Just a few days after I got back from Cebu, work almost immediately beckoned in Malaysia. This time around, I had a grand time. :-)

Seeing Double. KL Bird Park.

Feeling Pogi. This male peacock was spreading its feathers with hope of snagging a female. Must be the heat. Hehe!

Big-Ass Pelican Dwarfing Those Crazy-Necked Flamingos

Caught In The Act of Shitting

Pretty Cascades at the KL Menara

On-the-spot artist at work. Saw this guy's portraits last year. Never caught him in action until now. Damn, he's good! The Kuala Lumpur Menara is his spot.

... And the crystal ball says that you'll be in KL this week...

Splash In the Heart of the City

Putra Mosque in Putra Square

Perdana Putra. The Prime Minister's Office.

Manhole Detail. PutraJaya.

Tent Structures At PutraJaya.

Seri Wawasan Bridge. Very Unique and very much a sign of affluence!

Patterns, patterns... everywhere!

Before we left Cebu, I just had to see this lighthouse("parola" in Cebuano) that has been in existence for 100 years already. As luck would have it, the structure is located just a few minutes away from our house in Lilo-an.

Built in 1904, it's a marvel to see it still standing and guiding ships and fishermen alike along the Mactan Channel.

A very little history quoted from an article in SunStar Daily goes:
"The Liloan parola was built in 1904 by virtue of an executive order made by the American Civil Governor William Howard Taft on July 28, 1903. The parola was then constructed the following year."

The full article can be found here.

An artist neighbor who draws the paper's editorial cartoons also told me that the parola is a favorite spot for some of Cebu's artists and painters. Overlooking Bagacay Point, the lighthouse makes a commanding presence amidst the crashing waves below its cliffs.

This was the last image recorded on my cam before the battery conked out...

Something you really don't want to see by the poolside... and yes, he made a big splash. Hehe!
