'Mangasok': [proun] ma. nga. sok [/proun] is process to grow the 'padi huma', first by using a stick to make a small hole for the seeds. Padi huma will grow within few weeks without the need to worry about water and just rely on the rain.

How to get blue sky?

In my photography style, I tend to take  photo with slightly underexposed but that actually add more noise. In the post processing, I will just increase the highlight carefully to lessen the effect of the noise.

My Olympus E1+12-60mm: Visit to Kinabalu Heritage Hotel (Perkasa Hotel)

My recent visit to Kinabalu Heritage Hotel (formerly Perkasa Hotel) after years I haven't been there and many things improved. The best part is the chalet in the wood.
