It was my good and bad day. I had to photograph the event for my company even though I got flu. We don’t have F1 in Sabah but we have our second F2 powerboat race at Waterfront of Sabah. The best thing was we didn’t need to buy any ticket to see the world cup. The day was so hot that I almost got stroke and forgot my name.

Anyway, I still enjoyed the show. It took only about 30 minutes for the powerboats completed 35 laps on the sea. There were more than 10 powerboats competing and below are some photos of them.

There was a prize presentation and farewell dinner in Le-Meridien Hotel later that day. I have included them in the photo album. I lost my tripod in the hotel coz I left it in the ballroom after the event. I checked with the hotel next day but it could not be found anymore. So unhappy though it is only a cheap tripod. I suspect it was stolen by the someone there, but I don’t have the proof. Just be careful with your belonging lah if you go to any function in that so called 5-star hotel.

    Hi again! MySabah, Just call u like that? My guess you are a full time photo-journalist? And u should be getting good $$$ for all your hard work!

  • MySabah.com

    i wish what u say is true, but there is no such thing as well-paid full-time photo-journalist in Sabah though..

    wedding photographers can make much more.

    Is this a yearly event? and if so when is the next round?

  • Hi LHS, they don’t have F2000 race here for a few years already. I think they have moved the venue.
