[caption id="attachment_7347" align="aligncenter" width="600" caption="mirrored Melaka River "][/caption] Few days ago, I took a slow drive around the town for relaxation on my way back after a full working day. It was midnight and I passed through the bridges in Melaka heritage city. I noticed the water of Sungai Melaka (Melaka River) was so calm and so its surface appeared mirror-like. Glad that I had my camera with me, however the bad news was I left the tripod at home. To get steady night shots without tripod, it was challenging. I had to relax my body, hold the camera tight...

[caption id="attachment_7310" align="aligncenter" width="600" caption="the joy of Phnom Phen's Russian Market"]the joy of Phnom Phen's Russian Market[/caption] The first morning in Phnom Penh, we went to Russian Market, the place where the Russians would hang out during the Vietnam war. The market has been known by its English name since 1980s, and is popular shopping heaven in Phnom Phen among tourists, local expatriates and Cambodians alike. Russian Market is really big and is the place we could find all manner of hardware goods, antique furniture, traditional carvings and handicraft, hand-woven silk, music, movie and computer CDs, silverware, gems, books and maps, backpacks and bags and shoes and clothing, drinks and cooked food. You name it, you get it.

Of course it was not difficult for us as we practice it most of the time in Malaysia. A wide range of real and fake items sold in the market. Some authentic branded shoes and clothing, though not all, can be found at very inexpensive price, as they are manufactured in Cambodia somehow rejected due to quality control issues. Most of our friends purchased souvenirs here, and some had their shirt, pant or dress tailor-made here at very reasonable price and thumbs up quality. They purchased the fabric there, handed to the tailors and had their clothing picked up on the following day. The place was flooded with tourists and locals. Please be warned of the market's heat and narrow passageways in search for shopping buys. So those who are claustrophobic might find it difficult to survive the market. The conditions add to the ambiance of an Asian market however. I chose to take photos rather to shop. Few minutes of walk I got so sweaty even wearing a thin t-shirt. However I loved weaving my way around the market with my camera and finding lots of interesting people and things to shoot. Few hours of walk, I did not finish even half of the market. We had to leave to Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum as schedule and many were still demanding for more time extension. Therefore the guide took us there again on the following day for last minute shopping, just before we headed to Phnom Penh International Airport. Russian Market is simply crowded, cheap and a lot of fun! May all beings be happy. Sharing some photos I captured back there after the click:

Speaking to The Star after shaving her head, the social worker was in good spirits, starting off talking about how she looked like a Shaolin monk. “All I need is a yellow robe. But on a...

[caption id="attachment_7247" align="aligncenter" width="480" caption="Leaf shelter: Mummy orangutan protects baby from the rain "][/caption] As everyone knows, getting caught in a summer shower can leave you a little under-prepared, with newspapers and briefcases often used to cover heads. And life in the jungle is no different for this inventive orangutan mother and her child in the rainforest of Tanjung Puting National Park in the Indonesian province of Kalimantan, on the island of Borneo. Gathering foliage from the ground at the first sign of rain, the adult orangutan made an impromptu rain hat that coupled as...
