One year ago today I started a project: take at least one photo each day and post it online. Today, I do not post the 365th photo in the project, instead I compiled a collage above of the set.
Although this has been an amazing experience, I’m not going to continue with it very soon. Setting aside a few moments each day to look around and find something worthy of a photo adds a very interesting and nice component to everyday life. I’ve started noticing things I never saw before. Looking back at the full set is also a great reminder of all that I’ve been up to over the last 12 months.
Why I stop at the end of October, instead of 31st December – some of you might ask. The reason is simple, because I started the project early November last year. As long as it is a 365-day project, it should meet the criteria.
And now, an exhaustive list of memorable events (and photos)….
Brunei (twice), Miri city, Niah Caves, Labuan Island, bought two auction houses, Putrajaya, my mother passed away, bought a new CRV, Broga Hills, Genting Highlands, Singapore, Melbourne etc.
Tonight, I will be flying back to Melbourne. Again.
Last but not least, I would like to thank you my readers for visiting my album. Those with blogs, you know where to find me. And those whom blog I don’t know whether exist or not, or like to be ‘silent readers’, I am regret to inform you that this is THE END.
Day 364 of 365. Tomorrow is the last day. *Smile.
While skipping my lunch last Thursday, I went to KLCC Park. Alone with my buddy dslr camera.
Luckily, I got few shots left available on my memory card of 2GB. Cool.
Day 363 of 365.
It’s been a week since I left Melbourne.
Next time maybe I try cruising the Yarra River. Cool.
Day 362 of 365.
Actually, I am searching for a one particular toy, look-alike zombies for my youngest boy.
From Minotaur toy shop in Melbourne to Kinokuniya Bookstore in KLCC. Still not available.
Day 361 of 365.
A souvenir (from French, for memory), memento or keepsake is an object a traveler brings home for the memories associated with it. (wikipedia)
Please ignore the nyonya (on suar kontot) on your back.
Location: Tesco Seri Alam, last Sunday.
Day 360 of 365.
I was back to the office yesterday.
Although I can pay my credit card loans online now, but I rather walk to the bank counters myself. Firstly because it’s good to exercise my legs from time to time. Secondly, it will give me more confident that the money will go directly into the account. Cool.
Day 359 of 365.
Sometimes, even if you arrived early in the morning, your favorite breakfast set is not always available.
But I got it yesterday morning. Cool.
Day 358 of 365.
It’s being reported that we have not having rains for the last couple of weeks.
Ironically, it was raining the whole day today. Cool.
Postnotes: If you are following my album for quite sometimes, you might already know where I am now. In addition, I put some notes on the picture itself – you just have to slightly giggle your mouse on top of it.
Day 357 of 365.
By the time you read this, I might be already at home. Here is the dinner I had on my previous flight to Melbourne. Cool.
Day 356 of 365.
Today I am going back to Masai. It’s been a month, or exactly thirty one days, in Melbourne.
It’s a job related visit. I will come here again. Maybe not. No one knows, only Allah knows. InsyaAllah.
Thank you all for always keeping me ‘alive’ here alone in Down Under. Cool.
Day 355 of 365. Ten more days to complete this project.
I visited the Fawkner Mosque (above) last Monday night after work. Alone by myself.
Able to perform maghrib prayer in the real mosque (in Melbourne) was a real satisfaction, after a long journey of travelling by tram and train and walking through streets.
As I expected (from Haseeb’s story), it is really a Pakistani community mosque, that they normally have a tabligh gathering after prayers. I didn’t join them.
The moon was quite bright on top of the mosque but the sky was black and dark. After doing a little bit of post-processing HDR, although I didn’t capture the moon but I managed to get the blue sky. Cool
Day 354 of 365.
At first it was quite a challenge to find this ‘cow’ up on the tree, that is in the docklands area of the city. Cool.
Day 353 of 365.
Inspired by local bloggers, I went to St Kilda pier last Sunday by taking a tram. The journey took me about 22 minutes.
wheather weather (thanks to Teacher Dinas 😉 ) in Melbourne is not so good now. As you can see above from this southern part of the city. But the scenic view is extraordinary. Cool.
Day 352 of 365.
After getting off from the city tour bus last Saturday, I straight went to Tesselaar Tulip Festival in Silvan. It was the last day of the festival this year.
Eventually, I lost my umbrella in the train to Belgrave town.
But the experience to capture thousands of colourful tulips in the festival was priceless. Cool.
It’s been raining for the last couple of days. Hopefully we can get the sun pop out in very soon, like the day I captured the Princes Park lake last Tuesday.
Postdated: Princes is a plural form of prince, as The Princes in the Tower, Edward V of England (4 November 1470 – 1483?) and his brother, Richard of Shrewsbury, 1st Duke of York (17 August 1473 – 1483?), were the only sons of Edward IV of England and Elizabeth Woodville alive at the time of their father’s death. (wikipedia)
Today I got a free city tour because I purchased two full day tours before. Cool.
But it seems like the rain will never stop.
Last Monday evening while looking for bigger memory card for my DSLR in Michaels’ camera shop, I found the Camera Museum located on the first floor of the same shop.
I didn’t buy the memory card though.
On another note, my daughter will be celebrating her 18th birthday today. Happy birthday to aTi. Good luck with your studies, my dear.
While walking towards Fitzroy Street in St Kilda Beach, I saw the above street art:
This mural is in respect of the Boomerang people – traditional owners and caretakers of this land.
Nonetheless, inside the Aquarium I can snap pictures of penguins and other aquatic animals as I like, contrary to those living in Phillip Island. Cool.
Last Saturday I visited the Great Ocean Road to the popular Twelve Apostles, the Gibson Steps, and Port Campbell. It was a day-tour and I enjoyed the scenic landscapes, and beaches very much.
The title is nothing to do with this entry. Pardon me.
This is my 346 entry out of 365 project. 19 more days left in the project to go. Cool.
After three weeks, I have become an expert to find my halal meals (especially dinner) in this big city.
One of my favourites now is the Es Teller 77, an Indonesian restaurant that is located in Swanston Street. Cool.
Last Friday night, I went to the Luna Park in St Kilda.
The park entrance is free but you have to pay if you want to enjoy the rides. Cool.
Last Thursday night I went to Swanston Street to buy some souvenirs. There are so many souvenirs shops indeed.
Today’s itinerary is to explore, experience and embrace the magic of the Great Ocean Road, where the Twelve Apostle is lying.
The above photo is a sky view from inside the Melbourne Zoo (last Sunday). Cool.
Melbourne Zoo is located just behind my office and hotel.
Last Sunday activity was just visiting the zoo in a hot dry wheather for three and half hour. Cool.
