20 Cool Things I Did in Year 2014 & My New Year Resolution

Mabul Island - Sun Sand Sea

Today is the day that most people gonna look back at what they did for year 2014 and celebrate NYE with friends and family. Well, mine one special a bit as I am celebrating my birthday as well!! This post gonna be a throwback post of what I did in 2014 and what I wanna do more in year 2015. (which is starting tomorrow)

Thanks for everyone who drop by this space and continue grow with me and I really hope that I manage to inspire you in any way which is positive and beneficial for you guys haha. Now let see what are the top 20 things that I am happy that I did in 2014:

1. Being able to capture precious moments during Lee Kwang Soo Showcase in Malaysia is a big fun thing to do especially when you are working closely and meeting with one of the funniest people in this world. Without KwangSoo existence in the recent Running Man Race Start Season 2 in Malaysia, everything won't be that fun haha.  Read more here

2. My first time flying with a helicopter to Danau rural area for doing good deeds with Astro Kasih. Went there as a photographer and videographer to do coverage for their CSR program. Kinda happy that Astro and employees+volunteers building school for better future for the kids. Read more here

3. Manage to shoot for one of my favourite music band has somehow came true this year. Sodagreen - the group that is unique with each and every member in it. Shooting concert is as challenging as shooting wedding, just that you will have your performance guest remain around the stage area. I know it is hard to make a fortune shooting for concert but I still hope that in year 2015 I can shoot more concert when the condition is right. I shall work with people who love photo arts and appreciate what we photographer do for living.  Read more here.

4. Being able to be small part of the blockbuster movie "The Journey 一路有你" is one happy thing that happen this year. I am happy that this movie has created new record for Malaysia movie industry and hope my little movie review and reporting helps in some way. This was captured when we went to Redbox SingK celebrate together haha Read more here

5. This year I got myself a diving licence at Mabul Island. It won't be possible without friends who wanna get the licence together. Mabul Island is a beautiful place to be, you should be there at least once in a lifetime!! Imagine sea turtle pay visit to your place every morning at the lodge. Hopefully I can capture more underwater moment with proper camera gear next year =) Read more here

6. Shhh...Listen! - Been always looking for talented musician in Malaysia and I am glad to know Shelhiel, ShioYee, JunShyan, Chrystina and more people through them this year.
