Aquaria KLCC with parents and aunt Peggy

By | My journey, Photography | No Comments

On the last day of September, I spent a wonderful time to the Aquaria KLCC with my parents and aunt Peggy. It had been ages since I last went for a trip with parents so it made this trip so much fun and memorable.

In the morning, we traveled north from Melaka reached our destination, Kuala Lumpur in the afternoon. The Aquaria KLCC is in KLCC certainly. It is a decent size, seemed very clean and well run aquarium. It costs us (for Malaysian citizen) RM35 per adult and RM25 for senior citizen.

The entrance of the aquarium is at upper level and we were first greeted by the furious piranhas. There was a touch pool just next to the piranhas’ tank where we could touch and feel the crabs, starfish and gentle bamboo shark. We also observed creatures which defend themselves by discharging electricity such as the electric eel, catfish etc. followed by the stream mammals like giant water rat and otter. Then we came to the reptiles, amphibians and insects zone which we saw little crocs, big gecko, colorful yet poisonous frogs, beautiful butterflies’ specimens, venomous spiders etc.

We then walked down the steps to the lower level of the aquarium and first saw a big tube tank ensconces an ancient tree and fishes. This was the section of the fresh water fishes including giant catfishes and huge Arapaimas which live in the nutrient-rich waters of Amazon.

Our tour continued to the 90 meter transparent underwater tunnel. While enjoying the tranquil atmosphere beneath the depths of open water, we walked along the tunnel ‘together’ with Sand Tiger Sharks, eels, giant stingrays, green turtles, and various kinds of schooling fish. We too arrived just in time for the feeding frenzy where scuba divers were in the tank feeding and interacting with the fishes. The show was simply amazing.

Before we exited the aquarium we had the chance to observe the cute little seahorses, mysterious jellyfishes, and beautiful yet sadly endangered corals. More and more coral reefs over the world have been hit by coral bleaching resulting from global warming, when corals lose their color. Soon or later, we will not be able to see beautiful underwater scenery. So it’s our duty to love and care for the environment for a better tomorrow.

Well, the Aquaria KLCC is definitely a worth going place to go in KL especially with family. Before we headed back to Melaka at night, we went to the Look Out Point or also known as Little Genting in Ampang Hill for a dinner with Ah Too and Chin-Sing. The food of the restaurant we picked was OK as in acceptable, however the night scenery of KL was just stunning!

Thanks to my parents, aunt, Ah Too and Chin-Sing for making this trip so unforgetable. I had a really good time and am looking forward for another trip in the near future.

May all beings be happy. Sharing some shots I captured of the trip:

法光法师书法作品义卖

By | Chinese calligraphy, Involvement | No Comments

。。。。。。法光法师生于马六甲,年少时皈依金明上人,在新加坡出家,依止上妙下华法师,过后赴日本东京驹泽大学,并完成佛学博士课程,曾在日本,台湾与马新等地弘法。

法光法师在日本完成佛学课程后返甲期间,正值马佛总甲分会8个佛教团体,为筹建野新弥陀村而展开积极的筹款活动。

了解筹建弥陀村,成就念佛人修行,是一项伟大的人间菩萨道志业,法光法师也献出多份墨宝,供野新弥陀村义卖筹款。

在法光法师挥毫时,曾陪伴在侧的马佛总甲分会《经教教育学会》主任何庆保说,法光师的墨宝苍劲有力,即使对书法认识不深者,一看也会喜欢。

“最难得的是,法光师不花时间在纸上构思与比拟,心中有了要写的字,笔上沾了墨,就一挥而就,前后不到一分钟,而跃然于纸上的墨宝,左右彼此之间的呼应,往往都是恰到好处,让人对中文书法有另一层体会,更有想依样画葫芦之冲动。 但是,大家心里都知道,如果没有长期的薰习,绝对不可能具备这种随手拈来的深功夫!”

至于刺血作画, 法光法师先用布条紧缚其中一个手指头,然后用针头刺血,心中的粗稿,也是纸上的定稿。一幅庄严的观世音菩萨画像,前后也只是两个小时左右即告完成。

鉴于法光法师在新加坡的法缘殊胜,其墨宝也常供义卖筹款。而一幅血画观音像,在新加坡的义卖价高达2万新币。

而今,法光法师奉献血画观音像,为野新弥陀村筹款,义卖价只是1万马币,主办当局相信一定能够找到买主。

有关血画观音像庄严高雅,除了可当艺术品珍藏,亦可供奉在佛堂之上。

欢迎马六甲社会大众,于本月29日及30日,前往唐宋普洱茶馆,参观书画义卖展,从有关作品的一笔一划中,细细品味作者的艺术境界。

虽是一间茶坊,马六甲唐宋普洱茶艺馆却深深认同马佛总甲分会8个佛团目前积极筹建之马佛总《野新弥陀村》,是一项非常有意义的佛陀志业,因而安排槟城著名画家吴惠琴,献出水墨画作进行慈善义卖,为《野新弥陀村》筹款。

这项善举也获得留学日本的法光法师积极响应,献出多份墨宝,以及刺血绘画的观音菩萨圣像,共襄义举。

槟城三慧讲堂捐赠予《野新弥陀村》之缅甸玉佛,也将在这项慈善义卖展中,让有缘的佛弟子请购。

《野新弥陀村》一切从头开始,需要十方的支持。。。而您的发心支持,功德无量!

前几天我父亲托我到他的朋友的店,拍摄这几幅由法光师父所挥的书法作品。

其中义卖的法光法师作品:

congratulation to Celine Lai and Kevin Liew!

congratulation to Celine Lai and Kevin Liew!

What a beautiful month of September for Celine and Kevin’s wedding! I was very luck and it gave me so much pleasure to photograph their wedding.

Celine and Kevin folks’ houses are very near. On the actual day, we started at Celine’s place and the ‘brothers from the groom side’ had so much fun with the surprise door games set up by the ‘sisters of the bride’, especially doing the Wonder Girls’ Nobody dancing with coconut bras. Celine and Kevin also invited family and friends for the wedding dinner at Holiday Inn Melaka a week before the actual day ceremony.

It was really a nice wedding and both Celine and Kevin were one of the loveliest couples I have worked with. I wish all the love and happiness to Celine and Kevin, and thanks to them for having me as their photographer.

May all beings be happy. Below are some of the photos from the actual day ceremony and the wedding dinner:

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”

outlook of Eye to Eye optical shop in Dataran Pahlawan shopping center

After helping my old friend, Henry to take staff photos of Eye to Eye optical shop a year ago, he asked me again to take a photo of the shop’s outlook end of last month. It was a difficult task and I completed in only few minutes.

While waiting for Henry to go for a tea break, I found the design of some optical frames very beautiful and interesting especially those of Ed Hardy, its amazing tattoo tastes design. Before I packed my camera into the bag, I took some photos of some nice frames and the staff Henry, Danny and a new colleague I yet to know her name.

If you happen to drop by Dataran Pahlawan Melaka, get a closer look of the beautiful glasses available from the shop.

Sharing the shots of the day. May all beings be happy.

PS: mention of the name cj might get you some discount. Hehehe..

Baby En-en

little En-en didn't want to sleep

little En-en didn't want to sleep

Two days ago I went to visit En-en, baby of Janic. She is a cute, two-month old, and very healthy baby. Janic told me En-en has been very active lately and hardly feeling sleepy.

During my visit, I captured some photos of En-en and it wasn’t easy. En-en has associated love with Janic’s arms, thus cried and didn’t want to fall asleep whenever Janic left her on the bed for taking photos.

Thanks to Janic, hopefully we get to photograph En-en again, certainly together with the mom and dad. Little En-en shall spread smiles and warmth in the family. May she be as fascinating, beautiful and cheerful as her mother and as smart and kind as her father.
