It was a fun-filled photoshoot

It was MIB's first ever photoshoot at the world-famous Batu Caves, but I was a little skeptical at first. I do not own a DSLR, and I am not a pro at taking photos. Truth is I suck most of the time when it comes to photography *shy. I least expected for it to be this F.U.N!!!!!  Supposedly we have 11 confirmed guests sayings YES to the event but 7 turned up. A bit disappointing there but we were at ease with each other, though some never met others before. Yet, at the end of that 6 hours, I felt like we have known each other for a long time.

I was a bit [60mins] late *looks around for Rames.. hehehe.. guess by the time we [Mala & me] reach there, Rames has gone next thing we did was to hunt for food and it was not so difficult - there were couple of restaurants within the vicinity. Had a quick breakfast and long chat with Poobalan [who was there earlier than me :P]. Selian joined us few minutes after, followed up Raaja and Sundra.

Some photos..

So many of them in Batu Caves. Sometimes they were funny to watch, sometimes it freaked me out.

Everyone took at least 10 shots of this gigantic structure at the base of Batu Caves.
