Miss Tourism City Tour & X’mas Open House

On 27th December, Miss Tourism International 2008 finalist were having a tour throughout the historic city of Melaka. Starting from all the historical place at Banda Hilir such as A Famosa, Stadhuys, Memorial of Independence, Melaka Sultanate Palace and dine Melaka traditional food. They were all lovely and friendly. But don’t be hurt if they don’t eat what you have served to them because you know, their body is their important asset in this career and final is around the corner.

Even all of them are more than 170cm tall average, actually they are all younger than me! hahaha. Malaysian should consider a new diet to be taller in the future not just to compete in Miss World pageant but more height will be useful if Malaysian want to get gold medal in Olympics. After their last appearance at Portuguese Settlement for the X’mas open house invitation, they were going straight back to their main venue for Miss Tourism International 2008 at Sunway Pyramid.

X’mas open house that night attracted about 30,000 multi-racial visitors but the police has manage the traffic well. Special guest, Malaysia Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi with wife Datin Seri Jeanne Abdullah were present to officiate the ceremony. Not much picture I can take that night because don’t have a pass. Here some selected pic on 27th..!

  1. Thanks for the coverage of the Miss Tourism and other pageants. It is so hard to find any photos of this pageant on the Net.

    Your Sony DSC-T2 is a good camera based on the photos here. As for any compact camera, it performs well outdoor during the day. However, indoor or outdoor at night, any compact camera will not be good enough.

    The photos at night are blurred due to subject motion. You must be using night scene mode which allows shutter speed as slow as 1/4 sec (depending on camera). So, although the camera has an optical image stabilizer, it cannot stop subject moment. If the subject is not still (e.g. not posing for the camera), you must used full auto (Green Box) or program mode (P) with flash, that way the shutter speed will be faster at 1/60 (depending on camera). The background will be darker but the subjects remain sharp. However, do note that your DSC-T2 effective flash range is 3.2m.

    Finally, please visit my website for some photos of the Miss Tourism International 2008 pageant.

  2. Hi Donny,

    I don’t know about my DSC-T2 is very good but it is small, have internal big space and I can take good video from it. Thanx about the brief tutorial, although it is brief I will take time to digesting it for the term like speed 1/60 and flash range is 3.2m…what is that? Well will find it at google. Have visited your website..hmm they look more beautiful in picture taken by you. This make me think about new camera…
