That Train has Left the Station

Fallen sick during the Covid-19 lockdown (MCO) was not an easy experience at all. You’ll be treated as guilty with the virus until proven innocent. Especially when the symptoms relate to anything with sore throat or flu, regardless of whatever explanation that you have. On 15.04.2020, I was unlucky as I developed an allergy reaction […]

Strike of luck

What does photography teach me? As I add more months and years to my photography experience, I learned about the role of “stroke of luck” in my artwork. Unplanned moments or shall I say accidentally moments that just hit the “jackpot” or a rewarding moment that made my day as a photographer. It was 100% […]

Blessed Malaysia

Blessed again. After 15 years with doomed leaders. The last 5 years was the worst, watching the news and listening to the political dramas for almost every day was heart-wrenching … cringing without being able to do or say anything, helpless. The air suddenly feels pure again. The morning light today looks beautiful than usual. […]
