The Lotus

One last day to the New Year 2011! May I use it to extend my wishes to all friends, relatives and viewers a Happy New Year 2011 and may it bring to them evermore happiness, prosperity, health and also looking forward for more time and sharing together always.
A 'datuk' photographer friend has fascinations of taking photo of the lotus. He said the beauty and shape of this flower keep on changing and it bring deep sense of inspiration and wonder. No wonder there is to this day a worldwide fascination with flowers, inspiring both the poet and the novice. To many Asian cultures, the lotus symbolises purity and the growth of it's beauty, unsullied by the mud and slush of its origin. True enough, it is gorgeous to see how the beauty unfold itself and stand out elegantly from the rest with grace and fascination, wavering with it its thin tall stalk as the wind blow on them in the pond.

Get Moving & Shooting

That was actually what I did last week! Get moving and shooting. Went to attend CM leung's photography seminar in KL. During my free time went downtown to the twin towers around 4pm strolling and waited til 7pm until my daughter Judy called me to meet up as she was hungry:D. And tourist coming to me, while waiting, asking how I charge and want their picture to be taken.
CM leung at the seminar. You can see Cm enjoying and admiring his own slideshow. It was his first successful seminar in KL since setting his office here.The room was packed with about 40 people or so and they have to be seated on the floor.

Double Suprises!

Yes, it was a double surprises. One it was for their mother who is getting old and weak and need and hope her children would come visit her more often. The other was for Philip who operate a western cafe in Miri offering the best western cuisine and lamb shank in Miri the Australian style with Sarawak touch. Siew Min decided to throw them both a suprise by coming all the way from Sydney to tell her mother she is all in her heart and by action coming, flying over just to comfort and see her even if it burnt a hole in her pocket. And to her brother, Philip, it was his birthday that night. What a way to say Happy Birthday.

Portraits of the Penan

The looks and needs of the Penan people never stop me want to photo shoot more of their pictures to show anyone  and the world that they need us. Missionaries in the interior have been doing a fantastic job. Workers like this missionaries are scarce and we are praying for more willing aid workers to come in to improve their life. The kids were enthusiastic and always ready to welcome us to come to them more often. They really put up their best to impress us every time we reached them.They are teachable!

With bro.Hii, this little Penan girl put up a pose for this shot.

Remember seeing this little girl sing English lyric without having to refer to it. Good memorising skill she has there. Truly impressive.

Bidding farewell.
