Video: Goodbye Perth, Hello Malaysia.

Goodbye Perth, Hello Malaysia - Video of Swifty's last day in Perth

I've mentioned before that I was stuck with limited Internet access back in Perth. Basically, I was using the Internet system in my university as I was staying in the student village, and I had to pay for my internet fees based on the bandwidth I was using, for example, 10MB will cost around 50 cents, thus making it impossible for me to actually upload or download any videos and music, hell I even had to disable the images in my browser just so that I don't have to spend that much a day for my surfing. Yeah, It was THAT bad.

Anyway, I've whipped together another video to share with you all today (I'll be doing that pretty regularly from now on since, well, I am the very first Malaysian listed at the Vlog Community, I'm definitely going to make up for the lack of videoblogging I've done in the past few months I was in Perth.

But anyway, this video of mine is shot during my very last day in Perth (5th of December, 2006), just a short and simple video of my dad and I driving to the Perth International Airport, and this video is my farewell to Perth, my home for the past two and a half years. Less of the flashy stuff I usually had on my videos, more focus on the introspective mood and the atmosphere I had back then.

The program I used to edit this is the Adobe Premiere Pro 2 (I also use it to edit my last two short films), unfortunately, without the facilities I had in university, the quality of the video capture's pretty bad (it's fuzzier and lower definition compared to what I would get if I were using those editing studios in uni).

Music I use for this is 'Away' by Adrianna Krikl, whose other work I had used for the opening of my last short film, Girl Disconnected.

It's a pretty personal video.


  1. I don't think I've ever wanted to go somewhere overseas for a while until now.

  2. Wow, my video was that life-altering huh?

  3. Very dreamy feel, I like it.

    I would love to see more of Malaysia.

    I would also like a free ticket to Malaysia as well, but I know that is a whole nother story.

  4. Thanks! Schlomo!

    The first, I can easily arrange. The second, in the words of Borat... not so much.

  5. Welcome home & thanks for sharing that bittersweet leaving. Look forward to seeing more of your country and you in the future.

  6. Thank you, Jan.

    I hope my next videos won't disappoint. :)
