Penang Hill Steamboat Dinner ~ Part 8 – End of the Steamboat Dinner and Farewell Trip Home down the Hill FINAL   Leave a comment


Penang Hill Steamboat Dinner ~ Part 8 – End of the Steamboat Dinner and Farewell Trip Home down the Hill

This was the April’s Classmates Penang Lang gathering. Instead of luncheon, we decided on a Steamboat Dinner with the participation of spouses and partners at Penang Hill. A total of 27 participants were recorded and we had also six participants from a classmate’s family joining in. The steamboat dinner is reasonably delicious and we had a great time on the Hill.

After the waiting period, we started to walk to the Bellevue Penang Hill Hotel for our Steamboat Dinner. It was a short 5-minutes walk from the Station. A small hotel owned by Dato Lim Chong Keat, a brother of the late Chief Minister of Penang, Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu.

    The April “Penang lang” lunch was organised by Taikor at the Bellevue
    Hotel (in French “beautiful view” Hotel) as a steamboat dinner. From
    beginning to end, Taikor took care of every details, and we all
    enjoyed the evening without any hitch.
    Besides the usual Penang lang’s, hose who were in Penang then were
    lucky to take part: Li Li and Hun Soon from KL, Mubarak from P.
    Dickson, James Wong from Sg and myself from France. The unlucky ones
    left a few days before this event and could not attend: Hoon Eng from
    Sg, Hock Chark from KT.
    We were graced with the presence of the beautiful partners of some of
    our classmates.
    Together with the family of Beng Tatt, we filled up 3 tables
    So, up we went by the cable car, packed with tourists. It was still
    light as we chatted in the cool atmosphere up there in the garden of
    Bellevue.
    As dusk set in, we settled down as the lights of Penang went on.
    Soon, with everybody in, we dug into a wondersfull steamboat.
    As the evening drew to an end, some group photos eternalised this
    great evening together.
    Thank you, Taikor! ( Big Brother in Cantonese )

Developing Your Eye II ~ Day Six: “Landscape”

Day Six: “Landscape” — Crop Your Image

Today, let’s walk in the footsteps of masters like Ansel Adams and focus on landscape photography.

Landscapes generally focus on wide, vast depictions of nature and all of its elements, from formations to weather. In this genre of photography, you won’t find much of a human presence: nature itself is the subject. A focus on nature isn’t mandatory, however — you can also capture a sweeping panorama of a city.

Developing Your Eye II, Day Six: “Landscape”

Developing Your Eye II, Day Six: “Landscape”

Today, take a picture of a landscape. Focus on the gestalt — the entire setting as a whole, like the shot above of the English countryside in Kent — rather than a specific subject or focal point within the scene. The setting itself is the star.

Today’s Tip: You may have trained your eye to crop your photo while viewing it “in camera.” But if not, crop your landscape photo once it’s uploaded onto your computer, using a free image editor like PicMonkey or Pixlr.

Visit the resource page for details on cropping and image editing tools. Remember to tag your post with #developingyoureye and check the Reader to see posts from fellow course participants!

 Day Five: “Connect” — Tag Your Photo

In this age of social media, we hear the word connect often, don’t we? Connect with us on Facebook! Connect with me on LinkedIn! Given what today’s technologies can do, it feels like the world is getting smaller, and we’re more connected than ever.

 

Day 5 - Connect

Day 5 – Connect

There are many ways to interpret this theme: from a gadget to a handshake, from a bridge to a gathering among friends. What’s yours?

Today’s Tip: Add relevant tags to your post, like “photography.” The image above could also be tagged with “bridge” and “San Francisco.” Tags group your related posts together, help to organize your site content, and tell readers what a post is about. Tags also make it easier for others to find your latest posts in the Reader.

Visit the resource page for details on tagging. Don’t forget to tag your post with#developingyoureye and check the Reader to see posts from fellow course participants!
