Old Edwardians' Website

My school's website was launched on 15 March 2006 at the Mandarin Court Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. Quite a good turnout considering it was middle of the week. Met some legendary Tigers many of them whom had left school before I was born! Guest of honour, Tan Sri Ghazali Che Mat, former Chief of Malaysian Armed Forces, was the head boy in 1953. Support for the function appears tremendous as even the Taiping chapter had some representatives present. Despite the launch, there are some uncompleted details, links, language etc that need to be ironed out before it is fully operational. Many thanks to the website committee (Keat Swee, Suet Fun & Termizi) who had put in much effort to make the website a reality, expected to be an online aggregator for Tigers roaming all over the world.

Banquet show

Attended a birthday banquet over the weekend & there were some local celebrities present along with a splendid performance by company staff. The Sigma 70-300 was used to capture most of the stage scenes. High ISO1600 produced grainy results. Good and fast lens with at least F/2.8 glass sorely missed!

Model shoot

This held sometime in mid February and was arranged by fellow PMer Johan who organised a quick shoot with a couple of models designed for newbies like us to experience a model shoot. Complete with studio strobes & lights, it was a rewarding experience at a small cost.
