Malaysia Airlines promotion has arrive again, this time its for China & Domestic Weekend Deals.. Fly to Kunming from RM564

Bah apa kamurang tunggu lagi nih..

Knock! knock!..

Uhuk! uhuk! kroff! kroff!!.. duii berhabuk suda this blog sampai terbatuk2 sia..

Berhabuk ndak berupdate berbulan-bulan sudah, dia punya habuk and dust sampai jatuh suda sia punya ranking di Alexa nih, since my last Alexa update on Alexa Page Rank almost 2 years ago (deh gila punya lama) baru #1,482,034, my best so far was on Sept 2007 ranked at #327,907.. demm! and now Made In Sabah rank at #3,288,983.. for those fresh bloggers, they should learn a bit about this Alexa ranking thingy, speaking by experience, it can actually motivates you from keep writing and update your blog.

Well.. OK enough with the Alexa thingy.. today I’m writing not just about my kejatuhan ranking Alexa yang terburuk, I’m now ready to write again, walaupun this blog berhabuk sana sini, but still people are coming in and out, walaupun tidak banyak tapi thanks to all lah yang coming, I noticed also there are few silent readers yang menyekodeng2 jugak kadang2.. also thanks to them for the skodengan. There are also readers yg setia membaca and giving out their positive input and comments.. Thank you lah to all!

I’m writing today also mo ucapkan Happy New Year and Selamat Tahun Baru 2011 to all and I would love to explainlah cikit after being “MNIA” Missing NOT In Action for many months. Firstly you’ll notice on this blog is the web layout of Made in Sabah has been changed into a new theme named Greyzed by The Forge Web Creations (If you’re loking for new theme to fill your new year with new look, go ahead to The Forge Web Creations) I kinda like the feel of grungy theme la this time.. saja bertukar theme yang baru since theme yang lama suda bangas(basi) berlalat so its some sort of nafas baru (la kunun kasi sedap hati)..

Maybe not many of you been wondering where on earth I go all this while, well.. I’ve been snapping a lot of places around Sabah during the year 2010 and you will see some of ‘Must Read’ post coming in the new year 201 after the jump.. but before that, let me do some explanation of my missing NOT in action..

– I’ve been super busy with my hardcore hobby and now become a profession into serious business..
– and since it got serious into this so call ‘profession’, I got tons of photos on my hard drive, external hd, thumb drive, dvd and almost everywhere..
– and since I got tons of photos everywhere to look at and therefore at the same time I have no ‘proper’ time to update this blog.. (Nope.. this is not alasan bah!)
– I got new member in the family.. she’s cute, she’s super healthy, she’s getting bigger, she’s a cute little monster.. I’m a lucky dad!!
– Speaking of lucky, I got a new job in line.. baby sitter, since I got most of my time working freelance at home.
– So being half baby sit half freelance job are being 4wd-challenging as its actually 80% baby sit and 20% wifey and -50% work, -50% hobby.. so you tell me when the hell do I get to update the blog?
– Actually I did some update on my other blog in case you guys didn’t know.. tapi post yang ringan2 jela..
– And because of all these I was so lazy to update bah (OK this can be a perfect reason)
– Lastly, just recently not long time ago, a new chapter came in to my life, I’ve just been attach to a profession of being working abroad.. good offer + good future, so I take the shot.. and now I’m settled down and ready to blog again..

So hopefully you guys get the idea lah kan my “missing NOT in action”

Here are some of ‘Must Read’ post coming soon that I’m going to publish for you guys.. all fresh, all new and pack with tons of jaw breaking photos..

It’s been almost two months (if I’m not mistaken la) since the Alexa pagerank have been updating their new rank for better web site traffic. And since then MadeInSabah’s blog got his new rank which is a bit far from the previous rank at 483,307 last March, until now reach at 1,482,034.

What I would like to share with you guys which I found out through my BlogStats search engine is something funny but interesting..

1 – someone trying a search term for malaysia airline by typing a complete address “www.malaysiaairline/low fare sabah” on the search box instead on the address box.. Ha! Ha!

2 – and last one some geeks is trying a search terms for “Hot Babes” then connected to this blog. Astagaaa!!! durang ingat ini ‘Tabu’ punya blog ka?? Buduhh..

This Sunday on 18th May 2008 will be the International Museum Day which has been celebrated all over the world since 1977. In conjunction to the memorable day, the Sabah State Museum of Kota Kinabalu will be opening to the public for FREE of one day from 9am to 5pm. There will be a free demo for visitors who would love to try some of the interesting Sabah instruments during that particular day. Interested? for more info call the Department of Sabah Museum at this number..

Tel : (60) 088-253199 / 225033

and those Sabahan that have not been visiting to the Sabah musuem for many years or not even been here at all.. it’s the time!

I attended a wedding dinner invitation last weekend at Hyatt Regency Kota Kinabalu. It’s a wedding of my friend Martin (actually he was one of my client) and her sweet wife Edna. It was a lovely dinner function with lots of Sabahan smiley faces.

Just to share some of the shots I took from that night.

During the toasting

Just playing with a monochrome mode of shots. Happy faces..

Monochrome mode of shot really can brings out the classic feeling.

Sweet smile from Jovita Hee (left) and her friend (sorry didn’t get your name), they’re sitting the same table as mine.

Errr… I didn’t actually know this babe girl, it was her own request to snap her photo that nite. She say to me ” Hey! LengChai, kau ambik sia punya gambar bah sinih!”… btw I say tengkiu la bebeh!!

Some candid shot with the bride.

Just testing the 55-250 mm zoom lense.

I love it when people smiling the time you’re on a perfect time aiming from your camera lenses.

Playing with the shutter speed, this was during the Sumazau dance.

The wedding cake..

Everybody wants to take their photos with the bride.. err including me, koff!! koff!! of course with the groom la ba.

While the wedding couple really enjoyed their moment.. I really had a great time shooting with my new weapon camera..

big thanks to Martin & Edna for the invitation.. and may god bless their marriage with long lasting happily ever after.
