Nilaicitra means ‘value of image’.

It exhibited the final projects of UNISEL Art And Design’s students.

The program was officiated by Datin Paduka Shuhaimi Baba of Pesona Pictures Sdn. Bhd.

Uncle Adnan Othman also joined us to the program.

We visited the exhibition halls and saw lots of beautiful photographs, digitally drawn pictures and other beautiful stuff.

We visited Abang Ibrahim’s booth and saw the photos that he took at our house

It was very nice to meet Uncle Prof. Dato’ Raja Zahabuddin, Atuk Prof. Hashim and Uncle Ibrahim Bujal again.

The food that they served was very delicious.

I really enjoyed the my time over there.

The Adventures of Sir Hanianon (Episode 1)

Once upon a time, in the 1490s there was a man named Hanianon.

He was a knight and lived in Calovinia.

Hanianon

He liked adventures.

The Jupron was the enemy of Calovinia.

King Antire the 20th of Jupron ordered his knights to destroy the castle of Calovinia.

And so King Sakiorone of Calovinia ordered some of his armies to defend the castle with their best skills while the others were sent to attack the Jupron’s castle.

Sir Hanianon led 20 heavy cannon, 500 cavalry archers and 49 other skirmishers to attack Jupron.

So, off they went to the castle of Jupron to attack their enemy.

This is the bird’s eye view of the battle at the Jupron’s castle. The grey rectangles on the left are the castle and other buildings around it and the brown square is their outpost. The grey dots are their infantry while the purple lines are their cavalry. Some of the Jupron’s infantry are crossing their drawbridge to attack their enemy. On the right, the grey line is the Calovinian infantry, the blue lines are their cavalry while the brown lines are their artillery.

But they were defeated and they had to retreat.

They were left with only 5 skirmishers, 1 heavy cannon and 30 cavalry archers.

As soon as they reached Calovinia, they fought to defend their castle together with the other troop.

The battle was over and the Calovinian managed to defeat their enemy. 

Jupron went to Zolaphat to ask for help.

Meanwhile, Sir Hanianon went to Torkiy for help.

Torkiy send the powerful Janissary while and Zolaphat send Fusiliers.

The Calovinian defeated the Jupron’s armies and destroyed their castle but the King Antire the 20th of Jupron managed to run away to Cinra.

Pos Malaysia’s Underwater Life

The beautiful Underwater Life special issue stamp series.

I went to the General Post Office at Dayabumi Complex, Kuala Lumpur that morning to buy the stamps and the miniature sheets.  

The first day cover with the miniature sheet.

The stamps are so beautiful.

The stamp artist used water colour to paint the pictures.

And I also got the artist’s signature 🙂

Floods have hit New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria in Australia.

Wagga Wagga in New South Wales is badly hit by the disaster.

About 9,000 people have been ordered to evacuate the city of Wagga Wagga and its surrounds where the Murrumbidgee is predicted to peak at 10.9 metres (36 feet), right on the levee’s limit, at 6:00 pm (0800 GMT).

Floodwaters are expected to breach the levee this evening, Tuesday March 6, 2012.

Argentinian Ice Wall Collapses – REUTERS Photos

Tourists look at the Perito Moreno glacier after the rupture of a massive ice wall near the city of El Calafate in the Patagonian province of Santa Cruz, southern Argentina, March 4, 2012. The glacier, a massive tongue of ice in the Santa Cruz province that covers 250 square kilometres (97 square miles), advances yearly into a lake, known as Lago Argentino. As Perito Moreno moves forward, it cuts off a river feeding the lake. Water builds up pressure and slowly undermines the ice, forming a tunnel until ice comes tumbling down. The phenomenon repeats itself at irregular intervals, with the last major ice falls occurring in 2008. REUTERS/Andres Arce

How I wish I can be there 🙂
