Rollercoaster ride in Batam

I reached Batam at noon in batam time.
That's equivalent to 1pm Singapore time.
I'm in Batam for a camp.
I've been joining this camp for many years and have gone to a few places.
From a camper to group leader and now, I'm just helping out in some of the camp stuff.
2 years ago as a photographer, this year as a IT support person.

Anyway I'm back in Batam for the 2nd time.
1st time was with Gerald and Kelvin for sightseeing and spa.

Sitting 2 rows behind the coach driver was a time of roller coaster ride.
The driver was speeding thru a 2 lane road rather congested with cars, trucks and snaky  motorbikers.
What's worst was that we past by a school and it happened to be the release time for the students.
Imaging the numerous students zooming out with their bikes and driving "dangerously" on the small laned roads.

Snap once

2nd shot right after the above (that's about 3s later)

That's how fast the drive caught up with the log truck.
I could see the speedometer so I don't know exactly wht sped he was driving at.
But from the gear box, the bus seems to be going at 5th gear (there's a 6th gear if I din see wrongly)

4 hours of R&R this year. woot!
And we are going to have seafood on the 2nd night at the seafood place next to the hotel.

Hotel name: Golden View Hotel
Seafood place: Golden Prawn 555

oh... the kuei lapis from Batam is cheap.
I bought one box (normal cake box) at SGD$12.

SITEX 2008 buy: Epson V500

I don't usually buy big stuff from computer fairs.
This time, I've got my $400 worth of Learning Development Scheme (LDS) fund to claim.
That allows me to get something for myself.
It was great news to know that item I wanted to get is just nice for my $400 claim.
Presenting Epson V500:

Is this all a coincidence?

Moody, rainy weather
With moody feeling...

Who is the real me?

What is my true form?
What is my true character?
What is my true personality?
What will the real me be like?

All these laughter,
Are they for real that I'm happy
Or it is all just a pretend?

For a long time,
I've been searching for the real me.
The me for whom I should actually be.
Somewhere deep inside my self,
Locks the real me.

The real me shows my true self.
The real me shows my true feelings.
The real me shows my true character and personality.
The real me that likes and world and enjoys every moment of life.

Read more on the web,
Somethings cannot be helped.
It's by nature due to the personality of my horoscope.

Who will the real you be like?

Anna was at my desk

Sweet and cutie Anna is in the staff room today.
She's down with fever.
Aw... so sad.
Having Anna in the staff room is always so much fun as she runs around.

She came to my table and I switched on the Photo Booth on my MBP.
Guess what... She's so happy and enjoys pressing the trackpad button to take picture.

This is the mirror effect from my MBP.

It's so fun with Anna around in the staff room.
