Nusantara Heritage

Set out to capture memorable  moments of the traditional dances from around the regions of South-east Asia but, in the event, ended up shooting the models of a fashion show. Well, don’t blame me!

Just a quick run-over: the Nusantara Heritage event was held in aid of the charity foundation- Tun Ahmadshah Foundation. Spread over 3 days, there were traditional dance performances, entertainment by singer Felix Agus, and a Batik & Songket Fashion Show. An artworks auction was held on the night of 28th March at the 1Borneo Ballroom.

Reaching for the Sky!

Commonly seen in Sabah,  the Great Egrets (Ardea alba) are now assembling in great numbers around the coasts of Kota Kinabalu. Could it be that the breeding season is near?

A few weeks ago the back feathers of the egrets were to be seen in pure white colour. But in the last week or so, the feather seems to be turning into a yellowish colour in many of the birds. Perhaps an ornithologist could explain this phenomenon?

The Wizard of Oz

There you go! I am really getting cheesed off with the constant naggings from friends abroad about this little place called the Australia Place. What is there to see and what is it about? Here it is! Read it and weep!
