As announced, Monsopiad Cultural Village is now having their Tattoo and Art Exhibition along the month of October and me once as a fine art students before + tribal pattern was one of my favorite, I’ve managed to spend some time to visit the place and took some pics for you guys.

I can summarize on the first stage of a tattoo process, it can be said as an ‘introduction’ between you and the needle tattooer.

You’re free to choose a tattoo design from a catalog provided or you can just bring your own tattoo design.

The tools..

What’s in the bag..

and.. the second stage.. there’s none actually, you get the tattoo experience once you hear a sound of bbzzzttttttttt………

Experience that you can only imagine..

A tattooer has to be a quiet artistic person

In order to get one nice tattoo for their customer.

sorry.. have some commercial break just for a blink

A normal size of single colored tattoo normally will takes about 45 minutes to finish the whole process.

After all the pain!! after all the heat!! and all the bzzzttttt!!!! in the end

All are worth it!!

Another bangas post from me.. (well.. I’m not a reporter therefore it makes really a good excuse lah!)

I went to see the KL Tower International Jump 2008 last month at Menara Tun Mustapha with Radzie and few of my comrades. The event was held here for the 2nd year in a row with a tagline ‘Ultimate Test of Courage’ and it was really a good experience photographing.

Here I start with the photos taken from the ground..

The jumper started his jump.

The first small parachute starting to pop up

and the main parachute starts to opened.

and touch down.. actually, he landed far away from the drop zone..

here are another shots

Parachute normally comes with a material call woven nylon fabric.

and all jumpers are required to pack their own parachute bag, this to avoid any case involving of sabotage.

.. and now comes the thrill moment, shots taken from the top of Menara Tun Mustapha building..

treng! ten! ten!

I love high places..

This how it looks from the top. 1Borneo and UMS far ahead.

I don’t know his real name but everyone call him Chris, his the one who’s in charge of monitoring all the jumpers + as well as everyone up there.

This where we all began

it’s time for Radzie to get a spot..

Chris really a nice guy, n easy going of person to talk with. He gave us lots of tips for shooting in higher ground.

Radzie taking his moment photographing.. till

… someone is calling.. LOL!

and now it’s my turn to get my spot and I sat next to Radzie..

This how I attached with a rope tied around my waist + Radzie.

This how it really looks like from the top level of Tun Mustapha Tower.

The jumper began to start the jump.

and way he go down..

The jump was tremendously fast, I had to set the camera into ‘continuous shooting’ mode

then only I can get this shot..

for you guys to see.. koff! koff!

well.. thanks to Ali G for bringging us to the top.. (yup! it was him the one with blue shirt)

Xander a.k.a Asrizal was on the top too..

I really had a great time shooting in higher level.

Hopefully, there will be another jump event next year..

It’s durians season now here + there.. what are you guys waiting for..

Razz Ma Tazz was having their 5th anniversary last Thursday, 10 July 2008 and one of the activities was the Razz Ma Tazz Mini Auto Show (well… that’s what they call it, more like a sound battle to me) and lucky I had chance to make a short visit.

The show was actually schedule to start at 4pm but due to heavy rain, the show just started at around 7.30pm

Kenari with its 2, 4, 6.. waaahh banyaknya speaker.

While this is a Jeep actually.

pukulan ‘Kancil’

My fevret is this one, so neat..

Iswara also tidak mau ketinggalan

The loudest so far that night for Iswara

but my favorite was this one, Perodua MyVi.. the sound was sharp + loud = bikin sakit telinga! Also the composition is neat + tidy x good lighting = smart mata memandang

beside cars, scooters were there too

and some of them really made a great body works

The crowd starting to get crowded when the time was about 9pm

while some are really enjoying himself

Actually, Razz Ma Tazz was having some special ceremony going on later that night to celebrate the 5th anniversary and I love to wait but I got an appointment for meetin at 8pm and that’s why I was late. (sorry guys)
