His big day
Monday, February 16, 2015 || 5:10 pm
The day my king got older and i got a car to drive him around. It was very fulfilling, we get to explore Sungei Buloh, to the old cemetry where his old ones were there, it looks well maintained despite being buried in a deserted spot compared to the newer ones. I like the peaceful ambience of the surroundings.
We managed to explore the roads of lim chu kang, passing by jln bahtera etc Passing by such roads, makes me reminisce the times i went for camps during my childhood days. It was probably one the best times of my life because i truly enjoy being in the outdoor and bonding with the strangers.
Now, at this stage in my life, no more campings..so i resort to going for holidays! hehe.
Explored lim chu kang, brought us to west coast where we were supposed to dine at the hawker centre but i couldn't really figure out on how to go and so we ate at the plaza as Pa was already cranky and famished. -,- His withdrawal symptoms is really bad! :((
The next stop, we went is at seah imm because my sis was craving for the pad thai..As for me, had light dinner then, we proceeded to the indoor stadium. My intention was to stop at tanjung rhu but i didnt turn at the right road, so, it leads me to the other part, closer to the new national stadium. A nice place to sit and chill. Indeed, they built a new shopping centre just beside the stadium.
Ma being herself, upon seeing ntuc in the mall, did some grocery shopping. And..that wasn't the last stop. Ending off the day at Rubinah as Pa was feeling hungry, again. -;- Me on the either side, still felt full from dinner and so, i went somewhere else with my babes while waiting for my folks to dine. Done with their supper, we went home, like finally. hehe.
So that's how i fully utilize a day of having a car.
Pre Wedding of Amy & Elfe
Friday, February 06, 2015 || 1:19 pm
Few weeks back, B accompanied me to recce this pretty place for a photoshoot session of amy&elfe. It's true that prettier places are hard to reach without a transport. That being said, the urge for me own one is so strong. Not just for own personal use but also for such situation, when conducting shoots etc.
Either me or fil has to have one soon...
Somehow, for some location, it's easier when travel by bike than car. Reason being, car, have to consider on where to park etc As for bike, it's not so much of an issue. Nevertheless, thank god that so far for all the shoots i've covered, there's not much issues on going to the desired location.
For this couple, in which the guy loves motorbike, he decided to have a pre wed shoot along with his big baby. It was fun. I had fun, going from one spot to another. It was my first time shooting with this theme and i'm still exploring how to make it better. I didn't really have proper gadgets when shooting in the dark thus, i resorted to using what i have.
Thank you to dear B for helping me out. hee. He was being very helpful bringing me around, becoming the lightman for the day, wish i could have more lights to captures the features of the bike in the dark. Well, atleast, this experience have given me exposure on what to take note of and the kind of effects that i could or want to achieve at the end of the day.
For this couple who's been together for few years, chemistry was already there. Thank you for trusting me to shoot for the day. Till then, best wishes and insyallah we'll see again on the big day.
Oh, so if any of you are interested to engage me as your photographer, do fb search me at :

My prayers been answered
Friday, January 30, 2015 || 1:24 pm
Ever since that day you went it, every night, my prayers goes out to you. Today, finally, is the day. After this, i hope this will make an impact in your life as well as ours. What i realised is that we've been taking for granted of what been given to us all this while. Health is the number one issue that can't be bought by money.
Sickness, it can strike anyone and anytime. That goes the same for death as well. Sometimes, there are no specific reason as to how or why one is striked by certain illnesses. I guess, these are all from the almighty. I'm sure certain people are chosen for a reason. A healthy man today can fall terribly ill the next day or even passed away. Life is so unpredictable and fragile in so many ways. Yet, we always have this mindset that we have a long way to go or we thought being healthy permits us to live longer. This might not necessarily be true.
I've witnessed enough to realised that death may strike anytime. It comes to a realisation that for all these health and wealth that has been given to us, by none other than almighty, there's only one way to say thank you, pray. Pray not just to thank for all the blessings, pray for courage, strength and believe in miracles of prayers.
That being said, that fateful day, i did something that was done when i was small. This pair of hands starts to feed the one who fed me till i'm able to feed myself. That touched me so deeply that i've realised that now is the time to take over their position. I need to be more observant, sensitive and give more of what i can. These few days, been tough on us. I'm not sure why but i felt so drained. Not that i did much physical work but i guess it's more of emotionally drained. It's tough when something happens and we all have to start adapting to sudden changes. It takes sacrifices and commitment.
I shall end off with expressing much gratitude and love to the ones who raised me up and showering me with never ending love.
Always in my prayers.
i love you.
He breathe, he collaspe and i'm here, praying

It hasn't been good. It came one after another. The loss, the failure, the despair, the courage needed and the prayers we hope for.
Sad to say, life is gloomy on my side as for now. All i can do is praying for the best. For the weak to be given strength. For the heartbroken to be saved. For the love to rejoice. For the feeling of angst, to fade. For it to subside and return as per normal.
And more scarry than ever, due date is around the corner. Plus, an upcoming shoot. I need to sort out my schedule and time management.
Get well soon, with lots of prayers and love, always.
A day to Mersing
Wednesday, January 21, 2015 || 7:05 pm
18 Jan, we went to Mersing, a day trip for the grown ups. Mama randomly asked me the other day whether am I working on the 18th as she planned to go for a day trip with pa and sis. Immediately, I checked my schedule and coincidently, I was on off! So, she got the packages for us and we went there by coach. Sis became merlion before we reached Mersing itself. Indeed, Mersing is a peaceful pretty place. The wind was strong, it was cooling and a good place to fly kite.
However, something that I don't get it, houses there, people don't really practise good hygiene. I wonder why. The surau there, was also a little dirty. :( Then on the way back, we passed by some Chinese and indian temple and it makes me ponder why our surau can't be as clean as theirs. hmm..
But overall, it's a perfect breather that I need.
The next day was the first day for me. Topics we covered were pretty interesting, a lot of new terms and theories but it's all related to us, our lifespan development.
The day after the next day, I had an event shoot. My command held an event with a theme of back to school. Indeed, it's refreshing to attend events that has a certain interesting dress code. It's where one can see the creativity of oneself. A freedom of expression by dressing up. I love taking such events, except that poor lighting at venue can cause pictures to turn ugly. urgh.

I've never had such a dilemma for such a long period. It bugs me so much when I think or when someone mentioned about it to me. Choices, we are given the opportunity and freedom to make choices. Some may be good, some are otherwise.
Changes, it happens. Sometimes, it happened in a matter of days, sometimes it takes years or sometimes some just doesn't. Should we anticipate for that change, or just forget about it?
Hope, as humans, we can't help to be hopeful for something we desire or something we wish to achieve. However, how hopeful can one get?
Prayers, it creates miracles. It's able to change one destiny if we pray hard enough. Atleast that's what I believe till now.

It was B who planned to bring me to a cafe, Rouse. Our first time there, searching for the exact location takes a while as there were no obvious signages from the side of the road etc. I fell in love with the rustic vintage ambience, i love the concept of the surroundings. Something fresh and new, usng for cheap materials creating a cosy environment, the warm lighting and the way the food was serve. The servings were not that big but it's good in a way that it is healthy.
Conversations that we had brought us closer. Things will change in a matter of time. I will be more occupied and god knows how i will be coping but i'm praying hard that god will make this journey of mine a smooth one. Insyallah. I'm extremely nervous for this new beginning and i'm so glad that B is being so supportive of it. :)
Oh, done with Rouse, we headed to Mind Cafe@Prinsep, my previous working place. How it brings much memories to be back there. It impressed me with how smart he is when it comes to games that requires strategy. Somehow, my brain is rusty when it comes to that. We had about 3 hours of gaming, munchies and free flow drinks for about $10++. It's quite affordable and a good way of bonding session.
That's all for today. I'm feeling the pressure when i've yet to even have a proper start for my new journey. Till then, take care people!

131214 Wedding of Su & Yus
Tuesday, January 06, 2015 || 6:15 pm
By yours truly.

|| 6:12 pm
A throwback post of my last day in 2014, i spent it with my boys over fireworks and some prawns. We literally spent the night together. Just 3 of us. It's been quite sometime we last hang out this long. We're growing old very fast, conversations starts to get more serious and we get tired easily. Glad to spent my last day for that year with them, indeed, soon, we'll have lesser of such celebrations.
Anyway, i didn't expect khatib to have fireworks. It was quite impressive actually to have fireworks around the neighbourhood area. hehe. Yes, i did mentioned about us becoming old as we can't even be bothered to travel to town for fireworks through the crowds etc So being able to witness it closer to home brings much joy to us. hehehe.
It has been good so far, alhamdulillah.
