When emergencies hit — they hurt children most. This is especially true in the Philippines with super typhoon Haiyan. Early reports indicate hundreds dead while UNICEF estimates that up to 4 million children could now be affected by the disaster.

It is this year’s most powerful tropical storm and is also the latest natural disaster to strike a country already reeling from monsoon flooding and a massive earthquake that struck in October.

UNICEF, with humanitarian partners, has deployed assessment teams to support the government to respond to this latest disaster. We are rushing emergency life-saving supplies such as therapeutic food for children, health kits, water and hygiene kits to the affected areas.

We urgently appeal for your help so that we can respond to the needs of the children and families most affected by this latest calamity.

Celebrating Joern & Wilking

celebrating Joern & Wilking, and cute little Xerxes

Right, more than a year since I last blogged about weddings. It’s time to catch up with some writings and really get some stories going now!

Great love story starting with Joern and Wilking’s, who got married few months back. Both Brendon and I were glad to photograph their wedding held in Melaka.

Both of them have a special and beautiful names. When I met Joern and Wilking before their wedding, I was introduced to their cute little one year-old son, Xerxes. First thing which came into my mind of the name Xerces was the Persian King from the film ‘300’, and I was right. Wilking named his name after the great king of Persian and hoping his son to be someone great and mighty.

In the morning of their big day, I photographed at Joern’s place during her make-up while Brendon covering groom’s preparation. There were many vintage Oriental prints on Joern’s wall, that tells why Joern was wearing traditional Chinese gown instead of white gown. Qiao-Yi from M Nicole Make Up did a great job making the bride just looked gorgeous.

When Wilking arrived at the bride’s place, gate crush game commenced with yoga on foot massage stones, team-walking on chairs, treasure hunt in flour, and the most disgusting one, biting the ice-cream made of wasabi, insect herbs, vinegar and many secret ingredients in order to get the right key hid in the ice-cream for opening the house door.

After vowing and pleasing the beautiful bride, Wilking finally got to take his wife and offered tea to their parents and elders from the family.

Joern and Wilking’s evening reception at Lu Yeh Yen Restaurant was one of the largest receptions we photographed. Over 800 of guests attended the evening reception.

It was also our first time working with JC Studio videography team from KL and it was so great working with them, such a professional and humble videography team, and I would recommend them for wedding videography. Feel free to drop by their FB page (https://www.facebook.com/jcstudio.my).

Thanks again to Joern and Wilking for trusting in us, and congratulation! Wishing them lots of wonderful moments of togetherness now and always, and a lifetime of happiness.

May all beings bEE happy.

<简单玩 。玩简单 Just Play> in Melaka at Voyage Travellers Lounge

<简单玩 。玩简单 Just Play> in Melaka at Voyage Travellers Lounge

Went to a very nice music concert <简单玩 。玩简单 Just Play> featuring Ika & Aki Huang, Platform 11, Tangerine Wong and Anna Chong, happened to be in Melaka at Voyage Travellers Lounge early this month.

Simple setup in the lounge which closed for business. Instead of sitting on chairs or standing, tables and chairs were removed from the lounge and guests were encouraged to wear casually, especially with shorts, any kind of shorts as theme, and sitting on the floor.

So before the show started, 988’s DJ, PM shared his story with the guests to get everyone warmed up. Then things got started with Aki’s voice cheering up the night, followed by the rest of the vocals and bands.

It all ended at about 1:00am in the morning. The artists put on a great show and really connected with the guests, songs were sung with a load of feeling and passion.

They will keep going and tour around Malaysia and Singapore for performance. Just an update, the ticket for their next stop in KL on 30th August are sold out. Only two stops available now which are Kluang, Johor on our Merdeka Day and Singapore on the 1st of September.

Support our local artists and please drop by the tour’s facebook page for more information.

Justice for Chee Gaik Yap

Justice for Chee Gaik Yap

We just lodged police reports on the 2th July 2013 at the Balai Polis Tengkera Melaka, in hoping that justice will be done for the rape-murder of Chee Gaik Yap.

victim Chee Gaik Yap

victim Chee Gaik Yap

Seven years ago, Chee Gaik Yap, a marketing executive and Universiti Utara Malaysia graduate, was believed to have been tailed by her assailant while jogging in the neighbourhood of Taman Ria Jaya in Sungai Petani.

She was kidnapped, raped and killed before her body was dumped at the housing estate.

The suspect was arrested and released on police bail, he then fled to Australia for six years to escape investigations. He was ambushed and detained at the KLIA upon returning to Malaysia last year.

He was charged for murder (not rape!?). Few days ago, the suspect was acquitted and walked out from the court as a free man, as the victim’s grieved father attempted to jump off the court building after the ruling. Luckily the pressmen managed to stop him.

It was confirmed that his semen was an evidence after he was arrested.

Why can’t he be convicted even though there’s evidence (the suspect’s semen)?

Why was he charged with only murder but not for rape?

Our lodging of police report was relatively easy and it took us only 30 minutes. The front desk officers of Balai Polis Tengkera Melaka was being very helpful.

In our reports, we demand Polis Diraja Malaysia to take further action into the investigation:

Saya hendak Polis Diraja Malaysia
(a) Menyiasat adakah Chee Gaik Yap dirogol oleh suspek Shahril Jaafar.
(b) Menyiasat siapakah orang ketiga di mana air maninya juga dijumpai di dalam kemaluan Chee Gaik Yap.
(c) Menyiasat adakah Chee Gaik Yap diseksa ataupun dicederakan oleh suspek Shahril Jaafar dan sekumpulan orang sampai mati.
(d) Mengambil tindakan yang sewajarnya dengan segera.

Make your police report, it can be done in any police station at anytime, and send a copy to reportcheegaikyap@gmail.com to draw more awareness.

We hope justice could be done.

Pay Fong High School, founded in 1913 and being the only Chinese Independent School in my hometown Melaka was celebrating celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. I was invited by my friend Chow-Gui, the teacher of Pay Fong String Orchestra to observe the night celebration at its hall.

It was great to be there and photographed the performance. Congratulation to Pay Fong High School.

May all bEEings be happy.

覆杯水于坳堂之上,则芥为之舟,置杯焉则胶,水浅而舟大也。风之积也不厚,则其负大翼也无力。故九万里,则风斯在下矣,而后乃今培风;背负青天,而莫之夭阏者,而后乃今将图南。
