DARI BLOG KE VLOG

Blogging ni dah lama dah sejak tahun 2014 lagi aku dah mula jinak-jinak dengan blog. Mula tu dengan Tumblr tapi tak aktif sangat di situ dan tak tahu pun itu blogging. Kemudian apabila membaca satu post dari rakan sekerja yang terlibat dalam usaha membantu mangsa Tsunami di Pulau Phi Phi pada Disember 2004 baru aku mula serius nak berblog. Mula jinak dengan blogspot. Mula menulis blog bahasa Inggeris iaitu Nasi Lemak Roti Canai Teh Tarik  

This is the first post  iaitu pada 4 April 2006.

Pada  5 Mei 2006 pula lahir blog tentang travel  mykembara. kerana aku banyak travel untuk menjalankan tugas.

Setelah beberapa lama Ummph untuk menulis blog mula menjadi dingin dan posting pun sekali sekala sahaja. Apa lagi bila dah tidak banyak travel maka bahan untuk menulis semakin kurang. Mati idea.

Tiba-tiba sewaktu merayau-rayau kat You Tube dan menonton beberapa You Tubers bervlog, maka timbul pula minat untuk menceburi vblogging pula.

Tak susah sebenarnya sebab cuma tukar medium dari menulis kepada ambil video. So, aku banyak buat pembacaan dalam internet tentang How to vlog dan juga menonton video-video di You Tube How to Start Vlogging.

Dah lama juga ada profile kat You Tube tetapi tidak upload video secara serius pun. Bila timbul keinginan untuk vlogging baru aku ujudkan satu Channel baru atok vlog dan inilah Fish Spa Sungai Luanti .

atokvlogMemang boleh gunakan camera handphone untuk merakam video tapi lebih selesa kalau ata kamera khususnya untuk tujuan vlog ni. Bila guna handphone dah jadi mcm olskol la sebab semua org yang nak merakam video akan guna handphone. Tak salah pun cuma nak satu kelainan je.

So, belilah satu camcorder murah je dari shopee.my. Tak tahulah berapa harga sebenar kerana konon-kononnya potong sampai 80% dari harga asal sampai 3k lebih. Camcorder branded pun tak sampai harga mcm tu kan? But tak kisahlah at least ada gadget untuk rakam video dan ambil foto sekali. Handphone jadikan sebagai backup saja. Nak tahu camcorder murah apa yang aku pakai rakam video untuk vlog kenalah pergi ke vlog aku hehehe. Subscribe lah, Then Like dan kalau nak share pun go ahead. Tengok sampai habis tau sb semua video vlog aku ada camera credit. So kat situ bolehlah nilai quality hasil rakaman yang aku tak banyak setting, just basic setting dan auto white balance.

Off Road Adventure @ Raub

I join the media group to Raub for the Cuti Cuti 1 Malaysia Sunday Bike Ride with Minister of Tourism on Sunday 8th July 2012. This activity is a monthly program initiated by Ministry of Tourism not only to promote the healthy lifestyle but as a tourism product too. I will post more of this on my BLOG.

Our journey starts on 7th July when we met in front of PWTC before moving on to Raub in two vehicles, a van and an MPV. Our entourage  consists of media personnels from the local newspaper bloggers and freelance writers comprising of 20 people.

Stop at BHP on Karak Highway at 9.30 to see that the petrol station is quite busy with a group of big bikers make a pit stop before continuing their weekend bike ride. At first is was the intention to have breakfast but due to time constrain it was packed and we ate them along the way while moving. We reach Bentong at about 10.25 A.M and stop again at Warung Nur for refreshment at a  stall before entering Bentong Town. While enjoying our breakfast, the biker group that stop at BHP station before, also stop to regroup thenselves not far from us.

Reached Sungai Klau at 12.10 and met our eco-adventure tour operator at Pasar Pagi Sungai Ruan. We will be going for our eco adventure to Lata Berembun a waterfall located about 15 kilometres into the hilly terrains and only accessible on 4WD. It was my first experience to be in this Off road adventure. Frankly when I received the travel itenary, and saw the program to Lata Berembun on 4WD, I thought it was just another ordinary travel on laterite road maybe, and least expected it was a Camel Trophy type journey. BTW the way the degree of challenge might be just about 20% of Camel Trophy. I just presume.Image

Before moving, our tour operator from Countryview Recreation Park Jeram Besu , Mrs Elly Yong, briefed us on safety measures and what to expect along the journey. We took off in four 4WD Jeeps along Jalan Sungai Chalit, the first few kilometres on surfaced road passing through small pantations and oil palm plantations. Just after the oil palm plantation, the road gets rougher and terrain gets more undulating.

There are three different phases of road that we face, the leisure drive phase, medium to mid range challenge and finally the “hardcore”. The driver of the jeep I am on, told us to brace ourselves, me, a blogger, a reporter and two photographer from Utusan and NST. He told us, “Ini kita mau naik, 4WD panggil hardcore punya.” (we re going to go through the hardcore phase). He really meant it. The track was made out of deep trenches, muddy and slippery. The gradient is about 35-45 degrees and one of the jeep in our group was stuck and had to be towed up. More PHOTO here and HERE.

It was a very good experience for me to feel it in real life, the Off Road 4WD adventure. It was just an imagination to do it when this adventure was made popular by Camel Trophy shown over TV years back.

The journey was a “treacherous” one at least for my experience, who had never done this before. But that does not deter me from joining such adventure again in future. That Lata Berembun outing is my first lesson to Off Road 4WD eco-adventure and in future I will be more mentally prepared. You have to feel it to know what Off road adventure really is.

When we arrive at Lata Berembun we saw groups of 4WD wheelers camped within the vicinity of the waterfall.

Vehicles are not allowed to drive up to the fringe of the waterfall and we have to walk up for about 5 minutes. The lush green Tropical Rainforest is so refreshing and you can feel the fresh air. The “ice” cool water is so tempting that one will regret if do not take a dip in it.

At 4.30 P.M we reached Hotel Jelai where our group will be staying overnight before the program on Sunday. We freshen up before leaving for Temerloh for another event by Tourism Malaysia, the launching of the Seminar Transformasi Homestay Malaysia 2012 by Tourism Malaysia Chief Director, Y.Bhg. Dato’ Mirza Mohammad Taiyab Beg, at Desa Murni Homestay, Temerloh
