Team Holiday



























Port Dickson
iPhone 5S

Who says bringing up a child is easy? 

It's very likely that this holiday's planned around the little girl; just look at the colour coded outfit and attentions paid to the princess ;)

Backstage








































Kuala Lumpur
iPhone 3GS

Spotted Ronald taking a break. Realized it were not all glamour and excitements at the backstages as I have always imagined...

Blocked Views

























Kuala Lumpur
Ricoh GRV 18mm

Don't you ever feel annoyed by these over-enthusiastic parents? Well at least this one gave me a 'live telecast' view...























Kuala Lumpur
Leica M-E. Summicron-M 35mm

... this one's either a super-rich fully-geared father, or a super ignorant 'professional' camera crew  :(

Connection
























Kuala Lumpur
Ricoh GRV 18mm

A simple poster, yet a connection can be made instantly, and amazingly, beyond time, space and material... when the conditions are polarized.

Capturing Art


























Melbourne
Leica M-E. Summicron-M 35mm


There are places where photography is prohibited, like in some concerts, museums, art galleries, and even some buildings (heard about the Eiffel Tower lately?).  

I was once stopped from taking pictures of an old structure at KLPAC by their security.  I wrote an email to them and I was told I could take the pictures if I were to pay a fee (they were talking thousands of Ringgit), as "it's private property".

Restrictions on flash photography in a museum/gallery/concert I can understand, but no photo taking at all is bad (don't get me started about KLPAC); isn't art is all about sharing?

Burden


























Kuala Lumpur
iPhone 5s

What made me shot this was what came into my mind the first instance, "Hey you are endangering others' lives!".  

I shot it, drove past him, and thought nothing about it until I opened up the photo later in the day.  The stuff he was carrying and the shadow in the picture somehow tell me he wasn't exactly enjoying his ride. It was a beautiful day on a Ducati perhaps but a day job carrying junk on a kapcai it became a long-hot-tiring day ahead.

He may be riding his overloaded bike this way illegally, but I'll give way every time I see him, and pray for his safety.

Sunny Day




















Work for Food
Kuala Lumpur
Ricoh GRV 18mm

Sunny day is nice on a holiday, a day out to take photos or people watching from a cafe.  But it may not be so nice if you have to work under the sun...






















Kuala Lumpur
Fujifilm X100 Fujinon 23mm




Kuala Lumpur
Leica M-E. Summicron-M 35mm

... then again, an all-windows office (c/w air-conditioning, a desk-top PC, and a badge!) may not be all that bad?

Perhaps depending how one looks at it, a sunny day is a colorful day after all :)

Halloween







































Kuala Lumpur
HP IPAQ

The Echocardiography Room usually looks friendlier during the day. 

It was in the middle of the might, some years ago (notice the picture was shot with an IPAQ?). I was going through a scan to prepare for my surgery the next day.  Of course, I didn't forget to take some pictures before I was wheeled in.

And I survived the nightmare  :)

Sounds like Halloween eh?
