The Amazing Two

My dear baby Nana,

On 26 June 2015, you made me a mother. On 26 June 2016, you turned 1 year old and today you are turning 2.

Where does all the time go?

In this year, you learned how to walk, run, jump, talk, sing, speak, communicate, draw, read books, make friends, bite and push other kids, greet, said sorry and thank you, being compassionate and expressing yourself. You are developing your own little character throughout your first birthday until today. You are demanding, sometimes annoying but yet you are very loving. You impress me every single day on all the tiny little milestones that you achieved. I’m truly grateful that I’m there, to be with you, to witness all of them and to teach as well as learn together with you.

You speak Malaysian English, Cantonese and a little bit of Mandarin. By age of 2, you can speak a short sentence with 3 different languages. You are truly Malaysian.

You still hurt yourself every now and then because sometimes I’m not fast enough to run towards you and protect you. You are very petite in size as to compare to your age and sometimes I get comments from strangers as if I starve you and ate all the food myself. Sometimes we eat out when I’m too lazy (or frustrated to cook). There you might have eaten some msg or whatever seasoning that isn’t good for your health. Sometimes I ignore you because I’m too tired (or lazy) to response. I just wanted to let you know that I’m not a perfect mother. But I’m trying to be as good as possible, to love and to protect you with everything I have.

Thank you for calling me “mummy mummy mummy” endlessly. Thank you for giving me a pat on my shoulder when I told you “mummy is sad”. Thank you for letting me sleep in a little bit more in some days without waking me up and greet me with your charming smile with your best “good morning mummy” greeting every morning. Thank you for kissing me good night before you go to the bed. Thank you for loving me wholeheartedly every minute every second until you need to peak on me when I’m on the toilet doing my business. Thank you for running towards me and hug my leg when I’m in the kitchen cooking our meal just because you wish I can sit down and play with you. Thank you for giving me a thumbs up on the food I cook for you. Thank you for testing my limit and challenge my patience. Thank you for giving me joy and laughter. Most of all, thank you for being my friend and spending these beautiful moments with me.

My Tungsten Affair (Film)

The calm after the storm, that’s how I feel today. It’s particularly hot today, perhaps it’s because of the pouring Thursday whole day yesterday. Anyways, here’s the series of my work using the amazing Tungsten film. The hot weather now remind me of the wonderful scene captured by the Tungsten film.

What the hell is Tungsten film? It’s a super fine grain film with ISO 64. You may achieve a very purplish and sometimes pink or blue(?!!)  when you cross-processing the Tungsten film. And for more accurate explanations about the film, please check out this link.

I tried one roll on the expired Fuji T64 Tungsten (35mm, 64ISO) once before and it’s very very greenish! It’s not up to my liking and since then I never tried another roll. But, it’s rather a different story for Lomography x Tungsten film! I amaze by the beautiful shades of purple and pink. It’s rather sweet and work really awesome under the bright sunlight with LC-A or LC-Wide under ISO100. But sad case, it’s not producing anymore, and that means this gem will distinct anytime soon. 😦

Well, what remains, still beautiful. Here’s my Tungsten affair and cheers to the sweet shades of purple!

A Beautiful Day at Sekinchan

It’s been a long long while since the last outing with a bunch of photo enthusiasm, and it’s great to be able to go places with a group of people who are in different industry but share almost the same interest and beliefs in photography. We went to this beautiful small town; Sekinchan which located nearby Kuala Selangor and Sabak Bernam. It took about 1 hour plus to reach this place from the place I stay. We went there during harvesting season (June, 2013) and we are expecting golden brown dried paddy instead of the green one. We drive along and finally saw some haystack which is really gorgeous. 🙂

Beautiful weather, beautiful people. I miss going out on photo-outing. 🙂 Let’s go out and shoot, shall we?
