After an event shoot at A’Famosa Resort Malacca early this month, we made a quick drive back to Plat Kitchen in town. There was a sharing session by Cristjen Lai, a travel-artist who born in England and travels around the globe.
I first saw Cristjen’s work was the exhibition of his works at The Baboon House 2-3 years back. His drawing of portraits which emphasize the eyes of subjects really captured my attention. Now we had a chance to attend his talk.
There were also Max the travel-musician from Melaka and Silvia from Italy, these two artists sharing their travel experiences after Cristjen’s. We were late after covering the event, and yet managed to cut into the last session by Silvia, joining our friends Brendon and Avex who were already there.
Even though we missed the sharing by Cristjen and Max, we later on had a quick chat with him. We were told about his background, that he had been traveling and staying in Melaka for about a year already. He will be leaving Melaka soon to other places in the end of month. That was why he decided to do a sharing with fellow Malaccans before he leaves.
We talked about his decision of life too. He was a top student and gave out his medicine degree study to pursue his dream in art and travel around the globe, despite there was objection from the family. The reason of it – passion. He took the path where his heart told him to, doing what he really loves to.
Additionally, there are a couple of projects which are going on, initiated by Cristjen. One of them is to encourage children to draw, and hold exhibition for them. Truly inspiring and encouraging!
Big thanks to Plat Kitchen for hosting the sharing session. And thank you again Cristjen for sharing your experience and inspiration with us, we wish you all the best in your future journey.

Congratulation to the two lovely people, Ban Kim & Pei Ling who tied the knot early this year, and thanks sharing their journey with us, so much of love and sweetness.
Prior to their wedding ceremony, we had a wonderful portrait with the lovely two at a beautiful and calm paddy field near Ban Kim’s work place in Melaka. Gunung Ledang was sighted from the site, which symbolized the strong bond shared between two people, their loyalty and their friendship.
Thank you again to Ban Kim & Pei Ling for sharing your journey of love with us. You are one of the perfect pairs! Heartfelt congratulation again, have a blissful conjugal life! 🙂
Congratulation to Eric & Yan who got celebrated the birth of their first baby boy, Raphael. We covered Eric & Yan’s engagement and wedding. And before Yan got pregnant this year, we did a session of couple portrait with the two.
It was a warm evening and we were just in time for the golden sunset. It made a magnificent landscape for the beautiful two, who showed so much love for each other.
The photos here speak for themselves. Thank you again Eric & Yan for choosing us as your photographers and sharing your love with us. We hope to see you again soon with your little prince charming!
Yuan Jun & Hui Jie are both sweet couple full of creativity and DIY ideas, They did most their wedding preparation by themselves. We were invited to photograph their lovely garden wedding at A’ Farmosa Resort Melaka. They did most of their prewedding portraits by themselves during their trips to Ipoh and Muar.
A month before their tea ceremony in Tampin, we were invited to join one of their prewedding sessions at a very ‘Chinese-style’ tea house in Melaka. Yuan Jun was wearing a coat and Hui Jie was dressed in an elegant red Cheong Sam. Both of them were just stunning.
Thank you Yuan Jun & Hui Jie for inviting us be a small part of this fantastic day and sharing your love with us 🙂
Gorgeous sunset near the beach of Taman Kota Laksamana, where couples always here and immerse themselves in romance by the sea breeze.
The setting reminded me of the song “Two Less Lonely People in the World” by Air Supply.
May all bEE happy 🙂
Backlane Coffee is a new coffee place in town recommended by my good friends Eric & Yan. As its name suggests, the cafe is located on rear part of an old building near the stage of Jonker Street where there is a rear entrance access from the back lane between Jonker Street and Hereen Street.
After a few visits, when Singaporean couple Daryl & Su Ann approached us for prewedding portrait in Melaka, we brought them to Backlane Coffee for a short break, relaxed and chilled ourselves in this place full of DIY items and old-fashioned vintage decorations, and filled with aroma of coffee and freshly baked desserts. The place reminded me of the cafe back in Melbourne.
With the consent of the sweet lady boss Shu Lin, we took some portrait with the couple near the large windows of the cafe facing the back lane. Shu Lin told us, we were the first to do portrait over there 😉
If you visit this place, don’t forgot to try the tea in menu besides the good coffee, they too offer variety of sweet homemade macaroons and cakes. Recently some light meals were added to the menu, which I haven’t had a chance to try but I will.
We’d love to share this album from Facebook, of the bridal portrait with Daryl & Su Ann.
May all bEE happy 🙂
