It’s that time again, that final hour before another year close its curtain and the new year come by. The past 12 months have been very interesting and I wish to relive those moments here.
For the first time in our life, we traveled our way to Europe without our parents. Yeah, normally, we would have the whole family to enjoy this kind of vacation but at the end of 2009, my brother and I decided to have a *siblings-only* backpacking style of vacation. It really open our eyes especially in financial management part as we do not have our beloved HUGE piggy banks whom we call Papa & Mummy along with us.That very new year, we celebrated it in Paris; Nope, they do not have any fireworks during new year in Paris. You better jot that down!!!!
I started to put Run/Jog into my weekly calendar after gaining some motivation from my Europe Trip. But the highlight of the month would be my Thaipusam coverage in Batu Caves, Malaysia together with the two Indonesian photojournalists, Ulet Ifansasti & Johannes P Christo; and fellow Chap Ayam photogs i.e Ian Ahmad, A.G and friends.
I was also overjoy for one of my euro trip photos were chosen to be in 10th Edition of Schmap Antwerp Guide!
was all about mother earth and our Earth Hour celebration in the wonderful Kuala Lumpur City Center with my Flolesians mates.
This website was born!!!! The first ever couple featured here was Mai Nazura & Hanif, from their engagement session~ I knew these two lovebirds back in my university days. Kind of awesome to think that later, I was chosen again to share their joy as a married couple~
I went back to Fida’s hometown to attend her old friend, Ayu’s wedding which Fida happen to be the make-up artist. It was Fida’s so-called debut as one, so I have to get some photos for her portfolio.
This month was dedicated to two couples. The first one would be Faiz & Tina. Faiz and I went a long way back since primary school and we are pretty much like brothers!!!
and the second couple would be, me & Fida!!! We got engaged later that month :D
My sweetheart, Aisyah Humaira turned 1.
Fazrul & Lini gave me the chance to experience their Indian wedding reception. Now I can imagine how much details were bombarded towards my eyes during this kind of wedding. Can’t get enough of everything!!!
I went to visit Amin Hariz, the son of my clients, Amani & Hariz. It’s a good feeling to see how the family grows and to realize that you actually played a role in a family’s history.
I also manage to secure some profile photos for Miss Anis Daud of Kertas Puteh during a photography workshop in Kuala Lumpur. Guess what, up until now, her name still draw traffics to my website. A very high profile photography chic, this Anis. :D
At the end of the month, I paid a visit to Universiti Teknologi MARA, Jengka campus for a session between students and alumni. To my surprised, this campus really have some opportunities for creative eyes to play with.
I was trying my luck shooting sports after I left it for quite some time. The truth is, I don’t fancy sports photography as it suggests some burst mode to be used while I don’t enjoy using my camera as a machine gun. Shah and his Snipers Team went to the Finals and they didn’t mind being my test subjects during that game. Hahaha. Hey, they turn out to be the NCBL Cup champion for category B. WHEE~!!
KT & Zaki were next in the line. Met KT during a training we both attended about 2 years ago. Their solemnization ceremony is definitely one of my favourites this year!
Next was Seri & Eugene’s turn to tie the knot. Personally, I’ve been waiting for this moment to come ever since January. Seri is one of my good pals from PETRONAS Research. She has constantly support my photography work throughout the years that I have vowed to give her my ultimate best on her wedding. While Eugene, despite not being able to fully converse in Malay (as he’s an American), he has shown great effort to digest most if not all of our Malay wedding customs. In no time, I bet he will manage to use the word “Lah~” as good as we Malaysians and Singaporeans do. Haha
It marked the return of Mai Nazura & Hanif. This sweet couple from my university days is officially husband and wife this month. They are also the first couple whom I have covered from engagement ceremony to the wedding receptions on both sides of the family.
Khairil & Zaiti summed up the November’s assignments. Khairil is also one of my university friends I made in Perak; and he is also a photographer. This wedding is still a work in progress as you may not find it featured here yet. Nevertheless, some Sneak Peeks won’t ruin the fun, right? (well, you can actually find more of their photos in facebook :D)
Amirul & Nadia were the last couple whom I shot in 2010. To make things even more interesting, Amirul and Khairil (yes, that Khairil above!!) were housemates during bachelor days and these are my friends whom I have meals together every now and then. Yet, as of now, I have only one image for you to feast on. More to come later~
So this pretty much summarizes my whole photography year of 2010. Hey, by the time I reach this part of the post, it is already January 1st, 2011. Owh, nevermind.. I will still post this for my own reference. Before I end this, I would love to thank all of you who never get bored with what I have installed here. This blog was purposely set up as a medium to share how I see my world, with others. I’m looking forward to see a lot more things in 2011. Again, I thank you for your support!
Selamat Tahun Baru 2011!!!! (that’s Happy New Year 2011 in Malay)
