Bad, Good and Photoshopped Fireworks Pic

How do you classified if the picture is bad or good. Well, I do believe beauty lies on the beholder eye and I’m grading my own picture not wanting to sound like a professional photographer, ok?!

For example this…

A coconut tree. Good, but not to my standard.

This one?

Bad pic! Too smoky.

This one? Too Smoky also?

Smoky is good lar! This is what we called an art. Don’t you think they looks like an explosion?

We can do this…

RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!!!!!!!!! (Ya la, I know she looks happy)

or… or….

Charlie Angel!

… or how about some…













Happy 50th Independence Day to all 🙂

Malaysia International Fireworks Competition

The photographs that I’m posting is from Italy team who is competing on 25th August. All photographs here is in it’s original form except for the cropping unless specified by me.

First blurry pic…

Of course not so good la. Usually I will test out lighting and functions during the first few shots.

For starter, show you some small-small one first, ok?

Very unique fireworks, right? I vowed not to post something you usually saw during Chinese New Year.

Watch this… before bursting….

After bursting….


The full paranomic…

That’s all for today. Stay tuned as more outrageous fireworks coming soon. Decided to squeeze all 15 pics in one post. Warning: 56k unfriendly ahead!

This is not original…

I merged 2 pictures together. The rest is untouched. I love the star. It is so unique. I wonder if they can made “I LOVE YOU”. That would be so cool!

or… or… “Will You Marry ME?” Wah lao! So romantic can die lidat.

Again, 3D Star. Nice eh?

That’s all from the Italy team. Please note that the fireworks start at 10.00pm on scheduled night and last for about 20 minutes. Go early to get a good spot by the curb side if you do not want to pay the entrance fee. And I mean REAL early like 7 or 8pm. However, you can picnic there while waiting for dawn.

Japan team is competing tomorrow on Merdeka eve. I was told that the fireworks will start at 12am. Subsequent schedules are as follow:

31st August – Global Team
1st September – Global Team
2nd September (Grand Finale) – Global/Pyrofest Canada

I would say, this is Welcome to Malaysia in conjunction with Visit Malaysia Year 2007. Everyone did a good show by putting up such a beautiful and magnificent fireworks.

The Priceless moment!!!!!

My mom asked me, “So, what is the prize for the winner?”

“Good question Ma, I would like to know too”.

Bitter Gourd Omelette

I love to admire the bitter gourd in my garden day and night. I find them quite therapeutic. Soon before I knew it, the gourd turn from green to yellowish. I heaved with a big sigh. It has not even grown to adult size yet! Looks like my finger is not so green after all. *sigh….

“The size is as big as Baby’s face”. That is what Eldest Princess said. I think that is a compliment in disgust. Chis!

Ya I know. It is so small it can even fit into her pocket. Looks like my dream of cooking some chicken or soup dishes is dashed.

I show off them to my babysitter and she suggested bitter gourd omelette. You know why? Cos the bitter gourd has turn yellowish which also means it is wayyyyyyyyyyyy matured and the gourd would be too soft and they will mashed up if I were to stew them.

Totally love the colourful omelette.

Photo Hunter: Happy

This is my 3rd child whom I addressed as Baby Princess in my blog.  Infact, the meaning of her chinese name is “Happy”.  She in indeed a happy child and never failed to make us laugh with her antics tho sometimes we feel like smacking her butt.

Photo Contest Result is out!

If you are a regular reader of jessielingdotcom, I think by now you will be so bored listening to my bragging of the photo contest. But I promised you, this will be my last entry on the photo contest. But the best is yet to come! *insert evil laugh* I’ll tell you why after this.

This is what I’ve submitted:

This is one of my best and favourite photo from my trip to Disneyland, Los Angeles. Actually, I was thinking of blowing up this pic and hang it on my wall.

A trip to Seoul, Korea somewhere in 2003.

Another pic took from my Los Angeles trip.

Palace of the Elephants, Phuket.

These are just a few lot that I’ve submitted. So, which one make it to the finals? The 3rd and 4th pic. And which one won the grand prize?

None 🙁

I was about to bang my head on the wall. So I wrote to the organizer and threaten to sue him for loss of sleep, stress, fell sick because of stress, no appetite to eat, anxiety, nervous breakdown, etc….

No la, just pulling your leg.

The photo contest result is out last night. So, who and which pic is the winner leh?

errr… but I still like the first pic wor.

Nevertheless, now I have to think of a holiday destination. That is not tough as I’ve always wanted to go Siem Reap, Hanoi or Thailand. My question now is…. who is going with me?

So, any takers? Pay your own Air Asia ticket and we go on a holiday together. Be it a blogger’s holiday ke or ladies holiday ke, I don’t care la. Janji ada teman, ok? Don’t worry. I don’t snore and I don’t fart in bed 😉

Looks like I’m going to pollute jessielingdotcom with holiday pic again. *ngek, ngek, ngek

No need to get jealous la.  I’m sure AsiaYak will organize  more contest in near future. Just make sure you register as a member in their forum and watch out for their contest.  Okie dokie?

Now, where is my calendar…..

Who’s fault? Ratatouille!

I know you watch the movie already but I have not and don’t intend to. So please, don’t have to tell me how nice and how hillarious the movie is cos I already KNEW! However, the making of Ratatouille screening on Astro can really make my saliver dripping. Not the mouse. I mean the food! It just happened over one of the weekends. Eldest Princess and me was oozing at the Italian food shown in Ratatouille. We look at each other and I said, “Girl, I feel like having spaghetti.” So, off I went to the kitchen. Peel, peel, peel. Chop, chop, chop. dish and dash… tadah…

To add on some Asian taste bud, I diced finely some hard boiled salted egg. Sprinkle on top and there we go, bon appetit!

Japanese Tofu

How to deep fry Japanese Tofu (aka egg tofu) yet maintaining the inner part smooth and not holey?

Very easy. Make sure your oil is really very hot before putting in the tofu.  That way, the outer layer will brown very fast.

Baby Princess turned Two few months ago.

Was it a “Yay, I’m Two!” or “Peace!”? You be the judge 😉

Have you Done your August Chores?

I admit that I’m not a patriotic type of person but I have nothing against my country. I love my country as how it is. I don’t care who wins during elections as long as we live in peace and no war please!

If you want to voice out your opinion, choose a right channel. We live in a multi racial country. We have Chinese, Malay, Indian dan lain-lain (etc), not forgetting other races from Sabah & Sarawak like Kadazan, etc, etc…

Never, never criticize other religions and make fun of your own national anthem regardless where it’s origin came from. It is our national anthem after all.

So, have you done your August chores?  What August chores?  Flying our national flag, Dude!
Selamat Menyambut Hari Kemerdekaan ke 50. Saya Anti Rasuah Anak Malaysia. (Happy 50th National Day)

p/s: Read the sarcasms on my lips when I say the word “chores!”
