As Above, So Below

I saw it, did you saw it too? I wonder. Perhaps another random thoughts. What does it take to do it in real life? What waits for us at the end of the tunnel? No one guarantees, but if you try, you sure will be able to do it. Hustle - that's the word. Hustle 24/7 is better than enslaved 9-5.

Towards the Shadows

What would you do if you know you are heading to the darkness? Not sure about you, but I'll bring my torch light.  Prepare the umbrella before the rain, torch before the dark, and mental before physical. Not easy, but doable. What you think you can achieve, you can achieve. Whether you are losing or winning, you are right. The moral of the story, trust in yourself. Have faith! You can do it.

Seeing Double

Have you ever wonder if there is a world in a mirror? Or was it just a reflection of our physical plane? Horror movies depict that ghosts might exist in mirrors, and even being trapped there. The reality is, there is so much knowledge we yet to discover. All we know now are limited to our technological advancement. Although historians believed that we actually were once an advance civilisation, those technologies are not available to public now. Seems like at this moment, only imaginary superhero has that power, an emblem of our wildest dream, where we are powerful beyond measure. But now, with advances in technology, we might be seeing time travel in the future. Who knows?  Only time can tell. Just another food for thought over the weekend.

Young Female Riders

In Malaysia, motorcycle is a must-have vehicles because of its relatively low cost and it is easy to be used. Having license or not is a different story because most of the time motorcycle is being used at the village. To be able to ride one is a symbol of liberation, where you can ride wherever and whenever you want, especially to the ones in high school. Riding motorcycle is cool, especially in the age where everyone is being sent back home by the parents, or some who are still walking. Brands such as Honda and Yamaha are the popular ones. EX-5 still remain as a legend in moped history. Regardless of the model, taking a moped for a ride and hang out with friends is an enjoyable things to do during weekend. After all, week of hard work is over. Have a good weekend!

The Face of Hotel 
Receptionist - by definition is a person employed in a hotel to receive guests and deal with their bookings (Oxford). However, their job is more than that. They carry the name of the hotel with them. The status of the hotel depends on how well they carry out their job. They carry the x-factor, where if executed properly, will make customer feel belonged to the hotel, especially the ones who is very polite even to a rude customer, and as a result, the probability of a customer to return will increase. A poor receptionist will break the impression, and customer will not go back again, ever. Not even when the receptionist changes. First impression matters, and are here to stay. If there is any receptionist reading this, I hope you will have a great time doing your job - do it passionately, with love. Let your love shines and touches every customer's heart, for we have so much negativity in this world, so a bit of love is truly appreciated. To everyone else, have a great weekend ahead with family!

The Tale of Working Mothers

Mothers - the real-life Wonder Woman. From the moment that woman delivers her first baby, she is already a wonder woman because  it is not easy to take care and raise one baby. That baby might be adorable, but a lot of the things that the baby needs and the hardship happens behind the scene. Crying in public space is just one of many challenges the baby brings forth.  Changing diapers, feeding them, breast-feeding; the list is endless. Regardless of many formula milks out there, the best milk is still from the mothers’. Should not be substituted with manufactured milk until the baby is at least 6 months old, although prolonged period is better. Otherwise, the baby might catch a tummy bug or chest infection in the first year. Breastmilk is produced on supply-and-demand basis - the more it was consumed, the more it will be produced. Good for the mother and overall family economic. Signs of enough breast milk includes, but not limited to, having good skin tone for the babies, the baby is happy after being fed, the overall process is easy and pain-free for the mother. However, it would be a challenge for the mother to breast-feed the baby while working, so the best alternative is to pump the breast-milk to be fed to the baby while the mother is working. Not easy, isn’t it? This is just the challenge when the baby is still small. As they grow up, with different attitude, the challenge increases.Therefore, love your mother, and your wife. For those who is getting married, get ready. Getting married is like preparing for a long journey together. It is fun, and challenging as well as shifting the paradigm. Whatever it is, best of luck and have a great, blessed weekend ahead!

Two is better than One

Travelling with friend is always a better option than solo, unless you want to be solo traveller, hence Lonely Planet. With the other traveller around, you will feel more comfortable as you can eliminate the awkwardness of being alone. Should anything happens to you, the other one can seek help from the locals, for example. Also, upon return to your hometown, there will be someone to talk about the things you saw throughout the journey of a lifetime. For example, being chased by wild boar at the Ulu Kapit, boating experience at “giham”, or long boat ride at Ulu Rajang. These are the unique stories to be told from the inland Sarawak. But if the travel is limited to town areas, then might as well talk about the best roti canai  in town, or laksa Sarawak et cetera. Whatever it is, if you go for an adventure or holiday, bring a friend. Better still, you bring your other half. It will make a world of a difference. Enjoy the journey!

The Irreversible Flow

Few things that can't be reversed one said or acted or flow: words, water and time. When dealing with any of these things, especially our words, we should be careful as it might hurt other like what a double-edged sword does. A smart man knows what to say, but a wise man knows whether to said it or not. Sometimes, silence is the best. 
Time once passed, it can't be reversed . In fact, it is our only asset in this time. With time, we can generate wealth, but not the other way round. The way you spend your time determines your destiny. Your habit holds the key to your destiny. Destiny is not certain, but aim high, you can direct it. Increase your probability of getting the desired destiny by installing the right habit inside your brain. Not easy, but doable. It would be much faster if you want it as much as you want the air. No air, no life. Go big, or go extinct. Good luck time-jægers!

Felis Catus

I love cats! I was blessed to be born in a place that has its capital named after cats (the capital of Sarawak is Kuching, meaning "cats" in Malay language, although local Sarawakian Malay calls cat "pusak". Unique, right?).
Legend has it that James Brooke and his friends was walking around an unknown place, so he asked the locals, what is the name of this beautiful place? But someone in the locals group saw a cat passing by, so he calls out cat, unintentionally loud. This caught James' attention and so that place was called Kuching (the proper spelling is "kucing", without "h". "H" was believed added to emphasis the original pronunciation by James Brooke). Cat is a wonderful creature, sleep at day time, but has an amazing reflexes and will always land on its feet when thrown. They keeps away rats too! Be good to cats, and they'll be good to you too. Even though they act cold, but actually they are observing you. After you gained their trust, they'll go to the level of rubbing their head against your feet while purring. That's heaven. To cats lover out there, have a purring weekend with your cats! And, have a great Friday everyone! 
From Malaysia with love, Claudius

Legendary Thread-Weaver

While the world embraces the advent of automated silicon-chipped,sewing machine, with more precise control and intricate weaving patterns, which back then only master tailor can do, some part of the land still embraces the more traditional sewing machine, which was passes down from one generation to another. The current generation does not owns it, but merely safe-keeping it for the future generations. Contrary to popular belief and horror stories, this machine is easy to use. It has manual controls as well - speed controls using foot pedals, the pattern - adjustable using few dials at the machine body and the end product is just as good as the other automated ones. Spinning the wheel often brings us back to revelry, a golden age where this machine was the best thing in town, and everyone in the neighbourhood were talking about it - an object of pride to wealthy owner, and an emblem of hustle for those who yet to own it. What a unique machine. Probably you can find an antique yet usable machine at your home - a family antiques. Who knows? By the way, have a great day / evening to thos reading this!

An Inch From Disaster

I wonder what was on the little mind of this crab, after the motorcyclist come and passed it by, almost crushing it. Probably it is busy praising its sea god for giving it an opportunity to live for another, completely ignoring me. Perhaps, I am just another beach visitor for it. Who knows? I can't speak crab language, though I wanted to. Perhaps Beastmaster can teach me some?
Anyway, to reflect it, in our life, sometimes we are unaware that we are so close to disaster everyday. An unclosed tap water, a plug, or a valve. In whatever we do, we must be vigilant and prudent, so that we are always away from the line of fire, away from danger. Stay safe peoples! Have a great day, while to some, good night!

The Face of Frontliner

Ever wonder how the frontliners (offshore Operations people) look like? Look no further, for you are looking at him. Even though Mr Terry looks like a Hulk Hogan here, he is no different to other peoples. Off-duty, they are like any normal person, have a family, kids as well as a career. However, when on-duty, putting on his Operations personae, he will be the judge and the executioners of all HSSE matters out there. Because of this brave men being the eye, the ear, the hand in HSSE matters and the decisions made, the other men offshore are able to carry out their duties with ease, knowing that there are men who will look after them in case of emergency. His face is the evidence of the long years he clocked offshore, a phase where he indirectly contributes to the national economical growth. Salute!

Lost in the Groove

I love music! Whenever I came across band performing at any place, I'll stop by and enjoy the music. Although here they are performing an unknown tune and song to me, the music is very pleasant to my ears. So I stop by, to capture the emotion and passion, and immortalised it in form of picture, unaltered until the end of time. Love how the guitarist and singer, both ladies, lost in the groove, feeling the lyrics and mood of the song, and releasing it in the form of 10kHz tranquillising sound. It's not easy to play a song, to learn an instrument sometimes took few months or years, and to master it is a journey of a lifetime, like a lost wanderer in the jungle of chords and notes. Appreciate local musicians, for they are the warrior of notes - God's gift to us. No music, no life.

Mental Occupation

At zebra-crossing from Suria KLCC to Avenue K, I made an interesting observation on these crossers. At a glance, it seems like they might know each other and probably has a bitter mood that day. However, if you look closely, they actually did not know each other and were just occupied mentally. So I ask myself, am I too focused to my future or my past that it robs my ability to focus on the present? A wise man said, past or future is an illusion. The only thing that's real is NOW, that is why it is called present, a gift from the Creator to us. So, let's focus on the NOW - seize the day (carpe diem). Have a great day ahead!

Land of Opportunity

For most people, America (USA) is a land of opportunity, where if people work hard enough, hustle day and night, they can achieve the American Dream, as symbolised by The Statue of Liberty. But for some people, Malaysia is a land of opportunity, where if they can work and hustle day and night, they can get whatever they want, and send back money to the families they left behind when they migrate here to Malaysia. Just like my new friend of mine in his picture, he came from Nepal all the way to Malaysia. Opportunity here is much better than at his country. He is not the only one, as there are few others. Many would think that these people causes all the social problems, but the locals also has their fair share, in fact, more than them. One fact that struct me most is that actually our land is full of opportunity, and yet there are still jobless locals out there. Being picky is one of the reason why, but unrealistic benefit and salary expectation is also one of the factor. Time and tide waits for no man. If you don't grab the opportunity, someone else will. If you admire a girl or a guy for some time, but no action or approach, then someone else will. You'll lose out. In the end, the opportunity goes to those who is willing to work. May the odds be ever in your favour.

Starhill Star-Man

One thing that I love about street photography is that, in Forrest Gump's word- it is like a box of chocolate; you'll never know what you might find. A walk around Bukit Bintang leads me to this lad, a good looking man of his prime. He did his best to look macho. I leave it to you to judge this Starman of Starhill. Further walk leads me down to more interesting peoples, which I will share later. The more I do street photography, the more I love it. A lot of us fears pointing a camera to another person and to shoot it, fearing the backlash from others. But in fact, no one is going to hurt you other than giving you the hostile look. So far, none hurt me. I'm thankful to God for that. Here's the thing - in whatever you do, you must be passionate about it. If I am not passionate, I won't walk few kilometres per day to document other people's lives. I can just use zoom lens. But that defeats the purpose of street photography, which you should be there, present at the moment, and letting your presence to influence your subject. Treat them as your friend, and they will do so too. Trust me. It works. Good luck!

An Evening at the Beach

Beach - God's blessing to mankind and animals. A place where thoughts merge - realism meeting fantasy - the medium between water and land, between wet and dry. A place where the romance between sea and land lives until  end of times. Sea breeze was cool, rushing to your face, probably their way to say hello. Small crabs rushing like mad at your feet, like a capoeira dancer, entertaining kids with their crazy antics. Some love to jog at the beach, some love to walk, while some love to ride their motorcycle, probably just want to go from one end to the other end. Such is my evening at the beach. How about you?

Sumandak Sabah 
Sabah, Land Below the Wind is one of the biggest territory at Borneo island. Blessed with abundance of tropical rainforest and consistent rain shower every year, Sabah is like a heaven for the birds and beasts of tropical rainforest. Among the greeneries, there lies the Sabahan  peopes, among them are the Kadazan, Dusun, Murut, Bajau, Suluk and many others. Sumandak is a Kadazan-Dusun term, which carries a meaning “lady”. These sumandaks will compete with one another every year, during “Kaamatan” Festival (Kadazan-Dusun’s Harvest Festival, with its climax on 31st May annually). Generally, Sabahan’s are very friendly and easy to talk to, and don’t be surprised with “bah” at the end of their sentences. Physically, they are fair-skinned and most of the time mistaken for a Chinese. Mix-marriages between Kadazan-Dusun and other races is quite common, especially with the physical barrier no longer exists, unlike before during the Golden years of Kadazan-Dusun ancient civilization times, where marriages are restricted between peoples and casts. Despite their national burden that weighs them down, they still manage to smile, which is a mark of an excellent emotional quotience. The best time to visit Sabah is during May every year, where it is easy to find people go “aramaiti” (merry-making). Who knows you might find the love of your life amongs these Sabahan peoples? They’ll say – buli bah kalau kau (which means, you can do it). Photo by amateur Leica photographer, Claudius.
