Open Sea

Went to the open sea recently. Needless to say, it was a very pleasant experience. Wide open space as far as my eyes can see....

Mostly Green

Green seems today's color of choice. Green here, green there, but what ever it is, "Let's Go GREEN..."

In The Kitchen

In the kitchen over the weekend, the Queen of The House did some wonderful dessert called Trifle. This is her favorite kueh, probably her most popular, as sometimes her friends did ask for some. Obviously, everyone in the family must help her.

Only one thing that we can't help, which is to eat this dessert, as none in the family likes Trifle. We are more the die hard fans of her Coconut Cake, which is a very different story altogether...

Rambutan Mula Masak

Rambutan ditepi rumah sudah mula masak. Saban hari melihatnya, bukan hanya menanti untuk dimakan, tetapi gembira melihat usaha mula membuahkan hasilnya.


Tried to tie a hammock to the mango tree in my halaman rumah. Hoping that, during the afternoon, when the sea breeze lull softly, maybe when l receive a guest or two, he or she can laze in the hammock and slowly dreaming away... At least, the sea breeze, is somewhat different from the KL's air...

Musim Durian

Oh, durian dah bermusim sekarang ni.. Went to Johor / Melaka recently and saw a bumper season there. In my area, and my orchard especially, only a drizzle of season..... Maybe next year kot...

Gemas II

l wish, if l could get the opportunity to trample around the Gemas Station and capture what ever images that fancy me... before it be too late, before it be TOO LATE... as the jaw of modernisation is slowly but surely comes in it's way...

Our Heritage

My small contribution to record our heritage, as soon, this historic railway system will change into a soulless, just another modern transportation system.

To mention the least, we trully enjoyed our brief visit to Phnom Penh, of which we made a silent promise to re-visit this trully fascinating city. To sum of what we saw in Phnom Penh, it's all reflected in these picture, humble hearts of it's people and high spirit of the country to overcome whatever obstacles it may be, as they, saw it all before.

Street Food

Phnom Penh's street food, to my eyes, are very cosmopolitan. l saw the French bread are still very popular. This shot was taken one afternoon when we strolled the street of Phnom Penh. These baguettes were served with some kind of salad.

Popular across the Asia Continent, mee make a prominent appearance here in Phnom Penh. Cook-in-front-of-you style, we found this menu almost everywhere.

However, the native Phnom Penh recipe was the one that catched my eyes most. We named it grilled banana. The preparations are simple, half ripe bananas were skinned and dip into the salty water. Later it were skewed into a bamboo stick and grilled on the slow charcoal fire. Amazingly out-of-this-world kind of taste.

l was told, by a close friend of mine, that a tad of sadness was noticed in her eyes. l tend to agree. But she is too young to visualise the hardship of this old lady, the baked banana seller of which l became a customer of her, had gone through.

The People

The people of Phnom Penh, on the road to recovery from the dark yesteryear. After fought hard with the bullets, they are now fighting hard for a better economy.

From the food seller at the Russian Market
... the lycee seller at the market near the riverside

...the fruit peddler at the Central Market... the ornament tree seller nearby the Central Market... the baguette seller at the taxi station... to the tout at the inter-provinces bus station,
everybody is hoping that tomorrow will bring a better future.

The Railway Station

l love this grand old railway station. Period.

The City

l was asked, what do you think about Phnom Penh? l have no standard answer actually. For me, it was fascinating enough. l like the old buidings and happened to be, the old French colonial buildings are everywhere. l like the cities where the visitor will not really be noticed, and l blended really well in the city's atmosphere. l like the street photography and the photos opportunities are everywhere.
l like the contrasting city and really, it was obvious here in Phnom Penh. Despite the peaceful life enjoys after years of turmoil, life are certainly still difficult for some.

Phnom Penh

l was in Phnom Penh recently, which was a former French Colonial crown jewel sitting on the estuaries of Tonle, Bassac and the mighty Mekong river. Not much of an agenda, but just a few days of RnR while doing what l like most, photography.
