The Daily Fix Cafe in Jonker Street Melaka (bottom center : Murphy)

After having the Lightning to USB Camera Adapter from Mac City last month, I can now transfer photos straight from my camera to iPhone or iPad tablet, process them then post directly from iOS.

Last month, after a portrait session at our studio, my good friend Murphy invited me to his newly found favorite spot for coffee, The Daily Fix Cafe. It’s also one of my favorite cafes in Melaka.

I had the Camera Adapter with me to the cafe with Murphy, and my camera too. So I did some captures at the cafe, which is always my thing to jalan-jalan and photograph. Right now, it’s even better! I could transfer the images to my iPad immediately, did some post-processing with Snapseed, a great and free photo editing app from Google. Then share the photo to my Facebook or Instagram directly, while the coffee is still warm. 🙂

Here’s a collage of images taken at the cafe. Try the pandan pancakes, their specialty when you are there, and add on ice-cream to it 🙂

Chinese New Year 2016 in Melaka

End of the year and beginning of year is the busiest period for photographers with wedding assignments and commercial photography. Most of the time we filled our working days with DSLR camera and gears. Therefore, we try not to bring our heavy camera during our leisure time.

It doesn’t kill our passion even without having the camera with us. Phone has thus become our best friend. Nowadays they provide amazing camera feature and produce good quality images.

During this Chinese New Year festival season in January and February, I wake up early with my daily routine and always walked around Melaka town to do preparation prior to Chinese New Year. It’s in me to capture some images of Melaka with Chinese New Year mood. Not with the DSLR camera but the lighter camera I carry always, ‘my mobile phone’. 😀

Here are some of the shots I lovEE. 新年快乐! Happy New Year and Happy Chap Goh Mei!

Last Day at the first McDonald’s in Melaka

Last day at the first McD in Melaka, McD Fajar

Last day at the first McD in Melaka, McD Fajar

Malaccans from the 90s, 80s, 70s, 60s, 50s or even earlier would know this McD which was the the first in Melaka located inside Soon Seng Plaza (formerly known as Fajar). Today it was the last day of its operation.

We managed to drop by today and had a dinner before it ceased its operation today. We recalled all the good times we had with our family and friends over there back in the 80s and 90s. It was the McD we celebrated various occasions such as birthday, and friends and family gathering during our childhood.

Thank you again for serving us for so many years. We will miss this place. 🙂

Thank you Bomba Malaysia (fire fighter) for saving the kitten

One of the fire fighters climbed up the 20-feet coconut to bring down the little kitten.

Thank you Bomba Malaysia for saving this kitten, who was chased by dogs and climbed up a 20-feet tall coconut tree. We believed she got stuck in the tree for 24 hours and couldn’t get down.

When we heard and found her, we couldn’t help her but to call Bomba of Melaka for help. After 15 minutes, they came with their gears and saved the kitten from the tree.

Thank you again, we appreciate your effort and kindness.

May all bEE happy 🙂

Terima kasih kepada pihak Bomba Malaysia yang menyelamatkan kucing. Ia melarikan diri ke atas pokok kelapa yang lebih kurang 20 kaki, akibat dikejar anjing. 15 minit kemudian selepas kami telefon pihak Bomba, mereka pun tiba and menyelamatkan kuching itu dari pokok kelapa.

Terima kasih and semoga berkhidmat dengan lebih cemerlang 🙂
