• Charming town, some chose to screw you

    Love visiting older towns, simply of the old charms which we do not find in the newly developed cities. Whenever we can, we will make some time to explore places in places we visit. Jalan Dolby, Johor Bahru is quite a charming town. It is really close to the Johor-Singapore causeway, so you can expect many Singaporeans here. We parked our car nearby most of the banks and walked about. Searching for something to eat, since dinner was still some time away. Retna suggested we go to Hua Mui, supposedly famous for western food and Hainan cuisine. There is nothing much to share here, since the food was flat normal.…

  • Brave Tiny Dancer ~ How We Each Other Together (at times)

    There have been far too many times we seen and witnessed how 1 person holds everyone together. Sometimes, we assumed that family holds one another together, strong. However, that is not often the case. Recently we seen the cracks in certain relationship, which have been great for longest time. Just like Trump and Kim Jung Un. Sometimes, we tolerate people for their shortfalls, shortcomings. We tolerated because of love. However, love does not last forever. It could slowly disappear. Whoever you are, you know I am or may be speaking about you. Life is short, I chose to live happily, than the opposite. We will continue to teach our kids…

  • Shadows

    I promise you… for all my life. I’ll be always by your side, In the shadow, in the light. I’ll follow you… wherever life goes. But I’ll always be aside, In the shadow, in the light. In The Shadows, In The Lights by Enigma Last few pictures I have taken while at Tunku Abdul Rahman University College during the Kaspersky Lab’s Malaysian Book of Records event held on Tuesday, were simply stunning with the sun ray shining of the students waiting for the transit bus. I missed the life as students, I remember the time I spent waiting in line for buses, or simply walked from places to places, so…

  • Easy, Take It Easy

    I spent the Easter Sunday with the twins in Port Dickson, witnessing some breathtaking sunset in the evening before I began my journey back to the sub-urban, urban life. Since I have purchased the Leica, I love to start walking in the areas I will be at.  I spent time in Hong Kong streets, Bali tourists as well as non-tourist spots, the beautiful Rome streets, and breathtaking Vatican City, Sydney and the Blue Mountain, Jakarta streets, and Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka streets, shrines, temples, people on the streets, and I guess the journey to photograph the great things will continue.  I especially love taking pictures in places like Kampar, Slim…

  • Night, Puchong

    After dinner, while waiting for Inez from her ballet class, I walked about, with my Leica.  Just to put what I have learn from sifus such as Mathias Heng, Fulvio Bugani and Izwan Ismail into practice. I have taken pictures of the same place before, but that time I was experimenting the Leica. This time, I came with some ideas of what I wanted to capture.  Love the results. I edited the pictures a bit using the Lightroom on my iPad Pro. I think it is great to view Puchong at night, from different perspective. When it comes to Puchong, often many would think of it as messy, jam, food…

  • Stealing Technique.

    I have the Leica D-LUX for more than 1 year now.  When I look at the pictures I have taken when we first got the camera, maybe not use to the feature, capabilities etc, so most pictures I have take may not be nice, at all. Thanks to the few photowalks and lessons I attended organised by media as well as Leica team in Malaysia, I gained some new insights into how to take story telling pictures. There were times when I traveled for work, I could stop myself from walking out from the lunch break with clients to have some time to snap pictures of the places and people.…

  • Day Trip. Ipoh.

    The trip was short, less than 5 hours in Ipoh, and we were out. We were there for Ayam Brand. During lunch, I walked about the area where we were at, Jalan Sambanthan, kind of historic. I was mistaken as Korean and then Japanese during the walk about. The owners of the shops were happy to see me.  Perhaps I was holding a camera. I spoke to some, but some I did not. I spoken to the kids of the homes participated in Ayam Brand campaign, asked about whether I could take pictures of them, they agreed. All pictures taken on LEICA, with manual mode.

  • So I was at Thistle.

    Have been passing by Thistle several times, as and when we were in Johor Bahru, staying here, was my first. So I decided to give it a try. The front desk was not very welcoming, just 1 personnel at any one time.  Or at least when I was there, I approached the front desk for things such as where to for meals, drinks, fitness centre etc.  I needed to wait a while before attended, or I simply walked away, explore the place myself. Room layout is nice, I like the way how the door is at an angle so to provide great amount of privacy to the guests who stay…
