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.
With beautiful rainbow gondolas!
Love this angle with the light flare.
This is what it looks like when I turn the shutter speed faster.
Kamikaze @ Skymaster.
This is one hell of a ride! Full force swinging and 360 degree turn. *me pengsan
Once there was this mother praying with her hands wide open (Islam) while the Skymaster tortured her teenage kids.
Paratrooper @ Umbrella Ride. No idea how this thing goes. Beware… deng deng deng
It opens up and become like this at full force… just like a spinning umbrella. Haha
Sure pening weh.
Bumper Car @ Dodgems! Oh I so wanna ride this.
Where should I focus actually? The background so that the cars are blurry?
Balloon Wheel @ Ferris Wheel.
This is the smaller version compared to the one I took ‘way’ above this post.
Space Car for the kids.
Hey girls, WATCH where you’re going!!!
Don’t ‘kap’ leng chais wei. Hahaha
Here are some of the funfair stalls…
Realized we were scammed half way playing this game because no matter how you add up you will get low points. Low points = small prize. Cilaka!
Clockwise from left: dart game, ring toss game, duck pond game & balloon and dart game
Played the Ring Toss game. Bragged how good my aiming is (prior) but emerged as the red face gal! Hahaha
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.
