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!

Boy-boy has grown up, got out from his baby crib and walking like a normal child…

It had been a year since I visited Boy-boy. Time seems to pass quickly. Last time I could remember, he was in his baby crib.

After our trip to Pertubuhan Kebajikan Villa Harapan Melaka, we continued our visit to the Handicapped and Mentally Disabled Children Centre Melaka in Bukit Baru with the children from Merlimau.

Amy the care keeper was there doing some introductory and explaining the daily operation to the children before she brought us around. I could still see familiar faces. The thing that really surprised me was Boy-boy, he was like a healthy and normal child (he had a heart surgery), following us around the centre.

My parents were glad to see the children were mixing happily as they were part of the big family there. After taking some shots, my parents had to leave the centre for our next appointment, leaving the children with the teachers.

Just before we left the centre, a group of students from MMU came to visit the centre. And Amy again, brief to them patiently. It’s glad that the centre is getting more attention from the public as it needed to be, public support is the source of funding to keep the centre’s operation.

May all beings be happy. Sharing shots taken during our visit,

Pre-Christmas 2011 in Kuala Lumpur

Pre-Christmas atmosphere in Kuala Lumpur

Pre-Christmas atmosphere in Kuala Lumpur

Christmas atmosphere is almost everywhere in KL’s busy shopping malls now. After the street photography in Pudu with friends, we walked to the shopping area to have our lunch and certainly to feel in the spirit of Christmas.

We made to Time Square first as Fred had an appointment with a customer. Then through Low Yat Plaza and Sungei Wang we went to the Lot 10’s food court. It’s named Hutong Lot 10 food court, is offering variety of non-halal food that took us quite some time to decide what to have. I heard that each of these eateries is specially hand-picked by the CEO of Lot 10, Tan Sri Francis Yeoh. After a yummy meal, we visited Fahrenheit 88, Starhill Gallery and finally arrived at Pavillion.

At this time of the year, most malls in KL are dressed up in beautiful Christmas decoration and create special and magical Christmas experiences for the shoppers. Christmas trees, rein deers, Santa Claus and Santarina, angels, EElves, vibrant and colorful lightings, special Christmas’s delicacy and anything to do with Christmas are seen everywhere. We had recharged our energy after lunch and started to get some shots of the lovely environment.

It had been a decade since I strolled in KL city like this. I always think KL as a busy, stressful and hectic city. This visit however gave me a different perception. It was crowded and busy as usual, yet calm, relaxing and filled with laughter and joy. Perhaps it was simply that the festival atmosphere had taken over. The crowd just having fun, spending sweet time with family or loved ones, and hang out with friends.

So we too had so much fun and glad that we made it to this trip, not to mention meeting up with Robin and Chun-Chow. Thanks to Fred and Kenn-Wai for inviting me, and we are looking forward for a next time in near future.

Here’s wishing you all the joys of the season, may your Christmas be filled with peace and love. Happy Christmas!

Pudu street photography for the first time

morning reading at Pudu's street

morning reading at Pudu's street

Last Saturday, I had the pleasure to meet up with Robin Wong and Chun-Chow in Kuala Lumpur together with Fred and Kenn-Wai. It was drizzling early morning when we left Kelana Jaya where we stayed at the place of Kenn-Wai’s sister. However and it turned out to be clear and sunny sky when we arrived at Pudu LRT station. The weather was really unpredictable in KL.

Even though I always took bus from Pudu bus station back to Melaka when I studied in KL, I didn’t know the place well. Robin does so he became our guide that morning. He first brought us to have a delicious Hakka noodle breakfast. As soon as we were done, so called shutter therapy session by Robin had begun.

Robin got us in the alleys, to the dry and wet markets. We were amazed by how lively the area was, and it was full of locals and foreign workers. Though we hardly see tourist over there. Most of the people there were nice even though some might not seem to be. I guess that’s the reason why Robin loved the place so much for street photography. We just discovered the other face of KL. We got to learn from Robin how he approached the crowd and captured the people so close.

Robin and Chun-Chow are experienced street photographer and familiar with the place. They knew exactly when and where to press the shutter. It was just their instinct. Fred, Kenn-Wai and I also tried to get some nice shots of the street but we rather enjoyed our walk with jokes until we reached the wet market at about 11:00 am. We couldn’t stand the strong smell of the market place under the hot sun so we threaded our way through the market quickly.

The photography session was smooth and everyone had fun. we decided to go Bukit Bintang area to take some shots of the Christmas decoration and atmosphere. While making our way to Time Square, we stopped by Pudu Plaza to have a break and share our captures with each other. Everybody gained valuable experience and intuitive knowledge in street photography from others.

May all beings by happy. Share some shots of the Pudu area:
