For photography purposes, you are allowed to go into FRIM two times for free. We did not want to waste the opportunity so we were there again today. This time we went to the Canopy Walkway. Totally worth the climb. Since I shot mostly film, I’ll do another update once I get them developed. Here are the ones I took using my point and shoot and some from Afiq and Roger.
There are stops between the bridges that are built on top of trees where you can stop to admire the scenery. These stops can hold from 4 to 8 persons at one time so you’ll need to keep moving when people come. The weather was good but the sky was hazy so KL couldn’t be seen properly from there.
It started to rain after we came down from the Canopy Walkway. We were still about 15 minutes walk away from our car so we decided to run for it, under the heavy rain. Got soaked within seconds. Mercifully, the rain stopped soon but we were already drenched. Went for lunch outside FRIM after that. Seriously difficult to find a mamak stall at Kepong.
We wanted to wait for sunset to get the perfect lighting to shoot a particular subject. So we dropped by Kepong’s Jaya Jusco to lepak.
Playing House of the Dead 3 with Roger. This version has an improved reloading method which requires you to just pump the handle of the gun (like how you would reload a shotgun). Otherwise, the storyline remains very similar to the one I played before. I’ve finished the whole story. The bad guy died in the end.
Had some sushi at Jusco before heading back to FRIM for the final shoot. It was raining but we went on anyways. The slippery forest floor and the constant raindrops on the lenses are annoying. Because we were shooting the sky, this means that we have to constantly dry the lens prior to taking a photo. In one shot, I had the camera pointing up, pre-focused and everything, and Afiq was wiping the lens with a lens cleaning cloth. At the count to three, the moment he took the cloth away, I had to shoot or else the rain drops will have fallen on the lens and ruin the photo. We had to do it many times. It was hilarious. I don’t have the photos of the final shoot yet but it’ll be up on FRIM Shoot Part 3.
And since FRIM was so near to the Kepong night market, and since it was a Sunday, there was no real reason not to take them for tofu. They could smell it the moment they got out of the car.
Definitely one of the more interesting weekends for me. Will consider going hiking/mountain climbing again. Continue reading
