Treasures of The Rainforests

Recently I received an email about this photography workshop and challenge which will be held in Kuching, Sarawak, this 12th - 15th June. Well, I do hope I can join, but, too bad it is quite far away and the entrance fee is quite expensive for a student here. Besides that, I might be going for an overseas internship this May and June too. So, basically I can say that I am unable to join. But, I would like to share this with all of you, especially those who are staying at Kuching(save air tickets), for example QiChee! Haha..

Have a look!
