The Bamboo Bridge

I notice the bridge while having breakfast in front of my boutique hotel, on a platform on the river bank facing the river... and the bridge.

This was my daily breakfast view, during which I update my journal, review photos and planning for the day excursion.

I saw a monk walking on the bamboo bridge. I rushed immediately but could catch him. It was quite frustrating at the beginning until I realized it is not a rare site through out the day... or though out average Luang Prabang day....

 and I managed to capture this.

Given a choice, my most favourite man-made structure in Luang Prabang, I would choose the bamboo bridge with monks walking on it.

Like this one!

The night before the climb, I arrange everything by my bed. I thought I have everything. Unfortunately I forgot to unpack my headlights. Luckily Yats got one extra.


Proven - mental list is NOT working in this kind of activity.

Silly me.

Still My Idol


My Luggage

This bag is one of my best traveling companion. It has never failed me. It protects my belonging while traveling and at the hotel perfectly well.

It is not a Louis Vouitton, it better and cheaper!

Walkabout Kota Kinabalu

Walking around in Kota Kinabalu before climbing the beautiful mountain. After the Filipino market we took a walk to buy the out-door gear shops nearby. Yats and Karinsky have their local hats on - quite useful on a hot sunny day.

Tutup Aurat

You can see this sign at the entrance of Tabung Haji Kelana Jaya.

I was there a couple of months ago to withdraw some money form my savings. My daily uniform is short - almost cover my knees. I was quite reluctant to proceed when I enter the premise with this sign so visible on your face.

I persisted.

Managed to do a withdrawal without any problem.


Running Buddies

Nan (the girl on the right) is not only a running buddy, but also a cycling buddy. Been every where with her. Both are my good buddies. We have known each other for more than a decade.

Bukit Broga

I love trekking, especially with a good bunch of friends. We have climbed Broga Hill several times - weekends and weekdays. 

I prefer weekdays.

This is also one of the reasons I love KL. The trail head is less than half an hour from home.

Kapas from Kelulut

I asked my sister in law, Sue to stop the car on the way to my brother's place to shoot the view of Pulau Kapas from Kpg Kelulut.

The storm was approaching.

I thought we would have a wet raya, but I was wrong.

Junior Terengganu Swimming Team - in the making

Adam and Omar - Warming up before training session

 Adam doing his strokes

Really proud of this 2 boys.

Asrul's New Home

My brother spoils his children.

He built a house each for each of the boys - 4 of them.

This one belongs to Asrul, the eldest son, almost completed.

This is the wall of the living room. Omar and Alisa posed for me, with an unfinished paint job as backdrop.

I think I will frame some nice photos for their house warming.

*note to self* Don't forget this.

ICT, Kuala Terengganu Version

This is the latest development behind Kampung China where the y have reclaimed the land. It was a river before and now it a solid ground. 

This is also the site for Jom Heboh concert.

Quite nice, this water front overlooks Monsoon Cup venue.

Jalan Banggol, Kuala Terengganu

Recently shot in Kuala Terengganu, on Jalan Banggol, a stone throw away from Pasar Payang. Very disappointed with the state government for tearing down some of the old shop houses.


They haven't a clue about the value of our heritage.
