Every flatland rider in Southeast Asia or even around the world knows about Groundforce and the BMX Flatland World Circuit headed by Yasuyuki Takeo. It’s been almost 4 years since the last (Moto) Groundforce – it was one of the best experience I had. Meeting with other riders I only see on magazines and videos. Seeing them in person is like a shock to me – in a good way. I become more motivated in riding. And I did ride harder after a long time of no riding (almost 3 years from 2002-2005) ’cause I was busy pursuing my career in multimedia design. I can still remember the last Groundforce and it was indeed a wondrous day. I was using a Fujifilm 602Z Pro bridge camera and it was may precious possession that time (and an Aresbykes Dita frame). Without the 602Z I wouldn’t be able to learn the things I know today in photography.
SP Jain Center of Management (Singapore) conducted an event with Dynamic Africa where ambassadors (from Africa) presented the business possibilities on Africa for foreign investors also to encourage more tourist to go there and experience the true essence of Africa. There were some live performances, fashion show presenting the different African inspired attires, skits telling about life in Africa, monologues, song and dance numbers all African inspired. As a photo assignment for an ex-deal I was suppose to just click my shutter and mind my own business but I ended up learning a lot of things and meeting interesting personalities from this event. After the program we went to the banquet hall and feast on an authentic African buffet. It was a nice experience. Africa is a humble nation (continent) but proud of it’s culture and heritage. Rich in natural resources and lovely people. I was touched how cheerful, simple and warm Africans are. I wish to go to Africa someday. Others believe life began in Africa – the true paradise on earth.

With 1.0 billion people (as of 2009, see table) in 61 territories, it accounts for about 14.72% of the world’s human population. Continue reading
