Botanical Garden Series pt. 2 - White Flowers

What is Botanical Garden if there is no flowers? Hence today we post some photos of a type of flower found in the garden.

As we stroll along the path into the well maintained garden, we saw these little white flowers dotting among the greens...really eye catching. We couldn't resist to take a few lovely photos of them...

Botanical Garden Series pt 1- Mini Waterfall

Yesterday, after completing all the chores at home, we decided to go somewhere to take nice photos :P Initally we planned to go Batu Ferringhi or Butterfly Farm but it was already 4pm and the weather looks like going to rain anytime soon. Luckily it didn't rain but we detoured to Botanical Garden instead.
It was such a nice weather (no bright and harsh sunlight) and we managed to capture some photos to share over here :)

There is a mini waterfall in Botanical Garden and we found a nice and cozy spot to capture this photo. Noticed the unsightly branches that stuck in the middle? Well, we thought of removing it permanently from this beautiful sight but it was quite steep and we wouldn't want to destroy any public property, right? :P

Photo of the Day - Little Kitten

Found this little kitten near Sungai Batu seaside. It didn't move an inch when I held my camera inches away from its face. The kitten probably too scared to move or confused with the reflection on my camera's lens filter.

LX3 goes to Penang Hill

Last Sunday, we decided to bring our new Panasonic Lumix LX3 to greater heights :P....technically speaking 735 metres above sea level, to our beloved Penang Hill. So our gutsy little gadget was tucked away securely in my backpack... until we met a bunch of tourists with military grade gadget ranging from Canon 40D to Nikon D90. Those big brothers make our puny little camera look like a Chihuahua against a Rottweiler!

However, being a Chihuahua, it couldn't contain its excitement and stay in the backpack for long. When we reaches the hill top, it sprung out from its containment and started shooting photos.

Photo of the Day - Rocky

LX3, f2.8,ISO 80, 1/160

Captured this image during the day when Rocky was looking a bit down and longing to be released. It's a bit hard to take a photo of him keeping still. Rocky usually excited to see me and hoping that I'd bring some yummy stuff. Previously I brought some steamed cake and Rocky finish them off in a flash! :P
