When was the last time you visited a funfair?
For me, it was more than a decade ago. The last one I went was held opposite Subang Parade at the used car area (once upon a time if I’m not mistaken).
However two weeks ago while I was having dinner at Bukit Tinggi, we saw a funfair held in the compound of Giant Hypermarket. What else? We had a go at it. No rides for me as I was REALLY full that night. I had a go at the games area though but all I win was a mini pink cow toy (come with suction to hang in the car).
Hehe better than nothing right?
I knew I had to come back again because this place is ideal to practice my night photography especially shutter priority mode, one which I rarely use. So I went back again last Friday (Wesak day). Had a hell of a time adjusting shutter speed. But then I ended up using manual mode for the 2nd half of the session as the shutter priority mode couldn’t produced what I wanted. This is my first time adjusting ISO, shutter speed and aperture all at one go with limited amount of time. Woah really interesting but my right hand ended up aching a bit after that. Haha
Nevertheless well worth lesson!
Hope you enjoy the photos I took at Happy Fun Park.
All photos were taken with my D80’s kit lens 18-135mm/3.5-5.5G.
Here are some of the funfair stalls…
That’s all from Happy Fun Park. Do go there this weekend if you wanna have a funfair ‘feel’ and be kids again. Not sure how long they will be there. I didn’t see any notice.
p/s: Another one of my childhood dream fulfilled. Been dreaming of visiting a ‘local’ funfair for so long liao.
