Kite Seller

One of the activity that one can do in Pantai Batu Buruk is to play kite! The last trip I was here back in 2005, I spent hours playing kite. It was really good fun. Photo above shows a kite seller behind his merchandise. The thing about shooting when the sun is up is that…

Kite Flying at Pantai Batu Buruk

Another photo from my Kuala Terengganu trip. The first day was really hot. In fact, I really thought that I will get sunburn out of this trip, but lucky enough, my skin was able to handle the battering from the sun. Though – this is not recommended! The photo above shows a kite flying in…

Morning Breakfast

Not far from the Noodle Factory – is the Kopitiam that the locals will have their breakfast. The time is not that early but I am surprised that there are not many people having breakfast here. I would have thought that there will be a lot more people here!

Public Housing

Some photos of the public housing in Chow Kit. This is in front of then South East Asia hotel, a place where my dad work. I still remember coming to this part of the world and go for some grocery shopping in Co-op super market. There is also this “shopping mall” called Keramat Supermarket. This…


Quick shoot to the trigger on the lady that’s walking towards me. I just went back to my car to drink rehydrate and there she saw me pointing the camera at her. I didn’t hear her shout and just click and moved away. Given the camera is silent, not drama there. Just a good snapshot…


This photo was shot at 7.45 am, but it did felt early because I left my house when it was dark. This photo shows an uncle reading thru the newspaper while sipping his favourite cup of coffee.

Lala Seller

While walking towards the market complex, I bumped into this lady that’s selling clams. I did know what she was selling until I zoomed in the photo during post-processing.Compared to the other markets I’ve been to in other countries, we don’t have many of this “makeshift” stalls. Nevertheless, we should not discriminate them as there…


As much as the Leica M Monochrom is a great camera with superb dynamic range. It won’t be able to defy the basics of digital photography. The top right hand corner of the photo is way over blown. I screwed up on the exposure. I should have been smart enough to average out the exposure…


Another one of my Chow Kit photo. Blurry as hell but I do like the composition. The guy was staring at me for a good five minutes after he had his puff! No choice, but I guess shoot him 🙂 He then moved away. So happen there was a bike there 😀

My Editing Workflow

I thought today I wanted to share my editing workflow. I’ve changed my workflow many times, and this is my latest workflow. As I generally shoot black and white now, the workflow is far more straightforward as I don’t need to worry about colours. Please ignore the number of photos that I have because I…

Sundry Shop
