What A Storm

Yesterday (Friday) Dubai was affected by heavy sand storm, I heard the local radio news said the whole UAE was affected by sand storm. It was my first experience to see such heavy sand storm after I've been working in Dubai for the past 6 months.

I was driving and I felt it was difficult to control the car if I drive fast. Imagine if I was not paying attention to control the car, I might hit with accident anytime.

I was planning to go out for some photo shooting to test out my new toy, too bad the storm spoiled my plan. Anyway, I managed to snap some the day before sand storm, but yesterday I planned to take some shots on the musical fountain at Festival City, too bad the storm really destroyed all out door activities.

Mall of Emirates

Burj Arab

Both pictures above was taken the day before the sand storm with my new Lumix DMC FZ18. I'm very happy with the OIS (Optical Image Stabilizer) feature, I don't need too rely on tripod anymore.

I met up with Eve in Mall of Emirates on that night who dropped by in Dubai for a short trip, then I brought her and her friend together to Souk Madinat Jumeirah to see the night scene of Burj Arab.

So now I've shown you how good is my new toy, to me it's value for money. Anyway, I'll back to Malaysia for Chinese New Year tomorrow night and I'll reach KLIA on Monday afternoon, then I'll straight fly back to my hometown Penang.

Anyway, I'll go down to KL during Chinese New Year to meet up all my friends and my colleagues in KL.
