New Year -We Have Moved To A New BLOG Address

new blog main page
We! Have Moved Already......... 

Please! add the new blog to your book marks...
links below, many thanks. john

Using Blogger's server for many years has been truly wonderful, however we are now bursting at the seams and the only options is to pay them to host or move to another server, so I can give you the best of photographs in the blog.

At the moment its ok because I deleted a lot of the old stuff but this is not fair on new readers wanting to look at the early days as the blog photos will be missing. 

So I made the decision to move it all over to my own server at fastlinxs.com that way I can allocate as much space as i need to host the blog on thus giving me plenty of space to give you a wonderful blog read for the future....

I do hope you will change your bookmarks to

Silky Fountain Water

This was what I meant for the silky fountain water, by adjusting and playing with the shutter speed.

Photo 1: There are water bubbles and the water is frozen by using higher shutter speed


Photo 2: Reduced water bubbles with a smoother water flow by slowing the shutter speed


Photo 3: No water bubbles and the water looks silky smooth


Photo 4: Isn't this more eye pleasing than Photo 1 with all those bubbles?

Macro shots of my Jasmines

The jasmines at my garden have blossomed and they are smelling absolutely amazing. I have 4 big jasmine plants and they are very easy to be taken care of. Tried some macro shots on my 650D and I'm totally chuffed with its results.






Tried to create a silky water effect on my fountain and I think it worked

End Of The World But I'm Off Christmas Shopping.....

Ha ha so much on line and TV about today's end of the world, I know predictions do come true but wow this is a big prediction. And the way I look at it is if it happens it happens.

As a young boy my father told me "In life son, if it's out of your control, then do not worry about it".

Of course I never really knew what he was on about back then but in my life I came to realise he was a smart guy and he saved me so much stress.

Example: You do your exams, and of course you done the best that you could and it's now out of your control so do not worry about it. Now hands up how many know someone right now who done his/her exams but just will not stop going on about it, worrying about the result.

So as the end of the world is out of my control I am off doing what I love to do best SHOPPING Yeah!!.

OK so its the 21st already and i bet many are thinking wow he leaving it a bit late and your are right, why because nearer the date things get reduced in price. Now I am not a cheapskate but what it means is, I can get a better present for the allocated budget I set for each person.

That's got to be Good Right!

For instance yesterday while out shopping I noticed in Metrojaya that a lot of the expensive Christmas decorations were marked down by 50% now you just got to have some of that. because we all know it will soon be Christmas 2013 and I know i will have all my decoration already in stock.

Today is presents day so I am off to bukit indah Jusco to eat shop eat shop in that order.

BYE for nowwwwwww.

Let me introduce you to Dinky my 8 week old Lovebird for Sale.

Lovebird hand reared in JBHi Folks

This is Dinky my little Lovebird, She is full of charm and very affectionate and for only 8 weeks she has already got the most lovable personality i have seen in all the lovebirds i have had over the years.

As you will also see from the photos she is very tame and love to be out of cage with her human companions.

Sadly as I live in a condo I can not have to many birds (noise levels) and so She is up for sale. RM450 But Please Remember: Pets are not just for Christmas.

Dinky was hand raised by myself from 1 day old, as Dawn the mother was new to this and really did not know how to care for the babies.

So I took on the role and fed her every three hours for four week then every 5 hours till she was weaned and now she feeds herself and has grown so nice with her colours coming out each day.

I was worried at first because her beak was fully black but has now turned orange which i really like.

Did you know that Lovebirds can live up to 15 years (human age) so they are  truly a family pet that will grow up with your children and bring you many hours of fun and excitement.

 if you would like more information please email me at johnatfastlinxsdotcom. (letters in red, change to the correct @ and .) writting it like this helps me from getting lots of spam..





Final of the Voice is TONIGHT...




I have really enjoyed the show this season and while I like the finalist, I Still think Amanda was the Best and should not have been voted out.

But the public voted so who can argue with that.

and so looking at the way they have been voting, to me it looks like the country singer will Win.

Who do you think will win?

Weekend Trip in the Rain.

Decided to have a run out over the weekend and just as wee set out in the bright sunshine it started to cloud over and by the time we got to our first destination Pontian  it was very heavy rain.

But the good thing about Malaysia is that the rain is not cold and freezing like in the UK so one can still enjoy the day out.

we called into a Heng Heng 兴兴 restaurant in Pontian, Johor, Malaysia and was pleased with the results and so was the many people that was part taking in this wonderful dish famous in Pontian.

after a full tummy we headed over to Kukup We was going to the houses on stilts but as the weather was so bad we decided on the golf resort.

the resort was not to far and only took 15 mins so after checking out the place we headed back to JB,

The idea was to enjoy the facilities but as it was raining hard decided enough was enough and headed home to watch a movie and have some fruits.

below some pictures I took while out and about.
