The jewel of Semporna Sabah

For months I tried to find the excuse to re-visit my childhood hometown. Being born and raised during my teenage life in Tawau, Sabah, this place has a soft spot in my heart. I miss the food … I miss my old childhood friends and I miss talking in the Sabahan dialect too. This time […]

Reciprocal kindness in Kalash Valley

I hate the word ‘busy’. Oh … I have been busy, much busier than you (competing which each other on who is busier). For me, the word ‘busy’ is like an excuse … oh, I could not spend my precious time with you, as my dear you are not worth my time, I would rather […]

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.

Eid Fitr Mubarak 1439H/ 2018M

Now I understand the reason why writing will always make me feels good. I always wonder why does it feel good to pour your thought out for others to discover? It is an opportunity to be heard and it feels good to be heard. And the soul-nourishing month of Ramadhan has ended while the joyful […]

The air suddenly feels pure again. The morning light today looks beautiful than usual. […]

“If you can dream it, you can do it” I guess my theory is right, that u can just be anything and be anywhere that you want to be with a camera in your hand. I had another unforgettable moment just recently, circling Kuala Lumpur city centre particularly KLCC and KL Tower on a flying machine, […]

Still I Rise

It’s either that I don’t get enough sleep or cause of this mild flu that I had since a few days ago, my head felt like it’ll burst, a headache … better than a heartache, I hope so. Pretty busy these few days … writing and trying out something new. I am aiming for something […]

Secret Hideout in Kuala Terengganu

I found a new secret hideout in Kuala Terengganu, Terengganu, Malaysia. A simple, quiet and rusty place for an introvert soul, like mine … or let me rephrase it again, an OLD and worn out soul like mine. Lol … Selfish me, everything has to be like mine … mine all mine, no sharing and I do […]
