Zoey's First Swim Experience!

The idea of taking Zoey for a swim has been discussed before time and time again. When I found out that was organizing a swimming event I jumped to the opportunity to bring Zoey there for a swim.

This was held at TERRACE @ Hock Choon in Jalan Ampang, KL. Thanks for the organizers and the hosts to allow dogs to have a swim in their private pool and the restaurant was dog friendly! When we arrived there were a couple of dogs in the pool, alot of them 1st timers like Zoey and others were pro swimmers who could retrieve their toys from the deep end.

I got in the pool with Zoey and Sweetie took videos and photos. To our surprise Zoey was a fantastic swimmer! We're proud that she could swim so gracefully.

Do you like to bid on items?? Well there are plenty of sites out there that offer good bid prices for gadgets and all, but how about lifestyle items?

Here's where comes in, providing some very interesting products for dirt cheap prices. So how does it work? It's pretty simple, all items have a timer that counts down to zero, if you are the last bidder when the counter hits zero you win that item for whatever price is listed. If you can't afford to be in front of your computer then you have BOB which is an automated bidding bot that helps you bid while you're AFK (Away From Keyboard). I've been to other sites before but has something different for everyone.

Pretty simple stuff! With 3 easy steps you can start bidding :
Step 1 : Register an account
Step 2 : Buy Bids
Step 3 : Start Bidding

What are you waiting for?! Head on over there and start bidding on your favorite item! I saw a PS3 sold for RM12 or something like that.

Astro Beyond

We've been exposed to all the hype and commercials before and during the World Cup 2010 about Astro Beyond which brings HD quality TV programs. Is it worth it? Well for an additional RM20 per month it's pretty cheap. How about the quality? Excellent! If you have a Full HD ready LCD TV then the upgrade is worth it.

Although there are just a handful of HD channels, there will be more added over time. Watching NASCAR in HD is just simply super duper clear, you can read out the smallest sponsor sticker on the car believe it or not. As for other programs like HBO HD and AXN HD, movies and sitcoms never looked better! You can see every single detail on the actor's face expressions.

Current packages have a 1 year contract after you sign up before you can jump ship, so if you sign up you have to stick to the Beyond package for 1 year, minimum. Takes about 3-4 days to process before they call you to set an appointment to get the dish and unit replaced. The interface has also been updated for the Beyond package, which looks nicer.

WPPM Conference

I was asked to help out as an organizer with the WPPM team. Special thanks to Jack who thought of me and gave me an opportunity to help out at the event.

First of if you don't know what WPPM stands for, Wedding & Portrait Photographers Malaysia. This is a body that has been established to provide a platform for all Wedding & Portrait Photographers in Malaysia to advance in their arts & crafts by sharing knowledge and experiences to develop good and professional business ethics.

Day 1 saw some of Malaysia's top leading photographers giving a talk at the conference, on 3 separate platforms and even a live shoot workshop. Day 2 saw International award winning photographers sharing their knowledge, Lito Sy, Chrlie Lim & Jerry Ghionis. Awards were given out at the end of the day for some photos that were submitted for Canon Print Competition.

Congratulations to all the winners and Thank You WPPM for making this happen!!
