Teaser

So most of you have noticed that I've been away from this blog for quite a while. Well, I just finished my 9-day trip in Peninsula Malaysia with my dad and my birding friends. We were all warmly welcomed by many Malaysian birders there, especially the Neoh family who took care of us for most of the trip. We all feel really thankful. It's one of the best trips so far, with the total list of 180 species and 10 lifers for me. There'll be a long series of photos from now on, so just bear with it for a while lol. Here's a bit of a teaser for the trip. I just got a 550D, so now I can shoot in videos! Oh by the way, the bird is a Garnet Pitta, one of the star birds in Merapoh, the second place we visitted.

Yes we might have met. I met Dr Neoh's eldest son on Saturday while shooting in front of Jelai. This is a real teaser, I've yet to get this Pitta. Great video from your new toy
