By | Juesatta art, Photography | 2 Comments

On the 2nd of January, Photonian organised an event shooting to a fashion show, The Fantasyland 2010 from Brush Up Academy at the Aloha fashion bar in Melaka. The fashion show was lovely with brilliant make-up artists and their art-work.  

The difficulty in this shooting was the lighting and smoke used in this event. Because it was in a club, the venue was dark and the show was flashed with spot lights and laser-like beams. From point to point, smoke effect was used to enhance the mysterious atmosphere, however gave us a little of difficulty to the sharpness and colors of our photos.

(马六甲)週四(1月14日)在武吉峇汝圣陶沙花园入口处遇车祸身亡的21岁女郎黄梅貽,一年前就曾告诉舅舅有意在去世后捐献器官的意愿,如今她不幸发生车祸去世,家人为完成她的心愿,今日(週五,1月15日)决定捐出眼角膜及长骨,遗爱人间。 

死者一位不愿透露姓名的舅舅週五在中央医院告诉媒体,梅貽在吉隆坡读书时就住在他家里,约一年前,梅貽拿著捐献器官的表格回来,询问他的意见。 

“当时我对她说,生命是无常的,只有死亡是肯定。捐献器官是好事,因为能够把希望带给更多的人,但是必须由自己决定。” 

他指出,梅貽未来得及向父母表达她的意愿,就发生了车祸。家人获悉她生前的心愿后,决定遵循她的意愿,捐出梅貽的器官以拯救其他人。

KUALA LUMPUR – A MOSQUE was vandalised in Sarawak on Saturday, threatening to deepen the row between Muslims and Christians over the ‘Allah’ controversy.

Police found broken glass near the wall outside the mosque in Kota Samarahan, about 40km from the main town of Kuching. It was the first mosque attacked in the recent violence against places of worship.

‘Don’t make any speculation. We are investigating this incident,’ deputy police chief Ismail Omar told the media. ‘The situation remains peaceful and no one should take advantage of this to create something bad.’

The trouble was touched off by a High Court ruling last month that allowed a Catholic newspaper, the Herald, to use Allah to refer to God.

Since then, 10 churches and a Sikh Gurdwara temple have been vandalised.

The latest church was vandalised on Friday night in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan. Its side windows were broken.

Malaysian police yet to determine if attack in Sarawak is linked to Allah issue

SEREMBAN, Sat — A window pane of the Grace Global Prayer Church in Rasah here was found broken last night, believed to be the work of a vandal, Negeri Sembilan police chief Datuk Osman Salleh said today.

He said the police were confident of catching the suspect because a security guard had seen a man damaging the window at about 7.30pm.

Church secretary David Raju said his wife noticed the damaged window and glass splinters on the ground floor of the church, located in a row of two-storey shophouses, when they had gone there at night.

This is the second church in Seremban to have suffered damage in the wake of a Kuala Lumpur High Court decision on Dec 31 allowing the Catholic weekly magazine, Herald, to use the word “Allah” (God) in its publications.

On January 11, the door of the Sidang Injil Borneo (SIB) Church in Lakeview Square, Seremban 2, was scorched by vandals. — BERNAMA
