Christmas and Turkey

MERRY Christmas people! It's a day of celebration and the traffic in KL is horrible. I've learned my lesson: NEVER shop for Christmas gift at the very last minute. The Christmas decorations of the malls in the Klang Valley are nice though. I grabbed some chances to visit some of them:
Pavilion KL
MidValley Megamall
Sunway Pyramid

Retouching Old Photos

SOMETIMES when you flipped through old photo albums of your parents or even grandparents you'll see some photos which look like this:
Sepia or black and white
Last night one of my cousin sister sent me a photo of her paternal grandfather, who passed away very early when he was still a young man. Only having this monochrome photo of him, she wants me to add some 'colours' to it. I thought it was quite impossible to do it as we normally photoshop our pictures from colour to black and white (B&W) but not vice versa.

That was, until I found a handy shareware which enable us to do that. This program called Recolored has very simple tools for us to add colours to old B&W photos. Fascinating!
And very easy to use
After a some trial and saving, this is the results I've got:
The glasses were later added in Photoshop
Lately I've been hearing a lot of death news. It all started with Alviss Kong, a heartbreak guy who committed suicide after his girlfriend left him. Followerd by another girl who jumped from KL Pavilion. Not long later, Sheng Yuan uncle also passed away after a road accident, which shocked all of us uni mates. And last night I heard from dad that one of our relative is not have much time left as well. *update: this morning the ambulance came and sent her to the hospital. Well, she's 98 now. This is life.

Mini Legoland in Bangsar

CHRISTMAS is around the corner. Just like every year the malls are up with their joyful Christmas decorations and lighting. And this time round Bangsar Village 2 come out with a Lego Christmas deco.
It has a 7m high Lego X'mas tree. The tallest in Asia.
Of course, there are displays of my favourite toy at all time. LEGO!
Lego chess
The train set which I so wished to own last time.

KL Motor Show 2010

THE Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS) has finally come to an end after 10 days of exhibition at the Putra World Trade Center. It's been a long time I never been to PWTC, since the last PC Fair held here.

On last Tuesday I went to the motor show with Karen and David who was still in KL. It was a public holiday therefore we had to pay for the usual adult ticket (RM20) instead of the student price (RM5). But we got ourselves a chance of lucky draw contest.

Previously I've been to the motor show in Singapore but not the one in KL. So let the photos speak for themselves:
The grand prize of the lucky draw contest - Toyota Prius
Inside Hall 1, we got to see the much anticipated Proton Inspira or better yet known as Malaysian version of Mitsubishi Lancer.
The Lotus Espirit, looking smart.
