The Moon, the sky and me.


it was saturday night. And i'm not a party freak. So we decided to go out that night to have some decent dinner at hartamas. I ate like i haven't seen any food for a week. From potatos, lamb, cheese, pizza, telur ikan bakar portuguese style to a gelato icecream. Did i say, i had briyani for lunch today? So, i guess you can calculate the amount of cholesterol i consumed today. Its okay, I don't wanna know about it!

With such amount of food, chores that involved some physical activity since early morning , i have a solid reason to get really really tired and sleepy. Lisa was driving home and i was already banging my head to sleep a few times.

As I reached home, i glanced to the sky as i felt a drop of water falling on my forehead. I was in awe for a few seconds. It was a cool breezy night, and oh my god! the sky was not like any other day. It was cloudy with a very interesting hue of warm colors. The moon was hiding its face amongst the sourmilky cloud. My lethargy automatically fade away and my eyes were as fresh as a morning dew. And I was gazing at the beautiful painting on the sky without a blink and i decided to take my camera and tripod because this is too priceless to let go. The result i get was not as beautiful as seeing it live. I couldn't get a really sharp cloud as the cloud was moving due to the breeze. I took my camera, put on my tripod, set a slower shutter and took a deep breath before slowly pressing the button. I hold my breath, carefully release my finger and let the shutter closes slowly. And this is what i want to share with you.. voila'
