Nikon Kuching GT

Nikon organised another 'Get-together' event yesterday to encourage photographers to take photos around Sarawak and submit them for the 'Colours of Sarawak' photo contest co-organised by Starbucks. I was registered for the event together with one of my colleagues and we walked around some parts of Kuching city to hunt for photographs that suit the theme.

The orang utan murals drawn by the Lithuania-born artist Ernest Zacharevic have been around quite some time but it was my first visit yesterday. Therefore, I got the help from my colleague Charles Bong to get me into the pictures.

Schönbrunn Palace

The baroque-style Schönbrunn Palace (Schloss Schönbrunn) is a World Cultural Heritage site for its splendidly furnished royal residence and ceremonial rooms. It was the Habsburg's summer palace with 1,440 rooms. It works out to be exactly 24 hours if one were to visit every room for a duration of 1 minute.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is somehow associated with the palace which is sometimes regarded as a mini-Versailles. The association is being debuted his royal concert in the Mirror Room at the age of six.

The rear side of the palace ground are gardens, a zoo, a greenhouse, a maze and a swimming complex. The Gloriette Monument sits on top of the hill at the extreme rear end of the palace ground. It offers a spectacular view over the palace ground from its roof.
