It was great to visit one of the landmark in Labuan when I’m terribly bored to live in this island. Either Im not the type of guy that enjoy night life, or there’s more about Labuan that I haven’t explore yet. A visit to the obsolete horse riding centre, and the Labuan Bird Park, gave another perspective of living in Labuan. I felt more close to the nature, and the consciousness about my responsibility towards my hometown.
With BenQ DC C510 digital camera, it was a few step closer to the enjoyment of taking beautiful pictures of the types of bird they have here, in Labuan Bird Park. I admit I always bitching about the flawness of this camera, but then, it comes in handy on certain condition. Still I’m dreaming of FZ7, that provides 12X digital zoom, Leica Lens and Mega OIS.
Eversince the creation of mylabuanisland.blogspot.com, aspired by the consciousness inside me, I worked and planned for one portal where anyone in this world can access some virtual informations with regards to this island. For ages, Labuan has been known ultimately for its night entertainment, duty free liquor and Guest Relation Officers that easily access to anyone with the passionate of horse, and lonely pathetic guy with big ‘gun’ small brain. Labuan is not all about degradation of morality. There’s more to explore in Labuan.
Grown up in few places around Malaysia, and travelled to few countries made my love to Labuan stronger. I’ve been in Labuan permanently for almost two years. I was born here, but travelled to many places due to my father job as government servant. Always blurred when asked about Labuan, I put on much strengths on my curiousity and consciousness to learn more about Labuan. And here I am, witnessing the growth of Labuan for the past couple of years, in every aspect I can think of, be it economic development, society imbalance and immoralities issues. It’s all here in my head. I admit I am not into politic, because I don’t see myself fit in big leather chair and wearing fancy apparels to impress people and so-called boosting self-esteem by looking good. Anyway, I believe in brain functionality, rather than dead fabrics sticking on my body.
mylabuanisland.blogspot.com, was meant to be another source for anyone, and those who claimed www.labuantourism.com.my lacking of informations and updates. It wasn’t meant to compete with the government subsidized medium. It was meant to educate peoples, to retract the facts that we have cheap booze and easy access to degrading female in skimpy cloth.
Some people told me they rather live in kampung style, where everything so simple, but still accepting modernization. That best explains why we have imported japanese cars, at least two of them, parked in our garage; other than the fact that the car price is cheap, thanks to the duty free status. For me, modernization comes in package of intellectual, infrastructures and society development. It’s useless to consume high-tech material when we only throw silence on the fact that sometimes abuse our privacy, socio-mentality and economy opportunities. Maybe it’s just me that think Labuan peoples dont have much control on certain matters mentioned above; professionally or just the like of orang kampung.
To me, Labuan is my responsibility. I am not Spiderman, whom rewarded with greater power, and burdened with greater responsibilities. I only have this blog medium, a pinch of ideas, thoughts & opinions, and few peoples to read my blogs. But still I think Labuan has a long way to go, and here I am taking the initial steps on the mission to contribute something useful to Labuan.
Please dont vote me for the next election. I’m terribly hopeless in giving false hope.
