Though ours was neither not free and nor looked the same, when I came to know about it earlier this month, it is still better be save than sorry. Fortunately, my kids doesn’t really like to play with it.. so its more of a toy ornament or exhibit around the house.
Took part in the Picture the Colour 2012, an annual Bird Photography competition organised by Jurong Bird Park. I had no luck last year in the professional category (using DSLR). I tried again this year but entered in the Amateur category (compact camera) instead. With luck, I got first this time with the winning shot below.
Winning picture for Picture the Colour 2012, Amateur Category, taken with Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V. This picture was touched up a little to bump up the constrast plus some sharpening. The original picture submitted can’t be post processed, so looked a little stale.
I know the shot above has no wow factor. That’s not the point. The point is this shot won me one Nikon 1 J1 Camera and $300 worth of Cathay photo vouchers. Off I went to Jurong Bird Park to collect my prize.
With Christmas just round the corner, festive decorations was up to greet visitors.

After collecting my prize in Jurong Bird Park, I decided to hang around for some photography. First stop is to have a quick lunch at one of the restaurant there, Bongo Burgers.

After lunch, I stepped out to take some pictures of the flowers (especially orchids) near the entrance before leaving.
