Last year’s champion, the Pertubuhan Peladang Kawasan Tuaran again participate in the race to defend their title.

Comparing to last year’s race, I’ve witness none (or maybe less) of the dragon boats had flip upside down.

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.
