Paintball Rakan Muda Novice Cup 2007

January 13th, 2007 | Bob Tahar

Another paintball collections. The sport is gaining popularity here in Malaysia, every month and every states there will be a tournament. This time its the Rakan Muda Paintball Challenge for the Novice Cup. Held at a Paintball Academy Field behind Armada Hotel PJ.

The previous paintball blog was captured with Nikkor 70-300mm G Lens and compare with Sigma 28-300mm DG Lens used today, both of them behave similarly only advantage to sigma for its wide aspects.

The net conditions of the field not that good, too many ripple thus effects the pictures quality. Tight and straighten net can void blurriness in the picture.

Monsoon Trip To Kuala Terengganu

January 8th, 2007 | Bob Tahar

Maybe its the wrong time of the year, but hey I’ve made up my mind and this the only time I have. Trip to Kuala Terengganu in Monsoon Season! (4-6/1/2007). This is my 1st trip there, my farthest destination in Terengganu were Kijal & Kemaman.

Nice weathers on traveling day to Terengganu, 2nd day a little bit rain here & there but the 3rd day the weather full of sunshine and a blue sky. Traveling day to home, my worst but best experience yet on long distance driving. Monsoon storm all the way, some of the road closed right after I pass thru. The wave!!! along the route thru Rantau Abang, reminds me of the movie ‘Perfect Storm’.

Well, thank god I manage to arrive home safely. All picture taken with Sigma 28-300mm DG Lens. Not the best picture pics IMHO with the gloomy weathers, but I have a very memorable trip.
