This blog evolved from my personal rambling, to my addiction to GPS and Digital Mapping, to Digital SLR camera and photography in general. Over time this blog focuses more about bird and nature.
I love nature and bird photography when I have a free time or on holiday. Mostly birding around my backyard, around Raub, Fraser’s Hill and Bukit Tinggi. Rarely venture outside my own state – Pahang.
Birding and photographing are my passion, but so far never earn a single cent out of this hobby.
If you like my photograph and wish to post it on your blog for non-profit or education, just email me. Most of the time, I will give it free of charge.
My photography gear is very basic old system: Body dSLR Canon EOS 50D and 5D mark iv 400mm f5.6 prime lens, Tamron 1.4x teleconverter -with 3pins taped.
To support the above setup, I use the tripod /support system : Gitzo 3530LS Carbon-fiber with Gimbal head Jobu Jr. 2 – L Bracket. For dark subject under canopy, Canon flash 580 EX couple with F1 bracket and better beamers help a lot.
I wish to retire early for this and buy a big 800mm bazooka lens.he..he! Finance Minister (aka the other half) will not approve it, until all my children complete their education.
Another passion or hobby is cycling . If the road is dry, I will cycle for at least 10km or 30 minutes every morning. Still not strong and my base training is very limited. The longest distance covered so for being the only 105km round trip from Raub ->Felda Sg. Koyan ->Raub. My next plan is to ride a Century (100 miles or 160km). Need to train hard to achieve that. Time is a problem, and with work commitment I wonder when I can do that.
To support the above hobbies, I work as a General Practitioner running my clinic at Raub, under the name of KLINIK SULAIMAN (RAUB). Doctor mean Tabeeb in Arabic / Turkish, hence my nickname here.
Why Klinik Sulaiman and not my name or other name?. That’s a long story! 😉
