Marina and Toyota MRS

Last weekend, I went to a models and sport cars shooting event with the photonian. We spent a good time there shooting the lovely models and stunning sport cars.

Title: Photonian Event – Sport Cars & Models
Location: Autocity Melaka
Date: 31st January 2010
Models: Fanny, Annika Soo, Shynan Gan, Marina-Na, Stella Koh
Sport Cars: Mazda RX8, two Toyota MRS (white and yellow), Nissan 350Z

I would like to express my apology to Fanny. Fanny was the first model I shoot for this event. I was not ready for this event by doing research before I went. Fanny is a gorgeous model and posed well, however, I was not able to get a good angle to snap especially this was the first time I took models and sport cars.

This would be a good lesson for everyone including me to be prepared for any photography event before hand by doing research online and check out some good examples taken by professional photographers. Another good advice I got from a friend of min, Han: don’t rush into the shooting when you reach the place, calm yourself before any shooting and get into the mood. You have look around the environment, imagine the pictures you will be taking.

Thanks to photonian moderators for organising such a wonderful shooting, the gorgeous models who being so friendly and cooperative and the owners of cars who being so patient and kind with us. Below are some of the shots I have taken and share with everyone:

Save tiger: one of the most magnificent but endangered animals

The tiger, one of the most magnificent animals in the world, is also one of the most endangered. A cat of beauty, strength, and majesty, the tiger is master of all and subject to none — except humans. Of the eight original subspecies of tigers, three have become extinct within the last 60 years; and there are less than 50 South China tigers left on this planet — few, and possibly none, survive in the wild.

There are five different kinds or subspecies of tiger alive in the world today. These tigers are called Siberian, South China, Indochinese, Bengal, and Sumatran. Their Latin name is Panthera tigris. Tigers are an endangered species; only about 5,000 to 7,400 tigers are left in the wild. Three tiger subspecies, the Bali, Javan, and Caspian tigers have become extinct in the past 70 years.

Poachers are continuing to exterminate the world’s remaining Tigers. New demand across Southeast Asia for the skins, teeth and claws of tigers is endangering much of the great cats, particularly the Sumatran tiger. Currently, the demand for Tiger parts is centered in several parts of Asia where there is a strong market for traditional medicines made from items like tiger bone and body parts. Volumes are sizeable and there has been little enforcement action against poachers and traders.

“春暖人间、家家贴春联”的工委主席戴桂珠女士在文化小学现场挥毫,写得一手好字。

上个星期,我跟着“春暖人间、家家贴春联”的团队和书法家,到几间小学去推广书法和募捐。其中的学校有文化小学、陪二小学、平民小学和香林小学。这个活动是为峇章圣约翰洗肾中心筹款,希望帮助患有肾脏病的患者,同时也大家响应贴春联,增加春天的气息。各界人士,包括了书法家、学生、老师等等,都出钱出力,支持富有意义的活动。

据我所知,文化小学筹到了4千零吉,打破了去年的纪录。培二小学也卖了400幅春联,筹获了1千3百零吉。而平民小学所筹到的款项要到这个星期五才知晓。只有少过两百学生的香林小学也筹获了6百多零吉。

以下是我拍到的照片,和大家分享。

未来主人翁:学小提琴陶冶性情‧小建夆用心练习不言弃

By | Compassion | No Comments
一名小提琴家曾說過:“讓孩子學琴,為的不是造就小提琴家,而是造就人,音樂對人的性情有極大的陶冶作用,會使人成為一個感情豐富的人,一個有格調和品位的人,一個富有同情心的人。”

林妈妈叶纹杏(33岁)也认同这个理念,她认為学音乐的孩子不会变坏,对孩子而言,这是一种素质的培养,是為孩子创造一个良性循环的开始,因此,她与丈夫林保瀧(39岁)认真考虑后,同意让儿子林建夆3岁时开始学习小提琴。
