CAL Sunset Shoot at Putrajaya


On last Friday, 25/12/09, a group of alpharians head down to Putrajaya to do a sunset shoot there. Although the weather seems to be okay around 4.00pm, a sudden change where heavy downpour struck and we were forced to camped at a mamak stall in Precinct 9. Hoping the downpour won't last long, the rain stopped around 6.30pm and we have the chance to rush back to the Putrajaya Mosque to capture the sunset. Although it was not much to shoot after the rain, it was a great outing.

Some shots from the sunset shoot taken that day.

Bukit Tabur Sunrise Shoot


Last Friday, 18/12/2009, a group of C.A.L members planned another shooting of Bukit Tabur during sunrise. So, on 5.50am, we started our journey to climb Bukit Tabur in order to reach the top by and shoot the sunrise. Unfortunately, the weather that morning were not very impressive as it was humid and foggy. But that doesn't dampened the spirits as we managed to capture some good shots that morning. Around 8.45am, we packed our things and went to mamak for breakfast.

Here are the group shot before we left Bukit Tabur.

During the meeting, we have appointed Mr. pangaitpangait, who has really done a good job in preparing the checklist for the outing. Mr. pangaitpangait will be assisted by two other fellow alpharians, imzar69 and feruztopia (hope it's ok with you guys)

12.12.09 - The second reception of our great friend and merchant we held at his parents home in Gombak. Since not many were able to attend the reception in Jerantut, however, for this reception, quite a number of alpharians turned out. As usual, here is the group photo captured with the newlyweds..

Credits to O.P (Abam Zahack for the shot) Congratulations to the newlyweds from all of us at C.A.L..

C.A.L Official T-Shirt


During the first meeting held for C.A.L, we have discussed and plan to have our own t-shirt. This is exclusively for C.A.L members who have registered their details. The plan to make the shirt has been voiced out not once, but a few times even before C.A.L or alphanatics were born but ideas are just ideas and it stops there. This time, we have made it possible. As the process of designing, looking for the supplier and shops to do the shirt, the outcome turned out great. It's good to have our own shirt, not to show off but to present the community to the world (hopes too high ya??).

Many thanks to pikiez for a great design that everybody likes. Many thanks to pangaitpangait for helping out to find the shop at Central Market and thanks to all the members for your patience and support.

Some sample shots of C.A.L T-shirt.

CAL Model Outdoor Shoot


The first official outing for CAL were held on 31st October 2009. The chosen location for the shoot is Taman Tasik Perdana. Around 30 CAL members took part for this first event and 3 models were available (suppose to be 10..). Even though the downpour since early morning, it doesn't stop us from keep on with the programs. So here are some of the shots taken from that outing. Congratulations to din210 for producing the best shot that day.
