Title: Man Meets Ape
Location: Perdana Lake Gardens, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Date: 19 July 2008, 10.17am
Camera: Nikon D60 with Aperture: f/5.6, ISO Equiv.: 100
I used this image as my blog avatar. In this picture, I am holding a four years old orang-utan. This is such a momentous moment in my life. Imagine that! "Human Meets Ape"
aaaaaaaa
Title: Natural Perfurme
Location: Perdana Lake Gardens, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Date: 19 July 2008, 10.06am
Camera: Nikon D60 with Aperture: f/6.3, ISO Equiv.: 100
I still remember this picture. It was taken at the first floral booth. I was greeted warmly by the managing director of this perfume company. He was asking "Young man...How much you charge for your pictures?" and I answered "I am just taking photos as a part time hobby". Nevertheless, he gave me his business card and asked me to snap some pictures here and there. Later, I sent some pictures to his email account. I got a reply from him few days later with some wonderful comments. I guess that is the moment that make me a proud 'photographer'.

Title: A loving heart
Location: Perdana Lake Gardens, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Date: 19 July 2008, 1.10pm
Camera: Nikon D60 with Aperture: f/8.0, ISO Equiv.: 100
I dedicated this warm loving heart for those who have known me. I left so many people in the last five years. I 'LOVE' them but it's difficult to voice out my inner feelings. I will be truly happy if I brought something new to your life and also happiness to you.

Location: Perdana Lake Gardens, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Date: 19 July 2008, 1.15pm

I am going to discover Bukit Malawati or Malawati Hill tomorrow. I have HIGH EXPECTATION - hoping to see for myself the silver leaf monkeys holding their golden brown babies, exploring the fisherman village at Kuala Selangor and also 'capture' NATURE with my decent Nikon D60 DSLR camera.

Well, my long holidays is coming to an end. Today I even received a call from a tuition centre at Taman Tun Ismail, Petaling Jaya to start preparing my teaching materials for year 2009. As Year 2008 is nigh, I am proud to sat that in the past 6 months, I traveled quite some places and captured lots of pictures.

When I first started this blog to host my collection of pictures, I just DO IT for fun. My elder brother kept on saying my pictures is nothing to shout about. Nonetheless, I am not deterred by his usual negative remarks. Overall, I am very happy with the pictures and glad to received tons of support from visitors to my blog. I've never claimed to be a professional photographer. I just be myself - no more no less.

Today, I was salvaging my stored photos and discovered some hidden gems that I like to share with you. There is a famous saying from the movie Forest Gump "Life Is like a Box of Chocolates... You Never Know What You' re Gonna Get!" This 'lost collection' is one of my all time favourite.

My new year wish? Well, I need to earn more money. I am truly inspired by people and places - the monastery and people in Tibet, the incredible India, endless oriental landmarks in China and the list is endless. I will conquer these places in Year 2009! Life is too short...I WILL travel and discover these places. Currently, I am so incomplete and trapped in Malaysia :(

Lastly, Thank You so much to all your wonderful support people! I wish you a HO! HO! HO! Merry Christmas and also a Happy New Year.

Traveling & photography are the most rewarding & enriching experiences in my life. Photography is all about discovery, enjoying myself, having adventure, learning people & nature. The greatest experience for me is the connection I felt with NATURE. If you haven’t seen Malaysia, you haven’t seen the world!
