New Post has been published on http://blog.jannews.net/2014/07/kota-kinabalu-sabah/Kota Kinabalu, SabahI was away from the city last weekend to North Borneo, where the beautiful Kota Kinabalu (KK) city was at. This trip was partly conceptualized when I was visiting KK last year, in a conversation with Dr Soon Ruey (an amazing friend and great photographer). Dr Soon volunteered to organize a trip for mychiaroscuro.net members (local Olympus user forum in Malaysia), inviting us to go to KK for a weekend of shutter therapy adventures there. 

Kota Kinabalu is such a beautiful place! Mount Kinabalu (opening images here, plenty of them taken at different time of the day) is the peak of South East Asia, used to be the highest mountain of South East Asia but has lost about 6 meters over the years. This was my first time being so close to the mountain and gosh, it was such a majestic sight to behold. The KK city itself is located by the sea, overlooking sunset. There were markets setup along the sea and the place was bustling with activities throughout from afternoon till evening. With whatever little time that we had in KK, we attacked these places and what a wonderful experience it was, shooting in a beautiful city with fellow Olympus users. 

People in KK never failed to amaze me. I usually do not chatter up with strangers that I shoot, but one dude took off his shades, and asked me “what can I do for you, sir?”. I was shocked, and was speechless for a few seconds. Then we had quite a bit of chat. Surely this kind of warmth is a rarity in Kuala Lumpur, and I sure wish KK will remain as it is for a long time to come. 

Considering this was a photography-centric trip, I packed in more gear than I usually do. I have with me the OM-D E-M5 and PEN E-PL5, with 9mm F8 fisheye body cap lens, 14mm F2.5, 25mm F1.8, 45mm F1.8, and 75-300mm F4.8-6.7

New Post has been published on http://blog.jannews.net/2014/07/3-summer-plant-ideas/3 Summer Plant Ideas….Being on maternity and breastfeeding constantly (very hungry baby) has given me the chance to browse the web on my ipad a lot this last 7 weeks. As regular readers will know I am a total house plant addict although I rarely try anything interesting with my plants. 
Whilst browsing I have been collecting loads of Images of houseplants and this morning came across this article about summer plant ideas and I thought I would try my hand at something different, so inspired by the article I have put together my own 3 Summer Plant Ideas…
1) Succulents in Trays

Summer plant Ideas: Succulent display

Summer Plant ideas: Succulent tray
I really love the idea of putting a number of succulents together in a tray. The wonderful about succulents is not only are they great for novice houseplant gardeners, as they extremely hard to kill, but they come in a great range of shapes and textures making them perfect for grouping together…. the big squishy ones look great next to a spikey dude 
2) Getting Creative with Planters

Houseplant in a seashell

I spend a lot of time looking through charity shops and thrift stores looking for beautiful ceramic planters but never think about using objects I already have. A good friend’s mum from college had a beautiful house plant growing out of a beautiful African Drum, which I always thought was really cool and i love the idea of using found objects or pre-loved items to re-purpose as planters. The mirror ball idea is one I really like as positioned in an open window on a windy day would produce some crazy-ass reflections!!
3) Pots with faces
Perfect for introducing kids to plants: Wolf planter from etsy

Skull planters

Houseplant collection with a Stella Atelier face planter


Whether they are grouped together or you have one rouge smiling planter amongst your pots, these pots will bring a sense of fun to your house plant collection…. but be warned they are addictive ( I now have 4 Stella Atelier pots… whoops).
Animal planters are also a perfect way to get kids excited about house plants…. remember Mr Grasshead?…. I thought he was so cool…

New Post has been published on http://blog.jannews.net/2014/07/social-flycatcher-boat-billed-flycatcher/Social Flycatcher & Boat-billed FlycatcherI am linking up with Wild Bird Wednesday and Nature Notes
For my post this week I am sharing two Belize birds..the Social Flycatcher and another Belize lifer the Boat-billed Flycatcher. 

The Social Flycatcher at 6.3 to 7inches is the smallest out the three Flycatchers that look similar.. They are the Social Flycatcher, Great Kiskadee and the Boat-billed Flycatcher..  I have some shots of my   Great Kiskadee in Bermuda   to show more comparisons. 


 The Social Flycatcher has yellow underparts, crown stripe and a white throat.

The Social Flycatcher has a small stubby bill. 
 
These Social Flycatchers were trying to build a nest inside the umbrellas near the pool. 




Going thru my Belize photos I just noticed I have another lifer the Boat-billed Flycatcher. This bird has a heavier and broader bill and is about 9.3 inches compared to the smaller Social Flycatcher which is 7 inches. I am sorry this shot is so fuzzy. It was taken from the lodge’s restaurant and the bird was way down on the trees next to the river.. They are known to sit high in a tree to catch bugs..

This is the Great Kiskadee seen during my Bermuda trip.. a large flycatcher at 8.3 to 10 inches. Their wings and tail are brown with some rufous fringes..
As you can see these three flycatchers all look similar in colors, just different bills and sizes..
 Thanks for stopping by my post and for all the nice comments.

Camping Recipes: Everyday Amazing Recipes for every Camping Trip (Everyday Recipes)

Camping Recipes: Everyday Amazing Recipes for every Camping Trip (Everyday Recipes)

Camping is one of our favorite pastimes, and for good reason! There aren’t too many other activities out there today that help us slow down and unplug from the busy-ness of life in the way that camping does. Time just seems to slow down and work feels farther away than ever. There is something about getting rid of the modern conveniences that allows us to relax and just enjoy being alive without all the email, texts, and business calls getting in the way.

The only drawback to camping has always been good food. It”s the unfortunate side effect of “roughing it” that you don”t have access to an oven, refrigerator, microwave, or any of the other appliance that we all rely on to get a good, wholesome, home-cooked meal. It”s not like we starve on the camping trip, but hot dogs and marshmallows are only fun to eat for so long before it gets tedious. There is always the temptation to step up the experience by bringing along some of those modern cooking conveniences, which some people do, opting for big stovetops and electric travel cookers of all kinds of shapes and sizes. There is something about that, though, that dilutes the real experience of camping. Isn”t the point to be able to unplug and get away from all the stuff? Where does someone draw the line if cooking supplies are all good no matter how modern or complicated. At the same time, we should be able to have good food during our camp. Right? The point is to enjoy the adventure and the vacation. And when the food selection is that limited, it hurts the experience. If only we could enjoy the adventure and fun of making new and exciting foods without the bother of packing up all of our kitchen gadgets in hopes of getting access to electrical power.

Besides the enjoyment of getting to try new foods and being the hero of the campfire, there are a few other reasons to take these recipes with you out into the wild. These reasons are all health-related. Now you can feel good about being health conscious, in addition to making less trash, taking less equipment with you into the wild, and getting to enjoy a variety of tasty foods.

Here are some recipes you will find in the book:

S’more Pudding

Toasted Angel Food Cake

Basic S”mores

Breakfast Hash Mix

Charred Kale

Four-Cheese Potatoes

Campfire Calzone

Campfire Fondue

Foil-Wrapped Potatoes & Mushrooms

Easy Trails Trail Mix

Grilled Chicken & Veggie Packet

Root Veggie Taco Packet

Scrambled Campfire Eggs

Vegetable Rainbow

Peanut Butter Oat Cookies

and much MUCH more!
