KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 21 — Two suraus in Muar, Johor were damaged in suspected arson attacks early this morning, weeks after similar attacks against churches, believed to be linked to the controversial “Allah” ruling.

Police found traces of kerosene in the Sirratulrahim Surau in Kampung Sabak Awor, Jalan Ismail which had a window and curtains burnt, while the Parit Beting surau suffered worse damage.

“There is a black mark on the door,” Muar Deputy OCPD Lee Choon Guan told The Malaysian Insider when contacted at the Parit Beting surau. Apart from the door, he said a carpet and windows were scorched. Stones were also reportedly thrown at the building.

The police forensics team is now taking evidence the surau.

秀才的梦

Scholar's dreams by CJ

有位秀才第三次进京赶考,住在一个经常住的店里。考试前两天他做了三个梦,第一个梦是梦到自己在墙上种白菜,第二个梦是下雨天,他戴了斗笠还打伞,第三个梦是梦到跟心爱的表妹脱光了衣服躺在一起,但是背靠着背。  

这三个梦似乎有些深意,秀才第二天就赶紧去找算命的解梦。算命的一听,连拍大腿说:“你还是回家吧。你想想,高墙上种菜不是白费劲吗?戴斗笠打雨伞不是多此一举吗?跟表妹都脱光了躺在一张床上了,却背靠背,不是没戏吗?”   

秀才一听,心灰意冷,回店收拾包袱准备回家。店老板非常奇怪,问:“不是明天才考试吗,今天你怎么就回乡了?”秀才如此这般说了一番,店老板乐了:“哟,我也会解梦的。我倒觉得,你这次一定要留下来。你想想,墙上种菜不是高种吗?戴斗笠打伞不是说明你这次有备无患吗?跟你表妹脱光了背靠靠躺在床上,不是说明你翻身的时候就要到了吗?”   

秀才一听,更有道理,于是精神振奋地参加考试,居然中了个探花。  

积极的人,象太阳,照到哪里哪里亮,消极的人,象月亮,初一十五不一样。想法决定我们的生活,有什么样的想法,就有什么样的未来。

Leopard: What's that?

Last sunday, photonian organised a shooting at the Zoo of Melaka, Air Keroh. Nine of us went there for 2 hours during the evening. It was really a good time to shoot the animals because the slumberous animals became active during evening. 

Telephoto lens are essential for shooting wildlife. In this case, I had to stand as close as possible to the animals to have a better shot with my kit lens.

Event photography for Fantasyland 2010 at Aloha

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.
