Canon Photomarathon 2012 - Photo Submitted

This is the second time I join Canon Photomarathon.

It's a great experience. I learn on how to move out from my comfort zone to capture photo in different perspective. 

Below are the three photo I submitted according to the theme. Comments and critics are most welcome.

Theme 1: "Rapid Mobility"

Theme 2: "Green Path of Civilization"

Theme 3: "Love"
I think I'll join again next year Canon Photomarathon.

Till then..

Eateries - That Little Gerai

I'm always up for a good food but not the kind that will hunt down all the eateries in the block.

I won't try the new eatery round the corner. I won't try the new dish that the eatery offer. I'm not that adventurous.

Generally, I'll be having my meal at the usual place. The shop that I'm comfortable with.

However if somebody give a recommendation, "Hey, let's have lunch at xxx, the food is so good!" I'm all set.

Thanks to Kerel, he generously bring me to this one little gerai located at AU5 nearby Taman Melawati.

They serve various western food and it taste good! I'll definitely give them a visit again.

Walk Around KLCC Park

I walked around KLCC park yesterday after work. I've been working in KLCC for more than two years now and frankly, this is the first time I ever walk in the park area.

The most I've ever reached before is the waterfront area. All these while, I only watched the park from above.

Below are photos outcome from the short walk. Managed to meet few nice people that are willing to let me take their photos with kids :-)

Swing Happy

Walk around the park won't be completed without the signature photo of the KLCC in night.

KLCC at Night

Not much photos that I can share here but I think it's just enough for a kickstart after the long hiatus :-)

Till then.

Teman Pengganti - Black & Malique

The meaning of this song is so deep. Really loves it.

The video also great. But the approach I would say not align with the message coming from the song. The producer could do better.

Aku kan pergi, bertemu kekasih abadi.
Tiba masanya kau cari teman pengganti.

Anyway, enjoy!

Apabila Kita Memerlukan

Minta derma di pejabat

Dekat pejabat ni secara purata, sekali dalam dua minggu akan sampai satu sampul surat minta derma dengan penerangan serba ringkas tentang bantuan yang diperlukan.

Sebulan, 2 sampul minta derma.
Setahun, 24 sampul minta derma.

Tapi, dalam kesemua yang mintak derma, semuanya Melayu. It cross my mind, "Melayu sahaja kah yang kesusahan? Orang Cina, India, lain-lain macam mana? Atau hanya orang Melayu saja yang suka mintak derma? Kenapa macam ni?"

Melayu dan keperihatinan

On another occasion, I've been to two sessions of agent briefing for unit trust and insurance. Purata juga menunjukkan yang orang Melayu kita ni tak berminat dengan benda-benda macam ni. Yang aku jumpa rata-rata adalah Cina. Dan kebanyakan statistik juga menunjukkan orang Melayu kita tak nampak faedah dua benda ni.

Aku pun macam tu jugak asalnya.

Memandang remeh

Everytime dapat marketing call yang cakap, "En, ada masa nak cakap?" terus aku akan reply, "Nak cakap pasal apa? Kalau insurance saya tak berminat." sebab aku tahu kebanyakannya memang pasal insuran

Aku sendiri rasa macam, "Alahaiii, insurance lagiiii. Takdak benda lain ka?"

Dulu aku rasa macam tu, sebab mmg aku rasa insurance tu macam tak ada faedahnya. Sekarang aku rasa macam tu sebab lain la pulak, sebabnya aku sendiri dah ada insuran with a good agent.

Pengalaman yang tak menarik

But somehow, aku pernah la accept insuran hayat offer daripada Maybank melalui phone. Bayaran lebih kurang RM50 sebulan. Tapi aku stop, sebab tak nampak benefitnya. Insuran hayat ni kalau aku mati, akan dapat pampasan untuk kemudahan ahli keluarga lain. The thing is, insuran melalui phone tu tak ada agent yang ambil berat dengan orang yang subscribe nya. Jadi maksudnya kalau aku mati, sapa nak buat claim? Mana la orang lain tahu kan. Sebab itu la aku stop.

But then bila dah ada agent sekarang ni, they'll follow up our condition and manage it for us. That is convenience.

Kenapa dan mengapa?

Kenapa aku akhirnya ambil jugak insuran sekarang ni? Kenapa nak insuran?

Dulu, beberapa sebab membuatkan aku tak nak ambil insuran (medical insurance, life insurance):
  • The company has provided. Alhamdulillah, the company that I work with has provided a very good benefit for medical.
  • Alhamdulillah I haven't been into major condition that warrant me to spend money. Walaupun ada, yes the company will provide that coverage.
  • Tak perlu nak beratur panjang gi hospital kerajaan (tak rasa kesusahan), even masa kecik pun my dad is covered by the company he work with. Tak pernah sakit teruk.

Sekarang, ada beberapa sebab aku dah subscribe untuk plan insuran
  • Malang tidak berbau. Teringat aku pada kejadian yang menimpa a close friend. He did mentioned that, luckily he had his insurance covered. Sebab masa tu dia baru tukar kerja, dan kerja baru tak cover medical or some sort.
  • Sampai bila nak berharap company tanggung all those benefit? Sampai bila nak kerja dengan company sama?
  • Paling penting, sooner or later nanti masa dah pencen memang tak ada all those benefit lagi.
  • Kalau nak tunggu tua baru subscribe for insurance akan mahal, dan bila ada penyakit, kebanyakan insuran tak terima permohonan untuk insurance coverage.
  • Masa muda la paling sesuai untuk nak start insurance coverage.
Harapan dan nasihat

Jadi secara jujurnya, aku harap korang ada bantuan yang secukupnya bila di saat yang paling memerlukan. Aku tak nak tengok ada sampul surat korang meminta derma. Don't get me wrong. Aku orang pertama yang akan memberikan bantuan jika ada, tapi I hope that is not the case.

Pertama, aku harap tak ada sampul minta derma sebab korang semua sihat tidak ada musibah yang menimpa InsyaAllah.

Kedua, aku harap dengan post ni aku mampu meyakinkan korang yang insuran itu penting untuk masa depan and it's necessity. It's a backup plan. I hope this is the best help that I can provide to all of you, an advice.

Bla bla bla .. Insurance lagiiii...

No, I'm serius. Dead serious. If you already subscribe to one, good for you. If you are still not, PLEASE find for one now!

p.s. Apa aku membebel nih ...
p.s. If you don't know where to start, Just let me know. I can help you with that.

A lot of things resolves around us everyday. How many really matters?

What if you don't get to go to that weddings?
What if you don't get to go to that concert?
What if you don't get to see that one football match?
What if you don't get enough sleep? Or maybe you sleep one hour less on that day, or one hour more?

Does it really matters?

How will it really impact your life in coming year? 5 years? 10 years?

Generally, life doesn't really matters, much. Just a small part of it does and we really do not know which.

That's the kind of decision that we have to make, everyday.

For many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. That's what Pareto said.

So the question is, which 20% of your daily activities does really count for today? That's account for only 4.8 hours.

I'll take my sleep.

p.s. Lately I've seen a lot of people trying to convince that "Money is not everything but everything needs money". My reply, "Maybe not, you don't have to pay for dreaming". That's only one of it. Really, "Money is not everything." Period.

Sitting here day by day make my mind numb. Retarded one might say.

I've lost critical thought, even in the job description requires me to do so.

It's only by definition, the reality is everything being dictated, decided. You're an executive, just freaking execute whatever given to you.

This is not what is expected out of you, but this is how it's being enforced on.

And how is this suppose to be progressive?

p.s. "I believe .. what doesn't kill you, simply makes you .. stranger"

Yesterday late night, I've had a conversation with mom, update about how quite a number of my business initiatives doesn't turn out that good.

The conversation get to a good point, "Don't overdo it. If we've tried and it doesn't turn out as plan, that's really not meant for us."

Destiny. Always have his way to intervene.

But I'm not just gonna give up. There is just so much more and I'm not done yet.

Yeah, it might not meant for me just yet.


ps. Keropok keping murah murah..

Engagement Shima & Faiz

I can't remember when was the last time that I really enjoy shooting a wedding or engagement. This one sure with a lot of fun.

It's just a simple engagement but she is totally gorgeous. During the day, this is one of her side that most of her friends never see before.

I bet her wedding will be a lot more fun. Can't wait for the day. But for the mean time, enjoy this first. :)

Ideas, Scribbling and Notes

Ideas come only once in a while. When it's gone, it's gone.

I think a lot,
I scribe a lot,
I draw a lot,
I design a lot,

But all of it at different places and different medium.

Sometimes, I do keep what I scribe in a secure place, properly. But most of the times, all the ideas just lost in a pile of papers or worse in the dustbin.

It's a waste.

There are quite a few times that something I've thought last time cross over my mind again, but I only remember vaguely all the things that I've scribbled previously. Trying to dig my treasure just to confirm that it's nowhere to be found.

Sad, that I have to think it over. The thinking process has to start over, another waste of time and the precious insight that might never be seen again.

This is my first moleskine. I hope everything can be put together. Safe and sound. Maybe a masterpiece can be retrieve easier next time.

Custom Album - Engagement Shima & Faiz

I love to take photos but I'm kind of lazy to make an album. It took a lot of effort to even complete one. So, this is my first official custom album printed. Engagement album my friend during Uni time.

To see the output in front of you, it's a wonder.

Hopefully we can make it to somewhere this year.

Friends' Weddings

I've attended quite a number of weddings in the past months. Only a few that I have captured them in picture as a memory. The rest? Maybe because I'm just pure lazy or the condition doesn't permit to.

Since I'll be attending a few more weddings in coming weeks and I think there'll be more photos to capture, here goes the previous weddings photos. Hope you like it!

Life, How I See It At The Moment

My last post just a short one about the return of my camera from repair. Since then, lot of things has changed.


Let's take a look what left of the camera.

  1. I've sold off my SB900 speedlight.
  2. Also sold off 18-200mm lens.
  3. Left with D300 body & 50mm lens.
  4. And beloved Manfrotto & Canon tripod.
Hurm, I think that should be just enough to take a good quality of picture for the time being. Sold the 18-200mm because aren't satisfied with the image quality. Yes it might be very useful for the whole range of zoom, but I can't be bothered anymore with the zoom. I just can't stand to see bad quality of image being taken with it.

As of for the speedlight, day after day it's hardly comes into good use. Might as well put it off first before the price dropping further. I found the love for natural light even more. That doesn't mean my purchase comes to a waste. I learned a lot about lighting when it's around. Something that I won't somewhere else.


But then, things that has changed are not just camera, also life as a whole. Priority, responsibility, hobby, interest and so much more.

Take a look at the ticker at Mari Et Femme, it's been a good 1 year & 4 months of being married. It surely are not the same as before.

Before married, I consider myself as one of the particular person in managing self. But at some point of time, it seems that I've quite lost at managing self. Perhaps because of the excessive gaming.

Alhamdulillah, it's never to late to realize things. Hope I can rearrange everything back to track. Because something BIG is coming. 


Currently, I'm learning to play guitar. I do feel good to be able to learn playing guitar properly. It's been in the wishlist since forever.

And few things that I wish I could spend more time on
  • ibadah
  • exercise, sports
  • racing simulation (cars)
  • photography (capture, editing)
