Never the less I ever thought of going to Telupid and coming back in one day. But this happened unexpected to us when we realized that the room that was initially ready for us to stay over night was not prepared after all. The trip from Kota Kinabalu to Telupid was a very uncomfortable one for me as headache and dizziness felted along the way of the trip even thou we have an expert driver and a brand new Toyota Pickup Land Cruiser. I never like the new model of Toyota Pickup Land Cruiser as not saying I can buy it but in term of comfort level it sucks like hell.
The trip from Kota Kinabalu to Telupid took around 5 hours with us stop a while along the way, but the going back trip incredibly took 3 hours and a short break in Ranau. No one looking forward to making a night road trips but without any good accommodation, everything seem not looking right for us. Instead, we decided to go back and start the journey on 8 pm and reached at 11 pm.
The trip to Telupid is to attend a wedding of one of our church and cell group members. It not so bad after all because I managed to took some good shot out of it. I utilized what I learned for the past three month for this manual digital camera and apply it. Still, I have problem on dialing a perfect aperture and shuttle speed of the camera as the church inside look grim. It makes me wonder if I have to charge more on people that I have to go to some interior places that I know that I will have difficulties of taking good photograph.
The wedding is fairly moderate with a typical Kadazan Christian wedding although it looks like a Malay wedding. There are bunch westerners of the bride colleague came all the way with the big bus coach from Kota Kinabalu. I wonder how they are going to coup the long hour of winding roads back then. It must take them more that 3 hours. Luckily no one complaining as most of them really enjoy it. I took some of the photos of them drinking tapai a Kadazan mixed alcohol drink but better not to post in here as who know one might stumble over this blog and starts to take a legal action against me.
There is no charges and preparation for this wedding shot as I want to add few more hours to my taking photo field works. It really surprised me to read that most of the photo fanatics in Photo Malaysia bring their camera out with them. I don’t know if I am eligible to consider as a photo fanatics but I not the one who would like to have a camera all the time. Indeed, that one might say that you might lose chances of good moment. I prefer that the good moment comes to me rather of me going for them. It just like a fisher man who net lots of fish and let other goes so there still will be fish for you to fish. A weird philosophy but it is a good one to know.
