2014 ended with a dreadful flood on the east coast of Malaysia.

My dad’s home town was one of the affected area.

The house he grew up in almost had collapse.

 No words could ever described how he must felt.

Even I felt devastated seeing the house in such condition.

We grew up in this house to, my siblings, cousins and I.

Too many memories.

 As a nation, we were tested with the disappearance of MH370 and the unprecedented tragedy of MH17 and QZ8501.

My condolences goes out to all affected family and friends.

I hope that the mystery of MH370 will be resolve soon.

On the brighter side, we had three weddings this year.

They were born on the same year, and married on the same year too.

Except for my sister.

The Camera

Photography has been my hobby since I was 11-12 years old. My father used to have a Canon SLR (can’t remember the exact model) that uses film, and I will always be the one to hold the camera and took pictures of anything that is interesting from my point of view.

As I grew older, SLR became pretty much expensive and compact camera was introduced into the market. I was excited because it will be much easier for me to take pictures and not have to go to the shop and developed the film. Unfortunately, my hobby or my passion for photography was seen as a waste and expensive. and so I thought “there goes my hobby.”

As I entered university, I had the chance to met up with few people who happens to love photography as much as I do. They introduced me to DSLR and boy I was wrong about the price! and again, there goes my hobby.

But one day, my lovable boyfriend (who happen to be my brilliant husband now) bought me a compact point and shoot camera , Nikon Coolpix. Years later, one of my university buddy wanted to sell his Nikon D80 and that become my first DSLR camera. I was so happy, it was like buying myself a diamond ring!

A year later, Nikon came out with Nikon D3000, so I sold my D80 and bought D3000 and I am the most happiest person alive! My diamond rock just get bigger and shinier. Years later, we got married and he said to me lets sell your camera and share Nikon D90 for few years. and Yes, I did sell my baby D3000 to my brother in law (at least my baby got to stay in the family).

  1. What is your greatest passion? Well I would say, PHOTOGRAPHY. It makes me see things in different perspective. For example, people always say ‘well, the tree is dead, they should cut it off. I might be dangerous’. But the way I see it ‘It’s a beautiful tree and it is the closes meaning to life, because eventually everything dies. The only differences is how you see it coming and how you imagine it to be.
  2. What is your favorite color and why? Always red. It symbolize strength and braveness in a person. I always feel confident when I’m in red. It makes me feel like I have super power.
