The Faces of the Uighurs

all of these photos was captured last year when i was in Canberra, Australia.

all of these images of the Uighurs, a Turkic people who are largely Muslim and share linguistic and cultural bonds with Central Asia, was captured during the olympic torch relay event that was held during the round-up to the beijing olympics games...

so these minority group, which populates the autonomous region of Xinjiang, together with another minority of Tibetan, who also populates another autonomous region of Tibet, joined forces to hold a peaceful demonstration against the communist ruled nation, during the olympic torch relay event.....

well, seriously, its kinda complicated to me to understands the politics in the Republic of China........memang complicated.....

what i know from my reading was, the ethnic tension which is happening now in the Xinjiang Province, was all due to the racial sentiment that would be brought up when something happends, no matter who is to blame..i mean.....
according to the news i read, the riots followed a dispute between Uighurs workers and the Han people in a toy factory in Guangdong province on June 26.
two Uighur workers were reportedly killed during the the factory brawl, which occurred after rumours that Uighur workers sexually assaulted Han female workers.

i m not so sure how true the story was, since it was reported as rumours......
but i see it as another racial unrest between the minorities and the majorities.

u see, in Malaysia, we always faces with these kind of situation whenever something unwanted happened between the races.
and it doesnt helped the situation to become better when the people involved sees it through the eyes of racial sentiments...and of course will make a judgement based on the racial lines.

for example, whenever something happends, say Ali is driving a car, when he accidentally knocked down ah Chong rear bumper....
in the middle of a Chinese majority pekan, say it in Seri Kembangan....
and vice versa, (ah Chong accidentally knocked down Ali's car in a Malay majority kampung)
what will happened if the passers by reacts based on the racial judgement??
thats what happend in Kamunting a month ago....

everyone in the country is racist....seriously....thanks to all of our politician lah who always tryin to champions the race they claim they're tryin to helped.
but for us the good rakyat, we shouldnt judge something happening in our society through the racial lines....its really dangerous....
especially when we are livin in a multi-ethnic society like in Malaysia.

my point is, what is wrong is wrong lah.....
whether it is the malay, or the chinese, the indians, or the uighurs, the han or the sikh, whoever yg salah tetap salah.....even if u re a Muslim....
if u re wrong, then u re wrong....

well in this case of uighur vs han, if the rumours is true that the uighur started the assault on the han female, then, the person who started the problem should be brought to justice....
but the guy who commit the wrongdoing should be justified by the court of law lah....
simple as that

well, i think i ve gone too far lah.....
i thought of writing about Uighurs and Hans....but end up about malay, chinese indian pulak.....

well, as said before, the political situation in China is quite difficult to understands...
since its really complicated to me, i think its better for me to not to write about it....
well, i think its better for us to just look into these images of the Uighurs....
at least somehow, when we read about the stories of the Uighurs, we can get a clear picture of them, and how they do look a like...

my heart melted seeing this cute little girl being cuddled up by her mother, which i cant resist taking photos of her with her mom.....of course with her mother's consent lah;-)
the girl is holding the blue flag which almost resembles like the red Turkish flag, is actually the flag used by the Uighurs as a symbol of the East Turkestan independence movement. The Government of the People's Republic of China prohibits using the flag in the country.


and some of the protesters displaying some of the names they claimed still being detained by the authorities in china




cant get enough of her, so i followed the family and introduced myself to the father, that i am a part-time photographer from Malaysia, and to my surprise, the father terus grab my hands and said to me , "we're brothers" brothers in Islam....berbunga jap hati aku masa tu......
and that sort of remarks gave me some kind of confidence to talk and discuss about the situation what is actually happening in China, specifically in the Xinjiang Province.


and it also helped me to get the approval from the family for me to capture their image inside my camera lah



one of the Uighurs protester pose for the camera, ready to distribute the pamphlets about the Xinjiang province to the passers by.


i first received the pamphlet from this lady, which to me she's actually quite attractive lah.....hehehehe
then, u know lah, i pon terus become interested lah about what is actually going-on inside their country lah....huhuhuhuh......most of these ladies are students studying in Uni in all over Australia...... aku nyesal tak sudah pasal lupa nak mintak email depa.....

Falling in love with Agnetha

shes blonde, shes hot and her voice is out of this world punya kind of voice....
memang aku gila kat dia...and lagu2 dia ....
and the expression on her face when shes singing the song memang aku rasa a bit sad especially when you know that the group is already dissolved and all 4 of them dah bawak haluan sendiri.
yep kind a sad story to me

i dont know, lately nih aku asik dengar this song.
layaaaannn
when i watch the video clip of this song, and lookin at the train station semua tu feel like i m in the one of european countries.
the feeling tu cam u re actually in europe.
macam aku penah sampai at the train station tu....hehehehehe....
well, being raised in Taiping with the taiping railway station tu jadi tempat singgah aku makan2 masa budak2 dulu, tak heran laaaa aku cam ada rasa itu deja vuu nye feeling tuuu...
hehehehehe...ntah....aku kot yg banyak berimaginasi....

well, no wonder this song became a top 5 hit in the european countries....
pasal aku rasa lagu nih memang layan, and the video also was shoot somewhere in the european country laa,....aku rasa la....tak heran la jadi top 5 masa tu....around the year 1982.....aku pon tak sampai setahun lagi masa tu....baby lagi....hehehe

and the lyrics ......
left my house at eight......a quarter after nine....at half past twelve ....
at half past two......At five I must have left......opened my front door at eight oclock or so....
gone to bed around a quarter after ten.....
memang layan.....smart...brilliant......aku suka......
tu pasal aku dok ulang 2-3 kali lagu nih
sempoi

and the lyrics macam memang kena dengan routine aku sebelum ni...ye la....masa pakai ex5 dulu bila time nak g keje morning shift,
i left my house at 7 la....(with my ex5 la)....
then park kat ERL station and naik ERL gi keje( kira naik train la cam dalam lyrics dia nih)
My train, Im certain, left the station just when it was due......(yep, every 28th minutes, and 58th minutes the train will left salak tinggi station for KLIA)
a matter of routine, i ve done it ever since i finished school...
huhuhuhuhu

I must have read the morning paper going into town
And having gotten through the editorial, no doubt I must have frowned
(memang aku frowned pon tambah bila baca editorial Utusan Melayu yg penuh racist tu pagi2 kat opisss....hehe:-D )

hahaha...ok lah....enjoy the lyrics and the videos...
thanks ABBA for the music

Must have left my house at eight, because I always do
My train, Im certain, left the station just when it was due
I must have read the morning paper going into town
And having gotten through the editorial, no doubt I must have frowned
I must have made my desk around a quarter after nine
With letters to be read, and heaps of papers waiting to be signed
I must have gone to lunch at half past twelve or so
The usual place, the usual bunch
And still on top of this Im pretty sure it must have rained
The day before you came

I must have lit my seventh cigarette at half past two
And at the time I never even noticed I was blue
I must have kept on dragging through the business
of the day
Without really knowing anything, I hid a part of me away
At five I must have left, theres no exception to the rule
A matter of routine, Ive done it ever since I finished school
The train back home again
Undoubtedly I must have read the evening paper then
Oh yes, Im sure my life was well within its usual frame
The day before you came

Must have opened my front door at eight oclock or so
And stopped along the way to buy some chinese food to go
Im sure I had my dinner watching something on tv

Theres not, I think, a single episode of dallas that I didnt see
I must have gone to bed around a quarter after ten
I need a lot of sleep, and so I like to be in bed by then I must have read a while
The latest one by marilyn french or something in that style
Its funny, but I had no sense of living without aim
The day before you came

And turning out the light
I must have yawned and cuddled up for yet another night
And rattling on the roof I must have heard the sound of rain
The day before you came








And rattling on the roof I must have heard the sound of rain
(yes, itr raining outside while i m writing this entry malam nih.....pehhh....memang deja vuu laaaa)
