The Greatest Gift

When I was younger, it was always a mystery to me how two hearts come together, fall in love and shares their love for the rest of their lives. Time goes by and I have discovered and learned the language of love. It’s not just about being in love with the people who makes you happy and loves you back in return. It comes to the extent of loving people who you think are unlovable. Sounds insane right?

1st Corinthian 13:4-7 says; Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

This verse has been engraved in mind and I would say engraved in my heart as well but got to take a rough road to finally get in to it. Dwelling in perfect and true love is really tough without the One who gives it. I humble myself that without Him I am nothing and yes, with Him I can do all things.

Giving up life for a friend is indeed a greatest love, and that’s what Jesus did 2000 years ago. Its indeed the greatest gift a man can ever have. Abide in faith, and learn to love other people with the love of God in our hearts.

…, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1st Corinthian 13:13

Kuala Lumpur City Center

Right after the KL Pinoy anniversary at Bangkok Connection, along Jalan Ampang, the hubby and I took a short walk at KLCC to capture its skyline. For the second time around, I’m shooting a night shot of the Petronas Twin Tower. It was April last year when I had my first shot of the twin tower while on a transit visit here in KL.
We took a cold zip at the KLCC food court to capture the view from a higher point and a wider angle but it did not work well. I was shooting right in front a clear glass curtain wall and the presence of artificial lighting inside the mall create a distracting reflection on the image. I just did a slight PP on the image to eliminate the said reflection.
With in the KLCC vicinity is Suria KLCC a shopping mall at the foot of the twin tower. The Petronas Twin Towers is now the 7th Tallest Sky Scrapper. Way back my college days it was the tallest, at present it’s the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, the Aquaria KLCC, the KLCC Park and numbers of hotel and office buildings. More about KLCC here.
Shooting on a shutter priority at 1/8 of a second, minus the must have tripod on a night photography; here are some of the shots.

Shades of Gray

Inspired by some stunning black & white shots at DPS, i thought i would have to give myself a try too.
I was pretty excited to try it myself so i fixed my usual DIY studio with only the natural available light inside our room as a main and only lighting. With my D40 kit, here are some incamera black & white shots of stuff i grabbed from our kitchen and bedroom.

Cooking delight

Last Sunday night, the hubby and I had a cooking bonding. As a rookie in the marriage realm, we’ve been on a quest of discovering and experimenting new menu on the list. Last night, we decided to cook some food we usually eat at restaurant. Were both not good in cooking since it was not really an event for us while we were single, but hey, we manage to eat what was done by ourselves. His menu was a copycat yellow mee “Filipino style” that we normally eat during snack at a nearby restaurant at the office. While I managed to cook some sort of a copycat menu too; a seafood – vegetable mix, I don’t know how to call it; I just remember eating it somewhere. Though it was not a classy and lavish menu, we’d really enjoy the food, and most especially the bonding time together. I hope we could find time to do this once again.

My Sentiment

No it’s not what you think…it’s the bottle of sentiment by escada. Taking advantage of the natural light passing thru our bedroom window, I put up a DIY mini studio to serve me this still shot. With a chair parallel to the window and a black cloth as a back ground plus an A4 size paper as reflector, I fired these shots. I’ve been chasing light and still learning to utilize natural lighting before heading for strobes.
