.. of St. Aloysius..

Could you believe that I didn't even notice such a beautiful church exist near my neighborhood all this time??? Couples of weeks ago I've stumble upon this beauty, accidentally mind you, I was on my journey to Lembah Impian ( I'll be blogging about that in another post )

I’ve stopped by and get some shots. I heard some music came out from the church, therefore I took a peek and I saw some youths are doing music practicing. They didn’t notice me snooping around outside.

Then suddenly this dude came out from the church to this car. I was trying to act NOT to be suspicious coz that time I was armed with a camera at hand. So I was making my best impression like I was a regular at that place. ( which I am NOT, it was my 1st time there! )

Here are some shots I manage to capture!

Welcome to St. Aloysius of Limbanak ( I know the place sounded weird, but it's a nice place )

pretty huh?

Notice the far back colored area?
Those are tombstone
Yupe, you heard me, it's a cemetary behind the church.. spooky!

Look, it's Mother Mary's statue

Hey, it's St. Aloysius!

This is how it looked inside! Nice rite?

P/S: Btw, I'm gonna upload couple more pics to my deviant site too! Feel free to check it out @

My very first..


Remember my bday cake baked by Fiona & Emilina made for me?
*Look cake below*

I was curious how to bake a cheesecake and I decided to ask my baker.. I mean Fiona my NEW sifu to teach me.

So I went to Fiona’s place couple weeks ago after begging and pleading her till she must teach me ( nah, didn’t beg or plead actually.. made that part up. Fiona is a sweet person and she’s willingly to share me her secret recipe *hug Fiona* )

I wanted to take a photograph of Fiona BUT she was reluctant to be photographed. Maybe she wanted to remain anonymous (?) therefore no picture of her will be shown here.

Now, back to serious business..

Wanna know how a cheesecake is made?

Read on peepz!

Step 1: Get your ingredients ready

Step 2: Mix it up

Step 3: Make sure it’s really equally mix up

( this pic shown here that it’s NOT yet evenly mix up yet )

Step 4: Bake it in the oven

Opss.. forgotten to snap this stage :p Well, ust use your imagination la ok people?

Step 5: This is how it looks like after taken out from oven

*taking it out from the container

Step 6: Last Step – Decorate it!

Now, ladies and gentlemen, boys and gals...

I present..





My very 1st cheesecake!

Very starry hor?!

It looked soooo beginners rite?

Now check this out!

This is what I call REAL CAKE!

( This is made by an expert. Actually that afternoon, one of Fiona’s aunt came by with this cake – black forest cake – which was made by her! Super nice rite?! )

Yeah, I can confirm it’s yummilious after eating the cake.

No, I didn’t eat that MUCH la ok, crazy meh!
That'll be like 1/4 of the cake.. I'll be puking cake after that :p

Melancholy Friday

July 14, 2006 ( Friday )
Melancholy Friday

I still can’t forget how you look at me

I know those eyes are trying to say something

It felt like sadness or was it disappointment?

All I can do is to force a smile

Awkward it may seem but what else can I do?

Was it bad timing saying those words?

I have no choice unless you gave me an alternative

I feel so bad, but it’s NOT my intention

Life needs to go on, I need to go on

Leaving the memories behind is hard to do

I know we make a great team, just doing our thing

Who knows in the future we might be together again

Working side by side and building our team.

Harvest Fest in KDCA

For those who miss out the fest last month in KDCA, do not fret here are some pics I managed to take while I was there for some *ahem* promotion. The upside of going: I got the chance to snap some pics! Yay! Downside of going: Had to work on a holiday. Pff! Oh and Thanks to the GOOD weather that day I got myself sunburned too. Ah yes, typical HOT day in Kota Kinabalu. Should have slapped on MORE sun block! >.<

Back to the story, I’ve reach KDCA before 8am that day. Yupe, had to; No choice! Need do some setting up. After that I went photo hunting.

Look what I’ve snapped:-

The Sumazau dance.
A typical performance harvest festival.

The house band musicians
How can you dance without music rite?

Hey, some old ladies were watching the performance too!

Wah Makcik, enjoy saja hisap sigup nampaknya.. ;p

Passed by some traditional houses

I went into some of the traditional houses, here is one of them.

This is inside of a bajau house

I went to another traditional house. Checked out what did I see!

Behind the scene
some were still busy getting pretty..

This one is a guy getting ready to be handsome..
You thought only girls wanna be pretty meh?

This is a picture of a bobolian. (Bobolian means a ritual specialist – wah, so high-tech ar the name! )
the male version of Bobolian is called Bobohizan.

Pass by some stalls too. Mostly selling local goods.

Ah, at the CD stalls ( Semua Ori geng!)

Mari mari mari..

Siapa mau beli album John Gaisah?

Nda ngam hati?

Bah, Clarice la.. Sumandak gitu.

There was a stall selling this.

I forgotten what izzit called kupang? ( Mas: what's the name liao har? ) but it’s belong to one of the “shell” family.

They were selling 2 types.

This one – the shell looks bit rough.

And this one – the shell is smoother.

They actually help you to “panggang” it on the spot.

RM7 per kilo man!

There was a stall selling “Jaruk Tuhau”

For those who do not know what is Tuhau. It means Ginger ( or wild ginger? )

The famous Sabah Tea! Come let lepak and drink in tea!
Wanna know more about Sabah Tea check out the website here.

I went into the longhouse and they were selling lots of handicraft, too bad I had NO time to check out the thing that were on sale. Boohoo!

Taukeh-taukeh kraft tangan..

Have you notice most of them are ladies. Actually ALL of them were ladies that day.

Does this means guys doesn’t do/sell handricraft?

Something caught my attention.

Look, so innovative! Nice rite?

While I was at the longhouse there were some tv crew interviewing some people ( I think it’s from RTM )

I’ve notice something when I was asking people to pose for me. There were different types of characters.

We have those





Boy, gimme a smile.. say cheese!
How sweet!

Colorful dress! Nicee…
( btw, they are local native from Pitas District )

There were those





Kid ( sitting on the right side ): So sien need to take pics again. This is my 73th time pose liao lar..bored la!
btw, this costume is wore by the tradisional Kadazan Papar area

Here are those





aiks? how come the girl in the middle is not looking at the camera?

So I decided to ask them to pose for me AGAIN.

Okay, take TWO!

What's with the. Okaayy.. nevermind. NEXT!

Here is the act-natural-ones

They didn’t even notice I was taking the pic ( it's either that or they were playing cool )

Here are other pics that i managed to shoot..

Old fella People starting to pile in..

Some of the dancers

Datuk Musa Aman & Datuk Chong Ka Kiat is there for the opening too!

Sometimes I feel that Harvest festival is being overly tourimize. Yeah well, it's true that Harvest festival is the MAJOR attraction for Sabah and for May is being the busiest month for those in the tourism line.

For me harvest fest NOT ONLY about getting the Ang-Mo or tourists in the country..

some of the ang-mo and tourist came to KDCA

Or who is the NEW Unduk Ngadau ( basically the Harvest Queen) for Harvest Fest

Manage to shoot some of the participants for the beauty pageant.
They were walking pass me.

It’s supposed to be a thanks giving ceremony for the Kadazandusun ethnic communities. *sigh* Well, I supposed this is the NEW way to celebrate it. Wanna celebrate? Make sure it's a BIG one!

Bah Aramaitii!

hanging out with MK.
