My 7 Super Shots
Thanks to my travel buddy Ramble and Wander ‘I am now taking part in Hostelbookers 7 Super Shots.’ This wonderful assignment made me have 48 hours of deep thought and major sifting through thousands of photos in my library. The idea of this game is to select 7 photos that best fit the mentioned categories, write a description for each photos, post in under one blogpost and then tag 5 more bloggers to this assignment. You could also tweet the blogpost by using the hashtag #7SuperShots. So here we go, my 7 Super Shots are…
#1 Takes my breath away
Krabi, Thailand (2011) – I am born a Cancerian therefore the beach is always the closest to my heart. Us crabs do love the water especially one that is clear and has a slight tinge of green in it. I feel like swimming now. Get me to the beach please!
#2 Makes me laugh or smile
Nami Island, Korea (2012) – We were zooming around the island on the electric bike when we saw this particular statue of a mother breastfeeding her two children. I didn’t know whether to smile of laugh but I had this sheepish grin on my face as I stood there staring at it. Motherhood is a wonderful thing.
Kuala Selangor, Malaysia (2011) – I had joined the MySelangorStory 2011 contest and we were brought to this amazing place called The Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort & Spa in Selangor. We were lucky to have stayed in this place and I simply loved the view from our floating chalet in the morning. It felt like in a dream only it was real. (Does this makes sense?)
#4 Makes me think
Penang Island, Malaysia (2011) – I discovered this graffiti wall when we were walking to the Khoo Kongsi Hall in Penang. For such an old looking building, someone decided to add a bit more vintage appeal to it by spraying this old man on the wall. I wonder who he was.
#5 Makes my mouth water
Penang Island, Malaysia (2011) – You love this photo too right? This Air Batu Campur or ABC tasted really good on a hot & warm day. Made of shaved ice, corns, beans, syrup, ice cream and even durian, it is simply a must try whenever you visit Malaysia.
#6 Tells a story
Langkawi Island, Malaysia (2010) – We took a drive down to Kuah Town and discovered this abandoned house all covered in moss, surrounded by trees but still visible enough from the road. We stopped to take a photo. I wonder what happened here as the building looked like it was part of history that didn’t manage to get its’ story out.
#7 A photo that I am most proud of (aka my worthy of National Geographic shot)
Kuala Kubu Baru, Malaysia (2011) – It was noon with the sun right above our heads. We had just finished the white water rafting activities and was walking towards the lunch hall when this view captured my eye. When I posted this up on Facebook, people thought that this photo was taken in Europe and was surprised when I told them where I took it.
Phew. The assignment is finally over thank goodness. Getting the photos to match the theme was not an easy task especially when you love all the shortlisted ones! Do you think my photos fit the themes accordingly? Share with me your thoughts por favor!
