Bario Sarawak

The Different Sceneries of Bario

One of the things to do in Bario: Photography

So what do in Bario beside eat until you break the weighting machine at the Bario Food Fest? Well, if you like to take photos, you will enjoy here. Beside taking potraits of the Kelabits people.

Bario is a very unique place to offer a few different feels of scenery in one place.

The Misty Village

I love this period of time the most. The whole place is so dreamy with the thick mist.

and when you got tired, you can have a cup of coffee by the road.

The Green & Blue Countryside View

During the late afternoon, it’s great to have a drive/walk around the village.

If only the road were well tar, then it would be great for cycling.

I was able to visit some Kelabit longhouses there and found out it is very different from the other ethnics longhouse design. Kelabit longhouse has a common kitchen. Everyone cook and eats together.

Oh ya, you can just walk into people’s house as if you stay there. LOL

 The Purple Sunset.

As you can see, this is my favorite spot in Bario. XD

I was running like mad to reach there before the sun truly set. Too bad I was a little late.

I wasn’t really prepared for Bario and missed out a couple of nice shooting spots.

Nevertheless, here are some from my friends who I met in Bario.

This spot is just few minutes walk from my Longhouse. Too bad I didn’t manage to go else can get a good shot of the milky way.

Yes. MILKY WAY!

The Milky Way Sky in Bario

Be hold!! The night sky in Bario.

It was soooo amazing. I was like…

Too bad I do not have a tripod with me, else I’m so gonna take a plane wreck + milky way combo!! hahaha

There’s this magical thing about this place. I guessed its the mood of the place and the heart warming people I met there. I think I missed the  most is the story telling session we had every night by the fire pit with a glass of home made pineapple wine, “Ada lagi”.

…….Okay, I admit I miss the pineapple wine. XP

Too bad, Uncle don’t allow us to take it out of Bario.

High Tea with the Bird and Panda

That’s Robin and his photography obsession.

I happened to be in KL for an event the other day, so I met up with Robin and Jasonbefore heading back to Malacca. It’s been ages since we met up, we chat from cameras to food to Kuching, basically anything under the roof. It was a good afternoon tea. It would be great if the Bear was there and even awesome if they brought a GongCha for me.  Hahaha..

Half through the chat, Robin noticed a bug on my head. I thought he was going to help me getting rid of the bug off my head but he went and took a photo of it. *sweat*

Oh well, photography always comes first for him. It seems like we all have our little obsession and passion of our own. For me, it’s drawing. My Miao&WafuPafu always come first XD.

Do you have anything you’re obsession or passionate about?

By the way, do check out the their blogs :D

The Bird who obsesses with Photography.

And the Panda who obsesses with Food… and Transformer :P

Face Detection

The other day was my colleague’s last day in the company and so she asked us to take some photos with her. Strange enough, the camera with face recognition system just would not focus on me. At first we thought it was a glitch or something.

But  later that, we took some more photos with more people, and surprisingly the camera focused on everyone except me. =.= Hmm….It’s either I do not exist or the camera recognition system only recognizes Humans only. ( The system thinks I’m at Cat. Oh yeah!! Hahaha.. )

Not focusing is still okay but imagine if the camera focusing on something that is not even there. O.o

Jeng Jeng Jeng!!!!!

Suddenly, face recognition system seems like kinda scary to me.. :/

Short note: It’s actually face detection not face recognition ^^” . Thanks to LongYC for the clarification :)
