Part 3d - My Beloved Country

Based on info from Pasir Gudang Kite Festival, every year, at least 25 country will participate this event. Anyway, i haved learn something about photography. PLAN YOUR SHOOTING BEFORE GOES OUT!.

Kite History
p/s This article to show my respectible to Bro Ambig, who remebering me about the usage of kite.

The exact origin of kiting is unknown to world, but it is believed that kites were flown in China two thousand years ago. Some people believe that a Chinese farmer had tied his hat to a string in order to prevent it from blowing away by strong wind, which was probably the first kite ever flown. Some 200 B.C. when the Chinese General Han Hsin of the Han Dynasty used kite in order to measure the distance that his army has to dig a tunnel so as to reach the city he wanted to attack, and there are written accounts of kite flying by Han. It was one great way to pass the defenses and enter the city, sure enough it was a great formula for victory at that time.

Every country has its own style and purpose of flying kite, in India kiting is a part of a great social festival. People everywhere fly kites from the terrace of their houses; thousands of kites can be seen flying in sky at a time. In India, kiting was famous right from the Mogul period. In Japan, kites were flown to keep evil spirits away and where believed that they bring good luck in production of grain. Kiting is also believed to be one of the hobbies which made many people in Japan go crazy and forget about their work, and so Edo government tried to discourage them from flying kites. Kiting was also used in history for the purpose of theft, one thief used to steal golden statues from a castle.

Kite had played a big role in the Korean revolt in the regime of Silla Dynasty around one thousand and eight hundred years ago. The General of the Army Gim Yu-sin was ordered to attack and diminish the rebels. The troops saw a large shooting star falling from the sky and believed that, if they march to attack rebels the time they were asked to, they will surely lose the battle, and they refused to attack. General of the Army Gim, used a kite, which had a fire ball in it and he flew over the troops, it was believed that if you look at the start which is returning to the heavens, luck will be with you. The troops marched and even defeated the rebels.

FMDC Series - Pasir Gudang Kite Festival 2006 - Part 3b

Part 3b - Human Kite Interaction

When everyone shot our Johore State Sultan, i walk along with intanmaria, and didiz, to take a shot on site. Many people are resting, and some kiters still try to flies their kite. The weather is hot, and no water around us. Gosh, i can get a fever.....

A Story Behind Picture
Pull Off and Try To Resemble
Those guy try to pull the big shiny bear (see my last night submission). Its hard to say, wetther its heavy or not. From my eyes, they must have a good strength, because they must fight the hard wind. Anyway, i look after them, till the bear completely down to earth


Ummm.... same as above, but this pic I like most, with colourful kite. I think it is not heavy like kite before. Only one person pull it.

Bigfoot Kite
Have you heard bigfoot in Johoe forest? This school group from Kota Tinggi take the advantage from that issues to create a good looking bigfoot kite. It can fly, and the kite has won The Best National School Kite On Land and In Air.

Try To Pull
My first impression - This is not a kite. Seem like tubin. I saked him, how much the cost? Woila nearly RM 25000. The 'kite' is special made. It can spinning like gasing, and the effort to make sure, the kite going well is marvellous.

Playin Around

This Filipino, try to make stunt kite, but the skill is great. He try to make the kite as a toy, and make children laughing. Great performance. The kite is well manipulated, come and go from the audience. Such a great moment in Kite Festival.

Crocodile Kiters. This man participate in Rokkaku (Japan Traditional Kite) for his company. You can see, it is easy, but it is hard. This kiters fell down two times, when manipulate the kite.

Try To Resemble

Bigfoot Kite

yanicd > ekekekekek. Tak amik ke gambo bigfoot ni?

intanmaria > Yuppp, itu sudah semestinya!!!!

afiq > Hahahahha. Lain kali org ajak pegi la.

kimi > Pergkhhhh.... lama gila tak pegi

MamaFaMi > Heheheheheheh

r a s s o > Tak sempat nak ambik

Jeff®i @ FM0666 > Ok, saya akan kupas benda nih. Thanks bro

Love is a moment that lasts forever...
