2012 Dragon in Malaqa

By | Beautiful Melaka, Music and video | No Comments

Before we release the second part of “Our town Malaqa” video, Fred, Kenn and I made a short film of pre Chinese New Year’s (CNY) atmosphere in Melaka.

While we were filming for the first video about our lovely hometown last month, it came to our mind that to do a Chinese New Year’s video as well, to share the many moments of CNY happiness with our fellow friends and family.

This video features decoration of Chinese New Year in the streets of Melaka town, shopping mood in Dahtaran Pahlawan, lion dance championship in Mahkota Parade, and invited some locals and foreigners to say a few greetings.

And fortunately we managed to capture the 398 feet long of 1Malaysia prosperity Dragon guarding the entrance to Jonker Street. The clips were included into the video right before we finalized it.

We really appreciate all of the great support and help from our friends in making this film. Besides, we would like to thank our friends and family who are always so kind and supportive to us. Without you life would be less colorful and nice.

Happy Chinese New Year! Gong Xi Fa Cai!

May all beings bEE happy.

Message from spring

message of spring

message of spring

Congratulation to our town Melaka, being among the 45 ‘must-visit’ places in year 2012, as listed by The New York Times!

“With its lantern-lighted canals and silent, narrow streets lined with decades-old ornate temples and shop houses, few places in Southeast Asia conjure romantic images of the past as effectively as Malacca, Malaysia’s oldest city. A former Portuguese, Dutch and British colony, this Unesco World Heritage site is now attracting record numbers of tourists lured by its unusual architecture and cuisine, which reflect centuries of foreign influences.

More than seven million visitors are expected in 2011, so the town, about 90 miles southeast of the capital, Kuala Lumpur, is welcoming new hotels like the Casa del Rio, a Portuguese-inspired luxury boutique property with 66 rooms; and Courtyard@Heeren, a 100-year-old shop house converted into a 14-room hotel. When you’re not exploring places like the 17th-century former Dutch town hall or Jonker Street’s antiques shops, gorge on Malacca’s outstanding local specialties, like creamy, piquant nyonya laksa at the family-run Donald & Lily’s.”


It’s a good news for all our dear friends. And we have to help to keep our town the clean, safe, friendly and happening place we all know and love.

Right, keeping the spring’s mood going! Sharing some shots of Melaka. While doing filming with Kenn-Wai and Fred these few weeks for our next coming video, I also collected a series of photos which I hope to deliver the atmosphere of Chinese New Year in town.

These shots were taken in a few location including Jalan Hang Kasturi, Jonker Street, Bemban and Jasin.

Happy Chinese New Year to all and may all beings be happy.

Blood donation drive at Jonker Street on first day of 2012

Meng-Hong donating blood on the first day of new year 2012 at Jonker Street

Meng-Hong donating blood on the first day of new year 2012 at Jonker Street

St. John Ambulance Malaysia is a Malaysian-based, non-profit statutory body dedicated to the works of humanity and charity for the relief of persons in sickness, distress, suffering or danger without any distinction of race, class, colour or creed.

Last Sunday which was also the first day of new year, a blood donation drive held by St. John’s Ambulance Malaysia of Melaka state and co-organized by Sin Chew Daily press took place in the Jonker Street Melaka.

When Meng-Hong and I went during the evening, many people from the public were registering and queuing to donate their blood, proving itself again as the community always ready to help others. The next day I read on paper, the donation drive was a great success with 95 blood units donated successfully.

Patients suffering from life threatening diseases and conditions need blood to save their lives, and this constant need can only be met through voluntary blood donations.

Thanks to the generous efforts of the volunteers and donors. I took some shots of the donation drive during our visit.

May all beings be happy.

congratulation to Celestle Chai and Dennis Lee!

congratulation to Celestle Chai and Dennis Lee!

Had a great time with Celestle and Dennis on their big day.

Celestle and Dennis married on the most perfect day last month, 20.11.2011 in Muar, Johor and it was a pleasure to documented their wedding. We started from Dennis parents’ place in Muar while Celestle got ready at her parents’ home in Bahau, Negeri Sembilan. Then we drove north in the early morning to Celestle’s place and endured a few door games before the groom could get to his bride.

The beautiful day was perfected with a joyful reception held in Muar with the piano performance of Dennis’ sister, Rebecca and friends. Although it was drizzling in the evening, it didn’t turn down anyone’s mood.

Their day was warm and just lovely !It was happy to see a couple surrounded by such loving and supportive family and friends.

Congratulation to Celestle and Dennis for tying the knot and thanks for having me to capture the important milestone in your life.

God bless you both and enjoy!
