Canon PhotoMarathon (Malaysia) 2009

Canon PhotoMarathon 2009

Remember how I said I was busy in my recent Site Update post? I wasn’t kidding. My plan to participate Canon PhotoMarathon 2009 was pretty much screwed when client couldn’t get things in place on time. ๐Ÿ™

Well, it’s a good thing for me in a way – I needed the rest, nevertheless I still made my way to the PhotoMarathon at around noon. ๐Ÿ™‚ Big thanks to the organizers to allow me entry to taste a bit of the experience.

I took the long walk down the Elephant Walk, just like everyone else.

And down further, reaching the point where I met a friend of mine who so happened to turn out to be one of the Winner for the competition. ๐Ÿ˜€

It was a hot day, by the time I got there I think half the participants already having a break and mingling around. I’m sure many of them got “poisoned”. ๐Ÿ™‚

As with one of the themes – “Shooting In Progress”, I must say that there’s really a lot of shooting in progress in my short sub-2-hour visit.

Was It Good?

I don’t know. I’ve had mixed feedback from participants so far.

Some left early. Some stayed till the end. Some had fun. Some were disappointed.

As for me, I think the food and drinks there should be subsidized. ๐Ÿ˜› Other than that, I think the best part of such outing is actually meeting friends and have a good time – whether or not you win anything. ๐Ÿ™‚

goldfries rated this product :


  1. yeah the bad part is the food and drinks, I agree should subsidized. It’s sooo expensive! RM5 for a can drink and RM10 for food? and the upload system should be tested to make sure it can handle so many participants too.

  2. the event was okay but the F&B were hopeless, and i agree with everything saimatkong just mentioned..

  3. too bad i din win anything…..=(
    congratz to you, saimatkong =D

    Yeah, I was walking down the path wearing LYN T-shirt and someone called me – I couldn’t recognize him on the spot. ๐Ÿ™‚ good job for saimatkong, last we met at DiGi dinner he was asking me some stuff as he was still trying out DSLR shooting. ๐Ÿ˜€ now can win the 55-250 IS already – damn nice lens btw, I’ve used it before. value for $$$.

    Back to the food & drinks – see la, I go 1 hr+ only also I say it should be subsidized. Cos I didn’t bring drink also, some more earlier already go do location shoot.

    Come to the place – I see a lot of water but cannot drink wan. ๐Ÿ˜€ Ask the kakak canned drinks how much, was told it’s RM 3. WTH?!?! I know I sounded cheap la but since I can stand the thirst I might as well save up the $$$.

  5. Wait a minute?
    I think I saw a LYN Shirt guy at the near the Lighthouse there…Dun tell me that is GOldFries?
    swt…I shud have known
