Xmas Wishlist

23 December, 2007 | Written by Patchay at 8:57 PM in

I must say that I dislike being "tagged" by people in this blogging world.

However, I'll do THIS ONE because it is Christmas and I shall speak something genuinely from my heart...

Desmond Lee's tag asked Me what are my Christmas (or I would say for Year 2008) wishes? What's in my secretive wishlist?

Here's the top 3...

1. LOVE relationship (what???)
2. Better academic grades
3. Better job

Yes, relationship is somehow my No.1 wish for next year!

I'm not gonna tag anyone. Those who wanna be tagged can do so!

*** *** ***

Patchay wishes ALL a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2008!

May this Christmas season fill your home with joy and your heart with love.

I know these photos were taken like centuries ago... specifically on 8 September 2007 ... ...haha no time to update blog mah!

Destination = Sir John Chandler Park, Long Pocket, near Indooroopilly

Lifestyle: the usual water-sports on a Saturday...

01 December, 2007 | Written by Patchay at 9:28 PM in ,

Urbanity. Property. Architecture. Travel. All other things we care...

Malaysia City will be officially launched this Tuesday, 4 December 2007.

Since its inception on 1 July 2007, the website has grown Tremendously to more than 31,000 calculated unique visits as of today, in just 5 months period!

Average visits amounted to 285, while the best single day was a total of 740 visits. There were 82 comments and 45 categories so far.

Malaysia City has provided numerous information about upcoming Property launches in Malaysia, which some have not appeared on mainstream media. Malaysia City was also the most visited site for information regarding KL downtown's latest shopping mall - Pavilion KL, and is one of the most visited site for Penang Global City Centre.

Thank you to all who have supported the establishment of Malaysia City, including fellow forumers at the Malaysian chapter of SkyscraperCity.com, commonly referred by forumers as SSC.

And lastly, thank you to all faithful visitors that have made Malaysia City one of the fastest growing Malaysian urbanity, architecture and property-related site.

Riverfest Part III

Nothing much after RiverFire fireworks, except that our stomachs were growling extremely hard...


Everywhere was packed like sardines. At last we settled at an authentic Korean restaurant at Queen St.

OK. Photos will help Me do the talking...

My food... well I don't even know what it is called...

Riverfest Part II: RiverFire and The Glorious Skies

Awesome night...

Good show...

Spectacular photos...

Cool videos...

*** PHOTOS ***

Super-duper crowded...

Two F111 Royal Australian Air Force jets flew over Brisbane City in high speed, doing Fuel Dump and Burn - which marks the beginning of 30-minutes RiverFire fireworks show.

Light flashing across Brisbane City...

When 2 lights collide ...sounds like God is coming to Earth

Fires up an explosion of fireworks all over Brisbane City

View from South Bank...

Aerial view of Story Bridge...

Fireworks and music in the air...


Then suddenly... Brisbane high-rises went on fire (as in fireworks)

Brisbane RiverFire is one of Australia's grandest fireworks displays... of course the largest and most expensive is the New Year Countdown in Sydney.

The fighter jets flew again for the very last time... signifying the end of RiverFire 2007.

End of RiverFire. Goodnight Brisbane.

Riverfest Part I

18 November, 2007 | Written by Patchay at 10:55 PM in , ,

Riverfestival is Brisbane's major annual community and environmental festival celebrating its waterways and culture by focusing on the city's signature natural landmark, the Brisbane River.

This year, Riverfestival ran between 31 August to 9 September, but the major highlight was on this day - 1 September.

Brissy folks started to picnic as early as 8.00am

Brisbane Riverfestival incorporating RiverFire 2007 (on this day) officially marks the beginning of Spring Season. It is Brisbane's largest, grandest and most anticipated event of the year.

Crowded atmosphere...

Beautiful day...

After noon, there was a spectacular airshow by the Roulettes of Australian Snow Birds.

I managed to capture some stunts in the sky from where I was standing!

The Roulettes pilots perform aircraft formations and stunts in over the city and Brisbane River to drum up excitement.


Roulettes team inside red circles

a bird came to join them as well... :lol:

By 5.30pm it was getting dark... and this is the time everyone is waiting for !!!

Stay tune for "Riverfest Part II: Glorious Skies".
