Gloson Photography (24 Photos)

By Gloson On August 31, 2009 13 Comments

I love photography. And recently, I have become very interested in photography. I don’t have any professional cameras (or not I should’ve started earlier), but just a small cheap one (which doesn’t capture as well as other cameras do).

One fine day, there was this beautiful purple sunset. It was spectacular! So, I decided to take a photo of it. I also took some other photos. Next, I enhanced the photos using Picasa (I only used it to make the pictures more contrast).

Then, I started my flickr account (Please add me if you want :-) ) and uploaded the photos there.

By the way, today, 31st August 2009, is Malaysia’s 52nd National Day! So here are the photos of my beloved country :-)

Then, the morning after the next day, I went cycling to take some photographs. Here are some best ones that I took.

Shot while the car is moving. When the car came, I quickly hit the ‘snap’ button and turned the camera to the direction of the moving car while the camera was capturing the scene.
Zoooom! 3

A few days ago, my dad found some old photos of me in his computer. Those pictures were taken when I was 3, 4, and 5. So, I thought I might like to share them with you ;-) . Here they are!

I appreciate my father for introducing me to the computer and finding these photos. I also thank my mother for taking the time to nurture and take care of me when I was young. I hope you enjoyed my photos. :-)


I Won an Acer Notebook Computer from a Blog Carnival!

By Gloson On June 22, 2009 25 Comments

PICT0005Hooray! I won an Acer notebook computer (and a Kaspersky Internet Security pack for a year) from a blog ‘k’arnival in Malaysia sponsored by Kaspersky. I’ve always wanted a notebook computer.

The computer I used before (some sort of a cross between a notebook and a desktop) was too inconvenient and the screen was too small (800px x 600px). That was why I badly wanted a notebook computer.

Blog 411

PICT0389 If you’ve read my blog post yesterday, you would know that I was attending the blog 411 session at the blog carnival, where famous Malaysian bloggers share their tips and experience on blogging.

There were two contests there: The K.O. Quiz contest, and the live blogging contest. The grand prize for each of the contests is an Acer notebook computer. To be honest, I wrote yesterday’s post because I participated in the live blogging contest, but I didn’t win probably because I am good at writing tips, not events.

So, I entered the quiz contest, in which you would be asked questions on blogging, Internet security, etc. Here are some pictures of me participating in the K.O. quiz contest. (Thanks to Niki Cheong for taking these photos below.)

I am the one in the white shirt. The stuff on my face is a Kaspersky logo sticker.

That’s Amanda Choe asking me the final question of the quiz.

And… to my surprise, I was the winner! I felt very touched because I’ve never won 1st place in a contest like this before. I just couldn’t believe it!



First of all, I want to thank my parents for taking me to the blog carnival. I also want to thank all the people there in the carnival for supporting me. Lastly, I want to thank my blog readers for encouraging me to blog. Thank you very much! :D

Now, with this notebook computer, I’ll enjoy blogging more! I’m looking forward to writing more quality blog posts for you, so, please stay tuned!

Cheers! ;)

Blog Seminar with Top Malaysian Bloggers

By Gloson On June 20, 2009 10 Comments

Hey guys, I have been attending the blog ‘k’arnival today at Petaling Jaya in Malaysia today. It was a very exciting event. In fact, this is the very first blog carnival I have ever been to. Now, I want to share my experience on the Blog 411 session.

Blog 411

I attended the “Blog 411″ session in the carnival. There were quite a number of people there at the seminar. It’s when popular Malaysian bloggers, like Kenny Sia, Jason Goh, Niki Cheong, and other popular Malaysian bloggers speak and share their experiences and tips on blogging.

Oh, and here is some (cool) pictures I took from the blog 411 session:



Yeah, I think those are some of the best tips they’ve shared, and I agree with that. The seminar was awesome and I enjoyed hearing the top bloggers speak and had a lot of fun! I learned a lot from the seminar and I am looking forward to attending this blog ‘k’arnival next year!

Update 22nd June 2009: Yay! I won a notebook computer from the K.O. quiz contest in this carnival!
