Last weekend I did a trip to Kuala Sepetang because I thought I wanted to eat cockle. The last trip I did to Kuala Sepetang was couple of weeks ago in which I went for motorcycle trip up north to Penang. A friend of mine introduce me to this place called Restoran Tepi Sungai (Restaurant By The River).
The restaurant it self is on a platform above the river mouth, along the mangrove coast of Kuala Sepetang or better known as Port Weld. It was a short trip and I did not do any food photography. It was mainly a food trip to eat dinner. I did however took a few pictures when I was walking out of the restaurant. One of these days I should make a trip there and go for some street shooting. It does look like a nice place to shoot.
Here are some photos that I took…
The location of Kuala Sepetang is as follows, click on the link to head over there!
The other stuffs thats famous there are charcoal factory and prawn mee. Which I’ve never been to both!
Still no idea where this is, but its definitely in New York. Looking at my old photos, definitely making me feeling like going for a holiday again in New York. It is such a cultured place in which there’s a lot of things that we can do, eat and see. Definitely not good for the artery!
Back in 2008, I went for a very long holiday. 3 weeks in total. In fact the original plan was for me to go for 2 weeks, but I decided to extend for another week because it was really good and 2 weeks was just not enough. My life was so much different then. I had everything more in order, and disappearing for 3 weeks was not difficult at all.
In addition to that, data roaming was not a norm, as such going on holiday is so much more fun as I am completely disconnected from the life at home. And I could enjoy my break so much more. Maybe I should do that again during my next break. Digital detox!
On Sunday – I went out for a walk. After a heavy brunch and Sangeetha, needed to walk off all the calories. Thank god I brought out my camera 🙂 Its one of those rare Sunday afternoon that I took my camera out. Partly due to the fact that I wanted to shoot more photos. I have not been using my camera much, thus bringing it out will push me to use it more often, rather than keeping in on my table (not even in a drybox, since my drybox died!).
The following photo above is the Malaysian Flatiron, located not far from Petaling Street (Chinatown), few steps away from Pasar Karat. No idea what the significance of Pasar Karat though. Perhaps I need to do a bit more research.
The photo below is the original Flatiron. Shoot this photo back in 2008 – when I went to New York for a holiday. One of those days that I took 3 weeks off to spend hell a lot of money and ate hell a lot of food!
Obviously – not so the same, but almost the same 🙂 I guess given how small is the Malaysian Flatiron, the narrowest corner is definitely not usable 🙂
It has been quite a few weeks since I wrote anything on my blog. I have been occupied with work and drawing. And now I guess I need to tell myself to write more so I am motivated to take pictures and also draw more. Whenever I write anything on my blog, I do feel inspired to think about different things in life. And in this case, I do feel like going out there to shoot.
Its a weekend again, and I have decided that I am not going to ride out today as I wanted to spend sometime with family and friends as next weekend I am going for a weekend adventure to Penang with another group of friends.
The other thing, this weekend I managed to activate my Lightroom CC – which is a cloud enabled Lightroom that enable me to access my Lightroom catalog from anywhere and everywhere. Which effectively allow me to edit my photos whether on my laptop or my phone. It doesn’t really matter. Which is good. I need to shoot more and make a good use of my camera.
The photo attached in the featured is a photo that I took with my Leica M9 – back in the days when I was using a rangefinder. It shows an aunty preparing some wanton noodle or something. I didn’t eat that as I don’t eat pork. I only go there for coffee. My friends definitely had a good time eating the noodle there. The place shot is in Batu Arang. I have gone there so many times to shoot as well as to fly drone.
I guess that’s it from me today 🙂
