My Flickr Badge!
Originally uploaded by Lye Hock.

I created a free account in Flickr some years back when it just started and since then it has been bought over by Yahoo! A free account has its limitations on the upload limit and number of photos available online. As my photo collection began to grow and I realised a Pro account was the way to go. At USD24.95 a year, I think that's reasonable for a 20G upload limit per month and unlimited number of photos online. Also recently the laptop's hard drive crashed and quite some photos went off in digital oblivion. At least now my favourite photos are somewhere in cyberspace and retrievable anytime...I hope!

Kota Kinabalu

Cock & Bull
Originally uploaded by Lye Hock.

Last weekend work brought me to the Land Below the Wind specifically in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. Had the opportuinity to down a few in the waterfront area. It was a great place with a stretch of pubs & restaurants overlooking the sea. Dubbed the Bangsar of Kota Kinabalu, the night scene there has been upped a few notches. Looks like a place to come back again in the near future....

Grand birthday banquet

Banquet setting
Originally uploaded by Lye Hock.

Celebrated our company's chairman birthday banquet at the Sunway Convention Centre. A very grand affair, all the gentlemen were tuxed up in penguin suits and the ladies were dressed to kill.... Complete with malaysian supermodels gracing the occasion, the event was further jazzed up with local celebrity singers including Ning Baizura. More pictures in my Flickr gallery.
