TKL Airsoft In Himmappan Forest

My first Airsoft MILSIM since 2016, second game in Thailand, and with almost 300 players, this is the biggest event I’ve been to so far.

Organizers at TKL Airsoft have been planning this for months, and it showed. Game was from late morning to night, with balanced emphasis on fire fights, importance of supplies and accomplishing mission objectives.

The entire game narrative was loosely based on a true event that happened right here in this place (Himmappan Forest) where the Thai Army fought the Communist Party of Thailand (CPT).

Of course, as you can see in the photos, the players from each faction wore “loosely based” (camo for Thai Army and Foreign Volunteers, black and plain color for CPT)

The other thing that caught my attention was the WW2 reenactor scene is really strong in Thailand. Just wow!

And they have an impressive range of Airsoft guns too.

Hope to bring more Malaysians with me next round. There were 5 of us (incidentally, all from Johor… hence LUASKAN KUASAMU) but the more, the merrier.

Will definitely want to come back again!

Exploring Johor Bahru City Center

A long time Internet marketing student and friend, Abdullah Bamatraf, is in town!

We drove to several places in Johor Bahru city center for sight seeing – from TMIYC to Puteri Harbour, the entrance of the Sultan’s palace, and the streets of City Square.

Even though I had moved to JB for the first time in 2003, I didn’t really explore because I didn’t have my own car and Johor was nothing like what it is today.

Amazing to see a lot of progress and development in the past decade, Johor can give KL a run for its money!

ToonMe And NewProfilePic

I had a field day using both these apps, ToonMe and NewProfilePic, to render my photos into something reminiscence of an 80s movie poster.

I’m usually not into these image editing and enhancing apps, but it looks like the quality has been upped a notch or two in recent years!

These apps can also be used from desktop computers, and they’re free to use. I think you’ll enjoy using them, because I sure did!
