BFF Anniversary - 23/03/08

Yesterday, Brunei Forever Forum celebrated it's first anniversary at Blue Eden Restaurant in Kiulap. BFF is an informal photography group with a very strong number and are spread out to all 4 districts of Brunei Darussalam. You can see us in little, corporate and even major events, like National Day, His Majesty The Sultan's Birthday and the recently Maulud procession. And you will see us in more events in the coming future as the number is getting stronger.

Having started with only a few members, it started growing until now. I myself joined in last year and I'm proud to be part of it. As for today, there are 184 members registered under the forum consisting of photobloggers, photographers from professional to hobbyist or just shooting for fun. The forum is open to everyone, from otais to juniors, to join us, "friendship" is a must and the only membership fee.

The forum was where we post our photos and let it be commented or criticized. It's where we learn from each other... with the occasional "Thread Derailment". LOL ;p and I try not to miss anything in the forum. Because it's also where we plan our next outings and also confirming the weekly JC or BE sessions.

Check out the article in Brunei Times yesterday :)

AM Gunners Charity Football Match - 22/03/08

It was wet as it rained last Saturday for the Charity Match between AM Gunners and Sports School. But the show must go on. And it was a very tight match, both teams couldn't score in the first half. Both teams started scoring on the 2nd half. And the first score for AM Gunners was scored by HRH Prince Abdul Mateen himself.

ITF Junior Championship - 22/03/08

More floaters! Went to the Tennis Complex for the ITF Junior Championship. Haven't played tennis for a while, and these kids are really good. I like taking shots while they're serving. Especially if the server is in the air. It reminds me of my matches. My cousins hated my serves, I just love giving aces. My idols before (and actually still) were Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi. Oh well, will come back to court one of these days.

I know... all ladies... here's one guy. heheh... ;p His serves were powerful. But his second serves are slooow....

Didn't stay long, it was freaking hot. And I didn't use sun block. Don't want to be burned again. Maybe tomorrow, if I have the time. Now I need to recharge... not the camera battery but me. I have a match to cover tonight. ;)

HM @ Taman SOAS - 20/03/08

Photos of our beloved monarch, His Majesty The Sultan and Yang DiPertuan Negara Brunei Darussalam and the Royal entourage heading the Maulud procession yesterday morning in conjunction of anniversary birthday of Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. (Praise be upon him).

Was trying out black & white and loved the effects that I decided to post a whole set of black & whites. Can't wait for His Majesty's birthday celebration this coming July.
