hola amigo, que ha sido un tiempo desde que escribo algo en este blog!
Hahahahahaha, I bet you would have a minor difficulty in understanding what’s the meaning of the above ‘greeting’ isn’t? Its a Spanish fellas.
Well, you can always Google translate it anyway =)
Since now the Euro fever getting really high, I definitely have a strong faith that SPAIN gonna be the ‘juara-lah’ (although I’m certainly not the big fan of football… but Tores, I am fully supporting your team, ahah how’s that sound?)
HOYEAHHHHHH!!! U GO BOYS!
Lets keep the Euro stuff aside for the time being okeh?
Oh yeah, its not only the greeting I’ve wrote in Spanish, apparently the title of the entry also in the same language.
Translation : REVISIT PUTRAJAYA
Now lets get down to the serious business. I promise to tell you more about our second outing at Putrajaya in my previous post. We, the Team SPQAL, decided to revisit Putrajaya for our video making shoots. Obviously, the pictures and the videos that we managed to capture in the last outing with Dr Rosseni and all the Teslian was quite not sufficient enough for us in making a good video. Maybe its because of the time constraint and very limited places that we managed to visit. But its a total OK for us as we did enjoyed the field trip to the max!
So, on 27 of May 2012, we all agreed to rented a car for our video shooting. At first, we really had this huge problem. Since we had the biggest number of group members (which is 6!!), we had the problem in renting the most suitable car that fits us all. Definitely we can afford to rent a normal-size sedan cars like Wira, Myvi and Saga (Kancil and Viva were totally not an option). For heaven sake’s,we need something like MPV or SUV guys~
At last, we managed to find a big car for us to rent. Thanks Allah, we’ve got a Perodua Alza for the day. Credits to Aiman (the second diver) & Shuhada (the MAIN driver). We heading off to Putrajaya after we finished our class at 2 pm.
This time around, we gonna pull it through really hard. We really prepared well. I as the Director cum ‘GPS’ of the day, has make sure everything were well-prepared. The video camera’s battery has fully charged, the scripts were nicely printed, the story board, the crews and last but not least the major elements of the day: Luqman & Qila (our dearest host & hostee)
there’s must be a strong chemistry between you guys~auw
Oh, before I forget, the first place that we shoot the video was at our very own… DECTAR. Yes, its all according to our story board. After having some sort of constructive quarrelsome with Qila, we’ve come up with this brilliant story board. Frankly speaking, it was fun and at the same time challenging working with her. Although we had a few disagreements in certain parts, but we do let ourselves to give it a little wise thought before make it to the final. Qila was tremendously creative in this brainstorming session and the other team mates were also had given their great help in this video making process. I love working with them as we understand each other well and do our assigned tasks well. Let me just show you our video story board. I’ve made colorful so that it will be more interesting to look at and ultimately to follow it rite?
SPAQL’s story board~
It was really hot to hang out outside. We just cannot stand the glaring sun and the powerful heat of the day. We were sweating profusely, especially Lokman (poor you…).
A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows.
err…but the sun really burnt me away~help…umbrella pls…
Although it was really hot, but we determined to finish off the shooting on that day. Lokman & Qila was ready with their lines. Qila looked cute on that day same like yesterday and the day before. Lokman looked a bit anxious, maybe it was his first time to be a host for a video. Its ok Lokman, you gonna kick the show off! Aiman was ready with her videocam. Same with Asri who always carry along the camera to snap some pictures. Shuhada as the driver for the day cum the make-up artist. Then, we started our very first scene against all the heat.
they were practicing really hard to memorize all the correct lines and proper gestures to apply ~
After finished off with the first scene, we just drove straight to the second place which is Masjid Besi. We took some pictures that depicted the magnificent structure one of this ‘rumah Allah’. We were still amazed with the well-built of the masjid although this was the second time we’ve been here.
Subhanallah~what a beauty view
During this scene, both of our host & hos-tee need to repeat their lines as the result was not that we’re expected. Their voices were not loud and clear enough to be put in our video. So, I’ve nicely asked them to to it again and again and again until we all satisfied with the results. Though it was quite frustrating to do it all over again, neither of us felt the burden nor tensed and ironically, we really got ourselves enjoyed in every scenes filming.
We’re discussed and laughed out loud together. This is what people called teamwork, in our case… it was a stupendous team works~
serious time! both me & Qila were discussing about the storyline and all that~
the ‘belaking tabir’ crews standing in front of the Masjid Besi~I wonder where’s Lokman & Qila?
Next stop was Alamanda. It was not for shopping purposes for sure. Hold it back girls~
We had our second lunch at McD. Everyone seems starving and exhausted. I bet, it was not totally because of the video shooting though. It’s because we over laughing when we’re filming scenes at Masjid Besi. Nevermind, we were always like that and that’s why we made a great team mates~
Besides, the videocam’s batteries were worn out. We need to charged them for awhile at the McD during we had our hearty lunch. We did took quite numbers of photos as it was not really accommodating for us to filming since there were huge crowd of people at the mall. Unfortunately, we just unable to insert those pictures in our video since the time limit was 8 min. and the max would be 10 minutes.
After we had our lunch and the batteries were fully charged, we headed off to the Taman Botani. I was quite used with this place as me and my family quite often spending our spare time together here at this park. I used to cycle with my little brother around this wonderful park. That’s why we decided to filming on that. Unluckily, because of the time constraints, we were just too late to rent the bicycle I was totally convinced that we just unable to catch with the time in order for us to filming the cycling session. But, it was all ok. We can always shoot another scenes and took a few momentary pictures right guys?
This Botanical Garden is an awesome recreational park and its one of the must-visit place at Putrajaya. According to the information that we gathered, it was also called ‘ City in the garden’ since it consist of eight major parks in the city. That was really cool! The undeniable greenery scenery and plus with the superb man-made lake were another bonus points for the pleasant and tranquility environment at this park. Definitely, we did enjoyed ourselves to the fullest like always~puft puft~
SMILE everyone!!!! go go go SPAQL!
Then we rushed to the Pullman for the sunset view scenes. Unfortunately, we just err…err… quite late again this time. It’s okeh… nobody can blame the sun for setting a bit too early or a bit too late rite?
Now, the day getting dark. It was Maghrib time already. We need to find a place for us to pray and what was it again guys? Yes! to have our dinner together. So, we just shot to the Taman Warisan. Although I was quite familiar with Putrajaya, but it seems like there were not many makan places here at this city. Taman Warisan would be quite nice to continue shooting the video and at the same time have our dinner also.
After we had our dinner and shoot for several scenes there, we decided to drove back to UKM. It was really tiring day ever, but wait…we still have one last scenes that need to be shoot in front of the our very own Faculty. Yes, Qila & Lokman we still not finished the shooting yet~
Right after the final scene was shot, we bid farewell to each other and drove back to our respective colleges. All I can say, IT WAS REALLY A HECTIC DAY EVER IN MY ENTIRE LIFE~
I can’t even opened my eyes even though I was still in the car. All my body felt like aching and seems like my legs can be tear off at any possible time. Indeed, although maybe it sounds pretty cliche but it was really an exciting and thrilling adventures moment for all of us. We laughed till we cry, we worked till our hands and legs worn out, we spent our money and time like there will be no tomorrow yet THIS WAS REALLY AWESOME JOURNEY guys. I will never be able to forget all of those moments although if I try to, it just because it was really fun and meaningful me. If I may say, THIS WAS A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE and money can’t buy those good time that we had together.
That was the part that I liked the most in surviving through this GE2143 course of Educational Technology. It’s not we can only gain as much knowledge and skills in technology, it was also about making us learn how to become more independent learners through activity like this. What else I can say, U ROCK Edu. Tech!!!~jyeahhhh
p/s: Big credits goes to all of us the SPAQL’s group for our hard work and commitment in order to make a good video later. It was an awesome moments working with all of them. Thanks guys and please give a clap on your back also.
p/ss: I bet our soon-to-make video would be a big hit.ahah.just wait and see~weeeeeeee
That’s it for now.
Opps!!! for this time I would prefer to say…
Adiós por ahora
