Congrats Gokula and Mohana

I just came back from KL, attending Gokula's wedding in PJ. He got hitched to Mohana (a very lovely lass, tall too!) last Sunday, 14th December in a traditional Indian wedding ceremony in the morning, which was then followed by a lavish dinner reception at night.

Here's some sniper shots I made during the ceremony in the wedding hall:

Congrats to the lovely couple:


Here's their walk-in part of the ceremony:




Look at the horde of photographers, official and unofficial:


Washing of the feet:


There was even a "kolam" at the entrance of the wedding hall:


Later that night, we attended the dinner at a nice hotel, and during the bride and groom's entrance, they were escorted in by a pair of bagpipe players! I kid you not! Too bad I didn't shoot them...


The newlywed pouring the champagne:


Gokul giving his maiden speech as the bridegroom:


All in all it was a grand occasion, and I managed to meet up with a few old friends from university. The only downside is: they keep asking me when's my turn... :P

Another Life movie premier

Today was the premier of the movie Another Life that was shot earlier this year starring the CSPians.



It was supposed to be a funny story about an average Joe named Haikal who experiences mysterious changes in his life, all of which is tied to a strange rock that he bought at a 2nd hand items shop.

Anyway, hope it gets published soon :D on youtube :P

HobbyCon 2008 preparation

Photobucket

I went to Kompleks Asia City today to help out the pre-HobbyCon setup. The setup crew did have to wait a while for the tables and chairs to arrive because the management could only release the said furniture at around 8pm. Fortunately the tables and chairs arrived before that, so work started a bit earlier.

Here's some more volunteers setting up a display rack:
