Sabah FA in trouble?

Is the Sabah FA at it again? Time after time again we Sabahan been waiting for a nice run by our football team. And after a few good season(climbing back to the Super League) and a quite decent 1st season on the top flight, now we're on the brink of doom again. 

Starting from an away lost at an empty stadium to neighboring Sarawak, and now a 9-0 trashing of the lions international scraps.. and followed by a 4-0 thumping at home by a minnow club, PKNS, makes us wonder, what are they actually doing up there(Management)?

To be fair, we might be missing few important players namely Rozaimi(international duty, good for him!) and our captain Reithaudeen. But I'm sure whoever is replacing them should atleast keep the scoreline respectable! I mean, Sabah is a football loving state, and talents are everywhere, unless the scouts(if we have any) didnt do their job correctly. I think they(the scouts) failed miserably, coz as we can see, the players are recycled year after year. Same faces again and again, while KL managed to find a pearl while we're digging dirt. If not, Hazwan Bakiri, a Labuan lad, should be playing for us by now! He even scored hattricks few times for the National team!

In the wake of the 9-0 trashing, some claimed foul play, which I hope that's not the case. Lets just hope its a minor hiccups for the players to have a kick in the behind for them to move far forward. I just hope the players can improve themself and show their true potentials. Don't blame the fans. They are there to tell you to improve, or else whoelse is there to do that? And the management team, please do something, and if you're not capable, let someone who is.

Players like Bobby Gonzales, you once show us Sabahan that we have hope, we have talent. Stop doing what you are doing now(playing terribly) and bring back your former self! Score goal!!

I hardly update my blog nowadays, so me blogging this must meant that a situation is going on!

Sabah FA new imports

A familiar grounds for Sabah FA, as the Malaysian Super League now allows foreign imports to participate, maximum two for each team. Sabah didnt take long to get their choice, through the influence of once mighty Rhinos hero, Scott Olle, have now signed two Aussies(One of them is probably is Malaysian). Introducing the new, Brendan Gan and Michael Baird. Seen here, from their first centralized training at Penampang Stadium, together with Scotty himself! The last time Sabah had an Aussie import was Robbie Gaspar which the Rhinos managed to reach the Malaysian Cup Final, but humbly beaten by MPPJ(Arestogui to be exact)

doing some strobist

Well, it is always great to be able to create great photos especially on portraits. But it is undeniably gives a super edge if multiple external flash is being used. Here are some of my strobist(or is that what it is called?) photos..

On a rainy day, it seems the water gives extra special effects on the strobing process
Here are the 2010 Miss Malaysia Earth, miss Appey Rowena.. stunning in her swimwear
Using two external flash, i decided to give more effects using color gel
Like i said, the water always gives nice effects, otherwise very hard to achieve if not using multiple external flash

Would share some more photos, maybe with the strobing info

Kotobian Tadau Kaamatan 2011

Well, it's May again.. and the best season to look at the prettiest Sabahan natives reveal themselves. The Unduk Ngadau! Everyone in their traditional costumes representing their own heritage and district..

Well, Harvest festival is a big occasion in Sabah, and the Unduk NGadau event is only part of it. There also would be statewide singing competition, or Sugandoi, where all the KDM sang their heart out in their respective language to compete with each other. Other cultural show will also be performed by our Sabahan own talented performers, and is a worthy spending of a time if you go to any place celebrating Kaamatan.

And if you want to be part of the fun, I have a friend who rent her handmade original traditional costume. Check out her collections, and give me a buzz if anyone interested! :)

A new Concept of photoshoot

Hey, I've been shying away from posting new entries on my blog. But here I am, with another idea. It's been long since I've done any photoshoots, outdoor especially. So I am thinking of creating new ideas, which I have been planning to do, but cudnt able to do. So I guess if theres any talent interested to participate, do give me a poke..

For some reason, I havent been able to complete my thematic photoshoot from A to Z, which a couple of alphabets still missing, or not done. So I'm thinking of continuing that too..

BTW, Kotobian tadau kaamatan!
