This is my first collection pictures of daily life for 2015.
Pictures taken on the whole month of January until 12th Febuary 2015.
Since Chinese New Year is around the corner, most of my pictures are connected to Chinese New Year. It’s been a rough month through out the month of January and I spent most of the time with my job assignments and took 1 to 2 hours per day to shoot some daily life pictures for my company. I’ve selected 30 pictures to upload and this time I featured more on Chinese New Year, some macro insects, 1600 pandas world tour, market price reduced due to poor economy, bloods donation, technologies affected children due to ipad addiction and some small events happened around Dataran Merdeka in Kuala Lumpur.
I love quotes.
“A picture is a secret about a secret, the more it tells you the less you know.”

Supporters gathered in front the Palace of Justice in Putrajaya to supports the opposition leader final appeal on the charge of having sodomised his fomer aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan seven years ago. Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim will serve a five-year jail term from 10th Feb, 2015 after the Federal Court upheld the Court of Appeal’s earlier decision
his political career has been filled with ups and downs. However, the latest guilty verdict handed out to him by the Federal Court, could spell his exit from the political scene, although he has vowed to continue his fight and struggle.

Observed as a day of thanksgiving and paying penance for Lord Murugan, Thaipusam is celebrated by the Tamil community on the full moon in the Tamil month of Thai. Me, The Rakyat Post’s photographer travelled to Penang to document the vibrant and colourful celebration through my lenses.
Early in the morning, Hindu devotees, with some of them having pierced parts of their bodies, walked to the Balathandayuthapani Hilltop Temple along the Waterfall Road.
A huge crowd gathered at the heart of George Town to witness the annual lively religious Thaipusam celebration this year and an estimated 30,000 devotees took part in the procession with some carrying the “kavadi” and “paal kodam” (milk pots).
My Recent observation at the Selayang wet market found foreigners occupying a significant space in the vegetables section. Based on interviews with several local Chinese sellers in the area, most of the foreigners were made up of those from Bangladesh and Myanmar. The locals further alleged that these foreigners did not have a business license.
I recently visited the Selayang wet market in Kuala Lumpur after receiving complaints from local traders that foreigners were operating illegally there. They said every time enforcement action was taken against these illegal traders, they would return a few days later. The local traders said they had been facing this problem for the past 10 years.
The main concern of the locals was that these foreigners were selling low-quality vegetables at a lower price. Based on further observation, this problem is not only affecting the Selayang wet market but also other major wet markets around Kuala Lumpur.
Some traders are worried that this problem, coupled with the coming Goods and Services Tax (GST), may result in further losses for them.
It is learned that some of these foreigners started off working for local businessmen at the market. Later on, they began to venture out into business on their own.
My last 2014 post.
The collection of Malaysia daily life pictures taken in color and black and white as my 2014 wrap up post.
Pictures feature on new year countdown, stamp exhibition in KL Convention centre, Christmas decoration, AFF Suzuki Cup final, UMNO 2014 AGM, Taktha 3 Ratu theater taken at Istana Budaya, Penang night street and many more.
2014 indeed a bad year for Malaysia. 3 major aviation incident happened on a same year and many people has died and missing. This year, I’ve witnessed the pain and suffering for the one who lost their family members and the most I remembered is during the first batch on MH 17 victims bodies came back to Malaysia. I saw an innocent face expression of a boy when the army force carried a coffin of his mother and put it on a grave. He is speechless and wonder why his mother in a coffin and what is happening.
Thought everything is over and all the things happened will become history. My life as a News Photographer makes me realized one thing which is I am with competition with no one, I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone. I am trying to be better than the person I was yesterday.
Performed during Chinese New Year as well as other traditional, cultural and religious festivals, the lion dance makes up a huge part of the Chinese culture. The Rakyat Post photographer Daniel Chan documents the process involved in the making of the lion’s head at Taman Desa Pandan in Selangor. Craftsman Wong Soon Fai, 53, produces two styles of southern lion heads, the Fut San (Buddha Mountain) and Hok San (Crane Mountain), with both originating from the Guangdong province in China. According to Wong, rattan as a material is favoured over the traditional bamboo-made lion heads due to its lightness and pliability as it does not snap like bamboo, putting the lion head operator at the risk of injuries.
