untuk ini adalah kunjungan mereka ke Kota Kinabalu. Ada yang baru dan ada juga yang lebih baru. Kadang-kadang takut juga untuk mendekatkan diri. Tapi sekarang takut dilupakan.
Mungkin perasaan itu ganjil tapi ada. Harap akan terus ada. Dengan sedikit motivasi, mungkin berupa sms atau kadang-kadang panggilan telefon mahupun YM atau facebook, rasanya perasaan itu tidak akan hilang.
Mungkin entry ini pendek sebab rasanya mereka tahu betapa beberapa hari ini penuh dengan kesibukkan sendiri dan kejayaan peribadi mengenali dengan lebih dekat mereka-mereka yang terbabit. Jadi, dari pandangan jauh dan mata kasar, rasanya mereka tahu betapa mereka akan diingati dan dikenang selalu. Masih banyak pokok-pokok batu, rokok-rokok, gambar-gambar dan minuman yang belum habis, jangan malu-malu membawa kaki ke sini lagi.
Sambil baring-baring meneliti gambar yang diambil, rasanya rasa rindu semakin menebal. Ah, esokla meneliti gambar. Sambung rindu esok pula.
Studio photo shoot at Ondu's Home Studio gave me the opportunity to work with lights and of course editing. I still have so much to learn and I am grateful my other photographer friends for sharing the experience, knowledge and skills that they have. This is my first experience on studio photography and hope I can learn and expand more.
Hari ini entry, bukan pasal saya... Dipesan untuk mengisi poket sebelum bergerak ke sana buat saya tertanya-tanya tapi tidak apa. Nasib ada projek penanggung makan dan belanja. Dia kata dia sudah jumpa jalan itu. Baguslah. Memang semua orang harus jumpa jalan-jalan dalam hidup. Kadang-kadang saya juga jumpa jalan di tengah jalan, tapi saya takut terus pusing ke belakang atau tidak bergerak langsung. Jadi bila orang lain jumpa jalan dan terus berjalan, saya sedikit cemburu dan terharu. Bangga dengan mereka.
Ada sebabnya mengapa dia jumpa jalan itu. Saya dapat merasakan betapa jalan itu sudah ditunggu-tunggu lama. Biarlah dia teman-teman. Itu suka dan hidup dia. Pastinya dia cukup sedar apa yang terbaik dalam hidup dia.
... I shall be telling this with a sigh, Somewhere ages and ages hence, Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and I - I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.
Ko sudah jumpa jalan itu. Baguslah. Tapi saya, bila lagi...???
Okay fine! It's not like what I expected it to be but it's okay. Learning from my past experiences, books are always better than the movie. They skipped many scenes but I can take that. It would be impossible to follow everything from the book, don't you guys think? They left a few parts out, but it was for cinematic reasons and the missing parts did not seriously effect the overall understanding of New Moon. Books are always more detail than movies. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the movie. Better sight of the lines now, if you know what I mean.
I know it's not fair to compare but we have to do it to understand the series more, or at least the movie, for some who haven't read the books yet.
I' now reading Eclipse, the 3d series of the Saga. I've read Stephenie Meyer is coming out with the 5th book, Midnight Sun but because of leaking case, I'm still not sure whether or not, she's going to continue writing it. Btw, I have all 4 books of the Twilight Saga Series :p
I am aware that most readers of the book are girls. As I watch the movie last Sunday, girls from all corners of my side were like giggling, sighing and even screamed. I forgive them for sure, hahaha. It's their thing maybe. Edward and Jacob as well as the Quileutes brothers are indeed studs.
The Warewolves Quileutes
But honestly, this second installment of the series may satisfy hardcore fans, but outsiders, those who haven't read or watch Twilight are likely to be turned off by its slow pace, relentlessly downcast tone and excessive length. In the absence of the first movie, the connection between Bella and Edward didn't seem quite as strong. Bella seemed tortured after Edward left but the book expressed it better then the movie.I've read reviews of this movie and the conclusion is, people will either love it or hate it. How about you people?
I just leave you guys with that thought. But I am still a fan of the Twilight Saga. The movie was good but I think the book is better.
P/s: I don't know. Although there's only little of Dakota Fanning in the movie, somehow, she managed to 'overlapped' all the other characters? Was it just me or she's THAT good?
