Anyway, tonight I would like to share some photos taken during the official night of 18th European Union Film Festival in Malaysia @ GSC Pavilion Kuala Lumpur.

Xiaomi Mi A1 Review (Malaysia) - Dual-Camera & Photo Sample

Review-Xiaomi Mi A1 (Malaysia) Review - Dual-Camera & Photo Quality
【Review】 Xiaomi Mi A1 (Malaysia) Review - Dual-Camera and Photo Quality

Hello guys, as a DSLR photographer myself, I do like to try out new gadget gears especially when smartphone nowadays has better camera and they help us capture good photos in split seconds. Sometimes I don't want to bring along my heavy DSLR too, hence I always try new smartphone with dual-camera and this time. Instead of getting the Xiaomi 6, I have a unit of Xiaomi Mi A1 Smartphone with Dual-Camera to play with. I believe you guys are here, because you are as curious as I am regarding the Mi A1 camera and photos quality and also whether Android One OS is really good without the MIUI. 

What does Android One means?

With software designed by Google, Android One phones have access to Google's premiere security features, applications and innovations on your phone, such as free unlimited high quality storage with Google Photos.

【Review】Samsung Galaxy Note8 Dual-Cam Live Focus in Studio Photoshoot



As a photographer, dual-camera smartphone is already a must especially if you don't want to carry your DSLR around. Any new and upcoming smartphone with just one camera might find it hard to compare to phone with two 'eyes'. Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the first Samsung phones with two cameras (dual cameras) hence it will able to create the blur background image (we call it bokeh) with the combination of Wide Angle Lens and Zoom Lens. Just like the iPhone 7 Plus and certain Huawei smartphone.

Now the question is, "Is Samsung Note 8 Dual Camera better than other dual-cam smartphone out there?" Just recently I was invited for Samsung Note 8 Mobile Photography Workshop by Michael Yeoh. That's where I got my first hand experience on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 even before it launch in Malaysia.  


 PS: Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is going to launch in Malaysia on 21 Sep 2017 with Song JiHyo making special appearance at Pavilion KL!

【HIPPIE CAFE】 - The Hidden Gem In Kepong Jinjang Utara

Hippie Cafe - The Hidden Gem @ Jinjang Utara

【Hippie Cafe】 - The Hidden Gem @ Jinjang Utara

Other than the beautiful FRIM Kepong, I seldom go there. But there's this nice hipster cafe hidden in Kepong township that I would like to share with you, it's called the "Hippie Cafe". It was well hidden on top of the mini Tesco Express Jinjang Utara.  Initially I didn't see the cafe because the entrance was at the side of Tesco Express.

However, the moment I went upstair, it shows a different view. There are wall-arts all around the corner and what attracted me are the lighting and wheels-shape clocks installed at the interior. Since I was hungry, I went to the counter and ordered their Curry Spaghetti and a green tea. 

HIPPIE CAFE Kepong Jinjang Utara Curry Spaghetti

There was only me in the cafe with a few youngsters at the kitchen.  It took them a while to prepare my meal but I understand why when I saw my Curry Spaghetti. It looks very neat and my usual photography habit tell me to photograph it.

Takumi Saitoh 斎藤工 at Japanese Film Festival 2017


"Matinée idol SAITOH Takumi 斎藤工 set hearts aflutter as he graced the launch of the 14th Japanese Film Festival at GSC Pavilion KL on 5th September 2017. Highly in demand with 40 movies and 28 television shows to his credit, the former model-turned-actor was in town for a meet-and-greet session with fans as well as to present a special preview of his directorial debut, 映画『blank13』2018.2.3公開. Takumi also attended the opening ceremony later the same evening, with him back in front of the camera for a supporting role in festival curtain-raiser 'The Projects' (映画『団地』)." - The Japan Foundation, Kuala Lumpur

Courtesy of Golden Screen Cinemas, I was there to capture and document down the happening moments during Japanese Film Festival 2017 Opening Ceremony at Pavilion KL. There were lots of fans who were early and queuing up for "Blank13" screening. I can see why because major of them were there to meet the handsome Taukumi Saitoh in person. Undeniable Takumi Saitoh has that attractive charisma that not only attract girls. I am impressed with how Takumi keep his youth and he is really tall in person.  All right I shall talk lesser and let the pictures speak for itself. Hope you guys like it. Especially Saitoh Takumi's fans =)

PS: Let me know if you guys have Takumi Saitoh official FB Page or other social media page so I can link it here. I only found Takumi Saitoh's official webpage.

How To Get The Best Memory Card For Your Camera & Save Money

How To Get The Best Memory Card For Your Camera & SAVE MONEY

How To Get The Best Memory Card For Your Camera and Save Money

Hey guys, today I am sharing a quick tips on how to get the right memory card for your camera and drone, and how to save money by purchasing it online at the same time! As you can see from above, there are many different types of memory card for your camera. Different camera has different memory card requirement hence you really need to get the right memory card or else it will slow down your shooting experience.

I was once using a slow card (slow writing and reading speed lower than Class 10) on my DSLR and the buffering time affect the amount of thing I can capture in that limited time. Hence I missed capturing some precious moment that time and I regret that...

How To Get The Right Memory Card For Your Camera gopro drone and save money

Get the Sandisk Ultra Class 10 SDHC Memory Card  (Silver color) If...

To make it simple, if your camera device can't capture 4K video, it is enough to get a memory card with Class 10 (C10) written on it. You will able to see the number "10" on it. Usually 32GB is enough for daily usage for your camera. Unless if you want to save more videos then you may go for the 64GB version.


How To Get The Right Memory Card For Your Camera gopro drone and save money

Get the Sandisk Extreme SDXC UHS-I Memory Card (Gold color) If...

If your camera device can capture 4k image/video. You should really have this gold color Sandisk Extreme Memory Card to prevent slow performance of your device. GoPro Action Cam, DJI drone and of course mirrorless camera that can shoot 4K video, they all should use this gold color memory card to make sure the device can operate up to their original standard.

What if I got the slower card for 4K Recording Device?

You can still use the card, just that it might slow down your capturing action, longer buffering and waiting time before you can view the image especially when you are shooting RAW or high-resolution images. Even when you use slower card on GoPro that record 4K, you can notice the major difference in video start-up time and sometimes will occur error in recording.

So in conclusion, get the higher speed card if your device can record 4K images/video footage. It could be more expensive but definitely worth it in long run.

Dara Independence Beach Resort & Spa with Infinity Pool Jouvence Spa at Sihanoukville Cambodia

Dara Independence Beach Resort & Spa | Sihanoukville, Cambodia


Dara Independence Beach Resort & Spa (or more well known as Independence Hotel) was the hotel that I stay when I first visit Sihanoukville, Cambodia. I know nothing about Sihanoukville until I googled about this place. To be honest, nothing much can be found through online, and I was depending on Trip Advisor recommended "things to do" with mostly beach attractions on their page.

Today I would just like to talk about Dara Independence Beach Resort & Spa and my twonights stay experience over there.  I was first attracted by the pictures of their new infinity pool and can't wait to check out this hotel. Overall, it was a comfortable stay with great Seafood Dinner @ Sunset Restaurant, super relaxing oil massage at their Jouvence Spa located within Independence Hotel. I must not forget to mention their real beautiful infinity pool located right at the coastal line where you can see beautiful sunset.

Chinese Wedding ROM at Thean Hou Temple 天后宫
ROM at Thean Hou Temple 天后宫

I have been to Thean Hou Temple a few times but this was the first time I photograph friend's Registration of Marriage (ROM) at this signature tourist location right in Kuala Lumpur. Thean Hou Temple was built by the Hainanese in order to commemorate the Goddess of Thean Hou. The Thean Hou Temple is one of the largest Chinese temple in South East Asia and was officially opened on 3rd September 1989. 

Chinese Wedding ROM at Thean Hou Temple 天后宫

How to go to Thean Hou Temple?


Actually the best way is to drive there with Waze traffic guide. But if you are taking the public transport, regardless of LRT or KTM line, none of the stations is within walking distance from Thean Hou Temple. The best way is through taxi. You can first take the KTM to Mid Valley station or by LRT to Bangsar station. Then take the taxi through GRAB or UBER to reach this Chinese Temple.

Sungnyemun Gate At Night
During my trip to Seoul for 2017 Asian Cultural Young Leaders' Camp, Sungnyemun Gate is one of the building structure that caught my eyes the first time I saw it. This traditional building structure is located right in the middle of the modern city with car and buses pass by from time to time. Took the above picture while crossing the zebra line as that's the best spot to present the beauty of this Korea's National Treasure.

We went to this book store with Rano, Khulan and OgiaI was amazed with what I saw and feel in here. The reading vibes is pretty strong here consider it is a weekday and night time. Check out the photos below and I can assure you it worth a visit.

There's only one problem in this place, 90% of the books are in Korean so we spent most of our time in the International book corner hahaha. For more information about Kyobo Book Store, visit

It is only an excuse if I keep saying I am busy to update my blog. So here it is! A quick photo post with the photos I took during Megadeth Concert Live in Malaysia 2017 at Stadium Negara. This is consider as my very first official metal band concert photograph assignment too. Thanks to IMEAsia I've got to understand this music and the special privilege to photograph Megadeth and the band members who. Most of the fans come in dark color outfit with that sense of metal band hence I did took my chance to capture some of their outfit too. One thing that I've learned, it's not just Malay that love rock band. 

It was challenging to photoshoot Megadeth concert as the swift and constant changing concert lights makes it hard to find the right focus and shooting mode. I was using Aperture mode and ISO ranging from 800-2000 to adapt to the environment. Thankfully my DSLR didn't disappoint me =D



Malaysia local band Massacre Conspiracy did the opening for Megadeth Live in Malaysia concert so I shall start with their photos right after the awesome Megadeth fans who has been waiting in front of the stadium since 5pm. Check out the photos below:

【蒲种工厂咖啡馆 - JWC创意咖啡 装潢室内设计有电梯】

蒲种开了间新的双层咖啡馆 - The Depot (11) by JWC,坐落在宁静的工业区,周围宁静而且停车方便。室内设计蛮具特色且宽阔,接近绿林的咖啡吧台,六角桌最为抢眼,店内也有昂贵的Luwak咖啡,目前是一家咖啡得奖不少的咖啡馆。由于当晚去的时候已经不早了,所以只点了杯热巧克力,Latte,花茶,千层蛋糕与雪糕奶油华夫饼

JWC是一家有电梯的咖啡馆,所以方便带家人来尝试新东西。若你是喜爱咖啡的夜猫子,你应该会喜欢这里的。晚上看见有顾客带自己的笔电做自己的事,或者开个小型分享会。那晚的千层蛋糕感觉放太久了,所以没Nadeje的那么好吃。不过热巧克力蛮香浓的,个人蛮喜欢。华夫饼加上雪糕本该很好吃,可是他们把雪糕放在切片牛油上,导致牛油变硬了,吃起来感觉有点不妥。
服务生不是很多,但是招待我们的女生很体贴,也帮我们花茶加了很多次的热水。这一点有加分。菜单方面字体有点渺小,老人家可能看不到哈哈哈。若下次有机会尝试到它其他各式各样的得奖咖啡,我再跟你们分享吧!!毕竟过了6点喝咖啡还真的不容易睡着哦。

如果喜欢甜点的,可以尝试Sizzling Brownie。JWC也有All Day Breakfast哦~

[Review] Redmi Note 4 - Budget Smartphone with Long Battery Life


[Review] Redmi Note 4 - Budget Smartphone for Parents

[Review] Redmi Note 4 - Budget Smartphone for Parents


After two months using this Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, I can finally give my opinion on this RM799 Smartphone. I've using Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge for a long time and had initial perception that Redmi Note 4 might not be up to par or feeds my need. After using it for quite some time, I would say Redmi Note 4 might not be suitable for extreme and high performance usage, but the specs provided is good enough for daily usage and I was quite amazed with the long battery life.


Currently Malaysia has two variant of Redmi Note 4: 3GB 32GB and 4GB 64GB version priced at RM949 (RM150 extra)

Prettiest Milky Way in Malaysia (Tioman Island) #TCTravel 


I was writing a phone review for Redmi Note 4 today and noticed that I shall take a break before complete it. Hence came up with this 1 minute video of a random night (not so random) in Tioman Island Malaysia.

Many people thought that one can only see the milky way oversea. Little did they know that you can see the milky way as long you are looking at the sky at the right season with no light pollution around you. 

I can say I was lucky to spot this milky way in the middle of the night. I put my camera outside for timelapse photography at 12.30am and went back to the room for a nap. A 5 minutes nap turned into a few hours sleep and I suddenly jumped out of the bed around 5am in the morning.

这部100% 槟城取景的全马首部福建电影《海墘新路》是导演苏忠兴的半自传故事,同时也是导演首部中文影片。在此之前,苏导曾执导多部马来电影,其中包括获奖无数的《金山公主》(Puteri Gunung Ledang)

个人观后感
最先打动我要看这部电影的,是它的主题曲 《感谢你》。那天我去看了媒体首映,大概了解戏里的福建话(还好有字幕subtitle), 而且在仓促的时间下没办法细细品尝电影的一点一滴,不过最让我印象深刻的角色有Sunny的妈妈,年轻的Grace,还有Sunny和姐姐之间的大对白。现在趁假期得空回想起,这一部电影其实想传达导演的故事,借此电影而得到一种解脱或释怀。这部电影也表达父母对孩子无私的爱,但孩子可能需要一段时间,长大了,人生历练多了,才能了解父母当时为什么会这么做。

我个人看了是没有哭啦,因为没有与故事产生共鸣(可能我的生世没那么悲惨与戏剧化)。如果你想更了解这部电影,我建议你先去看 The Making of You Mean The World To Me 海墘新路,再踏入戏院观赏这部电影。

You Mean The World To Me (The Making Of)


“家庭就是我们的一切,虽然我们没办法选择它,甚至很多时候我们嫌弃它,但是亲情是一种很复杂的爱。我们恨我们家人的原因,通常都是我们自己的一部分。你恨它如同你恨自己一样。 

一个如此简单的事情,却花了很长时间才能明白,我们四处奔波,却只有一个永远不会离开我们的 叫做故乡”
“You hate it because you see it in yourself and you don't like that in yourself either”

对于戏被列为18禁,然后有些部分被剪片了,造成故事传达方面没那么完整。有机会的话,希望在摄影节或其他平台能看到完整版。最后,还是要赞一下EvanChin秦顺薏在戏里的演出。没什么对白,用眼神表情就能说故事。很厉害一下 =)

其实我还有一个疑问,为什么Sunny不跟他的好友Chye借钱拍电影呢?而且电影里Sunny表面上不和Chye做朋友,但私底下和Chye是很要好的,感觉有个隐约的message要被表达出来。

“世界上最难去爱的人  最需要被爱”

【文青咖啡館】 從位於雞場街青雲亭附近的小店搬遷至三寶井的現址,Locahouz一直維持著屬於自己的調調。在有故事的老房子裡,陽光透過天井照入屋內,以藝術作品及輕音樂裝飾點綴,特色主食、小吃與咖啡、飲料成了店裡最大的主角。此外,在正規菜單之外,週末常常會推出驚喜隱藏菜單,讓人眼前為之一亮。


特別喜歡他們在食物與飲料上的用心。其實菜單上的選擇並不算太多,但在食材上的搭配和mix & match卻往往讓人患上選擇困難症。飲料則讓喜歡嘗試各種新風味的食客有更不一般的選擇。有時間的話,特別推薦在週末早晨來走一遭,在老房子裡吃上一頓早午餐,開啟假日美好一天。

"Asian Three-Fold Mirror 2016: Reflections" made its way to Malaysia earlier this month with a Malaysian premiere at GSC Mid Valley on 21 April, 2017. There was a Special Screening open to public follows on 22 April. This event was organized by Japan Foundation Asia Center & Japan Foundation Kuala Lumpur

What's Asian Three-Fold Mirror project ?
This Asian Three-Fold Mirror project brings together three globally acclaimed directors from Asia to co-create omnibus films with a common theme.The directors portray people living in Asia from their own viewpoints and project the society and culture of their own countries, like a three-fold mirror. These films have been produced with an aim to deepen mutual knowledge, understanding and empathy, and to provide opportunities to explore the Asian identity and ways of living. The project framework requires the directors to include a character who is connected in some manner to another Asian country, and to shoot on location in an Asian country. The rest is left to each director's unique style.The omnibus series will have its world premiere at the Tokyo International Film Festival, followed by presentations at other major film festivals around the world.

It was a fun two-days event that I got to cover and photograph the event at the same time. During the Malaysian Premiere of "Asian Three-Fold Mirror 2016: Reflections", Director Isao Yukisada attended the screening to present "Pigeon", his piece of the multi-part anthology along with main actress Sharifah Amani as well as co-producers Woo Ming Jin and Edmund Yeo.

Right after the movie, Edmund Yeo presented us "Yasmin san", a behind-the-scenes documentary of "Pigeon" , which I enjoyed watching.
