Jard's 7 Super Shots

I am taking part in HostelBookers 7 Super Shots! How did I come to this? Well, I was tagged by none other than ms Fie-nuts herself in her own 7 Super Shots blogpost.

It's a game initiated by HostelBookers where each blogger has to do the following steps. First, choose 7 of your own photos, one for each of the following categories as done below and then write a description for each picture. Once you're done, nominate five other bloggers to do the same.

Please be forewarned that I never claim myself to be a skillful photographer. I'm just a girl with a camera. Nothing else.

Here goes nothing, revealing the best/worst lot of them all!
  • A photo that…takes my breath away

Night fall from the backyard of my home in Kota Belud, Sabah surrounded by paddy fields. Among the main reasons why I fly back so often. Taken with a Nokia phone.


  • A photo that…makes me laugh or smile
When aunts come together and starts chit-chatting from dawn to dusk to help during a big festival such as a wedding. Picture taken at Kota Belud, Sabah. (Canon 500D)

  • A photo that…makes me dream 
An abandoned building in Perak. If you don't want it, then give it to me! I'll restore it into a beautiful bungalow. Shot taken at Taiping, Perak. (Canon IXUS 105)
  •  A photo that…makes me think
When will Kuala Lumpur ever be free from traffic jams? HAHA. Picture taken at a supposedly busy commercial area at Makhuhari Messe, Tokyo, Japan. (Canon 500D)
  • A photo that…makes my mouth water
Not my best shot but it's the most googgled picture on the web.
Tarap fruit, only known to grow in SABAH ONLY!!! No way else! (Canon IXUS 105)

  • A photo that…tells a story

"Hey Jard, why you're wearing ugly slippers?" Shot taken during my nightly mamak stalls hangout around Kuala Lumpur. (Nokia hand-phone)




  • A photo that am most proud but really not worthy for any National Geographic shot.
Suburban area of my home at Kota Belud, Sabah. My mom wanted to turn it into a postcard. Haha. (Canon 500d)


Who else should I nominate? Lemme think.
Gonna nominate:

  • @pummkin 
  • @Soulzeshifter 
  • @eyriqazz
  • @ZarulUmbrella 
  • @arabellamocha
OK, finally done! Yay!

Nice photos, I like the old abandoned building and the last photo. I think most of us chose the National Geographic photo really well. It does look like a postcard!

Jard The Great said... [Reply]

Andreas Setiawan said... [Reply]

I'm curious with the Tarap fruit, is it taste like durian or jackfruit?! And the cat is so cute! Look his expression, hahaha...

Jard The Great said... [Reply]

@Andreas Setiawan neither of the above. tarap tastes very sweet. I think almost like rambutan but squishy like durian. =p

so you're a cat lover too? hehee
