Nostalgia Mania Part 5: Chinese New Year February 2010

Whaddayaknow? Has it already been 1 whole year since the last CNY? Time flies when you're bogged down with work I guess. In retrospect, the following pictures were shot with my much-loved and trusty Canon EOS 1000D. If I recall correctly, I was also sporting the Tamron SP 28-75mm f/2.8. Ooohhh... and by the way - the reason why I look upon this set so fondly is also because some of the last few shots were taken with my dearly beloved Tamron SP 70-200 f/2.8.

The following photos were pretty much shot in sequence:
1. We stopped-over at Bidor for fruits;
2. Caught some clouds along the way;
3. Headed straight to, and checked-in the Oriental Star @ Lumut;
4. Stopped by Dad's Sister's crib (and shot a bunch of kids);
5. Went to late-Granparent's house in Kampung Koh @ Setiawan;
6. Attended a fancy dinner of the octogenarian dad of a local big-shot;
7. Visited an old friend (who later in the year got married); and finally
8. We left for home - No pictures there.

As a stranger once mentioned (correctly I might add), these pictures probably would not have a smidgen of sentimental value to viewers. However, the purpose of the 'Nostalgia Mania' series is merely a form a sharing (for the viewers) and self-reflection (for my photography) - both of which give me great joy.

These pictures below are in no way my best work - but at the time, with what I knew then, I was happy and proud of what I did, and what I aspired to do. So with this, I hope you enjoy viewing this as much I enjoyed reminiscing about it.
