Thaipusam 2015 Batu Caves - Shave & Shower

Happy CNY to you guys who still celebrating it especially "Bai Ti Gong" this Thursday. I still remember I can see a lot of huge fireworks that day. Okie this is the continuation of my Thaipusam 2015 @ Batu Caves photo post and this time I would like to feature moments captured at the riverside. Where you see people taking shower after shaved their head and get blessing from the god before carry a barrel of milk and going up hill to Batu Caves. Photos are captured using Nikon D800 and paired with Nikkor 85mm F1.8 or my #TCFisheye lens for the wide view~

9 Unanimous Thoughts When You Celebrate Chinese New Year In Melaka

Happy Chinese New Year 2015!!
Hey guys I would like to wish you all Happy Chinese New Year before the busy days start ahead. The internet speed in Melaka is kinda slow and I really miss Unifi now. Even when I watching the TV how I wish I can fast forward the 15 minutes long advertisement on 8TV. I guess this is a sign of getting used to convenient technologies for too long already. Luckily currently I have 2Mbps StreamyX at home now so streaming YouTube still won't be a problem.

Photowalk to Thaipusam 2015 Batu Caves [Part 2]: 272 steps to the top

Photowalk to Thaipusam 2015 Batu Caves [Part 2]: Kid's gorgeous big eyes

If you haven't read my first post about Thaipusam @ Batu Caves 2015, go read it now as these photo stories are connected. To get to the top of Batu Caves, everyone need to queue up in the jam-packed crowd and trying not to fall down or being suffocated (especially kids who join the queue). I believe we've spent at least an hour in the crowd just to reach the starting of the stairs. Apparently there are three rows of queue but only two passage available to go up. Therefore some of them shouted and complain as there were a few devotees who can't stand it and pass out. That was the time people around get even angrier and shout out even louder. That was the time the queue started to move a little bit faster.

Since we were stuck among packed crowd, there was nothing much to shoot as your eye view will be about people's head and it was hard to switch lenses. This time I use mainly the 8mm Samyang fisheye lens and Nikkor 85mm f1.8 prime lens. It is either you get wide scenery shoot or focus on something and blur out the background to make your object stand out.

I used to bring many lenses with me but knowing that I will need to climb the stairs, I left my heavy 70-200mm at home.  It was a good choice hahaha. Now please continue to scroll down and see what are the photos that I manage to take.

Photowalk to Thaipusam 2015 Batu Caves [Part 1]: Sit Female Coach for the first time


Thaipusam 2015 Batu Caves

Malaysia celebrate Thaipusam every year and it is always a grand festival in Batu Caves. Honestly, we ourselves as a Malaysian should go there at least once in a lifetime because tourist from oversea came all the way for this!! Since I am staying not that far from Batu Caves, so why shouldn't I go?

That's what I was thinking when Robin and friend asked if I wanna join the photowalk. Although it wasn't comfortable when you were stuck between the mountain of people, it was a great experience for me to understand more about Thaipusam and the culture in a very close distance.

We meet at KTM Tasik Selatan as early as 3am to avoid crowd and KTM service was available specially for Thaipusam season. The counter was closed and the gate was open, so we just went in the station without paying tickets for the first time. That was our first time sitting in the KTM female coach without worry of being starred or chased away by the ladies haha.

怡保清心嶺休闲文化村 Ipoh Qing Xin Ling Leisure & Cultural Village 

CNY is getting nearer and I guess most of you are busy finishing the work so that you can enjoy the CNY holiday right?? (that's what I am doing now trying to process more photos before I got caught up eating all the CNY cookie and get chubby). Today I just wanna share the video I've made about 怡保清心嶺休闲文化村 Qing Xin Ling Leisure & Cultural Village in Ipoh.

I am trying to post more travel video on my YouTube too along with my photo post because I know motion-pictures can tell better story in a way. So do watch the video below and leave a comment about what you think kay?? It was recorded using Samsung NX30 and I actually like the articulated screen as I know what was being recorded when I am doing the vlog of myself talking nonsense haha

If You Love Puppies You're Gonna Love This

cute puppies sleeping crawling looking for mom's milk
Happy Sunday everybody!! How's your weekend so far?? I've been slowly sorting out some backdated photos in my hard disk and definitely wanna share with you guys some cute puppies photos today. I am both cat and dog person but it seems like I got more fate meeting with the puppies haha.

I met these puppies in Ipoh last year and there were a bunch of them sleeping inside a small wooden house. The owner sprinkled some water because they were feeling hot yet stick to each other sleeping soundly. At first I was just taking photo of them sleeping but the owner were kind enough to let naughty me disturb their sleep and carry them out for a short sunbath and photo opp haha.

35 Photos of Jayesslee Asia Tour 2015 - Malaysia @ City Harvest

Jayesslee Asia Tour 2015 - Malaysia @ City Harvest


Courtesy of Teark Records and Nuffnang, I got to witness YouTube Musician Jayesslee,  the beautiful twins with angelic voice (which are now both mom) to perform live at City Harvest. At first I thought it will be inside a church but the set up inside there can definitely fit tons of people with great lighting for music showcase. I kinda like it =) 


I was sitting at the side and not convenient to move around hence kinda challenging to capture nice photos from this angle. Anyhow, I really enjoy their performance because Janice and Sonia are both very compatible on duet and that night they even invited Jordan and Shane (their babies) up on stage for a song or two. I can hear the crowd go "Awww~so cute" the whole time when the babies were on stage haha. That night Jayesslee did a lot of music cover ranging from classic to latest song by Taylor Swift, including K-Pop Taeyang's Eyes.Nose.Lips. Most importantly, they sang Officially Missing You in Malaysia's Asia Tour too!! Check out my YouTube for the video~


Since the lighting inside the hall was kinda dark, I've boosted my camera ISO to get most of the shots hence the photos looks a bit noisy. Anyway hope you guys will like these photos that I am gonna show below and videos that I've recorded during Jayesslee Asia Tour 2015 - Malaysia @ City Harvest.




[VIDEO] Jayesslee Asia Tour 2015 - Malaysia ft Baby Shane & Jordan

JAYESSLEE ASIA TOUR 2015 - Malaysia | Videos Highlight
Hey guys, since it is the weekend I bet you guys not ready for tons of photo in this post (actually is because I am still processing it), I shall share some video of Janice and Sonia a.k.a. Jayesslee who had performed in Malaysia together with their babies Shane and Jordan on stage. I've decided to take video instead of photos during that time because motion pictures can tell you the story better. 

Shane and Jordan are both so cute and Shane always smiling and hyped up the other day!! Other than that, some of the videos today are song sang by Janice and Sonia including Officially Missing You, Taeyang's Eyes.Nose.Lips, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star with Shane and Jordan, All of me, and so much more. So please watch the videos below and Like/Favourite when you do~

Happy weekend guys with their angelic voice ya! Take care!!

Thaipusam 2015 @ Batu Caves, Malaysia

Thaipusam 2015 @ Batu Caves, Malaysia


Holla guys, last few days were long holidays and where did you go to?? I was fortunate enough to have a bunch of photographer friends who "ajak" me for a photography outing at  Batu Caves for Thaipusam. I gotta say although this outing was kinda challenging when you are stuck inside the crowd who wanna go uphill, it is a must try experience especially if you are a Malaysian. 

I am currently processing client's wedding photos so I am not able to process these batch of photos yet. Maybe I shall skip more events so I have more time for Adobe Lightroom haha. If you have blogged about Thaipusam 2015 with many photos do leave your link at the comment section below so I can pay a visit.


Till then, get ready for a wonderful Wednesday peeps. Take care~

PS: Thanks Robin Wong and friends for the photography outing that day. Detailed photo post for Thaipusam will be out in future yo

10 Things To Do @ 清心嶺休闲文化村 Qing Xin Ling Leisure and Cultural Village


清心嶺休闲文化村 Qing Xin Ling Leisure and Cultural Village - If I never tell you about this new place which is hidden so well in Malaysia, you wouldn't know it is located in Ipoh instead of China. The other day when I was in Ipoh for the weekend, uncle and aunty brought me to explore this new place that they have heard of. At first I was hesitate to pay the RM4 entry fee to this place but after spending hours exploring this place, I kinda like it as it gave me the feel of getting so close to the nature and feeling peaceful at the same time. This could be the local version of The Banjaran Hotspring as their main selling point is beautiful mountain view with lakes and fish pond. You can do jungle tracking and definitely have many photo spots to take thousand of photos with the vintage themed elements in Qing Xin Ling.

Do continue scroll down to see what you can do at this new cultural village in Ipoh.
