57TH MALAYSIA NATIONAL DAY

Collection pictures of Malaysia 57th National Day held at Dataran Merdeka, Kuala Lumpur.

The love of Malaysians for the country, which was aptly captured in this year’s Merdeka (Independence Day) theme “Malaysia: Here, Where Love Begins”. It was a flamboyant Merdeka parade at Dataran Merdeka on the morning of Aug 31, 2014 as Malaysians celebrated the nation’s 57th independence day. The parade started at 8am and ended at 10am with some 15,000 people in attendance. The celebrations reflected the pride in the heart of Malaysians in calling this country their home. While the tragedies of MH17 and MH370 remain close at heart, Malaysians today came together to celebrate a joyous occasion as they keep the tragedies in mind, as a reminder to stay strong and to stand in solidarity with one another in order to face whatever the future may bring.

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.

A TRAVEL EPIPHANY: RATTLING TOWARDS BANGKOK

In an age of instant gratification, a rail journey may not be most holidaymakers’ carriage of choice, especially those on short vacations. However, it may still appeal to some who have the time to kick back and enjoy the scenery. I took a 33-hours train ride from Kuala Lumpur to Bangkok and chronicled my fellow passengers along the way to captured the daily life on people who are abroad the same train. 

From KL Sentral, my first stop is at Padang Besar, Kedah for customs checked and after that the train continued to Hat Yai, Thailand. It takes 13 hours and the distance from KL Sentral to Hat Yai is 532KM. 

From Hat Yai, I bought a train ticket and continued my journey to Bangkok with State Railway of Thailand train and it takes 20 hours and the distance from Hat Yai to Bangkok is 941KM.

SRT was founded as the Royal State Railways of Siam (RSR) in 1890. Construction of the Bangkok-Ayutthaya railway (71 km or 44 mi), the first part of the Northern Line, was started in 1891 and completed on May 23, 1892. The Thonburi-Phetchaburi line (150 km or 93 mi), later the Southern Line, was opened on June 19, 1903.

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).

SWISS DREAM CIRCUS

The Swiss Dream Circus from Switzerland performing for the first time in Malaysia at Mutiara Damansara, giving the opportunity for Malaysians to witness the world-class circus, which is a collaboration of performers from 9 different countries. Swiss Dream Circus was formed on year 2000 by Marco Baumgartner from Switzerland, he made his debut performance as a juggler when he was only thirteen. Throughout his entire youth, Marco travelled around the world with various circus artists and soon caught the circus fever. This was when he conceptualized the idea of building a circus in Asia. After a period of intensive market research, he settled upon setting up his first show in Singapore and that was how Swiss Dream Circus was born. Together with his close friend clown Andre, one of the most successful Swiss clown and Stephan Balle, he realized this dream in the year 2000.

A circus is a company of performers that may include clowns, acrobats, trained animals, trapeze acts, musicians, hoopers, tightrope walkers, jugglers, unicyclists and other object manipulation and stunt-oriented artists. The term ‘circus’ also describes the performance which has followed various formats through its 250 year modern history. Philip Astley is credited with being the ‘father’ of the modern circus when he opened the first circus in 1768 in England. Early circuses were almost exclusively demonstrations of equestrian skills with a few other types of acts to link the horsemanship performances. Performances developed significantly through the next fifty years, with large scale theatrical battle reenactments becoming a significant feature. The ‘traditional’ format, whereby a ringmaster introduces a varied selection of acts that mostly perform choreographed acts to traditional music, developed in the latter part of 19th century and continued almost universally to be the main style of circus up until the 1970s.

WESAK DAY 2014

Vesākha,Wesak or Vesak, also known as Buddha Purnima, is a holiday observed traditionally by Buddhists on different days in Nepal, Sri Lanka, Tibet, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, and the South East Asian countries of Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar and Indonesia, and other places all over the world. Sometimes informally called “Buddha’s Birthday”, it actually commemorates the birth, enlightenment (nirvāna), and death (Parinirvāna) of Gautama Buddha in the Theravada or southern tradition.

The exact date of Vesak is based on the the Asian lunisolar calendars and is primarily celebrated in Vaisakha month of the Buddhist calendar and the Hindu calendar, and hence the name Vesak. In India and Nepal, which is considered the birth-country of Buddha, it is celebrated on the full moon day of the Vaisakha month of the Hindu calendar, and is traditionally called Buddha Purnima, Purnima meaning the full moon day in Sanskrit. In Theravada countries following the Buddhist calendar, it falls on a full moon Uposatha day, typically in the 5th or 6th lunar month. In China and Korea, it is celebrated on the eighth day of the fourth month in the Chinese lunar calendar. The date varies from year to year in the Western Gregorian calendar, but usually falls in April or May. In leap years it may be celebrated in June.

DAILY LIFE

Collections of my daily life images captured between April 2014 and May 2014. I love a quote from Sir Ansel Adams.

“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” 
― Ansel Adams

I’m always believed, nothing is impossible and no one can stop you to do something you want to do. Life must go on and MOVE on, no one can help you except yourself.
