It’s Bersih 4.0 Day

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Event

What an eventful Saturday.
I’m postponing the Street Eats photographs for another day and dedicate this blog post for Bersih 4.0.

Note: Do credit me as the photographer if you’re grabbing pictures off my blog. I’d appreciate that very much.

Armageddon Expo 2014

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Event, Gaming

 We queued for 40 minutes just to sing a 4 minute song. It was so worth it though. We sang ‘I Love It’ by Icona Pop and scored 2.8 million points! 😛

While queuing for Singstar, we saw plenty of awesome cosplayers like these Pad Men. Lolol.

I reckon these two were the best out of all. They looked so damn bad ass!

 I can’t imagine how tired this kid got at the end of the day. Extremely adorable when he started to just push the cardboard box to move forward instead of carrying it. Hahaha

 We wanted the ‘I am the one who knocks’ poster so bad… It’s such a shame that we encountered two upsetting Breaking Bad moments.
First, the only nice looking poster sold out.
Secondly, we saw GUS FRING. BUT HE DIDN’T WANT TO HAVE A PICTURE WITH US.
Boohoo, cry us a river. ):

Amazing artwork. Wish the prints were slightly cheaper though..

Such a cool idea, ey?

Feels like Diablo 2 in real life.

 Support Level 13 on Kickstarter! They have a pretty interesting concept of Left for Dead in the real world.
I can’t wait for them to actually happen. Playing Co-op missions with friends in real life would be so much fun.

 

Walter White-look-a-like

As usual, we over order. We have this serious food problem that we need to fix soon.

Duruje Festival and Diwali Weekend

 A pretty good idea for a replacement of an ice cream cone… But it tastes horrible! ):

I’m quite curious about their love relationship. Lol.

 Pretty girls everywhere…

 Pretty boys everywhere… … …

Diwali Festival

 After watching the first episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show… I’m just gonna lay off clowns for a bit.

 Look, human children in hamster balls!

The henna quality was pretty shit, to be honest. Wasted $15 and a whole lot of time.

I promise I’ll update more frequently now. Got scolding from Miss Yukiko already. ):

Super Supporting Gather Gather!

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Event, Photography

I went to Gather without knowing what Gather really is about. My sister asked if I wanted to volunteer to help out and I just said ‘OK I’M IN.’ I’m so thankful I had the opportunity to attend Gather as I’ve met so many wonderful people and learnt so much in one day! I came home feeling like an expert AND an idiot. (Well, according to @ignifluous , we are all idiots in some ways.)

Let me rephrase, I came home feeling 80% stupid and 20% smarter. I’m not a developer/musician/designer/entrepreneur/creative leader/journalist, what am I doing here?!? That’s the mindset I had at the start of Gather, and that was the 40% of the stupidity I came home with. It didn’t matter what I do or think I’m going to do. The important mindset I should have stuck to was – here to learn new things and be inspired. That’s where the 20% comes in. I cleverly switched mindsets right after lunch. Tsk. 😛 Anyway, the 80% of stupidity is the most important part of the whole pie chart thing, believe it or not. After listening to all these wonderful inspiring speakers, they’ve reset my life and cleared out all the junk from my brain. What I’ve got now is a clean brain where I can put proper thoughts, dreams and goals in life that I really want to achieve with a bonus of being able to relearn things I enjoy doing! Like photographing people. I mean, stalking.

I helped out to volunteer, so my job was to register Gatherers. I mispelt majority of the Gatherers… and only got the hang of it after 200/300+ people checked in.

Ukulele singalong with @rachelrayner and@whereishayden!

Someone should give him the Best Costume Award.

I went to a session where they were talking about the braaaaaaaaaaaain sensor. Zombies would be super interested in purchasing one of these. They’ll be able to separate what types of brains they want to eat. The attentive brain, calm brain, hyped up brain.. You know? Just a variety of brains for zombies.

“I’m a fraud and everyone else is fooled. It’s only a matter of time before they realise.”

One of the most emotional talks I attended was the session about The Imposter Syndrome and Workplace Anxiety. We talked about how to deal with disclosing anxiety and depression issues with co-workers and employers.

‘If you tried to make changes at the workplace and nothing works out, you shouldn’t be working there.’

I totally understood how being so anxious feels like. But I’m pretty sure there were a lot of people feeling like this ^

1 fraction of the intensity contained in the ‘Anxiety Room’.

 

Stache man’s speech left me (AND ROCHELLE) speechless and completely inspired.

It’s so cool seeing so many people started to knit non-stop after the knitting session they attended.

BEHOLD! The finale of Gather – Tesla Coil Orchestra! Well, it’s a keyboard-controlled tesla coil. It’s friggin’ awesome.

 

I helped out to punch the holes for the bag and a bunch of other stuff. Each bag has my DNA and effort, guys!!

Awesome stuff ey? My sister’s so talented.

 

 

This is super awesome.

Looks neat, doesn’t it?

It’s not a very elaborative post on Gather. To be really honest, there’s just too much to write about Gather! You just have to experience it for yourself and be part of the Gather people. Off to bed now because WORLD CUP TOMORROW MORNING AT 7AM.

So excited to celebrate my birthday week with my friends who are studying in Aussie! HERE! 😀 (I’m always a lamp post in Auckland. First my sister and her husband, now my two friends… WHY ME?)

Paintball at a Abandoned Asylum

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Author, Event

Last Sunday, I tried paintball. I made the hastiest decision when I bought the ticket on TreatMe for $18. I wanted to try new things, and when Ben suggested a group of peeps do paintball together, WHY THE HELL NOT?

It took us about 40 minutes to get to the Asylum Paintball, Kingseat Road.

 Look at those babies. Sweet paintball guns.

 

Some of them chose to pay $5 for overalls that were extremely huge for some of them. Lololol, they were floating around in them. Girls on the other hand, get free chest plates! Well.. Vests. I look bad ass, ey?

The Blue Team! The ones who didn’t pay for overalls, just because.

It was good fun for 3 hours. We played different modes and just went all out.

Now let’s look at the damage I’ve done to myself.

I swear, the worst place to get shot at is in between your fingers. ESPECIALLY your main hand holding the bloody heavy gun. Jesus, it stings!

 

These were the worst because I got shot within about.. 5 meters? :C
My left leg is partially weak now.

Although I had hell a lot of fun.. I’m not sure if I want to go back and play paintball again. I treasure my pretty skin and rather not have them damaged anymore. LOL.

The asylum is so cool though. Playing in a mental ward is just.. Mental. Worst is when you’re running indoors and everything is almost pitch black. Then BAM! Someone shoots you down. Maan. Best way to have the first paintball experience for me. (:
