Here’s our first video ever about our hometown Malaqa (Melaka). This is the first part of the video, which highlights some of the morning and afternoon’s daily life in the town.

It was shot in Dec 2011, at few locations such as Harmony Street, Melaka Raya, Bukit Cina, Little India, Melaka River, Stadhuys, St Paul Hill, Jonker Street, Hereen Street and Pulau Melaka.

Thanks to friends for your support, and we appreciate your precious advice.

Enjoy and hope you like the video! May all beings be happy.

Sunset photography at Pulau Melaka

After doing the sunset photography at the Portuguese Settlement last week, I decided to try again yesterday. The weather was acceptable during evening, clear sky yet windy. I traveled to Pulau Melaka, a man-made island in Melaka and headed to the north side of the island. Driving into the bush and I found a good spot to view the sunset. 

dusk arrived and two men were fishing at the beach of Pulau Melaka

The spot seems like a small bay where the beach is partially surrounded by rocks and concretes. There were only a few people fishing there when I arrived. It was high tide and the tide was flowing which left me a little room of the beach to setup the gears. Shame to say that the beach was full of rubbish such as plastic bags, bottles, straws, and food wrappers, which I had to clear those junks to obtain clean shots.

The precious golden hour was short and luckily I managed to try some shots with different settings. The shots turned up to be alright but not quite what I expected. I wish to try the shots again during low tide. Soon after dusk, I headed back home.

Please beware if you go to the north side of the island: when the tide set in, part of the drive way will be flooded and your vehicle will get stuck in that area for hours before the tide ebbs.

Sharing some of the shots I took. May all being be happy.
