Congratulations to CL who went home with a brand new Nokia mobile phone. Courtesy of HSBC, no bull! I thought I wasn’t going to make it to the event considering my wife and I got caught in Sungai Liang jam where only recently friends had been stuck there for two hours. But we made it eventually and so did many other HSBC clients from the Belait district. An auspicious evening to the lucky winners big and small. It had been a slight struggle whether I was going to bring my 5DII to the event and knowing very well that if I hadn’t, those few hours sitting at the table would have certainly been agonizing—really—this rooster cannot sit still besides an opportunity to see how well the 5DII handled the mixed lighting. All images captured with the EF 70-200mm f/2.8 between ISO 3200 and 5000 in ambient lighting.
Someone at the dinner said you could tell right away from looking at the silhouette that it’s Tareq. I should also mention that this someone is a HSBC employee so I guess that explains it but I agree. The CEO does have an identifiable silhouette.
