DAILY LIFE

Collection pictures of daily life taken in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.

Long before photojournalists trained their cameras on wars and other, less violent events, a journalistic visual tradition already existed; the first narrative scenes of warfare were incised on the walls of a Middle Eastern palace nearly 3,000 years ago. The invention of photography simply gave this inclination an enormous boost. In 1873 the development of photo‑mechanical printing techniques made it possible for photographic images to be printed in newspapers and illustrated magazines for distribution to a mass audience. This new form of visual reportage was intended to inform, astonish, and even entertain, and over time it became what is now known as photojournalism.

NATIONAL DAY OF MOURNING ON MH17

Collection pictures of Malaysia’s National Day of Mourning for MH17.

The bodies and ashes of 20 victims from the airliner that was shot down over eastern Ukraine last month were given full military honours and a day of national mourning was declared – the first in the country’s history. Many people in offices in the nation of 30 million observed a minute’s silence as the hearses were driven from the tarmac of Kuala Lumpur International Airport to private funerals. Some public trains in the capital stopped operating. Carried by soldiers and draped in the national flag, coffins carrying Malaysian victims of the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 returned home yesterday as the search continues for those onboard another doomed jet and the government battles the political fallout from the two tragedies.

All 298 people on board died when the jet was shot down over an area of Ukraine controlled by pro-Russia separatists on a flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. The victims included 43 Malaysians and 195 Dutch nationals. An international inquiry is going on, but no one has been arrested.

MALAYSIA AIRLINES MH17

Collection pictures of Malaysian Airlines MH17  shot down while it was at a cruising altitude of 33,000 feet leaving no chance of survival for the 298 souls onboard MH17. On 17th July 2014, A Malaysian passenger airliner with 295 people on board was shot down near the border of Ukraine and Russia, where witnesses say dozens of bodies are scattered around the wreckage, according to a number of reports. The Boeing 777-200ER, carrying 280 passengers and 15 crew members, was shot down at an altitude of 10,000 metres above Eastern Ukraine, the Ukrainian bureau of the Russia-based news agency Interfax reported. The Boeing plane was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia Airlines said in a statement that it received notification from Ukrainian air traffic control that it had lost contact with Flight MH17 at 10 a.m. ET around 30 kilometres from Tamak waypoint, approximately 50 kilometres from the Russia-Ukraine border. This is the second incident in less than five months involving a Malaysia Airlines plane. Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 disappeared in March while en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. It has not been found, but the search for the wreckage of the plane has been concentrated in the Indian Ocean far west of Australia. During this day, Malaysian NGO’s held a candlelight vigil to tribute to the all the passengers and some NGO’s gathered in front of Russia Embassy and Ukraine Embassy to protests on the same issue in Kuala Lumpur.

MALAYSIA HUNGRY GHOST FESTIVAL

Collection pictures of Malaysia hungry ghost festival taken on 3rd August 2014 in Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia.

The Ghost Festival, also known as the Hungry Ghost Festival in modern day, Zhong Yuan Jie or Yu Lan Jie is a traditional Buddhist and Taoist festival held in Asian countries. In the Chinese calendar,  the Ghost Festival is on the 15th night of the seventh month.In Chinese culture, the fifteenth day of the seventh month in the lunar calendar is called Ghost Day and the seventh month in general is regarded as the Ghost Month, in which ghosts and spirits, including those of the deceased ancestors, come out from the lower realm. Distinct from both the Qingming Festival and Double Ninth Festival in which living descendants pay homage to their deceased ancestors, during Ghost Festival, the deceased are believed to visit the living.

RAMADAN 2014

Collection of my Ramadan pictures I took during the month of Ramadan in Kuala Lumpur.

Across a wide belt that stretches halfway around the globe, the world’s estimated 1.6 billion Muslims will mark the beginning of Ramadan this weekend. The holy season is marred by unprecedented turmoil, violence and sectarian hatreds that threaten to rip apart the Middle East, the epicenter of Islam. Ramadan is a Muslim holy month of fasting during which Muslims abstain from food, drink and other pleasures from sunrise to sunset. Ramadan is the time Muslims believe God started to reveal the Quran to the Prophet Muhammad. For believers, Ramadan is meant to be a time of reflection and worship, remembering the hardships of others and being charitable. Islam is based on a lunar calendar, so the start of Ramadan on the Gregorian calendar varies each year. Once the new crescent moon has been sighted, observance begins. The new moon at the end of the month signals Eid al-Fitr, a three-day festival marking the end of fasting. The majority of Shiites tend to mark Ramadan a day later than Sunnis, although this Ramadan is an exception and a rare event where Shiite and Sunnis will mark Ramadan together.

MISSING OF MALAYSIA AIRLINES MH370

My deepest condolences to all the victims onboard the Malaysia Airlines MH17 and rest in peace.

This is some of my collection photos during the coverage on the missing Malaysia Airlines MH370 at Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Sepang.

The MH370 flight with 239 passengers and crew on board went missing since March 8 after taking off from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport and until today the case is still mystery.

I will update my photos of MH17 after everything is done.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was a scheduled international passenger flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing that disappeared on 8 March 2014 at 01:20 MYT (17:20 UTC, 7 March), after losing contact with air traffic control less than an hour after takeoff. At 07:24, Malaysia Airlines (MAS) reported the flight missing. The aircraft, a Boeing 777-200ER, was carrying 12 Malaysian crew members and 227 passengers from 15 nations. A multinational search effort, which became the largest and most expensive in history, began in the Gulf of Thailand and the South China Sea, where the flight’s signal was lost on secondary radar, and was soon extended to the Strait of Malacca and Andaman Sea. On 15 March, based on military radar data and transmissions between the aircraft and an Inmarsat satellite, investigators concluded that the aircraft had diverted from its intended course and headed west across the Malay Peninsula, then continued on a northern or southern track for around seven hours. The focus of the search shifted to the southern part of the Indian Ocean, west of Australia. In the first two weeks of April, aircraft and ships deployed equipment to listen for signals from the underwater locator beacons attached to the aircraft’s “black boxes”. Four unconfirmed signals were detected between 6 and 8 April near the time the beacons’ batteries were likely to have been exhausted. A robotic submarine searched the seabed near the detected pings until 28 May, with no debris being found. After an analysis of possible flight paths is conducted, the search will resume in August, 2014, at a new, 60,000 square kilometres (23,000 sq mi) search area, approximately 2,000 kilometres (1,200 mi) west of Perth, Australia. The underwater search of this area is expected to last up to 12 months at a cost of A$60 million (approximately US$56 million or €41 million).
