Tawau Boy


Throwback 2007 – I went to Tawau for recce for Crossing Bridges. After going for few places for Crossing Bridges the Malaysian team decided to organize one in Malaysia and we decided on doing it in Tawau/Semporna/Maiga.

As part of the organizing team, I did a recon trip to Tawau. It was a good trip generally. The following photo shows a boy at a street market in Tawau. The photo was shot using Leica M8.

Another Orang Asli in Taman Negara


Another photo of the Orang Asli. Seen here is the guy who is chilling under a make shift house that they stay. If I remember correctly, there are nomads, hence they won’t be long at the same place at any one time. I remember, when we were headed here, we needed to take a boat here. Its not far from the river though.

I honestly think that I need to be fit again so that I can do more adventure to visit these kind of places in Malaysia and beyond. I just felt that I am not as fit as before.

Another take at Masjid Tengku Tengah Zaharah


Back in 2005, I made a visit to Kuala Terengganu as part of the Monsoon Cup. I can’t help it but stop at this mosque to capture the elegance of the mosque. Its amazing that I was able to find this mosque despite the fact that there wasn’t much adoption of Google and Google Maps at that point. I am quite sure if I was to turn back time, I would have planned it better.

I’ve covered this before on another throwback post here. Where the photo is as follows:

Today I decided to edit another set of those photos. Here is the new set. Doesn’t look as good as the one above though!

I can see that my camera was very dusty then. This was shot on D70 12-24mm.
