23rd February 2009, Brunei celebrated the 25th National Day.

I bet, all of the local webpages will be posting about today's celebration, and I hope, you can find something here which is not available else where.

Different people have different view in contributing their share during this day, for us, this is one of our ways to contribute, by sharing the celebrate moment with all of you out there.

Having a quick breakfast before the big show, as they said, do not miss your breakfast.

Last minute adjustment of the attire.

The "coach", making sure the participants are in order.

A great bunch students, all of them are prefects, from MD, as they said, the hostellites are requested to participate in the field performances, where as the non-hostellites were asked to participate in the flag waving.

Well, well, well, no prize for guessing who they are. Great gears Mister!

Seoul | Twosome in Apgujeong

Apgujeong besides being famous for its row of boutiques, it is the place to be seen, or to see celebrities.

Armed with the Canon video cam, the Crew members of Star Sports caught filming for their next show.

Then at another corner, saw this crew with their abundance of clothes, and that guy with the yellow shirt carrying a professional Canon DSLR, perhaps trying to do a model shoot.

And at a cafe at the corner I saw a Korean Celebrity, or maybe not.

Another interesting thing about the Seoul's Rodeo Drive is their modern antiques and their architectural style, just like the one reflected from the mirror.

And this interesting parking style, just like those in the Fast and Furious, Tokyo Drift.

Plastic Surgeons could also be found here.

And finally, a place for someone, not threesome, but TwoSome.

SEOUL | Apgujeong a.k.a Rodeo Drive

Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, USA, needs no introduction, but the obsession of this stretch of place for Korean made them built an identical area in Seoul.

Apgujeong a.k.a. Rodeo Drive, in Seoul also housed various designer boutiques, and this is also the place to be seen and to see various artists.

Indulge yourself in new handbags and accessories at the Coach boutique.

Or some new designer apparels like GA, and only those special customer can park their car in front of the boutique's door.

The huge label of DKNY could be seen from afar.

It is quite a walk, many smaller alleys could led you to their local designer's boutiques.

And if you need new shoes for your aching sole, Jimmy Choo's is at your convenience.

But I know, most of the ladies could not resist to get their hands on the new Speedy at Louis Vuitton, and just look at the size of their boutique!

I don't wanna mentioned about their Gucci's, Balenciaga's or the rest, if you want more, you need to come and experience it yourself!

Ta Phrom | Do U See What I See?

WARNING: Do not read this if you are alone at night! You've been warned!

Exploring more of the Ta Phrom ruins.

Tourists admiring the huge root "hugging" the ruins wall.

A wider view of the area where Lara Croft's did her action.

A different mystic view of the entrance, effect done in-camera.

Exploring inside the ruins. At times, there are no one in-sight, as I will try to avoid the typical touristy routes, hence I do came across some empty and eerie spot you might say.

Getting closer with the antique artifacts, sometime I do imagine that does "what if?" Just like those in the movie, which can gives you a crypt.

And finally, "something" came up, tell me what you see inside the trunk of that tree?
