BERSIH 3.0-The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

There has been so much talking during the past 5-6 days regarding one of the biggest ever protest ever held in the country, Bersih 3.0. I was there as usual, supporting the cause of the protest and at the same time hoping to get some beautiful photos of the event. So here are some photos of the sit-in protest held last Saturday in Dataran Merdeka, the good photos of people from all walks of life sitting peacefully supporting the event, the bad S.O.P of the police in handling the protest, and the ugly scene of violence that marred during the protest. All in all I captured more than 700 photos of the event. Here are some of the photos captured during the sit-in protest, one of the biggest so far, calling for the government to reform the electoral machine in this country. Enjoy the photos.

Debu Hiroshima

will update my fotopages to the soonest as possible. for now here i am infront of Hiroshima A-Bomb Dome near the Hiroshima Memorial Park in Hiroshima, of course.
the title was first used by the novellist Othman Puteh on the novel, Debu Hiroshima, a story of how a Malay student studying in Hiroshima survived the painful history of the human-kind, the bombing of Hiroshima.
i do have so many photos to share in my fotopages right now, but i need to get to that sad-feeling again to be able to present it in better atmosphere, i mean, at the moment, i am a bit of overexcited here, still wandering around the city of Hiroshima, and yet ada hati nak update the sad story of the bombing, so i think let me relax dulu, and get the feeling again, then i will post those photos and the write-up here in the fp. so stay tuned guys

when i first saw it with my eyes, i thought it was soo beautiful, it looks like a drawing, and i straight away stopped my car, and just walked inside the durian orchard without ever thought of asking the owner a permission to enter it. i was like hypnotized by the beauty of that orchard and i just grabbed the camera and walked straight inside the orchard and trying to recapture the beauty i saw in my eyes and transfer it inside my camera. and i think yess, i have it here. a beautiful durian orchard in Trong. enjoy yah
