Joey Lawrence

I know this might look some pirated and violation of other's property, but I can't help to spread to the whole world how breath-taking were the photos taken by Joey Lawrence.
the homepage

Though I'm not really into any photo-shooting spirit and sense, but I had gotten compliment from a friend of mine which I have the "sense of photo". I shot some nice pictures, but compared to this renowned artist, it was really like the junk by the road side.

fragile life form by the roadside

Seriously, it might not be inspiring to some of you but, seriously, those are goo pictures, with the colouration of emphasized items and object, it seems that every picture taken was able to tell a story out by itself.

Surprisingly, "Twilight" was also shot by him! The famous movie-transformed novel by Stephanie Meyer!

Please do visit the site. You will be surprised how we missed the beauties in life.

Losing out

 Lim Kit Siang on Three Higher Education Ministers in 4 years while universities continue plunge in international rankings and losing out to Indonesia after left behind by Singapore/Thailand

Try to look at that.
Why is Malaysian keep always think they are best and keep denying the fact that we're losing out?
For all those who are affordable, please send your children to other better tertiary education.
for all those who are less capable of doing so, you might want to work hard to earn yourself a scholarship which, WHICH helps you get out of this Boleh-land.

Pathetic Malaysian education system.
Especially with all those M*lay Supremacy Egoism.

Loy Krathong ลอยกระทง

The Siamese Lantern Festival, a.k.a. Loy Krathong has yet to be an major event celebrated by Chinese and Siamese Community in Terengganu. For years, the event was held in Kuala Ibai Golf Resort, which was a fairly commodious venue to fit in mass visitor.

"Loi" means "to float". "Krathong" is a raft about a handspan in diameter traditionally made from a section of banana tree trunk (although modern-day versions use specially made bread 'flowers' and may use styrofoam), decorated with elaborately-folded banana leaves, flowers, candles, incense sticks etc. During the night of the full moon, many people will release a small raft like this on a river.
Colourful lantern which is expensive
The major event of the festive was to release the handspan lantern into the river, along with wishes and blessings from the monk from Thailand. The lantern was rather hard to lit as the wind was strong the other night. we've tried for half an hour to wait for the flame to stabilize and release into river.

 There is also a dragon boat situated in the middle of the river, believed that symbolized that the messenger from the heaven above. Though I am a Catholic, I wasn't taboo in these Buddhism believes. Ultimately, all religion also leads disciple to virtue rather than vice!

lucky pick branches

Other than the traditional shadow play, there is also this lucky pick branches where some sort of lucky draw. It was so costly where you might get a pack of junk food for RM1 play! The event was so crowded as they begin to dismiss only after 12. It was a nice event to get along with as you may influenced by the energetic performance by the Siamese singers and dancers. The only regret is that they do not show much Thai food which was my original intention to come!

Loy... Loy... Krathong!
