Catherine Elizabeth Middleton was born at Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading on 9 January 1982. She is the eldest of three children born to Carole (née Goldsmith), a former flight attendant, and Michael Middleton, who also worked as a flight attendant prior to becoming a flight dispatcher for British Airways.
Catherine grew up in Chapel Row, a village near Newbury, Berkshire, England. She studied art history in Scotland at the University of St Andrews, where she met William in 2001.
The royal couple and baby Prince George will spend nine days in the country. Such an honor to see them in person. What an experience for us as Malaysian. Once in a lifetime!

Sekali seumur hidup… Seawal pukul 8.30pagi kami menanti kehadiran Prince William dan Kate Middleton.. Bersesak-sesak orang utk melihat mereka, kami di tolak, dihimpit (Walaupun kami dibarisan paling hadapan dan dtg seawal pukul 8:30pagi) tp kerana kegairahan mereka, kami terpaksa melaluinya…Akhirnya tepat jam 11:45pagi, selepas hampir 4 jam menunggu, akhirnya meraka berjalan masuk le Latimer Square… Kami bukan lah photographer professional..tapi kami cuba yang terbaik utk ambil beberapa gambar ‘clean shot’ utk kenang-kenangan..
Kami berkongsi sedikit pengalaman kami melalui gambar….
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.

Taiaroa Head is named after the leader of the Ngai Tahu Maori tribe, Te Matenga Taiaroa. Taiaroa fought along with his warriors to prevent Te Rauparaha and Ngati Toa from conquering the South Island in the 1830′s. In 1844, Taiaroa with other Ngai Tahu leaders sold the Otago land block to the New Zealand Company.
It was not uncommon during the 1840′s & 50′s for ships to spend days searching for the harbor entrance, so a flagstaff was erected at Taiaroa Head in 1849. In 1850 a light was added to the flagstaff, however it was hardly lit by the chief pilot as the Government refused to pay for the oil to run it.
“Kabin Kuning” sesuatu yg menarik perhatian aku ketika melintasi rumah kuning ini… begitu tenang dan indah…Jauh perjalanan luas pemandangan..
Lokasi, lokasi, lokasi….perjalanan adalah tentang lokasi.

Ps: A few people has commented this photo is defies the “Rule of Thirds”, I agree with them. I took a few shots of the yellow hut, but I choose this picture because I want to enhance the view of the harbour from Otago Peninsular. Yerp photography is Subjective… And the picture here is from my POV.. ;))
